I'm sure they don't put it on

with a paint sprayer.

For your information, a lot

of people think I'm very funny.

Go live with them.

Don't tempt me.

Who's the guy in the closet?

Excuse me?

You forget I'm a detective.

There's all this

steam in the shower.

Only your hair is dry.

So it must be somebody else.

A male.

The toilet seat's up.

Since he's not under the bed...

...I figure you must have

stuck him in the closet.

Who's in the closet?

Jesus Christ, nothing changes.

You're still a lunatic.

Will you tell me who?

Shall I open the closet?

I'll do it.

Then we'll both know you're psycho!

Is that what you want?

Thank you.

That door stays shut.

What I'm going to do... count to 3.

Then I'll put a bullet in that door.

You can stop me

by telling the truth.

Call your shrink and

tell him you're losing it.

The truth is a beautiful thing.

How dare you come

into this house and...

- Look, Joe...

- Keeping her warm for me?


Don't do nothing dumb.

How was she?

On your scale,

how was my wife?

It just happened.

Sure, I know.

It just happened.

It could happen to anybody.

An accident.

You tripped and accidentally

stuck your dick in my wife.

"I'm so sorry, Mrs. H.

I guess this just isn't my week. "

Put the gun down.

The gun.

You're right.

I think I am losing it.

Get out of here.

Head or gut, Mike?

Joe, how long we been friends?

Roughly till you started

banging my wife.

Head or gut?


Got that address for me?

The surveillance job.

You still want the job?

I guess you're right.

Throw a shot into her?

Get the f*** out of here.

Go sh*t in your own yard.


Over here.

Somebody wired the car.

Who the f*** did this?

Mr. Rogers.

How the hell should I know?

You told the cops?

I told them Mike came by
