Bob Shapiro: “I’m so sorry that I’m late. But I have something considerable to offer. I’ve been doing some research at the office about precedent and about possible options. I think….(he sits down) that we should cut a deal. We should go for manslaughter. What we say is that you were mad at Nicole for not inviting you to dinner at Mezzaluna. You go home, you brood. What to do? So you decide to get even with her. So you take a knife to her place to slash her tires but you get caught and you’re humiliated. You….you-you don’t know what to do. Your - your heart is racing, your emotions are cracking, and before you know it, things escalate and you kill her. And you kill the Goldman boy too, because you’re jealous.”
