Some of my favorite quotes from this episode:

“Close your eyes. Take a deep breathe. Let it out. 'You can do this'... but he didn't say it like that... It was a direct order” - Tony Amos

“Software is a reflection of the people who build it. Software is supposed to integrate with life in order to solve a problem, but if the people writing the software don’t have the life experiences … then it leaves something lacking in the software.” - Tony Amos

“If someone expresses confidence in you, believe them” - Tony Amos
