  • Madison Montgomery: What do you expect to get with that stupid cake?
  • Nan: Just being neighborly. What do you expect to get with that dress?
  • Madison Montgomery: Laid. He's going to be my fall fling.


  • Fiona Goode: It's a dance, a dance no one ever had to teach me. A dance I've known since I first saw my reflection in my father's eyes. My partners have been princes and starving artists. Greek gods and clowns. And every one of them certain they lead. but it's always my dance. I make the first move, which is no move at all. I've always just understood that they will eventually find themselves in front of me. Primitive, beautiful animals. Their bodies responding to the inevitability of it all. It is my dance and I have performed it with finesse and abandon with countless partners. Only the faces change. And all this time I never suspected the night would come when the dance would end.



  • Queenie: You best put that food down in front of me before I frisbee this plate at your head.


  • Fiona Goode: Bury her deep. God knows what all that shit in her body will do to the lawn when it comes up in the spring.
