Celebration [1.01] edit

Lawrence Yee: You get the message?
Kendall Roy: What?
Lawrence Yee: I'm not letting you Neanderthals in to rape my company. Ever.
Kendall Roy: I'm sorry?
Lawrence Yee: You're a bunch of bloated dinosaurs who didn't even notice the monkeys swinging by until yesterday. Well, fuck you, daddy's boy.

Alessandro Daniels: Do you wanna call your dad?
Kendall Roy: Do I wanna call my dad? No, I don't wanna call my dad. Do you wanna call your dad?

Roman Roy: Oh, we're not surprising him, are we? Oh, this is- Oh, he's gonna love this. I think the last time I surprised him he took a swing at me.

Logan Roy: [receiving a gift from Connor] Oh, wonderful. What is it?
Connor Roy: Well...
Roman Roy: Oh yes, yes, it's a goo. It's a fucking goo?
Shiv Roy: It's perfect.
Connor Roy: It's sourdough starter. I thought that you might like to make something.
Logan Roy: Ohh... great.
Connor Roy: Yeah, okay. You shouldn't have opened it. Never mind. Forget it. It was an idea. I thought you might like it.
Logan Roy: I do, I do. I just don't know what the fuck it is!

Kendall Roy: I wasn't about to get into a fucking big dick competition, okay?
Logan Roy: I hear you bent for him.
Kendall Roy: Wha... I what?
Logan Roy: I hear you bent for him, and he fucked you.
Kendall Roy: Well, no, actually.
Logan Roy: You know, I know that you've read a lot of books about business management and this and that, but you know what?
Kendall Roy: What?
Logan Roy: Sometimes, it is a big dick competition.

Logan Roy: It's my fucking company.
Kendall Roy: Yeah you're right, it is your fucking company. And you know what? You're running it into the fucking ground.

Shit Show at the Fuck Factory [1.02] edit

Roman Roy: Dad made me COO.
Kendall Roy: I don't think so, dude. Dad wasn't thinking straight.
Roman Roy: I think he was.
Kendall Roy: You? The Chief Operating Officer?
Roman Roy: Yep.
Kendall Roy: I mean if that wasn't a sign he was loco in the coco, I don't know what it is.

Shiv Roy: I mean, we have options.
Kendall Roy: Sure... You could all ask for morphine, so you can stay in your painless fucking fantasy world where the orchids dance and the company is run by a magical fucking unicorn!

Kendall Roy: What do you... What do you have against me?
Shiv Roy: Nothing.
Kendall Roy: Nothing?
Shiv Roy: Oh, you want me to actually say?
Kendall Roy: Yes, I do.
Shiv Roy: You lack killer instinct, you're wet, you're green, you're intellectually insecure-
Kendall Roy: Bullshit.
Shiv Roy: -You're not emotionally strong enough, you have addiction issues!
Kendall Roy: That's enough!
Shiv Roy: I don't think all that, I'm just trying to be Dad's voice.

Connor Roy: I'm not saying I would make a better CEO, that's unsaid.
Kendall Roy: It's not unsaid when you say it.
Connor Roy: No, I'm saying I'm not saying it, so, in fact, it is unsaid.
Kendall Roy: Hey, pal, why don't you go help Willa with her homework?
Connor Roy: Ouch, asshole.

Lifeboats [1.03] edit

Kendall Roy: So, I just wanted to get the gang together early in my tenure to say, uh, "Yo."

Tom Wambsgans: Shakin' the tree, folks. Shakin' the tree. Excuse me. Greg. Are you kidding?
Greg Hirsch: Hey, Tom.
Tom Wambsgans: Forgive me, but uh... We talkin' to each other on the poop deck of a majestic schooner? Is the salty brine stinging my weather bitten face? No? Then why the fuck are you wearing a pair of deck shoes, man?
Greg Hirsch: Oh... Yeah... No, well my credit card got maxed out, I'm staying in a youth hostel on, like, $80 a day.
Tom Wambsgans: Jesus. How squalid. Dude, are you carrying dog shit?
Greg Hirsch: No... No, it's uh... It's free, right? Is that cool? I mean, I don't want to be melodramatic, but my body is growing weak due to a lack of sustenance.
Tom Wambsgans: (bewildered) But in a dog poop baggie?
Greg Hirsch: Yeah, I have a bunch of 'em from back home...
Tom Wambsgans: Greg, that's disgusting.
Greg Hirsch: Not really. It's not like they pre-poop them or something, like, it's not like... They're just bags, really. It's just a mental barrier.

Gerri Kellman: Hey. We're down two more points.
Kendall Roy: Fuck.
Gerri Kellman: Listen, Sandy Furness is here.
Kendall Roy: What do you mean?
Gerri Kellman: I mean he's here, in the building.
Kendall Roy: He can't do that. Fucking Pepsi doesn't just drop in to see Coke.

Kendall Roy: You know sometimes when you leave the party and you wonder what everyone's saying about you?
Roman Roy: With me it's usually "Who's that young Han Solo and how do I get his dick in my ass?"

Sad Sack Wasp Trap [1.04] edit

Frank Vernon: You sure it was him?
Kendall Roy: You think a lot of people come in here and take a piss?
Gerri Kellman: Maybe someone spilled something.
Kendall Roy: Yeah, maybe the massive fucking ice sculpture I forgot about melted. It's urine.
Roman Roy: This isn't a false flag, is it? Did you piss on your own floor?
Kendall Roy: Why are you looking like that? W-what if people knew? Gerri, you gotta talk to him.
Gerri Kellman: What do you want me to say?
Roman Roy: Well, first tell him where to go pee pee and poo poo.
Kendall Roy: He came in, he was talking to Stewy. What's he gonna do next, start jizzing in my coffee? Take a dump on my iPad?

Kendall Roy: Jesus, Roman, you're a walking fucking lawsuit.

I Went to Market [1.05] edit

Greg Hirsch: I'm in Canada.
Tom Wambsgans: Excuse me? Canada? Canada, with the healthcare and the ennui? Why's that, cocksock?
Greg Hirsch: Um... I'm driving my grandpa down for Thanksgiving.
Tom Wambsgans: Oh, Greg, fuck your grandpa.
Greg Hirsch: Okay, you're on, you're on speakerphone, Tom.
Tom Wambsgans: [long pause] Well, I shouldn't be, Greg.

Roman Roy: I went to the market and I bought a crack pipe...
[everyone groans]
Connor Roy: That's terrible.
Roman Roy: No? All right. I went to the market and I bought a gimp suit.

Ewan Roy: This whole family is a nest of vipers. They'll wrap themselves around you, and they'll suffocate you.
Greg Hirsch: I'm pretty sure...[elevator door closes] I'm pretty sure that's boa constrictors.

Tom Wambsgans: And I'm thankful that I am going to be marrying into one of the most vital and interesting and kind and loving families in the world.
Roman Roy: Are you not going to be marrying Shiv anymore?

Frank Vernon: Ever hear of loyalty?
Kendall Roy: Sure. Wasn't he one of the seven dwarves? No?
Frank Vernon: Oh...
Kendall Roy: Oh, he's a rapper. He was in Wu-Tang?

Which Side Are You On? [1.06] edit

Logan Roy: That was your best shot. You lost.

Frank Vernon: Is it wise to fire the board with the share price this weak, heading into a political fight?
Logan Roy: Take it like a fucking man. You're out. You're fucked. You tried to kill me, but you failed. And you're dead. Now, fuck off!

Kendall Roy: Can I count on your vote for team future?
Stewy Hosseini: I can promise you that I am spiritually and emotionally and ethically and morally behind whoever wins.

Austerlitz [1.07] edit

Connor Roy: This family's broken. And that has consequences. A missed phone call today, a couple dozen kids lose their jobs in China. Butterfly wings, but bigger, huge wings. Like a pterodactyl, or the Smithsonian. So...[raises glass in toast] ...let's fix our wings.
Roman Roy: Barely comprehensible.

Shiv Roy: So what happened with the fake therapy? Any pretend breakthroughs? Any good performances?
Connor Roy: Nothing. Our therapist died.
Shiv Roy: What?
Connor Roy: Metaphorically speaking.
Tom Wambsgans: He smashed his teeth out in the pool.
Shiv Roy: Oh, my god...
Tom Wambsgans: Freud would have had a field day.

Stewy Hosseini: This is a family business... but the family is fucked and it's hurting the stock.

Logan Roy: [to his daughter Shiv] You're marrying a man fathoms beneath you because you don't want to risk being betrayed. You're a fucking coward.

Prague [1.08] edit

Tom Wambsgans: So, does that mean we're able to... fuck here?
Roman Roy: Yeah. Hey, Ken, what do you think of the pussycat? On it?
Kendall Roy: No, not me. Business is my fucking.
Roman Roy: Great. I'll find you a Bloomberg terminal to stick your dick in.

Pre-Nuptial [1.09] edit

Sandy Furness: You can't make an omelette without breaking a few dicks.

Nobody Is Ever Missing [1.10] edit

Logan Roy: Tell Sandy you're out. Tell Stewy the thing looks like shitshow. Go to the desert, dry yourself out. You have not been yourself.
Kendall Roy: [tearfully] There's nothing... I don't, I don't think, um... I wasn't there, so...
Logan Roy: This could be the defining moment of your life. It'd eat everything. A rich kid kills a boy, you'd never be anything else. Or, y'know, it could be what it should be: nothing at all. A sad, little detail at a lovely wedding where father and son are reconciled.
[Logan opens up his arms and Kendall breaks down sobbing]
Logan Roy: [hugging Kendall] You're my boy. You're my number one boy.
