Gordon: You OK?
Renata: Fine. I'm not liked.
Gordon: What was that?
Renata: I said I'm not liked.
Gordon: That simply isn't true, honey.
Renata: It's one thing to be demonized for having the temerity of a career, but look at us. Look at our life. What kind of woman chooses to work? Certainly not a mother, not by any acceptable standards. You should have seen the way they looked at me today. Oh, my God. And on the one day that I chose not to go to the office and join my daughter for her orientation and then defend her when she's physically assaulted. And then yes, I reacted, humanly like any mother would. And was met with utter contempt.
Abigail: You seem a little wobbly. Are you having one of your massive periods?
Madeline: No. No. What people don't tell you is that you lose your children. As beautiful and wonderful as you are now, the little girl whose hair I used to detangle and had bad dreams and used to crawl into my bed? She's gone. I guess that's what I'm feeling a little bit. Compounded a little bit by the fact your sister's going into the first grade. I'm losing my babies. Which has been clinically compared to a massive period, I think.
Chloe: Guys, mom had a day.
Madeline: And don't your start.
Chloe: I'm on your side, woman.
Chloe: When I grow up, I'm gonna run a massive label. Do you have plans?
Chloe: What kind of music do you listen to? Don't tell me. Bowie.
