Episode Quotes
Hank: Are you sure you and Divya can cover today?
Evan: Oh my god, I still can't believe you're not gonna be her for this, this is a giant fish Hank, like this is bigger than Boris' giant fish, this is the Loch Ness monster of fishes.
Hank: Yeah, I'm all broken up.
Evan: You will be once you find out who this is, this is the biggest, wealthiest, most exclusive client we've ever had by far.
Hank: Really? Okay, I'll bite, who is it?
Evan: I have no idea. Whoever he or she is they are so famous that we can't even find out till we get there! How awesome is that? And they've already cut me a cashiers check that literally made me tear up a little bit.

Boris: Lets talk about your situation, you've structured a plan, have you?
Hank: I called my lawyer.
Boris: I made a few calls, too. I think I can help.
Hank: How?
Boris: Perhaps it's best if you don't know.
Hank: No, thank you.

Charlie: I know you still love me Jill, I can see it in your eyes.
Jill: It's over, Charlie.
Charlie: I still have six minutes left!

Divya: Evan, are you developing a conscience?
Evan: I am constantly evolving, yeah.
