Zoey's Extraordinary Playlist Quotes
Mitch: So how’s my girl?
Zoey: Not so great. The past couple months have been rough, and my powers make everything worse. I just feel alone being the only one out there with this gift.
Mitch: I would think at this point your powers would be doing the exact opposite.
Zoey: Opposite how?
Mitch: Showing that everybody has fears and vulnerabilities and struggles. Isn't there some comfort in that?
Zoey: I want to be with you and somehow together we will find a way to make it work.
Max: Uh Zoey, I think you just sang a heart song to me.
Simon: I feel like you know everything about me, Zoey, and there’s a piece of you I can’t know or that you won’t let me know.
Zoey: I’m sorry. I’ve been trying.
Simon: Maybe that’s part of the problem. You shouldn’t have to try so hard. Look, um, we both went through some very tough stuff at the same exact time and maybe we confused a bonding over a shared grief with something else.
Zoey: Maybe but the connection was undeniable.
Simon: Yeah, which is why I don’t regret it. It made me feel better. I hope it did the same for you.
Zoey: It did.
Zoey: So you told Danny Michael Davis to give me the job?
Max: I suggested it, and he ran with my suggestion.
Zoey: OK, so this job, the thing I am most proud of in my entire life I thought I earned with my skills and my merit, but it turns out that it was just handed to me because why, because what? You felt bad for me? Do you have any idea how embarrassing that is, Max?
Max: It’s not a big deal. I didn’t know I would ever see you again.
Zoey: It’s a huge deal and a pretty darn big secret to be keeping from someone who apparently doesn’t know everything that’s going on in your head.
Max: OK, you want to know the real reason why I told Danny Michael Davis to give you the job instead of me?
Zoey: Yes, please, please enlighten me.
Max: Because you deserved more than anybody. Because I saw your passion and intelligence from minute one and knew instantly that you belonged there because you are a great coder who is meant to be there. And I wasn’t gonna take that opportunity from you even if we had just met that day.
Zoey: That’s really very nice and something that I wish you wouldn’t have kept from me for six whole years.
Max: Now you know. I’m sorry you had to find out like this.
Zoey: Max, wait. I am going to miss you very much.
Zoey: I need to tell Max how I feel before he leaves.
Mo: Oh, so we’re going there.
Zoey: We are going there because if I don’t say something I might regret it for the rest of my life.
Max: You know you can keep trying, but that thing’s never actually going to make you invisible.
Zoey: Max? I don’t understand. You didn’t go to New York with Rose?
Max: No, I broke it off with her at the airport. She could tell I was distracted thinking about someone else. And we decided it wasn’t fair, not to her, not to me. listen, I can’t know what’s going on in your head, and maybe, there will always be this power imbalance between the two of us because of that, but I don’t care.
Zoey: Max Richman, I am not going to be scared anymore. OK, I’m not gonna run away from you because I’m afraid of feeling too much. I… I have no idea what the universe has in store for you and me, but what I do know is there is someone very special looking over us, so I guess what I’m trying to say is…
Mo: So therapy’s going great, huh?
Zoey: Here’s the most screwed up part. Most of sessions aren’t even about my powers; they’re about Max. Which makes me wonder, did we make a huge mistake putting things on pause?
Mo: Girl, why are you whispering?
Zoey: Because it makes things less scary that way.
Mo: You do realize you’re still with Simon, right?
Mo: And that Max is leaving for New York tomorrow with Rose.
Zoey: I completely agree with you. It’s absolutely not fair with Simon to even be having these thoughts. Maybe it’s time he and I have a talk.
Mo: A talk or the talk?
Zoey: The talk. I don’t know. Simon is great. It’s just not working, but the last thing I want to do is hurt him.
Mo: Well, honey you can completely avoid and let that fester. That’s healthy.
Zoey: Do you think maybe we should have a talk about…
Zoey: Yeah, I’ve been thinking…
Simon: I have too.
Simon: I think we should break up.
Zoey: Oh, OK.
Perry: I’ve been doing a lot of thinking, Mo. How I see myself in the world, and the kind of messages I want to send out there for my children. I don’t want my baggage to get in the way of…
Mo: I’m sorry. I’m not about to do this with you. The guests of honors are on their way, so…
Perry: Fine, but I’m not leaving until you talk to me.
Zoey: I just wanted to let you know I haven’t told anyone about you and I, except for Mo, oh, and my mom.
Simon: All right, well maybe it’s best we keep it that way just for tonight, for them.
Zoey: Oh yeah, I agree. Let’s not make tonight about us for Max and Rose’s sake. Oh, there they are. You guys look great.
Zoey: Simon and I broke up.
Simon: Yeah we sure did. It’s the perfect time for me to grab a drink.
Max: Are you OK?
Zoey: Yeah, sorry that just slipped out, but you guys probably would have found out.
Rose: I’m sure we would have.
Zoey: Dad, I really screwed things up with Max. Even last night all I had to say was, ‘Don’t go.’
Mitch: So why didn’t you? Oh I know, it’s scary. It’s unpredictable.
Zoey: Look what happened to you.
Mitch: I’m sorry about that. Life is full of surprises, and it can be hard for somebody who wants to feel like they’re in control of everything, but if you never take the risks…
Zoey: So what do you think I should do?
Mitch: I’m not gonna give you any answers. I never needed to. You’re way smarter than I am. The only thing I can tell you is the things I wish for you, my daughter.
Maggie: Honey, what are we doing here? Weren’t we just installing a garden this morning.
Mitch: We were, and we’ll be installing many more very soon.
Maggie: But not for Mrs. Edelstein.
Mitch: Definitely not.
Maggie: Mitchell, listen, if anything should happen to me in there, it’s OK because if one of us had to go it alone from here, you are the one that’s strong enough to pull that off.
Mitch: Let’s not even talk that way, OK.
Maggie: I know, but I mean it. You know I’ll always be your girl. I would want you to go on living life, and I would want you to find love. I know you would look after Zoey and David, but I would want you to look after you too.
Mitch: Well, I just can’t lose you. I can’t, OK.
