Gwen Taylor: No.
D.D.A. Linda Roth: Juror is acceptable to the people, Your Honor.
[Roth sits and Kittredge gets up]
Frank Kittredge: How do you feel about sex, Ms. Taylor?
D.D.A. Linda Roth: Objection. What on earth does this have to do with anything?
Frank Kittredge: Your Honor, some people consider my client a pornographer...
Judge Walter L. Swanson: He is one. He admits it.
Frank Kittredge: But he's not on trial for it. Weapons and assault charges have nothing to do with pornography. I want to know if Mr. Diamond's occupation damns him in the eyes of this juror.
Judge Walter L. Swanson: [after a beat] All right, I'll allow it. But watch yourself, Mr. Kittredge.
Frank Kittredge: [to Gwen] I repeat, Ms. Taylor, how do you feel about sex?
Gwen Taylor: Safe sex, between consenting adults - I'm for it.

Frank Kittredge: What about explicit sex in movies?
Gwen Taylor: I don't go to see it. But I don't think it should be censored.
Frank Kittredge: Should they censor magazines like Mr. Diamond publishes? Ones that show, for example, oral sex?
Gwen Taylor: I've never read one of Mr. Diamond's magazines.
[Kittredge takes one from the podium and hands it to her]
Frank Kittredge: Here. Does that disgust you?
D.D.A. Linda Roth: Objection.
Judge Walter L. Swanson: [Furious] You're out of line, sir! Put that away!
Frank Kittredge: I was simply trying to get this juror's reaction.
Judge Walter L. Swanson: I know exactly what you're doing and it won't work in my courtroom. Go on to something else. And apologize to the young lady.
Frank Kittredge: Your Honor, your feelings about pornography are well known. They're obviously coloring what you see here.
Judge Walter L. Swanson: If you're accusing me of bias, Mr. Kittredge - be careful. Be very careful. I can bury you in sanctions!
[after a beat, Kittredge turns to Gwen]
Frank Kittredge: I didn't mean to offend you, ma'am.
Gwen Taylor: You didn't. I wouldn't buy one of Mr. Diamond's magazines - but I believe in the First Amendment. He has every right to publish them.
[Kittredge studies her for a beat, then turns to Judge Swanson]
Frank Kittredge: Defense accepts this juror.

Douglas Brackman, Jr.: Next. Marciante vs. Bernheim Memorial Hospital.
Jonathan Rollins: That's mine. Anthony Marciante's girlfriend is brain dead after the automobile accident. She's also 18 weeks pregnant.
Gwen Taylor: And being used as an incubator to bring the baby to a term, I caught those stories in the news, that's grotesque.
Jonathan Rollins: We're seeking a court order to keep her body functioning long enough to deliver the baby. However, the girlfriend's mother wants to pull the plug and bury your daughter.
Arnie Becker: Well, I agree, the woman's dead, for God's sake.
Jonathan Rollins: Arnie, we're talking about a potential human life. Mr. Marciante wants to be a father.
Gwen Taylor: You should have thought about that before driving himself and his girlfriend off the road drunk.
Ann Kelsey: He killed her and now he wants to...
Jonathan Rollins: It was an accident.
Stuart Markowitz: He's still has rights.
Arnie Becker: So's the girl's mother.
Melina Paros: What about the baby?
Leland McKenzie: All right, folks, we're all in the same team.
[But Daniel Morales has arrived late in the meeting]
Douglas Brackman, Jr.: Mr. Morales? Honor that you can join us? How's the arraignment?
Daniel Morales: Um, People vs. Alejandro Cruz, he's charged with the shooting a news vender who refuse to pay protection money.
Leland McKenzie: Any extenuating circumstances, Daniel?
Daniel Morales: No, Leland, not really, I'm trying to have Cruz tried in the Juvenile, but right now that's looking doubtful.

Douglas Brackman, Jr.: Yes, but a pesky disturbing the peace charges remains. One officer used in illegal choke hold, while escorting me to the paddy wagon. I express my outrage verbally, the elbow wasn't accident.
Leland McKenzie: Douglas, maybe you should pay the fine and be done with it.
Douglas Brackman, Jr.: The City Attorney is stopping by this afternoon in since I have an eyewitness, he'll be forced to drop the charges.
Gwen Taylor: Would you mind if I observed? I'd like to see the process.

Leland McKenzie: In my office right after this meeting.
Daniel Morales: I'll be there.
Leland McKenzie: And since we're on the subject to pro bono work, I'd like to congratulate you all on your commitment to rebuilding Los Angeles.
Douglas Brackman, Jr.: While we're busy patting ourselves on the back, let me reiterate yesterday's message, McKenzie, Brackman numbers are at their lowest level in 6 years, we're losing out to a competition. Doesn't take 20/20 vision to know we may not land on our feet. If things don't turn around...
Tommy Mullaney: This is probably allows you time to be interviewing at the DA's office.
Douglas Brackman, Jr.: You bet it is.
Ann Kelsey: Just to be close to Zoey?
Tommy Mullaney: Oh, come on, Ann, it's bigger than that. And it's no secret, I've given a lot of thought.
Douglas Brackman, Jr.: This makes our loss in our attacks and domestic litigation area seeming inconsequential.

Tommy Mullaney: Goodness.
Gwen Taylor: Congratulations.
Douglas Brackman, Jr.: Stuart like myself was a victim of events beyond his control. Mr. Arnold Becker's disappearance on the the other hand? I mean who's kidding whom 5 months and nothing but a series of cryptic postcards around the world?

Douglas Brackman, Jr.: Puzzling Adare responsible. The man is a partner in this firm. He owes it to us to the present and holding his own. Here's my witness.


"L.A. Law: Outward Bound (#4.21)" (1990)
Michael Kuzak: Yeah, well the defendant has freedom of the press on his side, what was published was true. So it's not liable. It's probably not invasion privacy either since my guy was a public figure.
Ann Kelsey: Which is why he was out in the first place.
Michael Kuzak: Right.
Douglas Brackman, Jr.: Well, a couple of queens get mad each other. Look out.
Michael Kuzak: These are not queens, Douglas, one is a cop, the other is a journalist. And they are both gays. But they're not queens.

Victor Sifuentes: Gwen.
Leland McKenzie: Is there anything else we can cover?
Douglas Brackman, Jr.: Actually, that's it.
Michael Kuzak: Uh, just a second. It's no secret that I have been interviewing with the Wall Street Firm. I've decided to go back to New York. My father has cancer, and the doctors give him a year so to live. I'd like to give him a year also myself. I'm sorry.

Roxanne Melman: Uh, anything else, Leland?
Leland McKenzie: Uh, yes, don't forget Election Day is just around the corner. If the latest polls are any indication, Jonathan Rollins could use whatever support we could muster.
Roxanne Melman: That's all.
Arnie Becker: In and out. That's what the staff meetings all about.
Gwen Taylor: Things are getting pretty thin here.
Daniel Morales: Pretty soon, we could get together in the elevator.
Arnie Becker: For the employment line.
Leland McKenzie: All right, now listen up. Douglas and I have made no secret of the fact that our situation here at McKenzie, Brackman is precarious at best. However you should be equally clear of the fact that I poured my life blood into this firm and I'll be damned if I'm gonna give up now. I expect the same commitment from all of you.
