Eli: "I feel like you're cheating on me."
Kalinda: "Only for money."
Eli: "We are so sassy. Hey, by the way, who has the power in this law firm?"
Kalinda: "Diane in criminal, Will in civil."
Eli: "How about the money?"
Kalinda: "Diane, but only by default, because Will hates dealing with it. Once bitten twice shy, I guess, when it comes to embezzlement."
Eli: "Does he mean it when he says no?"
Eli: "Even to me?"
Eli: "Aw, nuts."
Eli: "Okay, what about Julius?"
Kalinda: "He's not on this show much, so I don't know that he matters."
Eli: "Shouldn't the head of litigation not hate me? Why does he hate me?"
Kalinda, verbatim: "You're the new and shiny thing."
Eli: "Okay, but does it matter that he doesn't like me?"
Kalinda, hilariously: "...No."
Eli: "Anybody else with power?"
Kalinda: "David Lee, Family Law. Bitchy as hell. Pretty great, most of the time."
Eli: "And Alicia, where does she stand in all of this?"
Kalinda-Bot: Powering down.
Eli: "Alicia Florrick. Her place in this structure."
Kalinda: "She's a third-year associate. But yeah, she matters."
Eli: "Because of her husband?"
Kalinda: "Among, like, thousands of reasons. She can persuade people."
Eli: "You mean like Will?"
Kalinda: "See, you don't actually need me for this. What are you even doing."
Eli: "The hierarchy. Usually I can figure it out, but this place is like a mom-and-pop store."
Kalinda: "No, it's actually that simple because they keep pulling coups on everybody all the time, or the people have Alzheimer's, or they drop dead, or David Lee is mean to them. It's all about Will and Diane. Lockhart and Gardner. The end."
Eli: "The end?"
Kalinda: "Okay, I guess we're friends suddenly, so here's the real real shit. If you want to persuade Diane, you persuade David Lee. If you want to persuade Will, you persuade Alicia."
