self-defence, right? I saw him

on 60 Minutes

Right. Yeah. Big celebrity.

Even wrote a book.

Every time I see him, he gives me one.

Couldn't get through the damn thing.

- Well, great. I'll take Reese.

- No, I've already got that one started.

Take Cindy Liggett.

Look through her file.

- It's a death penalty case?

- Yep.

- Get your dick wet with Liggett.

- Okay.

Helen'll get you a desk and a Playboy

if you change your mind.

- Slow down, slow down.

- All right.

Are we there?

All right. Okay.

Well, what do you think?

It's not bad, huh?

Bedroom, bathroom,

office area up there...

and gourmet kitchen

and swimming pool.

Never know who you'll meet

down there.

- And I got you into the tennis club.

- What's this?

- Oh, you'll be needing that.

- I got a tux.

It's an Armani.

I thought the days of profligate

spending were over, John.

Oh, don't worry about it. You're in the

majors now, you gotta look the part.

Okay. Thanks.

Ah, don't look like somebody

slammed your nuts in the door.

- It's... It's gonna be good.

- I know.

- Wait and see.

- I know.

Listen, it doesn't mean

the party's over.

It's just a better class of guests.

Well, you know, her crimes, you don't

think of a woman committing

a crime like that.

I mean, I don't, anyway.

That... That brutal.

Most of the time a woman kills,

it's a crime of passion.

Usually her husband

or her boyfriend.

And last time she got a stay of execution

with about four days left.

- Well, when was that?

- About 18 months ago.

It's all a delaying game, really.

They come up with some new

constitutional theory...

and find a sympathetic judge to grant

a stay, then they start appealing

all over again.

Right, and they just

stretch it out indefinitely.

Well, no, not this time.

It looks like she's run out of arguments.
