Quote from George Michael

George Michael: Hey, guys. Yo. Hey. All right, question: How many of you wake up with a knot in your stomach? Right. Me, too. But I like to think of that knot in my stomach as a little ball of energy. You know, it keeps me frightened when I should be calm. It pumps adrenaline through my veins when ordinary blood is what I need. But, you know, all of these things can create a winning spirit. One that I would like for all of you to share in. So that we can turn those knots in our stomach into why-nots. You know? People say there there's no such thing as privacy on the Internet. Well, why not?
Man: Why not?
George Michael: Yeah. Right. People say no one can build a completely impenetrable wall. Why not?
Employees: Why not?
George Michael: And, you know, people say you shouldn't start a company without cracking the technology that supports the flagship product of the company. For obvious reasons. Well, why not?
Employees: Why not?
George Michael: And what if you find out you're never gonna get paid, there is no product, and you're like, "Well, we can't let him get away with this." Well, why not? [employees murmuring]
Narrator: That may have been a step too far. But it wouldn't matter, because Maeby had just gotten some good news.

Quote from Michael

Michael: Hey. I got you an office-warming gift. I guess now it's an office-closing gift, but take a look at this. Your first paycheck at the banana stand. Look at that. Oh, I just wanted to frame up the the first one as a reminder of the value of a an honest day's work.
George Michael: It's funny, I don't remember ever getting a paycheck from-
Michael: You didn't. No, I couldn't give this to you because you were underage. In fact, I couldn't pay you, period, as an employee without getting in trouble with the government. I think we had you coded as a topping. No, in fact, where is it? There it is, right there. "Payment of two drums of dried George Michael."
George Michael: "A cocoa-based, non-digestive"
Michael: "Colorant."
George Michael: I used to love those.
Michael: Yeah. I still do, kiddo.
