    • QUOTES (2)

      • Jethro: Oh, you never got it, did you? You always wanted me to be something I'm not, a squeaky clean little office boy with his heart set on making partner. It was never my dream, Mum, it's all yours. I'm a West, for God's sake!
        Cheryl: You're the one West who walked away!
        Jethro: I never walked away.
        Cheryl: What the **** has Wolf got over you, Jethro?! What has he done to you to make you...?!
        Jethro: Nothing. He's done nothing. Eyes wide open. I went to law school, Mum, to figure out the system, play it smarter. Smarter than Dad, Grandpa, all the Wests put together. I only went to law school, Mother, to figure out how to break the law better than them!

      • Sparky: (seeing Van has stolen several cases of beer) This is not what we came for! You crazy?! (throws beer out of the truck)
        Van: Sparky! Hey, don't!
        Sparky: That's evil, that's what this stuff is! (throws another case out)
        Van: No, Sparky, it's beer!
        Sparky: (screaming, throwing a case of beer at Van) ALCOHOL, PRODUCT OF THE DEVIL!

    • ALLUSIONS (1)

      • All That Fortune, Death, Danger And Dare:

        This is from Shakespeare's Hamlet Act 4, Scene IV. Hamlet says to himself, "Witness this army of such mass and charge led by a delicate and tender prince, whose spirit with divine ambition puff'd makes mouths at the invisible event, exposing what is mortal and unsure to all that fortune, death and danger dare, even for an egg-shell."
