I am transcribing a video deposition out of Chicago. When the attorney asked the deponent, a soft-spoken gentleman, dressed appropriately as befits his profession as a CPA, if he'd talked to anyone about his deposition before sitting for it, the deponent said, "My husband." This made me very happy, and I had to pause the deposition to smile at him a little teary-eyed even though he couldn't see me. In replaying the video later, though, I would swear I saw him look slightly fearful as he gazed off to the side, and that made me a different kind of tearful.
