Closing Arguments - Story of Love (5) -
Feelings, we can't really control.
But behavior, we can and we should.
Is it understandable that Hannah Puck suffered hurt feelings?
Of course, it is.
Is it acceptable behavior for her to assault Laura Payne ...
to blow her into trash bin?
Of course, not.
And Ms.Puck, she took that stand defending her actions.
Basically saying, "Emotion just took her over."
Saying that Laura Payne was the wrongdoer.
But for what?
Fof letting her emotion take her over?
She fell in love.
She fell in love.
Is it unfortunate that the man was her best friend's boyfriend? Yes.
But love,True love,
It isn't something that just comes along like a train.
Where you can say, "Hey, I'll just catch the next one."
If everything we've been told about true love is, in fact, true ...
maybe it comes along once.
Does it make sense to exalt the protocol of friendship ...
over your one chance of ....... (チャンスは一度きりなのに...)
Now imagine, Two people being right for each other.
Knowing they are right for each other, and ...
letting if pass "because she dates my friend."
Any woman who does that ...
well, she sort of dumps herself in the trash bin, doesn't she?
Her BEST friend. Not A friend. Her BEST friend.
Leaving her in a big heap.
And then she sues ...
And then, because she knows she looks like a villain,
she goes out and hires a diminutive lawyer (it means Oren)...
for the sole purpose of making me the heavy.
(Oren starts crying)
Judge: Mr. Koolie! (it means Oren)
Oren: She hurt my feelings. (continues to cry.)
Judge: Mr. Foreman, has the jury reached its verdict?
Foreman: We have, Your Honor.
Judge: What say you?
In the matter of Payne versus Puck,
we find in favor of the plaintiff, Laura Payne.
And in order to defendant Hannah Puck to pay damages
in the amount of one dollar.
Oren: (starts crying.) One dollar!
Judge: Mr. Koolie!
Laura's attorney: Give it a rest, Oren.
(Oren stops crying immediately.)
Judge: Court dismissed.
