Are You Sick of the Same Old My Cousin Vinny References? Go Deeper!

It is common currency for lawyers of a certain age to reference various scenes from My Cousin Vinny, and with good reason, but sometimes it can get a little old.

(Lawyers of an older generation do the same thing with the Godfather trilogy.)

So next time you are stuck in an elevator at 73 West Flagler and you hear "I-dentical" or "it's called discovery" banter from lawyers coming out a hearing, impress them with something deeper -- mention Joe Pesci's second album, Vincent Laguardia Gambini Sings Just for You, and in particular the epic hit of 1998: Yo Cousin Vinny.

That should leave them speechless.


  1. Vinny Gambini: It is possible that the two yutes...
    Judge Chamberlain Haller: ...Ah, the two what? Uh... uh, what was that word?
    Vinny Gambini: Uh... what word?
    Judge Chamberlain Haller: Two what?
    Vinny Gambini: What?
    Judge Chamberlain Haller: Uh... did you say 'yutes'?
    Vinny Gambini: Yeah, two yutes.
    Judge Chamberlain Haller: What is a yute?
    Vinny Gambini: [beat] Oh, excuse me, your honor...
    Vinny Gambini: Two YOUTHS.

  2. You could go to IMDB and read the quotes from My Cousin Vinnie, OR you could just go watch a random court proceeding at the Coral Gables District Courthouse.
