Gil: Let's get out of here. I got a bottle of bourbon in my drawer.
Jessica: How can a girl refuse? Oh please, Gil. I have to fix this.
Gil: You're always worried about everyone else. Let somebody worry about you for a change.
Jessica: Wait, you're not going to help me.
Gil: This case has consumed Bright. I want to help by making sure it doesn't do the same for you.
Jessica: You don't get to make that decision
Dani: Whatever the problem is, I'm sure you can fix it.

Ainsley: Can't you at least try to be happy for me?
Jessica: I'm overjoyed. My home is surrounded by so-called journalists, your father has finally succeeded in making me a prisoner in my own home, and he had the assist by his overly ambitious offspring. Ambitious isn't a dirty word. It's the best thing about me, that and my hair.
Jessica: Your father destroyed us. Your brother and me and you put him on television and let him talk about it. You have gone and soaked yourself in blood. The press devoured us 20 years ago, and now they are at it again.
Ainsley: You're playing the victim.
Jessica: I am not a victim, but there are victims. Real ones. How do you think those 23 families feel when they see you on television, and why is the story never about them?
Ainsley: I'm not going to apologize for what I did. I used the media to direct the narrative.
Jessica: What does that even mean?
Ainsley: I'm telling my story not letting somebody else do it.
