It will be our war room... (51.28)

Chuck: This space is now assigned to you. Officially, it is where you will review office priorities. Unofficially, Where we, the Maquisards, will mount the resistance. We will not let this son of a bitch define justice for the SDNY.

The Maquis were rural guerrilla bands of French Resistance fighters, called maquisards, during the Nazi Occupation of France in World War II. Initially, they were composed of men and women who had escaped into the mountains to avoid conscription into Vichy France's  Service du travail obligatoire ("Compulsory Work Service" or STO) to provide forced labor for Germany. To avert capture and deportation to Germany, they became increasingly organized into active resistance groups.
