    • Harry: I own every record Mel Torme ever made. I'm gonna marry the girl who's impressed by that.

    • Dan: How did you get appointed to the bench? Harry: You know Dan, that's a funny story. It was the mayor's last day in office and it was a Sunday and my name was at the bottom of the list of a 1,000 candidates. So they start calling folks starting at the top of the list. You see it's Sunday and no one's home. So they keep calling down the list, name by name. No one answers. Finally they get down to the bottom of the list and voila. Lana: You mean you were appointed a judge because… Harry: I was home.

    • Selma: I had a husband just like that. Bull: Oh yeah? Selma: Yeah, I had to shoot him too.

    • Mr. Kerr: Your Honor… Harry: Oh come on Phil, one more flip: Heads we send [your wife] up the river, tails you take her home. Mr. Kerr: No, every time you flip that [coin] it comes up heads. Harry: Well of course it does, it's a double-headed coin. Come on, you didn't think I believed in luck did ya?

    • Lana: You're crazy. I mean an attempted murder and you send the plaintiff and the defendant out for a cup of coffee. What do murders get? Brunch? Harry: Alright my methods are informal. (Lana giggles) Hey give them a chance. They might work. Maybe just maybe, it will work. (Sheila and Dan enter with tattered clothes) Then again, maybe someday pigs will fly.
