Director and Writers
Director: Brad Hall
Story by: Georgia Pritchett & Will Smith
Jonah: Are you even getting any of this?
Catherine: Getting what?
Jonah: I was looking thoughtfully out the window. Some straight up JFK level shit.
Catherine: I was just getting some B-roll of the fax machine.
Richard: Some bands we haven't used have sent some preemptive cease-and-desist orders. Sting, Bruce Springsteen... sent two letters, actually... and Enya.
Jonah: Enya? Send her a f**king cease-and-desist letter.
Ben: I got an idea. You can clear your head out and have a little fun at the same time.
Ben: Yeah, I'll call Jonah and Dan and you can tear them a six-pack of new assholes.
Selina: Oh, that does sound like fun.
(Ben makes the call)
Ben: Dan, you're on with the president.
Selina: Dan, I cannot f**king believe how terrible you are at your job. What, are you running on a platform of higher taxes and episiotomies?
Dan: Ma'am, we just... we need a little time.
Selina: Put that world's tallest pile of garbage on the phone right now.
Dan: It's the president. (hands the phone to Jonah)
Jonah: Hello, ma'am.
Selina: Hey, hunchback. I don't know what you've been doing instead of trying to win, but I'm gonna guess that it has the word anal in it. Now, you learn to control your co**sucking temper, otherwise I'm gonna come up there myself and I'm gonna shoot you in your f**king mouth.
Ben: Who do you think said it?
Amy: Well, we did. Me and Mike.
Ben: Oh, my God. I thought it was me.
Mike: No way.
Ben: No, I'm pretty sure I called her a c**t to the reporter who broke the story.
Kent: Amy, it's probable that your investigation has already determined that I was the one that called her a c**t. I'm hoping that my utility to the organization gives you reason to protect me on this. Also our friendship.
Gary: Hey, Ben?
Gary: It was me. I called the president the C word.
Ben: No, you didn't.
Gary: I was so mad about her not wearing sunscreen, which is stupid, and I was like, "What an old crone."
Amy: A what?
Gary: An old crone, Amy.
Amy: Gary, C is for c**t.
Amy: We all called her a c**t.
Gary: Oh, my God! What is wrong with you people?
