Which is when you leave the room, because he's not being a lawyer right now, he's having a thing. Having a moment. Very different from the usual Will. You're entitled to take a moment, but when you stage it professionally like this it can have ramifications. The danger is in knowing the difference. Because the proper answer is very simple, and it goes:
"Yes, but reparations after the fact are nothing new. Danny's torture was a mistake, maybe avoidable and maybe not, and I'm not going to argue with you about whether it was necessary. But that doesn't mean we don't bring suit now. It doesn't mean you say Bygones, sorry I didn't have the information you were torturing me for, and it doesn't mean you go off on some wingnut thing about the smoke from the Pentagon and your unrelated pantyliner feelings about it. They did what they had to do, we're doing what we do next, and both of those things can happen."
Instead we're getting this from him: "Do you think anybody's being tortured? No. You're trying to fight an old war, Diane. Rumsfeld and Cheney are gone. They're writing books." Like this is purely politics and grudge -- because to him, it is -- and not about a single guy who got burned by the post-9/11 crunch. And you know what, it's Diane, he may well have a point. She could be fighting an old war and still complaining about the abuses of that time, but that isn't exactly a bad thing either. They're writing books now, but we gave their corrupt asses the leash to begin with, which means that somewhere along the way there was an old war we forgot to fight. There was a reminder we didn't write down, and it has to do with the government being in charge of everything, even how creepy they are.
Speaking of Lockhart-Gardner stress, who's that knocking on the door? Why it's Bob Lachness, the L/G insurance agent, and he is here to discuss with the partners Diane's request to the amount of their workplace insurance. Defined as suits from employees, quote "Sexual harassment, coworkers or bosses sleeping with underlings, you know, that stuff." Fifteen to Lockhart. You can actually see Will's spirit slowly breaking as the guy says this.
Lachness: "I can keep your cost low if you have everybody here take a sexual harassment class." Thirty love. They both get their game faces on and he's got about fifty things going on, on his face, and it's just really good how this goes down. Because especially given the energy in the room just a second ago, she can't be taking him to task or pulling any kind of rank on him, because they're equals and they love each other, but she can come around the back way and be like, "I'm not being a bitch, this is actually why this is a problem. You think you're special, you're not special."
