Dialogue[edit]

Nadia Gates: [inspects painting] Oh! This looks Japanese. "Master and Concubines"?
Walter Davis: It's Yakamoto!
Nadia Gates: What is?
Walter Davis: No, no, the reason for this big business dinner tonight is this Japanese industrialist new client of ours. He's old world Japanese and he's got a wife that's more like a slave and he keeps concubines!
Nadia Gates: You gotta be kidding me.
Walter Davis: No, no, his wife knows all about it. It's "traditional" or something.
Nadia Gates: Tell me something, Walter: Are you into those kind of "traditions"? [chuckles]
Walter Davis: No, I'm actually a one-concubine kind of guy.

Harry Gruen: Do I have to say the words, Walter?
Walter Davis: I am fired?
Harry Gruen: I only wish this was the army. So that I could have you shot... Twice!

Nadia Gates: Walter if you will just drop me off at a hotel...
Walter Davis: [cuts off Nadia] What? and bring an end to this glorious evening?

Nadia Gates: [about David's marriage proposal] I don't like you. I certainly do not love you. Do we have to have sex?
David Bedford: Oh yes...
Nadia Gates: Okay but no kissing.

David Bedford: I swear on my mother's grave.
Judge Harold Bedford: Your mother is playing the back 9 at Bellaire.
David Bedford: I was speaking in the future tense.

Judge Harold Bedford: I heard you were represented by counsel.
Lawyer: Sorry I'm late
Judge Bedford: Uh Mr. Davis would you mind explaining this?
Lawyer: I would not mind explaining this For Mr. Davis Your honor.
Judge Bedford: I was speaking to Mr. Davis.
Walter: Please don't let this man help me.
Judge Bedford: Order in the court. [accidentally breaks his Gavel which ends up in the stenographer's space]
Stenographer: Uh?
Judge Bedford: Mr. Davis one more outburst and I'll hold you in contempt.
Stenographer: I'm alright.
Judge Bedford: Stop!
Judge Bedford: Twenty minute recess [clears the courtroom]
