Prosecution objects that said home owner went missing before being questioned by the state. Next, Slimy asks Keith whether his daughter has ever lied to him. Heh. Veronica inspects her shoes, because she's never told them a lie. Discretion being the better part of valor, Keith chooses to go the "teenage girls fib, sir" route rather than the "well, there was this time she helped her boyfriend abduct a baby and skip town" route. Slimy asks whether Keith expects he's been told the truth on the "big issues." Keith says he does, which: dumb. Because: chlamydia. Also: he's got to know by this point that Slimy's got something to back this up. Slimy brings up Veronica breaking into the Mannings' house and also how she turns up in Leo's disciplinary file for sneaking into the records room while he was on duty. I'd look for a hyperlink, but she did that in pretty much every episode in Season 1, right? Also, not to nitpick, but wouldn't Keith have known Leo's disciplinary file pretty well after investigating him for lifting the sex tapes? Yet Keith says he didn't know. And then Slimy brings up that very investigation! It's madness! The guest recapper shouldn't be able to spot a continuity error on this show, and certainly not one that blatant. Which makes me think I missed something, though it's all kind of right there in the open. Whatever. Anyway. Slimy suggests a scenario in which Veronica used her clap-ridden feminine wiles to seduce one "boyfriend" (Leo -- air quotes courtesy of Slimy, by the by) into giving the tapes to another "boyfriend" (Logan) so as to destroy them in the hopes exonerating yet another "boyfriend" (Duncan). That's too many air quotes and too few feet between himself and Keith on Slimy's part. Keith grabs Slimy by the tie and yanks his head halfway into the witness box: "Any more air quotes and I'll break those fingers off." The judge wants Keith escorted to a jail cell for contempt or whatever, but Slimy waives the bailiff off. He's already gotten the good guy to act crazed. Also, Madam Prosecutor, way to not object to Slimy's line of speculation that had no bearing on the witness whatsoever. I'm no law-talkin' guy, but you'd think the prosecution would have at least given that a shot. "Your honor! Speculation!" I'm sure I've heard that one on TV before.
