The Good Fight Season 4 Episode 4: "The Gang is Satirized and Doesn't Like It" Quotes
Firth: Wait, quiet. We’re all on the same time. Brian, are you blocking Diane’s internet access?
Brian: I am, but only defensively because she’s poaching my clients.
Diane: No, that is a lie. You blocked me when I asked about Memo 618.
Firth: What is that?
Diane: I don’t know, but I’ve had two pro bono cases disappear when the judge was given Memo 618.
Brian: That has nothing to do with me.
Firth: OK, here’s what I suggest. Diane, you won’t dig into Brian’s clients. Brian, you won’t block Diane’s internet access. Understood?
Marissa: I’m bored. I want to be entertained.
Caleb: You want me to sing to you?
Marissa: No, tell me a joke.
Caleb: Man walks into a zoo. The only animal in the entire zoo is a dog. It’s a Shih Tzu. Want me to explain it to you?
Marissa: No, I get it. I’m just not laughing.
Diane: Oh, who is representing you?
Kovac: Me, just me.
Diane: How about I represent you.
Kovac: Why would you do that?
Marissa: Yeah, why?
Diane: Well, it sounds like an injustice was done to this woman, but for her to blame a lawyer of your stature, it just seems like a further injustice.
Charlotte: So here we are for some culture: C**ksucker in Chains.
Adrian: The asterisk means it’s classy.
Adrian: He’s satirizing our firm, Liz. He has me as some pathetic masochistic mother*cker who’s craving domination from Diane Lockhart.
Liz: Diane, she’s in it too?
Adrian: A character based on her.
Liz: So this guy wrote a play to get back at us. So what?
Adrian: They gave him a standing ovation, Liz. People stood and cheered.
Marissa: How do I know you?
Jumaane: Jumaane Jenkins. I used to work here.
Marissa: Oh, you’re Alan North. You’re the druggie.
Jumaane: I wasn’t a druggie. Oh my god, how they rewrite history here.
Marissa: Well, they fired you.
Jumaane: Because they wanted me out, because they didn’t want an independent mind.
Marissa: Yeah, that’s how that works.
Lawyer: When Ms. Garnett’s lawsuit was dismissed, what steps did you take to challenge the dismissal?
Gabe: What steps?
Gabe: Well, I got angry.
Lawyer: Good, and?
Gabe: And I wrote a very, very, very detailed letter to the judge.
Lawyer: Did you get a response?
Lawyer: Did you send it?
Gabe: Well, no, but that wasn’t my fault. The mail delivery in my office has been a disaster. Do you know that song by Bob Dylan, “Everything is Broken”? It’s so true.
Liz: You told the audience during a talkback Q&A that you based your characters on real life people.
Jumaane: No, I think you misheard.
Caleb: This play is based on real people, not types, like the divorcing white guy is based on a real client.
Jumaane: What a surprise? Another white attorney here.
Caleb: Another white attorney with a photographic memory.
So that’s you? Your work’s more exciting than I thought.Kurt [to Diane]
I got into the law because it mattered. In a world where there is so much nihilism and cynicism, the law was a crystal guide, a path forward, but every day the world chips away at this. Lawyers get more cynical. People pay off judges, they threaten them or the judges just give in, and then there’s nothing, emptiness. What is injustice? It’s people giving up.Julian Play Counterpart
If you were a better lawyer, you would know right now you are – what’s the Latin term? – fucked.Adrian
Diane: No, you did not?
Brian: No, I requested your ass.
Diane: And what does that mean?
Brian: It means your ass.
Diane: Are you refusing to answer?
Brian: No, I am answering. I have requested your ass. Do you want me to spell it out for you?
Diane: I have asked you whether you cited a legal ruling in requesting this recess.
Brian: Yes, and I have answered.
Diane: Would you like me to call the judge and insist on your compliance?
Brian: I would like you to call your ass.
Diane [to stenographer]: Are you getting this?
Brian: Here, let me help. I have told the plaintiff’s lawyer to call her own ass.
Gabe: And people make fun of the way I practice law.
