you're drinking?

Let me answer that for you.

No, I did not.

I'm willing to pay $12,000.

Now that's a substantial bribe,


I want you to guarantee

straight A's.


then I guess when little Julie

flunks out

and she's selling her hot little body

for a hit of crystal meth,

I'll have to be the one to tell her

that her cheapskate dad

killed himself out of shame.

That's all I'm prepared to pay,

- nothing more.

- You can afford more.

- (over intercom) Yes, sir.

in the south wing.

That is called poison.

Due to budget cuts, PE clothes

till we find the finger.

That is all.

(sighs) What?
