Deaf Judge: I graduated at the top of my class at Harvard Law. I was the youngest circuit judge in the history of New York State. Are you telling me that I can’t be a judge anymore, just because I lost my hearing?
Doctor: [ solemnly ] I’m afraid so.
Deaf Judge: What?
Doctor: [ louder ] I’m afraid so!
Deaf Judge: Yeah, I can’t hear you![ freeze-frame with title ]
Announcer: “Deaf Judge.” Just because he’s deaf, doesn’t mean he’s not listening.[ dissolve to courtroom scene, Prosecution and Defense standing before the Judge’s bench ]

Deaf Judge: What?
Deaf Judge: Hey! I’m deaf. I can’t hear you.
