Empire Season 6 Episode 1: "What Is Love" Quotes
Andre: I just don't want to let you down. I'm doing everything I can to rebuild Empire back, Pop. Empire is being attacked on all sides.
Lucious: That's the nature of a kingdom. It's always under attack, and the problem is, I raised you to be a prince, but a prince has no real power. You only have power when you become king, and as a king, you will have to defend your kingdom by any means. And when the time comes, you'll know exactly what you need to do.
Publicist: Your trial run has been fantastic, and the producers want you to be a permanent co-host. They just need to know that Lucious and Empire are finally behind you.
Cookie: That's none of their damn business, baby.
Publicist: Is it a problem? Do you even know where Lucious is?
Cookie: I don't okay, but nobody gets to tell Cookie Lyon what she can and cannot do.
Publicist: Can you stop referring to yourself in the third person?
Cookie: Well, Cookie Lyon loves it, so get used to it. Look, I am proud of what my family did with Empire. And Lucious is my husband.
Publicist: But you left him. That was your choice. Why not make it public?
Cookie: My choice, my damn business.
Tracy: Hey, Andre. Maybe you should make an announcement about me?
Andre: Tracy, I... what are you doing here?
Tracy: Where else would I be? I'm Empire's newest co-owner. Hi.
Cookie: Look, when the hell is this doctor going to get here?
Andre: He'll be here soon, mom.
Cookie: Look, Andre, I know Empire is on your mind, but...
Andre: Pop trusted me with Empire, Ma. I can't let it fail.
Cookie: Boy, that thing will work itself out, OK? Andre, your health is more important, baby. We gotta make sure your heart is fine and that cancer is cleaned out.
[Lucious enters room, dressed in white.]
Andre: Anybody see you?
Lucious: No, I'm good.
Cookie: What the hell is he doing here?
Andre: We're not here for the doctor, OK? The feds are coming for Empire. We're about to take a huge hit. We need the evidence on Damon Cross to clear Pop's name and it's going to take us-- all of us, Ma, working together to do it. This is about family. Our legacy is bigger than your marriage. Now, you two can kiss and make up later or not. I-- we need a solution now. I'll give you a minute to work this out. We have 30 minutes.
Cookie: I'm going to beat your ass.
Andre: Work it out, Ma.
Cookie: What's this, the third coming of Christ?
