Girl, you're lucky I don't snatch your wig ... and your edges!

Damon: Hold my balls.
Giselle: We have a problem, Damon.

Andre: Let's lay some ground rules for the ceremony, shall we?
Lucious: Ground rules?
Andre: There will be no foolishness or Lyon nonsense of any kind. This is our day. And we will not be upstaged, right honey?
Lucious: What do you mean upstaged?
Hakeem: Yeah, like when you married Anika -- at my wedding!

Cookie: To the new first couple of Empire. Come on, honey.
Teri: Uh, you'll have to excuse me. I'm not feeling very well.
Cookie: Oh, is she pregnant again? I would be so happy if she is pregnant again.
Hakeem: She tripping.

Cookie: How did you get those damn drugs out? We TSA'd your ass before we left the house.
Candace: Did you hide those drugs in your...
Cookie: Uh-Uh, I don't need that visual.

I don't want to have to deal with you like this for one more second.

Andre: This isn't a negotiation. Do as I say or you will be replaced.
Treasure: Andre, what happened to me is your fault.
Devon: Everybody relax, we all on the same team here.
Andre: When I want your opinion Romeo, I'll ask for it. Instead of worrying about Treaure, maybe you should focus on the other ladies of your life.

Andre: I've lined up several performances. You'll be lip-synching to a backup track.
Treasure: A what? No, people will notice. I have a responsibility to my fans, Andre.

If you go digging up bones, something ugly always comes up.

Lucious: What the hell is going on here? Your assistant tells me that you are setting up Yana's stage concept for the music weekly show? She's not ready for that.
Becky: I think it would be a really great way to get her ready for bigger venues.
Lucious: No, no, no. I completely disagree, Becky.
Becky: Oh, no, you don't have to agree. Yana's contract is with Bossy and that's me.
Yana: Hey, Lucious, I wanna do this.
Lucious: No, no you don't understand. I don't expect you to understand -- that's not your job. I mean, your job is to listen to the 30 years of experience I have in this business.
Becky: Ohhhh.
Lucious: And to follow my advice.
Becky: Like a good little girl, huh?
Lucious: Please, give me a minute.
Becky: You're good. I'm good.
Lucious: Yana is my artist.
Becky: And this is my label.
Lucious: Oh, you're going to play that game?
Becky: Oh no, I'm not playing any game. The thing is you spoke your peace and I heard you. I hope you felt heard, but at the end of the day, you know, I work for the artist. The artist look at me in my face, and told me that she was ready, and you know what? I believe her.

I don't want to live on any more secrets or lies.

Candace: Why don't we have a toast to Cookie divorcing Lucious?
Carol: Oh, yes.
