The Ides of March (2011)
Stephen Meyers: If you want to be president, you can start a war, you can lie, you can cheat, you can bankrupt the country, but you can't fuck the interns. They'll get you for that.
Molly Stearns: How old are you?
Stephen Meyers: How old do you think I am?
Molly Stearns: Thirty.
Stephen Meyers: You think I'm thirty?
Molly Stearns: Sorry. How old are you?
Stephen Meyers: Thirty.
Stephen Meyers: I'm not a Christian. I'm not an Atheist. I'm not Jewish. I'm not Muslim. My religion, what I believe in is called the Constitution of United States of America.
Tom Duffy: Do yourself a favor. Get out, now. While you still can. Go into entertainment or business, go open a fucking restaurant in Costa Rica. Anything. Do something that's gonna make you happy, okay? Cause you stay in this business long enough, you're going to get jaded and cynical.
Stephen Meyers: Like you?
Tom Duffy: Yeah, just like me!
Molly Stearns: I've been trying to fuck you for a while.
Stephen Meyers: Wow.
Molly Stearns: That's kind of a slutty of me, huh?
Tom Duffy: All the reporters love you. Even the ones that hate you love you.
Governor Mike Morris: Stevie, you still single?
Stephen Meyers: I'm married to the campaign, governor.
Governor Mike Morris: He's married to the campaign. Good answer.
Stephen Meyers: How old are you?
Molly Stearns: How old do you think I am?
Stephen Meyers: Twenty-one?
Molly Stearns: Twenty. Yep.
Stephen Meyers: That's young.
Molly Stearns: Is that too young to fuck a 30-year-old?
Stephen Meyers: Well, you see, the laws are different in different states. Here, at your hotel, here in Kentucky, it's frowned upon.
Molly Stearns: Oh.
Stephen Meyers: But, if we go across the bridge into Ohio where your hotel is. Yeah, surprisingly, they're very lax about their child-endangerment laws. Do you have a car?
Molly Stearns: I don't drive. I took a cab.
Stephen Meyers: I have the keys to the campaign bus.
Tom Duffy: You know, I'm trying to remember if the Democrats have ever nominated an atheist before.
Paul Zara: Well, we know they've nominated a jackass before.
Tom Duffy: [to Stephen] You exude something. You draw people in. All the reporters love you. Even the ones that hate you love you. 'Cause you play them like the pieces on a chessboard and make it look effortless. And we both know how hard it is constantly being on guard, weighing every word, every move. But from the outside, you make it look easy. People are scared of you. 'Cause they don't understand how you do it, and they love you for it. And that is the most valuable thing in this business. The ability to win people's respect by making them mistake their fear for love.
TV Reporter: We have now Governor Morris' new senior campaign adviser, Stephen Meyers, coming to us from Xavier University where Senator Thompson has just endorsed Governor Morris, essentially ending this primary race. Stephen, can you give us some insight into how this whole thing unfolded?
Stephen Meyers: Are you a Bearcat? Are you a Cincinnati Bearcat?
