Director and Writers
Director: Matt Ross
Written by: Carrie Kemper
Richard: (In a Knight's costume) Dodgy gadin, my merry knights of Piper. Sir Owen, doing valiant battle with the authentication service. Yes, good. Yeah. Oh, and prithee, Becky, my queen, how goeth cashless payments?
Becky: Russ's pricing keeps tripping us up.
Richard: Okay, how so?
Becky: Well, this morning, he decided everyone at RussFest should be a billionaire, so every dollar someone puts into their account will now be worth one billion RussBucks.
Richard: Zwoons! So, what, like a sandwich will be worth 15 billion RussBucks or something?
Becky: Fourteen billion, nine hundred and ninety-nine million, nine hundred and ninety-nine thousand, nine hundred and ninety-nine RussBucks and ninety-nine RussCents, because he thought that would sound cheaper.
Dinesh: Hey, Richard. Did you order meat? Like a bunch of meat? Like 4,000 pounds of meat?
Gilfoyle: Interesting. I put Son of Anton on finding us cheap hamburgers for lunch. It looks like the reward function was a little under-specified.
Russ: Hologram question. You told AT&T that the hologram would be interactive, right?
Russ: See, asshole? My hologram can 100% dry hump festival-goers from behind. If they ask for it. Hashtag woke.
Richard: Once more people show up, the network effect will take over, and it will stabilize, I promise.
Russ: Do you swear? Because one time, I threw a party and David Copperfield said it was beat. Promise me that this will not be beat.
Monica: Big Head! What the hell is going on here?
Big Head: What do you mean?
Jian-Yang: Who let her in? I take one lousy sh1t...
Monica: Jian-Yang, what is going on here?
Jian-Yang: All girls coding camp. I support woman.
Richard: So, Gilfoyle, how much faster is our network now?
Gilfolye: Zero faster. It's slower, and still degrading.
Richard: What are you talking about?
Gilfoyle: About how our network is slower and still degrading.
Russ: Did you get my messages?
Gilfoyle: Uh... Messaging's stalling, too.
Russ: I sent you guys photos of three different outfits. Did you hate them all? Wha... What's wrong?
Jared: Uh, no. Definitely the second one. I like the second one.
Russ: You really think a white guy can wear that and get away with it?
Russ: You know what? You're right. f*ck political correctness. I'm looking at four guys that f*ck!
