|“||Your Honor, Jonathan Cumberland for the defense.||”|
The name, Jonathan Cumberland, comes from earlier in the episode when Rachel suggests everyone find their "Soap Opera" name by combining their middle name with the street they live on. Eric claims his soap opera name would then be Jonathan Cumberland, despite Jack Hunter pointing out that his middle name is actually Randall.
During the "court scene", despite Dean Bolander stating that it was "not a trial", and telling everyone to not make a big "courtroom drama" out of it, Eric walks in to the room to the theme of the TV show People's Court. It is revealed that the music is coming from a tape player he carries in his briefcase.
Jonathan Cumberland is not very effective in the courtroom. He claims that he wants to be partners with Mr. Feeny, though he states it will be "mostly Feeny" doing the defense. The only idea he offers in the end, is for Mr. Feeny to "play the love card" with the Dean if things don't look like they are going well.
