  • Quotes

    • (Client Elaine Johnson has now asked for audio tapes of her lover and his wife. The detectives are driving in Maddie's car.)

      Maddie: Tapes!

      David: Take it easy. I'll eighty-six Monique and take care of it myself.

      Maddie: Oh no!

      David: Oh no?

      Maddie: Oh no. Who knows what Sam has in mind tonight, but whatever it is, I can't bear the thought that we'll be in the middle of it, and in you'll walk with some 'emergency' about some employee who needs a parking space closer to the elevator or a speaker phone on his desk.

      David: That's not gonna happen.

      Maddie: You're right, that's not going to happen, because I'm going with you.

      David: Don't do me any favors, Maddie.

      Maddie: I'm not doing you any favors, I'm doing me a favor.

      (Awkward pause)

      Maddie: He's a nice guy, David.

      David: I know he's a nice guy.

      Maddie: He deserves better than this. I deserve better than this!

      David: I don't know what you're talking about.

      Maddie: You know what I'm talking about!

      David: I do not know what you're talking about.

      Maddie: Yes you do.

      David: No I don't!

      Maddie: Yes you do too, you're just jealous, jealous, jealous!

      David: Jealous, jealous, jealous? Of who, of what?

      Maddie: Of him, of me, of us!

      David: 'Us'? Us, you're an 'us' now?

      Maddie: Yes. No. I don't know! I don't know what we are, and I'm having a damn hard time trying to figure it out, because every time I turn around, there you are. And what the hell business is it of yours if I am an 'us'?

      David: I work with you. I work with you for two and a half years.

      Maddie: Yeah, and for two and a half years, you have worked, no, let's say slaved, to take nothing about me, my life or my business seriously! And now, all of a sudden, there's Sam!

      David: Look, I like Sam!

      Maddie: And that's another thing! I don't give a damn if you do like Sam! Sam likes you, you like Sam, who cares who you and Sam like?

      David: Well, for what it's worth, I happen to--

      Maddie: It's worth nothing!

      (Another tense silence.)

      David: Okay.

      Maddie: Okay, okay, what's okay?

      David: I don't know, you're the one that's doing all the yelling.
