Matthews: Hart, listen to me. I've been waiting 5 years to run my own op. You think I'd blow it on the wrong girl?
Gracie Hart: No, no, I know the only reason you picked me is because i'm the only one who looked half-decent in a bikini and wasn't on maternity leave.
Matthews: No, that's why they let me pick you. You want to know why I picked you?
Gracie Hart: Lost a bet?
Matthews: Because you're smart. Because you don't take any crap from people. You're funny. You're easy to talk to when you're not armed. Give yourself a break. Cut Vic and the rest of the pageant ladies some slack, because if they ever get a chance to see what I see, then... They're gonna love you.
Gracie Hart had a breakdown with Mr. Melling and she almost quit the pageant but she just needed to hear some kind words from Matthews.
