Bobby Donnell: We can't put him up there.
Jackson 'Jackie' Cahill: It's still an alibi. They can't prove he's lying, which he isn't.
Ellenor Frutt: They wouldn't have to prove he's lying. He looks like it, he sounds like it, he - he personifies dishonesty, and by putting him up there, we would be helping the prosecution, trust me.
Jackson 'Jackie' Cahill: Why the hell didn't you protect him? You should have been objecting or something.
Bobby Donnell: The questions weren't objectionable, and it was a discovery. Look, 30 years is better than life, if it's still on the table.
Jackson 'Jackie' Cahill: No!
Bobby Donnell: Try to get this - we got no rabbits to pull.
Jackson 'Jackie' Cahill: What about your plan "b" strategy?
Bobby Donnell: A witness saw you pull the trigger. Plus this DA and he knows us. And I know him, he is not going to drop the ball. We cannot win this case.
Jackson 'Jackie' Cahill: All right. Let me think about. Can I think about it?
Bobby Donnell: We're not scheduled to go again till tomorrow, so, yeah.
[sighed]
Bobby Donnell: Take the night.

Jackson 'Jackie' Cahill: Okay. Okay.

Jackson 'Jackie' Cahill: I'm as shocked as you are.
Bobby Donnell: Don't give me that.
Ellenor Frutt: Are you that stupid? You think killing the district attorney will actually help you?
Jackson 'Jackie' Cahill: I will never hurt anybody, Ms. Frutt, but you know what? Our relationship is so deteriorating here, that maybe you two should get off this case. I should find myself new representation.
Ellenor Frutt: So you can buy time? Time to execute the witness?
Bobby Donnell: We'd love to get off, Jackie, but the judge will never let that happened, not at this point.
Jackson 'Jackie' Cahill: If you told him that your disgust prevents you from doing you best work.
Bobby Donnell: The problem is I do my best work with disgusting client. We're stuck with each other. The trial is going on. There's plenty more district attorneys where Richard Bay came from, so going after him will get you nothing.
Jackson 'Jackie' Cahill: Nothing? No. You underestimate the value of a smile. It's the simple pleasures, counsel.
