February 2014: A defendant, clearly in the wrong after not paying a babysitter for services rendered, is making so many bad excuses that he's contradicted his own testimony several times.
Judy: Hey, are you playing with me, or what? Making you appear to be foolish is my specialty. If you're gonna double-talk me, it'd be my pleasure. Hone my skills for next year. If you, however, wanna say, "You know what? We stiffed her, and I got fired [from my job], and then there was no reason to have her anymore," then I'd say to you, "You know what?" (Judy shrugs as though to say, "Hey, at least that's honest.") And then you leave here, at least with your dignity intact. Do we understand each other?
Defendant: Very well.
Judy: Great. How much do you owe her?
