Hello? Oh.

Karen, hi, listen.

I'm so glad you called. Do you think...

Do you think we could make it 7:30?

Yeah. Yeah, that'd be great.

Er... I'm having a terrible day.

Maurice just butchered...

he just butchered my hair.

I don't know what the hell

he thought he was doing.

OK, great. OK, bye.

Yeah, it's all over

your nose, Danielle.

Oh, go ahead and roll your cookies.

Danielle, what happened

at school today?

Charlie said, "Can I

borrow your Twinkie?"

I said, "No", and he said,

"You don't need it, Porky!"

And he squeezed it.

That's not what I heard.

What else happened?


I... I socked him in the back.

Danielle, honey, you can't keep going

round socking people in the back.

It's just not right. It's stupid.

- It's anti-social.

- What's "anti-social"?


- Do you know what "social" is?

- No.

Social is like what we're doing right now...

making cookies and talking and laughing.


Now, anti-social would be if

Mommy grabbed your cookie-cutter

and chopped up all your cookies

and threw them on the ground.

That's anti-social.

OK, you understand?

You're not gonna do it again?


Come here and give me

a big hug and kiss.

Let me see. There's

icing on your nose.

I said, "Dr Sutter,

on the ceiling?"

He says, "Oh, you said that

I needed sound insulation."

"It was just a suggestion."

I said, "Yeah..."

I said, "No, no, no, that's fine,

that's fine. It's a great idea."

It's a beautiful idea...

soundwise, I'm talking soundwise.

You have to be a retired plastic

surgeon to come up with that.


God, it's beautiful! You've

really customized it.

- Do you like the ivory?

- Mm-hmm, it looks a little like Danielle.

That's cold. That's cold.

I road-tested Sutter's living room.

- You should have seen his face.

- Oh, do it!

Do what?

Come on, just do it for me. Please!



OK, horn loaded tweeters

there, there, there and there.

And all the bass out this end.

Of course you have to

have heavy-duty cables.

That's what separates

the men from the boys.

- Right.

- Well...

People think I'm kidding

when I do that.

You know, they... they can't believe

that I really feel it, right there.

It's like I got a tuning fork.

- Here in my sinus cavities.

- I know.

It's weird. It's like... I can't

do it with my eyes open.

Yes, you can.

Come here.


'We're not getting much information

at all from the police

'about what the murder scene looks like

or about the intriguing report... '

Uh, pushed the wrong damn button.

'... murders of two

wealthy housewives.

'Homicide detective Mendoza

had no comment for us

'when we asked him if the killing

here could be related to the murder

'last August of Mrs Jennifer Ann

Timmonds up in Phoenix... '

Give me a break!


Can we just get a lead

line on this, please?

Are there any witnesses at all?

- Come on, give us a break, would you?

- One statement, please.

I know a goddamn work

of art when I see one.

Didn't you ever look

at a Picasso, Lucas?

Picasso, my ass!

I'm talking post-cubist Picasso.

Why should I look at a goddamn Picasso?

I'm a medical man, not a hippie.

Or maybe even later.

You know, Lucas, you're becoming

a real bore this evening.

I can't even hold a civilized

conversation with you, you know that?

Excuse me, sir, we haven't

printed in there yet.

OK, OK, OK, I'm not

touching a thing.

The sonofabitch took a shower.

Here. This looks like a

nice piece right there.

I had to pick Danielle

up from school today.

How come?

She socked someone

in the back again.

- I met the new principal, too.
