In Plain Sight Episode Scripts

N/A - In My Humboldt Opinion

Previously, on in plain sight you pulled the file on a united states marshal? It's called a criminal investigation.
It's called a god damn witch hunt.
Now, you get that garbage out of this house before I throw you the hell out with it! When was the last time you saw inspector shannon? Don't be thinking you're too good for me.
They picked the wrong girl to abduct.
I bet you anything she broke his nose.
What happened? I killed someone tonight, mom.
And this must be inspector shannon.
Hi, I'm eleanor prince.
Nice to meet you.
You have to get her to accept eleanor.
Shall I teach her to levitate while I'm at it? I know everybody thinks that she's so stable, but I swear she's not.
As far as you need, we'll walk it off.
That happy feeling's all gone.
You're on official administrative leave.
- You have no standing, nor authority as U.
S.
Marshal.
- What? Log off and go home.
Consider me logged off.
since 1970, the federal witness protection program has relocated thousands of witnesses, some criminal, some not, to neighborhoods all across the country.
Every one of those individuals shares a unique attribute, distinguishing them from the rest of the general population.
And that is somebody wants them dead.
proudly presents sync:ßÇÈâÈâ Sight Season02 Episode03 Ah, that's good.
That's good, that's good.
***** ***** no, it is your problem, bro.
- Because right now, I got more demand than supply-- - what's this? And where I come from, that makes this a seller's market.
So why don't you suck on that economic reality for a while? Believe the nerve of that guy? Gendrich needs 100 k'S tonight.
Tonight? Dude, I've only got, like, 40 cured.
The rest won't be ready for at least a couple more days.
Hey, where'd this stuff come from? South slope.
And don't give me any of that, "we will sell no weed before its time," crap.
- No! - Look, I got people screaming for product.
No, no.
Come on, rory.
- There--there is a process here, okay? - Just do it, short bus.
easy, del.
Jesus.
Jerry jerry we are in crisis mode here, okay? Now, you're going to have to lower your standards.
Just this once.
Okay, pal? why do we even keep that guy around? maybe because he knows more about growing weed than any man alive.
Yeah, I guess.
what are we going to do about this guy? What I ought to do is just quit.
Then they'd see.
They think they can do what I do? Del! Freeze! Get on the ground! Stay where you are! You're under arrest.
Okay, easy-- Okay.
Oh, that's not cool.
***** so we'll get started as soon as stan gets in with your file and the M.
O.
U.
How was your flight? Everything okay? Yeah, it was fine.
Thank you.
Except they forgot to feed us.
- You haven't eaten anything? - No.
Not since this morning.
I'll see what we've got.
I recommend the steak au poivre.
And the sand dabs are divine.
Okay, everybody let's get started.
So, jerry has anyone briefed you on the memorandum of understanding? I beg your pardon? What's wrong with him? Is he on something? no, that's the problem, he hasn't been allowed to get high since coming into the program.
So you're telling me U.
S.
Marshals kept him from taking illegal drugs? You don't understand.
Jerry he has a prescription for medical marijuana.
It's the only thing that helps his social anxiety disorder.
I see.
Well sorry, jerry, you're not in california anymore.
And the federal government considers marijuana an illegal controlled substance, period.
So you're either straight, or you're out of the program.
What happened? Did mary yell at someone already? No, no, jerry's just bummed 'cause he can't toke up.
Yeah, we get a lot of that.
Have a P.
B.
And J.
Sandwich, cheer you right up.
No, no, get that out of here now.
Now! - What, what, what? - What is this? It's just jerry is highly allergic to peanuts.
Even the tiniest taste could send him into anaphylactic shock.
Can't talk, can't eat.
Aren't you the lucky girl? and this is the famous route It was the original highway from chicago to california.
Is that when we killed all the native americans, mommy? No, stupid.
That happened in the 1800s.
- Wanda-- - let me guess, homeschooled? Ooh, look.
Bob--bob's here.
- Who? Where? - Do you see someone you know? No, it's bob's burger.
It's his favorite restaurant.
They don't use peanut oil.
I had no idea they had bob's in new mexico.
Can we stop? Please? Ah, why not? I could use a zippy soda.
welcome to bob'S.
May I take your order.
- Yeah, can I get a-- - yeah, we'd like one chicken club combo, with a coke, two bacon cheddars, with vanilla shakes, an ice water, four side salads with no dressing, and, um medium diet coke.
No, make it a large.
And, uh one large diet coke.
Your total is 38.
40 Please pull up to the next window.
Thanks.
Will do, man.
So you and bob are tight, huh? ******* it's been said neurotics build castles in the sky, psychotics live in them, and psychiatrists collect the rent.
I wonder who they call for home repair.
Man, how am I going to get through this day? Oh, crap, raph.
Haven't talked to raph since the other night.
Does this mean you're flaking on me? You were going to help me.
Register for classes.
Is that it? Jesus, I had to dig deep for that one.
Yeah, sorry.
I can'T.
Why is it that every time you say you're going to help me get my life together, something more important pops up? Please, don't do this.
I'm not doing anything.
You're the one that's always going on about being responsible and honoring your commitments.
Please? I'll get it.
I really need your help.
All right, look, I'll come pick you up around lunchtime.
Heh, thank you.
All right, all right, all right, all right, all right, all right, it's not like I'm donating a kidney.
Mom what's wrong? I've got it! What? Sweet charity I got the lead! Oh, my god! Mom! That's incredible.
Yeah, mom, that's great news.
Right? Yeah, it'S man, oh, man, o'connor.
I mean, you fbi guys I've been on the job five years, I don't even have a cubicle.
You've been in town, what, six minutes, you have a private office? Now how is that fair? Anyway, I was just wondering when you think I can expect a crew at my house to fix your mess? Actually, I was just going to call you about that.
I'm looking into the first week of when hell freezes over.
Does that work for you? 'Cause if not, I can reschedule.
Nope, that's about what I expected.
Yeah, so in the meantime, I'll just store some of my stuff here.
Does that work for you? Okay.
You know what? Eleanor I've tried to be nice.
Cut you some slack.
Because you're new.
But this is it.
I've had it.
I'm sorry, when exactly was it that you tried to be nice? I--I must've missed that.
Oh, yeah? Probably 'cause nothing can penetrate that helmet of hairspray, and that obnoxious cloud of perfume surrounding you.
- Excuse me.
- What? Inspector, uh, certain other persons around here might be afraid of you and walk on egg shells.
God forbid anyone should upset her highness.
But I'm not one of them.
You are a bully.
And you're spoiled.
And for some reason, you have been given a pass on rude behavior.
But I won't put up with it.
It's unacceptable.
You think I give a rat's ass what you will or won't put up with, eleanor? Get over yourself.
And get it through your thick head I don't want my desk over there! All right? I want it over there.
I want every every I want I just want every every - mary, are you all right? - What is it? What's wrong? - Is it like the last time? - What? No, I just-- she--back-- I want everything back the way it was before.
Before I Whoa, man.
What is that? All right, you're okay.
It's just a little residual brain gunk.
- Just breathe, I'll get you a chair.
- Okay Or do that.
Who's she? Mary, this is shelly finkel, the department psychologist.
She's here for your traumatic incident debriefing and evaluation.
Yeah.
That sounds about right.
How am I doing so far? - How's that? We getting stereo? - Oh, jesus.
Stop.
God.
My head.
She's good.
Two channels.
Everything's good.
Feel all right? I'm good.
Really.
Tip-top.
Probably just got a hold of a bad clam.
So if you could just sign whatever it is you need to sign, I've got a high priority witness, and the U.
S.
Attorney waiting for me.
I'm afraid it's not that simple.
Before I can clear you for full active duty, we need to do a complete psych work up.
Interviews, observation, job history analysis, maybe even a period of therapeutic counseling.
Yeah, look, I can give you five minutes, and then I got to prep my witness for trial.
So did you explain the process to her? Well I didn't really get a chance.
Mary, because of the extreme trauma often associated with experiences like yours, shelly's a ride along for as long as she sees fit.
A ride along? This is ridiculous.
Why? Because it's department policy.
If you want to be reinstated, you have to allow shelly to observe you, during work hours, without restrictions.
Are you joking? - I don't think-- - here take these.
What did I just take? It's just aspirin, but finish the water.
You're probably dehydrated.
Anyway this ride along program is a fairly new measure, designed to help federal employees who've been through a traumatic incident and may be at risk.
At risk-- at risk for what? Would you excuse us for a moment? Oh, sure.
This is a really bad idea, stan.
No sane person is going to let her work with firearms.
Sorry, guys.
Department regs.
I am completely handcuffed on this one.
Oh, god.
I am so screwed.
Hey, guys.
Sorry for keeping you.
I ran into A anyway, this is shelly finkel.
She's a psychiatrist from the marshals, sent to observe.
Hey, sherry.
Nice to meet you.
Uh, it's shelly.
And I'm a psychologist.
- Oh, god, jerry.
You're high.
- Like the sears tower.
Nah, I'm just a little buzzed so I could, you know, do this meeting.
This is what I flew from denver for? All right, folks.
Here's the deal.
Your friend's trial starts tomorrow, and as my main witness, you cannot take the stand on drugs.
So you better be ready to travel tomorrow morning.
And you better be able to testify straight.
damn it, jerry.
Grace, you know he can't get high.
Not for this meeting, nor for any other reason.
Then you have a major problem because he can't function in any social setting without marijuana.
And that includes testifying in court.
I--I-- I have serious social anxiety disorder.
The weed trims it out.
do you have any idea how serious this is? Your whole family could get violated and terminated out of the program.
You can wind up in jail.
Please, there has to be some dispensation jerry can get for medical marijuana.
what can I say? I'm a clinically diagnosed pothead.
- Fascinating.
- Yeah, it's a real puzzlement.
Listen to me, you are not to get loaded between now and tomorrow.
Do you understand me? Ja vol, fraulein.
And besides, I have to get to work.
Yeah, no wonder my phone service sucks.
Grace, please I know.
I know.
Let's go, jerry.
can you go with him, make sure he gets rid of his stash? All over it.
Hey, I was going to call you.
I swear it's on my list.
Oh, that's okay.
I called you.
How are you feeling? Uh, I'm good.
I mean, I'm-- you know, I'm okay.
I'm glad to hear that.
Brandi told me about what happened to you.
I'm sorry.
For what? For all of it.
Forthat you had to go through that, and, you know, I also am sorry that I wasn't there to--to help you.
To protect you.
Raph listen.
today's turning into a real bitch.
Can I call you when I get off? Maybe we can grab a bite? Sure.
Sure, I'd like that.
Call me later.
Okay, bye.
Boyfriend? No I'm emotionally closed off and incapable of romantic attachments.
you should write that down there.
So you ready to get started with the interview? As much fun as that sounds, I promised my little sister I'd help her register for school.
Sounds like fun.
Ah, they don't know what it's like.
All those people drinking their mai tais and cuba libres-- judging me.
I can't do it.
All those people watching me talk.
It's--it's too scary.
It's too, too scary.
- Oh, sweet jesus.
- So what do you think? Kitschy, right? The fbi did this? Yes, but in fairness to them, they were searching for 20 pounds of crystal meth my sister brandi allegedly hid here.
Did I hear my name? Yeah, I was talking about you-- why are you wearing my suit? Oh, because I just wanted to look more, you know, plain for registrations.
- Hi, I'm mary's sister brandi.
- Hi, I'm shelly.
Sorry.
Shelly's a psychiatrist with the marshal service here to evaluate me.
I mean, good luck.
I mean, I just think you're about 30 years too late.
She's actually right about that.
Do you want something to drink? Yeah, sure, a glass of water would be great.
Why is this floor all wet? oh--oh, yeah, the washer backed up.
Well, why the hell didn't you mop it up? Because you said you wanted agent o'connor to clean everything up.
The mess he made.
Your mess is your responsibility.
Get me some towels.
Can't, they're all in the washer.
Unbelievable, brandi.
Here, use that.
Spread that out.
Do you need some help? I think we've got it covered.
All right, come on.
I've got to get back to work.
Oh, oh yeah! I found out you can do it online.
It was super easy.
I guess I should've called to tell you.
Funny thing is this went so much better than I thought it would.
Hey, what's up? What the hell happened? Well, according to the crop duster who happened to be flying by at the time, "the dang fool just tumbled ass over tea kettle "outta his cotton-pickin' cherry picker for no good reason.
" Which isn't a huge surprise, since jerry reeked of pot when they brought him in.
Thought you were going to get rid of his stash.
I did.
However, in the limited time afforded me, I wasn't' able to get rid of all the pot in albuquerque.
Is he going to be all right? His eeg was normal.
They've got him sedated for the time being.
Well, I suppose we should look into the possibility that this was an attempt on his life.
What do you think? I don't know given the eyewitness account, and the fact that murder by cherry picker seems to have fallen from favor with your modern assassin, it's highly unlikely.
You want me to do a threat assessment, don't you? Would you mind? Oh, and while you're at it, would you request a security detail, and a hotel authorization for the family tonight? What? What could you possibly have to write about that? God.
So tell me about your family.
Love to.
Mom is a special ed teacher, working with disadvantaged kids.
She spends her free time reading to the blind or as a red cross volunteer.
Little sis, whom you met she illustrates children's books.
You always this hostile toward that which you disdain? I guess if you call that hostile, then yeah, I am.
Aren't you? I tend to give those things a wide berth.
You, on the other hand, seem to actually go out of your way to engage.
- Any idea why that is? - Yeah.
Because you're afraid of confrontation.
So you stand by and let the assholes of the world behave badly.
I think people should be held accountable for their actions.
I see.
So you hold yourself accountable for your actions.
I do.
I assume the same holds true for your family.
Maybe you can tell me some of the ways in which you've held them accountable for their bad behavior? Hey, now what is it about that question that makes you so angry? No response okay, we'll come back to that one.
- What? - Hey, it's me.
The theatre just called, mom didn't show up for rehearsal.
She was supposed to be there three hours ago.
- And you called me because? - What should I do? I don't know.
I guess start making the usual calls, hospitals, bars, highway patrol.
Look, I'm getting another call.
Call me when you know something.
I'll do the same.
Okay, bye.
Yep.
Okay, thanks.
I'll be right up.
Jerry's awake.
Hey, daddy.
Hi, daddy.
How do you feel? Hi, sweetheart.
It's okay.
I'm here, the kids are here.
You're going to be fine.
Who--who are you people? Jerry, sweetheart.
It's me.
I'm grace.
I'm your wife.
And I'm here with liza and soren.
Our children.
Remember? I don't know who you are.
Daddy it's me, liza.
I'm sorry.
I don't know who you are.
- Daddy.
- Take them away.
No, no.
Okay, okay.
It's all right, kids.
Daddy just bumped his head.
And it's making him forget, but he's going to remember.
He's going to get better, I promise.
I'm so sorry, I don't want to make anyone cry.
Shh, it's all right.
Grace.
Why don't you take the kids outside for a few minutes? All right, come on, kids.
It'll be okay.
Why don't you cut the crap, jerry.
If you think this amnesia B.
S.
Is going to save you from testifying, you're in for a real unhappy surprise.
Listen to me, you fruit basket.
You're at least partly responsible for that dead dea agent, and one way or another, you're going to make good by him.
So I'm going to come back in a half hour.
And if the person I know as jerry hasn't reappeared, wide awake, and ready to testify I am going to crawl under those covers, reach down your throat, and pull him out by your balls.
Got it? Good.
There.
Knock yourself out.
Yes, marshall.
Oh, hi, eleanor.
I didn't realize you werein stan's office.
Hope I'm notinterrupting anything.
No, no.
Not at all.
Yeah, uh, what can I dofor you, inspector? The threat assessmenton jerry checks out normal.
But just to be safe,I need an authorization to move the family to a motel, and for an additionalsecurity detail.
- Whatever you need.
- Thanks, boss.
Now you kids get back towhatever it was you were doing.
Emergency.
Admitting, please.
Sorry, I was humming alongto your hold music.
Anyway, I was wonderingif there was a jinx shannon that was admitted therein the past few hours? She's my mother.
Sure.
What is that song? Oh, yeah, I guessyou don't get to hear it.
Okay, you're sureshe's not there? Okay, thanks.
Oh, could you put meon hold? I'll hang upwhen the song's over.
Hello? Ugh, what a bitch.
see if this rings a bell.
* I got a girlI just adore little liza jane * way down southin baltimore little liza jane right.
* Oh, little liza, little liza jane * oh little liza,little liza jane does that sound familiarat all? It's okay, daddy.
It'll come back to you.
I don't havea song.
Wow, typical second kid blues.
Get used to it.
Sorry grace? Could I get a few more minutesalone with jerry? We'll be right outside.
Thank you.
Listen, jerry I owe you an apology.
I lost my temper.
I know how scaredyou must be.
That for you,the thought of testifying in front of a roomfull of strangers is like how standing naked in front ofa hungry lion would be for me.
Threw in the nakedso you'd have something to write about.
Anyway, I wouldn'tblame you at all for pretendingto have amnesia.
Okay, but I need to knowif you're faking or not in order to determine what to do next.
So if you couldjust let me know.
I'm sorry, I don't knowwho you are, and I don't knowwhat you're talking about.
Okay.
Okay, I understand.
Oh, gosh.
It occurred to meyou haven't eaten anything since the accident,so I um I got you a cookie.
Grace said theseare your favorite.
Peanut butter? No, no! Are you insane? Here, here! You're good.
You're very good.
- What was that? - He's allergic to peanuts.
Apparently,he'd rather die than testify.
- Amnesia, huh? - Don't you dare laugh.
No, I would never.
Although, it is surprising this hasn't happened before.
Considering how many peoplewould like to forget they ever met you.
Took you a long timeto think that one up, didn't it? Almost an hour.
All right,so answer me this.
If he really doesn't knowwho he is, why's hestill acting like jerry? Afraid to talk? Because we're stillwho we are, even if we don't know who we are.
That suggests an interesting variationof schrodinger's cat experiment, wherein an object "is"in a state of superposition, and neither "is," nor "isn't,"for want of observational-- Okay, I'll stop.
Good god, now what? What? The hospital just called,mom's in the emergency room.
- What? What for? - they didn't say.
Okay, sit tight.
I'm going to head down.
- I'll see what I can find outand call you back.
- Okay.
Don't forget.
I won'T.
Bye.
Jinx is in the E.
R.
Mom, what happened? Ask him.
Marshal shannon,what happened to my mother? Pulled her overfor driving erratically.
Gave her the orderto stay in the car, she disobeyed, got out of the car,belligerent, obviously inebriated,and fell on her face.
He's lying! She then refuseda field sobriety test and is now refusinga blood draw.
He forced me off the road, then he practically--he dragged-- mom, mom!Stop talking.
- Is she under arrest? - Yes, ma'am.
As soon asthey get her cleaned up, I'm going to take her down to metro for booking.
all right.
I'm going to seeif I can get you arraigned before the end of the day.
If not, you're going to haveto spend the night in jail.
And do not say anything elseabout what happened.
You're gonna let himtake me to jail? That's pretty much how it workswhen you get arrested, mom.
Unless you think we can shootour way out of here.
Hi, sergeant.
Mary shannon.
U.
S.
Marshals.
- How are you, ma'am? - I've been better.
My mother was picked upon a dwi.
- Ah, jeez.
Sorry.
- Thanks.
What can I do for you? Well, I was wonderingif there were any more scheduled arraignments? And would it be possiblefor the arresting officer to transport herdirectly to court so she doesn't have to spendthe night in jail? - Have a seat,I'll see what I can do.
- Appreciate it.
you're that marshalwho got kidnapped.
Shot your wayout of that basement, huh? - Yeah, that's me.
- Good for you.
Bastards gotwhat they deserved.
Anything I can doto help? No, I got it covered.
Thanks.
Aren't you going to ask mewhat I'm feeling right now, or something like that? What are you feelingright now? - Rather not talkabout it.
- Okay.
What the hell? Truth is, I guess I don't feelmuch of anything anymore.
This has been going onsince I was ten.
You ever think about washingyour hands of the whole thing? Just turning your backand walking away? - Yeah, I used to.
- Why don't you anymore? I'm not sure.
I mean, I thinka few years ago, I would've told youit's because for better or worse, youdon't walk away from family.
Like your father did.
Yeah.
So what do you thinkhas changed? Nothing.
I think I just realizedthat I'm afraid if I turn my back on her, she'llwind up dead in the gutter, or in a fiery car crash.
You realize that's likelyto happen anyway? Yeah, but this way, she won't be ableto say it's my fault.
How's that for sound reasoning? You want to knowwhat I think? Not really,but go ahead.
Tell me.
excuse me, marshal.
just when we're on the vergeof a breakthrough.
Any luck? Sorry, judge wrapped hislast appointment 15 minutes ago.
Clerk tried to catch him,see if he could hear another one for a cop, you know,but he was already gone.
- I appreciate it.
- Hey, we all got family.
I'll make sureshe gets to court with the first groupin the morning.
And we'll keep herin the temporary holding cell downstairs.
She'll have itall to herself, and you can stay with herall night long, if you want.
You're a good man,sergeant.
neurologically, he's fine.
And doctor's cleared him for release first thing in the morning.
And whatabout the amnesia? He still claimsto have no idea who heor anyone else is.
What the hellam I supposed to do with that? I swear to god, marshal.
Relax, I'll have himin denver by Straight.
I will.
And how do you expectto accomplish that? I thought it was obviousby now that I have no ideawhat I'm doing.
your honor at this time, I'd like to ask that my client be released on her own recognizance.
She lives in the community with her daughter, who is a U.
S.
Marshal, and poses no flight risk.
Is the daughterin the court today? Yes, your honor.
I'll vouch for her.
all right.
then your honor, I'd like to enter a plea of not guilty to all charges.
Time is waived.
I ask to put this over for a setting date.
How's the 22nd? Very well,counselor.
Bail remains setat $1,000.
drive her home, don't let her out of the house until I get back.
- Man, that's rough.
- Tell me about it.
Come on, we've gota plane to catch.
Can't believeyou're going with us.
I can't believeyou'd think I'd bail before seeing howthis ends.
****** all right, folks.
In a few minutes, I'll go into the courtroom, trial begins with opening statements.
After that, jerry will bethe first witness called.
If you thinkhe's not going to make it, you let me know before I call him, understand? He's going to make it.
and just so we're crystal clear if for any reason any reason at all you don't take the standand testify against your former partners, this time tomorrow,you'll find yourself in the defendant's box with them.
On trialfor that murdered dea agent.
All right,way to rally the troops.
You're a regularhenry the fifth.
Grace.
You've gotto make him understand that if he doesn't testify, he'll lose you, the kids, everything, forever.
You don't get it.
This isn't a matter of choice.
Jerry's no more capableof speaking in front of a roomfull of strangers than you are of flying.
I don't know.
Pretty sure that if I hada family like yours, and someone was goingto take them away, I'd try to fly.
Jerry sweetheart.
I know I knowthat you know who you are.
Who I am.
And who our children are.
And I also know why you're doing this.
But here's the thing liza, and soren,and I love you.
And need you so much.
Our world crumbleswithout you.
And so I know you feelthe same way too, I know you do.
Just just this once.
Just this one time.
I need youto be brave for us.
So that our worlddoesn't fall apart.
And if you can do that, try and be brave then we canall go home together.
And you'll neverhave to do it again.
I can'T.
I'm so sorry.
No, it's okay.
It's okay.
You want meto get word to scalfa? No.
Is the prosecutionready to call its first witness? We are, your honor.
The witness has been called.
Okay, jer let's go.
Jerry, let's go.
Come on.
- Mary, mary.
No, this is cruel.
- Grace, sit down.
Good god! Maybe if somebodyactually made him stand up on his ownfor once, he would.
Listen up, jerry.
This is not about you anymore.
I will not allow youto spend the rest of your life in a five by eight cellwaiting for the executioner.
I refuse to look backon this moment, knowing that ilet that happen.
So you are going to goout there, and you are goingto testify.
Now stand up straight.
Look at me.
I know you want to be brave.
I know you do.
Everybody does.
Come on.
Marshall.
It's okay.
Just lookinto the microphone, answer the questions,and everything will be all right.
State your name,please.
Sir? Please state your name.
My name is jerry royal.
do you solemnly swear the testimony you're about to give is entirely truthful? I do.

And did you work alonein this enterprise? No.
Did you havebusiness partners? I had two business partners.
Would you please tellthe court the name of your twobusiness partners? Rory karland delano hunt.
Are mr.
Karl and mr.
Huntin the courtroom today? Yes.
And would you point them out for the court, please? told you if I played it cool, he'd ask me out.
Does anyone thinkyou're funny? I do.
But more in a laughing-at-her sort of way.
What do you want? I didn't come here to wastemy time with underlings.
I have an interagency request for all work productgenerated by this office relatedto the spanky carson, brandi shannon investigation.
- Brandi? - Was there a knock? I didn't hear a knock.
- Did you hear a knock? - There was no knock.
Agent o'connor.
It's good to see you.
You know, I have a terrificworking relationship with the fbi officehere in albuquerque.
You, being from out of town,may not have known that, which is why I'm stillon this side of the desk.
But if you ever enter my office without invitation or speak to mein that tone ever again, I promise you, I will make youcry in front of your friends.
Now, inspectors, would you please escort these gentlemen outside? Okay, folks,you heard the man.
Let's go.
I'm not leaving heretill I get what I came for.
Where do you get the ballsto come into my office, you little insect, and speak to me in that tone? - An insect? - Yeah, this is my office.
Office? Hi, sir.
It's eleanor.
I'm very well.
Very well, sir, and you? Good to hear.
Sir, we havea little incident here.
Let's not lose our badgesor our heads.
Thank you.
Sorry to interrupt,sir.
Agent o'connor,the phone is for you.
This isspecial agent o'connor.
Oh, hello, sir.
Yes, sir, I am.
Yes, sir, but-- well, thank you, sir.
Good-bye, sir.
Somebody'sin trouble.
We have to get backto the office.
What? What? I'm supposedto like her now? So here's the deal.
I've never met anyoneas good at their job as you.
Yeah, I don't suck.
I've also never met anyoneliving day-in, day-out, with as much stress as you andobviously that's a big concern.
Normally,under conditions like these, I would insist on at leasta month off with counseling to try to alleviate someof this stress.
However, I've come to believe that this jobis your let-off valve.
It's literally the thingthat keeps you sane.
Does that meanI can keep working? It does under two conditions.
The first being that you call me once a week, or the second you feel like things are gettingout of hand.
Okay.
What's the other condition? That you cut yourselfsome slack.
Because no matter how hard you try to proveyou're a good girl, make everything right, solve every problem, your fatheris not coming back.
How do you know? You don't have a girlin there, do you? No, I've sworn off girls.
I thought youwere going to call.
I know.
I'm sorry.
A bunch of stuff came up.
What else is new? Could you hand me a towel,please? Coming up.
I wonder how it can be.
All of us quaking cowards, hiding under coversone day, storming beaches the next.
Shrinking violetsimpossibly frail.
Hey, what happenedto all your-- our best days spentunquestioning, hurtling into hail storms.
The rest just spent.
No.
Op an******* inexplicable paradox perhaps best leftin a bowl full of kibble to be lapped upby schrodinger's cat.
there goesthat resolution.
I may haveunderestimated you.
