Where's Emma? Emma?!

Emma! Emma!

Emma, where are you, honey? Emma?

Emma?

Oh God. Oh my God.

Are you okay?

Oh God.

Okay. Okay.

Oh, thank God.

I saw a scary man.

Neither fate nor society put

Francis Mulligan in the house

of Gloria Mitchell

on the night of the 15th.

Neither fate nor society

told him to tie her up,

shove a gun in her face

and steal her belongings.

That was his choice.

The defense would have you

walk in his client's shoes.

Well, I have.

I'm from Riverdale.

It's a craphole.

Nobody's saying it's not, but...

that's where I'm from.

It's not who I am.

He is not the victim here.

So if you are gonna put

yourself in anyone's shoes...

put yourself...

in Gloria Mitchell's.

Thank you.

The jury will now adjourn

to deliberate a verdict.

Nice close.

Straight to your top five.

- You like that?

- Yeah, I did.

"Not who I am. " That was very cute.

- I gotta go.

- Mitch, the jury only just left.

Guilty, five years,

parole after two.

- How do you know that?

- One, the judge is soft

on the educationally-challenged

and nobody got shot.

And two?

I don't lose.

Well, that part's true.

- That's why I hate you.

- See you tonight.

Look up. Look up.

Please.

- One more.

- No. Absolutely not.

- Look at those tiny little hands.

- I know.

I can't believe her.

Looks so perfect.

She's so peaceful.

Thank you.

We're lucky.

I'm sorry I have to go

to this work thing tonight.

I wish I could stay here with you.

- Help me.

- Careful, it's slippery.

Guys.

Tomorrow, thank you.

Good night, boys.

I f*cking hate Tequila!

Everybody hates Tequila.

That's the idea.

Well, I...

I didn't know what to get

the man who has everything, so...

He's got a career,

a beautiful little baby...

- Oh, my little baby.

- ... a sexy wife.

- Careful.

- And then it hits me...

I'm gonna get the man

a Tequila hangover.

So, Mitch, tomorrow morning, you are

gonna wake up complete, my friend.

That's right.

- Thank you. Thank you.

- I helped.

Complete.

You okay getting home?

Yeah. Gonna get a...

- gonna get a cab.

- All right.

Oh.

- Hello?

- This is a collect call

from an inmate

at Concord penitentiary.

To accept this call, press 1.

- Everything okay?

- Yeah.

Yeah. Ugh. See you tomorrow.

Listen, when you throw up

in the middle of the night,

- aim away from your baby.

- Yeah, I will.

- Aim away from the baby.

- Away from the baby.

I promise.

Don't puke on your child, Mitch.

- I won't puke on my child.
