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.

Helen: What?

Helen: Who?
Noah: Sasha! Sasha!

You can't see yourself, Noah, and that's why you never get what you want.


Reporter: The early reviews are really good.
Noah: So I hear, I try not to pay attention to those things.
Reporter: I have to admit, I wasn't such a fan of Descent, although clearly the book didn't suffer from lack of fans, but the autobiography of Jack Hunter really moved me. It's a much more vulnerable, mature piece of writing.
Noah: Thanks. I mean, I wrote it in prison, partly, I wish it all was gratifying, but I...
Reporter: You were in prison for killing your brother in law, right?
Noah: Uhh, my ex-wife's brother in law, yeah, but there's plenty of stuff out there about it. I really don't want to make this...
Reporter: No, no, no. It's just that years ago, you were a public school teacher living in Brooklyn. Then, one summer, you wrote a novel that was an overnight sensation, you left your wife and family, you married your mistress, you became suddenly famous. I don't know, let's say you drank a little bit of your own kool-aid? You became increasingly arrogant, self-absorbed, reckless, until one fateful night on the dark roads of Montauk, you hit someone, you fled the scene. I'm going somewhere with this.
Noah: I hope so.
Reporter: A fall from grace. You went to prison, you served time, you lost everything. Now, you're out, you've gone back to teaching underprivileged kids, you have moved to be closer to your family, you seem to be living a quiet life now, you've come full circle, so would you say that the redemption of Noah Solloway is complete?

Helen: I just wasn't prepared for how permanent it is.
Sasha: Death is relentless.

Noah: This is my daughter.
[Sasha kisses Whitney's hand.]
Whitney: Hi.
Noah: Who is very young, very engaged.

Boss Lady: You won't like what I have.
Joanie: Where is it?
Boss Lady: Montauk.

Dating a woman of color might be one of the coolest things my dad's ever done.


Sasha: Mmm. Fuck me.
Noah: What's wrong?
Sasha: I just can't drink coffee with cream. It's like a drink for children.
