[Kuzak and Rikki Davis enter a secluded conference room after her aquital for murder]
Michael Kuzak: How do you feel?
Rikki Davis: Well, I'm exhausted, but relieved that it's over.
Michael Kuzak: Yeah, you should be. You pulled it off.
Rikki Davis: Excuse me?
Michael Kuzak: It was too easy Rikki. The pieces you set in motion fell into place too neatly.
Rikki Davis: What are you talking about?
Michael Kuzak: I'm talking about you and Mark Chelios. We got a hold of the surveillance videos in his office building. I just found out that you've been in to see him twice in the last month.
Rikki Davis: So?
Michael Kuzak: So it was you two. You two killed your husband. It wasn't you and your boyfriend David Schaefer. It was you and your husband's lawyer Mark Chelios. You two either did it, or had it done.
Rikki Davis: That's preposterous.
Michael Kuzak: I don't think so. Mark Chelios is a brilliant attorney. That screw up he made on the will is something not even a rookie would make. He did it to give Mr. Davis' daughter a motive. He knew about Maryanne Davis' alienation with you so he romanced her to set her up, and to set himself up to be impeached on the witness stand.
Rikki Davis: Now you've completely lost me.
Michael Kuzak: No, drop the act. You follow me exactly. You and your partner-in-crime Mark Chelios knew that there would be no way for you to get away with killing your husband without suspicion falling directly on you. Sure, you could set it up to look like a suicide. But that would be fifty-fifty at best. The only way to guarantee you getting away with it was double jeopardy: to be tried and acquitted. So, Mark Chelios sets himself up as the big star witness against you. He carefully arranges those papers of Mr. Davis will to make it look like he was under undo influence when orchestrating the will. He puts the papers away in his files, and under subpoena, he gives the files to us. It all points to Maryanne Davis as the one who orchestrated this whole thing. He takes Maryanne Davis on dinner dates to make it look that she was taking advantage of HIM. He kisses Maryanne Davis, when he's got to know that we're having her followed. My God... you were the one who insisted that we tail the daughter. You also insisted that we tail Mark Chelios. Perfect. I couldn't have pulled off a better plan myself.
Rikki Davis: Now wait a minute. Why would Mark Chelios take the witness stand and make himself a suspect if he was really involved in killing my husband?
Michael Kuzak: Probably because he has an airtight alibi for the day in question. And, since he knows that you were the one who made all the arrangements, there's no way any part of the crime could be traced back to him, even if he was investigated.
Rikki Davis: [chuckles very sinisterly] That's a very good story, counselor. Too bad you can't repeat it.
Michael Kuzak: Yeah, well sometimes I get so carried away with defending my clients that I lose my track on their own morality.
Rikki Davis: Look, you've got two choices here. There's a press conference going on outside this room. You can either walk in there with a long face and say that you were completely duped by your client. Or you can say nothing, keep your head up, shoulders back, and be the brilliant star defense attorney the whole country knows you to be. A winner, or a loser. It's up to you, Michael. As for me... well, I believe I'm free to go.
Leland McKenzie: Ann, there is something bothering me. Rosalind proposed to me last night.
Ann Kelsey: Proposed what?
Leland McKenzie: Marriage. She asked me to marry her.
Ann Kelsey: [slightly shocked] She did? What did you say?
Leland McKenzie: I told her I would think about it. What do you think about me and Rosalind getting married?
Ann Kelsey: It's fine. You two make a cute... well, just an O.K. couple.
Leland McKenzie: Can you see yourself standing at our wedding?
Ann Kelsey: Yes, I'm sure it would be lovely.
Leland McKenzie: The truth, Ann.
Ann Kelsey: I would rather dive head-first into a bucket full of my own vomit!
Ann Kelsey: Leland, dating Rosalind Shays is one thing. Sleeping with her is another. But to exchage wedding vows with that... person who can shed skin and swallow large rats whole... and who can kill a man with just one venomous bite is beyond stupid!
Leland McKenzie: Ann! When I asked for your honest opinion, I didn't mean that honest.
