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: (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.
