A Cast Iron Soul. Durable. Seasoned

Rhoades: I’m glad you accepted my offer to drop by.  I didn’t like the circumstances you left under.

Howard: Never bad to march with your conscience intact.

Rhoades: Not sure I agree with that. Conscience can be a little bit like those old nonstick pans. It flakes off under heat…what you’re really looking for is a cast iron soul. Durable. Seasoned.

— Chuck Rhoades (Paul Giamatti) & Merle Howard (Noah Robbins), Billions, S5-E8: Copenhagen
