Good Trouble Season 1 Episode 5: "Parental Guidance Suggested" Quotes
Moms aren't exactly thrilled about this whole communal living thing. I want them to have a good impression of The Coterie.Callie
Gael: You ever afraid you won't be able to live up to your potential?
Callie: All the time.
Lena: OK, so it's important that we're excited about their first apartment. We trust them, and we're not overly protective or critical.
Stef: Got it, and if their hair is on fire we just smile and say nothing.
Is this a working tub? It's so big like two people can fit in here.Stef
Irate Man: You libtards are all about the handouts, and you lazy blacks are the worse.
Lena: OK, thank you for your time.
Malika: What would happen if the judge found out we knew each other?
Callie: I would probably be taken off the case, and he'd give it to Ben or Rebecca.
Malika: Would that be so bad?
Callie: They won't challenge him.
Ben: Hey, so uh, what's it like living above The Palace theater? Do they still have shows?
Callie: Yeah, they do.
Ben: Do you know everyone who lives there?
Callie: No, I don't. Why?
Ben: No reason.
Bryan: Dav, I'm really into him.
Davia: I know.
Bryan: It's hard to compete with Callie when she lives here, and she can just sneak up to his place anytime she wants. He always says he's working on his art, but I don't see any new pieces.
Davia; His art sucks anyway.
Lena: So Gael, Mariana tells me that you work together at Speckulate.
Gael: Yeah, I'm a graphic designer.
Stef: Oh yeah, how do you like that?
Gael: I like it. I'm actually an independent contractor, so my hours are a little bit more flexible so I can work on my art.
Davia: Oh, and how is that going? You're art? I mean with all the people you're dating, how do you find the time?
Stef: Maybe someday if you have kids you'll understand.
Dennis: Hm. I had a kid.
Stef: You had a kid?
Dennis: A son. We lost him when he was six. Rare cancer.
Stef: I'm sorry.
Dennis: Yeah, I had the big house, the corporate job. After Jacob died, I just couldn't play the game anymore. I couldn't be what my wife needed me to be. After our marriage fell apart, I thought, why not do what you always wanted to? Play music. So I moved in here where everyone is too young to have a kid and too self-involved to ask what my story is. Look, I know I'm not going to be a Rockstar, I just need something that can fill me up. Jacob would have been eight this week. His birthday, so, I guess I haven't asked Aria to leave because I don't want to be alone.
Stef: I don't think you're alone here. A lot of people really care about you from what I can see. Just ask, you know?
Dennis: I feel like I'm always alone.
Gael: I know living here with Malika can be complicated for you.
Callie: Living here with you is too. It hurt seeing you with Bryan
Gael: I'm sorry.
Callie: No, it's OK. We can see other people.
Gael: Yeah, and I guess it hurt me when you said you didn't want to introduce me as anything to your moms. I know we're not in a committed thing, but we don't have to be exclusive to admit that this thing isn't just casual. Not for me.
Callie: It isn't for me either.
We don't stop being your mothers just because you grow up.Lena
