* StupidEvil: [[spoiler: Roulet choosing Haller was really just a sadistic ploy on his part, since had he chosen any other lawyer not only could he have been given as good or better representation, but no lawyer but Haller was likely to have even made the connection between the two crimes. Could also be a case of EvilCannotComprehendGood- Roulet may think that Haller will fight extra-hard for him with his career on the line, not realising that he'll just try extra-hard to find a way to screw Roulet over and make sure he is sent to jail. Ultimately Roulet seems simply to think that in choosing Haller he is being diabolically clever and showing that he, a rich kid with no career or real qualifications to speak of, is smarter than a lower-middle class professional lawyer, not to mention [[EvilGloating he probably just wanted someone to brag his crimes to safely.]]]]

''They then proceed to brutally show him exactly what the hell they think they're doing.'' It's very plain that if Haller had not been there to keep them on a leash, it would have been the morgue and ''not'' the hospital.
