AH, THIS NATION'S DOOMED.
[ Exercise Machinery Whirring ] - HEY, GREG.
- MORNING, ABBY.
THIS IS A GOOD SURPRISE.
I-I-I'M IN A MUST-RESUME SITUATION, ABBY.
I'M NOT EVEN GONNA TELL YOU HOW MANY POUNDS I GAINED BACK WITH MY PEANUT BUTTER BINGEING.
WELL, GOOD FOR YOU FOR STARTING.
[ Chuckles ] AND HOW'S KATHY? GOOD.
FINE.
SEND REGARDS.
WHY DON'T YOU DO THAT IN PERSON, GREG? SORRY? WELL, NOT TO BE PUSHY, BUT YOU'VE BEEN THREATENING TO COOK USA MEAL.
AH.
[ Chuckles ] YES.
WELL, TO BE HONEST, ABBY, IF THAT WOULD BE THE SETTING FOR ANOTHER STEP IN WHATEVER STEP-BY-STEP IDEAS YOU HAVE INVOLVING ME, I'D PREFER YOU SAID THE STEP RIGHT OUT, BECAUSE THE OTHER ONES LEADING UP TO THEM AND THEN SUBSEQUENTLY, UH-- I'VE PEANUT-BUTTER BINGED AND GAINED A LOT OF WEIGHT EACH TIME.
WE'D LIKE YOU TO DONATE SPERM SO THAT I COULD GET PREGNANT.
[ Whirring Runs Down, Stops ] I'VE, UH-- I'VE IMAGINED SEVERAL TIMES THAT, UH, THIS COULD BE WHERE THE, UH, STEPS WERE LEADING.
AND HOW DO YOU FEEL ABOUT THAT? LIKE EATING PEANUT BUTTER.
GREG, WE JUST WANTED YOU TO MEET KATHY, SO THAT YOU WOULD-- YOU WOULD KNOW THAT THE BABY WOULD HAVE A STABLE HOME LIFE, AND-- YEP.
YEP.
YEP.
YEP.
OBVIOUSLY, YOU'RE GONNA HAVE TO THINK ABOUT THIS.
I'M GONNA ASK YOU TO EXCUSE ME NOW, ABBY.
GREG, I HOPE YOU'RE NOT GOIN' TO BINGE.
NO, NO.
I JUST, UH-- [ Panting ] I HAVE SOMETHING TO DO UPSTAIRS.
- WHAT'S GOIN' ON, VINCE? - HI.
CALLED YOU GUYS IN EARLY, HUH? YEAH.
A GUNSHOT VICTIM OVER AT BELLEVUE.
WHAT HAD THE NIGHT WATCH SO OCCUPIED? UH, DOUBLE IN MIDTOWN, THEN SOMEONE THREW SHOTS OUTSIDE A NIGHTCLUB ON VARICK STREET.
OH, YEAH? WHAT WAS THAT ABOUT? WELL, I, UM, GOT ONE OF THE GUYS IN THE COFFEE ROOM.
HE SELLS SAUSAGES OUT ON THE SIDEWALK, JUST RIGHT OUTSIDE THE PLACE.
- AND HE TOLD YOU-- - WELL, BUT HE'S THE ONLY WITNESS I HAD LEVERAGE ON, OFF OF NO FOOD HANDLER'S PERMIT.
BUT HE DIDN'T TELL ME DICK.
WHAT-- WHAT TIME WERE THE GUNSHOTS, VINCENT? - 3:30.
- [ Simone ] SEE, OUR GUNSHOT VICTIM GOT ADMITTED AT 3:45.
- WE PROBABLY OUGHTA TALK TO THIS GUY, HUH? - NO ONE SAID NO ONE WAS HIT.
- ANYONE SAY ANYONE WAS ROBBED? - DEFINITELY NOT.
ALL I GOT WAS SOME STREET ASSHOLE THROWING SHOTS.
PLUS, NO FOOD PERMIT FOR THE SAUSAGE GUY.
UH, WHAT'S THIS GUY'S NAME, VINCE? - UH, LORENZO SHARP.
-[ Simone ] OH, GOOD.
YEAH.
EXCELLENT.
I WANT TO TELL YOU THIS: I'M GETTING THOSE CHEST PAINS AGAIN.
YEAH, HUH? YEAH.
I WANT TO TELL YOU SOMETHIN' ELSE.
TWELVE DAYS AGO I SNUCK IN NEW JERSEY FOR A-- A STRESS TEST-- INJECTIONS IN MY VEINS-- AND I TESTED ABNORMAL.
AND I WANNA TELL YOU THAT NOW.
- YOU GETTIN' PAINS RIGHT NOW? - NO, BUT I'M VERY UPSET.
WANT SOMEONE TO GIVE YOU A RIDE HOME? WE'LL TAKE A RIDE.
NO.
YOU GO AHEAD.
- I'M GONNA GO IN A FEW MINUTES.
- HEY, YOU GOTTA TAKE CARE OF YOURSELF THOUGH, VINCE, HUH? POOR BASTARD.
SHOWS YOU CAN BE STUPID ANDIN BAD HEALTH.
I'M DETECTIVE SIMONE, LORENZO.
THIS IS DETECTIVE SIPOWICZ.
Y'ALL DRAG ME IN HERE.
MAN, I'M JUST TRYIN' TO MAKE A LIVING.
I AIN'T HURTIN' NOBODY.
- ALL RIGHT.
DON'T GO TO PIECES.
- WE NEED TO KNOW WHAT YOU SAW ON THE STREET BEFORE.
NOT A DAMN THING, MAN.
- YOU DIDN'T SEE NO ROBBERY? - NOPE.
- HEAR NO GUNSHOTS? - UH-UH.
YES, YOU DID, LORENZO.
YOU SAW DADDY KOOL GET ROBBED, AND YOU SAW HIM SHOT.
NO, SIR.
JUST GIVE ME MY SUMMONS.
LORENZO, NOW MY SHIFT DIDN'T EVEN START YET, AND THREE PEOPLE ALREADY INSULTED MY INTELLIGENCE-- WHAT OCCURRED, WHAT DIDN'T OCCUR IN THIS INCIDENT-- PLUS ONE TELLS ME TO KISS HIS ASS.
NOW IT'S ROLLIN' ONTO YOU.
NOW WE BOTH KNOW THAT'S NOT FAIR, BUT YOU'RE THE ONE UP FOR THE BEATING.
- YOU SHOULD GIVE UP WHAT YOU SAW, LORENZO.
- Y-Y'ALL TRYING TO GET ME HURT.
YOU WORRY ABOUT NOW.
LET THE FUTURE TAKE CARE OF ITSELF.
WE KNOW YOU WERE OUT THERE WHEN THIS NONSENSE WENT DOWN, MAN.
- TH-THIS ALL IN CONFIDENCE, RIGHT? - ABSOLUTELY.
THE SHOTS WENT OFF-- DADDY KOOL AND THEM COMIN' OUT THE IBEX, RIGHT? ONE OF THE BOYS GET THE CAR AND BRING IT AROUND-- A LEXUS 400 S.
C.
THEN A DUDE WITH A PISTOL COME ACROSS THE STREET.
BANG, BANG! SO I HIT THE PAVEMENT.
THE BODYGUARD BACKS OFF, THE-- THE THIEF TAKES HIS JEWELRY, AND THEN HE BUSTS SOME SHOTS OFF, BACKS OFF, A-AND THEN JUST BOOKED ACROSS THE STREET.
THAT-- THAT WAS IT.
WE'RE GONNA NEED SOME HELP WITH WHAT THIS GUY LOOKS LIKE, LORENZO.
WORD, I-- I-I DIDN'T SEE HIM.
- YOU DIDN'T SEE THIS GUY? - LOOK, MAN, DON'T-- DON'T GO GRABBIN' ME AGAIN.
I'M TELLIN' YOU, I DIDN'T SEE HIM TO SAY WHAT HE LOOKED LIKE.
I-I GOT THE PLATES ON HIS RIDE THOUGH.
SO THIS BOOKIN' ACROSS THE STREET-- THAT WOUND UP IN A VEHICLE? YOU GET A CHANCE LATER ON, MAYBE YOU CAN COME BACK, LORENZO.
WE'LL GET A REIMBURSEMENT OF THE TIME YOU LOST SELLIN' SAUSAGES.
MAN, COOL.
MAYBE WE GET LUCKY OFF THE PLATE-- GET A MUG SHOT FOR THE OTHER VICTIMS TO LOOK AT.
MAYBE WE MOVE THAT SINGER.
YOU REASON WITH HIM, I LET HIM INSULTME.
[ Chattering ] [ Phone Ringing ] [ Man ] LET'S TAKE 'EM UP.
- HOW'S IT GOIN', LIEUTENANT? - WHAT'S THAT? RADIO TEAM COLLARED A DRUG DEALER-- SAYS THAT ONE COP GRABBED UP HIS BANKROLL, 600 BUCKS.
WHAT DO THE COPS SAY? JONES-- THAT THE DEALER DON'T ACCUSE-- HE HAD NOTHIN' TO DO WITH NOTHIN'.
DOES HE BACK SZYMANSKI? YOU KNOW THE OTHER COP? YEAH.
DOES JONES BACK SZYMANSKI? HE BACKS HIM AS MUCH AS HE SAW.
SAYS HE WAS GONE 90 SECONDS TO SECURE THE RADIO CAR.
WHAT DOES SZYMANSKI SAY? SAYS HE'S SET UP.
BY WHO? THE DEALER, HIS PARTNER, YOU.
HE SAYSISET HIM UP? HE WASN'T MAKIN' A LOT OF SENSE.
- WILL YOU KEEP ME POSTED ON THIS? - ABSOLUTELY.
- HEY, GREG.
- WE UP? - NAH.
NOBODY'S LOOKIN' FOR US.
- [ Sighs ] ABBY DROPPED THE ENTIRE OTHER SHOE WHILE I WAS ON THE STAIRMASTER-- WHAT THIS, UH, GETTIN' TO KNOW HER GIRLFRIEND'S BEEN ABOUT.
- THEY WANT ME TO DONATE SPERM.
- DONATE IT? THAT'S RIGHT.
WANT ME TO GET ABBY PREGNANT.
I NEVER HEARD IT CALLED THAT BEFORE.
YEAH, WELL, THAT HAPPENS TO BE THE TERMINOLOGY.
THAT'S THE TERMINOLOGY FOR THIS? THEY DON'T WANT ME TO DO THAT, JAMES.
THEY WANT ME, UH, TO-- TO-- TO GIVE MY SPERM IN, LIKE, AN OUTER-BODY EXPERIENCE, AND THEN, UH-- APPROPRIATE TIME, IT'S GIVEN TO ABBY.
I CAN SEE WHY YOU WENT THROUGH THAT PEANUT BUTTER.
YEAH.
I'M THINKIN' ON GOIN' THROUGH THE WINDOW.
HEY, GREG, IF IT'S STRESSFUL, JUST SAY NO.
I DON'T KNOW IF IT'S STRESSFUL.
I HAVEN'T DONE THAT IN SO LONG.
I'M NOT SAYIN' PHYSICALLY STRESSFUL.
I'M SAYIN' IF IT'S A STRESSFUL CONCEPT.
[ Sighs ] I GOT TWO KIDS I DON'T LIVE WITHNOW.
- HOW HARD THEY COMIN' AT YOU WITH THIS? - IT'S ME, JAMES.
TH-THEY'RE-- THEY'RE NOT BEIN' ASSERTIVE AT ALL.
IT'S ENTIRELY UP TO ME.
AH, IN A WAY I GUESS IT'S KINDA, LIKE, UH, FLATTERING.
BUT YOU DON'T WANNA WIND UP LIKE EDDIE MURPHY IN THAT PROFESSOR MOVIE.
OH, THAT'S WHERE I'M HEADED, JAMES.
NO QUESTION.
THAT'S, UH-- THAT'S THE ROAD I'M ON.
I'M IN THE SUBURB OF THAT JURISDICTION.
WELL, ANYWAYS, I WAS JUST, UH, GETTIN' SOME COFFEE.
- THANKS FOR THE INPUT, JAMES.
- STRAIGHTEN THIS OUT FOR YOURSELF.
[ Snores, Clears Throat ] SO, THIS RAPPER, DADDY KOOL, IS PRETTY CLEAN.
- TWO YEARS PROBATION FOR A BEEF UPSTATE.
- [ Sniffles ] UH, ROBBERY SQUAD SAYS NONE OF THE OTHER VICTIMS GAVE ANYTHING MORE THAN A GENERAL DESCRIPTION.
- WE GOT A HIT ON THE PLATE, AND WE GOT NOBODY TO LOOK AT.
- UH, THIS DILDO RAPPER, HE'S-- HE'S GONNA HAVE A COMPLETE CHANGE OF HEART.
-HE'LL HELP US WHEN HE COMES IN.
-I'M NATHAN DEE.
I'M HERE FOR DADDY KOOL.
- SCUMBAG SENDS HIS MANAGER.
- HOW'S IT GOIN'? WE SAW YOU AT THE HOSPITAL BEFORE.
I'M DETECTIVE SIMONE.
THIS IS DETECTIVE SIPOWICZ.
NATHAN DEE.
YOU'RE ANTHONY'S MANAGER, HUH? MM-HMM.
MM-MMM.
- HE ASKED ME TO COME DOWN HERE.
- UH, ACTUALLY OUR REQUEST WAS FOR ANTHONY TO COME.
YOU NEED TO UNDERSTAND THAT ANTHONY GOT A LOT OF PERSONAL AND RACIAL HISTORY WITH THE POLICE DEPARTMENT, AND THAT MAKES HIM RELUCTANT TO COOPERATE.
WE NEED TO UNDERSTAND THAT, HUH? SEE, WE WOULD LOOK AT IT LESS ANTHONY COOPERATIN' WITH US AND MORE HIM PROTECTIN' CIVILIANS.
WELL, BELIEVE IT, I WISH YOU LUCK WITH THAT.
OH, THANKS EVER SO MUCH.
[ Simone ] LOOK, NATHAN, THERE WAS A BYSTANDER OUT THERE, GOT A PLATE NUMBER ON A CAR.
THE OWNER OF THIS CAR, HE HAS A CRIMINAL ASSOCIATE BEEN BUSTED TWICE FOR THIS TYPE OF STICKUP.
NOW IF WE CAN GET ANTHONY TO GO THROUGH A PHOTO ARRAY-- UH, HE NOT GONNA DO THAT.
HEY.
I DON'T LISTEN TO THAT CRAP YOU CALL MUSIC, BUT I KNOW HOW WORLD WIDE WRESTLING WORKS.
COMES OUT, INSTEAD OF SOME BIG RAP WAR PAYBACK, THIS IS JUST A REGULAR STICKUP, YOU DON'T GET TO BOOST YOUR RECORD SALES.
ANDY, THE INDUSTRY'S TENDIN' TO PHASE RECORDS OUT.
THIS AIN'T ABOUT SALES.
ANTHONY LOST A UNCLE IN A POLICE INCIDENT.
-OH, HERE WE GO.
-HE HAD A LOT OF BAD EXPERIENCES GROWIN' UP IN COMPTON.
POLICE KEPT HASSLIN' HIM ON HIS WAY TO CHOIR PRACTICE? LOOK, EVERYBODY HAVE THEY POINT OF VIEW, RIGHT? - I'M JUST TRYIN' TO TELL YOU HOW IT IS WITH ANTHONY.
- HEY, NATHAN, YOU KNOW, HOW WOULD DADDY KOOL LOOK WITH HIS RAP FANS IF WE LET IT OUT, WHEN THIS STICKUP HAPPENS, - HE OFFERS THE PERP A HAND JOB NOT TO MESS HIM UP? - EASY, ANDY.
- HAVE I BEEN DISRESPECTFUL TO YOU? -[ Sipowicz ] NAH, NAH.
YOUR BIG JERK CLIENT HANDLED THAT ASPECT AT THE HOSPITAL.
OKAY.
I WASN'T THERE, SO I DON'T KNOW WHAT GOT SAID FIRST.
I'M JUST HERE TRYIN' TO ADDRESS THE SITUATION, THAT'S ALL.
OKAY.
[ Paper Rustling ] NOW, I SPOKE TO ANTHONY ABOUT THE INCIDENT, AND THIS IS HOW HE DESCRIBED THE GUY.
AND THAT IS OFF THE RECORD.
[ Simone ] UH, EXCUSE ME, NATHAN.
YOU KNOW, I GOTTA TELL YOU-- AND WE APPRECIATE YOUR BEIN' COOPERATIVE HERE, BUT WE'RE AWARE ABOUT ANTHONY'S RECORD.
WE DON'T GET NO SPECIFICS ON THIS INCIDENT, WE'RE GONNA VIOLATE ANTHONY'S PAROLE.
YOU WANT ANTHONY TO GO THROUGH A BUNCH OF MUG BOOKS? WE'RE TALKIN' ABOUT A COUPLE PHOTO ARRAYS.
SHOULD GO BY REAL FAST.
BIG DADDY'D BE IN AND OUT IN FIVE MINUTES.
YOU DON'T VIOLATE HIM IN BUFFALO, AND ANYTHING HE GIVES YOU IS OFF THE RECORD.
NOTHING GETS OUT HE CAME IN.
'BOUT AN HOUR AND A HALF.
WITH THEM, THAT'S TWO HOURS AND 15 MINUTES.
- THAT SZYMANSKI'S A PIECE OF WORK.
- WHAT'S HE SAYIN'? NO STATEMENT, WON'T AUTHORIZE A CAR SEARCH.
HE'S GOTTA LET YOU LOOK IN HIS LOCKER.
YEAH.
WE DID THAT.
NOTHIN' THERE? NAH.
WE KNOW 95% OF THE TIME THE DEALER'S JUST LOOKIN' TO BEAT THE CASE, BUT A GUY SETS UP HOW SZYMANSKI'S DOIN'? - HE'S MAKIN' HIMSELF WRONG.
- AND YOUR IDEA HE'S NOT.
- HMM.
- YOU MIND IF I TALK TO HIM? LISTENIN' TO HIM, YOU'RE THE GUY WHO PUT HIM IN THE BOX: TRANSFERRED HIM, PUT HIM WITH A BLACK COP.
SAYS HE WOULDN'T BE SURPRISED IF YOU KNEW THE DEALER.
- WHO'S THE DEALER? - SOME OLD HYPE NAMED CLIVE? - HE'S IN THE POKEY? - YEAH.
- SZYMANSKI'S IN THE POKEY.
- YEAH.
FEELIN' GOOD, LIEUTENANT? USE YOUR HEAD, SZYMANSKI.
YOU THINK I'D REACH OUT TO ALL THESE DIFFERENT PEOPLE JUST TO JAM YOU UP? SINCE THE NIGHT I STOPPED YOU FOR THAT TAILLIGHT, MY WORLD'S TURNED UPSIDE DOWN.
SO TODAY, WHEN I.
A.
B.
GRABS ME FOR WHACKIN' UP SOME DEALER'S BANKROLL WHEN I NEVER TOOK A CENT IN MY LIFE, I DON'T CHALK THAT UP TO BAD LUCK.
HAVE YOU CONTACTED YOUR DELEGATE? [ Chuckles ] OH, BOY.
THERE MUST BE A NAME FOR THIS.
STOP IMAGINING CONSPIRACY, SZYMANSKI, AND START SAVING YOUR JOB.
YOU MIND STEPPIN' OUT, LIEUTENANT? WATCH 'EM SCREW ME THROUGH THE WINDOW.
HE'S JUST ABOUT GONE PSYCHO.
HE DIDN'T STEAL THAT MONEY.
- YOU'RE SURE ON THAT? - DOES SOMETHIN' WRONG, HE HAS TO GIVE UP THINKIN' HOW UNFAIR LIFE'S TREATED HIM.
I DON'T KNOW IF I WANT TO BE TAKIN' THAT TO MY BOSSES WITHOUT SEARCHIN' HIS CAR.
- CAN I TALK TO THE OTHER COP? - WANNA COME WORK WITH US? [ Knocks ] YOU GIVE US A MINUTE? ARTHUR FANCY, - HI, LIEUTENANT.
LOUIS JONES.
- [ Fancy ] YOU HOLDIN' UP ALL RIGHT? KEEP TELLING MYSELF, I DIDN'T DO ANYTHING, I SHOULDN'T HAVE ANYTHING TO WORRY ABOUT.
YOU WANT TO RUN THE COLLAR FOR ME? WE'RE ON AVENUE "D" DRIVIN' TOWARD SECOND.
NARCOTICS HAS A CORNER UP TWO BLOCKS OVER.
WE WANNA PUSH THE SKELLS IN THAT DIRECTION.
SEES US COMIN', EVERYONE BOOKS EXCEPT THIS ONE SKEEVY DEALER.
YOU KNOW CLIVE'S LAST NAME? BELL.
SZYMANSKI TOOK THE GUY INTO A HALLWAY WHILE I SECURED THE VEHICLE.
I COME BACK, SZYMANSKI SHOWS ME THREE DECKS OF SMACK AND $11.
SO WE MOVE THE SKELL TO THE RADIO CAR.
HE STARTS YELLIN' HE WAS ROBBED.
HOW SOON DOES BELL REPEAT THE CHARGE IN THE HOUSE? UH, LIKE A HALF HOUR.
HOLDS OFF SAYIN' IT TILL SZYMANSKI WOULD'VE HAD TIME TO GET RID OF THE MONEY.
- YOU'RE SURE SZYMANSKI DIDN'T DO IT? - YOU THINK HE MIGHT HAVE? I DON'T.
NO.
BUT I'M NOT ABOUT TO PUT MY BADGE UP FOR A GUY WHO SAYS I'M IN ON A FRAME.
SZYMANSKI SAID THAT STRAIGHT OUT? HELL, YES.
WHEN THE RAT SQUAD SHOWED UP, SAID YOU WERE TOO.
PISSED YOU OFF ON A CAR STOP, HUH? CAR STOP HAD NOTHIN' TO DO WITH ANY OF THIS.
ONLY HAD THAT HAPPEN TO ME ABOUT 80 OR 90 TIMES.
WOULD YOU MIND TAKING YOUR GLASSES OFF? HEY, CHECK 'EM OUT, AND LET'S GO, OKAY? NOW, UH, YOU SURE YOU DON'T RECOGNIZE ANYBODY IN THESE ARRAYS, HUH? HE'S ASKIN' IF YOU RECOGNIZED ANYBODY.
[ Scoffs ] - YOU MADE THAT PERP, DIDN'T YA, HUH? YOU GUTLESS SCUMBAG.
- BOO GOT THE CAR? YOU KNOW, NATHAN, I DON'T REALLY THINK THIS WAS A GOOD-FAITH EFFORT HERE.
HEY, WHAT'S GOOD FAITH-- HIM DOIN' WHAT YOU WANT? THIS GUY ROBS OR HURTS MORE PEOPLE, IT'S ON YOU, DADDY KOOL.
NOT THAT YOU GIVE A RAT'S ASS.
LET'S GO, OKAY.
MANY AS HE TAKES OFF, 10 TIMES THAT YOU'LL BEAT AND MURDER.
AND EVERYONE OF 'EM WAS INNOCENT, HUH, BIG DADDY? NEVER LEAVE THAT OUT.
CATCH YOU ON THE STREET, I'LL CUT YOUR THROAT.
-HEY.
-CATCH ME ON THE STREET, YOU'RE GONNA WISH YOU NEVER WERE BORN.

[ Laughs ] YEAH, YEAH, YEAH.
THAT'S WHY I'M ON THE JOB, RIGHT? ENORMOUS FINANCIAL BENEFITS.
THAT WAS THE VICTIM OF THAT STREET STICKUP.
HE WASN'T GIVIN' NO COOPERATION.
WE'RE GONNA BE UP ALL NIGHT AGAIN.
[ Sighs ] AH, HUMP RAPPER.
HE MAKES THAT PERP, HE WON'T SAY, SO WE GET TO SIT HERE ALL NIGHT HOPIN' HE GETS IN HIS BUDDY'S CAR.
- YOU'RE SURE HE PICKED HIM? - THAT'S WHY I HAD HIM TAKE HIS GLASSES OFF.
IT WAS RIGHT IN HIS LYIN' EYES.
[ Sighs, Scoffs ] LOOK AT THESE IDIOTS.
-[ Simone ] HEY, WHAT ARE THEY DOING WRONG? -THEY OUGHTA BE ASLEEP IN BED.
[ Chuckles ] WHAT? [ Chuckling ] NOTHIN'.

BEHIND THAT COP ROBBIN' ME? NOW, HOW THEY GONNA PROSECUTE ME FOR A LITTLE BIT OF CONTRABAND? - HE ROBBED YOU, HUH? - $600.
OH, HEALTHY BANKROLL.
BUT IT WAS IN TRANSITION.
YOU KNOW, EVEN BACK IN THE DAY WHEN YOU WAS A COP ON THE BEAT, I FIGURED YOU TO BE A BROTHER WITH A FUTURE.
SO HOW COME YOU DIDN'T BOOK WHEN THE COPS CAME UP THE STREET? [ Chuckles ] MAN, I AIN'T BOOKED IN 10 YEARS.
ALL THIS, "FEET DON'T FAIL ME NOW.
" WELL, THEY FAILS ME ALL THE TIME.
WELL, KNOWIN' THAT LIKE YOU DO, CLIVE, IT'S HARD TO BELIEVE YOU DIDN'T HAVE A PLAN TO LOOK STRAIGHT.
- WHEN BREAKFAST? - WHY'D YOU TAKE THE COLLAR? - WHO YOU KNOW WANNA BE LOCKED DOWN? - WHAT, YOU OWE SOMEONE-- LOOKIN' TO ALIBI WHY YOU DIDN'T HAVE THAT MONEY, HUH? YOU GOT THE MIND OF A CRIMINAL, ARTHUR.
YOU'D BETTER GET OFF YOUR STORY, CLIVE.
THE BLACK COP WAS WATCHIN' THEIR CAR WHILE THE WHITE COP WAS ROUGHING ME OFF AND ROBBIN' ME FOR MY MONEY ROLL.
THESE TWO COPS, THEY'RE BACKIN' EACH OTHER UP.
THEY'RE SAYIN' THEY WERE NEVER APART.
NOW I.
A.
B.
's GONNA COME DOWN HARD ON YOU, CLIVE.
D.
A.
'LL ASK FOR 20 YEARS.
[ Scoffs ] MAN, IT WAS JUST A LITTLE POSSESSION FOR MY OWN USE.
THEY'RE SAYING FOR SALE, IN PROXIMITY TO A SCHOOL.
OH, MAN.
THAT'S-- [ Sputters ] TELL ME THE PLAY, CLIVE.
I'LL SEE IF I CAN HELP YOU.
[ Sighs ] MAN, MY MOUTH HURTS.
I GOT THESE SORES FROM MY UPPERS SLIDIN' UP AND DOWN, UP AND DOWN.
MY WOMAN, SHE BE CRITICIZIN' ME ALL THE TIME.
PLUS SHE SAY THEY BE CLICKIN'.
[ Clicks Teeth ] [ Scoffs ] AND YOU WERE HOLDIN' 600 FOR SOMEONE ELSE? A FELLA I DO SOME THINGS FOR.
SO YOU OWED YOUR SUPPLIER 600.
YOU WERE GONNA TELL HIM THE COP TOOK THAT WHEN HE COLLARED YOU, - AND THEN USE IT TO FIX YOUR TEETH? - [ Sighs ] [ Exhales ] HERE COME BREAKFAST.
CLIVE.
HMM? CLIVE.
MM-HMM? IF THEY PULL BACK TO SIMPLE POSSESSION, WILL YOU DROP THE COMPLAINT ON THE COP? [ Chuckles ] YOU'RE SO DEEP INTO KNOWIN' HUMAN NATURE, ARTHUR.
HOW COME THAT DON'T MAKE YOU USE DOPE? HMM.
[ Sighs ] ON THE GATE.
MORNIN'.
SO YOU DO KNOW CLIVE BELL.
I STARTED THINKIN' LAST NIGHT, I MIGHT'VE KNOWN HIM WHEN I WAS A COP.
CAME IN TO CHECK.
SAME GUY? YEAH.
I THINK HE WANTS TO WITHDRAW HIS COMPLAINT ON SZYMANSKI.
LIEUTENANT, I COME TO TAKE THIS GUY TO THE GRAND JURY.
YOU'RE IN HIS CELL WITHOUT PERMISSION OR EVEN NOTIFICATION.
I THINK HE'LL TELL YOU THE SAME STORY HE TOLD ME.
YEAH, 'CAUSE IF I PUT IT IN THE REPORT THAT HE WITHDREW IT TO YOU, THEN I GOTTA DO SOME EXPLAINING, AND THEN YOU DO.
SZYMANSKI STILL REFUSING COOPERATION? YEAH.
SZYMANSKI'S SCREWED ANYWAY-- PISS-POOR ATTITUDE.
WELL, I WANT YOU TO KNOW, I'M GONNA TALK TO HIM.
SOMETIME WHEN WE BOTH HAVE A FEW DAYS, I'D LOVE TO FIND OUT WHAT THE HELL THIS IS ABOUT.
TWO COLLARS HERE, JERMAINE, AND A WHOLE PILE OF EVIDENCE LOOKIN' YOU IN THE FACE.
LAWYER.
OH, THAT'S HOW YOU WANT TO TRAVEL, HUH? YOU WERE PICKED OUT BY THE VICTIM AND AN EYEWITNESS.
BALLISTICS MATCHED WITH YOUR GUN.
- AIN'T GOT YOUR LAB OPEN THIS EARLY.
- THAT'S A GOOD POINT.
ALL WE'RE SAYIN' HERE, JERMAINE, COOPERATE BEFORE THE EVIDENCE HAS YOU IN A CORNER.
- THAT'S WHEN WE GIVE IT THE WEIGHT.
- LAWYER.
CROW TAYLOR, HUH? - IS THAT "CROW" LIKE THE, UH, BIRD? - HEY, THAT'S IT.
ASK HIM QUESTIONS IN CHIRPS.
SO, UH, YOU BEEN RENTIN' YOUR CAR OUT FOR STICKUPS THERE, HUH, CROW? - [ Mumbles ] I DON'T KNOW.
- WE GOT YOUR VEHICLE'S GOT NO SIGNS OF BEIN' BROKEN INTO, HAS BEEN I.
D.
'd BY VICTIMS IN THREE SEPARATE INCIDENTS.
HMM.
HMM.
YOU KNOW, MAYBE SOMEBODY MADE DUPLICATES, OR-- PLUS-- PLUS I LOST A SPARE SET OF KEYS? SOMEBODY-- SOMEBODY MIGHT BE USIN' THAT.
WELL, THE ONLY PROBLEM THERE IS, YOUR MAN JERMAINE'S BEEN PICKED OUT FOR THE STICKUPS.
HE TOLD US THAT YOU RENTED HIM THE CAR FOR A HUNDRED AND FIFTY A NIGHT, AND YOU KNEW WHAT HE WAS USIN' IT FOR.
RIGHT? [ Slaps Table ] STICK WITH THE DUMB ACT, CROW, YOU WILL DO THE 15 JERMAINE DOES.
YOU EXPLAIN YOUR PART HERE, YOU'RE LOOKIN' AT 18 MONTHS.
NEVER PAID ME NO 150.
PAID A HUNDRED A NIGHT.
[ Knocks ] - WHAT DO YOU WANT? - WHY DON'T YOU COME IN AND SHUT THE DOOR.
I THINK THAT DEALER'S WITHDRAWING HIS ALLEGATION ABOUT YOU TAKING HIS MONEY.
THAT'S GOOD, 'CAUSE I DIDN'T TAKE IT.
YOU'RE WRONG IF YOU THINK THAT ENDS IT, SZYMANSKI.
NO.
I'M SURE YOU'VE GOT MORE STRINGS TO PULL.
I'LL JUST TRY TO KEEP LOOKIN' OVER BOTH SHOULDERS.
WELL, YOU MAY NOT BE DOING THAT ON THE JOB IF YOU DON'T GET STRAIGHT WITH I.
A.
B.
[ Scoffs ] THOSE CHARGES ARE WRONG, AND YOU JUST SAID THEY'RE DROPPED.
AND YOU REFUSED A STATEMENT.
FIFTH AMENDMENT'S ONLY FOR PERPS? YOU KNOW 15-A EXPOSES YOU TO DISCIPLINE.
I'M FINALLY GETTIN' WHAT THIS IS ABOUT.
YOU LOOK BAD TO I.
A.
B.
OFF HARASSIN' ME.
USE THIS LEVERAGE HERE TO MAKE ME TELL THEM WHAT A GREAT GUY YOU ARE.
AND YOU KNOW WHAT ELSE, SZYMANSKI? I HELPED KILL KENNEDY.
AND I HELPED KILL MARTIN LUTHER KING.
HEY.
HEY.
HEY.
LOOK, LOOK.
THAT WASN'T ABOUT RACE.
I'M TRYIN' TO GET YOU TO SEE-- IT'S ALL ABOUT RACE, LIEUTENANT.
THEN LET'S START THERE.
ADMIT PART OF WHY YOU BROKE BALLS AT THAT TRAFFIC STOP WAS 'CAUSE I'M BLACK, AND I'LL ADMIT THAT PART OF WHY I TRIED TO GET YOU TRANSFERRED TO A BLACK PRECINCT WAS 'CAUSE THAT PISSED ME OFF.
YOU MAKE IT SOUND LIKE THAT'S THE END OF WHAT YOU DID.
WELL, IT'S GOTTA END SOMEWHERE, SZYMANSKI.
NOW WHEN I GOT YOUR TRANSFER REROUTED TO THIS PRECINCT, I TOLD MYSELF, WE START WITH A CLEAN SLATE.
OH, IT WASN'T LIKE, "LET THIS SZYMANSKI SEE ME EVERY DAY AND KNOW HE'S UNDER MY THUMB.
" LOOK, I'M THE BOSS OF A DETECTIVE SQUAD, NOT UNIFORM COPS.
MAYBE WHAT YOU SAY HAS SOME TRUTH IN IT.
I DON'T UNDERSTAND EVERYTHING THAT'S IN MY HEART, BUT I PROMISE YOU, WHAT WENT DOWN WITH THAT DEALER, IT HAD NOTHIN' TO DO WITH HIM OR YOUR NEW PARTNER BEIN' BLACK.
AND IT HAD NOTHING TO DO WITH ME, EVEN THOUGH IT TURNS OUT I DID KNOW THAT DEALER A LONG TIME AGO.
IS THAT RIGHT? SZYMANSKI, MISTRUSTING EVERYONE, IT ONLY CUTSYOUOFF.
NOW I'M NOT PUTTING I.
A.
B.
UP AS GREAT PEOPLE TO TRUST, BUT THAT'S THE SITUATION YOU'RE IN.
YOU'RE INNOCENT.
TELL THEM THAT.
YOU WEREN'T WRONG ABOUT THAT CAR STOP.
NOT A HUNDRED PERCENT.
LET'S PUT THAT BEHIND US.
GUY'S BEEN ASKING FOR THE STATEMENTS, UH, SERGEANT MARTENS-- HE'S WHO I'D REACH OUT TO.
ALL RIGHT.
ALL RIGHT.
[ Sipowicz ] I BETTER NOT SAY NOTHIN' IN THERE.
UH-- YEAH, WELL, HANG BACK IF YOU WANT.
[ Yawns ] HALF-PUNCHY, ZERO TOLERANCE-- THEY'RE LIABLE TO ASK ME WHAT TIME IT IS, I'LL HIT 'EM WITH A BOARD.
[ Simone ] APPRECIATE YOU COMIN' BACK, ANTHONY.
NO, NO.
WE'RE HERE OFF YOU LYIN', SAYING YOU WASN'T CALLIN' HIS PROBATION UPSTATE.
MAN, YOU DUMB ENOUGH TO ACT SURPRISED.
[ Simone ] HEY, WE GOT A LEG UP ON MAKIN' THIS CASE.
THE ONLY WAY WE CAN PRESSURE THIS GUY IS OFF A VICTIM'S I.
D.
I'M SORRY, BUT THAT'S THE WAY IT LAYS OUT.
WE ARE GONNA DO OUR JOBS HERE.
- [ Switch Clicks ] - WHAT'S THAT ABOUT? OH, I'M DOIN' MY JOB-- PROVE HE COOPERATED.
I WANT YOU TO SAY HE'S LOOKIN' AT THEM PICTURES, AND THEN WE GETTIN' THE HELL OUTTA HERE.
SHOW ME THE PICTURES.
[ Laughs ] HANG ON A SECOND.
I WANT YOU TO REALIZE THAT DETECTIVE SIPOWICZ IS HANGIN' BACK ON THIS INTERVIEW, WHICH HE'S DOIN' AT HIS OWN REQUEST.
-TELL HIM TO SHOW ME THE PICTURES.
-DETECTIVE SIPOWICZ RECOGNIZES SOME ANTAGONISM BETWEEN HIM AND ANTHONY.
DON'T WANT IT TO IMPEDE GETTIN' THIS PERPETRATOR OFF THE STREET.
GAME.
WHAT HE SAID TO ME, ANTHONY-- "SAME HOW THIS KID HAD BAD EXPERIENCES-- "HIS UNCLE'S DEATH AND SO FORTH-- "I HAD SIMILAR EXPERIENCES GROWIN' UP: "BEAT UP IN THE PROJECTS, MY FATHER LOST HIS EYE.
"I DON'T WANT MY BAD EXPERIENCE-- IF THAT WOULD AFFECT ME UNINTENTIONALLY-- I WOULDN'T WANT THAT JEOPARDIZING IF THIS RAP STAR IS WILLING TO COOPERATE.
" TOLD YOU THAT, HUH? HMM.
EVERY ONE OF THESE STICKUP'S BEEN BLACK-ON-BLACK.
MEANING WHAT? [ Sighs ] WHATEVER THAT TUPAC SHAKUR, UH, "CONSPICUOUS" B.
I.
G.
DIFFICULTY WAS ABOUT, THIS ISN'T LIKE THAT.
ANTHONY, WE GOT A PUNK OUT THERE WITH A GUN ON THE STREET WHO'S TAKIN' HIS OWN PEOPLE OFF.
PLUS, THIS ONE-- RIGHT NOW, HIS OFFICER'S JUST BEEN NOTIFIED.
HE DON'T COOPERATE, HIS PROBATION GETS REVOKED, WHICH I DON'T SAY DIRECTLY, KNOWIN' THAT I-- I SHOULD STAY REMOVED.
WE ACKNOWLEDGE THAT ANTHONY IS COOPERATING.
WE BELIEVE THAT, GIVEN ANTHONY'S COOPERATION, HIS PROBATION SHOULD BE REDUCED TO TIME SERVED.
CHECK THE TAPE RECORDER WAS ON.
[ Switch Clicks ] SHOW ME THE PICTURES.
- NUMBER FOUR IN THE SECOND ARRAY.
- YEAH.
WE'D LIKE YOU TO TAKE A LOOK AT A LINEUP.
[ Chuckles ] [ Knocking ] YOU INDICATED YOU RECOGNIZE NUMBER THREE.
WHERE DO YOU RECOGNIZE NUMBER THREE FROM, ANTHONY? OUTSIDE THE IBEX.
ALL BUT NUMBER THREE CAN GO.
"K.
" YOU OUT OF A JOB? ABOUT FIVE TIMES A MONTH.
ANTHONY ABOUT SOMETHIN', WHATEVER YOUR CRACKER PARTNER MIGHT THINK.
SO'S MY CRACKER PARTNER.

NOT CAREFUL ENOUGH THAT HE DIDN'T HAVE DINNER WITH AN F.
B.
I.
AGENT.

SO, WHAT-- YOU THINK HE, UH, HAS YOU MADE? WE'D LIKE YOU TO RUN INTO HIM AGAIN.
SEE WHAT COMES OF THAT.
GET HIM TO TEST YOU WITH A SMALL FAVOR.
SEE HOW HE MOVES WHEN YOU DO IT.
WHAT'S A SMALL FAVOR-- WHEELMAN WHILE HE ROBS A BANK? IF YOU THINK HE'S GONNA ASK THAT FROM YOU FIRST, YOU'RE NOT THE SMART COP EVERYONE SAYS.
GOTTA TALK TO MY BOSS.
YOU MEAN DETECTIVE RUSSELL? [ Chuckles ] - [ Chuckles ] - WOULD YOU EXCUSE US? ABSOLUTELY.
UH, WHAT IT'S WORTH, YOUR CHIEF OF DETECTIVES THINKS IT'S A GREAT IDEA.

YOU KNOW, SOME WAYS I FEEL LIKE I'VE REALLY IMPOSED ON YOU WITH ALL THIS, GREG.
NOT AT ALL.
WHAT'S MORE MOMENTOUS THAN-- TH-THAN WANTING A CHILD? WELL, ANYWAY, IT'S A LITTLE LATE TO APOLOGIZE.
ABBY, I'LL BE HAPPY TO GIVE MY SPERM TO YOU AND KATHY.
UH, NATURALLY, I-- I HAVE SOME QUESTIONS, UH, ABOUT THE CONTEXT.
I-I-I MEAN, UH, I CERTAINLY, UH, AM AWARE THAT, UH, I-I-IT'S AN ARTIFICIAL PROCESS.

THIS GUY WAS ALREADY HALF AN ALI BABA.
HE WENT AWAY WHEN HE WAS, LIKE, 16.
I SAW HIM IN THIS FISTFIGHT ONCE.
I MEAN, JOEY WAS ALWAYS KINDA, LIKE, BUILT UP, YOU KNOW.
THERE WAS THIS KID, TIMMY FLYNN, WHO WAS THIN, BUT TOUGH KID.
THESE TWO GUYS, THEY'RE GOIN' AT IT FOR, LIKE, 10 MINUTES BEFORE THE GYM TEACHER COMES AND BREAKS IT UP.
[ Scoffs ] AND THAT WAS THE FIRST I SAW JOEY IN A FIGHT AND NOT WALK AWAY A WINNER.
SO THAT NIGHT, SOMEBODY CAVES TIMMY'S HEAD IN WITH A BALL BAT.
KILLED HIM? NO, HE LIVED FOR, LIKE, SIX MONTHS.
[ Quietly ] OH.
COULDN'T-- COULDN'T TALK.
THEY, UH-- [ Chuckles ] THEY USED TO SIT HIM IN THE PARK IN HIS WHEELCHAIR.
HALF THE DAYS HE'D HAVE SEIZURES.
JOEY, HE WOULD, UH, ALWAYS, YOU KNOW, CROUCH NEXT TO HIM, ASK HIM, "HOW YA DOIN'?" HE'S A REAL BAD GUY.
THAT'S A TOUGH GUY TO WORK.
HEY, IF I DO HIM SOME SMALL SOLID, THEY JUST WANNA SEE HOW HE'S GONNA PICK UP.
COME HERE.
WHAT WAS IT THAT WE WERE DOIN' THERE IN THE BATHROOM? IF YOU DON'T WANT TO DO IT, BOBBY, DON'T DO IT.
OH, BABY, THERE'S NOTHIN' I WANNA DO MORE.
