Maslenjak v. United States

Chief Justice Roberts
Some time ago, outside the statute of limitations, I drove 60 miles an hour in a 55-mile-an-hour zone. I was not arrested. Now, you say that if I answer that question no, 20 years after I was naturalized as a citizen, you can knock on my door and say, guess what, you’re not an American citizen after all.

...

CHIEF JUSTICE ROBERTS
So you really are looking for the listing of every time somebody drove over the speed limit.

Murr v. Wisconsin

JUSTICE BREYER
Is this right? Just say yes or no, and if it’s wrong, I’ll figure it out later. . . .
MR. LAZARUS
Mr. Chief Justice, may I answer the question?
CHIEF JUSTICE ROBERTS
He wanted one word.
MR. LAZARUS
Yes.

Water Splash, Inc. v. Menon

JUSTICE KAGAN
Do you think it’s a problem for your position that no other court in the world has construed the treaty this way?
MR. HOOTMAN
That’s clearly a problem. That’s why I focused so hard on text.
CHIEF JUSTICE ROBERTS
Someone’s got to be first, right?

Packingham v. North Carolina

Justice Kagan
So you mean that there’s a constitutional right to use Snapchat, but not to use Twitter?

Lynch v. Dimaya

JUSTICE BREYER
I was quoting Cordoza. I’m happy to be confused with him.

Endrew F. v. Douglas Co. Sch. Dist. Re-1

CHIEF JUSTICE ROBERTS
It says “some benefit,” but you’re -- you’re reading it as saying “some benefit,” and the other side is reading it as saying “some benefit,” and you know that -- And it makes a difference.

. . . .

JUSTICE KAGAN
Do you favor a standard with bite?
MR. KATYAL
It does have some bite. It does. We’re not trying to --
JUSTICE KAGAN
Would that be “some bite” or “some bite”?

Expressions Hair Design v. Schneiderman

JUSTICE ALITO
I mean, suppose some kids have a lemonade stand or they’re washing cars and they say a glass of lemonade, $1 and then somebody comes up to them and says I’d like to buy that with a credit card. It might happen today. I have -- I have never seen anybody younger than me buy anything with cash. But that would be a violation if they put the $1 there on the assumption that everybody is going to pay cash for their lemonade. These are tech savvy kids so they can -- could process a credit card purchase if they wanted to?
MR. WU
The statue has no exemption for kids selling lemonade.

Expressions Hair Design v. Schneiderman

CHIEF JUSTICE ROBERTS
Hold on -- now, hold on. You’re saying that the -- the American people are too dumb to understand that if you say $10 plus a 20-cent surcharge, they can’t figure out that that’s $10.20.
MR. FEIGIN
And the second reason, Your Honor, I think addresses that concern directly.

JUSTICE BREYER
Then what’s the problem with saying -- you -- you don’t -- you’re too young to know what the OPA was.
MR. GUPTA
I think -- I think so, Justice Breyer.
JUSTICE BREYER
It’s called the Office of Price Administration. Ken Galbraith ran it for a while. And they would -- what they would do, he said is they’d go around and they’d smell what the right price was.

Nelson v. Colorado

JUSTICE BREYER
Right. So what happens then? I mean, you -- I grant you have a tough side of this argument. It doesn’t seem very fair.
