My private investigator

Ted Crawford:
My dick, my private investigator. I call him Dick. Perhaps I should call him as a rebuttal witness, because since the tragedy, um, he's dug up hotel records and witnesses that confirm that my wife and Mr Nunally were having an affair. My dick is good.
Willy Beachum:
Your Honour, so what if he was?
Judge Robinson:
Mr Beachum.
Willy Beachum:
Even if he was...
Judge Robinson:
Your witness was intimate with the victim and assaulted the defendant during the arrest.
Ted Crawford:
Actually, while trying to obtain my so-called confession.
Judge Robinson:
Yes.
Willy Beachum:
Oh, come on.
Ted Crawford:
Is that a legal argument, "Oh, come on"?
Willy Beachum:
Don't make me come across this table cos I will...
Ted Crawford:
I just want...
Willy Beachum:
Your Honour, he dictated and signed his confession at the station long after the incident, all right?
Ted Crawford:
In fear for my life, since my wife's lover who had just beaten me, was in the room with his friends, and the other officers.
Judge Robinson:
Was Detective Nunally present during Mr Crawford's interrogation?
Willy Beachum:
Uh... he... he... he may have been, I don't know.
Judge Robinson:
Because if that is indeed the case, the confessions, both of them, are out. If Nunally was there, Mr Crawford was under duress. The confessions and any evidence gathered while Mr Nunally was present will all have to be excluded as "fruit of the poisonous tree."
Willy Beachum:
This... This is insane.
Ted Crawford:
That's the Bible, isn't it? The fruit of the tree and all that? It's Matthew. Or is it Mark?
Willy Beachum:
He set all this up. This is a setup.
Judge Robinson:
I'm sorry, Mr Beachum, but I am not going to allow coerced confessions in my courtroom.
Ted Crawford:
Your Honour, do you think I could go home now, with Thanksgiving around the corner?
Willy Beachum:
Unbelievable.
Judge Robinson:
Don't push it, Mr Crawford.
Judge Robinson:
What I want to do is I'm going to give Mr Beachum a few days to come up with some new evidence, and if he can't then maybe you can go home. So we will reconvene on Monday morning. I think that's all.
Ted Crawford:
Thank you, Your Honour.

Transcript:
My dick has evidence.
- Excuse me?
- My dick, my private investigator.
I call him dick. Perhaps I should call him
as a rebuttal witness.
Because since the tragedy, he's dug up
hotel records and witnesses...
that confirm that my wife
and Mr. Nunally were having an affair.
- My dick is good.
- Your Honor, so, what if he was?
- Mr. Beachum.
- Even if he was--
Your witness was intimate with the victim...
and assaulted the defendant
during the arrest.
Actually, while trying to obtain
my so-called confession.
- Yes.
- Oh, come on.
Is that a legal argument, "Oh, come on"?
Don't make me come across
this table because I will--
Your Honor, he dictated
and signed his confession
at the station long after
the incident, all right?
In fear for my life,
since my wife's lover...
who had just beaten me,
was in the room with his friends...
and the other officers.
Was Detective Nunally present
during Mr. Crawford's interrogation?
He may have been, I don't know.
Because if that is indeed the case,
the confessions, both of them, are out.
If Nunally was there,
Mr. Crawford was under duress.
The confessions and any evidence
gathered with Nunally present...
will have to be excluded
as fruit of the poisonous tree.
- This is insane.
- That's the Bible, isn't it?
"The fruit of the tree" and all that?
It's Matthew. Or is it Mark?
He set all this up.
- This is a setup.
- I'm sorry, Mr. Beachum...
but I am not going to allow
coerced confessions in my courtroom.
Your Honor, do you think
I could go home now
- with Thanksgiving around the corner?
- Unbelievable.
Don't push it, Mr. Crawford.
What I'll do is I'm going to give
Mr. Beachum a few days...
to come up with
some new evidence.
And if he can't, then
maybe you can go home.
So we will reconvene on Monday morning.
- I think that is all.
- Thank you, Your Honor.
Farewell.
Didn't even have the guts to come talk to me.
I was going to...
after I figured out...
how I was gonna handle it.
What makes you think that's your decision?
- You taking me off this case?
- Your bags are already packed.
Just go.
Even if I find new evidence?
From where? The evidence store?
What, are they open early
the day after Thanksgiving?
My witness lied to me.
Yes, because he could.
Because you weren't looking.
And I know why.
Your head was in the fast
lane on your big salary.
You picked that and what we
do is not important anymore.
So that's what this is about, isn't it?
- I'm not gonna be like you in 20 years.
- Hey, you be very careful.
You wanna judge me, be my guest...
but this thing was a setup.
The confession, everything.
Maybe.
But it didn't have to turn into
a public humiliation for this office.
You walked in there unprepared.
You were arrogant and sloppy,
and you did damage.
How much, we don't even know yet.
And I noticed you didn't even care to ask.
But don't worry yourself, Willy.
We'll clean up after you.
Coming around...
Yeah.
- Hey, what can I get you?
- Bourbon.
All right.
So...
you got killed today.
You gotta admire the cleverness of it.
Oh, yeah?
Sure, give the devil his due.
So, what did Lobruto say?
He took me off the case.
Good.
- Is it?
- Yeah.
Damage control.
Look, you don't know this guy.
I had to fight with Burt today...
to stop him from firing you.
You want this, right?
Yeah.
Good.
