: Come on, Ben. They had a little fun in the afternoon. It cannot be rape when both parties consent. Ben Stone
: I saw the bruises. I heard the tape. I didn't hear consent. Danielle Melnick
: Mmm-hmm, and you didn't hear something else, either. You didn't hear the word "No." The woman gets naked, she spreads her legs and then she turns on a tape recorder? Didn't I read that in last month's "Penthouse Forum"? Ben Stone
: Danielle, she suspected something would happen. Danielle Melnick
: Gee, Ben, now I know why you're living alone. Fact: The only woman who would knowingly put herself in a position to get raped is a policewoman. So please, go ahead, fellows, use the tape. You will open a can and a hell of a lot more than worms are gonna crawl out. I will give you a hint: it begins with "E," it ends with "T" and I do not mean "entertainment."
: [to Dr. Merrick
] Do you frequently have sex with patients? Danielle Melnick
: Objection! Judge Keith Silver
: Sustained. Ben Stone
: Do you call all your patients bitches, doctor? Danielle Melnick
: [to Stone
] You've been humiliated in court once and that was with a Ph.D. on the stand. Can you imagine what happens with a psychopath and a drug addict? Please, Ben, drop the charges against Dr. Merritt. Consider saving your own career. Ben Stone
: When I was a boy, I collected baseball cards and there was this one kid who convinced me to trade a Duke Snider for a Gene Hermanski. He said it was a good deal. Danielle Melnick
: What the hell does that mean? Ben Stone
: I learned the hard way. For a deal to be good, there has to be equal consideration and there's no way you can cough up enough consideration to justify a deal for him.
: Okay, Ben, what do you want? Ben Stone
: In a perfect world, I'd like to see your client locked in a room for a week with these women, but I'll settle for seeing him spend the rest of his life in jail.
: Julian Preuss is accused of a crime, but that doesn't make him Hannibal Lecter.
: Hello, Jack. OK - let's talk turkey. What are you up to?... And don't give me that party line about Preuss being a threat to society. Jack McCoy
: When you argue, I have this compulsive need to argue back.
: Look McCoy. My client may be legally sane, but it doesn't mean he's not crazy.
: Before you go anywhere near a death sentence you have to prove rape. A.D.A. Abbie Carmichael
: Are you alleging his semen beamed into her vagina?
[Jack is watching a game at a bar. Danielle comes up behind him and leans on the bar next to him, her chin on her fist
] Danielle Melnick
: So who's winning? The Christians, or the lions? Executive A.D.A. Jack McCoy
: Who are you, and what have you done with Danielle Melnick?
: Tomorrow's Daily News just hit the stands.
[drops a newspaper on the bar with a picture of the ceiling of the Sistene Chapel and a rather unflattering picture of Jack headlined "D.A. vs. God"
] Danielle Melnick
: Goodnight, Jack, and God bless.
: You turning soft on me, Jack? Jack McCoy
: You know I'm a sucker for an execution. I'm just here for the tortellini.
: [to a witness
] You were scheduled to be deported, were you not? But in exchange for your testimony... Ben Stone
: Objection! That's a lie! Judge Margaret Barry
] Judge Margaret Barry
: All questions of fact will be for the jury to decide, Mister Stone. Ben Stone
: If I'm slandered, Your Honor, I have to defend myself. Judge Margaret Barry
: Ms. Melnick, any remarks which further provoke Mr. Stone will also provoke me - and you will regret it.
