In Life As We Know It, the Child Protection Service court granted Messer permission to parent Sophie.
Before Messer, Sophie and Holly are leaving the court Messer questions the judge like this:
That's it? You're not gonna ask us anything? How do you know we're not dealers or pimps?
This shows Messer has rude behaviour.
Then why did the Child Protection Service court still appoint Messer to parent Sophie even with this rude behavior?
