She no longer works at Byrdes’ casino and her beloved Wyatt is dead. This leads her to say, “God is an asshole, isn’t he? Made me smart enough to know how screwed up my life is, but not quite smart enough to get me out of it.” It’s a great sentence, spoken with the simultaneous intelligence, pain, and humor that Julia Garner brings into the role.

Season 2, Episode 10, “The Gold Coast”, delivered what some feel is such an iconic Ruth Langmore line that they’d like to have it on a t-shirt for everyday wear. When she uttered this profane little line (which really encapsulates her character), Marty tried to instruct her to take over his company. Ruth, doubting herself for a moment, told him she wasn’t sure she could handle it. It was to Marty’s credit (and sometimes a fault) that he was sure Ruth could handle what he asked of her. Then Ruth said, “I don’t know sh*t about f**k,” and instantly became a meme.
