"I Have Your Bonus Check...."



Erin Brockovich (Julia Roberts): "Oh, yay!"

Ed Masry, Esq. (Albert Finney): "I want you to be prepared. I felt that figure is not exactly what we discussed." 

Erin Brockovich (Julia Roberts): "Why not?"

Ed Masry, Esq. (Albert Finney): "Because, after careful consideration, I felt that figure was not appropriate. Although you may not agree, you have to trust my experience and judgement." 

Erin Brockovich (Julia Roberts): "Trust? You want me to trust you?  Don't use big words that you don't understand."

Ed Masry, Esq. (Albert Finney): "It's a complicated issue, Erin."

Erin Brockovich (Julia Roberts): "I did a job and you should reward me accordingly.  It's not complicated.  You know what?  That is the f*cking problem!  All you lawyers do is complicate situations that aren't complicated! Do you know why everyone thinks lawyers are back-stabbing, blood-sucking, scumbags?  Because they are. I can't believe you are doing this to me, now! When I'm up to my ass in Kettlemen plaintiffs, which looks by the way, to be double the amount of Hinkley.....I want you to know something, Ed. It is not about the number!  It's about the way my work is valued...."

Erin Brockovich (2000)  Directed by Steven Soderbergh
