Zoey's Extraordinary Playlist Season 2 Episode 10: "Zoey's Extraordinary Girls' Night" Quotes
Zoey: I feel like something very bad is going on with Emily, and I’m worried about her, but she doesn’t want any help.
Simon: You think Keenan wanted my help? Look, if there’s someone close to you, and they’re in need, you go to them. You say, ‘We are going to work through this together.’ That’s what a coach does, a good coach anyway.
Zoey: All right. I’m gonna go back to Emily, and I’m gonna try again.
Simon: Great, great, you go up there. You be direct. You keep fighting through the play even if she tries to box you out.
Zoey: I don’t know what that means, but I still like it.
David: Fine, you’re right. Something is going on with Emily. She’s just very private, and I don’t want to draw any attention to it.
Emily: So just tell me what it is.
David: I have no idea. Come here. Her behavior is all over the map. Sometimes she gets up super early and rushes off to work and seems totally fine. Other times she won’t leave Miles’s side, and she balls during yogurt commercials.
Emily: Well, that could happen to anybody. Have you tried just being direct with Emily and asking her what’s going on because Simon says…
David: Over and over again, but any time I even try to get her to open up she just deflects, and she says nothing’s wrong. And then she starts baking a cake, and I get distracted, and I start eating the cake, and that’s why I’m wearing my house jeans. I don’t know, Zoey. I don’t know what else to do.
Perry: I think the cinnamon mo-caroons go best with the mochaccino, but is it really wise to name everything on the special morning menu after you?
Mo: Oh baby, I didn’t name the mochaccino. That’s just what they’re called.
Simon: Maybe you just need to step back and let Emily come to you when she’s ready.
Zoey: No, if I don’t do anything, bad things happen. The medium said I need to pay more attention to the people in my life, and Emily’s the darkest case.
Zoey: Case study in depression that I’ve ever seen, and I don’t know what to do about that. I’m not a professional, but I do know how to read, so I am reading. Do you know how many pages there are in this book?
Simon: I can see you’re trying really hard to help her, but if you’re patient, she will come to you. They always do. Give Emily some time to marinate, and until then, relax, lay back, and connect with someone you really care about who some say is handsome.
Zoey: Really? People say that?
Simon: Yeah, once in a while. Have a quiet intimate evening at home.
Zoey: That’s a great idea. I will do a girls night with Emily.
Zoey: I have to do this my own way. She needs me.
Mo: Well, sweetie what do you need?
Zoey: I don’t need anything. I’m fine.
Mo: Honey, your cuticles are screaming at me, telling me a whole other story.
Mo: I don’t understand how I’m supposed to get to know Perry as a person if I don’t see him as a father. I mean I made out with a CPR dummy for that man.
Simon: The age gap, the kids, the ex. You’re going through a lot to make it work with this guy.
Mo: Listen, Simon, when you truly connect with someone, you will do anything to make it work.
Maggie: Hey, I’m Shelia from Long Island, and this is my friend Liz, and we’re celebrating because this girl just got out of prison.
Deb: It sure beats stamping license plates. I’m gonna kill you.
Maggie: And that’s what she was in for. No, it wasn’t at all. It was tax evasion.
Simon: This is going to sound crazy, but you ever get the sense Zoey has this supernatural ability to know exactly what you’re thinking?
Max: No idea what you’re talking about.
Mo: Not idea at all.
Emily: I’m sorry you had to witness another one of my breakdowns.
Zoey: Please don’t be sorry. You’ve been trying to handle this alone for too long. So can we please talk about what’s going on?
Emily: I’ve been going through these bouts of anxiety and depression for a while now. I thought it was baby blues, which passes after a few weeks. When it didn’t, I figured when Miles starts sleeping through the night or when I went back to work, I’d feel better. It just got worse. I can’t sleep when Miles is asleep. I can't focus when I’m not home with him, but when I am home with him, I just want to cry or run away ‘cause I can’t help but think he’d be better off without me
Zoey: I’m… I’m so sorry to hear that, but no, you’re a great mom, and Miles is lucky to have you.
Emily: I know that logically, but I don’t feel that. You know when you have a baby, your body becomes this machine, and when it short-circuits…
Zoey: Have you talked about this with your doctor? What about David?
Emily: You guys just lost your dad. David’s still mourning, and I feel weird or selfish talking about my own stuff right now. He’s got enough to worry about.
Zoey: He’s your husband. He loves you. And you have the right to feel what you’re feeling too.
Emily: I’ve just been able to conquer anything I put my mind to, you know? I should be able to get over this.
Zoey: I so understand feeling that way, but here’s the thing, maybe some problems are too big for us to handle on our own.
Perry: You were great.
Mo: What changed your mind?
Perry: I thought what better way to introduce them to you than doing what you love. August, Amira, this is Mo, my friend.
Mo: Yes, I am your dad’s friend. We met at work, while he was saving me from fires. Do you know what platonic means?
Perry: Too much. Reel it in.
August: Are you a famous pop star? You sing like one.
Amira: I like your braids. Daddy, can I do my hair like that?
Mo: I really like them.
Max: I don’t want to risk not telling you how I feel again. I don’t want to be casual with you Rose. That’s not me. I’m not Mr. Casual, and just because you’re headed back east doesn’t mean this has to end.
Rose: Oh, thank god.
Rose: I have been trying to play it cool ‘cause I didn’t want to pressure you.
Rose: Yeah, yes, I would very much like to keep this going.
Therapist: So, what brings you in today?
Zoey: I have a superpower, and I think it might be ruining my life.
