Mr District Attorney and the Intimidated Jury, (scene 7):
The heat is on, but Stanley is totally unaware of it. Boy, does this kid ever need to wake up and smell the coffee!
This one’s on the house!
Two episodes ago, Mr. Stanley, the hitman, killed jury foreman, Mr. Taylor, for Mr. Butler. Taylor was being charged with jury tampering, so he had come to Butler (the kingpin who was really behind the jury rigging) seeking protection. When Butler seemed not to care, Taylor had pointed out that he too was in danger of being found out. Butler saw that Taylor would easily give him up to the D.A. to save himself, so Taylor had become a threat. Stanley owed him a favor, so he had Stanley get rid of Taylor for him. Stanley dealt with Taylor swiftly with one quick shot, but Stanley’s job wasn’t finished yet. He still had a corpse to get rid of.
Dumping the stiff:
In this episode, Stanley comes back and tells Butler how that went. While trying to get rid of the body, he’d run into some trouble. He admits it was a bit of a screwed up, but he figures he took care of it. He’s eager to tell his exciting story.
The heat is on!
When Butler hears the story, he sees it as a much bigger problem than Stanley perceives it to be. How could Stanley have been so stupid? He only thinks one step ahead. He’d never win at a game of chess! Butler has to spell it out very clearly to Stanley… Because of his way of dealing with the little screw up, the heat is on. He gives Stanley a piece of advice that Stanley doesn’t want to hear.
