Kayla’s Boss: You have to adopt the mentality of an Irish street cop. The world is a bad place. People are lazy morons. Minorities are criminals. Sex is sick, but interesting. Ask yourself, “What would scare my grandmother, or pi** off my grandfather?” And that’s a Fox story.
Kayla Pospisil: Oh, it makes so much sense.
[on Fox & Friends]
Brian Kilmeade: Woman are everywhere. We’re letting them play golf and tennis now.
[as they watch one of their Fox & Friends shows]
Gretchen Carlson: [jokingly] HRs on the phone, because you called me a skirt.
Brian Kilmeade: Yeah, I got to read that manual again.
Gretchen Carlson: The attitude off camera was even worse. “You’re a man hater. Learn to get along with the boys. You’re sexy, but you’re too much work.” I have a whole list.
Nancy Erika Smith: Will other women come forward?
Gretchen Carlson: Someone has to speak up. Someone has to get mad.
[on the her show The Kelly File]
Megyn Kelly: You may have heard, there was a dust up, involving yours truly, and presidential contender, Donald Trump.
[as they are watching the news]
Donald Trump: There was blood coming out of her eyes. Blood coming out of her wherever.
Lily: Oh, my God.
Megyn Kelly: Did he just accuse me of anger menstruating?
Megyn Kelly: Wait, am I going to be the story?
Lily, Edie: No.
Megyn Kelly: I’m going to be the story?
Lily, Eddie: No.
Roger Ailes: [to Megyn] Nobody stops watching because of a conflict. They stop watching when there isn’t one.
Megyn Kelly: You do understand, I have to be above this right?
Douglas Brunt: You know, the entire country is talking about your period right now.
Kayla Pospisil: I want to convince you that I belong on air, Mr. Ailes. I think I’d be freaking phenomenal on your network.
Roger Ailes: I could pluck you out and move you to the front of the line. But I need to know that you’re loyal. I need you to find a way to prove it.
Edie: [to Megyn] You know why Roger’s got that door blocking his office.
Fox News Anchor: Fox News star, Gretchen Carlson, dropped a major bombshell today.
Kayla Pospisil: What is she doing?
Roger Ailes: This could kill Fox News.
Jeanine Pirro: We need everyone on Team Roger.
[throws Team Roger t-shirts to the employees]
Kimberly Guilfoyle: Get it on. Put it on.
Kayla Pospisil: These are the end times.
Jeanine Pirro: [to Kayla] Sweetheart, this is an island of safety and truth.
[turning to Megyn and Kayla during their tense elevator ride]
Gretchen Carlson: Hot in here.
[the elevator stops, Gretchen and Kayla get out as Megyn looks at them walking away]
[over the phone]
Megyn Kelly: Ready to go to war?
Gretchen Carlson: Oh, yeah.
