“A clumsy, awkward success is still a success.”

“It’s a simple idiot-proofing scheme that’s very effective. But no idiot-proofing can overcome a determined idiot.”

“On a scale from one to ‘invade Russia in winter,’ how stupid is this plan?”

“And if you want to make babies, somebody's got to get fucked.”

“By the way, we also hate it when people . . . call Artemis "the city in space." We're not in space; we're on the moon. I'm mean, technically, we're in space, but so is London.”
