The Bold Type Quotes
Kat: I took the Scarlet offer.
Adena: Oh my god, so Don’t Turn Away…
Kat: Is now under the Scarlet umbrella. Six million followers, and our budget is insane.
Adena: Kat, this is amazing. What made you change your mind?
Kat: Well, you were right. I was afraid if I committed to Scarlet, I’d lose control, so I went in there, laid out all the things I needed to make sure that didn’t happen, and Jacqueline said ‘yes’ to all of it.
Adena: Can you just think about all the people you’re going to be able to help now.
Kat: All the people we’re gonna help.
Jacqueline: I have this gut that [Kat] is going to be asset to the future of Scarlet.
Oliver: Those three are going to run this place one day.
Jacqueline: Yeah, they are. It’s actually a strange feeling.
Oliver: What is?

Oliver: What are you saying?
Jacqueline: Maybe my vacation with Ian isn't a vacation. Maybe it’s the beginning of a new chapter together.
I never would have gotten this far without you. I’m always better with you.Kat
Ian: Honey, you chose Jane to cover you on our trip for a reason.
Jacqueline: I know, but what if she needs my help?
Ian: If she’s ever going to learn how to be editor-in-chief, she’s got to do it alone. We deserve this. So does Jane.
Adena: You’re gonna take [Jacqueline] up on that, aren’t you?
Kat: I think she was just saying that to be nice.
Adena: No, Kat, she wasn’t just being nice. She was being Jacqueline, and Jacqueline knows a lot about building a magazine.
Kat: OK, I’ll talk to her.
Sutton: When I saw you the other day, you seemed really happy, and I want you to be happy, like I really do, but it also made me feel kind of bad, you know? That we, that I, I don’t know. That maybe you’re happier without me. That probably sounds really pathetic.
Richard: No, it doesn’t, but I’m glad you said something. I seemed happy because I had just gotten off the phone with an adoption agency, and I decided to start the process.
Richard: Yeah, it’s really early, and there are interviews and character references and so many things I don’t know about yet.
Sutton: That’s really great.
Richard: Sutton, I will never ever think that what we had was anything but incredible. I love you, and I will always love you. And every day still sucks.
Sutton: It sucks so bad.
Richard: I miss you.
Sutton: I miss you too.
Kat: I don’t think I can do it.
Adena: OK, why?
Kat: ‘Cause Don’t Turn Away is our thing.
Adena: It could still be our thing.
Kat: Not if we’re working for a corporation.
Adena: What do you think a VC firm is?
Kat: That’s different. A VC firm contributes to your success. A corporation owns it, and I just feel really claustrophobic, and I think that’s a sign I can't do it.
Adena: Or maybe it’s a sign that you hate the idea of commitment.
Kat: Commitment’s not my favorite thing in the world.
Adena: Look, Don’t Turn Away is going to be a huge success no matter what. I just wouldn’t want you to walk because you’re afraid of losing control. Jacqueline’s not RJ, and maybe you can find a way to commit but still make it your own, if you want to.

Jane: Yes, I have a lot to do. I want to make sure we’re still cranking out material and the rest of the troops are producing.
Jacqueline: How’s Addison?
Jane: She is great. We just had a good one-on-one, trying to be involved and supportive and inspiring like you. Anything else?
Jane: Jacqueline, that’s really sweet, but I’m not going to cry. I admit I was a little blindsided by the reviews, but I’m feeling great. I’m not gonna cry.
Jacqueline: OK. Your pen is leaking. I have a great idea. I want you to go home right now and take tomorrow off also. You have been pressing since the reviews, working nonstop, and I think you need to relax. Just reset. Try a meditation app.
Jane: Jacqueline, I can’t because I have my vertical and my employees…
Jacqueline: Which will all benefit if you do this. You know that I want what’s best for you, right? Trust me.
Jane: I wish there was some magic potion that would take me out of my head and put me into hers.
Kat: There is.
Sutton: Besides wine?
Jane: Well, by all means don’t tell us. I don’t care.

Jane: What are you doing?
Sutton: I love this poof. It’s like a furry little planet that loves and supports me.
Jane: OK, Sutton, I think we took too much. Andrew’s caramel tart literally had a heartbeat.
Sutton: This feels so good on my lips.
Jane: We’re tripping balls.
Sutton: What the hell am I doing with my life? I put everything into my career, everything. It’s why I didn’t start dating Richard sooner. It’s part of the reason I don’t have to have children. Companies like Villadar are killing the planet, and do I want to be involved with that? What does that say about me as a person? Why are looking at yourself in the mirror like that?
Kat: I look weird, right?
Sutton: What are you talking about?
Kat: I look like washed out, flat. Does I always look like this? Who am I?
Sutton: I thought this was supposed to help us, not make us question literally everything.
Kat: OK, hold on. Sometimes questioning things is good, you know. Maybe we need to shed who we are now to become who we’re supposed to be, or maybe it’s just a bad trip.
Sutton: That can happen?
Kat: Oh yeah, if you’re in a bad headspace, it can get pretty gnarly.
Sutton: How do we know if that’s what’s happening?
Kat: We get to the end.
Sutton: I’m gonna need help getting there with some white wine.
Sutton: Do we drink too much?
Kat: Us? Who’s out here drinking three drinks a week? No one. We drink the correct amount.
Sutton: Do I drink too much?
Kat: What’s going on boo?
Sutton: I just… well, Oliver said some things to me today that scared me.
Sutton: That I remind him of Jasper when he had a problem.
Jane: Oh honey.
Sutton: The truth is I’ve been drinking more since Richard and I separated. I sort of felt like it was a reasonable way to cope, but with my family and my mom, do you guys think it’s a problem.
Jane: We’re your best friends, so I don’t think we’re really capable of answering that question.
Sutton: Well, I wish that somebody would because I would like to know.
