I don't think there's a show on TV with more movie quoting. Usually it's pretty obvious
Louis: "A Lannister always pays his debts"
or called out by one of the characters
Mike: I'm just saying, if you're gonna quote a movie, quote a movie.
Harvey: I got one word wrong.
Mike: It changed the entire meaning of the quote.
Harvey: Not to me, it didn't. That's what I thought the quote was.Mike: Okay, fine. You want to be disrespectful to Martin Scorsese, you go right ahead.
Harvey: Martin Scorsese didn't even write the damn movie.
But this past episode slide one almost past me, and all I can think is that these writers are having fun:
Harvey: "This phrase 'I know what the procedure is'—I don't think it means what you think it means.
Mike: "Well, as inconceivable as it might seem to you, Harvey..."
How tidy was that? Those who know, know. On another show, I might have called it a coincidence, but not on one known for its movie reference parries.
I found a tumblr dedicated to its references, and forgot how much I'd liked this:
Sheila: [reading] "Sheila, as long as I've known you, I've had a… I've had a feeling of completeness. Romeo and Juliet. Antony and Cleopatra." You crossed out Jaime and Cersei Lannister.
Louis: I thought they were too controversial a couple.
Plus! Gina Torres verbally kicking ass every single episode. Not particularly large, absolutely in charge.
