If a character is attempting to appear profound, intelligent or worldly-wise and, in doing so, reveals him or herself to be laughably ignorant, we should take the incoherent and factually incorrect gibberish he or she pushes past his lips to be the Wisdom of the Gods.
which is balanced by the corollary
1. If someone who is not a Patterson offends a Patterson by saying something that most people would regard as both reasonable and sensible, that person is in the wrong.
2. If April is oppressing another Patterson by saying something reasonable and sensible that he or she doesn't feel like hearing, she can be considered a non-Patterson.
This is why April is an extra-selfish drama garbage troll princess person for making ill-informed and selfish drama queen noise about how Liz is big enough to get her own damned apartment and should also maybe feel guilty about rewarding a skeevy little thief.
