Better Call Saul Season 3 Episode 5: "Chicanery" Quotes
Jimmy: Chuck, you sure this is the right play? I mean, in my experience, the bigger the lie, the harder it can be to dig out.
Chuck: I'll cross that bridge when I come to it.
Jimmy: You gotta do something. You can't let her leave like this. Just tell her what's going on.
Chuck: No. No.
Jimmy: She'll understand. Would you rather she think you're a raging prick than know the truth?
Jimmy: Look, if you won't tell her then I will.
Chuck: No no no! You will not tell her. You WILL not tell her!
Jimmy: I'm looking for someone with a light touch. I'm not talking about some teenager taking a five finger discount of string cheese at the local Stop and Shop. I need: highly skilled, high end, discreet. A real pro.
Caldera: You gotta fit him in a tight space?
Jimmy: I don't think so.
Caldera: I got just the guy, then.
Let justice be done, though the heavens fall.Chuck
Kim: Did Jimmy know his brother was the one who prevented you from hiring him?
Howard: No. He did not.
Kim: You know, she's going to hate you when this is over.
Jimmy: It comes down to this. In order to understand what I was thinking, you need to see Chuck through my eyes. You need to know if I believed that tape was evidence. And I say it was evidence of only one thing: my brother hates me. He claims that he lied to me to get me to tell the truth and I'm telling you, I lied to my brother to make him feel better. Which of us you believe depends on how we all understand the mind of Charles McGill.
Chuck: God, Jimmy! Don't you know by now this is real? I feel this: it's a physical response to stimuli, it's not a quirk. What do I have to do to prove it to you?
Jimmy: I don't know, Chuck. Could you reach into your breast pocket and tell me what's there?
Chuck: What now?
Jimmy: Can you tell the court what that was?
Chuck: A battery.
Chuck: You think this is bad? This, this chicanery? He's done worse. That billboard: are you telling me that a man just happens to fall like that? No, he orchestrated it. Jimmy. He defecated through a sunroof, and I saved him. I shouldn't have. I took him into my own firm. What was I thinking? He'll never change. He'll never change. Ever since he was nine, always the same. Couldn't keep his hands out of the cash drawer. But not our Jimmy - couldn't be precious Jimmy! Stealing them blind, and HE gets to be a lawyer? What a sick joke! I should have stopped him when I had the chance. And you, you have to stop him!
