Episode Quotes
George: I can't stop thinking about last night. It was possibly the best night of my life.
Zoe: Me too.
George: But we kind of got a little swept away, you know?
Zoe: I know, we did...we so did.
George: Yeah, I'm just coming out of a 15 year relationship, so I'm thinking jumping right into another one might not be fair for anyone.
Zoe: Right and, umm, and you know what they say. It's better to be fair then not fair. I think they say that...
George: Yeah, and this is going to sound real cliché, but maybe if it's okay with you for now we just stay friends? Just...
Zoe: Friends...absolutely...

Zoe: How on earth did you fall out of a tree?
Lavon: We were training for the Bluebell Battle.
Wade: Yeah, and there's $5,000 at stake. And we got to be ready to do anything. Bull riding, building plantations out of macaroni, eating bugs! So what's the verdict, he going to be okay?
Zoe: (raises eyebrows)
Wade: What, you're still ignoring me? Ask her if you're going to be okay for the race.
Lavon: This is ridiculous. Zoe, can I be in the race?
Zoe: Nope.
Lavon: Please?
Zoe: No.

Tansy: What are you looking for in a team mate?
Wade: Well, my assets are: A) I know this town like the back of my hand, B) Mechanical, C) I'm wily, D) I can hold my breath for three minutes, you know that? But I'm not traditionally book smart, especially when those books have something to do with math. And ideally I'd find a partner that has good fine motor skills, because I can barely thread a needle.
Tansy: You need Zoe Hart. She's a surgeon, she can fit in small places. You just need to make her take off those heels.
Wade: Zoe Hart would never be my partner.
Tansy: Why? You're not still hung up on her are you?
Wade: No! No, it's not that. Uhh, she overhead me say some unkind, but true, things about her recently and she's pissed at me.
Tansy: Well I can think of 5,000 reasons this is a good time to apologize.

Rose: Does the wall have a murmur?
Zoe: I was just listening to a crazy termite hatch a crazy plan that will not work.
