An Important Continuance

Plagiarized from Say What?!.

(The scene is a capitol post-conviction hearing)

Mr. Ferrar: Your Honor, can we discuss scheduling?

The Court: Yes, let’s do that.

Mr. Ferrar: I note that it’s approximately 20 till six. I have no objection to continuing it. Today is my wife’s birthday.

The Court: Did you get her a gift?

Mr. Ferrar: We did a little something yesterday, so I’m not going to —

The Court: You’re not answering the question. I don’t blame you. I wouldn’t go home either without a gift. How much time do you need to go get her something?
