A morally, and financially, bankrupt congressman must hire an the least expensive attorney he can find (an ethically astute attorney whose practice is on the rocks) to defend himself from being expelled from Congress.

SAUL opens the door to LISMAN.

SAUL

Congressman.

LISMAN

Good morning.

SAUL checks his watch.

SAUL
Yes. You too. Can I help you?

LISMAN

You can.

SAUL

How?

LISMAN
I think you already know.

SAUL
Representation?

LISMAN

Yes.

SAUL

Really?

LISMAN
That’s what you wanted wasn’t it?

SAUL
But you’re on my doorstep.

30.

LISMAN
Is that what this is?

SAUL
And -- I’m just --

LISMAN
Did you want me to go somewhere else?

SAUL
No! No, not at all. I’m just -- why did
you come to me?

LISMAN

I --

SAUL
Actually, I apologize Congressman. But
how did you know where I live?

LISMAN
You file taxes?

SAUL

Yes.

LISMAN
There’s no point in chairing Ways and
Means if you can’t pull some strings at
the IRS.

SAUL
It’s almost difficult to believe that
anyone would ever convict you of foul
play.

LISMAN
It is isn’t it?

SAUL
It is. My other question is why me?

LISMAN
You’re the only one who came to me. I
don’t have a whole lot of time, and
judging from your past case-work, and
current clients, or lack thereof, you
need me and I need you.
(beat)
Not in a gay way.

SAUL
That’s the way I took it.

31.

LISMAN

The gay way?

SAUL
The other way.

LISMAN
Just making sure.
(beat)
I’m not a homosexual.

SAUL
I didn’t think so.

LISMAN
So when should we start?

SAUL
Your representation?

LISMAN
Our French kiss.
(off SAUL)
Yes, my representation.

SAUL
Whenever you’d like.

LISMAN

How about now?

SAUL

(beat)

Now?

LISMAN

Yeah.

SAUL
(to Laura)

Honey?

LAURA (O.S.)

Yeah.

SAUL
We’re going to need some coffee.
