IN YOUR MOUTH

AND SPIT IN THE MIRROR.

FOR YOU, THEO,

AND THEN YOU KEEP ASKING ME
TO DO IT ALL THE TIME.

BRUSH YOUR TEETH NOW.

LET ME LOOK AT YOUR LIP.

PALE.

IT’S PURPLE, BUT YOU’RE
PALE GENERALLY,

AND DON’T MAKE FUN
OF YOUR DAD NOW.



[ SIGHS ]

HERE.

YOU STOP AT DR. KRONIG’S
BEFORE YOUR SCHOOL

BECAUSE THIS
IS ENOUGH NOW WITH THIS.

[ Exasperatedly ]
OKAY, DAD.

SEE, NOW THERE AGAIN IS
A SMART‐ALECK TONE, THEO,

AND I’VE ASKED YOU
NOT TO GET SMART‐ALECKY.

MM.

ALL RIGHT.
DON’T WORRY, SON.

[ Imitating Andy ]
DON’T WORRY ABOUT NOTHING.

YEAH.

HERE WE GO.

[ KNOCK ON DOOR ]

HEY, HONEY. STOPPED BY
ON YOUR WAY TO WORK?



YOU’RE A LIAR.

JILL.

YOU SAID IT WAS
GOING TO BE DONE, DON.

DO NOT ASK WHAT A NIGHTMARE
WILMINGTON TURNED OUT TO BE.

YOU SAID IT WAS
GOING TO BE DONE.

THEN THIS LOW‐RENT GUINEA
IN WILMINGTON CAME UP EMPTY.

SO NOW
WHEN IS IT OVER?

SOON. ABSOLUTELY.

WHEN?

I GOT TO SEE HIM.

DID KYLE WET THE BED
AGAIN LAST NIGHT?

OH.

OH, PLEASE.

YOU KNOW, MAYBE YOU SHOULD
QUIT COMING OVER HERE, JILL.

LET ME GIVE YOU A CALL

WHEN WE’RE READY
TO HIT THE TURNPIKE.

I’M NOT SAYING
THIS IS NOT MY FAULT.

NO.

I’M A MIRACLE BABY.

I CAME BACK
FROM THE DEAD.

I SHOULD HAVE DONE WHAT
I SAID I WAS GOING TO DO

IF YOU CALLED ME AGAIN.

WHO’S IN THERE?

IT’S NOT A HOOKER.
IT’S A GUY.

IT’S NOT A GUY HOOKER.

DETECTIVE...

THAT WAS A TRAVESTY
OF PROPER PROCEDURE ‐‐

FAILING TO IDENTIFY YOURSELF
AS A POLICE OFFICER.

IS HE ALIVE?

JILL...TRUST ME.

GO TO WORK.

KEEP THE CITY SAFE.

OUR BEST TO YOUR PARTNER.
[ Sniffs ]

MORNING, ANDY.

MORNING.
HOW’S IT GOING?

YOU LOOK LIKE
YOU’RE IN SIXTH GRADE.

IN WHAT WAY?

I DON’T KNOW.

HOW YOU’RE SITTING, YOU JUST
REMIND ME OF A SCHOOLKID.

YEAH, WELL,
THOSE DAYS ARE LONG GONE.

NO ADULT EDUCATION
COURSES FOR YOU.

I STOPPED WITH THEO
AT THE PEDIATRICIAN’S,

THAT HE’S BEEN
LOOKING PALE,

AND THEN HE HAD ME
DROP HIM AT SCHOOL.

SO THE PEDIATRICIAN
WASN’T WORRIED.

AGREED HE WAS PALE,
DREW A BLOOD TEST ON HIM,

AND THEN SAID
TO DROP HIM AT SCHOOL.

UH‐HUH.

HE ‐‐ HE’D BE IN TOUCH
WITH THE RESULT.

HOW QUICK
DO THEY GET THEM?

HE SAID EVIDENTLY THEY COULD
GET IT PRETTY QUICK.

SO THAT’S GOOD, YOU KNOW,
GET IT BEHIND YOU.

YEAH, SO THAT’S
WHAT I’M WAITING ON.

I USED TO WORRY ALL THE TIME
WITH MY SISTERS,

TILL MY AUNT SAYS, "THEY
TELL YOU WHEN THEY’RE SICK."

DON’T ACT SICK AT ALL.
HE’S BOUNCING AROUND.

BUT I WAS NOTICING
THE COLOR.

NO, BUT THAT’S SENSIBLE,
YOUR AUNT.

HEY, JOHN.

[ TELEPHONE RINGS ]

15th SQUAD.

YEAH, THIS IS ME.

UH‐HUH. I SEE.

ALL RIGHT.

AHEM.

ALL RIGHT.

LET ME, UH...

UH...

YEAH.

OKAY.

YEAH.

ALL RIGHT, WELL,

I GOT TO GET
OVER THERE.

WHERE, ANDY?

I GOT TO GET HIM
AND SO FORTH.

YOU WANT ME
TO COME WITH YOU, ANDY?

HE WANTS ME TO COME IN.

LET ME CALL KATIE.

LOST TIME.

ALL RIGHT.

IT’S ME, KATIE. CAN YOU
MEET ME AT HIS SCHOOL?

LET’S NOT DISCUSS IT
BY PHONE, ALL RIGHT, KATIE?

ARE YOU ABLE TO COME IN?

HE’S NOT HURT. WOULDN’T
I TELL YOU IF HE WAS HURT?

DAMN IT, KATIE,
ARE YOU GOING TO COME IN,

OR DO YOU WANT
TO GIVE ME

ONE MORE THING THAT
I GOT TO WORRY ABOUT?

ALL RIGHT.

ALL RIGHT.
THANKS VERY MUCH.

20 MINUTES OR SO FORTH.

TAKES THE TRAIN
RIGHT IN ‐‐ KATIE.

PICK HIM UP,

I’LL WAIT FOR HER WITH HIM
OUTSIDE THE SCHOOL,

OR IF IT’S NOT TOO EARLY
FOR A HOT DOG ‐‐

NO, IT ‐‐ IT’S PROBABLY
TOO EARLY.

ALL RIGHT, LET ME GO.

ALL RIGHT, ANDY.

[ SIGHS ]

WHAT HAVE YOU GOT?

HOME INVASION.

D.O.A. FORCED HIS WAY IN,
ATTACKS THE GIRL.

FATHER AND BROTHER COME HOME,
GO AFTER THE GUY WITH BATS.

WHAT’S THE GIRL’S NAME?

ANITA RIOS.
FATHER’S ALBERTO RIOS.

SON’S EDDIE.

D.O.A.’s LARRY CARDONA.

HE’S 30.

WE COME HOME, HE’S GOT HER
ON THE FLOOR SCREAMING.

HE WAS GOING TO RAPE HER.
WE COME HOME JUST IN TIME.

YOUR NAME IS ANITA?

I’M DETECTIVE JONES,
ANITA.

FORCED HIS WAY IN.

YOU WEREN’T HOME, RIGHT?

SHE WAS HOME ALONE.

YOU KNOW HIM?
NO.

ANITA, HOW DID
THIS MAN GET IN HERE?

HE KNOCKED,
SHE OPENED THE DOOR,

AND HE PUSHED IN.

I’M ASKING HER.

I OPENED THE DOOR,

HE WANTED TO KNOW
WHO WAS HOME,

THEN HE PUSHED ME
AND COME IN,

AND THEN HE THREW ME DOWN
ON THE FLOOR.

WHERE DO YOU KEEP
THOSE BATS?

BY THE DOOR. I DON’T
WANT A GUN IN MY HOUSE.

IS THE KNIFE YOURS
OR THE DEAD GUY’S?

HE COME AT US
WITH THAT.

WE HAD TO HIT HIM.

ALL OF YOU NEED TO COME
TO THE STATION HOUSE

FOR WHAT?

SO WE CAN GET
YOUR STATEMENT.

I GOT TO PROTECT MY FAMILY.
IT WAS HER HE WAS ON.

HER.
THAT’S RIGHT.

YOUR DAUGHTER.

HER. MY DAUGHTER.

THAT’S RIGHT.

LET’S GO IN TO
THE STATION HOUSE.

HE’S IN MY HOME.
HE HAD A KNIFE.

ARE WE GOING TO HAVE
A PROBLEM?

NOT IF YOU COME
TO THE STATION HOUSE.

HI, JILL.

MORNING, DANNY.

HOW YOU DOING?
HOW’S THE BOYS?

GOOD.

WHERE’S ANDY?

LOST TIME.

HE’S GOING OVER A HEALTH
CHECKUP WITH THEO’S DOCTOR.

TEST RESULTS.

MORNING.

MORNING, DIANE.

SO ARE THOSE ROUTINE?

THEY GAVE THEO A BLOOD TEST
BASED THAT HE WAS PALE.

WHEN?

BEFORE SCHOOL,

AND THEN THE DOCTOR
CALLED WITH THE RESULTS.

HE’S GOING OVER
TO HIS OFFICE ‐‐ ANDY ‐‐

AND BRINGING THEO IN.

THE DOCTOR ASKED HIM
TO BRING THEO BACK?

KATIE’S MEETING ANDY
AT THEO’S PRESCHOOL,

AND THEY’RE GOING
TO TAKE HIM OVER,

SO, YOU KNOW,
THAT’S MILDLY WORRISOME.

WHAT IT MIGHT BE,

HE MIGHT WANT TO PUT THEO
ON AN ANTIBIOTIC RIGHT AWAY.

YEAH, START WITH A SHOT

AND THEN PUT HIM
ON ORAL MEDS.

KYLE’S HAD THAT TWICE.

GOOD FOR ANDY’S DOC,

WANTING TO JUMP
RIGHT ON IT.

OH, THEY’RE VERY AGGRESSIVE
NOW WITH SOME OF THOSE BUGS.

HOW ARE YOU DOING?

GOOD.

THANKS, JILL.

SOMETHING TERRIBLE
IS GOING TO HAPPEN.

TO WHO?

DENBY’S PSYCHO.

WIRED ON COKE,
JUST ABOUT COPS TO DEALING.

DON’S MOVING FOR HIM?

OFF WHAT BALDWIN SAW, DON
HAS TO BE DEALING FOR DENBY.

THEY OUGHT TO INVENTORY
ALL THE PROPERTY ROOMS

FOR MISSING COKE.

YEAH.

WHAT ARE WE GOING
TO DO ABOUT JILL?

WHAT, TELLING HER
ABOUT DON?

YOU DON’T THINK
JILL KNOWS?

NO.

NO. ABSOLUTELY NOT.

SIPOWICZ, THEO.

HI, MR. SIPOWICZ.
I’M MIMI.

I WAS YOUR FLOOR NURSE AFTER
YOUR PROSTATE OPERATION.

OH, THAT’S RIGHT.

ARE YOU THEO?

NO MORE SHOTS.

UH, MR. SIPOWICZ
AND HIS SON THEO,

DR. TIMMONS.

HI. HI, THEO.

HI.

THEO’S AUNT KATIE.

HELLO.

HOW DO YOU DO?

THEO, WOULD YOU LIKE
TO SEE OUR PLAYROOM

WHILE I TALK
TO YOUR DAD?

I’LL SHOW YOU
WHERE WE KEEP OUR ICE POPS.

COME ON, THEO.

LET’S GO SEE
WHAT THEY’VE GOT.

THEY GOT BALD KIDS.

WHY DON’T WE TALK
WHERE I CAN WATCH THEO?

OKAY.

WHEN YOU WANT ONE,
THIS IS SECRET.

IT’S ONLY FOR THE KIDS
WHO PLAY IN THIS ROOM.

I DON’T WANT ONE.
MY ARM HURTS.

OKAY.

COME ON, THEO, LET’S GO
AND LOOK AT THE FISHES.

THEY GOT A TANK
LIKE YOU HAVE AT HOME.

YOU WANT TO NAME
THESE FISHES?

HIS HEMOGLOBIN’S LOW.

YES. I’VE SPOKEN
WITH DR. KRONIG.

HIS RED BLOOD CELLS.

HAS THEO BEEN
LISTLESS RECENTLY,

OR IS HE SLEEPING
MORE THAN USUAL?

NO. HE BOUNCES AROUND.
ISN’T THAT A GOOD SIGN?

IT’S ALWAYS GOOD WHEN
A CHILD IS NORMALLY ACTIVE.

DON’T THEY TELL YOU
IF THEY’RE SICK?

ONCE I’VE EXAMINED THEO,

WE’LL DRAW MORE BLOODS
AND GET A CHEST FILM

AND TOMORROW, WE’LL DO
A BONE MARROW STUDY.

OH, GOD.

THEO SHOULDN’T HAVE FOOD
AFTER MIDNIGHT TONIGHT.

THAT WAY WE CAN SEDATE HIM
AND KEEP HIM COMFORTABLE.

HOW DO YOU STUDY
HIS BONE MARROW?

WE DRAW SOME MARROW
FROM HIS HIP WITH A NEEDLE.

HE CAN’T TAKE NO MORE SHOTS.
HE DON’T WANT NO MORE.

MR. SIPOWICZ, WE CAN’T
HELP THEO UNTIL WE FIND OUT

WHY HE ISN’T MAKING RED BLOOD
CELLS THE WAY HE SHOULD.

BUT THEN ARE YOU CONFIDENT
THAT YOU CAN HELP HIM?

I KNOW YOU’RE CONCERNED
AND DISTURBED,

AND I WISH I COULD GIVE YOU
SOME BLANKET ASSURANCE.

THERE’S NO REASON
AT THIS POINT

TO THINK
WE CAN’T HELP THEO.

I CAN ALSO TELL YOU,
AS HE MOVES THROUGH THIS,

YOUR SON IS GOING TO TAKE
HIS EMOTIONAL CUES FROM YOU.

Woman: WHEELCHAIR
TO ROOM 217.

OKAY.

OKAY, I UNDERSTAND.

THIS ORANGE ONE, RIGHT HERE?

DONALD DUCK NUMBER TWO.

LIKE DONALD DUCK
NUMBER ONE AT HOME.

HOW ABOUT THIS BLUE ONE
DOWN HERE?

TIGGER NUMBER TWO.

YEAH, BECAUSE YOU HAVE DONALD
ONE AND TIGER ONE AT HOME.

OH, AND HOW ABOUT THE BLACK
AND WHITE ONE IN THE BACK?

SEE HIM?

BALD KID.

I’M GOING TO GO
GET THEO NOW.

OKAY.

DR. WALSH
TO THE NURSES’ STATION.

AUNT KATIE?

WHY DON’T YOU BRING THEO
AND COME WITH ME?

OKAY. COME ON, SWEETIE.
I’LL HOLD YOU UP HERE.

NOW I’LL GIVE YOU
TO DADDY.

I NAMED THE FISHES
AFTER YOU.

HEY, BUDDY.

HERE YOU GO. THIS WAY.

WHY DON’T BOTH
YOU GENTLEMEN SIT HERE

UNTIL WE GET
THINGS ORGANIZED?

BALDWIN, YOU WANT TO TAKE
MS. RIOS TO THE COFFEE ROOM?

WHERE’S SHE GOING?

TO THE COFFEE ROOM.

WHY DON’T WE MAKE
OUR STATEMENTS TOGETHER?

TOGETHER?

WHAT’S SO FUNNY?

FROM PEOPLE TOGETHER

IS NOT HOW WE TAKE
THE STATEMENTS, MR. RIOS.

WE TAKE THEM INDIVIDUALLY

FROM YOU AND YOUR SON
IN ANOTHER INTERVIEW ROOM.

WE TAKE YOUR DAUGHTER’S
IN THE COFFEE ROOM.

OKAY?

’CAUSE WE’VE BEEN DOING
THIS A LONG TIME.

YEAH, ALL RIGHT.

GO AHEAD WITH THEM.

COME ON, ANITA.

CAN SHE BRING COFFEE
OUT TO US?

NO. WE’LL BRING YOU
THE BEVERAGES YOU WANT.

YOU BOTH WANT COFFEE?

BLACK AND SWEET.

COFFEE?

YOU GOT A COLA?

WE’LL GET YOU A COKE.

GO AHEAD.

WHEN DID YOU START
DRINKING COKE?

SO WHAT WENT DOWN
AT THAT BUILDING?

THOSE TWO SUPPOSEDLY
COME ACROSS

SOME GUY NAMED CARDONA

TRYING TO RAPE THE GIRL
D.’s GOT IN THE COFFEE ROOM.

THAT’S THE ONE GUY’S DAUGHTER
AND THE OTHER ONE’S SISTER.

TIME THEY’RE THROUGH
WITH HIM, CARDONA’S D. O. A.

THEY SMASHED HIS HEAD
WITH BALL BATS.

WE SHOULD GET A RAPE KIT
ON THE DAUGHTER.

SUPPOSEDLY THEY CAME ON
THE GUY BEFORE HE RAPED HER.

DOES THE DAUGHTER CONFIRM

THE ATTEMPTED
SEXUAL ASSAULT?

YEAH, YEAH, SO FAR
SHE CONFIRMS IT.

THAT GIRL’S SCARED
OUT OF HER MIND.

SOME GUY BOOKED
FROM THE BUILDING,

JUMPED INTO A GRAY VAN,

AND BANGED INTO A GROCERY
TRUCK ACROSS THE STREET,

RIGHT TIME FRAME.

GROCER GOT THE PLATES.
WE’RE RUNNING THAT DOWN.

WE’LL ASK THESE THREE HERE
ABOUT A SECOND ASSAILANT.

AND A FEW OTHER QUESTIONS.

OH, YES.

THE GIRL FIRST?

HOW ABOUT JILL?

YEAH, SURE.

HELP WITH AN INTERVIEW?

UM...

OR, UH, YOU KNOW WHAT?

WE’RE GOOD, JILL.

THANKS, GREG.

WE GOT IT.

FIRST THING ME AND MY PARTNER
WANT YOU TO KNOW, ANITA ‐‐

NOTHING YOU SAY
IS GOING TO LEAVE THIS ROOM.

I TOLD YOU
WHAT HAPPENED.

TELL US AGAIN WITHOUT
YOUR DAD AND BROTHER AROUND.

HE KNOCKED.
I OPENED THE DOOR.

HE PUSHED IN,
AND WHILE HE WAS ATTACKING,

MY BROTHER AND FATHER
COME HOME,

AND THEY TOOK THE BAT TO HIM
TO GET HIM OFF.

ANITA, SYMPATHETIC AS WE ARE
TO YOUR SITUATION,

HOW YOU’RE TELLING THE STORY

AND HOW YOUR DAD AND BROTHER
ARE TELLING IT

DON’T RING RIGHT TO US.

YOUR DAD AND BROTHER
SOUND TO US

LIKE THEY’VE HAD AN ANGER
AGAINST THIS GUY

THAT HAD BUILT UP A WHILE.

WE’RE WONDERING IF YOU
MIGHT HAVE KNOWN CARDONA,

AND MAYBE YOUR DAD
AND BROTHER DIDN’T APPROVE.

NO.

YOU’D NEVER
SEEN HIM BEFORE?

NO.

WHEN YOU SAY
HE WAS ATTACKING,

HAD HE BEGUN
TRYING TO RAPE YOU?

YES.

HE LAID HANDS ON YOU?

YES.

AND THAT HAPPENED TO BE

WHEN YOUR FATHER
AND BROTHER CAME IN?

SHOW ME WHERE.

ALL RIGHT?

AND THOSE BRUISES
ARE FROM TODAY?

YES.

THEY LOOK OLDER
THAN THAT, ANITA.

THOSE BRUISES LOOK LIKE
YOU’VE HAD THEM A WHILE.

WHAT DO YOU WANT FROM ME?

WHY ARE YOU TRYING
TO BEAT ME DOWN?

HE RAPED ME. DON’T SAY
HE DIDN’T ’CAUSE HE DID.

YOU’RE SAYING
HE ACTUALLY HAD RAPED YOU

BEFORE YOUR DAD AND BROTHER
GOT THERE?

HE GRABBED ME,
HE PUSHED ME IN,

HE HELD ME DOWN,
AND RAPED ME...

FOUR DAYS AGO.
FOUR DAYS AGO, ALL RIGHT?

DON’S ALIVE.
HE’S SUPPOSED TO BE DEAD.

SO WHAT,
IF HE’S NOT JILL’S HUSBAND?

RIGHT.

THIS TASK FORCE ASSHOLE ‐‐
DENBY ‐‐

SO WHAT,

IF WE’RE NOT WORRIED
ABOUT JILL?

WORRIED ABOUT JILL HOW?

"HOW" CAN BE WORRIED
YOU GOT TO TELL HER

THAT THIS BAD GUY
IS BACK IN HER LIFE.

"HOW" CAN ALSO BE WORRIED
SHE ALREADY KNOWS...

WORRIED YOU GOT TO TELL HER.

IF SHE DON’T KNOW
DON’S ALIVE YET,

THAT’S PAIN
JILL’S GOT COMING,

AND BETTER
IT’S FROM A FRIEND.

WHERE IF SHE ALREADY KNOWS,

THAT’S PAIN WE GOT COMING,
AND BETTER WE FACE IT NOW.

I’M NOT GIVING HER
TO THE JOB.

SHE’S NOT INVOLVED,

IT’S A CALL
TO THE RAT SQUAD.

THEY GRAB UP DENBY AND DON ‐‐
END OF CONVERSATION.

SHE IS,
WE MAKE SOME DECISIONS.

LIKE MAKING IT HER FAULT

THIS PRICK
CAME BACK IN HER LIFE?

LIKE TAKING HER AWAY
FROM HER KIDS?

I’M NOT GIVING HER UP,
DANNY.

IF SHE IS INVOLVED
AND WE’RE NOT GIVING HER UP,

DON HAS TO DISAPPEAR.

DON’S GONE,
DENBY’S COLLARED ‐‐

IT DON’T GO BACK TO JILL.

DON HAS TO DISAPPEAR?

YEAH, HE HAS TO DISAPPEAR.

AND HE’S A SKELL ‐‐

ENOUGH TIME ALIVE,
HE REACHES BACK OUT.

DON HAS TO DISAPPEAR.

SO THAT’S WHAT WOULD
HAVE TO HAPPEN.

WHAT’S SHE SAYING NOW

ABOUT WHY THIS GUY
WAS IN HER APARTMENT?

SHE HASN’T COME OFF THAT.

STILL SAYS HE WAS UP THERE
TRYING TO RAPE HER.

BUT HE FIRST RAPED HER
FOUR DAYS AGO?

THAT’S WHAT SHE’S SAYING.

PLATE NUMBER
THAT GROCER TOOK DOWN ‐‐

COMES BACK TO THIS GUY.

MAKE ONE PASS
AT THE FATHER AND BROTHER,

THEN PICK THIS MOLINA UP?

YEAH, ’CAUSE SOMETHING
ABOUT THIS STORY’S WRONG.

NO SECOND GUY.

NO ONE YOU COULD
HELP US WITH?

NO ONE I SAW.

IF HE WAS A LOOKOUT
IN THE HALLWAY,

YOU’D HAVE PROBABLY SEEN HIM
COMING INTO THE APARTMENT ‐‐

HOW YOU AND YOUR SON DID

ONCE THE GUY ATTACKING ANITA
WAS INSIDE.

I WOULDN’T KNOW.

WHAT DO YOU MEAN?

ALL I CAN SAY
IS MY ACCOUNT.

ANY CHANCE THIS GUY
COULD HAVE ATTACKED ANITA

SOME OTHER TIME, MR. RIOS?

NONE.

NO CHANCE AT ALL?

NONE ABSOLUTELY.

SHE’S GOT OLD BRUISES
ON HER WRISTS.

TODAY ‐‐ THIS MORNING ‐‐
I CAME IN WITH MY SON.

HE WAS RAPING MY DAUGHTER.

I DON’T KNOW ABOUT
NO OLD BRUISES

OR NO SECOND GUY.

GOT TO ACCOUNT
FOR THE BRUISES, EDDIE.

WHO DOES?

THOSE BRUISES ARE OLD
ON ANITA’S WRISTS.

THERE’S NO WAY AROUND THAT.

I AM NOT HER WARDEN,
UNDERSTAND?

I DON’T ACCOUNT FOR HER
24 HOURS A DAY.

SOMEONE ELSE WANTS
TO DO THAT, FINE.

THAT’S NOT ME.
I LEAD MY OWN LIFE.

WHAT MY SISTER GOT
AND WHEN SHE GOT IT ‐‐

I DON’T RUN THAT TAB.

WE CAME IN. HE WAS RAPING HER.
WE TOOK HIM OUT.

END OF STORY.

Sipowicz: 15th squad
to 15th squad base.

15th SQUAD BASE STANDING BY.

Let me talk to Danny,
John.

UH, 10‐4. WAIT ONE.

I‐IT’S DETECTIVE SIPOWICZ.

AHEM.

DANNY TO 15th SQUAD.

Sipowicz: He’s sick.

He’s not making
his red blood cells.

That’s why I saw
he was pale.

WE’RE ON AN OPEN RADIO.

DO YOU WANT TO CALL ME BACK
ON A LANDLINE?

I got no strength
in my legs.

OKAY, ANDY.
WHERE ARE YOU?

In front of the House.
I’m sitting here like a baby.

I’LL BE RIGHT DOWN.

HIS LITTLE GUY’S SICK.

Man: Central to unidentified
15th squad unit ‐‐

stay off the air
with unauthorized transmissions.

UH, 15th SQUAD BASE ‐‐

UH, NO UNAUTHORIZED
TRANSMISSIONS.

10‐4.

HEY, ANDY.

OH, BROTHER.

STEP AT A TIME.

I’M LOSING MY COMPOSURE.

ALL RIGHT.

I’M NO GOOD TO HIM
LIKE THIS.

IS KATIE WITH HIM?

TAKING HIS NAP.

I WAITED TILL HE WAS ASLEEP.

SO RIGHT NOW
THEO IS NAPPING.

SO THAT’S WHERE WE ARE NOW.

I GOT NO STRENGTH
IN MY LEGS.

SO WE SIT IN THE CAR.

WHO HEARD MY VOICE
ON THE TRANSMITTER?

NOBODY.
JUST ME AND JOHN.

WHO KNOWS WHAT’S WRONG
WITH THE BABY?

THE BOSS AND DIANE AND JILL,

THAT I SAID
YOU WENT TO THE DOCTOR.

DO THEY KNOW
THE BABY’S CONDITION?

NO, ANDY.

OH...WHAT’S GOING TO HAPPEN?

WE’RE SITTING RIGHT HERE.

I GOT NO STRENGTH.

I GOT NO STRENGTH FOR HIM.

ALL RIGHT, ANDY.

WHAT AM I GOING TO DO?

I‐I CRY JUST TO LOOK AT HIM.

ALL RIGHT.

I’M NO GOOD LIKE THIS.

WHEN I WAS IN A TOUGH PART,
DID YOU SAY TO LEAN ON YOU?

ARE YOU NOT GOING
TO LEAN ON ME NOW?

OH...OH, BOY.

OH, GOD...

GIVE ME STRENGTH.

WE’RE GOING TO MAKE IT.

WE’RE GOING TO MAKE IT,
ANDY. STEP AT A TIME.

COME ON IN, MICHAEL.
COME ON IN AND SIT DOWN.

WHERE DO YOU WANT ME
TO SIT?

I WANT YOU TO SIT
WHERE I SHOW YOU.

IT’S NO BIG THING,
MICHAEL,

BUT YOU DO WANT
TO WORK WITH US.

A LOT OF TIMES ‐‐

WHICH IS WHAT WE THINK
IS GOING ON

WITH THIS
PAIN‐IN‐THE‐BALLS GROCER ‐‐

A GUY’S GOT PRE‐EXISTING
DAMAGE TO HIS VEHICLE.

HE TRIES TO PASS THAT OFF
AS BEING CAUSED BY YOU.

DO WE WANT HIM
TO GET AWAY WITH THAT?

NO. ON THE OTHER HAND,
IF YOU WON’T EVEN

PUT YOURSELF AT THE SCENE
GIVING HIS VAN A LITTLE NICK,

THEN WE GOT HIS EXAGGERATION
AGAINST YOUR COMPLETE FIB.

THEN WE GOT TO GO WITH HIM.

I’LL TELL YOU,

I’VE GOT A MIGRAINE HEADACHE
TO WHERE I CAN’T EVEN SEE.

DID YOU GET THAT

BEFORE YOU HIT
THIS GROCER’S VAN,

OR AFTER?

NO. I HIT THE VAN.

YOU WANT ME TO SAY THAT?
OKAY.

WHAT WERE YOU
IN SUCH A HURRY ABOUT?

YEAH, ’CAUSE THE PEOPLE
THAT TOOK YOUR LICENSE PLATE

SAID THEY SAW YOU RUNNING
OUT OF SOME BUILDING

BEFORE YOU JUMPED
IN YOUR VAN.

I’M HALF BLIND
WITH THIS HEADACHE NOW.

YEAH, HUH?

LIKE SOMEONE HIT YOU
WITH A BASEBALL BAT.

ANYWAYS...

THIS SHOULDN’T TAKE
MUCH LONGER.

WHAT’S GOING ON HERE?
WHAT’S THE WHOLE SITUATION?

WHAT WERE YOU DOING RUNNING
FROM THE BUILDING, MICHAEL?

WHAT’S MY WHOLE SITUATION?

BECAUSE THERE’S NO WAY
I HAD A DAY LIKE THIS.

NO WAY CLOSE.

YOU NEED TO WORK WITH US,
MICHAEL.

LARRY’S DEAD.

IF YOU SAY, "LARRY WHO?",

THEN WE KNOW YOU’RE NOT
WORKING WITH US.

YOU DON’T WANT THIS
ADVERSARIAL.

HOW THE LAW’S SET UP ‐‐

A PERPETRATOR DIES DURING
THE COMMISSION OF A FELONY,

HIS RUNNING BUDDY’S
RESPONSIBLE.

EVEN IF HE WAS BOOKING
ACROSS THE STREET,

JUMPING IN HIS GRAY VAN,

AND NICKING SOME GROCER’S VAN
JUST TRYING TO GET AWAY,

THE RUNNING BUDDY’S
LOOKING AT THE NEEDLE.

I’M BLIND NOW.

YOU GUYS DON’T BELIEVE IT,
BUT I’M 100% BLIND.

SUPPOSE WE GET YOU
SOME WATER, MICHAEL,

LET YOU PULL YOURSELF
TOGETHER A MINUTE.

LOOK, I’M NOT RESPONSIBLE
FOR NOTHING,

AND I DON’T KNOW WHAT HAPPENED
AT THAT PLACE.

NO, HUH?

NO?

COULD YOU GET ME AN ASPIRIN
WITH THE WATER?

THEN I’LL WORK WITH YOU.

JOHN.

THAT GIRL IN THE BATHROOM...

ANITA RIOS.

WHEN SHE’S DONE,

CAN YOU KEEP HER COMPANY
IN THE CATCHING AREA?

JILL AND I NEED THE COFFEE ROOM
A FEW MINUTES.

OF COURSE.

CAN WE TALK A MINUTE, JILL?

YESTERDAY IN, UH, FREDDIE’S,

I’D GOT SOME CHECKS
MADE GOOD FOR DARLA ‐‐

THE CASHIER?

SHE WAS GRATEFUL, YOU KNOW.

SHE MADE THEM WRAP UP
SOME CAKE FOR ME.

AND I WAS LOOKING
ACROSS THE STREET,

WAITING FOR THE CAKE...

AND I SAW DON
ACROSS THE STREET, JILL.

I MEAN, I CAN’T EVEN BELIEVE
THAT’S POSSIBLE.

CAN YOU?

AND WHAT IF IT WAS?

YOU KNOW, I MEAN ‐‐

YOU TOLD ME FOUR MONTHS AGO
HE WAS DEAD,

AND I MADE HIM DEAD TO ME.

THAT’S GREAT, YOU KNOW.

THAT’S GREAT ‐‐
THAT ATTITUDE ‐‐

BECAUSE HE CAN ONLY
RUIN YOUR LIFE AGAIN.

UH‐HUH.

AND AS FAR AS
WHAT I TOLD YOU...

THIS TASK FORCE ASSHOLE DENBY

SHOWED ME A BODY
HE SAID WAS DON’S

THAT WAS BURNED SO THERE
WAS NO FINGERPRINTS

AND DECAPITATED
FOR NO DENTAL RECORDS,

AND I WAS SURE
DENBY WAS RIGHT

’CAUSE HE HAD BOBBY’S RING,

THAT I HAD LET DON AND YOU
USE THE APARTMENT.

SORRY, DIANE.

THERE’S NOTHING
TO BE SORRY ABOUT.

THAT’S NOT WHY
I’M TELLING YOU THAT.

WHY ARE YOU
TELLING ME, THEN?

I MEAN, IT’S JUST...

THIS IS HORRIBLE, YOU KNOW?
ALL OF IT.

IT IS WHAT IT IS.

WHAT ARE YOU GOING TO DO?

YOU KNOW, WITH ‐‐
WITH YOU NOT INVOLVED

AND HIM DEAD TO YOU...

SCREW DON
AND THIS DENBY, RIGHT?

HOW’S DENBY INVOLVED?

YOU KNOW, I SAW HIM WITH DON
WHEN I SAW HIM ON THE STREET.

AND THEN YOU TALKED TO HIM
YESTERDAY.

I TALKED TO DENBY, YEAH.

SO YOU’RE GOING TO GIVE THEM
TO THE JOB?

SCREW BOTH OF THEM, RIGHT?
DENBY AND DON.

WHAT ABOUT MY KIDS?

AS FAR AS...

AS FAR AS SEEING THAT
IN THE PAPER? YEAH.

I SAID THAT HE WAS GONE,

BUT I DIDN’T
MAKE THEIR FATHER EVIL.

IT’S JUST
A QUESTION OF TIME.

THIS DENBY IS NOT TRYING
TO PROTECT HIMSELF ‐‐

DEFINITELY.

IF YOU’RE ASKING ME
WHAT I WANT, DIANE ‐‐

DON’T PLAY GOD.

IF DENBY’S NOT TRYING
TO PROTECT HIMSELF,

THEN MAYBE DENBY
WILL MAKE THE MISTAKE

AND DON WILL GET AWAY.

SO THE KIDS
DON’T HAVE TO FIND OUT.

OKAY.

WELL...

Okay.

OKAY.

SO AFTER THE DIVE BAR,

WE PARTIED AT ALONZO’S.

THAT’S AFTER‐HOURS ON B.

WE SMOKED ALL OUR REEFER UP.

AND THIS MORNING,
LIKE, 8:00,

LARRY SAYS THIS GIRL
HE LAID FOUR DAYS AGO ‐‐

THE BOTH OF US
CAN GO LAY NOW.

SHE GAVE HIM HER NUMBER FOR
WHENEVER HE WANTED TO LAY HER,

SO I SAID,
"WHY DOES THAT INCLUDE ME?"

HE SAID SHE’D BE DOWN
TO DO WHATEVER HE WANTED HER TO.

SO HE CALLED HER,

SHE SAID WE COULD COME,

WE WENT IN MY VAN,

AND SHE BUZZED US UP.

THEY SMASHED LARRY’S HEAD IN.

A COUPLE OF STEPS IN,

TWO OF ’EM
I GUESS WAS HER RELATIVES

CAME FROM BEHIND THE DOOR.

THEY TOOK BATS AT THE SIDES
OF HIS HEAD ‐‐ WHAP, WHAP!

MY GOD...

I RAN FOR MY VAN

AND DROVE FAST AWAY
AS I COULD.

WHEN THEY TOOK THE BATS
TO LARRY,

DID THEY SAY ANYTHING?

THE OLD MAN CURSED
BEFORE HE HIT HIM,

AND WHEN HE SWUNG HIS BAT,

THE YOUNG ONE YELLED,
"RAPE HER NOW!"

UH, MISS RIOS, WHY DON’T YOU
COME BACK IN WITH ME?

SHE KNEW.

KNEW DON WAS ALIVE?

SHE SAID SO?

SHE LIED, BUT SHE ‐‐
SHE ALREADY KNEW.

COME HOME, YOU CAN’T
GET HER FROM HER ROOM.

FOOD IS GOING COLD,

YOU CAN’T GET HER OUT
TO SERVE IT

OR WHAT THE HELL
IS WRONG?

NEXT DAY,
THE HANG‐UP CALLS START.

10 HANG‐UPS PROBABLY
TILL I HAD IT OUT WITH HER.

IT’S HER JOB TO ANSWER
AND SERVE THE DAMN FOOD!

FINALLY, THEN I GOT
THE STORY ‐‐

WHAT HAPPENED
WHEN LEAVING THE DENTIST.

THAT ANITA
HAD GOTTEN RAPED.

GAVE THIS PRICK OUR PHONE
TO GET HIM OFF HER!

I WAS NEVER LISTED
23 YEARS!

AND DID YOU TELL ANITA
NEXT TIME THIS CARDONA CALLED

SHE SHOULD INVITE HIM OVER?

I’M NOT SAYING
WE SAID INVITE HIM.

HE CAME, AND WE FOUND HIM
WITH HER.

NO, YOU DIDN’T, EDDIE.
WHEN HE CAME,

YOU WERE WAITING FOR HIM
BEHIND THE DOOR.

THAT’S WHAT YOU SAY.
SEE WHAT A JURY BELIEVES.

WE THINK
THEY’LL BELIEVE ANITA.

SAYING SHE TOLD YOU WHAT?

SAYING YOUR DAUGHTER TOLD US
YOU MADE HER INVITE CARDONA,

AND YOUR SON AND YOU
LAID IN WAIT.

SHE DIDN’T SAY IT.

YEAH, SHE DID, MR. RIOS.

SHE DIDN’T! SHE WOULDN’T,
EVEN IF IT WAS TRUE!

HAD TO GO TO THE DENTIST.

THERE’S A GIRL
IN THE COFFEE ROOM.

HER DAD AND BROTHER
JUST WENT FOR LAYING IN WAIT

AND BRAINING THIS GUY
THAT RAPED HER FOUR DAYS AGO.

WE HAD TO PUSH HER
PRETTY HARD.

SHE’S NOT GOING TO TRUST US.

WANT ME TO TALK TO HER?

WE GOT THE D.A.
TO COME UP WITH HOTEL MONEY

FOR A FEW NIGHTS.

SHE’D BE GOING HOME BY HERSELF
TO A BLOODIED‐UP APARTMENT.

LONGER TERM
MAYBE SHE’D BE LOOKING AT

CRIME VICTIM COMPENSATION
BEHIND THE RAPE.

WHAT’S HER NAME?

ANITA RIOS.

I’M JUST GOING TO TALK
TO THIS GIRL

ON GREG AND BALDWIN’S CASE.

WANT TO HELP?

SURE.

ANITA RIOS.

HI, ANITA.

I’M JILL.

MY NAME’S DIANE, ANITA.

SORRY FOR ALL
THAT’S HAPPENED.

GOT HIS BRAINS ON ME.

WHEN THEY HIT HIM,
THE BLOOD WENT ON ME.

ALL RIGHT, ANITA.

I’M NOT WEARING
THE REAL DRESS I HAD ON.

ANITA?

MAYBE YOU’D RATHER NOT STAY
IN THE APARTMENT TONIGHT.

I GOT NOWHERE TO GO.

WE CAN HELP YOU WITH THAT
A FEW NIGHTS ‐‐

PUT YOU UP IN A HOTEL.

A POLICEWOMAN CAN GO TO
THE APARTMENT WITH YOU TOMORROW.

AND AFTER THEY’RE THROUGH
WITH IT,

OUR CRIME SCENE UNIT
WILL CLEAN IT UP A LITTLE.

BECAUSE I’M AFRAID
TO GO THERE TONIGHT.

WHAT ARE YOU GOING TO DO
WITH THEM?

UH, YOUR FATHER AND BROTHER

HAVE TO GO
INTO THE SYSTEM, ANITA.

THANK YOU.

THANK YOU.

WHAT’S HE DOING?

GIVING HIS LOVIES JOBS
FOR WHILE HE’S GONE.

STUFFED ANIMALS ‐‐

I ASKED YOU
NOT TO CALL THEM LOVIES.

SO WHAT TIME TOMORROW?

THEY SAID
BE THERE AT 9:00.

LEAVE AT 8:40
OR THE LIKE?

THAT SOUNDS FINE.

YOU’RE COMING WITH ME,
RIGHT, KATIE?

OF COURSE I’M COMING.

’CAUSE YOU GET ALONG
SO GOOD WITH HIM,

AND I’M WORRIED
FOR MY COMPOSURE.

YOU GET ALONG GOOD
WITH THEO, TOO, ANDY.

YOU GET ALONG WONDERFUL,
EXCEPT WHEN YOU’RE AFRAID.

ARE YOU NOT AFRAID
FOR HIM?

I’M AFRAID, BUT I LET GOD
GIVE ME FAITH.

YEAH, YEAH, OKAY, GOOD.

HE WANTS YOU TO READ HIM
"GREEN EGGS AND HAM."

OH, FOR CRYING OUT LOUD.

WHAT IF I LOSE MY COMPOSURE
WHILE I’M READING TO HIM?

COME ON.

I’LL SIT WITH THE BOYS
A WHILE BEFORE I GO.

I MET SYLVIA SITTING HERE.

ENLISTING IN THE SERVICE,

AND THE TWO OF YOU
GOT ALONG.

THE BABY’S SICK?

OH, GOD, SON.

OH, BROTHER.

POP, SOMEWHERES OR OTHER,
HE’S GOING TO BE HEALTHY.

THAT’S A PROVEN FACT.

ALL RIGHT, BUT REFRESH ME.

I HAD A HOLE
BLOWN IN MY NECK

THE SIZE OF A HUMAN FIST.

YOU’RE ABSOLUTELY
UP AND AROUND?

THAT’S A GIVEN.

BUT THAT’S YOUR ORGANIZATION
OR YOUR AREA OF CONDUCT,

AND THAT’S
NOT AVAILABLE TO ME.

WHAT AM I, A GHOST?

I CANNOT LIVE
ON A DAY‐TO‐DAY BASIS,

AND I AM SAYING THAT
WITH HONEST EXPRESSION.

IF HE GOES, POP,

THAT’S NOT SOMETHING
YOU GET TO SAY.

I CANNOT LIVE WITH PAIN
FOR HIM OR DEATH,

AND HE IS NOT GONE,

AND YOU ARE PRETTY COCKY

WITH YOUR ‐‐
YOUR KNOW‐IT‐ALL ATTITUDE

AND TONE,

AND WHERE THIS CHILD LIES
IN THAT BEDROOM

OR WHERE A NEEDLE
TO SUCK HIS MARROW OUT.

SHOULD WE GO TALK TO HIM?

DON’T YOU PRESUME OR BUTT IN
OR KIDNAP OR EMBEZZLE.

POP.

DON’T YOU TAKE
A SUPERIOR KIDNAPPING ATTITUDE,

OR THAT I’M TOO OLD
OR YOU ARE

WITH THE SIZE
OF A HUMAN FIST.

HE’S ALL RIGHT, POP.
GO AND LOOK AT HIM.

OR DON’T YOU ISSUE ORDERS.

WHAT I CAN STAND
IN MY BEDROOM IS BY MYSELF.

NOBODY’S GIVING YOU ORDERS.

THAT DAY HASN’T COME YET,

AND I WOULDN’T
HANG AROUND WAITING.

NO.

I GOT TO GO.

DO I GOT
YOUR ASSURANCES, ANDY?

MY ONLY FEAR
IS WHAT COULD HAPPEN.

LOOK AT THAT HOLE
IN YOUR NECK.

JUST BE WITH HIM, POP.

DON’T BE AFRAID.

WHAT HAVE I GOT
TO BE AFRAID ABOUT?

THIS LITTLE GUY’S 3 1/2.

IT WAS HORRIBLE ENOUGH
WITH YOU.

I DON’T BUY THAT CRAP.

DON’T ASK ME TO BUY THAT.

NO, OKAY.

IS HE OKAY, ANDY?
HONEST TO GOD?

DON’T WORRY ABOUT NOTHING.
