Best character

I might be the only person but I actually quite like Marcus and he does have some really funny moments in this episode. Slicing his thumb off wasn’t funny, but the moments before it were.

Best quotes and one liners

GLENN: Good morning.

AMY: Morning. Can’t believe we’re back. Same stupid time cards. Same boring beige halls.

JONAH: Actually, I think that cockroach in the light is new.

AMY: Nope, Ernie’s been here longer than me.

AMY: Okay, we need to keep the line moving. We have a lot of hungry, angry people out there.

MARCUS: Uh, you can just say “hangry” now. It’s a new word. My friend’s cousin made it up.

AMY: Oh, uh, Glenn, I forgot to mention those skateboarders are back.

GLENN: Oh, Jeff, come with me. Now now, those girls are big for 12, but there’s two of us, so it’ll be a fair fight this time.

AMY: The last time we saw the thumb it was in a tub of guacamole, but then we found this open tub of guacamole on the floor, so it could be a different guacamole, or else it could be the same guacamole, but the thumb fell out. So the thumb could either be in a guacamole or it could be anywhere. Any questions?

GARRETT: Yeah, uh, is it just regular guacamole?

AMY: No, it’s, uh grapefruit, ginger, and lime.

AMY: Whoever finds the thumb, pick up the intercom and say I don’t know, “strawberry jam.”

GARRETT: Ooh, but what if something actually happens with strawberry jam?

AMY: I am willing to take that chance.
