In honour of Succession’s final episode — 20 of the best and most brutal one-liners from every season of the cult-favourite show

Succession, the show that for four seasons has kept us enthralled, entertained and on the edge of our seats, is finally coming to an end (the long-awaited Succession finale is on tonight). And while we won’t spoil the storyline for anyone who hasn’t watched the series yet (although why you haven’t is beyond us) we have decided to round up a few of the most outrageous, most humorous and most brutal one-liners from across Succession‘s four seasons. What better way to honour the show that has been deemed one of HBO’s best-written to date?

From the ‘ludicrously capacious bag’ to ‘you can’t make a Tomelette without breaking some Gregs’, here are 20 memorable one-liners from Succession that prove why this show will go down in history.
