Francis Hannah: Isn't it a fact, Mr. Gittes, that you're out on bail, having been arrested at the Green Parrot Bar & Grill?
Cotton Weinberger: Wait a minute. Your Honor, the witness has been charged, not convicted.
Judge Alexander K. Dettmer: What's the charge?
Francis Hannah: The charge?
Judge Alexander K. Dettmer: Yes. The charge.
Francis Hannah: Well, that, uh, Mr. Gittes was fondling... the private parts of a vice officer in the Men's Room of the Green Parrot Bar & Grill.
[gasps and laughter fill the court room]
Cotton Weinberger: Objection, Your Honor.
Judge Alexander K. Dettmer: I'm with you, Mr. Weinberger. I have no idea what you thought you could do with this kind of evidence, Mr. Hannah. It certainly has no place in my court room. Do yourself a favor. The next time, you be sure you've got a case. That's about it for this hearing.
