- Hello and welcome to Food Court. Our litigants are preparing to enter the courtroom in the case of, Who Put Too Many Cookies in the Cookie Jar? These are the plaintiffs, Gary and Shannon Fortini. They allege that the defendant is refusing to fulfill a large, yet reasonable order of Girl Scout Cookies, for Shannon to sell. This is the defendant, Kathy Wilson. She claims that the plaintiff's order of Samoa cookies was unreasonably large. And it is unlikely that she would be able to sell them all before the end of the cookie season. So let's watch as our litigants go over the details of their dispute in Food Court. - Mr. Fortini, you are suing the defendant over her failure to fulfill a larger order of Samoa cookies? - Yes, your honor, my daughter, Shannon is suing Ms. Wilson, for refusing to fill an order of Girl Scout cookies, that my daughter, Shannon placed. She's been doing a great job out there with sales, and for some reason, Ms. Wilson is blackballing my daughter, Shannon. - Your honor, Mr. Fortini placed an order for 1,000 boxes of Samoa cookies. - I didn't. She did. Shannon, my daughter. - Okay, fine. Shannon placed an order for 1,000 boxes of Samoa cookies. Either way, we're not gonna give that many cookies to one Girl Scout. - I mean that is a rather larger order Mr. Fortini. - She's very tenacious, your honor. She could sell water to a fish. - I mean could you... Shannon could you do with less cookies? - No, no, it's 1,000 minimum, your honor. - This really doesn't make any sense to me, because generally speaking, Samoas don't sell as well as, say, Thin Mints. - Oh yeah. - Yeah they're just not as in demand 'cause they're gross. - 'Cause they're gross. - [Kathy] Yeah. - Absolutely. I mean Thin Mints are... - [Kathy] They're so good. - They're the truth. - All due respect, yeah, Thin Mints are great, we all love Thin Mints, her dog's name is Thin Mint. We love Thin Mints. But she would corner the market if she just sold Samoas. - And these are Shannon's ideas? Shannon, these are your ideas? - Yes. Yes, your honor, she's got a very strong business sense. She's got girls working for her all over Los Angeles. - Wait a minute, are you distributing cookies to other girls for them to sell? - Mr. Fortini answer the question. - She is, okay, man, she is. I'm not doing it, she is, okay? It's her, and her staff, okay, and it's okay because everyone is getting their cut. - Cut? Are you keeping the money from the sales of Girl Scout cook... Are you serious? - No, no, not really, okay. We're getting a... We're getting a little bit of money from it, okay. But we just... What's left is for her expenses. Gas, running around money, she... - Gas, what is she gassing up a moped? - Are you running a for profit business selling Girl Scout cookies? - Oh my god. - What? She's bringing in more money than you ever could. - Mr. Fortini... You've gotta be kidding me. You can't run a for-profit business selling a non-profit organization's products. - The profit that we make goes right into the company, okay? She's got a down payment on a brick and mortar store, look how awesome that is for her. - No that's ridiculous! - Mr. Fortini. A brick and mortar store? - Yeah. - Profit, the Girl Scouts of America are a non-profit organization. It's against the law to make money selling their stuff, it just is. I'm gonna have to tell you to cease and desist all sales of Girl Scout cookies, and to end the business, or businesses that you've started. - I haven't started a thing. - [Judge] Fine! - She's the boss, okay, she's... - Shannon... Shannon has to stop sales of Girl Scout cookies and running her businesses. - I don't... - Or I can just refer you to a criminal court, and then you can go to jail for fraud, how about that? - Honey, can... Looks like this is not going too well for your old dad. Is it okay if we just kind of end this? We can do something else, besides the cookies. - Sure. - Okay, then sure. We're gonna shut it down. She's gonna shut it down. She's gonna shut it down. - Alright that was really cute. Case closed. - Great. That was fun. - No that was bad for you. - Let's get out of here. - [Kate] Thank you, your honor, thank you. - Nice to meet you. - Congratulations on your victory. - Thank you very much. Oh these are for you. - Oh, why thank you. - And if you would like a cookie that's a little hotter than go ahead and give this number a call. - Oh who doesn't love a hot cookie? So how do you feel about that? - Well she feels bad. - Shut up, you were an embarrassment in there. Now we gotta torch the place for insurance money. Just get in the car. - Well that does it for this episode of Food Court, where it appears Mr. Fortini did it all for the cookie. The what? The cookie. The what? The cookie.
