      • Eric: Tonight's episode is part 5 of our thrilling story. Evil is afoot. Murder and evil! All in the name of love. For what other reason do men commit evil? For what other reason do men live? No, seriously, you've got to believe me. It's critical that you believe me.

      • Eric: Won't you enjoy the fifth installment of The Spoils of Babylon? Please, dear god please, pay attention to the young actor playing Winston. His name is Marty Comanche, and I found him sleepwalking through Laurel Canyon, high on mescaline. It was a very happy accident that he could act.

      • Cynthia: How will we survive, huh? On the false promise of power from the sun? On unicorns and rainbows? On a carburetor that runs on little gas?
        Devon: How do you know about the carburetor?
        Cynthia: Huh? Oh, nothing, really. I was talking about a barburetor that suns on cherry brittle sass.

      • Cynthia: You'll also have access to a company car. A company plane. Three company bicycles. You'll have a lifetime supply of beef. After five years of employment, you will also be entitled to a small beach shack. You will have fresh orange juice delivered to you every day. Free child care for your friends only, not for you. After ten years, we will pay for any hair transplant surgery you wish to get.
        Devon: Cynthia...
        Cynthia: This is only the beginning. I won't get into it now.

      • Winston: I hate him. I hate him for you loving him more than my hatred for the lack of love for me born out of your hatred of your loving him more than your hatred of my hatred for the love you hate to have for him because of my love for you. I hate him for the love he hated to have for you and for your own hatred of love.

      • Devon: I miss her terribly. That sharp scientific mind and her boobs.

      • Board Member #1: This is all your fault, Cynthia. You put that worthless son of yours, Winston, in charge of our foreign sales. And he couldn't make a deal if it was free ice to the Eskimos. (everyone stares) Not my best. You know what I mean.

      • Winston: So, you have these documents?
        Maddoxton: Well, we have this briefcase filled with documents, and--and other papers of a document nature. But I have no idea what the contents is, of course.
        Winston: These are the documents that one would need if one was making a nuclear bomb?
        Maddoxton: What, these?
        Winston: These documents.
        Maddoxton: Huh, who knows?
        Cauliffe: Nor would we want to know.

      • Eric: I wanted to spend a little time tonight talking about the importance of lighting. But there's some kind of baboon here telling me that I won't have time. I really don't even know what that means. I have all the time in the world to discuss lighting for film and television production. The subject lends itself to long discourses and theories for which I have many. So it makes no sense to me--Eric Cransler Jonrosh--that I'm being told I can't talk. By the way, how long are these shows we are doing going to last? Thirty seconds? Really? Thirty, wait, thirty seconds to talk about lighting? Impossible. We will need to go over and use up time from one of the other shows. That's possible, right? I should think that would be possible if we could just borrow time from...
