    Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

    FILTER BY TYPE

    • TRIVIA (2)

    • QUOTES (4)

      • Richard: You don't need to finish. We already know what you're going to say. You got a sick, depraved, murdering client like always. And like always, the more truth you can keep under wraps, the better. It is a disgrace regularly visited upon this room by you and every other defense attorney.

      • Ellenor: Do you have a second?
        Judge Kittleson: Would this be ex parte?
        Ellenor: Well, it uh, may or may not be. I'll let you be the judge.
        Judge Kittleson: Gee, thanks.

      • Bobby: Your Honor, it's inconceivable for you not to declare a mistrial now.
        Judge Kimball: That's not going to happen. The trial goes on. You want to beat him up in the parking lot, you have my blessing. But the trial goes on.

      • Ellenor: That's an awfully big knife you have there, George.
        Vogleman: All the better to cut your head off with, my dear.

    • NOTES (1)

      • You can tell this episode is a season opener (number 4) because several cast members have new hairdos; Bobby has sideburns, Rebecca's taken out her braids and Ellenor has darkened her hair color.

    • ALLUSIONS (2)

      • Ellenor: That's an awfully big knife you have there, George.
        Vogleman: All the better to cut your head off with, my dear.

        George's quip is a reference to the Big Bad Wolf in the story of Little Red Riding Hood.

      • O.J. Simpson must be the producer's favorite allusion. In 1995, Simpson was acquitted for the 1994 murders Nicole Simpson and her friend Ron Goldman. In 1997, Simpson was found responsible for the deaths in civil court. Both cases are referred to in this episode.
