When Stone is approached by Sarah Kent in a bar. When she asks "You don't remember me, do you?" And Stone replies with a smile and giggle. Sarah Kent then slaps him. Well that was what was supposed to happen. Instead you see Sarah's hand raise, the subtitles state (BLOW LANDS), but you can plainly see that Sarah's hand never actually hits Stone's face. Instead you just see him move his face away, appearing shocked at being slapped. See more »


Leanne Rose: I was in awe of you. Between that rising fastball, your curveball, your changeup, and the fact that you could swing a bat, too. I mean, for a pitcher.
Peter Stone: [sarcastic, with an amused laugh] Oh, gee, thanks.

User Reviews

They who speaks first
19 May 2020 | by CDM_moviereviewerSee all my reviews

This episode is telling people that as long as you speak first, you will be believed without skepticism. After all, who wants to go through the ordeal of telling 'their story' over and over again? Who wants to tell the world that they were 'weak' in the face of circumstance and power over not power with? And if the nature of the crime is heinous enough, then that alone in itself is proof that the preyed upon, the victimized is telling the truth, with all other additional information void, insignificant and certainly nonprobative.
