Episode Quotes
Jessica: This is my own outfit. We're supposed to be provided with uniforms eventually.
Anthony: Eventually. So, can we change the hotel from The Curve to The Eventually?
Jessica: Yeah.
Anthony: 'Cause it seems like everything's gonna be eventually.

Anthony: What the hell is this? This is left over from World War II. They're torpedoes--we put them in the lobby. So we have grandma's china closet with torpedo.

Anthony: I always say the lobby is the face of the hotel. But like a lot of faces in Palm Springs, it has had one too many bad procedures.

Anthony: It's not enough we have stains, we have holes, and we have terrible linens. We have caterpillars eating us at night. That is a first.

Anthony: Wouldn't be a day if I didn't break something.

Anthony: So now I have two owners that are more worried about their hair gel than their landscaping.

Anthony: What do you think of the sign, Joaquin?
Joaquin: It's great, as long as you don't come around and break it.
