How the hell did you end up here?

Beck VO

Ross: Found an item. We're testing it for DNA now.
Joe: Wow. That would be crazy.
Joe VO: I forgot the goddamn jar.
Joe: Well if it's true, I hope you find the guy.
Joe VO: I should've pissed myself.
Joe: Let me know if there is anything I can do.
Ross: Thanks, Joe. You mind calling if you think of anything else?
Joe: Yeah.
Joe VO: And does urine even have DNA?
Joe: Will do.

I know this is a lot. It makes me terrified sharing things with you, but if you're being honest, your life has been better since you met me. You just didn't know why or how. Beck, I love you, and loving someone means you'll do anything for them.


I really thought you two were endgame. It just shakes the faith.


You said you believe I have a good heart somewhere. I hope you don't mind if I take a moment to look for it.

Joe VO

You have no idea what it takes to love my life. They don't write books about women like me. No one would think too.


Joe: Oh God. I wish I knew what you were thinking. Tell me.
Beck VO: What's in the box?
Beck: Tell me. Tell me I'm crazy. Tell me you didn't kill Benji. Tell me you didn't kill Peach.

Joe: I'll be back soon. The basement is off limits until I finish performing open heart surgery on a first edition, Sylvia Plath.
Ethan: Nice. What kind of position is she in?
Joe: Fragile. Very fragile.

Joe: You don't understand. I would never hurt someone I love.
Beck: Tell that to Candace you sick fuck!

Beck: I feel bad for you, Joe.
Joe VO: Was that pity? disgust? empathy? Beck, I am really putting myself out there, Beck. The least you can do is acknowledge that.

Didn't you ask for it? So say you can live like this. Say you thank you. Say anything but the truth. What if you can't love him back.

Beck VO

Mooney: I know the demons that drive you. I have them too. It takes discipline to prevail. That's why I work you so hard. Why I demand perfection. Love for the books. Respect. I'm trying to teach you a code to love by so that you don't end up like your father.
Young Joe: And when I fail you lock me in.
Mooney: Exactly because I love you. I only hope that it will be enough.

YOU Season 1 Quotes

Joe: Hey you.
Beck: Oh Joe, thank God! Peach was attacked in Central Park in broad daylight. She's headed to the ER now.
Joe: She's alive?

A guy needs to protect himself. I had to make sure you're safe, and your name was a glorious place to start. Not a lot of Guinevere Becks. And there you were, every account sent to public. You want to be seen, heard, known, and of course, I obliged.
Born and raised Nantucket Island. A brother Clyde and sister Anya. Your parents really were assholes about the names. Your folks split when you were 12. Your dad dropped out of the picture.
Went to Brown where you majored in Lit. Cool. And minored in douchebags. Eh. And then on to NYC to conquer an MFA, and make your mark presumably. Now you still write, barely. Too busy living out moments you won't remember five years from now. I know this because you post about this life all the goddamn time. Candidly, it's the least appealing thing about you, Beck.
