Blue Bloods (2010–…): Season 1, Episode 5 - What You See - full transcript

An intercepted Arabic e-mail, presumably to Al-Qaeda, from US-born Khalid Hassan, Muslim convert name of Steve Haas, son of a Jemeni immigrant, and ingredients found in his home suggest he planted a large bomb with nails somewhere in Manhattan. Even Jamie and his mentor, who shows him silly advertising suits make ideal crime covers, are kept in the dark as Frank convinces the mayor not to risk a panic by going public without specific information. Danny once helped Steve as terrified abuse victim but can't trough to him and suspects discrimination drove him to extremism. The key is provided by his family, as the ex of his brother, economics academic Adam Hassan, is detected by a 'random' roadblock, driving with their 9 year-old son Jacob.

Okay, on site. We're going in.

N.Y.P.D. Freeze.


On the floor, on the floor now.
Don't move.

Got the rear clear.

Don't move.

- Hello?
- In the kitchen.

You ready?

- Where's Dad?
- On the phone somewhere.


I don't know why you people
are dragging me

to this handball tourney, anyway.

What do you mean?
You love handball.

- I love playing handball.
- Gotta take a rain check.

- Why? What's the matter?
- The information's still coming in.

- Batmobile just showed up.
- Yeah, I know.

Next time, Pop.

- Have fun, sweetheart.
- Where are you going?

Dad, don't forget about
your grandson's birthday tonight.

Never missed one yet.

- Something going on?
- Apparently.

You're always late.

If you can be consistently
ten minutes late,

why can't you consistently
be on time?

Why are you on my case?
I just worked till 0400. Reagan.

We gotta get going if I'm gonna get
a bleacher seat out of the sun.

All right, let's go.

- I gotta go.
- What, you too?

I got a 1 0-2 call.
Gotta get back to work.

And I got ten tuna sandwiches.

What are you gonna eat?

- You think we'd get used to it.
- Yeah, I'm retired.

Counterterrorism has a 23-year-old

Muslim-American in custody
in his apartment in Queens.

Steven Hass. Recently adopted
the name Khalid Hassan.

Raid was triggered
by interception of an e-mail

to al Qaeda leaders
this morning at 0600.

That's a transcription from Arabic.

"Today, no rest for oppressors
in New York City.

In area, fireball slaughters
crusader enemies."

Instructions for a car bomb
were on his computer.

Precursor chemicals, tools, wires,
but no device, no car.

No vehicle is registered
in either name at this time

but neighbors reported seeing him
in an older, dark-colored SUV.

- What's the target?
- No specific target yet.

But they did manage to retrieve
a map to the 59th Street Bridge.

Task force
is already shutting it down.

Double up on checkpoints
at all bridges and tunnels,

- into and out of Manhattan.
- You got it.

It's not gonna happen again.
Not today, not here.

An old dark SUV, huh? Great.

There's about 50 million
of those in the city.

Tell me about it.

- You know the target yet?
- Somewhere in Manhattan.

You're kidding me. Oh, man.

Linda's bringing the boys to Central

All right, yeah.


- Oh, shoot.
- What's the matter, Mom?

Ah, my cell phone died.
I forgot to plug it in last night.

- Can we get cotton candy?
- We'll see.

We'll see like yes
or we'll see like no?

We'll see like we'll see.

- I'm gonna beat you.
- Oh, no, you're not.

This is Linda. Leave a message.

Hey, Linda, babe, it's me.
When you get this message,

just turn around
and take the boys home, okay?

All right, I can't really talk about it now,
just don't be in the city today, all right?

Call me as soon as you get this.

I love you, babe.

Chief Bell from lntelligence
and Pat Mills from Homeland Security.

They're all setting up
emergency operations here.

We've got the MTA, electric company,
joint task force.

Everybody in the same place,
all up to speed and coordinated.

- FBl is interviewing the field along--
- Let's get at it.

- Chief Bell.
- Commissioner.

Agent Mills, Homeland Security.

- Our lead, right?
- It is until I hear different.

We've got a description
of the SUV on the air.

Thirty-five thousand cops
on duty and off are on the hunt.

There are thousands of these SUVs.
It'll take us hours to check every one.

- We need to find who's driving.
- Homeland Security is all over this.

We'll get you data on every breath
Hassan has taken in the last 23 years.

Why am I just finding out
about this guy today?

American citizen,
American passport.

We know now
that he was in Yemen 1 4 months ago.

- For bomb training.
- There was nothing to flag the visit.

- Has Washington been briefed?
- Anything we need.

We can use all the help
D.C. will give us.

Jim, how do we know the bomb
is still in the SUV?

Hassan's diagram.

They built the bomb inside the car
for maximum effect.

- It's not a dirty bomb.
- How do you know?

ESU found no traces of radiation
in the residence or on the person.

So, what kind of effect
are we talking about?

Ten bags of fertilizer,
two gallons of acetone peroxide,

50 pounds of four-inch nails.

If he used the full formula,
it's a two-story firebomb

with one-block blast radius.

Frags and shrapnel,
another half block.

Where are they keeping this guy?

Joint task force is moving him
to Major Case.

Your son, Danny,
had a prior contact with the perp,

which we hope
will help us get to him.

And I also heard that his, um,
interrogation skills

can be quite effective.

You could practically eat off the floor
in this car, it's so clean.

This alert seems more serious than
that suspicious package call yesterday.

Since 9/1 1,
we get threats pretty regular.

It usually turns out to be nothing.

We'll know it's a credible threat
if get another alert within the hour.

You know what I mean?

Hey, hot dog, 12 o'clock.

- I just ate lunch.
- No, suspicious hot dog.

- Get serious.
- Think I'm kidding?

The sandwich-wearing class
is well known to be problematic.

They hide all kinds
of contraband up there.

Look at him, he's getting nervous.

- He doesn't look nervous.
- Yes, he does.

- Go question him.
- But the bomb?

Another alert, I told you,
when it gets serious.

I'm not gonna question some poor guy
wearing a hot dog costume.

See, that is key, kid.

Why else would someone take
a humiliating job

unless there's some upside to it?

Unemployment's near
10 percent and rising.

Stop him, question him, frisk him.

Go ahead.

- lsn't this an abuse of the policy?
- He looks suspicious.

We have an obligation to check it out,
don't we, huh?

Come on.

Hey, do your job.

Come on.

Go get him.

What'd I tell you? Go ahead.

- Unh.
- Hey.

Come on, get off me.

He's got a whole drugstore here.

- Quit moving, settle down.
- Let me go.

Put your hands behind your back.

- Let me go.
- Stop moving.

- Got any weapons?
- No. Let me go.

- Got anything else you're not to have?
- No.

- Come on, let me go.
- Turn around.

- Hey.
- What'd I tell you, huh?

Look at all this stuff.

Let's go. Get up, Mr. Wiener. Huh?

Look what we got here, huh?

Let me go, I didn't do anything.

Just settle down. We caught you
with illegal prescription drugs.

Hydrocodone, oxycondone.

I don't know where they came from.
Suit belongs to the restaurant.

- Everybody's a comedian.
- Should we get this thing off of him?

There should be a zipper
there somewhere.

Here, use two sets of cuffs.

Isn't it bad enough I gotta wear
this clown suit? Have a heart.

Wait a second.

Hey, we gotta book this dog fast,
get back on the street.

Come on. Top priority.

Second alert in 30 minutes.
Come on, get him in the car.

This is Linda. Leave a message.

Linda, what's the point of having a cell
phone if you're not gonna pick it up?

Call me back.

- Still no answer?
- No.

You know, the zoo at Central Park
on a weekend

is, like, wall-to-wall babies
and strollers.

That sound like
a good American target to you?

Blow up a few families
on a Saturday afternoon.

Go find them, Reagan.
Send them home.

Do what? Let everybody else's family
get blown up?

All right, this is him. Ring any bells?

Yep. A strong-arm robbery I worked
a few years back in the East Village.

This guy got yoked to his sneakers,
roughed up pretty good.

This kid's a terrorist threat now?

Was a scared little kid
when I met him.

Until he went radical.

Second squad's chasing
some cousins on Long lsland.

- What else?
- Agents interviewed the parents.

Immigrated from Yemen 30 years ago,

Estranged from their son,
they're blindsided by all this.

- Where's Vitale?
- I can't wait to get my hands on this kid.

Hey, Central Park Station, look,
I need you to page someone in the zoo.

Linda Reagan.

No, Linda Reagan in the zoo.

- Thank you. Look.
- Take him to the back.

Put him in there.

How are you doing, Reagan?

- Tough nut.
- Yup, be fun to crack it.

Don't cross the line, Danny.
We need to make this case stick.

What line?

- What is this?
- Don't know.

Not usually a checkpoint here.

Can you step on out, please?

Whatever it is, it must be
why Dad and Danny had to leave.


I'll call my office,
find out what's going on.

Ah, the DA's office
won't know anything yet.

It's a police matter.
Let them do their work.

Gotta say,
it's good to be back here.

Where I spent a year's worth
of my Saturdays.

Khalid, work with me.
You haven't hurt anybody yet.

His name's not Khalid, it's Steve.

You tell him your name's Steve?

If this bomb goes off,
you're talking multiple homicides.

- The feds have the death penalty.
- But this guy,

he's not afraid of the death penalty,
are you, Steve?

You're not afraid.

Why would he outsource
the driving to someone else

so they can get blown up?

Right, Steve, huh?

Just tell us where it's at,
then you won't throw your life away.

It's your life
that's meaningless and corrupt.

If this goes down,
there's no deal for you.

This is your only chance
to do yourself some good.

I am doing good.

And I spit on your deal.
I want a lawyer.

Hey, your lawyer's on his way
but he's hit some delays

because of all the checkpoints
that we had to set up, thanks to you.

Remember me?
You remember me, don't you, Steve?

You do. I can tell.

Yeah, you do. Yeah, you do.

You just don't wanna admit it, though,

I know you don't want him to know.

How scared you were. A little
embarrassed about what happened.

But I remember.

Remember you came
to see me two years ago?

You got robbed.

You came in and you cried and
you cried and you cried like a little girl.

So, what, you're a man now, huh?
You're all radicalised.

You're gonna get some payback.
Is that it, Steve?

- You're corrupt.
- Yeah.

- Your wife and kids are corrupt.
- Hey, hey.

You don't talk about my wife and kids.
You don't mention my wife and kids.

- You're a coward.
- Reagan.

Are you gonna blow up
my wife and kids?

Hey, can I have something to drink?

Yeah, I'll get you a drink.

Anything on the NSA feed?

Raised chatter, but nothing to relate.

Can you put up
the original e-mail intercept?

I find the phrasing odd.

"ln area, fireball slaughters
crusader enemies."

Yes, Hassan is
a non-native Arabic speaker.

The Arabic word he used for area
is mintaqa but...

- He may have meant something else.
- Probably.

I need to know exactly
what he meant.

Looks like we have something here.

A live chat between servers
in a caf? in Sanaa

and a training camp in rural Yemen.

"Today, New York
feels suffering as our people do."

From the caf?, "ls it done yet?"

"Before the new day."

It could mean
we have until dawn there tomorrow

before the bomber intends
to detonate.

Or just as likely midnight tonight,
Yemen time.

- Which means we have until 5:00.
- Less than six hours from now.

Boss, mayor's office
is asking for a joint statement.

- No public statement at this time.
- Commissioner.

We don't have enough information
to do anything but cause a panic.

Gridlocked streets,
bridges and tunnels jammed

with people trying to get out.

There could be repercussions
for withholding information.

- I know that.
- You understand I have to brief D.C.?

I'm clear on that too.

Change of plans.
We need to swing by Chelsea Piers.

They want all hands on deck
at these checkpoints.

- What about--?
- Yeah, yeah, what about me?

The wiener is going for a ride.
Come on.

Okay, go, go.

Can we work something out here?

You got a record of dealing, pal.
You're in hot water.

Get out of the car, please?

You get it? Hot water?

- Steaming the sausage, huh? Ha, ha.
- I get it.

- Very, very funny.
- I think it's very funny, personally.

Hey, that van is running
the checkpoint. Come on, chop-chop.

- Whoa. Whoa.
- Stop, stop!

- Stay back.
- Show your hands.

- Stay back.
- Show your hands.

Twelfth sergeant to Central,
be advised we have a dark SUV

at the corner of West 23rd
and West Side Highway.

Requesting ESU
and bomb squad forthwith.

Don't move, keep your hands
where I can see them.

Keep your hands
where I can see them.

Okay, okay, don't shoot.
Don't shoot. I'm so sorry.

- Is there a bomb in the car?
- What?

A bomb in the car.

Oh, my God.
There's a bomb in the car?

I don't know. Is there?

Oh, my God.

Oh, my God,
there's a bomb in the car?

Oh, my God.
There's a bomb in the car.

- Are you stoned, huh?
- Okay, well, maybe a little bit.

- Yeah, just a little high.
- Unlock the car.

Get out of the car,
you dopey knucklehead.

Come on, let's go.

What are you smoking, huh?

- It must be good.
- Central, 12th sergeant up.

Our SUV driver
doesn't appear to be the suspect.

No further at this location.

He's not talking.

Let's get anything on who's driving
that bomb and where they're headed.

Over 700 stops. It's gonna take
two days to go through everybody.

Let's just focus on the Arabs.

See if anyone is connected
to Steven Hass from Queens.

- Profiling.
- Call it what you want.

Gotta do it.

How many times you been stopped?

Not as many as my father.

Let's crosscheck with airlines.

See if anyone went to Yemen
the same time as Hass.

See if anyone is a member
of his mosque.

- Vitale's still at it?
- Yeah, he's got me on timeout.

Tell you what.
Hatred's done wonders for this kid.

He's manned up now.

If that's what you wanna call it.

Ugh. This frigging message.

- Still no answer?
- No.

- I'll get back to you.
- Damn it.


- Linda?
- No, it's me.

Listen, Grandpa didn't want me
to bother you, but what is going on?

I'm looking at a pretty aggressive
checkpoint here.

You working on a terrorist threat
or something?

Yeah, a credible threat car bomb
in Manhattan.

- You guys still in Brooklyn?
- Yeah.

Didn't Linda say she was going
to the zoo today with the kids?

Yeah, phone keeps going to voicemail.
Battery's so old it won't hold a charge.

All right, I'll go and find them, okay?

No, you're not going anywhere.
Just stay in Brooklyn, okay, please?

You don't sound good.

I'm frustrated.

Pulled over every Arab
in the freaking state in an SUV.

- Nothing shaking out.
- Why are you sure he's Arab?

- We have one in custody already.
- From where?

Yemen, by way of Queens.

Hey, you know
that terrorist profiles are changing.

I got several cases
in the office right now.

Are you gonna start this again
with the ACLU crap?

Okay, Danny, Danny. Remember
that white kid from California?

- Yeah.
- Or Timothy McVeigh?

All right, there's an English-language
music video on the lnternet right now

recruiting American terrorists.

Okay, okay, I got it. I got it, okay?

I gotta go.

All right, you know what?

Start pulling the stop-and-frisks
we passed over

because people are too white,
too cuddly and whatever.

That you don't hear very often.

It's one of those days.

Wake up, O'Hanlan.
Juice that sucker.

Come on, kill shot.
Let's end this game.

O'Hanlan, you stink.

You stink.

- Ah. I'm glad we came.
- Me too.

I, um, like showing you off
to the guys.

I also like watching a good match,
not as much as I liked playing it, but...

- You'll get back out there.
- My athletic days are over, I think.

Well, then who's gonna teach Nicky
how to play handball?

- Nicky does not care about handball.
- Neither did Danny.

- He didn't?
- No.

He just liked the time
he spent with you.

He'd always come home,
retelling your stories.

I saw you on the phone.

So, uh, what'd you find out?
What's going on?

A car bomb threat in town.

Linda and the boys are there,
Danny can't get a hold of them.

When is this crap gonna stop?

In my day, it was simple.

H-bomb, mutually assured destruction,
a standoff.

These guys, they can't wait to go.

Tell me what your e-mail said.

Oh, man, you know what it says.
You got a translation right there.

Yeah, but it doesn't make any sense.

"No rest for the oppressors today
in New York City."

That's right.

"No rest for the oppressors today
in New York City." And?

- I asked you for a drink of water.
- You're not gonna die of thirst, Steve.

Other things maybe. Not that.

"No rest for the oppressors today
in New York City."

We've been over this
a thousand times.

Yeah, but there's more words here
than that.

You don't know Arabic, do you?

- Yes, I do.
- Yeah?

So this one.

Come on, you speak Arabic.

What kind of terrorist would you be
if you didn't? Spit it out.

Come on, Steve.

- Come on.
- Crusader enemies.


- This?
- Slaughter.



- Fireball.
- Huh.

This one?

- Park.
- Park?

Hey, don't play me for a fool.
That word means area.

That word, mintaqa, means park.

It's a park.

- What? No.
- You just said it.

- I never said park.
- Yes, you did.

- No, you're just trying to confuse me.
- No, you meant to write park.

- I didn't say park.
- You meant park.

I didn't say park!

I'm redeploying men to every park
and playground in Manhattan.

- That's more than a hundred.
- It's a good lead.

Commissioner, mayor's on the way up.

Excuse me.

It took him a little longer
than I expected.

I guess my point is
that if this bomb explodes,

and we haven't warned the public,
or if the press gets out in front of us...

So wouldn't it be better to have
every man and woman in this city

on the lookout for this vehicle?

It would be if we had the specifics
on the SUV and the target.

Right now,
we'd only be creating chaos.

I serve at your pleasure, sir,
but we're just not there yet.

I appreciate that, okay?

So, what happens if hundreds
of New Yorkers get blown to bits?

Thousands maybe,
and we didn't warn them.

You understand?

We didn't tell them
to leave the parks.

I know the stakes, Mr. Mayor.

We will find this bomb
and we will disarm it.

All right, you got till 4, then I hold
a press conference and you'll be there.

Just a lot of people out
on a Saturday afternoon, you know?

So this is on you.

How could we possibly have pulled
over this many Muslims today?

- It's New York.
- Still a blind spot. What have you got?

Got a 22-year-old male,
white from Queens.

Stopped at 1:1 5 in Harlem,
not Muslim, female in the car with him.

Didn't fully toss the SUV,
but guys saw nothing suspicious.

Keep looking. Remind me
to kill my wife if I ever find her.

Mildred Ames,
stopped at 2:35 in Chelsea.

You know, call me crazy,

but I'm gonna guess that,
while it may be very exciting,

75 is probably a little bit too old
to be a suicide bomber.

We don't know it's a suicide bomber.
It could be a remote detonation.

Yeah, whatever.

Mary Jo Clarkson, Long lsland.

Married to Alex Hass.

Alex Hass?
That's one of Khalid's cousins, right?

- You think it's a coincidence?
- Never is.

She's got no priors.

Let see if Mary Jo Clarkson
has a social networking page

that tells us all about her.

Alex Hass was questioned in his office
at the university at 1 400 hours.

Teaches economics,
Westernised guy, no known contacts.

That doesn't matter. His wife was
pulled over in an SUV in Manhattan.

The SUV fit the description given
by his bomb-making cousin.

See if you can find
the video of her stop.


All right, Mary Jo Clarkson.
Married name, Hass.

Husband's name, Alex.
One son, Jacob, age 9.

She's a member
of the same radical mosque as Khalid.

- An lslamic convert?
- Yeah.

They're the most zealous.
Where was she when we stopped her?

She's got a link to a suicide bomber
video right here on her page.

Are you kidding me? How was she
not flagged by Homeland Security?

I have no idea. You know millions
of people watch this crap every day.


This is the shot from the checkpoint.

She's got a kid with her.

You know what,
let's go scoop her husband.

Come on.

The photograph of Mary Jo
Clarkson is going out right now.

Major Case is picking up her husband
at the university.

We're stepping up deployment
to downtown parks,

especially Washington Square.

We don't stop looking at everyone else.
It's a lead, not a sure thing.


You know,
finding her is only half the problem.

I know that.

J.T., call the mayor's office.
I think it's time we go public.

- Alex Hass?
- Yes. May I help you?

- Step inside.
- What's going on?

- Know where your wife is?
- She's not my wife. We're divorced.

- Is something wrong?
- Back, back. Yeah, where is she?

She's on her way to meet me.

- Is she all right? My son's with her.
- Meet you where?

- What's going on?
- Where, here?

- No, at the park.
- What park? Washington Square?

- You're scaring me.
- You're scaring me too, buddy.

What's all the stuff on the blackboard?
Huh? What's all that?

- Economics, my thesis.
- Economics?

Hey, yeah, she's gonna meet
at Washington Square Park. Yeah.

- Exactly when and where?
- Uh, 4:00, near the arch.

Four o'clock near the arch, you got it?
Yeah, no, now, bring the cavalry.

- Let's go.
- No, she has my son.

- Tell me what's going on.
- You tell me what's going on.

Why are you meeting your wife?
Come on.

I was awarded full custody of my son.
She's bringing him to me.

She just asked
for one last night all together.

She said
she had a beautiful place to show us.

- Beautiful place?
- Yeah.

Alex, I need you to come with me
right now, okay?

I'll explain it outside.
Let's go, come on.

You're wife, is she radical?

She converted to lslam two years ago
and went completely nuts.

She and my cousin follow
this radical imam in the Bronx.

I've been trying to get Jacob away
from her every since.

- She crazy enough to make a bomb?
- Oh, my God.

No, Jacob is with her.

- I gotta get him away from her.
- Slow, listen to me. Listen to me.

You could be the trigger, okay?
So slow down.

- What do you mean?
- The stuff she's saying.

The one last night together,
the beautiful place. Just slow down.

Come on, take it easy.

What kind of world?

Looking for a blond housewife driving
around with a bomb and kid in the car.

Cop who let her through
has gotta be kicking himself.

I wouldn't want that
hanging over me.

Though I can't say
I wouldn't have done the same.

Probably saw
the soccer balls back there.

Whatever she had
the devices covered up with.

They must know where she is now,
or at least her intended target.

Otherwise, they wouldn't be
sending us down here.

All we know is we got a 1 0-85
to help set up a perimeter.

But a perimeter must be to keep
people away from the explosion.

We don't know that.

All we know is that we were told to
report to the supervisor at the scene.

I'd like to know what we're getting into.
Wouldn't you?

When you pass the captain's test,
Reagan, you'll know.

For now, get used to not knowing
and following orders.

Street cops get the worm's-eye view.

Know what I mean, kid?

- Yeah.
- Yeah.

Am I sleeping
at Daddy's house tonight?

We'll all be together tonight.

- Where?
- A beautiful place.

- Where?
- It's a surprise.

Is that her SUV?

- Oh, my God, there they are.
- Hey, hey, hey, no, no, no.

What are you doing?
You over there is what she wants.

Okay, if she sees you,
she's probably gonna set off the bomb.

- You stay put.
- Okay.

You stay out of sight. Don't move.

This is Detective Reagan.
Shield number 871 4.

I have a visual
on the car bomb suspect.

At the corner of Washington Square
north and 5th Avenue.

Requesting 10-85 forthwith
to clear the park.

Yeah, no radios, no cell phones.
Any electronics could set this thing off.


Where is he? Where's Daddy?

It's a 4:00 press conference.

So the media is waiting downstairs.
Let's talk about what we're gonna say.

We give them a description
of the woman and the vehicle.

And tell them
there's a bomb in the backseat?

We do.

Just saying it out loud, it's...

- This is the right thing to do.
- I think it is.

We've located the suspect.

Well, that changes everything.

Need you to go back to your office.

No, okay, my boy is--

No, don't you understand?

Listen, she wants to blow you up,

If I let you go, they're gonna be
pulling body parts from the trees.

She wants us to stay together.

She wants you to stay together
in heaven, okay?

If she sees you, it's over.
Go back to your office.

- Would you leave your son?
- I'm--

I'm trying to save your son.
Okay, your son?

Bomb squad's on the way.
They're gonna get your son.

No, no, if she sees the police,
she'll set it off.

She'll never let him go.

I tried to reason with her.
We have to get him.

I can't help.
We're waiting for the bomb squad.

No, please, he's innocent.
He's 9 years old.

- Please, look at me. He's my son.
- I can't let you go over there.

He's my son.

- Don't move.
- Okay.

- Mary Jo?
- Who are you?

I'm Danny. Um, I work with Alex.

He wanted me to come over
and get you guys.

To let you know he's gonna be tied up.
He wanted me to bring you over--

We'll wait here.
Uh, tell him to come down.

I know you probably wanna wait
but he's really, um--

He's tied up with a student
and they're working really late,

and it's gonna be a while,
so he wants you to come on with me.

Why don't we walk over together
and you can be with Alex there?

- I don't wanna leave my car here.
- Okay.

Okay, well, I'll tell you what,
I'll wait with you.

Okay, we'll stay here,
we'll wait for Alex and...

We'll just wait, okay?

Uh, I can't believe, um,
I haven't met you guys before.

Uh, I do economics with Alex.

He speaks a lot about you.
What's your name, little man?

- Jacob.
- Jacob, nice to meet you.

What are they doing over there?

- Who are you?
- I don't know who those people are.

I'll tell you what, I'll go get Alex.

I'll bring him down and you guys talk
amongst yourselves, okay?

I'll bring him to you, all right?
Hey, relax.


- Jacob, it's okay, baby, you're okay.
- Alex!

No, do not come over here.
Step aside.

- Come over here.
- Hey.

You stay back. Get back.

What does your son think
he's doing?

- Mary Jo, let him go.
- Have you lost your mind?

Shut up.
Get back behind the monument, now.

- We are married for eternity.
- It's okay. No.

You cannot separate us.

Get him out of there now.

Alex, get back here.
I will blow this up.

- I will kill your son.
- No, no, no.

No! Mary Jo, no!

Mary Jo, look at me,
look at me, look at me.

You don't wanna do that, okay?
You don't wanna do that.

It's okay, all right?

You do not wanna do this, okay?
You don't wanna die alone.

Hey, hey, I understand.

I understand, okay?
You don't wanna die alone.

You don't wanna die without Alex,
okay? Don't do anything.

It's okay.

This is not how it's supposed to go.

If she sets it off...

ESU is ready to move in
and pull him out, Frank.

Sergeant, tell ESU to follow
Detective Reagan's lead.

First officer on the scene always
has the most information.

And he's a senior detective.

Stay back.

Okay, Mary Jo? Mary Jo?

Look. It's okay.
It's okay, you win, I understand.

You wanna talk to Alex, yeah?
I can help you with that, okay?

I just need you to be calm, okay?

I'm gonna bring him over but I need
you to do something for me, all right?

I need you to keep your hands
where I can see them, okay?

I'll bring him over for you, okay?

But I need you to put
the remote control on the dashboard

and show me your hands, all right?

Let's work together here,
all right, okay? Okay.

Okay, okay, now,
I need you to do something for me.

I need you to put the remote
on the dashboard

and your hands where I can see them.
Just like we agreed to, okay?

- Okay.
- Come on.

There you go.
And your hands where I can see them.


- Aah!
- Jacob?





The bomb squad defused the device.

And the mayor is inviting you
to join him at his press conference.

Where were you on 9/1 1?


I was with you.

Clearing out the north tower.

Sorry, I was thinking out loud.

I know where we were, Jim.

Everybody knows where they were
when the towers went down.

That was your son out there.

Yes, it was.

- Night, Frank.
- Night, Jim.

Pizza pie, get it while it's hot.

- Where is everybody?
- I expect Danny's filling out reports.

- Yeah, I know, but I mean the others.
- Hey, Pop.

Hey, the birthday boy isn't here yet?
I got him a white pie.

I know. They should have been here
by now.

I smell hot, delicious cardboard.

- Ah. Hail the conquering hero.
- Yeah, yeah.

You wouldn't know it
from the ass-chewing I got

from the ESU sergeant,
the SWAT team, the task force.

You did good, son.

If you got your ass chewed,
you deserved it.

Thanks, Dad.

- Where's Linda and the kids?
- She'll be here.

- Hey, everybody.
- In here.

- Oh, what a day.
- Hey.

- Happy birthday.
- I'm starving.

- Happy birthday.
- Thanks.

Oh, but we had a good time,
didn't we, guys, huh?

We saw polar bears, gorillas.


Sorry it took so long to get here.
The subway was so crowded.

Some incident downtown.

How about you guys?
Everybody have a good day?

Ha, ha. Yeah.


- Nothing. Come on, boys.
- What's wrong?

- Everything all right?
- Yeah, everything's great.

How was the zoo, huh?

- The polar bear was giant.
- The gorilla smelled like poop.

Gorillas always smell like poop.
Come on, sit down.

Seriously, what's going on?

We'll tell you all about it.
Right now, our pizza needs attention.

Mom, can I eat on the back porch?

Uh, Frank?

I didn't make up the rules for dinner.

Well, on Sundays, we always eat
at the dinner table.

But on birthday Saturdays,
anything goes.

But after grace.


- Grandpa, where's your cane?
- Well, I've ditched it.

If I don't get my balance back,

how am I gonna teach
my great-grandkids

how to play handball?

I wanna say something.

We all went our separate ways
this morning.

And we all expected to return
to our family

to celebrate
this wonderful young man's birthday.

And here we are.

And I feel very blessed
and fortunate for that.

Well, that was kind of grace.
Can I go now?

- Yeah, go, go.
- Keep it right-side up.

- Sure, Mom.
- And don't make a mess.


Bless us, O Lord, for these
gifts that we are about to receive

from thy bounty,
through Christ, our Lord, amen.
