I mean, these people, they love to argue

I mean, these people, they love to argue

Lisa: [ angry tone ] What the fuck is going on here, Vinny? You fucking up this case or what?

You’re fucked

Vinny Gambini: I explained it to you already, didn’t I? It’s a procedure. I’m learning all this as I go along. I’m bound to fuck up a little.

Sheriff Dean Farley: On a hunch, I took it upon myself to check out if there was any information on a ’63 Pontiac Tempest stolen or abandoned recently. This computer readout confirms that two boys, who fit the defendants’ description, were arrested two days ago by Sheriff Tillman in Jasper County, Georgia, for driving a stolen metallic mint green 1963 Pontiac Tempest, with a white convertible top, Michelin Model XGV tires, size 75-R-14.

Jim Trotter: [ into the phone ] You did good out there today, Yankee. I like the competition. You like competition, too? Makes things kinds fun, doesn’t it?

Vinny Gambini: What is it? You know you have to disclose all of your evidence to me before presenting it at trial.

D.A

Jim Trotter: I just got it myself tonight. I’ll disclose it first thing in the morning. The Judge is gonna have to admit it.

Judge Chamberlain Haller: When you come into my court looking like you do, you not only insult me, but you insult the integrity of this court!

Judge Chamberlain Haller: Fine. I’ll let you off this one time. The next time you appear in my court, you will look lawyerly. And I mean you comb your hair, and wear a suit and tie. And that suit had better be made out of some sort of. cloth. You understand me?

Vinny Gambini: Er, my clients were caught completely by surprise. They thought they were getting arrested for shoplifting a can of tuna.

Judge Chamberlain Haller: [ cutting him off ] I don’t want to hear explanations. The state of Alabama has its procedure. And that procedure at this point in time is to have an arraignment. Are we clear on this?

Judge Chamberlain Haller: [ Vinnie approaches the bench ] All I ask from you is a very simple answer to a very simple question. There are only two ways to answer: guilty or not guilty.

Judge Chamberlain Haller: Once again, the communication process has broken down. It appears to me that you want to skip the arraignment process, go directly to trial, skip that, and get a dismissal. Well, I’m not about to revamp the entire judicial process just because you find yourself in the unique position of defending clients who say they didn’t do it.

Vinny Gambini: Mr. Tipton. When you viewed the defendants walking from their car into the Sac-o-Suds, what angle was your point of view?

Vinny Gambini: So would you say you got a better shot of them goin’ in and not so much comin’ out?

John Gibbons: Uh huh. You see? You were fifty feet away, you made a positive eyewitness identification and-and-and-and-and-and-and YET, you were not wearing your necessary, prescription eye glasses.

John Gibbons: [ after long pause ] Um Mr., Um. Could you tell the court what color eyes the defendants have?

Judge Chamberlain Haller: I tell you this, because I want you to know that, when it comes to procedure, I’m not a patient man. I advise your, sir, that when you come into my courtroom, you are to know the letter of the law. I react harshly when you don’t.

Vinny Gambini: It’s a procedure. Like rebuilding a carburetor has a procedure. You know, when you rebuild a carburetor, the first thing you do is you take the carburetor off the manifold? Supposing you skip the first step, and while you’re replacing one of the jets, you accidentally drop the jet, it goes down the carburetor, rolls along the manifold, and goes into the head. You just learned the hard way that you gotta remove the carburetor first, right? So that’s all that happened to me today. I learned the hard way. Actually, it was a good learning experience for me.
