  • Quotes

    • Bobby: You think it's tough defending the guilty, Lindsay? Try the innocent. It's terrifying.

    • Bobby: If I don't give the closing of my life tomorrow, a 17-year old girl loses hers.

    • Pearson: You have some secret strategy unknown to any other law firm in the world?
      Eugene: We cheat.

    • Eugene: Then there's the smell.
      Pearson: Beg pardon?
      Eugene: Well, the jury takes a whiff of this, a whiff of that, gets kind of a hunch for the truth. They're going to smell your client, smell ours, smell you, smell me. Kind of like scratch and sniff litigation.

    • (Eugene walks through the jail as inmates yell at him.)
      Eugene: Quiet down, quiet down! (They fall silent) Just out of curiosity...anybody here that didn't do it?
      (All of the inmates yell in the affirmative.)
      Eugene: I'm shocked.

    • Pearson: That wasn't a negotiation, it's a gift. I was throwing you a bone.
      Lindsey: It's just that, um...well...I was looking for a bigger bone.
