-->'''Ms Olschner:''' Your honor, I wish to swat Mr. Buck in the head with his client's [deposition transcript].\\
'''Judge:''' You mean read it?\\
'''Ms Olschner:''' No, I wish to swat him in the head with it. The [Rules of Procedure] clearly state that a deposition may be used for "[[LoopHoleAbuse any purpose]]" in court, and this is the purpose for which I want to use it.\\
'''Judge:''' Well, it does say that. (Pause.)\\
'''Judge:''' There being no objection, you may proceed.\\
'''Ms Olschner:''' Thank you, your honor. (She swats Mr. Buck in the head with a copy of deposition.)\\
'''Mr. Buck:''' But Judge...\\
'''Judge:''' Next witness.\\
'''Mr. Buck:''' We object!\\
'''Judge:''' Sustained. Next witness.
** The best part of this story is the pause. It's clear the judge was giving Mr. Buck a chance to object, but apparently he just wasn't paying attention.

When a lawyer goes: ''Your Honor, I Object!'' or ''Objection, Your Honor!'', one would expect them to follow that up with an devastatingly accurate reason, which could either turn the tides of the court, or shut the otherside down, hard. But instead, it's followed by complete non-reasons like: "I object on the grounds that it sucks for me" or "I object for it being [[ShapedLikeItself objectionable]]!". Cue the reactions of everyone in court.

Deconstructed in the second season episode "Rendezvous", when incriminating evidence is presented and the defendant asks defense counsel to object.


Added DiffLines:

** Inverted for laughs in another episode, when Bud is so tired and overworked that he ends up nodding off in the middle of a case. Mack, who's the presiding judge, has to wake him up to ask him if he wants to object to something the prosecutor said.

** During the third case, as Wendy Oldbag [[MotorMouth rattles on about her life]], Edgeworth eventually cuts her off with "'''''Objection!''''' O-objection! I... object to the witness's talkativeness." [[SubvertedTrope The judge sustains]]. [[TruthInTelevision That is actually a valid objection]]: an attorney can object to a narrative response if it goes beyond what was asked[[note]]He also could have objected with "nothing pending", "irrelevant", and "non-responsive"; "non-responsive" in the context of a trial can mean that the witness gave an answer to a question that was not asked, which naturally extends to "will not shut up."[[/note]] As the player learns well in the next case, in fact, because the prosecutor for that one uses that kind of objection very heavily.
