Hill Street Blues (1981) s03e04 Episode Script

Rein of Terror

Item 10 yeah, the weather.
Today's anticipated high 103 degrees.
- of course, those of you who edify yourselves with the A.
television news Are aware of the picture The most beautiful picture this crusted desk sergeant Has had the pleasure of viewing from a weather satellite.
Cumulus clouds.
Cool, Canadian cumulus clouds.
Fluffy white billows of angel hair pregnant with moisture Due to arrive this late P.
! Be advised, there is a cautionary addendum.
Of passing in the night like felons Without giving us as much as a day's shade.
Item 11.
And I want you all to look for the moral in this.
It seems our space cadet, Mr.
Smith of Jefferson Avenue, has been found here on earth.
A, uh, transferal form, half of which was incorrectly filled out, half of which was left blank, caused the suspect to be placed erroneously on a bus For the hutchison white-collar lockup in the country.
Smith's unlawful incarceration was discovered Only after he signed up for the bridge tournament.
Be aware, this story may very well have had a different ending Had the suspect been instead the triple murderer put away by this precinct last month.
The homily goes the job isn't over until the paperwork's done.
And you all had better start living with it Or else you'll find yourself being replaced by student officers Within whom I am imbuing the necessity of bureaucratic detail! And with that, I conclude the items on this morning's agenda.
But I would please like you to hold your seats for a few personal notes.
Sarge, it's hot! Lieutenant hunter was admitted to mercy hospital yesterday afternoon.
The exact nature of the malady is unknown to this podium.
But even as we speak, lieutenant hunter is on the operating table.
The front desk is closely monitoring the situation And will keep the squad room informed as news develops.
In the meantime, let's send the lieutenant all our prayers and best wishes for a speedy recovery.
Hear! Hear! On a more celebratory note, the birthday wagon is amongst us today.
- Officer Andrew renko.

If a man hasn't made his mark by the time he's 35, it's all over.
All right, renko, I'm taking you to lunch today at the café bardeau.
It was gonna be a surprise, but, uh, sounds like you might do yourself in before noon.
What do you mean by lunch? Lunch, food, eat.
If this is gonna be a surprise party, i cannot take it, not on this day.
Happy birthday, cowboy.
Ooh, older men.
Happy birthday, cowboy! You know, this is rapidly becoming a situation of public amusement, and I am not amused! I only hope that people treat me as nice as they treat you When I'm your age, sweetheart.
My age! Hey, renko, I got you this a pictorial history of the super bowl.
Ninety-four pictures, 10 in color.
A guy should sit down right on his birthday.
Well, at least there's one person in this group That understands the nature of a personal gift.
Thank you, Leo.
Hey, birthday boy, don't forget the job ain't over till the paperwork's done! Dispatch.
We have a 9-11.
Armed robbery in progress.
See surplus store, corner people's drive, 124th street.
Did you load the camera, babe? Mm-hmm.
All units vicinity 900 block, there's a store alarm.
Possible 459.
- Hey, we're on the air.
- This is unit 2214.
We'll take the call.
Coley and Lyle? Yeah.
Doesn't it bother you, Neal? What? Spying on cops.
You don't foul your own nest, babe.
Hey, man, I've been on the other side of this thing.
It's not so black and white.
Coley and Lyle, a couple of choir boys, for god's sake.
Man, it must be a 120 degrees in here, Neal.
What do you say? Hey, cool it, babe.
Uh, about this Bahamas thing, you goin' or what? Hey, j.
, man, I told you when i know about it, you'll know about it.
Okay, okay.
Coley's out.
Man, I don't believe it.
This is unit 22 Oh, ray, the prostitute in the goldblume situation, do you have an address? An approximate address.
I want her in here right away.
Officer, uh, Robert hill, where can I find him, please? Uh, third desk against the wall.
Here you go, councilman.
- Thank you.
- Can I help you over there? Officer hill.
Councilman detweiler.
You look like a man that likes baseball.
I do? I've had a, uh, season box for about eight years, third base line.
I've got city business tonight and, uh, such an important game, it'd be a shame to waste them.
You and a lady friend? I'm sorry.
I can't accept them.
Officer hill, I, uh I appreciate character, but I also applaud spunk when I see it.
And I want to tell you that I approve 100% Of the way you handled our little misunderstanding the other day.
So I thought we could settle it like a couple of old allies.
Case closed.
You're a good cop, Robert.
You know, you're on the best force in the country.
It's people like you that keep us voting those high appropriations.
Thank you.
So take the tickets.
Just my way of saying keep up the good work.
I finally got this thing to work.
I-it was the battery.
Let's go.
I thought because it was made by them nipponese people that it wouldn't work, but the reason it didn't work was because it didn't have the battery.
Mick! This for the drug buy? Yes, sir.
Run it down for me.
We meet this afternoon, uh, do a little flexing.
No action at the meet? No, there shouldn't be.
Uh, I'll show him the money, he'll tell me he doesn't have the stuff, we'll hondle for a little bit, we'll set it up for tonight.
Take gennaro with you.
Captain, you're making me nuts! I'm just passing on an order from the chief.
You know, you sort of have to admire him.
Juicing up Daniels like that, showing up at 5:30.
? That's what the night man told Leo.
Yes, sir.
Hey, morning, Mick.
Look, uh, about last night.
You know, I get sometimes I get wound up.
When I mean to say one thing and it comes out like something else.
I was just trying to say how grateful I was.
Hey, I got something for you.
I was walking by the front street market, you know.
That's very thoughtful.
This ought to do it.
Just sign right here.
This is a game, you know, between me and the insurance companies, that's all.
Nobody stops the criminals.
I just keep paying higher premiums For the privilege of getting robbed every three months.
Lucky for you you're only down a couple of vcrs.
Maybe you'll get lucky do you think we like this? Heat wave like this? This stinks.
We got cops home sick, out on vacation, tied up in court.
We're doing good to get six units out on the street.
And in the winter, it's too wet.
All I know is the crooks are too dumb to pay any attention to the weather.
Are we done here or what? We sure are.
If I were you, I'd get that door fixed right away.
Yeah, there's a locksmith across the street.
I'm putting his kid through Harvard.
Lyle and I rode together for a month when we were rookies.
You know, one time I saw him go through two dumpsters and a grease rack To get to a cat burglar, can you beat it? Can you beat that? Do we bust 'em now? No.
Let's wait and see where they dump it.
Frank! Coley and Lyle? Larue and Washington are still on it.
Diane koslo? Fifteen years old, maybe.
We found her working on a 133rd street and dekker.
Good work, Joe.
Ray, let's see if we can find out if Joyce Davenport is still in conference with her arsonist.
I'll be there in a minute.
All right.
Captain, any word on lieutenant hunter? Well, he's out of surgery, but we won't have a report on the biopsy for a couple of hours.
Thank you.
They can't make you stay here if you want to leave, Diane.
Nor can they force you to answer any questions you don't want to.
It's entirely up to you.
And I'll be here if you're unsure about anything, all right? Okay.
Do you know Henry goldblume? Yeah.
I guess, sort of.
There are stories coming out of the Jefferson heights police precinct That you know him a lot better than just sort of.
Hey, look, I don't have to be here.
She said so.
So why don't you just leave me alone? Henry resigned yesterday after 10 years on this police force.
The reason he resigned was these rumors that he'd been sleeping with you.
It's not too late to save his career, but only you can do that.
Well, what about my case? Can you help me with my case? Diane, captain furillo's position is that he can't offer you any deals Because he doesn't want to encourage you to tell anything but the truth.
You know, I get people wanting freebies all day.
I think Ms.
koslo doesn't wish to speak any longer.
Diane, Henry helped you.
He listened to you.
He fed you and sheltered you and did everything he could to get you into the best program.
Are you gonna abandon him now? Are you gonna treat him the same way your parents treated you? Is that how you pay back one of the few people who have ever been kind to you? Don't abandon him.
At least give him the same consideration he gave you.
Did you sleep with him? Did you? Then when you were picked up the second time in Jefferson heights, why did you tell the detectives you did? Because I spent the whole night in jail.
He should have come down and gotten me if he was my friend.
He wouldn't even talk to me.
It would mean a lot if you'd give a statement.
He was really nice to me.
I just slept on the couch.
He didn't touch me once.
Ray, Ms.
koslo will give us a statement now.
I haven't gotten through to Henry yet.
All right.
Just keep trying.
Rachel's, his apartment, everywhere.
Well, whip my wire.
I cannot believe this.
Two play-off tickets for tonight right behind the dugout.
That's right.
I cannot believe this.
This must have set you back 60 bucks, partner.
A mere flesh wound, my man.
Happy birthday.
Happy birthday to me.
We're gonna have a ball.
But I can't go.
You can't go? No, I have a date tonight.
Will you look at this.
Thirty-five goin' on 50, in a one-way job And a roach-hole apartment goin' up to 500 bills next month And a checkin' account on the disabled list And I can't even get my partner to be my date on my birthday.
No, you're not gettin' older, you're gettin' downright maudlin.
The woman is lookin' at you again.
What are you talking about? She's not lookin' at me.
She is.
She is not.
She's probably just waitin' for somebody.
Now be quiet.
You know what your problem is, renko? A bad attitude.
If you lost a little weight Don't talk to me about my weight! And got some decent clothes, you'd have to fight the ladies off with a nightstick.
- Excuse me, officer hill? - Yeah.
We have a phone call for you at the front desk.
I left this number with the dispatch.
Why, thanks.
You're welcome.
Excuse me, officer.
What? I'd like to report a misdemeanor.
You mean, to me? Aside from your partner, I don't see any other uniforms in here.
I guess you're right, ma'am.
What is the nature of the complaint? How about breach of contract for starters? My lunch date's a no-show.
Well, I'd call that a major felony, ma'am.
Except judging by appearances, I'd say that your suspect has an excellent chance of acquittal Due to temporary insanity.
San sagelo, muskado, Saint apoxy, perriere, uh, lunch nay, uh, anything you say, François, as long as it doesn't have a screw-on cap.
Don't let the backwoods charm fool you, ma'am.
He's really a very boring person.
Cheryl, I'd like you to meet my lesser half.
Bobby hill, this is Cheryl Bradford.
Nice to meet you.
Nice to meet you.
Seems the lesser half's sister got her car impounded.
So maybe we should drive down to south street and check on the situation.
Why don't you drive down to south street and check on the situation.
I'll cab it back to the station after I finish my little tete-a-tete with Cheryl here.
Suit yourself.
Well, here we are.
Here we are.
You, uh y-you sure you don't want to have something to eat or something? No, thank you.
Officer renko, uh, do you think it would be terribly forward of me To tell you how attracted I am to you? Well, ma'am, uh, it's a free country, isn't it? Just put it down, fellas, and get your hands up real slow! What are you guys doing here? Get 'em up, huh? Don't make this any tougher than it has to be.
Make what tougher? What the hell are you guys talking about? - You're under arrest, my man.
Grand larceny.
- Hey, come on.
Wait a minute.
We were just taking it down to the station for prints.
Move it.
It's a stereo shop heist.
We couldn't carry it around in the unit all day.
We're just dropping it here till the end of the shift.
Save it, man.
Will you just save it, huh? Come on, j.
I'm 34 years old, man.
You're talking about my life here! I got a family, man.
I got a father who thinks I'm some kind of neighborhood hero.
Now this is gonna kill him.
Come on, j.
Come on, j.
, please, man.
No cuffs.
Come on now, I'm begging Shut up, man.
Just turn around and shut up! Oh, Cheryl, I swear you have rotated my day 580 degrees.
And I'll tell you something, lady, nothing like this has ever happened to me before.
First time for everybody.
Yeah, and what I'm dyin' to know is I mean, c-can I see you again? - Sure.
- When? We'll run into one another again sometime.
No, no, I mean it.
We had a wonderful time together.
Maybe we should leave it at that.
Leave it at what? Are you in the habit of bedding down with somebody And then never seeing them again? Really, I gotta go.
I've got a dentist at 3:00.
Oh, come on.
Now, come on.
Happy birthday.
Wait a minute now.
H-how'd you know it was my birthday? You told me at the restaurant.
No, I didn't.
I definitely did not.
Now wait a minute.
Now what's going on here? Now just talk to me, Cheryl.
What is going on here is that we had a terrific time.
And you're an attractive, charming man and a wonderful lover.
Don't lie to me, Cheryl.
Just don't do that.
Just tell me how you knew it was my birthday.
Because I was your present.
I do this for a living, Andy.
But that's got nothing to do with how much I've enjoyed these last couple of hours Or what a sweet man I think you are.
You are a hooker.
I arrest people like you.
All right, now, what do you want? Huh? Do you want $10? $20? $40? Why don't we make it an even 100 and just put 10 bucks in for the charade? Or do you give a special professional discount for cop's birthdays? Here, take this! Your friends already took care of that, Andy.
Get out.
Aside from the alley shots, we've got a good five minutes of tape From the wire we planted on the store's owner.
Webster and Charles are running serial numbers on the stuff we hauled out of the garage.
Looks to be $20,000, $30,000 worth.
- The store owner cooperated in this? - Yes.
I'd say we got these babies cold.
I've seen those.
There's nothing to say.
You'll be booked here, then moved downtown for statements.
You'll be kept in special lockup overnight and make bail, if you can, in the morning.
As of now, you're suspended from all police duties.
That's all.
Captain, please don't book us here.
Take us down to midtown or anywhere.
Don't book us in our own station.
I don't think I could stand the sight of it, either.
Can you take them? Here.
Doesn't make any difference with the department.
Just leave your badges.
Your best friend takes you to lunch So he says And then sets you up for the most humiliating experience of your entire lifetime, expecting you to get naked in the middle of the afternoon with a total stranger! Lighten up, renko.
It was only a birthday present.
What kind of a friend would do a thing like that? The kind who has to listen to you moaning about your love life 10 hours every work day.
Don't you think I don't know who else was in on this? In on what? He didn't like his birthday present.
We thought it would make your day.
It made my day, all right.
It made it downright miserable.
What made his day? Would you stay out of this? I don't believe you.
Why can't you just accept it in the spirit that it was given? I accept it in the spirit in which it was given! You mean a hooker? Will you keep your mouth down, please? A spirit of malice, moral bankruptcy and a total lack of human consideration! What are you yelling at me for? Boy, I do not believe you guys.
Frank, chief Daniels's office called.
He wants to see you.
Bayside athletic club at 5:30.
I've been waiting for this.
I'll be with Howard until then.
Did you phone Henry? He hasn't been in his apartment all day.
We're still trying.
Well, try Rachel's, his folks, friends in the department.
Use your imagination, but get him here.
All right.
What's your most favorite role? Um That question stinks, doesn't it? Listen, what I really wanna know is Well, what's John gennaro really like? Once in the papers, I saw a picture of a guy who shot five people in a bar.
I went to a mirror and I didn't leave it Until I had that same look in my eyes.
You see, the thing was, i mean, I could see the bar.
I could see the bullets hitting the wall.
I could hear the barmaid screaming.
You see, it was all there in that look, and that's John gennaro.
Don't you ever scare yourself? It's just acting, fay.
Come on, motormouth.
How are you, Mrs.
furillo? Hi, Mick.
Uh, thank you, fay.
Who's the extra baggage? That's my maiden aunt.
I got 10,000 here.
You got the stuff? Sorry, fellas, but there ain't no stuff.
Maybe next time.
What are you talking about, woodley? Profit motive, my man.
I got offered a better price about an hour ago.
We got an arrangement, hairbag.
I got orders to fill.
Now let's not get pushy, cousin.
Given the circumstances, I didn't even have to show up for the meet.
It's just my way of being cordial.
You're gonna blow this over chump change.
What's the matter with you? My people can move 10 times this weight on a weekly basis.
Well, maybe we'll do business Some other time.
How much? How much more are they offering? One g on top of the 10.
Now there's 500 worth of good faith.
And there's 10 more of these on delivery.
Now that's one and a half on top of 10.
And I don't even know it's missing.
I'll call you later where we're gonna meet.
Oh, we'll be here, my man.
But look, before you go.
I tell you, you just better dig yourself.
You Jack us around one more time, and I'm personally gonna chop off your right arm and have it for lunch.
Man, you got some ugly relations.
What are you doing? What are you doing? What? I told you to be quiet! I thought the deal was going south! You thought? You're not supposed to think! You're not even supposed to be here.
All right, I'm sorry.
Okay, I am.
What the hell are you trying to do to me, furillo? Less than 24 hours ago, I ordered you to get rid of somebody.
And what do I get instead of his badge? A statement from a 15-year-old prostitute.
I won't get rid of an innocent man.
Innocent? Alleged boffing aside, frank, you know how many department regulations you break When you take a runaway home with you instead of arresting her? Is that really the issue here, chief? Department regulations? Need I remind you, frank, you're the one who first raised this whole damn holiness issue Vis-a-vis our dear departed Lou hogan.
Now the chickens come home to hill street And it seems that you're not prepared to live by it.
I'm precisely prepared to live by it.
I'm the only precinct captain in the entire city Who has followed up on all the charges that hogan sprayed at your roast.
I took the badges of coley and Lyle less than two hours ago, and I'm prepared to take more of them if it comes to that.
And just as I expected Lou hogan to be responsible for his men, I take full responsibility for Henry goldblume right now.
Meaning what? Meaning I won't use him as a scapegoat.
Meaning, if you take his badge and gun, you'll find mine in the same envelope.
You're replaceable, frank.
Don't imagine you're not.
I've got Ron Thompson and Joe Butler wasting away in internal affairs.
I'm sure either would find it most congenial up on the hill.
But if I go down on account of goldblume, I take Arnie detweiler with me.
You what? It makes an interesting story, don't you think? City councilman, six times arrested for drunk driving, released yesterday at the expressed command of the chief of police Because said councilman holds the department's purse strings.
Oh, be careful, my friend.
You're treading on thin ice.
That's the deal.
Goldblume for detweiler.
I've put up with a lot of crap from you, furillo That I don't tolerate from my other captains Because I respect your idealism.
But you're playing politics now.
And if I were you, my friend, I'd be damn sure I knew what I was doing.
If I weren't, I wouldn't be here right now.
Okay, frank.
But I want to tell you something.
You're forcing me to eat something here that I don't like.
And believe me, you're gonna pick up the tab on it.
One other thing.
If you ever want to play poker with me again, you better be damn sure you have another Arnie detweiler in the hole.
Because I promise you, your badge ain't gonna be enough.
Detailing, frank.
With proper detail, a good pair of regulation U.
naval last will outlast you.
You see here where the upper is stitched to the sole? You got to get Polish in there.
Leather rot sets in, and before you can say ho chi minh, you've got a malignant growth that is spreading insidiously through the shoe.
How are you feeling, Howard? Oh.
Now look at this.
You can't let residues of Polish accumulate around these eyelets.
It'll eat through that brass as quick as a carcinogen through a white mouse.
If it comes to that, frank Promise me a spartan cortege, will you, old chum? Taps at sunset, a lone volley from an m-16 And, uh, a simple limestone slab.
Howard, stop it.
She could stop a Plymouth at 90 yards, frank.
Find her a good home.
Howard, please.
Excuse me.
Lieutenant, could I, uh, speak to you in private, please? Uh, frank, I may need a backup on this call.
I expect you to be entirely frank with me, doctor.
How much time have I got? All things being equal, I'd say 30, 40 years.
Just got the biopsy report back from the lab.
The tumor was benign.
You've got a clean bill of health.
I'll check in with you tomorrow to okay your release.
Howard, in case you didn't hear, you're gonna be out of here in another day.
You ought to be jumping out of your bedsheets.
Maybe so, frank.
Oh, goldarn it, frank.
When they wheeled me down here this morning And I wasn't sure whether this was gonna be my final battle, I It all came to me like a breath of brown wind.
My life is an unfired shot.
No wife, no children, no one to give my love to.
Here I lie, 45 years old With money in the bank, education, professional repute, yet I am bereft of all the most important things in life.
Oh, I yearn to wake in the morning To the sound of little eaters on the steps.
Time for dinner, lieutenant.
Oh, could you help take those things? Oh, sure.
Thank you.
By the way, you know, about parenting, it's the mother's age, not the father's age, to be concerned about.
Because many men remain virile way up into their 80s.
Oh, really? And if you've been alone in your life up until now, you mustn't blame yourself.
Because people just have different cycles for when they're able To do certain things in their lives.
Uh, nurse Wulfawitz.
I'm on till midnight.
So if you need me Just whistle.
Those are the nicest words I've heard from a partisan of the female gender in 16 years.
Wulfawitz? Mm-hmm.
Washington, you got a miss Fowler on line six.
Got it, Leo.
Do you mind, j.
? Huh? Oh, sure.
All right, just take it easy.
Hello, miss Fowler.
I appreciate all the time you're giving me to think over the offer, and well, uh, I want the job.
That's wonderful.
But there's one thing we need to talk about before I can actually take it.
I'd like to bring along my partner as part of the staff.
John larue.
You talked with him.
Yeah, I know he's had a few problems in the past, but I can vouch for him now.
Well, I'm sorry, miss Fowler, but the job really isn't that important to me without him.
To be honest, we're pretty much of a team.
Yes, I'm afraid it does.
No, I don't think there's a chance I'll change my mind.
I'm sure you'll find a good man for the job.
Thanks for considering me.
Now why not? Because I won't compromise a major operation out of this precinct Just to satisfy an actor's artistic itch.
We've bent over backwards for three days to accommodate you.
This is where it stops.
You're not going out.
Look, I said I'll absolve the police department of all responsibility.
I'll sign any kind of release you want.
I've made my decision.
You're right, captain.
I apologize.
Thank you, captain.
Mick, ask Henry to step in here, would you? Yes, sir.
Where have you been? I took Josh to the movies, dropped him off at his mom's.
I was driving around afterward trying to find another movie to go to.
There was a Fender bender.
Guys had the tire irons out.
So I move in to break it up, reach in my pocket, there's no badge, no gun.
I felt naked.
I don't like early retirement, frank.
I guess I want to fight this thing.
Nothing to fight.
The girl made a statement withdrawing all charges.
What about my jacket? Didn't I violate a thousand department regulations? Nothing is going into your jacket, Henry.
Why not? Just let it go.
I can't.
What'd I cost you? What's the difference? The difference is protecting me instead of believing in me.
How am I supposed to do that when we both know you screwed up.
No, I won't own that one, frank.
I did what I thought was right.
Henry, a lot of people have soiled themselves Cloaked in what they thought was right.
I did what I thought was right in the hogan case.
Hogan is dead.
I didn't stand up for what I thought was right with Arnie detweiler And the result is I had something to trade for your badge.
Now explain to me what notion of right survives all that.
I don't know the answer to that, frank.
I just don't know.
Maybe a civilian can get away with playing daddy To a 15-year-old hooker at 2:00 in the morning, but not a cop.
And the fact that you didn't have sex with her is no excuse for a lousy judgment call.
What do you want me to say, I was wrong? Yes.
All right, I was wrong! Maybe I did make a mistake, but I am what I am, frank, and I can't promise you I'm not gonna make the same kind of mistake again.
And I can't promise you I'll be there next time to cover your losses.
But in the meantime, Henry Take back your hardware.
Oh, lord.
What are you doing here? I went by the station to see if I could find you.
They said you might be here.
I felt bad about this afternoon.
You're a nice guy.
I thought maybe I could buy you dinner.
I have had enough extravagant celebrations today.
Thank you very much.
Well, how about a slow walk around the block? Look, lady, I'm a big boy.
And I gotta tell you something.
I don't need any sympathy from someone such as yourself.
You caught me on a bad day, that's all.
You know, it could have been real good.
It could have been the best thing that ever happened to you.
I'm talking about Sincere human affection.
I'm not incapable of that, Andy.
You know, it might come as a surprise to you, but even a whore has a personal life.
I was hoping maybe you'd wanna be part of mine.
Do you, uh, do you like, uh, baseball? Not especially.
Hot dogs, beers.
I got these two tickets to a game tonight.
I'd love to.
If we're lucky, maybe the rain will hold off.

Lieutenant? I heard a noise.
Isn't it silly To have a nightmare after getting the good news.
Postoperative dreaming is very common.
It's the anesthetic on top of the tension.
Would you like to talk about it? Sometimes it helps.
Well, I was back on hill 317.
That's in Vietnam.
It was night, a flare had gone up, and I was standing in the light Fully exposed, as it were.
Scared to death.

Me? Do you think it's going to rain? Can I get you anything? Oh.
Well, I guess I'd better get back to the desk.
Nurse wulfawitz.
You touch me to the core.
I'm sorry if I'm being forward, but I found it impossible to keep from thinking about you Since you first walked into this room.

Oh, my.
Come here.
I've been thinking.
You know what I'd like to do? Enlighten me.
I'd like to secure a night's lodging at, say, the barton arms, take a nice leisurely bath, order up some room service, then slip between a set of crisp, cool sheets and ride out the storm.
Sounds like a wonderful idea.
