Here are some of the best bon mots from everyone's favorite acerbic attorney.
Diane Lockhart (Christine Baranski) tells it like it is—and nobody tells it better than Diane. Not only is Diane among the best lawyers in Chicago, she's also "smart, ambitious, principled and witty," say The Good Fight creators Robert and Michelle King. (The husband-and-wife team is also behind CBS' The Good Wife, Paramount+'s Evil, and CBS Studios' COVID-19 zombie satire, The Bite.) Read on for Diane's wittiest comebacks and most provocative (and evocative) quotes.
"The truth only takes you that far ..."
"And then you need lies."
"Everyone deserves a defense ..."
"Just not everyone deserves my defense."
"Life has a way of reminding you of who you are."
"It's always good to talk to a dinosaur ..."
"Reminds me how much things have changed."
"It's all right that the world is crazy ..."
"As long as I make my little corner of the world sane."
"Bad things happen to good people."
"People get desperate when they're lonely."
"Hope. When everything slips away, there is that."
"Eventually, everyone reveals themselves."
"People I thought with all my heart were guilty turned out to be innocent. And people I thought were saints, they weren't. That's why you don't go on instinct. You wait, you listen and watch. Eventually, everyone reveals themselves."
