Dr. Sweets: “I see you bought Star Wars trading cards.”
Suspect Kathy Lyford: “Yeah, growing up me and my brother were all fans of the Force.”
Sweets: “I understand. I’m a Star Warrior myself. (In C-3PO’s voice) Don’t you call me a mindless philosopher you over-weight glob of grease.
Suspect: “Excuse me?”
Sweets: “C-3PO. I sounded just like him…from Star Wars. It’s like the most quoted line in the movie.”
Suspect: “Yeah. Of course.”
Sweets: “Can you explain to me why you spent $500 on a Jedi Knight trading card with a red border when it’s value is less than a dollar?”
Suspect: “I don’t know. I guess I made a mistake.”
Sweets: “What about The Clone Wars card you bought last month? Again you spent $500 but you could probably find it right now online for 50 cents.”
Suspect: “When I get stressed, I shop. You don’t have to make it into a big deal.”
Sweets: “I’m not making this into anything it’s not. I assure you.”
