l swear to God,

l'll kill you right there.

the nicest husband

in the whole world.



Oh, yeah, sure.

l'm sure he's terrific.



No, really.

l'm the luckiest girl...



to have found

such a wonderful husband.



l fell in love with him

the first time l met him.



[ Man On TV ] Long-lasting Energizer

batteries keep going--



Honey, can you pass me

the remote control, there ?



lt's right behind you.



[ Man On TV ]

Still going. Long-lasting Energizer--



Did Billy ever tell you

how we met ?



[ Machine Whirring ]



Oh, um, no, honey.

How did you two meet ?



Billy, you didn't

tell your mom how we met ?



You tell her.



Well. l was working

as a typist for the C.l.A.,



which is a special part

of the government.



And Billy is a top agent

with the C.l.A.



l'm sure you know that.

You're probably so proud of him.



Anyway, he has hundreds

of people working for him.



All the girls in the office

were always telling me...



how much they were

in love with their boss.



l had never seen him,

because l worked way down...



on the other side

of the building.



But one day, he comes

into the office, and l see him,



and l fell in love--

madly in love-- with him.



But, you know, l couldn't talk to him,

because l was just a typist, and--



He's the kindest, smartest,

most handsome guy there.



l mean, even the guys loved him.

They idolized him.



So, l just,

l just couldn't.



l didn't think he'd ever like me.

l was just a typist girl.



And, you know,

he was like, the king.



l mean, even the president

is so proud of him.



So, one day...



l walk into my office,



and there's this giant

bouquet of roses.



l was just like, my God,

what are those flowers on my desk ?



l thought maybe they had gotten

the wrong desk or something.



So, l go over

and l open the card.



There was

a little note attached.



And it said:

''Dear Wendy, l have been in love...



''with you for a year,

but l'm very shy.



''l didn't know how

to tell you before this.



''But l want you to know

that l really love you,



and l'd love to take you out

to dinner sometime.''



- And guess who it was signed by ?

- Who ?



- Honey, honey, hold on.

Watch this play, all right ?

- Billy.



lt was signed by Billy.

lt said, ''Love, Billy.''



Uh-huh. Watch this play,

all right ? Just watch this.

to kick his longest ever on grass.



No good 



Aah, goddamn it.

Goddamn it 



[ Groans ]



Thirty years,

l haven't missed a game.



They haven't won

the championship since     .



l missed that game,

'cause that's the day l had Billy.



Oh, l wish

l never had him.



l wouldn't have

missed that game.






Did you like

Buffalo too ?



Um, it's Billy Brown calling.



l'd like to bet

on the Super Bowl.



On Buffalo.



To win.









l'd like to put

      on it.



- Oh, $      

- Hold on one second.



That's too much, Billy 

You're gonna get in trouble 



Shut up.

l'm talking on the phone 



Come on, Scott.

Come on, Scott.



[ Sportscaster] Wood tries

to kick his longest ever on grass.



- [ Sportscaster ]

No good  Wide right.

- Oh, no. Fuck 



[ Man ]

Told you. You're gonna be in trouble.



- [ Billy ] Shut up 

- l told you.



[ Billy ]

l'm fucked.



- [ Man ] You're dead.

- l am fuckin' dead.



[ Man #  ]

Okay, the story goes like this.



One day,

this big asshole comes in,



he calls up a bet.



$      bet on Buffalo

to win the Super Bowl.



That's to win, okay ?



Now, l know what

you're thinking.



The story's hard

to believe, right ?



l mean, what kind

of an idiot would bet...



on Buffalo to win

a big game like that ?



lt's true,

l swear to God it happened.



l mean, this guy

was so out of touch...



he didn't even have the ten large

to cover his bet.



Hey, tell somebody

to turn up the heat.



So, Billy.



What happened was this bookie

got so sick...



of hearing everybody's excuses.



l mean, they're all the same,

you know ?



Everybody's got an excuse.



Anyway, this bookie got so sick

that he just had to throw up.



The only way he could make himself feel

better was to-- to do bad things.



[ Sighs ] To do very,

very bad things to the excuse maker.



And very, very bad things to the

excuse maker's mother and father.



So, what do you say ?



Why don't we give this story

a happy ending ?



l got an acquaintance,

a friend,



a very good friend of ours,

and he just got arrested.



Of course, he's innocent.



His arrest is

a goddamn injustice, a tragedy.



So, you, the asshole,



will confess to the crime

of which he is accused,



so as to free

the innocent man.



Now, if you fail...



to convince the court,



or if you refuse

to try to,



then very evil and very bad things

are gonna happen.



Very evil

and very bad things.



Oh, and, Billy.



lf Buffalo ever makes it back

to the Super Bowl,



bet against them.



Now, get the fuck

out of my sight.



[ Bailiff ]

All rise.



Mr. Brown,

based on your confession,



you are found guilty

as charged.



Therefore, it is the judgment

of this court...



that you are sentenced

to the maximum term.



Five years. No parole.



[ Gavel Bangs ]



- [ Gavel Bangs ]

This one is going to go in June.

You never even went out

First day

And my mother--

She had to drag me there.



And then when

l got into class...



that's when l saw her.



And l remember just...

staring at her.



And l started

thinking things.



l was very young, but l was

imagining kissing her...



and marrying her.



And l just thought

about her every day,



all the time.



And then schooltime

would go by fast.



And sometimes l would

see her in church.



And l hated church too.



And if l saw her in church,

it was good,



because then time

went by really fast.



Did she know

that you liked her ?






She would just--



She would just tell me

to stop staring at her all the time,



mocking me out.



''Take a picture.

Why don't ya ?''



Did you ever have

any other girlfriends ?






Just her.



[ Water Running ]



l'm gonna fill up the whole tub.



My father used to make us fill up the

tub just, like, an inch of hot water.



That's all we were

allowed to use.



He was so cheap.

- Why ?



Can l come and

sit in there with you ?



l don't wanna be

out here alone. l'm cold.

l'm gonna throw you out of the room.



All right, l promise

Don't look at me.



But l'm freezing, Billy.

Can l get a kiss good-bye ?



No. Don't start--




Don't start trouble.



Don't-- Don't--

Don't start evil.

l'd get you a hot chocolate, okay ?



So l'm gonna go.



Can l have a hug then ?



Oh, man. Come on.

'Cause you--



You've been

ls that why you're givin' me

all your stuff ?

This place is crazy.



Um, he seems like

He really is just like...

a normal guy.



You know, l think--



Remember, we used to like Wood.

He kicked good that season.



He was good

that whole season.



He kicked good all year.



He missed one measly field goal,

and everybody's against him.



l mean, the guy--

Who told me to bet on Buffalo ?



Buffalo stunk all year.

They gave the Giants that game.



Matter of fact, if it wasn't for

Wood, they would have lost three

or four other games that year.



What ?

l'm telling you the truth.



l'm here. No.



Anyway, listen,

l'll give you a call tomorrow.

[ Man ]

 She brings the sunshine 



[ Man ]

 She brings the sunshine 



 To a rainy afternoon 



 She puts the sweetness in 



 Stirs it with a spoon 



 She watches for my moods 



 Never brings me down 



 She puts the sweetness in

all around 



 She knows just what to say 



 To make me feel

so good inside 



 Side, side, side 



 And when l'm all alone 



 l feel l don't want to hide 












 Today she brought me in 



 Told me where she'd be 



 She put my mind at rest 



 Put the sweetness in 



 l'll ask her for some time 



 To go and look around 



 She puts the sweetness in 



 With a sound 



 She knows just what to say 



 To make a sunny day 



 Day, day, day 



 And when l'm all alone 



 l really don't feel that way 



 Tell me how would you feel 



 With no world of your own 



 And nobody to hold 



 l just can't see the way 



 l'm so glad it's today 



 And you're here 



 You're here
