Quotes

Juliet O'Hara: If you confess now, name your accomplices, I will let the D.A. know you cooperated and maybe, just maybe, no guarantees, JUST maybe... they'll cut you a break.
[pauses, then flips a chair for emphasis]
Carlton Lassiter: It's terrible.
Juliet O'Hara: What?
Carlton Lassiter: Am I scared? Am I quaking? No. That was what I call "lower-case" mad. You need to be "upper-case" mad.
