in one room.

All right?

Gets them all scared and crowing

about the shit that they did.

The cops write up a list

and bust us all.

I'm not saying shit.

This is not a setup

by the cops.

I had a friend

a couple years ago,

got in a barroom fight

with a guy.

Guy turns out to be a cop.

A couple hours later,

he's in room like this.

They threw him a hell

of a blanket party.

The guy never did

walk the same since.

It's not the cops.

How can you be so sure?

Because I'm

a fucking genius, okay?

Yeah, well,

anything is possible.

I had a customer

a couple of weeks ago

threaten to kill me

when I cut him off at the bar.

But then he drove his car

into a building.

Maybe this is all just

a mistake.

What, do you think he

kidnapped all of us by mistake?

Look, he's obviously crazy,

so that's something we can

use to our advantage.

Are we supposed to think

of a crime that's so horrible

that he would kill 9 people

as a result,

some horrible crime that we did?

I'm sorry, Father,

but the worst

thing one person

can do to another

is child molestation.


I never would do such a thing.

I have.

Was it, like, boys or girls?

Does it matter to you?

No, no.

Me neither.

You sick son of a bitch.

You put me in a room with you

and no windows and no doors,

and you're gonna wish

that you were never born.

Sweetie, we are in a room

with no windows or doors,

and the only thing you're gonna

do is try to survive,

just like me.

Maybe you deserve to die.

What I've done might have

gotten me here,

but you two

and all of you...

What have all of you done

to deserve

the death penalty?

My name is Eddie Vigoda.

Hi, Eddie.

Maybe that helps somebody.

No, Eddie.

No, it doesn't.

I'm Dean Jackson.

I'm Kelley Murphy.

I'm an assistant

district attorney
