    • QUOTES (5)

      • Judge Randall: You're charged with murder in the first degree. How do you plead?
        Alice Simonelli: Not guilty.
        Mr. Pinsky: The defendant is serving state time, so bail is moot.
        Judge Randall: She's remanded. Any other business?
        (Alice confides with Pinsky; Randall and Abbie overhear their conversation)
        Judge Randall: What is it, Mr. Pinsky?
        Mr. Pinsky: My client is asking me to make an application I feel is clearly inappropriate.
        Judge Randall: Spit it out, please.
        Mr. Pinsky: Well, she wants to disqualify Miss Carmichael.
        Alice: Aren't you gonna say anything?
        Mr. Pinsky: Judge, I am not going to waste the court's time with this.
        Alice: Could I represent myself? 'Cause this lawyer's worthless.
        Judge Randall: Talk to me, Miss Simonelli.
        Alice: (points at Abbie) She should not be prosecutin' this case. She's prejudiced against me.
        Abbie Carmichael: That's ridiculous.
        Judge Randall: Let her finish.
        Alice: She locked me up three years ago, just 'cause I couldn't help her. She's got a grudge against me.
        Abbie: Your honor, this woman has some kind of persecution complex.
        Judge Randall: Save your breath, Miss Carmichael. (to Alice) I'm sorry. I can't disqualify an ADA from a case simply because she...
        Alice: All I want is a fair trial. This BITCH is out to get me!
        Judge Randall: (bangs gavel) Enough! Take her out.

      • Parole Officer: If I have the time I like to tuck 'm in by nine-thirty. Make sure they brush their teeth.

      • Jack McCoy (noticing that Abbie is upset): Do you want to talk about it? Or not. Whatever makes you feel comfortable.
        Abbie Carmichael: I was a freshman. He was a third-year law student. We were on a date. I never told anybody. I blamed myself. But not anymore.

      • Jack McCoy: Alice Simonelli doesn't sound Hispanic.
        Abbie Carmichael: Bay Ridge Italian. She joined the Paganos in prison. It's an equal-opportunity street gang.

      • Rey Curtis: His PO doesn't even know where he is. They ought to put a collar on these guys!
