We fight, we split...

she goes to you.

So it goes. Life is forever, right?

What do I care?

I passed my 20 yesterday.

Everybody says retire...


I feel kind of mortal

all of a sudden.

Know what I mean?

I say this guy's dead 48 hours.


Look at the lividity.

It's more like 36.

Smells like 48.

Smells like 36.

I was just trying to get

some attention.

You know?

I apologise.

It was just...

we're in the same squad...

six years.

We don't so much as

have a beer together.

How the hell

do you take my wife away?

I didn't take nobody nowhere.

You understand?

You didn't treat her right.

She walked.

I didn't treat her right?

She walked!

You want to kick somebody's ass

about it, you kick your own.


I'll check everybody out,

but truthfully...

it boils down to grabbing

the strange trim...

he got hooked up with.

This guy's

a swordsman extraordinaire.

Could be one of these ladies

gets pissed off...

because, you know, they're in bed...

he starts moaning "Mary"

instead of "Gladys."

"Hell hath no fury," and all that.

How do you know the trim is strange?

Maybe it's a steady.

Strange. You know how I know?

Records, 45s.

Nobody whips out their old 45s,

except on a first or second date...

when you're doing

"the wonder of me" thing.

Getting to know you.

So what do you do?

Take out old records, show the broad

you kept them all these years...

meaning you're a wonderful,

sentimental individual.

Who does that with

somebody they know already?

Once you know them,

who gives a shit?

How you doing, chief?

Working hard or hardly working?

Little of both. How you doing?


You think of anybody else yet?

The mailman maybe

came by in the afternoon.

I don't remember.

There was a cable TV repair guy

here, I think.

What's that, Cable Time? Cable Tone?
