Bar Association dinner next week, Adam's getting an award. I bought a new tuxedo. I have to wonder who made it.

–Benjamin Stone

You work in a sweatshop, you don't get to wear one of these at the altar.

–Mike Logan

Frank Dunlap: I asked them to plead, Ben. They don’t understand the odds on conviction.
Benjamin Stone: Sophisticated they’re not.
Frank Dunlap: That’s right. This lady gets a cold, she wants to go to Lourdes.
Donald Cragen: They had people here who were slaves?
Mike Logan: Handcuffs. And they weren't playing cops and robbers.
In politics, two choices: do nothing, do something. Nothing has fewer risks. I hope we have a case.

–Adam Schiff

Adam Schiff: You had to lose your temper.
Benjamin Stone: She lied, Adam. She denied everything.
Adam Schiff: With that husband, who can blame her. Compared to what he can do, you’re threatening to take away her hairdresser.
Benjamin Stone: I’ll get a perjury indictment based on a deposition.
Adam Schiff: Good. When you go to trial, invite a couple of law students to provide the laughter. Why I thought this was winnable. I assume we had some kind of witness. Without one we're going to lose.
Phil Cerreta: "This isn't a Mexican neighborhood you wouldn't forget them."
Police Supply Goods Owner: "Neighborhoods going bad, but, Mexicans, not that bad."
Phil Cerreta: "No it got bad when you moved in."
Slavery...I woke up this morning, I thought it was the 20th century.

–Adam Schiff

Mike Logan: He threatened me with that pool cue. This case is pushing my buttons.
Phil Cerreta: The next button might be the Civilian Review Board.
