Diane: Liz, less you're shoving me out of my name partner position because of my race
Liz: I am doing nothing. You are the one who got our racist clients to whine to STR Laurie about us.
Diane: Those clients bring in a great deal of money, and they are not racist … They have been my clients for 15 years. That's what it was about.
Liz: Are you saying that if you were being replaced by another white partner they would have the same objection?
Diane: I’m saying maybe they worry about racial grudges. I mean what do you call pushing me out of a name partnership that I worked for?
Liz: That you felt entitled to.
Diane: Excuse me? Really, That’s what you think?
Liz: Yeah, I think that Barbara Kolstad said was shoved out because you felt entitled to her position.
Diane: Fine, let's just finish this case because here's the problem: We can't work together if you don't respect me.
Liz: No, we can't work together if you use race cynically.

The Good Fight Season 5 Episode 7 Quotes

Judge Abernathy: Thank you for stopping by. I've been worried that I was insensitive, and I wanted to get a gut check from both of you.
Diane: Sure, Your Honor. What is it?
Judge Abernathy: I've been watching the two of you throughout the case, and I realized after what I heard last night that your discomfort made sense to me. If my wife and I ever tried to work together, our relationship wouldn't last. So more power to you. I just… I'm a great friend of the LGBTQ+ community.
Diane: Thank you, Your Honor.
Liz: Yeah, actually you know what, Your Honor, there is, there is something that you could settle for us.
Judge Abernathy: Oh great, certainly.
Liz: One of the jurors, the one from the church, I think she's noticed how close we are together. And I hope you don’t mind me saying it…
Diane: It’s been on my mind as well. She did see us out in the hall together.
Liz: And we're just worried that our relationship may have played into her bias.
Diane: It would just be good to be certain, don’t you think, darling?

Wackner: I understand you want your career back. You’re a funny man. It takes hard work to get funny. Maybe you think that’s enough, but you haven't done anything for the women you hurt. You haven't made amendments.
Joey Battle: Your Honor, I brought my checkbook.
Wackner: You're a rich man, Joey. I think everyone here knows the minute you go back to work, you'll learn back you're fine.
David Cord: Your Honor, everybody deserves a second chance.
Wackner: You know the expression doing your time.
Joey Battle: Your Honor, I haven't worked a major venue in over a year. How much time do you want me to take?
Wackner: Doing time means more than taking time. It means serving your sentence, going to prison. You want to come back? OK, first you got to do your time: three weeks sentence.
