Too Hot

Judge.....Kenan Thompson
Prosecutor.....Cecily Strong
Defense Attorney.....Taran Killam
Jenaveve Lazarra.....John Goodman
Mr. Rosenfeld.....Beck Bennett

[ open on courtroom setting ]

Prosecutor: Ladies and gentlemen, this case is very simple: Did Mr. Rosenfeld unfairly fire my client based on her looks? The answer is Yes. And we will show that this is an open-and-shut case of sexism. My client's termination was unfair, unprovoked, and, in a problem that is becoming all too common, she was fired for being "too hot."

[ cut to the portly and manly Jenaveve Lazarra nodding with pouted lips ]

Judge: Defense? Your opening argument?

Defense Attorney: [ standing ] I mean... [ he points to Ms. Lazarra ]

Judge: Alright, Counselor, you have the floor.

Prosecutor: I call the Plaintiff -- Miss Jenaveve Lazarra.

[ Ms. Lazarra saunters up to the bench ]

Jenaveve Lazarra: Oo-oohhh! I get to sit by the judge-ah!

Judge: Oh, yes, you DO! [ he chuckles ]

Prosecutor: Miss Lazarra, why do you think Mr. Rosenfeld terminated you from his art gallery?

Jenaveve Lazarra: He found my appearance... too distracting. It was getting him all hot and bothered.

Defense Attorney: Objection! ABSURD speculation!

Judge: Well... I wouldn't say absurd!

Jenaveve Lazarra: Tee-hee-hee-hee!

Prosecutor: And what did Mr. Rosenthal say when you'd wear one of your sexy, stylish outfits at work?

Jenaveve Lazarra: His eyes would pop out of his head, his jaw would drop to the floor, and his tongue would roll out and he would go: A-oooooohh!!

Defense Attorney: Your Honor, objection! She's describing a CARTOON WOLF!

Prosecutor: In summary, Jenaveve: Because of your hot, sexy, gorgeous body --

Defense Attorney: Objection! Subjective!

Prosecutor: Because of your shapely body --

Defense Attorney: Objection!

Prosecutor: Because of your body --

Defense Attorney: ObJECTion!

Prosecutor: Because of your... stuff?

[ Defense Attorney thinks, then nods ]

Prosecutor: Because of your "stuff", you were objectified and demeaned, instead of being treated like the bright, 23-year old woman you are.

Defense Attorney: OBJECTION! [ a beat ] Say what?!

Prosecutor: No further questions.

Judge: Defense? Your lovely witness?

Jenaveve Lazarra: Tee-hee-hee-hee!!

Defense Attorney: Miss Lazarra... you like attention, don't you?

Jenaveve Lazarra: [ coyly ] Sometimessss...!

Defense Attorney: Miss Lazarra, do you... enjoy sex?

Jenaveve Lazarra: Oh, YEAHHHHHH!!!

Defense Attorney: And do you... you also happen to claim that you were a "model" employee?

Jenaveve Lazarra: Tee-hee-hee! I'm not a model model!

Judge: [ teasing ] Well, you could've fooled me!

Defense Attorney: But isn't it true you would take the drug Ecstasy -- at work -- and brag about it to co-workers?

Jenaveve Lazarra: [ pouty ] I plead the Fifth.

Defense Attorney: You can't selectively plead the Fifth.

Jenaveve Lazarra: Then, I plead... Naughty! Tee-hee-hee!

Defense Attorney: And isn't it true that over one third of the gallery's paintings had to be thrown away because you got CHOCOLATE on them?

Jenaveve Lazarra: That's incorrect! It was Nutella.

Judge: But you do like chocolate, don't you? [ he laughs suggestively ]

Defense Attorney: Your Honor, the Plaintiff's behavior was NOT appropriate in any context! She was fird because she was TOTALLY incompetent, not because she was [ makes quotes signs with his fingers ] "too hot"! No more questions.

Prosecutor: Miss Lazarra, is it true that Mr. Rosenfeld used to BEG you to dance for him, because he "needed it"?

Defense Attorney: Objection! My client is in NO WAY susceptible to Miss Lazarr's dancing!

Prosecutor: Alright, then. I submit Exhibit A: Miss Lazarra's dance moves.

[ suddenly, R. Kelly's "I'm A Flirt" begins to play, as Miss Lazarra rises to dance suggestively ]

[ in his seat, Mr. Rosenfeld begins to convulse uncomfortably and rise to his feet ]

Defense Attorney: Uh -- uh -- OBJECTION! YOUR HONOR! OBJECTION!

Judge: Uh-uh! OVERRULED! I like this!

[ the Judge does a double-take as he notices Mr. Rosenfeld dancing beside his bench ]

Prosecutor: Uh... Your Honor?

Judge: You know what? I rule for the Plaintiff! And I award her... one hour in my chamber! [ he bangs his gavel ]

[ fade ]
