John:
You said, "Don't make something up unless it's sure to help"....how do you know I made it up?

Shelley:
Wha…what are you talking about?

John:
I told the customer his contract went to the bank.

Shelley:
[picks teeth] Well, hadn't it?

John:
No, it hadn't.

Shelley:
Don't f*** with me … don't f*** with me! What are you saying?

John:
Well, I'm saying this, Shell; usually I take the contracts to the bank. Last night I didn't. Last night I stayed home with my kids. One night in a year I left the contracts sitting on my desk, no one knew that but you. How did you know that? Do you wanna tell me, or do you want to talk to someone else? Because this is my job. This is my job on the line, and you are gonna talk to me. Now how did you know that contract was on my desk?

Shelley:
You are so full of sh*t.

John Williamson:
You robbed the office.

Shelley:
Oh sure, I robbed the office! Sure!!

John Williamson:
What did you do with the leads? You wanna go in there? I go in there and tell him what I know, he's gonna dig up something. You got an alibi last night? You better have one....what did you do with the leads?...If you tell me what you did with the leads, we can talk....If you tell me where the leads are, I won't turn you in. If you don't, I'm going to tell the cop you stole them. Mitch & Murray will see that you go to jail. Believe me, they will. Now what did you do with the leads? I'm walking in that door, you have five seconds to tell me, or you're going to jail. I don't care, you understand?! Where are the leads?
