Greg: “Would you ever drive a Bug?”
Doug: “Do I look like a guy who would drive a Bug”?

“I’m happier than a skunk in a rhubarb patch”
“Why are Haley and Trish doing karate? No one knows, but take a video and put it on Facebook.”
“Everyone wears a lot of hats and has a lot of irons in the fire so let’s just circle back at the end of the day.”
“Lenna got a lamp because she was throwing so much shade.”

“At the end of the day, we just need to put our thinking caps on and think outside the box so we can move the needle with a 30,000-foot view.”
