Beatrice McArdle: You know, I've always found your inflexibility truly irritating, James.
James Steel: Then please don't let me keep you.
Beatrice McArdle: Manslaughter — provocation, have we got ourselves a deal?
James Steel [ scoffs ]: This was a straight-up revenge killing, Bea, you know it.
Beatrice McArdle: Wha— you think she wasn't provoked? He-he kidnapped and murdered her only child!
James Steel: No, that hadn't been proved. Nick Carlton died an innocent man.
Beatrice McArdle: Well, why don't you tell that to the jury. We are on the side of the angels, James. You force a murder trial, and you are the one who's going to end up with egg on his face.
