Plausible deniability.

- Congratulations, they'll never find it.

- That is the idea.

- Ah, the glamour of law!

- Justice by avalanche.

Maggie, you're just defending your client.

- What about the victims?

- They should have had a better lawyer.

- This entire box is from 1963.

- This is ajoke.

All of my labels are falling off.

Let's just keep digging.

Maybe we'll find what we're looking for.

Hey, what's going on?

We lose our lease?

No, this is a Father's Day gift,

courtesy of Quinn Califan and Lunt.

- What's so funny?

- Don't you get it?

We ask for one man's files.

She sends us a paper blizzard.

- She's hiding something.

- Yeah. Maybe.

- I ever tell you you're a terrific lawyer?

- Yes.

I lied.

Find this guy Pavel. You know,

the bunny man? I wanna talk to him.

The testing methodology was state of the art

at the time and that's what we went by.

OK, George.

We're through for the day.

You're still talking a little above the jury.

Not that that would be difficult.

Just keep it simple.

- I wish I'd never seen that damn report.

- Makes two of us.

- May I ask a question, please?

- Sure.

Why didn't you just

change the blinker circuit?

It's just a question.

I told Flannery about the problem

a month or so before he died.

- He called in his head bean counter.

- What's that?

- Risk management expert, right?

- Yeah.

Flannery shows him the data and asks him

how much it would cost to retrofit...

- You mean recall?

- Yeah, you got it.

To retrofit 175,000 units.

Multiply that times 300 bucks a car,

give or take.

You're looking at around $50 million.

So the risk guy,

he crunches the numbers some more.

He figures you'd have a fireball collision

about every 3,000 cars.

That's 158 explosions.

Which is almost as many

plaintiffs as there are.
