The Rookie (2018) s02e13 Episode Script

Follow-Up Day

[ Elevator bell dings ]
Grace: John.
How are you?
I was just, um --
I haven't seen you.
Yeah, I know.
I just was
swamped with work
and, uh, the kitchen
How was your vacation
with Oliver?
You know, we went to Utah,
we hit all
the state parks.
Oh, it's so beautiful
up there.
I mean, stunning.
I've been thinking
about you.
Eh, would you be interested
in coming over
and helping me test out
the new kitchen?
You want me to
cook for you?
[ Both chuckle ]
I would cook.
I wouldn't say no
to a-a co-pilot.
My use of vegetables
has been described
as a crime
against humanity.
Kids can be so cruel.
I mean, I'd love to.
[ Elevator bell dings ]
Why are you holding
a towel?
Nurse Lisa:
40-year-old male,
traumatic amputation
of right hand
in construction accident.
BP 100/70, heart rate 110.
Get him into Trauma Two,
page Ortho, and order an x-ray.
Start an IV with
two liters of saline.
John, is that the
Yeah, that's his.
[ Exhales sharply ]
Hey, um, what time?
Uh, 7:00?
It's a date.
Hey! ♪
Whoa, oh oh, oh oh-oh,
whoa, oh oh ♪
I'm gonna win for you ♪
[ Elevator bell dings ]
Like I know
you want me to do ♪
Hey! ♪
So, what are you
gonna cook her?
Couple of big-ass steaks
and a lovely baked potato.
You know we're in L.A.?
She's at least
a pescatarian.
And she definitely
doesn't eat carbs.
So, no potato?
Your safest bet
is a kale salad with
a nice piece of salmon.
Man, food used to be
so easy.
There was only two kinds --
fried and other.
Okay, Grandpa.
Harper: Nolan.
There's a lawyer looking
for you at the front desk.
What'd you do?
[ Man coughs ]
Are you John Nolan?
That depends on --
Are you here to
serve me with a subpoena?
No. I'm a trust and estates
lawyer. Susan Banker.
I'm here to inform you
about what your father
left you in his will.
What -- Wait.
My father's dead?
I'm sorry.
Did no one tell you that?
I haven't spoken to
my father in 35 years.
He left me something
in his will?
Was it a lot of something?
$14 and his 1971 Chevelle.
You're kidding.
There's the check.
The car will be
delivered later today.
And what if I don't
want the car?
Then get rid of it.
Just sign the bottom
[ Pen clicks ]
confirming your
receipt of the check.
Eh, how did he die?
Heart attack.
Or drowning.
He was in the pool at his house
in Tempe when it hit.
I'm sorry.
[ Laughter ]
What's going on?
We're celebrating Smitty's
last day as Mr. Irrelevant.
The sergeants exam happens
once every two years.
Whoever scores the lowest
gets called Mr. Irrelevant
'cause they got no chance
at getting promoted.
So, if this is Smitty's
swan song,
that means the new scores
are gonna be posted soon.
That's exciting.
You're gonna do great.
No doubt.
You alright?
My dad died.
I'm so sorry.
Are -- Are you okay?
I honestly
never knew the man.
It's just a little
Well, if you need anything --
Nah. I'm fine.
I'm good. Thank you.
Alright. Party's over.
[ Clears throat ]
So, Officer Smitty --
these past two years,
you have handled
your irrelevance
with the poise and dignity
I expect
from a man of --
of little ambition.
[ Laughter ]
Thank you, sir.
To business.
Today is Follow-Up Day.
Detectives have several cases
that are on the edge
of being back-burnered.
You're gonna take the day
to see if you can breathe
new life into them.
So, Bradford and Chen,
you have a three-day-old
home invasion.
The victim is a former
gang member, Nevin Cooper.
No forensics, no suspects.
We're on it, sir.
Lopez and West,
you're going to Hancock Park.
A statue was stolen from
a homeowner's front yard.
It looks like
a giant turd.
[ Chuckles ]
Well, that "turd" is worth
a half a million,
so track it down.
Yes, sir.
Which brings me to
Harper and Nolan.
Actually, sir,
Robbery Homicide requested
that Officer Nolan and I
follow up on one of their cases.
And how much did you pay
for them to request that?
That's a very cynical
question, sir.
Seems fair to me.
What do you think,
Officer Nolan?
On it.
Yes, sir.
[ Laughter ]
Harper: Hey, you sure
you're alright?
There's no shame in
taking a personal day.
Yeah, I know.
Uh, just seemed so disingenuous,
you know?
Last time I saw my dad,
I was ten.
He was driving away
in that Chevelle.
The car he left me.
Sounds like the plot of
a bad first novel.
No offense.
No. No, you're not wrong.
Hey, listen.
[ Sighs ]
It's one thing to lose focus
during roll call,
but out here, you get
distracted, you get killed.
So I need you sharp.
I am.
I will be.
[ Bell dings ]
We're closed.
Nolan: Police.
Uh, we're following up
for Detective Calderon.
We're just checking in to see if
you've thought of anything new
that might help us
catch the guy
who robbed you
and killed your wife.
No. He came inside
and hit me right away.
I couldn't do anything
to stop him.
To save her.
Sir, we're very sorry
for your loss.
You told detectives the man
was wearing a mask?
And he took several
hundred dollars
from the register
and a case of whiskey?
Well, another thing.
I didn't notice it
until this morning
when I started to clean,
but there was a new roll
of scratchers
under the counter.
They're not there now.
He must have taken them.
lottery tickets?
Umlike these.
High value.
500 tickets a roll.
Did you report those
as stolen?
An hour ago.
That's how we're gonna
catch this guy.
Uh, sir, the lottery office
will flag
all the serial numbers
and cancel the tickets.
If he tries to redeem a winner,
it'll get flagged.
I hope you catch him.
And I hope he gives you
a good reason to kill him.
We will keep you posted.
Uh, if anything else occurs
to you, just give us a call.
Why did you stop me?
It is not our job
to police his grief.
[ Horn honks ]
[ Bell dings in distance ]
[ Indistinct conversations ]
[ Clears throat ]
Good morning, officers.
What can I get you?
We're looking for
Nevin Cooper.
Oh. He's a little
busy right now.
Can I help you
with something?
[ Objects crash in distance ]
Hey, everything okay?
It's just some confusion
in our order.
Sorry for
the misunderstanding.
Marquel, right?
I know you?
I'm the guy who put
Keon in Pelican Bay.
Heard you filled the void.
Ah, what can I say?
"Some are born great,
some achieve greatness,
and some have greatness
thrust upon them."
Lucy: Shakespeare.
"Twelfth Night."
Smart for a cop.
I read you weren't running
with these guys anymore, Nevin.
Found a different path
in prison.
Bitch binge-watched
too much British baking.
Got himself rehabilitated.
Lucy: It's not every day
that you see a gang
be so forgiving to someone
who's left the flock.
That's inspiring.
Unless you're here
to sweat him.
You guys wouldn't happen
to know
who broke into Nevin's house a
couple nights ago, tied him up?
I sure don't.
But I tell you what,
I hear anything,
you will be my first call.
I'll see you around,
You alright?
Got a lot of work to do
and it's tight in here,
so Sasha'll give you
some donuts on your way out.
I know you're scared,
but we can help.
I'm not scared. I'm busy.
I got things handled.
Okay, so why call the cops
if you got it handled?
I didn't.
Let me guess.
Sasha did.
Before you could
tell her not to?
I appreciate
what you're trying to do --
turn your life around.
I know it isn't easy.
It is what it is, man.
You can't handle Marquel
and his crew on your own.
I don't know what
you're talking about.
They just came to
buy some pastries.
Now I gotta get
back to work.
Sure. You change your mind,
you know where to find us.
[ Birds chirping,
sprinklers whirring ]
Looks like that's
where the statue was.
You're gonna make
a great detective.
[ Door opens ]
Why haven't you guys
found my statue yet?
That's why we're here, sir --
to see if you have
any new information.
If I have any
new information?
This is your job.
I've been calling you
every day.
Yes, sir, we're aware.
That's why we're here.
Did they find it?
Ma'am, I read over
the initial police report.
What exactly did you mean
when you said
that whoever took it
should get a reward?
What the hell?
I did not say that.
Did I?
Mrs. Nithercott,
did you have anything to do
with the disappearance
of the statue?
Of course not.
No, uh, just I'm not as sad
as Roger is that it's gone.
What are you saying?
I thought you loved that piece.
It looks like a dinosaur copped
a squat on our front yard.
I bought it because it
reminded me of our honeymoon.
Lopez: How does that remind you
of your honeymoon?
Maybe I don't want to know.
Martha: Look, you wanna
find the thief?
Talk to the members of
the homeowners association.
They hated that thing
as much as I did.
[ Scoffs ]
You ever play the lottery?
Only when the jackpot
goes to a billion. You?
Every week for 20 years
when I lived back in Foxburg.
Buy a ticket at
the gas station
on the way home
on a Friday night,
spend the time it took me
to fill my tank
just fantasizing
what I would do with the money.
Mostly I would just think
about what life would be like
if I never had to worry
about money again.
Oh, yeah.
That would be nice.
I can barely see the edge
of the hole I'm in.
Dispatch: 7-Adam-15,
give the bridge a call.
[ Radio clicks,
cellphone clicks ]
Yeah, this is Officer Nolan.
I was asked to call.
Thank you.
[ Cellphone clicks ]
My inheritance
has arrived.
Nice car.
It's a classic.
Yeah. It has a matching
350 four-barrel
with an original turbo trans.
You drive it all the way
in from Arizona?
No. No, I, uh -- I actually
drove it to New York
and then I got
on a cargo ship
and then we went
through the Panama Canal.
No need to be
an ass about it.
What do you think
I could get for it?
I don't know, man.
W-What, you want to sell it?
I don't know. The guy who
left it to me was bad news.
Real piece of crap.
Harper: Hey!
Don't talk about my dad!
Hands behind your back!
[ Handcuffs click ]
Your dad?
That would make him --
My brother.
Wait. Just wait.
Just -- Just stop.
What is your name?
Pete. Nolan.
And your father was?
He had a beer belly,
he had blue eyes,
a Marine Corps tattoo.
I don't know, he liked to take
his teeth out at parties.
He was quite a character!
You got me on that last one.
He was 35 when he abandoned
my mom and me.
Alright, what do you
want to do here?
[ Sighs ]
Take off the cuffs.
You're gonna let me go?
Are you sure?
'Cause the last cop I punched
was not that cool
about it.
How many cops
have you punched?
Like, today,
or, like, ever?
[ Handcuffs click ]
I'm kidding. One.
I've punched five cops.
Lookbefore today, I didn't
even know I had a brother.
Half-brother, alright?
And I was just as surprised
when the chick read the will
and said that you
were getting the car.
I don't know
why he did that.
Yeah. I don't know
why he did that, either.
Now, if I'm free to go,
uh, I'm gonna go.
Back to Arizona, alright?
Umlook, this has all
been a bit of a shock,
but if you'd like towait
around till after my shift,
I don't know,
maybe we could --
Hang out
and get to know each other
and become best friends?
No. I'll pass.
Enjoy the car.
Nice meeting you.
[ Door thumps ]
It's a push.
So, how does it work?
The sergeants exam?
Do you get the stripe
right away?
No. Passing the test
is the first step.
You only get promoted
when a spot opens up.
You're at the top of the list,
might take a month or two.
The lower you are,
the longer it's gonna take.
And for some,
they'll never get a shot.
Be taking the test
again in two years.
Hey. Your home invasion
victim was just assaulted.
He's on his way to the ER.
We just saw him.
Yeah, Marquel must have
doubled back after we left.
Is he hurt bad?
Fractured right arm,
bruised ribs,
couple of loose teeth.
He's gonna be in pain
for a few weeks.
Do you guys
know who did it?
Yeah, but we can't
do anything about it
unless Nevin makes
an official ID.
Which he's not
going to do.
[ Cellphone clicking ]
But maybe
his girlfriend will.
Good luck.
Tim: How is he?
He's tough.
Didn't want me to call 911,
even though the bone
was sticking out.
I'm sorry.
That sounds upsetting.
He's trying so hard to make up
for the things he did.
Why can't they just
leave him alone?
Because they're predators.
But we can help.
How? He's here because you
came around this morning.
Marquel had to make sure that
Nevin wasn't snitching.
Snitching about what?
[ Scoffs ] No way.
Sasha, you walk away,
he ends up back
in prison or dead.
Look, without us,
Nevin either gives in,
gives Marquel
what he wants,
or he doesn't
and Marquel kills him.
We're his only hope
at a different outcome.
You promise
you can protect him?
I'd be lying
if I said yes,
but he's got no chance
without us.
Marquel wants Nevin
to launder drug money
through the bakery.
Said he had 24 hours
to decide.
Now you know.
[ Footsteps departing ]
[ Door closes ]
So, what's the play?
Arrest Marquel for assault?
No. We do that,
and Marquel's guys will
kill Sasha and Nevin.
Then what?
I don't know.
Lopez: Neighbor says
she didn't witness the theft,
but, quote, "That statue
was the real crime."
And the woman I talked to
said that she wished
she had the balls to steal
that thing years ago,
and whoever took it
should have a statue
erected in their honor.
Alright. One more house
and I'm calling it.
There's a car
in the driveway.
We just have a few
questions for you.
I guess we can
follow up tomorrow.
Man: Help!
Did you hear that?
Hear what?
[ Gate creaks ]
Man: Help!
[ Grunts ]
[ Breathing heavily ]
Oh, God.
Oh! God!
Think how I feel.
I've been lying in it.
I have a brother.
My father is dead,
and I have a brother.
Yeah, we've been through
all of this at some length.
I mean, yesterday,
I didn't have a brother,
and today,
I have a brother.
That is a serious shift
in the universe.
Is it? Look, I mean,
real siblings are people
that you share
your childhood with.
That guy
shares some DNA.
Doesn't make him
your brother.
Smitty: Got your suspect
in interrogation.
Northeast Division caught her
trying to cash in
one of the stolen scratchers
at a 7-Eleven in Los Feliz.
Smitty, our killer
is a six foot,
200-pound male.
Well, she's none
of those things.
I didn't know the scratcher
was stolen, okay?
I swear.
Where'd you get
the ticket?
And work is?
The Red Angel.
Strip club.
You know, I've had some
pretty pathetic tips before,
but this is the first one
that's landed me in jail.
You're not under arrest.
We just need the name of the guy
who gave you the ticket.
I don't know. From the stage,
it's just a sea of losers.
No offense.
None taken.
I don't really
frequent those.
I mean, I've been.
I just don't make a habit of --
Does the club
have cameras?
Not officially.
That's a yes.
I'll call the club and
get the footage sent over,
and then you and Chastity
can go through every frame
and find the guy
that tipped her the ticket.
As in she'll be watching me
as I watch her --
As in
you're solving a murder.
Stealing that statue
was a public service.
That almost
got you killed.
Still worth it.
Angela. Excuse me.
Is this your station?
What a funny
little world.
Who's that?
Wesley's mom.

What's she in for?

her car during a traffic stop.

It's -- I-I have a date.
It's not for a few hours.
Oh, good for you.
Dating is challenging,
especially towards
the beginning.
Well, this is, uh, an old
girlfriend, actually.
Making what's old

Seem a little
nervous, though.
Well, when -- when we

Yes, you did.

Well, if you ever wanna
come by the club,
I'll give you
a free lap dance.
Oh, thanks.
That's very sweet.
We should probably just keep
this professional, though.
Hey, man.
Hey, I, uh --
I just want to say
sorry for earlier.
I-I know things got a little
out of hand, you know?
It's pretty normal
for me, but, uh,
I know you don't know me
that well, so --
You were going through

It's -- It's L.A. sushi.

I won't.

Stay out of trouble.

Did she say where

Yeah, but it's privileged.
I can't tell you.
Well, she's got to

Tim: So, what do I do?
The smart thing would be to get
Nevin to launder the money.
Use him as a CI to roll up

Um, Nevin's trying
to go straight.
We'd be destroying that.
Yes, in order to put some
pretty bad people behind bars.
Look, it's a tough call,
you're gonna have to get used to
making those as a sergeant.
The scores are in?
The list just arrived.
You're number 8
out of 140.
Yes! I knew it.
Sergeant Bradford.
Not a sergeant yet.
At eight on the list,
it'll probably take
six months or so.
Actually, there's a position
opening in North Hollywood.
The captain there
owes me a big favor.
If you want,
I can make it happen.

exactly what I'm thinking.
Is that even possible?

I'm gonna give it a try.
When we were together

It was so good.

No. I mean,

Someone just stole
my inheritance.
Shouldn't you call it in
or something?
Pretty sure I know
who did it.
Yeah, I've been
here all night.
What a completely natural way
to answer a door.
Oh. Hey, John.
Hi, Chastity.
You know her?
Yeah. Long story.
Chastity, have you been
with Pete all night?
Did you at any
point in time
witness him
stealing a car?
Oh, yeah.
I for sure saw
him do that.
I don't lie to a cop
for a guy
until at least
the third date.
Why don't you and I
go for a walk?
Okay. Yeah.
Thank you.
So, you gonna
arrest me now?
We have to talk.
What? There's nothing
to talk about.
Our dad is dead,
and I don't know what
to do with that,
and I got a feeling
you don't either,
but maybe together,
we could
figure something out.
Alright, maybe that
could help, you know?
My head is spinning
around right now.
And if you're anything like me,
you've got to be wondering,
why would he leave
this car to me?
Yeah, I mean, you know
we did work on it every day
after school, you know?
He would save up money
and try and get all the parts,
slowly build it up.
I mean, it took four years
to build the whole car
and then two to get it
to look like this.
At least you had those moments
with him, you know?
It's more than I got.
I'm sorry about that.
I, um
I think maybe he was
a little over-the-top
and overcompensated with me
because of how
he bolted out on you.
It wasn't all good,
though, you know?
Like, he came to my games,
but, like, he drank a lot,
and by the seventh inning,
he was, like, trashed
and embarrassed me
in front of my friends.
You know?
Doesn't sound very fun.
He gave me my first beer
when I was 13
and then my first joint
when I was 15.
So, I turned out great.
I grew up thinking
I did something wrong.
You know, if he loved me,
he wouldn't have left, right?
I'd stay up late at night,
listening to my mom
cry herself to sleep,
coming up with crazy plans
how I was gonna
track him down
and I guess win him back?
But now I'm thinking
I dodged a bullet.
You dodged a huge bullet.
Still love him, though.
Is that weird?
No, that's not weird.
It's human.
You know what?
You should have the car.
Yeah, man,
it's what he wants.
We should honor it, right?
Are you sure about this?
Plus, I know I'm nuts
and everything,
but I'll figure it out.
You know, maybe me
giving you this
is, uhmy closure,
or whatever they call it.
I don't know if it's
what Dad intended,
but by leaving me the car,
he actually connected me
to you,
so --
[ Chuckles ]
Stay in touch, Pete.
Just come -- come visit.
You can make sure
she's running right.
I have something for you.
Come on. I
Come on.

Oh, you really
don't have to --
Hey, man.
It's our dad.
You deserve to have half, right?
Look at that.
He's a chunky guy.
Get a lot of that.
Got some more beer.
Oh, that's right.
Hey, do you, uh -- do you wanna
come in for a-a nightcap?
I'm gonna braid her hair

Very sweet.
We really do have to go.
I have to be at

-Cool, cool.
Okay, well, it was

Harper, Nolan.
Rampart picked up
that scratch-off guy
from the strip club video.
Tucker Novak?
Is that the guy
you put a BOLO out on?
Yes, sir.
Then, yes.
He's in Cell 3.
I'm innocent.
Harper: Of what?
Of whatever y'all
about to accuse me of.
You went to the Red Angel
strip club two nights ago.
Can I have that?
Nolan: No.
You stole those tickets
from the liquor store on Pico,
and then you killed
the owner.
Whoa! I had nothing
to do with that.
And I sure as hell
didn't kill anybody.
Then who did?
I want diplomatic immunity.
Yeah, see, my father --
he was born in Spain,
and they're members of NATO
I think.
So -- Yeah.
I want diplomatic immunity.
You got it.
Wait. Really?
Spanish father
means you are solid.
Alright, check this out.
My boy Colt gave me
a call the other day,
said he needed help scratching
off 500 lottery tickets.
But, hey, he didn't mention
no murdered woman.
And he just let you
keep the winners?
I mean, only the small ones,
like I gave that stripper.
No, he kept the big one.
The big Kahuna, worth 250 grand.
And where can
we find Colt?
I don't know.
He told his roommates
he was moving out
once he scratched off
the big winner,
and last I heard of him,
he was still trying
to cash in the ticket.
Lottery doesn't pay out
prizes that size at
convenience stores.
Either you have to mail it in
or go up to Sacramento.
I'll call Sacramento PD, have
them sit on the lottery office.
Uh, what about me?
Uh, you're under arrest for
accessory after the fact.
But what about my immunity?
So, bad news.
Patrice: Wesley.
[ Door closes ]
You'll never believe --
I met the most fascinating
people in here last night.
Lawrence, give us a minute.
Well, we're discussing
my legal strategy, dear.
He does DUIs for rich kids,
which is why you spent
the night in jail.
This is a criminal matter.
You need a criminal lawyer.
Okay, thanks, Lawrence.

[ Sighs ]
I know why you want
to protect Christian,

I ran a background search.
He's been to prison
for armed robbery,
and the gun he gave you --
he used it in a crime
after he got out.
He shot someone.
They almost died.
God, I had no idea.
He took advantage of you,
but you will be charged
in his crime

go arrest him.

There's nothing we can do
about that now,

what happens next.
My whole life,
I never won anything.
But I got that big ticket now,

It's worthless, Colt.
Just like the one
you tried to cash in
across the street.
They were all cancelled
the moment they were
reported stolen.
This is -- It's not fair.
I never won anything
in my life.

But I won that.
You -- You can't take
that away from me.

So, turn around

Right now.

gonna be murdering a child?
The world doesn't
owe you anything, Colt.
Not a winning lottery ticket,
not a happy childhood.
