Cross Examiner?

At the Friars Club memorial tribute following Milton Berle's death, Dick Capri told Milton Berle's favorite story:

"Milton got instructions from a lawyer who told him, when he was in court, to say only three things as answers to any questions he was asked: 'Yes,' 'No,' or 'I don't remember.' So they get to court, and Milton is asked questions, and he says, 'I'm the greatest comedian in the world.'

"Outside, the lawyer is irate, and he says, 'Why did you say that?' And Milton says, 'I was under oath!'"
