"American Horror Story: Boy Parts (#3.2)" (2013)
Zoe Benson: [asking about the song playing] Who sings this?
Misty Day: Who sings this? Fleetwood Mac! Stevie Nicks is my hero.
Zoe Benson: That's Stevie Nicks from American Idol?
Misty Day: Stevie Nicks. The White Witch. The only witch before you I've ever known.
Zoe Benson: She's an actual witch?
Misty Day: Listen to the lyrics, This song was her anthem... doesn't it just penetrate your soul and tell the truth about everything you've ever felt in your whole life?
Zoe Benson: Yeah, totally.

Madison Montgomery: Zoe, look around this room. Okay, what do you see?
Zoe Benson: Tragedy.
Madison Montgomery: I see potential. Look, nice legs over here. A great set of guns.
[chuckles]
Madison Montgomery: I wonder if he's a show-er or a grower.
Zoe Benson: What's your point, Madison?
Madison Montgomery: We take the best boy parts, we attach them to Kyle's head, and we build the perfect boyfriend.
Zoe Benson: Is this just a joke to you?
Madison Montgomery: No, it's a challenge. All we have to do is follow this recipe. Find me a saw.

Zoe Benson: No! No, stop! Kyle! No! Look, maybe it would have been better for you to stay dead. I don't know! But I couldn't forgive myself if I didn't try.
Misty Day: I forgive you.
[Zoe screams]
Misty Day: Even though you drew me out here. Turn around. Make a right.

Zoe Benson: Do you really think that's going to work?
Misty Day: I know it will. This stuff is the shit. Literally. Louisiana swamp is full of Spanish moss and alligator dung. Amazing healing properties.

Fiona Goode: Idiots. Have you any idea what's going on out there? Now I forgave your ham-handed mass-murder business with the bus - over-exuberance of youth and all that. But if you haven't got the goddamn brains to know that when strangers come asking questions, we close ranks, then I fear our line is truly at an end.
Zoe Benson: But they knew so much already.
Fiona Goode: I couldn't toast a piece of bread with the heat they were putting on you!


"American Horror Story: The Magical Delights of Stevie Nicks (#3.10)" (2014)
Madison Montgomery: Well, that was a morbid field trip.
Zoe Benson: Queenie's dead.
Madison Montgomery: We don't know that. They haven't released the names. She could be at the Souplantation, you know how much that bitch loves a bottomless bowl. Should we go to the morgue?
Zoe Benson, Nan: No.
Madison Montgomery: For witches, you guys are *such* squares.

Madison Montgomery: That swamp bitch can't even spell her own name, and now she gets the keys to the kingdom? I mean, I came back from the dead.
Zoe Benson: Yeah. Misty brought you back.
Nan: I could be the Supreme.
Madison Montgomery: Yeah, the mind reading's a real party trick, Mumbles the Clown.
Nan: My powers are growing. I can do mind control.
Madison Montgomery: Prove it.
Nan: Put out that cigarette.
[Madison puts out her cigarette]
Nan: Now stick it in your vagina.
Zoe Benson: Nan, stop! Both of you skanks, enough!

Zoe Benson: Madison can't be the Supreme.
Nan: She's selfish and she's a whore.
Zoe Benson: I didn't realize this before, but we can't survive on our own. The sisterhood protects each of us.
Nan: If I was the Supreme, I would only do good.
Zoe Benson: I believe that. You don't have a mean bone in your body. Maybe you're the kind of leader we need.

Nan: I hear something.
Zoe Benson: Yeah. You always hear something.

Joan Ramsey: I think the fondest memory I have of Luke was when he was nine. He had made the most adorable little cross out of driftwood.
Nan: Where's his body?
Zoe Benson: I think she meant to ask, where do you plan to have the funeral?
Joan Ramsey: Well, there will be a service in our church, but Luke is here... now.
[Sets urn on the table]
Joan Ramsey: I had him cremated. Ashes to ashes, dust to dust.
Nan: You... bitch!


"American Horror Story: The Axeman Cometh (#3.6)" (2013)
Zoe Benson: You left your lives and came all the way across to country just to puss out now? If this is all the fight we have left in us at the end of our race, witches deserve to die.

Zoe Benson: Is there anyone that doesn't have a fan site?
Nan: I don't.

Zoe Benson: I'll figure out what to do with Kyle.
Misty Day: I'm not taking him. He's a walking tornado. You made him. He's your problem now. Who's taking me home?
Zoe Benson: It's late. Why don't you stay the night, sleep in a real bed for a change?
Misty Day: No, thanks. I need to be alone.
Zoe Benson: I thought you were looking for your tribe.
Misty Day: I was. And I am. This ain't it. I got bad vibes. Real bad. There's something foul in this house.

Zoe Benson: [Shows Madison's corpse to Misty] What can you do?
Misty Day: I can help you dig a hole. She's already rotting. Plus, she's missing an arm.

Queenie: Look, I've been taking care of myself for a really long time, so I'm not sure I need some white girl sorority sisters to cover my ass. And what is this green shit?
Zoe Benson: It's not a sorority. It's a coven. And this is absinthe, drink of the divine. Which we are.


"American Horror Story: Protect the Coven (#3.11)" (2014)
Zoe Benson: They drowned her. Why would they kill Nan?

Madison Montgomery: What's the deal, Zoe? We were supposed to share him, then you had to go fall in love with him.
Zoe Benson: No, I didn't.
Madison Montgomery: So it wouldn't bother you if I got on my knee pads and blew him, right here, right now?
Zoe Benson: If he wants it, be my guest.
Madison Montgomery: Thanks. You're a peach.
Kyle Spencer: No! Not anymore. I love Zoe.
Madison Montgomery: You think you can just throw me away for some junior varsity mall rat?

Madison Montgomery: Oh, what have we here, a romantic bubble bath?
Zoe Benson: I was trying to figure out what happened to Nan.
Madison Montgomery: Ugh.
Zoe Benson: Don't you care at all?
Madison Montgomery: Have you met me?
Zoe Benson: Misty was right. We should have let you rot.

Myrtle Snow: Come in Zoe, sit down. I have something for you. Good God, chickie, don't look at it! You'll be blinded by the sheer craftsmanship.
Zoe Benson: Um... okay. What is it?
Myrtle Snow: My only possession of value. A sapphire and topaz harvester ant made for me by Joel Arthur Rosenthal, the Fabergé of our time. The harvester ant is one of *the* most venomous creatures in the world, along with Fiona, and JAR - as the world knows my dear Joel - toiled on it for months.
Zoe Benson: Do you want me to wear it?
Myrtle Snow: You could never pull it off, darling. Only Lee Radziwill and myself could do it justice. Now listen to me carefully: I want you to hock it in case of emergency.
Zoe Benson: I'm completely lost here.
Myrtle Snow: You're leaving this coven, Zoe. And you're taking Kyle with you.
Zoe Benson: I do love Kyle, Myrtle... But I'm not leaving.
Myrtle Snow: I watched you and Kyle together at Nan's funeral. Such a pair. So much in love. As the great Keats would say, "More happy love! More happy, happy love! Forever warm and still to be enjoyed. Forever panting and forever young." I had a love like that once. Egon von Furstenberg. He dumped me, but everything worked out all right in the end. You know why? because he went on to marry the divine Diane. And without Egon's support, Diane von Furstenberg never would have created the greatest invention of the century, the wrap dress! If you stay here, your life is in grave danger.
Zoe Benson: I can handle Madison.
Myrtle Snow: She'd slit your throat then sleep like a baby. I understand Madison. The depth of her cynicism. Go. You and Kyle. Run away together and start your life over.
Zoe Benson: I'm committed to this coven.
Myrtle Snow: So was I, and I burned at the stake for it.
Zoe Benson: What if I'm the next Supreme?
Myrtle Snow: All the more reason to run. If Madison doesn't end you, Fiona will. Zoe... you have a boy that loves you.
Zoe Benson: Because he's damaged goods.
Myrtle Snow: [slaps] How dare you be so unromantic and so very, very selfish. Our dear Cordelia plucked her eyes out to protect this coven, and you have the gall to ignore my words of warning and support? Now... take these tickets to Epcot and my JAR jewels and pack your bags.


"American Horror Story: The Sacred Taking (#3.8)" (2013)
Myrtle Snow: Mothballs and history. It's a cocktail I swoon for.
Misty Day: I feel like a queen.
Madison Montgomery: How does putting on this smelly old stuff help us get rid of Fiona?
Cordelia Foxx: It's part of a ceremony called the "Sacred Taking," which allows for the ascension of the new Supreme.
Zoe Benson: And we're sure Misty's the next Supreme?
Myrtle Snow: I'm certain of her credentials. She's brought back more people from the dead than Jesus Christ.
Madison Montgomery: [to Zoe] Disappointed? You thought it was you, didn't you?
Zoe Benson: Well, I knew it wasn't you, because when Fiona cut your throat, you died.
Nan: It could be any one of us.
Madison Montgomery: Not really. It's pretty obvious.
Nan: And what does that mean?
Cordelia Foxx: Being the Supreme isn't something to wish for. It's not a gift. It's a burden. How many of these women had happy lives? They had power, but with it came the responsibility of the coven. They all bowed under the weight, except my mother... who ran from it.
Misty Day: Can I say something? I don't want to be the Supreme.
Cordelia Foxx: Nobody gets to choose. When Fiona dies, whoever it is... will be.

Zoe Benson: This is so incredibly stressful and weird. You don't feel anything?
Misty Day: My stomach feels like a storm's about to hit, but it's probably just my nerves. I'm not exactly what you call a natural born leader.
Myrtle Snow: Neither was King George, but one rises to the occasion.
Cordelia Foxx: Your feet should be getting warmer.
Myrtle Snow: I'm told it starts as a tingle in the cooch.
Fiona Goode: For me, it was a classic migraine.


"American Horror Story: Fearful Pranks Ensue (#3.4)" (2013)
Zoe Benson: You're being morbid. Madison's not dead.
Nan: Then why can't I hear her?
Queenie: Maybe she found a way to keep you out of her head. I know I've been trying.
Nan: No. She passed.

Zoe Benson: Kyle, no!
Kyle Spencer: Kyle? No Kyle.


"American Horror Story: Head (#3.9)" (2013)
Zoe Benson: You can't smoke in here, Madison.
Madison Montgomery: Why don't you go tell someone? Ugh, sick people really gross me out.


"American Horror Story: The Dead (#3.7)" (2013)
Madison Montgomery: What have you been up to?
Zoe Benson: Nothing. Do you mind? I need to get dressed.
Madison Montgomery: No, I don't mind... but you do.
Zoe Benson: What are we talking about?
Madison Montgomery: Come on, Zoe. What you walked in on before.
Zoe Benson: It's none of my business.
Madison Montgomery: You brought the dude back from the dead. You must like him a little.
Zoe Benson: We brought you back too.
Madison Montgomery: Starting to wish you hadn't?
Zoe Benson: Look, it's not like we can be together anyways.
Madison Montgomery: Why not? It's going to be different with Kyle. He already died once. It's going to take more then that "thing" between your legs to kill him.
Zoe Benson: Don't be disgusting.


"American Horror Story: Burn, Witch. Burn! (#3.5)" (2013)
Zoe Benson: Be in your nature.
