Morriss: Why do we have eminent domain?

KMO: To take shit.

CSB: Isn’t it sad though, that the flower shop is all that his dead wife left him? It’s all he has in memory of her.

Morriss: Oh, it’s sad. It’s very sad. But no. If we reward sadness, all we get is more sadness.

Morriss: You have to take Professional Responsibility because it’s what the bar thinks will make you a good lawyer. But all you need to know is don’t steal money from your client, which I hope is not something we need to teach you.

Morriss: Nuisance is annoying because there are so few laws around it; it’s fact-specific…. Or maybe you think this whole class has been annoying.

Morriss: Flies on your property are a nuisance because I’m not coming onto your property, trespassorily. Maybe if I trained the flies to fly over to your property.

Morriss: It’s better to be a government than a bank. It’s better to be a bank than an individual. Well, maybe not today.

Grosso: My granma was a registered Republican because her husband was. She never changed her ticket even after he died. Every time she went to vote, she would write in, “Jesse Jackson”.

CSB: What are your criteria?

Leach: You mean grading criteria?

CSB: Yes.

Leach: I haven’t decided yet.

CSB: Oh, Jesus.

CSB: When do you use “Your Honor”? Do you use it at the beginning of each sentence?

Leach: You use it at like you would conversationally.

CSB: I see. Ok. But I don’t use “Your Honor” conversationally?

CMR: I don’t like it.

Morriss: Why not?

CMR: I don’t like that there’s no answer.

Moriss: Actually, there’s an answer. The problem is that there’s too many answers.

Morriss: So, you are all going to write the will correctly. Or you could go to a crappy law school and get sued for malpractice. See, when you read the Bar Association’s journal — like, say, the Texas Law Journal — you can flip to the back to read about disciplinary hearings. Me, I look for my old classmates.

Morriss: That’s one of the positives about being a young lawyer. My time is relatively cheap. And I can use it to make your life hell.

Morriss: Lawyers always want to tell people to do nothing. If you don’t do anything, you won’t get sued. If you stand REALLY STILL in one place, maybe you won’t harm anyone.

KO: Wait, go back to the previous slide.

Morriss: I’m going to post the powerpoint. This afternoon. I promise.

KO: But it’s more fun to write it down.

Morriss: … You need to get better hobbies.

CSB: I thought we didn’t need to know about treasure trove.

Morriss: You dont, except if there’s a problem involving Romans, the correct answer is “Treasure trove.”

Morriss: You don’t need to worry about the Rule Against Perpetuities. You can pass the exam. You can pass the bar. You can practice law. You can get sued for malpractice.

MN: Your hair smelled so good, I snuck up behind you and stole a smell.

JU: You know, in 31 states, that’s illegal.

JL: And that’s why I’m in this study group.
