  • Quotes

    • Tommy: Harry, I've been thinking.
      Harry: Aw, never a good idea.

    • Oliver: Why is this case so personal to you?
      Cassie: (lengthy pause) I'm a Columbine Kid. Not the Columbine. It's a tag they now give to kids who have lived through school shootings. A week before my summer break, sophomore year, a man came into the cafeteria with an Uzi. He just started... My best friend Sarah pulled me under a table. People I'd been eating with seconds before. When he was done, he killed nine people including himself and Sarah. She was just shy of 16. Twelve years, thousands of dollars in therapy, I still get the shakes when I walk on a campus. When I look at our client, a part of me still sees a guy with the Uzi.
