The scene opens with Nick pulling into the parking garage at the office. As he pulls up to his spot he is listening to talk radio about a case against “Black Betty” who allegedly killed a local star, her boyfriend, Dwayne with her other boyfriend and stole from him too. The radio says that she fired her attorneys again and is looking for a new one. Nick pulls up to his parking spot and finds a car in it. He double parks behind it and heads for the office. Minutes before he gets there Black Betty walks into the office. She directs Pete to get rid of the press and she goes in the back. Nick now walks in and is yelling about the parking. Pete follows him into the office and asks if he knows about the Black Betty case. Nick, very irritated now, says that he loved the musician that was killed and he won’t take the case. She hears Nick comments on his dismay and tells him at least he is honest and that he gets the case. Nick protests but she blows him off and yells that the money will be there in the morning. Nicks is still saying he won’t do it but Pete says he will do it alone...
