TV Quote of the Day (‘Veep,’ With Perhaps Its Most Devastating Insult of Jonah Ryan)

[In the frantic effort to monitor the Nevada Presidential vote recount, White House aide Jonah Ryan grows splenetic over taking a back seat to cheery recount specialist Richard Splett.]

Jonah Ryan [played by Timothy Simons]: “You guys have Michael Jordan sitting on the bench here, but you're starting Hakeem Olajutwat.”

Amy Brookheimer [played by Anna Chlumsky]: “You are not Michael Jordan. You are a seven-foot-seven, goony-looking Lithuanian who's gonna drop dead of Marfan syndrome. Get your ass in the car.”—Veep, Season 5, Episode 2, “Nev-AD-a,” original air date May 1, 2016, teleplay by Lew Morton, Armando Iannucci, and Alexis Wilkinson, directed by Chris Addison
