I'm gonna roll over you like it's Tiananmen Square... (46.36)

Connerty: So if you run, if you try to again put yourself in a position of public trust and public authority, I will be forced to let slip the dogs of war.

Chuck: Oh, that one I definitely taught you. Yeah. That's the one I used on Axelrod to get him to make his first mistake.

Connerty: Sometimes you learn from the worst.

Chuck: You didn't need to bring out the needle to nudge me. I was running. I am running. And when I win, I'm gonna roll over you like it's Tiananmen Square.

The 1989 Tiananmen Square protests, commonly known in mainland China as the June Fourth Incident, were student-led demonstrations in Beijing (the capital of the People's Republic of China) for the establishment of basic human and press rights and against the Communist-led Chinese government in mid-1989. More broadly, it refers to the popular national movement inspired by the Beijing protests during that period, sometimes called the '89 Democracy Movement. The protests were forcibly suppressed after Chinese Premier Li Peng declared martial law. In what became known as the Tiananmen Square Massacre, troops with assault rifles and tanks fired at the demonstrators trying to block the military's advance towards Tiananmen Square. The number of civilian deaths was internally estimated by the Chinese government to be near or above 10,000.
