Season 5, Episode 11 - Aired January 9, 2020
As Jonah takes up the cause of gender equality, some of the men at Cloud 9 rebel against the company's new female-led owner. Meanwhile, Dina and Garrett try to help Sandra stand up to Carol.
Quote from Dina
Dina: Ah, it's great. T-shirt activism. Anytime we cash in on a cause, it always means cha-ching, cha-ching. That's a cash register.
Jonah: Yeah, maybe it's a little calculated, but it's... It's promoting gender equality. That's... That's a good thing.
Dina: Well, let's take a look. Yup, $12.99. The similar style in the men's department: $7.99.
Jonah: Well, the... glitter's probably pretty expensive.
Dina: Oh, wake up, Jonah, this is the pink tax in action. Women have to pay more for clothes, razors, deodorant... I mean, that's why I use dog shampoo. 'Cause I know the truth. But I mean, this is great. We're gonna sell a ton of these. You should be very proud of yourself.
Quote from Amy
Jonah: It wasn't why I was doing it, but I really tapped into something here. These guys are really freaked out about the acquisition.
Amy: Yeah, everybody's freaked out. It's a freaky time. Just tell 'em to take it down and get back to work.
Jonah: Ah, but that'd kinda just be like a Band-Aid, wouldn't it?
Amy: Yeah, Band-Aids heal things. Why does everybody hate Band-Aids?
Quote from Glenn
Glenn: Okay, I've heard what you all are saying, um, but as a father of a daughter...
Garrett: Listen up, ladies, father of a daughter talking.
Glenn: Thank you. Of course I want the world to be better for Rose, but I want it to stay the same for me. Is that too much to ask?
Earl: That's all I want.
Dina: Yes, that's the problem.
Quote from Sandra
Sandra: Garrett, do you mind if I use your phone? My bus driver asked to use mine, and then he put it in his pocket and drove off.
Garrett: Sure, yeah. Oh, hey, I wanted to ask you. I got your wedding invitation, and the food options are savory or sweet? I was kind of hoping to have one followed by the other.
Quote from Dina
Amy: Okay, thank you everybody for coming! It has recently come to my attention that there are some men in the store who have some issues you would like to discuss.
Dina: What do men have to complain about? Their beauty standers are way lower, their clothes are designed for comfort, and they never had to watch Sex in the City.
Amy: That is a good point, Dina. It does sort of feel society is set up by and for men, and that any complaint really just sounds like whining... is what I hear Dina saying.
Quote from Cheyenne
Cheyenne: Oh, my God, you guys! I've been reading about feminism. Did you know that women make less money than men?
Cheyenne: That is [bleep] up.
Quote from Marcus
Amy: Look, there's no point in speculating about the future. So let's just calm down, and let me get through shift assignments.
Justine: I heard there might be a payout.
Amy: Heather, you're in Housewares.
Cheyenne: Well, I wonder how much.
Marcus: I heard four grand.
Garrett: How? Justine just said it.
Marcus: Rumors travel fast, Garrett.
Amy: Elias, if you could please just float between...
Glenn: I can't learn Chinese.
Marcus: Yeah, they're definitely moving us to China. That's what I heard.
Quote from Sayid
Amy: Why are the Hawaiian shirts out again?
Sayid: Because it's my time, Amy.
Quote from Justine
Amy: So you may have heard about the new ownership, but we're still Cloud 9, Zephra is just our new parent company.
Garrett: And just like any time a new parent comes into the picture, I'm sure it's gonna be smooth sailing.
Justine: I think it's cool that Zephra has a lady CEO. Or should I say "She-E-O"?
Amy: You don't need to. No.
Quote from Dina
Dina: Hey, Rodriguez, we have a problem.
Marcus: I thought I was gonna tell her.
Dina: It's my job to report issues to the manager. Marcus came to me with a problem with... Oh, you're gonna laugh, but I've forgotten what it was.
Marcus: Oh, come on. We're low on produce. Our distro guy said we haven't re-upped our contr...
Dina: Oh, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah. Okay, okay, okay, okay. So no new contracts until the acquisition is finalized, which means no produce deliveries, so today we are skewing a little husky. So we should be fine, but there is a chance that we may have a problem when the weekend kale-heads roll in.
