Here are some memorable quotes from "Law Abiding Citizen".
Note from the Webmaster: I messed up with the database once, and some quotes are now showing under the wrong film :-/... I am trying to fix this, but you can always report such mistakes.
[Upon being informed that his cot is bolted to the floor]
How carefully should I tread? Because apparently, I just killed two people! And you are about to let me walk right out that door! How misguided are you!? I feed you a couple of bullshit legal precedents, and there you go - you jump on it like a bitch in heat!
[After being granted bail for murder]
[To Shelton] As a prosecutor, I'm breaking all the rules right now, and I don't give a damn. Because I'm a father, I have a little girl. And what you did - bravo. The world is better without Darby and Ames. You're not going to see a tear shed from me, or anybody in my office. [pats him on the hand, and heads to his side of the desk] With that being said, I have a job to do.
[Clyde has just been granted bail]
Nick Rice (Jamie Foxx)
→ Your honour, I would caution you not to do that!
[Clyde laughs and claps]
Clyde Shelton (Gerard Butler)
→ Thank you!
Judge Burch (Annie Corley)
→ Excuse me?
→ No, I don't think I will excuse you. [to everyone] You see, this is what I'm talkin' about. You are about to let me go - are you kidding me? This is why we're here in the first place. [everyone looks at him in surprise] You think I don't remember who you are, lady?
→ I would tread carefully, Mr. Shelton.
→ Well how carefully should I tread!? Because apparently, I just killed two people! And you are about to let me walk right out that door! How misguided are you!? I feed you a couple of bullshit legal precedents, and there you go - you jump on it like a bitch in heat! [The judge indignantly bangs her gavel repeatedly] Folks, you all hang out in the same little club!
→ I'm warning you! Mr. Shelton! You will be held in contempt of this court!
→ [continuing] And every day you let madmen and murderers back on the street! You're too busy treating the law like it's a fucking assembly line!
→ One more time! One more time!
→ Do you have any idea what justice is!? Whatever happened to right and wrong!?
→ You are now in contempt of court! Remove this man from my court.
→ Christ! Whatever happened to right and wrong!? Whatever happened to the people!? Whatever happened to justice!?
→ Bail denied! Bail denied.
→ [being led away] And I bet you take it up the fuckin' ass! Bitch! See you later, Nick.
