Is that what it is?

What do you call someone

addicted to attorneys?


At least he's a divorce lawyer,

not a criminal.

- Lawyer, that is.

- Don't start.

That he was your

divorce lawyer is shitty,

don't you think, Leeanne?

Why are you here?

You wanna go through with this?


what time for the kids?

30. It's always 9:30,

why don't we make it 9:30?

All right, do me a favour

and be on time, Rick.

Carl? Er...

Can I get another drink?

- Jack, straight up?

- What am I gonna do?

- That jerk.

- JD, please.

Oh, boy. How she

picked him, I do not know.

I try so hard, I really do.

- I know, just...

- Every time l...

Remember the carrot here...

F*ck the carrot,

I have to put up with this crap.

- Lose it with him now and...

- I know...

Lose it now,

it'll cost you later.

He just pisses me off.

I understand that.

Let's forget about it.

- Where's the car?

- Down here.

One step, two steps...

- What colour is it?

- It's green.

Do you know what a fabulously

attractive woman you are?

Why don't we leave here

and go have some dinner?

That's the booze, Rick.

It makes you itch, remember?

Well, we can scratch.

You know better.

If you don't, I do.

It's what you pay me for.

Good judgement.

Well, I got the kids tomorrow,

but I'll call in, so...

One nightcap.

Something medicinal.

I'll fix you one, but I've got

an hour or two to catch up.

Hey, goddamit! That's my car!

Jesus... Shit!

Somethin' wrong?

Son of a bitch just

stole my fucking car!

What, just now?

Yeah, just now. Didn't you see?

Well, maybe

we should call the police.

Why? So they can make out

some goddamn report?

Tell me to call my insurance

company, which I don't have,

because I can't afford, and they

won't do a darn thing anyway.

No, thanks. I been
