Fun Stuff

From Inherit the Wind (1988) (TV)
Matthew Harrison Brady: Objection! This court can surely see through this subterfuge. Mr. Drummond, by his action, hopes to eliminate BOTH closing arguments. Surely this court will not even consider such a deception.
Judge: Mr. Drummond?
Henry Drummond: We claim the defendant not guilty. But since the court has excluded all testimony of scientific experts, we wish for a verdict from this jury now so that we can carry the matter to a higher court.
Matthew Harrison Brady: I thought I knew every scheming lawyer's trick in the book. But this. From you.
[Brady stops Drummond from filing papers into his briefcase]
