Eli: You made that memorably and terrifyingly clear the day we met.

Nathan: "Lebakowski"? That's the best name you could come up with?
Frank: Frank Lebakowsoki is my legal name. "Chen" is my.. nom de needle.

Matt: You know, Paul, I am really gonna miss bumping into you in the men's bathroom. I have never felt so superior to another lawyer.

Patti: You told me to take care of Jim Norris. he doesn't like the soap in the men's room. He want hypoallegenic soap, also known as "white people can't do anything the easy way" soap.
