Added DiffLines:

* {{Foil}}: Gene, one of Michael's brothers. The scene at his house says it all:
** He's a cop; Michael is a lawyer.
** He's a straight arrow; Michael is just shy of being a crook.
** He's a family man and caregiver; Michael is a divorced dad who sees his son on weekends, and takes care of his crooked clients instead of his family.
** He lives in a split-level in north Jersey; Michael haunts the bars and high-rises of Manhattan.
** Most importantly, Gene is grounded and content in his modest life, whereas Michael is beset with alienation, ennui, and frustrated ambition.

* JerkassHasAPoint: Marty, when Michael says he's tired of being a fixer and wants to return to litigation.
--> '''Michael:''' I was good at it!
--> '''Marty:''' So are a lot of people. At this, at what you do, you're ''great.'' For Chrissakes, Michael, you've got something everybody wants: you have a niche.
