Boston Legal: Questionable Characters

Lori takes the case of Michael Shea, her former informant when she was an A.D.A., who was shot while robbing a convenience store. She faces a legal and moral dilemma when she argues that the bullet not be removed - despite the fact that this could endanger his life - on the grounds that it could incriminate him. Meanwhile, Shore takes the case of Walter Mack, a man accused of being a slum lord, and is irate when the judge decides to get creative in his sentencing.

Episode Quotes
Chairwoman Nora Lang: This is highly unusual, Mr. Shore. Seeking to discipline a judge for imposing a sentence your client agreed to.
Alan: I suspect we’d all agree to a good beating in order to avoid a prison sentence. But, Your Honors, we’re not in Singapore.
Chairwoman Nora Lang: Still, given his consent—
Alan: He didn’t consent to land in a hospital bed with a concussion and 12 stitches across his skull. And now, astonishingly, Judge Brown expects him to go back for more.

Denny: You look upset. I can tell these things. I’m a people person.
Alan: Ever appear before a raving loon named Clark Brown?
Denny: Oh, many a time. Raving loon. 70 years old, still lives with his mother. What did
he do to tick you off?
Alan: Humiliated a client for reasons of pure bile and sport.
Denny: Said there was a precedent for it. Cited a bunch of cases where the judges shamed the defendant.
Alan: Right. How’d you know?
Denny: Because the judge in all those cases –
Alan: Judge Brown.
Denny: Raving loon.

Denny: Hell, if I had a nickel for every woman I'd promise to marry in exchange for sex...actually, I do.
