Quotent Ethicals

by Armen

Tomorrow is the MPRE. Am I studying? You betcha. I am watching the episode of The Simpsons "Bart Gets Hit by a Car." The episode is a gold mine for any legal ethics professor who wants to draw up fact patterns. Here's a couple of my favorites.

Homer: "You sure have got some education Mr. Hutz."
Hutz: "Yes well Harvard, Yale, MIT, Oxford, the Sarbonnes, the LOUVRE."
*ambulance siren outside*
Hutz: "Oooooh uh oh well."


Hutz: "The bar association prevents me from promising you a big cash settlement, but between you and me, I promise you a big cash settlement. My fee is 50%"
Homer: "Fifty percent?"
Hutz: "You'll be getting more than just a lawyer Mr. Simpson, you'll also be getting this exquisite faux pearl necklace, $99 value, as our gift to you"

I believe he offers a "faux pearl necklace."

ANWLS, I may have misheard. I will go back and double check on the dvd. BTW, there was DEFINITELY one question on the MPRE that reminded me of Hutz when he says (and I'm paraphrasing here), "Well I have lots of hearsay and conjecture. Those are KINDS of evidence."
