Janet Ralston: You don't scare me, Mr. Stone.
Ben Stone: Oh yes I do, Mrs. Ralston. I scare you a great deal. And I should.
Gordon Schell: It's a crime of passion, Stone. Pure and simple.
Ben Stone: A crime of passion is never pure, and it's certainly not simple.
A.D.A. Paul Robinette: Himes really does love her.
Ben Stone: Maybe he loves manslaughter two more.
A.D.A. Paul Robinette: If we don't find out how it went down, we may have to offer it to him.
Ben Stone: Well then let's find out how it went down.
Det. Sgt. Maxwell "Max" Greevey: [Referring to the murder weapon] ... and guess who it was registered to?
Ben Stone: Himes, Gilbert?
Detective Mike Logan: Nope. And not to Ralston, Janet, either.
Ben Stone: [Surprised] Ralston, Alan?
[Leans his head in his hands]
Ben Stone: Great. He was killed with his own gun.
Det. Sgt. Maxwell "Max" Greevey: [Referring to a shooting victim who Max suspects isn't as innocent as she seems] That's amazing. I know cops who been in shooting cases that can't remember their badge numbers afterwards. Her husband gets shot, she gets shot, victim of a horrible crime, she remembers every second.
Ben Stone: Either she's evil, or she's two years old. She wants what she wants when she wants it.
