    • TRIVIA (1)

      • The episode opens with an exterior shot of a home. It is the same house the Brock family occupies in another David E. Kelley show, Picket Fences.

    • QUOTES (6)

      • Bobby: What I'll go home and celebrate a little tonight is that you and I spent the last few days fighting for people no firm in town would touch, and we both lost. Maybe it's right we lost, I don't know. But what I do know is what makes the court room a noble place is that people like you go in there and fight, sometimes on principle alone.
        Eugene: I don't know how long I can keep doing it.
        Bobby: Me neither.

      • Brad: But the constitution, that's like, uh, sacred to those judges, right?
        Eugene: Sacred, I don't know. But yeah, most of them have read it.

      • Ellenor: Asbestos?
        Lindsay: Plaintiffs. We'd be on the side of merit, Ellenor. And the case is huge. You'd be able to fill your other ear with metal.
        Ellenor: Funny.

      • Kendall: If somebody kills somebody, you keep the police from proving it, and you get the guy off.

      • Helen: As much as I feel for this boy, and I do, I can't escape . . . I can't look at him and say he's just a kid.
        Bobby: You can say that, Helen. Because he is a kid. And if you're saying there is no chance of rehabilitation of a 13 year old then, you're saying rehabilitation shouldn't exist as a concept.

      • Judge Swanson: (To Kevin Blair) You ended your own childhood.
