* DeadpanSnarker: Fletcher, indeed. Audrey also has her moments; when Fletcher makes a joke about not provoking gang members, she quips that they'd never hurt him because "you're their lawyer", and when Fletcher thanks Audrey for paying his impound fee, saying she doesn't know how much it means to him, she drolly replies "I can; $1,654 and eleven cents."

* {{Double Standard Rape Female On Male}}: Fletcher was raped. Miranda knew that he wanted partner, as most lawyers do. She used her position to manipulate him into having sex with her, when he clearly was resisting. There was no indication of consent on Fletcher's behalf, and he went along with it because he really wanted the position. Had the genders been flipped, this would not be presented as comical.
** Also just minutes before, Samantha gives him a hug before leaving, whispers seductively in his ear, and grabs his ass. It clearly bothers him. [[spoiler:Later in court after they win, she pins Fletcher down and [[ForcefulKiss kisses the hell out of him]] for a few moments while he squirms under her grasp. Hes then seen wiping off his lips. Again played for laughs.]]

-->'''[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a61gEPoL6Do Greta:]]''' Mr. Reede, several years ago a friend of mine had a burglar on her roof - a burglar. He fell through the kitchen skylight, landed on a cutting board, on a butcher's knife, cutting his leg. The burglar sued my friend. He sued my friend and because of guys like you, ''he won.'' My friend had to pay the burglar $6,000. Is that justice?\\

** Remember, ''he can't lie''. He really ''doesn't'' understand why people would be angry at him for this kind of thing; it's his job, and the courts have found no problem with it before, so why does everyone hate him? Only when he sees an innocent man lose his children to an amoral bitch does he realize that he is using the letter of the law to subvert its spirit, and breaks down.
