Episode Quotes
Gil: You want the job because you're worried about Lindsay?
Catherine: That's part of it, but ...
Gil: The position calls for leadership, Catherine. You have to inspire others, solve problems, which means you have to leave your own problems at home.
Catherine: I want the job because I can do it. I'm qualified, I'm motivated and I'm ready, Gil. You know that I am.
Gil: I do. Which is why I already sent in your A.P. I gave you 100%. I even put in a good word with the Director. The rest is up to you. And ... I hope you get it.
(Gil puts his glasses back on. Catherine's touched.)
Catherine: Thank you.
(Catherine stands up and walks out of the office.)
(Gil sighs as he watches her go.)

Episode References
Catherine: I know that you got the memo, I'm not sure that you read it. Eckley is being promoted to Assistant Director. They are taking applications for his supervisor spot on days. I want it.

Catherine is referring to Gil's tendency to ignore memos and emails. This is referenced in many other episodes including "Ellie" and, more recently, "I Like to Watch".

Catherine: I have a daughter who is so starved for my attention, she is thumbing rides to Fremont Street to see her grandfather. The last person I want her around. I mean, not that it's much better with my mother, who sees Lindsay much more often than I do.

Catherine is referring to Lindsey's hitchiking in "Harvest". She also is making references to her mother's character (see "Slaves of Las Vegas" and "Weeping Willows") and the fact that she is not the type of person she wants raising her daughter.
