Boss: The case starts today.
Mark: I know, I'm trying.
Boss: I know you're trying, even though Judge Carmichael's mother is on the witness list?
Mark: Character witness. Not presenting evidence. It'll be fine.

Lola: Mam, you in the galley, please stand. Have you been here all morning?
Roxy: Ugh, no. Only about 30 minutes.
Lola: Let's toss in your honor next time, if you don't mind, and welcome to my courtroom. First time?
Roxy: Yes, your honor.
Lola: On a scale of 1 to 10, how am I doing?
Roxy: Tough question, your honor.
Lola: Oh, how so?
Roxy: Am I evaluating how you're doing your job, or the effect your job's had today, your honor?

Maybe it's best we aren't seen together.

Mark's Dad

Lola: Hey, Momma. Come on back.
Roxy: Hi, Lo.
Lola: It's okay, we don't bite.

Emily: Billy, what did I tell you? Do not talk to anyone.
Billy: Ms. Lopez.
Mark: Relax, we were just talking hockey. Billy is a big Kings fan.
Emily: He didn't mention the Kings?
Mark: How long have you known me?
Emily: Did he ask you anything at all?
Mark: Three years and in all that time, have I...
Emily: In all that time you've shown a willingness to win at any cost.

We are back on the record in the People v. McLeland. Those of you in the gallery, I expect you to continue to behave yourselves. This room is a church, a temple of justice. Remain seated and silent, phones off, and out of sight. No texting, no photos.


Pryce: I'm sorry, I can't believe what I've just heard. A temple of justice? Ladies and gentleman, justice has left the building.
Lola: Careful, Mr. Pryce.
Pryce: For a week, we've been hearing that Olivia is a thief, a killer, who on Earth are they talking about? Olivia was loyal to her employer, Hayley. Justice has left the building, but I am going to bring it back because Olivia McLeland didn't kill anyone.

Benner: Apparently, you got style and substance.
Lola: I am, for the record, mortified.

Ria: You never told me?
Mark: Once a year, we were not together a year ago.

Mark: Benner does this PR thing. Civilians running around, taking all the parking spaces. Throwing bouquets, flowers, everywhere.
Ria: They have bridal bouquets?
Mark: You should see what they try sneak through security.

Well, just call me if you ever want to take me on a date. I'll even pay.


Lola: What are the court costs, anyway?
Sherri: Your honor.
Lola: Court costs on this case.
Sherri: They change all the time. The clerk's office.
Lola: I'll wander over there, stretch my legs a little.
Sherri: Your honor, there's a bench trial in--
Lola: Thirty minutes.
Sherri: I can call down to the clerk's office and have them send over.
Lola: Feeling a little hemmed in. I want to get my steps in and take in the wedding day sights.
Sara: A judge out there on your wedding day is like a butterfly on your hand.
Sherri: Judges are strongly discouraged from using public areas of the courthouse.
Lola: Not a law. Not even a rule.
Sherri: Accepted wisdom.
Lola: Deputy Watkins, does it seem right to you that judges are imprisoned in their chambers, cut off from the general public, and the carrot cake muffins in the cafeteria?
Luke: I can run and get that muffin for you, if you would like.
Lola: You're more afraid of her than me? Fine, maybe I'll go later.

All Rise Quotes

Sherri: Your honor?
Lola: This is a big moment for me. I just want to be present for it.

Mark: Your honor? Your Honor? Lola? I know you're up here. Why does it always have to be the top floor?
Lola: Because I don't want anyone to find me.
Mark: I told you to be sphinx-like.
Lola: I can't talk about my case.
Mark: It's okay. Lots of other people are.
Lola: Thanks a lot.
Mark: The sphinx has survived for 4500 years by silently staring down the enemy and then asking the right questions.
Lola: She wasn't dealing with LAPD and... I can't talk about it. It's just that... up on that bench, in this thing, everything is different. And that detective, I need to make a difference, but I can't tell if this is the battle, or this is the war.
Mark: What can I do?
Lola: Visit me at traffic court in Palmdale.
Mark: Never gonna happen.
