Most of life is hell. It’s filled with failure and loss. People disappoint you, dreams don’t work out, hearts get broken, innocent journalists die. And the best moments of life when everything comes together are few and fleeting. But you’ll never get to the next great moment if you don’t keep going. So that’s what I do. I keep going.

I’m just sick of it all; that’s what’s going on. I am sick to death of the bullshit and the egos and — of the men. I am sick of the men. Just one time — just once — I would like to accomplish something in this city without having to spend all of my energy navigating the short-sighted, selfish, self-involved, and oh-so-fragile male egos that suck up all the oxygen in this town.

It makes me so sick, Douglas, so sick I could puke for days.

Elaine is a BAMF! WHY CAN'T SHE BE A REAL POLITICIAN?!?! Also, I HATE this asshole Vice President.
  • Elaine Barrish Hammond:Even you are smart enough to know that neither confirming nor denying is the same as confirming...For instance, if I said "I can neither confirm nor deny that Vice President Collier is a PISSY LITTLE SHIT who just sent 3 people to their deaths because he wasn't the one picked to resue them," what would you take it to mean?
  • Vice President Collier:No need to get personal Elaine.
  • Elaine Barrish Hammond:You made this personal Fred. When you were passed over to meet with Haacom.
  • Vice President Collier:I won't lie to the American people! I'm not Bud Hammond!
  • Elaine Barrish Hammond:YOU'RE GOD DAMN RIGHT YOU'RE NOT! *slams the phone down* Honestly. IDIOT.
