Quotes by or about Candance from The L Word.

Alice: "Did you fall in love?"
Bette: "No. I love Tina. Tina is the only person that I'm in love with."
Alice: "But you're still sitting on Candace's face."
Bette: "Actually, I'm not. I told you, I ended it as soon as I could."
Alice: "As soon as you could? What are you, like, a sex addict now?"
Bette: "No, I'm not a sex addict. Jesus, Alice. You know, I think calling sex an addiction is just an excuse for bad behavior, and I know that I behaved badly, but I'm prepared to take responsibility for it."
Alice: "No, you behaved really badly."
Bette: "I know that it sounds like an excuse, but you know what? The fact is, she disappeared on me. She was depressed and she was completely wrapped up in herself, and I tried to talk to her about it, but she completely shut me out."
Alice: "For how long?"
Bette: "Two or three months."
Alice: "Out of seven years? I think you could have waited."
Bette: "She abandoned me as much as I abandoned her. We both did it."
Alice: "Yeah, but only one of you was having an orgasm."
Bette: "Fuck you, Alice."
