No we have to speak legaleese.
Which part of that are e not allowed to say?

My favorite thing to do in court is directly quote the then suspect. Some attorneys freak the F out.

Officer, what made you believe my client was under the influence?

It's Deputy, and he told me, "I was drunk before I even got to the bar and I knew I shouldn't be driving. Can't you just let me walk home?" My further investigation verified this claim.
