Foob and Order: The Final Verdict

To really understand why it is that Elly did all of the stupid things she did, I think that this failure of Elly to anticipate that Pervrett had had it explained to him that if he wanted to be taken seriously, he had to look presentable is rather indicative of the sort of mindset she had going in. She really didn't understand the process, she didn't understand that a courtroom is a public place, she didn't want to hire a lawyer because 'she wanted to talk for herself' and most of all, she didn't understand that people aren't going to help her out because she's a busy mother with no help and no time to herself.

This leads us to why she had to fight the ticket in the first place: she was too damned focused on the damage to the car and too intimidated by PC Plod (A British slang term describing a generic police constable) to describe what she saw to the constable on scene. Pervrett gave his statement (Honest, officer, I was just trying to make a right turn but the housewife in the sports car was halfway into the crosswalk) but all she did was mutter and stutter because policemen scare her because they can get her into trouble with her mama. The end result of all of this is that if people remember her at all, it's as a very silly and very lucky woman who made a mildly goofy spectacle of herself by thinking television was reality....or, as it turns out, the mouthpiece for a silly woman who thinks that a divorce proceeding in the bad old days of the seventies was how courts worked.
