During her screen test for the part of Carmen Morales in The L Word, Limón ad libbed a Spanish phrase into Kate Moennig's ear ("Quiero lamerte hasta que te vengas en mi boca mil veces" - "I want to lick you until you come in my mouth a thousand times"); the phrase was written into the show and used in the series by Sarah Shahi's portrayal of the character.[1]
