- Ravi Chakrabarti: Liv. You ate the girl's temporal lobe. Going to the police with her potential murderer is the least you can do.
- Olivia Moore: It's probably wrong that every time I see a dead body I think, "What the hell am I doing with my life. I didn't map out and color code a 10-yaer plan for this. This is not me going confidently in the direction of my dreams. I used to have ambition. I used to be passionate, inspired... alive. Now, I'm mostly just hungry. And, and a zombie. So, there's that.
- Clive Babineaux: Zombies! I would be a dangerous man after the zombies came. I wouldn't be making any rookie mistakes. Is that a scratch on my grandmother? Blam! Hasta le vista, Mee-Ma.
- Ravi Chakrabarti: So, in the five months you've been here, what's the weirdest thing you've seen?
- Olivia Moore: You drinking cereal milk over a corpse.
- Ravi Chakrabarti: I like that you always keep it under 15 syllables. It gives us good rhythm.
- Eva Moore: Do you have any idea how many women would kill to be with a man like this?
- Major Lilywhite: Exactly four. Yeah, I've met 'em. Quality women. Yeah, I don't know who they plan on killing or why they think that's my thing but they're super-hot and ready for murder.
- Olivia Moore: I can't refuse to be dead. I can't eat a ham sandwich and feel like a sated, normal human being. I can't have sex or tell the people I love what's going on with me. But I can choose not to have a drawer full of fake eyeballs and strangers' tchotchkes. I can choose to be a decent person. I can choose to help find justice for a fellow dead girl.
- Ravi Chakrabarti: You have to see this anterior rectus sheath contusion. It looks exactly like the Virgin Mary holding a Les Paul. It would be wrong of me to Instagram that.
- Olivia Moore: Yes, it would.
- Clive Babineaux: See, that's what I'm talking about. That whole "whatever" vibe? I mean, what's with that?
- Olivia Moore: Why are you so concerned with my vibe?
- Clive Babineaux: I find it perplexing.
- Olivia Moore: I'm standing in a hallway waiting to smell a call girl. This is vibe appropriate.
- Olivia Moore: So "You are what you eat," isn't just a bitchy thing my mother says about fat people.
- Ravi Chakrabarti: Thought I had a psychic sidekick. I was working on a bit... Cagney and Pasty.
- Olivia Moore: Life's short and then you die. And then... then you have make some decisions. You can skulk around, lamenting all that you've lost, trying to keep yourself numb and isolated. Or you can embrace who you are.
- Clive Babineaux: Stay here.
- Olivia Moore: What else am I gonna do? Subdue him with a good verbal flogging?
- Ravi Chakrabarti: Did you find anything in the dumpster that can help us? Please say vomit.
