One more question for you citing pros... do you have to cite every line??
Ex:

The plaintiff purchased a ring for the defendant. (cite?).  After they broke up the plaintiff requested the ring back. (cite?).

In my torts class last week someone was unprepared, instead of wasting the classes time he actually said, "im unprepared to argue this case" professor just went to the next person... i think they respect the fact you are honest with them instead of trying to bull your way through a question.  Everyone is different though.
