  • Quotes

    • Diane: What else did your friend say about Creary?
      Cary: You mean my ex-friend? Well, since Creary's divorce, he's been struggling with alcohol.
      Diane: Going to AA?
      Cary: Yes. Why?
      Will: Are we sure we want to go there?
      Diane: I don't know. If you go nuclear, don't leave missiles in your silo.

    • Eli: Why aren't you reading your e-mails? I sent you three e-mails today.
      Alicia: I am reading my e-mails.
      Eli: Just not mine?
      Alicia: Well, I always know when it's important, you'll seek me out, and... here you are.

    • Laura: But it's no secret you've had troubles this past year. You were suspended for stealing money from a client. Is that correct?
      Will: Yes, but I replaced it.
      Laura: Judge Creary called you a thief and a liar. Can you really say those characterizations are inaccurate?
      Diane: Objection, Your Honor. The question is whether or not Judge Creary showed bias by making these comments, not whether or not they were true.
      Judge Dunaway: Sustained.
      Laura: Wow, that's some defense. Our lawyer may be a thief and a liar, but the judge really can't say it.

    • Alicia: If I make a motion to substitute, Your Honor, then it is no longer in your hands, and you must transfer this matter to another judge.
      Judge Creary: You don't know what you've just done.
      Alicia: We do, Your Honor, but you've given us no other choice.
      Judge Creary: Everybody has a choice. Everybody. You're fishing for a mistrial here, and you won't get it. You lose this motion, and I'll be right back here to judge this case.
      Alicia: We understand that.
      Judge Creary: So I'll give you one last chance to step back over that line.
      Alicia: I'm sorry, Your Honor, but my motion has been made. We move for a hearing into your bias against Mr. Gardner and our client.

    • Will: Your Honor, if you believe that, you need to recuse yourself.
      Judge Creary: Ooh! I love this one! With his ethics! Love the ethics, Will. Great for a disbarred lawyer. Mm. Bribing judges and stealing. You know, if it was up to me, you wouldn't be allowed to practice law ever again.
      Giada: Maybe the thing is to agree to disagree.
      Judge Creary: Yeah. Yeah.
