Franklin Nelson: Your client, Mister Lee, he made his first payment today.
Matt Murdock: That's great. You should be very happy.
Franklin: Yeah, it's fantastic. He paid in fluke. Fluke is a fish, Matt. Did you know that? Because I sure as hell didn't.
Matt: Mister Lee is a good man, and he-he doesn't have a lot of money, and he goes fishing on the weekends.
Franklin: Yeah, well, I go salsa dancing on the weekends, but I don't shake my ass to pay my phone bill, you know what I'm sayin'?
...
Franklin: We need some better clients. I'm tired of these pro bono cases.
Matt: What is your problem with our clients? We have good, honorable clients, decent people. What's your idea of better? Define "better". Huh? What would be a "better" client?
Franklin: "Better" means rich and guilty, okay? Remember how they taught us in law school how to create a moral vacuum, so you can represent people who aren't all necessarily innocent?
Matt: That was your best course, as I recall.
Franklin: Yeah, well, you don't have a moral vacuum, Matt. You're completely vacuumless.
