  • Quotes

    • Ray: Accommodations okay?
      Gregory: Your boss is worth billions, you stick me in this shithole. I can't even get ESPN.
      Ray: Well, if you hadn't strayed from the last place, I wouldn't have had to stick you here.

    • Michael: You were right. I was playing games with you. I was very angry, and I was acting out.
      Patty: Acting out? You sent me a hand grenade and almost killed your stepfather.

    • Michael: Getting away from you was the best thing that could've happened to me. It gave me clarity.
      Patty: Did it?
      Michael: You wanted to completely control of my life, so you took away my free will. Some pretty terrific parenting, real mother-of-the-year type stuff.

    • Ray: Your Honor, Miss Hewes's claim of relevance is based solely on a vacation Mr. Malina took to Palm Beach. My mother-in-law has a time-share in Sarasota. Perhaps Miss Hewes would like to subpoena her.

    • Tom: Conscience is a liability, Ellen. You feel guilty, you unburden yourself, what happens? You feel better, but the people you're coming clean to? Trust me. Maintaining the illusion of loyalty is far more effective than admitting the breach.

    • Gregory: I don't know why I believed you would help me. I should've seen it.
      Ray: Seen what?
      Gregory: That your whole life is a lie.

    • Ellen: (talking on the phone at the prison) Mr. Nye, Tom just left. He's full of shit. Stay on him. He'll lead you to Patty.
