“I’d like you to meet my secret, Mexican family.”
Oh, for fuck’s sake. None of these people are secret or Mexican. These people are whiter than an envelope factory.
“You’re right. This is Team Mayer.”
You should make some trades. I think this team needs a rebuilding year.
“Nah. We’re a finely-tuned machine. All the way on the right there is Stubby Maybelline. He’s my personal croupier.”

I don’t get it.
“Those aren’t tattoos; they’re, like, notes I wrote to myself. ‘Pick up milk, bang Demi Lovato’ that sort of thing. Sometimes, I just doodle on him while I’m on the phone.”

Nice work if you can get it.
“Plus a truckful of fishsticks. You know the saying, ‘They’ll back the Brinks truck up to your door?’ Well, they did, but the truck was full of breaded cod or whatever the fuck it is.”
I’m going to go back to ignoring you until the next time you’re a Grateful Dead again.
“Cool. See you Friday in Boston.”
