Needless to say we were spinning by nights end. Here are the quotes I overheard, from what I remember:

Quote 1:
Overhearing a well dressed woman reading her friend:
"You can lay all the eggs you want honey but they will NEVER be a Cadbury!"

Quote 2:
"Girl are you wearing.."
"Yes sister, it's a table cloth, don't ask."

Quote 3:
"Dude, use my dealer, he has a press pass. They think he is an editor from Columbia!"

Quote 4:
Before Billy Farrel was taking a girls photo she looked at her date and said,
"Babe can you be on titty tissue patrol?"

Quote 5:
"Oh you know a boy in a pastel sweater set is up to no good."
