Elizabeth Canterbury: You need to put Ethan Foster on suicide watch.

Guard: Ma'am?

Elizabeth Canterbury: My client, Ethan Foster, needs to be under observation.
Guard: I don't have the authority to move him...
Elizabeth Canterbury: Listen to me very carefully. The chemical cocktail you have him on is making him worse. If he's not on suicide watch and he hurts himself, I will sue the state. I will sue the county. I'll sue you. So pick up the phone, and get the damn authority you need. Now!”
