    • Danny: Your Honor, when I was a poor boy in Toledo, Ohio--a poor boy playing in the streets in tattered rags, the son of poor, but honest immigrant parents, I learned many things. The most important of these is that an American is guaranteed, by the Constiution, the right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. I bent over backwards to try to help these people by offering to move from the big house to the little house back to the big house (clarifies for the judge) The guest house, Your Honor. (continues testimony) What was my reward for my humanitarian effort? Insults! (points to Fred) Insults from this man. Name-calling. To wit: banana nose. And not only that, but a demand by this man to pay twice the rent he has been paying. I ask, Your Honor, is this life? Is this liberty? Is this happiness?! (dramatically raises arms) Is this America?! I rest my case.
