Masters of Sex Season 4 Episode 4 Quotes

I don't mean to burst your bubble, but I'm not trying to get into your pants. Look, if it were up to me I'd be out the door, but my ride has apparently up and disappeared right at the moment that everyone has lost their mind and decided to start playing sexual roulette.


The question isn't do they love each other enough. It's are they willing to truly engage in the work of intimacy? To stand naked in front of each other outside the bedroom. Are they capable of reflection, of change? Are they able to let go of and forgive each other for their hurt and disappointment that's brought them here?
