Episode Quotes
Eli: C'mon, Patti. An earthquake hits and you only have time to save one thing. What do you pick?
Patti: A heavy, blunt object to hit you with.

Eli: Is this about Solinsky?
Patti: It's about your representing that scum-sucking lizard.
Eli: Well, if it bothers you so much, why didn't you say something?
Patti: Like what? That you're lower than Dick Cheney's bunion to be his lawyer?

Eli: Is it needle time? I love needle time.
Dr. Chen: You’re never allowed to call it “needle time” again.

Patti: Objection! Condescending.
Eli: It was not!
Patti: I have been a legal secretary ever since you were an itch in your daddy's pants. I know an objectionable question when I hear one.

Chen: (to Eli) For someone who’s been touched by divinity, you sure whine a lot.

Matt: Now would not be a good time to say “I told you so.”
Keith Bennett: Actually, it is.
