NARRATOR: In the
criminal justice system

the people are represented by two
separate yet equally important groups,

the police who investigate crime

and the district attorneys
who prosecute the offenders.

These are their stories.

(DANCE MUSIC PLAYING)

Hey, Tinker Bell,
where's Peter Pan?

Hey! Are you practicing for the
Olympic team from Neverland?

Do you know who
I am? No. No, man.

Just a guy on skates. It's cool.

ADAMS: The bodies were found by
volunteers taking a homeless census.



They were out all night trying to get a
count of the people living on the streets.

BERNARD: Yeah,
and dying, apparently.

LUPO: No wallets, no IDs.

This one doesn't even
have a face anymore.

They could be hoboes. There's
a freight line right over there.

Hoboes? What's this, 1933?

Sort of, yeah. Blunt
force to the head.

Maybe college kids
out bum beating.

But this is definitely overkill.

This must be the murder weapon.

A piece of rebar with a
chunk of cement on the end.

Looks like he
caught 'em sleeping.

Not this one.

His shoes are on, pack is on,



facing away from the others.

Maybe running away.

That looks like one of
those old hobo symbols.

BERNARD: Looks like
that's been there for a while.

Anybody know what that means?

Yeah. "Don't sleep here if you don't
want to get your head bashed in."

Time of death's around 2:00 a.m.

Guy with the backpack
took a few minutes to go.

These two were
pretty instantaneous.

And these...

Postmortem.

The killer carved
them into the bodies

after the victims were dead.

LUPO: 377.

RODGERS: Yeah, your
guess is as good as mine.

Whatever the killer used,
it was sharp. (SIGHS)

There are no carvings
on the third body.

That's because
he wasn't a target.

He just happened on the scene

and got clubbed as a witness.

This wasn't a bum beating.
Cryptic carvings, body desecration.

My very first serial killer.

Thanks.

The FBI calls him
the Boxcar Basher.

Oh, that's cute.

He rides the rails, hops
off when he gets the itch.

Always kills within
sight of a freight line.

Well, the Oak Point Links is across
the river from that encampment.

I pulled these off ViCAP.

He's killed nine
people since 2001.

Our three make it 12.

He targets the homeless,
one or two at a time.

They've got no prints
of value, no DNA.

What's with the number? 377?

It's the year Emperor Gratian

declared heretics enemies
of the Roman Catholic Church.

Do we have IDs on our three?

Uh, just one is in the system,

the guy in the sleeping bag,

uh, Mickey Flynn, out of Tulsa.

We're trying to get a
hold of his sister there.

The other two
are still John Does.

There's a homeless
shelter on Ward's Island.

Somebody there might
know who they are.

All right, get on that. Right.

SPINELLI: I used to go by
that campsite every night.

You recognize him?

His name's Mickey
Flynn, used to live in Tulsa.

No.

All right, what about
someone with these skates

with that Olympic symbol?

Uh, sorry. What
about number three?

Oh, God.

Chip.

Who's Chip?

Uh, Chip Hudson.

He and his girlfriend
were staying here.

Uh, doing good, staying sober.

(STAMMERS) They're inseparable.

But this morning, I saw
Mary at breakfast alone.

Okay, is Mary here now?

Uh, no. She usually hangs
around Union Square during the day.

She doesn't like cops.

Is that a bribe?

LUPO: Sort of, yeah.

We're very sorry
about Chip, Mary.

Can you tell us what
he did last night?

We were supposed to go to
the movies, but he was late.

He said he'd met some
homeless guy he knew from around

who was buying everybody
scotch and steaks at Moron's.

Moran's?

I don't know.

I made him take
me to the late movie.

So we got back to the
shelter after it closed,

so we went to the camp, and...

What happened at the camp, Mary?

Hey, we want to catch
the person who did this

and put him in
jail. We really do.

We saw a man leaning over
two bodies on the ground.

It looked like he
was drawing on them.

(CRYING) Chip thought he was
stealing, so he ran in to stop him.

Did you see the man's face?

Sort of. He glowed a little.

His face glowed?

His hand glowed.
It lit his face.

What do you mean,
his hand glowed?

It had a blue light.

He kept looking at it, then
back at what he was drawing.

And then he saw Chip,

and he picked up a
stick and he hit Chip,

and Chip yelled,
"Run, Mary, run,"

and I ran and I ran!

(SOBBING) We should
have just went home.

I didn't need to see that movie.

LUPO: Hey, hey, hey,
hey. Mary, it's not your fault.

All right? Look at me, Mary.

Mary, did the thing in that
man's hand look like this?

I don't know.

Hey, what about now, hmm?

Yeah. Yeah.

What is that?

The killer was looking back
and forth from the screen

to the number that he
was carving into the bodies.

We figured he wanted
to get it just right.

He could have looked up
serial killers on the Internet,

downloaded the number
377 to his cell phone.

You're saying this is a copycat?

Yeah.

Based on a grieving madwoman
who saw a glowing hand?

Not just that. The
carvings are out of order.

Out of order?

Right, on the wrong body parts.

Now these are the
previous victims.

The first carving
was on the toe,

the second one on the foot,

then the heel,
the ankle, the calf,

knee, thigh, hip, back.

Moving up the body.

Yeah. Our victims were
carved in the calf and the arm.

So why does this
remind me of a song?

Dem Bones.

Right. "Toe bone's
connected to the foot bone,

"foot bone connected
to the heel bone.

"Now hear the word of the Lord."

Yeah, it's Ezekiel 37...

Verse seven. Verse seven.

377. Our killer didn't
know any of this,

so he carved the wrong places.

You mean our copycat.

He's pretending
to be a serial killer,

but he had a specific motive

to kill one of our victims.

First thing is to
find out which one.

All right, well, you can
rule out Chip Hudson.

He wandered in when
the two were already dead.

And probably Mickey Flynn.

His sister said he
called late last night.

He'd just arrived in New York.

Not enough time
to make an enemy.

Which leaves the roller skater,

who had no prints in the system

and not enough face left
for anybody to recognize.

Well, someone's bound
to recognize these.

BERNARD: You ever seen these?

No, I don't think
so. That design...

I don't think the Olympic rings

are supposed to be
red and upside down.

You don't see too many of these.

What's that, the skates, or the
upside down Olympic symbols?

The skates. Most
people can't afford them.

Run you about 500 bucks.

Hmm. Thanks. Yup.

A homeless guy with $500 skates?

Maybe the same homeless
guy that bought his friends

scotch and steaks at Moran's.

I'm sorry to hear.
He was a regular.

People called him
the Bipolar Roller.

Technically, I think
he was schizophrenic.

I studied psychology.

(SCOFFS) The Bipolar Roller...

Was he in here last night?

Well, not exactly in.

He and his buddies... Well,
there's a dress code. Plus the odor.

We set up a table
in the storeroom.

You know any of his buddies'
names, where they hang out?

New crowd every time.
The Roller was sociable.

He got money from somewhere,

but chose to live on the street.

Do you know which
street he chose to live on?

He skated around
72nd and Broadway.

Had a regular fan club up there.

(SCOFFS)

The Bipolar Roller.
(CHUCKLES) He's here every day.

Is that good or bad for your
business, with him hanging around?

Don't think it makes
any difference.

Kind of like my
chiropractor. (LAUGHS)

You know his name or
anywhere else he hangs out?

Not really. Why
don't you ask him?

Because he's dead.

(DANCE MUSIC PLAYING)

Pretty lively corpse.

BERNARD: You're a very lucky man,
you know that? We thought you were dead.

"The Bipolar Roller?"

Real name's Jonah Applebaum.

He had a bottle of
expired Haldol on him,

says he doesn't need it anymore.

I beg to differ. Mmm-hmm.

Oh, by the way, he doesn't want
to be called the Bipolar Roller.

Why? It's offensive?

It's trademarked.

Ah.

BERNARD: Does anything in
these two pictures look familiar?

Those are my old
skates. I got new ones.

(MUTTERING) Get down.

Is that Paco?

You tell us.

He had my old skates.

Is he dead?

Yeah. Three people were murdered
on Randall's Island last night.

We thought that was you.

Do you know anybody that
might have wanted to hurt Paco?

Anyone that was mad at him? No.

Why did Paco have your skates?

I gave them to him.

On, uh, Monday.
It was his birthday.

(LAUGHS) He really liked them,
and I'd just gotten this new pair.

Did you see him last night? No.

I stayed in
Manhattan last night.

I didn't go to the camp.

You usually stay there?

Mmm. It's nice.
I like the river.

Hmm.

So, it's possible that whoever
killed Paco thought he was you.

Me?

He had your skates. You
usually stay there. It was dark.

Was anyone mad at you?

Putin.

Putin... Vladimir Putin,
the Russian leader?

He's ex-KGB.

The KGB is mad at you?

I really can't talk about this.

LUPO: We understand.

Maybe somebody
wanted your money.

Has that ever been a problem?

No. (LAUGHS)

Where do you get your money?

My clothing line.

Someone tried to kill Jonah?

We're not sure. Can you
think of anybody who'd want to?

GRANT: No.

I mean, he yells at people
on the street sometimes,

but he's harmless.

It seems as if he's a
fashion entrepreneur

which, I gotta tell ya,

(CHUCKLES) seems a little odd.

(LAUGHS) It was
my brother's idea.

He heard about a guy
like this in California.

He's got his own
clothing line, too.

And then I saw Jonah,
skating up at 72nd Street.

He had a following.
He was so crazy.

I don't mean "crazy"
crazy, just crazy. Yeah.

We thought people
would like the image.

Actually, he is "crazy" crazy.

You don't think this is
maybe a little exploitative?

He gets the standard
royalty, 6% of the gross.

He takes part in cash, and the
other part in booze and disco tapes.

(LAUGHS) He's got a
classic collection piled up

in a corner of the warehouse.

You know, if Jonah
weren't around,

there'd be more for you.

If Jonah weren't around, there
wouldn't be anything for anybody.

He's the brand.

Anyway, his heir would
still own his contract.

We'd keep right on paying.

Who are his heirs?
Heir. His cousin.

Jen.

I'm the only family he's
got, or gives a damn.

He's got a brother in California
who hasn't seen him in years.

His partners in
the T-shirt company

say he lists you
as his next of kin.

He used to stay here sometimes,
until my boyfriend moved in.

This place is barely
big enough for one.

So Jonah's T-shirt
money would help you out.

Right. So to get a
few hundred dollars,

I killed a stranger I thought was
my cousin, plus two other people?

Do you know Jonah's story?

Only that the KGB's after him.

He was 23, training for
the Olympics, a pole vaulter.

He still holds the
U-Conn school record.

The Russians were
prime contenders that year.

The Olympic rings, the KGB...

One night he got high.
He was self-medicating.

The schizophrenia was starting
to kick in, and he crashed his car.

He broke his left arm, bad,
so no more pole vaulting ever.

He became convinced
that the Russians

had slipped him bad
drugs so their guy could win.

Uh, Cal, uh, these
are detectives.

They think somebody
tried to kill Jonah.

Really? Why?

We don't know. Any theories?

That guy, God only knows.

He skate over
someone's foot again?

Cal. He's her pet.
I'm just the boyfriend.

JEN: Jonah's got
to be freaking out.

He was already upset yesterday.

He came by here. He was
running around in just his socks.

He wanted some of his
money. I hold it for him.

What was he upset about?

JEN: He said that
some guy he knew...

Uh, Paco, had stolen his skates.

He ran out of here
to buy new ones.

You lied to us, Jonah. You said
you gave your skates to Paco.

I was afraid that... That you
guys would think that I killed Paco.

Well, now we do think
that you killed him.

See?

LUPO: Jonah...

Now would be a really good
time to tell us the whole story.

Somebody was following me, okay?

The Russians.

Paco said he'd take
my skates for one night.

That's... The skates are
how they know who I am.

And then Paco
wouldn't give them back.

So you got mad,
and now he's dead.

(KNOCK ON DOOR)

Sorry, we're not in the market
for any T-shirts right now.

Mr. Carpenter says he's
Mr. Applebaum's attorney.

I am an attorney. Mostly
commercial real estate,

but Jonah's cousin
told me you took him in.

JONAH: They think I killed
Paco. Jonah, stop talking.

Don't say anything else.

Is he under arrest? No.

Then we're leaving.

LUPO: He lied about
the stolen skates.

He's got motive.

Well, does he have a PDA

with a picture of the
number 377 on it?

Let's go look. He keeps
his stuff at the warehouse.

LUPO: Check this out
"Applebaum Leaps for Glory.

"Sophomore phenom
Jonah Applebaum

"clears 18 feet for a
new conference record."

BERNARD: He had
a life once. A future.

"The KGB and Mind Control."

This is what his
life's about now.

And this. What?

(SIGHS) Dried blood.

Hey! Jonah! We have a
warrant for your arrest. All right?

Oh, God! Oh, God! Jonah, stop!

BERNARD: Get him that way, Lupo!

Get him, Cyrus! Go
get him! Cyrus! Get him!

Go, go, go! Jonah!

Jonah, stop!

(BOTH GRUNTING)

Come on. Stand up.

Get up. Put your
hands behind your back.

(PANTING)

Gotta look both ways, man.

"Case number 16352,
People v. Jonah Applebaum,

"three counts of Murder
in the Second Degree."

Plea?

Your Honor, we're going
to need a 730 exam.

I want to plead not guilty.

JUDGE: I believe that may be
what your attorney has in mind, sir.

No, not "not guilty"
on account of I'm crazy,

"not guilty" on
account of I didn't do it.

Let's just call it "not
guilty" and split hairs later.

The People request remand.
Mr. Applebaum has no fixed address.

JUDGE: And is
possibly schizophrenic.

Send him to Rikers. The
intake unit can evaluate him.

(JUDGE BANGS GAVEL)

Excuse me. This
is a terrible mistake.

And you are?

Grant and Bob Carpenter. We're in
business with Jonah. And we're his friends.

The knife he used to carve his
victims was found in your warehouse.

BOB: In one of his boxes, right?

Until a couple of weeks ago,

all that stuff was at
his cousin's place.

The morning after the murders,

her boyfriend brought
some boxes over.

But that boyfriend,
Cal, doesn't like Jonah.

I don't think he'd mind getting
rid of him, one way or another.

Thanks.

Jonah took some of his things
out of my place last month.

We've been moving
the rest bit by bit.

Including some the
morning after the murders?

Yeah, Cal took some stuff over.

He wants to make
room for a drum set.

Was this knife in
one of those boxes?

I don't know.

You can't just think about
protecting your cousin, Ms. Nelson.

You've got to think
about other people.

It's Jonah's.

But I don't believe
he'd hurt anybody.

That knife was found
in one of Jonah's boxes.

Someone who had access
to that box is the killer,

and if it's not Jonah...

What, Cal?

CUTTER: We realize
this is a difficult situation.

Does your boyfriend
know you stand

to inherit Jonah's
merchandise royalties?

I guess. I don't know.

What do you want me to do?

Hey, that's... That's
my stuff in there.

I thought you were supposed
to be looking at Jonah's.

Well, how do we know his
stuff isn't mixed in with yours?

Because mine doesn't
smell like dog crap.

Did you take boxes over to the
warehouse the morning after the murders?

Yeah. Jonah has more room
over there than we do here.

He said "thank you"
and put them away.

Wait, he was there?
How did he act?

You know, same as
usual. KGB out to kill him.

He was just waiting
for Grant and Bob.

They had a big photo
shoot set for 9:00 a.m.

Jonah was there in
his shiniest spandex,

but his partners and the
photographer never showed up.

BERNARD: Do you
know what this is?

That's a knife sheath.
That pile's junk.

It's ripped. Not good for much.

Jonah left it.

I've been meaning to
throw that whole pile out.

I'll take care of it for you.

Why didn't somebody
run it by me?

This is something I
know about, you know.

My final campaign fundraiser

is at Barona's, (SIGHS)

which the organizers
just discovered is owned

by a man who did 20
years for racketeering.

So...

You have a psychotic
roller skater and...

The question is, who had access

to a knife used to
mutilate the bodies?

The skater, or the skater's cousin's
boyfriend, or... (PHONE RINGING)

Hold on.

Yes?

Aren't half the restaurants in
town going out of business?

Just check.

Maybe we should come
back after the election.

You left out the partners.

The partners?

Wasn't the knife found
in their warehouse?

They're the ones who
pointed us to the cousin.

Well, that was friendly.

The cousin's boyfriend said
that the skater showed up

for some big photo shoot
the morning after the murder,

but the partners didn't.

Maybe they didn't
bother to get out of bed

because they thought
they'd killed him.

(CELL PHONE RINGING)

What?

Yes.

Chinese food is fine.

And in two days
before the photo shoot,

they tried to cancel
the China shipment.

It was a quarter million
dollars of Bipolar Roller clothing,

but it was already on a boat.

That's a lot of T-shirts. It
was their big expansion.

They put every last
cent they had into it.

So why'd they try to cancel?

Why did they want to be out of
the Jonah Applebaum business?

There's one person
that we could ask.

We're not actually interested
in Mr. Applebaum today.

We have some questions
about Grant and Bob Carpenter.

Why?

Did they have access to your
storage area in the warehouse?

(SCOFFS) They're my partners.

Did you know they tried to shut
down the entire clothing business

a few days before the murders?

They wouldn't do that.

We need it.

What do you need it for?

That's operational.

I don't think you're cleared.

CUTTER: Cleared?

Are you involved in a government
operation, Mr. Applebaum?

(LAUGHS) No.

No. It's a T-shirt business.

We work for the
government, too, you know.

Yeah, well, there's
the government, and...

Then there's the government.

So you and we,

we don't work for the same part.

But Grant and Bob,
they work for your part.

So they have
clearance. Obviously.

So they know your
storage lock combination,

and they know where
you sleep at night?

It's need-to-know basis.

They need to know.

This is harassment.

Because we told you
Jonah was innocent.

Then we won't find
anything, will we?

Did you ever go into
Jonah's storage area?

No. He'd kill us.
That's hyperbole.

Jonah was surprised to find out

that you tried to cancel
your big China order.

We found a cheaper
supplier in Cambodia.

Where in Cambodia?

(HESITATES) South Cambodia.

Excuse me.

What are you looking for anyway?

Oh, you never know, you know?

It's getting late. I've
got to call my wife.

Hey, can I borrow
your cell phone?

It has the Internet, right?

Hey. Can you do that?

Office equipment.
Read the warrant.

BERNARD: Well, look at this.

It has a link to a
serial killer fan site.

Look what's bookmarked.

You a big fan of
the Boxcar Basher?

I want a lawyer.

A real lawyer.

The girlfriend of
the homeless man

who wandered onto
the scene and got killed

picked Mr. Carpenter
out of a photo array.

This would be the
insane homeless girlfriend

who was 50 feet
away in the dark?

CUTTER: Grant
Carpenter, the other brother,

used the GPS in his car
to get to Randall's Island,

the murder site, a half an
hour before the murders.

They're good for it, Jack.

They thought they
were killing Jonah,

and when that didn't work,
they figured second best

was framing him for the murders.

If they wanted to frame him,

why did they point you
toward the cousin's boyfriend?

Well, they changed their mind.

It's got to be bad for business

having your front man
convicted of a triple murder.

Or one of them changed his mind.

Grant was the one who
pointed me to the boyfriend.

And Bob is as dumb
as a sack of hair.

"South Cambodia."

What are you doing
with the Bipolar Roller?

We dropped our
opposition to bail

and his brother in
California posted bond.

Fax from Forensics, for you.

The skater posted
bond? He's out?

Couple of hours ago. Why?

That old knife sheath
of his the police found,

it had no connection
to the current murders,

but it had DNA
inside that matches

five of the serial
killer's previous victims.

Jonah Applebaum
is the Boxcar Basher?

You just put an insane
serial killer back on the street.

CONNIE: He doesn't
know that we know that.

We can still pick him up.

You'd damn well better. This
could be Willie Horton all over again.

Willie Horton? You're not
worried about the election, are you?

JACK: I'm worried
about everything.

About him killing someone else.

About the way
this office is run.

A serial killer in our
hands and then released.

Am I being too picky?

(DANCE MUSIC PLAYING)

There he is.

That's our boy.

Move in.

(LAUGHS)

Jonah! You're under arrest!

On the ground! Now!

Jonah, stop!

Don't shoot! Don't shoot!

(BERNARD GRUNTS)

(PANTING)

That's the last time
I want to do that.

(LAUGHING)

Get up! Whoo!

You want to dismiss the charges?

Yes, for the murders here,

but we are holding him for
a murder in Buffalo in 2006.

Mr. Applebaum is also the
suspect in eight other murders.

But not the three he was
charged with the other day?

No, not those.

I guess I'm going to have
to buy myself a scorecard.

All right, the charges
are dismissed,

but we're gonna keep
Mr. Applebaum in a mental health unit.

(JUDGE BANGS GAVEL)

BAILIFF: "Case number 16353, People
v. Grant Carpenter and Robert Carpenter,

"three counts of Murder
in the Second Degree."

These are the three murders that
the other gentleman didn't commit?

That's right, Your Honor.
The People are now convinced

that these are the guilty
parties in those crimes.

Which are identical to the nine
murders Mr. Applebaum committed.

The defendants sought to elude
detection by copying his pattern.

Mr. Applebaum
will be our witness.

A witness who committed nine murders
identical to the ones charged here?

I rest my case, Your Honor.

Good luck, lady.

I'm not at liberty to
discuss my missions.

Your missions, Jonah, do
they ever involve killing people?

What part of "I'm not
at liberty to discuss it"

do you not understand?

You've told your friends
that the KGB tried to kill you.

But I'm still here.

They didn't want you to
compete in the Olympics, did they?

No.

They...

They sent a doctor to the
hospital after my car crash.

My broken arm
could have been fixed.

What does this mean to you?

"As I was prophesying,
there was a noise,

"a rattling sound, and
the bones came together,

"bone to bone." Bone.

Just what it says.

Bones can be put back together.

Including your arm?

It's not about that.

It's about protecting
our country.

Your missions?

Bob and Grant...

Did they know
about your missions?

Of course. They
were my handlers. Or...

That's what I thought they were.

He's a paranoid schizophrenic

and he incorporated Bob
and Grant into his delusion.

That he's killing Russian
spies to protect this country?

Yes. Russia declared war on him

when they destroyed
his Olympic career,

so the US government thought
he'd be the perfect man for the job.

Every time he kills a Russian,

he engraves the Bible verse

so they know who did it.

Where do Bob and Grant fit in?

They approached him with their
idea for the clothing business,

which he obviously
thought was ridiculous.

So, he's not completely crazy.

He believed it was a cover.

Bob and Grant would
guide him, pay him,

protect him under the guise
of being in business with him.

Now he believes
they tried to kill him.

We need Jonah to
testify to get all this in.

JACK: The jury
won't buy any of this

if he starts ranting
about the KGB.

What about antipsychotic drugs?

They could make a difference,
but he refuses to take them.

We can't make him unless
he's a threat to himself or others.

We need him. He takes the stand.

Are you sure that's a good idea?

Nope.

JONAH: They tricked me. They
told me they were on my side.

What side is that?

I've, uh... I've been doing
missions for the government.

Did your missions
involve killing people?

I'm not at liberty to say.

We need the truth
here, Mr. Applebaum.

The jury needs it

to decide if Grant and Bob
Carpenter are guilty or not guilty.

Now, did your missions
involve killing people?

Yes, enemies of this country.

I thought Grant and
Bob came to help me.

So, you told them
about your missions?

Of course. And
how did they react?

They pretended to be
surprised, to get upset.

They tried to convince me
not to do anymore missions.

I thought that they were
just playing the cover.

Now I realize that they
really did want me to stop.

But I wouldn't, of
course. I couldn't.

Now, in the days before the
murders of your friend Paco

and the other two homeless men,

did you ever see Grant
and Bob outside the office?

Yes. They were following me.

I saw them near
my campsite at night.

I thought they were there to
protect me from the Russians.

Now I realize you were
getting ready to kill me.

No further questions.

So, (CLEARS THROAT) you believe

that Grant and Bob
Carpenter tried to kill you.

JONAH: They wanted
to stop my missions.

They were following me.

When you were 25 years old,

were you diagnosed
with a mental illness?

JONAH: Yes. But it wasn't true.

What was the false diagnosis?

Schizophrenia, Paranoid
Type. It was a lie.

They...

They had a Russian doctor there.

(LAUGHS) You're a diagnosed
paranoid schizophrenic,

and, uh, you're telling us
someone was following you?

They were.

TYRELL: They also
wanted to stop your missions.

Why would they want
to do that? Objection.

The witness' theories
are not relevant,

only what he saw and heard.

Considering his condition,
I think we're entitled

to know how he understood
what he saw and heard.

Overruled.

The witness may answer.

JONAH: They're
agents of the KGB.

(LAUGHING) They're Russians?

They don't sound like Russians.

(SIGHS IN FRUSTRATION)

There's a secret town near
Moscow where the KGB are trained.

It's like a little America, and
everyone learns perfect English.

TYRELL: So they were
trained in this secret town,

then came to America. Why?

To destroy our Olympic athletes

by giving them energy drinks

that were laced with
toxic mercury essence.

But I know about you. I know.

(STAMMERS)
Mr. Applebaum, control yourself.

That's why you tried to kill me.

But I'm still here.
(LAUGHS) I'm still here,

and I'm going to keep
doing what I need to do.

You're going to kill
more Russian spies?

Somebody has to.

Police going to do it? No, the police
won't do it. The army's been infiltrated.

That's enough. We're
done for the day.

I have no more questions.
I have redirect, Your Honor.

Fine. First thing
Monday morning.

You're finished,
comrades! I know about you!

I know about you,
you understand?

I know what's going on!

(JONAH SPEAKING GIBBERISH)

You're finished!
You're dead men.

Dead! I know about you!

Maybe putting him on the stand

wasn't such a
good idea after all.

I have redirect on Monday.

I can try to rehabilitate him.

The only way to rehabilitate him

is to get some
antipsychotic drugs in him.

And we can't do that unless
he's a threat to himself or others.

Okay.

DR. OLIVET: Isn't his attorney
supposed to be here if you are?

Uh, we're not going to use
anything he says against him.

What do you want me to ask him?

Nothing. Just watch.

(LAUGHS) I told them, didn't I?

Yes, you did, Jonah.
You told them everything.

That was the plan.

What plan?

Well, we needed to
know about your missions,

so that we could neutralize
you and the rest of our enemies.

Your enemies? The United States.

Freedom. American
Olympic athletes.

(STAMMERING) But...

You're going after
Grant and Bob.

You're going to
put them in jail.

CUTTER: Well,
that's what we told you.

What the hell is he doing?

JONAH: Oh. Okay.

You mean, you, Grant, Bob...

Yeah, you know that
secret town near Moscow?

That's where we met.
How do you like my English?

Stop this. Now.

You're one of them.

Oh, we all are.
The trial's a show.

You can kill a few of us,
but you can never win.

We are way, way
smarter than you are.

It was so easy
to break your arm.

We should have
broken your stupid neck.

(TAUNTING IN RUSSIAN)

(GASPS) I'll kill you!

I'll kill you!

I'll kill you! I'll kill you!

(SCREAMING)

Let me go! Let me go!

I'll kill all of you!
You deserve...

A danger to himself and others.

JONAH: I protect you!

JACK: Dr. Olivet called.

She wants you suspended
or charged with assault.

Did she give him the
drugs? She had to.

He was trying to break out
of his cell with his bare hands.

But she doesn't want to
send him back to court.

Well, that's not up to her.

No. It's up to me.

Because of what I did, a sick
man is getting medication he needs.

But that's not why you did
it. You did it for your case.

Win-win.

Mr. Applebaum, you
told us the other day

that these defendants
are Russian spies.

Are they?

No.

(STAMMERING) I wasn't thinking.

I wasn't thinking right. I haven't
been thinking right for a long time.

Now I remember things...

Uh, really terrible,
awful things.

What things?

I killed nine people.

Nine, because I thought...

I thought that they had
caused my accident,

I thought that they
were my enemies, and...

And that wasn't... Wasn't true.

And I am so...

So sorry.

Did you murder Paco and
the other two homeless men

at the campsite on
Randall's Island?

No, I didn't. I didn't
do that. Not them.

Why should we believe you?

You killed nine others.

Paco was my friend.

I never thought
he was a Russian.

And I was afraid to go
anywhere near the campsite, so...

Why is that?

Because people were
spying on me there.

They were...

It was not Russians,
but Grant and Bob.

They said... They said they were
protecting me, but they weren't.

Well, how do you know?

After I told them about my
missions, that I was killing people,

they were so shocked.

They were afraid to
be anywhere near me.

And then I overheard
Grant telling Bob

that this was going
to ruin the business,

and that they were going to
have to find some kind of way out.

And I saw them take
something out of my locker.

It looked like my knife, and...

They had the combination.

They had the combination.

377.

(JONAH SIGHS)

I wish you had just killed me

because of what I've done.

What I might... Will
probably do again.

I can... (SIGHS)

I already have these... I can feel
the thoughts coming back already,

and it's like they...

(SIGHS) It's really
hard to explain.

It's so hard to explain.

I just...

I just wish someone
could help me,

because I don't know...
I don't know what to do.

(STAMMERING)

I don't know what to do.

Grant and Bob Carpenter
are asking for a deal.

How's Mr. Applebaum?

He's maintaining as
long as he's on the drugs.

But they make him too
lethargic to roller skate.

I don't think Bellevue is starting
a derby team anytime soon.

(PHONE RINGING)

Yes. Yes, I'm on my way.

Final fundraiser.

Chinese seafood restaurant,
with a kosher section.

Mock shrimp.

If you don't win, Jack, I'm out
of here. Into private practice.

I'll join you. "McCoy and
Rubirosa. No client too guilty."

"Rubirosa and McCoy."

Can I come, too?

Someone has to watch the store.
