Elsbeth: "It's like a three-legged stool. You knock that last one out, the CAS falls over."
Kalinda: "Sweet. Oh, and I think your transport is here, too... Why are you suddenly laughing hysterically?"
Elsbeth: "Turns out I fucking hate depending on other people."
Kalinda: "Sister, you have no idea."
FLORRICK @ MINORITY RIGHTS COALITION
"Now, we all know that I have made mistakes, but I want to learn. That's why I'm here speaking to you..."
There's a neat thing in this scene where Eli/Jordan's ongoing negotiations with Maddie Hayward are foregrounded, like a three-legged stool of power plays, so you don't even really hear much of Peter's speech ... until you notice that he is getting booed like Romney all of a sudden.
"My office... prosecutes more African-Americans than any other group, and I want to know why... President Obama... promised a discussion on race in this country. We've never had it..."
I guess if it were any other kind of rally there would be some kind of scary proto-riot that would cause Eli and Jordan to hurry Peter offstage, but if you think about it for a second I think you can see why that doesn't happen here. The funny part is that Peter continues to not give a fuck, the entire time. Like, since he doesn't get ushered offstage he just keeps acting like What, like he dropped the mic. Jordan is appalled.
Jordan: "Eli, you should listen to me more."
Eli: "I know! But I hate that!"
CAMPAIGN BUS A BIT LATER
Alicia: "Hold up. Did you almost start a race riot just now?"
Peter: "Don't be silly, they're just a passionate people. How's it going?"
Alicia: "Do you have time for sex?"
Yes, turns out. They do it standing up and barely moving, because that's how this show thinks people mostly do it.
I mean, obviously it's just a way for them to have crazy-hot sex on this show and still be on CBS, and they are not wrong -- consider the fact that, just like in every other kind of scene on this show, it's 90% whatever is going on with Alicia's face anyway -- although nothing so far has hit that one time with Will, which raised the bar pretty high. Still, it's funny to think about how in Chicago they do it mostly standing up, wearing winter wools, and holding mostly very still above the waist. Chicago Style ain't just a pizza anymore you guys.
Alicia: "Well, that was great. Seeya on the flip."
