If you are not shooting at the person, you are spraying bullets somewhere else. And weren't 2 kids there, also? So just fire off some shots in some direction so you can clip a neighbor, someone walking by, a passing car, have a ricochete and hit someone in the house. OK, it you are in the middle of the a forest, ocean or desert, feel free to put a shot into the ground, otherwise you are being reckless and a danger to others. And don't give me any bull about "putting a shot somewhere safe." The only safe place safe to discharge a weapon with other people around is a controlled firing range, and then only once you have passed a safety course.

This isn't a movie, kid.

Dan: What’s the problem?
Mallory: During your broadcast on September 5th, you sang Happy Birthday to your partner, Casey McCall.
Dan: Yeah, but I can explain that. Wait, it was his birthday. Why do I have to explain that?
Mallory: You sang Happy Birthday on the air.

Mallory: Listen, I think it’s sweet that you and your partner sing to each other on television. Others may think that it’s vaguely gay, but I disagree.
Dan: Thank you.
Mallory: Nonetheless, you can’t do it anymore.
Dan: Why not?
Mallory: It’s against the law?
Dan: It’s against the law to be vaguely gay?
Mallory: It’s against the law to sing Happy Birthday on television.
Dan: Why?
Mallory: It's owned by the representatives of Mildred and Patty Hill.
Dan: It took two people to write that song?
