'You're crazy.

You're such an idiot.'

'You said

you was gonna leave Elija.'

Ha! Fool!

'You said

you was comin' with me!'

'You're such an idiot.

You're such a fool.'

'I give you money.'

'You could never give me

enough money.'

'I give you more money

than Elija gives you!'

If you don't stop, I'm gonna tell Elija

that baby isn't his.

And he'll kick you out in the street.

- And if you do, I'll kill you.

- You wouldn't do anything.

You ain't gonna tell nothin'!

You ain't gonna tell nothin'!

Betty Jo! Oh, God!




Ready. Hup 1, hup 2!

Come on, come on!

All right!

- Oh, yay!

- Not bad. Not bad.

Hey, come on! Now, break!

Cut it out, man! Cut it out!

I'll kick your ass, Alex!

You used your knees on me, man!

- Yeah, cos you elbowed me, man!

- You crazy! I didn't do nothin'!

Come on,

ain't nobody out here gettin' paid!

Y'all cuttin' in on my weekend time!

Come on. Cool it, man.

I know you ain't gettin' paid, man,

cos if you is, I want my $5.

Come on, man.

Come on.

Huddle up!

You guys kick off!

You looked pretty good

out there, baby.

Yeah, I took it easy on them.

Listen, baby, I'm late for work.

These guys here

will take me home, right?

- Sure.

- All right.

- Hey, good game, man.

- Yeah!

And y'all be careful

drivin' my baby home, now.


All right, OK. Now, erm...

Let's go over this part one more time

to make sure you got it, OK?

- Yeah, OK.

- OK, good.

What is the next step after a case

is argued before a Court of Appeals?

It's reviewed by a board then sent on

to the next highest court in the district...

- Ike. Ike.

- What's wrong?

Honey, you wear these things

night and day without socks and they stink.

Baby, those are $30 superstar shoes.

That may be so,

but would you mind putting them outside?

If I put 'em outside,

somebody might steal 'em.

Ha-ha! They won't be able

to get close enough.

Oh, that's cold, Christella.

If somebody makes off

with my track shoes, it's on you, hear?

I will take all the responsibility.

You heard that, shoes.

It's on her.

Honey, er...

Hey, let's knock it off for tonight, baby.

Yeah, I've had enough law.

I have a very good idea.

I think a night out on the town

will do you a whole lot of good.

No, I can't do it, baby.

We did promise Phyllis and Tony

we'd celebrate their first anniversary.

Yeah, yeah, but...

Now, listen, it's just one night.

It's been ages

since we've been anywhere.

It'll throw me off, baby.

Come on, Ike, how often

do you celebrate a first anniversary?


Why do I let you get me

into stuff like this, huh?

Oh, I guess it's, er...

cos you love me.



- What's the matter with you, Tony?

- I'm fine, man, I'm fine.

You better close your mouth, kid!

God, I could never do anything like that.

Could you, Christella?

At least not in front of an audience.

No, man. I got it. I got it.

I got it, I got it, I got it.

Besides, you ain't drinking

nothing but beer.

Man, when are you gonna learn

it's medically proven

that good gin cleanses your soul out?

Listen, man, ain't nothing wrong

with my soul.

Oh, ain't nothing wrong with his soul.
