Season 1 
A Tribe Is Born [1.1] 
- Michael: Claudia Joy Holden, after seventeen years of marriage my heart still skips a beat every time I look at you.
- Claudia Joy: Michael James Holden, after seventeen years of marriage I can't believe that tired old line of yours still works.
- Trevor: Roxy, you work two jobs right? And you got two kids from two different men. Now, I know I only met you four days ago, but I think you're my soulmate!
- Pamela: Sit next to the Anti-Christ, going to Hell by association.
- Roxy: Oh, I reckon I got you beat on the Hell front.
- Pamela: Last week I was a drug dealer. This week I'm carrying the chaplain's kids. You think you can top that?
- Roxy: I can try. My kids aren't my husbands. I was married to the first one's daddy till he sucker-punched me. The second one was just a friend who came over to "comfort" me one night. I've known Trevor, my husband, for all of 17 days now. How'd I do.
- Pamela: I'm impressed.
- Pamela: [In labor] Vodka and a hammer. I need vodka and a hammer!
- Pamela: [Seeing the look on Roland's face as she gives birth] You having a good time?
- Roland: Let's just say childbirth is disgusting as it is miraculous.
[ The first baby comes out and Denise hand him to Roland everyone looks at him, Roland looks up ] Roland: it wasn't me
After Birth [1.2] 
- Roxy: Give me everything you've got baby doll or you're gonna be looking at me from the floor.
The Art of Separation [1.3] 
- [Jeremy knocks at Claudia Joy's door, Amanda opens it]
- Amanda: Look everybody, it's Jeremy Sherwood -- How are you?
- Jeremy: Great -- Uh -- Amanda, you look great!
- Amanda: So do you.
- Jeremy: So, when did you get home?
- Amanda: About 90 minutes after I got arrested.
- Jeremy: Arrested?
- Amanda: I take it you haven't been watching the news?
- Jeremy: I hate that show, it's too depressing.
- [At the donation gathering, at the podium]
- Pamela: Hey -- It's me, Pamela Moran. I just want to let you all know, I made fifty grand carrying those kids. That's right, I was a paid surrogate. So, they're not my babies, they're not in the hospital, they're not dead and I lied to everyone. So -- Have at it!
- Trevor: Roxy, I was adopted, but not until I was 7. Until then it was just foster care. I don't want to adopt your boys because I'm afraid I'm going to die -- I want to adopt them because I want them to really know what it's like to have someone really want them. It's like I said, I'm coming home.
One of Our Own [1.4] 
Independence Day [1.5] 
- Pamela: Marilyn is having an affair, and you waited until now to tell me?
- Roxy: Well, excuse me, but I worked until midnight last night.
- Pamela: Well, my phone works twenty-four hours a day! And so does my front door!
Who We Are [1.6] 
- Roxy: It's hotter than the hinges on the gates of Hell.
Hail and Farewell [1.7] 
Only the Lonely [1.8] 
- Roxy: My favorite designer is the Goodwill.
Nobody's Perfect [1.9] 
- Trevor: I jump to conclusions. I'm a terrible cook, I forget names and I'm clumsy, hence the knee. I can be impulsive and sometimes a little bit too sensitive.
- Roxy: I can be jealous, but I'm working on it. I can be outspoken, but I'm really not working on that. I haven't read many books, not really the best speller. I don't want any more kids, at least not now, but I'm with you. I love to practice.
Dirty Laundry [1.10] 
- [Roxy has announced that she and Trevor finally went a night without having sex]
- Claudia Joy: I'm impressed.
- Pamela: I'm jealous.
- Denise: I'm speechless.
- [all girls turn to Roland]
- Roland: I'm not here. Please leave a message.
- Pamela: Hey, you guys, Claudia Joy is doing okay, huh? You've gotta admire how she's been handling things, especially with Mrs. Lenore Baker trying to take her down like that.
- Roxy: Do you really think she would use what happened against Claudia Joy like that?
- Pamela: That's how it works around here sometimes.
- Roxy: Well, what do we do?
- Denise: We stick together. We support Claudia Joy, no matter what.
- Roxy: We deep fry Lenore Baker and serve her up with a side of hush puppies!
- Roxy: Fastest way to a man's zipper; tight jeans, new haircut.
Truth and Consequences [1.11] 
- Pamela: [on the air describing her new call-in show] Ok, uh, so much for announcements. Now for a little call-in segment that I'm calling 'Have At It With Pamela Moran.' Where we talk about us – the Army Wives – and what we go through. Like how it feels to be a single mom even when you're married. Or, better yet, what it's like to be the mistress 'cause the Army is the wife and sometimes that bitch gets all the attention! You know, they say, 'Mission First. People Always.' But that's crap. And what the hell does that mean, anyway? Because the Army comes first - period. And we deal with it or we move on. And it doesn't matter if your spouse wears sergeant's stripes, or, or colonel's eagle. Because worrying about your soldier at wartime feels exactly the same. So, forget rank, 'cause people are just people. And uh, speaking of which - I know we all like to gossip, but come on folks, can we just stop all the lies and innuendos about a certain colonel's wife. I mean, what the hell folks! Did we all lose direction to the high road, or what?
- Victoria Grayson: [to Claudia Joy] Getting older is like being punished for a crime you didn't commit.
- [After Roxy and Pamela are confronted by Marilyn about Pamela having Scott over for Pizza]
- Roxy: So, you still think having your own microphone to tell the world off is a bad thing?
Rules of Engagement [1.12] 
- [In response to a caller on her radio show asking about what to expect when her husband comes home from war]
- Pamela: My man just came back and got a heroes welcome, lemme tell ya he knows how to shoot off the fireworks, we're talking 21-gun salute, so stay hydrated.
- Trevor: Rox, you are one of the smartest people I know...you could do anything.
- Roxy: You know the difference between a lawyer and an accountant? An accountant knows he's boring. [kisses Trevor] I'm happy where I am right now.
Goodbye Stranger [1.13] 
- Roxy: Do you remember the trek from Tuscaloosa?
- Trevor: [glancing at the boys] How could I forget? TJ threw up on me twice, Finn peed on me, and you broke the dial fighting over the radio station.
- Roxy: Good times.
- Trevor: [smiling] Hmmm...good times.
- Finn: [standing beside TJ as Trevor says good bye to the boys] Please stay.
- Trevor: [to Ari and Ilan] Well, you know why I have to go. But I'm gonna come back as soon as I can, and when I get home, I'm gonna tell you guys stories about everything I've seen. So, be brave for me, okay? Take care of your Mom, she's gonna need it. Come here. [kneels to hug both boys, and picks up his rucksack to leave, as Roxy tries not to cry]
- [TJ stands still, still staring at Trevor]
- Trevor: What's the matter, buddy?
- TJ: It's just that we've never had a Daddy before.
- Trevor: [bending to look TJ straight in the eyes] I love you.
- Claudia Joy: [to Betty] When is your surgery?
- Roxy: She's not having it.
- Claudia Joy: [concerned] Why not?
- Roxy: She's short three grand. I keep telling her to sell the Hump Bar, but she won't.
- Betty: This place has been truer to me than any man I've ever been with, Roxy. I can't sell it. It's better we just go out together.
- Claudia Joy: There has to be something we can do.
- Roland: Yeah.
- Betty: [shrugging] Forget it. I mean, who needs surgery? It's like putting lipstick on a pig.
- Pamela: [over the air on her show, 'Have At It'] Ok, so in case you were wondering why it's been so busy on Fort Marshall today, it's because we've gone to FP Con Alpha Plus, and we know 'Alpha' relates to the global threat of terrorism. But...hell, we've been to Alpha Plus here before. We've bought the gas masks, we've stocked up on bottled water. But, there's one thing we can never be prepared for, and that's the fear. How do we handle the fear? My son Lucas once asked me if the 'bad guys' were going to blow us up. How do you answer that? How do you explain terrorism to your kid? How do you explain that at any time, any place, someone could just decide to take us all out? And that's why terrorism works, because we can't explain it, we can't predict it, it can happen any time, anywhere, by anyone. So, all we can do is trust that the military has our backs, and then we let it go. Because the only way to stop the fear is by living. Just living, being with your family, your friends, your community. Look, there is nothing we can do about it - except to seize the day. We live while we can, laugh while we can, love while we can. And that, my friends, is how we beat terrorism. So, 'Have At It.'
- Claudia Joy: UVA doesn't know how lucky they are.
- Amanda: [her head on her mother's shoulder] Why?
- Claudia Joy: Why? Because they're getting the best Political Science major they'll ever have.
- Amanda: Mom, don't exaggerate.
- Claudia Joy: I'm not. I'm serious. I can see the woman you're going to be. You haven't caught sight of her yet, but she's just around the corner. And I'm damn glad that test was negative.
Season 2 
Would You Know My Name [2.1] 
- Amanda: Show me the mother, and I'll show you the child.
- Roxy: [opening her front door] Weren't you just here awhile ago?
- Pamela: I know. But this time I brought a medical professional.
- Denise: [sliding a bottle of wine out of a paper bag as she walks through the door] This won't cure anything, but it just might make the waiting easier.
- Roxy: I doubt it.
- Pamela: Well, it couldn't hurt to try.
- Roxy: [laughs as she walks toward the kitchen] Look at the two of you. It feels like I'm on the wrong end of an intervention.
- Pamela: [Intro radio voiceover] This is Pamela Moran. I realize that this isn't my normal radio slot, but normal isn't a word that applies much anymore. Not around here. I don't know how to gently lead up to something like this, so I'm just going to say it. I just found out that someone very near to me died. As you all know, four days ago there was a bombing at the Hump Bar, and the city is still not back to normal. People are trying to understand how something so terrible could have happened here. The destruction, debris, both physical and emotional have taken a heavy toll, though the Army was quick to respond. I too was one of those who was glued to my television. It was as if I only listened to the news reports long enough, and watched the images enough times, that somehow it would all change. On that first day that we were hungering for information, my son came up to me and asked me if I could take him to the beach. Our adult world is falling apart, but in my child's world, he just wanted to go to the beach he said he'd found this secret place where the gold starfish are, and he wanted to show it to me. But no I couldn't pull myself away. I just sat there in front of the television hypnotized by it all. People who aren't in the military don't understand the unique bonds that are forged so quickly on an army post. Maybe it's because we move so much. You know when you rarely spend two or three years in one place, it forces you to get to the heart of things. That's why when one of these people who we've come to care about like they're our own family slips away, leaves us forever, the loss is almost unbearable.
- Pamela: [Continued radio voiceover] The mind plays tricks on us at times like this. It has to. We need it to. It's how we're able to power on and do what needs to be done. Even something as mundane as doing the dishes that are piling up in the sink, or going out, getting up and doing what needs to be done for your loved ones. The future doesn't stop. We all search for strength on that first day or two. I did. But whether what I found was true strength or some part of our DNA that makes us want to reach out and help, I don't know. Times like this we question our own strength, our ability to hang on and not crumble. It's one of the things I admire most about the army wives I've met. Must be a military thing- this capacity to press on despite the obstacles, to see a mission through to its completion. No matter what happens that makes us question the world we live in, life goes on, as cliché as that sounds. One generation passes the baton to the next generation and the cycle of life continues. Regeneration- life renewed. What is it that the poets keep trying to hammer into our heads? Winter becomes spring, night becomes day, as one wave crashes onto the shore and disappears, another one appears behind it, and another and another. I guess we humans just plain want to stick around. The ride must be worth the price of admission. And it's not in us to give up hope, even when any reason for hope has dwindled to almost nothing. This communal spirit, this crazy insistence that we all are connected in each other's caretaker, it keeps us from sinking into despair, or sliding into the abyss. What is it about the human touch- holding a loved one close and feeling their warmth, their heartbeat. I mean this is the Army and frequently our loved ones are far away. But their warmth doesn't have to be. At times it feels totally random. It's roll of the dice on who lives and who dies. At some point words fail us and we're left with silence. Silence and time. I read something once, to live in hears you leave behind, is not to die. I don't know what each of you is going to do today, but now is the time to tell those you love, that you love them. Like we loved Amanda and she lives in our hearts still, and will never be forgotten. Me, I think I'm going to pick up my kids up and take that ride down to the ocean like they wanted. The water's beautiful this time of the year. Besides, they know where the gold starfish are.
- Pamela: [to Denise, standing by the comatose Betty] I'm gonna stay. Maybe I'll tell Betty how Roxy dyed her 'netherlands' in a pink heart before Trevor left.
