Memorable Moments


Karen: You're not in love with me, Hank. You're in love with the idea—the idea of love.

Karen: What would you do if our little spawn actually became, like, a rock star?

Hank Moody: I would be really proud of her.

Karen: You would?

Hank Moody: And I would be there to help pump her stomach when she OD'd.

Hank Moody: What is your name, by the way?

Venice Beach Girl: Wouldn't you rather just fuck me and never know?

Hank Moody: Oh, fuck. Who says romance is dead?
