Quotes

Amy: Selina might be pregnant. What do we wanna do?
Mike: Is this for real? 'Cause if it is, the best thing for her legacy is if she's assassinated before she starts showing.

Dan: So what do you think is she really pregnant?
Amy: How should I know?
Dan: You're a woman.
Amy: You think as a woman I might sense some disturbance in, f**king what, the lady matrix?

Amy: You okay? You seem to be phoning it in a little.
Selina: You know what, Amy? I'm the Veep I never wanted to be. I'm talking salad wraps and body mass index to these idiots.
Amy: You should really just go and--
Selina: Yeah, I know, feel my soul slide out of my ass.

Dan: Wait a second. So-- Ma'am-- So you're the one who's pregnant?
Selina: I might be pregnant.
Dan: So we're looking at a wedding.
Selina: Or a suicide. I haven't decided which.

Dan: (seeing a pregnancy test Amy is buying for Selina) Holy sh-- Are you pregnant? Amy, come on, career-wise, that's like joining Scientology or getting a f**king neck tattoo.
Amy: Thanks for the support.
Dan: So I guess you're gonna be needing maternity leave. I'd be the obvious choice for your replacement.
Amy: That is literally your first thought?
Dan: No. My first thought was, "there goes your figure," but I didn't say that because I thought it would be upsetting.
Amy: Thanks. You know, if it's a boy, maybe I'll name him after you. Call him F**k Weasel.
