I'm ready to go downtown and

hire a Mexican or something.

Mom, what...

Where's my daughter-in-law?

She's in New York.

Oh, in the old days, it was the...

It was the men who went

on the business trips.

Mom, don't start with this.

Even if it's always

the women who do the work.

Whoa, whoa, whoa.

Wait a sec.

What did... what'd you do to your wrist?

I just... I slipped a-and fell.

Look, I'm really sorry

I can't stay for dinner,

but you sure I can't make you something?

Oh, for goodness sakes,

I can still take care of myself.

I know you... okay.

Thank you for getting my groceries.

I love you.

Okay. Okay, buddy.


My advice to you... a little

less thinking, a little more fucking.

I mean, look at me.

I got the four kids,

and let me tell you something.

That did not happen from thinking.

Mm. And three wives.

Defense rests.

What about you?

You're looking more distracted

and morose than usual.

What's that about?

You remember Danny Miller?

I just got a chill.

I ran into him.

He's out under another name.

And not a patient of yours, is he?


Well, good.

Then stop working on what you're

working on and write that.

You could sell that in a second.

There is nothing creepier

than the truth, right?


For God's sake, it was a joke.

Just don't talk to him

in any circumstances.

That was a long time ago.

Let that be a long time ago.

Yeah, he's implying it was

my testimony that convicted him.

Well, that's a little overstated,

don't you think?

I mean, come on.

I know he was no angel.

But still, it bothers me.

He was my last case

on that side of things.

When I think about it,

maybe we did go too fast.

Maybe we came at him a little too hard.

What... what are you talking about?

He didn't deny being there.
