Jack: I didn't lay a hand on him, G*[email protected] it. I didn't. I wouldn't touch one hair of his g*[email protected] little head. I love the little son-of-a-b!*ch! I'd do anything for him. Any f#@kin' thing for him. But that b!*ch. As long as I live she'll never let me forget what happened! So I did hurt him once, okay? It was an accident, completely unintentional. Coulda happened to anybody. And it was three g*[email protected] years ago! The little f#@ker had thrown all my papers all over the floor. All I tried to do was to pull him up! A momentary loss of muscular coordination, hmm? A few extra foot pounds of energy, per second... per second.
