Sex - the world's oldest profession...

...and the only one in which women

are paid more than men,

which explains why men

were so quick to make it illegal.

No. you got to let me go.

I gotta go.

Please stop! No!

What are you doing?

Stop.

Chapter One...

The first day of the term.

My favorite day of the year...

Young women with glowing faces,

and not-so-innocent smiles.

Ah, yes,

the ladies of Barden College.

These are the kind of women,

regardless of what they do at night,

they wake up as virgins

in the morning.

Well, some of them do.

Heave, ho

The world we go

Fast, slow

A pain until we flow

You take me home just so you know

You got to quid pro quo

You and me, interchangeably

Make sure

We're the recipes

Because we can both agree

Nothing is for free

I want to know

What makes you go

Oh, oh

'Cause I get satisfaction when you

Oh, I won't go, you won't go

I won't cage me

in this cage again and see

Eenie, meenie, miney, moe

Barden College.

- Catch this kitty by the toe...

A paradise for men who love women.

If she purrs then you will know...

And then there were the cops.

you, "numb nuts".

This is outrageous.

I want to see the Chief now.

Chief's out. He's playing golf.

Then find me the asshole

who wrote me this ticket.

I'm the asshole, sir.

It's illegal to park in front of City Hall.

Well, it's not illegal for me to park in front of

City Hall. I'm the Mayor, for Christ's sake!

You're Detective Kelly?

- Yeah.

So you're Sergeant Ferraro, huh?

Call me Beck if it's more convenient.

Eh, Sergeant's fine.

Hey...

you need this?

- What's that?

The details of your hearing?

- Yeah.

I read it already... pretty unpleasant.

yeah.

Oh, yeah, don't start with that crap.

you may be a Detective,

but I'm you're commanding officer.

you work for me.

The Chief was only willing to

take the risk on those conditions...

...and if you have a problem with that,

you should register a complaint now.

Why would I have a problem?

Well, some guys don't like

working for women.

Hey, what's not to like, huh?

I know you f*cked on your lastjob.

I know your wife ran off. I know a lot

of shit you don't want to talk about.

You're lucky to have this job.

I figured...

...you'd be grateful enough

to try to fit in.

I hope you won't miss your big city

drug busts and gang-land hits.

I'm done with the drug dealers.

I guess killing one would do that to you.

I was cleared of that.

Ah, and you don't want to talk about it.

I'm a very good detective, Sergeant.

That file isn't going to tell you

the whole picture, okay?

I do what needs to get done.

Okay?

Welcome.

Welcome to Fourth Term Shakespeare.

I'm Noah Melville,

and you can call me "Sir".

No, I'm kidding.

Call me whatever you want.

Right.

"A pound of flesh

which I demand of him...

...is dearly bought.

'Tis mine and I will have it."

All right, first context.

What century is

William Shakespeare writing in?

Anyone?

Oh, you all know this.

Rachel?

Care to join us?

yes. Thanks.

Shakespeare's century is actually

the Sixteenth and Seventeenth.

you're absolutely right.

William Shakespeare was born

in 1564, died in 1616.

You don't have to write that down

because it's immaterial.

It's what comes

in between that counts!

Let's start from the beginning,

shall we?

We're going to read a little bit

of "Merchant of Venice".

Act One, Scene One.

The merchant Antonio laments...

"I know not why I am so sad.

It wearies me.

You say it wearies you...

...but how I caught it, found it,

or came by...

...what stuff 'tis made of it,

wherever it is born...
