David: So, who do you think killed her? See, I've got this nagging feeling you've got a pretty good idea. I know I give you a long leash on a lot of things and I like to because, despite my better judgment and all my protests to the contrary, I really do consider you a friend. But I can't look the other way here, not on this...I prosecute crime. I get the bad guys. So at some point, even with you I gotta draw the line. I've gotta do my job. I've gotta be the sheriff.
Olivia: The white hat looks good on you.
You know what's interesting about being engaged? Fiancees don't like it when you get out of bed at 3 am to go see another woman. But you called, I came, and I brought our best friend Shiraz.Stephen

Harrison: Shut it down.
Quinn: I'm sorry?
Harrison: I saw you on your date last night.
Quinn: I don't knwo what you're talking about.
Harrison: You're lying, which isn't the problem. The problem is you suck at it. Every time you do it, you look like you're about to cry. You look like you're about to cry right now.
Quinn: I'm not going to.
Harrison: Now. You can't keep seeing this guy. There's going to come a time when you're going to have to lie to him to protect a client, and we don't lie to reporters, because once you do there's no going back. You've killed the one thing you protect at all costs--your credibility. And not just your credibility, my credibility. This firm's credibility. And that's not going to happen. So save yourself the trouble and shut it down.
