Burl: "We have placed censor boxes over the offending [!] areas, but on that day, your routine was sent out to eight million households. But you didn't care, did you?"
Dodd: "I care about women being informed about breast cancer. My mom died of breast cancer last year."
Burl: "We can't prosecute people for being disingenuous, or I would jump up there right now and put you over my knee, little girl. But then, too, you have a book coming out in two months."
Dodd: "Yeah. You don't grind, you don't shine. So?"
Burl: "You didn't care that you were using vulgar language in front of..."
Dodd: "Vulgar language? What word in particular?"
Burl: "I think you know, ma'am. It rhymes with bits?"
Dodd: "Oh, honey."
Burl: "So you enjoy using vulgar language to provoke."
Dodd: "Uh, yeah."
Alicia questions her -- once again proving that I don't understand how the law works at all, because why would she be back up there after Burl Preston? -- about whether or not she intended to go the full Monty, and Dodd lies about how she didn't.
Alicia: "Did you feel the show pushed you to do something outrageous?"
Dodd: "Uh, yeah. That's my bag."
Alicia: "And you were told you'd be delayed by football..."
Dodd: "Fuckin' antediluvian CBS, scheduling shit like anybody watches TV live..."
Alicia: "Tell me about it, sister. So you thought it was subject to safe harbor? That time between 10:00 and 6:00 when networks are technically allowed to show nudity and say tits?"
Nobody: Knows about that. She'll explain why; it's pretty gross.
Burl: "Okay, Christian Finnegan Live tapes in Chicago, yes, but it broadcasts on the West Coast at 8. So it doesn't matter."
Alicia: "That's not Therese's call, it's the network's. She had no way of knowing she wasn't in the safe harbor."
That's when they get you.
Alicia: "Ms. Dodd signed a contract with the network, not with the FCC..."
Dodd: "Wait, so the FCC even says I can strip down naked and talk dirty like a cable show, but the network says I can't? For real?"
Will: "Yeah, for real. That's why this whole suit is bullshit. Preston and CBS know they can't get $2M from my client, they're just suing to look good for their advertisers. Same reason network Standards & Practices are crazier than the FCC."
Judge: "Yeah. That's kind of bullshit. But it is also math. But that means the only question here is premeditation, right? Bring me proof -- like an earlier and identical stand-up routine -- or I'm prone to dismiss."
