Estes: "Carrie, can I just say something?"
Carrie: "Is it sorry? Sorry for firing you and calling you insane and treating you like we never had an affair and taking everybody's word over yours and causing you to very nearly commit actual suicide in the past week?"
Estes: "I mean, it's all water under the bridge, right?"
Carrie: "Yeah, buddy. It's fine."
Estes: "And you're doing a great job. I mean it. Especially given all the impediments and roadblocks you've been thrown. Such as myself. A roadblock that itself can hurl infinite roadblocks."
Saul: "Looks like Congressmen make contact with around 43 people a day, typically."
Quinn: "That is too many!"
Saul: "We have to prioritize. First, the darker-skinned people..."
Max: "That's straight-up racial profiling!"
Saul: "No, it's straight-up actual profiling. Do you not know what we do here, at the CIA?"
Max: "...Haha, no. I know. I just thought I'd beat the dumber of our liberal white viewers to the punch, so you could explain aloud why their complaints about this show are usually demonstrations of the very essence of privilege."
Dumb White Person: "This show is basically 24. Which I also watched, and loved, and enjoy bitching about self-righteously to this day. For some people, awful people like myself, it's all part of the experience. I mean, everybody knows -- among the people who don't know the difference between prescriptive and descriptive entertainment, or fiction and reality -- that Homeland is just propaganda for American exceptionalism and also for fascism!"
Less Dumb White Person: "Yeah, just like how Philadelphia is a commercial for getting AIDS."
Darker-Skinned Persons With Whom The Congressman Has Conversed
Rashid Fadl: Works at Constitutional Car Wash. From Yemen, on an expired visa.
Paris Kimbe: Cab driver, Sudanese. Belongs to the same YMCA as Car Wash Rashid.
Hamza Shabazi: Grad student, blogs about Islamic women, asked Brody to read her thesis. Clearly the worst, but not a suspect.
(Roya Hammad: Is on the board, but not on this list. Being famous lightens your skin, everybody knows that. It's from being looked at by so many people.)
