6. I can't
The summons says I can only be excused "when it would cause extraordinary or compelling hardship".

I am an elementary school teacher and I have to report on Valentine's Day!! Somehow I doubt missing my class Valentine's party would be considered extraordinary or compelling hardship.

4. Remember if a mobster is trying to "tamper" you!

8. Do you subscribe to odd theories concerning causes of earthquakes?
If so, you should mention this to the people in court so they'll leave you alone
