ALICE: I don’t get it, Viktor — how do you manage to do this without going crazy?
VIKTOR SCHRECK: Manage to do what?
ALICE: Manage to be both plaintiff and defendant at the same time. Doesn’t it get confusing? Contradictory?
VIKTOR SCHRECK: Not at all. I’m a lawyer.
VIKTOR SCHRECK: Any lawyer worth his salt will have been taught to handle paradoxes by his second year in law school. It simply requires a willingness to compartmentalize until the contradiction is no longer relevant.
ALICE: So you deal with paradox by ignoring it the inherent contradictions until they go away?
VIKTOR SCHRECK: It is a fundamental concept of contract law.
