Quotes Edit

  • The Axeman: The joke was they always watched the bass player. But they should have watched my fingers... on the keys... my body in perfect synchronization… an extension of my instrument... no effort at all, just one with hit. The way my lips and my tongue wrapped around my instrument was... impeccable. My embouchure... that's how I calibrate, hit those clear, high, notes.


  • Delphine LaLaurie: It's this century. It still does perplex me so.
  • Queenie: You think I'm any less perplexed? I dragged my ass all the way here from Detroit to be with my, quote, "sister witches." And instead I'm sitting in a fast-food parking lot at 3 in the morning with an immortal racist. How'd that happen?


  • The Axeman: Is the bourbon smooth enough? Women don't usually like a harsh whiskey.
  • Fiona Goode: Well, never assume anything about me. My taste in whiskey... or men.


  • Madison Montgomery: I am a Millennial. Generation Y. born between the birth of AIDS and 9/11, give or take. They call us "the Global Generation." We are known for our entitlement and narcissism. Some say it's because we're the first generation where every kid gets a trophy just for showing up. Others think it's because social media allows us to post every time we fart or have a sandwich for all the world to see.


  • Fiona Goode: I get it. You're not just any old broke-down sax man, you're a college-educated one.
  • The Axeman: I've led a... solitary life.


  • Madison Montgomery: I know I did anything I could to not feel. Sex, drugs, booze. Just take away the pain. Take away my mother and my asshole father. and the press, and all the boys I loved who wouldn't love me back. Hell, I was gang raped, and two days later I was back in class like nothing happened. I mean, that must have hurt like hell, right?
