Quotes

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.

Ellenor Frutt: Look, we don't like you, which is true. You think because we don't like you, we are not doing everything we possibly can, which is not true.

Jackson 'Jackie' Cahill: Okay. Okay.

Helen Gamble: Richard, of course you have to report this. Why haven't you already?

A.D.A. Richard Bay: If I report it, I let him win. I-I...

Helen Gamble: How do you figure that?

A.D.A. Richard Bay: He's hoping I'll report it and try to resign from the case, or he'll try to have me removed. The judge might do it anyway. The trial gets delayed.

Helen Gamble: Wait. Wait. Wait. First of all, that doesn't have to happen. You could still continue.

A.D.A. Richard Bay: Oh, you know Bobby, he...

Helen Gamble: But secondly, your life was threatened. A crime was committed. You're an officer of the court. You have to report it. Come on, do I really need to be telling you that? What?

A.D.A. Richard Bay: He said if I told the police, I'd die.

Helen Gamble: You're scared.

A.D.A. Richard Bay: Yes. Helen, even if I did file a report, I didn't even see him. He's disguised his voice. There's no way I could make an I.D.

Helen Gamble: They could dust your garage. Maybe there are tire tracks, a witnesses in the neighborhood who saw a car. The police could investigate. Richard, you need to report this. If you won't, I will. All right. I'm going to call Detective Michael McGuire. We'll start the investigation. We'll put you in protective custody. Someone's gonna be with you around the clock. We'll guard your house.

A.D.A. Richard Bay: Helen...

Helen Gamble: Until the verdict. Now, I'm going to have to talk to Bobby.

A.D.A. Richard Bay: Why?

Helen Gamble: Because he has to know. Now, the only remaining question, are you okay to continue with the trial?

A.D.A. Richard Bay: Yes.

Helen Gamble: Are you sure?

A.D.A. Richard Bay: Yes.

Helen Gamble: And you'll be going for a conviction, right?

A.D.A. Richard Bay: Yes.

Bobby Donnell: In his own garage?

Helen Gamble: Yes. I assuming that you gave him no indication.

Bobby Donnell: Of course not.

Helen Gamble: Does he know that knocking off the D.A. won't do much good? We do have more.

Bobby Donnell: We may have led him to believe that this particular D.A. was a nemesis. We will set him straight on that.

Ellenor Frutt: What an idiot.

Bobby Donnell: And so where are we?

Helen Gamble: Richard's bent on continuing. And you know him. Now you will have a conversation with your client.

Bobby Donnell: Oh, yes.

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.
