One Day At A Time Season 4 Episode 1: "Checking Boxes" Quotes
Elena: How do you do it?
Penelope: Do what, honey?
Elena: Be alone, go through life without a partner who cares about you.
Penelope: Okay, well that's one way of putting it. Actually, I've been talking about this in therapy, and I love being alone, it's the best. And we're strong women who don't need a partner to define us.
Leslie: Let me just clear up some things. I am Dr. Leslie Berkowitz. Penelope's boss, and also I'm Lydia's exclusive, non-sexual, platonic companion.
Brian: What does that mean?
Leslie: I don't know.
Syd: But no high school couples make it through college. Are we just fooling ourselves? We don't wanna be those people.
Elena: You know what? Screw it. Let's be those people.
Alex: Listen, Mom, you're a strong independent woman who doesn't need a man.
Penelope: Yup, got it, I agree. But it's okay for me to admit that I can still be a feminist badass and want a boyfriend.
Alex: Why don't you do a trial run? Like, you go to the bathroom, and Syd, you try not to file a missing persons' report.
Elena: Haha. We can be apart, Alex.
Syd: And they make you wait twenty-four hours.
