Black and White

Synopsis: Chris O'Brien, devoted Catholic and rookie cop with LAPD, is assigned to partner with the hard-edged, street-smart Nora Hugosian. A serial killer is loose, and all the victims are low-life guys whom Nora has dealt with. So, when the tire tracks of a police car are found at a murder scene, she's the prime suspect of internal affairs investigator Simon Hertzel. Chris and Nora start an affair, but meanwhile he has suspicions about her. Should he start his own investigation, which would be an act of betrayal, or trust her, as his partner and his lover? When a witness i.d.'s Nora's former partner, Michael Clemence, as the killer, Nora gives Mike an alibi, and things get complicated.

"Words from your lips

made her hips wanna roll

"It's the Rap Crusader on stage,

they call me James

"Playing games like Spades,

I'm on his cut like a Band-Aid

"Throw your hands in the air

from left to right

"Knock the mikes out real quick,

like a Tyson fight

"My raps are real,

bringing magic that should kill

"Feeling never squeal,

cause I'm hard like steel

"I grab a mike like this,

say a rhyme like that...."

Check it out.

Daddys little girl

Daddy's little girl

"Daddy.... Daddy's little girl.

"Are you Daddy's little girl?"


Any other needs, sir?

Let's see. Ladies, gentlemen,

John, would you like something?

I think we're fine, thank you.

Tell Cheryl that this is spectacular.

She's outdone herself.

-Just fabulous.

-Thank you.

All right, everybody.

Napkins, please, on the laps.

This is quail, and it tastes great.

You're gonna love it.

The grapes look like flowers.

Everything's perfect.

And a terrific sauce.

Slice little pieces off

and then dip it in the sauce.

Hi, Katie.

Well, well, well. What an honour.

Only a half hour late.

-May I ask where you've been, Charlie?

-Hi, Daddy. I've been at the liberry.

The "Iiberry"?

Is that any relation

to the institution known as a "Iibrary"?

Can't we have one dinner

where we don't argue?

I hope so. But I've told you.

If you must wear that ridiculous

gold tooth, do it outside, not in my house.

And take your jacket off, too.

What were you guys doing

before you decided... become rap artists

and cut your first album?

What that got to do

with what we talking about?

I came here as a businessman,

coming to do business with you...

...and your establishment

and you're giving me the rundown...

...on this sh*t like you're the police.

Isn't this place a recording studio?

It is a recording studio.

I'm trying my best to accommodate you.

I'm a kid coming up out of the street, man.

Trying to do my thing, trying to get on.

Make music, live a better life.

-Graduating this year?

-I sure am.

God willing.

With a little luck and a few bribes.

Dad, why you always

gotta say sh*t like that?

Why can't you just be normal?

-Why do you have to be such a nut?

-A nut? Excuse me?

You don't see me coming in here

and talking about your problems.

You know? Why do you always

gotta f*** with me?

Rich is the guy behind the Cream Team,

is that correct?

Rich is the mind behind Cream Team.

-And his name is Rich--

-Rich Bower, yeah.

The guy meeting us here is Rich Bower?

Tell me what you heard.

Just stories and gossip about some trouble

you guys might've been in.

That's in the past. This is the present.

What are we gonna do?

Actually, Cigar,

to be totally honest with you...

...l can't give you a firm answer now.

We're really jammed up.

-What's going on?

-You still negotiating, nigga?

-Thought we had a deal.

-This is the cat who owns the studio.

Arnie Tishman. Nice to meet you.

Feel free to look around.

By the way,

which library were you studying at?

-Surely you remember the name.

-I don't remember.

She was studying at a library an hour ago.

But ask her where and she can't remember.

What do you mean you can't take cash?

What's wrong?

-Money ain't green?

-Don't want cash?

-You don't like me?


Cash is king! What's wrong with you?

You sound like you're mad.

You're acting like you're on drugs.

Drugs are bugging you out.

-Who's your lawyer?

-What do lawyers got to do with it?

You're the police or something?

We just want some studio time.

What you talking about my lawyer?

You don't treat me

like you do everyone else.

Don't start with comparisons.

-Katie's so perfect.

-Katie's nine years old.

But you think she's so perfect.

And I'm just a disgusting leech...

...that you have.

With my friends, I don't feel that way.

I'm having a good day, hanging out

with my friends, going to the library...

...and you ruin it.

You have to cut your first album

somewhere else.

You'll use this studio in the future.

This is why people get hurt.

You make a person feel a certain way,

then you shut him down.

-Is that a threat?

-We don't make threats.

We said we'd be back. That's a promise.

There's a time and a place for this.

But I don't think that now is the right time.

Let's just all sit here,

enjoy this quail and have a meal together.


-Hey, Charlie.

-Hold on, Wren.

-You lighting up?

-I missed you after school.


I listened to Rae pour out

all her boyfriend problems.

That's good for Rae.

I'm glad she's doing that.

-Do you love me?

-Of course I love you.

You do? I love you, too.


-What up, girl?

What's up, Rich? What you doing?

-I'm gonna call you back, okay?

-Wait a second, Charlie.

-Shut up. I'll call you back.

-Who are you talking to--

-What's up? What you doing?

-Just chilling.

-Did you have fun today?

-What can I say?

-It was nice, right?

-It was all right.

-I would go for it again.


-Whenever you're ready.


Let me get up.

I'm gonna go down there

and see what's going on.

The motherfucking D.A.'s son.

What the f*** aspect they get from

having this motherf***er working for me?

I gotta talk to you about some sh*t

we ain't talked about yet.

That some major sh*t that's going down.

You gotta deal with it right away.

There's some disrespect going down

and you can't allow this to happen.

Just between you and me.
