  • (Matt Damon) "In my first year of law school everybody loved everybody else, 'cause we were all studying the law, and the law was a noble thing.

I wanted to be a lawyer ever since I read about the Civil Rights lawyers in the 50s and 60s, and the amazing uses they found for the law. They did what a lot of people thought was the impossible. They gave lawyers a good name. And so I went to law school. And it did piss my father off; he was pissed off anyway."
