So here we are sitting in the courtroom, Ms. Summerfield behind the plaintiff’s table, a dying mother with a hole in her liver. Who are these magical jurors we’re looking for who can see past a dying human being pleading for her life and sympathize with our client, the insurance company?Benny
I suspect you think we should be on the other side of this one. That you’d rather be representing the woman who through no fault of her own lost the use of her liver and most certainly is going to lose her life. You want to go home at night and feel good about yourself. Plus, it’s kind of a slam dunk. It’s not hard to find a jury let alone mount a case against a big, bad insurance company. Of course, one problem with that, she didn’t hire us. The big bad insurance company did and this is a business, not a charity.
Marissa: You look fantastic.
Bull: I bet you say that to all of the acute myocardial infarction survivors.
Marissa: How are you feeling?
Bull: It’s hard to explain. Everything feels new and a little brighter but familiar and old and maybe a little worn at the same time. It’s good to be back.
Benny: You know he’s not going to be the same guy. Something like that, confronting your own mortality, that’s got to change you.
Chuck: A kinder, gentler Bull?
Benny: How could he not be?
Psychopaths can be superficially charming. Even those closest to them may not know that their relationship isn't built on any real feeling. Here, look at this guy. Psychopaths tend to be internet trolls, bullies.
Mr. Jameson, look, I'm sure the thought of working with me is highly unsettling to you, and I cannot lie, the idea of spending my next half hour with you is not setting my heart aflutter, but the truth is, you're getting paid and so am I. More importantly, your testimony is crucial to our case and to our client.Chunk

I know it makes no sense but I need you to show remorse for something you did not do.
You were right, I'm no good alone.
Now here's a crazy thought, the person who sent this to you knows who the real killer is and doesn't want to see an innocent man die for something he didn't do.
Sorry to let everybody down, but I think I need a drink.
Izzy: I don't think you're good alone, Jason. I don't.
Jason: You may be on to something there.
