Do what Mr. Knievel always did... (10.16)

Dake: You know Axelrod is guilty. Carry yourself with confidence in the courtroom, and DeGiulio will know it, too.

Bryan: Confidence? Not even Evel Knievel could jump the gap between what I know and what I can prove.

Dake: Then I suggest you do what Mr. Knievel always did. Rev her high. Pray for mercy. Try to put her down on the ramp. And hope you are one of the elect.

Robert Craig Knievel Jr. (October 17, 1938 – November 30, 2007), professionally known as Evel Knievel, was an American stunt performer and entertainer. Over the course of his career, he attempted more than 75 ramp-to-ramp motorcycle jumps; in 1974, he failed an attempted canyon jump across Snake River Canyon in the Skycycle X-2, a steam-powered rocket. Knievel was inducted into the Motorcycle Hall of Fame in 1999. He died of pulmonary disease in Clearwater, Florida, in 2007, aged 69.
