  • Quotes (5)

    • Veronica: She's never gonna divorce you, you know.
      Peter: Hi, Veronica. It's nice to see you, too.
      Veronica: She's a good person. You're exploiting her.
      Peter: How? By not divorcing her?
      Veronica: Yes. You're leading her on. Let her go.
      Peter: What if I don't want to let her go?
      Veronica: Well, then you're just being selfish.

    • Jackie: I'm so glad you decided to visit. Zach and Grace were wondering about their other grandmother.
      Veronica: I heard you nearly died, Jackie.
      Jackie: A stroke from helping out with the kids, by myself.
      Veronica: Well, at least you got a young companion out of it. How much does he charge?
      Jackie: $40 an hour. You should consider it. You won't have to go begging for male attention.
      Veronica: Yes. Paying for it seems to run in your family.

    • David: This is your second marriage?
      Veronica: Third.
      David: Really?
      Veronica: I never found anyone to satisfy me, I guess. They either bore me or die.

    • Alicia: Objection. Counselor is testifying.
      Judge Friend: Uh, ma'am, Mr. Breslow questioned the witness. Only he is allowed to object. Mr. Breslow, do you have an objection?
      Breslow: Uh, no, Your Honor. This is too entertaining.

    • Judge Friend: Is the government fine with the addition of Mr. Breslow?
      Bucky: Of course, Your Honor. As long as our underdog status is now formalized.
      Breslow: (sarcastically) The United States as underdog. I think that's the first time since the Revolutionary War.
