Best quotes and one liners

GARRETT: I didn’t know Dina was into fancy little porcelain doll-men.


AMY: You know, she did mention a few weeks ago that her grandmother was sick. 

JONAH: Oh, that’s great! No, I didn’t mean… No, it’s, uh… I was just saying, you know, like, if I get that age, somebody put a bullet in me. [chuckles]


AMY: I don’t want to be Assistant Manager. 

GLENN: But you didn’t even look out the window. 

AMY: I know. Look, I really appreciate the offer, I do. But it’s basically more work for the same amount of money.

GLENN: Since when have you been in this for the money? 

AMY: Pretty much from day one.


MATEO: I’m working on my presentation for assistant manager. I want to show them that I have the strength of a lion, the intelligence of a dolphin, and the determination of a worker ant. And this is just what I look like on a rabbit. 

GARRETT: I’m sold, but… what are you gonna do for the talent portion of the interview? MATEO: Talent portion? 

GARRETT: I see we got some work to do.


GLENN: Amy! Are you leaving or just peeing? 

AMY: Leaving. 

GLENN: Okay. Just wanted to know if I should wait.

Final thoughts and fun facts

This episode has the first appearance of Marcus, who I actually really like because he’s just so weird. He also tries really hard to make everyone like him and it’s a little sad.

Amy wears a different name tag in each episode. In this episode, her name tag says “Molly”.

At the end of every episode, the card for the production company Spitzer Holding Company features a variety of items they specialize in. In this episode, they list Aerospace, Krav Maga, and Polyfibers.
