Shirley: You should go see her.... Let's list all the reasons not to and put them under 'Column A'.
Paul: And 'Column B'?
Shirley: She's your daughter.
(While walking through the courthouse towards the courtroom.)
Denny: Denny Crane. No comment. The blind shall lead. Only in America. Denny Crane.
Judge Paul Resnick: Do you two have a prior relationship?
A.D.A. Douglas Koupfer: Yes, your Honor, when I was in private practice, Mr. Shore hacked into my clients corporate file and then blackmailed him.
Alan: Successfully.... You left that out.
Missy Frank: Shirley, may we speak as girlfriends for a second?
Shirley: I met you this morning.
Shirley: Aren't you ashamed of what happened?
Ivan Tiggs: No, but I see you are, so we're covered
Ryan Myerson: Thank you so much, Mr. Shore.
Alan: It was nothing,... but expensive.
(After Alan told him about the client and the nurse.)
Denny: Oh my God, we don't know if he's innocent or guilty. I hate that.
Denny: My day is coming, Alan. We both know that.
Alan: It's a long ways off. And in the meantime, live big my friend. Live big.
Rachel Lewiston: The thing is, dad, I can handle not knowing whether you’re in my life or not, but Fiona’s
asking me, “Is Grandpa ever coming back?” I gotta know what to tell her.
Paul: Do you want me in your life?
Rachel Lewiston: It’s nice how you can put accusations in question form. Let me try. Did you mean to
suggest our estrangement was my doing when it was you refusing to so much as take my phone calls for
three-plus years? How’s that?
(Paul gets angry)
Paul: Close that door.
Shirley: Should we request that other song? For my money, she probably did hit bottom because
you walked away and that maybe saved her life. Forgive her.
Paul: I’m not sure she’ll forgive me.
Shirley: Paul. You went to her house, today she came to your office. You two are already back
together, you just can’t figure out a way to execute the deal.
Paul: And what about you and Ivan?
Shirley: I’m sorry?
Paul: Do you still love him?
Shirley: I beg your pardon?
Paul: Your taste in men, Shirley. Ivan Tiggs. Denny Crane, wild, bigger than life.
Shirley: I, I don’t love Ivan anymore. I’m just his best man.
