The more southern Mickey gets, the hotter he is. Just putting it out there. Green socks or no.
Kalinda: "There are no other candidates, I checked. They all have strategists already, unless it's something local..."
Eli: "Not Mickey Gunn. I mean, maybe somebody new on the national level, but not somebody he knows is problematic."
Kalinda: "Maybe a celebrity?"
Eli: "No, he wouldn't put up with it."
Kalinda: "Oh, it's a Republican. He's flipping. That's why."
Eli: "Yeah, he was looking for a primary. Awesome, again."
Kalinda, zooming out: "On it."
Eli: "Mazel tov!"
Kalinda: "Um, okay?"
Alicia figures out, despite Ms. Cox's sneaky disguise, that she had LASIK before the climb because she didn't want to worry about contacts while climbing. LASIK, you may know, reacts poorly to decreased atmospheric pressure: Vision becomes blurry at high altitudes in the weeks following surgery.
Alicia: "Was your vision blurry, Ms. Cox?"
Alicia: "Isn't that why you had Mr. Cardiff's Sherpa carry you the last 1000 feet?"
Cox: "That's a lie! People keep saying that, but I wasn't carried!"
That's how you rattle her: By suggesting she didn't really earn it, in the end.
Timothy produces a sworn affidavit from Tenji Gelu -- the Sherpa in question -- who swears Ms. Cox never could have seen these events, period.
Cox, losing it: "He's lying! He was always lying, he hated me because I accused him of stealing my satellite phone!"
His Lordship finally throws Timothy a bone, regretfully agreeing that Cox has A) lost her marbles on the stand and also B) she was not actually a witness to anything in particular. (Meanwhile, half a world away, Tenji Gelu is still making prank calls to the Kardashians. Irony.)
Zach comes upon Alicia in the kitchen, attempting to cook while reading lawyer stuff, and helps her out with the cleaning. She assumes he has a deathly illness for helping, but no: He just knew she was trying to work. She hugs him -- "You are so adorable, you know it's gonna happen, just let it happen" -- and goes back to her stuff.
Alicia, without looking: "How's Dad?"
Zach: "He's good."
Alicia: "Are you good with him?"
Zach: "Am I? Yeah. I mean, you know."
Alicia, worried: "What?"
Zach: "Do you think I'm ... like him?"
Alicia: "Do I think you are? No. You're different. Very different. Why?"
Zach: "I just wanted to know."
