If I was to give Tom a letter grade, I'd give him a B+ for Bad plus Terrible.


Tom: That was, that was all fucking me. They hit me from every fucking side.
Hugo. It's OK. Tom, you did good.
Tom: I didn't get enough resources spent on me. OK? What the fuck is going on?! I'm getting, I was fucked from every direction. Are you fucking me, Shiv?
Shiv: Tom.
Tom: I'm the patsy! I'm the meat in the sandwich. Gerri is the bulletproof Monk, Kendall and Logan are in reserve. I'm the meat in the fucking sandwich!

I just turned down a quarter of a billion, and now I'm going to jail forever because of this fucking guy, man! This fucking guy!


What a shitshow. What a fucking shitshow.


Aide: Is he OK?
Gerri: Low blood sugar.
Hugo: Could you, uh, give him a chocolate suppository? Just, uh, stick a Snickers bar up there?

Roman: And can I ask, not to make this all about us, but are they going to shoot us at any point?
Jamie: I am also intrigued on that point.

My father has a lot of sway. I mean, he can't lock his opponents up in a hotel, but uh, well, he kinda could.


I mean, should we see if maybe some of the other hostages want to cut a deal? This could be a bumper time for us.


Gil: Is that any way to keep the lifeblood of a democracy going by using news as your own personal ATM?
Kendall: Uh, if, if I may, um, I think you might be under a misapprehension, Senator. In this country, all news -- from the Times to the supermarket tabloid -- is for profit, sir. We don't have a state media. As I'm sure you know, you'd have to go to China or Russia for that.

Gil: Mr. Logan Roy, what did you personally know about the operation of a system of obfuscation of wrongdoing in your cruise division by means of keeping of shadow logs?
Logan: At that point, I believe my son was across that operation, wasn't he?
Gil: At which point?
Logan: At the point, he was across entertainment operations. You could talk to him.
Gil: Mr. Kendall Roy. Tell us about the shadow logs.
Kendall: I'm sorry. Madam Chairwoman, can I, can I speak for a moment? Because, you know, I'm here in good faith today. I'm very willing to talk you, Senator, and the committee through our operations, but, uh, let's cut the BS, shall we? Because it seems to me that this investigation, uh, is not about proper oversight of the cruise industry codes and standards or some highly regrettable but isolated incidents from nearly two decades ago. What this feels to me it's about is your personal dislike of my father and your ideological hatred of his newspapers and his news channels, and in particular, of the, uh, success story which is ATN on which you've appeared, I think, fourteen times in the last four months, Senator. Senator Eavis, it seems that since you don't agree with us ideologically, nothing we can say will be enough. No groveling will be low enough, and as much as you like to accuse of us of bias, uh, today you're the one with the bias. So, I say, go ahead. Hit us as hard as you can. We can take it. We have nothing to hide.

Shiv: What is it that you are trying to get? Because money? Money you can have. That's easy. Book deal. Interview appearances. We will give you millions of dollars, and I will destroy the men who ran that dirty operation. I will kill them for what they've done, and I want you to help me. We will be the best, cleanest operation in the world because of you if you help me do this. Would you help me?
Kira: Well, it sounds, uh, can I trust you?
Shiv: No. Actually, no. Kira, you're in a shitstorm of conflicting interests here. You can't trust anyone. You just have to be smart. So listen to everyone, and make an assessment, cause frankly, I want what's best for me. But the other people, the folks who want you to get up there tomorrow and get pulled apart? They want what's best for them. You need to think about what's best for you, huh?

Logan: You know, you're fungible.
Rhea: I am not fungible.
Logan: Oh, yes you are. You're as fungible as fuck.
Rhea: Fine. Then funge me. Go ahead. Try.

Succession Season 2 Episode 9 Quotes

Greg: Yeah. So, I think I just, uh, turned down a quarter of a billion dollars.
Tom: Uh huh.
Greg: Yeah, I'm gonna, I'm gonna make a drink. Uh, I think, I think I'm gonna, ca, ca, I can drink these drinks, right? These are drinks for people?
Connor: It looks like there might be a slight uptick in ticket sales.
Greg: Cuz Logan promised he'd look after me. So.
Connor: A quarter of a billion?
Greg: Mm hmm.
Connor: Instead you're trusting dad?

Wanna hear what I think? I think we say the truth. [pause] That the senior cadre here and the family knew nothing of this. So we throw Mo overboard. Mo, bad apple. Jim Weasel, bad apple. Spies a book deal, sort of OJ, backed by Sandy and Stewy, all corporate fucker. No real concern. And in terms of historic shit? I'm afraid we give up Bill because he should have let us know what he discovered rather than clean up without telling us the details. I don't think there's gonna be paper that shows anything beyond Bill.
