Quote from Dina

Amy: Well, this sucks. Corporate's the one reducing hours. I'm just the one making the schedule.
Dina: Well, you can't really blame them for trying to cut costs in this world of online retail. Have you been to They sell everything we do, but at half the price.
Woman: Really? [walks off]
Amy: Okay, we have to stop talking about online retail in the store.
Dina: Look, if people here are pissed at you, that's their problem. Just shrug it off.
Amy: Well, that's easy for you to say, Dina. You're not the one that they're going to be blaming for taking away their pay.
Dina: Hell, if you want, tell everyone I made the schedule. I don't care if people hate me. In some sexual situations, I prefer it.
Woman: [returns] Excuse me, what is that website again?
Dina:, but if you want, I can send you a link, and then we'll both get a code that gets us 10% off our next purchase.

Quote from Dina

Dina: Listen, technology has been taking jobs for years. Think about what happened with bank tellers and ATM machines.
Jonah: It's just ATMs.
Dina: Exactly. It's only ATM machines now.
Jonah: No, you don't need the "machines."
Dina: Nobody needs the machines, but it makes our lives easier.

Quote from Sandra

Sandra: Hey Amy? I saw I only have 30 hours next week.
Amy: Yeah. Um, look, Sandra, everyone's hours have been cut.
Sandra: It's just a bad time for me. An identity thief stole my identity from the guy who stole it first, and the charges are racking up.
Amy: Oh, wow.
Sandra: And then, remember that Brazilian model who emailed me about opening a joint bank account? Well, that also went sideways.
Amy: Look, Sandra, um, I would help you if I could, but, um Dina made the schedule. Hey, Dina, um, do you think maybe you could throw Sandra some hours? It seems like maybe you cut too many. [winks]
Dina: Oh, yeah. No, sorry. The schedule I made is the schedule I made.
Amy: Come on, really? I mean, she's going through a lot right now.
Sandra: Yeah, I mean, my credit is only 60 and my Brazilian credit is two.
