We are breathing rare air here, operating at the limit for lossless compression
Recap of Silicon Valley Season 1 Episode 8 (S01E08) - 2
Hola, TechCrunch!
Recap of Silicon Valley Season 1 Episode 8 (S01E08) - 3
I mean, at best, we're a worse version of Nucleus.
Recap of Silicon Valley Season 1 Episode 8 (S01E08) - 4
act erratically, and blindly lash out at everything around us.
Recap of Silicon Valley Season 1 Episode 8 (S01E08) - 5
and then they pivoted to become a playground for the sexually monstrous.
Recap of Silicon Valley Season 1 Episode 8 (S01E08) - 6
We've got a great logo, and we've got a great name.
Recap of Silicon Valley Season 1 Episode 8 (S01E08) - 7
Hi! I'd like to talk to you about a company called Pied Piper.
Recap of Silicon Valley Season 1 Episode 8 (S01E08) - 8
Which one? Which one? Which one?
Recap of Silicon Valley Season 1 Episode 8 (S01E08) - 9
Yeah. It'd be a real dickhead move to bail on Richard now, right?
Recap of Silicon Valley Season 1 Episode 8 (S01E08) - 10
What if there was an app called Pied Piper that could tell you,
Recap of Silicon Valley Season 1 Episode 8 (S01E08) - 11
Gavin, you do not need to dignify any of this with a response!
Recap of Silicon Valley Season 1 Episode 8 (S01E08) - 12
This and all other Gavin Belson rumors are unsubstantiated.
Recap of Silicon Valley Season 1 Episode 8 (S01E08) - 13
Yes, let's all keep moving. Let's move on from this.
Recap of Silicon Valley Season 1 Episode 8 (S01E08) - 14
We both say it out loud and I think that fact,
Recap of Silicon Valley Season 1 Episode 8 (S01E08) - 15
So... do you guys think you could hire me?
Recap of Silicon Valley Season 1 Episode 8 (S01E08) - 16
- Hey... suitcase. Yeah. - Yeah.
Recap of Silicon Valley Season 1 Episode 8 (S01E08) - 17
because I thought you had a really great company.
Recap of Silicon Valley Season 1 Episode 8 (S01E08) - 18
I guess... I guess we won't see each other again.
Recap of Silicon Valley Season 1 Episode 8 (S01E08) - 19
- Uh... bye. OK. - Bye.
Recap of Silicon Valley Season 1 Episode 8 (S01E08) - 20
I'm pivoting!
Recap of Silicon Valley Season 1 Episode 8 (S01E08) - 21
Look, Erlich, I want to present, I do, it's just... I don't know.
Recap of Silicon Valley Season 1 Episode 8 (S01E08) - 22
because I was too busy getting my face pummeled
Recap of Silicon Valley Season 1 Episode 8 (S01E08) - 23
So that's 400 times whatever the mean jerk-time is.
Recap of Silicon Valley Season 1 Episode 8 (S01E08) - 24
- Oh... - From the middle out. That does make sense.
Recap of Silicon Valley Season 1 Episode 8 (S01E08) - 25
You know, if a guy's dick was long enough,
Recap of Silicon Valley Season 1 Episode 8 (S01E08) - 26
Recap of Silicon Valley Season 1 Episode 8 (S01E08) - 27
Recap of Silicon Valley Season 1 Episode 8 (S01E08) - 28
So when you stroke up you're not wasting any energy.
Recap of Silicon Valley Season 1 Episode 8 (S01E08) - 29
Recap of Silicon Valley Season 1 Episode 8 (S01E08) - 30
- The finals are starting. - Up!
Recap of Silicon Valley Season 1 Episode 8 (S01E08) - 31
Uh, technically, no.
Recap of Silicon Valley Season 1 Episode 8 (S01E08) - 32
Recap of Silicon Valley Season 1 Episode 8 (S01E08) - 33
Richard? Is this the right build? I can't find the mobile suite here.
Recap of Silicon Valley Season 1 Episode 8 (S01E08) - 34
- Pied Piper. You're on. - This is it!
Recap of Silicon Valley Season 1 Episode 8 (S01E08) - 35
Presenting for Pied Piper will be Richard Hendricks.
Recap of Silicon Valley Season 1 Episode 8 (S01E08) - 36
No. All The Carver's work is gone.
Recap of Silicon Valley Season 1 Episode 8 (S01E08) - 37
and another guy that has disappeared...
Recap of Silicon Valley Season 1 Episode 8 (S01E08) - 38
Um...
Recap of Silicon Valley Season 1 Episode 8 (S01E08) - 39
Uh, OK, so anyway, we all know that the most obvious way
Recap of Silicon Valley Season 1 Episode 8 (S01E08) - 40
And for decades, we used these codes to compress,
Recap of Silicon Valley Season 1 Episode 8 (S01E08) - 41
could one guy manipulate at once and, uh...
Recap of Silicon Valley Season 1 Episode 8 (S01E08) - 42
and when I did, we hit a Weissman score of 3.8.
Recap of Silicon Valley Season 1 Episode 8 (S01E08) - 43
Well, I'm sorry to interrupt your eloquent presentation, Richard.
Recap of Silicon Valley Season 1 Episode 8 (S01E08) - 44
- What do we got? - Does anyone have anything?
Recap of Silicon Valley Season 1 Episode 8 (S01E08) - 45
- Are you fucking kidding me? - Goddammit.
Recap of Silicon Valley Season 1 Episode 8 (S01E08) - 46
Come on, come on, come on...
Recap of Silicon Valley Season 1 Episode 8 (S01E08) - 47
OK, I mean it shouldn't take too long, it only compressed half the fucking file.
Recap of Silicon Valley Season 1 Episode 8 (S01E08) - 48
Wait a second. What's happening?
Recap of Silicon Valley Season 1 Episode 8 (S01E08) - 49
but with a confirmed score of 5.2, Pied Piper appears to have just doubled
Recap of Silicon Valley Season 1 Episode 8 (S01E08) - 50
I told you we'd do it! Come on!
