Jessica: How did you get in here?
Malcolm: You may recall a certain secret tunnel under our home?
Ainsley: Oh, the one murderers use.

Malcolm: I don't need a lawyer. I need to start solving this case.
Dani: You need to stop lying to us.
Malcolm: You need to start believing me.
JT: Um, do you guys wanna --
Malcolm: Talk about how I'm being framed? Yah.

Edrisa: Bright! 
Malcolm: I won't. I promise.
Edrisa to herself: He didn't want me to kiss him, right?

Martin: I may have started this, but you can end it. You stop Endicott, save our family.
Malcolm: How?
Martin: By killing him. It's the only way. In your heart, you know that.
Ainsley: He's not a killer.
Martin: He's a whitly. He'll know what to do.

I'm taking Jessica home, and I'm coming for your company, your reputation, and your freedom.


Sophie: I'm sorry. I didn't get your name.
Malcolm: Malcolm. Malcolm Whitly. Your nametag says Dr. Sarah. But that's not right, is it? You're Sophie Sanders. The girl in the box.
Sophie: And you're the boy in the basement.

Edrisa: How much of that did you hear?
Malcolm: Enough.
Edrisa: And to think, I was just about to start a meaningful female friendship with Dani. Maybe.

Malcolm: Gil's going to make it.
Dani: Sorry for doubting you.
Malcolm: I doubt myself all the time.
Dani: We're going to get you out of this, Bright. 

I know that Malcolm didn't kill anyone. Just let me find a way to prove it.


Jessica: Gil, we didn't miss our window. I slammed it shut.
Gil: You were right to. I met Jackie. Had a whole life. We moved on, Jess, no regrets.
Jessica: I have regrets. I do. I told you we were from different worlds.
Gil: We are.
Jessica: That's not why I ended things. I was scared. You were the one good thing in my son's life. I let you believe that you weren't good enough for me because it was easier than admitting that I would never be good enough for you.
Gil: You're good enough, Jess. You have always been good enough.

Jessica: What is wrong with me? What is it about me that I attract these horrible men?
Gil: There is nothing wrong with you, and there are good men out there too.
Jessica: I had a chance with a good man. I screwed it up.
Gil: We both did.

Jessica: I'd say that was a lowlight.
Martin: You slept with him, didn't you? Good thing you never say no.
