    • Danny: I appreciate you being the demon seed, and taking the heat off me, but I have a reputation to uphold.

    • Derek: It's about your baby. Did you ever consider keeping him? Like when you held him? Was it hard to let him go?
      Liberty: Get out!
      Derek: I'm sorry. I'm adopted. It's just something I always wondered.
      Liberty: Get out! I mean it! I don't care if you were adopted, dropped by a stork, or abducted by aliens! Get out!!
