The 15 Best "Succession" Quotes of All Time

Throughout its three short seasons on television so far, Succession has racked up quite a few outstanding quotes since its premiere in 2018. The lines are pretty fairly dispersed among its characters, too, creating a well-balanced room for each character to shine. Although almost every episode of Succession contains at least a few iconic lines, these are, in no particular order, the 15 best quotes of the show thus far.
