Denny: I feel better now. Thank you. Sleepover?
Alan: Not tonight.
Denny: Tease.
Alan: I'm not a tease!
Denny: You led me on. You're a tease.
Alan: Why can't we ever have an intimate conversation without it leading to a sleepover?

"You talk about racial equality, how we’re making progress. The problem with that progress is it’s always a day away. Tomorrow, tomorrow-you love that!-because it’s always a day away. I’m here to stick out my chin today! Today! Give us an African-American Spider Man! Give us a black that can run faster than a speeding bullet and leap over tall buildings in a single bound! Not tomorrow-today! Today! The sun needs to come out today! Not tomorrow, your Honor! God Almighty! Give the American people a black Orphan Annie. It’s just not good enough to say she doesn’t look the part."

Reverend Al Sharpton (Boston Legal, 1x01 “Headcases”)

Particularly appropriate at the moment.

"The most interesting heroes have a bit of villainy to them, and the most interesting villains have a certain bit of heroism in them … I think Alan Shore intends to do the right thing, but his view of the world is very different so, to get to the right place, he sometimes takes a path that goes through a very dark forest."

"Schadenfreude. From the German words, Schaden and Freude, damage and joy. It means to take spiteful, malicious delight in the misfortune of others. We used to dismiss this as simply an ugly side of human nature, but it is much, much more than that. Recently a Stanford professor actually captured Schadenfreude on a brain scan. It’s a physiological medical phenomenon. When we see others fall it sometimes causes a chemical to be released in the dorsal striatum of the brain which actually causes us to feel pleasure. If you watch the news or read the papers, which of course you don’t because the Judge said not to, but if you did, you would see the undeniable delicious joy of the media and the public over Kelly Nolan’s plight. I have no doubt that you want Kelly Nolan to be punished. She married for money, she had an affair, she carried on naked in the pool with her boyfriend. She’s cold, materialistic, unlikable, and it might bring you all pleasure to see her go to jail. But as for evidence to establish that she committed a murder beyond all reasonable doubt? It just isn’t there. The only possible route to a guilty verdict here is Schadenfreude."

"You hear the one about the fellow who died, went to the pearly gates? St. Peter let him in, sees a guy in a suit making a closing argument. Says, “Who’s that?” St. Peter says, “Oh that’s God.Thinks he’s Denny Crane.”"
