The Devil's Advocate
Movie Quote Quiz

Mrs. Jackie Heath: Look, you've got three choices - the Holy Trinity: you can work, you can play, or you can breed.

Kevin Lomax: Walter, as your lawyer I'm advising you to stay the fuck away from me.

John Milton: Law is the ultimate backstage pass. There are now more students in law schools than lawyers walking the streets.

Kevin Lomax: What about love?
John Milton: Overrated. Biochemically no different than eating large quantities of chocolate.

John Milton: A woman's shoulders are the front lines of her mystique, and her neck, if she's alive, has all the mystery of a border town. A no-man's land in that battle between the mind and the body.

John Milton: Free will. It's like butterfly wings: once touched, they never get off the ground. No, I only set the stage. You pull your own strings.

Kevin Lomax: "Better to reign in Hell than serve in Heaven", is that it?
John Milton: Why not? I'm here on the ground with my nose in it since the whole thing began. I've nurtured every sensation man's been inspired to have. I cared about what he wanted and I never judged him. Why? Because I never rejected him. In spite of all his imperfections, I'm a fan of man! I'm a humanist. Maybe the last humanist.

Alexander Cullen: What the fuck was that about?

John Milton: I'm the hand up Mona Lisa's skirt. I'm a surprise, Kevin. They don't see me coming: that's what you're missing.

Alice Lomax: Behold I send you out as sheep amidst the wolves.

John Milton: Freedom, baby... is never having to say you're sorry.

John Milton: Who, in their right mind Kevin, could possibly deny the twentieth century was entirely mine.

Revealing mistake: As Mary Ann is dying, Kevin is holding her close to him, hugging her. From the behind shot of Mary Ann, you can see, sticking out from behind the right side of her neck/hair, is a tube and the yellow packet that held the blood/pump. (01:53:00)

Trivia: Does anyone else notice the parallels between this movie and City Hall? They both have Al Pacino running New York City and his "right hand man" is named Kevin.

Question: During jury selection, Kevin decides to have one of the jury dismissed, I believe, because of the shoes the jury member wore. What exactly do the guy's shoes have to do with anything?

Answer: The shoes showed him this man polishes them every day, also his clothes are custom made. That all means the look he has of a black thug is deceiving, instead he's a cautious, proud person they can't use in the jury. Just to add, Kevin knows all this because the devil (his father, spoiler alert) is giving him the talent to do it, not a logical explanation can be given why he dismisses these people.
