  • Quotes

    • Ben: I'm not the one representing Jack against our client Karen Walker.
      Will: No, you're the one who's cheating on Grace.
      Ben: Is that what we're talking about?
      Will: Yeah.
      Ben: Then why are we still holding hands? Will, I really don't see where this thing with Grace is any of your business.
      Will: Really? Well, give me a second. Uh, my boss plus my best friend divided by "should be on the table," yeah. That comes out to my business.
      Ben: Check your math. You work for my business, a business which bills seven figures a year from Walker, Inc. So, if you're gonna be representing anybody, you're gonna be representing them.
      Will: No I'm not.
      Ben: Yes you are.
      Will: No I'm not!
      Ben: You know, it's kind of ironic. 35 years of legal experience between us, and this is the way we argue. And, yes, you are!
      (Ben walks out and Will follows him)
      Will: No, I'm not! Forget it! You want to talk of a conflict of interest, that's one thing, but I am not going down that road again where you pit me against one of my friends.
      Ben: Will, I hate to reopen an old discussion, but, yes, you are!
      Will: So, basically, you're taking my 2 best friends, screwing over one of them, and telling me I have to screw over the other. It's amazing, all this screwing. You'd think somebody would be happy.
      Ben: Here is your problem, Will. You've let your personal life interfere with your business life. Now, I take some responsibility here. After all, I am schtooping your best friend. But you have to set boundaries.
      Will: You know what? You're absolutely right, and I'm about to set a very big boundary. I quit.
      Ben: No, you don't.
      Will: Oh, yes, I do!
      (Will exits to his office, slamming door)
