Madam Secretary Season 4 Episode 14: "Refuge" Quotes

Woah, dude. You're acting like I'm using trivia to fill some void or distract myself from feeling a little stalled out lately because my love life is nonexistent and sometimes the loneliness in my apartment feels like a prison.Matt
Will: I get it. You can't talk to your parents about everything, and it's embarrassing to buy them yourself. [slaps a ziploc of condoms on the table]
Jason: No, no, no, no, that's...
Will: No, it's okay, I got 'em from the clinic. Should see you through the month. There's a big jump in STDs in your age group. Syphilis is back!
Kat: Okay, human traffickers?
Jay: You're kidding.
Kat: Yeah, of course I'm kidding. They're the most evil monsters belched from Hell the earth has ever known. Although...
Jay: Stop. We may not have any legal options, but we're not going straight up immoral.
Kat: Oh, I like that. 'Different.' Yeah, I...yeah. Yeah, I had long hair, and, uh, wore dresses and heels and makeup, and, um, sometimes it felt like me. And sometimes...it felt like a costume I had to wear to survive, and gain access.
Jay: So what made you...this you?
Kat: I survived and gained access.
I'm bisexual. Uh, you can also say pansexual or, uh, fluid or non-monosexual, but uh... . Yeah, I'm queer.Kat
Elizabeth [about Jason]: He's just a teenager, and we are a little less now. It's nature's way of making him leave the house when he graduates.
Henry: Yeah. That didn't work out so well with the other two.
Matt [about the trivia study packet]: Did you look it over?
Blake: You know what? I actually did. It's so cool.
Matt: Way to go teamie!
Blake: I'm lying, you idiot. We're trying to save refugees from a homophobic, murderous dictator!
Matt: Okay, yeah, yeah, work.
Matt: I know you think you got this team trivia stuff, but I promise you, you don't got this.
Blake: Ivy League over-achievers who have been obnoxiously dominating dinner conversations since they were four years old? Please. I went to class with them. I avoided joining clubs with them. I'm probably unwilling to admit that I actually am one of them. Believe me, I got this.
Matt: Oh come on! Don't you want to put your powers of pop culture and theatre to better use than just making references that fly over the Secretary's head?
Blake: You're right, they kinda do.
Blake: Stop. Captain Ronnie Baker, from CYBERCOM?
Matt: Okay, to be clear, she is not the captain of The Bill of Right Answers. That would be me.
Henry: They want to give me a commendation for some reason.
Elizabeth: Like, because you deserve it?
Henry: Yeah, or they know I was driven to quit by political BS. They didn't back me up, and now they want to make themselves feel better.
Elizabeth: Yeah, no. The CIA doesn't really do regret.
