I pledge allegiance to the flag

of the United States ofAmerica.

And to the republic,

for which it stands.

One nation under God,

indivisible, with liberty -

and justice forall.

Take your wig off.

Take your wig off.

Turn and face the wall.

Turn and face the wall.

Face the wall.

All right, that's it.

- Are you a natural blonde?

- Chicken Delight! He delivers!

Don't put that in here.

She ain't my type.

That's my wife you're talking about.

She's here for our conjugal visit.

Come, let daddy show you

what he's got in his pants for you.

She's got the same thing under her skirt

that you've got in your pants.

Come on, you guys,

we've got a lady here.

Have you got any concealed weapons

they didn't find up front?

- You've got something concealed...

- But it ain't no weapon.

Let's see you strip

just to make sure.

A star is born!

Kirkland, watch your hands.

Come on, Kirkland. Let's go.

Can you make a phone call for me?

Where the hell is he?

What do you mean, he's in jail?

My lawyer's in jail?

Contempt of court?

He's too goddamn emotional.

Get him. I've had a car accident.

I haven't left the scene

of the accident, I'm in it!

Can't you hear the confusion?

Do you hear this noise?

They're trying to get me out ofthe car.

I'm trapped because some prick...

Could you move back,

so we can get you out?

Can't you see I'm on the phone?

Keep it down!

I'm trying... Goddammit!

Tell Arthur to get over here.

I'm on Eager Street. Where are we?

Eager Street... Just tell him to

get over here. You can't miss it.

I understand you took a swing

at Judge Fleming. Is that true?

Kiley, why not do something about

that kid? Put him someplace else.

They're just having some fun

with him, that's all.

- Fun?

- Sometimes the boys get bored.

For you,

it's still new and exciting.

Sign here.

Why don't you ease up on the judge?

He's your kind of guy, huh?

Yeah, Fleming's a tough man.

Hates scum almost as much as we do.

Good morning, Mr Kirkland.

Carl!

Come on. Here. Are you all right?

Sue the son of a bitch who did this

for every cent he's got. Every nickel.

- Carl, are you all right?

- Disappear.

- Miss, why don't you...

- She's not hurt. Nothing to report.

- Wait in the car.

- There's no need for the wife to know.

After all I was your first client,

Arthur. You broke cherry on me.

Not the time to go down memory lane.

Let's just get you to the hospital.

You're the best, Arthur.

Get every nickel and put him away.

- I'll see he gets the death penalty.

- Death is okay too.

- You stink. Did somebody piss on you?

- Get him out of here.

Let nobody use my car phone. I'm in

the hospital and some jerk calls Rome.

You son of a bitch! You lunatic!

Carl, you're gonna have a stroke.

You'll have to deal with my lawyer.

- You'll die for this! He's the best!

- It's not even my car.

Be calm, Carl. Be calm.

- I have a terrible headache.

- You'll be all right. I'll call you.

- What about this guy here?

- He says he's all right.

It's a friend's car.

I just borrowed it for the night.

- How am I gonna tell him?

- You should go to the hospital.

- I'm okay, but the car...

- Let me take you to the hospital.

My horoscope said it would be a great

day and look what happened. Shit!

It's not going to

be that way this time.

We should request a postponement.

That would put us into January.

Look at me when I'm talking to you!

- The DA is willing to go two years.

- That's a lot of f*cking time, man.

- I ain't kissing nobody's ass.

- I'm not asking you to.

Just give it a little pat.

Arthur. Arthur.

Excuse me. Hold it, Wenke.
