9-1-1 hello Scranton strangler is in the house inside the house

Just put it in your pocket

Hi guys hi

I just wanted to let you know that I'll be taking a leave of absence starting next week

because you've been on the lam

Because the boring police have been after you and they finally caught up with you

no the opposite

I was actually selected to be a juror on a very high-profile case

yes the case of the horrible

Redheaded sad-sack and the verdict: It was Toby and the sentence death. death to Toby

Death toToby. Oh, that's hurtful. Talk. We've talked about that

You know what I dont interrupt your announce so-

you leave these huge pauses in your sentences. what expect me to do?

What's the case Toby?

well I really can't talk about, but it's a very high-profile case

That was the worst joke

Every day millions of Americans suffer from extreme repulsiveness someone in our myths is bringing that problem to light

toby flenderson

Please come up here and at the extreme repulsiveness award. Oh, that's so mean...

You gotta play along man

Here he comes

All right, you deserved it.

I really disagree with this I

Think it's kind of hateful although

I am a little happy right now to have a platform to talk about the outcome of a case that I was recently a juror

On the Scranton strangler a man's being put to death I was part of the verdict, and I'm not so sure he's guilty

Those figures I gave you they're false


I was mad at Kevin we had a fight and I acted vindictively

So I guess setup?

Yes, he's innocent

I knew it. I knew it from the beginning this was a possibility. What are you talking about? I just did this now

a few years ago

When I was on the jury the Scranton structure

How sorry might have been set up, but I felt pressure to convict.

It's gotta be tough

tough, I put an innocent man on death row

I'm going to the prison

This afternoon I'm gonna talk to his strangler

Probably best to use his ro name rather than strangler

don't use his real name

george howard skub?

It's a devil name

. Anyway. Just wanna say. I'm doing it. I'm going

He's doing it

Hi, im toby flenderson here to see george howard skub. This is the prison

I am NOT going in there with

expectations per se

I will meet george howard skub. I will tell him that I believe he is innocent

I don't understand if he felt motivated to hug me I

Would understand if a friendship began not it had a boggart put it. I think this is a start of my first friendship

Well the good news is no more guilty conscience. least you know he is the strangler

The proof is in the grip did they say when the vocal cords would heal?

One week

Okay two weeks


You offered your neck in search of the truth

The proud neck of justice isn't about the expression anyway. It was it was very brave

It really was quite brave
