You wanna sack the city with me?… (08.15)

DeGuilio: None of us not the AG, not you, not me none of us took down a single fucking giant in the shadow of the crash of '08. I mean, maybe one or two mortgage brokers got kneecapped. Axelrod's the chance to cement shoe a big one, for all of us.

Chuck: Well, I can't really think about any of that because as you damn well know, I've recused myself.

DeGuilio: Yeah. Like you said. All eyes are on you, Chuck. Land it safely. We will get you any resources you need.

Chuck: Thank you.

DeGuilio: Maybe the Attorney General will grace you with a presence on the podium, class the thing up.

Chuck: When the jungle was thick, you hid in the hills. And now that I've bushwhacked through and I have El Dorado in my sights, you wanna sack the city with me?

DeGuilio: "With me"? Huh. I thought you recused yourself.

El Dorado (Spanish for "the golden one"), originally El Hombre Dorado ("The Golden Man") or El Rey Dorado ("The Golden King"), was the term used by the Spanish Empire to describe a mythical tribal chief (zipa) of the Muisca native people in then Spanish colonial province of Colombia, who, as an initiation rite, covered himself with gold dust and submerged in Lake Guatavita. The legends surrounding El Dorado changed over time, as it went from being a man, to a city, to a kingdom, and then finally to an empire.

A second location for El Dorado was inferred from rumors, which inspired several unsuccessful expeditions in the late 1500s in search of a city called Manõa on the shores of Lake Parime. Two of the most famous of these expeditions were led by Sir Walter Raleigh. In pursuit of the legend, Spanish conquistadors and numerous others searched Colombia, Venezuela, and parts of Guyana and northern Brazil for the city and its fabulous king. In the course of these explorations, much of northern South America, including the Amazon River, was mapped. By the beginning of the 19th century, most people dismissed the existence of the city as a myth.
