I Am Not The Cheese

Wendy Scott-Carr: "It is I! Special Prosecutor Wendy Scott-Carr! Are you scared yet?"
Dana & Cary: "Yes."
Wendy Scott-Carr: "It makes it seem like a good-faith move for Peter to give me this position, because I hate his ass so much. But really he's doing a double-move, because I am the scariest motherfucker alive."
Dana & Cary: "You seemed so nice on those ads. And it was tough watching you go through the whole jungle fever grossness."

Wendy Scott-Carr: "I am a caring mother and a conscientious public figure, those things are true. But it's also true that I gave myself cancer just to fuck Glenn Childs and Peter over, and I will give any motherfucker cancer if they dick me around. Starting with Will Gardner."

Dana & Cary: "You know this investigation isn't really about Will Gardner."
Wendy Scott-Carr: "It wasn't, fakely and nominally, about Will Gardner. But now I am here, and I am a goddamn loose cannon. I lost a very public, very ugly campaign despite being the best candidate, which means I have to start over making my bones, and this is how I am going to do it. Be better than Peter while working under Peter, which is what women have to do, but which also vindicates me retroactively and sets up the possibility of a future campaign. When you look at it that way, I have no choice but to destroy his wife. The thing he could never do."

Cary: "Please don't give Alicia cancer. I secretly like her."
Wendy Scott-Carr: "Some people just want to see the world turned to ash. I will burn Lockhart, Gardner to the ground and then salt the ground so no more briefs or motions will grow there. Peter Florrick will rue the day he rubbed this lamp."


Colonel Leora Kuhn, military judge presiding. She's the one that hates them because they are civilians and don't get it, and especially hates Will Gardner because he doesn't understand that gender doesn't exist inside her courtroom so all his tricks -- the cutesy Cary ones, the loud-voice Peter ones, the sneaky Eli ones -- don't matter, and just piss her off.

Kuhn is like the immune system of military justice because she doesn't want these idiots to see behind the curtain and throw their whining around. She knows the system, she knows the stakes, and she knows what you give up when you join up. And they can't understand these things, or else they would have: They are de facto meddling martinets, absolutely annoying and a pain in her ass no matter how much they try and fail to understand about this crazy Wonderland of military law. No matter how nice Alicia is, because nice doesn't fly here.
