7 more: When first my old, old love I knew — All hail, great Judge • When I, good friends, was called to the Bar — Swear thou the Jury • Where is the Plaintiff? — Oh, never, never, never • May it please you, my Lud — That she is reeling is plain to see • Oh, gentlemen, listen, I pray — That seems a reasonable proposition • A nice dilemma we have here • I love him — Oh, joy unbounded
