Write what? (CHUCKLES) I don’t know, a book. Ah, it sounds stupid. No, it doesn’t sound stupid. It may not be any good, but I.I, um. .this is just the opening. Do you wanna hear it? Yeah, I’d love to hear it. “Up until December th, ,” “I spent the entirety of my life.” “.in awe of my father.” “I judged every accomplishment,” “.every failure, professionally or personally,” “.against the life he lived.” “His approval meant everything,” “.maybe too much,” “.and for as long as I can remember,” “I worked as hard as I could to make him proud.” “And then one day,” “I found out that my father was not the man I thought.” “He was a criminal, a man I didn’t respect.” “And yet this man, my father,” “.is the same man who taught me right from wrong,” “.taught me to be fair and decent and honest,” “.taught me about the importance of character,” “.what it means to be a husband,” “.and, most importantly, how to be a father.” “I am the son of Bernie Madoff.” “I used to think that I could never escape that.” “Now I’m certain I won’t.” “Why is it so hard to believe.” “.that those closest to him wouldn’t see him as a criminal?” “Why is it so hard to believe that his son.” “.would think his father could do no wrong?” “When I look at my youngest son, Nick,” “I fear the day when he’s old enough to ask.” “.what his grandfather was like.” “What kind of man was he?” “If I tell him he was evil,” “.how can I explain that I’m”. (CRYING) “.that I”. It’s good, Mark. It’s really good. Yeah, I.I don’t know. (HELICOPTER BLADES WHIRRING) CATHERINE: So, is it a plea deal? MARTIN: No. He’s just pleading guilty. MARK: So, he’s just gonna plead guilty. .to all the charges and that’s it? It looks that way. So there will be no trial? No. MARK: Have you read what they’re saying about us? Every day they’re calling for our head. .every paper, every blog. How are those people gonna know we’re innocent .if there’s no trial? How?! How? The sooner he is locked up. Bullshit. This will be over. It’s gonna linger. The questions, the suspicions, .the paparazzi camped out. Are they not charging him with conspiracy? No, he won’t plead guilty to conspiracy. REPORTER: Mr. Madoff, are you going to plead guilty? MARK: They should charge him anyway and force a trial. ANDY: If they took Dad to trial, what would happen? Just think about it, Mark. You’re talking about putting the richest. .and most powerful people in the world up on that stand. You’re talking about JP Morgan, Chase, HSBC, Swiss Banks. You’re talking about the world’s financial system on trial. Now, I’m not a conspiracy theorist, .but trust me, that will never happen. Ever. So, no, .there won’t be a trial. The public won’t know the truth. And we’ll be left to fend for ourselves. STEPHANIE: I don’t understand, Mark. Do you want a trial? No. Well, what do you want? (SCOFFS) I want my life back. (PHONE RINGING) STEPHANIE’S:(VOICE) We’re not here. Leave a message. (MACHINE BEEPS) Mom again. RUTH: Hi, it’s me again. (SNIFFLES) Your mother. I don’t know why I’m calling. I feel like such a moron. .leaving all these messages,
