Younger Season 7 Episode 1: "A Decent Proposal" Quotes
Charles: Well, I think I got my answer.
Liza: The answer is I love you, but technically you’re not even divorced yet.
Charles: Yeah, that’s true.
Liza: I also think you might be a little drunk.
Charles: Absolutely buzzed, and you’re avoiding the question.
Liza: It is the most beautiful question I have ever heard, but I have a daughter I need to talk to, and you have to speak to your girls as well. We don’t have to rush. I’m not going anywhere.
Charles: Fine, you know how I feel. Sometimes I can be impatient when I know what I want, but I understand. So you can consider the proposal officially withdrawn.
Liza: Wait, are you un-asking me to marry you?
Charles: Yep, so that when you’re ready, you can pop the question.
Kelsey: Do you think it’s a mistake to go back to Millennial?
Lauren: And piss of a bipolar billionaire that agreed to fund your company? Of course not.
Josh: I think Clare’s trying to kidnap Gemma.
Kelsey and Lauren: What?
Josh: Yeah, she just texted me. She wants me to sign off on an expedited passport so she can take Gemma to Ireland to meet the family. Do you think I should be worried?
Kelsey: No, it’s perfectly normal that Clare would want Gemma to meet her family.
Lauren: OK, and since when has there ever been anything normal about Clare?
Josh: Maybe I should just go to Ireland. Just in case to be safe.
Kelsey: So you are freaking out about turning 30. I have to go screw over a mercurial billionaire, but you win.
Josh: Wait, you’re turning 30?
Kelsey: Look, let’s just go to dinner. Just you and me, and we can talk this out. I love you, and I don’t care where you work. I want you to be happy, but…
Zane: Kelsey, I love you too, and I know I’ll never meet anyone like you again, but the competition, it’s crushing me. I need a fresh start?
Kelsey: Are you breaking up with me because I got promoted over you?
Zane: I am probably doing the stupidest thing of my life, letting you go, but at least for now, I think that’s best.
Kelsey: We just lost Millennial. Everything’s going back to Empirical now.
Liza: Wait, what?
Kelsey: Yeah, the board just voted on the name change, so everything we worked for is gone, including my relationship. God, I should have just never stayed. My instincts are just terrible.
Liza: OK, that’s not true. You’re instincts are great. They’ve gotten you this far, and Millennial, it’s just a name.
Kelsey: A name of something we built.
Liza: We are still building something. Don’t get stuck on labels. The only thing that matters is the books.
Liza: I know you never really liked him.
Josh: Come on. That’s not true. I do like him for you. It brings me joy to know that you are happy. You deserve that. I want that for you for real.
Liza: Josh, you are so special to me. I always want you in my life. Promise me that.
Josh: Yeah, I want you in mine too, always, forever. Relationships don’t have to be defined, right?
Liza: No, no they don’t.
Josh: We know who we are to each other.
Liza: We’re us.
Josh: Yeah, we’re us. We’re always going to be no matter who we’re with.
Liza: I don’t want to lose that moment, this feeling.
Charles: We won’t.
Liza: Then can we just keep riding the perfect ride? I’ve been married, and it didn’t go so well. I love you, and I don’t want anything from you except your heart. I want to be happily unmarried to you every day.
Charles: Whoa, that was not the proposal I was expecting, but I do know what I want, and it’s not a ride or some kind of fantasy. I want to get off the carousel. I want a partner in life.
Liza: I’m still your partner.
Charles: For life. I may be old-fashioned, but I believe in marriage, and it may not have worked out for either of us the first time, but I believe that it can work again.
Liza: And I think we’re finally free of needing to define ourselves of those rules and obligations. I want to be everything to you.
Charles: We’re not young, Liza, and we both deserve what we really want. Thank you for letting me know what’s in your heart.
