Nancy: Will she serve them Consecutively or Concurrently?
Geraldo: She’ll be serving them consecutively, so even with Time off for good behavior, she’ll be spending the next 50 years or so in prison.

Nancy: And getting lots of good Copy.
Geraldo: Of course. What would we Crime reporters do without Juicy murders?
