"L.A. Law: Whistle Stop (#8.21)" (1994)
Leland McKenzie: And he went down to the police station to make what he thought was a routine statement, they arrested him for murder.
Stuart Markowitz: And he didn't tell you anymore than that.
Jonathan Rollins: Uh, not on the phone.
Jonathan Rollins: This is unbelievable.
Patrick Flanagan: Has a bail hearing be set?
Leland McKenzie: The DA's office has playing games. I'm going there this morning to see Holzman.
Jane Halliday: You mean he might have to spend the night in jail?
Leland McKenzie: It is a distinct possibility?
Douglas Brackman, Jr.: Once it's set, Ann, can you handle the bail hearing?
Ann Kelsey: Sure, the only problem is they won't be able to talk to Arnie until this afternoon in court all morning.
Jane Halliday: I'll - I'll go talk to him.
Leland McKenzie: Jonathan, you should talk to the police. Find out the names of all the officers involved. Get as much as you can.
Jonathan Rollins: Right.
Stuart Markowitz: We may also need the services of a private investigator.
Eli Levinson: I'll call Jinx.
Douglas Brackman, Jr.: All of Arnold's active clients need to be contacted reassured and, uh, assigned to other members at the firm, until Arnold is available again.
Leland McKenzie: You and I should make those calls, Douglas.
Douglas Brackman, Jr.: And under no circumstances, should anyone talk to the press. I wish you were a statement and emphasizing our supportant belief in Arnold's innocence.
Patrick Flanagan: I can do that, I have some contact with the LA Times.
Stuart Markowitz: I'll talk to the office staff.
Douglas Brackman, Jr.: Good.
[Douglas has closed his gold hunter case pocket watch that the time is up]

Patrick Flanagan: There's no chance he actually did it, is there?
[Jane will help get Arnie out from jail. Jonathan will be talking to the police]
Leland McKenzie: We will proceed on the assumption there is not.
[Eli will talk to the private investigator Jinx to trail someone, accused of framing Arnie, Patrick will be leaving to speak to LA Times, and Stuart wants Ann Kelsey to get to the bail hearing that would free Arnie Becker in court]


"L.A. Law: Tunnel of Love (#8.19)" (1994)
Dr. Frederick Schodel, DDS: What do you want?
Patrick Flanagan: I want to know how we can resolve this case.
Dr. Frederick Schodel, DDS: It was resolved. What do you want, Mr. Flanagan? Shouldn't my lawyer be here?
Patrick Flanagan: I want $750,000.
Dr. Frederick Schodel, DDS: Come again?
Patrick Flanagan: One payment to me, non-negotiable. A check made right now.
Dr. Frederick Schodel, DDS: In case no one mentioned it to you, I won that case. According to my lawyer, you have less chance of that then at appeal. So if you're gonna threaten me with that, forget it.
Patrick Flanagan: I don't think your lawyer is taking all the facts into account.
Dr. Frederick Schodel, DDS: What facts?
Patrick Flanagan: Things that should become public which might ruin your reputation and practice.
Dr. Frederick Schodel, DDS: What things?
Patrick Flanagan: Like what happened to your practice in Philadelphia over 10 years ago.
Dr. Frederick Schodel, DDS: I never had a practice in Philadelphia.
Patrick Flanagan: I think you did. I think you had to pack up and leave Philadelphia just like you did in Framingham, Massachusetts a year before and Essex, New Hampshire two years before that.
Dr. Frederick Schodel, DDS: What are you talking about? I've never been to any of those places in my life!
Patrick Flanagan: I think you have. What do you think it would do to your reputation if it would come out that you left those places after you were caught by your co-workers molesting female patients while they were anesthetized?
Dr. Frederick Schodel, DDS: Who told you that?
Patrick Flanagan: [smirks] I really don't recall. It could have been... at a party, or some kind of professional function. All I will say is that I heard it and took note of it.

Patrick Flanagan: You wanted to see me?
Leland McKenzie: Yes, it's about the Rudolph case.
Patrick Flanagan: I know that Arnold says I engineered the whole thing and went behind his back, but that's really not the case. He's just jealous that I thought up of the settlement before he did. This all has been a misunderstanding.
Leland McKenzie: You know, Patrick... you always seem to have a perfectly logical answer and explanation to every question, every issue, and every accusation that is brought to you. A little too perfect, I might add. I always looked upon McKenzie Brackman as a family then a law firm. I want the people who work for me to be happy and I also want them to be honorable. However, there are some cases and clients that we will not take on. There are some things we will not do.
Patrick Flanagan: I don't believe I did anything wrong in this case, sir. Becker just has it out for me because he thinks I upstaged him with this case over...
Leland McKenzie: [cutting him off; firm tone] I don't want to talk about Arnold Becker. I want to talk about you. I will not tolerate lying or deception from anyone that works for me, not even from you. I am going to ask you one question this one time, and I want you to look me in the eye and tell me the truth. Your answer will stay in this office between you and me. No one else will know. If you tell me the truth, I will stand by you and help you out any way I can.
Patrick Flanagan: All right.
Leland McKenzie: Did you secretly meet with Mr. Rudolph and forced or intimidated him into accepting a nine million dollar settlement to be sent from him to our firm and then afterwords, under Mr. Rudolph's behalf, did you give assurances to Arnold Becker that Mr. Rudolph's daughter would not testify against him?
Patrick Flanagan: [short pause; impassive tone] No, I did not.
[there is another pause as Leland is clearly not sure this time if Patrick is telling the truth -which he is not-; but Leland seems to accept it anyway and lets the matter drop]
Leland McKenzie: Okay.


"L.A. Law: How Am I Driving? (#8.20)" (1994)
Patrick Flanagan: Why don't we just give him another minute?
Douglas Brackman, Jr.: I think not. Let's get started. Ruland vs. Wayside...
Jonathan Rollins: Uh. uh, uh, uh, Douglas. There he is.
[Eli has arrived by bus]
Leland McKenzie: OK.
Eli Levinson: Sorry. Sorry.
Leland McKenzie: Uh-huh.
Eli Levinson: The buses were running late.
Arnie Becker: You actually take a bus?
Eli Levinson: Yes.
Stuart Markowitz: Unbelievable, isn't it?
Eli Levinson: It's really not that unbelievable.
Douglas Brackman, Jr.: And you're doing it for some kind of ecological reason, Eli?
Eli Levinson: I'm doing it because I don't have a driver's license. Denise is giving me lessons however, I'm inching on being ready to take the road test. And I'm about to buy a car
Ann Kelsey: You can buy a car before you get your license?
Eli Levinson: And to all partners just settle a case of mine is they send me a very large check. I thought I did something extravagant.
Jonathan Rollins: What are you getting?
Eli Levinson: I have no idea. Denise is set me up a car broker who presumably will get me through this is painlessly as possible.
Arnie Becker: Ultimately when buying a car, keep one question uppermost in mind. How am I going to feel when I'm standing in front of a restaurant? The ballet brings me my car.
Douglas Brackman, Jr.: Thank you, Arnold.


"L.A. Law: Finish Line (#8.22)" (1994)

Eli Levinson: How do you know so much about this?
Stuart Markowitz: Oh, I've been in consultation all week. Uh, very good friend of mine wanna believing urologist out here spoken with him. I've spoken with Mel Silverblatt when you know he's at sloan-ketting.
Patrick Flanagan: You convinced his prostate cancer?
Stuart Markowitz: Oh, absolutely prostate.
Denise Iannello: Well, look just so I know, what a student surprise birthday party, I've got a lot of organizing to do.
Douglas Brackman, Jr.: Let's see how he is when it comes in.
