What was your favorite Ruth moment in Ozark?


  1. The “I don’t know shit about fuck” line was funny and very Ruth-y…and then you realize she said it because her father said it to her when she made mistakes, and it becomes heartbreaking.

  2. “I’m not leavin’ without gainful motherFUCKin’ employment”… She said it with such an attitude, I instantly fell in love with her character

  3. My favorite moment was when she came out of the trailer taking charge over her dad’s abuse to her cousins with the shotgun. She rocked it.

    I also loved her devotion to Wyatt shown with sternness and tenderness

    All around one of the best actresses I’ve seen.

  4. Do either of you see any balls, what are they supposed to so scissor each other??

    When referring to both Bobcats being female.

  5. Love this quote from Ruth:
    “Now stop parking in the cripple’s spot! What you got aint a disability it’s just bad judgement.” I think I will use this the next time I see non handicapped people parking in the handicap spot.

  6. “You put him there because you got embarrassed at your dumb ass Missouri state dicklicking party!” — to Marty talking about Ben.

  7. My wife and replayed this Ruth quote 5-6 times and laughed harder 🤣 every time:
    “Sounds like you need to go fuck yourself. What you do is, you roll yourself into a ball or whatever, and you take your dick and you put it up your ass.” — responding to Agent Petty’s threats.

  8. Every Ruth quote is a favorite of mine. Julia Garner is Outstanding as Ruth! She is great in anything, a true talent!
