(Hamilton's letter to Burr)
Alexander Hamilton: Mr. Vice President, I am not the reason no one trusts you. No one knows what you believe. I will not equivocate on my opinion, I have always worn it on my sleeve. Even if I said what you think I said, you would need to cite a more specific grievance. Here's an itemized list of thirty years of disagreements.
Aaron Burr: Sweet Jesus.
Aaron Burr: I look forward to our partnership.
Thomas Jefferson: Our partnership?
Aaron Burr: As your vice-President.
Thomas Jefferson: Ha. Yeah, right. You hear this guy? Man openly campaigns against me, talkin' bout, "I look forward to our partnership."
James Madison: It's crazy that the guy who comes in second becomes vice President.
Thomas Jefferson: Yeah, you know what? We can change that. You know why?
James Madison: Why?
Thomas Jefferson: 'Cuz I'm the President. Hey, Burr, when you see Hamilton, thank him for the endorsement.
Alexander Hamilton: I've always considered you a friend.
Aaron Burr: I don't see why that has to end!
Alexander Hamilton: You changed parties to run against my father-in-law.
Aaron Burr: I changed parties to seize the opportunity I saw. I swear, your pride will be the death of us all! Beware: it goeth before the fall...
Alexander Hamilton: When you got skin in the game, you stay in the game. But you don't get a win unless you play in the game. Oh, you get love for it. You get hate for it. You get nothing if you...
Hamilton & Company: Wait for it, wait for it, wait!
Alexander Hamilton: God help and forgive me, I wanna build something that's gonna outlive me.
Hamilton, Washington, Jefferson & Madison: What do you want, Burr? If you stand for nothing, Burr, then what do you fall for?
Aaron Burr: I... wanna be in the room where it happens. I've got to be in the room where it happens.
Alexander Hamilton: Burr, we studied and we fought and we killed for the notion of a nation we now get to build. For once in your life, take a stand with pride. I don't understand how you stand to the side.
Aaron Burr: I'll keep all my plans close to my chest. I'll wait here and see which way the wind will blow. I'm taking my time, watching the afterbirth of a nation, watching the tension grow.
