Power and friendship – seeing what we seek

Louis Litt : Get the f- You read “Lord of the Rings”?

Jessica Pearson : Four times. I mean, it is about power.

Louis Litt : That’s funny. I always thought it was about friendship.

I recently caught this exchange on the show “Suits.” Jessica Pearson’s character is that of a career woman who cares about her firm above everything else.

Louis, on the other hand, is a fellow partner who is an emotional hot head on a perennial search for friendship.

What’s telling about the exchange is that they both reflected on the “Lord of the Rings” and saw what they seek the most.
