Selina: Well, I've asked America if she wants me to be her president. Now she's gonna give us her answer.
Gary: America doesn't just love you, ma'am, - she is in love with you.
Mike: We've lost Kentucky!
Sue: Politics bores me. It bores the living hell out of me. God, it's boring. Amy looks off her game, distracted.
Sue's Friend: I only really know Amy as the woman who rushed everywhere clutching her phone like it contained her frozen embryos.
Jonah: You guys remember the A-Team, right? A-Team? "I'm the A-Team". Mr. T... Um they were supposed to be on the run, but, you know, they were in a really distinctive van. Yeah, what was up... What was up with that?
Selina: You know, Catherine, men are horrible. Okay? I mean, I have to just tell it to you like it is, honey. But all men are awful. Really. And the key is to just find a man who's the least horrible.
Selina: Jesus Christ, you know? You do your best. You try to serve the people and then they just f**k you over. And you know why? Because they're ignorant and they're dumb as shit. And that, ladies and gentlemen, is democracy.
Selina: No, I'll tell you what's unprecedented, Kent. A tie is unprecedented. So is becoming the first lady president. So is that jackoff becoming president through the back door. Okay? The rule book's been torn up now and America is wiping its nasty ass with it.
