NARRATOR: Jumpstar Prime...
MASSEY: Today began so beautifully...
I was doing the best work, the most important work any lawyer can aspire to!
I was trying cases in advance by crafting a constitution!
How do you balance restrictions against rights? How do you protect and serve without injury or infringement?
MASSEY: It is an ancient question, posed sharply against the beating heart of every civilization.
It has been answered countless times. Elegance, error, and epiphany shine brightly across the eons.
MASSEY: I could have lost myself in the galaxy's legal libraries for lifetimes uncovering the quintessential elements of legislative alchemy.
MURTAUGH: Then I interrupted your fun.
MASSEY: Not interrupted. Corrupted.
MASSEY: Your dilemma required a solution built upon the very excesses I sought to prevent.
You turned it into opposite day.
MURTAUGH: Relax, Massey. We're letting our police take care of some pirates. Legally, thanks to you.
MASSEY: Legal isn't always enough to let me sleep with a clean conscience.
MURTAUGH: Do what I do.
I lie in bed and tell myself happy stories about all the good things I'll do tomorrow.
MASSEY: What about the inevitable disappointment?
MURTAUGH: I have a fancy pillow filled with hand-polished beads made from the bones of my enemies.
