Oh, my God, if I, like...

- Excuse me? - You're rigid and stiff...

Hey, where's my journal?
Recap of Archer (2009) Season 2 Episode 7 (S02E07) - 15
Oh, come on. Haven't you ever snooped on somebody you thought was dreamy?

Recap of Archer (2009) Season 2 Episode 7 (S02E07) - 19
Oh. "Cut to Malory Steele, the 50ish and incredibly sexy CIA director..."
Recap of Archer (2009) Season 2 Episode 7 (S02E07) - 20
- That's where you come in. - Bad writing.
Recap of Archer (2009) Season 2 Episode 7 (S02E07) - 21
Yeah, but racist overtones aside, it really limits your casting options.
Recap of Archer (2009) Season 2 Episode 7 (S02E07) - 22
...not the embodiment of sexy, empowered womanhood that you've become.

- Ooh. What should we call it? - Dick Sledge.
Recap of Archer (2009) Season 2 Episode 7 (S02E07) - 24
I was invisible. He wouldn't even sign my cast when I broke my own arm.
Recap of Archer (2009) Season 2 Episode 7 (S02E07) - 25
Because he totally snuck up on me.
Recap of Archer (2009) Season 2 Episode 7 (S02E07) - 26
- Holy shit snacks. - Yeah. They said he could've gone pro.
Recap of Archer (2009) Season 2 Episode 7 (S02E07) - 27
...that this guy... Who, also, cannot be named Cassius.
Recap of Archer (2009) Season 2 Episode 7 (S02E07) - 28
I'm sorry, I shouldn't have said that. Mawp. But I'm under a lot of stress.

Oh, come on, I just wanna see if me and her have stuff in common, like...

...you forget it's in there.
Recap of Archer (2009) Season 2 Episode 7 (S02E07) - 33
Now, beat it. I'm on a mission.
Recap of Archer (2009) Season 2 Episode 7 (S02E07) - 34
- No. - Yes.
Recap of Archer (2009) Season 2 Episode 7 (S02E07) - 35
The forbidden love between Malory and Cassius is central to the plot.

But even though it's super-dangerous, I'm preventing World War III, so...

- If your aunt had balls, she'd be your uncle. - What?
Recap of Archer (2009) Season 2 Episode 7 (S02E07) - 39
Which is why shut up because I and Rona, am and are taking the mission.
Recap of Archer (2009) Season 2 Episode 7 (S02E07) - 40
But we're, like, keeping the world free for democracy...
Recap of Archer (2009) Season 2 Episode 7 (S02E07) - 41
Look, I took this call as a courtesy to Rona, okay?
Recap of Archer (2009) Season 2 Episode 7 (S02E07) - 42
Anybody doing a Mandingo sequel? When can you get me a treatment?
Recap of Archer (2009) Season 2 Episode 7 (S02E07) - 43
- Oh, yes. Take me. - Mm, mm.
Recap of Archer (2009) Season 2 Episode 7 (S02E07) - 44
You swallow it over, three days and you start to, you know, pass it...
Recap of Archer (2009) Season 2 Episode 7 (S02E07) - 45
Oh, yeah? While you're tangled up in a half-mile of shit-covered tape?
Recap of Archer (2009) Season 2 Episode 7 (S02E07) - 46
That's not all. If you order now, you'll also receive...

What voice is that? Is that from Bullwinkle?

Oh, my God, I can see my penthouse.
Recap of Archer (2009) Season 2 Episode 7 (S02E07) - 49
I just this second realized why you do macramé instead of knitting.
