Are you wasting my time,

Bourdette?

Are you wasting my time?

If they find out

I'm talking to you, they'll

they'll kill me.

Tell me how it works.

No, this is...

- this is wrong. This is insane.

- Whoa, whoa.

You're doing the right thing

the brave thing.

Please sit down.

What does the hungry

rabbit jumps mean?

Stop!

Thank you.

- Happy anniversary.

- Happy anniversary.

So where are we five years from now?

Right here at the Lafitte Hotel except

we have a babysitter at home.

I like that.

- Me too.

- A babysitter

blond, about 19 Swedish

and he's very handsome.

Don't f*ck with me.

...plunge to his death today off the roof

of a parking structure on Burgundy Street.

- We're going live to the scene.

- It's where I parked my car.

Joining me is Lieutenant Durgan

with the NOPD.

You think we have a murder victim here?

I'm not gonna comment at this time

but I will tell you that NOPD

is gonna do everything in its power

- to get to the bottom of this.

- Yeah, right, another unsolved case.

- I know what's happening.

- It's New Orleans.

- The city's going in hell.

- Oh, come on, we love New Orleans.

Who dat?

Well, the city may be going to hell

but we are going dancing.

That's right.

- Hey, can I ask you something?

- Yeah.

How did you two meet?

I'll bet it was really juicy and romantic.

- No, not really.

- I thought it was.

Well...

Wait, wait, wait, wait, wait, wait.

Stop. It's a "well"?

I know it's a "well".

Oh, he was sitting with all these kids

like, 14-15 year olds.

Their first time at Symphony

you could tell.

- And they were actually listening.

- One or two of them.

You know I just thought it was incredible

what he was doing for those kids.

Bullshit! Those, no, listen,

those kids were juvenile delinquents.

They were supposed to be in detention

and Will was supposed

to supervise but instead

this son of a bitch uses his own

hard-earned cash

to take them to a concert.

- They are my students.

- Of course, you do.

Some bad ass kids.

Oh, it's not "Ow!". It's Aaaw!

- What? ...What?

- Close your eyes.

Where are you going?

Don't look at me.

- Come back.

- Close your eyes.

Close your eyes.

Tight.

Okay.

Put out your hands.

What are you going to do?

Unspeakable things.

Happy anniversary.

Oh...

It's beautiful.

I didn't think

you've gotten me anything.

Of course, I got you something.

They're little rubies.

Thank you.

I love you.

One at a time, please.

One at a time.

Phone, beepers, knives, guns.

If it rings hand it.

Hand over the phone, Edwin.

- What phone? I'm clean.

- And the beeping is?

- Thank you. Mr. Will.

- Mr. Jimmy.

- Hey, are we still on for tonight?

- You're going down.

Keep dreaming.

Remember if your phone to school,

your parents...

The expense of spirit in a waste

of shame is lust in action.

And till action, lust is perjured

murderous, bloody, full of blame

savage, extreme, rude, cruel, not to trust.

You see what Shakespeare's doing here?

He's using words to create emotions.

What kind of words are these?

They're violent words.

And why is this important?

Because when you feel angry, when you

wanna punch somebody in the face

you put it on paper instead.

You find words that evoke emotions in you

and you do something positive with it.

Edwin.

I could have sworn I saw the principal

take the phone from you this morning.

Guess what?

If you applied yourself half as much to

class as you do to scamming the school

you could accomplish anything.

Ready to suffer?

Bring it on.

- Thank you.

- I'll see you. / I'll see you.

I'm this way.
