Samantha Kingston: If I was going to live the same day over and over, I wanted it to mean something... and not just to me.
Samantha Kingston: How is it possible to change so much and not be able to change anything at all?
Jin: You don't want to rent there. Too stink, shifty landlord.
Peg: Well, then why do you rent there?
Jin: I conned the dingus into giving me a 50-year lease. I pay shit.
Peg: You do good business?
Jin: Most of our walk-ins are Buffalonian assholes looking for a rub and tug. I did not come to the promised land to fondle soft weiners. I came to get rich. (00:43:28)
Young Peg: Buffalo, New York. Epicenter of the rust belt. A city whose favorite meal is discarded chicken parts. A city hopelessly dedicated to a staple of disappointment.
Mom: Hey. Don't rag on my Bills.
Young Peg: A city whose appreciation of unhealthy lifestyles ultimately led to my father's death. (00:02:55)
Young Peg: I became a student of money. While other kids begged for allowances, I studied profit margins. While other kids were scrapbooking pictures of pretty ponies, I was compiling financial advice. I was grooming myself to be the next Warren Buffet. I had a plan; go to an Ivy League school, then to Wall Street, then get so rich, some little girl was gonna say she's grooming herself to be the next me. (00:05:35)
Peg: OK, um... I'm supposed to talk about what I learned in prison. Supposed to talk about what I learned in prison. I learned, I learned, I learned, don't go, right? Just stay away. Just stay away from there. Oh, I learned... there are better ways to erase debt than torching your boyfriend's office. (01:29:16)
Peg: Hi. Don't worry. I got this. I got this. I'm gonna fix this. I am...
Mom: They got me running an off-the-books business in a house full of cash, okay?
Peg: I know, but I...
Mom: I am effed. And we both know it.
Peg: No, no, no, because I can afford a great lawyer.
Mom: You don't have any money. They took all your money. And even if you did, I wouldn't want that money helping me.
Peg: Fine. I messed up, but what do you want me to say? Do you want me to say I'm sorry? Do you want me to say I'm sorry? I'm sorry. I'm sorry I had a dream. I'm so f-ing sorry I had a dream. (01:15:20)
Harper: Guys think that they like girls who like sports. What they actually like is a girl in a very tight sports jersey, serving them wings and getting the terminology wrong. Guys like girls who like guys who like sports.
Rose Hathaway: You should know by now, with us, weird doesn't begin to cover it.
Rose Hathaway: I hate mysteries. Honestly, I would prefer a good Strigoi attack at this point. At least we know what those homicidal bloodsuckers want.
Rose Hathaway: Why can't you be like a normal teenage girl and dream about hot naked guys on unicorns?
Lissa Dragomir: Does it have to be unicorns?
Rose Hathaway: Of course not. It could be jet skis, mechanical bulls, or... Why do you have a scary poster of an American ex-president?
Lissa Dragomir: Well, you told me I needed to blend more into Oregano society.
Rose Hathaway: We're in Oregon. You know you're completely hopeless as a human being, right?
Lissa Dragomir: I'm still adjusting.
