    • Joan: I said I was your lawyer.
      Annie: Did they buy it?
      Joan: No. But you might as well treat me like one, because it's gonna be the same advice.

    • Annie: August.
      Auggie: Ann.
      Annie: So if we see something that we don't think feels right, the company wants us to report it, right, no matter how ridiculous?
      Auggie: Encourages it, in fact. Why? You see your gardener buying too much fertilizer?

    • Danielle: (about Jai) Oh, my God. He's, like, the George Clooney of wherever he's from.
      Annie: Nice. He's actually third generation D.C.

    • Ben: I'm not sure whether I, uh... Apologize first for leaving you in Sri Lanka or... Breaking into your home.

    • Auggie: Oh. I know that sound. Access denied. Someone's gonna throw a net over you in five, four... Three...
      Annie: Har har. I mock your attempt at humor.
