Your resume says you minored in French Culinary Arts. Most students work the frier at KFC. You busted tables at Il Picatorre to support yourself. Then you got out of college and started working here. How much did they pay you to give up on your dreams?
Twenty seven thousand a year.
At what point were you going to stop and go back to what made you happy?
Please, for the love of God, can I fire the next one.

(on getting through airport security) Never get behind old people. Their bodies are littered with hidden metal and they never seem to appreciate how little time they have left. Bingo, Asians. They pack light, travel efficiently, and they have a thing for slip on shoes. Gotta love 'em.

(interviewing Natalie for a job) So, what happened?

I... followed a boy.
I guess we've all done that at some point in our lives. (the manager pauses and picks up a letter from his desk, showing it to Natalie)
This guy says I'd be lucky to have you.
(voiceover, reading the letter) To whom it may concern: I can't begin to count the number of people I've fired in my lifetime. So many that I've forgotten what it's like to actually hire someone. We've never met, but I know you'd be lucky to have Natalie Keener. My advice? Take her and don't look back. She'll be the best decision you've made in a long time.
(holding his hand out) I sure hope he's right. (Natalie springs to her feet and shakes hands, gathering her composure and trying not to smile too broadly)
