The Transcript For This Page
Nicole's visit with Bustamante continues.
Bustamante: So, regarding your case: I think we can knock down the resisting arrest and assault charges pretty easily, since the cops over-reacted.
Cut to another room where a couple of guards are recording/listening to the conversation.
Bustamante: The claim is that while resisting arrest you tagged one of the cops on the nose. But there's no record of her needing treatment for any injury, and ... do you remember any of this?
Nicole and Bustamante.
Nicole: I just remember being stopped for using a Bubb where I shouldn't have.
Bustamante: Traumatic stress amnesia. Probably a blessing -- you were beaten badly enough to require three days in the medi-vat.
Nicole and Bustamante.
Nicole: Three days! Are you serious?
Bustamante: Yes. Well, moving on ...
Bustamante: The more serious charge against you is possession of 'cheez.'
Close-up on Nicole, looking perplexed.
Nicole: What? Cheese is illegal here? They serve cheese omelets at my hotel.
Bustamante (OP): Um ...
Close-up on Bustamante, looking like he's not quite sure if Nicole is kidding.
Bustamante: 'Cheez,' with a 'z,' is the street name for N-methyl-1-phenylpropan-2-amine combined with diacetylmorphine hydrochloride, processed into a yellow-white substance resembling grated parmesan cheese. Hence the name.
Looking past Bustamante at Nicole, still looking perplexed.
Bustamante: The idea is to combine a stimulant with a depressant to create a euphoric effect.
Bustamante: But it also causes incoherence, hallucinations, and sometimes death.
Nicole and Buford.
Nicole: Why in the hell would anyone do something like that to themselves?
Bustamante: You tell me. The cops found some in your fanny pack.
