Season 2, Episode 8 -  Aired November 3, 2016

When the store becomes a polling place, Glenn and Dina get involved in a cover-up, while Amy works with Jonah to push back against Corporate's support for an anti-union candidate. Meanwhile, Mateo tries to keep his undocumented status a secret.

Quote from Jonah

Jonah: Hey, hey I don't know about youse guys, but I'm fed up with these corporate fat cats.
Amy: Not all warehouse workers are from 1950s Brooklyn.
Man: You know what, I'm fed up with these corporate fat cats too. I'll take one of those.
Jonah: Hey!
Jonah: She's a good broad, huh?
Man: And you're a good guy, Jonah.
Jonah: Thank you very much. I appreciate it.


Quote from Dina

Dina: Hey. I'm just reminding everyone to vote. We want a 100% employee turnout. A lot of people died so you could vote. Also, a lot of horses died. We always forget about the horses.

Quote from Mateo

Cheyenne: Guess who got a sticker.
Mateo: Oh, my God, really? [exclaims]
[Cheyenne puts a sticker on Mateo which reads "I votted"]
Cheyenne: I made it myself.
Mateo: Yeah. [removes sticker] I appreciate it. The thought, not the sticker, because it's useless. It's garbage. [puts sticker on Cheyenne] 'Kay?

Quote from Amy

Amy: So then, I took the S train from the docks to my mother's house in Flatbush.
Jonah: Hey, youse a good kid, respecting your mother like that.
Amy: Yeah, but sometimes, you got to say, "Hey, Ma, I'm going out with the fellas."
Jonah: Yeah.
Amy: "I'll see you at church."
Jonah: Oh. Oh, your guy's religious.
Amy: No, he goes to church to respect his mother's old-world values.
Jonah: Sure.
Amy: Obviously. That's the story.
Jonah: You know, don't take this the wrong way, but I feel like you've become a lot more fun since I've known you.
Amy: Thanks. And if I may return the compliment, I think you've become marginally less annoying.
Jonah: Hey, hey, hey. Don't make me blush in front of the fellas, huh?

Quote from Glenn

Glenn: Would you just listen?
Dina: No!
Glenn: Yes! If we line up the voters this way, they'll be shuttled towards the impulse buys.
Dina: There are going to be millions of new customers in here, and you're focused on the chewing gum? Why not funnel them towards, I don't know, the big-ticket stuff? Get your head in the game.
Glenn: Oh, my head is in the game. I've been here since 4:00 a.m. I've already had three meals.
Dina: It's not even 7:00. That's too many meals.

Quote from Jonah

Amy: They're trying to tell us who to vote for!
Glenn: I don't know what you're complaining about. I love getting mail.
Jonah: You don't think it's a little misleading? For State Senator: "Jack Peterson supports your right to work," which is basically just another way of saying "anti-union."
Glenn: Let's not use the U-word.
Jonah: While Gary 'Slick' Langham"...
Amy: "Slick." They're actually using the nickname his opponent gave him.
Jonah: Langham "has never gone on record as being pro-America."
Glenn: What's his problem?

Quote from Glenn

Amy: Look, Glenn, it just seems really shady. Are they even allowed to do this?
Glenn: Come on. It's not like anyone around here ever reads anything anyway.
Amy: Yeah, we do!
Jonah: That's ridiculous.
Glenn: Oh? What was the emergency safety memo I sent out last week about?
Amy: Um...
Jonah: The...
Glenn: See? Relax. It'll be fine. By the way, the answer was the building got an F in tornado preparedness. The inspector says this place is a house of cards.

Quote from Dina

Dina: Also, voting time is unpaid. Nobody paid those horses to die.

Quote from Cheyenne

Mateo: Cheyenne, can you keep a secret?
Cheyenne: Oh, my God. Not really, but go.
Mateo: Okay. A few months ago, I found out that I'm actually undocumented.
Cheyenne: Oh.
Mateo: Yeah.
Cheyenne: Okay. I don't know what that means.
Mateo: It means that I'm an illegal alien. [off Cheyenne's look] No, I'm... I'm human, who happens to live in the country illegally.
Cheyenne: Oh. That's your secret? I thought you were gonna tell me about how you're dating Jeff.
Mateo: Wait. You know about that?
Cheyenne: Yeah, but don't worry. I only told my baby, and she's not gonna tell anybody. She doesn't have any friends.

Quote from Glenn

Glenn: Beep. Beep. Java truck comin' through.
Dina: What're you doing?
Glenn: American coffee for these American heroes. Actually, the beans are from Rwanda, but the water's from the good ol' faucet in the men's room.
Dina: Well, as I'm sure Syd here will tell you, you can't give poll workers gifts. That's called bribery.
Syd: Oh, that's okay. Actually, I usually have a Danish with my coffee.
Both: Oh.
Dina: Yum.
Glenn: So do I. Yeah.
Syd: Fine, I guess I'll go buy myself a Danish.
Glenn: Have a heavenly snack.
