This isn't the Politburo... (17.28)

Bryan: Ok, let's say there are indeed other bad actors involved. In fact, I intend to prove there are. Accomplices, medical experts, bag men these people don't exonerate Axelrod, as opposing counsel suggests, but they further show how Axelrod did what he did. And they show that this wasn't just a case of a rogue billionaire acting out of spite, but one who was very much like a bull in a ring, using or enriching an equally dangerous figure, the wife of one who sits high atop the federal power structure in the government, and a major investor in the company. And I intend to explode the whole thing

Orrin: Just a minute! This isn't the Politburo, you can't just slander your neighbors to get ahead in the bread line

DeGuilio: Whoa! I invited you to my home for a nice dinner, you people are trying to turn it into the Animal House toga party. Chambers. Now.
