I see them!


Charlie, 213!

- You're a devil! Devil!

Okay, pass on through. Okay, you go ahead.


Thank you.


Slide it on through, please.

Step on through.


- Step right there, please.

- Excuse me?

Briefcase on the floor, please.

Arms out to the side.

- Oh, this is ridiculous.

- Little further up, please.

Thank you.

So, tell me,

how many rapists and murderers do you

think you've set free over the years?

Really? Do we have a problem?

Yes, we have a problem.

I'll take it from here, Ray.

Why don't you make a quick round,

clock out early

and have dinner with the missus.

Thank you, sir.

- Superintendent Joseph Sands.

- Michael Gray.

We know who you are.

I came down here to greet you personally.

We don't get the big stars out here much.

Well, I'm not a big star, sir.

I'm just very good at what I do.


I like to think I am, too.

Sometimes, I think of this

as our own little world.

I grew up with a couple of the old-timers

here myself.

Your client, Charlie Johnston,

I've known him since he was just a boy.

He used to light small animals on fire.

Just for kicks.

- Stepping.


You know getting him out of here is not

gonna make the world a better place.

Any shrink worth his grain will tell you

that people like Charlie are better

served behind these walls.

With all due respect, it's not my job

to determine his worthiness.

It's my job to do my job.

You know, there's a path

we all take, Michael,

that leads us to who and where we are.

Just do me a favor.

On your way back to your big law office in

the city, stop by Rose Jennings' house.

Yeah, the little girl he raped and murdered.

Tell her mother your little theory

about your duty to your job.
