This episode re-tells the events in "Breakout Capacity" (Season 3 Episode 8 of Madam Secretary) from Jason’s point of view. There are thirty direct quotes:1. “I know everyone’s obsessing about the Tenth Amendment but last time I checked, I’m still protected under the First.”2. “Make him take it off.”3. “If Jason really feels that Reynolds will make a better President, I’m OK with his wearing it.”4. “Student debt! Big difference!”5. “Fine. Mock me. We’ll see who’s laughing when the revolution comes.”6. “Yeah, I saw. On your profile.”7. “You saw, huh?”8. “Take it down.”9. “Why?”10. “Do I really need to spell it out for you?”11. “Fine. We done?”12. “No. Suppose Reynolds does become President. What then?”13. “Then he’s President.”14. “What’s his stance on nuclear weapons?”15. “Reynolds believes each country should be able to determine its own weapons policy.”16. “So if Iran decides it wants nuclear weapons, you think it should have them?”17. “What? No! I mean … I’m not sure.”18. “If you’re going to embarrass your family, you had better make sure you can defend your point of view. So either educate yourself or stop talking.”19. “Well, I knew you were angry but are you abandoning me?”20. “You know, the first time my dad brought my brother and sisters and me to Washington, I thought we’d visit the monuments and the museums. Instead, he brought us here.”21. “Why? To commune with dumpsters?”22. “No. Union members marched here to protest for an eight-hour workday. Instead of negotiating, their employers organized a militia against them. They brought the wounded in here. Two men died right there.”23. “Wow. Is there a plaque or something?”24. “No. I guess that was kind of the point. Sometimes you don’t do things just to get a trophy.”25. "Your grandfather dedicated his life to helping others."26. "Yeah, I know.  You resented him for it."27. "Yeah.  I think I joined the Marines just to tick him off."  (paraphrased)28. "Yeah, but you don't regret joining the Marines."29. "No … but I had to grow into it."30. “You’ve got gifts, Jason. An incredible facility for thought and language. That’s power. But until you can harness that power to something bigger than yourself, that power is wasted. No one’s ever going to take you seriously. That’s all I’m saying.”REFERENCES1. “Breakout Capacity."
