Season 2, Episode 7 - Aired February 16, 2016
After a rumour spreads that Moira is running for town council, Johnny considers throwing his hat into the ring. Meanwhile, Alexis struggles being alone, while David joins Stevie at a bar.
Quote from Alexis
Alexis: I'm serious, David, I'm not coming. Have fun, though. Oh, and in case you wake up in a chair with your hands duct taped together, you can snap the duct tape by just raising your hands over your head, and then bringing them down really hard.
Quote from Moira
Twyla: You running for town council!
Moira: What, excuse me?
Johnny: You're running for town council?
Moira: No, I'm not running for town council.
Twyla: Oh, I must've misheard. Everyone was talking about you standing up to council last week, so I just assumed
Moira: Never assume, dear, it makes an ass out of both of us.
Quote from David
David: Hmm. On a scale of one to I'm-gonna-get-beat-up by-an-angry-local, where do we see this look fall?
Alexis: Um, like, easy six.
Quote from Moira
Johnny: It's not that absurd an idea, Moira. You know, being on town council might give you an outlet to channel all that "passion" you have for this town.
Moira: I'd sooner poke my eyes out with hat pins.
Johnny: Well, that's subtle.
Quote from Johnny
Twyla: Well, I think you would make a great councillor.
Johnny: Well, the right person might be able to get a lot done around here.
Moira: The right person, John, wouldn't be caught dead in this, they'd be running somewhere a little more-
Moira: Okay, maybe I should say somewhere less-
Twyla: Less what?
Moira: What's the word I'm trying to think of?
Johnny: Well, let's hope we don't find it, okay?
Quote from Bob
Johnny: Bob, now that Ray's stepped down from council, I gather his seat is up for grabs?
Bob: "His seat is up for grabs?" I could say something pretty inappropriate right now.
Johnny: Well, I'm hoping you don't.
Bob: No, but I could, that's a real set up.
Quote from Twyla
Alexis: I was thinking we could have a little ladies' night at my place.
Twyla: Just the two of us?
Alexis: Yeah! Come by around eight.
Twyla: I'm working tonight, but maybe this weekend? Or are you with Mutt on weekends?
Alexis: Um no, because we broke up.
Twyla: I'm sorry to hear that. Although, part of me is a little relieved. Since you did tell me to break up with him, and then you dated him...
Alexis: That's so sweet of you, but I'm gonna be fine.
Quote from Roland
Johnny: Well, I just stopped by to pick up a nomination form for town council.
Roland: You know, I gotta hand it to you. Um, it takes a brave man to face defeat yet again, when his ego is so battered and bruised.
Johnny: Well, I don't plan on losing, but thank you for the vote of confidence.
Roland: Johnny, nobody plans on losing. But with all due respect, this is a kind of a different playing field for you.
Johnny: Roland, I ran the second largest retail video chain in North America, so...
Roland: Well, that's good to hear, so you're used to coming in second, huh?
Johnny: Could I get a nomination form, please?!
Roland: Look I'm just trying to help you out here, okay? I've been in politics for 18 years, and let me tell you something, pal, it ain't a cakewalk, okay?! Say goodbye to your privacy. You walk into a restaurant, everybody's gonna know who you are!
Johnny: Well, everyone knows everyone here, because there's only one restaurant.
Roland: I mean, just taking your boy for ice cream cone can turn into a media circus.
Johnny: Well, your son is 30, and you never see him.
Quote from Moira
Moira: I'm sorry, which rumour are you talking about?
Johnny: The one about me running for council.
Moira: No, that was about me, John. You were with me when Twyla said that. If this continues, I'll have to call a neurologist.
Quote from Stevie
Alexis: Is it hard for you?
Stevie: Uh, is what hard for me?
Alexis: Like, being by yourself here? Like, you're just totally okay to sit here all day by yourself?
Stevie: That's why I took the job.
Alexis: Mmm-hmm. Okay. And while you're here, by yourself, you never get this almost uncontrollable urge to talk to people, or be complimented, or..?
Stevie: I know everyone in this town, so for the most part, I would rather be here by myself than engage in meaningless conversation with people I don't care about.
Alexis: Totally. Mm-hmm. And why is that?
Stevie: Because I enjoy my own company more.
Alexis: Of course. Of course.
