      • Lauren: You're not seriously still trying to get me to change Jessie's hospital records.
        Ella: Wow, Lauren, I'm confused. You refuse to the screw the system just a little bit, but you have no problem at all screwing--
        Lauren: Hey! Seriously stop.

      • Violet: (after Marcello takes credit for Auggie's recipe) Did that just really happen? That's like cooking plagiarism. You can't let him get away with that.
        Auggie: I don't have a choice. It's my job to make Marcello look good. There's a chain of command in the kitchen, and if I ever want to get promoted, I've gotta obey it.
        Violet: Well from here, it looks like your chain is getting yanked.

      • Detective Rodriguez: Just tell me you and Ella were never together the night of the murder.
        David: That'd be a lie.
        Detective Rodriguez: What else is a lie? You live like a rockstar without a single deposit from a trust fund or your old man. You don't cooperate with me, I'm gonna eventually find out how you can afford this life of leisure.
