Punch, anyone?

This is a contract case, but the court is hiding detrimental reliance in there! You can't hide detrimental reliance! It's the turd in the punchbowl.
- Crazed Contracts Professor

You think or you know?

Prof: Student, do you want to brief this? You have a nice big smile on your face.
Student: I do? I think that's my default face.

Hairy Buffalo, anyone?

You can't mix causa and consideration! Apples and oranges make a nice fruit salad, but you can't mix psychedelic drugs and poison in your fruit salad! You can't handle causa! It's completely foreign to you!

3L guy: "Let me get this straight: you want to have his babies but you don't want to hook up with him?"
3L chick: "It's the kissing. I mean, EW!"
3L guy: "Maybe you want to rethink this one."

Things not to tell the clients

Sniffly 1L: I think I have a cold. My dog has a cold. Can humans get colds from dogs?
1L's friend: I'm sure you can. My dog had ringworm once, and then I had ringworm.

I can't wait until we get to the crimes involving bagels...

2L dude: Couldn’t it be that the extortion was retaliation for something else? He had done something, they forced the extortion on him... Italian people do stuff like that all the time.
