((SPOILERS)) JUSTIFIED - Season 4 / Episode 10 / "Get Drew"

  • Chief Deputy U.S. Marshal Art Mullen:

    Where are you going?

  • Deputy U.S. Marshal Raylan Givens:

    I'm gonna tell staties.

  • Chief Deputy U.S. Marshal Art Mullen:

    Oh, hell no. Hell no. Get back over here. First thing we're gonna do is we're gonna acknowledge that this guy's awesome.

  • Deputy U.S. Marshal Rachel Brooks:

    What?

  • Chief Deputy U.S. Marshal Art Mullen:

    I mean, he shoots Theo Tonin, fakes his own death in a spectacular fashion, pushes a guy out of an airplane while he's flying it, parachutes into Harlan County with enough coke and cash to jumpstart the economy of a small country, and then he has the balls to get a job in law enforcement, not once, but two times. He spends a couple of days riding around with you while you're looking for him, and now he's run off with a hooker that's half his age. That's some badass shit.

  • Deputy U.S. Marshal Raylan Givens:

    It's pretty badass.

  • Chief Deputy U.S. Marshal Art Mullen:

    Yes, it is. This is a once in a lifetime opportunity. You gonna let those guys be the ones, or are we gonna be the ones to take that badass?

  • Deputy U.S. Marshal Raylan Givens:

    You're right. We're on it.

  • Chief Deputy U.S. Marshal Art Mullen:

    Yeah, let's go find a whore.

A fifty-one-year-old lawyer and a veteran of the state legislature, Lincoln had left his last political office, as U.S. representative, eleven years before. After one middling term in Congress, he mostly stayed away from politics for five years. Then, in 1854, an old debate over slavery took a new turn with the repeal of the Missouri Compromise, which, Lincoln wrote, ‘aroused me again.’

The inclination to exchange thoughts with one another is probably an original impulse of our nature. If I be in pain I wish to let you know it, and to ask your sympathy and assistance; and my pleasurable emotions also, I wish to communicate to, and share with you.

The Notorious B.I.G. - “What’s Beef?” [Life After Death]

At the time of this song’s skyrocketing popularity, the word beef was one of the most overused terms in urban vernacular. Biggie deaded that real quick, and we were all grateful. He gave us the template for what actually constitutes beef, and any lame that considered a stupid fist fight as beef was forced to cease and desist acting tougher than he really was. Now if someone could just do that for swag.
