Quotes Edit

  • Liv Moore: Every time Major calls me his friend, I ache. I miss the "girl" modifier. But the truth is, we were practically besties from the moment we met. That's why we were so great together. Underneath all the love and the desire to tear each other's clothes off, was the person I wanted to share every detail of my life with. Without that, it's not really a relationship, is it? Is it just sex? Is that who you are? A zombie booty call?


  • Liv Moore: I can't help it. I'm filled to the brim with insight.
  • Ravi Chakrabarti: Oh, that's what you're filled with. Just find out if she's dating anyone, okay?
  • Liv Moore: I live to enable.


  • Ravi Chakrabarti: Do you think this is how Oppenheimer felt staring down at the a-bomb?
  • Liv Moore: Like a drama queen? Or are you talking about the need for self-aggrandizement?


  • Liv Moore: Major doesn't get dumped. There are literally two reasons to end a relationship with Major: zombieism and full-on death.


  • Peyton Charles: I have a feeling people who are friends with social workers don't ask this question a lot, but who were you fighting with this week?
  • Major Lilywhite: Sons of Anarchy, I think.
