[to Pepper] You and I have known each other a very long time. And I understand you even without words. I know all you ever wanted was a family. So, you just remember, no matter how far away I am, I will always be your family.

Elsa

Desiree: I wasn't born on a farm, but I know bullsh*t when I smell it, and that's a whole lot of bullsh*t.
Maggie: Go to Hell, triple tits.

We all fear that we will end up alone, that love will be pulled from us.

Elsa

Jimmy Darling, I have loved you since the first moment I set eyes on you. You were warm. You were kind, and you looked at me. You didn't flinch. Not even a bit. And in that moment, I felt like I could face anything with you by my side. You are the only man for me. 'Cause you're like us. Different, but special. Let me take your pain away. Replace it with love.

Dot

Dell: I swear to Christ, Ethel, I don't know how you and the others manage it.
Ethel: We manage it because we have to. We wear our shame on the outside. There's no hiding it. It's just who we are. But you? You carry your shame on the inside. You keep it trapped in there. It eats away at you, feeding on you like a living thing 'til there's nothing left but the rot.

Bette: I have the same longings as you. Same dreams of a normal life.
Dot: You could never survive without me.
Bette: I know.

Dot: I am so tired of this life of ours, Bette. This infinite, intolerable arranged marriage. Aren't you tired of it? And I don't want you dead. I don't. I just never dreamed it might be possible for one of us to live a normal life.
Bette: Mother refused to buy us lace-up shoes cause she insisted we'd never be able to tie them. But we spent hours working it out until we finally cracked it. Same with needlepoint. There was nothing we could not work through when we put our heads together. No one can understand our burden. You and I have endured a life that would have driven most people mad, but to me, it's been a gift, really. We've been given the opportunity to really love another person. To love them as you love yourself. And love is about sacrifice. It's answering the question how much would you give for the health and happiness of the one you love.

Dandy: I cannot begin to tell you how it felt. The kind of control over their lives. Their trust, their fear, their pain, their confusion. I believe I am living my destiny. I'm finally happy, Regina.
Regina: Well, good for you. They're not.

Your father wasn't the love of my life. You were. From the second you came out and looked at me with that furrowed brow, I loved all of you, Dandy.

Gloria

[to Jimmy] You see, that's how it works. Your mother lives because the show will always go on.

Elsa

Elsa: I had to kill her. I had to protect my precious angels.
Stanley: Horseshit. You were protecting yourself.

It's all over, Elsa, for all of us. No one's innocent anymore.
