"Everyone in that room wanted to cross you off that list. I said no. I stuck up for you. I said, Peter Russo, he’s got potential. He’s young. He’s capable. He’s going places. I made them keep you in contention. You’re still on that list. You show up at my house, in the middle of the night, drunk, to whine, to try to shift the blame on me, instead of taking responsibility for yourself and your own actions. Maybe they were right in that meeting. Maybe you are worthless. I’m the only person that believes in you, Peter. But maybe that’s one too many.”
"The hot water will open up your capillaries. The aspirin you just took will make your blood thinner. It’s up to you, Peter. Oh, and if you do decide to take the coward’s way out, cut along the tracks, not across them. That’s a rookie mistake."
House of Cards (2013)
