| Marg Helgenberger (Donna Jensen): You're a lawyer?
Julia Roberts (Erin Brockovich): NO, no... I hate lawyers. I only
work for them.
Albert Finney (Ed Masry): What makes you think you
can just walk in there and take whatever you want?
(Erin): They're called boobs, Ed.
Peter Coyote (Kurt Potter):
Wha... how did you do this?
Julia Roberts (Erin Brockovich): Well, um,
seeing as how I have no brains or legal expertise, and Ed here was losing all
faith in the system, am I right?
Albert Finney (Ed): Oh, yeah,
completely. No faith, no faith...
Julia Roberts (Erin): I just went
out there and performed sexual favors. Six hundred and thirty-four blow jobs in
five days... I'm really quite tired.
Gina Gallego (Ms. Sanchez):
Let's be honest here. $20 million dollars is more money then these people have
ever dreamed of.
Julia Roberts (Erin): Oh see, now that pisses me
off. First of all, since the demur we have more than 400 plaintiffs and...let's
be honest, we all know there are more out there. They may not be the most
sophisticated people but they do know how to divide and $20 million isn't shit
when you split it between them. Second of all, these people don't dream about
being rich. They dream about being able to watch their kids swim in a pool
without worrying that they'll have to have a hysterectomy at the age of twenty.
Like Rosa Diaz, a client of ours. Or have their spine deteriorate, like Stan
Blume, another client of ours. So before you come back here with another lame
ass offer, I want you to think real hard about what your spine is worth Mr.
Walker. Or what you might expect someone to pay you for your uterus Ms.
Sanchez. Then you take out your calculator and you multiply that number by a
hundred. Anything less than that is a waste of our time.
(Ms. Sanchez picks
up a glass of water)
Julia Roberts (Erin): By the way, we had that
water brought in especially for you folks. Came from a well in Hinkley.
Gina Gallego (Ms. Sanchez): I think this meeting is over.
Finney (Ed): Damn right it is.
