Closing Arguments - Forbidden Fruits (16) -
He's not here to get rich.
He's not asking that you award him a lot of money.
He's asking that you recognize the sanctity of a marriage, his marriage.
We're always quick to blame the cheating partner.
But what about the person who
knowingly walks into a marital relationship and breaks it down?
Is he or she without responsibility?
There has to be a difference between romantically pursuing somebody
who's single and somebody who's married, doesn't there?
If not, how can we really say the institution has any sanctity?
What he did was wrong.
Strange that Mr Bepp would come to court for such a verdict.
Sad that, in these times, he'd have to.
Richard: You better have more than a smile.
I agree with everything she said.
Sad that this issue would have to be addressed in a court room.
More sad that people really don't respect marriage anymore.
He was wrong.
Lots of people commit adultery.
No, it shouldn't happen.
But it's also wrong to think that a law or
a jury is gonna make a difference here.
If two people love each other so powerfully,
they're gonna end up together. Stick laws between them.
Stick a court, a judge, an old girlfriends.
They will still find a way to end up together.
Now I'm sure that he still loves her.
And she probably still loves him,
but these two, they're the ones who are meant to be.
If you wanna be angry,
because the one you love loves somebody else a little more,
I understand that more than you know.
But anybody, anybody who has ever been truly, truly in love knows
that my client didn't have a choice.
Yes, marriage is and should be a sanctity.
And the one over there, it is.
Judge: Madam foreperson, has the jury reached a verdict?
Jury: We have, Your Honor.
Judge: What say you?
In the matter of Bepp versus Foote
intentional interference with marital relations,
we find in favor of the defendant.
Ladies and gentlemen of the jury,
thank you for your service. Court is adjured.
