You wanna write this up? I have a call to make.

Right over there, tiger.
Have a seat.
Sit down.

What you got, captain? Your partner signed this without putting the time in there.
It's love, captain.
Pinches the capillaries.
Memory goes first.
I'll fill it in.
- Here you go, cap.
- Thank you.
Good night, captain.
Hutch.
What happened to you? You said you'd be here two hours ago.
I'm sorry.
I meant to call you and tell you I'd be late.
Starsky and I got busy, and I just forgot.
I know.
It's just that being alone here I get scared, Hutch.
- You didn't tell anyone, did you? - Of course not.
Not even Starsky? Jeanie, if I said I haven't told anybody, I haven't told anybody.
I miss you, Hutch.
I'll be so happy when you get here.
As soon as I get changed and cleaned up then we can - I'll tell you when I get there.
- All right, but hurry, okay? Good night, captain.
See you slaves in a few days.
Hey, partner.
Buy another candy bar.
Good night.
Love It's gonna put him in the poorhouse.
- Buy you a candy bar, captain? - Suppose you just finish that report? Take him out the back.
I'll follow you.
Hutch? No.
No, you have the wrong number.
Hutch, Hutch, where are you? - Where is she, Hutchinson? - I'm Starsky.
- I don't know what you're talking about.
- Don't be stupid, Hutchinson.
She's only a broad.
Tell us where she is, you'll wake up tomorrow morning like nothing happened.
I don't know what you're talking about.
Do it, Tom.
How's it going? Nobody saw us take him.
We've got his car outside in the garage but he's not gonna tell us anything.
Just because he's a cop, he's different? He's gonna tell us where she is.
Ben, why don't Why don't you just forget it.
You can get any dame you want.
Jeanie is special, Monk.
She belongs to me.
- You understand that? - Yes, sir.
But we snatched a cop.
- That ain't smart.
- Monk he's the only one who can tell us where she is.
Hello, Mr.
Forest.
Out cold.
He's a tough monkey.
Look, he hasn't seen any of us.
He doesn't know anything.
Why don't we just dump him and forget it.
No, we don't dump him, we don't forget it.
We juice him.
OD? Monk, how come you're always wrong? We don't overdose him.
We string him out.
We get him hung up on horse.
Pretty soon he's gonna beg us to tell us where she is.
- That's gonna take a while.
- So it takes time.
Plenty more where that stuff came from.
Go on, get started.
You got one more chance.
Where is she? Stuff it.
There you go, cop.
The first mile on a long, long trip.
- Starsky? - Morning, captain.
Get in here! It's the middle of the afternoon.
Where's your partner? - He had days off, captain.
- His days off ended this morning.
Suppose you stop covering for him get on the horn and tell him to get his rear end in here.
- Truth is, captain, he's sick.
- He didn't report in sick.
- Well, you know how it is.
He's in love.
- What you mean is, he's shacked up.
Yeah, well, she is a pretty girl, captain.
Tell him I want him in here in one hour and ready for duty.
You tell him that.
- There's only one problem.
- What's that? I don't know where he is to tell him that.
You crazy creeps.
I'm not I'm not gonna tell you anything.
Another day of this, he'll have a regular ladder.
I can't find a vein.
There.
Look at him.
He took to that stuff like a baby to a bottle.
Hey, come on, baby.
Gonna tell us where the little mommy is, huh? When he doesn't get it is when he'll talk.
I figure another day of this No, I haven't seen him.
What's the problem? He was due back on duty this morning.
He didn't show.
I figure he's just stretching his time off.
Yeah, you know Hutch.
It must be some foxy lady.
Yeah.
Well, I checked her apartment.
She hasn't been there for over a week.
- Checked whose apartment? - Jeanie Waldon.
You know her.
Do I know her? Hutch brings her in here about two months ago and cons me into putting her on.
Yeah, she was good too and then one night she and Hutch took off out the back way right in the middle of heavy trade.
"Goodbye, Huggy.
" That's all she said, and they're both gone.
Biff, bam, thank you, ma'am.
Looked like she'd seen a ghost or something.
That chick was pretty uptight that night.
You hear from her, let me know, okay? Sure.
Hey, do me a favour? When you see Hutch, you tell him that he owes me one good waitress.
Yeah.
- I tell you, he's gone.
- No, he isn't.
He's off on a date with a beautiful girl, to use your words.
- Captain, you don't understand.
- What do you mean? I found his gun in his apartment.
Do you take your gun out with you when you go on a date? Hutch wouldn't visit his mom without it.
All right, Starsky, settle down.
- What do you think happened? - I don't know.
- What do you know about that girl? - Her name, where she lives.
- And? - I can't find her either.
Well, what do you want to do about it? - Missing persons? - That's a missing officer.
No, I mean missing partner.

He was making the streets, looking for Hutch.
Since then I tell you if Starsky found him, he could be anywheres.
Maybe in a hospital even a police station.
- No, no.
Starsky would never let anybody know that his partner's strung-out.
He's probably helping him kick it someplace and it's a cinch he knows somebody's looking for Hutch.
And Starsky's looking for us.
So I tell you what we're gonna do.
We're gonna help him.
How? I want you to noise it around on the street that you know who strung his partner out.
- Are you crazy, Monk? - No, listen to me.
I know what I'm doing.
- I want you to get ahold of - Mickey? Mickey, yeah.
That street stoolie.
- He'd sell his old lady for 10 bucks.
- Okay.
And maybe Just maybe, we ice both Starsky and Hutch and Mr.
Forest will give us a Christmas bonus.
Starsky.
Captain Dobey, please.
- Captain Dobey.
- Morning.
Well, I think the patient's gonna survive.
Well, Starsky, that's good.
Maybe I ought to recommend you for a transfer to Rescue.
Yeah.
Well, it's gonna be another 24 hours.
He's weak as a kitten right now.
Look, captain I need a DMV read on licence JNJ322.
It belongs to some fink who came around asking about Hutch.
I had it last night, but I didn't want to talk to anybody except you.
You want me to have an officer run that down? No, thanks.
I just want to find out who owns it.
Captain it's important, but it's mine.
I'm gonna put you on hold.
