Do you find me sadistic?

You know, I'll bet I could fry an egg

on your head right now.

If I wanted to.

You know, kiddo.

I'd like to believe

you're aware enough, even now,

to know that there's nothing sadistic

in my actions.

Well, maybe towards

those other jokers.

But not you.

No, kiddo.

At this moment, this is me

at my most masochistic.


It's your baby.


Sarah, I cannot believe

you are early.

What you gonna do now?

What you got?

I got your ass!

Remember that? Remember?


Come on, b*tch.

Come on.

Bring it on.

Mommy, I'm home.

Hey, baby.

How was school?

Mommy, what happened to you

and the TV room?

That good-for-nothing dog

of yours got his little ass

in the living room

and acted a damn fool.

- That's what happened, baby.

- Barney did this?

Baby, now,

you can't come in here.

There's broken glass everywhere,

and you could cut yourself.

This is an old friend of Mommy's

I ain't seen in a long time.

Hi, honey.


What's your name?

Her name is Nikki.


Such a pretty name

for such a pretty girl.

How old are you, Nikki?

Nikki... asked you

a question.

I'm 4.

You know,

I had a little girl once.

She'd be about 4 now.

Now, baby, me and Mommy's friend

got some grown-up talk

to talk about.

You go in your room.

I want you to leave us alone

till I tell you to come out.



In your room.


You want some coffee?

Yeah. Sure.

This Pasadena homemaker's name

is Jeanne Bell.

Her husband is

Dr. Lawrence Bell.

But back when we were acquainted,

four years ago,

her name was Vernita Green.

Her code name was Copperhead.

Mine, Black Mamba.

Do you have a towel?



You still take cream

and sugar, right?


So I suppose it's a little late

for an apology?

You suppose correctly.

Look, b*tch, I need to know

if you're gonna start any more sh*t

around my baby girl.

You can relax for now.

I'm not gonna murder you

in front of your child, okay?

That's being more rational

than Bill led me to believe

you were capable of.

It's mercy, compassion,

and forgiveness I lack.

Not rationality.


I know I f***ed you over.

I f***ed you over bad.

I wish to God I hadn't,

but I did.

You have every right

to want to get even.

No, no, no, no, no.


To get even, even Stephen,

I would have to kill you,

go up to Nikki's room, kill her,

then wait for your husband,

the good Dr. Bell, to come home,

and kill him.

That would be even, Vernita.

That'd be about square.

Look, if I could go back

in a machine, I would.

But I can't.

All I can tell you is that

I'm a different person now.

Oh, great.

I don't care.

Be that as it may,

I know I don't deserve

your mercy or your forgiveness.

However, I beseech you for both

on behalf of my daughter.

B*tch, you can stop right there.

Just because I have no wish

to murder you

before the eyes of your daughter

does not mean that parading her

in front of me

is gonna inspire sympathy.

You and I have

unfinished business.

And not a goddamn thing

you've done

in the subsequent four years,

including getting knocked up,

is gonna change that.

So when do we do this?

It all depends.

When do you want to die?


The day after tomorrow?

How about tonight, b*tch?



There's a baseball diamond

where I coach Little League

about a mile from here.

We meet there around 2.30

in the morning,

dressed all in black,

your hair in a black stocking.

And we have us a knife fight.

We won't be bothered.

Now, I have to fix

Nikki's cereal.

Bill said you were one

of the best ladies he saw
