Episode Quotes
Joe: Death… death is necessary. It is not good. It is not evil. It is only inevitable.

Mark: Why do you have to get Joe Carroll? I don't want to lose anyone else. I don't want you lose you, Mother.
Lily: My love, you're so sensitive, but I really must insist that you man up. This whiny-child routine has lost its appeal.

Max: So answer the question again. How are you?
Mike: I told you, it sucks.
Max: This coffee sucks. Give me a little more.

Joe: Oh, this is splendid. I've missed you, Ryan.
Ryan: I've missed you too, buddy.
Joe: Oh, please don't deflect with humor. I know you've missed me, too.

Ryan: Are you sending a message to God that you're coming? Because I don't think that's where you're headed.

Joe: Welcome to the family.
Preston Tanner: Go to hell.
Joe: One thing at a time, eh?

Joe: Well, I should be off. I feel like we should hug or something.
Ryan: I'm good.
