I am bad, bad Leroy Brown... (29.00)

Bryan: I worried maybe you'd hold a grudge

Chuck: Grudge? Nossir. No. No, you said it yourself. None of this is personal.

Bryan: Hm.

Chuck: Yeah, Bryan. You learned every lesson I had to teach. Except the one that matters most. You didn't win. Didn't finish me off. No, I'm still standing here in the best job there is because I can do what I want, when I want, how I want. Oh, I am bad, bad Leroy Brown. Baddest man in the whole damn town.

Bryan: Just wait a second.

Chuck: You breached my threshold and threatened me, threatened my wife, the mother of my children. How could you think there's a universe where you would survive that? Oh, Bryan. You are many things. A man. A boy. A lawyer. A fighter. Student of the dark side of humanity. And a lover of jurisprudence. But there's one thing you're certainly not. An Assistant United States Attorney for the Southern District of New York. Drop your credentials at the guard's desk. And GET THE FUCK OUT OF HERE!
