Quotes

[Sam has to testify as Katie at her rape trial the next morning]

Sam: Al. I think I figured out the solution to the problem.

Al: Well, then you're doing better than me and Ziggy.

Sam: Who's the one person who can tell us the truth about what happened that night?

Al: Katie.

Sam: Right. So we bring her in to testify.

Al: A-ha. How can we do that? She's in the waiting room.

Sam: No, wait a second. What if she's in the imaging chamber?

Al: And touching me!

Sam: Then I can see her.

Al: Yeah, but you couldn't hear her. And your lip-reading is terrible, as- Oh! I could repeat everything she says.

Sam: No, no, no, that would take too long. You have to figure out a way for me to hear her.

Al: How?

Sam: Well, I haven't figured that out. That's for you and Ziggy to work out.

Al: In twelve hours?

Sam: Oh, come on, twelve hours. What's twelve hours? You and Ziggy together? Come on!

Al: What makes you so sure?

Sam: It's all the time I got.

[Al enters through the imaging chamber door with Katie McBain]

Al: We did it, Sam. We did it. Of course, it took enough power to light up St. Louis for a month, but we did it.

Nancy: Miss McBain, did you go out on a date with Kevin Wentworth on the 20th of June?

Katie: Yes. He asked me to go to dinner that night.

[Sam repeats]

Nancy: Did you accept?

Katie: Yes.

[Sam repeats]

Nancy: Could you please tell the court what happened on that dinner date?

Katie: Kevin took me to Au Petit Richard. It was very expensive and very nice.

[Sam repeats]

Katie: Then, after diner, he asked me to go for a drive. I told him I had to work the next day. I'd rather go straight home.

[Sam repeats]

Nancy: Did he take you straight home as you requested?

Katie: No. He took me to Fort Cronkite instead.

[Sam repeats]

Nancy: And what happened there?

Katie: [Sam can no longer be heard repeating Katie's testimony] He parked the car and started to kiss me.

Nancy: Did you kiss him back?

Katie: At first, but then he started to get carried away and I stopped.

Nancy: Carried away?

Katie: He tried to put his hand up my dress.

Nancy: Go on.

Katie: I told him I wasn't like that. That I was a nice girl.

Nancy: What did he say?

Katie: He said the only difference between nice girls and bad girls is that bad girls help you. Then he started kissing and groping me again and I started to cry.

Nancy: How did he respond to your tears?

Katie: He slapped me. And I think I screamed, because then he hit men and pinned my arms behind me.

Nancy: And then what happened?

Katie: Then... then he raped me.

Nancy: Did you resist him?

Katie: Not after he hit me.

Nancy: Why not?

Katie: Because... I was afraid he would kill me.

Nancy: How did you escape?

Katie: When he was through, he got off me and I opened the door and I ran.

Nancy: Did you fall while running?

Katie: No.

Nancy: Did you consent to having sexual intercourse with Mr. Wentworth that evening?

Katie: No.

Nancy: Did you behave in any manner that would make Mr. Wentworth think you wanted to have sexual intercourse with him that evening?

Katie: No. Never. He raped me.

Sam: Come on, Al.

Nancy: Who's Al?

Sam: Uh, he's kind of my, uh, patron saint of hopeless causes.

Nancy: Hm, come on, Al. We need all the help we can get.

[Kevin has been acquitted for the rape]

Nancy: I'm sorry. After your testimony, I was sure they'd convict him.

Colleen: You have to forget this, Katie. We'll, we'll-we'll go somewhere-, we'll go somewhere where no one know us.

Sam: I'm not running away. I've done nothing to be ashamed of.

Nancy: Your mom's right about putting it behind you, Katie.

Sam: How? How am I supposed to forget everything that's happened? And I'm not just talking about the rape, I'm talking about everything that's happened to me since then.

Nancy: I forgot by becoming a prosecuting attorney.

Sam: You were raped?

Nancy: [becoming emotional] Twelve years ago.

Al: The guy was never convicted.

Nancy: That's why I try to only take rape cases I think I can win. See, when I lose, I go through it all again.

Sam: [hugs her] I'm sorry.

Jim: Come on, honey.

Sam: Thank you for trying.

[last lines]

[Sam has just beaten Kevin up and knocked him unconscious]

Jim: Sweetie, what happened?

Sam: He tried to do it again, only this time, I wasn't pinned inside of a car.

Jim: [stunned] You did that yourself?

Sam: Don't act so surprised, Dad. I mean, after all, I am a McBain.

Shumway: Katie, this is Nancy Hudson, Assistant DA.

Nancy: Sorry this happened to you.

Sam: Yeah, me too. Thanks.

Nancy: Uuh... We have your statement. She looked at mug shots yet? Maybe we'll get lucky.

Sam: I don't think that that will be...

Shumway: We know the man.

Nancy: And?

Shumway: And he was her date.

Sam: Is that gonna be a problem?

Nancy: Katie, in cases like yours where the rapist was your friend, they're incredibly though to prove.

Sam: That doesn't give him a right to commit a crime. Rape is a crime, isn't it?

Nancy: I didn't say it wasn't. But all it takes is for you to say "yes", and it's not a crime. One word, Miss...

Sam: McBain.

Nancy: ...and we don't have a case. Isn't that right, Officer?

Shumway: Hey, look, I know we got burned on the last one, but... I'd bet my new fishing rod we can win this.

Nancy: Your *new* fishing rod, eh? That's serious.

Nancy: [to Sam] Look, I don't mean to make light of this situation, but... gotta be at a hearing in ten minutes. Katie, I'll tell you what. Tell you what, I'll review this file. Come back after lunch. Alone.

Shumway: You're hurting my feelings.

Sam: I'll be back, thanks.

Nancy: And I really am sorry.

[leaves, then quickly returns]

Nancy: Shumway, what would I do with your new fishing rod anyway?

Shumway: I'd... You'd loan it to me every weekend!
