NYPD Blue s02e13 Episode Script

Travels With Andy

NARRATOR: Previously on NYPD Blue: Tell Billy for me, he can't come to my place anymore with that blue-barred cock.
I breed birds, racing pigeons.
So if you don't mind me saying, I enjoy working with you.
No.
I enjoy working with you too.
Will you marry me, Sylvia? Yes.
Hey, morning.
MEDAVO Y: Hey, how's it going, Andy? - Good.
Sylvia made some Greek stuff for dinner.
Usually gives me an upset stomach.
- I sailed right through it.
- Hey.
That's a good sign.
- Good morning, Greg.
MEDAVO Y: Morning.
- Hi.
SIPOWICZ: Hey.
You're up and out so early.
You didn't have court? No, I met Papa for coffee and yogurt.
I told him.
- How'd he take it? - He's thrilled.
So he took it okay? He's already planning the engagement party.
Theo Janni, it's my uncle, will perform the thaktilithia.
- The which? - It's the blessing of the rings.
He blesses our commitment before the family icon of Saint Sophia.
And the wedding Oh, Andy, an orthodox wedding is so beautiful.
- Yeah, I'm sure it is.
- You need a Koumbaro, like a best man.
Each of us gets to wear a crown of white flowers.
And the incense and the choir My father wants to meet with us so he can get an early jump.
Sylvia, before we get too far into this, can I say one word? Sure.
- Maryland.
- Maryland? You and I can get married real quick in Maryland.
Oh, yeah.
You're serious? Lt'd be nice and private, just us.
Like some sailor running off with a hooker? It doesn't have to be that.
You don't know what this means to me.
It means a lot to me too but do we have to make some production out of it with flowers? I don't think of it as an ordeal.
And I don't wanna take my vows in some marriage mill that smells like booze and cigarette smoke.
I have to go.
I was just looking to provide another angle on things.
Well, you certainly did.
Travels With Andy Hey, what's the status? We got two males and a female DOA in the kitchen.
The female's white.
One of the men looks Hispanic.
This is Mr.
Bagley.
He's the day manager.
He found the bodies when he opened up this morning.
- Okay, thanks.
[HELICOPTER BLADES WHIRRING] One shot each in the back of the head.
Looks like they were kneeling.
Got a receipt from Jack's Jewelry, no address.
There's some scrape marks on the back of his neck.
They've been dead at least four hours.
Shell casings from a.
45.
That thing's got a loud bark.
Maybe somebody heard it.
I'll notify CSU and start the canvass with Medavoy.
- The day manager's out there.
I got him.
MEDAVO Y: All set.
Let's go.
MAN 1: Fifteen Boise, looks okay.
MAN 2: Fifteen Boise, go ahead.
MAN 1: Check with base if - Mr.
Bagley? - Yeah.
SIMONE: I'm Detective Simone.
- I just can't believe this.
I mean, to murder three people.
There's never business here at night.
Most there could've been is 120, maybe.
Let's go talk over here.
What can you tell me about the victims, Mr.
Bagley? Arnulfo was the bus boy.
He was a real hard worker.
- Got a last name on Arnulfo? - The green card thing was kind of shaky.
He got paid cash.
- What about the others? - Angelo D'Lia and Cindy Bloom.
He was the night manager and chef.
Took courses during the day, hotel management.
- He's got any family? - No, I got it that Angelo was a homo or just a non-sexual guy.
- And Cindy Bloom? - Just a real nice kid.
Still in school, hard worker, lived at home.
This is terrible.
I mean, what kind of world is this? A kid like that! I'm gonna need addresses and phone numbers on D'Lia and Bloom.
I got them inside.
I mean, boy, she was a sweet kid too.
Her parents are gonna be very upset by this.
Can you imagine? And think about the murdered people themselves, getting shot.
- That is a tough break.
- Yeah.
- Hey, James.
MARTINEZ: Yeah? We had an attempted rape called in.
She's over at Bellevue.
The cop who took the report has a name of a bus driver who may have seen the guy.
- Why don't you work it with Adrienne? - Sure.
- Let's do it.
LESNIAK: Okay.
Andy, these are Cindy's parents Albert and Estelle Bloom.
This is Detective Sipowicz.
Sipowicz and I are working the case.
We should all go in this room here and talk.
Can we get you something to drink? Coffee or tea? No, no, nothing for us at all.
ALBERT: I didn't want Cindy working there.
All types come in there, all types.
Well, it was only part-time.
Have you come up with any idea who might have done this, detective? It was a robbery.
We're trying to determine if the perpetrator might have had a relationship with one of the victims.
Can you think of anyone your daughter knew who might be capable of doing something like this? Well, there is someone, not really a boyfriend but someone that she used to see.
He was a rough type.
He was a rough type.
We weren't fond of him.
We heard once he'd been in trouble with the police.
ESTELLE: Actually she stopped seeing him about a month ago.
SIPOWICZ: You know his name? - No, he still phoned her.
I answered once.
It was him.
His name is Harry Benson.
Wait.
There, that's him there.
I kept that picture because it was so good of Cindy.
- You think he did this? SIMONE: We'll look into it, Mr.
Bloom.
Do you have any idea where we might be able to find him? He's a mechanic, and he works for - Myerson's? ALBERT: Yeah.
ESTELLE: Myerson's Muffler Shop in Long Island City.
It's so horrible to think he might have done this.
- You here about the rape victim? - Yeah.
You got a name on that bus driver? His shift's over in two hours.
He said he'd stop at the squad.
- All right, good.
- That's her doctor there.
LESNIAK: Thanks.
- Excuse me, doctor.
- Yeah? I'm Detective Martinez.
This is Detective Lesniak.
- Paul! - Adrienne, hey.
- You know each other? - We were friends in high school.
You don't look any different.
You look great.
Thanks.
- I'm Paul Druzinski.
- Pleasure.
We're here on the Eunice Stevens assault.
Yeah, well, she's in pretty bad shape.
Her blood pressure was 220 over 110 when they brought her in.
Minimum, she's got a concussion.
We'll have to check if her head injuries are more extensive.
- You do a rape kit? - Yeah, no evidence of penetration.
- Can we talk to her? - Keep it short.
She's in the last cubicle.
- Would you get that rape kit? - Sure, no problem.
MARTINEZ: Thanks.
- All right.
Thanks.
Why don't you take this one, all right? Mrs.
Stevens, I'm Detective Lesniak.
This is Detective Martinez.
Oh, I didn't see him real good.
That's okay.
Just tell us what you remember.
Anything you remember will help.
I was walking home, and he came up.
And he pushed me from behind.
Then he started hitting me.
He was so strong.
He tore off my stockings, and I grabbed my spray from my bag.
And I sprayed him in the face.
- You carry Mace? - Yeah, I sprayed him, and he ran off.
Did you get a look at him? His hair color, features, tattoos? Did you get a look at him? His hair color, features, tattoos? No, no, no.
You see, he had these nylons over his face.
It was horrible.
It was like a mask.
But I did see his hands.
He was a black man.
- Do you remember how he was dressed? - He was wearing a red and black baseball jacket.
[GASPS] Why would he wanna do this to me? MARTINEZ: Do you have any family you want notified? We can have them brought over if you want.
Thank you, no.
What about friends, neighbors? Mrs.
Krasnow moved to Las Vegas.
I don't know anybody anymore.
Well, okay.
You rest up now, Mrs.
Stevens.
We'll keep you posted.
- Okay.
- Feel better, all right? The complaint report didn't say anything about Mace.
Maybe someone took off with it, but I'll check again with the cop.
- Okay, here's the kit.
- Yeah, thanks.
- How do you think she's gonna do? - We'll know a lot more in 24 hours.
Too bad we see each other under these circumstances.
- It's good to see you.
DRUZINSKl: Yeah.
Well, we better get going, all right? LESNIAK: Bye.
- See you.
You know, once in a while, they let me out of here.
- You wanna get together sometime? - Sure.
Why don't you give me your phone number.
- All right, I'll call you.
- Okay.
I talked to Benson's boss.
He said he left for the day.
He gave me an address in the precinct.
I called.
I got the machine.
Let's go out there.
Maybe we'll get lucky and run into him.
Let's go out there.
Maybe we'll get lucky and run into him.
Kind of a long shot.
I feel like taking a ride.
We got nothing else right now.
Okay, I'll take a ride.
- So you think this guy raped an old lady? - What did you see from your bus? See, I knew this guy had done something.
That's why I radioed in when he ran in front of the bus.
He had this look on his face like he'd just done something.
The man who ran, what did he look like? - He was an Indian.
- Indian? Like Cochise or from India? - From India.
- He wasn't black? You got this brother in custody, and you're trying to put him with this? - That's not it.
We don't have anybody.
LESNIAK: Just the victim's description.
I look at people eight hours a day, and I know my races.
Dude I saw was an Indian.
You mind? LESNIAK: What was he wearing? - He was wearing a red and black jacket.
- What kind of jacket? - Like a baseball jacket.
- You see where he went? - No, I got a schedule to maintain.
MARTINEZ: Will you look at photos? GLOVER: If they're Indian photos.
Dude I saw wasn't no brother.
Maybe we are wasting our time.
Let's give him another 10 minutes.
Yeah, 10 minutes.
What is up? Is there something wrong, Andy? No.
- I had this thing with Sylvia.
- Like an argument? I think it was more like a disagreement kind of a thing.
SIMONE: Just nothing major then? I don't think so, no.
No.
Maybe the guy went around the back, huh? I'll go check with the doorman there.
SIPOWICZ: You seen this guy around? BOB: The guy's an asshole.
Everybody's got a little good in them.
You seen him or not? Yeah, the guy's right there behind you.
SIPOWICZ: Hey.
Hey.
Hey, hey, hey! You don't wanna make me chase you! Bobby! BENSON: Hey, what's going on here? SIMONE: Spread them! SIMONE: So, what were you running for? - I had no idea you guys were cops.
If I knew that, there's no way I would have taken off.
I got nothing to hide.
- Have a seat.
BENSON: Sure.
So how long were you seeing Cindy Bloom? So that's what this is about? She was one of three people who were murdered.
That's what it's about.
God.
- What happened? She was shot? - We didn't say that, Benson.
I just can't believe this.
When was the last time you saw her? Oh, so now it's me? Have you been talking to her parents? - Why would her parents say anything? - Well, I'm not Jewish, right? They didn't hide how they felt about me.
But I didn't hold that against Cindy.
- Cindy still called me.
It wasn't all over.
SIMONE: So you still seeing her? No, I didn't wanna cause her any hassles.
Where did you sleep last night? At my place, alone.
If I was involved here, I'd have some kind of story for you.
You ever been in trouble with the police? Five years ago I was in on a burglary, auto parts store.
I've been clean since.
Look, I never did this or anything like this.
I felt for Cindy.
That's the God's honest truth.
Those Indians must be a pretty law-abiding race.
Not much here.
Take the time and look at all of them, Mr.
Glover.
Yeah.
[HELICOPTER BLADES WHIRRING] - This could be him.
- Could be? Yeah.
This guy's wearing a T-shirt.
My guy had a jacket, made him bulkier.
- Rajiv Patel.
- I'll run him through BCI.
Your apartment, where you were sleeping, any neighbors see you come in, leave the next day? - Maybe.
I don't know.
SIPOWICZ: Hear anything that night? - Music, arguments, anything like that? - No.
SIPOWICZ: Nothing? Well, I'm not surprised.
We got a witness who picked your picture out of a photo array who puts you getting out of a car a block away from that coffee shop on the night of the murders.
- You got a witness who says that? - That's what I said.
We got a witness.
- You got a witness who says that? - That's what I said.
We got a witness.
So the road forks for you right here, Benson.
You start telling us the truth or we are gonna make it really hard for you.
You probably know from being a low-life turd if you start talking too late to us, we don't care anymore.
SIMONE: So, what's it gonna be? I didn't do it.
I didn't want you thinking maybe I did.
That's why I said I wasn't out there.
Cindy and me, we've still been seeing each other.
Her parents didn't want it.
So you were out there.
You saw her that night.
I saw them all.
Cindy, that bus boy, whatever his name is that fag there, D'Lia.
I had coffee with her.
I left around 12.
- You left them dead.
- No.
I'm telling you there was nobody there when I left.
The place was empty.
[KNOCKING] Can I talk to you guys outside? Got a call from a police chief upstate, a place called Cannonsville.
They got a local guy in custody on a gun charge.
Found deposit slips and cancelled checks from the Sunrise Diner in his car.
He'd seen something on the news and called down.
- I want you up there.
- How long will they have him? He'll be arraigned tomorrow afternoon.
You gotta be there by mid-morning.
- How far away is this place? - They said it's a four-hour drive.
Can someone sit with Benson until we get back? Yeah, sure.
We got a problem on the Stevens case.
The bus driver gave you a photo ID.
The problem is I run his name, and Patel's record was sealed when the charges were dismissed.
- The photo shouldn't be on file.
- We'd lose the ID in a Wade hearing.
I spoke to the cop who made the collar.
Guy had the same m.
o.
He was busted for assaulting an elderly woman, bruised her pretty badly.
- Later, she dropped the complaint.
- She didn't wanna admit it was a rape.
- We got an address on Patel? MARTINEZ: Yeah.
Get surveillance photos of him.
See if your witness makes an ID.
- Okay.
- Yeah.
Detective, Paul Druzinski says you're expecting him.
- Thanks, Donna.
- Didn't waste any time, huh? - Hey.
LESNIAK: Hey.
- How are you? - Fine.
DRUZINSKl: Hey, detective.
- Hey.
- Am I interrupting? I can wait.
- We're talking about the Stevens case.
- How is Mrs.
Stevens doing? - Not as improved as we hoped but I'm still optimistic.
You ready? - Yeah.
You know, I think I've been in a police station twice in my life.
I think I talked to a doctor without being billed twice in my life.
I'll tell you what, I won't bill you if you don't arrest me.
- You got a deal.
- Good to see you again.
- Have a great time, you two.
- Thanks.
Good night.
Good night, Donna.
- Hi.
- Hi.
I'm gonna have to wake up around 3 a.
m.
Simone and I are going upstate.
Place called Cannonsville.
You ever hear of it? Me neither.
I should be back tomorrow afternoon.
Sylvia.
Uh lf If I take a shower when I get up it's not gonna wake you up, is it? - No.
I can shower now.
Maybe that'd be better.
It doesn't matter to me when you take a shower.
Maybe we should talk a little more about this wedding thing.
There's nothing to talk about and I'm very tired.
Well, good night.
SIMONE: God, it's beautiful out here.
Hey, how about this temperature? I mean, what is that? Global warming? El NiƱo? You realize we haven't seen another car in 15 minutes? Yeah, these farm roads are great, right? There's no traffic.
I don't know.
I think we should've stayed on the thruway.
See, it's this thick, red line here all the way through.
This road, it's not even on here.
The guy on the phone said this is the shortest route.
Pop the radio on.
They got nothing on the radio in places like this.
I'm gonna pull over here.
Take a little break.
SIPOWICZ: Hey, get out of here.
Shoo, go on, beat it.
Take off.
Get out of here.
SIMONE: Come on, Andy, give me a hand.
[ZIPS] What are you doing? - What's this? SIMONE: Pigeons.
I know, but what were they doing in the car? These are my racing homers.
These are my racing homers.
Thought it'd be a good chance to give them a little cross-country workout.
Go on, grab one.
Grab a pigeon? - Do they bite? SIMONE: No.
Just grab it like that.
There you go.
Hey, you know what to do, huh? - See you in Brooklyn.
- Go on, beat it, beat it.
Get out of here.
- So they're going home? - Yeah.
- They'll be there in a couple hours.
- Lucky them.
Come on, let's go.
This stuff stinks.
Come on, let's go.
This stuff stinks.
DISPATCHER: Hi.
- Hey.
You fellas made real good time.
- Sam Burns.
- Bobby Simone, good to meet you.
- Andy Sipowicz.
- Come on into the office.
- Did you take that turnoff on Route 12? SIMONE: Yeah.
You go through some pretty country that way, don't you? We're not here to see the country.
BURNS: Well, that's a shame.
We're pretty proud of this area.
You ought to see it in the fall.
Vermont has nothing on us.
Chief, we're on a tight schedule here.
Could we just go over what you got? I understand this guy got picked up on a gun charge.
No, actually, he was picked up for having no taillights on his pickup truck.
My man spotted a sawed-off shotgun sticking out from under the seat.
Actually this is the stuff that I think links him to your case.
Deposit receipts from the Sunrise Diner.
I heard about those killings on the radio.
You did some good work here.
These deposit slips put him in the Sunrise Diner.
I wish they were dated.
- He make any statements? - The boys from Chester have been with him for a couple hours about a robbery-homicide of their own.
I figured I'd give them until, what, noon, huh? Look, we don't have a lot of time here.
We got people waiting for an answer.
- Can't you give us a shot at him now? - No, it wouldn't be fair.
I mean, these boys got here at daybreak.
First come, first serve.
Hey.
DISPATCHER: For the local paper.
You boys are big news up here.
Yeah, we'll be back in a couple hours.
I gotta make a quick call.
Can I use your phone? - Yeah.
SIPOWICZ: Two hours, huh? You know, as we came into town, I saw a couple antique stores.
- It's busy.
What did you say? - Maybe we should check them out.
- Antique stores? For what? - Quilts, Royal Daulton, Hummels.
We could find some great stuff up here.
We gotta kill some time, Andy.
Hummels.
Oh, lieutenant, you know how I can reach Sipowicz and Simone? Yeah, the Cannonsville Police Station upstate.
What do you got? You know that case they caught.
I traced a receipt we found on the young Hispanic victim to a jeweler on Canal Street.
The jeweler remembers selling this Arnulfo a gold cross with an inscription on it.
He gave me a photo out of the catalog.
Good, have Donna fax that to Andy and Bobby.
- Cannonsville? - Yeah.
- Lieutenant? - Come on.
We set up a surveillance on Patel.
Here's some photos.
He's wearing a red and black jacket like the victim said.
We tried a photo array on the bus driver.
- He picked Patel out, no problem.
- When can Mrs.
Stevens view a lineup? - We're waiting for the doctor to call.
- The bus driver puts him at the scene.
- That's enough to bring him in.
FANCY: Yeah.
FANCY: Yeah, Stanley, how you doing? I was trying - Hey, what's the scoop? - I got you the extra, extra pepperoni.
Do you know how long I've been here? We gotta keep you here pending what our other detectives are looking at in trying to clear you.
- How does it look for me? - Well, I can't really get into it but it shouldn't be too long.
- But you think I should be optimistic? - Can't hurt.
I'll check on some more magazines for you.
Well, when she gets in, tell her I'll call back around 1.
No, it's not an emergency, but I'm gonna be delayed.
No, there's no place I can be reached.
Yeah.
Thanks.
Anything in the case that you see, just let me know, and I'll take it out.
- She's in court.
- Check this out, man.
- Beautiful cameos.
- Yeah? I don't really know about those things there.
My wife, she really liked cameos.
I don't know about Sylvia.
I mean, what she'd like.
- Something you ought to find out.
- Yeah, but we're very different.
You know, what she likes and what I like.
We're getting married.
That's great, Andy.
Congratulations, man.
Yeah, only she's mad at me now, and I'm stuck up here.
- It's not good to count on anything.
- What's she mad about? The wedding.
She wants this big Greek deal where I wear flowers on my head.
You know, I was thinking of something more quick and private.
The whole thing might be off.
BURNS: Dorothy.
DOROTHY: Morning.
- How you doing? DOROTHY: Fine.
Stopped by the Quick Mart.
Willie said he thought he saw you two wander over.
Dorothy's got some nice doodads here.
Yeah.
Those boys from Chester, they done? Yeah, they just wrapped up.
That's what I came to tell you.
SIMONE: All right, great.
SIPOWICZ: I'll catch up.
- Thank you very much.
DOROTHY: You're welcome.
- Over here.
DONNA: Detective Lesniak Dr.
Druzinski called.
He says it's urgent.
- Thanks.
I'll meet you in there.
MARTINEZ: Yeah, okay.
PATEL: How long I have to be here? - Shouldn't be long.
- Just wanna clear a few things up.
- I have an attorney.
Mr.
Shastri.
I could call him.
As I explained to you, Mr.
Patel, you have that right.
But then we'll have to wait, and this will take a lot more time.
No, no, I have work to do.
And I know I've done nothing.
- James? - Yeah? - I just spoke with Paul.
- Paul? Dr.
Druzinski.
Mrs.
Stevens had a stroke.
- Bad? - They don't think she's gonna make it and even if she does, she probably can't make an ID.
- You tell Fancy? - Mm-mm.
But we got this guy, Patel, here.
Maybe we can get him to go.
All right.
Okay, so the first thing is, Mr.
Patel where were you between Those hours I would've been in my office.
We have a problem with that.
We know you were near 10th and C.
You were seen running away from something.
Actually, I was near there.
As I recall, it was around 9:30.
I installed a sound card at a customer's place of business.
As I was walking to catch the bus, I heard some yelling and screaming.
I thought it was a crazy person with a gun.
I've seen people with guns in that area, so I ran.
We're gonna need the name of that customer.
We're gonna need the name of that customer.
Yes, his name is Mr.
Jaday.
He will tell you.
I should've told you this right away.
I thought Well, I don't know what I thought.
You know what I think, Rajiv? I think you're lying.
You assaulted that old lady over there, tried to rape her.
That is nonsense.
That's crazy.
We got witnesses that'll put you right there.
- We know you've done this before.
- I have no record.
You can check.
- We know about you, Mr.
Patel.
- How can you say such a thing? Where is this woman who accuses me? Let her tell it to my face I did this.
Rajiv, you're only facing an assault charge.
Admit this and with your record being clean, you may get probation.
Otherwise, we do DNA tests.
Do you know what it means if we come after you on rape? Do any test you like.
How can I admit to something I did not do? If you're innocent, let me see your jacket.
Why? I don't have to give you my jacket.
No.
No, you don't.
But if you don't give it to me, I'm sure gonna think you're guilty.
LESNIAK: Nice going, James.
- I'll send this to the lab get it tested for Mace.
If it comes back positive, it'll help, but it won't lock him in.
He don't know that.
SIPOWICZ: When did you get back from New York? RIKER: I haven't been to New York.
We got people who saw you.
I don't care.
I haven't been there.
Bite my ass! One more "bite my ass" from you and you're gonna be gumming your food, douche bag! Hey.
Settle down.
We found deposit slips in your truck from the Sunrise Diner in Manhattan.
- How'd they get there? - I got nothing to say to you.
I got this to say to you: I looked at three people that you shot down like dogs, and I am gonna get you.
Wear that for a week.
How long can you keep this guy in on the gun charge? He goes before the judge tomorrow.
I can ask to make it high, but he'll set bail.
We just got this fax in from your precinct.
Thanks.
I'll give Medavoy a call.
SIMONE: Riker live near here? He lives with his mom and dad out on Route 61.
I can show you on the map.
Come on.
Be right back.
All right, okay.
Hey.
Take it easy, settle down.
SIMONE: Calm down, big fella.
Come on.
[KNOCKING] Hello? Hello, are you Mr.
Riker? Mr.
Riker, I'm Detective Sipowicz.
This is Detective Simone.
- Can we have a few moments? - You got a warrant? They had a warrant.
They didn't find a thing.
No, sir, we're not here to search the premises.
We're just wondering if we could talk.
Okay.
Thank you.
Hi.
How you doing, ma'am? - What's happening with my boy? - He's being interviewed.
Interviewed? That's a new one.
Who by? Oprah or Geraldo? What can you tell us about your son's activities over the last few days? I don't know what you're talking about.
Has he been away or has he been at home? You know, I'm gonna get a lawyer and sue you bastards.
- Why would you be suing us? - For picking on our boy.
He's a good boy.
He helps us out.
SIPOWICZ: How does he help you, ma'am? Money? He can make money whenever he wants.
He knows how to weld.
He buy you that big television set there? - What of it? - Well, he sounds like a really good boy.
- He buy you anything else? - See that microwave in the kitchen? - He gave me that.
SIMONE: Oh, that's nice.
How about personal things, Mrs.
Riker? You know, those kind of things that really warm up a mother's heart? - That cross? - Yeah.
That's nice.
When did he give you that? He gave me this just yesterday.
That's a real beauty, but we're gonna need it.
Oh, no.
Forget it, mister.
My son gave me this.
That is stolen property.
Do you understand that? It was taken during the commission of a crime.
MR.
RIKER: Get the hell out of here! SIPOWICZ: Let's not get carried away.
SIMONE: Get the bat.
- I got it.
I want you to calm down! Calm down! MRS.
RIKER: Oh, Angus! The only reason I'm not locking you up is that you're trying to protect your son.
We're not holding you responsible your good boy is a scumbag.
We're not holding you responsible your good boy is a scumbag.
SIPOWICZ: We're gonna need this, ma'am.
I talked to the lab.
They found traces of Mace on his jacket.
He's it.
That was the hospital.
Mrs.
Stevens is dead.
- Man, that's gonna make it a homicide.
- Mm-hm.
If we tell Patel, he'll lawyer up, and school's out.
Yeah.
There are 50 different kinds of Mace.
The kind Mrs.
Stevens sprayed on her attacker is the same kind we found on your jacket.
It is over, Rajiv.
- I don't know what you're talking about.
MARTINEZ: You want advice? Think how to minimize your time in prison.
Realize you're going, and the question is how long.
Look, maybe you have a problem.
Maybe it's some kind of a sickness.
Maybe you need help.
Give us a statement on this, and you can talk to a doctor.
- Explain about what you've done.
PATEL: I've done nothing.
I think I should call Mr.
Shastri.
- That's his attorney.
- Well, that takes it out of our hands.
But I want you to know we have the evidence to convict you.
Rajiv, start working with us and start helping yourself.
Start telling the truth.
- Did you try to rape Mrs.
Stevens? - No.
God, no.
No.
So, what did you do? Try to rob her? No, no.
I don't need the money.
I earn good money.
I pushed her.
She fell down.
I slap, that's all.
Open hand, like this.
I don't know why I do these things.
But it was nothing.
I don't want to go to prison.
- Lf I am ill, would they put me in prison? - Rajiv why don't you write everything down about the incident with Mrs.
Stevens from the first thought you had about it to when she sprayed you, and you ran.
Try to make us understand exactly what you did.
We're gonna take a ride down to New York.
No, I'm not.
- Get your hands off me.
SIPOWICZ: Keep your mouth shut.
Maybe we'll get you a bottle of Yoo-hoo.
I spoke to our local magistrate.
Convinced him we should drop our weapons charges.
He's yours.
Thanks a lot for your help.
We appreciate everything you've given us.
You should come back sometime.
A week here would do you a lot of good.
[RIKER LAUGHS] - Shut up.
- Thanks.
SIPOWICZ: I'll stick him in the cage.
Start the paperwork.
SIMONE: All right.
- This is wrong.
So is doing it with sheep, but I'm betting you did that too.
- Run him through.
I'll deal with Fancy.
MEDAVO Y: Hey, nice work, pal.
Hey, Greg, you're the man.
The neck-chain tip is what got him.
It's the end of the trail, Riker.
It's your last chance to make a statement cutting some kind of a deal.
Hey, if I ever had the chance to cut anything, I'd cut your damn throat.
You'd cut my throat, huh, scummer? Well, let me tell you something.
Where you're going, everybody you meet is gonna be looking to lay you open or lay you down.
[YELLS] [DOOR OPENS] Where's the other guy? He go for the rubber hose? We've got some new information on the case, Benson.
So you're free to go.
So I waited here all day and night for nothing? Well, we take a triple homicide very seriously here.
And frankly, you looked very right for it.
- But I wasn't.
- No.
Look, we don't like squeezing innocent guys.
But sometimes, it does happen.
So if you ever find yourself in a jam we owe you one.
When I told you I was sorry about Cindy I meant it.
- Yeah.
And I meant what I said about owing you one.
Hey, I vouchered Patel's original statement.
- I was just finishing the DD5.
- Great, thanks.
- Hey, good work on the Patel case.
- Thanks, lieu.
Hey, how about we go have a drink and celebrate? I'm buying.
Can I take a rain check on that? I have plans tonight.
Sure.
I guess it went okay last night with that doctor.
I guess it went okay last night with that doctor.
Yeah, we had some fun.
Kind of renewing a thing you had in high school? Not really.
Paulie and I didn't go out.
I had a boyfriend.
Actually, he dated a girlfriend of mine.
- I see.
- She dumped him for another guy.
- I thought that was a dumb move.
- So now's your chance.
- Who knows? - Yeah.
- I'll see you tomorrow.
- Okay, have fun.
- Thanks.
SIMONE: Nick? Yeah, Bobby.
Yeah? All of them? Great, great.
All right, thanks.
Yeah, I'll be there in a while.
MARTINEZ: Good night, guys.
- All my birds made it back.
That's great.
I'm gonna take off.
I still got some things to settle at home.
Sure, I'll see you tomorrow.
DONNA: Good night, detective.
COSTAS: Did you eat? - Yeah, I'm fine.
COSTAS: Did you eat? - Yeah, I'm fine.
Why don't you sit down? We should talk.
Sylvia, on the wedding, I've given it a lot of thought.
And l Now, I want you to understand what my feelings are.
A big wedding, it's what every girl dreams of.
- It had a special meaning for me, but - No problem, it's what I want too.
No, I overreacted.
We can have a lovely small wedding, maybe up in the country.
No, I was just in the country.
I think your father's got the right idea something big here in the city.
- Are you sure you really want that? - Sure.
I mean, how many chances am I gonna get to wear a crown of flowers? Here.
What's this? Go on, open it.
A cameo.
I love cameos.
I never had one, but I've always wanted one.
How could you have known that? It just seemed like you.
It's, uh It's Aphrodite.
It's the Greek goddess of love.
You know what she's meant to inspire? Specifically? I'll show you.
