American Woman Season 1 Episode 10: "Obstacles and Assets" Quotes
Diana: Mr. Bishop!
Mr. Bishop: Yes?
Diana: You know, I could fire Jeff if you want. [Mr. Bishop laughs]
Steve: I have always been in awe of what an incredible mother you are.
Bonnie: If I was so great, why did you cheat on me?
Steve: Because I'm an idiot.
Bonnie: Finally something we can agree on.
Steve: So, what's wrong with you? People don't usually end up on the bathroom floor until after they've been drinking?
Bonnie: I got fired.
Steve: Oh, I'm so sorry.
Bonnie: It gets worse. I tried to make Jessica play a prostitute today. I'm a terrible mother! [Steve laughs] I'm glad you find it amusing!
Mr. Bishop: You have no idea how hard it is to be a man these days.
Diana: How hard it is to be a man. Are you serious? Try being a woman. Try working twice as hard for half the recognition and a quarter of the pay. Or see how it feels to be called a bitch for speaking up for what you believe in. Or being told that because you have a career, you're never going to have a family. [packs up to leave]
Mr. Bishop: Wait, what is it? Where are you going?
Diana: You promoted Jeff, so you can clean up his mistakes.
Mr. Bishop: I thought we were having a moment.
Diana: Yes, we were. It's called compassion. It's when one person in nice to another person. Maybe you have trouble seeing that because I'm a woman.
Mr. Bishop: I'm sorry, but you are a woman, and I'm a man.
Diana: Yes, and?
Mr. Bishop: It's confusing. Do you want to be treated as our equals or do you want us to hold open the doors for you? Which one?
Diana: How about both? Is that so impossible?
Mr. Bishop: So how are we supposed to know what you want at any goddamned moment?
Bonnie: What are you casting for right now?
Kathleen: It's for a teen hooker on Police Woman.
Bonnie: She can play that!
Jessica: Mom! You're walking too quick. I can't keep up!
Bonnie: That's why I'm pulling you.
Bonnie: Please! I really need this job.
Mister: And brides need white wedding dresses, and thanks to you, ours went elsewhere to get hers.
Bonnie: You get to eat mushrooms all day and paint in your underwear!
Adam: That's not fair.
Bonnie: A lot of things aren't fair.
