After foiling a robbery, Goliath is unfairly accused of being one of the perpetrators and arrested. Though the rest of the Manhattan clan wish to break him out of jail, Goliath explains abiding by human laws will help make humans fear him less. Due to Goliath's nocturnal nature, the trial is held at night; Goliath points out several faults with the evidence that supposedly designates him as the guilty party. He later tricks the true culprit of the robbery into revealing his guilt, earning his pardon and showing humans that he is willing to abide by their laws and not resort to violence.
- Elisa mentions that Xanatos was going to hire a very good lawyer for Goliath, but Goliath decided to stick with the one appointed to him.

- Goliath reveals to the public some of the gargoyle beliefs and lifestyle; they have no interest in money or jewels, simply wishing for a home and food.
