Episode Quotes
Dan: (while Harry signs warrants) Sorry about that little incident, sir. I realize this is not the time or place for groveling, but...
Harry: Oh, no. This is the time. This is the place.

Christine: Dan, do you really think that your name's gonna be on that list of new judges?
Dan: Do maggots like rotting flesh?
Christine: Excuse me while I just go phone that one in to Bartlett's.

Mac: They were picked up on a 509(b) violation, sir.
Harry: 509?
Mac: Uh-huh.
Harry: B?
Mac: Yeah.
Harry: I don't believe I'm familiar with that one.
Dan: Well, sir, it's not used in Manhattan very much. It involves the illegal detonation of poultry.
Harry: Excuse me, but I didn't think that chickens were among our more widely-used explosives.

Dan: I just wanted to let you know that the reason I walked out of the courtroom is because there were principles at stake.
Harry: So why did you come back?
Dan: Because I realized something very important.
Harry: Which is?
Dan: I have no principles. I can't afford them.

Dan: What ever happened to the Archies?
Bull: (to Roz) Not a day goes by that I don't ask myself that same question.
