      • Harvey: What are you all engrossed in over there?
        Evan: Great Expectations. You see, Cassidy's reading it at school and I figured it'd give us something to talk about.
        Harvey: That's cool. I didn't know that novel was written by Cliff's Notes.
        Evan: This isn't Cliff Notes, it's an abridged version.
        Harvey: Oh, that's pathetic. You can be sure that what Cassidy's reading at Berkeley is the fully unabridged version by Charles Dickens. What you got there man is a soulless, trite-filled, half-assed, piece of cocka.
        Evan: Harv, trust me. If Dickens were alive today his books would be a lot shorter, 'cause he would realize that people just don't have the time to plow through all those pages.
        Harvey: Oh, okay. But if you wanna have a real conversation with Cassidy about great literature you might actually have to sit down and read the book, man.

      • (On the phone)
        Nash: You alright?
        Stacy: Well, I'm not suicidal yet. Or am I?
        Nash: Well, let me put it this way. I think Mott hired Pangborn to kill his wife and I've got some evidence to support it.
        Stacy: Oh, god.
        Nash: The problem is, I don't think I can prove it in time to save Carl Pines. You there?
        Stacy: Yeah. I'm here.
        Nash: I'm sorry, sis.
        Stacy: I just need a minute to absorb it. Uh, c-call me back, okay?
        Nash: Count on it.

      • Inger: The head of the school called and said that Lucia's behavior wasn't conducive to a safe learning environment.
        Nash: Is it me or are these people overreacting?
        Inger: Exactly. Who do they think they are to mistreat my daughter like this? (starts ranting in Swedish)
        Joe: Honey, honey, honey. Take a deep breath and speak in English, okay?
        Inger: Oh, Joe. It just breaks my heart. She was so happy there.
        Nash: Alright, alright. I know how to fix this.
        Joe: You do?
        Nash: Yes, I do.
        Inger: Oh, Nash. That would be wonderful. But what can you do?
        Nash: Oh, no, no, no. It's not what I'm going to do. (points to Joe) He's going to go find this guy Phil Trumane and apologize to him.
        Joe (laughs): Not in this lifetime, brother.
        Nash: You got a better idea?
        Joe: Yeah, I have to go to the bathroom.
        Inger: Joe, he's right.
        Joe: Wait a minute, are you saying that my daughter's education is more important than my pride?

      • Joe: I'm being sued. (reading papers) 'For intentional infliction of emotional distress.'
        Nash: Uh, let me guess. Phillip Trumane Esquire.
        Joe: Mm. 'Fretrocious interference with perspective economic advantage.' What the hell does that mean?
        Nash: That would be a fancy word meaning that he wants all your money.

      • Nash: You blinded him?
        Joe: That guy's a big faker. His eyesight came back almost immediately.
        Nash: Well, that's good. So much for the conflict resolution meeting.
        Joe: You know, it doesn't take a genius to see why Lucia keeps beating up on little Phil. He keeps stealing her toys.
        Nash: Well, what about the teacher? Isn't she supposed to monitor this sorta thing?
        Joe: Obviously she isn't. I mean, it might have something to do with this guy being on the school board. She's just ignoring him.
        Nash: So now what happens?
        Joe: Well, this dude messed with the wrong vato.
        Nash: Oh-ho, man.

      • Nash: I need you to call the Attorney General because we may need a stay for Carl Pines.
        Stacy: We? You do it.
        Nash: It was your case. They'll take you seriously. Come on, are you telling me that you wouldn't make a call to save an innocent man's life?
        Stacy: Do you have proof that Paul Pangborn even knew Katherine Mott?
        Joe: No.
        Stacy: Can you tie Pangborn to means, motive, or opportunity?
        Joe: Not yet.
        Stacy: What happened? You just wake up today and say: 'This is the day I'm going to ruin my sister's life.'
        Nash: Come on. Look, I understand--
        Stacy: No, obviously you don't. Do you know how difficult this is for me, Nash? I put a man on death row. He may die tonight. How could I live with myself if he turns out to be innocent?
        Nash: Stacy, you're going to feel a hell of a lot worse tomorrow if you don't.
        Stacy: You know, you're not always right, Nash. Sometimes, believe it or not, I'm right. Why can't you accept that?
        Nash: Stacy, I don't give a damn who's right.

      • Stacy: Nash, let me make something clear. Carl Pines killed Katherine Mott, when he is put to death tonight no one should have any doubt about that.
        Nash: Meaning you don't want any doubt?
        Stacy: That's right.

      • Nash: Afternoon, sis.
        Stacy: Any reason particular reason we're having this conversation on the run?
        Nash: Ah, my start relay is on the fritz. I can't shut the car off.
        Stacy: You can't turn the car off?
        Joe: Well, he could. He just wouldn't be able to get it started again.

      • Nash (letting Joe out of the car to chase after a suspect): Go get 'em, Joe.
        Joe: Easy for you to say.

      • Nash: ...I suggest you lay off that agua.
        Joe: Don't worry, I'll be fine.
        Nash: I am not going to stop every ten minutes for you to piddle.
        Joe: You won't have to.
        Nash: That's good, because I'm not going to.
        Joe: You won't have to.

      • (Joe finishes a bottle of water)
        Harvey: Lordy, Joesph! How many is that?
        Joe: Number six.
        Evan: Are your back teeth submerged?
        Joe: Commitment and control my friends the path to better health. (Evan and Harvey laugh)

      • Joe: Hey, next bathroom you see pull over okay?
        Nash: Uh-uh, not again.
        Joe: What?
        Nash: We've stopped three times already. You can't wait until we get there?
        Joe: It's, like, 10 mintues away.
        Nash: Man, you gotta be gettin' carpal tunnel sydrome under you wrist from flushing the toilet.

      • (Joe is taking a pee in a junkyard)
        Nash: Joe! Reel that thing in! We gotta go!

      • Nash: Boy, you sure are drinkin' a lot today.
        Joe: Remember those headaches I was getting last week?
        Nash: How could I ever forget 'em?
        Joe: Yeah, well Inger hooked me up with this homeopathic doctor and he thinks the reason I was getting 'em was because I wasn't keeping my body properly hydrated.
        Nash: So you think drinkin' more will get rid of your headaches?
        Joe: Drinkin' water. Eight bottles a day keeps the headaches away.
        Nash: Lordy, Lordy. That is definatly not a good idea for a man with the world's smallest bladder.
