Chesapeake Shores Season 5 Episode 3: "Are The Stars Out Tonight?" Quotes
I'm a huge patron of the under-ten-dollar arts.Mick
Judge Martinez: Well, Connor O'Brien, don't you agree that people of the male gender tend, on average, to have greater upper body strength than those of the female gender?
Connor: Well, yes.
Judge Martinez: And we're dealing specifically with, as I understand it, warehouse workers, lifting things. Am I correct?
Connor: Yes, your honor.
Judge Martinez: Alright then.
Judge Martinez: Mr. O'Brien, you better make a cogent argument or pack up and leave.
Connor: Uh, yes, your honor. I, I, I.
Judge Martinez: I'm waiting, Mr. O'Brien.
Connor: Yes, I, I have three sisters, your honor.
Judge Martinez: That's your argument? You have sisters?
Connor: Yes, sir. Three of them.
Judge Martinez: And...
Connor: And I find that women are capable of doing anything men can do.
Judge Martinez: That's a matter of opinion, Mr. O'Brien, and not a mitigating factor here.
Connor: Isn't it, though? Your honor, I'm talking about a deeper strength, one not represented by physical labor. I mean, when women are presented with a problem, they don't just solve that problem. They think three steps past it, and they get the job done.
Mick: He's stopping by.
Abby: Oh, joy.
This is what women are always told when they want equality, like in the Newsweek case, they were forced to assume a subsidiary role simply because of their sex. It's the same with McCloud Industries. I mean, yes, in general, men are stronger. Men can lift more than women. But at McCloud, most of the men use a forklift, and we have evidence that every female that applied for forklift training was not allowed to pursue it. And let's be honest, the forklift is the great equalizer here, is it not? So, this isn't just about equal pay for equal work. This is about the fact that females are denied the chance to become higher-paid forklift operators at McCloud. To quote the 1970 Newsweek case, "Simply because of their sex."Connor
