Joe Thornhill: (on TV) I'm just an honest Joe, and I like to speak my mind.
Selina: (to Ben) How much would I love to speak my mind on this campaign? Can you imagine if I did that? "Mississippi is chock full of a**holes, I don't trust the Chinese, and I gotta tell you something. I'm not gonna be able to pass a single piece of legislation that's really gonna make any f**k of a difference in your life." So how's that for my platform?
Ben: Got my vote.

Mike: You know, Dan, watching you try to be nice is like watching a baby smoke a cigarette. It's kind of cool, but also very disturbing.
