    • Will: I don't give a crap about Ellis.
      Raymond: Then why'd you take the fall for him?
      Will: What are you talking about?
      Raymond: I reviewed your manslaughter conviction, checked the medical records. Ellis stepped in on that crazy drunk. He killed that guy, not you.
      Will: You got it wrong.
      Raymond: With that concussion, you were out cold. Ellis finished him off.
      Will: You got it way wrong.
      Raymond: I don't think so. Ellis had no record. He probably would've walked, but you protected him anyway, even knowing that with your priors they'd hit you like a ton of bricks. You took the rap. So don't feed me that "You don't care" crap. When the time comes and I call you, you're giving it a second chance. Unless you wanna end up back in that 4x8 box.
      Will: ... How'd you know?
      Raymond: I didn't. But now I do.

    • Ellis: 10 million in jewels. You're pretty loose with other people's money.
      Barker: Well, what can I say? They can put it on my tab.

    • Ellis: So this isn't even a real case?
      Barker: What did I just say?
      Ellis: You're trashin' my weekend because some 30-and-out old-timer, with a corporate gig calls you in a panic.
      Barker: Ed Marcus does not panic. He's the best damn control agent I ever had. There was a time I was met by hijackers. He shut down 60 miles of interstate just to find me and dug me out of a gravel truck by hand.
      Ellis: That's why you owe him, not me.
      Barker: Spoken like a true head up his ass rookie. Let's go.

    • Ellis: What?
      Barker: Never turn off your phone.
      Ellis: You said we had the weekend off.
      Barker: I said take a few days. We're never off.
