Quotes Edit

"You work for Local 8157, is that correct, Mr. Palmieri?"
"That's right."
"And you take orders from your cousin Eddie Palmieri?"
"I take orders from the rank and file."
"Just what do you do for the rank and file, sir?"
"I promote union solidarity and discipline."

- Benjamin Stone and Joey Palmieri


"You look like the messenger who’s afraid he’s going to be killed."
"I'm afraid the message might kill the recipient."

- Adam Schiff and Benjamin Stone


"Marshall had a lot of international interests."
"And what about enemies?"
"Well, ours is a competitive business."
"But everybody loved him, right?"
"Everybody respected what he accomplished."
"Which was?"
"Which was overcoming his humble beginnings and amassing a net worth in the hundreds of millions. This is a terrible moment for our company." (The morning trading bell sounds.) "Excuse me." (The traders disperse and scramble furiously, answering ringing phones and shouting across the room)
"I guess the moment is over."

- Walter Fairlee, Phil Cerreta and Mike Logan


"You want documents, you got documents. My client is merely satisfying the subpoena."
"We asked for documents relating to the union’s dealings with Marshall McFadden, not the history of the world parts one and two."

- Palmieri's Lawyer and Phil Cerreta


"I was ready to indict McFadden with eight counts of bank fraud. Next thing I knew, they were changing the locks on my office door."
"They?"
"They."

- William Cousins and Paul Robinette


"I'm getting behind here, counselor. May I ask why Mr. Vilanis refuses to enter a plea?"
"He wants to represent himself."
"I hate pro se cases. Did he bring his own soapbox, or does he expect the court to provide one?"

- Judge Berman and Alice Cantwell


"Thank you, Adam. I could use a friend."
"You always did, Dwight. That was always the problem."

- Dwight Corcoran and Adam Schiff


"The insurance commissioner wouldn't know a tool-and-die maker from a cheeseburger."

- Simon Vilanis
