At the end of the episode, he stabs one of the inmates and shows he's more than capable of taking care of himself in an unnerving scene.

** It happens again in a later episode where an arson and death is blamed on the defendant who's family was not liked in the town and in everyone else's eyes he's already guilty, even though he had never done anything to anyone but is automatically accused whenever anything goes wrong in the town.

* CrimeOfSelfDefense: Kara Clayton in "School for Scandal" is brought to trial for shooting her husband when he nearly stabbed her to death. Only the audience knows that her stab wounds were really [[WoundedGazelleGambit self-inflicted]]; in-story it at first appears to be justified self-defense.

Added DiffLines:

** Inverted in "School for Scandal", where the public has already decided Kara Clayton killed her husband in self defense and therefore is ''not'' guilty of murder. (Even Bull thinks so until he speaks to her in person.) Bull stresses they will need a jury with "intellectual curiosity", people who will come to their own conclusions.


Added DiffLines:

** Discussed in "School for Scandal", when Bull finds out a juror is from the same town as the opposing lawyer and suspects she's a plant for this very purpose.

* OohMeAccentsSlipping: In-universe. A juror sounds like a New Yorker but when Bull overhears her on the phone with her mother, she is using her native Texan accent. This sends Bull into a panic since it invalidates her juror profile and he is angry that his team missed the fact that the juror is really from Texas.

** When Bull wants to give Chunk a raise, Marissa says they can't afford it. When Bull asks how that's possible, Marissa points out the massively expensive center they use and how much it costs to pay people for their mock juries and such, all of which adds up majorly. She adds that Bull living it up like he's fabulously rich doesn't help either so the firm is actually barely breaking even.

* FriendsRentControl: Played with. Bull's business earns a lot of money and he pays his employees well enough to cover the cost of living in New York City. However, his team works out of a sizeable office that includes a large mock courtroom which is very expensive in New York City. When Bull brings in a $250,000 retainer from a new client, he is told that it will barely cover all his outstanding bills. When Chunk decides to go to law school, he realizes that he cannot afford to do it in New York City since Bull does not pay him enough to pay for tuition and maintain his current living standard.
