Statistician 1: You're like Neo.
Dan: Wow.
Selina: What's a Neo?
Statistician 1: He's from The Matrix. Everything he does is awesome.
Statistician 2: The first movie. The sequels sucked.
Jonah: Guys, we agreed to let The Matrix debate lie.
Dan: Jesus, I can feel my virginity growing back in here.

Sue: Marion, listen very closely. You have as much chance of getting the Vice President on your show as you have of getting your husband to leave that cheerleader. (pause) Yes, Marion, we're all aware of that. Good-bye.

Selina: (very tired, hearing she has interviews to do) Oh, God.
Gary: Okay, I got coffee, I got ginseng, I got protein bars. You want some of those?
Selina: No.
Gary: No?
Selina: I need that stuff that junkies use. You know, when it takes a cop 15 bullets to put him down.

Amy: (to her sister) You have three kids by two different guys, maybe your last word should've been "no."

Dan Egan: (regarding Kent Davison) The Pol Pot of pie charts! Wow, that guy is ruthless!

Ben Cafferty: (regarding Kent Davison) He's got ice in his semen.

Selina: Okay, folks, Kent Davison is back. So, number one: what are we gonna do about it? Number two: why am I telling you this news? And number three: would you please hang up the phone because I'm the f**king Vice President of the United States and I have something to say.
