American Housewife - 
1. Katie: "I know it's hard to believe, but before I had kids my brain used to work."

Took me some time to get my sea legs. Maybe that's what the Pastor needs. Don't count him out just yet." Constance: "You're a good friend Rudy."
3. Rio: "I think that you do move on from things quickly. And I don't actually think that's necessarily bad. I really believe that... like there's some people who know a lot about one thing. And you know, you know... a little bit about a lot of different things, you know what I'm saying? Which just makes you a renaissance man, frankly. Mike when it matters I know that you won't quit. Because I know you'll never give up on me." (Folie-lex)

4. Guard: She’s in Dorm C, this way.” Clinton: “Dorms? The last dorm I was in had beds.”

That’s why I waited so long to show Jessica.” Malcolm: “Don’t you want the answer?” Eve: “Not if it destroys you. I’ve seen what your repressed memories, what your nightmares can do.” Malcolm: “Eve, we can’t hide from this; we have to face it head on.” Eve: “We can’t. I have real feelings for you Malcolm and no relationship can withstand this...search for the truth. We should just stop looking. It’s the only way for us to move on.” Malcolm: “Life doesn’t work like that. We can’t keep secrets in locked bags or girls in basements and not expect them to come back to haunt us.

Cause if we get pushed, we’re all capable of doing things and Ansel really needs you and I need you and come on. You need us, so if you’re going today, then I’m coming with you. [Dex starts snickering.] What the hell is so funny?” Dex: “Nothing. It was a great dad speech. You did well.”
2. Dex: “I thought I’d feel vindicated or at peace or something. For 12 years, this whole thing defined me and now I don’t know who I am.” SueLynn: “Well, when the hole’s big enough, there’s no filling it. It just becomes a part of you.” Dex: “So what now?” Sue Lynn: “We go on.”
3. Grey: “What? No one’s ever gone to jail for a crime they didn’t commit. I got to do something.” Dad: “But not something that makes you an accessory to a crime. Then she’s looking over her shoulder for the rest of her life and you go back to prison.” Grey: “Yeah but what about..you know, the thing you said about protecting your family.” Dad: “Yeah, and sometimes that means protecting them from themselves.”
