Director and Writers
Director: Mike Judge
Written by: Clay Tarver
Dinesh: When you hip your bosses to our numbers and they get visible hard-ons, have them move quickly. Erlich, you're with me.
(they leave the conference room)
Erlich: It's "hards-on".
Erlich: Hards-on not hard-ons. It's a syntactical error that I could've remedied if you had just given me the space to speak.
Richard: Okay, well, suck a dick.
Dinesh: I'm sorry, what did you say?
Richard: Nice blazer. Thank you. Where'd you get it?
Dinesh: Does it matter?
Richard: I just want to know where I can get one, so I can look like a total fucking douchebag.
Jack: I'm whipping up some proposals right now that are gonna knock that wig right off your head. Yeah. (leaves the room)
Gavin: What the fuck is he up to? (feels his hair) (to Denpok) Look like a fucking wig to you?
Erlich: I am your lead investor, you will respect me as such.
Jian-Yang: I do not respect you. You're not any kind of investor. You own nothing.
Erlich: I own 10 percent. You live in my incubator.
Jian-Yang: No, you evict me, I evict your 10 percent.
Dinesh: Do you think I have too much product in my hair?
Gilfoyle: No, I think you should use more.
Dinesh: Wait. Are you saying that because you think I look ridiculous and you want me to look more ridiculous next time?
Gilfoyle: Which answer will get more of that stuff in your hair?
Gilfoyle: (pouring champagne) I mean, I knew Dinesh was going to fuck this all up, but honestly, this couldn't get any better.
Gilfoyle: What's with the shirt?
Jared: Oh, he sort of became ill on himself.
Gilfoyle: I was wrong. This just got better.
Denpok: By forgoing Western gadgetry, simply stationing myself in the hall outside of his office, I was able to overhear him speaking of his plans to move against you. He even referred to you as "Gavin... Smellson."
Jared: Could Dinesh really sell the company, knowing it's basically a Sizzler buffet for the sexually deranged?
Erlich: Of course he could. Because even if there is a one percent chance of success and a 99 percent chance of failure and prison, he will do the right thing and get me my money back.
Thom: Now, who else thinks changing to a HooliChat log-in is hella lame? Madison, Allison, Jennifer, Stephanie, Quinn, Ingrid, Kaylee... Amber, Sarah, Janelle... Carl. Now, Carl... you said the new sign-in page made you nervous. Did anyone else feel nervous?

Notes and Trivia
Note when Jared used his phone to calculate 51,000 estimated underage users, multiplied by 25.6 average chat sessions per user, multiplied by $16,000 per violation, he had to rotate his phone to see the full number.
