Pose Season 1 Episode 6: "Love Is the Message" Quotes
Angel: We didn't have sex the first time. He mostly wanted to talk. It wasn't dirty or nothin.
Patty: Did he talk about me?
Angel: Not really, but I already knew he was married, if that's what you're asking. He took off his ring and tried to hide it, but I always know. And I never feel guilty either. I figure, who am I to judge what goes on between two people. Why they need what they need.
Patty: You did -- you did have sex?
Angel: Uh huh.
Patty: Did he use protection?
Angel: Every time. We not together. I was the one who broke it off. I feel like he wanted to keep me. Like a doll. That's all I ever wanted. But when I had it, I just felt like I wasn't nothing until he decided to come home and play with me.
Patty: I understand.
Patty: How could a woman be a drag queen?
Angel: I'm a transsexual.
Patty: No, I don't believe you.
Angel: Why thank you. That's a compliment, you know.
Patty: That's not possible. I mean, Stan would never do that. You're a woman.
Angel: 100 percent.
Patty: Prove it.
Angel: What? You wanna see my dick?
Angel: I'm sorry for what I did to you, and I'm here to talk, but I got boundaries. I'm not bothered about any part of who I am except that. Everything I can't have in this world is because of that thing down there. If you wanna see who I am, that's the last place you should look.
Pray: You couldn't have done this shit in private? After all the times I've been there for you. After all the secrets I've held for you.
Blanca: Pray, listen --
Pray: No, you listen. You all need to get it into your thick ass skulls. When I'm standing behind that podium, I'm the one that keeps that crowd hyped. I'm the one that makes sure there's a flow to the proceedings! If you don't like the music I'm playin', don't show up.
Blanca: We didn't mean upset you.
Pray: Well you did! My life ain't never been easy. You of all people should understand that. My boyfriend is dying. I wish I could rewind and go back to a simpler time when my life wasn't consumed with drugs and disease. I've buried more friends in the last year more than any of you can count. And when it's all over, who knows how many of us will be left.
Derek: Oh, you're talking big now because your girls are here?
Blanca: I'm not looking to be somebody's plaything. I want romance. I want to fall in love. I deserve that. Not some bumped up boy toy.
Lulu: Girl, you ain't missin' out on anything. Derek's like a vacation. He just never lasts long enough.
