Quotes Edit

Arthur Branch: Convince me that this is not colored by your history with Lange.
Jack McCoy: I want to convict him, Arthur. This coincides nicely with the fact that he's guilty.

Nina Cassady (to J.P. Lang): Well, this isn't exactly the prison you belong in now, is it?
J.P. Lang: Your partner's got some mouth on her.
Jack McCoy: Quite a writer's retreat. I don't think it took Tolstoy half that long to crank out "War and Peace".
J.P. Lang: There's nothing in that book she needed to be concerned about.
Jack McCoy: Really? Don't you confess to the murder of your wife?
