    • Dave: Max. I think your fear stems from the fact that you feel that you're too weird for your co-workers, right? Max: Yes. Dave: All right now. I want you to look around. Not over there. Over here, Max. (indicates the WNYX staff) See? Here we have Lisa. Who today very nearly gave up a career in journalism for life in the fast food industry. Over here we have Beth. Who dresses like a barmaid from Bladerunner. Mr. James, the billionaire who has spent the entire day eating food that he knows for a fact to be spoiled. Joe. Who has earned upwards of $11 working as an amateur survaillance expert. Albeit, half of that is Monopoly money. And of course, Matthew... Who appears to have taken over the survaillance into his own hands. Max: I get it! Everybody here is weird!

    • Max: No one wants to know the real me. Dave: Well why not? Max: Because I'm, I'm weird. Dave: It's okay, Max. Max: You know I work very hard to conceal my weirdness from the world, and now you just want to unleash it on everyone. Dave: Everyone is a little bit weird. Max: I collect buttons. Dave: Sounds like a fun hobby. Max: And rubber bands. I put peanut butter on practically everything, even steak. Dave: It's an acquired taste but it's hardly that weird. Max: I still have the sweater that my mother knitted me when I was a baby. Dave: Well that's sweet. Max: And I'm wearing it right now.

    • Dave: No. Matthew: No what? Dave: No to whatever you were going to say. Matthew: Okay, but before I leave I thought you should see this. Max left it on his desk. Dave: Ah. Matthew: I think it's supposed to be you, Dave. Dave: Yeah I see that. Matthew: Well I guess this is the final straw for Max Louis, no? Dave: Matthew, this is drawn on the back of your timesheet with the same pen that you used to fill out your timesheet. And what the hell am I supposed to be riding there anyway? Matthew: Pegasus, the winged horse of ancient myth. Dave: Uh huh, and that is insulting because? Matthew: A mere mortal riding a horse of the gods? Come on, you can't get more ridiculous than that. Dave: Uh huh. Get out of here.

    • Joe: I think I figured out what Max Louis' secret is. Dave: Oh let me guess. He's an alien? Joe: No. Dave: Time traveller? Joe: No. Dave: CIA operative? Joe: No. Dave: Robot man? (long pause) You know, half man, half robot. Joe: I know what a robot man is. But you're overlooking the obvious. Dave: Evil magician? Joe: Serial bigamist. Dave: Oh, that is obvious now that you mention it.

    • Joe: I checked my sources, and Max Louis hasn't worked at any of the radio stations on his resume. Dave: Uh huh, your sources. I assume that means other electricians working at those stations. Joe: We're everywhere, Dave. But don't worry, we like you.
