This week's Alice in Wonderland quote is a conversation between Alice and King of Hearts.
Alice is called up as a witness in the trial where the judge - King of Hearts- is trying to find out who stole the Queen's tarts. But Alice is so very tall and big at this moment that she accidentally tips over the jury box with all the jurymen. This makes King of Hearts very annoyed and he decides to ask Alice to leave since she knows nothing about the stolen tarts anyway. But it doesn't go so well for King of Hearts:
King of Hearts: "Rule 42: All persons more than a mile high to leave the court."
Alice: "I am not a mile high. I shan't go at any rate. Besides, that's not a regular rule: you invented it just now."
King of Hearts: "It's the oldest rule in the book."
Alice: "Then it ought to be Number One!"
Alice wins this round and stays in court!
