Francis Underwood: "For those of us climbing to the top of the food chain, there can be no mercy. There is but one rule: hunt or be hunted."
Money or Power
Francis Underwood: "Such a waste of talent. He chose money over power. In this town, a mistake nearly everyone makes. Money is the Mc-mansion in Sarasota that starts falling apart after 10 years. Power is the old stone building that stands for centuries. I cannot respect someone who doesn't see the difference."

Francis Underwood: "There are two kinds of pain. The sort of pain that makes you strong, or useless pain. The sort of pain that's only suffering. I have no patience for useless things."
Freddy: "Don't do no good calling a man out like that. It's like - blaming a snake for having fangs."
