"MARTINEZ ELECTED DELEGATE IN MILD UPSET.
" She bought the dog 19 days before she was killed.
DID SHE MENTION ANYTHING AT ALL ABOUT WHAT THE GUY LOOKED LIKE WHO MUGGED HER? I DON'T LIKE WHAT'S GOING ON HERE.
YOU ASK ME TO COME IN HERE, AND THEN I FIND OUT THAT I MAY HAVE TO DO THIS ALL OVER AGAIN WITH A DETECTIVE SAVINO.
SHE WAS A NICE GIRL, AND SHE WASN'T BOTHERING NOBODY.
I JUST DIDN'T WANNA BELIEVE THAT IT COULD BE CONNECTED.
THAT SOMEONE WOULD DO SOMETHING LIKE THAT TO A STRANGER.
SHUT UP.
LOOKIN' GOOD, ANDY.
YOU'RE AWARE I'M A MARRIED GUY, CORRECT, GERI? - YES, I AM.
- ALL RIGHT THEN.
[ Chattering ] SO, I DID MY FAMOUS ITALIAN DETECTIVE PHONE IMPERSONATION LAST NIGHT WITH THAT DOG BREEDER.
YOU SAID YOU WERE SAVINO? TOLD HIM WE WERE VERY GRATEFUL FOR HIS COOPERATION, WOULDN'T NEED TO SPEAK WITH HIM AGAIN.
THIS HENRY FINALLY ADMITS TO ME THAT HE OWES SHYS.
THINKS THEY WERE INVOLVED KILLING THE GIRL? JUST THREE PAYMENTS LATE.
THERE'S A BEATING IN IT FOR HIM BEFORE THEY WHACK A STRANGER.
YEAH.
WHAT DO WE GOT? ROBBERY-ASSAULT.
PRINCE LASZLO FORSMANN AND CAROLYN WHITEHALL.
THEY GOT BEAT UP AND HOG-TIED.
SHE MIGHT BE CHECKING OUT.
BUT HE CAN TALK? YEAH.
HE'S GONNA BE TREATED AND RELEASED.
YOU DIDN'T PASS GAS IN FRONT OF THE PRINCE, I HOPE.
NO, I CONTROLLED MYSELF.
- PRINCE FORSMANN? - YES.
HAVE YOU MADE AN ARREST? NO, SIR.
NOT YET.
I'M DETECTIVE SIMONE.
THIS IS DETECTIVE SIPOWICZ.
SHE'S IN A COMA.
SHE MIGHT DIE.
AND THEY EXPECT ME JUST TO SIT HERE.
WELL, WE'LL TRY NOT TO KEEP YOU AWAY FROM HER TOO LONG, SIR.
CAN YOU HELP US WITH, UH, HOW THE ROBBERY HAPPENED? OF COURSE.
I WAS WATCHING TELEVISION, AND SOMEHOW THE DOORS WERE UNLOCKED BECAUSE THEY JUST WALKED IN.
HOW MANY OF THEM WERE THERE? TWO.
ONE WAS BIGGER AND TALLER.
HE PULLED MY WIFE FROM THE BEDROOM.
HE BEAT HER BECAUSE SHE WAS FIGHTING HIM.
THEY BEAT ME WHEN I TRIED TO HELP.
AFTER THAT I WAS UNCONSCIOUS.
I DID EVERYTHING I COULD.
DID IT SEEM LIKE THEY WERE LOOKING FOR SOMETHING PARTICULAR OR JUST RANSACKING THE PLACE? I SAW THE PAINTINGS WERE MISSING.
VERY EXPENSIVE PAINTINGS, ALL PRECIOUS TO MY WIFE.
WHEN YOU SAY EXPENSIVE, ANY IDEA HOW MUCH THEY WERE WORTH? OH, MAYBE SEVEN FIGURES.
I DON'T KNOW FOR SURE.
WE'RE GONNA NEED YOU TO WRITE DOWN YOUR INSURANCE CARRIER SO WE CAN MAKE A LIST.
WELL, GIVE ME SOMETHING.
ANY, UH, WORKMEN IN THE APARTMENT LATELY? ONLY THE MAID.
SHE HASN'T BEEN IN FOR TWO DAYS.
SHE'S BEEN OUT SICK.
YOU THINK SHE MIGHT BE INVOLVED? NO.
SHE'S BEEN WITH MY WIFE FOR 11 YEARS.
I NEED TO GO TO MY WIFE NOW.
SHE'S SUFFERED ENOUGH.
ALL RIGHT.
WE'RE GONNA BE HANDLING THE CASE FROM HERE ON IN.
ANYTHING FURTHER COMES TO MIND, WE'D REALLY APPRECIATE YOU CALLING US.
I DON'T WANT THEM TORMENTING HER HERE.
- WHAT KINGDOM ARE YOU FROM? - I'M A PRINCE OF HOLSTEIN.
MY WIFE IS AMERICAN.
LET ME COLLECT MYSELF.
THEN I NEED TO BE WITH HER.
SURE.
STAY HERE.
SEE HOW THIS GUY ACTS WITH HIS WIFE.
SURE.
YOU THINK HE WAS IN ON IT? ANY PRINCE VICINITY OF A CRIME, I GOTTA LOOK HARD AT.
- EXCUSE ME A MINUTE.
JAMES.
- YEAH.
GOT A MINUTE? SURE.
SEE YOU UP THERE.
ALL RIGHT.
I'M TRYING TO KEEP THE SARGE OUT OF THIS.
WHAT'S GOIN' ON? WE'RE CALLED TO A DISTURBANCE AT A BEAUTY PARLOR, TWO WOMEN TEARING EACH OTHER'S HAIR OUT.
WHAT I GET THROUGH THE SCREAMING, THEY'RE BOTH MARRIED TO JESSE ORTIZ.
OUR JESSE ORTIZ? THEY BOTH GOT RINGS, THE WHOLE SHOT.
THE MRS.
ORTIZ IN THE 124 ROOM IS ROSARIO.
I THINK SHE'S GOT SENIORITY.
SHE'S WORKING AT THE SALON.
SHE HEARS THIS OTHER WOMAN TALKING ABOUT HER NEW HUSBAND.
A DETECTIVE.
HOW SHE DON'T LIKE HIM DOING NIGHT TOURS.
AND THEY'RE BOTH REFERRING TO JESSE? YEAH.
I'VE GOT HER IN THE RADIO ROOM.
THE MORE RECENT MRS.
ORTIZ.
-WHAT DO YOU GOT ON PAPER? - NOTHING.
THAT'S WHY I'M DUCKING THE SARGE.
THEY BOTH WANNA FILE FOR ASSAULT.
I FIGURED THE SITUATION NEEDS A DELEGATE.
HAS ORTIZ BEEN CONTACTED? YEAH.
I LEFT A MESSAGE.
HE BETTER GET IN.
AH.
ALL RIGHT.
I APPRECIATE YOU KEEP THEM ON ICE TILL I TALK TO HIM.
ALL RIGHT.
GREAT TO BE A DELEGATE, HUH? YEAH.
MAKE A MEMO BOOK ENTRY SO IF IT GOES TO WORK, YOU'RE COVERED.
ALL RIGHT, THANKS.
[ Russell ] DOORMAN AT FORSMANN'S BUILDING SAYS TWO MOVING GUYS SHOW UP THIS MORNING, SAY THEY'RE ON A PICKUP FROM THE MUSEUM.
TWENTY MINUTES LATER, THEY WALK FIVE PAINTINGS OUT THE FRONT DOOR.
- DOORMAN SAID HE CALLED UP TO ANNOUNCE 'EM? - HE SAYS HE DID.
- GOT THE PLATE OFF THEIR VAN.
-INSURANCE COMPANY FAXED US PHOTOCOPIES OF THE PAINTING.
ART EXPERT FROM MAJOR CASE GOT US A FENCE LIST, AND THE STATE DEPARTMENT WANTS TO BE KEPT ON TOP OF THE PRINCE'S CONDITION.
GUY'S LOOKING TO TOE-TAG HIS WIFE.
YEAH.
HE WANTS A "DO NOT RESUSCITATE" ON HER CHART SO SHE DON'T HAVE TO BE TORMENTED NO MORE.
IS THAT SO SHE CAN'T GIVE EVIDENCE? ANYONE IN THE BUILDING GIVE ANYTHING ON THE PRINCE? NO ONE'S TOO FORTHCOMING.
VERY BIG ON PRIVACY.
OKAY.
WORK ON THE VAN PLATE, AND CHECK ON THOSE FENCES.
WAS HOLSTEIN IN THE OLYMPICS? - I DON'T KNOW.
- YEAH, I DON'T WATCH THE GYM EVENTS.
HEY, MARTINEZ, WHAT'S GOING ON? LET'S TALK IN HERE, JESSE.
I GET THIS MESSAGE FROM SHANNON.
NOBODY'S HURT, BUT I SHOULD COME IN.
LET'S TALK INSIDE.
SHANNON'S GOT TWO WOMEN DOWNSTAIRS, BOTH OF THEM SAY THEY'RE MARRIED TO YOU, JESSE.
- THEY GOT INTO IT THIS MORNING AT A BEAUTY SALON.
- WHOA.
- WHOA, HUH? - ANNA AND ROSARIO? - YOU GOT MORE CANDIDATES? - [ Sighs ] WHAT THE HELL'S ANNA DOING DOWN THERE? SHE GETS HER HAIR DONE BY HER WORK.
I WANTED TO GET YOUR STORY BEFORE I TALK TO 'EM.
I'M IN THE DARK.
UH-- LOOK, I GOT A GIRL ON THE SIDE, ANNA.
SHE DOESN'T SAY SHE'S YOURGOOM,JESSE.
SHE SAYS SHE'S MARRIED TO YOU.
OH, MARTINEZ, COME ON.
I TELL HER WHAT SHE WANTS TO HEAR.
YOU KNOW WHAT THAT'S ABOUT.
THESE WOMEN WANNA FILE ASSAULT CHARGES ON EACH OTHER.
COMPLAINTS GO TO PAPERWORK.
THE 61's ARE GONNA HAVE YOUR NAME ON IT.
- AND THAT GOES STRAIGHT TO I.
A.
B.
- OH, MAN, THIS IS CRAZY! IF YOU TELL ME THE TRUTH, MAYBE I CAN STRAIGHTEN THINGS OUT.
ALL RIGHT.
I'M MARRIED TO ROSARIO.
MM-HMM.
I TOLD ANNA THAT THERE'S A POSSIBILITY OF A DIVORCE.
AND IF THAT WENT DOWN, THEN WE'D BE GETTING MARRIED.
AND THAT'S THE TRUTH? THAT'S WHAT I TOLD HER.
YEAH.
YES.
SO, UH-- ANNA'S WEARING A WEDDING RING.
THAT'S LIKE WHAT, WISHFUL THINKING? I GAVE HER THAT LIKE AN ADVANCE PRESENT.
LIKE A DOWN PAYMENT ON THE MARRIAGE.
ALL RIGHT, JESSE.
LET ME, UH-- LET ME GO TALK TO THE WOMEN IN YOUR LIFE.
FINE.
YOU GET THE WORD 'CAUSE I DON'T KNOW WHAT THE HELL'S GOING ON HERE.
YOU MARRIED? NO.
IT'S A BEAUTIFUL THING, BUT IT'S A MINEFIELD.
DON'T GO DOWNSTAIRS FOR NO SODAS, ALL RIGHT? GOT YA.
HI.
YEAH.
I WAS WONDERING-- WHAT'S GOING ON, JAMES? I HAD A LITTLE UNION BUSINESS, LIEU.
YEAH.
OKAY.
CALL DETECTIVE SIMONE, THANKS.
THE VAN'S REGISTERED TO A DONALD CARTER IN NASSAU.
I LEFT WORD FOR HIM TO CONTACT BOBBY.
THEY'RE TALKING TO FENCES.
WHAT'S UP? YOU GOT NEXT TO A JIMMY LIERY WHEN YOU WERE WITH VICE? YOU KNOW TERRY NORTON, GOT WHACKED? YEAH, WEST SIDE GUY.
WE WANTED TO FLIP LIERY TO GET TO NORTON.
WHEN NORTON GOT WHACKED, THEY PULLED ME OUT.
ORGANIZED CRIME BUREAU WANTS YOU BACK ON HIM.
YOU WANT TO DO THAT? WHY DO THEY WANT HIM? HE'S INVOLVED WITH SOME CARGO THEFT AT KENNEDY.
THEY DIDN'T GIVE ME A LOT OF DETAILS.
I DON'T KNOW IF I STILL FIT THE SKIRT.
WELL, IF YOU DON'T WANT TO DO IT, DIANE, I'LL SAY YOU'RE IN THE MIDDLE OF SOMETHING HERE.
I CAN STILL WORK OUT OF THE OFFICE, RIGHT? MM-HMM.
I'M NOT DETAILED OVER? NO.
YEAH, THAT'S OKAY.
YOU THINK I'D LET 'EM TAKE YOU AWAY FROM HERE? THANKS, BOSS.
YOU KNOW, STATISTICS SHOW YEAH, HUH? YEAH.
85% MINIMUM.
EXCUSE ME.
CAN I HELP YOU? I'M DETECTIVE SIMONE, AND THIS IS DETECTIVE SIPOWICZ.
HERE IN WHAT CONNECTION? [ No Audible Dialogue ] WE'RE MAKING ALL THE GALLERIES AWARE HERE THAT THESE PAINTINGS WERE JUST STOLEN.
THANK YOU, STEVEN.
COULD I GET YOU GENTLEMEN SOME COFFEE? THEY DON'T NEED ANY COFFEE, STEVEN.
WHAT'S IN THE TRUCK? EXCUSE ME? LETRUCK.
WHAT'S IN IT? THEY'RE PHOTOGRAPHS FROM A RECENT INSTALLATION.
I'M, UH, VICTOR CHARLES.
I OWN THIS GALLERY.
ARE YOU WITH THE POLICE? YEAH.
THOSE PAINTINGS WERE STOLEN.
- WELL, WE DON'T DEAL IN STOLEN PROPERTY.
- AS OF WHEN? WELL, WE SHOW THAT YOU WERE ARRESTED FOR CRIMINAL RECEIVING FIVE YEARS AGO, MR.
CHARLES.
THAT WAS A COMPLETELY INADVERTENT INCIDENT.
BRYCE-- THAT'S VERY COMMENDABLE.
DO YOU ALSO SHOW THAT I WASN'T CONVICTED? ANY TIME THERE'S A CRIMINAL RIPPLE IN THE ART COMMUNITY, YOU FACE HARASSMENT.
THE PEOPLE THESE PAINTINGS BELONG TO HERE, THEY WERE BOTH ASSAULTED, OKAY? AND ONE OF THEM, SHE LOOKS LIKE SHE'S GONNA DIE.
- ARE YOU TALKING ABOUT CAROLYN WHITEHALL? - HOW'D YOU COME TO THAT? I'M FAMILIAR WITH THE CONTENTS OF SERIOUS COLLECTIONS, DETECTIVE.
- SHE'S GOING TO DIE? - THE PEOPLE THAT STOLE THESE PAINTINGS BEAT HER UP BAD.
AND, UH, WAS THE PRINCE HURT AS WELL? - HE WAS ROUGHED UP SOME.
- LOOK, THE POINT IS HERE, MR.
CHARLES, THAT IF ANYONE APPROACHES YOU ABOUT THESE PAINTINGS, YOU'RE GONNA BE IN TOUCH.
BEING AS HOW THAT BEEF FIVE YEARS AGO WAS SO INADVERTENT.
OF COURSE.
THANKS FOR YOUR TIME.
I COULD HAVE USED THAT CUP OF COFFEE.
TOLD YOU, BOBBY.
THREE OUT OF THREE.
STATISTICS DON'T LIE.
EXCUSE ME.
GOOD LUCK.
HOW YOU DOING, MRS.
ORTIZ? I WANT TO TALK TO MY HUSBAND.
I WAS HOPING WE'D TALK FIRST ABOUT THE BEAUTY PARLOR.
HE CHEATED ON ME AGAIN.
THAT'S WHAT HAPPENED.
AND WHILE I'M WORKING, HE'S GIVING HER MONEY SO SHE CAN GET HER HAIR DONE.
- YOU AND JESSE BEEN MARRIED HOW LONG? - EIGHT YEARS.
- AND THAT'S CONSECUTIVE, RIGHT? - WHAT DO YOU MEAN? - YOU WERE NEVER DIVORCED? - SOMEONE SAID WE'RE DIVORCED? I'M JUST TRYING TO GET THINGS STRAIGHT.
HEY, LISTEN.
WE ARE MARRIED.
ALL RIGHT? I DON'T KNOW WHAT HE'S GOT WITH HER.
BUT IT'S NOTHING LEGAL.
I CAN TELL YOU THAT.
SO, THAT'S REGARDING YOU MATRIMONIAL SITUATION.
ON THE, UH, SALON INCIDENT, UH-- YOU'RE GONNA DO WHAT YOU THINK IS RIGHT.
I JUST WANT YOU AWARE THAT IF A COMPLAINT IS PURSUED, IT COULD BE HIGHLY DAMAGING TO JESSE'S CAREER.
I DON'T WANT TO FILE A REPORT.
ME AND JESSE CAN TAKE CARE OF THIS AT HOME.
BUT HE'S GONNA PAY.
- OF COURSE, THAT'S BETWEEN YOU AND HIM.
- BELIEVE ME, HE'S PAYING.
BUT IN TERMS OF POLICE INVOLVEMENT WITH THIS INCIDENT, YOU, UH, BE WILLING NOT TO PURSUE THAT? HOW'S HE GONNA PAY SUSPENDED? HMM? OKAY.
JUST GIVE ME A COUPLE MINUTES.
I'M DETECTIVE MARTINEZ.
I'M ASSIGNED TO RESOLVE YOUR DISPUTE.
YOU WANNA RESOLVE IT? LOOK AT THESE PHOTOS, 'CAUSE THESE WILL PROVE WHO'S BEING TRUTHFUL.
WHAT ARE THESE GONNA BE? WEDDING PHOTOS OF ME AND JESSE.
- REALLY? - LOOK.
THAT'S FATHER VEGA DOING THE CEREMONY.
JESSE AND ME CUTTING THE CAKE.
- THAT'S SOME BIG CAKE.
- FOUR TIERS.
BEST WEDDING I EVER BEEN TO.
SO, ANNA, WHEN'D YOU GET MARRIED? SIX MONTHS AGO.
TWO WEEKS AFTER THE DIVORCE CAME OFFICIAL.
WHEN YOU SAY IT CAME OFFICIAL, IS THAT WHAT JESSE TOLD YOU? I GOT THE PAPERS IN MY PANTY DRAWER.
IS THAT RIGHT? NOW, I'M RETURNING MY GIRLFRIEND'S WALLET, RIGHT, WHO'S THE MANICURIST OVER THERE? HERE'S THE OTHER ONE TALKING LIKE HER AND JESSE ARE STILL MARRIED, WHICH I WALKED ON EGGSHELLS FOR THAT WOMAN THREE AND HALF YEARS WHILE SHE WAS HIS LEGAL SPOUSE.
ANNA, IF I SENT YOU HOME WITH OFFICER SHANNON, WOULD YOU BE ABLE TO GET THOSE DIVORCE PAPERS AND THE WEDDING LICENSE? THAT OUGHT TO HELP SOME PEOPLE BACK TO REALITY.
UH-HUH.
YOU KNOW, JERRY SPRINGER DID A WHOLE THEME SHOW ON WHAT'S UP WITH HER-- "DENIAL'S NOT A RIVER IN EGYPT.
" DETECTIVE SIPOWICZ FROM THE 15th SQUAD.
WE JUST FAXED YOU SOME PHOTOCOPIES OF STOLEN PAINTINGS ALONG WITH THE SQUAD PHONE NUMBER.
APPRECIATE YOUR RETURNING THE CALL FROM THE GALLERY THERE WHEN YOU RETURN FROM YOUR LONG LUNCH.
THANKS VERY MUCH.
HI, MY NAME'S DONALD CARTER.
I WAS CONTACTED CONCERNING MY VAN? WHO CONTACTED YOU, SIR? I'M DETECTIVE SIMONE, MR.
CARTER.
- YOU CALLED ABOUT MY VAN? - YEAH, UH, WHY DON'T WE GO AND HAVE A CUP OF COFFEE? ANDY, THIS IS MR.
CARTER.
HOW'S IT GOING? WAS IT INVOLVED IN SOMETHING? VAN'S NOT IN YOUR POSSESSION? NO, IT WAS STOLEN.
BY A GUY NAMED LARRY DUNCAN.
HAVE A SEAT.
HE'S A HOD CARRIER.
HE WORKED FOR ME, LIKE, FIVE YEARS AGO.
CALLS ME LAST MONTH, AND I HIRE HIM BACK, JERK THAT I AM.
HE MUST'VE STOLEN IT FROM THE SITE LAST NIGHT.
- SO, THIS GUY WAS AWAY? - JUST GOT OUT OF RIKERS.
YOU'RE SURE HE TOOK IT? I LEAVE THE VAN AT THE SITE.
I SEEN HIM WATCH ME STASH THE KEY IN THE VISOR, LIKE THE JERK I AM.
HE'S BEEN STEALING STUFF THE LAST WEEK.
SO WHY DIDN'T YOU REPORT THE VAN STOLEN THIS MORNING? I WAS HOPING HE'D DO WHAT HE HAD TO AND BRING IT BACK, AND THEN I COULD FIRE HIS ASS.
HE DO SOMETHING REAL BAD? YOUR VAN WAS INVOLVED IN A ROBBERY WHERE SOME PEOPLE GOT HURT.
THE TITLE'S IN MY NAME, BUT I WAS HOME WITH MY PREGNANT WIFE.
SHE'LL CONFIRM IT.
WERE THE PEOPLE HURT BAD? - WHERE CAN WE FIND DUNCAN? - ALLS I GOT'S A BEEPER NUMBER.
UH, I WENT OUT ONCE LAST NIGHT TO THE GROCERY FOR, LIKE, 15 MINUTES.
MY WIFE'S PREGNANT.
ALL SHE DOES IS EAT TANG TANG NOODLES.
I'M AT A LOSS.
HEY, JESSE, GIVE ME A BREAK.
THAT'S NOT YOUR SIGNATURE? IT LOOKS CLOSE.
THAT'S YOUR SIGNATURE, JESSE.
AND THAT'S WHERE YOU SIGNED ROSARIO'S NAME.
WHAT, ARE YOU TAKING THEIR SIDE, MARTINEZ? WHOSE DELEGATE ARE YOU? I'M YOUR DELEGATE, JESSE.
TRYING TO GET YOU TO ACKNOWLEDGE THE SITUATION.
YOU'VE BEEN TELLING HALF-TRUTHS ALL DAY.
EITHER COME CLEAN NOW, OR I WASH MY HANDS OF IT.
YOU COULD LOSE YOUR SHIELD AND EVERYTHING ELSE.
I'M ON THE PROMOTION LIST FOR A SECOND GRADE.
YOU DID A FORGERY HERE.
GRADE PROMOTION IS OUT THE WINDOW AND YOUR FREEDOM IN GENERAL, UNLESS YOU STAND UP.
I'M MARRIED TO ROSARIO.
I SAID THAT.
MM-HMM.
WE ARE NOT DIVORCED, AND ANNA AND I ARE NOT MARRIED.
WHERE DID YOU GET THE DIVORCE PAPERS? I MADE 'EM UP.
THERE'S NO SEAL, BUT ANNA DIDN'T KNOW THE DIFFERENCE.
YOU GOT A JUDGE'S NAME IN HERE.
WHO'S THAT? THAT'S THE FIRST JUDGE I EVER WON A CASE WITH.
FIGURED IT'D BRING ME LUCK.
WHAT ABOUT THE WEDDING? IT WAS JUST A BIG PARTY.
THE PRIEST WAS A FRIEND WHO'S TRYING TO BE AN ACTOR.
SO YOU TRICKED ANNA? IF YOU WANT TO PUT IT IN THOSE WORDS.
ARE YOU PREPARED TO MAKE SOME SORT OF GESTURE TOWARDS HER NOT TO PURSUE HER LEGAL REMEDIES? I GOT TO BE WITH ROSARIO.
SHE'S MY WIFE.
I WAS GONNA DIVORCE ANNA IN A FEW MONTHS ANYWAY.
JESSE, WHAT ARE YOU PREPARED TO DO FOR ANNA TO SMOOTH THE WATERS? SHE CAN KEEP THE RING.
I'LL TAKE HER ON A TRIP.
YOU'RE NOT GONNA TAKE HER ON A TRIP.
WELL, WHAT'S YOUR CONCEPT, JAMES? WHAT'RE YOU GOING FOR? I'M THINKING SOME FINANCIAL GESTURE WITH A SINCERE APOLOGY.
I CAN DO THAT.
I'M PAYING TWO UPKEEPS AS IT IS.
OKAY.
OKAY, THAT'S WHAT I'M GOING FOR IN EXCHANGE FOR BOTH OF THEM WITHDRAWING THEIR COMPLAINTS.
OKAY? BEAUTIFUL.
YEAH.
AGAIN, DETECTIVE SIPOWICZ.
IF YOU WOULD PLEASE CALL WHEN YOU RECEIVE THIS MESSAGE.
ALL RIGHT.
GOT IT.
THANKS.
THESE GALLERY HUMPS, THEY OPEN AT 11:00, THEY EAT FIVE-HOUR LUNCHES.
HOW THEY DO ANY BUSINESS? LARRY DUNCAN'S GOT TWO COLLARS FOR GRAND LARCENY.
DETECTIVES, THERE'S A MIKE ROBERTS ON THE PHONE.
DOES HE SOUND LIKE HE'S SELLING RAFFLE TICKETS? HE SAYS IT'S REGARDING THE FORSMANN CASE.
WHAT LINE? TWO.
ROBERTS.
YEAH.
WHAT DO YOU GOT? HI.
HOW'S IT GOING? THAT VAN OWNER DO YOU ANY GOOD? YEAH.
HE GAVE US A GUY TO LOOK AT.
GOOD.
O.
C.
C.
B.
WANTS ME BACK ON A GUY I GOT NEXT TO.
YEAH, HUH? YEAH.
WHEN I WORKED VICE.
HE WAS, UH, HOOKED UP WITH TERRY NORTON.
NOW THEY'RE LOOKING AT HIM FOR CARGO HIJACKS.
NORTON'S THE GUY WHO GOT SHOT OVER IN SUNNYSIDE, RIGHT? MM-HMM.
MY GUY'S JIMMY LIERY.
YOU'RE GONNA DO IT? - YEAH.
THEY WERE JUST FILLING ME IN.
-[ Sipowicz ] ALL RIGHT, BYE.
[ Exhales ] VERY MYSTERIOUS, ROBERTS.
VERY BIG DEAL.
SOMETHING VERY TASTY FOR US.
- YEAH, HUH? -YEAH.
PROBABLY YESTERDAY'S LUNCH.
SEE YA.
YEAH.
MY PREVIOUS COLLEAGUES.
HOW'S IT GOING, ROBERTS? REAL GOOD, ANDY.
HOW'S IT GOING, SIMONE? GOOD, MIKE.
HEY, COME ON.
LET'S HAVE A BIG LUNCH, HUH? - JUST COFFEE FOR ME.
- [ Woman ] YES.
I DON'T KNOW IF YOU GOT MY NOTE, ANDY, HOW SORRY I WAS ABOUT YOUR BOY.
NO.
WE'D HAVE WROTE YOU BACK.
OH, GOD, YOU DIDN'T GET IT? YEAH, I SENT YOU A LETTER OF CONDOLENCE.
ANYWAY, HOW'S THE BABY, HUH? - FINE.
- MIKEY, WE'RE KINDA PRESSED FOR TIME HERE.
SORRY, SIMONE.
I'M TRYING TO CATCH UP WITH THIS GUY.
ANDY AND I GOT A LITTLE HISTORY, YOU KNOW? YOU SAID YOU HAD SOMETHING ON THESE ROYAL PEOPLE? YEAH, THREE WEEKS AGO, SHE CALLED ME UP.
I DID SOME WORK FOR ONE OF HER FRIENDS.
GAVE ME THE STRONGEST POSSIBLE RECOMMENDATION.
THE PRINCESS, SHE CALLED YOU UP? THINKS HER HUSBAND'S SQUIRING EXTRACURRICULAR NOOKY, WANTS ME TO CHECK HIM OUT.
LOOK AT THAT.
A RAINBOW COALITION.
THE PRINCE IS A BUSY BOY, HUH? I THINK THE ONE'S WORTH A CONVERSATION IS THE BLONDE WITH THE EIGHT-FOOT LEGS.
SHE'S A HOSTESS DOWN AT THE TRIBECA GRILL.
TWO COLLARS FOR SHOPLIFTING.
HERE YOU GO.
SEE THE GUY THERE? THAT'S HER MOPE BROTHER, LARRY DUNCAN.
WE'LL LOOK HIM UP.
THE PRINCESS SAW THESE PICTURES? OH, YEAH.
THE PHOTOS AND THE RECORD.
SHE DID HANDSTANDS.
SO, I GUESS WE GOT TO LIKE THIS PRINCE, HUH? GOT A PEDIGREE ON THIS GIRL? YEAH.
IN THE ENVELOPE, ADDRESS AND EVERYTHING.
ALL RIGHT, THANKS, ROBERTS.
HEY, WE SCRATCH EACH OTHER'S BACKS, RIGHT? HEY, YOU KNOW, I'M REALLY SICK YOU DIDN'T GET THAT LETTER OF CONDOLENCE.
- HEY, DID YOU KNOW HIS KID? - YEAH.
WASN'T HE A HELL OF A SWEET KID? YEAH, ABSOLUTELY.
YOU KNOW, CONNIE'S MAKING NOISES ABOUT GETTING BACK TOGETHER AGAIN.
SHE'S DISCOVERED SOME GOOD NEW QUALITIES ABOUT MY CHARACTER.
TAKE CARE OF YOURSELF, ROBERTS.
THANKS FOR YOUR HELP.
YEAH.
DON'T MENTION IT.
THANK FANCY FOR ALL THE PHONE CALLS TO SEE HOW I WAS DOING TOO, HUH? YOU THINK THE POST OFFICE SCREWED UP ON THAT CONDOLENCE NOTE OR THIS GUY'S FULL OF CRAP? OH, MY MONEY'S ON MIKE.
HOW'S IT GOING? THIS IS A BAD GUY.
-[ Sipowicz ] WHAT'S HE DOING? - BIG SHOW EVERY 10 MINUTES, THEY GO CHECK ON HER-- "WHAT'RE YOU DOING?" THIS AND THAT, PULLING HIS HAIR.
THEN HE GOES TO PULL THE RESPIRATOR TWICE SINCE THEY SAID SHE'S MORE RESPONSIVE.
- ALL RIGHT, THANKS.
- ALL RIGHT.
PRINCE, HOW ARE YOU DOING, SIR? I CAN'T STAND SEEING HER SUFFER.
THIS IS HER WORST NIGHTMARE.
SHE TOLD ME SO, MANY TIMES.
COME ON OVER HERE.
YOU'RE NOT SO TORMENTED LOOKING AT HER.
GOING TO END A VEGETABLE, THIS WAY? IS SHE, UH, ANY MORE RESPONSIVE? THEY HAVE NO IDEA.
THIS IS TECHNOLOGY RUN AMOK.
PRINCE, ANYONE YOU COULD BE WITH NOW? SOME SUPPORT FOR YOU? I HAVE NO FAMILY IN THIS COUNTRY.
CAROLYN WAS MY FAMILY.
[ Simone ] NO CHILDREN, HUH? NO.
GOD FORBID YOUR WIFE PASSES, IS THERE SOMEONE ON THE HORIZON? - WHAT DO YOU MEAN? - WELL, MAYBE SOMEONE TO TAKE HER PLACE IN YOUR HEART? - YOU INSULT BOTH OF US.
- SOMETIMES WE DO SEEM INSENSITIVE.
YOU ARE THE SOLE HEIR TO YOUR WIFE'S ESTATE? THE MEN WHO DID THIS ARE ON THE STREET, AND YOU'RE ASKING STUPID QUESTIONS? - DO YOU KNOW AN AMELIA DUNCAN, PRINCE? - NO.
PRINCE, AMELIA DUNCAN-- YOUR NUMBER ONE BANG ON THE SIDE.
YOU THINK I TRIED TO MURDER MY WIFE? ROBBED MY HOME, BEAT MY WIFE AND MYSELF? WELL, MAYBE AMELIA CAN STRAIGHTEN OUT OUR THINKING.
OH, FINE.
LET'S CALL HER.
THANKS.
SHE'S ALREADY AT OUR STATION HOUSE.
BELIEVE ME, SHE WILL MAKE NO CONNECTION.
SHE HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH THIS.
- THEN SHAME ON US.
- EXACTLY! EXACTLY! YOU'RE EXACTLY WHAT PEOPLE SAY YOU ARE.
KEEP THIS ASSHOLE AWAY FROM HER.
YEAH.
THIS JUDGE, WHO SUPPOSEDLY SIGNED, HE DON'T ISSUE DIVORCE DECREES.
AND FOR THIS DOCUMENT TO BE OFFICIAL, THERE'D HAVE TO BE A SEAL OVER HERE.
SO THE DIVORCE WASN'T REAL? JESSE'S A BIGAMIST.
HMM.
I THINK TECHNICALLY HE ISN'T, IN THE LEGAL SENSE.
HE IS MARRIED TO TWO WOMEN.
PAST THE DIVORCE DECREE NOT BEING REAL, THE MARRIAGE SUBSEQUENTLY WASN'T 100% GENUINE EITHER.
WE WERE MARRIED BEFORE WITNESSES THOUGH.
THE CLERGYMAN WAS AN ACTOR MORE THAN A GENUINE PRIEST.
AN ACTOR? I KNOW THIS IS UPSETTING TO YOU, AND SO DOES JESSE.
WHAT? BEING TAKEN FOR A FOOL, MY WHOLE LIFE TURNED INTO A JOKE? I THINK IT'S MORE A CASE WHERE JESSE GOT CARRIED AWAY WITH HIS FEELINGS FOR YOU AND WOULDN'T FACE REALITY.
YOU KNOW, "DENIAL'S NOT A RIVER IN EGYPT," RIGHT? HE'S GONNA FACE SOME REALITY NOW.
I'M NOT TAKING A POSITION ON THIS, ANNA.
BUT, UH, JESSE WANTS YOU TO KNOW THAT, IF YOU SAW YOUR WAY CLEAR OF NOT INVOLVING THE DEPARTMENT, HE ABSOLUTELY INTENDS LOOKING OUT FOR YOU.
JESSE THINKS HE KEEPS TAKING SEX OFF OF ME, HE'S DREAMING.
I'M TALKING ABOUT FINANCIALLY.
JESSE'S GOT NO MORE IDEAS IN THAT OTHER AREA.
NO, HUH? MM-MMM.
I MEAN, MY POINT IS, ANNA, ASSUMING HE'S FINANCIALLY SUPPORTIVE, WOULD YOU, UH, KEEP THE JOB OUT OF THIS? UH, ALTERED DOCUMENTS AND SO FORTH.
I WANT A THREE-WAY CONVERSATION BEFORE I LEAVE THIS BUILDING.
I WANT AN APOLOGY IN FRONT OF HIS WIFE, THAT SHE UNDERSTANDS I WAS MISLED.
YOU DON'T FIGURE IT'D BE BETTER MORE OR LESS TO LET THE WATERS CALM DOWN? SHE HEARS HIM APOLOGIZE TO ME, OR EITHER I BLOW THE WHISTLE ON HIM TO HIS BOSSES AND EVERYONE ELSE.
WELL, THE ASSAULT COMPLAINT, THAT-- THAT YOU'VE AGREED TO DROP? I'M HER IN THAT SHOP THINKING I'M STILL MARRIED, I'D HAVE SWUNG AT ME MYSELF.
[ Exhales ] OKAY, UH-- JUST LET ME SET UP THE APOLOGY.
JUST A MOMENT.
AMELIA DUNCAN IS IN THE COFFEE ROOM, - AND THIS IS DETECTIVE SAVINO.
- ALL RIGHT.
THANKS, GERI.
HEY, SAVINO, WHAT'S DOING? [ Geri ] DO YOU HAVE JUST A MINUTE FOR ME? WHAT'S UP? DO YOU SEE WHAT'S UNDER MY BLOUSE? WHAT, ARE YOU CRAZY? OH, I'M NOT TALKING ABOUT MY BREASTS.
BUTTON YOUR BLOUSE.
MY UNDERGARMENT IS RUBBER.
- [ Clears Throat ] - IT'S HOLDING ALL MY FLUIDS IN.
ALL RIGHT.
ANDY, YOU WANT TO TALK TO THIS GIRLFRIEND? YEAH.
BOBBY-- [ Clears Throat ] THAT WOMAN IS A MENACE.
GERI? JUST MADE A PASS AT ME.
SAID SHE'S WEARING A DIVING SUIT UNDER HER CLOTHES.
- HOW IS THAT A PASS? - I'M TELLING YOU WHAT HER INTENTIONS WERE.
THANKS, JOSH.
HOW'S IT GOING, AMELIA? GREAT.
WE'LL TRY NOT TO HOLD YOU HERE TOO LONG, OKAY? YEAH.
THAT'S WHY I'VE BEEN SITTING HERE AN HOUR AND 10 MINUTES.
YOU GOT A RECORD, AMELIA? I LIFTED SOME C.
D.
's.
I WASN'T WORKING.
WELL, YOU WEREN'T WORKING IN '88 AND AGAIN IN '93.
SOME SPECIAL GROUP YOU WANTED TO LISTEN TO? YOU KNOW A PRINCE LASZLO FORSMANN? - WHAT'S THAT? - ANSWER HIS QUESTION.
- NO.
- HE'S THE GENTLEMAN SQUEEZING YOUR ASS HERE, AMELIA.
THE PRINCE'S APARTMENT WAS ROBBED THIS MORNING.
I DIDN'T HAVE ANYTHING TO DO WITH IT.
YOU GOT A BROTHER LARRY, AMELIA? TOOK TWO COLLARS FOR G.
L.
A.
? SO I DATED LASZLO, AND MY BROTHER'S GOT A RECORD.
BIG DEAL.
I-- I DON'T EVEN KNOW WHERE LARRY IS.
HE'S RIGHT NEXT TO YOU AND THE PRINCE THERE, AMELIA.
THAT'S LARRY SUPERVISING LASZLO'S GRAB-ASS.
WHAT IS ANY OF THIS HAVE TO DO WITH A ROBBERY? LARRY DIDN'T DO ANYTHING.
CUT THE CRAP, AMELIA.
LARRY DROVE THE VAN FOR THE ROBBERY, AND HE LOADED ON THE PAINTINGS BELONGED TO THE PRINCE'S WIFE-- THAT'S MINIMUM.
GIRL LIKE YOURSELF, AMELIA-- YOU KNOW, FREQUENT ACCESS TO THE PRINCE'S PANTS.
MAYBE YOU LIFTED THE APARTMENT KEY.
WELL, I DIDN'T.
WELL, YOU BETTER TELL US WHAT YOU DID DO, ALL RIGHT? BECAUSE RIGHT NOW YOU'RE LOOKING REAL GOOD FOR ACTING IN CONCERT, AND THAT LADY MIGHT DIE.
I JUST TRIED TO HELP SOME PEOPLE.
STARTING WITH WHO? MY BROTHER WAS WORKING FOR THIS GUY WHO WAS GONNA FIRE HIM.
LARRY'S GOT A RECORD, AND IT'S HARD FOR HIM TO FIND A JOB.
YOU FIGURED TO TIDE LARRY OVER WITH A ROBBERY? I DIDN'T FIGURE ANYTHING.
LASZLO WANTED TO RIP HIMSELF OFF.
HIS WIFE DOESN'T PAY HIM ENOUGH, AND GETTING FOUND OUT WITH ME DID NOT HELP HIS SITUATION.
HIS WIFE'S GOT HIM ON ALLOWANCE? SHE DOESN'T EVEN GIVE HIM AN ALLOWANCE.
[ Gasps ] CAN YOU IMAGINE? HE HAS TO BEG HER ALL THE TIME.
HE DECIDED HE WAS SICK OF IT.
SO HE DECIDED TO SELL SOME OF HER PAINTINGS.
- BUT FIRST HE HAD TO GET 'EM STOLEN? - HE WORKED THAT OUT WITH LARRY.
- I DON'T KNOW ABOUT THAT.
- AND DID HE WORK OUT GETTING HER SKULL BEAT IN? LASZLO WOULDN'T DO SOMETHING LIKE THAT.
HOW 'BOUT LARRY? LARRY'S GOT A REALLY BAD TEMPER.
UM-- [ Sniffs ] IT ALWAYS SCREWS HIM UP.
HOW AM I GONNA GET MYSELF OUT OF THIS? WHERE ARE WE GOING TO FIND LARRY, AMELIA? COLLINS SELF STORAGE.
IT'S, UM-- IT'S ON AVENUE "D.
" THEY'VE GOT PACKING STUFF THERE FOR THE PAINTINGS.
- YOU KNOW WHO THEY'RE GONNA SELL 'EM TO? - NO.
- [ Sighs ] - I DON'T, OKAY? I SWEAR.
I JUST WAS TRYING TO HELP MY BROTHER.
YOU DIDN'T WANT THE PRINCE TO CUT YOU IN ON THE PROFITS? THAT WAS BETWEEN HIM AND HIS CONSCIENCE.
MM-HMM.
THE PRINCE ISN'T A COLLAR OFF WHAT THE GIRLFRIEND GAVE YOU.
WE GET LARRY TO CORROBORATE.
TELL HIM HIS SISTER GAVE HIM UP, HE'LL TRY TO LIE HIS WAY OUT OF IT.
- BETTER SAY THE PRINCE DID IT.
- HE'S GOT TO KNOW THAT SCUMBAG'S ELIGIBLE.
TAKE GREG AND DIANE.
- WHAT'S JAMES DOING? - SOME KIND OF UNION BUSINESS, HELPING JESSE ORTIZ.
THAT ORTIZ ALWAYS LOOKS LIKE HE NEVER SLEEPS.
PUT THAT DOWN.
[ Medavoy ] PUT YOUR HANDS UP.
COME HERE.
-FOR WHAT? - JUST PUT 'EM UP.
- WHAT'S YOUR NAME? - LARRY.
LARRY DUNCAN.
THIS IS ONE OF 'EM.
WHAT DO YOU KNOW ABOUT THAT PAINTING THERE, LARRY? NOTHIN'.
IT'S STOLEN.
-YOU GOT FIVE STOLEN PAINTINGS THERE.
-HOW AM I SUPPOSED TO KNOW THAT? - DON'T KNOW MUCH, DO YOU? LIKE WHICH PRINCES RAT.
- THAT SCUMBAG GAVE ME UP? - NO, WE SHOWED UP OFF A GOOD GUESS.
- THAT PRINCE GAVE YOU UP.
I HOPE HE TOLD YOU THIS IS 100% HIM, EVERYTHING THAT WENT DOWN.
NO, BUT MAYBE YOU'LL HELP US FLESH OUT THE PRINCE'S ROLE.
TURN AROUND.
THOSE ART FRUITS AND THE GIRLFRIEND'S BROTHER BOTH GIVE THIS GUY UP.
-SO YOU'RE BRINGING HIM IN? -YEAH.
THEY'RE BRINGING HIM FROM THE HOSPITAL.
- WHAT ELSE? - [ Sighs ] NOTHIN'.
COME HERE.
YOU AND ME ARE GONNA COME TO AN UNDERSTANDING 'CAUSE THIS CAN'T GO ON NO MORE.
I'M SORRY I SURPRISED YOU.
I WANTED YOU TO KNOW OUR BOND.
YOU'RE ALL CONFINED INSIDE.
I FELT THAT COMING OFF YOU THE MINUTE WE MET.
GERI, MY OPINION, YOU'RE 100% NUT JOB, BUT WE DON'T HAVE TO GET INTO THAT.
I WANT YOU TO KNOW RESTRAINT AS FREEDOM AND PLEASURE INSTEAD OF HURT FROM THE PAST.
AND I'M TELLING YOU WE'RE THROUGH TALKING ABOUT WHAT YOU'RE WEARING OR NOT WEARING AND WHAT'S HOLDING YOUR FLUIDS IN.
CAN'T WE DO THIS SOMEWHERE ELSE? NO, WE CAN'T.
THIS IS OUR LAST PERSONAL CONVERSATION.
ANDY.
RIGHT DOWN THIS WAY, PRINCE.
GO AHEAD.
RUBBER'S GREAT FOR WEIGHT LOSS.
SIT RIGHT THERE.
DON'T TOUCH ME.
PLEASE, DON'T TOUCH THE PRINCE.
HMM.
HERE IN AMERICA, PRINCE, THE EXPRESSION FOR YOUR SITUATION IS "TOTALLY SCREWED.
" OH, YOU ARE VERY PROUD OF "HERE IN AMERICA" AND YOUR LITTLE CULTURAL JOKES.
"HERE IN AMERICA" IS THE TOILET 2,000 YEARS IS FLUSHED DOWN.
- WHAT DOES HE MEAN BY THAT? -WE'LL SEE MY LAWYER'S DESCRIPTION OF MY SITUATION.
I'M NOT SOME IGNORANT MONKEY TO BE TRICKED.
OH, YEAH, A LAWYER'LL BEAT THIS FOR YOU, PRINCE.
NO PROBLEM.
YOU GOT YOUR GIRLFRIEND GIVING YOU UP, HER BROTHER SAYING THAT YOU PUT HIM UP TO IT.
NOT TO MENTION SIEGFRIED AND ROY PAINTING A TARGET ON YOUR HEINIE.
YOUR ART DEALER PALS SAID THAT YOU REPRESENTED THOSE PAINTINGS WERE YOURS TO SELL.
HOW IT STANDS NOW, PRINCE, JURY LOOKS AT YOU, THEY SEE A SPOILED LEECH TRIED TO MURDER HIS WIFE FOR HER MONEY.
WHEN SHE DIDN'T CROAK IN THE APARTMENT, YOU TAKE ANOTHER RUN AT HER IN THE HOSPITAL.
OH, YES, THEY WON'T BE FOR ME HOW THEY WERE FOR 0.
J.
SIMPSON.
YOU DIDN'T BRING THEM THE SAME KIND OF WONDERFUL THRILLS ON THE FOOTBALL FIELD.
YOU DON'T KNOW WHAT FOOTBALL IS.
SEE, I DON'T THINK YOU WERE LOOKING TO HURT YOUR WIFE THERE, PRINCE.
BUT THE FACT IS THAT SHE IS HURT, VERY BADLY, AND YOU'RE THE ONLY ONE THAT CAN EXPLAIN HOW THAT HAPPENED.
BECAUSE OF SOME MORON WITH NO SELF-CONTROL-- THE WHORE'S BROTHER.
MY ONLY CRIME IS A WEAKNESS FOR WHAT A WOMAN HAS BETWEEN HER LEGS.
YEAH? WELL, THAT'S A BIG CLUB.
SEE, THE ANGLE YOU WOULD PLAY IS, UH, A LITTLE MORE REMORSE? THE MORON, HE HITS ME.
THE BRUISE ON MY HEAD IS REAL.
YEAH, BUT REMORSE, PRINCE.
A LITTLE MORE REMORSE FOR WHAT HAPPENED TO YOUR WIFE.
DUMB AMERICAN JURY, YOU MAY GET AWAY WITH IT.
YES.
YES.
I AM VERY SORRY.
ANNA, I WANT TO APOLOGIZE TO YOU-- MISLEADING YOU ON THE WEDDING CEREMONY AND ON MY DIVORCE SITUATION WITH ROSARIO.
SO, SHE UNDERSTANDS MY THOUGHTS YOU WERE SINGLE -AND NOT BEING ANY HOME-WRECKER.
-OH, LIKE SHE MET HIM THE DAY THEY HAD THE CEREMONY.
I BELIEVED HE WAS DIVORCED.
WHICH LEAVES HER A TRAMP FOR WHEN SHE STARTED BANGING HIM.
SO, BUT IS THAT SATISFACTORY, AS FAR AS JESSE APOLOGIZING IN FRONT OF ROSARIO? YEAH, 'CAUSE SHE DON'T WANNA HEAR REASON ANYWAY.
WE SHOULD TAKE CARE OF THE REST AMONGST OURSELVES.
AM I RIGHT, JAMES? THAT'S WHAT I RECOMMEND.
-I WANNA RETAIN THE DIVORCE DOCUMENTS.
-HOW IS SHE GONNARETAINTHEM - IF I GOT THEM IN MY PANTY DRAWER? -IT'S A FORGERY ANYWAY, HONEY.
I WANT A RECORD OF WHAT YOU TRIED TO DO HERE.
POSSESSION'S NINE POINTS OF THE LAW.
-YOU WANNA HOLD IT OVER ME, THAT'S WHAT YOU WANT.
- LET'S CALM DOWN.
THIS IS SO SHE CAN JAM ME UP IN THE FUTURE.
- THAT'S WHAT YOU WANNA GO HOME TO.
- YOU JUST SAID A MOUTHFUL.
COME ON.
LET'S NOT LET THINGS UNRAVEL HERE.
I CAN ONLY HAVE YOU IF I LET YOU WALK ALL OVER ME, JESSE, -AND I GIVE UP MY SELF-RESPECT? - I DON'T THINK THAT'S WHAT JESSE'S SAYING HERE.
WHAT I THINK IS YOU COULD SHOW SOME COMMON COURTESY WHEN PEOPLE TRY TO MEET YOU HALFWAY.
- THAT'S WHAT HE WANTS TO GO HOME TO.
- HEY-- - KNOW WHAT? MAKE THOSE DIVORCE PAPERS REAL.
- CAREFUL WHAT YOU'RE SAYING.
OH, I KNOW WHAT I'M SAYING.
MAKE THE PAPERS REAL, AND YOU CAN KISS MY ASS.
BUT IN TERMS OF THE ASSAULT CHARGES, UH, THOUGH, WE'RE STILL QUITS? NO CHARGES, NO TROUBLE WITH THE DEPARTMENT.
I WANT HIS PAYCHECK FOR ALIMONY.
YOU WANT HIM, YOU GOT HIM.
BUT HE'S GONNA HAVE YOU DOING HAIR INSTEAD OF GETTING IT DONE, SAME AS HE DID ME.
ARE YOU ALL RIGHT, JESSE? SOME DELEGATE YOU ARE.
HEY, JESSE, YOU CAN KISS MY ASS TOO.
HEY, GINA.
HI, JAMES.
HOW'D IT GO TODAY? MY BOSS SAID BEFORE LUNCH I'M DOING A PRETTY GOOD JOB.
YEAH, SERGEANT LORENZO? UH-HUH.
I'LL TELL YOU, HE DON'T THROW AROUND COMPLIMENTS.
HOW WAS YOUR DAY? I, UH, HAD DELEGATE BUSINESS.
IT WAS, UH, WILD.
GUY MARRIED TO TWO DIFFERENT WOMEN.
WOW.
I ALWAYS FIGURED ONE MARRIAGE WOULD BE COMPLICATED ENOUGH.
A DETECTIVE IN THIS PRECINCT? I DON'T WANT TO SAY ANY NAMES.
I GUESS IT'S HOW LAWYERS WORK, THE SENSE I DIDN'T APPROVE OF THIS GUY VERY MUCH, BUT I STILL FELT HE DESERVED A DELEGATE.
YEAH, BUT YOU'RE A BETTER GUY THAN A LAWYER.
YEAH, I-- I HOPE SO.
SO, I WAS, UH, WONDERING-- YOU KNOW, I DON'T KNOW HOW YOU'RE GONNA FEEL ABOUT THIS, BUT I THOUGHT YOU MIGHT ENJOY GOING SOMEWHERE AFTER WORK.
JUST THE TWO OF US.
WE COULD HAVE A BEER OR WHATEVER YOU LIKE.
I DON'T DRINK, BUT I'D LIKE TO GO OUT WITH YOU.
WOULD YOU LIKE TO GET SOME DINNER? ENJOY SPANISH FOOD, ITALIAN? THAT'D BE GREAT.
ALL RIGHT.
I'LL BE THROUGH IN ABOUT 20 MINUTES.
DON'T RUSH NOTHING.
KEEP ON THE SARGE'S GOOD SIDE.
I'LL MEET YOU DOWNSTAIRS? YEAH.
I'LL MEET YOU ON THE FIRST FLOOR.
ALL RIGHT? LET ME GET MYSELF SOME OF THIS WOMAN TROUBLE.
SO, DID YOU GET OVER TO HEADQUARTERS? YEAH.
THEY'LL LOOK TO HOOK ME INTO THE GUY ONE OF THE NEXT COUPLE NIGHTS.
I CAN WORK MY CHART THOUGH, BOSS, AT LEAST TILL WE SEE WHERE IT GOES.
SO, WHAT'S THE DOWNSIDE, DIANE? YOU KNOW, THERE'S, UH-- THERE'S SOME BEHAVIOR.
NOT TOO MUCH BEHAVIOR.
NOT UNLESS THE GUY'S READY FOR A HELL OF A SLAP ON HIS WRIST.
HOW'S THE PRINCE? WANTS ME TO ASK THE GIRLFRIEND TO GIVE UP THE WATCH HE GAVE SO HE DON'T HAVE TO USE LEGAL AID.
- SHE'S GOT TO GO FOR THAT PROPOSITION? - HE'S GOT TWO WEAK CASES.
YOU CALL THE TUNE ON THE BEHAVIOR.
RIGHT.
GOOD NIGHT.
GOOD NIGHT, LIEU.
- CALL THE TUNE ON WHAT? - LIERY.
- OH, YEAH, WHAT'S HIS ACT? - I'M A BIG GIRL, BOBBY.
[ Scoffs ] WELL, WHAT'S HIS BEHAVIOR? WE'RE A COUPLE MICKS.
WE DRANK.
GREAT.
I'LL FIND OTHER WAYS TO KEEP HIM AMUSED.
GOOD NIGHT.
YEP, GOOD NIGHT.
GOOD NIGHT, BOBBY.
YEAH, GREG.
GOOD NIGHT.
HEY, JAMES.
HEY, GREG.
I HEAR JESSE ORTIZ HAD YOU RUNNING AROUND ALL DAY, HUH? YEAH.
MY GRANDMOTHER USED TO TELL ME GOD COULDN'T THINK UP THE TROUBLE FOR US WE GET INTO OURSELVES.
YEAH.
THAT'S WHAT THIS PUT ME IN MIND OF.
SO, DID YOU GET HIS PROBLEM STRAIGHTENED OUT? I THINK I KEPT HIM FROM GETTING JAMMED UP DEPARTMENTALLY.
EINSTEIN COULDN'T STRAIGHTEN HIS PROBLEMS OUT.
YOU KNOW, I-- I THINK I'VE LOST SIGNIFICANTLY MORE WEIGHT.
YEAH? WHY DON'T YOU STEP ON THE SCALE? IT'S RIGHT IN THERE, JAMES, BUT I'M NOT GETTING ON.
NO INTERIM WEIGHT-CHECKING WAS MY APPROACH COMING IN, AND I'M KEEPING TO THAT.
AND-AND WHAT'S INTERESTING, THAT THE DISCIPLINE I'VE GOTTEN OFF DIETING, NOW MAKES ME CAPABLE OF KEEPING THAT WORD.
OH, YEAH? THINGS MIGHT BE LOOKING SOMEWHAT UP FOR ME TOO.
YEAH? GOOD.
IN WHAT SENSE? I'M TAKING GINA OUT FOR DINNER.
YEAH? THAT'S GREAT, JAMES.
- I'M LOOKING FORWARD TO IT.
-YEAH.
SO, WHAT-WHAT TYPE OF A MEAL DO YOU ANTICIPATE HAVING? OH, WE'RE THINKING ALONG THE LINES OF SPANISH OR ITALIAN.
AND YOU KNOW WHAT, JAMES? EITHER OF THOSE NATIONALITIES, IT'S ABSOLUTELY FEASIBLE TO DINE SENSIBLY.
YEAH.
WELL, ANYWAYS, I'LL LET YOU KNOW HOW IT TURNS OUT.
PROVIDING I CAN STILL SEE YOU.
JAMES, I TURN SIDEWAYS, PEOPLE QUESTION WHERE I WENT.
[ Chuckles ] NIGHT, GREG.
ATTABOY.
WHAT DID THE GIRLFRIEND SAY ON THE WATCH? SHE SAID THE PRINCE COULD GO SCREW HIMSELF.
DID YOU TELL HER THAT WAS AN "A" ANSWER? [ Chuckles ] WHERE'D YOU GO WITH SAVINO AND THOSE LOAN SHARKS? YOU KNOW, SAVINO, HE DON'T THINK THEY'RE RIGHT.
SAYS THEY STOOD A GOOD TUNE-UP.
WHAT'S THE MATTER? THEY GOT THIS ONE GOING OUT ON AN UNDERCOVER.
WHY? SOME GUY SHE WORKED BEFORE.
I GUESS HE'S DOING SOME BIG STUFF OVER AT KENNEDY.
YOU MIGHT WANT TO HAVE A TALK WITH HER, CONNECTION WITH YOUR PROGRAM.
- BEHIND WHAT? - WELL, LET HER TELL YOU.
THE GUY LIKED TO DRINK.
HEY, I DON'T KNOW HOW TO TALK TO HER.
I DON'T KNOW HOW TO TALK ABOUT HER.
YOU'RE IN LOVE WITH HER, AND SHE IS BACK.
YOU'RE TRYING TO WORK IT OUT.
NOT CLEARING MANY CASES LATELY.
DID WE NOT JUST GET OVER ON THE PRINCE? THERE YOU GO.
THAT MAN PROBABLY HAD PRIVATE TUTORS HIS WHOLE LIFE.
???? [ Jazz ] [ Chattering ] HIYA, MOUSE.
HI, JIMMY.
ONE FOR HER, SAME WAY.
HANG ON.
LET'S SIT DOWN.
WE'LL NEGOTIATE.
SURE.
HOW ABOUT MY CHRISTIAN FORGIVENESS? DROP ME, DROP BACK IN, I DON'T YELL, RAISE MY HAND.
I DIDN'T DROP YOU, JIMMY.
I DIDN'T RECEIVE ANY LONG, TEARY LETTERS FROM YOU.
DID YOU WANT TO MOVE TO OMAHA? COULD'VE HAPPENED.
I'D HAVE LIKED THE CHANCE TO CHOOSE, YOU KNOW, BUT-- I HARBOR NO ILL WILL, WHICH IS ANOTHER CONNECTION BETWEEN ME AND THE LADY IN CALCUTTA.
- AND NOW I'M BACK.
- THERE'S TALK THAT I'M HER BASTARD CHILD, YOU KNOW.
AND NOW I'M BACK.
YOU GOTTA DRINK WITH ME, MOUSE.
I'LL DANCE WITH YOU.
THAT'S ONE WAY TO GET A HUG.
[ Man ] ?? BABY ?? ?? NOW THAT WE'RE HERE ?? SO, WHAT YOU BEEN UP TO? OH, THIS AND THAT.
OH, YEAH? ?? IT'S EASY TO SEE ?? ?? AND PERFECTLY CLEAR ?? ?? I KNOW WHAT I HAVE TO DO ?? ?? I WILL SPEND MY LIFE ?? ?? LOVING YOU ????
