To celebrate the return of House of Cards to Netflix, we take a look at some series one highlights via quotes from the hit show.
The second series has gone live on Netflix tonight and in celebration of the new episodes we’ve taken a look back at some highlights from the first run via the power of quotation.
When the newly elected President reneges on a promise, Francis and Claire decide to sever all allegiances and toss the rules out the window.
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.
Francis shakes down the Congressional leadership. Peter Russo must choose between politics and family.
It’s so refreshing to work with someone who’ll throw a saddle on a gift horse rather than look it in the mouth.
Francis wins a major battle, but doesn’t pause to rest on his laurels. Peter must face his past. Stamper hushes a secret.
There’s no better way to over power a trickle of doubt then with a flood of naked truth.
Rebellion on all fronts. Claire defies Francis, Zoe finds comfort in someone new, and Peter makes an ultimatum.
I have zero tolerance for betrayal, which they will soon indelibly learn.
Francis scrambles to keep his plan on track. Claire is haunted by choices old and new. Zoe poses a serious threat.
Every time I’ve spoken to you, you’ve never spoken back, although given our mutual disdain, I can’t blame you for the silent treatment.
House of Cards is available via Netflix.
