  • Quotes

    • (Police officers looking at Ellen sitting inside the interrogation room)
      Detective Dan Williams: Bloody, half-naked, wandering the streets at seven AM.
      Detective Rosario Ortiz: Just your type.

    • (talking about Ellen's murder charge)
      District Attorney: Ms. Hewes, Ellen Parsons worked for you. I don't think you can be objective about this.
      Patty: I'm not! I'm not objective at all, and I'm going to turn my passionate, irrational anger against your office.

    • Arthur: Has the videotape been put into evidence?
      Bearded Man: I don't think so. No. Then maybe Patty Hewes doesn't have it.
      Arthur: What are we doing, playing guessing games? There's a goddamn gun out there pointed right at me, and you don't know if it's loaded.

    • Arthur: I need facts. I need information, that's all I want.
      Larry Popler: Mr. Frobisher, I know!
      Arthur: No, you actually don't know! You don't know shit, and you've done shit... which is exactly what you're going to get from me. I ain't paying you a penny.
      Larry Popler: I don't need your money, you prick!

    • Arthur: I made a... big mistake I'm going to be paying for the rest of my life.
      Owen: What mistake?
      Arthur: I trusted too many people.

    • Marshall Phillips: You knew my father, didn't you?
      Patty: I never liked him.
      Marshall Phillips: Oh, he never liked you. He always thought your cases had a stink to them.
      Patty: (shakes Marshall's hand) Good to see you, Marshall.

    • Ellen: (to Patty) I don't believe in the law anymore. But I believe in justice.

    • (after Patty shows Arthur the tape evidence)
      Patty: So, think about it. But not for too long. If I don't hear from you by the end of the day tomorrow, I'm gonna treat some friends of mine at the Justice Department to dinner and a movie.
      Arthur: You really enjoy this, don't you?
      Patty: It's my job.
      Arthur: Why do you hate me so much?
      (Patty walks away without answering)
