NYPD Blue s04e03 Episode Script

Yes, We Have No Cannolis

Previously on NYPD Blue.
- Is this the 15th Detective Squad? - Yes.
Hi, I'm Geri Turner.
I'm your new P.
A.
A.
Henry Coffield.
She left you that building.
Teresa Coffield.
- Yeah, sit down.
- I don't want to sit down.
That's my mother.
That building's supposed to be mine.
- I know nothin' about this.
- Try to do the right thing 'cause otherwise you're gonna ruin someone's life.
This has become a nightmare, Andy- these continual postponements.
I'm not startin' a diet today.
You wanna start it, you start it yourself.
Andy, we both require peer reinforcement.
- We've discussed this.
- Shut up, Medavoy.
Diane, I- I want you to marry me.
[ Exhales ] Oh.
Bobby.
- I- I don't know what to say.
- No? - 196 and a half.
- [ Sighs ] - I'm three inches taller, minimum.
- [Pounding] [Man ] Come on, what's going on? I gotta piss.
- Who's that? Morrissey? - Yeah, can't get a break on his case.
- What the hell are you doin' in here? - Weighin' ourselves.
- We're starting a competitive diet.
- Yeah, real interesting.
Anybody ask if you were interested? Yeah, that's a point.
Hate to butt in with real police work.
Hey, let me loan you some of my kids' Mister Rogers tapes, Morrissey.
Give you a different approach to your begin-the-day attitude.
Ah, save it.
He's got no weight problem, so-so he don't think it's important.
You're 196 and a half.
- I'm 221.
- Next weigh-in's Friday.
[ Sighs ] Any impulse to dine together, Andy? - Buttress our commitments? - No.
- See, this way we're reminded.
It's a friendly competition.
- No.
Okay, then.
Then everybody's on his own.
And I'll tell you something, Andy.
I did not relieve myself before the weigh-in.
So I got that advantage.
Number one or two.
- Hey, Andy.
- How's it going, Martinez? Andy, I, uh, know you and Vince Gotelli go back a ways but I'm hoping you'll give me a serious look when you cast your ballot for delegate tomorrow.
"Honest, hardworking and interested.
" - That's my campaign slogan.
- I already got a mug.
This can be a backup in case something happens to that one.
Seven years- this cup's still in one piece.
In other words, you're going for Gotelli? It's a secret ballot, Martinez.
That's what all them wars were for.
- Hey, Stu, you want a campaign mug? - Yeah, thanks.
- Uh, Andy, you got a second? - Yeah.
- Good morning.
- Detective, your messages.
Talk to you and Bobby for a minute? No law says you couldn't have two mugs.
- What's up? - Sorry I broke bad before.
- I'm over it.
- Anything on that missing kid? Nah.
I'm goin' at the father again.
I'm on no sleep, guys from Missing Persons are empty suits.
I gotta look at the father.
He was supposed to be taking care of the kid but God's honest truth, I don't know if I should like him or not.
Well, could we sit in? Take a listen to the guy? I'll tell you, I'd really appreciate that.
How bad you gonna piss off these guys from Missing Persons? - Hey, I give a rat's ass, all the help they've been.
- Where you got him? Two.
- Could we get a minute? - Yeah, sure.
Thanks.
I want Mr.
Garza to talk to a couple guys from my squad.
[ Clears Throat ] Ricardo, this is, uh, Detective Simone and Sipowicz.
[ Clears Throat ] Ricardo, this is, uh, Detective Simone and Sipowicz.
- Good to meet you.
- [Sipowicz] Sorry about the situation.
Yeah, well, what would be better is if more police kept looking for my baby girl, you know - instead of askin' me what happened 10 times.
- We got other detectives re-canvassing the whole area, Ricardo- that's continuous.
Yeah, they got guys out from all over the borough.
Someone saw your girl get taken, we're gonna find 'em.
Can I get you to tell us what happened again? - As hard as that is for you.
- I'm hoping they'll have different questions for you bring out other details that could be helpful.
We're all looking to find your baby here, Mr.
Garza - everybody in this room, okay? - [ Sighs ] Okay, 8:00 last night, I go out to get some dinner, right? I take her in her stroller so she's not home alone, you know? - Your wife’s at work? - She works three nights a week with a cleaning service.
While I'm waiting for my order, I call my mother 'cause the phone at my place is temporarily disconnected, I use the pizzeria phone.
- Which is inside? - Yeah, it's in the corner where the seats are.
Phone booth with a hinged door.
I get off the phone.
Crystal's not in her stroller.
She's gone.
I start going off.
Where is she? How far from the stroller were you when you were in the booth? I was 1 5 feet away, no further than that.
But my back's halfway turned, you know, I'm trying to listen to what my mother's saying.
That's how they must’ve grabbed her up.
Grabbed her like snatched her up, as opposed to someone you knew? I guess, yeah.
Well, I-I mean, if it was a stranger you would've think she would've cried, right? I asked Ricardo that- anyone from the neighborhood that might have done it.
Stu, let him tell it.
I already told them.
I couldn't think of anybody, all right? I-I don't know how this happened.
I don't know who took her.
If I knew, I would have said.
Believe me.
People saw the stroller, but nobody saw the baby inside.
So what are you saying, huh? - Say what you're trying to say.
- Easy, Mr.
Garza.
Come on.
Look, the baby was in the stroller my back was halfway turned talking to my mother and somebody picked her up.
And if I find out who in hell stole my daughter before you guys do then you're gonna have me in here for murder! And I'll cop to it! - What do you think? - You got to look hard at him.
- What's the wife say? - Backs him up strong- good father, good provider.
Gets his load on payday, but he don't get mean.
- Thank you, Mr.
Garza.
- Okay, thanks.
- She said he don't get mean, or you brought it out? - No, I brought it out.
She volunteers, you'd wonder if she’s coverin'.
- Nothin' about he's abusive? - Nothin' at all.
I went for it four different ways.
- Where'd he get muscled-up like that? - Never been in the joint, Andy.
Lifts weights at home.
You wanna talk to the wife? No, Stu.
Nobody's tryin' to elbow in on your case.
I came to you.
I don't want Fancy bringin' seven squads in.
- I'll get the wife down here.
- When did you sleep last, Stu? Yeah, I should.
I'll get her in.
- Out on his feet.
[ Scoffs ] - Maybe over his head.
I gotta go talk to that half-wacko from the building.
Your real estate inheritance? - How'd it go with the lawyer? - [ Sighs ] He don't think it's got much equity.
She refinanced the note when all the real estate was high.
You're not gonna get stuck on this? Wi-Will the rentals finance the note? Past the taxes and the note, the lawyer figures, like, 500 a month income.
Well, that's not bad.
As long as there's no big maintenance problems.
Hey.
- No.
Now, don't start.
- [ Laughs ] She adjusted my collar.
She reached right in there.
She messed around with my tie with no permission whatsoever.
- [ Sniffs ] - I got to get out of here.
Lawyer say what this kid's problem was? - Why she didn't leave the house to him? - Yeah, she left me a letter.
- It says the kid's got no willpower.
- Which shows itself how? Could he damage the physical plan? Yeah, the letter didn't go into it.
Don't hold off on the interview if Morrissey brings in the mother.
Bobby, was the baby in that stroller? How come no one saw it? Hey.
Oh, Greg.
I got the mugs.
- Yeah? - Yeah.
Check it out.
- Hey.
- Ah, you got the mugs.
- Yeah.
- Nice! That's right.
What this says is, I'm serious.
I'm going that extra step.
- Like I'll go the extra step as your delegate.
- Yeah, good approach.
- Yeah.
- I'm thinkin' of havin' a pastry fragment.
You know, if-if-if- if you starve yourself you may overcompensate and wind up on a binge.
Figure it'd put a little on your stomach, huh? - Yeah.
- Well, anyways, uh - this one's for you, all right? - Yeah.
Yeah.
Good, James.
- Yeah.
- You got my vote.
- All right.
- [ Sighs ] No, sir.
- How's it going? - Hi.
Oh, I'm Bobby Simone.
Mrs.
Cimino left me the building.
Sara Carelli, 2-D.
This is Buster.
Hey, Buster.
Mrs.
Cimino was always really nice about pets.
- Yeah, huh? - Were you related in some way? My wife was Mrs.
Cimino's niece.
Oh, she was sweet.
She taught me to needlepoint.
Do you know? uh, Henry, her son? - Uh-huh.
- Would you mind if I ask you whatyou thought about him? I'd just as soon not get in the middle of that.
If he would've taken the building, you think he would’ve let you keep the dog? Mrs.
Ciminowas always really sweet about pets.
I used to help her here on weekends, Sara.
She didn't allow any pets.
- I got mugged three weeks ago.
- I don't have any problem with the dog.
I don't like Henry much.
Let me give you an example.
After I got mugged, I rang his buzzer, 'cause I didn't have keys.
I'm callin' the cops, he's sittin' yelling at the ballplayers on TV.
- They, uh, catch the guy? - No.
There's somebody I used to work with in this precinct.
I can give him a call.
- You on the job? - Yeah, I'm a detective over in Manhattan.
It'd be great to have a cop involved with the building.
Yeah, well, it looks like I'm involved.
- Henry stood you up? - Anyways, good to meet you, Sara.
Good to meetyou.
Say thanks, Buster.
Yeah, you got a talking dog there, huh? [ Chuckles ] - Detective Simone.
- Hello.
- I'm hoping you'll have your daughter back real soon.
- Thank you.
Uh, Mrs.
Garza, just got here.
She met Andy- Detective Sipowicz.
- D o-Do you have news about Crystal? - [Sipowicz Clears Throat] I know this is hard on you, but we'd like to ask more questions.
I don't know where to look for her.
I don't know who took her.
This is to give us more background, Mrs.
Garza.
Maybe think of more avenues to pursue.
- You work three nights a week? - Uh-huh, cleaning office buildings.
And your husband takes care of your daughter at those times? - Yeah, he's good with her.
- We got a six-month-old.
I know they can try your patience.
But he's good with her, your husband, don't lose his temper? Oh, no, not at all.
D oes Ricardo ever take any sort of drugs? Take any sort of drugs? Well, I-I noticed when we talked to him before, he's, uh, built up.
I wasjust wondering ifmaybe he takes steroids, anything of that sort? Why are you asking about him? Ricardo didn't take the baby.
- Nobody said he did, ma'am.
- Then what are these questions about? - He loves his daughter, all right? - Th-These questions might Lead us to other acquaintances, Mrs.
Garza peopleyou orRicardo might not suspect.
He asked about people in the neighborhood that might want to take Crystal and I couldn't think of anyone like that.
- How long have you been married? - A year.
We're together off and on since 1 990.
I knowhim inside andout.
Believe me, he's a good, good guy.
- Does Ricardo ever hit you? - [ Scoffing Laugh ] - Because he's muscular, that makes him violent? - Does he ever hit you? No, he doesn't hit me.
And, no, he doesn't take drugs.
Oh, my God! Isn't it enough our baby's missing? [ Sobs ] Why are you doing this? You're supposed to be helping us.
You're supposed to be helping.
Believe me, Mrs.
Garza, how much we want to find the baby.
This is the type case we wanna solve.
We're gonna run this for our boss, get his impression.
We very much want to solve this.
[ Sobbing Continues ] Hey-ho, everybody! ChefGotelli's homemade cannolis! Just a little, uh, early for night watch, huh, Vince? What can Isay, Medavoy? The thought of my fellow detectives breaking their balls to make this city a place you wanna live in- I just had to do something nice for you guys.
I love Cannoli.
Suck the goo right out of 'em.
- Okay.
Hey, Bobby, cannoli? - Gotta see the boss, Vince.
Stu? Andy? All right, later.
There's no connection between the Cannoli and the delegate's campaign, right, Vince? I bring in my homemade Cannoli frequently Medavoy, campaign or not.
You see the, uh, nice mugs James Martinez gave out? Oh, yeah? Those edible? I know you were looking for an update, boss.
I was lookin' for it five hours ago.
I asked Sipowicz and Bobby to form an impression on this guy.
And was the wife protecting him? We had to bring her in.
Nobody saw the baby in the pizzeria.
You gotta like the guy, but there's nothing to go at him with.
Wife's a hundred percent supportive.
- Credible? - You'd have to know more.
And we're sure there's nothing with Child Welfare? They got no file, Lieu.
And the neighbors all say they're good people.
- How long they in the building? - Eight months.
- How about the neighbors where they lived before? - I didn't look at that.
- Well, look at it, Stu.
- I definitelywill.
Baker's in at 4:00.
We'll go out.
I definitely wouldn't turn it over to Missing Persons.
We're covering the bases.
We'll keep it how it is for now.
So, uh, I go lie down 40 minutes upstairs, have a full tank when Baker gets in? - Sounds like a plan.
- [ Mutters ] Well, thanks.
Keep up with it.
Sure, but it's- it's Stu's case.
Stu's a big boy.
And it's the squad's case - and I want you to keep up.
- Okay, boss.
Hey Andy, Bobby, I left the cannolis in here.
Yeah, great, Vince.
I'm an idiot for supporting that guy.
- Hey.
- How's it goin'? - [Simone ] How's it goin'? - Okay.
We on for dinner tonight? You know, that jerk stood me up before.
- I rode all the way out to Brooklyn.
- That guy in your building? Yeah, that Henry.
I gotta go back and shake him up.
- Okay.
- [Martinez] Hey.
- How's it going, James? - Ah, you know, I'm a little nervous.
- All be over tomorrow, James.
- Yeah.
I heard Vince brought up some Cannoli, huh? - [Russell] Mm-hmm.
- Evidently that's his whole reelection platform.
[ Huffs ] D on't resort to negative campaigning, Martinez.
Yeah, you're right.
Point taken.
- Good night, guys.
- [Simone ] Goodnight.
- Goodnight.
- Goin' over to your mom's, huh? Yeah.
- Night, D iane.
- Night, Andy.
Yeah, good night.
How 'bout we reach out to where that Garza works? - See what they say about him there.
- Yeah.
But in the morning, huh? You can't worry too much with Morrissey's feelings.
Oh, I know that.
How 'bout that, uh, Vince Gotelli? He's like a dealer with free snorts.
Appeals to a person's weaknesses.
Greg.
Henry.
Henry, it's Bobby Simone.
Open the door - or I'm gonna use this damn passkey! - [Locks Rattling] - D o not stiff out on our appointments.
- I left a message at your work.
- No, you didn't.
- I left a message- - No, you didn't! - It's not conveyed, that's on them.
[ Sighs ] - Henry, I talked to the lawyer today.
- Yeah, I talked to him too.
You're welcome to this place, it's not worth 1 0 cents anyhow.
- That's why you didn't show up? - I can only take one screwin' a day.
The lawyer tell you that you could live here rent-free as long as you like? Yeah, my heart leapt up.
Your mom, she was real specific on that.
And-And it's true, you know, at present doesn't look like there's much equity in this place, but that could change.
- I'm not lookin' to get over on you.
- What are you bothering me for? Hey, you little piss pot! I'm tryin' to tell you you're gonna get a fair shake.
What? Fiveyears? Ten years? Wait'll the market turns around? I'm afraid to walk down the street.
Go to my door, I'm afraid I'm gonna get shot through the peephole! Henry, if you’ve got a problem, I might be able to help you.
- Who's jamming you up? - I'm jammed up by you.
You're my problem.
Yeah, it's me that's gonna shootyou through the peephole? My mother's my problem- running bait-and-switch my whole life.
Come back with her dyin', nursin' her with smells you can't believe.
And then she does this to me? D o I have to pay my utilities? I'll pay foryour utilities.
What, do you gamble? Is that what you're into? You use drugs? I'll jump in when you're veering off.
- Well, who doyou owe? - What, you gonna pay 'em? I might be able to get you some time.
Who should I talk to? - Look, it's my problem.
- You're not the type who keeps problems to himself.
No, you wanna make a big mess, plus keep screwing up which I got an idea's how your moms ran up her mortgage.
I'm done talking toyou.
Get the hell out of here.
You must get hit a lot, right? Go ahead and hit me.
I'll sue the city.
Get straight.
Beat it! [ Grunts, Exhales ] - [Whirring] - [ Grunting ] [ Whirring Continues ] Oh, hi.
How's it going? - How you doin' with that? - Uh, I, uh- I evidently don't got the hang of it.
I keep sinking to the bottom.
- You gotta pump faster.
- I'm getting shin splints as it is.
- [ Machine Beeping ] - Oh.
- Try now.
- [Whirring Resumes ] Ah, that's better.
Yeah, that's much better, Abby.
- Thereyou go.
- Yeah.
So, uh, I-I-I- I was actually making it harder on myself uh, for-for-for- for just starting out.
- That's right.
- Yeah.
So- So there's hope for meyet, huh? - Absolutely.
- [ Chuckles ] [ Chattering] [ Chattering] - Andy.
- What's going on? I got a situation, Andy.
I mean, I think I screwed up bad.
Midnight- this woman walks into the squad says she saw Morrissey's kidnap go down.
- The Garza baby? - Yeah, she's across the street from that pizzeria she sees a Puerto Rican kid run out with a baby under his arm.
So she's backing up the father's story.
She gives up the Puerto Rican by name, which I run through B.
C.
I.
and this guywas collared for selling dope in '94.
- Where we gonna reach out for this guy? - I picked him up.
- I've been leaning on him for four hours.
- Whoa, whoa.
Hey, Vince.
- Where's Morrissey? - He went home at 11:00 last night.
- You didn't call him at home when this woman came in? - He needed sleep, Andy.
- He was dead on his feet.
- Plus, maybe, you get to be a hero? Andy, the point is, I beat the balls off of this guy.
He says he was at the Knicks game.
Occur to you that he might not have done it, Vince? Maybe this woman -was runnin'something with the baby's father.
-She seems like a decent person.
Sh-She said she saw it go down.
And-And the guy she gives up is a known scumbag.
- I beat this guy's balls off!.
- Where is he? He's in Number 2 Here.
Here's his pedigree.
- Vince.
Call Morrissey.
- All right.
- How do you say this guy's name? - Nene.
Nene? He should be collared just for that.
How's it goin', Nene? I'm Detective Simone.
This is Detective Sipowicz.
I don't belong here.
I swear on my mother.
We got an eyeball witness tellin' us you snatched up that baby.
No way.
That don't even make sense.
[ Scoffs ] Given your criminal history, what don't make sense? Like I told the other guy if I sell dope or not, how the hell does that make me a kidnapper? Maybeyou call it settling a drug debt.
[ Laughs ] What am I gonna do with a baby, huh? Think about that.
It makes no sense.
- You know Ricardo Garza? - No, I don't.
Except what I saw on TV like everybody else- him and his wife talking about what happened.
Garza, he don't buy dope from you, nothing like that? - No.
- All right.
Listen up, Nene.
If no harm's come to this baby, we still have a little bit of flexibility here.
Everyminute that goes by that she stays missing it's gonna get harder for you to come out from under this.
It couldn't have been me, all right? The night before last I was at the Garden watching the Knicks/Magic.
I was with Bobby Rock and Joe Vasquez.
Call 'em.
They'll tell you.
We're gonna call your boys, they're gonna clear this up, huh? I probably got the ticket stub in my pants pocket at home, man.
- Come on! - Hey! Our witness is a decent citizen.
- Who would you believe? - All right.
All right.
So, you guys wanna start swinging on me too, huh? Huh? If you wanna kick my ass for being a dealer, I'll take that.
I can take a ass-whippin'.
But it's not gonna change what I say about that kidnap.
So, come on.
Come on.
- You think I messed up? - I think you wasted a good beating, Vince.
Oh, damn it! That's the witness, Mrs.
Valentin.
- You bring her in? - No, she's in on her own.
She wants to know if we, uh, picked this Nene up.
You know, she could be a straight-out nut job too.
Don't have to be hooked up with Garza, you mean? I beat the balls off of this guy.
Does it sound like he's gonna sue? - Geri, uh, you heard from the lieutenant? - He's got root canal.
- Right.
- He's not gonna tell Fancy, is he? Shut up, Vince.
Let's, uh, see what this woman's about.
Hi, I'm Detective Simone.
- I'm a day shift detective working with D et.
Gotelli.
- This is Detective Sipowicz.
- How's it goin'? - Hello.
We understand you have some information regarding the Garza kidnapping.
- I saw Nene Lopez take that baby.
- Take the baby from where? The pizza place.
I was standing right outside.
D id he confess? Uh, he said you brought him in.
You say it was Nene Lopez.
I guess you must have known him by name already.
No, he's known all over the neighborhood.
D oyou want me to pick him out of a lineup? I mean, I'm willing to do that.
I'll tell you, Mrs.
Valentin, we're not really sure this is really Nene Lopez.
I'm wonderin' if you could take a look at him in our interview room? Not picking him out if he did or didn't take the Garza child- -Just for checking his identity, so there's no confusion.
- Okay.
I wantyou to have the right person.
Right this way, ma'am.
You beat him.
Good.
Did they beat you, uh? You bastard! - Good.
I hope you burn in hell! - You got strong feelings on him, huh? That's the animal got my sister hooked on drugs.
I hope theybeatyousome more! How could you do this? - She was an angel! - No, no.
No- Nene didn't kidnap that kid, did he? Mysisteris an angel.
But on this missing baby here, Mrs.
Valentin Nene's not involved? No.
Come on, I'll get you a ride home.
Maybe you should drive her, Vince.
Bone up for a try at a livery career.
[ Scoffs ] What the hell are we gonna do with this guy now? Stay here.
Oh, man, who leaves the furnace on in October in here, huh? What the hell is going on here? It's hotter than hell inside here! - Who was screaming before? - Don't you worry about who was screaming before, Nene.
You got plenty else to worry about.
This is wrong, man.
I've done some foul things, but not this thing.
Shut up.
Come here.
Come on.
Come here.
Sit down.
Here.
You sit down here, huh? I'm gonna see, can you stand up to all your big talk before, Nene, huh? See, that detective that tuned you up during the night - he was out of practice.
- Why don't you think about that baby, man? The time you're wasting on me, the kidnapper's out doing his thing.
So, if you don't go for the kidnapping, you're still going tojail for 1 0 years, Nene, behind selling dope.
We got four undercovers bought intoyou.
Yeah.
- Oh, God.
- Yeah.
And I'm gonna get a statement on it.
I'm gonna beat your balls off.
This son-of-a-bitching furnace! Come on! Turn this heat down, will ya! D amn! Is he goin'? Come on! [ Gotelli] Go for it! It's a 12-foot drop.
It's nothing! There! He went! [Sighs ] Oh, Andy, you're the best.
All right, Vince.
What's the matter with you, Gotelli? - You interview a suspect on my case, and you don't call me? - Take it easy, Stu.
- I gotta hear from the desk sergeant? - It's all taken care of.
- The hell it is! You guys knew about this? - We walked into it, Morrissey.
And when are you gonna have enough steam to ask is the guy right for the kidnap? - Is he? - No, smack dealer, Stu.
- The woman wanted to hurt him for hookin' her sister.
- We took care of it.
- We gotta talk to the mother again.
- [Sipowicz] On what? Child Welfare found another kid under her maiden name living with a grandmother.
- With the grandmother? - Gonna find out what that's about.
I gotta go home, fellas.
Stu, I 'm sorry it went down this way.
- Just don't ever try to pull a case out from under me.
- I understand.
- This affects your ballot, I'll understand that also.
- Yeah, right.
- D id you happen to, uh, vote yet, or- - I voted already for Martinez.
- No hard feelings.
- Get some rest, Vince.
That's how I got into this jackpot, trying to spare Stu.
I mean, everybody said he was exhausted.
Why do you think she don't admit to the other kid? - It's welfare thing- I-I- I don't know.
- Hey, Lieu.
You had a root canal, huh? I, uh took a call downstairs at the switchboard from Brooklyn Homicide.
They got a motorist who saw a pedestrian on the Brooklyn Bridge dump a black satchel in the river, Monday night around 7:00.
Motorist says he saw Ricardo Garza's picture in the paperyesterday.
He thinks Garza's who dumped the satchel.
- Let's bring the driver in to have a look at him.
- You get Garza.
Brooklyn's bringing the motorist to the bridge, so he can point out the spot.
- Scuba team's been notified? - Yeah, stay with the divers till you see what they come up with.
- Then bring the motorist over here.
- [Simone ] Yeah, okay.
-So we're looking at a dead kid.
-Just get Garza, all right, Stu? We'll find out what we're looking at.
Yeah.
Good.
- I'm gonna lock up in here.
- Yeah.
- Hey, Gina.
- Hey.
- Did you get lost? - No, I was looking for you.
D id you leave this on my desk? Oh, yeah.
I was upstairs.
I, uh- - I had an extra mug on me.
- It's great.
I'll use it for my tea.
- That's good.
- I didn't realize you were involved in an election.
Yeah, for union delegate.
Postmark deadline's tomorrow - on all the ballots so- - I hopeyou're gonna win.
- My opponent's got a lot of seniority- - But he can't be as good a guy.
Well, that's nice of you to say that.
Thanks.
- Anyways, uh, good night, Gina.
- Good night, D etective.
- Yeah.
- I'm gonna toast you with my tea mug.
- Your election.
- Ah, deal.
Yeah.
Can you put the weight with the baby's father? - The guy's a bodybuilder.
- How are you gonna go at 'em? - He's seen dumping the body.
We know he's involved.
- So, go at her first? I got her in the coffee room.
[ Simone ] See where she's at, Stu.
You are gonna go at her first, right? Yeah, I got the husband in 2.
Uh- I give up we know the baby's dead, all right? - What? - I reallywouldn't, Stu.
If she’s innocent, you want to move her from protecting her husband you give her the kid to hold to.
- Why don't we go in with you.
- We can all come at her from different directions.
Yeah.
Good.
D id you find something out? [ Sighs ] We found out Bureau of Child Welfare says your daughter's not your only child.
Theysayyou have a son, John, under your maiden name - opened an abuse file in 1 993, when he was four years old.
- Where's your son now? Um, living with my grandmother.
- So you won't beat him no more? - I never beat him.
Your son was four in 1993 and you told us you started living with Ricardo in 1 990.
- So Ricardo's not your son's father? - No.
- If you didn't beat your son, who beat him? - D id Ricardo beat your son? You're the two adults in the residence.
This has nothing to do with Crystal.
- Where's your son living now, Mrs.
Garza? - My grandmother.
So Ricardo don't beat him no more? Where's my baby? Where's my baby? I-I sent Johnny to my grandmother so he'd be out of the house.
And you didn't need to know that, because it's nothing to do with Crystal.
- Ricardo would never hurt her.
- He'd hurt the one but not the other.
Johnny is not his natural son.
Crystal is his.
And he promised he would never raise his hand.
And I know in my heart Ricardo did not hurt her.
But nowyou're gonna think that he did and that's gonna- that's gonna stop you from getting the real kidnapper and finding my baby and bringing her back to me.
[Mrs.
Garza Sobbing] Uh, I want to apologize for not telling you this before, Mrs.
Garza but we had to make sure that you weren't involved.
We recovered Crystal's body a few hours ago.
[ Sobs, Whimpers ] It wasn't Ricardo.
It- It wasn't him.
- Mrs.
Garza.
- Mmm.
Mrs.
Garza, Ricardo was seen disposing ofCrystal's body.
Oh, God! Oh, God! Co-Could I have saved her? Co-Could I have saved her if I said to suspect him? She was probably already dead before she was reported missing.
- We're gonna find all that out.
- Tell us what we need to go at him with.
You hold together enough to do that? - [ Groans ] - Can you do that for Crystal? [ Panting ] [ Whimpering ] - Mm-hmm.
- Okay.
[DoorOpens ] You use that weight at home, right? Building yourself up? Isn't that right? - It's like that, yeah.
- Not like that.
- That weight.
- What, did you take it from my place? - No.
- Don't look at him.
Look at me.
We found her body in the river, Ricardo, in a satchel with that 10-pound plate in it to weigh it down.
You were seen throwing it in with that gift God gave you inside.
- Throwin' her in the river.
- Ricardo, Elise says sometimes you're upset about her paying Crystal attention.
Did some aspect of that go on, andyou lostyour temper later? - No.
- How did your daughter die? Because a cold's coming on, okay, and she's crying.
And I know what's gonna happen, all right? With my wife up with her all night, or between us in the bed with an accident, where she's crying and crying, and I ask her and one time, to be quiet- I raised a hand, and that's all that happened, all right? I don't know what happened, she hit her head or what accident- It was accidental.
So you made it up about the pizzeria? And buried her like that to spare mywife or she would always look at me with hate.
Now she's gonna hate me.
He gave it up.
He wants a cup of coffee, then he'll give a statement.
- Mother still in there? - Bobby's sitting with her.
This asshole wants to talk to her.
- Not till he gives his statement.
- And she gets a no.
I tell her he gave it up, right? Tell her now? Son of a bitch.
He wasn't getting enough attention.
- [Elise Screaming] - [ Sipowicz Groans ] - Give Stu a chance, Andy.
- [ Weeping ] [ MorrisseyWhispering, Indistinct ] - [Weeping Continues ] - He's doing okay.
[ Yawns ] - All done? - Mm-hmm.
[ Snaps Fingers, Claps Hands ] I could go foryou just for your cooking.
The rest is just a bonus, huh? Uh-huh.
That's why I'm ready to keep walking on eggshells till you decide to treat me like a human again.
Whoa, Diane.
You don't want to get married.
You don't think that's supposed to make a difference? The difference would be if we did get married.
I wanna be like we were.
Well, you may like pretending, I'm not with that.
I'm sorry if that’s what you think I've been doing.
That's what I think you’ve been doing.
You had a lot of practice.
- You talking about myfamily? - You're the one that's always putting 'em between us.
- 'Cause that's a lousy thing to say.
- [Beeping] Come on, Diane.
The last thing that I want - is for us to be going off on each other, all right? - [ Chuckles ] Shows you what a dope I am.
I thought tonight might be about us getting back together.
Well, I think what we need to do is work on how we're gonna be.
Maybe we should just back off.
More than we already have? [ Laughs ] So who's leaving the country? - [ Beeper Clattering ] - What do you got? Brooklyn Homicide.
- [ Simone ] Savino? - Hey.
- Your building, huh? - Yeah.
How'd this happen? Looks like an execution.
Nothing's taken.
- She got shot through the peephole in her door.
- What? - [Dog Whimpering] - Hey, Buster.
Hey.
It's all right.
- Where-Where are you with him? - He found her.
Just another one ofyour tenants, right? - Can I talk to him for a second? - Sure.
- What went on here, Henry? - What do you mean, what went on here? - She got murdered.
- And who did it? What'reyou asking me for? I'm asking you, 'cause you're in it to your hips, you little twit.
Everything all right? Yeah.
Got a little coincidence here.
Yesterday, this one tells me somebody's gonna shoot him through the door.
I got nothing to do with this! My God, I found her.
- I called it in.
- Shut up! Um, let me ask you something.
[Police Radio Chatter] - You wanna cool your jets a little? - He's in the middle of this.
You know, Ipreferit ifyou'dhave told me the door stuffin private and anything else you might know, and then I go at him how I see fit.
I was out on the street yesterday talking with this girl, man.
And today, I got a murder to solve, okay? Yeah.
Okay.
[ Sighs ] Hey, I'll take care ofthat dog ifyou want.
- She let me walk that dog.
- You are gonna be busy, Henry! Yeah, Mr.
Coffield.
I've got some questions for you.
