Calumny And Lies

Comic Transcript

PLAINTIFF: This is ludicrous, Your Honor. The Defendant is speaking nonsense in order to confuse the court.

VIKTOR SCHRECK: I am simply speaking the truth, Your Honor, which the Plaintiff finds inconvenient.

PLAINTIFF: You are wearing a facade of truth, but beneath that thin veneer is a wellspring of calumny and lies!

VIKTOR SCHRECK: Since “calumny” is a false and malicious statement designed to injure the reputation of someone, or some thing, and since I am the defendant in this case, and since I am relying on facts in my defense rather than innuendo, whose reputation am I injuring?

PLAINTIFF: Your own?

VIKTOR SCHRECK: Well there is that.
