LA Detective Kurlen (played by Michael Pare):
How does someone like you sleep at night with all the scum you represent?
Defense lawyer Mick Haller (played by Matthew McConaughey):
I had a client once. He decapitated his ex-wife. Kept her head in the refrigerator.
Detective (sarcastic, hostile):
The DA got greedy. Tried to pile on two unsolved murders. Tricked up the evidence to make it look like my guy did it.
But you got your boy off. And he's out walking around now right? Well f*ck you Haller.
No f*ck the DA. And the cops who helped him. It's called the justice system Kurlen. It's not the way it's supposed to work.
