glorified gopher really I see You wanna meet them? My dad is making his famous
turkey chili Yeah? hm, you know that I’m not
really dressed for it What are you talking about?
This is the beach, come on
you look great Yeah?
Yeah sure Well I’ve never had
famous chili before Good
Ok
Great, allright hm, formal introductions I’m Eric
I’m Lindsay Hi
Hi
and my dog’s Elly Elly come here Here Elly I want you to dismiss
the Roger Tabor case Anything else princess? Hank you and I know it’s a dog,
the complaining witness is an
alcoholic and a pillhead an obsessive who’s calling my
client 50 times a day, I can play
the tape from his answering machine Your client admitted to being
at her appartment the night
of the alledged rape the medical report shows
multiple contusions, and
abrasions She called him that night
threatening to kill
herself, so he went and when he got there she was stoned
on drugs and alcohol and all banged up
from falling down the stairs So he sobered her up and he left Why didn’t he take her to the hospital
if she’s so suicidal? Because she wasn’t really
suicidal, just manipulatif Further evidence by de facto that she had
him arrested for rape when the doctors
found no evidence of seminal fluid She said he was wearing a condom A fastidious rapist It happens Ok, the truth is I don’t think
this is the greatest case either
but the victim has a cousin who’s a reporter.
Meaning what? Meaning she’s threatened if
we don’t pursue this… the cousin will do an exposé on
how the d.a.’s office is soft on
date rape Come on
are you trying to tell me that my client has to suffer the humiliation
of a public trial because you are too
lacking in testosteron to do the right thing Come on we both know you’re such
a brilliant lawyer the case will
never get to trial, hm You’ll take her apart on
the stand at the prelim, the judge will dismiss the case and
they’ll be mad at him and not at me, eh Places to go, people to meet See you on Monday, princess Well? Sorry, but this isn’t gonna to
be as easy as I thought it would be Is there any coffee? Do we have a wee
bit of a hangover I’m just tired The first night in a new place
is always hard to sleep Well, you got in pretty late I hope I didn’t wake you up Oh, no I wasn’t spying I, I was in
the kitchen getting a glass of water I’m having a tiny snack Ok, ok not so tiny Well, actually I did… ran into an old friend and
I guess we got to talking and… maybe I did have a little
bit too much wine Hm, friend of the male persuasion
Yeah A possibility? A friend Well, actually I did have this
big crush on him when I was 17 but we’re just friends I believe you Jade’s door is still closed,
I guess she’s still sleeping The mystery woman I wonder how she got this
fabulous house? Well, you can bet she didn’t
get it by scrapping floors I bet she’s a widow, she has
a certain sadness about her I don’t pick it up A dead husband, I mean Among her other talents,
Joy is a psychic I can read your fortune for
you some time if you like I’m really not into that I guess it’s my…
pragmatic lawyers’ training I could tell you more about
this new guy Oh, my God, it’s him
it’s Eric, hm How do I look? Beautiful honey, beautiful
Ok I told her she’d meet interesting
people in Malibu and she’s already met the Adler’s That’s their son, Eric
Isn’t he gorgeous? They do these low budget artie
films, they’re very famous I can’t wait to meet them
Ok bye you guys. Bye
Bye Honey bunny you’re sure you
don’t want me to go with you Maybe next time By the smoke of this incense I cleanse
all the talismans and all it’s impureties preparing it for the power
that I will have it possess Hi Where were you,
I was starting to worry You won’t believe what happened Doesn’t it smell nice,
burning sage it banishes all evil Oh, and I unpacked all your things They gave me a part in their new movie The Adlers?
Are you serious? It’s not a big part, just a
small part, a handful of ligns but I’m in a lot of scenes and it’s two
weeks work on location in Toronto Oh, hm, sweetheart this is
the middle of pilot season 2 weeks in Toronto and you will be out
of the running for al the new tv series Yes but this is a job this is
real work as an actress I can get my setcard Oh, in some bitpark they’ll play
in an art house for a week and
then you’ll be back at square one First this week you
wanna hit tv series and by this time next year your face
is on the cover of People Magazine and, and big movie producers are
ligning up to have you star in their
films at a million bucks a pop I know that that
was our original plan but I really want to do this movie and I can come up
for midseason pilots I know you There’s something more,
something you’re not telling me Scary the way you can read my mind I like him Eric, and he is working on a movie and he’s the first guy I’ve really liked
since … Boyd I could still kill him for
the way he dumped you Let’s not talk about it,
it gives him too much power So, ok who do I call up
to work out your deal? Well, they say I should get an agent Well, honey bunny I’m your agent Well I, I know but they said I should
get, you know a real agent huh to get out there more and now
is this best time because they
won’t hire you unless you’re working I mean only if you wouldn’t mind Oh, of course, I understand,
it makes sense Ok, well they gave me the names
of a few agents so I guess
we should just call them in the morning Ok honey bunny Is there anyone here
that knows this woman You settle down, she’s with me Was she like shot?
Looks that way Oh my God Who is it?
I don’t know I thought you said this was
a safe neighbourhood
It is Try and tell her that At least the cops are cute here I’ll see you later Are you really sure I’m not intruding? this, this won’t take a minute
mostly I just wanted to thank
you, for being so nice to my sister Well, she’s lovely
she’s very easy to be nice to hm, you know with her face
if she works on her craft I think she could have a big career Well, I obviously think you have
exceptionally good taste and
I totally agree with you it’s just I’m afraid she can’t
do this movie for you She was so excited about it It is in Toronto, right? Well, we are paying round
trip transportation
and predeam of course And there will be snow by
next month in Toronto, is that true? Well there better be otherwise
we’re in big trouble Well, you see that’s the problem She can’t be in the snow
it’s too soon Has she been sick? I guess she didn’t tell
you very much about herself Oh, well we talked so much we
probably didn’t give her a chance Well, our father died last year It was a long horrible death from
cancer and we all died a little with him and two days after we buried him
our mother killed herself Oh, that’s terrible On a freezing cold day in
the County State Illinois our mother unable to live with the
man that she loved for 34 years went outside and put
a shotgun in her mouth It was Lindsay who found her,
her blood splattered all over the snow How horrible for her Well she had an psychotic
break from the shock but the doctors told me
that the only hope would be
if I agreed to have her institutionalized But she seems fine now Well, after 7 months in a locked ward and the move to Los Angeles for a
change of climate and scenery, yes Thank God she does seem fine but the fear is if that she’s back in
that cold weather and that climate I spoke to her doctors and they
said it was just too soon to
expose her to terms like that Well, I don’t know what to say except… Well, of course I’m terribly sorry and we do understand the doctors also said not to
reinforcing her mind that she is an emotional cripple so if, if you could say that, that you changed
your mind or, or any other reason it would be better
than me telling her she’s just, she’s just too sick Of of course, of course Well, thank you Thanks for being so nice to my sister Well now you take good care of her ok?
Thanks It was just like Joy said the
minute we moved to Malibu I got
the job. Can you believe it? It was so incredible Oh, speak of the devil or the angel
I should say, here she is Mom wants to say hi Hi mom That coffee smells great Help yourself
Thanks You’re a lawyer, right?
Yeah? Do you know anything
about criminal law? That’s what I specialise in Why? You need a lawyer? Why do you ask? You asked me Good morning honey bunny’s Good morning You misunderstood I’ll might go out for
a little while just a reminder my wing of the house
is private and please don’t answer
my phone, ok See you later Bye So listen I might have been a little
too hasty in offering you the role At first we’d offered it to an
other actress and she
turned it down because her baby was sick but she called this morning
and said he was fine … now So since we offered it to her first You’re lying, aren’t you? You know, my sister warned me
that something like this could happen for men like you it’s just kind
of a powertrip over women Oh, no Lindsay come on it’s not
like that at all, I really do like you As a matter of fact I like to make
it up to you. If you want to go
to the screening with me to the tonight Oh, isn’t that cute, you tangle the best thing in
front of me and then you snatch it away and smile
and say you wanna go to the movies? Lindsay I mean it,
I swear to you Look Eric, forget it ok
just leave me alone Hello? Hi, is Jade there? No I’m fine. Jade’s not here
right now. Who’s calling? Oh, it’s just Scott Oh really, Scott? What did you say? If it sounds right if I stop by you
shortly and get a little action
something just didn’t … Y, you want me what? Oh, for how much? No
I’m not complaining No I’m not more expensive than Jade Well, why don’t we call it a grant
and you can… Oh, please Scott, aren’t
we the creative boy? Oh unfortunately my cat eye
I hear a client at the door.
I’ll have to get back to you on that My name? My name is …
Minion Honey what’s wrong? You were right He lied to me about the job He’s such a bastard Oh, I know honey, you just
can’t trust anyone in this town But at least you still have me Don’t worry honey bunny,
I’ll get you a better job Glad you called. I’m sorry about the
other night, I didn’t mean to frighten you That’s allright. I haven’t change
my mind about seeing you But you’re here You told me you’re an attorney,
is that true? Of course I need some professional advice Your check, sir The other night I had these two clients.
You told me you were leaving the life Well, he offered me a lot of money Jade, I could give you
anything you wanted No, I don’t want to be
depending on anyone So turning tricks is back It was definitely my last Anyway this guy was crazy,
I had to pull a gun Is that it?
I shot him
Death? I shot him in the hand Then forget about him.
But there’s more to it There was a woman with him
she was found murdered
I think this guy might’ve done it I don’t know if I should go to the police When you do, they’ll ask
you how you know him All you’ve got is a suspicion anyway Do you think they’d investigate? Well now, you know trying to find him
could be a lot of trouble And there you are just sitting there
confessing to being a prostitute Do you think they’d bust me? A big hooker bust in Malibu
and it’s reactionary tryings
I’ll bet you to too My advice to you my darling as a lawyer and … devoted friend Let it go Forget all about it I’ll give you a call Don’t I hope you call me Jade, at least let me
be your friend Thanks Hal Are you Minion? You get the wrong house Jade’s house? Play your cards right and I’ll
to get her and Minion Get your hands off me,
or I’m gonna call the police I’m not very big on
role playing, but ok You’re virgin and I’m
dirty old man

Stop it! Hey what are you doing? Get off of her!
Get it off! Hey Scott just get the hell

that matters. She’s ok I’ll be right back I’m so sorry about that Go away Oh please go away I’m sorry to disturb you Perry said you had a migraine,
and I thought maybe I could help Oh, I’m miserable I’ve been to a thousands doctors
and nothing helps Well, I know these secret
acupressure points I can’t stand to see you like this.
Could I at least try? Sure, give it a shot.
Ok Try not to resist Ok take a deep breath in … out … Jade I want you to know,
that I know the truth about you What do you mean? I know what you do for a living No right to privacy eh Well, I do have to protect my sister and that man attacked her.
I know, I’m sorry that
shouldn’t have happened He’s a neighbour,
he lives down the beach He probably had a little
too much to drink and things
just got out of hand He’s harmless He didn’t act harmless He acted like a pervert.
He’s not Am I supposed to just take
your word for it? He’s a very succesful businessman,
he’s got a lot of women after him he doesn’t want emotional
involvement, so he pays for sex What is he some big tv
executive or something? Saw his license plate, it said
NETWORK 1 on it I, I don’t mean to pry of course His name is Scott Sterling. He’s head
of series development at DBS Boy, you must meet all types Jade I, I really don’t mean to
judge you or anything but how did you become a prostitute? You can trust me It was due poor and hungry I thought I could sell my body
without selling my soul too but it doesn’t work that way So I’m getting out now while there’s
still enough of me left to fight
for something better in my life Thanks for being so honest
with me, Jade I’am glad you quit And I feel safe here now,
for me and for Lindsay Oh and Jade I just want
you to know that I would
never betray your confidences your secrets are totally safe with me For you.

He raped me and he’ll do it again!
You filthy rapist! You rapist! You filthy rapist! Ms. Hunter I’m Mr. Tabor’s attorney, I’d ask that you

before I call the police Oh please do we’ll have so much to chat
about when they get here assault attempted rape What? The little blonde down the beach You’re eh …
The fat sister eh, look that was a mistake Oh, I know honey bunny you thought she was a whore someone you could pay to indulge
in your sickest and kinkiest appetite Well, who told you that?
Jade? She’s a liar No, you told me Hi, this is Minion and your wish
is my command. Remember now? Tell me something Scott, your boss at the Network, is it true what I read about him? Sort a of straight-laced family
churchgoing kinda guy. Just don’t
play with me, what do you want? Do you believe in passed life Scott? Cause the second I saw you, I felt you and I,
oh we, just sorta I think I’m gonna puke Ok Fine One life at a time In this one my sister is an actress I’m her manager and you a
potention employer You’re blackmailing me for
a job for your sister? Karmic justice, honey bunny Oh, surely you’ve
heard of karmic justice So what is her name? Allison, Allison Hunter Oh, eh The last time I took her out,
I, I noticed that she had
these scars on her wrist She told me she tried to
commit suicide in college Was there anything else? Ok, now I’m gonna have to
ask you about your divorce My divorce? Well I don’t know how to sugar-coat
this but where there any
allegations of violence Violence? God no Well then why did she leave you? Look Roger I don’t mean to invade your privacy
but I doubt that the D.A. gonna have any such
compunctions and I don’t want to get sandbagged Allright in broad strokes
she left me for another guy And in short strokes We had the perfect live, you know We had this beautiful
victorian house, so we restore with our own hands I had time to do my writing and she did her ceramics We had three dogs
and two cats And I guess that the only thing missing
from the perfect scenario was …
a kid After years of doctors and procedures
we’d pretty much given up and she got pregnant our baby was stillborn She never got over it, when
the other guy came along
I guess he looked like the solution Were you angry at her
for leaving you? I was angry at myself
for being such a coward What do you mean a coward? She was in bed for months, you know? Just crying all the time She couldn’t cope It scared the hell outa me Were you scared that she would
never snap out of it I scared that if I let myself
feel it too it would
kill me, so I tried to act all strong and stow it
but I wasn’t strong,
I was a weakling I was just a pathetic weakling
that she had to turn to another man
with her sorrow You know you’re being
really hard on yourself, Roger?
You wanna know what the real kicker is? The pain catches up with you anyway I know, hell I do know You told me you were engaged once You eh don’t want to talk about it If you still don’t want to talk about it,
it’s cool Well, the hell of it is that I was cynical about love all my life, you know
I even had this poster in my
room that said: “A woman needs a man like
a fish needs a bicycle” and than I met Mitch and … I was never happier
in my whole life So great now what I do with it? So why did he break
off the engagement? Hey, do you want me to beat
the jerk up for you? He’s dead Oh, oh God Perry I, I’m sorry
I had no idea Well, there’s no way
that you could, he was eh a police detective he was killed in the line of duty I’m sorry No, hey, hey hey, hey that’s ok I just, I just should
be over it by now It’s ok, it’s ok
I understand ok? I understand, it’s ok, it’s ok
it’s ok to feel it, it’s ok sst
just let it go Oh God, I miss him I miss him so much How was the show like? Well it’s an tumble show but
Lindsay is in a great girl part Stop you’re making me so nervous.
I haven’t even read it for it yet Where’s the camera? I have this
strong feeling, I just feel Ok, ok we’ll change the subject Perry?
Hm, hm
Would you like a glass of white wine? No thank you So, how’s the relationship? It’s not a relationship,
he’s a friend and a client Client?
uh,uh
Like in case Sexual assault Rape? uh, Yeah Your highschool crush is a rapist? Jee, you have worse taste in men then I do.
Alledged, alledged, alledged
He didn’t do it He says Look, you know I really shouldn’t be
talking to you about this Ok?
Ok I’m sorry It’s just that I really like you and I, I

Thank you Bye. Bye. Goodnight.
Have fun I’m coming Good evening Ma’am I’m Sergeant Munoz This is my partner Officer Palmer.
Is this about Roger Tabor? Well, has something happened to him? Miss Victoria Paige Tremont? There’s nobody by that name here Also known as Jade O’Keeffe Great what happened
to Sandra Holmes? This is Miss O’Keeffe’s residence Is she in? I’m not certain I’m an attorney.
Do you represent the accused? Do you have a warrant? Great she’s gonna get busted
for hooking and it’s going
to be in all the papers Uh, oh we don’t live here,
we’re just visiting Perry What’s going on? Victoria Paige Tremont? Are you Victoria Paige Tremont? Also known as Jade O’Keeffe Yes Would you please step outside Ma’am Turn around please, put your hands behind
your back, palms facing one another.
What’s going on? You’re under arrest for the murder
of Betty LaZurnick The girl that was found on the beach.
Best not don’t say anything else Just don’t say anything else
I’m gonna follow you to the station Murder? Victoria Paige Tremont. Well, you
don’t think the Tremonts of Virginia? You got a cigarette, girlfriend?
No So what did you got you on, anyway? You’ll have to excuse me if I don’t
feel particularly in a conversation Oh, this whore’s been to college What do you think, just cause you’re
wearing some Armani clothes no one
can tell you’re a whore? You O’Keeffe?
Yes
You’re lawyer’s here to see you Hey what do you West Sides
whores get anyway for half a cast? Maybe we get work together
when we get outa here! Hi
Hi Put my blouson on.
Thanks So can I go home now? Well I tried to run a writ habeas corpus
but the D.A. is opposing bail so the
judge want it punt till the arraignment What does that mean in English? I’m sorry Jade but there’s nothing
more I can do for you
until the arraignment on Monday Monday? That is if you even want me
to represent you? Just tell me what you can do for me Well, I have the arrest and the
forensic’s reports by then and I’ll have a better idea what their
case is against you but no matter what
they’ve got I think that the best strategy is to plead innocent and
ask for a jury trial It’s not a strategy, I’m innocent. I only
met that girl once. Look Jade you should
think about it before you tell me anything If you tell me one story now and then
change it later, I can’t put you on the
stand I’d be suborning perjury There is no story Ok You said you met her once Yeah, professionally, I eh … I got a call from this guy who
offered me 3000 dollars You remember his name?
No Anyway he showed up with this girl
and they wanted an smm scene but I’m
not in to that kinda of thing and I told him I asked them to leave but they refused,
things got a little out of hand,
they got rough with me So I managed to talk my way
out of the room, I got my gun and he tried to take the gun away
from me, he came at me and
I shot him, I hit him in the hand And did he bleed on the
carpet in your bedroom? Yeah Well, the police will take that into
evidence. Are they gonna find
the deceased’ blood too? I told you I never touched her Did they take my gun? Yeah
Then they’ll see that
the bullets won’t match How do you know that
she was shot? Who’s side are you on, anyway? I saw that girl on the beach
death with bullet holes in her Well it was then that you asked
me if I was a criminal lawyer Right, I decided that I didn’t know
you well enough to trust you
so I called an ex client of mine A lawyer?
Yeah, his name is Hal Lanford I told him that I thought this
guy may have killed her and that I should, maybe I
should go to the police
and tell them what I knew but he said not to that they’d
probably bust me for prostitution Well you know, if you’d wave the
attorney client privilege, he could prove
to be a very useful witness for us Great, I’m sure he’ll verify
everything I’ve told you You know Jade I’m on your side It’s just that like you said before we don’t
know each other very well so I have to be
certain that you’re being straight with me so that I can provide you
with an effective defense. Ok? Ok, but you can believe
what I’m telling you Just please do your job and
get me outa here I’ll do the best that I can Good morning Honey bunny
Good morning I brought you some coffee,
just the way you like it
double strength, French frost Thanks.
Sure You were at the jail so late last
night, I must’ve fallen asleep So how is she? I’m really worried about her Well, she’s pretty traumatized,
if you want to know the truth Well, I mean it’s such an injustice I mean she’s obviously
innocent, isn’t she? Well you know, Jade’s a client,
so it really isn’t very
ethical for me to talk about it Well, well did you speak to any
of her family? The Tremonts? I’ll just faint if you tell me
they’re the Tremonts of Virginia Look, Joy like I told you
before I can’t discuss it Well, I guess it couldn’t be those
Tremonts because if she
were an heiress to billions why would she be a hooker? Look I’ve got some files
to go over, ok? Oh, of course Oh, by the way em, last night I
heard your phone ringing
while you were at the jail but I just let it ring, I figured your
phone machine would pick it up It did, thanks So was it him? Who?
Roger Eh, no You must really feel rejected,
being stood up like that last night It’s no big deal You know, I can’t believe men, the way
they come on like gang busters and
then they just do an disappearing act It’s really no big deal Well, I hate to tell you this but you
were a real serious, nervous
wreck last night weren’t you poor? Well, his prelim is this week, so I
have to worry about whether
or not he’ll be there Oh, purely professional
concern, I understand You know, Joy I don’t want to be rude
but I do have some work to do Oh, no problem honey bunny I’ll see you later Lindsay, good morning honey bunny Hi, I’m here to drop off Lindsay Rule Thank you um, you know what,
I can walk from here You know honey I’m sorry I can’t be with
you but I gotta make sure that all the i’s
are dotted and the t’s are crossed on your deal It’s fine, really Oh, Honey you tell them they can take your
measurements but I wanna eyeball everything
before you step foot in front of that camera Ok? Bye, bye Hey, Lindsay hi Oh, hey Eric
How’re you doing? You look great Listen I’d love to talk to you
right now but I’ve got
an appointment in wardrobe Wardrobe, you’re doing a movie? TV series That’s great, congratulations Yeah, wow I hope some of your
good luck rubs off on me I just had a meeting on my script What happened to
your movie in Toronto? Oh, well I’ve decided that I’m not gonna work
for my parents any more, you know
I’m trying to do it on my own this time Good luck.
Thanks So eh, that’s great. I’ll be,
I’ll be out there you know in
Malibu house sitting and em, when you’re finished in wardrobe,
do you wanna have lunch with me? I told you I wasn’t
interested in dating you Come on lunch outside
at the conservatory in the daytime, in the light,
lots of people that’s
definitely not a date Look Eric maybe you are like the sweet
straightheaded guy that you say you
are and not the devious snake that I think but even if you are I have
to concentrate on other
things right now, ok? Eric, where have you
been keeping yourself?
Hello, how are ye? em, eh, Just been around busy So if you would testify it would
at least be circumstantial
evidence of her innocence Would you care for some? No thank you I understand if this is awkard
because of your family That’s not really it Look give me my lines and I
deliver whatever you want I don’t understand Not much to understand I look … and it would kill me to
see her go to prison So I’m lying for her
if that’s what it takes But I never had the conversation
she said she had with me I see. Well, I’m sorry to
have bothered you.
I’ll let you get back to work Thank you for your time.
Good luck Ms. Quinn … Thank you. It’s terrific … I really like it,
it’s good with your hair and everything. Ok let me see You know back in the Stone Age
when I first started here,
the actresses were this big around Oh, well I’ve been working out
real hard and by the time we
start I should be an inch thinner Ok, real? Oh, yeah
Well, thank your lucky stars The girl I had just in here before
you she had a silicon job,
they started to leak Excuse me Yeah Yeah, she’s still here Ok That’s it then You’re finished? Yeah, that was the network

you to the door and get you off the lot immediately You’re fired sweetie What the hell are you doing here? You didn’t keep your part
of the bargain honey bunny I got a call that my sister is out
off the show and that
makes me very angry Well, I’ve got my own problems
so get your junk of my car You know I thought we
could’ve had something together You have got to be kidding Fine Read it in your cards Scott
I’m not saying how and
I’ m not saying when but you’re going to be very very
sorry for not keeping your promise Look at this, what is this? I don’t know, junk! This is from my office,
my ex-office. I got canned thanks to you,
so get out of here with your stupid cards Thanks to me? Yes, I got fired as vice-president
of this network for hiring
your no talent sister they thought she was my bimbo and the hypocrital sanctimonious
GASBAG I used to work for informed me that in this reactionary moral
climate he could not defend my making
a major business decision with my crutch Well, did you tell him that you
weren’t sleeping with Lindsay?
Oh, well did he believe me? Well, let her audition for him,
than you’ll see how good she is Look, this is over this is not Meryl Streep we’re talking
about this is a green, inexperienced kid and it’s going to take more than
a blackmailing, Machiavellian,
obsessive fat sister to make her a star get your junk of my car, I’ve got
some business to take care off Like what? Like finding a beautiful woman,
partying all night long
and never seeing you again Fat chance, Scotty Elllie go away! Ellie, Ellie! Ellie I’m sorry. Guess, must be your
animal magnetisme, he? You ok? Not great You wanna talk about it? You seem to be everywhere Believe me I’m not some weirdo I’m not trying to
follow you around I’m watching my parent’s
house while they’re out scouting locations For the movie you fired me off I didn’t fire you Besides, I think it worked
out great, now you can
do your series, right? What series? What happened? They fired me before I even started Joy said it had something to do
with something political that
had nothing to do with me but it sure feels like it does Well, it looks like I might be getting
the money for my movie Good for you, congratulations Thank you And there’s a part in there, that
I’ve been thinking about you for they have to understand this
is a very low budget thing
but it’d be a really big role for you Great, but I think I’am
gonna pass anyway Well, how can you pass,
you didn’t even read it Yeah, but I’ve already seen the movie The Lindsay, Eric movie, where
you give me the part on Monday
and then take it away on Tuesday First of all I’m not giving you anything
ok, I want you to read for it and then
if you’re right then it’s yours What’s it about? Well, at the risk of sounding
incredibly pretentious I’m trying to make a movie
as honest but not exploitive about lives of the homeless
people here in the city Free to blaze over.
I’m not blazing over Look I, I’d like you to read it because
I write much better than I talk Ok Defendant will be released on his own
recognizance, preliminary hearing on
the 22nd at 9am in department 1.37 People versus Jade O’Keeffe Attorney Perry Quinn representing
the defendant your honour We’ve reading of the complaints
So have we How do you plead Ms O’Keeffe? Innocent The defendant would
request a jury trial.
So ordered and in the matter of bail.
The D.A.’s office
categorically opposes bail seeing as the defendant has no
prior felony criminal record
it has significant. NO BAIL! Your honour.
This is a potential capital case no bail! Judge Schaeffer with all due respect
there are no special circumstances
to warrant that here Step back Ms. Quinn. The defendant
will remain in custody pending the trial Preliminary hearing on the
22nd at 9am in department 1.41 People versus Albion The judge said capital case, are
we talking about the death penalty? I wouldn’t worry about it.
You also told me not to
worry about getting bail I’m sorry about that,
I wasn’t expecting it Great that gives me a tremendous
feeling of confidence in you Yeah? Well I could say the
same thing about you You know, your story isn’t
holding together, Jade I went to your attorney friend,
he said you never even went to
him about the murder That’s impossible, I had.
Don’t, Don’t Like I told you before if you
chose to testify I can’t let you,
if I know you’re lying Oh, I see but you can let me
testify if you just think I’m lying I know it’s crazy
but that’s the game Ok, and if we’re gonna get honest to you
let me tell you it’s not gonna be
so easy to put you in front of a jury And why is that? You’re a prostitute, Jade That doesn’t mean I’m a liar The police say that they have
an eyewitness someone who says they saw
the deceased go into your house I told you she was there and heard her scream that could’ve been me or,
or him when I shot him and saw you drag a large body
shaped object wrapped in
a sheet out to the beach This is ridiculous. Who is this witness?
They’re claiming that it’s
a confidential reliable informant Of course it is Now we have a hearing to compell
them to disclose his or hers
identity but until then Do you have any ideas who it might be?
Of course I don’t have any ideas.
How could I? I told you I’m innocent.
Or didn’t you hear me? Unfortunately for the both of us
it isn’t the first time that I have And what’s that supposed to mean? Let me be crassly for a minute I don’t think that I’ve had a client,
not one who hasn’t
claimed to be innocent and now you’re supposed to ask:
and how many were? Maybe not even one This isn’t working Well, you said you didn’t want me
handholding you just wanted
me to do my job And your job is to get me off.
My job is to be hardheaded and realistic
enough to get you
the best result I can Now I can go to the D.A.’s office
and talk to them about a
plea bargain if you want You want me to plead guilty With luck to voluntary manslaughter 7 years you could be out in 3 and a half.
I don’t believe I’m hearing this.
I’m innocent Allright, you say so I’ll do some further investigation No don’t do anymore investigating I’m gonna get another attorney
You can send me the bill Guard! What are you reading? Oh, hi You remember Eric Adler? Yeah That low life creep who fired you? Well, he gave me this script,
that he’s gonna direct Where did you see this Eric person? On the beach You should read it,
it’s really good My sister the film critic and story
analist gives the screenplay
two thumbs up or perhaps that’s not the particular
part of your anatomy
that’s communicating here Joy, don’t get sarcastic I’m sorry honey I’m just trying to protect you
from a new disappointment or maybe we misjudged him,
I mean he really seems very nice and this is a script that
really resonates for me Resonates? It resonates for you, does it? Look baby doll, do me a favor
don’t try and play a part
that’s out of your range How do you know it’s out of my range,
you haven’t even read it I’m not talking about acting I’m talking about life You’re the pretty one so let me be the smart one I don’t mean to be unkind it’s just
that you’re so sweet and trusting
that I feel like I have to take care of you and you don’t know what
men are like in this town they say they like you, that
you’re special, that you’re
the one they’re looking for and then once they had their
fun, they toss you away
like an old Kleenex Don’t get too much sun,
we don’t want you ruining
that beautiful hair complexion As Roger Tabor can’t get
near the phone so leave a
message at that beep Hi Roger, this is Perry again.
Where the hell are you?
I’m starting to worry Please call me.
Thanks, bye Hi. Hi.
Can I buy you a cup of coffee?
Sure Something weird is going on with O’Keeffe,
I’ve tried all we can to get a
ballistic’s report and I struck out I know I’ve trouble
getting the arrest report And something else, what’s with this
railroad job? I mean the judge didn’t
even let you discuss bail I’ve never seen her be so tough Why did they arraign her as
Jade O’Keeffe, I mean her
real name is Victoria Tremont But they didn’t even use the aka You’re right that is weird Let me ask you: is she related
to the real estate and
construction Termonts? Well when I asked her if her
family could put up bail. She
told me she didn’t have any family That’s too bad When are you gonna see her again? Not real soon if she can help it Why? She fired me What? Why? Sex discrimination, I don’t know Just out of curiosity. Why are
you being such a boy scout anyway? Let’s just say, I don’t like to
see anybody get a raw deal Really? My experience cops aren’t
usual so fair-minded Some are. I knew Mitch I was over at South Central
with him before I went to Malibu He used to talk about you When you were getting married He was a hell of a guy and a great cop I’m really sorry Thanks You’re doing ok? I’m fine, yeah.
I’ll better go If you need anything, anything … You mean, he hasn’t called in yet No Well, maybe something
happened to him No, that’s, eh just the way Roger is.
He takes off but he comes back Where does he go? You know I never asked him To get his head together, I guess You mean he does this a lot eh, the last girlfriend, the, the headcase
she used to come here a lot too, um Roger asked me not to
talk to her Well, I’m his lawyer Right Well, I’m surprised that
he hasn’t been fired It’s Malibu people are mellow and the guy that owns
the place likes him a lot Well, if he calls in could you
ask him to call me?
Sure, no problem Hey, good luck.
Thanks Knock, knock Hello I’m sorry to intrude on your privacy.
I’m just concerned about Jade I thought she’d be getting
out on bail Well, she’s being held without bail You mean until the trial? That can be months, even years
can’t you do anything about it? Well, not really she fired me She fired you? Are you kidding? Definitely her mistake well you have a
great lawyers tur with your
ascendant Leo and Sags’ Moon It must be Mercury’s wretched
rates screwing things up Lindsay too, she lost the part,
she had in the bag Really? Oh, I’m sorry I know how
excited you both were about that Well, like they say it’s not over
til the fat lady sings em, Perry I wanted to
apologize for yesterday I get pushy when I care about someone
and I become a pain in the butt I know your personal life
is none of my business.
It’s ok, I promise I just overreacted Well don’t we all with the dreaded
white chromosome people That’s just sort of my projection,
maybe you don’t No, well maybe I do I wave my right to remain silent and I
admit to be sitting here attached
willingly to the telephone I’m pretending that I’m not
waiting for him to call Well, why is this Roger
so inconsidered anyway? I’m not so sure that it is
even about Roger, I mean I don’t even really know him and … I just don’t understand how
a little phone call like this could
feel like it means life or death? The hidious abandonment monster
is out of his cage.
That’s what it is I mean it’s like all the
losses you’ve ever
felt in your past all stood up into the present, because God
help us all some guy that you dated
once, just isn’t picking up the phone It sounds like you know
what I’m talking about Yeah, I’ve waited by a lot of
phones in my time Did you ever just, just pick it
up to see if it’s out of order?
Put it down, put it down I didn’t know that
beautiful women did this too What don’t tell me that you
don’t even know that you’re beautiful? Right this minute what I’d
like, is just to know that I was sane What do I do to let go of this? I wish I knew My Venus is in Capricorn Square my
Moon, which means that romance is
not an ordinary bet I’m gonna win in So I just don’t play anymore It’s him, I can feel it Hello? Oh, eh, they moved a while ago No, I don’t, I don’t have the number Ok, bye There’s no time dimension
in the psychic room But he’ll call, I know he will Well, I gotta go honey bunny, I’ve got
a business meeting, see you later.
Cheers Bye Oh, Scott This is Jade O’Keeffe calling I need
to speak to Hal Lanford
it’s an emergency This is the answering service Have you tried his home?
Yes, I have
What about his car phone? Yes ma’am Has he picked up any
of the other messages? I really don’t know Well, when he calls in would you
please make sure he understands
it’s an emergency Yes ma’am.
Thank you This way You back again Miss Armani,
I thought your fancy lawyer
was gonna get you out of here Guess not Oh, I really got to apologize You know before, I just thought
you were a whore I didn’t know you were a
murdering whore Leave me alone They don’t like whores in this city
and for sure they don’t like
murdering whores I didn’t kill anyone Too bad, cause they’re gonna
fry your ass anyway They’re gonna fry it for sure
