Quotes

Gideon Chess: So what's on your mind, Ellis?
Ellis Henderson: You know ever since Gordon did to all these terrible things to Ariel, Ms. Shane and the other girls, their families and other people have been attacking me for marrying a monster, I've been getting press scrutiny and I even got some death threats. My career is hampered by the publicity of my ex's crimes. It also impacted Angela big time and she's now in a special mental hospital. Perhaps if I hadn't known about this much earlier, this would never happened.
Gideon Chess: Wait a minute, what you're saying?
Ellis Henderson: (after taking a deep breath) Gideon, I'm not gonna seek re-election. I invited you here because I want someone I can trust to run my position as D.A.. I know you felt betrayed by Gordon and condemned him publicly. That means I want someone who does progressive approach to putting criminals away rather than do things that are more political. I asking you to run in my place as District Attorney.
Gideon Chess: (After a moment) Okay. I will seek election as District Attorney, just as long I have your support, Ellis.
Ellis Henderson: You have that. And thank you, Gideon.
