- "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.
- "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.
