"No no no no no no no," he mumbles, the lovers mutually horrified, as she beats it for the elevator. "What are you thinking? You don't do that. What's wrong with you? Oh my God, come on!" The elevator -- wasn't it going to be the elevator? -- comes, and she rushes on as the music laughs at her. "Oh," she spits, hand to her head, pissed and delirious: "Oh, you idiot." This is your brain on reality.
Eli: "Fine, I'll wear a wire, but I won't bring you Peter."
Muad'Dib: "But see, this is about Peter."
Elsbeth: "He can get you Jordan Karahalios."
Muad'Dib: "The number two? Why do I want number two?"
Elsbeth: "First of all because he is wonderful. Second of all, he's handling campaign finances. Get him, get everything."
Eli: "But nobody can know I'm doing this with you. I'll get murdered if anybody finds out."
Elsbeth: "That's a metaphor."
Muad'Dib: "Fine. Make this work."
Kalinda: "So in return for your tantrum, I can't work for you anymore. Have to pick a side. But here is an envelope of some random stuff I'm just going to leave here, okay?"
Cary: "Oh hey Alicia, you look nuts! Did you do something crazy last night and have to rush out of the building?"
Alicia: "Yeah, basically. What's in that envelope? The usual Kalinda magic stuff?"
David Lee: "Hey, fuckups. Alicia, can I talk to you for a second?"
Alicia: "What the fuck do you want, David Lee."
David Lee: "Oh nothing, just to offer you equity partnership and ruin your entire alliance. Oh, and get ahold of your capital contribution since that's all I ever talk about, and it'll also tie you to us financially in case you do make the jump."
Alicia: "Can I think it over?"
David Lee: "You may not. Don't put on airs."
Alicia: "Then I guess yes. Cary would say yes, right? And so would you and the rest of those ratbastards. The only one who would say no, in fact, is Alicia -- and she's apparently a dumbass who's no better than the lot of you -- so, yes. What about Cary?"
David Lee: "Cary's not married to the next Governor of Illinois, genius."
Muad'Dib: "Just talk in a normal voice..."
Eli: "HEY DID YOU EVER BREAK A LAW? ARE YOU GIVEN TO BRIBERY?"
Muad'Dib: "Yeah, so this should go great."
