You remember in Return of the Jedi, when Luke defeats the Rancor, smashing the gate down on him to kill him? Jabba is outraged at Luke, so the guards all rush in to get him. But one guard has eyes only for the Rancor. He pushes past Luke and the other guards, crying, desperate to get to his beloved beast.

In his review, Roger Ebert singled out that moment as one of his favorites. He wrote that everybody has somebody. Even the nasty, human-eating Rancor.

I know that most people see my clients as human Rancors. Maybe not-quite-human Rancors. Who deserve to be caged and for whom nobody should waste any tears.

But you and they should all know that my clients all have that one guard who will cry for them. Because Roger Ebert was right. Everybody really should have somebody.
