Becca: You seem…upset. Eli: How is it that I can manage aldermen, judges and yet I still seem to have this ridiculous little mean girl thorn in my shoe? Becca: Maybe you’re secretly inlove. Eli: Haha..here’s the thing. I’m not gonna ask ‘cause I know you only lie, that’s ok. But as to make things easier. Becca: What things? Eli: When you’re asked..you did not sleep with Zach, you did not hook up with him, you did not have an abortion. You don’t have to think just say yes. Becca: Yes.And what if I did? Eli: What if you did what? Becca: Slept with Zach and had an abortion. Eli: Then we’ll have to discuss what was provable. Becca: Lake Drive Health Center, I was there on May 18th. Ooops, is that make your job harder? Eli: Listen… Becca: No Mr.Gold, I’m tired of listening. Have Zach phone me, I like Zach. I don’t want to make his life harder, I wanna make it easier. Eli: May 18th? Hmmm..working back he won’t showing so that means March, April conception. That’s when you’re sleeping with Mr. Hack, your after school college prep tutor. Yes, appauling isn’t? I investigate my opponents, too bad you don’t have the resources to do the same. So, whenever anyone asks whether you slept with Zach..what d'you say? It’s very easy. I know given your history it’s probably a new word for you but say no. Let’s try it. Becca: No. Eli: Good. Always a lovely Becca.
This is one of the reasons why I love Alicia Florrick
Mr. Landry: Mrs. Florrick I have one more question. Did you meet with a divorce attorney on Feb. 23rd? Alicia: Yes…I had a brief consultation with a divorce attorney a few days after the allegations against my husband surfaced, in order to weigh my options. Mr. Landry: Are you saying you’ve ruled out the possibility of divorce? Alicia: I have no plans to divorce. Mr. Landry: But you haven’t ruled it out? Alicia: I haven’t ruled out running for president. Probably won’t happen, but I haven’t ruled it out. Mr. Landry: So, you intend to welcome Mr. Florrick back into your home? Alicia: Yes. Mr. Landry: Despite the sexual dalliances with call girls… Alicia: My son is here, Mr. Landry. Mr. Landry: Are you suggesting you’d give different answers if he weren’t? Alicia: I’m suggesting you stop asking invasive and irrelevant questions. Mr. Landry: Isn’t it true… Alicia: What’s your goal here Mr. Landry? Mr. Landry: Mrs. Florrick… Alicia: To do your boss’ bidding? To embarrass me? Embarrass my husband? To goad me into some emotional public renunciation of him? The relevant question here is whether Peter has a suitable place to go home to. And I am stating under oath, that he does. Any further questions?
