Olivia: You get any sleep?
Katriona: Yeah, a solid 20. It's all you need.

Katriona: Thanks for the heads-up, Lakira. Somebody helping you out?
Lakira: An angel with wings.
Katriona: I thought he was a vulture.
Lakira: You know what my moms used to say?
Katriona: No. Why don't you tell me?
Lakira: She said there's two types of people in this world. The ones that turn gold into garbage and the ones that turn garbage into gold.
Katriona: Is that what you think you did?
Lakira: She's pretty, isn't she? I got it for my moms. I got rent money for her too. Maybe she'll finally let me move back home. Turning vultures into angels, Kit Kat. You know me.
