  • Quotes

    • Diane: Testimony is about your best memory. You go with your best memory.
      Alicia: What if it's wrong?
      Diane: Testimony isn't about right or wrong, Alicia. It's about the facts as established by your best memory of events.

    • Eli: Will they ever dump David Lee?
      Kalinda: No. He brings in too much money.
      Eli: What if he was costing too much money?
      Kalinda: Well, depends on how much money. It's not about love, It's about commerce.
      Eli: So if I made a play?
      Kalinda: It would depend on the play. But if you go after David Lee, you'd better win, or it won't be pretty.

    • Burl: Did you hire the stripper?
      David: Did I what? Did I hire this woman? Are you crazy?
      Burl: Please, answer the question.
      David: No, I did not hire the stripper.
      Burl: You perjure yourself in here, sir, it's the equivalent of perjuring yourself in court.
      David: Thank you. Go ahead and ask the question again.
      Burl: Did you hire this woman?
      David: No, I did not hire the stripper pictured in those photos. I did lose my virginity when I was 14. I do have a secret crush on Jacqueline Onassis.
      Burl: Okay, thank you.
      David: I didn't cry when the Challenger exploded.
      Burl: Thank you!
