Ryan: Tell me you're not taking this seriously.
Craig: That's why I brought the entire company in from the road, because we're not taking it seriously.
Ryan: There is a methodology to what I do. There is a reason why it works.
Craig: Coke and IBM have been doing this for years, all right. Are you familiar with them? Now just like anything else, you know, it's gonna take a few months of sort of transition and then everybody is gonna settle in.
Ryan: Who are you taking off the road?
Craig: How are you not getting this? You're grounded. Everybody's grounded. It's done.
Ryan: What we do here is brutal, and it does leave people devastated. But there is a dignity to the way I do it.
Craig: By stabbing them in the chest instead of the back, is that right?
Natalie: You wanted to see me?
Ryan: Yeah. You know what? Yeah, come on in. Come on in here.
Craig: Great job out there, Natalie.
Natalie: Thank you. How's everyone taking it?
Ryan: Great. Listen, I admire your... Your zeal. And I think you have some very good ideas. But you know nothing about the realities of my industry. You can set up an iChat, but you don't know how people think.
Natalie: Actually, I minored in psychology.
Ryan: Nice. Okay, kiddo, fire me.
Ryan: Well, since she's gonna be doing this on a regular basis, don't you wanna know if she can fire somebody?
Craig: She's fired Ned.
Ryan: My dog can fire Ned. Fire me.
Craig: You don't need to do this.
Natalie: No, it's okay. I got this. Mr. Bingham, I regret to inform you that your position at this company is no longer available.
Ryan: Who the hell are you?
Natalie: My name is Miss Keener. I'm here today to discuss your future.
Ruan: My future? The only one who can fire me is Craig Gregory.
Natalie: Mr. Gregory hired me to handle this for him.
Ryan: Handle what? Handle me? Mr. Gregory hired me, he's the only one who can fire me. You know what? I'm gonna go talk to him.
Natalie: Mr. Bingham.
Ryan: No, no, no. You can't follow me. You're on a computer screen, remember?
Ryan: All right. Let's try this again. Fire me again.
Natalie: I just did.
Ryan: Actually, you didn't. Fire me.
Craig: That's enough. I think we get it.
Natalie: Mr. Bingham, I'm here today to inform you that your position is no longer available.
Ryan: I'm fired?
Natalie: Yes, you're fired.
Ryan: Never say fired.
Natalie: You've been let go.
Natalie: This is a mythical situation. How could I possibly know why?
Ryan: Why doesn't matter. You never know why.
Natalie: It's important not to focus on the why and rather to spend your energy thinking about your future.
Ryan: Well, I'm gonna spend my energy on suing you unless you give me a good reason why you're firing me.
Natalie: Mr. Bingham, the reason's not important.
Ryan: So, you're firing me without grounds? Now I really have a lawsuit.
Craig: I get what you're trying to say, Ryan.
Natalie: Don't take this personally, Mr. Bingham.
Ryan: Personally? This is the most personal situation that you are ever gonna enter, so before you try to revolutionize my business, I'd like to know that you actually know my business.
Craig: That's a hell of a way to welcome her to the team.
Ryan: Am I the only one that sees that by doing this we're making ourselves irrelevant?
Craig: No, frankly, we're making you irrelevant.
Craig: Don't blame me. Blame the high fuel costs. Blame insurance premiums. Blame technology. You know, you better watch yourself. You're a little too young to become a dinosaur.
Ryan: I'm not a dinosaur.
Craig: I want you to show her the ropes.
Ryan: What do I know what goes on here? Get Ferguson to do it.
Craig: I'm not talking about here.
Craig: Yeah. Come on. You're very, very confident this girl doesn't know what she's doing, so...
Ryan: Well, I'm sorry. I don't think a MySpace page qualifies you to rewire an entire company.
Craig: Well, then great. Here's your chance. Go out there, show her the magic, take her through the paces.
Ryan: I'm not a fucking tour guide. Now here we go.
Craig: Bingham, here's the boat. And here's you. Do you want to be in the boat?
Ryan: Yeah, alone.
Craig: We're ringing the bell. We're rounding everybody up. You want to stay out there a little bit longer, you're welcome to do it, but you will not be alone, okay? You let me know.
