Lewis questions Tyrrell about using his credit card. Tyrrell tells Lewis that Riggs was moving out of his mother's house and he needed to store his stuff somewhere. "With my credit card," Lewis says. "We paid cash, it was just for the security deposit," Tyrrell says. Lewis asks when he knew Riggs was stealing. "I told you, not until the last one," Tyrrell tells him. "Don't lie to me," Lewis says. "I'm not lying," Tyrrell says. "So, Riggs was lying to you? The whole story about moving out of his mom's house, storing his stuff, he was lying to you," Lewis insists. Tyrrell won't admit that Riggs lied to him and Lewis tells him that either Riggs lied to him then or Tyrrell is lying to him now. Tyrrell tells him that he didn't start to suspect anything until this last time. "So it was really only the last one he brought you in on?" Lewis asks, raising his voice. "Yes," Tyrrell says. "The rest he did himself?" Lewis persists. "Yes," Tyrrell says. Lewis asks, "You want to spend the next three years of your life in jail? You think Riggs wants to? Because right now he's telling the police exactly what you're telling me, only he's reversing the names." Tyrrell tells Lewis he wouldn't do that. "Really? Your friend Riggs made bail. He's out. Why hasn't he come to see you?" Lewis asks. "I don't know," Tyrrell says, slumping in a chair. "How do you think he made bail? He's selling off the stuff you stole." Tyrrell shakes his head, crying, as Lewis continues, "Why do you think he split off the case, Tyrrell? He's turning on you. Are you so stupid you can't see it?" "I'm not stupid!" Tyrrell screams. "Yes, you are!" Lewis shouts back, "you are stupid, because even if you plead this out, man, best case scenario, you are looking at six months to a year in jail. There goes your track scholarship, there goes college. Now think about your family. Is it fair that they're going to have to spend every night worrying about you in jail? Do you want people talking about them at church? Do you want people to pity them?" Tyrrell shakes his head: "I didn't mean for it to get like this." "But it did," Lewis tells him, "and it's ruined everything, not just for you but for everyone around you. And you complain that I'm not here for you. Right now I'm supposed to be at the Supreme Court doing the job I spent seven years getting but instead I'm here cleaning up your mistakes. So don't tell me it's not fair. Do the right thing. Turn Riggs in." Tyrrell lifts a tear-stained face and looks at his cousin, "Okay." Lewis walks into the kitchen and tells Audra, "It's done," and walks out.
