  • I'm not quite sure why this gets such a high score.

  • Quotes (5)

    • Lacey: There's days when I wake up and the kids are fighting, and Harv is complaining cause I can't find two socks that match and the case we've been working on is falling apart and I think to myself "I can't do it. That's too much". And then there's days that I wake up and the kids are fighting and Harv is complaining cause I can't find two socks that match and the case we've been working on is falling apart and I think "God I love this life"

    • Samuels: (to Harvey) I don't push your wife any harder than I push anybody else. She's a police officer—a cop—and I don't pamper her just because she's a woman.

    • Harvey: I'm the one who cooks meals so she can do overtime. I'm the one who sits home with the kids when she's working. Samuels: Do you know what you sound like? You sound just like my ex-wife. See, you don't understand the first thing about being a cop.

    • Maggie: I hope you don't mind, but I took the liberty of making a quick sketch of you. Some people like a souvenir of their stay at the beach. Lacey: How dare you? How dare you watch me like that? I want to be alone here. I'm trying to have a nervous breakdown, for God's sake, and you're sneaking around, putting me on paper?

    • Lacey: I've been thinking about learning economics, and the closest I came was saving Green Stamps.
