    • Todd: (observing the traffic while being driven to work) Oh man, this is insane! It's like, it's like Frogger but, but with real people.

    • Todd: Why does yours say Manager too?
      Rajiv: Oh, I'm simply planning ahead. You see, after your return to America, I will become Manager of the call center. I thought to myself, why print a name tag that says Assistant Manager when it is only a matter of time before you triumph here and make a glorious homecoming.
      Todd: Oh wow, so you've, you've got it all figured out, huh?
      Rajiv: After I become Manager, my salary will increase enough so that I will be able to move out of my parents' apartment and finally marry Vimi. It seems our fates are tied, sir. Your triumphs are my triumphs. Your victories are my victories. We need a victory!

      Todd: Ah, they don't.
