Ruth: Mrs Florrick, you're not paying for this, the campaign is.
Alicia: Yes, and they're not paying for me. I'm volunteering.

It's one drink. Why is that a problem? Who am I being faithful to?

Alicia

No, you know what? I'm not just dropping this. You wanna know my plan? My plan is I love you, okay? I've probably loved you ever since Georgetown. So phone me. I'll meet you anywhere, and we will make a plan. If none of this makes sense to you, just ignore it. No embarrassment, nothing. We'll just go back to how things stood.

Alicia: Are you gay?
Kalinda: I'm private.

Diane: We're like ghouls.
Will: As long as we've solvent ghouls.

Diane Lockhart: When I was starting out I got one great piece of advice: Men can be lazy, women can't. And I think that goes double for you. Not only are you coming back to the workplace fairly late but you have some very prominent baggage.

Dana: I am not a lesbian.
Cary: I know a lot of people who weren't anything until they met Kalinda.

Religion is like a drug, in small doses it's curative, in large, it's addictive.

Eli

Alicia: I'm not this person.
Eli: Mrs. Florrick, everybody is that person.
