"Peter, like most politicians, is such a survivor. They are not wired like us. They go on automatic. In his head, it's like, 'Stop the bleeding, heal the wound and move on.' They're wired like soldiers in that way. Actors, we are sensitive people. You do tend to develop a thicker skin, but you have to make sure your skin isn't so thick that you stop being human. I'm interested in flawed human beings. We are all flawed in many, many ways." — Chris Noth, Peter Florrick
