THE TITULAR BITCOIN FOR EPONYMOUS DUMMIES
Alicia manages to sit still for most of the explanation of Bitcoin, which is to her credit considering any time technology exists in this world she gets flustered and starts pulling Baby Boomer mom shit. Nisa -- who is apparently still in the picture with Zach -- joins in a conversation about Bitcoins that is super fascinating and reiterates about how nobody knows who Mr. Bitcoin really is. Perhaps he's Japanese, maybe he's Irish, maybe he's some hot lady Kalinda's gonna sleep with. You just never know.
Alicia: "This stuff makes me feel so dated! Which is a choice I am making! It's part of my persona, which I've consciously chosen in order to let myself off the hook about interacting with the world in which I live! Rotary phones and pennyfarthings! IUDs that look like shit the DaVinci albino would be into! Meat in a gelatin mold! For dinner!"
Nisa: "Uh oh, she's going into Big Chill mode. I'm going to bounce. Love you."
Zach: "Love you too."
Alicia: "...Aaaaaand I'm back."
The Honorable... See? I already forgot.
The Hon. Peter Dunaway: "I'm kinda quirky!"
Bob Balaban: "Charmed, I'm sure. So we're saying that this unregulated currency is being used in a digital black market guaranteeing anonymity to money launderers, drug dealers, child pornographers, whoever. Whatever's awful. And so we think that Biggs should be in trouble because he's preserving Mr. Bitcoin's anonymity through the smokescreen of attorney-client privilege."
Alicia: "I don't think I would call attorney-client privilege a smokescreen, Your Honor."
Balaban: "Okay, but that's about communications with the lawyer, not the entire identity."
Alicia: "What if you were communicating about your identity?"
Balaban: "Anyway. They give up that right if they're doing crimes."
Alicia: "Which we don't know if they are yet."
Judge: "I am so damned quirky! But the privilege thing isn't going to cut it. Round One to Alicia."
