(regarding a traumatic event in Steven's life)
Judge Othniel: You were humiliated. That event turned you into ah, an obsessively fastidious, power hungry...
Mr. Smith: control freak. (Judge Othniel nods)
Steven: So what? I like my environment neat and tidy. There's nothing pathological about that.
Mr. Smith: I think you're terrified to lose control again. That way, no one can humiliate you or abandon you again. Ever.
