NYPD Blue s03e22 Episode Script

He's Not Guilty, He's My Brother

Previously on NYPD Blue.
I'm Lucy Kinley, from the Borough.
I'm your new P.
Where was God when my boy got killed in that bar? - He was there.
- Then he can kiss my ass.
The next time I see you, you're sober and ready to work or you're through.
Do you want people to help you, Andy? Yeah.
- Andrew.
- How's it going? I may not be able to conduct Theo's churching and I wanted to have a moment with you.
I hope that's not out of me speaking disrespectfully before.
Absolutely not.
No, a parishioner is quite ill, and I may need to be with him.
In our faith, Andrew, different from his baptism the churching service introduces Theo and reestablishes Sylvia's connection to God and his dwelling.
- Uh-huh.
- I wanted to explain that to you.
And, in honesty, also I wanted to ask after you.
I'm sober.
I'm going to meetings.
Seem to be doing okay.
I speak with Sylvia every few days.
She's proud of you and hopeful.
I'm sorry I let her down.
I don't want it to happen no more.
When you and I spoke at your station house I urged you to try to accept what had happened to AndyJr as a mystery that only God could understand and so, perhaps, to unburden yourself of the pain and loneliness that drove you to your drinking.
Anyways, I'm not drinking now.
I'm going to my meetings.
God is quite capable, Andrew.
Today, while he meets Theo at the altar and shrine of his dwelling try to give your other son to his care as well.
In any case, I'm glad we could speak again as friends.
If I'm not with Theo this afternoon I'll be with him in my heart and with you and Sylvia as well.
- Detectives.
- Mm-hmm.
They emptied out the register.
And we got a revolver here.
It's a.
22 pistol.
- Those are nine-millimeter shells.
- D.
Got a couple off.
- Yeah.
- I'm gonna check outside.
Go ahead.
Andy, D.
Got some shots off.
We might have a wounded perp.
We got a blood trail here.
I got uniform canvassing the hospitals.
Look at that sign, huh? I'll bet, since this joint opened, they never painted a car for 199 bucks.
You drive up, there's always some reason your job costs more.
Maybe we're lookin' for some, uh, fanatical consumer advocate type.
Did I see you come in the back at the Brooklyn meeting last night? Witness on that purse snatch lived on Flatbush Avenue.
I stopped in after.
- Then you just turned around and split.
- I went to one by my place.
'Cause of me? I'll give you a list of the meetings I'm going to.
Save you on the drive time.
Makes me feel awkward somewhat.
I expect I, uh- I let you down.
You didn't let me down, Andy.
When I was in trouble, you helped me out.
However I can, I want to help you.
Which can include shutting my yap or us going to different meetings.
Probably won't be a problem no more.
I was so glad to see you there.
We got a witness down the block who heard shots.
Sees a white guy beating feet from this direction, jumps in a maroon Camaro haulin' ass around the corner.
He couldn't describe the driver or the guy who jumps in but he got a partial on the license plate.
- Here's the number.
- I'll transmit an alarm.
Sector Boy just responded on the canvass request.
Guy with a bullet wound just walked into Bellevue E.
- All right.
Want to take a ride with me? - Yeah.
- Hey.
- Donald Selness, 37, Bay Ridge address.
Says a psycho shot him in Tompkins Square Park.
They took this out ofhis shoulder.
Ah, thanks.
- Can't even take a walk these days, huh? - Yeah, I know.
- Detectives Simone, Sipowicz.
- Wanna sit down? I'd just as soon go home.
We're interested in what went down with that bullet wound, Donald.
What he said.
Some psycho shot me.
- For no reason? - Yeah.
Maybe I didn't hear him say stop.
" - When was this? - Um, about 6:30.
- You were up pretty early.
- Making the most of my day off.
Anyone see you in the park? I don't know.
The guy who shot me.
We got a witness description on an armed robbery, Don, that fits you pretty good.
Well, it wasn't me.
- Wound and everything.
- Not me.
Wrong guy.
- Your wheel man drop you here? - I walked.
You been arrested before? And don't lie, or I'll shoot you in the other shoulder.
I've been in a few scrapes.
See, that could explain what I'd call Don's hardcase attitude.
- Let's go and work it out at the station house.
- You arresting me? You gonna make me use these? Shoulder don't hurt bad enough, you want your arms bent back? Fancy.
Oh, yeah.
Thanks for calling back, Inspector.
Um, this new P.
Is not working out.
Yeah, she's a sweet girl, but she needs three swings to get a roll call right.
Yeah, monthly stats look like a foreign language.
Yeah, yeah.
I haven't got time to teach basic squad administration.
Thanks a lot.
I appreciate it.
- Well, one more night on that cot, James.
- Yeah? You found a place? Yeah.
L-I didn't want to say anything previous so as not to hex the lease negotiation.
It's out by Bobby's.
Three rooms, plus it's got this little laundry room.
- From back there, you can see part of the Brooklyn Bridge.
- Wow.
A river view apartment.
Well, anyways, I'll be able to make some decent meals.
I can have my daughters for overnights, have more of a social life, you know? - Have a housewarming party.
- You got a double homicide in an alley off Houston in the Bowery.
Oh, that, uh, like, little lover's lane over there? - Yeah.
You and James work it with Adrianne? - Sure, boss.
Hey, Adrianne, we got a case- a double homicide.
- Okay.
- James, you mind if I eat that? I haven't had any breakfast.
- This? Here you go.
- Yeah.
I'll have a little bowl of fruit on the kitchen table and everything.
- Hi.
- Hey, Lucy.
What's available? Interview 1.
No, uh, Interview 2.
All right.
Come here.
Right here.
Hey, guys.
Cops found a Camaro abandoned on a Brooklyn dock.
Should tie to your case.
Bloodstains on the passenger side.
Plates were stripped.
Crime Scene's processing for prints.
- Owner's a Karen Thanos in Queens.
- Thanks, boss.
You mind staying with this guy in 2 and telling Andy we gotta run something down? Okay.
No problem.
One for you.
For you.
- And you.
And you.
- Thanks.
'Entitles bearer to one free haircut.
With gratitude and appreciation, John Irvin.
" - Why you comping out haircuts, John? - Farewell mementos.
- I'm being transferred back to 1 PP.
- Oh.
John's comping us all a future haircut, Bobby.
- He's going back to 1 Police Plaza.
- Oh.
When's this? I have a few days built up.
I'm taking a friend to the beach.
I start after Memorial Day.
There's a small good-bye party in Anticrime at 4:00, but you are forbidden to feel obligated.
- Thanks.
- See you later.
- I'll try to make it up there, John.
- You're comped perpetually.
Thank you.
Lucy, out with Detective Russell and Detective Sipowicz.
He's in Interview 2.
Guy in a sweat suit was out running.
He called it in.
Female D.
Took one up close.
I don't see a bullet wound in the male, but he's white like a zombie.
- You run the plate? - Not yet.
- I'll do it.
- She's got no purse.
- Any I.
On that guy? - Uh-uh.
No wallet on him.
- If it's a robbery, why is his pants down? - Johns bring hookers in here.
Maybe they were gettin' it on, the stickup guy comes in, this guy tries to run away.
The problem is, how did he die? He's real pale.
No blood around him.
Maybe he had a heart attack? Tracks on her arms.
She's probably a hooker.
Yeah, this guy's got tracks too.
They're both junkies.
Just about rules him out as a john.
So, what were they doing here? Fixing? Maybe a dope rip-off.
Take a look at this.
That an entry wound? Yeah.
There's the exit wound.
This guy had to have been moved.
He had to have bled to death somewheres else from a gunshot wound.
Then someone puts his clothes on.
Otherwise, the clothes would be soaked in blood.
Who puts a Band-Aid on a bullet hole, huh? Car's registered to a James and Shelly Bauerline.
Got an address over on Fourth Street.
If that's Shelly, and this isn'tJames then maybeJames took 'em out.
- Is that a bullet hole? - Yeah.
What's with the Band-Aid? Thanks.
The landlord says that this woman who owns the Camaro, she holds a job.
She halfway lives with this 25-year-old guy who's some kind of student.
Who is it? Police, Miss Thanos.
We'd like to talk to you.
Just a second.
That sounds like a window.
- Good? - Back off! Back off! - Anybody else here? - Hey! Hey! Where are you going? I can explain.
It's not how it looks.
- Andy, you okay? - Yeah.
Get up.
What's your name? Jerry Selness.
- What are you doing jumping out the window, Jerry? - I don't know.
I panicked.
- Are you Karen Thanos? - Yes.
- You own an '88 Camaro? - Yeah.
I just got back from reporting it stolen.
- Did you find it? - Yeah, we found it.
- We're going to the station house, Jerry.
- Jerry didn't do anything.
- It's all right, Karen.
Don't worry about it.
- You're coming too.
Come on, Karen.
I swear, Jerry wasn't involved in anything illegal.
Yeah, we're pretty clear there of your ideas on that.
All's you need to tell 'em's the truth, Karen.
How your car got stolen.
- Come here, Jerry.
- Two's occupied, huh? Josh has got someone in there.
- I'm gonna run this to the boss.
- Come on, Karen.
- You and me are gonna talk in here.
- This is horrible.
This way.
She owns the Camaro.
We go to her apartment, and her boyfriend tries to go out the back window.
So we think the boyfriend's in it? This guy we got in Interview 2, Donald Selness? The boyfriend's his younger brother.
Josh, do me a favor? Run these two through B.
I? - Sure.
- These two feel like amateurs.
We should be okay.
We'rejust trying to find out what happened.
Karen's still expressing real concern aboutJerry.
I just don't want to see him get his life ruined.
Then you gotta help us understand what's going on here, Karen whyJerry was ducking out that window.
- He had no reason to.
- How do you know that? I know Jerry.
You know Donald too, hmm? Jerry's older brother? 'Cause we got him in custody right down the hall there.
Look, I don't know what happened, but I know Jerry had nothing to do with it.
A man got murdered during a holdup, Karen.
We know Donald was involved.
Donald was wounded.
Doctors took bullets out of his shoulder that match the store owner's weapon.
We also have a witness that saw him running down the street from the crime scene and jumping into your Camaro.
- And you know who the witness saw driving it? - Oh, God.
Jerry was driving it, Karen.
So that's openers on your file.
False report of a stolen vehicle.
Plus, it's not lookin'so great Jerry wasn't involved.
Donald said he needed a ride, and Jerry drove him.
That's it.
I swear to God.
What do you mean, that's it"? There was a man who was killed here.
Donald said the guy in the auto shop owed him money.
- You heard Donald say this? - He said he owed him money.
But I didn't want to let Donald use my car, so that's whyJerry drove him.
I swear to God! It was my fault, not wanting to let Donald use my car.
If what you're saying's true aboutJerry his older brother's got the both of you in a world of trouble.
Which you better start getting out of before you and Jerry are both past helping.
When Jerry came back to the apartment this morning, what did he say had happened? He said that there was trouble and that he didn't want to tell me about it and that I should report the car stolen.
And you didn't ask him why? So I guess I am guilty because I didn't want to know what had happened.
How's Karen? Karen told us that you gave Don a ride to the auto shop but you didn't know he was gonna shoot anybody.
- Oh, God.
- Just so you understand the law, Jerry You driving that car, that's like committing the robbery and homicide both.
You're just as guilty as your brother Don.
All I know about Don is he's got a rap sheet a mile long and he killed a guy this morning.
So as far as you standing up for him, that only makes you his patsy or scumbag just like him.
Donny's getting his life turned around.
He's been staying out of trouble.
That guy owed him money.
All's he wanted to do was to go down and get it.
- The guy pulled out a gun and shot at him.
- You saw the guy pull a gun out? No, but that's what Donny said.
Now, when did he say it? When he came back outside? When he jumped into the car and you guys booked? You drove him to the hospital, right? Look, he said he owed him money, and that is all I know.
How did it work, Jerry? Did he tell you to take the car to the docks and strip the plates? Is that how he told you to do it? He was defending himself.
Now, I'm not gonna testify against my brother.
I turned that Karen loose.
Just looking at some documents relevant to Don here.
Don's 37.
Since he's 18, he's in the joint And none of those were wrong beefs.
For nine separate collars? Yet so often we hear this nonsense regards the incorrigible criminals.
And, uh, this information out of our ballistics unit, Don? This says the bullet from your shoulder came from the D.
's gun.
- Sounds bad.
- Your brother gave you up, Don.
- No, he didn't.
- No? He didn't tell me that you said this guy owed you money? How his girlfriend didn't want you driving her car, so he said that he would drive you? And here you come, running after the stickup, saying, 'The guy pulled a piece on me.
I had to shoot him in self-defense.
" That's wet behind the ears, wouldn't you say, Don? - Kid even believes self-defense.
- So where's the part where he gave me up? So we disagree- did Jerry mean the flip? Let me give you that he didn't.
He's not looking for any deals.
He will never give you guys a statement.
Ever hear of a D.
Losing a case with circumstantial evidence up the ass but no confession? Why not roll the dice, huh? You crap out, no one's screwed but your brother, 'cause he will go away for the homicide too.
- He didn't do nothin'.
- Mm-mmm.
It's gotta be, He didn't, but I did.
" - Kiss my ass.
- Hey! Hit me again.
Appreciate you coming in, Mr.
Uh, do you have information regarding my wife? - I mean, I'm grateful you recovered my car, but- - Did you use that car? Um, she had it for the last year.
She took the car and blew out my credit cards, almost ruined my business.
When was the last time you saw your wife, Mr.
Bauerline? Has something happened to Shelly? Has she committed a crime? Your wife was found dead this morning.
She was shot.
I'm very sorry.
Uh This is drugs.
Drugs are involved in this somehow.
Why do you say that? She got involved, uh, taking heroin.
Got involved with a guy.
I'm sorry.
What did you say when we asked when you saw your wife last? It was several months.
- But you knew she was seeing someone else? - That make you mad at her? Do you want to know the truth? I never got mad at her.
I tried to help her, tried to be there for her, tried to talk to her.
- Can you tell us where you were last night, Jim? - I was at my dad's.
He's not been well.
I spent the night.
- Is that gonna check out if we call? - Yes.
What do you mean? Do you know where Shelly was staying? No, they got thrown out of the place that they were staying in.
All I have is the address of the boyfriend's mother's business.
She gave me a bunch of stories about how much he needed money.
Something about some terrible liver disease.
His name is Les Treet.
Excuse me.
Uh, Detective Medavoy, NYPD.
Are you Mrs.
Treet? Yes, I am.
This is Detective Lesniak and Detective Martinez.
We were hoping to speak to Mr.
Treet, if he's here.
- Mr.
Treet passed away a year ago.
- Oh, I'm sorry.
Other family helping out? Well, my son Les.
He's resting.
We've had some break-in attempts.
He's agreed to stay here nights.
We need to speak with your son Les, Mrs.
All right.
He's upstairs.
Hasn't been feeling well.
He had hepatitis.
He made a little place for himself up there, in the storage area.
Les! Lester.
- Some people want to see you, honey.
- Who? I don't know nobody.
Hey, Les.
I'm Detective Martinez.
This is Det.
Medavoy and Lesniak.
Oh, I told you not to smoke here, honey.
- You know it's very dangerous.
- Yeah.
Okay, Ma.
You live here regular now, Les? - Helping out Mom.
- He has a roommate, but they're not getting on right now.
He can stay here till he finds a new place.
- You look a little extra tired.
Are you loaded or something? - I told you he's been sick.
- What's the address you been staying at? - Why? - What's the address? - I'm in my business, resting where I work for my mother.
I'm not bothering nobody.
Isn't that right, Ma? - Yeah.
- He ashamed ofhis address or something? - Where you been staying? - Over on Second Avenue.
I thought you were staying at Shelly Bauerline's.
I know where I've been staying, Ma.
Yes, Shelly's, on Avenue D.
" - No.
- Come on, Les.
Get up.
Come on.
Something happened to Les's girlfriend, Shelly.
We have to ask him some questions.
- Oh, no, he's got to rest.
Can't you come back? - Come on, Les.
- He'll be just fine.
- Okay.
Not so fast, okay? - Hi, Lieutenant.
- How you doin'? - Good.
- It looks like you got some fans at the Borough.
Inspector Aiello says they want you back down there.
Is that so? Right away? Well, that's the impression I had, but, uh, if you've got some time built up maybe you'd like to take it and go back after Memorial Day.
I was just thinking, if it's not as much as me having fans at the Borough and more like you're not being satisfied with my work I was just hoping maybe you could give me a few more days to change your mind.
Well, um Y- You got along very well in a diverse squad.
Um, you're a very pleasant and friendly person.
But, um, your secretarial skills they need a lot of work.
I'm starting night classes.
I'm taking typing and general office management.
Well, I think you'd need to complete those before you're, um, likely to work effectively in a squad situation.
All right.
Thank you for letting me know.
- So you keep me posted on how you do on those courses.
- I will, Lieutenant.
Leo Cohen.
I'm riding D.
Which means you're covering precinct business for the district attorney's office today, in this sector of the borough.
And these are the detectives I'm looking for but I'm gonna come back later and give you a gold star for knowing my job specs, okay? - On that homicide this morning, am I missing something? - Hard for me to imagine.
Why aren't we charging the Selness brothers? We're trying to figure out if the younger one knew what was going on.
That's why juries were invented.
The older brother's been in the joint his whole life.
The younger brother's clean.
Donald says that hejust asked Jerry to drive.
- What's in that for us? - You get a statement from the older brother.
Who I've already got by the short hairs.
Younger brother's indictable.
They can worry about his complicity at trial.
We got a more or less okay kid in there that just got caught in the switches.
Why not throw the guy a break? Isn't that part of it too? Bet you'd have been a decent guy if somebody would've beat you three times a week in high school.
The older brother has to exculpate as to the younger brother's conduct and corroborate exactly the younger one's account.
Offer's good to the end of the tour.
Then we charge the both of them.
End of the tour, huh? You making friends with this guy? Okay, here's how it stands, Jerry.
The bullet from Donald's shoulder wound? That matches the weapon of the store owner this morning in the homicide.
We got witnesses' descriptions that put you both in the car leaving the crime scene.
Bloodstains on the car seat- those are Donald's.
- He's getting charged.
- And you are too.
You're getting charged, too, Jerry, unless you both give a statement that corroborates that you did not have an active role in this.
In other words, I rat Donny out.
Hey, Jerry, did I just not give you three pieces of evidence that have nothing to do with you testifying against your brother that are gonna put him in jail? We're banging our heads against concrete here.
Jerry, Donald is gone for the rest of his life.
Now, that's off the table.
The only question here is what you're gonna do for the next 25 years.
And the answer's time in jail," if you don't give the statement, huh? Which can't rat Donald out 'cause unless he cooperates, too tells us the same thing about what happened none of this matters anyway, huh? Uh, coming through in there, Jerry, huh? Is anybody in the residence? What if this is a trick or something? All right? Can I see my brother? You cannot see your brother.
The statements have to be made separately.
Then how do I know this isn't a trick? We're working like coolies to keep this kid out ofjail.
He could probably beat it on a moron defense.
What? Do you understand we're trying to help you here? They found a nine-millimeter in the weeds about 75 yards from the Camaro.
No prints.
- Bobby.
- Yeah.
You were right, Don.
The kid's holding up pretty good.
All that time that you were in thejoint he probably built up this big idea of how you were a good guy.
Hey, listen.
Every week, all the places that kid got passed around to I wrote to him and I told him good things.
That kid's three credits away from his degree.
We found the gun, Don, with just his prints.
You wearing gloves? He was probably so scared and nervous when he was throwing the gun away, like you told him to he forgot to wipe it off.
That kid had nothing to do with this! - Now, do a decent thing, would you? - Us? I had a kid Jerry's age.
He was a great kid.
Nobody didn't like him.
And I can't do nothing for that kid 'cause some scumbag like you murdered him.
You can give this kid a life.
Forty, 50 years where he could make some kind of a contribution, people are glad he's around.
I'll give a statement.
You want a frickin'statement I'll give a statement on why I did it.
The D.
's not gonna give him a walk unless that kid gives a statement too.
So you gotta let him know that you don't think that he's letting you down.
- Can I talk to him? - You can write him a note.
First you give your statement.
Let's do it.
- Hey, Les.
You don't feel so good, huh? - I'm gonna be sick.
- Now? - I'm gonna be real sick real soon.
Could we work my medication out now while I'm still well? Tell us how Shelly and the other guy got shot.
Then we can look at the medication question.
Shelly Bauerline's a girl I've taken drugs with.
End of story.
Shelly Bauerline's a girl you've taken drugs with who was found murdered.
Plus another guy got murdered with her.
Any ideas in that area? - I would like to get my medication squared away.
- Start showing some good faith.
The guy's name is Carl Steppes.
The guy found dead with Shelly? I'm gonna need Valium and two-milligram patches of Clonidine so I can sleep.
You shut up about drugs for five straight minutes, or we'll lock you down for five hours.
I know about the incident you're describing, okay? I helped a person, whose name I'm not gonna tell you who was involved in shooting Carl.
Carl had taken this person's last dime bag which he was saving for his wake up.
But the person was mistaken later found the bag on the floor.
He p- He put a Band-Aid on Carl 'cause he had this little tiny hole in his chest.
Then he realized he was bleeding from another hole in his back when he picked him up, 'cause there was blood all over the carpet.
Asked me to help take him out of there.
All right.
Where was Shelly in all this? Shelly, I and the other person we dressed Carl, rolled him up in a rug.
And while we were driving, it turns out Shelly boots the bag this guy thought Carl had used sitting there, nodding on his wake up.
So then he-he-he- the other guy he realized that she had taken his wake-up bag, so then he shot her.
This, uh, mystery guest, Les- any chance he's made up or we're just talkin' about, uh, you, Carl, Shelly? No.
And I've shown some pretty damn good faith here.
I want some medication on the table.
Stop kidding yourself.
This ain't a pharmacy.
Yeah, I happen to know you can get a doctor to prescribe right now.
No one's prescribing here.
Best you're gonna do is an aspirin till we get a full statement.
All right.
You listen to me.
You listen to me.
You listen to me good.
I got methadone prescribed to me legally in my name.
Okay? And I refuse to speak to you unless that's brought to me from my mother's place.
It's hidden on the first ledge, where you were at.
I'll give you what you want.
Just bring me the stuff.
Want to take a ride? Ah, come on, please.
Take a ride with him.
Any kind of commotion, Mr.
Bauerline, you're out of the station house.
I won't cause a commotion.
I just wanna lay eyes on him.
Have a seat.
I better run this by the boss.
- Thanks.
- D.
's estranged husband, boss.
Uh, we're picking up the perp's meds he's out there trying to get the mother to tell him what's going on.
So why'd you bring him back? We collared up off this guy giving us the address.
He's heartbroken.
He just wants to see what this creep looks like.
- He gets a look.
- Uh, we found Treet's methadone.
You know, verifying the prescription.
I figured I'd give him, like, a quarter dose just to get him rolling.
You feel the need to go into more detail on this with me, Greg? - No, sir.
- Good.
Les has me on a 45-second cycle seeing if you guys got back.
Listen, the D.
's husband was out at Treet's place.
We said we'd give him a look.
Could you just sit with him, Adrianne, till we see how this bum acts on this stuff? No problem.
- Okay.
- Imagine if I got past seventh grade.
World's had a boot on your neck right along, Don.
No question in my mind on that score.
NowJerry's gotta give up his statement.
We've been in there twice more with him.
He says that he's not gonna do it unless you and him talk private, you give him an okay.
You said him and me couldn't talk.
We're gonna break the rules, give the kid one last chance.
We're gonna bring Jerry in here and let you talk to him.
He'll give a statement or he won't.
But that's it for us in this case.
Then the D.
's can have it.
And they'll go after both of you.
Get him to give it up, Don.
We'll be watching through that mirror here.
I know that's a shock to you.
Let's go.
- Hey.
- Hey.
You all right? They hit you? No.
Come here.
Sit down.
You gotta give up a statement, Jer.
All right? - Just tell the truth.
Tell 'em what you did.
- No.
No, you wouldn't do that to me.
Uh, don't make it no worse for me.
I already gave them a statement.
- You know? You just look out for yourself here now.
- Myself? - Yeah.
- Donny, you're my brother.
I wanted to have some kind of life with you.
- It didn't work out this time.
- Oh, no, Donny.
You know, the best time I ever had, best part of my life was when I was writing letters to you, imagining that I was helping you.
If you're outside you could give me some of the life that you got.
You know, when we're alone in a cell, we we got nothing except dreams about what's out there.
You can give me some of that.
You could give me the ocean.
You know? I mean, I can be right there.
I can be puking off the side of a fishing boat.
You know, I mean, you get incarcerated, I got no dreams.
I'm dead.
- We're lucky, you and I.
- Yeah.
I can line my walls with pictures of your kids.
- I need you to help me here, Jer.
- No, Donny! Come here, come here, come here, come here.
Come here.
No, no! Donny! Come on, come on, come on.
You just write the statement, all right? - Okay.
- All right.
Carl had to slam crank.
I could walk away from crank today.
I'll do it, if it's in front of me.
I'm not gonna lie to you.
But 11:00 to 5:00 dope is me.
I saw a guy bit his tongue off behind crank.
His jaw locked up.
Hey, stop the drug seminar.
Did you shoot Carl? I confess to shooting Carl Steppes over a misunderstanding over his taking my wake-up dope and in disposing of his body.
I confess I killed Shelly Bauerline who'd shot my wake-up dope herself while we were driving Carl's body and who'd wound up a skanky dime-bag whore.
I'm less sure I gave her the hep than she gave it to me.
I will not sign this as a statement until I've received the rest of my legally prescribed medication.
Are you goin' to get it? I gotta check with your clinic doctor.
Don't feel the need to hold nothin' back while I'm gone.
All right.
All right? It's a roll of the wheel now.
If you want, Mr.
Bauerline, you can take your look at him now through the window.
Can I listen to what he's saying? Uh, I think we'll just stick with the look.
I'll be right back.
He looks like a rat.
That's who she left me for? I loved her.
I wanted to make a life with her, have a family.
She told me all she cared about was feeling that warm go through her the drugs going into her body.
I don't believe that's truly who Shelly was.
I mean, I've known her since- since high school.
I've known her since she was 15 years old.
- L- - Mr.
Why don't you and I go out for a cup of coffee? Hmm? - I really wouldn't want to impose.
- It's not an imposition.
Come on.
Let's go.
You know what I'm really gonna miss? These cards that he gave us.
- No, thanks.
- Detective Sipowicz.
Listen, uh, I got a personal function.
I just- I just want to say so long.
You didn't get a haircut coupon, free.
Well, Sylvia liked how you did it before.
I think there's the guy you're looking for.
Anyways, I got this personal function.
Good luck to you, John.
Thank you, Detective.
Thank you for being my friend.
Mother! Didn't I specifically request you not do this? I thought your friends might like a sweet.
Th-These are my colleagues, and this is Noreen Irvin with whom I'm going to be having a very serious conversation when we get home.
Come on, John.
You got cake eaters waiting.
How are you doing? I'm Lieutenant Fancy.
She does make the best Bundt cake in all five boroughs.
You! I can't believe you did this.
- Hi.
Greg Medavoy.
- Anne McGuire.
- You're in Anticrime, huh? - Yeah.
For the last couple of months.
You're the phantom of the crib.
Oh, yeah.
Yeah, I-I've been staying there during some domestic upset.
No more though.
I'm moving out tomorrow.
I found a pleasant three-room apartment in Brooklyn.
- That's good.
- Yeah, I-I'm very pleased.
- What about yourself? Where do you live? - Hempstead.
- Yeah, I live with my folks.
- Bundt cake.
- Thanks, John.
- Thank you.
Yeah, I used to live in Nassau.
My ex and my kids still live there.
Drive can get iffy sometimes.
Well, I do mostly 6:00 to 2:00, so that's not too bad.
Ah, then you're in good shape.
So D.
Cohen put the younger brother in for a walk.
- Good.
- Yeah.
- It's nice when one works out.
- Would you like some Bundt cake, young man? Uh, this is Detective Simone, Mother.
My mom, Noreen Irvin.
- Pleased to meet you.
- I knew this was him.
My son says you're the greatest policeman sinceJack Webb.
- That's pretty good company.
- Mother, I'm going to leap through an open window.
Diane and I were just talking about taking advantage of the weather and go out for a little walk, having some dinner.
So you won't take any offense if I save my appetite? I'm just hoping the weather holds through the weekend.
- John is treating me to a trip to Fire Island.
- Really? Do you want to show them my baby pictures too? - You take care, John.
- You too.
- And good luck on this new assignment.
- Yes! - Come and see us.
- I will.
- Bye.
- Thanks a lot.
You looked like a deer in headlights when his mom came over.
I just had eyes to get out.
Lovely spring thus far, huh? L- I've been remarkably allergy-free.
Both of your sons are with you.
Try to pray.
The servant of God, Theo, is brought within the church in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit.
I shall enter your house, O Lord.
I shall worship in your temple.
The servant of God, Theo is brought before you in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit.
In the middle of the church, I shall praise you.
The servant of God, Theo, is brought within the church, in the name of the Father Please keep care of my other son, too, and take him to your heart.
In the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit.
Now, Master, let your servant depart in peace, according to your promise for my eyes have seen your salvation which you have prepared in the presence of all peoples.
Bless and keep my son who's gone and bless and keep all my family and give me strength to be a good person.
Glory to you, O God, our hope.
Glory to you.
May Christ have mercy on us and save us for he's a good and merciful God who loves mankind.
Through the prayers of our holy fathers, amen.
- This was good, huh? - Yeah.
It was good.
You know, ever since I improved on that first course for you over at Oswaldo's you haven't been showing much enthusiasm about our meals.
Well, you know, I'd ask you to slide over here and, uh, do something about that.
I got a better idea.
You got any vacation time? I think I have nine days left.
I used some up with my mom.
You want to throw some things together, drive down to the shore for a while? You mean it? I don't trifle about vacations, Diane.
Twenty minutes after I met you I was hoping real bad you were gonna be a nice guy.
As good a cop and as hot as you were I knew I was gonna have feelings for you.
How lucky I turned out.
Is that a yeah" on the vacation? Yeah.
I want to spend some time with you.
Excuse me.
Let's get out of town.
