Chanel: You should slow down on the drinking. My life's falling apart too but you don't see me drinking all day long.
Xander: Why? What's wrong with you?
Chanel: My mom cut off my credit cards and wants me to get a job.
Xander: You lost your credit cards? Oh, what a bloody tragedy. Here. [Gives her his wallet.] Here's some new credit cards.

Belle: I'm not going to let Jan Spears send my dad to prison.
John: And I'm not going to let Jan go free!
Belle: It's not up to you. It's up to me.
John: If you don't call Shawn to arrest her, I'm going to go to the police station and file charges myself.
Belle: You can't do that. She didn't do anything to you.
John: So I'll lie.

Sami: And now Sydney's gone off to school and it's just the two of us [her and EJ]... I shouldn't be telling you this.
Lucas: Of course you should. You gotta tell somebody. And I'm 100% on your side.
Sami: Are you on my side? About this though?
Lucas: Of course I am.
Sami: You've gotta understand, it's been hard for EJ. You have to understand how much pain he's in and he is so proud and he pretends he's not and sometimes he can't help it. He needs my help when he has no other choice and he hates that. He's mad all the time. He's mad at the pain and at being so helpless and he's mad at the world. And I can understand that. I can. In my head, I understand it. But sometimes in my heart it feels like he's mad at me. I keep telling myself it'll get better but that's not what happened. It's not just the pain. It's like something got twisted up inside of him and now he pushes me away.
Lucas: Objectively speaking, that sounds like hell.
Sami: It is and all I can do is sit and watch.
Lucas: You're not just sitting and watching it. You're living it. You've done everything you can for that man. Look, if someone's drowning and they try to take you down with them and you push them away, that's not giving up. That's survival.

“I knew I should have hired Carrie.”


Sami: I knew I could trust you!
Rafe: Yeah? Is that why you lied to me?
Sami: You're never gonna let that go, are you? Could you just go tell Trask and see if she'll let me go now?
Rafe: I will talk to Trask. I want you out of my station and out of my hair.

Claire: So I was sitting in the Square and Chanel wanted to drink champagne and she said she was buying, so I thought why not?
Belle: And you didn't think it was strange that some random girl wanted to drink champagne with you in the middle of the day?

Jan: John killed Marlena?
Shawn: We were going to call him the Salem Strangler, but that name was already taken.

Rex: Xander already knows. He walked in on me and Sarah having sex.
Roman: Doesn't anyone lock their doors anymore?

Sami: You're the police commissioner! Can't you look the other way?
Rafe: No! Come on, Sami, there's no such thing as 'Sorry. I had a really good reason for committing that crime.'

Lani: The twins were exhausted. They fell right asleep.
Eli: I don't blame them. I'm tired after that scene in the Square.
Lani: I know you thought Aunt Paulina was drama, but Chanel... that girl is something else.
Eli: Yeah. You know, I worried about us raising kids on cops' salaries. But looking at her, now I see there's such a thing as having too much money.

Chanel: I don't appreciate you yelling at me in public like that.
Paulina: I tried more than once to tell you that we should discuss this in private. But you don't listen. It has finally gotten through this thick skull of mine that you are so self-absorbed that you can't listen to anyone or anything.
Chanel: You hate me.
Paulina: No. I love you more than anything. But I have failed you as a mother. I spoiled you and now you think you are entitled to whatever you want. Trying to stiff those poor kids just for self-indulgence!
Chanel: I'm sorry.
Paulina: You're just sorry cause you got caught this time. I should have done something about this a lot earlier. But this dynamic is going to change starting right now.
Chanel: I'll do better. Give me a budget and I'll stick to it.
Paulina: You're gonna be the one to make up a budget with your own money.
Chanel: You're putting me on a salary?
Paulina: No. You're gonna get a job.
Chanel: But I don't need a job. We're rich.
Paulina: I'M rich. You need a job. Now, do you know how I became rich? By working. So you'd better get your butt back to Miami and start doing the same.
Chanel: But I don't have gas money to go back to Miami. So if you're gonna cut me off, I'm gonna stay right here.

Sami: I told you already. I have nothing more to say to you.
Rafe: Yes. And in most cases, fewer words from you is something that I would welcome. But I didn't come here to speak. I came here to tell you that you have a visitor.
Sami: Oh good. I hope it's my new lawyer, since I got dropped as a client by my loving sister.
[Lucas comes in]
Lucas: Try again. The loving ex-husband.
