Ellenor: "Whadda you want? How's that?"

Richard Bay: "I'm expecting you to have the decency to accomodate-"
Ellenor: "We're not that decent."

Richard Bay to DYD&F: "How stupid of me to expect you people to be decent or humane. You think you're heroes, playing a part in the criminal justice system, the crusaders against oppression; well, you mighta' started out that way, but look at you now! The day to day stench of your clients has rubbed off! You're every bit as vile and contaminated as the murderers and rapists you defend! You bring no dignity to law! You proffer disgrace! Where you might once have been noble, you''ve sunk into a sinkhole of disrepute, where your only idealism is 'get the guy off', even when it offends human nature or it inslts morality! You're so lost in the inferno of crime and dishonor, you've become sickening animals, repugnant to everything that's good about this country, everything this country celebrates in the spirit of humanity! You are sick, awful vehicles of hate! If there is a God, he will get you, you sleezy cancerous infected, malignant, grotesque snakes!"

Richard Bay: "The man is on his death bed, Helen. They can't agree to take his testimony in a hospital? They're disgusting, disreputable, dirty roaches."
Helen: "Richard-"
Richard: "And they get to me."

Helen: "Who's the judge?"
Richard Bay: "Kittleson; I hate her too."
Helen: "And why is that?"
Richard: "Because... Raymond Oz called me a midgit at sidebar. She could've held him in contempt."
Helen: "He was the defendant! She-"
Richard: "Then she half-called me a midgit, too."
Helen: "Kittleson?"
Richard: "It was a slip. She said 'midg', then caught herself. I hate her too."

Lucy (after being bitten by her dentist): "I would say bite me but youve already done that."

From "Settling".....

Lindsay: "I thought I lost you." Bobby: "The whole time I was in there all I could see was your all I can see is his."

From "Checkmates".....

Richard Bay: (to Helen) "There are heroes in this world. They're called district attorneys. They don't get to have clients, people who smile at them at the end of the trial, who look them in the eye and say, 'Thank you.' Nobody's there to appreciate the district attorney because we work for the state, and our gratitude comes only from knowing there's a tide out there --- a tide the size of a tsunami coming out of a bottomless cesspool, a tide called crime, which, if left unchecked, will rob every American of his freedom, a tide which strips individuals of the privilege of being able to walk down a dark street or take $20 out of an ATM machine without fear of being mugged. All Congress does is talk, but it's the district attorney who grabs his sword, who digs into the trenches and fights the fight, who dogs justice day after day after day without thanks, without so much as a simple pat on the back, but we do it. We do it. We do it because we are the crusaders, the last frontier of American justice, knowing that if a man cannot feel safe, he can never, never feel free."

From "New Evidence"....

Lucy: There's always a nun!!
Ellenor: Quiet!

From "Life Sentence"....

Lucy: (after seeing Bobby and Lindsay getting married) I guess that means he's off the market now.

Lindsay:(arguing with Bobby while Lucy watches) Don't "here we go" me, if you "here we go" me one more time I am going to scream, do you hear me?
Bobby: Listen to yourself!
Lindsay: Eeww, and I hate that one too. "Here we go" and "Listen to yourself" If you ever say those things in our marriage, I will scream. You know it's good to know these things before we become husband and wife. You know, this is very very healthy!!! (Lindsay storms out, pushing Lucy aside and saying to her, "Bug Off!!")
Lucy:(to Bobby) Well at least you know you can make her scream.

Bobby to Lindsay: I've only had two dreams in life....One was to pitch for the Red Sox, the other was to meet and marry the greatest woman in the whole world....One for two isn't bad......Now if I could just get you to take some medication for your mood swings (smiling).
