    • Casey: Ah, you're going for your own look.
      Henry: Yeah...
      Casey: It's nice.
      Henry: ...Yeah, I thought I'd go for the helpful gay pirate kind of thing.
      Casey: You don't look helpful.
      Ron: Actually, I learned this at the sensitivity seminar, that we do not use that word, OK? I mean, I'm not, but we don't know who may be...
      Casey: A pirate?
      Henry: Helpful?

    • Henry: Wow, team leader, huh Ron?
      Ron: Yeah, well, a lot can happen in eight years, my man.

    • Casey: So I just wanna be clear, Sage got five warnings for masturbating in closets?
      Ron: Why do we have to say the word?
      Casey: And I'm on last warning already even though I've only been late two times?

    • Casey: New guy. I totally forgot your name.
      Henry: That's funny. People usually remember it.
      Casey: Why's that?
      Henry: It's Scrotum Phillips.

    • Henry: Are you?...
      Casey: A professional waiter? I'm not. No, no, no, I'm a comedian. I figured that my natural hilariousness would have tipped you off by now.

      Gordon: Well why? Maybe I'll win an award for best cock!
