Episode Quotes
Wade: I told you you should fix that hole in your screen.
Zoe: Yeah, and you told me that you would fix it.
Wade: Maybe. But you should be nicer to me. 'Cause when all those nice churchgoing people get whooshed up to Heaven in the Rapture, gonna be just me and you left to repopulate the Earth.

Zoe: So you don't want me to come to church.
Rev. Mayfair: No, of course we want you to come to church!
Zoe: You're just not trying to get me to come to church?
Beverly Mayfair: You're welcome to come to church.
Zoe: If I take this bunt cake, it's not an implied contract that I will come to church?
Rev. Mayfair: Umm, we'll just leave the cake right here on the porch and you can decide.

Lavon: Hi, I'm Lavon Hayes, and I'm itch-free...where it counts.
Zoe: ...Hi, I'm Zoe Hart and I'm freaked out at the moment.

Zoe: I'm just going to come right out and say it. You've tested positive for syphilis. But the good news is it's easily cured. Just a round of antibiotics and you're all set.
Rev. Mayfair: I'm sorry, I don't understand. Is there some other kind of syphilis other than the one...
Beverly Mayfair: Did you possibly mean psoriasis? His skin is unusually dry.
Zoe: No, I meant syphilis.

Lavon: Maybe 99 out of 100 people will disappoint you, but I don’t know, I think you find the magic of the world in the margin of error.
