    Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

    FILTER BY TYPE

    • TRIVIA (1)

      • Jimmy tells opposing counsel that his final offer is $150,000 plus the cost of restoring the little girl's face back to normal. But later the girl's mother and Bobby say the settlement was $140,000.

    • QUOTES (5)

      • Bobby: Am I to understand that instead of accepting two hundred thousand, you settled on one forty, plus hospital care?
        Jimmy: Yeah.
        Bobby: You realize that we can't take a contingency on a girl's smile? If you had settled on two on a straight cash deal, this firm would have made an extra sixteen thousand dollars. You do know that.
        Jimmy: It crossed my mind.
        Bobby: Jimmy, you said you don't know what this place is. What you just did, I'd like to think that's, exactly what this place is. Good job.

      • (Garson moves his hand under Susan's mouth, and Susan bites him.)
        Garson: Ow!
        Jimmy: Move to strike!

      • Bancock: He was just standing there, like a peacock.

      • Tripp: Yeah, but I still think that if we put in that I had a girlfriend, it would have made me look loving and caring.
        Lindsay: Well, we were limited by the fact that you don't have a girlfriend, Kenny.
        Tripp: Yeah, but if we had put it in, I would have got one.

      • Ellenor: What exactly do you think our reputation is here, Bobby? I mean, who are you kidding? We are "reasonable doubt for a reasonble fee". We are a bottom-feeding-do-whatever-you-can-to-get-your-client-off law firm. That is exactly what we are. And what Lindsay and I did may not have been ethical, it was completely in the spirit and the tradition of Bobby Donnell.

    • NOTES (2)

      • Willie Garson´s Frank Shea character also appears in at least one early episode of Ally McBeal, thus further cementing the "Kelleyverse". By checking on the assorted judges and lawyers in both series, one finds out quite a lot of connections between both shows. In later The Practice episodes, even more connections are established via crossovers to Boston Public and Gideon´s Crossing.

      • Observers may note the difference in production codes in several second season episodes. Episodes with codes starting with PR were produced as part of the first season of episodes and so contain many of the characters (George Vogelman, DA Frank Shea, ADA Renee Williams) introduced in the first season. Being first season episodes, they do not feature Lara Flynn Boyle.
