Laura: "I'm unaware of all that, and think you're actually flirting with me. This new job is fun!"
Elsbeth: "Alicia! Boo! I need help. It is an Eli Gold issue."
Alicia: "You know we can't help with that. Especially now that I am an equity partner."
Elsbeth: "You can't help with the federal case, but I just invented a civil case you can help with."
Alicia: "Wait, how did a money-for-votes accusation from the DOJ somehow become..."
Elsbeth: "No, it's both. I'm doing both. No big deal, I'm just suing the head of the DNC."
Alicia: "Oh, is that all?"
Elsbeth: "He defamed. He was defamatory. Toward Eli."
Alicia: "Defamation cases are like, impossible."
Elsbeth: "Oh, we don't want to win. I just want Frank Landau on the stand so I can figure out what he's going to say in federal court."
Alicia: "That is some Elsbeth Tascioni shit right there. Okay, I'm in!"
CIVIL COURT SHAM
Landau's civil attorney is weeeeeird. From her clothes to her hair to her way of speaking, she is very much like Sean Young in Blade Runner.
Alicia: "I am not kidding around, Your Honor! We take this defamation very seriously!"
Nexus-6: "They are nakedly obvious! This is a sham!"
Alicia: "Anything but, Replicant!"
Judge Marx: "Stop screaming at me and let me work this out. You're talking about third-party defamation, correct?"
Alicia: "Yeah. He didn't print the comments, but he said them out loud and knew that people could hear him say this stuff."
Nexus-6: "We move to dismiss with prejudice, Your Honor..."
Perrotti: "No we don't. We want to use this case to further our federal one. And for flirting."
Judge Marx: "I hear you, and I hate you. This is not a federal court, and you have no power here."
Landau: "Yeah, I said it. I said I personally know that Eli Gold bought votes."
Alicia: "Why did you say that!?"
Landau: "It is totally true."
Alicia: "And so how do you know that?"
Perrotti: "Shut up! Don't say anything!"
Elsbeth: "What are you, gonna Wite-Out his face?"
Judge: "I don't care what you want, Perrotti. Siddown and shut it."
Landau: "To answer your question, I know this because I set up the meeting myself."
