Family Law Season 1 Episode 2 Quotes

Harry: It would be futile to take on a pro bono case you can't possibly win.
Daniel: What makes you think we can't win?
Harry: You're kidding, right? They can't possibly raise a child.
Abigail: Don't say it.
Harry: The law is clear. We must act in the best interest of the child. Back me on this, Abigail.
Abigail: I think it's highly unlikely they’re capable of raising a child, but neither were you, but you had three. I'm willing to give it a go.

Now we have to prove we can be good parents or else they’ll take away our baby.
