NYPD Blue s01e16 Episode Script

A Sudden Fish

NARRATOR: Previously on NYPD Blue: I haven't had sex sober in 20 years.
You're not scaring me off, Andy.
I should probably go.
I mean, maybe you're not even interested.
I'm interested.
We can't see each other romantically if you're back with your wife.
When I asked you to help - you made it personal.
- I was out of line.
- I won't let it get like before.
- You shouldn't.
Boy, that is absolutely it with me and the Long lsland Expressway.
I should have my head examined.
I never learn.
Hypothetically, it's 1 2 minutes faster, but that's with no traffic.
When was there no traffic on the L.
? - Do you listen to the traffic reports? - I listen, but they are not current.
And I have to learn the lesson over and over again.
I sucker myself in.
I try and save the minutes, and then I wind up trapped.
- I'm sitting, like it's a parking lot.
- Well, you're here now.
I'm here, but I'm late and I'm aggravated.
I get so aggravated.
DONNA: What's the matter? Gregory? You okay, Greg? You all right? MEDAVOY: I can't catch my breath.
KELLY: Take it easy.
Take it easy.
MEDAVOY: I can't get a breath.
KELLY: You want water? - How about water? SlPOWlCZ: What's wrong? FANCY: He can't breathe.
MARTINEZ: Want EMS? - Like someone's on your chest.
- Forget EMS.
Get that chair.
- We'll go to the hospital.
FANCY: This is Lt.
A detective's having shortness of breath.
- This feels weird.
- Sit down.
- Why walk when you can ride? - We'll take you downstairs.
Let's go.
KELLY: You okay? MEDAVOY: Yeah, well, I can't breathe.
KELLY: Get a chair downstairs.
MEDAVOY: How embarrassing.
MARTINEZ: You're like the sultan of lndia.
MEDAVOY: Don't call my wife.
KELLY: Take it easy, Greg.
- I'll take a few hours personal time.
- Put in a 28 when you get back.
- Thanks.
A Sudden Fish He's being evaluated.
You got that complaint? Here.
If they didn't admit him, that's good, right? SlPOWlCZ: Yeah.
Ernie Dowd, I'm Detective Sipowicz.
- That's a nice set of steps outside.
- The city hasn't put up a ramp yet.
How about we get out of the way over here? Two men entered your apartment and robbed you? About 3 a.
They snatched my good wheelchair, my cash, some other stuff.
They forced entry into your place? They were waiting when I got off the elevator and jumped me from behind.
That wheelchair was electric, cost over $3000.
Took me four years to get it how I wanted.
Where'd you been before you returned to your apartment? - A bar on Seventh and B.
SlPOWlCZ: Gallagher's? - Yeah, across from the veterans center.
- You go there all the time? - All the time.
- Did you see these guys? No, I couldn't see them.
They put a bag over my head.
They tore my place up, tore up the floorboards shoved a sock in my mouth, tipped me over in a corner.
Said if I gave them any trouble, they'd punt me.
You know, like a football.
They find anything when they tore up your floor? Yeah, one of my guns, a.
45 from Vietnam.
- It was valuable.
SERGEANT: ADA Costas, a message.
These are the serial numbers of the frame and motor on my wheelchair.
- Can you call the VA, verify a theft? - Yeah.
SlPOWlCZ: Listen anybody know your place? Where you kept the gun? - Nobody who'd do this.
- You sure? I just said so.
I'll check that bar and run m.
's, robberies with the same pattern.
People who take off gimps? I'll be in touch.
Can you make it out okay? I made it in, I'll make it out.
Great, thanks.
SlPOWlCZ: How's it going? - Want to go over that Ortiz testimony? No, I got that pretty well in mind.
That's not why I came here, although you are the sine qua non of my case.
Well, then, what forsooth would you be here for? I got you something.
- Excuse me.
- Yeah.
- It's for your aquarium.
- Yeah, it's a clown fish.
What's the matter? I wouldn't be comfortable taking that.
You mind telling me why? You don't introduce a sudden fish to an ecology like that.
It's a saltwater fish.
The pet- shop guy said it's fine.
Then he knows my tank better than I do, yeah.
What's wrong, Andy? I don't want my environment thrown out of whack, some sudden new fish.
You don't want me bringing presents.
It makes you nervous.
SlPOWlCZ: Maybe that's right.
Do you wanna pretend we're not dating or we don't know each other? Can you get your money back for the fish? Sure.
I'll tell him the guy I got it for turned out to be an asshole.
KELLY: Morning.
COSTAS: Excuse me.
SlPOWlCZ: Hey.
- How you feeling, Medavoy? - It was an anxiety attack.
It was just stress, you know.
I have to take it easier not let things bother me.
We can cancel that wreath? Boy, that was something, huh? I mean, I couldn't catch my breath.
- Thanks for riding me there, John.
- No problem.
Take it easy, okay? MEDAVOY: Yeah, thanks.
- Listen, Jimmy Wexler called you.
Yeah, I'm gonna do a security job for him.
- You told me he's sick.
- He is.
- I'm bodyguarding his girlfriend.
- All that dough.
Donna, do you think you could make it your business to make sure there's decaffeinated coffee? - Don't you think you should go home? - I really think I'm okay.
You said you were just going to pick up your coat and then go home.
And if you do not do what you promised - I am going to start screaming here.
Donna was at the emergency room.
- Is that right? - I guess they're skating.
MEDAVOY: I'll finish my coffee and go.
- Yeah.
- How you feeling, Greg? - Okay, lieutenant.
- It was only an anxiety attack.
- Good.
Although, if it's okay with you I thought I might take a vacation day, head home.
- Sure.
Stay off the L.
- Absolutely.
That's a vow.
ROBIN: Hey, Johnny.
KELLY: Hey, Robin.
- Come in.
- How's Jimmy? We'll know more from some tests they took.
- Okay.
- I'll get my bag.
All right.
KELLY: Hey, boss.
- Hey, John.
- Hey.
- You interrupted a negotiation.
- Yeah? They just took some kind of blood test, see how far this thing spread.
If that test came back, I'm looking at 1 8 months, pain- free.
- You know my only question? - Hm? - Where do I sign? - Mm.
I've been sitting here, offering the deal to whoever's in charge.
- Well, I hope you get good news.
- Yeah.
I want to take her out a few more times.
- Where's she going? - Bowling with her girlfriends.
I gotta tell you, she's been here for me, hasn't backed up a step.
I told her it's no good being cooped up like this.
I drive her nuts.
I get where I can't stand the pain.
Then the dope they give me, it puts me in left field.
I told her she's gotta go out.
- Hey, Robin.
ROBIN: Be right there.
If I can't watch over her, I want someone I trust doing it.
- You got it.
ROBIN: What? WEXLER: Hey, you.
Take off.
Why do I need a bodyguard? You're the millionaire.
- Anyone goes for her purse, belt him.
- What if I leave my zirconium at home? You could have had as many jewels as any broad.
I know.
All right, well, I'll be home early.
- You take it easy.
- Enjoy.
See you later.
EDIE: Come on, Robin! - Yes! - Yes! You were right.
- Follow- through.
- You should coach bowling.
Teach me that follow- through thing.
Edie, your stroke is fine.
I wouldn't want to screw it up.
- She likes you.
- Yeah? As if you couldn't tell.
- I'll be right back.
- I'll go with you.
If you follow me to the ladies' room, I'm going to yell for a cop.
Detective, like this? - Watch me.
- I'm watching you.
[CHEERING ] A few more boards to the right.
- I'll be right back.
EDIE: Okay.
- Hi.
- Hey.
- Why so glum? You got so quiet-- - Jimmy around? Where else would he be? - Hey.
- Hey, Johnny.
How you feeling? I can still bend steel with my bare hands.
- I'm waiting for the results.
- Yeah.
What are you doing here? I got a problem at work.
They're swamped.
They want me to come back.
These guys, private bodyguards, they're all good.
I can vouch for them.
They're all ex- cops.
- No.
You ain't going anywhere.
- These guys are good.
I asked you to watch her.
Should I make some calls? I'll call the mayor.
- Jimmy, I-- - I contributed big to him.
- I can't watch her right now.
- You got a problem, it'll go away.
Let me make some calls.
Wait a minute.
Wait a minute.
Let me work this out, okay? I can work this out.
- You work it out? - Yeah, let me figure it out.
So earn your money.
What happened last night? Went bowling.
- That's it? - Yeah, she bowled a 1 1 6.
- What happened afterwards? - Came home.
- Didn't go anywhere? - Girlfriends did.
I brought her home.
- She went home? - Yeah.
You know something? I used to ask her to marry me about once a week.
She'd say,"Why would I want to marry you? You give me enough crap now.
" She didn't want anybody to think that she was doing it for the money.
I respect that.
We're having a great time together the way things are so why not just leave things alone? - That's her attitude.
That's her.
- Yeah.
Well, listen, you know, I set up a bank account for her, $ 1 00, 000.
Four years, Johnny, has not taken a penny.
She wouldn't take the diamond earrings either.
Believe me, I'd be satisfied with 1 8 good months.
I could take her out to dinner a few more times.
ROBIN: Here you go.
KELLY: I'm gonna shove off.
- Yeah? KELLY: Yeah.
- You got plans for later? ROBIN: No.
No, but if you want Edie's number-- Edie likes John.
- Is Edie the one with the big tits? ROBIN: Jimmy.
You mind walking me out? We can coordinate the week.
- Yeah.
- Yeah, good.
- Take care of yourself.
Feel better.
- All right, Johnny.
We'll talk later.
We need to talk.
If we're going to do this, we better make some rules.
Your own time is your business, but with me - show Jimmy respect.
- What are you talking about? You at the bowling alley with this other guy.
I never want to lie to him again.
Understand? - It's not what you think.
- Don't do it around me again.
- Fine.
- Okay? Yeah, fine.
He is blackmailing me.
- The guy at the bowling alley? - Yeah.
Yeah, Johnny.
His name is Stan Heywood.
We grew up together.
We even dated a little bit in high school.
A couple of months ago, I ran into him.
We started having coffee and talking on the phone once in a while.
It was good to talk to someone, someone I had something in common with.
You know, Jimmy, he's been sick for so long - and I slept with him one time.
- Tell me about the blackmailing.
Last week, he told me he was in trouble with a bookmaker.
This bookmaker knew about us, and if he didn't pay, Jimmy would know too.
- You know he's lying, right? - I don't know what I know.
I don't know how I could have gotten myself into this.
- It'll kill Jimmy.
- How much does he want? $25, 000.
- Jimmy opened a bank account for you.
- But I never used it.
Withdraw a cashier's check for $ 1 5, 000 and get it to me.
- Wait, he said 25, 000.
- Don't worry.
He's asking for more than he owes.
Get the $ 1 5, 000 check put it in an envelope, and put me together with this scumbag.
SlPOWlCZ: You know a guy by the name of Ernie Dowd? A crippled guy.
- When did he leave the other night? - Maybe 2 in the morning.
- Did he leave with anyone? - That's really not my business.
This guy got robbed.
Somebody set him up.
I wanna know who he keeps company with.
- Why don't you ask him? - Because I'm asking you.
You serve drunks here.
That's illegal.
You want a summons for that? You want the state liquor people here checking your liqueurs for tiny bugs? SlPOWlCZ: I wanna talk to you, Chicky.
- Who are you? What about? - Come on, just get in the car.
- Oh, man.
Do you know Ernie Dowd? It's a crime to date disabled veterans? You don't date.
You're for sale.
You got a record.
Those guys wouldn't be getting any at all.
This isn't a conversation about hooking.
Dealing with gimps ain't easy.
You can't get the plumbing to work-- Shut up! Just shut up! We are talking about you telling some thieving pricks about what's in a guy's apartment.
- I don't know what you're talking about.
- You do.
You told these guys Ernie Dowd had some stuff hidden in his apartment's floorboards.
- This is great.
- You want to try Alaska? You wanna bang Eskimos for whale sandwiches? Because I will put you on ice.
Now, you tell me who you talked to! I'll give you their names, but this didn't come from me.
- How you feeling today, detective? - Much better, Donna.
Listen I didn't thank you how I should have yesterday.
Going through all that with me at the hospital.
It's okay.
What'd your wife say when you told her what happened? Not too much, you know.
Did you talk with her about taking walks? Yeah, we may do that.
You didn't tell her.
I didn't want to worry her.
Besides, it turned out to be nothing.
What happened yesterday wasn't nothing.
The doctor said I should take the treadmill test but he doesn't think there's a problem.
What the doctor said was, you're under extreme stress, you need to relax and he suggests taking long walks after work.
Yeah, yeah.
Look, I'm okay.
I'm fine.
- Detective.
- Thanks.
My boss is leaving town.
He wants to hear your prep on the Ortiz testimony.
- He'll come here if necessary.
- Yeah, all right.
Tomorrow at 2:00? Tomorrow at 2.
Is Stan Heywood there? Stan, John Kelly.
I'm Robin's friend.
I got something for you.
Whenever you want me to drop it by.
You know the Bowlmor Lanes? Okay.
I'll see you there in a while.
- What's up? - I'm going to roust a couple guys.
Well, let me cancel this.
I'll go with you.
- I'll take Martinez.
- Andy, it's no problem.
Don't worry, I'll take him.
Those guys who took off that Vietnam vet? He's crippled.
They left him lying there.
- Let me go with you.
- No, I'll take the kid.
You gonna be all right? - Yeah.
- All right.
I'll see you later.
HEYWOOD: John Kelly? Stan Heywood.
Sit down, Stan.
Why did you pick this place to meet? Well, I wanted a place you'd be familiar with.
- Can I get some coffee, please? WAITRESS: Sure.
- Thank you.
WAITRESS: You're welcome.
You don't know how I've been waiting for this.
Listen, you see Robin before I do, tell her I really appreciate it.
- Are you listening to me, Stan? - Yeah.
Because you need to be very clear about something.
Go ahead.
This is not the beginning of anything.
This is the end.
Got no argument here.
Look, I don't know what Robin told you about this but I made a couple mistakes, reference to some gambling.
Believe me, I learned my lesson.
I swear, Stan Heywood gambles no more.
I swear to you, I really appreciate Robin helping me out like this.
You finished? - Yeah.
- I'm a cop, Stan.
- Oh, God.
- The only reason I don't bust you-- - I made a couple mistakes-- - I understand.
Things happen.
I won't pop you, because I haven't looked inside that envelope.
If I were to find money in there, I'd pop you.
So forget whatever you're thinking.
You've committed a crime.
If you ever approach Robin again, I will put you in jail.
You understand me? Straight to Rikers.
Get out of here.
MARTINEZ: All right, line up here.
ERNIE: The guys who robbed me are there? They'll speak.
Give me a number if you recognize a voice.
- How did you find out about them? - Police work.
Ready? Yeah.
All right, let's go.
"Stay in the corner and behave.
" "Stay in the corner and behave.
" - "Stay in the corner and behave.
" - Hold on a minute.
Okay, go on.
"Stay in the corner and behave.
" - "Stay in the corner and behave.
" - Yes.
Number five.
Ask him to laugh and say, "Or we'll punt you like a football.
" Number five, laugh and say, "Or we'll punt you like a football.
" "We'll punt you like a football.
" I can't pick anybody out.
Is that all of them? Number six.
- "Stay in the corner and behave.
" - No.
Are you not lD'ing these guys, because you're afraid of them? - I'm not afraid.
- You'll take care of this on your own? - Did Chicky give me up to these guys? - Which guys? I don't recognize anybody's voice.
Don't make any mistakes here or do anything stupid.
Don't tell me how to live my life.
- Cut them loose.
- All right.
OFFICER: All right, this way out.
MARTINEZ: Let's go.
[DOOR OPENS] - Hey, Greg.
- Hey, John.
KELLY: How you feeling? MEDAVOY: Okay.
You know, all right.
- Could I talk to you for a minute? - Sure.
John, when you got separated, did you give that a lot of thought? Did you have it pretty well worked- out, what you were going to do? - It was her call.
- It was Laurie's idea? Yeah.
For me, you marry, you marry for life.
Me too.
You know, that's exactly me too.
But when it happened I was so busy being pissed off and hurt, I wasn't listening.
She was trying to tell me why she wanted to leave.
But you know what? She was right.
- We were miserable together.
- Yes, I kind of feel that way myself you know, Marie and I.
See a couple of months ago, we had this big set- to and I moved out for a couple of days.
And I just found that-- I just couldn't imagine being separated.
But I think I gotta really try to imagine it even with the kids, because we're really unhappy.
I'm not telling you it's easy.
It's not.
I'm not having a great time.
With you, there were no kids involved.
That's true, and I do miss her.
But the interesting thing is, I found out a lot about myself.
I mean, it doesn't make you happy.
Divorce doesn't make you happy.
But in a weird way, it's made me eligible to be happy more than I ever have been in my life.
Does that make sense? Yeah.
I don't know if that will help you or what, but.
It helps a lot.
- Thanks, John.
- Yeah.
[COUGHING ] You gotten the cold from hell yet? - Maybe after we've spent time together.
- Let's get through this.
- They'll hit us hard on probable cause.
- Let's do it.
On October 7, did you have occasion to arrest Julio Ortiz? - I did.
COSTAS: Tell us the circumstances.
We had a search warrant authorizing us to look for controlled substances.
On what basis had you sought the warrant? lnformation from a reliable informant, Joseph Gonzales.
What transpired when you reached Mr.
Ortiz's place? We knocked.
We identified ourselves as police officers.
After 1 0 seconds, we forced entry and found Mr.
Ortiz standing in his toilet trying to flush I don't think you mean to say Mr.
Ortiz was standing in his toilet bowl.
He was standing in his bathroom, flushing the cocaine.
What did you do at that time? SlPOWlCZ: We prevented him from destroying evidence gave him his rights, arrested him.
Ortiz has stated that you broke down his door without warning.
No, we identified ourselves, and then we gave him time to open the door.
So you made no surprise moves to throw the ecology of Mr.
Ortiz's apartment out of whack? - Did I miss something? - Yeah, me getting my balls squeezed.
That'll be all.
Thanks for cooperating.
[BUREAU CHIEF SNEEZES] What's wrong? He found out.
- I got your message.
WEXLER: You got my message? Get in.
KELLY: What's the matter? I know about the 1 5 grand.
Did you think they weren't going to call me about that? My accountant called me.
The bank called him right away.
What do you know about this guy, Stan-- ? Whatever his name is.
Why are you putting John in the middle of this? - It has nothing to do with him.
- Shut up.
I'm asking him.
I gave him the envelope, because she didn't wanna see him.
WEXLER: Ever seen him before? - This guy is a bug.
He's not the type you'd remember.
You people must think I'm too sick to notice 1 5 grand.
I still know what's going on around here.
The cancer's spread all over.
My liver, my spine.
I'll get maybe a couple of months to live.
- What? A couple of months? - A couple of months! That's the report I got! That's what I got! And then, John I get called about this check.
Do you understand now about the check, Jimmy? She gave it to him for what? High school dues? Because he owed money to a bookmaker.
WEXLER: So suddenly, she gave it to him because they were in the high school yearbook together.
- You want some soup? - I don't care.
I don't care.
Johnny was she sleeping with him? If I'd have seen something like that, I would tell you.
You think that maybe he was just an old friend? That's all there was? We didn't talk.
He didn't seem impressive.
I handed him an envelope.
- He wasn't? - No.
He's gone and he knows not to come back.
You know, that would be just like her.
You see, you know, always looking to help someone.
I'm dying, John.
- You okay? - Yeah.
It's gonna be okay about this guy, so forget about it.
- I let Jimmy down.
- No, you didn't.
He's gonna die now - and he thinks I don't love him.
- Listen to me, he knows you love him.
And all he wanted was a little more time, where it didn't hurt so bad.
And he's gonna get it.
WEXLER: Robin? Yeah? WEXLER: You got my soup? KELLY: Go ahead, you'll be fine.
Yeah, Jimmy, just a sec.
[HELICOPTER BLADES WHlRRlNG ] SlPOWlCZ: What's up? - Guy in a wheelchair.
- He's got a gun on four hostages.
- I know this guy.
Let me talk to him.
- Wait for the negotiating team.
- You sure the guy's going to wait? SERGEANT: Get him a vest.
OFFICER: Got it.
Ernie Dowd! It's Detective Sipowicz! - I'm coming in, Ernie! ERNIE: I got no beef with you.
We'll be done in here in a while, then everyone can come in.
You got no problem with the bartender.
Why don't you let the bartender out? Yeah, go ahead.
- Put this on my tab.
SlPOWlCZ: Come on.
I'm coming in, Ernie.
You were over there, weren't you? Couple inches the other way, I'd be just like you.
You gotta cut this out, man.
They got guns out there.
They don't know these three are assholes.
- Push him on the floor.
- Talk to me.
Do it now.
Push him on the floor.
- You, kick him like a football! - My feet are tied.
Ernie, talk to me! Talk to me, Ernie.
Hey, pal.
Come on, talk to me.
Talk to me.
I come in here after I saw you in the station house.
I tell Chicky, "Hey, there's no hard feelings.
" You know, it's worth a thousand to get my wheelchair back.
She gets me in touch with her friends.
SlPOWlCZ: I don't care what happens to them.
But if they're hurt, you'll wind up either dead or in jail.
- So what? - So your room is bad, jail's worse.
- Well, that leaves dead.
- No, I don't want that.
I've seen too many good men go down.
Do you want a drink? It's on the house.
I can't, Ernie.
I'm a drunk.
Everybody's got their battles, Ernie.
ERNIE: Push him on the floor.
- Ernie.
Tell him you're going to punt him! SlPOWlCZ: Ernie, listen to me.
- What? - Was there anything good? - What do you mean? If you stop now and nobody gets hurt, you won't have to go away.
But before any of this, was there anything good in your life? Yeah, I had my chair set up how I wanted.
Chicky and me had some things worked out.
All right, you got your chair back, and I'm going to put Chicky in jail but I never noticed any shortage of whores in town.
Now, come on, Ernie.
What do you say, huh? Come on, Ernie.
Come on.
Just take it easy.
Just relax now.
Come on.
That's it.
And he has to absolutely speak to me? Okay, I'll be right down.
KELLY: You okay? - Yeah, thanks.
How you doing? No fun busting this guy.
I think he's gonna get ROR'd.
- The booking's clear.
- Thanks.
DONNA: Detective, here's your file.
- I gotta take you to get fingerprinted.
- Thanks for the coffee.
- No problem.
Good luck.
Can't push the chair.
- Hey.
LAURA: Hey, Johnny.
KELLY: How was the ski trip? LAURA: Oh, yeah, it was fun.
- You knock them dead? - I never got you out there.
That was always a big regret for me too.
- Does Greg Medavoy seem off his game? - Why? He seems a little depressed.
- Yeah, he's got a domestic situation.
- Oh, yeah? Do you want to go out for dinner? - Sure, what's the occasion? - No occasion.
- Okay, your call.
- Tonight? - Fine.
- I'll talk to you later.
See you later.
Martinez will be with you at arraignment.
We think you'll get a recognizance release.
He'll see you home.
It's better if you carry me down.
Yeah, the chair nearly went over coming up.
Let's pick him up.
Jack, grab this chair.
We'll meet you downstairs.
All right, there we go.
You okay? I'm getting lots of experience at this.
First, Detective Medavoy, now him.
SlPOWlCZ: You holding up okay? ERNIE: Yeah.
- Jack, just set the chair there.
JACK: All right.
SlPOWlCZ: Thanks.
- No problem.
SlPOWlCZ: All right.
James, you want to give me a second here? Sure, let me get the paperwork.
You okay? Yeah.
You got my card, you know, if you feel like talking.
You feel like talking? I can't remember most of it, being over there.
I don't want to remember it either.
SlPOWlCZ: Good luck.
Counselor, can I have a word with you in private? I want us to be square about that fish.
Andy, I don't think we're going to make it.
You know, I got this one Pseudochromis a pain in the ass fish of all time.
If I move a piece of coral two inches, he won't eat, he don't socialize.
If I change his food mix a bit he acts like you're a heinous criminal.
- This fish aggravates me so much-- - What's the point? The point is that someone has to ask themself: "Is the fish worth it?" That's what it comes down to.
Is it worth the aggravation, his pain in the ass ways? You're not a fish.
You are a person, and you can talk.
I should have expressed myself better.
I should have said: "It makes me nervous, you giving me something.
" And,"I'll get used to it, though.

I've learned a lot too.
