George Sr. Quote #103

Quote from George Sr. in For British Eyes Only

George Sr.: You got to get me out of here.
Michael: You're the one that said no to prison.
George Sr.: I was wrong. There, you just have it to shut your eyes and take it. Here, you have shut your eyes and give it. Now, listen, we can't go in there and plead "not guilty". We have to have someone big behind us, our own private Matlock. So I made calls and I got him.
Michael: Got who?
George Sr.: Andy Griffith. What, you never saw Matlock?
Michael: Not a real attorney, Dad.
George Sr.: Now, for ten grand, he'll actually sit behind us in court and read the paper. For 15, he'll actually sit at the defense table. For $20,000, he'll twice lean forward and whisper something in your ear. Oh. White suit, that's extra.
Michael: Boy, that's an awful lot of money for the stupidest idea I've ever heard.
George Sr.: The juries love him.

Quote from George Sr.

Michael: And you want to go after these people?
George Sr.: Well, yes, it takes a little courage, Michael. I know that's not your strongest suit. You're even scared to ask a girl out on a date.
Michael: What? Why does everybody think that I'm scared of girls?
George Sr.: Because you're a chicken. You're a chicken! Coo-coo ca-cha! Coo-coo ca-cha!
Michael: What are you doing?
Lucille: Michael and women?! A-koodle-doodle doo!
Lindsay: That's what I was just telling him. Cha! Cha!
Michael: Look, I haven't found the right girl. When I do, I will ask her out. Has anyone in this family ever even seen a chicken?

Quote from Lindsay

Michael: I knew you wouldn't have the gut to go through with the divorce.
Lindsay: You're one to talk. You haven't had a serious relationship since your wife. And you guys, weren't even speaking toward the end.
Michael: Lot of that was the coma.
Lindsay: Yeah, I've heard your side of it.

Quote from Buster

Buster: Mother, have you seen my rubber hand?
