Then, in a perfect twist of fate, he meets Barry (Steve Carell), an unwitting IRS agent with a love for taxidermy and a private collection of "mousterpieces." Tim can't resist such an easy ticket to the top and invites Barry to dinner. Unfortunately, the consequential mayhem that ensues seems only to lead Tim on a downward spiral towards rock-bottom.

Tim: You invite idiots to dinner and make fun of them?
Williams (Larry Wilmore): Mmm-hmm.
Tim: That's...messed up.

Kieran (Jermaine Clement): Do you have any idea what it's like Tim, to be up to your elbow in a zebra's vagina?
Tim: No.
Kieran: You should try it Tim, it's magical.

Barry: Ahh, yeah. I'm okay. Is that a Porsche?
Tim: Yeah.
Barry: Oh wow...I have been hit by a Datsun before, but never a Porsche.

Tim: In the words of John Lennon, you may I'm a dreamer, but I'm not.

Tim: [chuckles] Okay Tim.

[Motioning to a picture of Kieran shaking Nelson Mandela's hand.]

Kieran: Julie's not a penguin, she's a lioness. Don't try to mate a lioness with a penguin, ever. Have you ever seen a mammal and a bird mate? I've never even heard of that.

Barry: So do you guys want to get pizza?
Darla (Lucy Punch): I want to lick cheese off of your naked body.

Therman: I just need to hear Barry say you can eat my pudding.

Barry: [murmuring] I have gonorrhea-I got gonorrhea from my wife, who got it from a bus seat.

Barry: Just to be clear, what exactly are we talking about?
Kieran: Everything.

Barry: Well I try to look at the bright side. I guess you could say I'm internal optometrist. When life gives you lemons, you make lemonade-unless you don't have any water or sugar. Then you just eat the lemons, and the rind will give you diarrhea. So...mamma-mia, poppa-pia, baby's got the dairh-hey Tim!

Lewis' Ventriloquist Wife: My god it's raining men. I don't know who's more gorgeous.
Barry: Well beauty is only skin deep-unless something is wrong with your bone structure. Then you could have flawless skin and still be very ugly-because your bones were just...gross.

Lewis' Ventriloquist Wife: Were you looking down my dress?
Tim: No.
Lewis' Ventriloquist Wife: Why not?
Barry: Tim, were you? Please don't embarrass me.

Therman: Brain control? There ain't no such thing as brain control. There's mind control-brain control is ridiculous.

Barry: And you put a little hat on it. And you call it Sammy.
Therman: Nobody is supposed to know that!

Barry: These people invited us here to make fun of us; this is a contest for the biggest idiot-which I nailed!
