I Love Lucy

Previously on "NYPD BLUE".
- SHOW ME THE ENGAGEMENT RING.
- [ Chuckles ] - YOU THINK I TOTE THAT THING AROUND WITH ME? - WHERE IS IT? - [ Chattering ] - THOSE ARE MALES.
- YEAH, HUH? - I KNOW ANGELA AND PEACHES FROM VICE.
A COP IN A SECTOR CAR SAW THEM WORKING THE CORNER A COUPLE MINUTES - BEFORE THIS HAPPENED.
- WE DIDN'T DO NOTHIN'.
PUT ME IN THE SYSTEM, COME AND GET ME OUT.
WE FOUND A WITNESS THAT BACKED UP YOUR STORY, ARTHUR.
AH, SO YOU TAKE SOMEBODY ELSE'S WORD, BUT I TELL YOU WHAT HAPPENED, AND YOU LOCK ME UP.
CAN I HELP YOU? DIANE RUSSELL, I NEED TO SPEAK TO YOU.
ANGELA, THIS IS NOT DIANE'S CUP OF TEA.
WE WANT THESE MALE COPS INVOLVED.
I'M GONNA TRY NOT TO TAKE THAT TOO PERSONALLY, PEACHES.
DIANE, YOU KNOW OUR FEELINGS TOWARDS YOU.
BUT LOOK AT THAT FACE.
ANGELA'S GONNA BE A DEAD HO UNLESS WE GET A STRONG MALE PRESENCE INVOLVED.
I GUESS STRONG WOULD LEAVE YOU OUT? - SO, WHO HIT YOU, ANGELA? - GOD, YOU ARE SUCH A DOLL.
-WHO HIT YOU? - [ Peaches ] COULD WE DO THIS OVER DOUGHNUTS? COME ON.
MORNING, BOSS.
DIANE.
I HOPE YOU GOT THOSE LEMON-FILLED.
DON'T TOUCH ME.
I'LL SERVE, YOU EXPLAIN, AND DO NOT GO EASY ON THAT PERSON.
ALL RIGHT.
I'VE BEEN THINKING ABOUT HAVING THE OPERATION, AND I DECIDED THAT I WOULD.
AND THEN I DECIDED THAT I DIDN'T WANT TO 'CAUSE I KNEW THIS GIRL.
LAST YEAR SHE WENT AND HAD IT, BUT THEY DIDN'T PROPERLY COMPLETE THE STEPS.
SHE GOT INFECTED AND COMPLICATED, AND SHE ALMOST DIED.
BACK AND FORTH TO THE HOSPITAL, STILL A YEAR LATER, NOTHING WORKS RIGHT ON HER.
SO, ANGELA, THIS GUY WHO HIT YOU, OR MAYBE IS LOOKING TO DO WORSE, HE WANTS YOU TO HAVE THIS OPERATION? THAT IS A DETECTIVE.
[ Clears Throat ] BROKE BAD WHEN YOU CHANGED YOUR MIND? TO DO IT RIGHT, YOU GOTTA GO TO EUROPE, BUT HE DON'T WANT TO KNOW.
[ Peaches ] NOW HE'S SAYING HE'S GONNA CUT HER THROAT.
[ Angela ] I DON'T THINK HE MEANS IT.
I SAW THAT MAN LOOK AT YOU WITH MURDER IN HIS EYES.
I GOT AN IDEA.
HOW 'BOUT YOU PUT A NAME TO THIS GUY, YOU SIGN A COMPLAINT, AND WE'LL GO OUT AND WE'LL ARREST HIM? - COMPLAINT? - YES, A COMPLAINT, ANGELA.
WHAT DO YOU THINK THIS IS, A COUNSELING SERVICE? FILE A COMPLAINT, WE ARREST HIM.
- I NEVER SAID ARREST.
-[ Peaches ] ARREST IS TOO STRONG.
YOU GUYS GOTTA GO OUT THERE AND SHAKE HIM UP.
CAN YOU SMACK HIM? - I DON'T WANT HIM SMACKED.
- GIRL, LOOK WHAT HE DID TO YOU! GIVE UP THE NAME OR TAKE A WALK, ANGELA.
- YOU GOTTA PUT HIM IN JAIL? - YOU GIVE UP A NAME AND HIS USUAL PLACES, AND THEN WE DECIDE WHAT WE DO.
DO YOU REALIZE WHAT THIS MORNING IS GONNA BE LIKE? [ Softly ] I KNOW.
YOU CAN COME WITH US ON THIS.
I THINK IT NEEDS A STRONG MALE PRESENCE.
[ Sighs, Coughs ] - [ Sobs ] - GOT HER HEAD ON THE NOTEBOOK.
HERE, LIFT YOUR HEAD THERE, ANGELA.
- JIMMY CORTEZ.
- PUERTO RICAN MUSCLEMAN.
WON'T ACCEPT A PERSON FOR HERSELF OR HIS OWN NATURE NEITHER.
YOU SHOULD HAVE YOUR OWN TALK SHOW, PEACHES.
YOUR CASE WOULD REQUIRE A LONG CONVERSATION.
DID SOMEBODY DO YOUR HAIR WITH A BLOWTORCH? WHAT HAPPENED TO THE PASTRY ARRAY? AH, SOME COMPLAINANTS DON'T LIKE TO LEAVE WITH EMPTY POCKETS.
[ Sighs ] LIKE A SWARM OF LOCUSTS WENT THROUGH.
IF YOU ALL HAVE A SECOND, I'D LIKE TO SHOW YOU SOMETHING LILLIAN ASKED ME TO SHOW YOU.
WHAT DO YOU GOT, BOSS? UM, A VARIETY OF PRODUCTS, UM, UM, VITAMINS, HAIR CARE-- - LILLIAN ASKED ME TO SHOW YOU.
- YOUR WIFE GOT ONE OF THOSE AMWAY FRANCHISES? WELL, IT-IT'S NOT AMWAY, BUT IT'S A SIMILAR PRINCIPLE.
I COULD, UH, DEFINITELY USE A VITAMIN SUPPLEMENT, AND THAT'S A REASONABLE PRICE.
YEAH.
YEAH.
SHE SAID THE PRODUCTS ARE EXCELLENT AND -THE PRICES ARE VERY REASONABLE.
-NICE HAIRBRUSH.
NOW, THERE IS ABSOLUTELY NO OBLIGATION TO BUY ANYTHING, AND IF ANYTHING IS NOT TO YOUR SATISFACTION, - YOU GET A FULL REFUND.
- I USE THIS SHAMPOO.
ABSOLUTELY NO OBLIGATION.
- CAN I HELP YOU? - OUR NAME IS HASTINGS.
WE NEED TO TALK TO SOMEONE ABOUT A ROBBERY.
GREG.
JAMES? DETECTIVES MEDAVOY AND MARTINEZ WILL HELP YOU.
THOSE ARE SAMPLES, I'M GONNA PUT THOSE AWAY.
- IS THAT JILL KIRKENDALL? -CAN I HELP YOU, FOLKS? WOULD YOU BE MORE COMFORTABLE TALKING WITH DETECTIVE KIRKENDALL? - WOULD THAT BE POSSIBLE? - UM, JILL? -DIANE? THEY KNOW JILL, SO-- - HEY! -SHE AND DIANE CAN WORK THE COMPLAINT.
-[ Medavoy ] SURE.
AH, 12.
95 FOR THE VITAMINS? DON'T DO THAT HERE, GREG.
-IT'S BEEN SO LONG SINCE WE'VE SEEN YOU.
- HOW'S LUCINDA? OH, MARSHALL, YOU REMEMBER JILL.
- YOU'RE A DETECTIVE NOW.
- YEAH.
EXCUSE ME.
DIANE, COULD I WORK THIS INTERVIEW ALONE? I'M GETTIN' THROWN OFF CASES LEFT AND RIGHT.
[ Chuckles ] THIS WAY.
THIS DOES NOT BELONG HERE.
[ Paper Bag Rustling ] COME ON IN, FOLKS.
LUCY ALWAYS LIKED JILL.
FINE.
PLEASE.
YOU DIDN'T ANSWER WHEN I ASKED HOW LUCY WAS DOING.
- SHE'S NOT DOING VERY WELL.
- SHE'S BECOME A THIEF.
NOW, WAIT A MINUTE.
SHE'S A THIEF AND A DRUG ADDICT.
IT WAS AFTER HER DIVORCE THAT THINGS STARTED GOING BAD.
- THAT'S WHEN THE STEALING STARTED.
- SHE WAS AN ADDICT BEFORE THAT, AND THAT'S WHY HER MARRIAGE ENDED.
AS FAR AS THE STEALING GOES, IT WAS MOSTLY LITTLE THINGS.
GOING INTO MY PURSE.
MORE EMBARRASSING THAN ANYTHING.
SO, LUCINDA WAS LIVING WITH YOU AFTER THE DIVORCE? OH, SHE STILL COMES OVER, OF COURSE-- SHE COMES OVER AFTER WE THREW HER OUT, AND LAST NIGHT SHE STOLE FROM US AGAIN-- AND THIS IS THE END OF IT.
- WHAT DID SHE STEAL? - A MONT BLANC PEN WHICH WAS A LAW SCHOOL GRADUATION PRESENT FROM MY FATHER.
IN TERMS OF THE CRIMINAL ASPECTS, THEIR VALUE TO US IS LARGELY SENTIMENTAL.
- LUCY STILL USING DRUGS? - OH, SHE'S BEEN IN PROGRAMS-- SHE'S USING DRUGS, YES.
MY DAUGHTER IS A THIEF AND A DRUG ADDICT.
THAT SUMS IT UP.
AND YOU'RE HERE TO PRESS CHARGES.
THAT'S WHY WE'RE HERE.
IF THE ITEMS COULD BE RETRIEVED, IS THAT SOMETHING THAT WOULD SATISFY YOU? AND MAYBE IF LUCY WENT BACK IN A PROGRAM? NOT ANOTHER DAMNED COUNTRY CLUB! IF YOU'D LIST THE ITEMS, AND, UH, WHERE I CAN FIND LUCY.
[ Pen Scratching Paper ] JIMMY? YEAH, IS-- IS JIMMY THERE? - [ Woman On Intercom ] WRONG APARTMENT.
-[ Door Buzzing ] JIMMY CORTEZ? JIMMY? [ Sighs ] AH-- MORON BROAD DON'T WRITE THE APARTMENT DOWN? I LIKE THAT YOU CALL HER A WOMAN.
I TAKE 'EM AS I FIND 'EM.
TRY NOT TO LOOK BETWEEN THEIR LEGS.
WE GOT TO CHECK OUT 1A AND - HEY.
WHAT'S YOUR NAME? - WHAT'S THAT TO YOU? - SEE THAT RIGHT THERE? TELL ME YOUR NAME.
- JIMMY CORTEZ.
JIMMY CORTEZ.
ALL RIGHT, JIMMY, LET'S GO TALK IN THE HALLWAY, HERE, HUH? WHAT, SO YOU CAN KICK MY ASS, NO WITNESSES? YOU WANT TO TALK TO ME, LET'S TALK RIGHT HERE.
- ALL RIGHT, YOUR CALL.
- YOU DATIN' A PERSON NAMED ANGELA? WHAT, THAT BITCH MADE A COMPLAINT ON ME? HUH? -SHE CAME COMPLAINING ON ME? - TENDS TO HAPPEN WHEN YOU SMACK 'EM IN THE FACE.
LOOK, I DIDN'T KNOW THAT WAS A MAN.
OKAY, YOU SEE HER? TITS OUT TO HERE, CUTE LITTLE ASS.
HOW YOU SUPPOSED TO KNOW? HEY, JIMMY.
NO ONE IS JAMMIN' YOU UP - FOR CONFUSING HER SEX, OKAY? - SMACKING HER IN THE HEAD'S WHAT AROUSED THE CONCERN.
WHAT'S GOING ON? NOW EVERYBODY'S GOT TO KNOW ABOUT THIS.
YOU'RE WORRIED ABOUT THE WRONG THING HERE, JIMMY.
NOBODY WANTS TO DO A LOT OF PAPERWORK ON YOU, BUT YOU LAY HANDS ON THIS ANGELA AGAIN, AND YOU'RE GONNA GET COLLARED AND BROUGHT IN.
- WHAT'D SHE DO FOR YOU? - OH, YEAH, YEAH.
YEAH, THAT'S RIGHT, JIMMY.
YEAH.
- HER AND US, WE'VE BEEN HAVING, LIKE, SECRET TRYSTS.
- JIMMY, YES OR NO.
- ARE YOU GONNA STAY AWAY FROM THIS ANGELA? - [ Scoffs ] I'M NOT A FAG.
YOU GOT THAT? ALL RIGHT.
IF WE AGREE YOU'RE NOT A FAG, ARE YOU GONNA STAY AWAY FROM ANGELA? SHE'S DEEP INSIDE ME, MAN.
WHAT THE HELL ARE WE DOING? COME ON, YOU'RE COMING INSIDE.
NAH, NAH.
I'LL STAY AWAY, MAN.
SQUARE BUSINESS ON THIS.
- DON'T WANT TO BE HURTIN' HER.
- EVEN IF SOMEBODY ELSE HURTS HER, WE'RE COMING AFTER YOU.
- I GOT YA.
I'LL STAY AWAY.
- HMM? DEEP INSIDE HIM.
THAT GUY'S TROUBLE.
COLLAR HIM FOR SLAPPING A WHORE, JUDGE JUST LAUGHS IN YOUR FACE.
- HOW MUCH? - LUCY? -[ Baby Crying ] - OH, MY GOD! JILL KIRKENDALL! WHAT ARE YOU DOING HERE? I-I'M SUCH A JERK, I-I THOUGHT YOU WERE CHINESE FOOD.
CAN I COME IN? YEAH, SURE.
UH, I'M SUCH A SLOB.
[ Laughs ] MY GOD, YOU LOOK-- YOU LOOK FANTASTIC! -THANKS.
HOW'RE YOU DOING, LUCY? -GEEZ, I HAVEN'T SEEN YOU SINCE HIGH SCHOOL.
YOU KNOW, I-I THINK IT WAS.
[ Gasps ] SO, WHAT'S HAPPENED IN THE LAST 20 YEARS? OH, UH, MARRIAGE, UH, TWO KIDS-- DIVORCE-- MEN.
THAT ENTIRE GENDER IS DEFECTIVE.
WELL, I'M RAISING TWO, SO I TRY TO KEEP AN OPEN MIND.
ANYWAY, I BECAME A DETECTIVE.
[ Lighter Clicks ] UH-OH.
[ Chuckles ] WELL, I HOPE THIS IS JUST A SOCIAL CALL.
I'M REALLY GLAD TO SEE YOU AGAIN, BUT YOUR PARENTS FILED A COMPLAINT ABOUT SOME THINGS THAT WERE TAKEN FROM THEIR APARTMENT.
WELL, THAT'S A NEW LINE OF ATTACK.
USUALLY THEY SEND SHRINKS, EX-NUNS-- DID YOU TAKE THOSE THINGS, LUCY? YOU KNOW, I'D ASK FOR A LAWYER, BUT MY PARENTS WOULD HAVE TO HIRE HIM.
YOU USING? IT MUST BE THE SUPER'S.
[ Laughing ] LOOK, UM, TRUTH IS, THIS GUY I HANG WITH, HE'S CUTE BUT TROUBLE.
WHAT CAN I SAY? YOU KNOW THOSE MODELS THAT LOOK LIKE JUNKIES? GUESS WHAT.
THEY ARE! HEY, WHO'S THIS? - THAT'S MY JENNY.
- OH.
I WAS MARRIED 10 MONTHS TO A MAJOR ASSHOLE.
LEFT ME ABOUT TWO WEEKS BEFORE SHE WAS BORN.
SHE'S UP IN DARIEN.
MY PARENTS DECIDED THAT I WAS UNFIT, AND GAVE HER TO MY COUSIN FRANK.
- DID YOU FIGHT IT? - PLEASE, YOU TRY FIGHTING MY FATHER.
I GET TO SEE HER SOME.
WHEN I CAN HOLD ON TO TRAIN FARE FOR MORE THAN A DAY.
SO, THIS STUFF YOU STOLE, YOU STILL HAVE IT? WHAT, MY DAD GIVE YOU AN EARFUL ABOUT THE MONT BLANC? YOU KNOW, HE'S GOT PARKINSON'S DISEASE.
HE FEELS LIKE THE WORLD LET HIM DOWN.
IT ALL LANDS ON ME.
YOU KNOW, IF YOU ONLY KNEW HOW MANY TIMES-- HOW MANY TIMES I HAD TO LISTEN TO HOW MY GRAMPS JUST MADE IT OUT OF THE VINEYARD FOR DAD'S GRADUATING YALE LAW, - GIVING HIM THAT STUPID PEN.
- THEY WANT THAT STUFF BACK, - OR YOU COULD GET LOCKED UP, LUCY.
- [ Sighs ] GOD.
- I SOLD THAT STUFF LAST NIGHT.
- ON THE STREET? PAWNBROKER.
SHOULD WE GO TALK TO HIM, SEE IF WE CAN WORK THIS OUT? OH, YEAH.
HE'LL DO NEXT TO ANYTHING FOR ME.
HE'S A HUGE FAN OF MINE.
- TYPHOID MARY.
- I'D LIKE TO SEE YOUR POLICE BOOK.
- IN REFERENCE TO WHAT? - JUST SHOW ME THE BOOK.
- HOW MANY WAYS YOU GONNA JAM SOMEONE UP? - WHAT, YOU THINK -I WANT TO BRING HER DOWN HERE? - WELL, I DIDN'T SEE HER LANDING BY PARACHUTE.
I DON'T SEE ENTRIES FOR JEWELRY AND A MONT BLANC PEN SOLD BY MISS HASTINGS.
WELL, I-I GOT BEHIND IN MY PAPERWORK.
- HAVE YOU STILL GOT THOSE THINGS, MR.
BABCOCK? - YEAH, I GOT THEM.
- AND NONSPECIFIC URETHRITIS.
- ALL RIGHT, YOU KNOW WHAT? I'M GONNA WAIT OUTSIDE.
- LUCY! -YEAH, MAYBE WHILE WE'RE GETTIN' THIS DONE, SHE COULD TURN A HALF-AND-HALF IN THE ALLEY.
JUST SHOW ME THE JEWELRY AND THE PEN, AND KEEP YOUR MOUTH SHUT.
"WE DON'T NEED NO PARTY HATS.
I'LL JUST DO YOU RIGHT BEHIND THE COUNTER.
" TWO DAYS LATER, I'M AT THE DOCTOR'S.
- IS THAT THE STUFF? - YEAH, THAT'S THE STUFF.
IF YOU'LL RELEASE THIS PROPERTY, THE OWNERS WILL COME BACK TO COMPENSATE YOU BY THE END OF THE BUSINESS DAY.
WE'LL OVERLOOK THE POLICE BOOK INFRACTION.
PLUS, SHE DON'T COME IN HERE NO MORE.
YEAH, I'M DYING TO SPEND SOME MORE TIME IN HERE.
OH, THIS AIN'T THE WORST PLACE YOU'RE GONNA SPEND TIME IN, YOU LOUSY JUNKIE WHORE.
SHUT UP! ANOTHER SATISFIED CUSTOMER.
HI, GINA.
HEY.
WHAT'S THAT, HAND LOTION? YEAH.
I'M GETTING HAND LOTION, VITAMINS, KITCHENWARES, AND MAYBE THESE MINTS.
EASY, YOU'RE GONNA GO THROUGH YOUR WHOLE PAYCHECK.
- THIS IS WHAT I'VE SELECTED, LIEUTENANT.
- SURE YOU NEED ALL THAT, GINA? -AREN'T THESE GOOD PRODUCTS? - WELL, MY WIFE SAYS THEY DEFINITELY ARE.
I'M REALLY JUST BUYING NECESSITIES, LIEUTENANT.
EXCEPT FOR THE MINTS.
YEAH.
YEAH, ALL RIGHT.
HOW'D THAT GO WITH, UH, ANGELA'S BOYFRIEND? - TREMENDOUSLY PRODUCTIVE.
- THERE'S NOTHING MORE WE COULD DO ABOUT IT.
THERE'S, UH, HALF A CHANCE IT STILL COULD COME UP WRONG.
[ Sighs ] THE D.
A.
'd NEVER MOVE ON A COMPLAINT.
- YEAH.
- HMM.
SO, HOW'S ENGAGEMENT LIFE? [ Chuckles ] YOU'RE GONNA LAUGH, BUT IT DOES FEEL DIFFERENT.
IT FEELS DIFFERENT? IT IS DIFFERENT.
FEELS GREAT.
WISH I COULD TELL PEOPLE.
PUT THE BOSS IN A BAD POSITION.
[ Sighs ] I KEEP THINKING WE COULD, UM, TELL ANDY.
- OH, YEAH, WITH A MEGAPHONE.
- UH-- ONE BY ONE HE'D TELL PEOPLE, AND IN COMPLETE CONFIDENCE.
[ Sighs ] WHAT'S UP? - WHAT? - WHAT'S GOING ON? - NOTHING.
- NOTHING, ANDY.
THIS REALLY SUCKS.
YOU KNOW, YOU REALLY GOT TO PUT ME THROUGH THIS, JILL? I MEAN, I SAW SCARED STRAIGHT,I SAW ALL OF THE PUBLIC SERVICE ADS-- LET'S TALK IN HERE.
ALL RIGHT.

- SO WHAT, ARE YOU GONNA THROW ME IN JAIL? - MIGHT COME TO THAT.
[ Sniffs ] I MEAN, I JUST REALLY GOTTA GO MEET SOME PEOPLE.
- MEANING YOU'VE GOTTA GET HIGH.
- OH, I GOTTA GO, SO THAT MEANS I'M GONNA SCORE DRUGS, RIGHT? YOU NEED TO GET INTO A PROGRAM, LUCY.
THAT'S THE CONDITION OF YOUR PARENTS NOT PURSUING CHARGES.
SURE.
OKAY.
FINE! YOU'VE GOT AN INTAKE INTERVIEW IN HALF AN HOUR AT PHOENIX HOUSE.
I WANT TO TAKE YOU OVER THERE.
JUST LOOK! LOOK! SIT DOWN! JILL, IT'S JU-- YOU MADE YOUR POINT.
HERE'S MY ADDRESS AND PHONE NUMBER.
I'M NOT PASSING YOU OFF.
[ Scoffing ] BUT YOU'VE GOT TO UNDERSTAND.
EITHER I TAKE YOU TO THAT PROGRAM, OR YOU'RE A COLLAR.
BOY, I'M REALLY, REALLY GLAD WE GOT BACK IN TOUCH, JILL.
DIANE, PROSS D.
O.
A.
, - ANY DESCRIPTION ON THE PROSS? - NO.
WORK IT WITH HER? THANKS.
YEAH.
HE/SHE PROSS, HACKED UP PRETTY GOOD.
OH, SON OF A BITCH.
[ Gasps ] THERE WAS ANOTHER HOOKER HERE SCREAMING, BUT SHE RAN AWAY.
- BLACK GIRL? - GOT A LICENSE PLATE NUMBER.
- SOMEONE TACKED IT TO A POLE.
- YEAH, WE'LL RUN THAT.
WHAT THE HELL'S THE POINT? IT'S GONNA BE THE BOYFRIEND.
LET'S GO PICK THE STUPID BASTARD UP.
HEY, YOU ALL RIGHT? DETECTIVE MEDAVOY'S CALLED IN SICK? SAID HE HAD A BAD UPSET STOMACH.
LET ME CALL HIM UP.
COME IN LIKE STORM TROOPERS TO A MAN'S PLACE OF WORK? UP ALL NIGHT, PLUS WE'RE STORM TROOPERS? LOOKED TO ME LIKE YOU CAME IN PRETTY VOLUNTARILY THERE, MR.
DRURY.
TO AVOID HUMILIATION.
NEXT TIME WHEN YOU GET A POLITE REQUEST ON THE PHONE, YOU'LL THINK TWICE ABOUT NOT HANGING UP.
[ Fancy ] HIS LINE'S BUSY.
DID HE SAY WHAT THE UPSET WAS FROM? [ Gina ] JUST GOT THE IMPRESSION IT WAS LIKE A STOMACH VIRUS.
OH, MORNING.
YEAH, WE GOT THIS GUY IN.
SOMEONE PUT HIS LICENSE PLATE NUMBER UP WHERE THE PROSTITUTE GOT MURDERED.
SO, YOU'RE LOOKING AT HIM AS A WITNESS OR THE PERP? WELL, MAYBE A TRICK.
HE COULD'VE SEEN SOMETHING.
WE STILL GOTTA LIKE THE BOYFRIEND FOR DOING HER.
YEAH, AND HE'S IN THE WIND.
WE SAT ON HIS PLACE ALL NIGHT.
WE'RE ALSO LOOKING FOR THE BLACK PROSS WHO USED TO HANG AROUND WITH THE D.
O.
A.
- MORNING, LIEU.
- YEAH.
UM, DID YOU HAPPEN TO SPEAK WITH GREG? YEAH, HE'S GOT SOME KIND OF STOMACH DIFFICULTY.
LIEU, I'M GONNA TALK TO THIS GUY.
DID HE SAY IT WAS VITAMIN-RELATED? HIS STOMACH PROBLEM? MM-HMM.
HE DIDN'T SAY, ONE WAY OR ANOTHER.
YEAH, OKAY.
HEY, GINA.
HEY, JAMES.
HMM.
NOT ONE DAMN BIT OF CONCERN FOR DAMAGE TO A PERSON'S REPUTATION? - WE'RE STILL ON THIS INTERESTING SUBJECT.
-[ Simone ] WHAT IS THAT? IS THAT AN UNEASY CONSCIENCE THERE, MR.
DRURY, READING SO MUCH INTO YOUR COWORKER'S REACTIONS? HOW 'BOUT IF YOUR WIFE KNEW WE WERE TALKING TO YOU? THAT'VE WOUND YOU UP EVEN MORE? SO, DID YOU TRANSACT ANY, UH, PERSONAL BUSINESS BEFORE GOING HOME FROM WORK YESTERDAY? AN ALLEY OFF OF 4th AND "D.
" - YOU PEOPLE ARE SCUM.
- NO ONE IS LOOKING TO EMBARRASS YOU HERE, ALL RIGHT? WE ARE INVESTIGATING A MURDER, AND WE'RE TRYING TO GET YOU TO COOPERATE.
I HAVE NOTHING TO DO WITH THAT.
A MURDER.
WE FIGURE THAT'S ABSOLUTELY POSSIBLE, SO WHY DON'T YOU STOP YOUR PISSING AND MOANING HOW EVERYONE'S INFRINGING YOUR GOOD NAME, TELL US WHAT YOU KNOW, SO MY PARTNER AND ME CAN DO A LITTLE FRESHENING UP.
THIS CAN BE KEPT FROM MY EMPLOYER AND MY FAMILY? WE NEED TO KNOW WHAT YOU SAW, MR.
DRURY.
[ Sighs ] OKAY.
WE GOT INTO THE CAR-- WAIT.
WAIT.
BACK UP.
WHAT? YOU PICKED HER UP ON THE STREET? JUST IN THAT IMMEDIATE VICINITY.
AND SHE ASKED IF I WANTED TO GO TO A HOTEL, AND I DIDN'T HAVE TIME, SO WE WENT INTO THE ALLEY.
SHE WAS JUST STARTING TO UNDO MY TROUSERS-- YOU'D PAID HER? FORTY DOLLARS.
AND BEFORE ANYTHING ELSE COULD HAPPEN, HER PIMP OR SOME STREET THIEF CAME UP TO THE WINDOW ON MY SIDE AND OPENED THE DOOR, AND HELD A KNIFE TO MY THROAT.
YOU HAD YOUR DOOR UNLOCKED? I WANTED TO BE ABLE TO GET AWAY QUICKLY IN-IN-IN CASE SHE DECIDED TO ROB ME.
ANYWAY, UH, HE TOOK MY MONEY AND THREW MY WALLET ON THE FLOOR, AND THEN HEADED AROUND THE FRONT OF THE CAR.
- I-I WAS JUST GLAD ENOUGH TO GET AWAY.
- AND SHE WAS STILL IN THE CAR? SHE, UM-- SHE GOT OUT.
SHE WAS SCREAMING AT HIM.
I DON'T KNOW IF THEY WERE WORKING TOGETHER, OR IF THE SCREAMING WAS A SHOW OR WHAT.
YOU SEE ANYBODY ELSE AROUND? A BLACK HOOKER CAME RUNNING.
I ALMOST RAN HER OVER.
- DESCRIBE THE GUY WHO ROBBED YOU.
- [ Inhales ] UH, MUSCULAR.
UM, MEDIUM HEIGHT.
HISPANIC.
ALL RIGHT, THANKS, MR.
DRURY.
WE MAY WANT YOU TO COME BACK IN LATER ON FOR A LINEUP.
I WILL NOT TESTIFY IN ANY OPEN FORUM.
HE SAID HE MIGHT NEED YOU FOR A LINEUP.
STOP YELLIN' BEFORE YOU'RE HIT.
- CAN I GO? - OKAY.
[ Sighs Deeply ] [ Door Slams ] WASH UP, HIT PEACHES'S STROLL? YEAH.
THINK IF HE'D HAVE KNOWN ABOUT ANGELA'S JOHNSON DOWN THERE, THAT WOULD HAVE BEEN AN UNHAPPY SURPRISE? THAT WOULD'VE BEEN THE ANCHOVY ON THE PIZZA.
- HI.
- OH, HI.
UM, COULD YOU CLOSE THE DOOR? THE WAY YOU SOUNDED ON THE PHONE, I THOUGHT I MIGHT FIND YOU IN RESTRAINTS.
THIS WON'T WORK, LILLIAN.
YOU NEED TO TAKE THESE PRODUCT SAMPLES HOME.
OBVIOUSLY, I'VE COME TO TAKE 'EM.
BUT I'D LIKE US TO TAKE ONE WHIRL AT DISCUSSING THIS RATIONALLY.
MEDAVOY'S SICK.
GOD KNOWS WHAT THAT'S ABOUT.
I DON'T THINK IT'S ABOUT THE VITAMINS YOU SOLD HIM.
AND I DON'T WANT TO HAVE TO WONDER ABOUT THAT, LILLIAN.
OR WORRY THAT GINA'S BUYING MINTS TO CURRY FAVOR WITH HER BOSS.
I CAN SEE WHERE THAT MIGHT BE A PROBLEM.
BUT IT SEEMS TO ME, UH, AN ARTICULATE AND FAIR-MINDED PERSON LIKE YOURSELF CAN COMMUNICATE THAT'S THE OPPOSITE OF WHAT WOULD HAPPEN.
- I TOLD THEM NOT TO FEEL OBLIGATED.
- I'M SURE THEY BELIEVED YOU.
IT'S YOU THAT CAN'T ACCEPT THAT'S THE CASE.
[ Sighs ] THIS COMPANY'S BEEN IN BUSINESS FOR 23 YEARS.
AND60 MINUTESDOES EXPOSEÉÉS ALL THE TIME ABOUT THESE PYRAMID SCHEMES.
YOU'RE WORRIED ABOUT DISTRIBUTORS SELLING FRANCHISES.
I'M NOT DOING THAT.
THIS IS CRAZY.
WE HAD THIS CONVERSATION LAST NIGHT.
LOOK, WITH THE GIRLS IN SCHOOL, I KNOW WE NEED THE EXTRA INCOME, BUT I DON'T WANT ANYONE THINKIN'-- - DON'T SHAKE YOUR HEAD AT ME.
- I'LL TAKE THESE HOME.
WHAT ARE YOU SHAKING YOUR HEAD FOR? I'D LIKE TO TAKE THAT BOOB THAT SITS IN JUDGMENT IN YOUR HEAD, AND PUNCH HIM IN THE NOSE.
I'M SORRY.
[ Rustling Paper ] WILL YOU AT LEAST TELL PEOPLE THEY CAN CALL ME? WITH NO OBLIGATION.
NO, ARTHUR.
IF THEY CALL AND DON'T BUY, I'M GONNA COME AND BEAT 'EM WITH A STICK.
- I LOVE YOU.
- I LOVE YOU BACK.
MR.
HASTINGS? MRS.
HASTINGS? CAN YOU IDENTIFY THESE ITEMS FOR ME? THAT'S MY PEN.
THAT'S YOUR GRANDMOTHER'S NECKLACE AND EARRINGS.
- AND IS THAT EVERYTHING THAT WAS TAKEN? - YES.
- I SUPPOSE SO.
- GOOD.
- WILL YOU SIGN THIS FOR ME? - SURE.
YOU'LL NEED TO GO TO THAT ADDRESS I'VE INDICATED TO TAKE IT OUT OF PAWN.
LUCINDA ENROLLED AT PHOENIX HOUSE YESTERDAY.
I PROMISE YOU, IT'S NOT A COUNTRY CLUB.
I CAN'T TELL YOU HOW GRATEFUL WE ARE.
MRS.
HASTINGS, YOU NEED TO UNDERSTAND THAT LUCINDA'S TRYING TO GET WELL IS A LONG, HARD PROCESS AND DOESN'T HAVE THE WORLD'S GREATEST SUCCESS RATE.
SHE'S NEVER UNDERSTOOD THAT.
SHE DOESN'T WANT TO NOW.
MR.
HASTINGS, I'M SURE YOU UNDERSTAND.
KNOWING THE PROCESS IS HARD, AND LUCY MIGHT NOT SUCCEED, DOESN'T MEAN YOU STOP LOVING HER.
IT MEANS YOUR LIFE CAN'T REVOLVE AROUND WHETHER SHE DOES OR DOESN'T.
OTHER PEOPLE ARE SUFFERING TOO.
I TOLD LUCY TO USE THIS WHENEVER SHE FELT THE NEED.
I HOPE YOU'LL DO THE SAME.
CAN WE CALL LUCY? I THINK YOU SHOULD WAIT TILL SHE CALLS YOU FIRST.
JILL, I FEEL THIS IS JUST A TURNING OF THE CORNER.
-I'M JUST SO OPTIMISTIC.
- THANKS FOR YOUR HELP.
SURE.
AH, CAN YOU SHOW YOURSELVES OUT? WE GOT OUR THUMBS UP OUR BUTTS PRETTY GOOD.
PERP LIABLE PRESENTLY TO BE RELOCATED TO SAN JUAN.
NOW THIS PEACHES IS IN THE WIND.
YEAH, PEACHES IN THE WIND PROBABLY MEANS JIMMY CORTEZ IS STILL AROUND.
YOU FIGURE SHE'S HIDING FROM HIM? WHAT MAKES YOU THINK SO CLEAR AFTER BEING UP ALL NIGHT? WE'VE GOTTA FIND PEACHES, AND WE GOTTA SIT ON THIS GUY CORTEZ'S PLACE AGAIN.
HOW WOULD YOU PUT OUT A DESCRIPTION ON HER? "SUBJECT LOOKS LIKE ROLONDA OR GODFREY CAMBRIDGE.
" [ Stifles Laugh ] THAT'S ACCURATE, BOBBY.
CRIME'S DOWN.
CRIME'S DOWN.
THEY ALWAYS COME UP WITH THESE FULL-OF-NONSENSE STATISTICS.
LOOK AT THAT CHEEK OF YOURS.
I'D JUST AS SOON NOT TALK ABOUT IT.
YOU KNOW, YOU NEED TO GET YOU A LITTLE PIECE FOR YOUR PURSE.
- ARTHUR CARTWELL.
- SAYS HE HAS INFORMATION ON YOUR CASE.
YEAH.
HE'S GOT INFORMATION ON EVERY CASE, INCLUDING THAT BIG BLIMP THAT CAUGHT ON FIRE.
- WHICH ONE CRASHED? NOT SNOOPY? - WHAT DO YOU GOT, ARTHUR? I'D LIKE TO COMMUNICATE IN SOMEWHAT MORE CONFIDENTIAL SURROUNDINGS.
OH, ABSOLUTELY.
YOU LOOK LIKE SOMETHING THE CAT DRAGGED IN.
SLEEPLESS NIGHT.
SO! SO? SO.
[ Coughs ] PRETTY PROSS NAMED ANGELA, SHE NO LONGER AMONGST US.
GIVE IT UP, CARTWELL.
HOW 'BOUT YOU GIVING UP HOW MUCH A EYEWITNESS I.
D.

I.
D.
AND AN EYEWITNESS TESTIMONY WILL GET YOU A COUPLE THOUSAND.
BUT YOU GOTTA MAKE ALL THE HEARINGS, ARTHUR.
I'M FAMILIAR WITH HOW THEM WHEELS TURN.
ARE WE HEARING CHAPTER AND VERSE ANY POINT IN THE NEAR FUTURE? JIMMY CORTEZ DID ANGELA.
CUT HER UP IN THAT ALLEY LIKE A BIRD.

THEY'RE IN THE STREET HAVING A SHOUTING MATCH, THEN HE TAKE HER OVER IN THAT ALLEY START CUTTIN' ON HER-- I MEAN, I'M LIKE, "OH, MAN," BUT, YOU KNOW, BEFORE I COULD DO ANYTHING, HE GONE.
HMM.
WHAT WERE THEY FIGHTING ABOUT? I DON'T KNOW.
I GUESS IT WAS A-A LOVER'S QUARREL.

SEE, NOW THERE YOU GO WITH THIS DOUBTIN' ME.
THAT BLACK WHORE SEND YOU IN HERE, HUH? TOLD YOU WHAT SHE SAW, CLEAN UP THE STORY? I DON'T HAVE THE FAINTEST IDEA WHAT YOU'RE TALKING ABOUT.
OH, SURE YOU DO, ARTHUR.
YOU SEE, WE KNOW PEACHES WAS THERE.
SHE'S AFRAID TO TESTIFY.
SHE WANTS THIS GUY COLLARED, SHE COMES TO YOU.
[ Coughs ] OKAY.

SHE SHOWED ME YOUR CARD.
HI, MOM! HI, SWEETHEART! HI.

ALL RIGHT.
STAY WITH THE BOYS.
[ Moaning ] OH, SH-- - [ Sighs Deeply ] - JILL.

I'M TOO SICK.
I'M NOT ASKING YOU WHAT YOU STOLE.
I'M ASKING WHAT DRUGS YOU TOOK.
I WAS TRYING FOR SMACK, BUT IT WAS A BEAT BAG.
- YOU DON'T KNOW WHAT WAS IN IT? - NO.
[ Gasping ] - EMMETT! - WALKED OUT OF THAT PROGRAM, AND TRIED TO TRICK A COP BUT IT WAS A BEAT BAG.
CALL AN AMBULANCE AND SHUT THE DOOR.
SO, WHEN THE BAG WAS BAD YOU CAME BACK HERE TO ROB ME? STILL HAD TO GET OFF.
I WASN'T ATTRACTING TOO MANY JOHNS THROWING UP ON MYSELF.
[ Laughing ] CAN I GET SOME WATER? NO, I DON'T WANT TO PUT ANYTHING IN YOUR STOMACH - UNTIL WE KNOW WHAT'S GOING ON.
- GOD, YOU'VE GOT SO MANY RULES.
-[ Knocking ] -[ Boy ] MOM, CAN I COME IN? - NO, SWEETHEART.
-I WANT TO DRAW A PICTURE FOR YA.
- WE'LL DO IT LATER.
- [ Grunts ] - WHAT'S GONNA HAPPEN NOW? - WE'LL GET YOU TAKEN CARE OF AT THE HOSPITAL.
- THEN YOU'RE GOING TO JAIL.
- [ Sobbing ] I AIN'T GONNA BE A PART OF IT.
PEACHES, YOU REACHED OUT TO SOMEONE ELSE TO GIVE A PERJURED STATEMENT 'CAUSE YOU WANTED THIS GUY COLLARED.
[ Sobs ] DID YOU SEE HOW HE CUT HER? - WE'LL PROTECT YOU FROM CORTEZ.
- HOW YOU PROTECTED ANGELA? SHE CAME HERE AND BEGGED YOU FOR HELP.
THERE WAS NOTHING WE COULD DO THERE, PEACHES.
BRING THE D.

A WHORE GETTING SLAPPED, ALL'S WE'RE GONNA GET IS, "DON'T LET THE DOOR HIT YOUR ASS.
" MURDER'S A DIFFERENT STORY, PEACHES.
EYEWITNESS, YOU'LL GET HOUSING, D.
A.
's SQUAD LOOKING AFTER YOU.
[ Sobs ] SHE WAS MY FRIEND, YOU KNOW? WE WERE FRIENDS FOR SIX YEARS.
I KNOW THAT.
HERE WE GO WITH THE FAUCETS.
I'LL MAKE YOU THIS PROMISE, AND I'LL PROMISE ANGELA AT HER GRAVE.
SOME FUTURE DAY WHEN JIMMY'S UNAWARE, I WILL COME AND TAKE A RAZOR TO HIM.
BUT DON'T DO NOTHING SIMPLE, LIKE GIVE UP A STATEMENT NOW.
WHEN HE'S UNAWARE, 'CAUSE A CUT THROAT DON'T ENTAIL WALKING AROUND ON BAIL.
[ Knocking On Door ] WHAT'S GOING ON? THAT, UH, SNITCH CARTWELL SAYS HE CAN PUT YOU WITH YOUR PERP.
PEACHES, WE GOTTA GO SOMEWHERE.
I-I'M GONNA GET HANK TO TAKE YOU HOME, ALL RIGHT? - SURE.
WHATEVER.
- I'LL GET HANK.
[ Cortez ] HEY, LET ME OUT.
I'M GONNA GET YOU, CARTWELL.
[ Cartwell ] HEY, BATTER, BATTER-- LET ME OUTTA HERE! - BATTER, BATTER, BATTER-- -[ Cortez ] LET ME OUTTA HERE, CARTWELL! 'CAUSE YOU'RE NOT GOING NOWHERE, MY BROTHER! [ Tires Screech ] -LET ME OUTTA HERE! - [ Cartwell ] DO JUST LIKE I SAID.
I'LL BE DAMNED IF HE DON'T GOT HIM.
[ Simone ] WHAT'S HE GOT, A BOARD BLOCKING THE DOOR? HERE'S YOUR MAN, JIMMY CORTEZ, TRAPPED LIKE THE MIGHTY JOE YOUNG.
YOU'RE THE GREATEST, ARTHUR.
NOW, GET OUTTA HERE.
-[ Russell ] GET BACK.
- SHOO! HARD EVIDENCE! - YOU, ME AND JIMMY CORTEZ.
- GET OUTTA HERE NOW.
IT'S NOT TOO LATE IN THE DAY TO GET THAT MONEY ISSUED, IS IT? JUST CALL US IN THE MORNING.
I'M GOING DOWN THERE, MY BROTHER.
- READY! - CALM DOWN HERE.
DROP THAT PHONE.
THIS CASE HAS BEEN HUMILIATING IN EVERY ASPECT.
GET THAT PHONE THING.
COME ON, TAKE IT OUT.
JUST CALM DOWN.
- YOU SCUMMY LITTLE SNAKE! - [ Sipowicz ] YEAH, CAN'T ARGUE WITH YOU THERE, JIMMY.
- YOU BETTER HOPE I DON'T GET OUT! - SHUT THE HELL UP! PUT 'EM OVER YOUR HEAD! ALL RIGHT.
IT'S ALL OVER.
IT'S ALL OVER.
DETECTIVE.
[ Whispers ] I GOTTA GO.
[ Sighs ] HI.
I HOPE I'M NOT BOTHERING YOU.
NO.
YOU GAVE ME YOUR CARD.
HOW CAN I HELP YOU, MRS.
HASTINGS? I'VE JUST COME FROM THE HOSPITAL.
THE DOCTORS SEEMED TO FEEL LUCY WAS STABLE.
SHE IS SO SICK.
I WAS SO GRATEFUL TO YOU, JILL, FOR HELPING US RETRIEVE THOSE LOST ITEMS.
THOSE ITEMS WERE STOLEN, MRS.
HASTINGS.
YOU'RE RIGHT.
YOU'RE ABSOLUTELY RIGHT.
BUT MY UNDERSTANDING NOW IS, WE DROPPED THOSE CHARGES.
I'M PRESSING CHARGES.
THAT'S WHY LUCY'S BEING HELD.
I SEE.
AND YOU FEEL THAT'S BEST? MRS.
HASTINGS, LUCY IS A HEROIN ADDICT AND A STREET WHORE.
HER BODY AND MIND ARE BOTH SICK, AND SHE WON'T FACE ANY OF THAT.
I JUST CAN'T BELIEVE JAIL IS THE SOLUTION.
ARE YOU GONNA BAIL HER OUT? I-I CAN'T IMAGINE IT'S THE SOLUTION.
NO.
NO, IT'S NOT.
JAIL'S A TERRIBLE PLACE, BUT LUCY'S IN A TERRIBLE PLACE ALREADY.
I CAN'T SEE ANY OTHER WAY TO MAKE HER UNDERSTAND THAT.
WELL, COULDN'T SHE JUST STAY WHERE SHE IS IN THE HOSPITAL, WITH THE GUARD OUTSIDE? MRS.
HASTINGS, I DON'T WANT TO HURT YOUR FEELINGS, BUT THE WAY YOU'RE THINKING IS HELPING TO KEEP YOUR DAUGHTER SICK.
LUCY HAS TO FACE THE TRUTH WITHOUT SOMEONE PROTECTING HER, OR ELSE SHE WON'T FACE IT AT ALL, AND THEN SHE'S GONNA WIND UP DEAD.
I KNOW YOU DON'T WANT THAT.
MY HUSBAND IS DYING, AND NOW YOU'RE SAYING MY DAUGHTER MAY DIE? I'M SAYING YOUR DAUGHTER HAS TO LEARN HOW TO LIVE.
- I WASN'T ANYWHERES AROUND HER.
- 'CAUSE WE TOLD YOU NOT TO BE, RIGHT, JIMMY? YEAH, YOU'RE IN BIG COMPLIANCE WITH THE LAW.
SIT DOWN.
SIT DOWN! AND THE NEXT TIME YOU MURDER SOMEBODY, ASSHOLE, CHANGE YOUR SHOES.
THE LAB IS GONNA RUN THAT SHOE, JIMMY, AND IF THAT'S ANGELA'S BLOOD, YOU ARE GOING DOWN FOR MURDER, MAN.
IF THAT'S BLOOD, I DON'T KNOW HOW THAT GOT THERE.
RIGHT NOW, WE GOT COLD-BLOODED MURDER.
IF IT WENT THAT WAY, FINE, DON'T GIVE NO STATEMENT UP-- WE GOT A LOT OF PIMP MURDERS GO THAT WAY.
YOU KNOW, IT DIDN'T GO DOWN LIKE THAT! I AIN'T NO PIMP.
SO, WHAT? WAS IT THE OPERATION? HUH, JIMMY? DID THAT ENTER INTO IT? [ Sighs Heavily ] SHE HAD ME DOING THINGS THAT WAS NEVER WHO I WAS.
OUT THERE ON THE STROLL, GIVING ME HER MONEY.
I WANTED A WIFE AND A HOME! SHE'S TREATING ME LIKE A PIMP.
SO WHAT HAPPENED ON THE STREET? IT WAS JUST LIKE YOU SAID.
WE WAS BEEFIN' ABOUT THE OPERATION.
SHE SAYS SHE'S GOING OUT TO WORK.
I GET ALL MESSED UP DRINKING, AND I GO OUT LOOKING FOR HER.
IT ALL EXTENDS OUT OF THAT.
YOU FIND HER WITH A JOHN? JIMMY, THAT MAKE YOU UPSET? [ Sniffles ] [ Shivers ] WHEN I MET HER, I THOUGHT SHE WAS THE MOST BEAUTIFUL GIRL.
[ Sobbing ] AND I'M NOT A FAG! YOU CAN'T JUST TURN YOURSELF INTO THAT! YOU WANT TO WRITE THIS UP? BE DANCING SOMETIMES.
SLOW DANCING.
BE HOLDING HER.
SHE WAS SO SWEET.
AND THAT SMILE-- [ Chuckling ] "THAT'S IT, BABY.
DON'T CHANGE NOTHIN'.
JUST DO HOW YOU ARE.
" AND YOU JUST KILLED HER? [ Sobbing ] [ Door Opening ] - CORTEZ WRITING HIS STATEMENT? - SIMONE'S GOT THE BETTER RAPPORT.
- OKAY.
- COULD I BUY SOME OF YOUR LAUNDRY DETERGENT? I'VE DECIDED NOT TO SELL THAT IN THE SQUAD.
- DETERGENT SPECIFICALLY? - YEAH.
THE WHOLE PRODUCT LINE.
AT SOME POINT, IF PEOPLE WANT TO CONTACT LILLIAN, THAT'S BETWEEN THEM AND HER.
- HOW'D YOU COME TO THAT? - WELL, BEING IN A POSITION OF AUTHORITY, - IT MADE ME UNCOMFORTABLE.
- THIS ISN'T DIRECTED AT ME? - WHAT ARE YOU TALKING ABOUT? - YOU'RE NOT SELLING TO OTHERS, BUT NOT TO ME? - NO.
-[ Door Opens ] HEY.
HEY, GREG, HOW YOU FEELING? [ Sighs ] OH, YEAH, BETTER.
I'M UP TO 4:00 TO 12:00.
SUCH AN IMBECILE.
I KNOW THAI FOOD DON'T AGREE WITH ME.
- HEY, GREG.
- HEY.
THAT GUY'S WRITING, BOSS.
I GOT THE FIVE.
YOU WANNA TAKE OFF? SO, BOSS, UH, YOU THINK VITAMINS HELP ME, UH, FIGHT OFF MY UPSET SO SUCCESSFULLY? YOU KNOW THAT'S NOT LOGICAL.
DON'T SAY THAT 'CAUSE IT'S LILLIAN'S FRANCHISE.
WELL, I'M GOING HOME.
NIGHT.
DON'T MOVE, MEDAVOY.
[ Waiter ] HERE YOU GO.
THANKS.
HE SAW THE RING.
OH, YEAH? MM-HMM.
YOU THINK HE'S GONNA CALL THE BOSS? [ Chuckling ] HAVING TO KEEP EVERYTHING SECRET, BOBBY, THAT'S WHY A CHURCH WEDDING DOESN'T REALLY MAKE SENSE.
YEAH, THERE'S SO MANY PEOPLE THAT WE CARE ABOUT WE CAN'T EVEN INVITE.
MM.
I UNDERSTAND THE JOB, NOT WANTING MARRIED PEOPLE TO WORK TOGETHER.
I JUST-- I WISH THEY WOULD MAKE AN EXCEPTION FOR US.
A CITY HALL WEDDING DEFINITELY DON'T STRIKE ME AS BEING TOO ROMANTIC.
MAYBE WE COULD DRIVE TO CONNECTICUT SOMEWHERE.
YEAH.
[ Simone ] OH, MAN.
[ Russell ] WHAT? THE WAITER, HE TOOK TOO LONG BRINGING YOUR SHERBET.
WHAT'S THE MATTER? HEY, ROBERT.
HEY, HOW'S IT GOING THERE, JOE? DIANE RUSSELL, JOE SALVO.
- PLEASURE, DIANE.
- HI.
- SIT DOWN? - NO, I GOT PEOPLE.
- SO, YOU STILL WITH THE DEPARTMENT? - YEAH, I AM.
HOW 'BOUT YOU? - YEAH, I GOT MY APPLICATION IN.
- [ Chuckles ] WHAT DO THEY PAY YOU, 50? WITH OVERTIME? - OH, OPENING UP MY PAYCHECKS.
- BEST-LOOKING GUY.
SMARTEST.
HAD TO GET CURSED WITH A CONSCIENCE, HUH, BOBBY? - ANYWAYS, GOOD TO SEE YOU, JOE.
- I'D LIKE TO SIT DOWN WITH YOU SOMETIME.
- YEAH, WE SHOULD WORK THAT OUT.
- TAKE CARE, ROBERT.
WISEGUY? INDEPENDENT.
STICKUP GUY.
I GUESS MAYBE HE PAYS THE WISEGUYS SOME TRIBUTE.
[ Chuckles ] SOMEDAY, I KNOW, I'M GONNA MEET ALL THE UPSTANDING CITIZENS FROM YOUR NEIGHBORHOOD.
I DON'T HOW I GOT THROUGH THE NET.
YOU WANT TO GET OUTTA HERE? NO, I WANT TO TALK TO MY GIRL ABOUT OUR WEDDING.
I LIKE THE CONNECTICUT IDEA.
YEAH? YEAH.
FROM MR.
SALVO.
TELL MR.
SALVO, "THANK YOU VERY MUCH.
" WE'RE PRETTY WELL DONE HERE.
THIS IS A DESSERT WINE.
HEY, I KNOW WHAT THAT IS.
TELL HIM WE DON'T WANT IT.
[ Softly ] WE'RE GOING.
HMM.
I GUESS JOE IS NOT GONNA LET US WORK OUT GETTING MARRIED.
JOE DON'T LET US WORK OUT GETTING MARRIED, I'LL SHOOT HIM IN THE HEAD.
YOU JUST MAKE SURE YOU GET THE DROP ON HIM, 'CAUSE HE WILL SHOOT YOU FIRST.
READY? COME ON.
