You know, I have a very bad reputation.
Abby McDeere: What do you do?
Avery Tolar: I run around.
After visiting his brother, Ray, in prison, Mitch McDeere tells his wife that he had visited him. At that point in time, Mitch's residence was bugged, which would have meant that William Devasher would have known about Mitch's brother being in prison. Yet later, William Devasher learns about the fact from a prison guard.
In the scene when Mitch is at the Cayman Islands, and is talking to his new client Sonny Capps about tax representation, there is a line that had a strange overdubbing. Mitch's line "You'd feel like you were fucked with a dick big enough for an elephant to feel it" was re-shot for television. In the TV version, the line was replaced with "You'd feel like you had a prostate exam with a beach umbrella to feel it."
