Outsourced: Temporary Monsanity

Todd begins feeling pressure from his family to succeed, so he tries to impress them by winning a Black Friday sales competition. Fearing defeat, Todd works his employees extra hard, only to find his efforts thwarted when the power goes out due to a torrential downpour. Meanwhile, Charlie tries to redeem himself after losing to Manmeet and Gupta at the Indian version of billiards by challenging them to a game of laser tag.

Episode Quotes
Asha: They're an odd couple, these pilgrims and Indians.
Todd: Yeah. They kinda had a complicated relationship.
Rajiv: It's quite simple, really. The pilgrims came to a land which was not their own and subjugated the Indians so the white man could run the call center. I mean the country.
Todd: All you gotta remember is that the Indians helped the pilgrims survive the winter. That's why we have these huge feasts and we give thanks.
Asha: So if the Indians gave the pilgrims shelter, what did the pilgrims give the Indians?
Todd: Less land to worry about? Actually, they prefer to be called native Americans.
Gupta: Why?
Todd: Well, they find the term Indian derogatory.

Todd: Black Friday is the day after Thanksgiving. It's America's busiest shopping day of the year. And I don't think you guys realize how intense it's gonna be. I want you to watch this. Now, this is a couple of years ago. It's 5:00 A.M. People have been standing in this line for hours waiting for this sale.

Todd: See how out of control it can get?
Gupta: Out of control? I go through worse getting on my train in the morning. But if you think that's horrible, I might be late tomorrow.
Todd: No. People were seriously hurt. It started a riot.
Rajiv: As riots go, this is rather tame. I see no tear gas, no batons, no one set on fire. I could riot circles around these people.
Todd: All right. So you guys are better at rioting than us. But when it comes to shoppers spending beyond their means, we are still number one. As long as the Chinese let us.

Todd: Do we have an tetanus shots in the first-aid Kit?
Rajiv: We do not have a first-aid Kit. If someone gets hurt, it's cheaper to hire a new worker.

Todd: (talking about Charlie) He's a hardcore hunter. He claims he killed a moose and slept inside it. He said he would have slept in till noon if it hadn't been mating season.
