NARRATOR: OFFENSE

VIKTOR SCHRECK: Our best hope of winning this case is to convince me to testify on my own behalf. it’s easy to make a defendant look guilty no matter what he says.

NARRATOR: DEFENSE

ADALAI FOULE: We absolutely have to keep you off the witness stand. Ubersoft will twist everything you say to make you look guilty.

VIKTOR SCHRECK: Agreed.

NARRATOR: OFFENSE

ALICE: But how? You’ve been practicing law for too long to think that testifying on your own behalf will actually help your case.

VIKTOR SCHRECK: True. We might have to smear my reputation before court begins. That will entice me to get on the stand in order to “set the record straight.”

NARRATOR: DEFENSE

ADALAI FOULE: They may try to draw you out on the stand by spreading lies and innuendo before the trial begins… to goad you into taking the stand to clear your reputation.

VIKTOR SCHRECK: It won’t work. Lies and innuendo will only enhance my reputation.

NARRATOR: OFFENSE

ALICE: But won’t lies and innuendo only enhance your reputation?

VIKTOR: That depends on the specifics of the lies and innuendo.

NARRATOR: DEFENSE

ADALAI FOULE: Ubersoft is claiming you love children and small dogs.

VIKTOR SCHRECK: Calumny and lies!
