Verna: Is there something I can do for you?
Sally: You can take care of yourself, for your own good, for the good of the country. You can focus on your health, concentrate your energies on getting better. Such a stressful job can't be good for you at a time like this.
Verna: I'm not stepping down from the bench.
Sally: Justice Thornton, your President is making a request of you. Wouldn't be patriotic not to acquiesce.
Verna: You're gonna be President for about the next 15 minutes, and then your time will be done. And I will still be on the bench. If I have to rule from the confines of an iron lung, I will be on the bench.
Sally: The seat your butt is filling on the Supreme Court belongs to me to fill as I see fit. It was promised to me during the campaign, and for someone other than a left wing, baby-killing, homosexual-loving, godless creature such as yourself. I want it now, and you will give it to me.
