put your wife on a leash. i'm worried for james. yeah, i know what you mean. tell me what you need, and i will do it. abby and david can't be together. i can't tell you why, but they can't. her ex-husband used to beat her. you might want to use that. consider it handled. hospital photos of teresa dunn's injuries. i didn't touch her. you look like a good guy, but you're not! (projector and camera shutter clicking) there was shayna. she was an artist. we dated for five months, but she didn't like to read. that was an actual thing she said-- "i don't like to read," as if that is okay. so after her, i dated maggie. she loved to read. she did not, however, love to be monogamous. then there was paulette. edison, you've made your point. have i? because i still haven't heard a single detail about the men that you've dated since we broke up. there's nothing to tell. because you're so ugly no one wants to be with you. because there's nothing to tell. you won't be seen in public with me. what am i supposed to think? that every reporter knows my face, and it would become a story that you're dating a professional fixer. you're a united states senator. the focus should be on you.
edison. normal people talk. they share. that is how a relationship works. okay. you want me to tell you something? fine. but it's between us, and if i tell you, you can't ask ananquestions. are you in? i'm in. when something big happens in the senate today, you should be one of the first senators to make a statement of support. what? when something big happens in the senate today, you should be one of the firir senators to make a statement of support. this is you sharing? whoever he was, he really hurt you, didn't he? (cell phone rings) (ring) (ring) harrison. you're gonna have to handle it. you can handle incoming. i have that other meeting, and i'm late. wait. statement of support. we haven't finished talking about this. you're probably not even listening to my messages anymore, abby, but i miss you a lot. and i know i keep saying this, but that whole teresa dunn thing is a complete lie,
uh, i gotta go. it's a lie, abby. david rosen? thanks for meeting me. sure. all right. shall we, uh... what are you doing? don't read it here. i like to see what i'm getting. hollis doyle wants to build a pipeline through the middle of this country, but it's a tough sell with n.i.m.b.y.s and environmentalists. how's he do it? he rigs the voting. every single ballot measure in favor of the pipeline won in the last election. you're saying he rigged the voting machines in all these states? it sounded crazy to me, too, until i got a look at all this stuff. no. i don't think so. what? you barely looked at it. you know how many conspiracy theorists bombard me with nonsense every week? i should've known when you asked to meet me at a national monument. don't treat me like i'm crazy. i don't have an axe to grind. i don't believe 9/11 was an inside job or the phone company killed j.f.k. i'm just a damn good lawyer who stumbled onto something i can no longer pursue without losing the job i love. so please, just take a look at it.
but did not make a decision regarding, using cash... that's my father, harold pierce, sr. he doesn't look crazy to me. that was a year ago. (motorcycle engine revving) ooh! ee!

(ice cubes rattle) (projector and camera shutter clicking) that is the day before yesterday. one of our servants sent it to us. and thth was before he told them all to, and i quote, "get out and go to hell." as you can see, my husband is clearly suffering from some kind of psychotic break. mom. my ex-husband. (clicking) harold pierce dropped out of tenth grade to help his family after his father died, sold radios door-to-door throughout the lower midwest. is that how he made his fortune? the lowest figures in the sales force. couldn't bear to take the money from the down-and-outs, so he spent most of his house calls fixing people's radios. toying around, figured out a better device to find radio signals further away-- a chip that became the basis for what's in every cell phone today.
