He's a very exceptional...


And damaged young man.


Smart, bright.

He has a chance,

a future if we keep the police

and the press out of it.

He thinks you can help him.

Well, you know that's not gonna happen.

And you can't tell anyone

about this, not even your wife.

Have your drink, Tom.

You earned it.

That water was deep.

I gotta get back to court

and least look like I'm working.

Think about it.

So you're back Thursday, then?

No, no. I told you I'm filling in

for Bob this weekend.

You've been cutting down

on your hours, so...

- Yeah, I know. Sorry.

- ...we could use the cash.

You should come down.

- This weekend?

- Yeah.

Is there an opening or something?

No. No, it's just...

Because I just gotta

finish this chapter on parental abuse,

and I haven't listened

to the tapes yet, so...

No, it's just it's a good time.

I got it.

I hate talking about it this way.

- No, I get it.

- Really, I'm sick of it,

the calendars, the thermometers.

Hey, listen.

No, I... I want that.

I do. I want it.

Whatever it takes.

As many times as it takes.

- Okay.

- I'm your man.

I'm gonna try and finish up

here in the next few days

and get down there, okay?

You know what?

I'm gonna drive you down.

We'll stop at a B&B and

get right down to it.

Stop. It's fine.

Just finish whatever it is

you need to finish,

but try to come down, okay?

You're beautiful.

You know that?

It's too easy to assume

that Nicole simply lacks conscience.

Many children are obsessed with

issues of loyalty and betrayal,

but hers is a...

Primitive and exacting.

So the question then becomes

how to distinguish

between access to a personality disorder

and relatively healthy...

Danny. What are you...

What are you doing here?
