Edward: "What heretofore unmentioned fact makes you think Haverstock will deal with me?"
Julian: "You interned for him all through law school."
Edward: "Oh, right. Right. Okay, sure."
JUST RIGHT OUT IN PUBLIC
Joanna: "Hey, be discreet. I'm undercover here."
Will: "Yeah, whatever. I lost Ben Preswick in a seriously botched raid on his Lower East Side hideaway and I want to yell at you about it."
Joanna: "Why? He's gone for now. Let me take another run at Julian."
Will: "You mean go on another date?"
Joanna: "Bitch, I am a grown-ass adult woman."
Undercutting her point, Joanna takes his pretzel and bounces, as though pretzel-stealing were feminism and not what you do to your best friend's hot older brother. What if, instead of acting adorable and forgiving his boorish unprofessionalism, you explained to him how offensive and belittling his behavior is?
Julian: "Remember when I maliciously teased you about that girl I fucked in high school? Man, you're easy to piss off."
Joanna: "I prefer to think of my gross relationships with men as more of a give-and-take than they really are. Let's do it all again! Tonight!"
Julian: "Did you just ask me out on another date? I must really be something."
Joanna: "That you are, Julian Bowers. Be sure and bring that ring you wore to punch your dead pregnant sister in the face."
Mia tosses peanut M&Ms into her giant bowl of popcorn, because she lives the life most toddlers dream of. When Robert appears and sadly reminds her about the Style section interview, her face falls. It seems like a convincing lie to Robert, but is in fact legitimate: She knew she forgot something, but not what it was. And then she starts lying anyway so it doesn't really matter, but it was a neat Mia moment: The tears, the apology -- they're all real. It's just the words that are a lie, which makes the whole thing a lie.
Robert: "Nice try. Joanna said you'd say you forgot..."
Mia: "Yeah, because I actually did!"
Robert: "...But Rayburn the Homicidal Groundskeeper says you left school at lunch, on the back of a motorcycle."
Mia: "It's not like I've ever lied to you before. That was sarcasm, by the way."
Robert: "What is this degenerate's name?"
