Moira Quote #438
Moira: Though it's possible this outing might serve you both well. I'm sure you're not aware of this but, our Alexis is unfortunately suffering a bit of a dry spell. Exacerbated by this situation with the former lover, Ted, and his new girlfriend, Harriet?
Twyla: You mean Heather?
Moira: I believe it's Heather.
Twyla: Yeah, um, Ted and Heather have been together for, hm, a while now. They started dating when Alexis was still working at the vet's office. She says it doesn't bother her, but sometimes I wonder.
Moira: Always the closed book, our Alexis. Bless her soul.
Twyla: I've always found her to be pretty open about things.
Moira: A closed book that falls open the second you take it off the shelf. That's enough gossip for today, Twyla. No, I'm not comfortable discussing the intimate details of Alexis' private life, with her not present.
Twyla: Oh, I wasn't gossiping, it was just that you brought it up. So I just wanted to clarify that it was...
Moira: Gossip is the devil's telephone. Best to just hang up.
Quote from David
David: I'm sorry that I just know what looks correct. And this situation is not correct! Toilet plungers on display at the front of a store, is incorrect! Breath mints where the lip balms should be. Not correct! Not correct. These mountaineering shoes that my boyfriend is wearing, looking like Oprah on a Thanksgiving Day hike, incorrect.
Patrick: I'm sorry, what did you just say?
David: I said the breath mints need to move.
Patrick: I think it was something about your boyfriend's shoes?
David: Um. I don't remember saying that.
Stevie: Yeah, no, that's what I heard.
Patrick: Well hey, my boyfriend doesn't like the shoes, I could, I could take the shoes off.
David: I mean, or not. I don't remember saying it. So, you can do whatever you'd like.
Quote from David
Patrick: Makes me think that we should be taking more products from the back and actually putting them out there.
David: Mmm-hmm. Okay. No, no, no, no, no. No! No! Fine, I'm terrible at compromise! There, I said it. Like Beyonce, I excel as a solo artist, and I was also dressed by my mother well into my teens, okay?
Stevie: Let it out David, let it out.
Quote from Patrick
Patrick: You know, David, one of the fundamental pillars of any successful business person is their ability to compromise.
Stevie: Hm, I have to agree with Patrick on this one.
David: I don't think there's anything you have to do, and I compromise all the time. [Stevie and Patrick laugh] What?
Stevie: Nothing, I just um, just remembering all those times that you compromised.
Patrick: I was just thinking about the same thing, because there- There's so many to think through.
