Bill: So listen…I heard about the whole thing with your brother, and I was in the neighborhood, and I just thought I’d come down and just talk to you a little bit in case I could be helpful. But I don’t want you to feel nervous, this is totally unofficial, OK? You know what? Don’t even say OK. Just listen to me: Now I understand he’s possibly putting you in a very bad position. – Please! Don’t say anything. Just listen for a second. I just want to say that I don’t know if you were really with him the other night or not, and I don’t want to know. It’s not my case, it’s not my problem. Now, I’m sure you hear what happened to that nurse, so I’m not gonna go into that, but we’re talking about a twenty-seven-year-old single mother, three children. OK? And I just want to say, if you were not with him last night, you’re gonna need to talk to somebody. And I want you to know I’m available any time of the night or day. OK?
