Runaway Jury (2003)

Rankin Fitch: You think your average juror is King Solomon? No, he's a roofer with a mortgage. He wants to go home and sit in his Barcalounger and let the cable TV wash over him. And this man doesn't give a single, solitary droplet of shit about truth, justice or your American way.

But Jacob Wood and all the other gun violence victims remain rotting in their crypts.

Nicholas Easter: I'm agnostic.
Rankin Fitch: [laughs] I knew there was something I liked about you.

Rankin Fitch: I must say, I'm impressed, Mr. Kerr...
Nicholas Easter: Easter.

Rankin Fitch: Well, wait, wait, wait, wait, wait... How did you swing 'em, huh? How did you swing 'em your way? I hear you got ten votes. How'd you do that?
Nicholas Easter: [shrugs] I didn't swing anything. I just stopped you from stealing the thing. We let 'em vote their hearts. That means you lose. Enjoy your drink.
