  • Quotes

    • Rajiv: Sir, I cannot tell if you are being deliberately obtuse, but in India it is customary for service repairmen to receive a small sum of money before they commence work.
      Todd: What? So even though we have a service contract with this company, we still have to bribe him?
      Rajiv: Bribe? That is an ugly, ugly, entirely appropriate word.

    • (watching Gupta dance)
      Rajiv: Shall I call the authorities? It appears that a dancing bear has gotten loose in the call center.

    • (trying to convince Madhuri to enter a talent contest and be discovered)
      Madhuri: Sir, I'm already living my dream. I have a great job, I make enough money to provide for my family. I'm happy the way things are.
      Todd: Really? That's great. You know, not a lot of people can say that.
