Director and Writers

Director: Mike Judge
Written by: Carson Mell


Richard: Money just perverts everything.
Gilfoyle: At this point, I could stand to be a little perverted.
Dinesh: Yeah, I wanna be a lot perverted.

Jared: I've been agonizing over this. Not sleeping, not eating I completely forgot my godson's 40th birthday.

Gavin: Foxhole is a very exciting web-based exchange, catering to those in the military, who are interested in having extramarital affairs.

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.

Monica: I thought you moved to China.
Laurie: The interesting thing about moving, Monica, is that you can do it more than once. I am back.

Laurie: With those Chinese out of the way, I can finally be more ruthlessly efficient.

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?

Jared: I oughta knock your teeth, you bitch-made motherfucker.
Richard: I-I-I I didn't mean it.
Jared: I was state-raised! You think I'm scared to catch a case... of some bullshit?!
