Ben: He isn't going to run again in two years.
Selina: Are you serious?
Ben: No, I'm Joan f**king Rivers. Of course I'm serious.

Roger: All right, let's get this over with ASAP. It's not gonna be easy with this big, gangly piss flap over here who moves like-- hey, what do you move like, Will?
Will: I move as slowly as a Mississippi detective investigating the murder of a young black man.
Roger: That's right.

Selina: Okay, now listen, I got this science fair thing. So I want to make my speech... a little bit more presidential.
Dan: Yeah.
Selina: Like I'm Marilyn Monroe, just JFK the f**k out of me.
Dan: Ooh, I got something.

Ed: Hey, Sue, don't talk to me that way, okay? You're the secretary to the vice president. That's like being Garfunkel's roadie, okay?

Dan: Was your mom plagiarizing the Bible when she said, "Oh God, oh God"?

Science nerd: When I grow up, I want to be vice president just like you.
Selina: Oh no, you don't. You want to be president.

Jonah: Hey, it's J-Diddy. Ladies get giddy.
Selina: Jonah. Hey, listen, settle something for me.
Jonah: Okay.
Selina: You like to have sex and you like to travel?
Jonah: Yes, ma'am.
Selina: Then you can f**k off.

Science nerd: You're not the president.
Ben: No, but you're not Justin Bieber either, are you, sport? Ma'am. POTUS is here.
Selina: Where? Has he been miniaturised?

Selina: Well, I have huge news. In fact, I guarantee you that my news is front-page news. Your news is probably more like a page six, Kardashian crap news.

Sue: Thank you so much for seeing me at such short notice, Mr. Davison.
Kent: Happy to, Miss Wilson. I'm an ardent admirer of your efficiency and precision.
Sue: Oh, well, in that case, let's get right to it.
Kent: Excellent. I respect your brevity. It's almost threatening.

Kent: Ma'am, my brain is at your service.
Selina: We'll see.

Selina: I've got to get out of here before I set fire to one of these nerds.

Jonah: Ma'am, of all the places that I have liaised, I have enjoyed liaising here the most.

Selina: Jonah, don't talk, don't stay. You need to f**k off and go back to Westworld.
Jonah: But, ma'am--
Selina: You need to f**k off.
Jonah: But, ma'am--
Selina: I said f**k off. Three f**ks, you're out.
Jonah: Yes, ma'am.

Secret Service Agent: Ma'am, the president has left the building.
Selina: Who gives a flying f**k?
