Like the bard says... (44.03)

Bobby: A $50million investment in Rayveon Solar would allow the people to bypass Africa's failed electric grid in the way cellphones bypassed its phone lines. They'll be able to power homes, businesses, indoor farms. Like the bard says: save the bold moves for the brilliant players. That ain't you. And it sure as shit isn't anybody sitting around this table.

Shakespeare, as Bobby says. Unable to establish which play this is from. Someone will tell me…

Disorder in the house... (30.24)

Wendy: Are you ever coming to bed?

Chuck: I could try to sleep, but I know I won't. I didn't want to keep you up. I seem to have done that anyway.

Wendy: Mm. Jock?

Chuck: Yeah. It's that. Sure. But more than that, it's still Ira. I could be bounded in a nutshell and count myself a king of infinite space, were it not that I have bad dreams.

Wendy: You've reached Shakespearean levels of insomnia.

Chuck: It's disorder in the house.

Chuck is quoting Hamlet here. Act 2. Scene 2.
