Vick: Oh, man.
Well, this is it, man. I’m not getting any more stoned than this. I mean, holy fuck.
I might be dead.
I guess I’m not dead.
(picks up phone)
Lawyer: Michael, it’s your lawyer.
Vick: What’s going on, Mr. Perry Mason?
Lawyer: Michael, you’ve been indicted.
Vick: Indicted? Really? Who’s throwing a party? Ookie loves a good party.
Lawyer: No, no, you’ve been indicted., not invited. An indictment is when you are charged with a crime.
Vick: Well, what crime did I do?
Lawyer: Conspiracy to travel in interstate commerce in aid of unlawful activities and to sponsor a dog in an animal fighting venture in U.S. District Court for the Eastern District in Richmond, Va.
Vick: Uh… wha… I was in a commercial?
Lawyer: You’re being charged with dog fighting, Michael.
Vick: Oh, snap! Really? Well, fuck me blind.
Lawyer: This is serious, Michael. It says that Bad Newz Kennels…
Vick: You like that name? I think the Z makes it even fucking nastier.
Lawyer: It’s a very nice name. It says you ran a dog fighting outfit out of Smithfield, VA.
Vick: Well, what’s so bad about that? Know what else they do in Smithfield? Make ham. And I don’t see any charging any farmers out there with pig fighting.
Lawyer: Well, they don't make them fight.
Vick: Well, they should. That would be fucking sweet.
Lawyer: Slaughtering pigs is legal because it’s for commerce.
Vick: But you just said I was being booked for commerce! I made $50,000 off that shit!
Lawyer: It’s just… It’s just not the same.
Vick: (takes bong hit) Well then, that’s fucked up.
Lawyer: It’s says you performed electrocutions. True?
Vick: Hell, yes! I’m the most electrocuting player in the NFL!
Lawyer: And that you drowned them? Hung them? Slammed them to the ground?
Vick: No way, man! I was just being playful. No, wait! That was, like, obedience training and shit. Yeah! I had to drown a bitch or two because they fought TOO MUCH! I prevented them from fighting AGAIN! So, in many ways, I am a hero. How you like that?!
Lawyer: I just... I think you should prepare for the fallout, okay?
Vick: Eh, whatever. Fuck that. (hangs up) I think I better kill the rest of those dogs. I’m tired of these dogs snitching. Priscilla! Come here, girl!
Vick: Now, you know Ookie loves you, right?
Vick: In fact, he loves you so much, he wants to show you around doggie heaven! You interested?
Vick: I’ll take that as a hell yes!

UPDATE #2: PFT explains the origins of Ookie:
THE ORIGIN OF "OOKIE"
One of the strangest aspects of the Tuesday indictment of Falcons quarterback Mike Vick is that, in addition to "Ron Mexico," he also is known as "Ookie."
So where does the Ookie come from?
Apparently, it was given to him by his mother. And, apparently, he only lets close friends refer to him by that moniker.
"Man, if they called me Ookie it would really be on," Vick told ESPN.com's Page 2 several years ago. "I would really be upset, because nobody else can call me by my nickname but my mom. Unless I give you permission because you really know me, but none of the guys know me real good so they can't do it. But yeah, that would really get me going."
