Bumbling Ally Mcbeal quotations

Sex for men: when it's right, it's right; when it's wrong, it's still right.

It's something like 70% of American adults are obese, and the rest of them are women on Ally McBeal.

Never trust a second thought. Where there is two there is three. You will end up thinking forever.

Let me tell you something, I didn't become a lawyer because I like the law, the law sucks. It's boring, but it can also be used as a weapon. You want to bankrupt somebody? Cost him everything he's worked for? Make his wife leave him, even make his kids cry...yeah, we can do that.
