I Don't Like You Anymorev
Emma: "I love you, Dexter. I just don't like you anymore."
Dexter is a total a** at times, and loving him (even as a friend) can certainly be a challenge. It's one that Emma rises to, however. She's not afraid to call him out when he deserves it.

Not Someone, Youv
Dexter: "I need to speak to someone. Not someone - you."
When things go horribly wrong for Dexter, he automatically reaches out to Emma - even if they haven't talked for months. He may have a lot of casual flings (and one disastrous marriage), but he goes to the person that matters most when he needs real help (see: Emma).

A Scented Candle
Dexter: "If I could give you just one gift, do you know what it would be? Confidence. That or a scented candle."

Emma: "I don't want you thinking I'm bothered or anything about last night. I don't want your phone number, or letters or postcards. I don't want to get married to you. Definitely don't want to have your babies. Whatever happens tomorrow, we've had today. And if we should bump into each other sometime in the f*ture, well that's fine too. We'll be friends."
Emma has absolutely no idea how fateful this hookup with Dexter Mayhew really is - it will change both of their lives, for the better. And yes, they'll bump into each other and yes, they'll be friends.

I Fancy Everyonev
Dexter: "The problem is, I pretty much fancy everyone. It's like I've just got out of prison all of the time. It's a real problem."
Emma: "I can imagine..."
Dexter is a playboy, plain and simple. Handsome, successful, high-profile - a complete chick magnet and a total womanizer.

Emma: "Your wedding invitations are scented?!"
Emma: "No, Dex, money. They smell of money."

Dexter: "I'd still like to read that poetry. What rhymes with Dexter?"
Emma: "Prick. It's a half rhyme."

Nothing Good Was Ever Easy
Emma: "London's swallowed me up. I thought I'd make a difference, but no one knows I'm here."
Dexter: "Listen, listen. Nothing truly good was ever easy."
Emma is struggling to make it in London - and not doing very well. Dexter, in turn, is teaching in Paris, sleeping with his students, and generally being...Dexter. But his advice to Emma is spot on. Nothing good is easy - and that includes Dexter and Emma's relationship.
