Narrator: "Despite his years as the city's most popular lawman, Chief Judge Francisco is not given to self-delusion. Many in the Department consider him a joke, a cardboard Judge, a trained monkey performing tricks for public consumption. Indeed, he is well aware that only luck, a peculiar conjunction of circumstance, has propelled him into this office. But now that he is here — despite all expectations — he is determined to perform this, his greatest role, with style. Fairness, integrity, intolerance of injustice — those will be the hallmarks of his administration." 2000 AD prog 1657.

Chief Judge Dan Francisco (resigning): "Let's not kid ourselves. I have presided over the worst disaster in our history. I missed every opportunity to prevent it.

On any scale it is a record unworthy of this office. My decision is irrevocable." 2000 AD prog 1789.
