JESSICA: Well, I would, Harvey, except all senior partners get an associate. It’s just a rule.
We need people who think on their feet, not another clone with a rod up his ass. 我们需要能独立思考的人，而不是只会听指挥的木头人
- My billables destroy his. 我的吸金能力比他强多了
- I’m here night and day doing whatever’s needed 我没日没夜任劳任怨地工作
Louis: It’s 9:30. Nice of you to show up two hours after we open for business. 美国的律所早上7:30上班？
书呆子。Saying someone has a rod up their ass is like saying they are unable (or unwilling) to joke around. They take things too seriously, and they come off as harsh, or an asshole.
- 谁set up了谁？
- 律师 or 救援投手？
- A deal’s a deal
I’m not saying that I haven’t been charmed by Harvey, but it’s just so patronizing when you say that he can handle those things and, “Louis, you can only handle this.” Jessica, I could have handled Gerald Tate.
And I told you I disagree.
– Because… Because when you put two bullies in the same room together, things generally don’t go so well.
It’s 9:30. Nice of you to show up two hours after we open for business. And I see that you’re also trying to look like a pimp.
My bad, Louis. I was out late last night. When I woke up, this is the suit your wife picked out for me.
And that would be funny if I had actually been married.
– Moving along.
– You’re not married?
Recruiting. Harvey, your interviews are set up for tomorrow.
What? Why don’t we just hire the Harvard summer associate douche?
I think if you listen to the phrasing of that question, you’ll come up with an answer.
We need people who think on their feet, not another clone with a rod up his ass.
Harvey, the fact that we only hire from Harvard gives us a cachet that’s a little more valuable than hiring a kid from Rutgers.
You went to Harvard Law.
I’m an exception.
Find me another one.
Can we please skip the recruiting? I work better alone, anyway.
Well, I would, Harvey, except all senior partners get an associate. It’s just a rule.
I’m sorry. What? Jessica, I deserve that promotion. My billables destroy his. And I’m here night and day doing whatever’s needed instead of swanning in and out of here whenever I please.
(CHUCKLES) I must admit, he does make me sound very swan-like.
Harvey, shut up. Louis, this is how it is. All right? Now, you two make nice.
Louis, I apologize. I was out of line. Now, if you’ll just let me text your pretend wife that I just made senior partner, I… What? Too far? Come on. She doesn’t even exist. How was that nice? It’s not mean. Louis. Come on. Louis. Just messing around with you.
