[Bellafae] This court is now in session, The Honourable Judge Haengemie presiding.
[Haengemie] <standard pre-trial court briefing>
[Gumdar] I went to get some cleaning supplies, because the rooms were getting a little stale...
[Gumdar] and I noticed several bottles of solvent missing from behind my counter.
[Gumdar] I looked all up & down and couldn't find them.
[Gumdar] Then I remembered when this so-called "knight" and his friends came into my place a week or so ago
[Gumdar] and his tramp girlfriend -- who I see is on the jury -- and a couple of other tarts...
[Haengemie] 10 seconds remaining, Please finish up, or say "done"...
[Gumdar] tried to distract me while he did something behind the counter.
[Haengemie] Thank you, Gumdar
[Haengemie] Sleipnir, you have 90 seconds to speak.
[Sleipnir] I scorn to tell a lie.
[Sleipnir] I did take the martini's.
[Sleipnir] I shall say no more.
[Sleipnir] done
[Haengemie] Thank you, Sleipnir
[Haengemie] Gumdar, you have 120 seconds to speak.
[Gumdar] Bah!
[Gumdar] Cleaning solvants, you took, and I need them back!
[Gumdar] well, at least you confess your evil deeds.
[Gumdar] Gumdar pets Hrock
[Gumdar] Gumdar pets Hrok
[Gumdar] Well, I hope you are ashamed, and they lock you up for a good long time, you ... you ...
[Gumdar] you *CAD!*
[Gumdar] and whatshername, too. Although I admit to enjoying the distraction.
[Gumdar] done
[Haengemie] Thank you, Gumdar
[Haengemie] Sleipnir, you have 120 seconds to speak.
[Sleipnir] Firstly, I took no cleaning solvents. I took some Martinis. I know this, as I tasted some.
[Sleipnir] Perhaps Gumdar has the wrong person?
[Sleipnir] Secondly, I confess to taking martinis.
[Sleipnir] But I do not admit this was an evil deed.
[Sleipnir] I was justified by reasons that I may not say now.
[Sleipnir] done
[Haengemie] Thank you, Sleipnir
