HANK: Hey Hal, why is your chicken crossing the road?
HAL: Looks like it’s trying to get to the other side.

HANK: That’s great. You should be in Vegas. Why are you still on this porch?
HAL: Well, I’d like to see where my chicken is off to.

Your Honor, my profession is not on trial.
Your objection has been noted. Now please answer the question.
With all due respects, no questions on the bar exam were related to the mechanical sciences.
Whether the question is germane to your profession is not pertinent to the question at hand.
But the question has no bearing on this case. I request it be struck from the record.
I’m warning you counselor.
I mean no disrespect, your honor. But to ask how many in my profession it takes to replace a light bulb is to ask how many Swiss watchmakers it takes to milk a Belgian cow.
The members of the jury will disregard the last statement.
Why not just ask how many ducks it takes to assist a brain surgeon?
The court is confident it takes at least four quacks to assist a neurosurgeon. The question that remains is the one you persistently refuse to answer.
May I approach the bench?
Will it be with a light bulb?
Pardon the pun, your honor, but this is not a question to be taken lightly. Are we talking fluorescent, incandescent or halogen? Is it a simple bulb above a bathroom mirror or is it a suspended linear luminaire in a factory warehouse? Are the lawyers able to bill by the hour or is it by the light bulb? I would at the very least like to review Graham v Tesla before responding.
I see no reason why we cannot take an early lunch. Court will adjourn until 2pm. Counselor, I would like to see you in my chamber. I’d like your opinion on how many in your profession would it take to deliver lunch to the jurors.
