Gabe has his own ambitions to became a professional barrister. Everyone keeps talking about how hard it is to find a job, and how difficult it is to be in the profession, with juniors being unable to find sufficient cases. But Gabe still persists in becoming a professional barrister, as he is confident, knows what he wants, and could not care less what others think.

Gabe is such a boss.

Boss Man. Boss is an acronym spelled backwards. Sorry Son Of a B*tch. In prison the inmates call the correctional officers Boss Man. This is in no way a sign of respect but of disresepect. They are calling them a Sorry Son Of a B*tch. This is exactly why Rick Ross calls himself the Boss. He was so used to inmates calling him this term he stuck with it long after his correctional officer days.
