Annalise: Her name's Elena Aguilar. She's a fugitive wanted for felony murder in connection with the 1994 bombing of the world financial institute.
Asher: Hooker mom turned out to be bomb mom. I freakin' love this job.
Oliver: I'm just saying, why don't we do something normal for once, that is not sex? Like have breakfast or...Or do the crosswords or whatever it is that actual couples... do.
Asher: Hello, Raskolnikov. "Crime and Punishment"... the guilt eats away at him until he goes cray, and then he turns himself in.
Annalise’s mom: Clients? Don't you know a V.I.P. when you see one? V.I.P.? Your boss came out of my "V" and her daddy's "P". So show a little respect for her mama.
Mrs. Walker: I don't know what he is.
Michaela: But I think you do. Or else you would not be here scared and nervous, begging a girl you do not like very much to marry your son. I'm sorry. He doesn't love me. But here's the thing... I love me.
Annalise's teaching moments:
Unlike many of my colleagues, I will not be teaching you how to study the law or theorize about it, but rather how to practice it... In a courtroom, like a real lawyer. Now to our first case study, the aspirin assassin. Tell us the facts.
Sometimes, we're not responsible for our own actions, because sometimes, we behave not like thinking, thoughtful human beings, but as animals. Such is the case of Gretchen Thomas, a successful real-estate agent, wife, mother. Like many a high-powered professional, stress and anxiety are part of her daily routine,
Sometimes your client wants to plead guilty. And it doesn't happen often, but when it does, you have to make sure you get them the best plea deal possible. … Of course, there's no guaranteeing that the prosecutor will keep up their end of the bargain, which is why you record everything your client says in the room.
Annalise quotes on Jury:
So, how do we win this? Not based on evidence, but the emotions of the jury. In emotionally driven cases, jury selection isn't a science. It's the art of human study.
- For example, men tend to be punishment-oriented and favor the prosecution.
- Similarities between the juror and your client... any personal connections that will help the juror sympathize.
- When police testimony is pivotal to the prosecution's case, we have to look for jurors who are prone to distrust authority … Number one is race. There's a larger distrust of police among black Americans.
The prosecution has leaked gossip to the press in order to slut-shame my client and poison the jury pool.
Never take a learning opportunity away from another student. No matter how smart you need everyone to think you are.
Are you good for anything or can you only do your job when you're screwing evidence out of someone?
Look around you. At the quiet girl you share notes with, the cute guy you have a crush on, the gunner who talks too much in class, and ask yourselves, do you know who anyone really is? Your instincts better be good, or you'll find yourself choosing the wrong people to make a study group with, to sleep with, or even marry. Just ask Marjorie St. Vincent, heir to her family's billion-dollar department-store fortune …
Annalise: We have a lot to get through today. Our lesson... habeas corpus, which translates into "produce the body." Who can tell us how that applies
to the case Fay vs. Noia?
You're gonna arrest me because my grief doesn't look the way you want it? Go ahead.
