"Cashmere Mafia: Dangerous Liaisons (#1.3)" (2008)
Caitlin Dowd: There's a new blog out called 'Regrets Only' which posts gossip on women in business. Read what the latest post has.
Zoe Burden: [reading from the printout] "Which Lily Parish Cosmetic executive has been seen canoodoling all over town with her hot, chocolate ad agency rep? These ladies are sharing more than makeup tips."
Mia Mason: Canoodoling? What the hell is that supposed to mean?
Caitlin Dowd: Never mind. "Hot chocolate"? What does that make me?
Mia Mason: A marshmellow?

Zoe Burden: [about Katherine] I hate what she's good at.
Eric Burden: Which is?
Zoe Burden: I mean the rack, the bod, the whole blond man-trap thing.
Eric Burden: Man-trap?

Juliet Draper: Bobby Walsh is in town.
Zoe Burden: Now? I thought...
Juliet Draper: Apparently he couldn't wait. I thought I see him tonight.
Zoe Burden: Talk about burying the lead.
Juliet Draper: I didn't say anything back there because I didn't want to get the cheering squad all riled up. I'm starting to have second thoughts.
Zoe Burden: You want me to talk you out of it? In which case, I would open with the remote, but undeniable possibility of contracting as STD. Then there is the Fatal Attraction syndrome.
Juliet Draper: Davis has been on his best behavior.
Zoe Burden: That's big of him.
Juliet Draper: You know, he was even talking about romantic getaways, going back to this resort we loved in Anguilla.
Zoe Burden: Wow! You ready for that?
Juliet Draper: Not at all. I'm starting to think Cilla was more than the meaningless fling that Davis makes her out to be.
Zoe Burden: What makes you say that?
Juliet Draper: That blog. A fling wouldn't lead to that kind of vitriol. Clearly, this was more. Hell hath no fury like a mistress scorned.


"Cashmere Mafia: Conference Call (#1.2)" (2008)

Juliet Draper: [to Caitlin] You're gay now?
Mia Mason: Oh, she's not gay. You know what? She's hip. It's the thing to do. It's like when everyone was pregnant, you know. Lesbians are the new babies.
Caitlin Dowd: Excuse me, can the possible lesbian answer that question? I don't know if I'm gay or I'm straight. I don't want to join a union yet or anything. I met someone I like. It happens to be a woman. That's all I got. Just please, be supportive. I don't want your opinion or permission. And don't act like this never happened to any of you.
Mia Mason: Well, I went to Wellesley. It's practically part of the curriculum.
Zoe Burden: I made out with Jenny McGruber at summer camp. She was really good at lanyard. I had some amazing plastic jewelry that summer.
Juliet Draper: I was trying to process one lesbian...
[stares at Mia and Zoe]
Juliet Draper: Now I have three.

Zoe Burden: Let's do you next. What man do you want from this list?
Caitlin Dowd: I'm good.
Zoe Burden: What? What do you mean "You're good?" You're never "good".
Caitlin Dowd: Thanks a lot. I am... have a date.
Zoe Burden: Really?
Juliet Draper: You did mention last week you kissed someone.
Mia Mason: You've been holding out on us. With whom?
Caitlin Dowd: With a woman.
[Mia, Zoe, and Juliet all stare wide-eyed and shocked at Caitlin]
Mia Mason: You really have been holding out on us!


"Cashmere Mafia: Yours, Mine and Hers (#1.6)" (2008)
Zoe Burden: Forget this one deal, which I made happen. I have generated more business for Gorham Sutter than anyone else. And yet the only people who get promoted around here are men; white men, to be blunt.
Henry Gorham: I don't like what you're insinuating.
Zoe Burden: I am not insinuating anything, Henry. I'm saying it straight out. It doesn't matter to you, does it, that I have given everything to this firm, including my integrity?
Henry Gorham: Integrity? Come on, this is Wall Street. As far as a promotion goes, well, you know that that is a tricky process. Your time will come.
Zoe Burden: Oh, I know it will, Henry. It just won't come here.
Henry Gorham: Well, not if you keep up like this.
Zoe Burden: Don't worry, I'm not going to. I quit.

Cynthia Tate: Zoe, I know how difficult it is for women to rise in this field, mothers especially.
Zoe Burden: Oh, the stories I could tell. But to work with a woman of your stature on something as meaningful as this, I just... I would love it.
Cynthia Tate: That's what I like about women; they talk to each other. And if this moves forward, I'll need someone to talk to.
Zoe Burden: Me too.


"Cashmere Mafia: The Deciders (#1.4)" (2008)
Katherine Cutler: Zoe, Clayton promoted me because he has confidence in my abilities. He keeps telling me to take more initiative.
Zoe Burden: Yeah, and we're all very appreciative of your abilities. But Clayton isn't handling this deal, I am. Which means that...
Katherine Cutler: [intrupting] That you're pulling rank.
Zoe Burden: That I'm responsible for everything that happens on this deal. Which means I lead, you follow. And you don't make a move without clearing it with me first.
Katherine Cutler: Okay! I hear you and I get it. I'm really sorry. Would it be okay with you if I peed before heading back into the conference room?


"Cashmere Mafia: Dog Eat Dog (#1.7)" (2008)
Zoe Burden: The only reason you'd leave the office to track me down is if you needed something from me.
Clayton: I don't need anything. But now that we've landed Tate, don't you want to come back to the office and put his money to work?
Zoe Burden: Tate wants to know where I am, and you don't have an answer.
Clayton: Actually, I told him you were having your eyes done.
Zoe Burden: You what?


"Cashmere Mafia: Stay with Me (#1.5)" (2008)
Nicholas Branch: How many of the guys in the office has Katherine been through?
Zoe Burden: One that I know of. How did you know?
Nicholas Branch: It's a type. In my office, there's a Claudia and a Joelle.
