Quotes

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.

Mia Mason: Are you here now because you got a good job?

Jack Cutting: You're reading too much into it.

Olivia Case: First, you're straight. Then, you're gay. Then, you're bi.

Caitlin Dowd: And now, I'm getting drunk.

Olivia Case: This is my baby, and you just don't seem like much of a role model.

Caitlin Dowd: How do you know so much about me? Did Alicia tell you that?

Olivia Case: Here's another thing. I hope you don't plan on having this kid call you "Mommy." This family's topping out at two mommies.

Caitlin Dowd: Listen, you have no genetic relation to this child and neither do I. The only one who does is Alicia, so maybe we should be letting her make some of the calls.

Olivia Case: You've got a lot to learn about lesbians.

Cilla Gray: I just wanted to say... and I wish someone had told me this the first time I got divorced... it's actually a very liberating experience. I'm sure there are parts of you that have gotten buried or lost in this marriage. You get all that back. Plus, the summer house.

Mia Mason: Liz, I know that you came here to show me that this is your territory now, but the fact that you had to make an appearance when you knew I'd be here, proves that it's not.

Liz Morin: Aww. You just can't handle that Jack's moved on.

Mia Mason: And you can't admit that you're the rebound girl. Enjoy the bounce.

Liz Morin: [holds up a scarf] Oh, this what you were looking for? Thanks for letting me borrow it. I got a lot of compliments on it.

Mia Mason: Don't you have any clothes of your own?

Liz Morin: I really don't wear much when I'm here.

Mia Mason: Could you not talk much when you're here? I don't even know how you can, without a teleprompter.

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.

Alicia Lawson: Olivia!

Caitlin Dowd: Olivia?

Alicia Lawson: My ex, the one I was trying to get pregnant with.

Olivia Case: You must be Caitlin. I didn't mean for this to be so awkward.

Caitlin Dowd: It wouldn't have been, if we'd known you were coming.

Olivia Case: Alicia told me about the appointment.

Alicia Lawson: I didn't think you wanted to be here.

Olivia Case: Why wouldn't I? It's my baby, too.

Dr. Jane: The baby looks healthy, in case anyone's wondering.

Mia Mason: Maybe this is the universe telling me things aren't over between me and Jack.

Caitlin Dowd: Please don't go by the universe. Every time I've done that, I end up in a strange apartment, hunting for my thong.

Caitlin Dowd: My girlfriend is pregnant. My girlfriend is pregnant. You say it.

Mia Mason: Your girlfriend is pregnant.

Caitlin Dowd: No. It still sounds crazy. I mean, what do I do? Do I stay with her? What does that make me, other mommy? Mommy Two?

Mia Mason: Bitch.

Caitlin Dowd: I think I prefer Mommy Two.

Davis Draper: Rafe has helped me see that you had just as much to do with this marriage failing as I did. I am not going to be the bad guy here.

Juliet Draper: Oh, really? What are you being now, the ingénue? You stole money from our mutual account.

Rafe Gropman: If it was mutual, he didn't steal.

Juliet Draper: [to Davis] You cheated on me!

Davis Draper: And you cheated on me.

Juliet Draper: Hardly.

Davis Draper: And you rubbed it in my face. At least I had the decency to try to keep my affair a secret.

Juliet Draper: Yes, the first word that springs to mind when I think of your affair with Cilla is "decency."
