TRACY: Why are you lecturing me? I don’t know what you’re referring to, but I do know that if certain older and wiser people hadn’t acted like such little babies and gotten all mushy, everything would be okay. And I think certain older persons like you and your “colleague” shouldn’t be leaching after their students, especially when some of them can’t even get their own wives pregnant.  And they certainly shouldn’t be running around making slanderous accusations. Especially when certain young, naive people’s mothers are para-legal secretaries at the city’s biggest law firm and have won many successful lawsuits. And if you want to keep questioning me like this, I won’t continue without my attorney present.
