Hart Of Dixie: Always On My Mind

Zoe is trying hard to stay away from Wade, but when Rose enlists her help in throwing the first BlueBellapalooza, she is forced to ask Wade to convince his old band mate to be the musical act on short notice. Wade convinces George to start playing the field and agrees to be his wingman, but when Wade stands him up, he decides to follow the seemingly questionable advice solo. Meanwhile, Brick tries to trick Lemon into working for him, but she is determined to keep her waitressing job, that is until one of her customers ends up needing medical attention.

Episode Quotes
Rose: Zoe, is that you?
Zoe: Hey Rose, what are you doing up so early? Sleep in, why don't 'cha! You're a teenager.
Rose: Where are your pants?
Zoe: Oh, nowhere. I was, uhh, running. Pantless. In heels. It's a new thing, people are doing it. I'm a doctor, have to keep up.

Zoe: I'm bad. Bad, bad, bad.
Lavon: You having sex with Wade isn't bad.
Wade: Not bad, for her it's fricken awesome.
Zoe: Hah, hardly. And it doesn't even matter because...never again.
Wade: oops, aren't you supposed to say that after we do it?
Zoe: No more, Wade. Lavon, tell him.
Lavon: Me? No, no I'm way out of this, this is for y'all.
Zoe: Oh, come on, you're the landlord. You can make a rule: No sex between tenants.
Lavon: Yeah I could make one "no coming in my kitchen without knocking" too, but I doubt anyone would listen.

Wade: You try and quit one your own and I bet you 50 dollars we have sex in the next 48 hours.
Zoe: 50 dollars? Why don't we made it 100?
Wade: Shake on it.
Zoe: Two days without you is easy. I have gone way longer than that without sex, I have gone years!
Lavon: ...yeah, that may be part of the problem.

Rose: Oh... That's where your pants went.
Lavon: Surely you can ask him a question without falling into bed.

Wally: I was going to do this tomorrow, but this didn't work out.
Lemon: What?
Wally: ...yeah.
Lemon: You're firing me?
Wally: ...yeah.
Lemon: Wally, look at me.
Wally: No.
Lemon: Wally. Look. At. Me. You cannot fire me tonight. My father is coming here on a date and I have to show him that I'm good at this.
Wally: But you're not. I'm sorry Lemon, this just isn't your line of work.
Lemon: I'll pay you not to.
Wally: What?
Lemon: 50 dollars to let me work tonight. 75! Although, I'll have to work tomorrow to make up for it...
Wally: But, by that math, you could be working here forever...
Lemon: Oh Wally, thank you but, I do have other plans in life.

Zoe: Why is George calling you? What is "C7"?
Wade: I'm coaching him on, uhh, Battleship. Hopefully this time he sinks those pesky submarines.
