Gary: What did you do?
Amy: You know what I did? I went to bed at 7:00 p.m.
Gary: Ooh.
Amy: 7:00 p.m. on a Saturday night. Even people who are dying of malaria stay up later than that.
Gary: Well, they can't sleep because they're coughing.

Dan: I'm not gonna be able to sleep tonight. That was f**kin' dark. You've gone up 10 levels in my estimation, by the way.
Amy: Which means I've gone down 100 in my own.
Dan: Sometimes you've gotta go down to go up.
Amy: Eh-- I am taking the credit for this. I tunneled through the shit, I get the dirty glory. It is me who tells Selina the good news.

Jonah: I'm gonna get back to the White House. God, I love saying that!

Selina: I'm the Vice President of the United States, you stupid little f**kers! These people should be begging me! That door should be half its height so that people can only approach me in my office on their goddamn, motherf**king knees.
