Alex: 'Sup fam, I was just wondering how the planning is coming for my quince?
Penelope: What the hell are you talking about?
Alex: Oh well, I thought that since Elena had a quince, obviously I would also be getting a party to celebrate my coming of age. This being a house of gender equality and all.
Alex: I just need five hundred dollars, okay?!
Penelope: Five hundred dollars?! Why?!

Alex: I'm not saying it was a good plan, but that was the plan.

Alex: Not in this family! I mean everyone here is killing it! And a badass! And a strong independent woman!
Alex: So I figured that if I'm not gonna be great, it's better not to do it, right?
Penelope: No. You gotta keep doing it.
Alex: You already said I could quit.
Penelope: Yeah, that's when I thought you hated it, but now that I know you love it, I expect you to work until you're miserable. You can't be afraid to fail. You think I'm gonna love you any less because you're not perfect?
Alex: I mean, I'd rather not find out.
