New, rare, or hard to Google:

"Brandi is Brandi all day. fake."  ("All day" = sincerely and

"There's 'fem,' there's 'stud' (always givin' it, never takin' it), and
there's 'stem' - a little between....I date stud girls and I like
strap-ons."  (Lesbian terminology.)

"Oh! Like a 'shim'!" (Gay guy's recognition of the inspiration
behind "stem.")
"She's the hooker of the house." ("Whore" in the weakened "slut" sense; no

You dogged me on national television!" ("Treated me with
contempt; humiliated me; made me look very bad.")

"And then we pull - if I like you." ("Draw close; become friends.")
