Hart Of Dixie: I Fall To Pieces

After George confesses his feelings to Zoe, she finds herself having to make a tough decision between George and Wade, leaving the two guys at odds on how to handle the situation. In search of some much needed girl advice, Zoe makes a new fast friend in former BlueBell resident Ruby Jeffries, who no one is excited to see. Lemon decides it's time to get her own apartment and a job, but it's tougher than she thought. Continuing to forge ahead with her new life, Lemon proceeds to return the wedding presents, but a sudden detour to Zoe's while holding a cake knife creates a stir with the townspeople.

Episode Quotes
Zoe: Lavon, Lavon, Lavon, Lavon, LAVON!
Lavon: (waking up) Well, I can't say I'm surprised to see you. I know, I heard.
Zoe: Oh god, oh no. I can explain.
Lavon: What is there to explain? George cancelled his wedding, presumably for you.
Zoe: Oh, George. Yeah, George, he did.
Lavon: So why don't you look happier?
Zoe: Okay I am just going to tell you, because I have to tell someone. Don't judge.
Lavon: Okay...
Zoe: Last night, while George was calling off his wedding, I was kind of having sex with Wade.
Lavon: Wade? (laughing) And how'd that work out for you?
Zoe: Let's just say I finally understand what R. Kelly's been singing about all these years.

Zoe: George, what are you doing here?
George: Well, I was coming by to thank Lavon for all his help last night, but it's good to see you as well Ms. Hart. Actually now that I think about it, I think Lavon can wait just a second.
Zoe: I know, I'm...I'm still just processing it all.
George: What is there to process? I called off my wedding for you. That is what they call a grand romantic gesture.
Zoe: It was just all so sudden.
George: That's what makes it grand.
Zoe: But, George, you have to admit it's a little crazy. You just broke up with Lemon yesterday.
George: All I know is I chose you, and I want you, and I know you feel the same --
(Wade opens the door)
Wade: Well, fancy meeting you two here. Tucker, I thought you'd be on your honey moon by now.
George: See, if you wouldn't have flaked last night you would know that I called off the wedding.
Wade: Right...sorry I missed that, I uhh, hand my hands full.

Zoe: Picture me with both guys... Who do I look happier with?
Lavon: You really need to get a girlfriend.

Wade: Here are your fries. You know, you should probably cut back on this stuff Doc. You don't want to be weighed down when the George scandal breaks and the whole town is chasing after you with pitchforks.
Zoe: Wade, stop.
Wade: Stop what?
Zoe: All of it. The glibness, the sarcasm. Anything "Wade-like", just stop.

Lemon: (to Zoe) Thank you for saving my life. I mean, I still hate you, and I will hate you until your dying day. But, listen, if you want to date George Tucker then you don't have to hide it from me. I mean, don't consider this a blessing, it's just that I have been through the worst public humiliation twice in two days and there is nothing that you, or George, or anyone can do that will break me.
