Mia: "The fuck?"
Boy: "Am I supposed to pretend I haven't seen it?"
Mia: "Uh, yeah. Because what you just said is, I masturbated to your dead sister's sex tape. Which is kind of awesome, if bizarrely honest. And P.S.? She'd been clean for months, so it wasn't an OD. She was murdered. I gotta go."
Boy: "Bye Mia! You're so strong!"
Mia: "No, I am on total drugs! Later!"
BOWERS PHARM IND
Joanna: "Whew. Now that Robert's stepped away, I can spend my lunch hour trying random passwords on his computer until I get to the file that shows me who works in each department. A thing I don't have on my computer."
Edward: "What the fuck are you doing in my daddy's office?"
Joanna: "Um, putting things on his... schedule?"
Edward: "Fuck you, Joanna, I know how Outlook works."
Joanna: "You are pricklier than a man exiled from high society after allegations of rape and murder and a short marriage to bipolar Marin Hinkle."
Robert, appearing: "You look good in that chair! My chair!"
Edward: "First day at work, already spinning around in the CEO's chair..."
(I've always loved Tate Donovan, but that one line put me firmly the hell in Edward's corner. Tater D! Set 'em up, knock 'em down! Role of a lifetime!)
Edward: "Anyway I'm Audi 5000, I have a soccer game for one of my dumb irrelevant kids that you never even see what they look like."
Robert: "Family! It's very important to me, Robert Bowers. Joanna, get your purse. I'm going to cram you in everywhere I can until it stops being awkward. Which maybe is never!"
Joanna: "Are you sure? Because that sounds horrible in every possible way."
Robert: "You gotta see my granddaughter play, she's a killer! Fouls all the time, but I love it. You're coming. It's going to be a bloodbath!"
I'm not saying that Robert is satirically one of the cleverest, most compassionate and simultaneously skewering representations of white male privilege we've yet seen, I'm just saying that nobody's really written that character this cleverly or with this much dimension since Damages. He really does love his family and he really wants the best for them, and that's where it ends. School vouchers, tax shelters, capital gains and Big Pharma and estate taxes and loopholes and favor-trading and all the ways the guys on top stay on top while saying it's a free country for everybody, and not even aware that they're lying. And he is exactly as lovable and as scary as those guys actually are, which is quite an accomplishment.
