  • Trivia

    • The prescription Abby takes is Alprazolam, more commonly known in the United States as Xanax. It is in the benzodiazepine group of drugs, which can be habit forming and must be used with care. Alprazloan slows down unbalanced chemical movements in the brain thus resulting in a reduction in nervous tension. It is used to treat anxiety and panic disorders as well as anxiety caused by depression.

  • Quotes

    • Abby: I resent him. I know that's a crazy thing to say.
      Andrew: You were tortured, Abby, you're entitled to a little resentment.
      Abby: He just doesn't stop. He gets involved in these insane situations and then instead of walking away...
      Andrew: He won't quit. That's him. That's what makes him a good lawyer.
      Abby: I know, Andrew, but good lawyers aren't always good husbands.

    • Mitch: I'm just, I'm trying to talk to you, Abby. I'm not really getting how you're handling this.
      Abby: Well, it's how I'm handling it. You don't get to handle it and I wish you'd stop trying to handle me.

    • Abby: It that this is different. It means that on some level I blame you for this, for the fact that we are even sitting here right now.
      Mitch: But that's not fair.
      Abby: I don't care, that's how I feel. And maybe it is fair. Maybe you need to realize just how fair it is.
      Mitch: I never asked for this.
      Abby: No, but you didn't stop it. Part of it is me, I, I was there the whole way, I accept that. I chose to keep pushing to find out the truth, but I never should have had to choose. You kept walking right into all of it and we were with you because we love you.
