Olive has hired Emerson to find out who killed a jockey she used to know. Ned is worried about whether it's a bad idea to have someone they know as a client. Emerson thinks differently:
Emerson: Hang on a second, let me ask the money. (Pretends to be on the phone) Hey, money. It's me, Emerson. I'm good, I'm good. Thanks for asking. Say, can I still pay my bills and buy stuff with you even though you were Olive's money first? Uh-huh.
Emerson:Yeah, okay then. (Chuckles to himself) Thanks. (Pretends to hang up, becomes serious again) The money don't care. Touch him.
- Emerson has a lot of these, like this famous exchange from the pilot:
Ned: It's a random proximity thing.
Emerson: Bitch, *I* was in proximity!
