(after finishing their burger-and-fries meal at Gettysburger on a date)
"That was ... incredible."
"What do you think their secret sauce is made out of?"
"Crack. I think it's made out of crack."
"Hearing my husband say that... it made my blood boil. Here he was, putting his life at risk so American businessmen could line their pockets. I wanted to say something, voice my rage, tell my husband to get the hell out of there... but I didn't. I bit my tongue because we are not our husbands' keepers. 14 hours later, a Taliban sniper put a bullet through my husband's neck, severed his carotid artery, killed him almost instantly. I didn't blame the shooter. I didn't even blame the government or the energy companies. I blamed myself. I had an opinion, and I didn't voice it. I kept my mouth shut, and I swore that day that I would never again be silent. I became a United States Senator, I became the Vice President of the United States of America, and I plan to become the President of the United States, because no, we are not our husbands' keepers, but maybe we should be America's. Next question."
"He didn't know how to stand on his own two feet. I mean, I saw the potential. We all saw it. But I had to work at it. I held his hand, I fluffed, I bled, & I got nothing in return. Except for you. You showed up. I wasn't devastated, Olivia, or numb or empty. I was deserving. I deserved you. I was a 37-year-old governor's wife with two kids, & that was all. I was somebody's wife & somebody's mother. Not my own anything. I deserved you. I warranted you. I justified you. I had lost myself, & in return, I got you. You are my retribution. And it was humiliating. I couldn't even hate you. I couldn't even pretend to. I hated myself. But then I turned a corner. It was quick. Effortless, really. You had become the beautiful kept thing he lusted after. Where you went, he went. Which meant that I suddenly had space. I had air of my own that I could breathe, time to think & plan, & I started liking myself again because I was alone & I was relieved. And I was free. Freedom, baby."
"I used to wonder if it was all men or just Fitz that sucked the life out of you. Now, I think it's all the powerful men. They've been told their whole lives they deserve everything, that they should have everything, and it makes them so weak. They think that everything belongs to them by default, and if they don't get it, they just fall apart."
"Truth is, I was glad you were there. You were a good mistress. Probably a great one. You know what I mean?"
"Well, I am an overachiever. Once I put my mind to something, I commit."
"You placed Olivia in a dangerous position. You outed her. You thought, by throwing me out of the White House and moving her in, you'd be making this grand gesture. Finally, she wouldn't be just a mistress anymore. But the minute she stepped foot through these doors, the minute she moved in here, she became what we all become when we live here. And what is that? Yes, a statue. Inhuman. Discussed from every angle, viewed, exposed. She's not just a mistress now. She's America's mistress."
