Senator Eleanor Prentiss Shaw, The Manchurian Candidate

“Make no mistake. The American people are terrified. They know something’s coming. They can feel it. And we can either shovel them the same old shit and call it sugar or we can arm them. We can arm them with a young, vibrant Vice President. We can give them heat, energy! Give them a war hero with heart, forged by enemy fire in the desert in the dark when American lives hung on the balance!”

President Tracy Flick, Election

“Dear Lord Jesus, I do not often speak with you and ask for things, but now I really must insist that you help me win the election tomorrow because I deserve it and Paul Metzler doesn’t, as you well know. I realize that it was your divine hand that disqualified Tammy Metzler and now I’m asking that you go that one last mile and make sure to put me in office where I belong so that I may carry out your will on earth as it is in heaven. Amen.”

Chief of Staff Mona Fredricks, Boss

Vice President Selina Meyer, Veep

“Tell her I’m canceling the lunch with Catherine that was supposed to prove there’s nothing more important than Catherine because something more important than Catherine has come up.”
