Marshall: If anything happened, I want you to know I --

John Adams Abigail "Nabby": Is the war over?
Abigail Adams: Not while there is a single British soldier remaining in America. But they cannot hold on for long. Not after this. God be praised, and General Washington.
John Adams John Adams: Abigail. Here's a fine culmination to all my years of service - fewer than half the votes of the electoral college. General Washington is unanimously acclaimed President with 69 votes, whereas I apparently am scorned by all but 34 of the electors.
Abigail Adams: John, there are two, four, six, eight, ten other names here. You have more votes than all of them put together. And John Jay comes in third with nine.

In Plain Sight Abigail: I am thinking of buying Marshall a first edition of Leaves of Grass. Do you know if he has it already?
Mary: [laughs] Right. Because I've got Marshall's pretentious book collection memorized.
Abigail: Well, I just thought you might --
Mary: Tell me you're not one of those psycho girlfriends trolling for intel about the guy she's dating.
Abigail: Mary, this isn't a trick question. It's not espionage. You know Marshall better than he knows himself, and you sit five feet away from him ten hours a day.
