Episode 1.01: AKA Ladies Night

Spoken by Jessica Jones

"The big part of the job is looking for the worst in people. Turns out I excel at that. Clients hire me to find dirt. And I find it, which shouldn't surprise them, but it does."
―Jessica Jones[src]
"In my line of work, you gotta know when to walk away. But some cases just won't let you go."

―Jessica Jones researching Hope Shlottman[src]
"It's people like you that give people like you a bad name."
―Jessica Jones to Gregory Spheeris[src]
"Hope's going overboard to make her boyfriend happy. She's either an idiot in love, or she's being conned. Which amount to pretty much the same thing."
―Jessica Jones[src]
"Knowing it's real means you gotta make a decision. One, keep denying it. Or two... do something about it."
―Jessica Jones[src]

"This is my apartment."
―Jessica Jones and Malcolm Ducasse[src]
"If you even touch me, I'll tell the world about you. There'll be nowhere to hide."
"Do I look like I'm hiding? No. You wanna know why? Because no one wants to know. They want to feel safe. They'd rather call you crazy than admit that I can lift this car, or that I can melt your insides with my laser eyes... which won't leave a trace."
Gregory Spheeris and Jessica Jones[src]
"Hard day at the office?"
"They're all hard."

"That quack that had me reciting street names from back home?"
"A proven method for managing PTSD."
"Two hundred bucks for "Birch Street, Cobalt Lane, Bullshit Drive.""
―Jessica Jones and Trish Walker[src]

"Oh come on, I meant lawyers in general."
"Scumbag henchmen for corporate America."
"Well..."
"We just hired a full-time investigator."
"Whoever he is, he's not as good as me."
"Hence me having offered you the job, which you rejected."
"Wasn't personal, I just prefer a freelance; no ties."
"So you said - with an impressive string of expletives."
"Okay, is being drunk an excuse?"
"You know, it's really about professionalism. You are erratic and you are volatile..."
"Effective."
Jessica Jones and Jeri Hogarth[src]

Episode 1.02: AKA Crush Syndrome

Spoken by Jessica Jones

"Every corner I turn, I don't know what's on the other side. I don't know who's on the other side. It could be the cabbie who's gonna drive me into the East River, okay? It could be the FedEx woman. It could be a talk show host who was my best friend."

Hope Shlottman and Jessica Jones[src]
"My brother is all alone now. He's 12."
"It's not your fault."
"I know. It's yours. He said you left him there to die. You should have stayed to make sure."
"So he's mad. He wants to make me suffer."
"Mmm-hmm. Like he suffered."
Hope Shlottman and Jessica Jones[src]
"You should kill yourself."
"Probably. But I'm the only one that knows you're innocent."
Hope Shlottman and Jessica Jones[src]
"So now what? With Kilgrave?"
"That accident didn't kill him, but he took a hit. I find his weakness, I find him."

"Or he controls you again."
"I'll die before I let that happen."

Trish Walker and Jessica Jones[src]

Dialogue

"Everyone keeps saying that. It must be a conspiracy."
Jeri Hogarth and Jessica Jones[src]

"We're starting a band. I told them to keep in touch. Talk."
"You starting a support group? Will you be participating?"

"Yes, you are a paragon of mental health."
Jeri Hogarth and Jessica Jones[src]
"Kilgrave wanted a leather jacket, live cello music, and the flattering smile of a pretty girl. What a waste. He could solve so many problems with his gift."
"Gift?"
"I just meant if...If he was on our side."
"What side would that be? The side that uses people? Treats them like animals? Just to throw them away like they're garbage? The side that rips your life apart and destroys you from the inside out? Whose side exactly would that be?"
Jeri Hogarth and Jessica Jones[src]
"Get her on the plastic."
"How?"

"You shoot at me, I'll pull the bullet out of my ruined jacket and shove it up your ass with my pinky finger, and who do you think that's gonna hurt more?"
Audrey Eastman, Carlo Eastman and Jessica Jones[src]
"Look, you're obviously pissed off about something, but I'm pretty sure for the first time this has nothing to do with Kilgrave, he's smarter than you two."
"Kilgrave? Who's Kilgrave? Is he another one of you people? How many more are there like you?"
"How many more what, private eyes?"
""Gifted". Stupid word. It's like calling someone "special". You're not "special", you're retarded. You're not "gifted", you're a freak."
"What have we, or the mentally challenged, ever done to you?"
"You "Saved the City." That's what the newspapers said: "You were heroes.""
"Not me."
""The city was saved"...But I was there. I saw what really happened...I saw my mother crushed to death under a building that you people destroyed."
"In the incident?"
"I was trying to pull my mother out from the rubble, watching her bleed to death... While all around me, you people were raining down hell!"
"So go after the big green guy, or the flag waver, I wasn't even there!"
"Consider it a preventative measure for next time!"
Jessica Jones and Audrey Eastman[src]
"You think you're the only ones who've lost people? You think you're the only ones with pain? You think you can take your shit and dump it on me? You don't get to do that! So you take your goddamn pain and you live with it, assholes! You lost your parents? Welcome to the goddamn club! I lost mine in some random accident! Do you see me trying to kill every shitty driver? No! Because I don't work my shit out on other people! So keep your goddamn feelings to YOURSELF!...Ninety-nine. You wanted to know how many of us there are? The last time I counted, I had ninety-nine Gifted friends. In this borough alone. And now, every single one of them is going to know about the shit you tried to pull...And they hate attempted murder, they really do. The cops hate it too, you know, because it's against the law."
"Please don't kill us. We're gonna leave you alone."
"There's only one thing that you can do to save yourselves."
"What?"
"Disappear. Nobody, especially me, ever hears from you again. Me and my friends will stop by tomorrow to make sure you heard me."
"I want a divorce."
Jessica Jones, Carlo Eastman and Audrey Eastman[src]

Appalling sense of fashion, but that can be remedied. And underneath it all, the power. Just like me. Though not quite as good, of course. Tell me, did you enjoy beating those thugs?"

"Because I helped someone. I made a difference."
"Well, how noble. What's your name?"
"Jones. Jessica Jones."
