All right, Earl.

Next, come on, step right through.

-Looking good, Mick!

-Hey Lou.

Mick! Mick, I just called you...

Hey, I just called you at the office.

I... I gotta talk to you.

-Come on, stick with me.

-How long you gonna be in today?

Depends on the judge, calls my client.

See, what does this say about me that

I let you treat me like this, huh?

I'm giving you a big cashing whoop in

the world... help me man.

-My daughter's about to go to surgery.

-I've heard it all before, Val.

-You understand?

-Come on. Talk to me. What do you got?

Okay, I got something big for you.

This guy's gonna be the big money

to Inglewood.

But the problem is, if he goes up

before the judges,

-at noon, okay? You listening to me?

-I'm listening.

So, the client, his mother...

his mother who comes

to the office at 8 a.m in

the morning...

-and...

-Has he already got a lawyer?

Just listen.

Listen, it's not criminal.

It's just real estate, okay?

And I made them so crazy about you...

that they now wanna put up their

Malibu beach house against a million.

-The bail's a million?

-Yeah, yeah...

-What did they book this guy for?

-Well, I'd say it's romantic.

The cops are saying

he beat up the girl really bad,

they wanna sell assault with

a deadly weapon...

-throw in it the GPI's...

-The D.A filed yet?

Is he dead?

See, I take care of my friends.

I even take care of you, bubba.

Inglewood by noon.

You could do it, man.

Go through some red lights...

-Break the speed limits.

-How did it comes down? Is this real?

-Don't bullshit me, is this real?

-Of course it is, would I lie to you?

You're gonna take care of me, right?

Make them forget the beach house

and go for my bond?

What's the name?

Louis. Louis Roulet.

R O U L E T. Like the wheel.

Alright, spare the wheel,

but, you got it.

Roberto.

You mind checking that list? See if

our man uh... Harold Casey is on it?

Oh, don't go that low... I got a

case across town at noon.

I gotta get to.

You mind just bringing him down?

It'll only be a sec.

-Reynaldo.

-Pardon me?

My name's Reynaldo, not Roberto.

Us bailiffs all look alike, right?

-Your man white?

-Yeah, he's white.

I got blacks down here right now.

Alright, listen.

Reynaldo.

My bad on your name. I do a lot of

askin', I guess I was wrong.

But I didn't forget you at Christmas

time, did I?

Remember that giant

nut with the prizes

signed Happy holidays,

your friend, Nick?

I went through those pretty fast.

Alright, let's make it two this time.

Okay.

I'll bring your buddy down,

but you'd better make it quick.

Gracias, Reynaldo.

Harold Casey.

Yeah, bring him down.

Harold!

You shouldn't be running from

your lawyer. That's bad form.

You know what I wanna talk about?

In a minute,

Judge Powell's gonna call us down.

He's gonna wanna know

if we're ready for trial.

-We are?

-We are not.

And you know why not.

Rule one, I get paid.

Or I don't work.

Alright! Don't worry,

I got your money.

Exactly, you got it.

-I don't.

-It's coming, I talked to my boys.

Listen, Harold, I look down the list

of people I trust.

You're not on it.

The law says you can't just quit.

The judge won't let you.

I looked it up.

Pay close attention.

Michael Haller for the defense,

your honour.

If I may, I'd like to carry this over.

You have a reason, Mr. Haller?

Having trouble locating a witness,

your honour.

An indispensable witness, a Mr. Green?

How much time do you need?

That's hard to say.

Does the state object?

No, your honour.

Alright, we'll hold this over.

Pending notification from counsel.
