The men of 'Veep' offer up their characters' spirit quotes in GQ
Reid Scott's spirit quote: "More apologizing, really? I apologized less after banging my brother's fiancÃ©e."
On "Veep's" expletive fetish: "It's hard to work every day with this incredibly creative profanity and not let it creep into your life a little bit. We always talk about how we come home and go on, like, a two-week profanity cleanse."
Timothy C. Simons' spirit quote: "I work hard and I play hard, b****. That's my credo. I got that s*** tattooed on my d*** with room to spare."
If Simons had to work with his character, Jonah: "I'd f***ing despise him. He sort of embodies a lot of the qualities that I truly loathe in people. Like overexaggerated sense of self and importance."
Matt Walsh's spirit quote: "I'm eating everyone's s***. I'm like the last guy in a human centipede with this."
On "Veep's" lessons: "I've learned a lot of what you're fighting for is wording. Like, on a highway bill, 'and the shoulders' adds a billion dollars of funding. I'm even more exhausted by politics than I was before."
Tony Hale's spirit quote: "We need to rain down the full might of our nuclear arsenal on Finland."
On playing sad sacks: "Buster was, like, the lowest level, and Gary is a little bit higher. Maybe next time I'll be able to carry a conversation with a normal human being."
"Veep" airs Sundays at 10 p.m. ET/PT on HBO.
