Goof: In the scene where Ally is taking a shower, one can see that she is wearing a bra (or swimsuit). Which is something one would not normally do in your own bathroom.
John: Ally, can I ask you a question?
John: How often do you have sexual relations?
Ally: Not that! You can't ask me that! You don't even know me!
Ally: Do you love her, Richard?
Richard: I'm not sure… I think so, but it could be… maybe it's just the waddle.
Ally: Excuse me?
Richard: On her neck. That's what I go for with older women. The loose skin on their neck… the hint of a waddle. There's nothing more arousing for me, the way it just gently hangs there. And Whipper, I mean… I mean her neck is pretty tight now but you can see the potential, it will be perfect! So perfect! I wonder do I really love her or just the impending waddle? It just makes me crazy!
Ally (to a random guy in a bar, trying to prove that men are pigs): Don't even speak. I live across the street and I wanna take your clothes off. Do bad things. I'll have you back in an hour.
Ally Ally? Ally McBeal? Greg stone! I was your brother's roommate at Baits!
Oh… Hello. (voiceover) I can't move my feet!
Georgia (trying to prove a point): I'm sorry, I've never done this before in my life. I can see you're wearing a ring so I know you're married. I don't even wanna know your name, I don't even wanna talk, I… I live across the street and I just wanna be naked with you for an hour and pretend it never happened… and remember it forever.
Guy in bar: Let me just pay my check first.
Georgia: Oh, I'm sorry… I though you were somebody else. My mistake.
(Ally is looking around for Ronald Cheanie)
Elaine: He took the stairs, he's gone.
Ally: You could catch him if you took the window.
(with italic being voiceover)
Ally: I'm gonna have to ask you to leave. Stay anyway.
Ronald Cheanie:You want me to leave?
Ally: No. Yes.
Ally (voiceover): A judge? Even people we call Your Honour don't have honour anymore… It shouldn't be legal to be a judge with a name like Whipper.
Ally: This is serious Richard, they were kissing.
Richard: In the restaurant?
Richard: They were kissing?
Richard: Each other?
Ally: This has nothing to do with Billy!
Renée: You're kissing a guy you don't even like according to what you told---
Ally: He looked good! Where does it say that women can't act like men sometimes? I saw a piece of cute meat and I said to myself "You only live once, be a man"!
Renée: Are you sure they were kissing?
Ally: Am I sure? Hello, she was licking his tonsils.
Ally: By any chance is this evening kind of like a double date?
Richard (laughing): Oh, no, no… kind of.
Ally: So this man Mr Cheanie he thinks that I'm here as his escort?
(Ally gets up from her chair)
Richard: And up she goes.
Ally: Richard I'm going to the bathroom.
Richard: Is that where you make all your big decisions in life, the bathroom?
Ally: Well, I'm sure you don't make any of yours in a room with a mirror.
Richard: We started this firm with the same dream, did we not?
Richard:Yeah, and to pursue that dream we agreed that I would be the shark, the hammer, the ass and you would be the pillar of dignity. This was the deal. Have I not been every bit the ass you envisioned?
John: And more.
John: Ally, when I was in high school, I picked up a nickname which follows me to this day. You know what they called me?
Ally: Um, no.
John: The little biscuit.
Ally: They used to call me 'the popsicle'.
John: It's not easy to meet women. Sure I can walk into a bar and buy a lady a drink and under the pretext of a perhaps budding relationship seduce her into satisfying my sexual needs, but that goes against my grain to deceive another person no matter what the personal gratification. So I thought it more honest to solicit a prostitute.
