"Gentlemen, the deed in question, is evidently null, sullied by fraud and without a trace of legal basis … (the presiding judge interrupting counselor Macaire) But you are making a mistake, you are pleading against your own party…. (Robert, aside) By devil! By devil! It’s true, I have sunk myself … (Aloud) This is what you will undoubtedly say …But this deed is certainly steadfast, legal and perfectly valid, etc. etc. etc. (he pleads for five hours without interruption and loses his case)"
