  • Quotes (6)

    • Billie: I used to be like you. Until I was 25. When out of the blue my cleaning lady shows up as I'm brushing my teeth. except she's got no toilet brush and rubber gloves, she's naked and bloody. Her husband murdered her with an ice pick.
      Constance: It's hard to keep good help.
      Billie: You think I wanted a bloody Mexican ghost in my bathroom? All I wanted was to improve my tennis game and unseat Charlotte Whitney as president of my book club. I was chosen. And when you're chosen, you either get with the program or you go crazy.

    • Ben: We need the money.
      Vivien: I'm finding it really hard to look at your face. 'Cause I really, really, really want to bash it in. I find you disgusting... and disappointing as a man. and we're gonna end this marriage and we're gonna sell this house and I'll let you be a father to our kids because I happen to think that you're a good one. But I'm not going to be your friend. I will merely tolerate you.

    • Leah: The Devil is real. And he's not a little red man with horns and a tail. He can be beautiful. Because he's a fallen angel, and he used to be God's favorite. Have you read the Book of Revelation?
      Violet: No.
      Leah: In Heaven, there's this woman in labor howling in pain. And there's a red dragon with seven heads waiting so he can eat her babies. But the Archangel Michael, he hurls the dragon down to earth. From that moment on, the red dragon hates the woman, and declares war on her and all of her children. That's us.

    • Violet: Why are you bullshitting me?!?
      Teacher: If the bullet had been an inch to the right, it would've missed my spine and I would have walked out of here. Might have even been able to stop him. An inch higher, it would have killed me. Sometimes shit just happens.
      Violet: Good people don't just have a bad day and start shooting people.
      Teacher: Maybe he wasn't a good person.

    • Billie: I see it all the time. The dead can hold a grudge better than most Scorpios.
