(MAN QUIETLY RECITES THE LORD'S PRAYER)
I know where thou dwelleth,
where the Seat of Satan is,
and thou holdest fast my name
and has not denied my faith,
even in those days when Antipas
was my faithful witness,
where Satan dwelleth.
I don't want to go back there.
Nobody wants to go back there,
but you've got to.
Shoot, I've got a whole damn
list of things I don't want to do.
Hey, you know that old saying?
Something about crime and time
and all that sh*t.
Did you know we use enough embalming fluid
in this country yearly
to, um, fill 12 Olympic size swimming pools?
Yeah, I think I've heard that one before.
Um, what about my lawyer?
He's supposed to be coming today.
Michael! What if...
We have to go back.
Prosecution wants a break.
Odds are with the client.
If you win this, they're gonna
make you partner.
I'll win this.
Sh*t. Hang on.
Hey. Hi, baby.
Yeah, we're just taking a bit of a recess.
Actually, I'm right in the middle of
something. Can I call you back?
Yeah. You too, baby. Okay. Okay. Thanks.
- What are you doing?
- (SHE LAUGHS)
Everything is going to be fine, Mr. Charnin.
What the f*** is happening over there?
Well, it appears the prosecution
is having a bit of a meltdown.
You think this is funny, Michael?
If the next witness testifies to half
of what Mr. Charnin thinks he will,
our case is f***ed.
Relax. I'm not worried about the witness.
Oh, we're prepared? F*** you.
If we lose this case, I promise you,
This is a bullet you will not dodge.
Your honor, permission to approach.
I think this is good for us, sir.
Take a deep breath.
Mr Gray, care to join us?
- Yes, your honor.
He knows what he's doing.
- He's in town...
- What's going on, Henry?
It seems the prosecution
is missing a witness.
Your honor, if you could just grant us
a brief continuance,
I can assure you that we can find out
what's happened to this gentleman
- and then move forward with this.
- Mr Gray, thoughts?
To be honest, your honor, the prosecution
has had ample time to present the case.
Now, I think it's only fair to my client,
the patient jurors and to all of us here
that if the prosecution
has no other available witnesses,
we should move to summation
and present to the jury.
Your honor, we have been
trying to contact this witness all day.
I spoke with him personally last night.
He will be here,
it's just a question of time.
Your honor, please.
I don't know what the f*** you did
in there. I don't want to know.
Maybe the gods are just
continuing to smile down on you,
but if this guy doesn't show up tomorrow,
the judge will throw the whole case out.
Let's just hope he doesn't show then.
Mr. Charnin, you're in good hands.
This way, sir.
Have a nice day.
- You're gonna win this, Michael.
So, are you going back to the office now?
No, I... I've got to go to prison.
(CAR ALARM BEEPS)
I thought we weren't...
weren't supposed to...
He didn't testify today.
Yeah, I know.
You scared him?
Yeah. I scared him.
You want details?
No. No, I don't.
