Gary: About the campaign, I had an idea.
Selina: (handing him a used sanitary wipe) Here you go.
Gary: Instead of doing all this pre-campaigning, sometime in the next 24 hours, you grab a mic, you say, "I'm Selina Meyer, and I'm running for President of the United States."
Selina: I'm just gonna use the bathroom really quick.
Dan: You don't announce your candidacy while the incumbent is still warm. That's like trying to bang the widow at the funeral. You would have hear start her campaign with no strategy, no money, no staff except for (indicating himself...) Superman and (...and Amy) Wonder Woman over there, just, (super-cutesy) "I wanna be President."
Gary: Ma'am, I don't know if you just heard what he was saying...
Selina: No, I didn't hear what he was saying, but I agree with Dan. I completely appreciate your ideas, Gary.
Dan: No matter how dumb they are.
Dan: We need to pick a number.
Selina: No, I know, but I need to get clarity here. I'm not feeling it.
Dan: I was clear! I was clear! We just need to pick a f**king number, any f**king number. Give that f**king number to the f**king press, and go to f**king bed! I mean, how much more clarity do you need? You want to print it on a f**king t-shirt? Come on! (long awkward pause) I'm so sorry. I did not mean to blow up like that.
Selina: Well, um, I accept your apology while retaining the right to fire the f**k out of you. Shall I print that up on a T-shirt that I could give to you?
