  • Quotes

    • Andy: Plenty of matzah to go around. This is what my people ate as we wandered the desert.. for fourty years. At least in the beginning. Then we switched to mana, which fell from the sky. Doesn't really happen anymore. I'm thinking it's either global warming, or God is dead. I haven't committed either way yet. So... thoughts?
      Mexican: Forty years?
      Andy: Moses wasn't half the coyote I am.

    • Shane: I don't see why I have to go to school and Silas doesn't?
      Nancy: You're our one chance at legitimacy.
      Shane: No, I'm not. I'm very corrupt. I'm a contractor.

    • Esteban: What are you afraid of?
      Nancy: Calm.
      Esteban: Before the storm?
      Nancy: Storm I can weather.
