A 40's lawyer is standing above a table with an injured man on it. The way the injury has been afflicted on this man is unclear, but he is in a tremendous amount of pain. The lawyer, a highly intelligent but very nervous man, is named Thomas. The injured man is a client of his. His name is Bruce.

Thomas (cont'd)

That was a tv show so I can see why that wouldn't work.

Bruce

You have to know something about this. You couldn't have gone through your entire education without learning some kind of shit like this, right>

Thomas

Look, if this was about criminal law in any way, I'm your man. But I didn't have the stomach to become a doctor. I fainted dissecting frogs.

Bruce

This is a little different, eh? Why hasn't the ambulance called us back already?

timj124 - on 05/27/2014

Thomas

I don't know. You know they're going to ask how this happened.

timj124 - on 05/27/2014

Bruce

And I'll tell them. My lawyer shot me with an old, supposedly unloaded gun. They'l love that story.

timj124 - on 05/27/2014

Thomas

Could we maybe say that you pulled the trigger? I mean, it was an accident and I have a lot to lose if people think that I... well, shot someone. People don't look kindly on that.

timj124 - on 05/27/2014

Bruce

What? You want me to blame this on myself? AAAHHH! Why would I do that?

timj124 - on 05/27/2014

The phone rings as Thomas is thinking of what to say. Thomas picks up the phone and begins to talk.

Thomas (CONT'D)

Hello? Oh thank god. Yes. A client on mine, picked up a gun that was on my desk and shot himself in the big toe. He seems to be fine thus far, but I don't think I can help him much longer.
