    • TRIVIA (0)

    • QUOTES (9)

      • Richard: We're gonna win...and get even more than that offer.
        Georgia: What if we lose?
        Richard: I vomit, then dive into it. I brought my snorkel.

      • Ally: Glenn. I think I might really like the guy.
        Renée: Oh, no. This means - Oh, God! Ally, you might have to smile.

      • Ballard: Oh, it's all about blame. You get hurt- file a claim, collect your money. The idea that a plane could crash, people could be killed and an airline could be held not liable... Of course they should pay. If... If a person gets cancer, then there's gotta be a doctor to sue. If somebody skids in the snow, go after the government. They're the ones with the ploughs. Last year, a man's house was destroyed by hurricane. It was called an act of God, so he sued his church. And he won.
        (John drops the toy plane he's been fiddling with. The moment is broken. Everyone turns to look at him as he pushes his chair back to retrieve it.)
        John: I apologize.
        Ballard: If you get hurt- there's gotta be a bad guy. Pain doesn't just happen. There's gotta be somebody to blame.

      • John: I know we're in the throes of scheduling our first date. But given that we're in trial... I'd feel most comfortable... if we suspended our plans until you're finished with the well-endowed model. Um, being the 'jugglee' troubles me.
        Ally: Well, I understand that. I-- I certainly do.

      • (Richard and Ally staring at Glenn)
        Richard: You two actually find things to talk about?
        Ally: Oh, I don't like to attach anything audio to him, Richard.
        Richard: Um, touché.

      • Renée: You don't like that truth. Here's another one. The biggest one.
        Ally: Let me have it.
        Renée: So long as he is cute, smart, sexy, and decent, who cares what else he is? Because after you marry him, you're gonna spend the rest of your days trying to change him.

      • Billy: Go have fun, but be discreet. If you don't care about the firm's credibility, I should think you should at least care about your own.
        Ally: Hey! Who I date doesn't concern this firm! And it doesn't concern you. If you have a problem, don't come to me with any 'firm reputation' pretext.
        Billy: Bitch!
        Ally: Lawyer!

      • Billy: I'm sorry. I had no right to be so...
        Ally: Holy?
        Billy: Holy? I was about to say I was an ass.
        Ally: Yeah. Ass-holy.

      • Richard: Everything happens for a reason, Georgia, even lunacy.
