Synopsis: Charles is worn down by his home life where he and his wife struggle to cope with the demands of their daughter's illness and his job. When he meets Lucinda on the train to work in Chicago, there is an immediate spark between them. Soon they are doing lunch; dinner and drinks follow. This leads to an adulterous rendezvous in a hotel. However, no sooner have they torn each other's clothes off than their room is invaded by a thief who beats Charles and rapes Lucinda. Because of the illicit nature of their relationship, Charles agrees with Lucinda who is reluctant to go to the police and soon finds he is powerless to resist the demands of the thief.

- Nine dollars. I think Ill survive.

No, I gotta give it back.

I'd feel ethically impugned if I didn't.


Well, I wouldn't want you

to feel impugned.

So... if you take the same train

tomorrow, Ill pay you back.

It's a date.


- Hey.

- What up, Chaz?

Ooh, yo, I got a good one for you.

Seven players, 40-plus home runs,

with 11 letters in their last names.

- Yastrzemski.

- Yastrzemski.

- You got to spell that for me.

- Morning, Charles.


Barry, I need a cash check.

How much and what for?

for the Amerispend One shoot.

Don't forget to sign

the receipt this time.

- For you, Barry, Ill sign it in blood.

- Heard that.

OK, that's one. I need six more.


- Petrocelli.

- Petrocelli?

- Oh, Charles. Eliot's looking for you.

- P-E-T-R-O...

Oh, come on, yo.

That's only ten letters.

What else you got?

Come on, Chaz,

you got 'em all last week. I need this.

Oh, gee.

All right, Winston,

any of these guys National Leaguers?

I thought it was Major League or Minor

League. What's the National League?

- You don't follow baseball?

- No. Hockey's my game.

- More gore, less bore.

- Where'd you get the questions from?

This cop I know gives 'em to me.

Actually, he's like my uncle.

He's obsessed. Loves challenging me.

Said if I get it right, I get 100 bucks,

and you know I gots

to make that money.

Wait. You don't know the answers?

No. Duh.

That's why I come to you, Chaz.

Where you been? You're late.

- Come on.

- Sorry.

This is not a lady

who likes to wait, you know.


- Charles.

- Hi.

I guess you're here

to raise our commission, eh?

We have some issues.

We feel like no matter

how much we talk to you,

we just don't get heard by you people.

This last commercial

is a case in point.

We agreed on a strategy.
