Hey, you grab dinner yet? No.
Let's swing by Luigi's.
Didn't you hear? The old man shut the doors.
He moved to Tampa.
Oh, damn.

Luigi's was an institution.
Well, I figured he should get out of the 'hood while he was still alive.
Which is more than I can say for you.
Hey, these are my streets.
Somebody's gotta watch over 'em.
Unit 12, we have a 927 Denver on Carlton and Third.

We're on it.
Just another day at the office.
You stupid ho.
You think you could up and leave me? Huh? You think I'd just let you walk away from me? Look at you! Oh, yeah.
But you take what I give you, and you throw it away.
Now, how does that make me feel? Some dumb-ass runaway And I took you molded you, made you into a goddess.
And you throw it all away to become what? Nothing.
'Cause that's all you are right now nothing.
Rigo, Rigo, please.
Please what? Don't hurt me.
You betray my love, try to deny my power.
No, I didn't You disrespected me! And now It's time to pay.
No, no! Drop the knife! Well, well, what have we here? I said put the knife down now/ Ha ha ha.
Will you look at him shine? That's the light gleamin' off his armor.
Looks like your very own Sir Galahad's come to rescue your sorry little ass.
This is your last warning.
You heard him.
No need for anyone to get hurt.
Hurt? You can't hurt me.
Tell him why.
Please Because I am the power and the glory the darkness and the light.
Judge, jury and executioner.
- Aah! Aah! - Yaah! No! This is unit 12 Shots fired.
Suspect down.
Request back-up, ambulance Repeat: Suspect down, Third and Carlton.
You OK? Yeah.
Why wouldn't I be? Just another scumbag off the streets.
Hey, Dirty Harry, you just took a life.
Stop pretending it doesn't make your guts turn.
Nah, I'm not pretending anything, Angie.
I mean I'm just doin' my job.
Hello? Hello? Nice shootin', Galahad.
Who is this? Oh, you're lookin' at me.
You didn't think it'd be that easy, did you? Hello.
Hello?! It's not over.
Eric Boggs, policeman.
These are his streets, his people.
He sees himself as their guardian angel but Eric's sense of duty and his sanity are about to be tested by a most uncommon criminal in the Twilight Zone.
You're traveling to another dimension a dimension not only of sight and sound but of mind A journey into a wondrous land whose boundaries are only that of the imagination.
You're entering You sure you don't want us to take you home? You're lookin' at it.
You gonna be OK? Yeah.
Don't worry about me.
Anything's better than working for Rigo.
Take care, Galahad.
Feel like getting caffeinated? Yeah.
Gimme a minute.
All right.
Hey, Carla.
Look, um, officer I just have one question.
Was there anyone else in the alley with you and Rigo? Like who? One of Rigo's posse members, maybe.
Rigo had no posse.
He didn't trust his ladies.
He didn't trust nobody.
Why are you asking? Never mind.
Just a prank call, I guess.
You don't remember me, do you? I'm Hector Arroyo's sister.
I thought it was you.
You know Hector's in San Quentin? Yeah, I heard.
It doesn't have to be that way, though, you know? Look, um, don't let that Sir Galahad thing go to your head.
I don't need any more rescuing.
Hey, it doesn't hurt to have someone lookin' out for you.
If I didn't have my uncle, I'd probably be in the cell right next to your brother Hector.
Well, I don't have no uncle.
If you need to talk.
You be safe out here, OK? I said put the knife down now/ This is your last warning.
Yaah! This is Boggs.
Hello? Hello? Good-bye.
What's up, Galahad? The ho was mine.
Who the hell are you? She's a keeper.
A real money-machine.
Whoever this is She's mine! And this time I'm gonna finish what I started! This the guy? Officer? You with me? It's him.
Rodrigo Valentine.
I just keep expectin' him to sit up.
hasn't happened yet.
I'll be right back.
What are you doin' here? Johnson told me where you were.
So, the real question Is what are we doin' here? I was just checkin' somethin' out.
Go on.
This should be interesting.
You're never gonna believe who's been callin' me up.
The hooker? No, her pimp.
How many pimps that girl have? Well, as far as I know, she only had one.
You mean this guy this guy right here the one with the gaping hole in his chest? I know it sounds crazy but but he said he was comin' back for Carla.
Oh, man, that doesn't sound crazy.
That /s crazy.
Well, Johnson's tracin' the calls but I'm tellin' you I know what I heard.
Look, Boggs, takin' a life is a big deal.
It will eat away at you until you talk to someone.
You think this is all in my head? I've seen this crap before.
You're feelin' guilty for killin' this creep and this is your subconscious tryin' to find a way to deal with it.
Nah, I checked this guy's files.
This man was into all sorts of twisted stuff satanic rituals, the black arts.
Doesn't make him any less dead.
You're right.
You're absolutely right.
Except for one thing.
And what's that? My phone won't stop ringin'.
Gimme that.
Hello? Hello?! There's nobody there.
This is Boggs.
I'm comin' for her tonight Gonna cut her ear to ear And there ain't a thing you can do about it.
Hello? Is anyone there? This is all in your head.
You know that, don't you? I want you to promise me you're gonna talk to somebody.
What is she, your girlfriend now? I have to talk to her, Angie.
Carla, we have to talk.
Yeah, well, it's gonna cost you 100 bucks.
Listen to me You need to get outta here.
Out of the city.
What for? I think you're in danger.
What kind of danger? Your life's been threatened.
If you're tryin' to get me to quit the life Look, I'm tryin' to protect you.
Well, I don't need your protection, Eric.
What I need is to pay my rent.
Come to my place tonight, OK? Is that what this is about? You you tryin' to get yourself some free tail? Carla, listen to me you're not saying anything worth listenin' to.
Carla, please Carla! Can you blame her? Let's just circle the block a few times.
Why?! I have to keep an eye on her.
Eric, I did some checking.
Rigo's body was sent to a crematorium yesterday.
He nothin' but a pile of ashes by now.
What, are you gonna worry about a pile of ashes? I don't know! I don't know what to think, OK? Well, I do.
We need to get back to work.
I'm not in.
Leave a message after the tone, and I'll get right back to you.
Hey, Boggs, it's Angela.
I need to talk to you about Carla Arroyo.
Yeah, I'm here.
I just got the call.
I don't know how to tell you this, but But what? What's wrong? It's Carla.
She's dead.
They're still combin' the area for the murder weapon.
They won't find one.
Boggs, Rigo had nothin' to do with this.
Just like he said he would.
No, he didn't.
This was a pissed-off john or some crack-head.
Look, he laid it out.
He said he was gonna come.
Eric, listen to me.
I've been listenin' to you, Angie.
And what did it get me, huh? She's dead.
That's right But you know what? She wasn't killed by some ghost.
There was nothin' supernatural about this, Eric.
That's easy for you to say.
You're not the one gettin' the calls.
Look, this girl was in danger every single time she stepped out onto the street.
What were you gonna do, Eric, watch over her 24-7? That's not your job.
Look, Eric, go home.
Get some rest.
My way of lovin' you is like bullets in the rain Ain't a single place to hide, I'll always see you again You should really stop denyin' yourself Of the sweeter things in life That can't be bought with broken words Priceless gifts You're that cop, right? The one who saved her from Rigo? I guess all you did was just buy her a little bit more time.
I feel like I'm hangin' in the coldest breeze At the whim of your emotion, I'm apt to please Here come the queen of pain with the ice-dusted throne The breeze will sting and a passion I own I hope you know, 'cause, 'cause, 'cause You And me Were meant to be Destiny True Complete You and me Destiny What do you want, you son of a bitch? Who's there?! I'm scared.
It's so dark.
Carla? Oh, God.
Here he comes! What?! He's here! Where are you?! Help me, please, help me! Help how?! Nooo! - What do I do? - Stop! No! Stop, help me! Someone, please help me! Noooo! Oh, God! Ohhhh No! Eric? Eric.
What are you doing? We're on duty in 15.
You're on duty.
I'm takin' the night off.
What's up? I just need some time to work this through.
Hey, no shame in that.
Eric, you're gonna be OK.
All right.
All right, you bastard, listen to me Boggs.
It's me, Johnson.
What do you want? That trace report you asked for? I just got it.
You did? Those calls? They've all been comin' from a pay phone in the alley where you killed that pimp.
And you know what's weird? That phone's been outta service for months.
Th-thanks, Johnson.
I'm here.
Where are you? Where are you, Rigo? Rigo! Right behind you, Galahad.
Here I am, Galahad.
And here I am, Rigo.
Tell him, ho.
Tell him who owns you.
Hear that? She knows.
This fool owns no one.
He's just a two-bit pimp, a nothing.
Just a little bit closer.
I saved you once And I can do it again.
Come on.
I'm waitin' for ya.
Aah! I should've never left you alone.
It's a real shame, huh? What do you got? Well, it looks like he was shot with his own weapon, close range.
I'm gonna run the gun for prints but judging from the angle of entry and the powder residue, it looks like suicide.
He was in a really bad place but I never thought that he A real shame.
Eric? Everything's OK.
Carla's safe now.
I'm here to protect her.
Officer Eric Boggs became a policeman to protect and serve the innocent a duty he took very seriously which is why he is still on patrol.
His new beat? The Twilight Zone.
