Comic Transcript: 

ADALAI FOULE: There will be a short recess while the Judge examines the... erm... evidence brought before the court.


ADALAI FOULE: I'm sorry, I had to cal lit evidence. Apparently it's what you call it.

JUDGE: Mmph!

ADALAI FOULE: Yes, I can see how you might. I must say, you're taking this rather well. Your trials appear rather Sisyphean.

JUDGE: Mmph?

ADALAI FOULE: Sisyphus was punished by the Greek gods. Forced to roll a heavy rock up a hill, only to have it get away from him and roll to the bottom just before he reached the top.

ADALAI FOULE: Yes, for all eternity.

JUDGE: Mmph?

ADALAI FOULE: No, I believe the position is still filled.
