Episode Quotes
Narrator: The firm of Cod & Cod dedicated itself to the pursuit of truth at all costs… a pursuit young Emerson found “badass.”

Olive: Know what you want?
Calista: Yeah. Nothing’, with a size of “buzz off.”

Veronica: I want “Yustice” at any price.
Calista:: That’s our kind of yustice. We’ll be in touch.

Barb: Fake that, bitches!

Olive: It’s like we’re trapped in a sachet in a panty drawer of a dead shut-in, who was shut in her bedroom by her cat so that it would have to smell the scene of Freesia. Can’t you smell it?
Chuck: Yeah. That would be my Freesia hair detangler that you said smells amazing yesterday.
Olive: Wish I hadn’t now.
Chuck: Wish I hadn’t told you those capris make you look taller.
Olive: Liar!
Chuck: No, I’m a truth-ar, because I came clean unprompted, while you only admitted to lying because you got caught.
Olive: Here comes the center of the universe, pulling us all into her gravitational orbit of blame.
Chuck: Oh, well, FYI, um, there is no center of the universe because our universe is forever expanding.
Olive: Like your neediness. “Wah, respect my feelings. Wah, don’t fence me in. Wah, don’t treat me like I’m dead.” Well, if you’re so dead, how can you be needy? Oh right, you’re selfish!

Chuck: But you promised me comforting. You’re my king-sized duvet of goose-down goodness.
Ned: I know. Selfishly, I want to duvet you right this second.
