    • QUOTES (2)

      • Perry: Don't ever change the menu, Clay. You couldn't afford to defend all the cardiac cases. (Della snickers) Old customers who drop dead from the shock.
        Clay (directed at Della): Hmm. Quite a comedian, your boss, isn't he? If the law business ever slows down he could start a whole new career ... getting laughs. (Della laughs)

      • Della: Tell me something, Perry. Who's paying Paul? The Drake Detective Agency isn't a philanthropic institution.
        Perry: Yes I know.
        Della: And for that matter, who's paying you?
        Perry: You mean why did I decide to take the case? Oh perhaps the way the judge talked to me, perhaps the way she looked under the restraining sheet, helpless, alone.
        Della: If ever a case were open and shut. Why do you want to get involved?
        Perry: Because among other things I believe that truth and justice should not be influenced by monetary gain. I've always thought that everyone was equal before the law. For someone in Carla's position that might not be precisely true.
