Emily Thorne: When I was a little my understanding of revenge was as simple as the Sunday school proverbs it hid behind. Neat little morality slogans, like 'Do unto others' and 'Two wrongs don't make a right.' But two wrongs can never make a right because two wrongs can never equal each other. For the truly wronged real satisfaction can only be found in one of two places absolute forgiveness or mortal vindication. This is not a story about forgiveness."
Victoria Grayson: Don't let them see your weakness. That's the first thing they'll use against you.
Lydia Davis: You must come from a family of polar bears. Because that water is ice cold.
Emily Thorne: Only at first, then you can't feel anything.
Lydia Davis: Sounds like my marriage.
Emily Thorne: For the truly wronged, real satisfaction can only be found in one of two places: absolute forgiveness, or mortal vindication. This is not a story about forgiveness.

David Clarke: I am not the man they say I am and I did not do the things they say I did.
David Clarke: All I ask is that you promise to do the one thing that's been so hard for me to do. Forgive.

Charlotte Grayson: [to Mom, showing off her string bikini] Do you think I'm tan enough for my first day on the beach, or do I need another spray?
Victoria Grayson: What you need is another bathing suit.
Charlotte Grayson: Compared to what the rest of my friends are wearing, this is practically a burka.
Victoria Grayson: Unlike the rest of your friends, it is important to me that you don't end up on page six at one of Diddy's hot tub parties.
