Alicia: (Quick visual check for weaponry.)
Jackie, tearing up!: "The two of us, I know we haven't always seen eye to eye, but I just want you to know how much... I'm sorry I doubted you, Alicia. Standing by Peter the way you're doing. He needs you now. And I'm just... I'm just so glad you're there for him."

Jimmy V: "Is this Eli Gold? I am Jimmy V. I run a political blog..."
Eli: "Let me just hand you over to absolutely anybody..."
Jimmy V: "No, I'm good calling you on your cell. Listen, I'm about to publish a story that a national magazine is sitting on a piece about Peter Florrick's latest indiscretion, and I want a quote from the campaign."
Eli: "Good Lord. Did Mandy Post do this?"
Jimmy V: "An anonymous tip."
Eli: "A lie, a defamatory one, and you need to think before you post anything actionable."
Jimmy V: "Is that the quote?"
Eli: "Oh, hell."
Jimmy V: "PoorAnarchy.com, all one word. One hour."
