    • Voiceover: Veridian Dynamics. The environment. Everyone likes it. And so, we do too. That's why we're committed to saving it. Veridian Dynamics is turning every one of our buildings 100% green. It's ridiculously expensive and spending money makes us sad. But we're doing it because we love nature, even when it's being mean or just acting stupid. Veridian Dynamics. Greening our world.

    • Ted: So how did I get here? Because I like a girl, specifically this girl. And like so many stories about a girl, this one starts with gunplay.

    • Lem: We've disappointed him. Phil: No one would want to be us right now, and since we are us right now, it's very difficult.

    • Veronica: There is no program to green the building. Ted: Yeah there is. They made a commercial about it. Veronica: I didn't say there wasn't a commercial about greening the building. I said there is no program to green the building. Ted: So it's all a lie? Veronica: They prefer to look at it as a dream. Ted: But one they're not working towards/ Veronica: Are you working toward all your dreams, Ted? Then stop pointing fingers.

    • Ted: The company has classified this as confidential. Linda: But it's a good thing. Why does it need to be confidential? Ted: Because, uh, if only bad things were confidential, then every time they labeled something as "confidential," people would know it was bad. Linda: That's weird. Ted: I know. Then don't do it.
