I’d appreciate your cooperation as we bring the highway into St. Jo and ready the community for fracking.


You all forget sometimes that I’ve got history on my side. I’ve done collected a few chips to play when I need them.


Well, you know better now. Do better now.


Ralph Angel: You’ve been through a lot, Darla, addiction, assault. You was violated in the worst way.
Darla: But I don’t want you to see me as all those thing. I don’t want to be that. I want you to look at me like you used to.
Ralph Angel: I don’t think I can. What I see now is more brave, more beautiful, better than I’d ever seen. I see you, Darla, all of you and I love all of it. I love you.

Parker: I will take your land. In fact, the Beckington Group has already sent a letter of intent to condemn and possess the farm belonging to Ralph Angel Bordelon.
Charley: It’ll never happen. You don’t know me.
Parker: And you don’t know me.

For all the mistakes I’ve made I have learned the most valuable lesson of my life, my family is my beating heart. I cannot exist without them. I will honor them first and foremost with my every waking breath from this day on, putting them first. Learning from their bravery and growing in my own.


Micah: I’m sorry for how I told you about Harvard. I shouldn’t have sprung it on you like that.
Charley: I appreciate that and my response, it wasn’t just about Harvard. This election…I just want you to have every chance, every advantage.
Micah: I already have advantages and I’m thankful for them. I want to use my advantages to help others.

Reporter: You’re saying you’re innocent.
Charley: You’re damn right I’m innocent. To whoever is fueling these attacks on me and my family, to whoever tried and failed to permanently purge our supporters from the voter rolls, it won’t work. When you come for me and the people of St. Jo, you better not miss, and you missed. We’ll see you at the polls.

Violet: Like the fire wasn’t bad enough, to try and say you were the one who set it is a sick joke.
Charley: Well, I’m sure Frances had a good laugh having me carted off by the cops.
Violet: Well, you know, you gonna have the last laugh.
Charley: What is this, Aunt Vi?
Violet: Information, the most valuable thing you can have at a time like this.

Nice house, Jimmy. I see, you the one who had to clean up to come see me cause you know you ain’t nothing, never been nothing. This your life. Your prime over, and all you’ve got is nasty words. I won. I got the good life. I got the money. I got the house. I got the business, I got the respect, love, and you got nothing. You’re just an old, worn down dog. You ain’t shit. Never have been.


I realized something. I ain’t got to worry about the Landrys bringing us down. I’ve got to worry about enemies, for what? When I’ve got a sister like Nova Bordelon right here.

Charley: Now, I can handle losing a race fair and square but this isn’t that.
Prosper: And it also ain’t nothing new. Just a new twist on an old trick. Now if it’s a matter of getting souls to the polls, we do it the old fashioned way. We put together a phone tree, get the word out to everybody we know. And I’ve already talked to Pastor Martinez about getting some of his members to put together a transportation schedule and we can arrange pick up times and locations to maximize the turnout. We’re not going to just lay down and die.

Queen Sugar Quotes

The players who got caught with the girl are just kids, coming straight out of high school. No home training, no life skills. We hand them millions of dollars and then say good luck. They marry riffraff. They live wild, now they're messing up our livelihood.


Nova: Be good.
Calvin: I won't tell you the same.
Nova: You know better.
