I can't wait!

You're really in

a hurry, huh? OK...

Cleveland. It's the closest

I've got to Washington.

There's a woman about to

deliver there, Marlene Finch.

- Fine!

- Her husband's name is Roger, who's an Elk.

- He owns a dry-cl...

- I'll take it!

Oh, OK. She's going into labour!

You'd better hurry.

How will we recognise each other?

Don't worry. Go, go, go!

Whoa! Whoa! Wait a minute!

I forgot! Your shot!

You go to... You need... I...

Omar? What happened?

- He had to run.

- He had to run?

And? And what, Omar? And what?

A... a...

And you... forgot to give

him his inoculation?

He can't go through

life without that.

Sally, please...

What if he remembers?

This is a pretty situation!

So you just assumed that

nobody at Yale University

or Yale Law School had any interest

in checking out these six books

in the last three months?

No, I just...

You are going to make some lawyer!

You owe eighty-seven dollars

and twenty-five cents.

87.25. Can I put that

on a credit card?

This isn't a boutique.

Cash only, or we'll

hold up your grades.

I don't have enough cash.

I'm... I'm going home right now

and my ride's waiting for me.

Mrs Handy? The rare books room.

- The Shakespeare folios.

- Yes, Alex. What about them?

They're fooling with the folios.

- Fooling with the folios?

- And fiddling too.

- Go! Go to them!

- Yes. Thank you.

I'll take over here.

Oh dear Oh! Good heavens

God, is she always that awful?



I'm sorry.

I just didn't have enough cash, and

she wouldn't take a credit card.

And... I can't get my grades.

My ride's waiting...

What? What?

This is bad.

- How bad?

- It's worse than I thought.

- How worse?

- A lot.

According to this, these books

were never legally checked out.

Yeah, so?

So it means I can't
