And yes, even baldness.

[Dave] We will, by the way,

subpoena that tape.

I'm sorry, that's all the time I have.

Thank you all very much.

Dave. Here's your messages.

And I am holding 4:00 open

for your kid thing.

OK, 4:
00 for the kid thing.

Unless you want me

to go for you. 'Cause I will.

No, thanks. Thanks.

Dave. Hey. Great opening.

You really won over that jury.

I learned everything from you, Ken.

- Dr. Kozak.

- Yes.

Glad to have ya. Sorry I couldn't

put you on the stand today.

All right. Apology accepted.

Ken tells me that when he steps down,

you're gonna be our next

district attorney.

- Well, that's my hope.

- Certainly.

Well, hopefully justice

will be served.

You'll have my support as well

as that of Grant & Strictland.

- Till tomorrow? OK.

- All right.

- Once again.

- We actually just shook hands.

Yes, we did.

Thank you.

Kozak. How did it go in court today?

Ah, Mr. Strictland. Uh... [stammers]

It went very, very, very well, sir.

Have you unlocked the dog's secret?

Let's talk in the elevator, OK?

I have something to show you

I think will be most pleasing.

Have you figured out

why the dog lives so long?

Well, I... I take it you're familiar

with the concept of dog years, sir?

- Don't like dogs.

- You don't like...

- I keep a squirrel.

- OK. A pet squirrel.

That's, uh, something.

Typically, dogs age seven years

for every human year.

But in the case of this one,

this one that we borrowed from Tibet,

a genetic mutation

reversed the equation.

What I'm saying is,

he lives seven years

for every human year.

Sir, this dog is over 300 years old.

[Strictland] Hmm.

The things you must have seen.

If we could transmit

that gene to humans,

we'd all live 700 years.

We've isolated

the gene fairly quickly.
