  1. 1:12 Objection! Leading the witness! 1:17 Objection! Pulling Conclusion! 1:25 Objection! Leading the witness! 1:39 Objection! Leading the witness!
    That many objections in 27 seconds in enough to be removed, fined, and blacklisted.

  2. My brother always got shotgun for 5 years. Now my sister and I have to take turns. Then she always gets it for 3. Because screw me right?

  3. Why is matt in so many love triangles? It's like when they need a couple (or a weak person *SORRY MATT*) they immediately go:

    "Matt wanna not be single for a bit?"

    And boom! Love sketch!

  4. Studio c logic
    Matt and mallory are married.
    Scetch: lets have whitney and natilee the only other two girls have a crush on matt

  5. How I get front seat is that I fight with all my siblings until they are unconscious then I get shotgun

  6. Wait a moment article 32.B of shotgun laws stipulates that in the event of two equal claims to shotgun the designated driver have the veto right which can only be overturned by 32.D, the SO of the driver being BBF with one of the shotgun claimers.

  7. This sketch inspired an essay I wrote to get into the honors program at my university. I got in. Thanks, Studio C.

  8. For someone who at first had no idea what shot gun court was Whitney sure got the hold on what she was doing pretty quickly.

  9. What is more surprising…
    A. The fact that Stacey knew exactly at what time Matt had a dream or
    B. The fact that Matt was sleeping by 11:11😂😂😂

  10. With me and my brothers it goes something like one calls shotgun and then we all just race to the car and wrestle to get in the door first

  11. Wait ok so at first I thought by the way they were arguing, Matt and Whitney were siblings. But if they're in an awkward love triangle, whose dad is Jason? I'm so confused…

  12. My family has the universal override of the “dog shotgun” if you sit shotgun you need to hold the dog on your lap and stop her from jumping out of the window

  13. What if I’m driving
    Or I am the front seat
    Or I’m everyone’s parent
    Or it’s my birthday
    OR IM GOD
    OR I AM SANESS THE DESTROYER
