Chairman, Ministers. Today I repeatedly heard how irrelevant my department has become. Why you we need 1._____________ for 00 section… is no rather acquainted. Well, I suppose I see a different world than you do. And the truth is that what I see frightens me. I'm frightened because our 2._____________ are not longer known to us. They do not exist on the map. They're no nations. They're 3._____________. But look around you, who do you fear? When you see a face, a uniform, a flag? No. Our world is not more transparent now. It's more opaque. It's in the shadows. That's where we must do back. So, before you declare this irrelevant, ask yourselves… how safe do you feel?

Dorsia on Friday night ? How'd he swing that ?

Is that a gram ? - New card.

Let's see Paul Allen's card.

Erin Brockovich - Negotiation


ED: Counselors.

SANCHEZ: 1.__________.

SANCHEZ:…Let’s be honest here. Twenty million dollars is more money than these people have ever dreamed of. 

ERIN: Oh, see, now that pisses me off. First of all — since the demur, we now have more than four hundred plaintiffs…and “let’s be 2.__________”, we all know there are more out there. Now, they may not be the most sophisticated people, but they do know how to divide, and twenty million dollars isn’t shit when you split it between them. 

ED: Erin

ERIN: And second of all — these people don’t dream about being 3.__________. They dream about being able to watch their kids swim in a pool without worrying they’ll have to have a hysterectomy at the age of 20, like Rosa Diaz — a client of ours — or have their spine deteriorate like Stan Bloom. 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’d expect someone to pay you for your uterus, Miss Sanchez — then you take out your calculator and multiply that number by a 4.__________. Anything less than that is a 5.__________ of our time. By the way, we had that water brought in special for you folks. Came from a well in Hinkley. 

SANCHEZ: I think this meeting is over. 

ED: Damn right it is.
