  • Quotes

    • Thor: Oh, my God!
      Jackie: Not now, Thor.
      Thor: You are gonna die.
      Jackie: Yes, one day for sure. Eventually, yes.

    • Jackie: We will get to you when we get to you. And we will get to you. In the meantime, people are trying to die in here. Have a seat.

    • Mrs. Akalitus: Have you ever stolen anything?
      Jackie: Yes, many times.
      Mrs. Akalitus: Good. Chapel, half hour. Bring Thor.

    • Jackie: Are you mad at me?
      Thor: This morning by the elevators... totally dismissive. You talked to me like I... like I was Zoey.
      Jackie: Oh, Jesus.
      Thor: And the hits keep coming.

    • Dr. O'Hara: Right, one filled out prescription. So, no excuses. Come and see me in a year when it runs out.
      Lou: I don't know what to say.
      Dr. O'Hara: Say nothing, I just broke the law.

    • Jackie: A year's worth of meds?
      Dr. O'Hara: I took a leaf out of your book. Sue me.
      Jackie: Imitation is the sincerest form...
      Dr. O'Hara: And I can't very well flatter your wardrobe.
      Jackie: I like my scrubs.
      Dr. O'Hara: Nope, sorry, can't do it.

    • Jackie: My point is it was personal and I just figured you didn't wanna discuss it in this little shop of horrors.
      Thor: Are you trying to placate me with a musical theater reference?
      Jackie: I am.
      Thor: It's working.

    • Mrs. Akalitus: You were never here. But since you are, strap Mary to the dolly and follow me.

    • Mrs. Akalitus: The diocese is deconsecrating this chapel.
      Jackie: What does that mean.
      Mrs. Akalitus: They're taking my statues.

    • Mrs. Akalitus: Of all the statues in here, this is the one that matters the most to me. She's tall. She's got a lot on her mind. And I relate. Also, she's not judgmental. That's something I'm working on. It's irrational, but that's the nature of faith. We're stealing her. Sorry to make you an accessory.
      Jackie: Happy to be one.

    • Eddie: What's so great about pilots? I mean unless you work for NASA, you're just a bus driver in the sky.

    • Mrs. Scheinhorn: Honey, your mother and I love each other very much. We just can't bear to be in the same room together anymore.
