American Crime Season 3 Episode 6: "3.06" Quotes
Jeanette: I went down to the Carolina Career Center today, looking for work. But they didn't have nothing worth anything. They told me to take some courses and work in food services.
Raelyn: You'll find something.
Jeanette: Nothing that I want. There's nothing that pays a living wage.
Raelyn: Where you been? You think I like working for nothing?
Jeanette: I thought it might be different for you.
Jeanette: Because of your situation, I thought it might be more difficult for you.
Raelyn: Because I got a conviction, you mean. Let me tell you something. You know why minimum wage is so low? Cause they buried it in that transgender bathroom bill, got people all scared and they voted against their own interest. Some people are stupid, that's why things are the way they are.
Woman: So you've been a homemaker?
Jeanette: Well, no, I've helped my husband in his business. With clients and everything.
Woman: So employee relations and customer service.
Jeanette: Yes, if a buyer was coming in from out of town I'd try to make them welcome and show them the farm, give them a tour and stuff like that.
Woman: I see. And your interests...
Jeanette: Anything healthcare related? I thought I'd like to do that.
Woman: Well, maybe medical assistant certificate would be a good route for you.
Jeanette: What is that, like a nurse or something?
Woman: More like a physician's assistant, but unlicensed.
Jeanette: And how long would the course take?
Woman: Nine months.
Jeanette: Oh, no, I need something right now.
Woman: If you need something right away, try the local sit-down restaurants or fast food. If you're willing to do food service, there's plenty of opportunities available.
Jeanette: How much do those pay?
Woman: Minimum wage, about $7.50
Jeanette: My sister's making minimum wage. We need two incomes, two good paying incomes.
Woman: Well, get you a minimum wage job and take one of our courses and the time'll just fly by.
Raelyn: Sleep okay? I know you got that thing with your back.
Jeanette: Oh, I'm fine.
Raelyn: Carson called.
Raelyn: On the cell, this morning. He wanted to know if I knew where you were.
Jeanette: What'd you say?
Raelyn: I hadn't heard from you.
Raelyn: He do something to you?
Jeanette: Not to me.
Raelyn: Then when are you gonna talk to him?
Jeanette: You're taking Carson's side now?

Abby: Can we talk?
Kimara: That's what we're doing.
Abby: I can't do this in my office. So can we talk?

Abby: I'm sorry Greg contacted you.
Kimara: Are you? Are you sorry he contacted me or sorry you committed fraud?
Claire: I wish I had put more into his early years. You get so stressed out , you know, that you don't realize how it's affecting you and then he's grown up and there's no stress anymore.
Nick: Yeah, cause you don't have to do anything. You got a nanny to do everything for you.
Claire: She doesn't do EVERYTHING.
Nick: No. She just does everything you're supposed to do. And here's the kicker, she only speaks French.
Claire: She's sweet.
Nick: Yeah, unless you tell her something in English. Then she just stares at you because she can't understand a word you're saying.
