  • Alvin Lawrence: Uh, Mr.McCoy?
  • Jack McCoy : Dr.Lawrence? What are you doing here?
  • Alvin Lawrence:I wanted to speak with you, if I may.
  • Jack McCoy :This is highly improper, sir. I can't talk to you without your attorney present.
  • Alvin Lawrence:But that's what I wanted to talk to you about, my attorney.
  • Jack McCoy : Ms.Gardner? What about her?
  • Alvin Lawrence: I don't think she's doing an adequate job of representing me.
  • Jack McCoy : She's doing a superb job, with a difficult case. You're lucky to have her.
  • Alvin Lawrence: No. She made a mistake, putting me on the stand like that. Now, the jury didn't like me. I could tell. And then, asking me who altered the records? Not that I know, but it made me look Why she'd do that?
  • Jack McCoy :She had to. To preempt me asking the question.
  • Alvin Lawrence: But you didn't ask.
  • Jack McCoy :The jury knows who doctored those records.
  • Alvin Lawrence: I can't believe this is happening to me! I can't go to jail! My patients love me. They wait six months for an appointment. Don't you get it? I change people's lives. They can't just go to some other doctor. This is a nightmare!
  • Jack McCoy :Of your own making! You don't get it, do you? Good night, Dr.Lawrence.
  • Alvin Lawrence: Is there still time to strike some sort of arrangement?
  • Jack McCoy : You could plead guilty.
