Good Trouble Season 3 Episode 6: "Help" Quotes
Are you going to get me fired from this job too?Jamie [to Callie]
I served my time, but when I got out, no one would give me a job or a place to live.Client
Alice: I guess you were right.
Lindsay: About what?
Alice: Me falling back on my ethnicity. I opened this Pandora's Box for Asian stereotypes. I never should've done my mom.
Lindsay: I'm sorry. I shouldn't have said that. You have every right to do your interpretation of your mom. The problem is we don't control how people appropriate our humor. So, as a non-binary comic, as an Asian comic, we're doing jokes about how people don't understand our pronouns or how much our mom hates how loud our dad chews but, uh, to some people it's laughing at the queer freak or the Chinese lady who talks funny.
Alice: So what do we do?
Lindsay: We show them that what makes us funny isn't just what makes us different.
Mariana: I love you.
Evan: You love me.
Mariana: For wanting to help me.
Mariana: But I don't want your help.

Malika: I have all of this compassion for these women, but I never had compassion for my own mother. I had this dream that she was being shackled and taken away to Linwood instead of me.
Boss: Maybe you realized your mother is a victim of the system.
Malika: If the system actually worked, if she was able to get the help that she needed, maybe our lives would've been different. And maybe she would still be here today. I thought I could heal if I made other people's lives better than the one I had.
Boss: This work can be very healing, but only if you're honest with yourself about how much you can afford to give without burning out.
Tony: So that guy from last night. He's just a deputy DA that you know?
Callie: Well, he is my brother's brother-in-law. And my ex.
Tony: So that's why you were flirting with me?
Callie: I was not flirting with you.
Tony: I just want you to know that I'm not offended that you used me to make your ex jealous. And by the way he marched over to introduce himself, I'd say you succeeded.
Jamie: I just want to say that I don't want to be angry with you anymore.
Callie: I really am sorry for hurting you.
Jamie: Yeah, all of this is just, I don't even know how we got here.
Callie: Me neither.
Jamie: And look, it seems like we are destined to keep running into each other.
Callie: It does.
Jamie: And I just want it to be over and amicable so we can both just go on with our lives. I mean, uh, I don't really see us being friends, but I do think we can be professional.
Callie: Yeah, me too.
Callie: Is that all?
Jamie: No. I also wanted you to know that your new boss, Kathleen Gale, is being investigated by the FBI.
Callie: How do you know that?
Jamie: I'm in the DA's office.
Callie: And you're telling me this, why?
Jamie: I just want you to be aware of something you might be getting yourself into.
Callie: Or you're trying to justify working at the DA's office by discrediting my boss and trying to make me doubt my own judgment.
Jamie: Don't do that! I'm just saying be careful.
Callie: My boss just save Jerod's life. And I'm sure the DA's office isn't happy to have to pay for the actions of deputy gang members that they refuse to do anything about. You know what, if you really do want this to be over and amicable. Why don't you start by not continuing to patronize me. I'm a big girl, Jamie, I can take care of myself. I definitely don't need professional advice from you of all people.
