Tom: “Why? Because she brought a ludicrously capacious bag.”

Greg: “What's...”

Tom: “What's even in there, huh? Flat shoes for the subway? Her lunch pail? I mean, Greg, it's monstrous. it's gargantuan. You could take it camping. You could slide it across the floor after a bank job.”

Greg: “Well, whatever.”

Tom: “She's used all the display towels in the bathroom and now they're sopping wet. She's gabbling about herself and posting on social media, she's asking people personal questions, and she's wolfing all the canapés like a famished warthog.”— Succession, Season 4, Episode 1, “The Munsters,” original air date Mar. 26, 2023, teleplay by Jesse Armstrong, directed by Mark Mylod
