In January 2024, Succession won four Golden Globes – including Best Drama – from a record 13 nominations, cementing the truth in stone: no other show since The Sopranos has come close to its influence, impact and intelligence. Fuelled by the uncertainty of the global pandemic and the ugly political aftermath of the 2016 and 2020 U.S. elections, Succession’s premise is simple but devastating: rip a despicable yet powerful family apart using jaw-droppingly innovative and original one-liners, led by a wealth of top TV talent.

The Little Guide to Succession is an essential and hilarious read for fans of the Roy family and the rest of the business class ensemble’s infamous and now-iconic wicked wit and quickfire quips. All the best quotes here, ready to be deployed at your command from this compact celebration of Succession.

“You can’t make a Tomlette without breaking some Gregs.”
Tom, to Greg (emailed to Greg 67 times in one evening), season two, episode nine, “DC”.

“You’re a clumsy interloper, no one trusts you and the only guy pulling for you is dead. Now you’re just married to the ex-boss’s daughter and she doesn’t even like you. You are fairly, squarely fucked.”
Karl, to Tom, when he “respectfully” threw his hat into the ring for interim CEO, season four, episode four, “Honeymoon States”.

“You look like a dildo dipped in beard trimmings.”
Roman, to designer-stubbled Stewy, season two, episode two, “Vaulter”.

The number of times the word “fuck” is said throughout the show’s four seasons. That’s an average of 76 “fucks” per episode, or one every 1.2 minutes.
