These are from a book called Disorder in the Court.
These are things people actually said in court, word * for

-----------------------------------------------------
Q: The youngest son, the twenty-year old, how old is he?

--------------------------------------------------------

Q: Can you describe the individual?
A: He was about medium height and had a beard.
Q: Was this a male, or a female?
---------------------------------------------------------- Q: Is your appearance here this morning pursuant to* a deposition notice which I sent to your attorney?
A: No, this is how I always dress when I go to work.
---------------------------------------------------------- Q: Doctor, how many autopsies have you performed on dead people?
A: All my autopsies are performed on dead people.
---------------------------------------------------------
Q: All your responses must be oral, OK?
What school* did you go to?
A: Oral.
---------------------------------------------------------- Q: Do you recall the time that you examined the body?
A: The autopsy started around 8:30 p.m.
Q: And Mr. Dennington was dead at the time?
A: No, he was sitting on the table wondering why I* was doing an autopsy on him.
---------------------------------------------------------
Q: Are you qualified to give a urine sample?
-------------------------------------------------------
Q: Doctor, before you performed the autopsy, did you* check for a pulse?
A: No.
Q: Did you check for blood pressure?
A: No.
Q: Did you check for breathing?
A: No.
Q: So, then it is possible that the patient was* alive when you began the autopsy?
A: No.
Q: How can you be so sure, Doctor?
A: Because his brain was sitting on my desk in a jar.
Q: But could the patient have still been alive, never the less?
A:* Not unless he was out practicing law somewhere.

Talking

LOL! I think that some lawyers have a script made up in their mind and they just blurt it out without even hearing the response or even themselves! Yeah, that doctor was terribly wrong for not realizing that people can live without brains! This kind of goes to show the lengths that prosecuters will go to get a conviction...sad....
