Mrs. Zimmerman, Tony Krauch.
Mr. Zimmerman's wife's cousin
Tony Krauch. Mrs. Zimmerman's
Mrs. Zimmerman's maiden name
Tony Krauch, Mr.
Zimmerman's wife's cousin.
Meat bill. Meat bill.
- Kenneth Bartlett's office.
- Hello, Ken, I got one!
- I got a case for you.
- Yeah? Well, who is it? What's it about?
You know Zimmerman's Meat Market,
two stores this side of the corner?
You know the Zimmerman
that's gonna sue us if we don't pay?
Well, it's not Mr. Zimmerman,
but it's Mr. Zimmerman's wife's cousin.
- B-But what's happened?
- I'm telling you.
Tony Krauch is in trouble. He's
accused of stealing a carload of hams.
Mrs. Zimmerman knows that you're a lawyer, and she
thinks maybe if you handle the case for Tony Krauch,
we'll be able to pay
her husband for the meat.
- Isn't it wonderful?
- And he didn't do it, did he?
He didn't really steal
the carload of hams, did he?
- I forgot to ask, but probably he didn't, Ken. Well, I'm sure he didn't.
But even if he did,
you've got to take the case.
You just can't represent people who
aren't guilty. You can't afford to.
If he didn't do it,
I'll be glad to represent him.
But if he
- if he's guilty, I won't touch it. You know that.
He's on his way to your office now.
Mrs. Zimmerman just called him up.
If you get Tony Krauch acquitted, Mrs. Zimmerman has
another cousin, a lady cousin, who wants a divorce.
Ken, this is the biggest break
you've ever had.
Will you let me know how it comes out? Will you let
me know just as soon as you've talked to Tony Krauch?
Sure I'll call ya. I'll let you
know what happens. And here's hoping.
And will you please take the case,
even if he-
I mean, will you
let me know right away?
Yes, I love you too.
Good-bye, honey. Good luck.
H- How- How do you do?
I'm Tony Krauch.
Oh, y-yes. My wife, Mrs. Bartlett, uh,
phoned that you were coming here and-
They can't prove nothin'.
Naturally, when a-
when a man is innocent-
I'll admit frankly I'm far from
being a prominent attorney,
but I do have certain principles and a
code of practice to which I strictly adhere.
- Well, ['m a stickler for honesty. Okay by me.
What I mean is I must know right at the start
whether you stole the hams or didn't steal them.
I didn't steal no hams.
Well, then that settles everything.
I'll be glad to represent you,
and I'm certain we shall prove
your innocence in a court of law.
You tell 'em. I got alibis,
plenty of alibis. Good.
Uh, now, Mr. Krauch,
before we delve into the facts, I think
we should have a perfect understanding.
I'm very happy to represent you,
and I'm going to ask a fee of one hundred dollars.
Okay by me.
That's fine, Mr. Krauch.
Now, of course, you gotta wait.
Wait? Yeah, for your dough.
I mean until I sell the hams.
Mmm. Hello. Hello.
Oh, Ken. Ken, what happened?
- He stole the hams.
- But what happened?
- You turned him down?
- In a way. I mean, I threw him out.
You threw him out?
Ken, doesn't it mean anything to you that you've
just thrown out the cousin of our butcher's wife?
Where are we gonna get our meat now? And where
are we gonna get the money to trade any place...
if you won't take
a case when it's offered to you?
Oh, Helen, how can you talk like that
when I've told you the man is guilty?
Well, I don't care whether he's guilty or not.
Somebody's got to represent him. Who are we-
Helen, listen. I love you,
but I'm not going
to argue with you about a man...
