Ally's favorite book is Henderson the Rain King, a 1959 novel by Saul Bellow.
When Ally is presenting her closing to the jury, the boom mike is visible.
Richard: You two, co-counsel?
Ally: Jackie Boy loses focus when it turns into sport. And my being at the table, I-- I-- I think it could work.
Richard: It's just that I have concerns about the match here. I realize you share similar DNA, but it's Billy's.
Elaine: It's not about getting dates. It's about getting a husband.
Renée: Well, I don't see any husbands dripping off of you.
Elaine: If I wanted one, I could just snap my fingers.
Ally: Most men would've asked to sleep with me. But no, what [Ronald] did was rude!
Renée: Sleep with you?
Ally: Well, I wouldn't have said yes, but still. What, he can't be a man and just paw me a little? I am a sexual object, for God's sake! He couldn't give me a little grope?!
Ally: Why don't men like me?
Billy: Are you crazy? Men love you. They go nuts for you.
Ally: Until they get to know me.
Billy: I got to know you, Ally, and I fell in love with you. Remember?
Ally: Yeah. And you left, remember?
Billy: Ally, trust me. Knowing you is not a deterrent to loving you. Okay?
Ally: You're saying I'm the kind of person that can never be happy?
Ronald: I think you'll know more happiness than most. You just won't be content.
Richard: Everybody's alone. It's just easier to take in a relationship.
Ally: I don't believe that. I believe everybody... is half of a whole.
