    • Tanya: (referring to Jemma) She has a bruised heart, at least that what she said in the interview. Men have let her down. Ray: Women have let me down. Tanya: But we're not talking about you, you're not paying!

    • Ray: (voice-over) So when the kids brought up the car thing, I don't know, maybe it was the divorce, or maybe I was just a jackass. I felt bold. The twins were turning sixteen. (out loud, to Darby and Damon) You know, just cause Ronnie can't buy you a car doesn't mean I can't.

    • Jessica: We're still rich, we're just not as rich. The point is, we don't feel as rich, not super rich like before. Darby: But you still have some money... Ronnie: We lost a lot of money in the stock market. Times are tough, now we just happened to land in the danger zone. Jessica: Okay, we don't have to call it the danger zone, it's a temporary setback. Besides, all that money was on paper anyway. Damon: So it's all in your mind? Ronnie: I wish. Jessica: Which brings us to the car...

    • Tanya: (referring to Jemma) Next time, make her feel like it's more about her mind, not just her body. Ray: She wants to book me again? Tanya: Yeah, she wants a rewrite. She'll pay for it. Ray: You mean a do-over?

    • Jemma: Why is it so hard for you to say 'I love you'? Ray: Why do you want me to say it so bad? Look, I just can't help but wonder why you'd want to ruin such a perfectly beautiful moment on a perfectly beautiful beach with all this f***ed up, artificial sh**. I mean, what am I, a goddamn dancing monkey here?
