Ambitions Season 1 Episode 3: "Welcome to Birmingham" Quotes
Security Detail: Apparently, it’s happening right now, Mayor.
Evan: Why wasn’t I told about this?
Security Detail: They made it sound like they just found out. Here’s a text.
Evan: Heads up, they’re bringing the mayor’s mistress in.
Amara: Let me inform you why you’re here. Poor judgment. You’re having an affair with Mayor Lancaster. I know what it’s like to get caught up. You never think it’s going to go as far as it does until it’s too late, and then you’re deep in a pile of your own making.
Daphne: If what you’re saying is true, and I’m not saying that it is, having a relationship with a co-worker could be considered ill-advised, but it’s not illegal.
Amara: So, you admit your personal relationship with Mayor Lancaster.
Daphne: The only thing I’m saying is that I do my job, and I do it well. All of my contracts for the city are above board and beyond approach.
Amara: Hmm. I mention your affair with the mayor, and you immediately feel the need to start talking about your handling of city contracts. Interesting.
Daphne: As amusing as this little get together has been, I have to get back to work.
Amara: I’d sit back down if I was you, Miss. Manning.
Daphne: What exactly are you accusing me of?
Amara: Accepting kickbacks, contracts skimming. If these allegations are true, then you could be looking at serious time in federal prison. And if you’re thinking about protecting anyone, just remember that you’ll fall first and hardest.
Daphne: Let me guess, Kent Hamilton stuck you on me. That little Amara: worm can make a name for himself by putting down the Mayor.
Evan: What the hell are you doing here?
Bella: I’m here for a business meeting. You’re always telling me to be my own advocate, so here I am.
This could be either the best feeling in the world or the worst. You choose Mr. Mayor. Get me that airport concession.Bella
Titus: I’m here for a reason.
Lori: And I’m here for the long haul. Too bad you don’t realize that’s not on the cards for you.
