In this courtroom scene, a boy dressed as a lawyer argues the superiority of Dr. Péterson's toothpaste and tooth powder, and points out the products' low cost. Boxes of each sit on a table in front of him along with a folder of papers; a large bottle of Dr. Péterson's mouthwash rests on another folder on a table nearby.
