The facts are that she shows "ghosting" in her negative test for dexitetrasolone, and the particular markers in her sample are also the ones shown by the "Notorious Six," who are the other six people banned from Monday's trials. Also, the AADL lawyer, Mr. Plunkett, has an affidavit from a Chenise Jayes, another athlete, who claims to have seen Anna receive drugs at the Olympics. Will has to like formally request they get this chick there so he can question her, and the tribunal reluctantly allows it. But it's not like he's stalling, since Monday is going to be Monday either way, which means he needs help.
Will: "Diane, how's your French?"
Diane: "I am not talking to you about work. I am spending the weekend at the spa. Momma needs to be treated sweet. A wise reader pointed out this week that ever since the Trustee showed up, I've stopped wearing jewels and started wearing larger and larger chains. For this reason, go away."
Will: "Elsbeth Tascioni."
Diane: "Oh. I will be there in less than five seconds."
Alicia: "You are one of the most brilliant lawyers I have ever met..."
Elsbeth: "Aww, you're the best!"
Alicia: "...But that will not save you. Because you are also the craziest person on Earth, and this is a psych eval, not a good-lawyer eval."
Alicia: "They are going to you 120 questions, with long pauses between them. Know why?"
Elsbeth: "For truth!"
Alicia: "No. So you will feel like talking crazy."
Elsbeth: "So don't talk?"
Alicia: "Talk. Just... Not as much as usual."
Elsbeth: "Do I talk too much?"
Alicia: "It's a question of content. Be like me. Choose your words."
Q: "Do you resent being given advice?"
Elsbeth: "Like, what kind of advice?"
Alicia: "Be like me. Answer the question like I would."
Elsbeth: "I don't get it."
Alicia: "I know."
Q: "Do you like to stay active? And are you bored really easily?"
Elsbeth: "Yes. And then no. That's a compound question."
Elsbeth: "How can I then answer it? If it's anything then it's everything. Do I like to stay active? Yeah, I take my broom out for a fly if it's not too cold outside. Sometimes I transform into animals and run around. That's aerobic. But do I get bored really easily? No, because I am a lunatic. There is always something going on in here."
