Prof. Rothenberg: It's a disgrace, McCoy. My client should be home, helping his kids with their schoolwork.
McCoy: I saw the crime scene photos. I know how much his family means to him.
Peter: But I'm innocent. I didn't kill anybody.
McCoy: You've already learned the Rikers Island theme song. Good for you. I'm not dealing for anything less than a full sentence.

Prof. Rothenberg: Did anyone ever tell you you're a sore loser, McCoy?
McCoy: Only when I lose, Mr. Rothenberg.

Schiff: You got around double jeopardy. You climbed Everest in your shorts, on a very cold day...Good work.
McCoy: As long as we stayed out of appellate court. With their bankroll, sooner or later, they would have creamed us.

Prof. Rothenberg: What part of double jeopardy don't you understand?
McCoy: I'm well acquainted with it, Mr. Rothenberg. And it doesn't scare me.
