The scene opens with Nick Morelli parking his car hastily, and runs to the courtroom. He is defending a client who has been charged with stealing items from a departmental store. As he examines his witness laboriously, Judge Hunter gets irritated and mocks Morelli with a snore. When Morelli demands respect, Judge Hunter points out that respect has to be earned in his court. Not before long, as both lawyers approach the desk, Morelli gets sarcastic and is telling Hunter how he should behave, and accuses him of hurrying the trial so that he does not miss his golf session. He is charged with contempt. Another sarcastic statement bills his fine to $250. But he’s got only 230, and the prosecution can’t lend him the extra 20 bucks because cards is all he is carrying...
