Joanie: I've spent my whole life trying to be the opposite of Alison.
Luisa: But she loved you.
Joanie: I was the replacement child.

Are you sure it was suicide?


I'm not fucking you.


Noah: Come on, don't you feel anything for me anymore?
Helen: If I feel anything for you, I feel sorry for you. Because you've managed to turn 50 and not know how to be an adult.
Noah: Oh, and Sasha Mann does?
Helen: Yeah, I think so.
Noah: Come on, Helen, he's playing me ... he's pretending to be me. It's so obvious. You're in love with me.
Helen: He's you, but he's better. And please, just admit to yourself, the only reason you want me right now is because he does.
Noah: No, as usual, you're not listening to what I'm saying. I came here to tell you I love you. I've been thinking about it for a long time, and I know I've made some mistakes, but the only important thing is that I love you. I've always loved you.
Helen: I actually don't know what that word means to you.
Noah: It means that I deserve a second chance.
Helen: You had a second chance. Many times, and you fucked them all up, and I would be a fucking idiot to go back there.
Noah: Helen.
Helen: Noah, I don't love you anymore. I don't want your love. It terrifies me, and it's caused me nothing but pain. So, I'm done.

Way to glow up, Helen.

Helen: As what?
Helen's Friend: Sasha Mann's girlfriend.

Sierra: Could you watch him for me? I'm kind of desperate.

Furcat: Such a bubbling Petri dish of masant creativity.
Andrea: Andrea Rosman. Unlove your vaginas.
Furcat: Pleasure. Look, the truth is, I'm desperate for a date to my opening tomorrow. How about we fit you for some glass slippers so you can come along?
Whitney: I can't. We're about to open a new exhibition here, and I've got so much to do. Thank you, though.
Furcat: Okay, well how about I just leave this invitation here in case you can make it. Oh look, it says there's a plus one if you wanted to bring someone along. Look, I know we didn't part on the best of terms, but I am here to try to make it up to you.

Stacey: Dad! Happy Halloween.
Noah: Is it Halloween? I forgot.
Stacey: Shocker.

Look at you, Doll Face. You look just like Cinderella.


Joanie: How much do I owe you?
Man: It's on the house.
