Let me tell you something Mr. Mayor, you can take our homes, our rights, but you can't silence our voices! 


Derrick: I don't like to have to go out there and spin bullshit based on something you and the mayor are keeping from me. I'm starting to feel like a fucking sellout!
Jessica: You are not a sellout. Keep your head down. Do your job.
Derrick: So we're back to that Jessica? Just when I think you put cause over politics, you remind me who you really are.

Stephanie: Are you in love with her?
Bobby: Steph, it's 2 am.

Stephanie: I want you to do whatever you want to do. If you want to be with her, I think you should be with her. If you want to self-destruct, go right ahead. But when everything comes crashing down, please do not expect me to be a prop in your apology tour. 

McGann: I don't know what you think you're going to do with this theory of yours, but I have a groundbreaking to prepare for.

Keri: So where do we go from here?
Stephanie: Home.
