Lucca: I meant to bring it up at dinner.
Bianca: But you didn’t for some reason. I don’t understand what’s going on. Suddenly, you’re tongue-tied and you’re hesitant. I know our friendship is 10 minutes old, but I don’t think this is you.
Lucca: It’s not, usually. I have no trouble talking about my clients’ money, obviously, but my own, it just… it feels wrong.
Bianca: Well, get over it.
Lucca: I don’t think I can. We’re friends and you have this wealth, and it’s uncomfortable to talk about or ask about or anything about.
Bianca: It’s just money.
Lucca: Not to people who don’t have it. Money defines people. I can’t do what you do or go where you go or buy what you buy. That’s the great divide, and it’s hard to get over.
Bianca: I’m on your side.
Lucca: I know, and I want to be one yours.

Associate: You’re attacking a repressed minority, and we think Reddick Boseman of all firms should know better.
Liz: I understand.
Associate: Then why are you doing it?
Adrian: Because it’s a strategy.
Associate: Hate isn’t a strategy.
Adrian: This is not hate.
Assistant: You can’t pit women’s rights against trans rights.
Associate: There is an epidemic of transgender violence.
Assistant: Especially women of color getting attacked and murdered.

Ain’t science great? I’m sitting up here, listening to doctors give expert testimony about things I barely understand, and just because I’m wearing this black nightgown, I get to decide which girl’s heart gets broken. I mean does anybody else want this job because I sure as hell don’t.

Judge Brickner

Judge Brickner: So you’re saying you’re using race because the politics work better for you?
Adrian: That is unfair.
Nia: But true.

Diane: What are you doing?
Julius: Calling it.
Diane: Julius, are you serious?
Julius: In Proverbs it is written, “When justice is done, it brings joy to the righteous but terror to evildoers.” It’s what I always believed. Now I just have to enact it.

Adrian: The DNC came to my office this morning. They asked me – I mean this is bizarre. They want me to run for president. I know, I know.
Charlotte: When?
Adrian: 2024.
Charlotte: Are they crazy?
Adrian: They don’t think I’ll become president. They just want a black person up on stage…
Charlotte: Ah, so they asking a lot of people.
Adrian: You are really cutting into my self-esteem, Charlotte.

David Lee: Where’s the money now?
Lucca: Where is it?
David Lee: Yes, bank account? Cashier’s check? It’s not in your freezer.
Lucca: No, I don’t exactly have it yet.
David Lee: You don’t have it yet?
Lucca: No, not yet. The other people in this game…
David Lee: They’re deadbeats.
Lucca: No, they’re rich. What?
David Lee: Lucca, I work with the rich. They promise everything and give you nothing.
Lucca: That’s not who these women are.
David Lee: Why because they’re rich and powerful. The rich and powerful think their God’s gift because everyone treats them like God’s gift. They get their hotel rooms comped. They get gift rooms where they can take anything. Their meals are bought by everyone else. You already got you million and a half in their smiles and their charms. That’s your winnings.

Visitor: Ah, the two thorns in my side.
Diane: My husband says hello.
Visitor: Here’s the thing about melodramatic moves like this: They never work. When I copy something I see in the movies, I just get hurt.
Julius: Is that a threat?
Visitor: I’ll be seeing you two.

Marissa: So wait did you buy this?
Lucca: Yeah, I wanted one.
Marissa: Everyone wants one, like a yacht or a pony. Oh, it’s the swivel latch. I love the swivel latch.
Lucca: How do you know so much about Birkins?
Marissa: I was raised around rich people.

We’re sorry that we’ve been away so long. And now we know that what we did was wrong. If it’ll ease your apprehension, we promise not to mention censorship in China in this song. Starting now.

The Good Fight Short

What Major Brigham wants you to forget is that there are limits to obedience, even in the Army. Apparently, he forgot his training, but I haven’t, and I’m sure you haven’t either. The chain of command doesn’t mean you do everything your CO tells you. Every grunt learns on the first day there are commands and commanders you must disobey.


Julius: Is there something I can help you with sir?
Visitor: Oh no, you’re doing great already. Your instincts are right on the money, and you’re young enough to go the distance, so maybe I can help you.
Julius: With what?
Visitor: I move people up the ladder.
Julius: What are you talking about?
Visitor: You don’t become an appellate judge by seniority. You get there by listening. You just keep doing what you’re doing. I just wanted to say hello.

The Good Fight Quotes

Bad things happen to good people.


Maia: Are we on the right side on this one?
Diane: We're on a necessary side. People I thought with all my heart were guilty turned out to be innocent and people I thought were saints, they weren't. That's why you don't go on instinct. You wait, you listen and watch. Eventually everyone reveals himself.
