    • TRIVIA (0)

    • QUOTES (6)

      • Lindsay: Are you really ready to throw someone you love away for a case?
        Bobby: Yes. I got this case because somebody at a high-rise blue chip law firm recommended me. As the best. I've been practicing law in that rat hole for ten years, looking out the window, seeing those lawyers look down on me. And now one of them came into my office and said I'm the best. I like how I got this case, Lindsay. I like that I'm gonna try it in the media and that I'm gonna get paid a lot to do it and I'm gonna win it. (with glistening eyes) I'm gonna win it.

      • Judge: Mr. Young, please control your client.
        Eugene: Mr. Henderson, control yourself.

      • Judge Hiller: Well, I'm not going to force either one of you off. What I'm going to do is leave you alone in this office, in the hope that one of you might be occasion to see straight. Don't eat all of my candy.

      • Helen: Bobby, this doesn't have to affect you and me. It's a trial. But the only way it's not going to affect us is to admit right now and be clear about it. In this room we're enemies.

      • A.D.A. Ward: And did you seek payment?
        Witness: We did.
        Ward: Did he respond?
        Witness: He did.
        Ward: How did he respond, sir?
        Witness: He said he had a commemorative Jackie Robinson Louisville Slugger baseball bat and if I come by his residence, he'd drive it up my buttocks. Sideways if I prefer.
        Eugene: Objection.
        Emerson: No, I said it. Damn right I said it.
        Eugene: The objection is withdrawn.

      • Witness: I was even inclined to uh, maybe, let it slide.
        Eugene: You were?
        Witness: Yeah. 'Til he dropped off that pig.
        Eugene: (Confused) The pig?
        Witness: He greased up a pig. More like a big, fat hog. And he wrote on it, 'Pay to the order of the state franchise tax board'. And he set it loose in my office. And he said, if the hog leaves a big, steamy, bovine log, enjoy.

      • Jimmy makes a joke saying that the white bronco is out back. O.J. Simpson was driving a white bronco in a famous chase scene when he was running from the police.
