Episode Quotes
Pepper: But they laugh at you, Dr. Arden, they make jokes. Here's a good one. Knock knock. Who's there? Arden. Arden who? Arden you the quack who'd make a better duck.

Thredson: Because the only thing that's keeping you alive right now. As long as he's curling inside your womb, you're safe.
Lana: Then what happens? You murder me?
Thredson: No. I'll have to keep you around to breast-feed that baby for at least the first year. The health benefits are myriad.
