[ALEXANDER]
Angelica!

[ANGELICA]
Alexander...
Congratulations.
You have invented a new kind of stupid,
A 'damage you can never undo' kind of stupid,
An 'open all the cages in the zoo' kind of stupid,
'Truly, you didn't think this through?' kind of stupid!
Let's review:
You took a rumor a few maybe two people knew and refuted it by sharing an affair of which no one has accused you.
I begged you to take a break, you refused to.
So scared of what your enemies will do to you-
You're the only enemy you ever seem to lose to!
You know why Jefferson can do what he wants?
He doesn't dignify school-yard taunts with a response!
So yeah, congratulations!

[ALEXANDER]
Angelica...

[ANGELICA]
You've redefined your legacy.
Congratulations.
 

[ALEXANDER]

It was an act of political sacrifice!

[ANGELICA]
Sacrifice?
I languished in a loveless marriage in London,
I lived only to read your letters.
I look at you and think 'God, what have we done with our lives and what did it get us?'
That doesn't wipe the tears or the years away,
But I'm back in the city and I'm here to stay,
And you know what I'm here to do?

[ALEXANDER]
Angelica...

[ANGELICA]
I'm not here for you-!
I know my sister like I know my own mind,
You will never find anyone as trusting or as kind.
And a million years ago she said to me 'this one's mine',
So I stood by...
Do you know why?!
I love my sister more than anything in this life!
I will choose her happiness over mine every time!
Eliza...
 

  [ALEXANDER]
Eliza...

[ANGELICA]
Is the best thing in our lives,
So never lose sight of the fact that you have been blessed with the best wife!
Congratulations, for the rest of your life
Every sacrifice you make is for my sister!
Give her the best life!
Congratulations.
