Boys on the Side Quotes

Mary-Louise Parker as Robin

  • (Mary-Louise Parker) "But this person who dumped her, she was gay, right?"
  • (Drew Barrymore) "Yeah, but even with gay girls there are no guarantees. They're very emotional. That's about all I know. They love uniforms and don't break their hearts."
  • (Mary-Louise Parker) "Uniforms?"
  • (Drew Barrymore) "Oh, yeah, all kinds. Especially UPS."
  • (Unnamed) "Are you a lesbian too, Ms. Nickerson?"
  • (Mary-Louise Parker) "No sir but at times I understand the inclination."
  • (Mary-Louise Parker) "I don't know what it is but there's something that goes on between women. You men know that because it's the same for you. I'm not saying one sex is better then the other. I'm just saying, like speaks to like. Love or whatever doesn't always keep. So you found out what does, if you're lucky."
  • (Mary-Louise Parker) "Don't you knock?"
  • (Whoopi Goldberg) "Not in a public toilet, no."

  • (Whoopi Goldberg) "-- Do you miss it?"
  • (Mary-Louise Parker) "What?"
  • (Whoopi Goldberg) "Sex."
  • (Mary-Louise Parker) "Yeah, I do -- You know what's weird? You never know the last time you sleep with somebody it's the last time. You're thinking: "Oh, we got problems, we got work to do," you know, but you never think -- and then you break up and a month later you look back and you go: "Oh, that was it." That Tuesday or Friday or whenever, and you wished you paid attention because it was the last time -- Well."
  • (Unnamed) "One last time: are; you; gay?"

Anita Gillette as Elaine

  • (Anita Gillette) "I do the best I can, honey. I know it's not enough, and I'm sorry. But that's what you get in life, you know? You get whoever you end up with. Whoever is willing to stick by you, and fight for you, when everyone else is gone. And it ain't always who you expect. But you just have to make do."
  • (Anita Gillette) "So what? She still should grab him. Believe me I know what she's gonna have to go through. You know, I'm a feminist too. I was a single mother after your father left. You think that was easy? I even voted for Carter twice. But you can't fight nature. God knows, you girls keep trying. Treating your men like side dishes. Stick a fork in when needed-just like men used to treat us."
