Evan: Why not just bus in the entire Southampton social register?
Blythe Ballard: Mr. Lawson, you've given me an excellent idea.
Evan: Don't play possum. Vote for Lawson.
Shelby Shackelford: (to Hank) You know... before I met you, I heard all these amazing things about you. And I just kept thinking you had to be too good to be true. Now we have a patient in a coma and your positive tox screen results, and I can't help but think maybe I was right.
Shelby Shackelford: Bobby is Symphony's Associate General Counsel.
Hank: Ah. So is he here for me or for you?
Shelby Shackelford: For us. Hankmed is part of Symphony, so we're all in this together. Aren't we?
Blythe Ballard: Once again, Mr. Lawson,
you show what a neophyte you are. God help us all if you are elected. You don't apologize for hitting below the belt. That's how politics works, my dear boy. You punch me, I punch you-- but harder.
Evan: So... what are you gonna do?
Blythe Ballard: I've already done it.
Gina Black: I have the final election results. It turned out to be a real squeaker. The new village councilperson is... Edwina Bowman. Who won by a razor-thin 27 votes.
Hank: Jeremiah resigned from HankMed. Effectively immediately.
