    Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


    • TRIVIA (1)

      • Goof: When Elaine enters the restroom with a camera filming the fight, the lens still has the cap on it (what would only result in a black picture). However the next scene indicates that she gets everything on tape, what in fact wouldn't be possible then.

    • QUOTES (3)

      • John: I'm concerned that this trial, well...
        Richard: What?
        John: I'm worried about the fall-out. Like you said, Harry Wall is an enormous client and, uh, how do I put this..?
        Richard: Just say it, John.
        John: I'm better than you, and I fear that this trial would cost us not only a major client but could jeopardize our friendship.
        Richard: Because you're better than me?
        John: Yes.
        Richard: And you think you'll beat me?
        John: Yes.

      • (Georgia and John are on opposing sides in court and Georgia is questioning a witness when John stands up)
        John: Your honor, I must apologize - Miss Thomas has recently undergone through a little strife in her marriage. I think it explains the inappropriate and cruel nature of her questioning.
        Georgia: Objection!
        John: She's usually very docile and likable.
        Georgia: OBJECTION!!

      • Renée: He knows you, and he knows that with you a kiss is not just a kiss. Like you say, it has more meaning.
        Ally: So maybe I should just kiss a few more guys to trivialize it. I could start with the defendant.
        Renée: Is this guy really that cute?
        Ally: Spanky toy.
