O.J. Simpson: Now see, that’s not true! I was here all day. I was taking anap. No, no — I was chipping golf balls. No, no — I was packing! No, no– me and Kato went to McDonald’s. No, no — it was Arby’s! No, no — it was McDonald’s — I’m going to say McDonald’s!

Reporter #2: Mr. Simpson, did you just bury all your money in the backyard?

O.J. Simpson: Did I bury the money!?!? No way!! There are two things I’venever done – beat a woman and bury my money in the backyard. You know, Idon’t even have a shovel…

Reporter #2: Then what’s that?

O.J. Simpson: What?

Reporter #2: In your hand? Isn’t that a shovel?

O.J. Simpson: This is not a shovel! “Show me the money! Show me themoney!” Who saw that movie?

Reporter #3: And what’s that stuck to it? It looks like money.

O.J. Simpson: Yeah it is. It’s the only money I have left. I’m going to bedistributing this money to those who deserve it from the judgment againstme. But I stuck it on this shovel so I wouldn’t forget it.

Reporter #2: I thought you said you didn’t have a shovel.

[ O.J. murmurs NIGGER under his breath. ]

O.J. Simpson: Who said “nigger”? Why must this always be about race!?

Reporter #2: Sir, there are foot prints! Foot prints from Air Jordansleading to the backyard to where you are standing right now.

O.J. Simpson: Did somebody just call me a nigger? Look, I don’t own a pairof Air Jordan sneakers. Do you think I would own an ugly pair of shoeslike that anyway? Come on! It’s me! The Juice!!

Reporter #2: You’re wearing them! I’m looking at them right now!!

O.J. Simpson: Here we go again… Come on now!

[ A golden lab steps out of the front gate with a Ziploc bag full of cashfrom his mouth. He goes off into the distance. ]

O.J. Simpson: Come on! That dog’s got my money! And one other thing…
