Is any of it real? I mean, look at this. Look at it! A world built on fantasy. Synthetic emotions in the form of pills. Psychological warfare in the form of advertising. Mind-altering chemicals in the form of... food! Brainwashing seminars in the form of media. Controlled isolated bubbles in the form of social networks. Real? You want to talk about reality? We haven't lived in anything remotely close to it since the turn of the century. We turned it off, took out the batteries, snacked on a bag of GMOs while we tossed the remnants in the ever-expanding Dumpster of the human condition. We live in branded houses trademarked by corporations built on bipolar numbers jumping up and down on digital displays, hypnotizing us into the biggest slumber mankind has ever seen. You have to dig pretty deep, kiddo, before you can find anything real. We live in a kingdom of bullshit. A kingdom you've lived in for far too long. So don't tell me about not being real. I'm no less real than the fucking beef patty in your Big Mac.

Mr. Robot Season 1 Episode 10 Quotes

Shoe Salesman: You sound just like them. Have some moral fiber and leave their asses. Their practices are well-documented and it's all despicable. Listen, this isn't my business, but don't drink their Kool-Aid.
Angela: Look I just needed a job.
Shoe Salesman: What kind of an excuse is that?
Angela: You don't understand.
Shoe Salesman: You should hear yourself...
Angela: I don't know who you think you're talking to, but I'll try the Prada's next.

James Plouffe: You want me to be honest?
Reporter: Of course.
James: You're right, absolutely right. The public should be worried. I mean, personally, my life is over. My pension, savings, everything has been in this company since I started here and that's all gone now. Truth is, I've been with the engineering team all week and no one knows how to fix it. In fact, about the only thing they do know for certain is that this will be impossible to fix.
