Trivia Edit

  • On the strange Machine it says 'Pouletmorph' - Poulet is French for Chicken.
  • Unlike most of the court cases, the plaintiff (Ernest) is listed vs. the defendant (Professor Oddenstein). Most of them are listed the other way around. Strangely, it is traditional in real court cases to list in the order this one does (Plaintiff vs. Defendant) making the majority of court cases in RuneScape listed backwards.
  • When defending and you call Ernest to the stand and ask him that he tells you about being a chicken, and he responds that he never actually remembers being a chicken, your character criticizes him and makes a reference to the quest Forgettable Tale....
  • While talking to Veronica about her marriage with Ernest, she tells the player that it was delayed due to Ernest getting himself into trouble. In one incident before being turned into a chicken, Ernest got trapped in a Daemonheim dungeon because he forgot he had the door key in his pocket. In reality, Ernest the Chicken was released about 9 years before Daemonheim.
  • No one makes mention of the player being involved in the events that changed Ernest back.
  • When the defence interviews Ava, she refers to Occam's razor in relation to the Pouletmorph machine. This is an logical argument made in philosophy and science that says if two theories can both explain something equally well, then the simpler of the two is preferred, as many more complex explanations for things could possibly exist. In this case, Ava seeing a stray chicken is a simpler explanation than Ernest being turned into one by the machine.
