Episode Quotes
Dana: I'll ask you again -- please, let's have this meeting in my office.
J.J.: And I am telling you, we're past that.
Dana: J.J., I was hoping this meeting would go differently. I was prepared to eat whatever I had to for Isaac's sake. And I asked the senior staff to do the same, which, by the way, is the only reason why Dan, Casey, Jeremy, Elliott, Chris, Will, and Dave haven't beaten the crap out of you guys by now! I've changed my mind! At this point, you have two choices -- fire me or shut the hell up!

(Sam Donovan is walking the network executives through the studio.)
Sam Donovan: One last thing -- the first and last decision-making authority on this show will rest with Isaac Jaffe until Isacc Jaffee says otherwise, and if you disrespect him in my presence again, I will rededicate the rest of my life to ruining the rest of yours. And if you think I'm just mouthing at you, you should ask around about me. I have absolutely no conscience about these things.
J.J.: Sam, why did you bring us out here?
Sam Donovan: Because there's the exit. That's it. The meeting's over.
