"Remember in L.A.: Hope's a dead-end street." - Tony Nersesian
The chapter opens up on May 10, 2014 at 11:11:12 in Los Angeles, California. Shnorhk, a taxi driver, is currently in court for allegedly running a red light and crashing into a police officer. Shnorhk claims to be innocent but nobody believes him. He is waiting for his witness, Dwight Plaguer, to arrive to defend him. The officer in question, Grady Vennerød, insists Shnorhk is guilty. Shnorhk tries to defend himself by suggesting Vennerød was actually the one who ran the red light and crashed into him.
Shnorhk has Dwight's phone number written on his palm in sharpie, despite his wife Patil and her friend Zanazan both warning him it would be a bad idea to save the number that way. They were right, as the number had faded, but luckily Shnorhk memorized the phone number. Shnorhk exits the courtroom and walks into the hallway so he can call Dwight. When Dwight answers the phone, he tells Shnorhk that he will not be able to make it to the courthouse. He comes up with a fake excuse that Shnorhk is able to see through, but still Dwight says he will not be coming.
After Dwight hangs up the phone, Shnorhk finds himself fighting back tears and coughing violently in the hallway. When his lawyer approaches him, he urges Shnorhk to tell the truth. Shnorhk continues to insist that he is already telling the truth and that he would like to counter-sue Vennerød. His lawyer still does not believe him. When Shnorhk exits the courthouse, he begins coughing again. His lawyer advises him to see a doctor.
