Director and Writers
Director: Mike Judge
Written by: Carson Mell
HR: Oh, you're "that guy".
Gilfoyle: What "guy" exactly?
HR: The brooding, arrogant guy who refuses to take orders? Self-taught coder who looks down on anyone who's taken a class. You're probably an atheist or something more contrarian. You claim to be an anarcho-capitalist, but you work here and pay taxes. You've probably read half of Neal Stephenson's Cryptonomicon, and it's about 50/50 whether you own a snake.
Gavin: If we move to Georgia, we can save a fortune and get a further investment. It's the only way.
Denpok: Well, I have heard good things about the food scene in the Dirty South.
Hoover: Stankonia. Freaknik. Might be nice to be around more people of color.
Gavin: What? Not Atlanta. Tbilisi. The country of Georgia, not the state.
Gavin: (to Denpok and Hoover) All right then. Plan B. You two and the team will move to Belarus. If we can get close enough to the Chernobyl exclusion zone, it's a buyer's market, and with the money we save from substantially downgrading from Tiblisi, plus the bigger Belarusian investment we've been offered, I'll maintain a pied-a-terre here in town.
Hoover: Last year, CIFIUS reversed the sale of Grindr to Chinese investors. They ruled that the sexual and HIV status of US citizens was something they needed to keep out of the hands of foreign interests.
Dinesh: Richard, there is a major emergency. Gilfoyle is using the barista as one of the coders, so I tried to use the cappuccino machine on my own, and I don't know if, like, the frother knob is, like, jammed or something, but it's, like, not working. So, there is no froth, at all, for anybody. So, can you get on that?
