Hey. I was just in the neighborhood,

and, uh, you left your letter,

uh, at the hospital the other day.

It has your address on it.

You didn't hear the doorbell?

- Mm-mmm.

- Anyway, it looked important,

like a bill or something.

Oh. Well, thank you.

You look a bit better.

How you feeling?

Well, I got out of the hospital,

and I slept like the dead.

Okay. Well, uh, thanks for this,

and, uh, I gotta get back to work, so...


You're the only person

I can talk to about what happened.

Can I come in?

- Uh, sure.

- Yeah, thank you.

Yeah, of course.

I just...

They convicted me for a crime

that I didn't commit, and you...

You basically sentenced me, so...

Can you at least help me

get my life back on track?

I rendered an opinion.

That's all.

You know that I'm innocent.

You gotta know that, right?

I actually don't know that,

and I need to ask you

to leave my house right now.

Do you understand me?


What the f***?

What the hell?

Hey, Louis.

- Whah!

- Whoa.



Good jab.

See you, Louis.

Hey, Mom.

I'm in here.

Louis tried to talk to you out there?

Ah, you could say that, yeah.

He keeps coming in here on his breaks,
