Jimmy: Oh, to be nineteen again! You with me, ladies and gentlemen? Do you remember nineteen? Let me tell you, the juices are flowing. The red corpuscles are corpuscling, the grass is green, and it's soft, and summer's gonna last forever. Now, do you remember? Yeah, you do. But if you're being honest...I mean, well, really honest, you'll recall that you also had an underdeveloped nineteen-year-old brain. Me, personally, I ... it ... If I were held accountable for some of the stupid decisions I made when I was nineteen ...
It was slip-and-fall season. Soon as it was cold enough, he'd find a nice smooth patch of ice. State Street was good, Michigan Avenue was better. He'd pick a spot, wait for it to get busy, and he'd walk out on the ice and boom! He would diff it so hard, people would come running from five blocks away.
Mike: You know what a cop fears most? More than getting shot, more than anything? Prison. Getting locked up with everybody you put away. You threaten a cop with that, you make him dangerous.
Man: I created this for children...children, understand?
Jimmy: Well, hey, Viagra was originally invented to treat hypertension. Look how that turned out.
I want to secede from the United States. Now, I got 1,100 acres of property here, self-sustaining with solar power and wells, a sovereign state immune to the business-killing regulations of the country in which it geographically lies. We are going to be America's Vatican City.
Jimmy: Hey, hold up. How come you let me off the hook back there?
Mike: I'm going back to work. Why don't you quit while you're ahead and go on your way?
Jimmy: No, I refuse to believe it's because you have something resembling a heart inside your body.
Mike: You're not gonna have a heart inside your body in about five seconds.
Mike: I've known good criminals and bad cops. Bad priests. Honorable thieves. You can be on one side of the law or the other. But if you make a deal with somebody, you keep your word. You can go home today with your money and never do this again. But you took something that wasn't yours. And you sold it for a profit. You're now a criminal. Good one, bad one? That's up to you.
Thug: So, what you packing?
Mike: A pimento.
Thug: Sorry, what?
Mike: Pimento sandwich.
Betsy: You're telling us there are drug dealers and murderers walking the streets, but instead of going after them, they want to put an innocent man in jail.
Betsy: A deal? I hate that terminology. A deal is what they got O.J.
Betsy: But we came to you people because we were told you win cases.
Kim: Winning doesn't always mean "getting a favorable verdict at trial". We try to achieve the best possible outcome for our clients, given each individual case.
Mike: You want to know why I didn't take that money? Is that what you're asking?
Jimmy: Yeah, that's what I'm asking.

Jimmy: Yeah. Well, I know what stopped me. And you know what? It's never stopping me again.
Jimmy: I mean, what is it with this place? It's, it's like living inside an easy-bake oven. I mean, look out that window. It's, it's like a soulless, radioactive Georgia Oâ'Keefe hellscape out there, crawling with coral snakes and scorpions and - You ever see the movie "The Hills Have Eyes"? It's a documentary! God forbid your car breaks down.
Chuck: I know you. I know what you were, what you are. People don't change. You're Slippin' xyzz. And Slippin' xyzz I can handle just fine. But Slippin' xyzz with a law degree is like a chimp with a machine gun.
