Robert Goren: (looking at an attractive redhead in a suit) She looks a little intimidating. Does she intimidate you?
Kevin Mulrooney: It's the Versace. Beneath that is a scared little girl with fake breasts, a skinny bottom... a nothing.

Robert Goren: Well, I'm concerned.
Alexandra Eames: For me?
Robert Goren: Yeah. I think he's unstable.

Robert Goren: I think you screwed up, Kev. A little too much rouge, y'know, scent...
Alexandra Eames: There's nothing worse than having your makeup not right. I bet you can't wait to look in a mirror.

Kevin Mulrooney: Alright, alright! You're going to find things. This bitch can gloat, but I've seen her broken. A crushed flower. Sobbing... for her poor dead Joe...and wanting me.
Robert Goren: But not as strong as you.
Kevin Mulrooney: Not as strong as Gabby. But she's someone you'll never find.

Kevin Mulrooney: I'm ready to see a lawyer.
Robert Goren: Hold still, sweetie.
