01x04 - Lirio de los Valles

Woman: Previously on Queen of the South...

Epifanio: You leave me now, you die.

What did she do to you?

Epifanio (over phone): That puta and Guero stole from me.

If you find this girl, let me know.

Epifanio has men everywhere looking for her.

Whatever he wants her for, it's very important.

Important enough to pretend she doesn't mean anything.

James: The second she takes an interest in you, it's gonna be harder for you to get out. Just do small things when you're asked.

She'll get bored with you.

Camila: When life gave you a choice about what to do with the man that stole from us...

Just let him go.

You chose mercy. That was the wrong choice.

Women in this business, we cannot afford to look weak.

When I agreed to do this, I didn't mean antagonizing one of the largest businessmen in Sinaloa.

Camila: Everything my husband has, I help him build.

So if you're afraid of him, you have to be afraid of me too.

Teresa, where are you? Why aren't you here?

Find a coyote who can take you to Dallas, Texas.

Brenda: This better be worth it, Teresa.

You tell me.

Is America as bad as everybody says it is?

You're gonna love it here.
