From the Say What!?! blog — transcript from an actual deposition:
DEFENSE ATTORNEY: May it please the Court. Your Honor. This Mr. Fred Head is trying to make me look like a bad guy. But there’s two sides to every question, and every coin you’ve got has got a back and front to it … Now, what the lawyer said, what I’m telling you right now and what he told you right now, you don’t believe. You don’t have to believe. It’s lawyer’s talk, so to speak.
And every special issue is going to, that the Court submits to you, is going to be prefaced ordinarily by, “Do you find from a preponderance of the evidence.” The Court, I think, will give you a definition of a preponderance of the evidence. I think it’s called the greater weight of incredible testimony. Incredible evidence. Now, just that Mr. Head says it’s true doesn’t mean it is.
This represents the quality of my thinking skills right now. I’m fer rill.
