Episode Quotes
Tess: Jennifer's boyfriend used to say "Robert" in his sleep... and now he sleeps with Robert!

Henry: Why would he go all the way back to the warehouse?
Ian: Because he wants to get caught. That's what killers do. You know that -- you're a killer.

Ian: Good God, Henry! If you'd ever been in the army, your own men woulda held you down and dry-shaved you!

Ian: I thought we ordered chicken wings.
Maddie: Wings are for when you're drunk. Soup is for when you're sick.
Jake: That's what my mom used to say. Boy, she loved her wings!

Maddie: Didn't your mother ever comfort you when you were sick?
Henry: Yeah, of course. She was very loving. She used to sing to me over the intercom.

Henry: I'm going to go and read these pages in a more hygienic setting... like the bathroom of a Greyhound Bus.

Audrey: While other publishers are lunching with Mailer an Updike, I'll be debating whether a toaster would actually say, "I've got bread in my head."

Phyllis: So how about that check?
Audrey: Yes, why cloud the moment with warmth and civility?

Ian: You hugged the world's greatest children's author to death!
Henry: I didn't kill anybody.
Ian: You didn't use a gun or knife but surely, sir, you took his life.

Ian: If you hadn't let him get so near ya, he wouldn't have died from your bacteria.
