You don't have to like me Olivia, but you are a fool if you don't learn from me.


Look at you! You're asking me for boy advice, your own father. That's how alone you are.


Mellie: It's intoxicating, everyone always doing what I say. I started to think, I can do whatever I want, whomever I want, but that is exactly what they all thought; those old dead guys with their mistresses and their child brides. The pigs! And now, it's happening to me. It's a nightmare.
Cyrus: I never thought about it like that.

Olivia: How's Vermont?
Marcus: Cold. White.
Olivia: No, I mean how's Fitz in Vermont.
Marcus. Cold. White.

So Olivia will help you find these girls and what? Trade in her B-613 horns for a halo?
