Liam maintains it’s important for him to go to the authorities. Bill hollers at him to please explain the allure of prison life. He tells Liam the car is also taken care of, and adds, “All you have to do is…” Liam snaps, “Pretend it never happened.” He can’t just forget that a person was walking down the street and is dead because of him! Bill points out it will haunt him whether he’s behind bars or walking around free. He suggests he take door number two — the walking around free option. Liam’s convinced the police will figure it out. Bill pulls out a news report on the hit-and-run that says there are no leads. He tells Liam there won’t be any… because of him. Liam flails his arms as he argues that they will find tire tracks and complains about him leaving Vinny on the side of the road. Bill exclaims that he was dead; was he supposed to send out invitations to a wake?
Bill warns Liam B&B

Liam insists he’s going to the police and makes a move toward the door but Bill blocks his way. “You are not going to the police!” Bill rants loudly that the cops aren’t going to thank him for reporting his ‘boo-boo’ and send him on his way. Liam thinks they can say they thought they hit an animal and turn themselves in. He wails that the truth always comes out. “I have to go to the police! I have to do it!” They argue some more until Bill roars that they have to stay quiet, that’s the way it has to be!
