  • Trivia

    • Denny's scotch glass changes position between shots. It is initially out of sight, but in the next shot it is up to his face. In a later section of that scene, the glass goes from his left hand to his right hand.

    • When Carl is talking to Denny in his office, the cigar in Denny's hand changes position between shots.

    • The shoulder strap on Denna's shoulder changes position when Alan bumps into her.

  • Quotes

    • (Whilst listening to the client speaking)
      Denny: Is he speaking...? That's... That's not English, is it?
      Carl: My guess would be... Spanish?

    • (In court)
      Alan: How old are you Abby?
      Abby: I'm fifteen.
      Judge Brown: Outrageous!
      Alan: I think His Honor means "fifteen is a little young to be having sex". He's yet to have it.
      Judge Brown: That's not true!

    • Carl: If you sabotage this case in any way, the bet is off.
      Denny: I would never!
      Carl: Denny!
      Denny: I'm a neutral observer. Like Switzerland. Only with a bigger penis.

    • Alan: Are you pregnant? I ask only because if you do plan to take care of it you should know abortion is only legal in this country until our current Supreme Court reaches it's third trimester.

    • Shirley: (To Denny and Carl) …both of you should be taken behind the barn and spanked.
      Denny: Me first.

    • Carl: (in reference to cock fighting) And, if he's a really good fighter, he gets to retire to stud service, where he could live the life of -- I don't know -- Denny Crane.
