Best Ruth Langmore Quotes in Netflix's Ozark

I absolutely adore the character Ruth Langmore, played brilliantly by Julia Garner in Netflix’s Ozark. Her quick wit and sassy, nasty attitude continually made my mouth drop open while I laughed and cheered her on. Here are the best Ruth Langmore quotes from Ozark.

Spoiler warning for all three seasons of Ozark. And be aware… Profanity ahead. 


Listen to our episode by episode discussion of Ozark on Ozark’s Dirty Laundry Podcast!

Ruth Langmore is a 19-year-old local resident of Lake of the Ozarks. She lives in a trailer with her uncles and cousins, and in season two, also her Dad. Known by local law enforcement to be an up and coming criminal mastermind, she gets entwined with Marty’s money laundering business after trying to steal from him.

Actress Julia Garner is from New York City and does not have a southern accent. She won a Best Supporting Actress Emmy award in 2019 for her role as Ruth. You can see more of her in The Americans and the Netflix original Maniac.
