Will: Will you marry me? And let me just say I really think you should. I think you should say yes. But no matter what you say, there’s no chance I am ever gonna hurt you again. And no matter what you say, I’m gonna be in love with you for the rest of my life. There’s no way out of that. That’s just a physical law of the universe — you own me. No matter what you say.
Will: I will never stop—
Mac: Yes. I’m saying yes
Will: You’re saying yes?
Will: Thank God.
I call myself a Republican ‘cause I am one. I believe in market solutions and I believe in common sense realities and the necessity to defend ourselves against a dangerous world and that’s about it. Problem is, now I have to be homophobic. I have to count the number of times people go to church. I have to deny facts and think scientific research is a long con. I have to think poor people are getting a sweet ride. And I have to have such a stunning inferiority complex that I fear education and intellect in the 21st century. But most of all, the biggest new requirement, really the only requirement, is that I have to hate Democrats.

[to Lisa] You’re thoughtful and you’re authentic. And I have never seen you sneer at anyone or anything. There is, believe me, no one that you’re not good enough for and there is hardly anyone who’s good enough for you, including, it turned out, me.

Sloan: I’m gonna feel bad until this is fixed.
Neal: It’s gonna be fixed.
Sloan: What if it never is? What if I go on and on like this? What if I keep talking in rhetorical questions until you just can’t take it anymore?
Don: You are a member of a godless, soulless race of extortionists.
Rebecca: That’s fair.
Charlie: Are you saying you agree?
Reese: I think your resignation should be accepted immediately and we should write Dantana a check and get to the business of rebooting this once respected brand.
Charlie: Then why don’t you?
Reese: My mom says I can’t.
Will: Come on, six hours of live election coverage? For you and me, that’s like an orgy at a spa where there are college football games on TV and from the trees hang Christian Louboutins.
Mac: I feel like—
Will: All in your size, all different kinds. Heels like lightsabers. Boots— Boots are hanging from the trees!
[to Mac] You’re the most attractive woman I have ever seen in real life and I’m sticking by that statement.

Guy comes into my house which I love. Which I bet you guys didn’t know. But I love it. I love ACN. You don’t make me a nickel and you cause headaches for the divisions that do, but you make me— You make me so proud. God, guy comes in here, cooks an interview, and this ends up with— ‘Cause he’s unemployable he gets a $5 million settlement and the three of you leave? Oh, I don’t think so…
No, I do not accept your resignations. And Jerry Dantana’s not gonna get one fucking dollar. I got some kick-ass courtroom outfits.
I just knew, Leona would save the day!
Don: Do you know how many journalists have ever been tried under the Espionage Act? - None.
Sloan: Good. ‘Cause you wouldn’t make it in jail, Don. I’d survive, but you wouldn’t. In fact, I’d thrive.
Don: How do you figure?
Sloan: Shawshank. I’d do everybody’s taxes and invest the warden’s money. What are you gonna do? Produce their nightly news show?
Mac: Is it possible they’ve responded in a secret corner of the Internet?
Neal: Secret corner of the Internet?
Mac: Slay a dungeon wizard to get the keys to Mordor or something?
Neal: It’s not possible.
Mac: Something that we need that Dumbledore—
Neal: Listen to yourself!
Mac: I know, it’s getting worse as I go on.
Neal: And it didn’t start in a great place.
Will: A woman is like a tea bag. You can’t tell how strong she is until you put her in hot water.
Sloan: Who said that?
Will: Eleanor Roosevelt.
Sloan: Does that have anything to do with this?
