Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • If you call Evil Dave to the stand and ask him about every topic, the judge will rule him to be a liability to his case and order all his statements stricken from the record. This will render both his positive and negative responses neutral.
  • If you have an anti-dragon shield in your inventory or have it equipped, then you won't be able to talk to Oziach about Dave.
  • When presenting Evil Stew as evidence, the option "It's tasty, tasty, very very tasty" is a reference to a song used to advertise bran flakes in the 1990s.
  • It is assumed that you cannot receive this case until you have saved Evil Dave in the Recipe for Disaster quest.
  • When Oziach is called to the stand for questioning, he still has the "Trade" chat option when right clicked, although it is impossible to reach him to do so.
  • Previously, there was a glitch where if you completed Evil Dave's Big Day Out before doing this case, then it would be impossible to interview Doris as her dialogue will have changed to the post-quest dialogue. However, it was still possible to successfully complete the case without interviewing her. This has since been fixed.
    • However, interviewing "Evil Dave" (appearing in basement) and asking about court summon will result in him responding in behalf of Evil Dave, while asking about Evil Dave's Big Day Out will result in responding in behalf of Doris. This discrepancy also applies to "Doris" on the ground floor[UK]1st floor[US].
