Federal prosecutor

Sam Ellis is widely expected

to run for higher office.

- With a "not guilty" verdict.

- But a resolution

is expected shortly

on federal charges.

That Ellis plans to seek

higher office...

For Ellis, everything is

riding on today's decision.

Today's decision will

either launch

- his political career...

- ...Presumably beginning

with a run for Attorney General.

Mr. Ellis?

Yeah.

A couple of us arranged

this little drinks thing

at blend.

We're kind of all assuming

that You'll be there.

Don't we have to win first?

There's no way You'll lose.

All rise.

Do you think

sheriff Haussler should be given

a lesser sentence given

his record of public service?

As I said at the trial,

Jim, this is a black-and-white

issue legally and morally.

There should be

no special treatment.

After today's victory,

do you intend to pursue

corruption charges

against other officials

- in the mayor's administration?

- No decisions

on any further action

have been made at this time.

Any chance you're gonna run

for Attorney General, Sam?

Well, I have my hands full

at the U.S. attorney's office

right now.

While Haussler is expected

to appeal today's decision,

all eyes will be on

whether the U.S. attorney's

office plans to seek charges

against mayor Jonas Stiegel.

So, straight on

to Attorney General?

I can neither confirm

nor deny, counselor.

Fucking liar.

You didn't hear mommy say that.

How's his temperature?

Mm.

Almost there.

We were watching you on TV.

Yeah? Did I look nervous?

I felt like I was shaking.

You looked hot.

Women on the jury really

loved your lady justice thing.

Uh-huh. It's you they liked.

Well, they did throw

their undergarments at me.

- Is that unusual?

- Whores.

My dad was watching

with George Hiller.

They think we should get

Nigel Coaker

to write you up in his

"faces to watch" piece.

Yeah, that'd be amazing.

I have Nigel's number.

I'll give him a call.

He owes my dad

a ton of favors, anyway.

What time are you coming home?

Uh, you know, they're having

a little victory lap party

for us.

I got to put in an appearance.

Lame. I'm kidding.

It's fine. Proud of you, honey.

Okay, I'm pulling up.

I love you.

Love you.

To Sam Ellis.

After 18 months of nonstop toil,

may he enjoy his moment

in the sun, 'cause tomorrow,

I'm going to bury him

under a pile of work.

To Sam.

To Sam.

Do you guys not get it out

of your systems freshman year?

- F*ck off.

- F*ck off.

Okay.

Jeannie must be excited, yeah?

Yeah. Yeah.

She's getting restless, though.

Don't tell me you're not,

either.

You've done all you can here,

especially with that fucking

fossil running the show.

- Easy.

- All right.

It's, uh...

It's time, yeah?

Sam Ellis

for attorney fucking general.

Everybody was just waiting

for you to win this fucker.

Put a pin in it for now.

No, no.

Don't leave me hanging here.

There's got to be more to life

than hedge funds,

or I'm gonna

fucking kill myself.

Come on.

I do have to go, though.

Before the wife throws a fit.

Come on.

Listen, congrats again.

- Yeah.

- Yeah.

- See ya.

- See ya.

I'll take another.

You did not!

No, I don't believe you.

I'm not saying that.

You did a great job.

And what exactly

are you saying, counselor?

I am saying that you

should just move around a bit

before the semester's over.

You don't want to go back

to law school thinking

that this whole office

is just one boring section.

What If I like your section?

I still think It's a mistake.

I do. You got to figure out

what you believe in,
