Quotes & Dialogue

Don’t laugh. […] I just wonder if it might be helpful for us to stand behind her and perhaps chant her name.

— Irving, (06:03)

I knew you could do it, Helly R. Even in your darkest moments, I could see you arriving here. In refining your macrodata file, you have brought glory to this company and to me. Kier Eagan. I… I love you. But now I must away, for there are others who need me around the world. Goodbye, Helly.R, and thank you.

— Kier Eagan [on computer], (08:41)

Oh, Mark. I don’t know how you knew for the end of the quarter I wanted a heart attack.

— Cobel, (09:53)

I know I vexed you. I know I’m… strange.

— Ms. Casey, (13:22)

For me, my favorite time was the eight hours I spent in your department watching Helly. It’s the longest I’ve ever been awake. I suppose it’s what you could call my good old days.

— Ms. Casey, (13:39)

Because we’re people, not parts of people. Even with what little they gave us, these are our lives. No one gets to just turn you off.

— Mark, (14:31)

Do you know if I’m happy up there?

— Ms. Casey, (16:45)

But before we begin…A very special gift for a very special Dylan. Our three-time R of the Q! A man whose mind is as sharp as his incisors.

— Milchick, (18:49)

Yeah, the egg bar is coveted as fuck.

— Dylan, (20:16)

I figured it out. The goats lay the eggs.

— Helly, (24:18)

You’re easy to pretend to care about.

— Mark, (25:43)

Page 197 slaps.

— Dylan, (29:02)

Okay, kids. Let’s find out what’s for dinner.

— Irving, (29:20)

[kisses Mark] In case we don’t come back. Or, I don’t know, in case we do?

— Helly, (30:26)

Fuck her goddamn soul forever into hell! Filth and fucking fire until she fucking dies! Fuck her and her fucking fake smile! Oh, God. Fuck her goddamn soul!

— Cobel, (33:40)

You know, maybe I could drive my own car. And that way I could leave if I’m uncomfortable or afraid.

— Cobel, (38:10)

This severance thing, it…Not sure I need it anymore.

— Mark, (44:37)
