Episode Quotes
Perry: You know, I can still hear him in the courtroom, laughing at everyone. "Which one of you ain't posin' and playactin'?" You know, there's a lot of truth in that.
Drumm: Ah-ha. A lawyer's weakness. Empathizing with a criminal despite himself.

Terrence: Gentlemen, being in a ship is being in jail with a chance of drowning. A man in jail has more room, better food, and commonly better company.
Drumm: Now who said that?
Terrence: I said that.
Perry: Yes, but Samuel Johnson said it two hundred years before you did.
Terrence: Great minds frequently trod the same path.
