Let me show you how

to construct the map S,

which is the fun

of the lemma anyhow.


So you assume you have

an element

in the kernel of gamma.

That is, an element in C such

that gamma takes you

to zero in C prime.

You pull back to B

by the map G,

which is surject--

Hold it, hold it, hold it.

That's-- That's not unique.

Yes, it is unique,

Mr. Cooperman.

Up to an element

in the image of F. All right?

So we pulled it back

to a fixed B here,

then you take beta of B,

which takes you

to zero in C prime

by the commutivity

of the diagram.

It's therefore in the kernel

of the map G prime,

hence is in the image

of the map F prime,

by the exactness

of the lower sequence.


So we can pull it back


to an element in A prime.

It's not well-defined.

Which it turns out

is a well-defined module

of the image of alpha.

And thus defines an element

in the co-kernel of alpha.

And that's the snake.

And on Monday

we'll address ourselves

to the co-homology

of groups

and Mr. Cooperman's

next objections.

This-- This stuff

is just garbage.

It's another diagram chase.

When are we going to move on

to something interesting?

Like your new group?

Any progress

with the two fusion?

Nope. Still stuck.

Maybe you've gone as far

as you can with it, Dr. G.

That's possible.

I've started looking

at it with a whole new angle.


And if it works,

I'll be famous.


That would be terrific.

I can relax.

I'll be famous

for having taught you.

F*** face.







Schneider, don't tell me

in all of Chicago

you can't get that wood.

Look, screw Consolidated!


Screw Consolidated.

Screw me.

I'm-- I'm actually talking

on the phone.

I'm sorry.

Look, we've gotta get

the lumber by the 13th

or we can't start.

If you can't get the birch,

get the maple,

if you can't get the maple,

then go with

the goddamn $8 oak.


Formica looks great.

Yeah, yeah.

But, you know, get something.

I don't care where you go

to get it, but get--

One thing I'm not gonna do.

I'm not gonna sit on my butt,

take Consolidated's word,

and wait till

the market bumps to 10.

We gotta

make a deal by noon.

Okay, Schneider?

I don't wanna yell at you,

but you know what I'm saying?

Okay, Schneider.

God, you're cute

when you're mad.

Do they wonder

what you're like at home?

What am I like at home?

You're like

one perfect a**hole at home.

Perfect, huh?


You know--

These pillows.

I don't know, they're so big.

Nobody's gonna

be able to sit here.

I would've helped you

if you waited for me.

Don't try to get

on my good side.

I didn't know you

had a good side.


I didn't know you

had a good side. Heh.

Oh, God. I don't know

what I'm gonna do

about this interview

in New York this weekend.

Oh, thank you.

You peeled the onions.

This is great.

Thank you.


there's this dumb wedding.

Should I go or not?


I don't think so.

Don't go.

Why not?

Look, your father's

getting married.

Go to your father's wedding.

Go to your father's wedding.

I am staying

in this dumb hotel

so my father won't even know

that I'm in town.

I told you that.

I'm gonna be the spinster

at this wedding.

You're a spinster,

don't feel bad.

I'm not.

Come here, come here.

Look at me. Look at me.

Come with me to the wedding.

Ha-ha, I'm just kidding.

The reason I don't wanna go

to this wedding

is I can't stand the woman

that my father is marrying.

I mean, why does he have

to marry someone his own age?

You know, he could have married
