Director and Writers

Director: Mike Judge
Written by: Ron Weiner


Aide: I like your tie.
Richard: Oh, thank you. I tied it myself.

Gavin: (interupting) ...and Hooli, sir. Hooli also acknowledged some spectacular lapses.

Gilfoyle: He looks like a child in a custody hearing.
Dinesh: But, like, you don't feel sorry for him. You just want him to go away and not have any parents at all.

Richard: We are in the seat of the US government, a government that was founded by people who were, at one point, ruled by kings they couldn't overthrow. So, what did they do, right? They started over. They came here, to the New World. World 2.0, version 1776. And the way we win is by creating a new, democratic, decentralized Internet, one where the behavior of companies like this will be impossible, forever. One where it is the users, not the kings, who have sovereign control over their data. This, I promise to you: I will help you end this tyranny by building an Internet that is of the people, by the people, and for the people, so help me God.

Jared: Okay, so you touch down at Dulles, you turn off airplane mode, and then...
Richard: Well, actually, we flew through Reagan National.
Jared: Reagan? But you love trams.

Jared: (to Richard) The word companion derives from the Latin word "panis" for bread, and while I can no longer digest bread, I know that you leaven my life.

HR: I think once you see the conference room suites though, you'll really fall in love.
Jared: Well, I don't fall in love with rooms.

Gavin: You tell Bezos we keep the Hooli name, or he can go fuck himself with his rocket ship.

Richard: So, Dinesh thinks this is you?
Gilfoyle: Correct. He's been messaging with it all day and he has no idea it's an AI.
Richard: Well, we fooled a human. I guess we just passed the Turing test.
Gilfoyle: Almost a human.

Richard: It's unethical in the defense of ethics. Uh, unjust in the quest for justice.
Jared: It's like stealing from your pimp to pay for your friend's appendectomy.\

Richard: I say, what time is it? (to Jared) Uh Where's my phone. Uh, do you have a phone? Do you have a phone?
Jared: It is fuck you o'clock!

Jared: You know, there's a couple of beers back at the office with our names on them... because when I put it back in the fridge, I put our names on them.


"Easy Loving" by Freddie Hart (End credits music.)
