    • QUOTES (6)

      • Ally: Cruelty is funny to you? Pain?
        Renée: When it's somebody else's.

      • Richard: New firm policy. Listen up. Anybody who sues this firm or me personally, we all drop whatever cases we're working on, and we devote all our intellectual and creative efforts to ruining that person's life. Are we clear? I do not want to stop short with just getting even. Retribution? Not strong enough. Ruin! That's the goal. Irreversible, irreparable, irrational ruin! New firm policy.

      • Renée: Here's a flash. Psychoanalysis came to [Freud] in a wet dream. Pardon the pun.

      • Richard: Women want other women to be destroyed, but as women, they don't want to be the actual destroyers themselves.
        Billy: If you find a way to word that cleverly, it could be a Fishism.

      • Richard: (to Jennifer) The women here are really angry at me and some of the men, not you. And we're to blame. I'm glad that you're still working here and I will see to it that the men don't act like idiot sophomores. And beyond that... I apologize, for all of us, especially me. You deserve a lot more respect than we've given you.

      • Ally: Tell me one.
        Renée: No, I'm not telling you any dirty jokes.
        Ally: Why not?
        Renée: Because you'll faint!
