- Freudian Slippery Slope: Light gets into one of these when trying to instruct Matsuda on how to properly seduce someone.Matsuda [wearing an ugly suit]: Hey, Light-kun.Light: What is it?Matsuda: Uhh, you're good with girls, right?Light: [thinking]: Hell yeah, I have! Well, I have had quite a few girlfriends over the years. So, I guess you could say that.Matsuda: Well, you see... I'm going on a date with someone in an hour, and, uh, I was sort of wondering if you could give me some advice...Light: [thinking]: Well, that explains the ugly suit. Oh, sure. Do you want to learn how to make her like you, or how to make her want to knock you over and fuck you into a mattress? Because I'm fairly good at both.The reality that he had quite possibly just said the most awkward thing in his life hit Light when the sound of chairs scraping against the floor reverberated all through the room as everyone in the task force turned to stare at him.
