Holden Ford: So what are you teaching?
Wendy Carr: Um, I'm teaching a class on the intersection of sociopathy and fame. People like, um, Andy Warhol, Jim Morrison. Their celebrity becomes the only thing they need to sustain their ego.
Bill Tench: Nixon was a sociopath.
Wendy Carr: Very similar.
Holden Ford: How do you get to be president of the United States if you're a sociopath?
Wendy Carr: The question is, how do you get to be president of the United States if you're not? That's why this work is so vital. It goes so much further than the FBI.
Bill Tench: All the way to the White House.
Wendy Carr: Perhaps, yeah.”
