Good Girls: Beth’s 10 Best Quotes
In Good girls, Beth Boland is still the mastermind behind the many crimes she, her younger sister and her best friend commit. Initially, the mother of four only commits crimes to get enough money to wipe out the financial chaos caused by her husband, but she quickly becomes addicted to the thrill that comes with breaking the law.
Beth’s new life has its drawbacks, and there is still one major issue for her to work out. It’s while standing there thinking that she makes some of the best points of the series. Some of Beth’s other quotes are inspired by her love for her friend and sister as well as a belief that she always does the right thing.
“It’s a kidney, not a refrigerator.”
While discussing ways to help Ruby pay for her daughter’s surgery, Annie asks if funding is an option. Her sister closes her in the perfect way.
Beth is the undisputed queen of burns and whenever she’s not in a good mood, even her sister ends up as a victim. Annie’s innocent question and Beth’s answer are both hilarious. Thanks to her naivety, most things in life are foreign to Annie. As for Beth, she’s one of the smartest characters in Good girls, and she never understands why others don’t have the knowledge she has.
“That little woman of yours who lived to cook you dinner has left the building, and she’s not coming back.”
At the start of the series, a worried Dean asks to know about Beth’s secret life. Beth, on the other hand, doesn’t think she owes him an explanation, especially since he’s the one who got her into this mess.
Beth is hardly kidding when she informs Dean that she killed and buried the submissive part of her. He is seen cooking his own dinner in the coming seasons and he only has to blame himself for losing some privileges. He has no idea how to get his family out of the hole he dug so Beth has to. Unfortunately for Dean, Beth enjoys problem solving too much that she no longer considers it a priority.
“What makes the most sense is couples therapy, not robbery.”
Ruby gets angry when Stan asks her to pay her back the money she took from some of their savings. To hurt him, she offers to rob the strip club where he works. Beth is shocked by the suggestion and advises couples therapy instead.
Ruby and Stan have always been two of the most reasonable people on the show, but when their marriage begins to fall apart, they both become reckless. Ruby is the reason Stan lost his job as a police officer and his suggestion to do something else that could hurt him even more is weird. Luckily, she has a friend like Beth who brings her back to the freeway when she swerves.
“I’m a mother of four, so I’m used to it.”
Rio could be one of the best male characters in Good girls, but her habit of giving Beth jobs overnight is frowned upon by viewers and the character herself. One morning, he pretends to be sympathetic when he realizes how exhausted she is, but she refuses to laugh at him.
Rio-Beth exchanges never fail to entertain, in large part because of Beth’s lines. Having a large family means Beth rarely has time to rest. As her children are young, they always need help and she has to come out on top as a parent. As a result, her body adapted to the constant feeling of fatigue.
“It doesn’t matter what we’ve done. We’re the good guys. He’s the criminal here.”
Rio is usually a topic in any discussion the ladies have. On one occasion, they wonder if they all deserve to go to jail, including him. Beth disagrees. According to her, only Rio belongs behind bars.
In this quote, Beth attempts to classify evil into good-bad and bad-evil. She believes that the kind of harm Rio does is the kind someone deserves to go to jail for. After all, he chose to be a criminal. As for the trio, it was circumstances that made them delinquent. Unfortunately for Beth, the justice system does not share her opinion.
“No boy is going to separate us.”
Beth’s husband Dean tolerates her criminal lifestyle, but he’s never happy with it. Neither does Stan, who confronts Beth and orders her to leave his wife Ruby alone. However, Beth has no intention of breaking up the gang just because the spouses are grieving.
Independence and equality are mentioned frequently in the NBC crime drama. The statement that the trio will not bow to the will of the men not only reaffirms the aforementioned themes but also gives them the green light to have new entries added to their long list of crimes. They are right to stay together as their friendship has stood the test of time. The men in their lives came much later.
“Like I said, I’ll take care of it.”
Rio demands that Beth kill Mary Pat when she learns that the member of the Single Shopper Initiative is blackmailing the trio for $ 10,000 each month. He continues to stress the importance of bringing out the rotten eggs, but Beth shuts him down.
Two of Beth’s best traits are her courage and confidence. She always defends herself, even when she has a gun to her temple. She’s not the type to sit down and be told what to do, even when she’s a dangerous gangbanger. Regarding Mary Pat’s problem, she shares Rio’s concerns but has no idea how she is going to handle the problem. Nonetheless, she knows she will get away with it in her own way.
“It feels good to be really good at something.”
When confronted with Dean over whether she will ever give up on her criminal adventures, Beth admits that she probably won’t. She’s finally found something she’s really good at.
Beth’s honesty is why she’s one of the nicest Good girls characters. For a long time, Beth has convinced herself that she is only stuck in the world of crime because of her family’s financial problems and because Rio will not let her go. In fact, planning heists, printing counterfeit money and arranging hits gives him an adrenaline rush. She’s already broken up and reversing the process isn’t something she wants to do.
“Because a hit man is going to ask me for a friend?” “
Beth and Annie are concerned when Mr. Fitzpatrick, the hitman the former hired to kill Rio, goes missing. Annie asks Beth if she’s been looking for her on Facebook, and Beth can’t help but laugh.
Annie rarely comes up with the best ideas, but she makes a logical point about this particular situation. Even though Beth finds Annie’s words funny, she maintains that none of them know how hitmen communicate, so reaching out on Facebook isn’t in the realm of the possible. They’re suburban moms, after all, so if they’re going to look for Mr. Fitzpatrick, they might as well be scouring social media platforms.
“I’m the banker, B —-!”
One of the jobs Mick gives Beth is to collect money from everyone who owes the gang. He gives her a gun and a bag. Her instructions are clear: she must tell each of them that she is “the banker”, and they will know what to do. While collecting, Beth enjoys the mission so much that she adds “b —-” every time she identifies herself.
It’s yet another moment that shows Beth was made for this life. No matter how hard she tries to quit, she can never really do it. Most of all, Beth loves being in a position where she can give orders, hence the reason this mission makes her so horny. Watching business owners act submissively to her is refreshing, as she is used to only receiving such treatment from her subordinates at the car wash.
