NYPD Blue s02e15 Episode Script

Bombs Away

NARRATOR: Previously on NYPD Blue: SIMONE: You'll find the other half of this message when you find the other half of this couple.
Think Webster's back? My daughter is dead.
I have a right to know what you're working on.
SIMONE: Yes, you do, sir.
Whoever it is, I'll give you $ 1 million to kill him.
I guess I was hoping that maybe you'd be interested in seeing me again.
I don't think so.
- How are you? - Harold Rutansky called me.
- No! - You were spying on me? No.
Not spying.
Well, what do you call it, Gregory? You followed me.
It is not your asthma or your rashes or your food allergies.
It's your attitude, Gregory.
- What's wrong with my attitude? - You won't enjoy your life.
So if you don't mind me saying, I enjoy working with you.
No.
I enjoy working with you too.
SIPOWICZ: Hands up! SIMONE: Get up against the wall! - I don't see the connection of my gun.
- It's a match, George.
We matched it to the Webster shootings just like you knew we would.
We got you, George.
- I don't know what to do with myself.
- I know.
There's nothing I can do for her.
Since old lady Chen's gone, that place has gone downhill.
SIMONE: Yeah.
Look at this.
Look, there.
Another button's missing.
Andy, with that pattern, I don't think anybody will notice a missing button.
Who made you the fashion police? Okay.
SIMONE: Come on, I gotta get back.
They're bringing Putnam in for a lineup.
SIMONE: Andy, watch it.
- Hey, damn it! SIPOWICZ: Oh, man! SIMONE: You all right? SIPOWICZ: Yeah.
Let's see if this guy's head's in working order.
Hey! ILLIESCU: It's my fault.
I was distracted.
I was thinking of my problems.
I failed to see the one-way sign.
You must have some kind of problem, huh? I am from Romania.
Illiescu.
Illiescu.
- That's your last name? - You can say that, yes.
Vartan Illiescu.
It doesn't seem to be too bad here.
Your lens is broken.
- I have $80 I can give to help fix the car.
- We don't want your money.
[POUNDING] - You have something in the trunk here? - Private.
Vicious hunting dogs.
SIMONE: New York City detectives.
Understand? Open that trunk.
Stop that! You see, no problem.
Open the trunk! SIMONE: Hey, get your ass over here! Get over here.
ILLIESCU: Let me go.
I have the right.
Please! You cannot! I have the Give me those frigging keys! Please, I have the right! You have no right! That is private! SIPOWICZ: Okay, ma'am.
We're police.
SIMONE: Give me the other hand! - I am not afraid.
You wacko man! - I spit on you! SIPOWICZ: You all right? You all right? I am Mrs.
Lee.
I was afraid, but now I am angry.
- No-good wacko! - What happened? Who knows what he is trying to do? He grabs me, puts me in trunk.
I am walking down the street.
SIMONE: Come on.
- Some city here! Oh, boy! Some place this is! Back seat, there's briefcase.
Very nice, real leather.
I would not handle that too roughly! SIMONE: Andy call the bomb squad? No.
SIMONE: Get in there! Don't wrinkle those shirts! Call the bomb squad.
Bombs Away MEDAVO Y: Can we talk? Gregory, we agreed not to fight at work.
I cannot believe that one minor error in judgment could prove fatal to our relationship.
- I'm going to my desk.
- Does it hurt you to talk to me? - It hurts that you don't trust me.
- I made a mistake.
- Look, I need some time.
Would you back off and give me that? All right.
All right.
There's no need to get all vehement at me.
SIPOWICZ: Mrs.
Lee, you want to come with me? I never saw him before.
I was just walking.
- Where were you going, Mrs.
Lee? - I was coming from bank going to my sister's.
- Only block away.
- Yeah.
- Did you see him following you? - No.
He was leaning on a car.
When I go to walk past, he grabs me.
I tell him, "Take money.
Leave me alone.
" - Did he say anything? - He accused me.
He say I follow him.
I do not understand him so well.
He speak foreign.
And puts me right in trunk.
After he picked you up at Union Square, about how long did you drive around? - Two hours, maybe more.
- Did he stop the car at any point? Once he stop and waited.
Then he drove again.
Stop again.
I could hear airplanes.
Then he drives again until he hits your car.
- And he never interfered with you? - He puts me in the trunk! But he didn't touch you sexually? No.
But who knows? Maybe later.
I think he's wacko! Do you think so? Well, yeah, I think there's a good chance that he is.
Now, you understand that this man is not gonna get out of here? You have nothing more to fear from him.
I am not afraid of him.
He's a scumbag, wacko! That's the spirit, Mrs.
Lee.
Now, if you should remember anything you just call me, all right? Anytime, night or day.
- Here's my number.
Okay? - Yes.
I will call.
- Here's my number.
Okay? - Yes.
I will call.
Okay.
PUTNAM: They got me in segregation.
One hour of exercise every three days.
Anything you can do? SIMONE: Nope.
PUTNAM: You must be a celebrity here you being the one I confessed to.
SIMONE: The biggest.
Hey, get this.
Once I write the book they want me to record it for books on tape.
My voice.
Chilling, huh? - You're gonna be a celebrity.
PUTNAM: We both are.
- Put him in the cage.
I'll be back.
MARTINEZ: Yeah, okay.
Before Putnam graduated to serial killer, he pulled a few stickup homicides.
- What are we looking at? - Two homicides from seven years ago.
Witnesses spotted him on TV, called in and said he was the guy.
His lawyer won't let him talk.
We got to do a lineup.
- You got the witnesses in? - Yeah, we're ready.
Detective, Sgt.
Augustino just called up.
Arnold Rudman is downstairs, says he wants to talk to you.
- Thanks.
- The last victim's father.
- Excuse me.
- Yeah.
See you.
Mr.
Rudman.
Hello, detective.
What can we do for you? Well, I'm establishing a foundation.
The Alexandra Rudman Foundation, to offer aid and assistance to families who have lost a family member to violent crime.
That's good, sir.
I'd like members of the police to be involved in it.
Actually, you're the first person I thought of.
This explains the goals and objectives.
Well I'm not really sure what department policy would be on something like this.
Well, if you'd just read it.
Tell me, what's your opinion of the trial? I'm pretty sure the confession will hold.
I wish I could share your optimism.
I'll check policy on this after the trial and get back to you.
One more thing, I heard Putnam is being brought in for a lineup.
- Where'd you hear that? - I have my sources.
I want to see him, detective.
I want another look at the bastard who killed Alex.
I think I'm entitled to that.
Pick a number.
Three.
MARTINEZ: Everybody sit.
He had that smirk at the arraignment.
He enjoys this.
Detective Lesniak can show you out.
- Thanks, Adrienne.
LESNIAK: You're welcome.
- This is Mr.
Belgrade.
- Hi.
This is a one-way mirror behind the shade.
You can see in, but they cannot see out.
When I raise the shade, tell me the number of anyone you recognize.
- You ready? - Yeah.
Number three.
SIMONE: Where do you recognize him from, sir? He's the man who shot my girlfriend.
SIMONE: Thanks.
Hi, Dana.
Yeah, it's Greg Medavoy.
Yeah.
I'm okay.
Listen, Dana, I'd like to talk to you about No, no.
Not on the phone.
I'd like to get your take on a couple of things going on between me and Donna.
- Greg? - Hold on.
Got a minute? We're putting him in the car.
Okay, I'll be right there.
Okay.
Yeah.
All right.
I'll see you in a while.
Thanks.
SIMONE: I'll catch up with you guys.
MARTINEZ: Okay.
- Mr.
Rudman? You had your look.
- Yes.
Thank you.
[GUN FIRING] MARTINEZ: Get down! Get the door! SIMONE: Get him back inside! SIMONE: Sarge, we got a man shot! - 15 Base to Central.
Shots fired.
- Will I be okay? Man shot.
We need emergency services and a bus, forthwith.
[CHATTERING INDISTINCTLY] SERGEANT: This is Sgt.
Augustino.
FANCY: What happened? SERGEANT: We need the task force.
Putnam got shot right outside.
Be careful.
Shots came from across the street.
FANCY: You call EMS? SERGEANT: They're on the way.
SIMONE: Sergeant, take care of this? SERGEANT: Sure, detective.
Now we won't have to watch that animal smirking while some ACLU lawyer talks about him not being responsible for his actions.
What do you know about this, Mr.
Rudman? Nothing.
But I'd like to pin a medal on whomever is responsible.
- Why did you stay after you saw him? - Son of a bitch murdered my daughter.
I needed a little recovery time.
Look, it's a public building.
I had a valid reason for being here.
And as for my timing, I guess I'd call it fortuitous.
I may want to talk to you more about this.
You know where to find me.
You know what will come from the press? Why he was brought here instead of running the lineup at Rikers? Witnesses get intimidated up there.
Sometimes they're afraid to make an ID.
I'll let you explain that, huh? [DOOR OPENS] [SIREN WAILS] First they come with guns.
Next they will come with bombs.
To annihilate fascist stronghold.
You ever have any mental health problems, Illiescu? No.
See, I'm trying to figure out if you're crazy.
You don't hear voices in your pillow? Maybe see helicopters in the room? - Anything like that? - You don't have to insult me.
I am a man.
Treat me like a man, not like dog.
Why was that woman in your trunk? You see a poor man on the street, in winter, starving and no place to sleep.
You do nothing, he dies.
Is that crime? In America, that is no crime! How about you get off the soapbox and tell me what you do for a living.
I am a busboy.
I pick up the dirty plates of the rich pigs that you work for.
I work for the city of New York, asshole.
Now, why did you take that woman? Yes, please.
Call me asshole.
If I were rich, I would not even be here.
And you, you would call me sir! Hey! You had explosives in your car.
You had a woman in the trunk.
Now, you are in looking at a lot of jail if we don't stick to the topic here! Explosives? Just fireworks.
Romanians celebrate with fireworks.
Independence of our country from the Ottoman Empire.
The coronation of King Carol I, many holidays.
I safely celebrate Romanian holiday, but not the king.
Why were handcuffs on the handle of your briefcase? I handcuff device to my wrist during transport to avoid theft.
You know what I think? I think you're full of crap.
- Sipowicz.
Is that right? Sipowicz? - Right.
I think you don't think.
I think you are Polack.
That's right.
I'm a Polack.
At times I've been deeply wounded by unthinking remarks.
But somehow I find the strength to go on.
Now, how about you telling me about that woman in your trunk? Sure, why not.
I meet her on the street.
We are talking.
It becomes clear to me she has thoughts of self-destruction.
She was gonna kill herself? Yes.
She was despondent over the degradation of the masses.
- You met this woman before? - No.
But we have shared in being oppressed as newcomers to this country.
So I put her in trunk to take her to hospital.
You see, I can't take chance that she despairs and leaps out of car into traffic.
That would be horrible.
So I am en route to care facility when, boom, I encounter you.
That's a great explanation, Illiescu.
You're a real human benefactor.
Yes, more people should be like me.
So I can go now, yes? Shots came from the roof across the street.
It's accessible by four buildings.
The murder weapon is an H & K 91, Pentax scope.
That's a very expensive piece there.
- Any prints? - Wiped clean, not even a partial.
Look.
You see this gun? This has been around, man.
But that scope right there, that's brand-new.
We got the manufacturer working off the serial numbers to trace it to a retailer.
- What about the canvass? SIMONE: Nothing, so far.
- What about the canvass? SIMONE: Nothing, so far.
One resident was on the roof smoking a joint two hours before.
He says nobody was up there.
He didn't see anything.
Medavoy and Martinez are checking adjacent buildings the MTA and the cab companies.
The good news is 800 people would like to see this scum dead.
You got anything I can tell Aiello? I don't know if this is something to tell Aiello but when we first picked up Putnam, Rudman throws out this number for me to whack him.
- I figure he's upset so I let it pass.
- And he was here when Putnam got hit.
He set up a victim's assistance foundation.
It gives him a reason to talk to the victims' families.
I got Mrs.
Wilson out there right now.
[KNOCKING] - Yeah? - Illiescu claims that he put the woman in the trunk to prevent her from killing herself.
Massive act of compassion.
I talked to the DA, the warrant's approved on his apartment.
- I'm on my way.
Is it Putnam? - Yeah.
FANCY: Have the bomb squad meet you.
- Yeah.
- Hey.
- Hey.
I heard you were there when Putnam got shot.
Me and Greg were gonna transport him to Rikers.
- I'm glad the perp was a good shot.
- I'm glad you're glad.
- James? You got anything on the scope? MARTINEZ: Yeah.
Let me see my notes.
Shipped to the R&S Sportsman's Shop in Yonkers.
The manager's checking records to find out when it was sold.
I'm gonna see if I can get a description on the buyer.
Good deal.
All right.
- Here you go.
- Thank you.
You were talking about the meetings Rudman organized for the families.
He's been very helpful, supportive.
I think those meetings have done us all a lot of good.
What happens at the meetings? We talk about our children.
Our feelings now that they're gone.
Does anyone ever? Do you talk about retribution or revenge? Not really.
- Only once in a while.
It's only natural.
- Sure.
Who do you remember talking about that? Mr.
Rudman, Mr.
Sandquist.
They did most of the talking.
Mr.
Sandquist was very outspoken.
His daughter was also killed by Putnam.
[DOORBELL RINGS] MEDAVO Y: How you doing, Dana? DANA: How are you doing? It must have been so frightening today, that guy getting shot.
To tell you the truth, I haven't thought about that.
I've got these other things on my mind.
Take off your coat.
I'll get you a glass of wine.
Yeah.
You know, I'm helping Andy to search an apartment.
A glass of water would be great.
So I guess you haven't talked to Donna? - You guys aren't getting along? - What did she say? Nothing.
But you called me.
I mean, you never call me.
- So I figured you guys had a fight.
- Yeah.
She's very upset.
Oh, boy.
She - She went out with this other guy.
- Let me guess.
Dentures, stitch line over the eye and hemorrhoids from sitting on the bench? Yeah.
I mean, she says he's just an old friend.
But I got very angry.
I guess I overreacted.
So she's made you feel like it's your fault she's seeing another guy.
You know about her and hockey players.
No.
No, I believe that, you know, there was nothing to it but I can't seem to talk to her now.
You know, if you could talk to her She'd never listen to me.
She knows how I feel.
- How you feel? - I'll level, Gregory.
I'm very attracted to you.
Donna knows that.
Oh.
I know you don't even notice me, but That's how I feel.
MEDAVO Y: I'm sorry! Look, this isn't your fault.
- I just shouldn't be here.
- Don't apologize.
I hate it when men apologize.
- What do you think? SIPOWICZ: Yeah.
Ha-ha.
- Who is that? Donald Trump? MEDAVO Y: Yeah.
[SIREN WAILS] - Bomb squad's here.
- Yeah.
Looks like a heavy reader, huh? A couple of cookbooks for bombs copies of The Mercenary Monthly.
Here, centerfold for this month, frog with the top of his skull blown off.
See that little green-butted fly there.
That's a real nice touch, right? How can people look at that stuff, huh? MEDAVO Y: Hey, Andy.
Here's a book with a list of really wealthy people.
Names, addresses and travel routes.
SIPOWICZ: Wait a minute.
Greg, help me move this bed out.
Oh, wow.
Half the Romanian National Armory is in there.
MEDAVO Y: Hey, guys! Step on it! Come on! OFFICER: What did you find? SIPOWICZ: Explosives in his wall.
OFFICER: This is our ball game from now on.
SIPOWICZ: Well, go ahead.
Take over, guys.
- Hear ticking? SIPOWICZ: Medavoy, let's go.
- Hear ticking? SIPOWICZ: Medavoy, let's go.
MEDAVO Y: Was there ticking? - Evacuate the building.
- I didn't hear that.
- Medavoy, let's go! MEDAVO Y: Right, Andy? Mr.
Sandquist, I'm Detective Simone.
Thanks for coming in.
As I'm sure you know, George Putnam was shot and killed this morning.
Yeah, I heard.
He was shot right outside of the station house here.
The shooter got away clean.
Good.
Yeah.
No one's really broken up about it.
But the boss says we have to ascertain the whereabouts of anyone who might have wanted him killed.
I told him that was about half the population.
Anyway, I don't mean any disrespect.
That's okay.
You're just doing your job.
- Mm-hm.
What were your whereabouts? - I was at my place.
- Mm-hm.
What were your whereabouts? - I was at my place.
- Was anyone there with you? Your wife? - No.
She was at her dialysis clinic.
She still is.
Give her a 9:00 appointment, she's lucky if she's in the chair by 1:00.
Tell you what, why don't you write down the name of the clinic for me? That way we don't have to bother her.
- So you're on your own, huh? - At 9:00 I was watching TV.
- Did I say it happened at 9? - I know I heard it somewhere.
- Watching TV.
- Yeah.
Regis and Kathie Lee.
They had a chef on from one of those fancy restaurants talking about low-fat recipes and Dick Van Patten.
Dick Van Patten, huh? And after that, I read the paper.
Were you in the service? The infantry.
Two tours in Vietnam.
Yeah, I fired expert.
Does that mean I need a lawyer? That will be up to you.
We're just gathering information here.
Why don't you make up your mind on that? We'll take a break.
We've been out to your place, Illiescu.
So now you know I am ordinary man, a worker.
Are you a communist? Discredited and corrupt ideologies do not interest me.
That's good.
Because if I thought you were some kind of aggrieved Third World piss pot I'd have to get the Anti-Terrorism Task Force in on this.
I am a man who woke up from the dream the nightmare of America.
I saw the bombs you built, Mr.
Illiescu.
- Yes? - You're obviously an intelligent man to be able to put all that together.
- Yet, here I am, just a busboy.
There's also a list of prominent people.
Addresses, contact numbers, very thorough.
People who spend half a million dollars on flowers for a marriage to a whore they divorce in one year! Diseased swine! People who look past you when you walk on the street! Why are they on a list? I'm cataloging atrocities of the ruling class.
If justice ever comes to this country they will be held accountable for their actions.
But these are just dreams.
In actuality, I have done nothing.
So it is not serious.
You didn't harm Mrs.
Lee.
I finished the bombs.
And I feel very satisfied, very good.
So I pick up woman.
Later I was going to party with her.
- Party with her? - Of course.
Drink some wine, make a meal, screw her.
Good times.
Okay.
You're a well-spoken man, Mr.
Illiescu.
Can you write all this down yourself? I'm educated.
I can write it.
After I write it, I pay you fine and go.
I have $80 with me.
I have $80 with me.
Before I take money from you, should we talk about anything else? I get the feeling there's a little more you want to tell me.
- No.
That is everything.
- Make sure it is.
Otherwise I'll kick this thing to the FBI, the CIA, and you and I won't be talking man-to-man anymore.
- Anything off the canvass? SIMONE: The canvass came up empty.
- Anything on the weapon? - The serial number was filed off.
James tracked the scope to a shop in Yonkers.
Rudman bought the scope, but he didn't do the murder.
What about the Sandquist girl's father? Like him? Yes.
He gave me a rehearsed alibi, had a lawyer's card in his pocket.
- He was in the service, he knows rifles.
- Are you giving him a coffee break? He was about to lawyer up.
I don't want to pressure him.
I think he'll talk.
FANCY: All right.
Keep me posted.
DONNA: Can I help you? They told me I should talk to a detective.
- Regarding? - It's about that shooting this morning.
You know, how that Webster guy was killed over here.
Detective, this man has some information on the Putnam shooting.
Come on in.
- Detective Simone.
- Walter Roach.
SIMONE: How you doing? Have a seat.
Oh, boy.
Now I feel like an idiot.
What information do you have, Mr.
Roach? - I gotta tell you? - Yeah.
I'd like you to.
Well, see, I'm a driver for Speedway Cabs.
And our dispatcher was saying how the police were interested in suspicious fares we picked up in the vicinity this morning.
And I remember this guy I picked up right after 9:00 on 2nd Avenue.
- How he was sweated and worked up.
- What did he look like? It's my mistake.
What's wrong? - I think he's a cop.
- Why? Because he's sitting right in that room over there.
- That's the guy you picked up? - Yeah.
- Come on.
- What? SERGEANT: Right here.
- Here? DONNA: I'll give this to the lieutenant.
SERGEANT: Right.
You got it.
DONNA: Okay.
- Hi.
DANA: Hi.
- Well, you can congratulate me.
DONNA: You got the job? It looks very, very good.
Mr.
Fineman, the vice president of acquisitions, wants me back for a final interview.
They have to talk to the other applicants, but he said it's just a formality.
That's great.
Um, actually, that's not why I'm here.
I'm here about Greg.
- He called me.
- Uh-huh.
He's very upset about what's happening in your relationship.
- He called you about that? - Yeah.
Well, he felt since we're sisters, I could talk to you.
You should try and be fair with this guy, whatever you're up to with Harold.
I mean, I look at him, Donna, and I see devastation in his face.
When did you look at him? He came by.
This isn't something that we could talk about on the phone.
You know, Dana, this has a very familiar ring to it.
Is this the thanks I get? You're the one that's made a mess of things.
I'm just trying to help.
Do me a favor, Dana.
Don't help.
If that's the way you want it.
SIMONE: Yeah.
Well, that's good.
Yeah, all right.
Well, they got you traveling around.
Come on back in.
Later.
James just called from a rifle range in Garden City.
A guy remembers Sandquist coming in to sight his rifle.
FANCY: Is he bringing him in for an ID? SIMONE: Better.
They got him on the security camera tape.
I'm going to talk to him now.
- Make up your mind? - I don't know.
I think you want to talk.
I think that deep down you know how important it is to help us find out who did this.
You think I'd help you? You think I'd help you? You think the person who did this should be punished? Mr.
Sandquist, I'd like to get into a discussion with you about this here but I can't talk with you unless you decline legal counsel.
Okay.
Okay, you decline legal counsel? Yes.
Tell me what you think.
I think whoever shot that slime is a hero.
A hero? He was in custody.
He was on his way to jail.
Great system we got, isn't it? My daughter's in the ground and he gets free food and medical for life.
You call that justice? Hey, I know what a scumbag this guy was.
I took him off the street.
I got a stake in this too.
Yeah, well, getting shot is what he deserved.
Not parading around on TV, writing books.
Getting paid for what he did.
You don't think I'd like the death penalty for this guy? I would.
But until that comes, I work with the laws that we got.
I promise you, 99 percent of the people in this city are glad he's dead.
You're probably right.
And I still have to find out who did it.
So let me tell you what I know, Mr.
Sandquist.
I know what you lied about this morning.
You weren't home watching Regis and Kathie Lee.
We have witnesses that saw you leaving the scene.
We have tape of you sighting in the murder weapon at a shooting range.
I also know that there are other people that are involved with this.
Detective, I got no problem with what I did.
And if I have to pay the price, I'll pay it.
There is no reason you should take the fall for this alone.
Listen to me.
You want a confession? I confess.
I killed him.
Now go ahead and lock me up.
- What did Rudman have to do with this? - Nothing.
I know a jury is gonna sympathize with you.
You're probably not gonna serve a lot of time on this.
But the rifle scope that you used was purchased by Arnold Rudman.
Now, I do not believe in coincidences, Roy.
- I think that he gave you that scope.
- I bought it on the street.
I think Rudman got you the lawyer, $ 1000 rifle and we talked with your wife's dialysis clinic.
Now, starting next week, she's switching to a fancy private hospital for her treatments.
Now, is Rudman paying for that too? You want me to write my confession now? [TOILET FLUSHES] I see your perp's writing a statement.
Yeah.
He put himself in on kidnapping and possession of explosives.
So we're done with this guy? I don't think so.
He had a list of names, addresses, schedules.
- He was in the process of something.
- You think he's got bombs out there? This is good, yes? No FBI, no CIA.
I don't see anything about that briefcase or why you were at the airport.
- Airport? Today? - Our people saw you there, Vartan.
I did nothing at airport.
Ask who saw me.
What were you trying to do? I'm not happy with that answer.
You cannot know what is in my mind.
I may have to spread your brains around this room and look through them.
I cannot be detained for what I plan.
Maybe so.
Let's hear.
I am going to pretend that I trust you.
The pipe bombs I would wire to the backs of some swollen rat capitalist family.
They have mercury switches so that if the people move, boom.
Also, I would hook them to timer so that if I do not return in time, boom.
And the briefcase bomb? Briefcase I would handcuff to wrist of head of household take him to bank, he withdraws cash.
- Those are the people on the list? From the list, I chose a family who deserved to pay me.
Who are those people? - This was only plan.
- What were you doing at the airport? Checking super-saver to Bucharest on Tarom Romanian Airline.
You stopped somewhere before you went to the airport.
You were following somebody.
Have a vodka, Mr.
Polack.
Time for the sad accordion music.
Yes, I already placed the bomb.
So now you do as I say, or that rich bitch her two brats and their fat Jamaican lackey will die.
Yes, now I make demands.
- Where are these people, Illiescu? - You will find body parts.
I want half a million dollars.
No, you make me mad.
I want a million! And I want a jet to take me home to Romania! And I want a jet to take me home to Romania! You're gonna want intensive care if you don't tell me where to find those people! You know how I wired those people.
The bombs are on their backs.
One move and they all die.
You better get started, Polack.
You think this is a joke? You think you can beat me? Securiatatea beat me, I don't talk.
Where are they? Where are those people? You can't hurt me in this country, you evil dickless Polack.
You got your green card yet, Illiescu, huh? Because here's something they don't teach in citizenship class.
- Call the bomb squad.
- They're ready to go.
Where to? We'll call the location in on the way.
They can meet us there.
MEDAVO Y: What about Illiescu? - He's resting.
He had a bad day.
Check in there.
[HEAVY BREATHING] SIPOWICZ: Greg get them in here.
Please help us.
SIPOWICZ: We're the police.
Don't be afraid.
Okay, these men are experts.
They're gonna help us all get out of here safely.
Thanks.
You come to beat me again? I wanted to be sure you knew the Loftus family is okay.
So if you were worrying about murder charges, you can stop.
I don't care if they live or if they die.
The way they think about the poor is the way Illiescu think about the rich, garbage.
- You can tell your cellmate all about it.
- You think you are big hero now, yes? Because beating me, you have saved some rich people.
You only do that You could only beat me because I am poor, powerless immigrant in the richest country in the world.
- You're wrong there.
This is America.
I'd have beat you, rich or poor.
Didn't you tell me you don't have steno class tonight? That's right.
Well, maybe we could go out to dinner.
Someplace nice where we could talk.
Why don't you try Dana? She told me about your visit.
Donna, I just wanted to talk to her about us.
And you don't think that offends me, Gregory? Look, I know it's all my fault.
I'm just trying to find a way to turn things around.
Let me go, Gregory.
MARTINEZ: You heading out? LESNIAK: Yeah.
- You live out in Brooklyn, right? - Park Slope.
I heard about this restaurant, Peter Luger's? - Great steaks.
- I thought maybe we could go there.
It's a long way for lunch.
I mean dinner.
Like tonight.
Unless you got something going.
I don't think that's a good idea.
I sort of have a rule about not getting involved with anyone on the job.
Because of Jimmy Abruzzo? I don't think it works to socialize with someone on the job.
- All right.
Well, then I quit.
- Don't quit.
You mean, even if I quit, it wouldn't work? No.
I'll see you in the morning? I'll see you tomorrow.
Why are you here, Mr.
Rudman? - We're here to see Mr.
Sandquist.
- Who's this? Charles Emory, counsel for the Alexandra Rudman Foundation in which capacity, he's representing Mr.
Sandquist.
Mr.
Sandquist has declined legal counsel.
Has he confessed? He's writing up his statement.
But I have some questions I'd like you to answer.
He has nothing to say to you.
- This guy's representing you? - I have no need for an attorney.
Then you won't mind talking to me.
Of course not.
EMORY: Arnold - It's all right, Charles.
- I have nothing to hide.
- Right in here.
[THUNDER ROLLING] You bought a rifle scope at the R&S Sportsman's Shop last month.
Yes.
I purchased it as a birthday gift for my brother.
He's an avid deer hunter.
He's an avid deer hunter.
Have you recovered it? Recovered it? It was stolen from my townhouse with other articles a few weeks ago.
I filed a stolen property report in the 18th Precinct.
A Sgt.
Conroy, I believe.
Gotta give it to you, Mr.
Rudman.
I don't know what you mean.
You decide Putnam should be executed you buy yourself a little justice.
That's what I mean.
If you think you can browbeat me into a half-assed guilty confession, detective you are sadly mistaken.
I don't kid myself, Mr.
Rudman.
I got all the confession I'm gonna get on this from Sandquist.
- Then we have nothing left to discuss.
Except what if he changes his mind? Then what? What if he stops being angry long enough to realize that he got screwed twice? First by Putnam and then by you.
And what if he decides that whatever you paid him wasn't high enough? And what if he decides that whatever you paid him wasn't high enough? The man's a time bomb.
He could blow up right in your face.
You prepared to live with that? You can't imagine what I live with, detective.
Maybe you think you got away with murder once, you will again.
- You're crazy! - You're the crazy one, Mr.
Rudman.
You had one man killed.
You sent another man away to prison for it.
And what have you gained? Your daughter's still dead.
You're still alone.
And if you haven't figured it out that vengeance never gets you even you will.
As far as I'm concerned whoever it was that killed that filthy bastard he's a hero.
You're no hero, Mr.
Rudman.
No.
How it goes is, you lost your daughter, you lost your dignity and now you've lost your humanity.
