Alexander Hamilton: Gentlemen of the jury, I'm curious, bear with me. Are you aware that we're making hist'ry? This is the first murder trial of our brand-new nation. The liberty behind deliberation— I intend to prove beyond a shadow of a doubt with my assistant counsel—
Aaron Burr: Co-counsel. Hamilton, sit down. (Hamilton sits down) Our client Levi Weeks is innocent. Call your first witness. That's all you had to say!
Alexander Hamilton: Okay! (Hamilton jumps up again) One more thing—
Aaron Burr: Can we agree that duels are dumb and immature?
Alexander Hamilton: Sure. But your man has to answer for his words, Burr.
Aaron Burr: With his life? We both know that's absurd, sir.
Alexander Hamilton: Hang on, how many men died because Lee was inexperienced and ruinous?
Aaron Burr: Okay, so we're doin' this.
Alexander Hamilton: It's alright, Burr. I wish you'd brought this girl with you tonight, Burr.
Aaron Burr: You're very kind, but I'm afraid it's unlawful, sir.
Alexander Hamilton: What do you mean?
Aaron Burr: She's married.
Alexander Hamilton: I see.
Aaron Burr: She's married to a British officer.
Alexander Hamilton: Oh shit...
Aaron Burr: While we're talking, let me offer you some free advice. Talk less.
Alexander Hamilton: What?
Aaron Burr: Smile more.
Alexander Hamilton: Ha.
Aaron Burr: Don't let them know what you're against or what you're for.
Alexander Hamilton: You can't be serious.
Aaron Burr: You wanna get ahead?
Alexander Hamilton: Yes.
Aaron Burr: Fools who run their mouths off wind up dead.
