Ted Crawford:
You know, my grandfather was an egg farmer.
Willy Beachum:
This isn't going to be about your, uh, "rough childhood," is it?
Ted Crawford:
No, I used to candle eggs at his farm. Do you know what that is? You hold an egg up to the light of a candle and you look for imperfections. The first time I did it he told me to put all the eggs that were cracked or flawed into a bucket for the bakery. And he came back an hour later, and there were 300 eggs in the bakery bucket. He asked me what the hell I was doing. I found a flaw in every single one of them - you know, thin places in the shell; fine, hairline cracks. You look closely enough, you'll find that everything has a weak spot where it can break, sooner or later.
Willy Beachum:
You looking for mine?
Ted Crawford:
I've already found yours.
Willy Beachum:
What is it?
Ted Crawford:
You're a winner, Willy.
Willy Beachum:
Yeah.
[chuckles nervously]

Willy Beachum:
Well, I guess the joke's on me then, isn't it?
Ted Crawford:
[grinning]
You bet your ass, old sport.

You know, my grandfather was an egg farmer.
This isn't gonna be about
your rough childhood, is it?
No, I used to candle eggs at his farm.
Do you know what that is?
You hold an egg up to
the light of a candle
and you look for imperfections.
First time I did it...
he told me to put all the eggs
that were cracked or flawed
into a bucket for the bakery.
And he came back an hour later...
and there were 300 eggs in the bakery bucket.
He asked me what the hell I was doing.
I found a flaw in every single one of them.
You know, thin places in the shell...
and fine hairline cracks.
You look closely enough,
you'll find everything has a weak spot...
where it can break, sooner or later.
You looking for mine?
I've already found yours.
What is it?
You're a winner, Willy.
Yeah. Well, I guess the
joke's on me, then, isn't it?
You bet your ass, old sport.
- What time was that?
- About 5:00.
Then she went into the house.
Prior to that, had you seen Mr.
Crawford arrive at the house?
- Yes.
- When was that?
Earlier than usual.
Maybe 4:00.
Did Mr. Crawford park in the carport?
No, he always parks in the garage.
He's very careful with his car.
Would you say that Mr. Crawford
was a very careful man?
Oh, yes.
Always.
Thank you.
No further questions, Your Honor.
Mr. Crawford.
Yes, Your Honor?
Uh... Hello, Ciro.
