Who are you?

Who is he?


Shut up, Angela.

Let him do what he wants.

Go ahead.



Help me!

Please. don't kill me.

Okay, people. Please take your time

in answering this question.

Take a good look at Mr. Boffano.

Have you ever seen him before?

- No. sir. I haven't.

- Would you speak into the mike?

- No. sir. I haven't.

- Not on TV or in the newspapers?

- Do you read newspapers?

- When I have the time.

- How often is that?

- Never.

I'm a single mother

and I'm trying to be a sculptor.

I have a job

and a son to take care of.

I feel stupid saying I don't keep up

with the news. but I don't.

- You've not heard about this case?

- I have heard something.

My son said I might

get picked for the big mafia case.

I said, "What big mafia case?"

He said. "Louie Boffano."

"He's gonna be tried

for popping those guys."

I said. "Who's Louie Boffano?"

He said, "He's the big spaghetti."

Okay, people, enough.

This may be a lengthy trial

and you could be sequestered.

If you tell me this would prove

a hardship to you, I'll excuse you.

I could get someone to take care

of my son when I'm sequestered.

So you would like to serve?

Yes. I would.

The car's registered

to Annie Laird.

48 Seminary Lane,

Pharaoh, N.Y.

- Were you a star today?

- No. I was a zero kid.

Do you know where Jesse is

on Dragon Rider? The fifth dome.

I can't make the second dome

without Troll Slayer clobbering me.

- Maybe Nintendo's not your forte.

- It's Sega.

You should focus on something else,

like your homework.

You were a star

in county court today.

I told them you called Louie Boffano

the big spaghetti.

- You're on that case?

- If they take me.

She just picked up her kid.

We're going west on Ratner.

Thank you, Eddie.

Stay with her.

I'm gonna check out her place.

They killed the old godfather

and his grandson.

It made me start thinking about you.

I've told you about responsibility.

Okay! It wasn't such a good idea,

but it is a little bit exciting.

I need a little excitement.

- Eddie, what's going on?

- We're at some kind of church.

Maybe she's a religious freak.

I think we ought to let this one go.

- She's at work. Relax.

- Yeah. whatever.

Anything at all about the trial,

you have to cut it out.

- You don't read the paper.

- Whatever, just do it.

While the jury deliberates

you'll have to stay with Mrs. Kolodny.

- For how long?

- However long it takes.

Tell me you're kidding.

You go in, you come out,

and you say "guilty".

Say, "Fry the sucker!" How long

does that take? Six seconds?

End it:
"Sincerely, John Slivey,

Devotional Services, Inc."

Math... now!


She's walking towards the car

with her kid.

- What do you think of her?

- I don't think nothing.

- Do you think she's sexy?

- Come on, she's a mommy.

I think she's sexy and smart.

This isn't your average mommy.

- I think she's trouble.

- I think she's brilliant.

She makes sculptures

that you have to feel.

Get out of there.

She's coming your way.

They just turned into the driveway.

Get the f*ck out of there.

They're at the front door.

Go out the back.

What the f*ck are you doing?

They're going in the front door.

Get out the back.

Come on.

I'm hungry.

Is there anything to eat?

It's your duty to feed me.

I can't do it, I'm too busy...

beating your butt at Dragon Rider!

Turn on the machine.

and I'll call for pizza.

- Get it with sausage.

- Get out of my face.

- Sausage is good.

- I'd like to order a large pizza.

Use your axe! Turn around.

- Die, you sucker!

- Hit him again.

- Don't let him get away.
