  • Trivia & Quotes
  • Quotes (11)

    • Alicia: I had a brief consultation with a divorce attorney. A few days after the allegations against my husband surfaced, in order to weigh my options. Landry: Are you saying you ruled out the possibility of divorce? Alicia: I-- I have no plans to divorce. Landry: But you haven't ruled it out? Alicia: I haven't ruled out running for president. Probably won't happen, but I haven't ruled it out.

    • Daniel Golden: If you don't mind me saying, there is some... ambivalence inherent in your position, Alicia. And ambivalence could hurt Peter's chances. Alicia: I'm not going to lie on the stand, Daniel. Daniel Golden: That's not what I'm saying. The truth is the truth but it can often sound... truer.

    • Alicia: Anything on the CCB letters? Kalinda: Depends. Does "hidvycilfeteenuc" mean anything to you? Alicia: What's the context?

    • Kalinda Saw your husband's appeal starts today. Alicia Yep. Kalinda Should be interesting. Alicia I'm kind of nostalgic for when things weren't so interesting. Kalinda You need a drink. Alicia Probably.

    • Alicia: She's innocent. Will: So is my four-year old niece, but I wouldn't put her on the stand, either.
