Izzard: "So you made the last assault on Everest with Mr. Cardiff? My goodness, that was not mentioned in Mr. Lambros's book."
Cox: "There were a lot of things not in Danny's book. Many of us in the climbing community were outraged at the many distortions."
Izzard: "Did you ever see Mr. Cardiff step over a body? Or take anyone's oxygen tank?"
Cox: "Of course not. As far as I could tell he was the perfect gentleman."
Alicia: "Ms. Cox, were you sleeping with Mr. Cardiff at base camp?"
Everybody: "Oh, hell no."
Will: "...Well, that didn't go so well. Where's Kalinda?"
Eli: "This is my associate, Kalinda Sharma. She's been helping me prepare for this meeting."
Mickey: "And these are my associates. I don't know their names, but they're very expensive. So let's hear it, Eli."
Day One: Eli meets the candidate and explains that scandals are owned by the first man in. "Breitbart owned the Weiner scandal. If Weiner had released those tweets with his spin, he would still be in office today." Really? I mean, didn't we see Weiner's spin? Wasn't it just like, "Look over there!" and variations on the definition of is? Actually, no, if that was going to work it would have had to be Weiner. True.
Day Two: "I don't ask your candidate to tell me everything -- because candidates lie -- but I do tell him we have to get the nanny's story straight so that she doesn't hop off to the National Enquirer."
Mickey's face: "Oh shit, you totally know."
Kalinda's face: "Yep. That's how you do it, bitch."
Day Three: Acknowledge there's entertainment value in a father of three sleeping with his nanny, and the goal is not to smother that value, but to harness it. An Adultery Spring, if you will: Just like Irish Spring, but with adulterers.
Mickey: "Good work? But you caught me leaving Burke's office because I was turning him down."
Kalinda & Eli: "Total lie."
Mickey: "No, but anyway, there's always going to be a nanny or a hooker or something. Or a dude, if they're a Republican. Mickey out."
Eli, kinda desperate: "Wait, let me try again!"
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?"
