Travis and Babydoll plow through the crowded main corridor of the courthouse.
A guy who does not look ready for court (wearing shorts and a t-shirt) chases after Marcus. Guy can tell he's a lawyer cuz he's in a suit.
"I got a high profile case and I just fired my lawyer!" says the guy. "Wanna represent me?!"
"I'm a public defender man. I'm free. You just gotta sign up."
"No thanks, know what I'm saying. No thanks!"
Defendant keeps moving, laughing. Marcus like "too bad."
Everyone wears cheap suits, synthetic separates. No one's clothes fit right. No one has good posture. It's like the courthouse florescent light sucks something out of your soul.
Witchlike assistant District Attorney NANCY HOLLY, white, 38, stands with her arms folded in the the commotion. Backlit. Brow raised.
"Well well well, if it ain't the boy wonder," says Nancy. "And he’s got a little friend." She's arch and over the top and self-consciously corny.
Marcus turns to Babydoll theatrically. "Babydoll, this what’s known as a prosecutor. Know who was the first prosecutor? Satan. He was god’s prosecutor. And Jesus was the first defendant."
Nancy raises one eyebrow. "I'll thank you not to insult my faith."
"Historical fact. Jesus had to come and stand in the way of the accusation of us all - and die for our sins."
"Our lord would have qualified for a public defender," says Babydoll.
"Yes he would Babydoll." Marcus gestures to Babydoll to keep moving and calls back to Nancy. "See you in court, Lady Satan."
