Eight years ago my best friend made me a birthday cake. That night when she and I sat over my candle my birthday wish was plain and simple. I just wanted to be loved. Little did I know that every step that I would take since then would be one step further away from making that wish come true.

Elsa

Elsa: You know my motto: always leave them wanting more.

[to Dandy] That's where you think freaks belong, parlors, behind glass, a human car crash to stare at and remind you how lucky you are? Well maybe that's true. Maybe that's all we are, but let me tell you this, pretty boy. You may look like a motion picture dreamboat, but you are the biggest freak of them all.

Desiree

Do bear in mind, Dot. I can get very nasty if my manhood is compromised. A stallion demands a certain respect from all his mares.

Dandy

[to Dandy] You think you're special? Your mum probably told you all your life. Well I've got news for you. I've heard you sing and you're not special. You're rubbish. Even worse, you're boring. We don't trade in boring, we're freaks. And you'll never be one of us.

Paul

Elsa: But where will I go?
Bette: Anywhere but here.
Elsa: You would save me?
Dot: Now we're even.

Listen to your ma. You got a winning smile and a winsome way. You got star quality, Jimmy. Now you get your ass out there and show 'em why your ma is so proud of you.

Ethel

Paul: What do we do now?
Desiree: Steal her jewelry. And bury the bitch.

Mother always told me, never argue with a woman when she's angry.

Dandy

Chinese water torture. Which for me is five minutes with Dell.

Paul

[to Dell] Imagine that. Being a freak for being normal.

Jimmy

[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

American Horror Story Quotes

Nein. Nein. No matinees. No. People don't come to see freaks in the heat of day, they come in the evening when the darkness moves in and speaks of mystery and the unknown. When logic loosens it's vice grip and the imagination comes out to play. Night allows the stars to shine and we come alive. No. Daytime is for kiddie shows, clouds and cupie dolls. If that's what you're used to, but you're in a real freak show now. MY freak show!

Else

Billie: Her husband murdered her with an ice pick.
Constance: It's hard to keep good help.
