This case should never have come to trial. But you know better. You're mister independent. You want to be independent? Be independent now. I have no sympathy for you.
You know, so much of the time we're just lost. We say, "Please, God, tell us what is right; tell us what is true." And there is no justice: the rich win, the poor are powerless. We become tired of hearing people lie. And after a time, we become dead... a little dead. We think of ourselves as victims... and we become victims. We become... we become weak. We doubt ourselves, we doubt our beliefs. We doubt our institutions. And we doubt the law. But today you are the law. You ARE the law. Not some book... not the lawyers... not the, a marble statue... or the trappings of the court. See those are just symbols of our desire to be just. They are... they are, in fact, a prayer: a fervent and a frightened prayer. In my religion, they say, "Act as if ye had faith... and faith will be given to you." IF... if we are to have faith in justice, we need only to believe in ourselves. And ACT with justice. See, I believe there is justice in our hearts. (he sits down)
(Mickey is trying to convince Frank not to take the case to trial) Do you know who the attorney for the Archdiocese is? Ed Concannon!
He's a good man...
He's a good man? Heh, heh, he's the Prince of fu***** Darkness! He'll have people testifying they saw her waterskiing in Marblehead last summer. Now look, Frank, don't *fu** with this case!
I changed my life today, what did you do?
I changed my room at the hotel.
Why did you do that?
TV didn't work.
Frank, what would you and your client take - right now, this very minute - to walk out of here, let this da** thing drop?
My client can't walk, your honor.
I know full well she can't, Frank. You see the padre on your way out; he'll punch your ticket... you follow me?
It seems to me, a fellow's trying to come back, he'd take the settlement, get a record for himself. I, myself. would take it and run like a thief.
I'm sure you would.
So Pat says, he says, "They got this new bar... and you go inside and for half a buck you get a beer, a free lunch and they take you in the back room - they get you laid... Mike says, "Now wait a minute, wait a minute, wait a minute. Do you mean to say there's a new bar and you go inside and for a half a buck they give you a beer, a free lunch and they take you in the back room and they get you laid?" Pat says, "That's right." "Have you ever been in the bar?" And he says, "No, but me sister has."
