Eugene Young Quotes
|Season 6 / Episode 18: - Fire Proof|
Eugene Young: Wait, wait, wait... you went to law school, took the bar exam.
Joey Heric: It was my therapist's idea. He thought one way of weaning myself off of killing people was to help others who did get away with it. I've got a case now. That's why I'm here.
Bobby Donnell: What kind of case?
Joey Heric: Homicide! The problem I'm having is this... I think the kid might actually be innocent. And as good as I am, my conscience says I should bring someone else on board with experience.
Ellenor Frutt: So, in addition to getting a law degree, you also picked up a conscience?
Joey Heric: Drives like new, hardly any miles on it.
|Season 4 / Episode 9: - Bay of Pigs|
A.D.A. Richard Bay: I'm only talking about a humane way of getting the testimony. This does nothing to my burden ...
Eugene Young: We won't agree. Get an order if you want, but like Ellenor says, we aren't about to make things easier.
A.D.A. Richard Bay: How stupid of me to expect you people to be decent or humane. You think you're heroes, playing a part in the criminal justice system, the crusaders against depression. Well, you might have started out that way but look at you now. The day to day stench of your clients has rubbed off, you're every bit as vile and contaminated as the murderers and rapists you defend! You bring no dignity to law, you proffer disgrace. Where you might once have been noble, you've- you've sunk into a sinkhole of disrepute where your only idealism is get the guy off even when it offends human nature, where it insults morality! You're so lost in the inferno of crime and dishonor, you become sickening animals, repugnant to everything that's good about this country, everything this nation celebrates in the spirit of humanity! You are sick, awful vehicles of hate! If there is a god, he will get you, you sleazy, cancerous, infected, malignant, grotesque snakes!
Eugene Young: Bobby, if stupidity were a crime, your ass would be in jail for life!
Judge Roberta Kittleson: Let me be frank. The defendant is world-class scum. I'm sure he's guilty of the crime.
Eugene Young: Well, I'm glad you have an open mind.
Judge Roberta Kittleson: Oh please. A mind is like a wound. If it's too open, you get an infection.
Harland Bassett: Look at the bright side, Eugene. I can still get my jury victory now.
Eugene Young: Yes. I'm trying to contain my delight on that.
