Nell [to Olivia]

Poppy: Losing a child. Do you think there's a thing worse than that?

Steven: Just, just tell me what a shitty husband I was. Just go ahead.
Hugh: I'm so sorry. I'm just so sorry, son.

Shirley: Yeah. Yeah! You kiss my husband, that's what you get. You get punched in the fucking boob. And you get evicted from my fucking house.
