    • Glynis: So why don't you do everyone a favor and take the giant stick out of your butt! Grace: You are way more intense than I ever knew.

    • Johnny Broadway God: Nothing of value comes without a little struggle. Some of the most beautiful flowers in the world only grow after a forest fire. Literally out of the ashes, they blanket the ground with color. Joan: Yeah, but you could make that happen without the fire. People would like you more. Johnny Broadway God: They'd just find something else to blame me for.
