Will Girardi : Tough going up against the self-defense claim. The giant was chasing Jack, right?
Joan : That's Jack's story. Everyone takes his word for it because the giant is this total mean, scary ogre, but Jack stole his golden goose.
Will Girardi : Well, the family was hungry. There are mitigating circumstances.
Joan : Jack's family is starving, so he trades their only cow in for five crummy beans? Give me a break.
Will Girardi : Stupidity is not a crime.
Joan : Maybe he's not stupid. Maybe he knows those beans will take him to the giant's castle.
Will Girardi : You're arguing it was premeditated.
Joan : If he was starving, why didn't he harvest the beans? I mean, why did he have to climb that stalk instead?
Will Girardi : Textbook breaking and entering.
Joan : Exactly. He takes what he wants, kills the giant, pleads self-defense. Sweet, young Jack is a stone-cold killer.
Will Girardi : Nice job, counselor.
Joan : Thank you. You know, you can't take anything at face value. There's always something else going on.
