A Wrenching Experience

Previously on "NYPD BLUE".
SO IT MIGHT BE GOOD FOR ME TO BANG YOU IN THE SHOWER RIGHT NOW.
WHY DON'T WE TRY TO STAY EMPLOYED? I WAS INTERESTED TO KNOW IF YOU MIGHT LIKE TO MEET KATHY.
I ASSUME KATHY'S YOUR, UH, SI-SIGNIFICANT OTHER.
MY LOVER, THAT'S RIGHT.
THAT'S WHAT I ASSUMED.
PUNK SHOT A WOMAN AND A LITTLE BOY.
THEY'RE BOTH IN CRITICAL CONDITION.
WELL, YOU KNOW, THAT'S TOUGH.
[ Groans ] I ASKED YOU GOING INTO THAT INTERVIEW TRY TO CONTROL YOUR TEMPER.
YOU WEREN'T SO UPSET, UH, MY GOAT'S BEING GOTTEN WHEN I SMACKED THAT MENDONCA WITH THE YELLOW PAGES.
D.
O.
A.
's TONY PEREZ, 23.
GIRLFRIEND SAYS HE'S WALKIN' HER TO WORK.
THREE GUYS COME UP, START BLASTING.
WHOA.
THEY WEREN'T SAVIN' ON BULLETS.
YOU GOT ANY WITNESSES? A COUPLE OF PEOPLE SAW THREE GUYS BOOK IN A WHITE CAR.
NO ONE GOT A PLATE.
WHO'S THE GIRLFRIEND? WHAT'S HER NAME? [ Woman ] WANDA DIAZ.
ANDY.
ALL RIGHT, THANKS.
WANDA DIAZ.
THANKS.
[ Siren Wailing ] I'M DETECTIVE SIMONE, MISS DIAZ.
THIS IS DETECTIVE SIPOWICZ HERE.
WE'RE REALLY SORRY ABOUT TONY.
I'M FREEZING COLD.
ALL RIGHT.
LET'S TALK IN THE CAR.
[ Man ] STEP BACK THERE.
[ Man #2 ] LET'S GO.
[ Chattering Continues ] - MAY I ASK YOUR FIRST NAME? - WANDA.
IS IT ALL RIGHT IF I CALL YOU THAT? YEAH.
SIT RIGHT HERE.
WE REALIZE HOW UPSET YOU MUST BE THERE, WANDA.
I SAW HIM SHOT IN FRONT OF ME.
WHATEVER YOU CAN TELL US WHILE YOUR MEMORY IS FRESH, THAT'S REALLY IMPORTANT TO THIS CASE.
I WORK AT SANTORO'S BAKERY.
TONY WAS WALKING ME TO WORK.
AND WE WERE JUST WALKING ALONG, AND I DON'T KNOW-- THERE WERE THESE GUYS THERE, AND THEY GOT GUNS, AND THEY SHOOT, AND THEY SHOOT TONY, AND-- AND THEN THEY TAKE MY NEW JACKET AND DRIVE AWAY.
WANDA, COULD YOU TELL HOW MANY OF THEM WERE THERE? - THREE.
- COULD YOU DESCRIBE 'EM? - LIKE ME MAYBE-- 22, LATINO.
- GOOD.
I DON'T REMEMBER ANYTHING ELSE.
IT'S LIKE-- IT'S LIKE A BAD DREAM.
HOW'D THE SHOOTING GO DOWN? THEY SAY ANYTHING WHEN THEY CAME OVER TO YOU? -NO.
- SO THIS WASN'T LIKE AN ARGUMENT ON THE STREET? IT WAS MORE LIKE AN EXECUTION, HUH? I WOULDN'T SAY.
MAYBE SOMETHING WENT DOWN BEFORE TONY PICKED ME UP.
ARGUMENT IN THE STREET.
[ Sipowicz ] TONY SAY ANYTHING ABOUT THAT? I GOTTA CALL MY WORK, OKAY? SO TONY GETS SHOT, THEY SWIPE YOUR COAT, AND THEN THEY SPLIT? YEAH.
YOU SEE THE CAR THEY WERE DRIVING? I WASN'T LOOKING AT THE CAR.
I WAS LOOKING AT TONY BLEEDING ON THE SIDEWALK.
OKAY.
OKAY.
GOD, THIS IS OUR BABY COMING.
DO YOU MIND IF WE TAKE YOU TO THE STATION HOUSE? MAYBE YOU CAN TAKE A LOOK AT A FEW PHOTOGRAPHS OF KIND OF LIKE THE GUYS YOU DESCRIBED.
MAYBE WORK A LITTLE WITH THE POLICE ARTIST? SCREW THAT.
I'M GOING HOME.
I'M CALLING SICK AND GOING HOME.
MAYBE WE CAN HAVE A COP DRIVE YOU HOME AND BRING YOU BACK WHENEVER YOU'RE READY.
I SAID WHAT I'M GONNA SAY.
YEAH.
ALL RIGHT.
MUST'VE BEEN AFTER MY NEW SHEEPSKIN COAT.
I GOT IT NEW FOUR DAYS AGO, BUT-- DAMN, I'D HAVE JUST GIVEN IT TO THEM.
GIVE HER A RIDE HOME? SURE.
COME ON.
SHE'S SOME COLD BUSINESS.
IT'S GOTTA BE A WHACK, OR THEY'D HAVE SNATCHED HER PURSE UP TOO.
SHE DON'T KNOW WHO.
SHE SURE KNOWS WHAT IT WAS ABOUT.
MAYBE SHE'S HOLDING BACK OUT OF RESPECT FOR HER COAT.
[ Siren Wailing ] I'M READING ABOUT THE KNICKS.
I'M NOT TOO OPTIMISTIC ABOUT TONIGHT'S GAME.
THEY PLAYED THE HAWKS LOUSY, PLUS IT'S CONSECUTIVE ROAD GAMES.
- YEAH, HUH? - YEAH.
THE, UH, KID'S ROAD ENGAGEMENT'S TONIGHT TOO.
- OH, YOUR DINNER WITH ABBY? -SIX WEEKS.
EVERYONE'S SCHEDULES FINALLY MESHED.
HUH? IT'S ZERO HOUR.
YEAH.
TONIGHT THE MYSTERY'S FINALLY REVEALED.
HOW DO YOU KNOW IT'S NOT JUST MEETIN' HER GIRLFRIEND? OH, THAT'S-- THAT'S A COMPONENT OF IT, JAMES.
YEAH, ME MEETIN' KATHY, BUT THAT'S NOT THE TOTAL PURPOSE.
NO.
ABBY SAID SO WHEN WE DINED OUT.
YEAH.
WELL, TIME WILL TELL, HUH, GREG? ABSOLUTELY.
IT'S ZERO HOUR.
ANYWAYS, YOU PROBABLY WANT TO READ ABOUT THE KNICKS.

A FETCHING NECKLACE, MILO.

YEAH, STICKING UP THAT K.
F.
C.
ME AND JULIO DIAZ GOT ARRESTED FOR THAT.
THAT WOULD BE INFORMATION ALREADY IN THE DEPARTMENT'S POSSESSION, MILO.
LOOK, I GOT SOMETHIN' ELSE, ALL RIGHT? THERE WAS A THIRD GUY IN THE STICKUP.
BUT IF I GIVE UP HIS NAME AND YOU GUYS DON'T HELP ME, I'M GONNA GET SHANKED IN THE JOINT.
IF YOU HELP US CLEAR THIS PEREZ HOMICIDE, WE GIVE YOU OUR WORD IT GETS ATTENTION FROM THE D.
A.
- ATTENTION, HUH? - WE TALK TO THE D.
A.
THE D.
A.
TALKS TO THE JUDGE.
HEY, STACK IT UP AGAINST ALL YOUR OTHER OFFERS.
THE VICTIM THAT GOT SHOT, TONY PEREZ-- HE'S DOWN WITH THE LATIN KINGS TOO.
IT STARTS WITH HIS GIRL.
- THEN HE LOOKS TO DROP HIMSELF OUT.
- THIS IS WANDA DIAZ? IT WAS MORE HIS IDEA THAN HERS.
SHE WENT WITH ANOTHER KING BEFORE.
WE AIN'T LIKE THE MAFIA.
IF YOU WANT OUT, IT'S POSSIBLE.
IT CAN HAPPEN.
BUT YOU GOTTA ASK THE CROWN JEWEL'S PERMISSION.
I KNOW WE'RE CLOSING IN ON THE PEREZ HOMICIDE, MILO.
A COUPLE OTHER KINGS WANTED ME TO GO WITH THEM TO SEE TONY.
IT WAS JUST GONNA BE TALK.
THAT'S ALL.
-THE GUNS ARE JUST TO GET HIS ATTENTION? - I-I-I DIDN'T HAVE NO GUN.
THE OTHER GUYS ARE PACKIN'? YEAH.
TONY TOO.
HE SEES US.
HE THROWS DOWN.
YOU KNOW, I HID FOR COVER.
THE GUY SHOOT BACK.
THEN IT WAS OVER.
ONE OF MY GUYS TOOK THE GIRL'S JACKET 'CAUSE HE WANTED IT FOR HIS OLD LADY.
AND THE STICKUP LATER ON-- THAT WAS ALL FOR NEEDIN' MONEY TO LEAVE TOWN.
THE HEAT FROM SHOOTING TONY-- YEAH, WE KNOW HOW ONE THING LEADS TO ANOTHER.
JULIO DIAZ YOU GOT IN CUSTODY.
THE THIRD GUY IS LEO RAMIREZ, WHICH IS THE CROWN JEWEL OF THE KINGS.
I'M GIVIN' UP THE CROWN JEWEL.
RAMIREZ IS AT HIS REGULAR PLACES? HOLED UP SOMEWHERES.
HIDING.
I DON'T KNOW.
HEY, NO ONE DOES DICK WITH THE D.
A.
, MILO, IF WE DON'T GET RAMIREZ.
SOMETIMES HE'LL HIDE WITH RUDY MORENO.
RUDY GOT A GOOD JOB.
HIM AND LEO ARE BOYS SINCE THEY WERE KIDS.
WHERE? THEY LIVE ON 10th STREET.
IMAGINE THE CROWN JEWEL IN OUR VERY PRECINCT.
WHAT DO WE GOT? THIS GUY'S ONE OF THE LICENSEES-- MEL EIGEN.
CASH REGISTER'S CLEARED OUT.
HE'S SHOT IN THE HEAD.
TOOK A GOOD BEATING TO THE FACE.
WHO FOUND HIM? CUSTOMER CAME TO PICK HIS CAR UP.
CALLS HIM IN DEAD AND SPLITS.
I GOT THE CUSTOMER'S PEDIGREE.
- ALL RIGHT, I'M GONNA START THE CANVASS.
-[ Martinez ] ALL RIGHT.
[ Chattering ] - OH, MY GOSH! WHAT'S GOIN' ON? - [ Mutters ] - WHO ARE YOU? - DANNY DeMARCO.
I WORK HERE.
OH, MY GOSH! WHAT HAPPENED TO MEL? MEL'S DEAD, DANNY.
I AM GONE 40 MINUTES, AND POOR MEL GETS KILLED.
THAT IS HORRIBLE.
HOW'D YOU HURT YOUR HAND? OH.
OW! I DID THAT BEFORE I WENT TO THE A.
T.
M.
I JUST WENT TO THE A.
T.
M.
AND THE JEWELER.
MY WRENCH SLIPPED WHILE I WAS WORKING ON THE TRANSMISSION.
THIS IS JUST TERRIBLE.
[ Martinez ] YOU HAD ROBBERIES BEFORE? NO.
PEOPLE LOVED MEL.
WHY WOULD SOMEONE DO THIS? ALL RIGHT, THERE'S A BLOOD TRAIL OUTSIDE.
OH, THAT'D PROBABLY BE MINE.
FROM THIS.
IT PROBABLY GOES RIGHT TO THE A.
T.
M.
I WENT TO GET MONEY BECAUSE I HAD TO TAKE A PRESENT FOR MY MOM OUT OF LAYAWAY.
HMM.
YOU SURE GOT THE DETAILS OF YOUR MORNING DOWN, DANNY.
[ Phone Ringing ] SHOULD I GET THAT? NO.
WAIT.
HELLO? THIS IS DETECTIVE MEDAVOY.
WHO'S CALLING? IS IT PAUL DeMARCO? SHH.
YEAH, MR.
DeMARCO, UH, THERE'S BEEN AN INCIDENT.
I WONDER IF WE COULD COME AND TALK TO YOU.
MY DAD IS GONNA BE VERY UPSET.
HE AND MEL WERE PARTNERS AND LONGTIME FRIENDS.
I-I-I'D RATHER TELL YOU IN PERSON.
WOULD THAT BE ALL RIGHT? OH, THAT'S NOT FAR.
WE CAN BE THERE IN ABOUT 15 MINUTES.
ALL RIGHT.
THANKS VERY MUCH.
UM, THIS OFFICER HERE IS GONNA TAKE YOU IN TO OUR STATION HOUSE, DANNY, AND, UH, WE'LL BRING YOUR FATHER IN, AND HOPEFULLY WE CAN GET ALL THE INFORMATION WE NEED.
I TOLD YOU ALL I KNOW.
WE STILL GOT MORE QUESTIONS.
[ Laughs ] I GOT PEOPLE PICKIN' CARS UP.
WELL, YOU'RE GOIN' DOWN TO THE STATION HOUSE, DANNY.
NOW.
I WASN'T DOIN' NOTHIN'.
I WAS JUST GETTIN' EARRINGS.
[ Continues, Indistinct ] GOD, ONLY THING BETTER-- IF THIS KID HAD A SIGN ON HIM, RIGHT, GREG? "ARREST ME.
" MAYBE IT FELL OFF ON HIS WAY BACK FROM THE A.
T.
M.
[ Chuckles ] WOULDN'T BOTHER ME IF THIS WAS A FALSE ALARM.
YEAH.
THINGS SEEM PRETTY MUCH ON TRACK AGAIN WITH YOU AND BOBBY.
[ Pager Beeping ] YEAH, PRETTY MUCH.
WE'RE ACTUALLY GONNA TRY TO GO TO A MOVIE TONIGHT.
OH.
MOVES THE ODDS UP THIS WILL TAKE OVERTIME.
I'M DR.
ROSEN.
I REPORTED THE POSSIBLE SHAKEN BABY.
I'M DETECTIVE KIRKENDALL.
THIS IS DETECTIVE RUSSELL.
MY PATIENT'S A ONE-YEAR-OLD GIRL WITH A WHIPLASH-TYPE INJURY TO HER BRAIN.
LARGE HEMATOMA IN THE BACK OF HER HEAD AND SMALLER ONE IN FRONT.
SHE ALSO HAS FINGER MARKS ON HER SHOULDER BLADES AND THUMB MARKS ON HER CHEST.
THE SITTER SAYS SHE INJURED HERSELF FALLING OFF A COUCH.
- A FALL WOULDN'T EXPLAIN THE FINGER MARKS.
- AND NO BRUISING ON HER SKULL.
I'D WANT AN M.
R.
I.
, BUT SHAKING'S DEFINITELY THE LIKELIEST CAUSE.
- IS SHE GONNA DIE? - I THINK SHE PROBABLY WILL.
[ Sighs ] WHAT'S THE SITTER'S NAME? AMY CHU.
SHE'S RIGHT OVER THERE.
THANKS.
[ Woman On P.
A.
] HOUSEKEEPING, PLEASE REPORT TO THIRD FLOOR REHAB.
IS TINA OKAY? AMY, WE'RE FROM THE POLICE DEPARTMENT.
WE'RE LOOKING INTO WHAT HAPPENED TO TINA.
UM, SHE FELL OFF THE COUCH.
I'M JUST AWAY FROM HER ONE MINUTE.
- AND SHE FELL? - YES.
WHY HAD YOU LEFT HER ON THE COUCH? I MADE A MISTAKE.
- IS SHE GOING TO BE ALL RIGHT? -THE DOCTORS ARE DOING EVERYTHING THEY CAN FOR HER.
WHAT YOU NEED TO CONCENTRATE ON IS HELPING US UNDERSTAND HOW THIS ACCIDENT HAPPENED.
I MADE A MISTAKE FOR ONE MINUTE.
WHAT HAPPENED? WHERE'S TINA? MS.
ZHENG, I'M SO SORRY.
UM, TINA HIT HER HEAD.
THE DOCTOR IS TAKING CARE OF HER.
WHY WEREN'T YOU WITH HER? I MADE A MISTAKE.
GET US THE DOCTOR OF TINA ZHENG.
OVER THERE.
AMY, YOU NEED TO COME TO THE STATION HOUSE WITH US.
I HAVE TO GO? YEAH, YOU DO.
MS.
ZHENG, WHEN IT'S CONVENIENT FOR YOU, PLEASE GET IN TOUCH WITH US.
- [ Speaking Chinese ] - [ Speaking Chinese ] AWFUL GIRL! YOU HURT OUR BABY! [ Kirkendall ] LET'S GO, AMY.
RUDY MORENO? YEAH.
DETECTIVES SIPOWICZ AND SIMONE.
CAN WE COME IN? SURE.
WHAT ARE YOU HERE FOR? DO YOU KNOW A GUY NAMED LEO RAMIREZ? MY WHOLE LIFE.
-KNOW WHERE HE IS? - IT'S A GUESSING GAME WITH HIM.
JUST OUT OF THE JOINT.
YEAH, WELL, WE NEED TO TALK TO HIM ABOUT A GUY GETTING SHOT.
TONY PEREZ.
[ Sipowicz ] KNOW ANYTHING ABOUT THAT? - NO.
UH-UH.
-YOU GOT AN ADDRESS FOR US, RUDY-- A PLACE WHERE WE CAN GO AND TALK TO THIS LEO? HE JUST CRASHES WITH FRIENDS.
KIND OF LIVES A WANDERING LIFE.
PHONE NUMBER OR PAGER? A PAGER, RUDY.
DOES LEO HAVE A PAGER? - I'M NOT SURE.
- IN THE ARMY, HUH? M.
P.
IN FACT, I'M ON THE LIST APPLYING FOR THE POLICE DEPARTMENT.
THEY'RE DOING MY BACKGROUND CHECK.
IS THAT RIGHT? WELL, I'LL TELL YOU SOMETHING, RUDY.
IF YOU WANT TO GET ON THIS JOB, A SOLID HERE HELPING US FIND LEO-- THAT'S NOT GONNA HURT YOUR CHANCES.
THE FLIP SIDE-- YOU DON'T COOPERATE, YOUR INVESTIGATOR'S LIABLE TO HEAR ABOUT THAT.
WE KNOW EACH OTHER SINCE WE'RE FIVE YEARS OLD.
IF YOU WANNA BE ON THE JOB, RUDY, YOU'RE GONNA BE FACING SITUATIONS LIKE THAT.
YOU AND RAMIREZ, YOU GO WAY BACK, RIGHT? WELL, HE SHOT A MAN DEAD IN THE STREET.
YOU WANT ME TO BEEP HIM? FIND OUT WHERE HE IS WHEN HE CALLS YOU BACK, RUDY.
THEN WE'LL GRAB HIM UP WITHOUT LEO EVER KNOWING IT CAME FROM YOU.
I'M GONNA KNOW.
I'D LIKE TO KEEP TRYING MY PARTNER'S WIFE.
SHE DON'T HAVE TO HEAR IT FROM A STRANGER.
UH, YEAH.
MAXINE, COULD YOU SET MR.
DeMARCO UP WITH A PHONE IN THE COFFEE ROOM? - SURE.
- AND WHATEVER BEVERAGE HE'S LOOKING FOR.
YOUR D.
O.
A.
HAD SOME POLITICAL JUICE.
BIG SUPPORTER OF THE JOB.
THIS GUY WE BROUGHT IN IS THE FATHER OF THE KID WE LIKE FOR THE HOMICIDE.
UH, WHILE WE'RE WORKING UP THE CRIME SCENE, THIS KID WALKS IN WITH A BLOODIED-UP HAND HE SUPPOSEDLY GOT FIXING A TRANNY.
THERE'S A BLOOD TRAIL OUTSIDE THE BACK DOOR OF THIS TRANSMISSION PLACE.
LEADS TO THE A.
T.
M.
WHERE THIS KID MADE A WITHDRAWAL FROM.
YEAH, WE THINK HE TOOK OUT THE MONEY TO ACCOUNT FOR HAVING THE PROCEEDS FROM THE ROBBERY.
YEAH.
HE TOOK THE MONEY OUT TO COVER THE ROBBERY.
THEN HE PUTS HIMSELF AT THE JEWELER TAKING OUT A GIFT ON LAYAWAY.
SO, UM, THE JEWELER BACKS HIM? YEAH.
SAYS HE WAS THERE, BUT HE WAS ACTING AWFULLY NERVOUS.
JEWELER SAYS HE THOUGHT HE WAS GONNA ROBHIM.
ANYWAYS, UH, WE'RE GONNA SEE WHAT WE GET FROM THE FATHER AND THEN GO BACK AT THE KID.
YEAH.
UH, LIEU, UH, AS WE'RE LEAVING THIS TRANSMISSION PLACE, JAMES SPOKE ASIDE TO ME.
THIS KID DID EVERYTHING BUT WEAR AN "ARREST ME" SIGN ON HIS BACK.
NOTHING LIKE BUILDING UP THE BOSS'S EXPECTATIONS.
YOU THINK THAT WAS TOO MUCH FANFARE? - THANKS, MAXINE.
- OKAY.
YOU GOT MY SON IN HERE? YEAH.
WE, UH, NEED SOME FURTHER INFORMATION FROM DANNY.
MR.
DeMARCO, UH, DO YOU KNOW IF MR.
EIGEN HAD ANYONE ANGRY AT HIM? THIS WAS A STRAIGHT-ARROW GUY.
HE DIDN'T GAMBLE.
HE DIDN'T DO DRUGS.
HE DIDN'T RUN AROUND.
DID YOUR SON GET ALONG WITH MEL? MY SON DOESN'T GET ON WITH ANYONE.
GOT A DRUG PROBLEM.
- CAN'T KEEP A JOB.
- HE WAS WORKING FOR YOU AND MEL.
MEL WAS NICE ENOUGH.
HE SUGGESTED HIRING DANNY.
YOU KNOW, LET HIM MOVE OUT OF MY AND MY WIFE'S APARTMENT.
KID DOESN'T HAVE ONE FRIEND.
NOT ONE PERSON TO CALL, HAVE A SOCIAL TIME WITH.
MR.
DeMARCO, DO YOU KNOW DANNY TO BE VIOLENT? I DON'T KNOW.
DOES HE OWN A GUN, YOU KNOW? WHERE WAS HE ANYHOW? HE SHOULD'VE BEEN DOING REPAIRS THERE.
DANNY SAYS THAT HE STEPPED OUT TO, UH, PICK UP A PRESENT FOR YOUR WIFE.
- I WANT TO TALK TO HIM.
- NOT RIGHT NOW, MR.
DeMARCO.
- ARE YOU DONE WITH ME? - YEAH.
YOU CAN GO FOR NOW.
YOU TELL HIM IF HE DID THIS, I HOPE HE BURNS IN HELL.
[ Door Opens, Closes ] READY TO GO AT HIM? [ Door Closes ] DID YOU TALK TO MY DAD? YEAH.
WE JUST FINISHED, DANNY.
IS HE HORRIFIED? HE'S PRETTY BROKEN UP.
BECAUSE HE AND MEL WERE BEST FRIENDS 30 YEARS.
HE TELLS US YOU DIDN'T NORMALLY GO OUT FOR ERRANDS IN THE MIDDLE OF A WORKING DAY.
W-WELL, TODAY I WENT TO GO PICK UP EARRINGS I'D BOUGHT FOR MY MOTHER.
I GOT 'EM WITH ME.
WE STOPPED BY THAT JEWELER GOIN' TO PICK UP YOUR DAD.
HE SAID YOU HAD THOSE EARRINGS ON LAYAWAY SINCE FOUR MONTHS BACK.
WELL, I'D SAVED ENOUGH BY NOW.
IT'S NOT LIKE MEL AND MY DAD PAID ME A KING'S SALARY.
ARE YOU DIRECTING SUSPICION AT ME? DANNY, YOUR WRENCH INJURY'S CONSISTENT WITH WHAT MIGHT HAPPEN IN SOME TYPE OF ALTERCATION.
I EXPLAINED EVERY SINGLE ASPECT-- MY BLOOD, MY WHEREABOUTS.
I RESENT THE IMPLICATION BECAUSE THERE'S A KILLER ON THE LOOSE.
[ Martinez ] DO YOU OWN A GUN, DANNY? NO.
I WENT TO WORK.
I DID MY REPAIRS.
I TOOK A BREAK, WHICH I AM ENTITLED TO, AND THEN MEL WAS DEAD.
THAT IS MY STORY.
ARE YOU ON DRUGS PRESENTLY, DANNY? [ Sighs ] I HAVE TOLD YOU MY STORY.
THAT WAS EASY, HUH, GREG? YEAH.
I FEEL VERY SCARED.
WE UNDERSTAND THAT, AMY.
WE KNOW YOU'RE UPSET ABOUT TINA.
CAN YOU TELL US EXACTLY WHAT HAPPENED LEADING UP TO TINA'S HAVING TO GO TO THE HOSPITAL? UM, TINA WAS ON THE COUCH.
UH, JUST FOR A MINUTE I WENT INTO THE KITCHEN TO GET A JUICE BAR.
WHEN I GOT BACK, SHE HAD FALLEN.
DID SHE CRY WHEN SHE FELL? NO.
I WOULD HEAR AND COME RIGHT AWAY.
SO SHE WAS UNCONSCIOUS? YES.
AMY, THE DOCTOR SAID TINA'S HEAD INJURIES WERE DIFFERENT FROM THE KIND SHE'D HAVE GOTTEN FALLING THE WAY YOU DESCRIBED.
[ Sniffles ] I CAN'T UNDERSTAND THAT.
MM-MMM.
JUST GENERALLY SPEAKING, AMY, DID THE BABY CRY A LOT? GET YOU FRUSTRATED? NO.
OH, NO.
YOU KNOW, SOMETIMES PEOPLE GET ANGRY AT A CRYING BABY AND SHAKE 'EM TO GET 'EM TO STOP.
NO.
I DID EVERYTHING NORMAL.
YOU CAN CHECK THE JOURNAL.
WHAT JOURNAL? I MARK EVERYTHING DOWN.
[ Sniffles ] "7:15, GIVE TINA BATH.
I CHANGE DIAPER.
" [ Russell ] YOU DO A PAGE LIKE THIS EVERY DAY? YEAH, EVERYTHING SHE DO.
YEAH.
FEEDING, PEEING, POOPING, ALL OF IT.
AND THIS WAS THE ZHENGS' IDEA? MY IDEA.
I LOVE THE BABY.
AMY, WE'RE GONNA HAVE YOU SIT HERE A LITTLE WHILE, AND I'D REALLY LIKE YOU TO USE THE TIME TO THINK THROUGH OTHER WAYS TINA MIGHT'VE GOTTEN HER HEAD INJURIES.
OKAY.
YOU WANT A SODA OR SOMETHING? NO, THANK YOU.
[ Door Closes ] [ Rudy ] LOT OF TIME ON THAT CORNER.
[ Simone ] YOU NEED TO SLIDE DOWN IN THE SEAT, RUDY, SO YOU COULD JUST SEE OVER THE WINDOW.
[ Rudy ] THAT'S HIM.
THAT'S LEO.
GUY WITH THE BLACK JACKET, TAKING A CIGARETTE? [ Rudy ] THE ONE GOIN' BACK IN.
ALL RIGHT.
[ Sipowicz ] ALL RIGHT, THROW THAT BLANKET OVER YOU WHILE WE GO GET HIM.
WE'LL PUT LEO IN THE RADIO CAR, AND THEN WE'LL PICK THIS CAR BACK UP.
I WOULDN'T MIND TALKING TO HIM, EXPLAINING THINGS.
RUDY, COVER UP WITH THE BLANKET TILL WE GET BACK IN, HUH? [ Man ] TAXI! TAXI! [ Chattering In Spanish ] [ Horn Honks ] - [ Chattering In Spanish ] - JUST BE COOL.
EVERYBODY UP AGAINST THE WALL.
HANDS OVER YOUR HEAD.
GET UP THERE! HANGIN' WITH YOUR BOYS SOME KIND OF CRIME, MAN? - WHAT DO YOU GOT IN THE BAG THERE, LEO? - HOW DO YOU KNOW MY NAME? 'CAUSE YOUR UGLY PUSS IS ON A SURVEILLANCE CAMERA IN THAT K.
F.
C.
- THESE GUYS ARE CLEAN.
- I DON'T KNOW WHAT K.
F.
C.
YOU'RE TALKIN' ABOUT, MY MAN.
THE ONE I'M FAMILIAR WITH AIN'T GOT NO SURVEILLANCE CAMERA.
IT'S JUST NOT UP THERE WHERE EVERYBODY CAN SEE IT.
I KNOW WHO TOLD YOU WHERE I WAS AT.
YEAH, I'LL BE HAVING A CONVERSATION WITH HIM SOON.
- SHUT UP! - LET'S GET A RADIO CAR AND TAKE THIS SLIME BAG IN.
- THAT COAT WAS STOLEN.
GIVE IT UP.
- NO, MAN.
THAT'S HERS.
NO, I THINK THAT MUST'VE BEEN A DREAM YOU HAD.
YOU GUYS SEE A LATINO AND GOTTA HASSLE HIM, RIGHT? OH, YEAH, THAT'S OUR STICK, LEO.
OUR SPECIALTY'S THE ONES THAT MURDER PEOPLE ON THE STREET AND STEAL FROM PREGNANT WOMEN.
- WHERE YOU GETTIN' THAT? - YOU KILLED TONY PEREZ, LEO.
WASN'T ME.
PEREZ'S GIRLFRIEND IS PICKING YOU OUT, LEO.
PLUS THAT COAT YOUR OLD LADY WAS SPORTIN' IN THE BODEGA.
- YEAH, THAT USED TO BE HERS.
- COME ON.
THERE'S A LOT OF SHEEPSKINS OUT THERE.
AND THAT GIRL-- I WOULDN'T BE SO RELIABLE SHE'S GONNA GO AGAINST A KING.
- NO, HUH? - TONY WASN'T THE FIRST KING SHE DATED.
SO WHY'D YOU KILL HIM, LEO? 'CAUSE HE WANTED TO STRAIGHTEN OUT INSTEAD OF SCREWING OFF? YOU GOTTA ASK THE CROWN JEWEL'S PERMISSION.
ANYTHING POSSIBLE WITH THAT.
CROWN JEWEL BEING YOU? MAYBE I SAY YEAH.
MAYBE I SAY NO.
SO BECAUSE THIS GUY DIDN'T WANT TO KISS YOUR RING THERE, YOU FIGURE HE DESERVES DYING? I'M NOT FIGURIN' NOTHING, BECAUSE I WASN'T INVOLVED.
MY GENERAL STATEMENT IS THIS: A MEMBER'S GOTTA SHOW RESPECT.
[ Scoffs ] AY, CARAMBA.
LOVE YOUR ACCENT.
YOU LOVE MY ACCENT, HUH? YOU WANT A FISTFUL OF MY ACCENT? YOU'RE REALLY BAD, AREN'T YOU, LEO? THAT GIRL'S NEVER GIVING YOU UP.
THAT'S JUST ABOUT MY POSITION, YEAH.
GET UP, ASSHOLE.
THERE'S YOUR NEW POSITION.
MR.

ZHENG, HOW'S TINA? ON A RESPIRATOR.
THEY DON'T KNOW IF SHE WILL LIVE.

WE'RE TALKING TO AMY.
WHY DON'T WE SIT OVER HERE? WOULD YOU LIKE SOMETHING TO DRINK? JUST ASK US WHAT YOU WANT.
HAS TINA EVER FALLEN BEFORE? - NO.
- DID YOU OR YOUR WIFE EVER HAVE OCCASION TO SET HER DOWN HARD? NO, NO.
THIS IS AMY CHU'S DOING.
WE'RE CERTAINLY LOOKING AT THE POSSIBILITY AMY'S RESPONSIBLE.

I NOTICE THAT THERE WERE NO ENTRIES FOR WHEN THE BABY WOULD SLEEP.
- NO.

[ Russell ] THANK YOU.
I'M GOING TO THE HOSPITAL TO GET A STATEMENT FROM THE ADMITTING INTERN.
SO HOW YOU HOLDING UP, WANDA? - IT'S HARD, YOU KNOW.
- DID WE HEAR THAT STORY RIGHT-- THE HEAD OF THAT DIAPER COMPANY'S GONNA BE PUTTING UP MONEY FOR THE BABY? YEAH, HE HEARD ON THE RADIO WHAT HAPPENED TO TONY.
HE'S GONNA HELP WITH THE BABY'S EXPENSES.
- SO THAT'S A GOOD BREAK.
- YEAH, IT'S GONNA HELP.
WE, UH, NEED YOU TO PICK TONY'S SHOOTER OUT, WANDA.
- [ Laughs ] YOU THINK SO? - NOBODY'S TALKING ABOUT TESTIMONY.
NO, YOU PICK HIM OUT IN THE LINEUP.
HE'S GONNA BE LOOKIN' TO DEAL.
- YOU THINK SO? - YEAH, THAT'S WHAT WE THINK, WANDA.
YOU THINK DIFFERENT? YOU THINK HE'LL PLEAD OUT? YOU DON'T KNOW THE CROWN JEWEL.
WHICH DOES HINT TO WANDA'S AWARENESS ON TONY'S ASSAILANT.
MM-HMM.
THIS, UH, HEAD OF THE DIAPER COMPANY-- MR.
ALTMAYER.
MR.
ALTMAYER, RIGHT.
PUBLICITY FANATIC.
YOU KNOW, POSTCOMES OUT, HE AIN'T IN IT, GUY GOES TO BED WITH A MIGRAINE.
MR.
ALTMAYER FINDS OUT THAT YOU DID THE RIGHT THING HERE, WANDA, YOU'RE GONNA BE LOOKING AT A LOT MORE THAN DIAPER MONEY.
YOU THINK SO? OH, YEAH.
; "WIDOWED MOTHER-TO-BE STANDS UP TO FIANCEÉÉ'S KILLERS BLOWHARD FINANCIER FREES HER FROM GANG'S CLUTCHES.
" I'LL TELL YOU SOMETHING ELSE, WANDA.
A GUY LIKE THIS STEPS IN, HE MAKES A LONG-TERM COMMITMENT.
THEY DON'T WANT NO EMBARRASSMENT AFTERWARDS, ANYTHING BAD HAPPENS TO YOU.
WE'RE TALKING ABOUT A LIFESTYLE MAKEOVER HERE.
YOU THINK SO? ABSOLUTELY.
I'LL TELL YOU WHO DID IT AND PICK HIM OUT.
[ Captain ] MAN, THIS DANNY DeMARCO INTERVIEW-- I'M NOT GONNA PRETEND ONE P.
P.
's NOT PUTTIN' MY FEET TO THE FIRE SOMEWHAT.
WE RECOGNIZE THE POSITION YOU'RE IN, CAPTAIN.
I'M NOT GONNA PUT LT.
FANCY IN THE MIDDLE, WHICH IS WHY I WANNA SPEAK TO BOTH OF YOUSE DIRECTLY.
I'M NOT GONNA PUT YOU IN THE MIDDLE KIBITZING HOW YOU RUN YOUR INTERVIEW OR CONDUCT YOUR CASE.
SO WHAT WOULD BE YOUR POINT, CAPTAIN? - THE POINT IS, DON'T BE SHY.
-MEANING? MEANING I'M NOT GONNA ADVOCATE ONE INTERROGATION TECHNIQUE FROM ANOTHER, BUT WE WANT A STATEMENT FROM THIS ASSHOLE BEFORE ANYONE GETS TOO MUCH OLDER.
AND IF THE ROOM'S GOT THE WRONG POPULATION, I THINK WE'RE ALL ADULTS, AND WE'RE PREPARED TO SACRIFICE FOR THE GOOD OF THE WHOLE.
SO WHY DOES THAT SOUND LIKE "DON'T WALK HIM, BUT DON'T GIVE HIM ANYTHING TO HIT"? ARTHUR, IF THAT'S WHAT YOU HEARD, YOU'RE NOT LISTENING RIGHT.
I GOT NOTHIN' AGAINST TIMELY HITS.
[ Door Opens, Closes ] DEAL WITH HIM THE WAY YOU THINK IS RIGHT.
I WANT TO BE MORE HELPFUL.
I REALLY DO.
YEAH? THEN YOU SHOULD BE MORE CANDID, DANNY.
I WISH I COULD SAY MORE, BECAUSE THERE ARE LAYERS AND SIDES TO EVERY STORY.
SO, UH, WHAT'S PREVENTING YOU FROM EXPLORING THOSE? YOU EVER FIND YOURSELF THE ODD MAN OUT? SURE.
OUT IN THE COLD? THIRD WHEEL? WHICH IS AN UNPLEASANT THING.
- ABSOLUTELY.
- THAT WAS MY SITUATION AT MY WORKPLACE.
MEL AND MY DAD ARE BIG PALS.
GO TO LUNCH EVERY SINGLE DAY WHILE I BROWN-BAG IT.
HURT YOUR FEELINGS? [ Laughs ] I PUT UP WITH IT, YOU KNOW-- THEM BEIN' ALL BUDDY-BUDDY WITH THEIR JOKES.
BUT, UH, THEN THEY'D LAUGH AT ME AND BOSS ME AND SAY I DON'T DO A GOOD JOB.
DID, UH, MEL LAUGH AT YOU YESTERDAY? I MEAN, IT JUST ISN'T COMMON COURTESY-- CALL SOMEONE STUPID AND A MORON AND AT THE SAME TIME SHOWIN' EVERLASTING LOVE FOR MEL.
- THIS IS YOUR DAD NOW? - BOTH.
BOTH OF THEM BEST FRIENDS MAKIN' ME FEEL LIKE DIRT.
DANNY, DID ALL THIS RESENTMENT, PLUS, UH, INADEQUATE WAGES, HOW YOU FELT THE CASE-- - DID YOU FINALLY DO SOMETHING ABOUT THAT? - NO.
- [ Clattering ] - JERKIN' US AROUND A LITTLE, DANNY? - LEAD UP TO BEIN' COOPERATIVE, THEN YANK THE RUG OUT? - NO.
THERE'S OTHER WAYS WE CAN GO WHERE YOU'LL WISH YOU TOOK THE CHANCE MY PARTNER'S GIVING YOU.
- WHAT'S THAT SUPPOSED TO MEAN? - YOU'RE ON THE METHADONE MAINTENANCE, RIGHT? MY PROGRAM GIVES ME UP, THAT'S BREACH OF CONFIDENCE.
I FIGURE YOU GOT GOOD AND LOADED BEFORE YOU DID WHAT YOU DID THIS MORNING, NOT WORRIED AT ALL, JONESING IN HERE.
I AM NOT WORRIED BECAUSE I'M INNOCENT.
YOU'RE NOT WORRIED BECAUSE YOU THINK YOUR ALIBI'S SOLID, AND YOU'RE STILL FEELING GOOD FROM YOUR DOSE, RIGHT? WHAT YOU'RE LEAVIN' OUT, DANNY, IS THE CHANCE YOU MIGHT GET YOUR ASS KICKED TILL YOU WISH YOU WERE DEAD.
I DIDN'T DO IT, AND YOU'RE NOT GONNA MAKE ME SAY THAT I DID.
I THINK I GOTTA TUNE HIM UP.
THING IS, JAMES, HE'S NOT GOING FOR A LAWYER.
- INDICATING WHAT? - INDICATING SOME ASPECT HE WANTS TO BE FORTHCOMING.
HOW ABOUT IT'S INDICATING HE THINKS HE'S GOT ALL THE ANSWERS FOR CIRCUMSTANTIAL EVIDENCE, AND HE'S GETTING OFF ON BREAKING OUR BALLS? - I DIFFER ON TUNING HIM UP.
- 'CAUSE OF YOUR "GENIE'S OUT OF THE BOTTLE" EXPERIENCE? - I DON'T THINK IT'S RIGHT FOR THIS KID.
- CLOCK'S RUNNING ON THIS, GREG.
WE DON'T MOVE HIM SOON, I'M GOING UPSIDE HIS HEAD.
IT'S 4:00, LIEUTENANT.
DO YOU KNOW WHERE YOUR EIGEN INVESTIGATION IS? GIVE IT A REST, COHEN.
GOT YOUR CRACK DETECTIVES MARTINEZ AND MEDAVOY ON THIS.
MEANING WHAT? DEAD GUY HAD A LOT OF JUICE.
I DON'T THINK YOU WANNA COME OUT OF THE JUNGLE EMPTY-HANDED.
LIEU, DIANE'S ON HER WAY BACK.
THE BABY DIED.
THE BABYSITTER MAKE A STATEMENT? WE'LL GO BACK AT HER NOW.
SHE'S A BABY KILLER.
WHY THE LACK OF ENTHUSIASM? OH, KISS MY ASS, COHEN.
NOT AN ENTIRELY UNAPPEALING THOUGHT.
SHE ADORED THIS KID, LIEU.
FORTY ENTRIES A DAY IN A JOURNAL.
EVERY HICCUP THE KID MADE.
BUT DO YOU THINK SHE DID IT? I DON'T THINK THE PARENTS WOULD'VE TAKEN THE TIME.
OKAY.
[ Door Opens ] [ Martinez ] THANKS, JOSH.
IT'S ABOUT TIME I GO.
YEAH, DANNY? YOU GET ENOUGH JOLLIES TELLIN' US LIES? WE'D LIKE TO TALK TO YOU A LITTLE MORE, DANNY, ON THIS MORNING'S CIRCUMSTANCES.
MEANING YOUR BOSS'S DEATH.
ONE OF MY BOSS'S DEATH.
RIGHT, YEAH.
YOUR DAD'S YOUR OTHER BOSS.
NOT THAT HE WOULDN'T RATHER THAT I WAS OUT OF HIS LIFE ALTOGETHER.
YOU KNOW, I TRIED SUICIDE THREE TIMES.
AND BELIEVE ME, MY DAD NEVER CRIED AT MY BEDSIDE LIKE I KNOW HE'S CRYIN' OVER MEL.
YOU KNOW, YOU'RE A SNIVELING LITTLE ASSHOLE.
WHY SHOULDN'T YOUR DAD GRIEVE OVER HIS FRIEND? WHY SHOULD THAT MAKE YOU JEALOUS? HE'S NOT BEGRUDGING THIS GRIEVING, JAMES.
BUT-BUT HIS DAD NOT SHOWING EQUIVALENT SYMPATHY WHEN DANNY WAS DOWN HIMSELF-- OR MAYBE HE WAS LAUGHING, MAKIN' FUN, LIKE "YOU CAN'T EVEN KILL YOURSELF RIGHT, YOU WORTHLESS JERK.
" OH, DANNY, TAKE IT EASY.
YOU THINK THAT I AM JERKING YOU AROUND? YOU THINK THAT I AM NOT GENUINELY UPSET? MY LIFE IS A FAILURE.
YOU THINK I'M GLAD I'M ON METHADONE MAINTENANCE OR THAT NO ONE IN THIS WORLD CARES TWO CENTS ABOUT ME? WELL, PUT ME ON THAT LIST, YOU CREEPY LITTLE JERK.
- IT'S A LONG LIST.
- WELL, PUT ME ON THE TOP.
GOD.
I AM SO UNHAPPY.
COME HERE, DANNY.
COME HERE AND LET IT OUT.
[ Sobbing ] YOU THINK I WANTED THINGS TO HAPPEN? ALL RIGHT.
ALL RIGHT.
SHH.
TELL ME WHAT HAPPENED.
I GOT-- I GOT CARRIED AWAY.
I TOOK A DOUBLE DOSE, AND THE ANGER AT BOTH OF THEM-- I WOULD'VE KILLED BOTH OF THEM IF MY DAD HAD BEEN THERE.
SHH.
I AM SUCH A WEASEL.
AND THEN WHAT? THEN I HAD TO COVER UP.
OF COURSE YOU DID.
THERE, THERE.
[ Sobbing Continues ] [ Door Opens ] [ Door Closes ] THERE'S NO EASY WAY TO TELL YOU THIS, AMY.
TINA DIED AN HOUR AGO.
OH, NO.
[ Sobbing ] OH, NO.
POOR BABY.
NO.
THE DOCTOR SAID WHATEVER HAPPENED ABSOLUTELY DIDN'T HAVE TO BE INTENTIONAL, BUT TINA DIED FROM SOMEONE SHAKING HER TOO HARD.
AMY, ANYONE COULD TELL FROM LOOKING AT THAT JOURNAL YOU KEPT HOW MUCH YOU LOVED AND CARED FOR TINA.
I-- I LOVED HER.
[ Sniffles ] I TOOK CARE OF HER THE BEST I COULD.
- BUT NOW SHE'S DEAD.
- NO.
NO.
DON'T.
I FED HER AND CLEANED HER.
I'M ALSO WALKING OR HOLDING HER.
[ Sobbing Continues ] UM, I SAW IN THE MIRROR HER EYES WERE CLOSING, YOU KNOW.
NO, NO, NO.
MY MOTHER, SHE'S VERY SICK IN LAST YEAR, AND THEY LOANED ME MONEY FOR THE MEDICINE.
I CAN'T-- I CAN'T LOSE THIS JOB.
THE LAST TIME, THE ZHENGS, THEY SAID THEY'D FIRE ME IF SHE FALLS ASLEEP.
BUT THE BABY IS SO TIRED.
SHE TRIED SO HARD TO STAY AWAKE FOR ME, BUT SHE CAN'T KEEP FROM SLEEPING.
YOU KNOW I LOVED TINA.
OKAY, AMY.
[ Sobbing Continues ] CAPTAIN BASS SAYS CONGRATULATIONS.
YEAH.
GOOD.
YEAH.
A LITTLE T.
L.
C.
FROM GREG TURNED THE TRICK, HUH, LIEU? - YOU DID GOOD WORK, GREG.
- YEAH, BUT I GOTTA FESS UP.
YOU KNOW, IF HE DIDN'T GO, HAVIN' HIM IN A HUG, I WAS GONNA GIVE HIM A HELL OF A NOOGIE.
[ Chattering ] HMM.
WE'RE REALLY GOING TO THE MOVIES? - YOU DON'T WANT TO GO? - NO, I WANT TO GO.
IT'S JUST AN INVITATION TO SOME KIND OF NATURAL DISASTER OR SOMETHING.
- IT'SJERRY MAGUIRE,DIANE.
- I'M SAYING SOMETHING'LL COME UP.
YEAH, SOMETHING'S DEFINITELY GONNA COME UP.
THAT'S MY HOPE FOR AFTER THE FILM.
THAT'S A DISGUSTING REMARK.
YOU'RE FORTUNATE YOU'RE AMONG FRIENDS.
HMM.
[ Man ] DETECTIVE SIMONE'S IN THERE.
CAN YOU GIVE ME A SECOND? EXCUSE ME.
COME ON OVER HERE.
HOW'S IT GOING? LEO'S GOIN' BACK IN, HUH? - YEAH.
- I GOT A LOT OF GUILT ABOUT IT.
WELL, YOU GOTTA BELIEVE IN THE FUTURE, RUDY.
TURNING AWAY IS GONNA MAKE YOU A BETTER PERSON.
PLUS YOU'LL BE ABLE TO DO GOOD FOR SOME OTHER PEOPLE.
I WANT THAT.
SO IS THAT JUST SOME B.

THANK YOU VERY MUCH.
OH, YES, OF COURSE.
- BOO, GREG.
- YOU THINK I'VE HAD ENOUGH? THAT WAS, UM, "BOO" LIKE A WITCH.
OH, I THOUGHT YOU WERE HECKLING MY SECOND GLASS.
- SHE WAS TRYING TO GET YOU TO RELAX A LITTLE BIT.
- AH.
AH.
POINT TAKEN.
YEAH, "BOO, I'M NOTHIN' TO BE AFRAID OF.
" [ Laughs ] YEAH.
SO Y-YOU DON'T MIND IF I, UH-- IF I HAVE THE SECOND GLASS? NOT AT ALL.
[ Sighs ] DID YOU ALWAYS WANT TO BE A COP, GREG? I, UH-- I FLIRTED WITH BEING A SCHOOLTEACHER, KATHY, BUT, UH, I CAME ON THE JOB MARKET IN A BUDGETARY ERA.
TEACHERS JUST WEREN'T GETTING HIRED.
I HAD, UH, RELATIVES ON THE JOB-- WHAT WE CALL A-A-A HOOK-- AND SO THAT'S HOW THINGS CAME OUT.
KATHY'S A WRITER.
OH, IS THAT SO? KATHY WRITES COPY FOR AN AD AGENCY.
AND SHE WRITES POETRY, AND SHE'S WORKING ON A WONDERFUL NOVEL RIGHT NOW.
[ Sighs ] KATHY, I AM JUST SO FULL OF ADMIRATION FOR THAT.
I-- I-- I VERY MUCH ENJOY READING.
I-I-- I SOMETIMES THOUGHT MY DECLINING YEARS I COULD WRITE STORIES ABOUT THE JOB.
- THE NEXT JOSEPH WAMBAUGH.
- THE NEXT JOSEPH WAMBAUGH.
WHY NOT? [ Laughs ] I BET YOU'VE GOT GREAT STORIES TO TELL.
GREG IS A TERRIFIC DETECTIVE.
WELL, YOU ARE JUST THE TWO NICEST PEOPLE.
I CAN'T TELL YOU WHAT FUN AND RELIEF I'VE HAD.
WAIT TILL WE START SINGING SEA CHANTEYS AFTER DESSERT.
I KNOW ONE, KATHY.
I-I KNOW "A CAPITAL SHIP.
" ?? A CAPITAL SHIP ON AN OCEAN TRIP ?? ?? WITH THE WHOPPING WINDOW BLINDS ?? ?? THE WIND THAT BLEW-- ?? [ Muttering ] ?? ?? DISMAYED THE CREW AND TROUBLED THE CAPTAIN'S MIND ?? [ All Laughing ] MY GOD! I HAVEN'T SUNG THAT SONG IN 20 YEARS.
CAN I JUST ASK YOU A QUESTION STRAIGHT OUT 'CAUSE I FEEL SUCH RAPPORT? - SURE.
- IS THAT A VAGINA ON THE WALL? IT-IT-IT-- IT WAS INTENDED AS AN ART PIECE.
WHAT HAVE I SAID? HAVE I JUST MADE A COMPLETE FAUX PAS? NO.
NO.
WE SHOULD'VE TAKEN IT DOWN INSTEAD OF TRYING TO COVER IT UP.
HAVE I MORTIFIED MYSELF? - GREG? - YES? YOU'RE A COOL GUY.
- HARDLY.
- TRUST ME.
FINISH YOUR FOOD.
FINISH YOUR WINE.
AND WE'RE GONNA HAVE GREAT DESSERT.
AND THEN WE CAN HANG OUT UNTIL YOU'RE READY TO GO.
I'D LIKE TO SIT UNDER THAT SO IT'S OUT OF MY FIELD OF VISION.
[ Laughs ] SWITCH PLACES.
I'M NOT SURE I'M CAPABLE OF ANY MORE STEPS.
SURE YOU ARE.
SO THERE'S EVEN MORE, HUH? OH, HE'S SO CUTE.
AH, HE'S ALL RIGHT.
YOU JUST WISH YOU COULD PUT YOUR HANDS AROUND HIM.
OH, PUT YOUR HANDS AROUND HIM.
I'M GONNA HAVE TO SEND YOU BACK TO THE ACADEMY FOR SOME SENSITIVITY TRAINING.
I'M NOT TALKING ABOUT TOM CRUISE, BOBBY.
THE LITTLE BOY.
I KNEW THAT.
[ Laughs ] NO, HE WAS CUTE.
WHEN HE GIVES JERRY MAGUIRE THE HUG, IT'S-- YEAH.
I WANT SOME OF THOSE.
OH, YEAH? KIDS, HUH? HMM.
THAT'S-- THAT'S WHEN YOU'RE SUPPOSED TO SAY, "I WANT TO GIVE 'EM TO YOU, DIANE.
