Season 1


Pilot [1.1]

Ruth: Fuck.
Debbie: Don't swear in front of Randy.
Ruth: I'm sorry, I'm sorry.
Debbie: I'm kidding. Of course you can swear in front of him. He's a fucking baby.

Ruth: It just happened.
Debbie: Haven't you learned anything from that sad fucking scene study class? Things don't just happen. People make choices. They want things, and then they go for them.

Slouch. Submit. [1.2]

Sam: Wolf lady, what's your story?
Sheila: Sheila.
Sam: Sheila.
Sheila: And I have a very acute sense of smell.
Sam: Yeah? What cologne am I wearing?
Sheila: Drakkar Noir.
Sam: Trick question. Not wearing cologne. But I do spray that on my clothes if I forget to do laundry, so points for that.

Melrose: Who doesn't trust a man with a mustache full of coke?

Sam: So you're gonna leave him?
Debbie: Why, you wanna have sex with him, too? I have no idea what I'm going to do.
Sam: My wife cheated on me with my Steadicam operator. Not my best friend, but technically I was paying him to fuck my wife. So the next day I walked out. I quit the marriage. I quit the movie. I even left my dog. Got on a plane for Vegas. Two weeks later, I woke up, felt a lot better about myself.
Debbie: Thank you, that's great advice.

Ruth: So, I'm fired?
Sam: No! Are you an idiot? You're chum. You're blood in the water. Debbie's the hero and you're the villain. Everybody's gonna hate you!
Ruth: [near tears] I don't want everyone to hate me!
Sam: Oh, Christ. The crying, the caring, the desperation. That's what makes you unbearable. Look, I don't like you, Strindberg, take that in. Hold on to it. Try not giving a fuck. There's a lot of power in that. And relax: the devil gets all the best lines.

Season 2


Perverts Are People, Too [2.5]

Debbie: How could you be so fucking stupid?
Ruth: What are you talking about?
Debbie: You're in the hotel room of the head of the network. He comes on to you and you run away?
Ruth: Was I supposed to fuck him?
Debbie: No, you're supposed to make him think that you might fuck him. Or that you desperately want to fuck him, if only you didn't have a fiancé or your period or an extra set of teeth where your vagina should be!
Ruth: I'm not that kind of person!
Debbie: What, an actress? I mean, that is how this business works, Ruth. Men try shit. You have to pretend to like it until you don't have to any more.
Ruth: It shouldn't be that way!
Debbie: No, it shouldn't, and women should get to direct and not be washed up by the time they're 30! And I should have gotten to eat a piece of my own wedding cake without worrying about how many minutes of Jane fucking Fonda it was gonna take to work it off, but that is the way it is. You don't make it better by flouncing out like some fucking Victorian schoolmarm every time a sleazeball puts his hand on your knee. You're taking 20 other people down with you.
Ruth: So just let them do whatever they want? Not exactly a guiding feminist principle.
Debbie: Feminism has principles. Life has compromises. Congratulations, Gloria Steinem. The one time you keep your legs shut, we all get fucked.

Every Potato Has a Receipt [2.10]

Sam: You let somebody in, you know? And then you make room. Then they go and yet... the room is still there.
