Dobbs woudn't have liked this, heights always made him queasy, that's why he always took the train when did he die? oh, officially, about an hour ago, but he's been my guest for the past few days, awaiting his moment kind of like you, uh? kind of sad to see him go, we had a history together, 35 years, cat and mouse but eventually everyone comes to their time, even me but that plane crash you died in, how did you make that happen? oh, simply a matter of logistics logistics, when do I become part of your logistics? not yet, it's best for the time of death to be as accurate as possible you got it all figured out, don't you? in my line of business, one has to, you had me worried for a while, I was afraid you might get yourself caught what made you so sure I'd show up? that paper of yours, I've seen it before, you know? in Dallas, Lucius Snow must be a burden, knowing what's going to happen I'm not gonna do it, Marley of course not, you know it and I know it, but no one else will don't be so sure, there's a lot of people that know you're alive maybe so, but maybe I'm just a figment of Dobbs' imagination in any case, they'll find you and they'll find him, and they'll see a puzzle that fits what about Crumb? he's going to find you, Dobbs oh, yes, Crumb I wouldn't worry about him something ain't right, something just ain't right Dobbs taxi, all right, curb, curb, curb, taxi what time is it? waiting is the hardest part too bad Snow isn't here you never met him, did you? he was completely naive, reminds me of you he almost stopped you, didn't he? you tell me ok, he came to the book depository in Dallas he came there cause no one else would listen to what he had to say I know how that feels when he got there, he found a man with a rifle Oswald only Oswald wasn't alone, was he? it's your theory it was the first time you met Snow, wasn't it? you introduced yourself, you gave him a card then you escorted him out and told him everything was going to be fine few minutes later, John Kennedy was dead my, my only that's where your logistics fell apart cause Oswald didn't die when he was supposed to, instead, he ran a few months later, you supposedly died in a plane crash anything else? yeah why? no matter how things are, someone always wants something changed, and there's always someone to do it man without a country soul is a country unto itself you don't have one when I need one, I borrow then what? after that, I just throw it away yes sir, Mr Mayor, I know you want action yes, sir, I know who's in town, the eyes of the world are upon us, yes, sir same to you get me a car, I'm going down there down where? wherever the president's going, something's going to happen today, I can feel it what is this? "maybe this will explain things" what the hell is this? let him go I just need to see Crumb yeah, what you're gonna see is a bunch of years in jail fine, lock me up, do whatever you want, just let me talk to him for two seconds you, let him go, it's better be good Crumb, listen to me oh, listen to you, after you made a fool out of me and my entire department? forget about that, that's ancient history, this is about Dobbs no, no, no, no I never want to hear that name again Dobbs isn't who you think he is oh, that's news lock him up what do you mean, lock me up? hold on wait, please, detective Crumb, just look at this what is it? just look at it what? this is Dallas, 1963, check out the name oh no, this is some kind of trick, you think I'm going to fall for this? all right, leave it, leave it, sergeant, I want every man available, where's Hobson? I promised him I look, wherever he is, that's where Marley is all right, Randolph Building, should we call the Secret Service? no, no, this guy is mine it's almost time history repeats itself you don't really think this is going to happen, do you Marley? you have to admit, it's rather well planned well, I'm not so sure, it seems to me like you made a few mistakes such as? how about Hawks? the letter bomb to Hawks, you meant to kill him, but you didn't true, but it got me you, didn't it? that's still not what you planned you're here, aren't you? my choice admit it, these past few days you've fantasized squeezing the trigger, immortality a heartbeat away, you've been tempted no, I haven't of course you have you're so sure, let me have the rifle, I'll take the shot no, I don't think so listen, Marley, what you said before about not having a soul, that was a lie, wasn't it? you hear a voice of your own, don't you? you're lost, Marley, you're drowning in your own logistics, you're so far gone, you don't even remember when you were you Dobbs, get away from that gun now president's visit produces landmark agreement it never made the papers on the books, it never happened anyone who knew, said nothing they buried Dobbs at Arlington gave Marley an unmarked grave Harry Hawks had a park named after him downtown people missed him and, things moved on only now, for one man, things were different from now on, that paper would never be the same
