John Milton: Lawyers are the devil's ministry.

Kevin Lomax: Walter, as your lawyer I'm advising you to stay the fuck away from me.

John Milton: Overrated. Biochemically no different than eating large quantities of chocolate.

Kevin Lomax: "Better to reign in Hell than serve in Heaven", is that it?
John Milton: Why not? I'm here on the ground with my nose in it since the whole thing began. I've nurtured every sensation man's been inspired to have.

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Al Pacino and Keanu Reeves are on top of the office building, they walk to the right edge of the roof. When the camera changes from overview to close-up, they only need one or two steps to the edge, but they make at least six steps. (00:25:40)

Question: During jury selection, Kevin decides to have one of the jury dismissed, I believe, because of the shoes the jury member wore. What exactly do the guy's shoes have to do with anything?

Answer: The shoes showed him this man polishes them every day, also his clothes are custom made. That all means the look he has of a black thug is deceiving, instead he's a cautious, proud person they can't use in the jury. Just to add, Kevin knows all this because the devil (his father, spoiler alert) is giving him the talent to do it, not a logical explanation can be given why he dismisses these people.
