    Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

    FILTER BY TYPE

    • TRIVIA (1)

      • When Bobby and Helen are discussing a plea in the Raymond Oz case, Helen says "we can ask for light sentencing, maybe Framingham." MCI Framingham is a prison for women only. Raymond Oz would not be eligible to be imprisoned there.

    • QUOTES (3)

      • Raymond Oz: You a lawyer?
        Bassett: Harland Bassett. I can't say I've argued before the Supreme Court, but...
        Oz: Plenty of time. What are you, about 65?
        Bassett: 53. Do I look 65?
        Oz: Oh, I'm just a crazy old man. Appearances mean nothing to me.

      • Raymond Oz: Your honor, I'd like to represent myself.
        Judge Kittleson: Mr. Oz, I need hardly remind you that a man who hires himself for his lawyer . . .
        Oz: . . . gets billed just the same. I'm well aware, your honor. However, since most people would seek out Raymond Oz in this circumstance, I see no reason why I shouldn't do the same. Particularly when I stand a pretty good chance of reaching him.

      • Judge Kittleson: Mr. Oz, I have half a mind to declare you incompetent.
        Raymond Oz: And if you have the other half, you could call me crazy.

    • ALLUSIONS (1)

      • Guys And Dolls
        When the lawyers are drawing straws to see who has to second chair with Harland Bassett, Jimmy sings, "Luck, be a long straw tonight." This is a reference to Luck Be A Lady Tonight from the 1950 Broadway musical Guys and Dolls. Also recorded by Frank Sinatra in 1960.
