Amy: (to Dan) You have more nervous tics than a shoe bomber.

Dan: (as Amy pulls a phone out of her panties) You keep a second phone there? Hypocritical... and horny.
Photographer: One... two...
Amy: *hit on my *its! Maddox just resigned.

Jonah: Ah! You guys are just like two little pretty Easter eggs. I'd love to crack you open.
Dan: Hey, Hepatitis J. How's that pic you posted on your blog going, huh?
Jonah: It's a hashtag hurricane, bitch tits.
Dan: You don't think maybe you should take that down?
Jonah: You don't think you should go fist a chimp?

Kent: You're embarrassing yourself.
Jonah: Sir, I don't have anything else in my life.
Dan: He really doesn't.
Jonah: See? Exactly. Thank you, Dan... F**k you, Dan!
