Blue Bloods (2010–…): Season 1, Episode 6 - Smack Attack - full transcript

Three pupils of father Leo's prestigious Catholic high school St. Angelo's die from drug use at a party, hosted at home by classmate Caitlin Breyer. Jamie is able to save fourth user Alyson Duvitz's life by mouth to mouth. It seems an OD, then a bad designer drug. When known dealer Wayne Foster is arrested, after denunciation by school pusher Billy Romero, identified with some help from the archbishop after a talk with alumnus Frank, the lab shows the rest of his batch is clean. Danny must find a more personal motive, especially after his victim survives another attempt on her life, now by car.

[3OH!3's "DOUBLE VlSlON"


GUY: Sweet party.
- Hey.

Uh, last room on the left.
My dad's not home till Friday.

Oh, my gosh.

Can you believe he brought her?

Seriously, so rude.

Whatever. They deserve each other.

- This was a bad idea.
- Come on, Caitlin invited me.

She knows we're together.
Girl loves drama.

I say, let's give it to her.


A piece of trash.

- Which one?
- Yeah, right.

I feel so close to you, Billy.

I know how we can feel even closer.

What's that?

M-Cat. It's new.

I want to do it together.
You'll feel so awesome, I swear.

- I don't know, Billy.
- There's nothing to be afraid of.

- It's not addictive.
- If she won't do it, I will.


Even the captain of the lacrosse team
wants to have some.

Murderers walking the streets,

drunk drivers and I get hassled
for talking on my cell.

You know this is gonna put me out
of a 3.5 mil showing.

Oh, what, I can't talk now?

In case you haven't noticed,
the car's not moving.

- Just looking out for your safety.
- Oh, don't give me that righteous BS.

This is about power and money.

You've got the power
so you're taking my money.

I know, do you believe this?
I should get his badge number.

- Have a nice night, ma'am.
- Screw you.


Another satisfied customer, huh?

I hate this part of the job.

She's not half wrong, you know?
The CO wants an increase in activity.

- How much activity are we talking?
- Unwritten rule.

One cell phone, three seatbelts,
1 1 miscellaneous per set of tours.

I didn't sign up to be a tax collector.

Oh, yeah? You should of stuck
with that cushy law job.

At least you get six figures
to piss people off.


Central to 13 Charlie,

respond to a 10-50
at 1345 West End Avenue.

Loud and boisterous complaint.

Come on, kid,
let's go make some more friends.

All right.

Ooh. Ooh, la, la.

There's my date. Wow.

You're looking good, Dad.

Nobody is gonna be looking at him.

Hey, pancake, what say
we break out the Scrabble board?

- Double or nothing?
- Maybe later.

I've got homework.

What's with the dark cloud?

She thinks she too old to be babysat.

Yeah, when you were 1 4,
you were doing the babysitting.

Maybe you need to loosen the reins.

This coming from the man
who sent a patrol car

to follow me around on prom night.

I never sent a patrol car.

I wouldn't do that to you.
It was unmarked.

Because we checked
the driving record of your date.

Big night tonight.

- Shall we?
- Thanks for this, Gramps.

- Bye, Nicky, I love you.
- Bye, Nicky.


Nice moves, sergeant.



We got a complaint
of loud noise here.

Party on a school night?
What's the occasion?

We're just working on a class project.
I'll turn the music down.

This class project involve
underage drinking?

- No.
RENZULLl: Are your parents home?

My dad just ran to the store.

Guys, come on. Wake up.

Oh, my God.
What's wrong with them?

Back up, everybody.

- What's going on?
JAMlE: Hey, back up, back up.

- Hey, kill the music.
- Hey, hey, buddy.

- Hey.
- Anybody know what they took?

Hello, sergeant, I got four minors
in need of urgent medical care.

- 1345 West End Avenue.
- Nobody leaves.

Hey, buddy, hey.
Hey, come on, wake up.

Hey, come on, wake up, wake up.
Come on, come on, come on.

Hey, man, these three look bad.

I think this one's got a chance.

Anybody know CPR, huh?

Just watch me.
Like this, like this, kid.

Come on, open up.
Six, seven, eight, nine, ten,

- 1 1, 12, 13, 14.
- One, two, three, four, five,

- six, seven, eight...
RENZULLl: 1 7, 18...

You'll do fine.

ERlN: I just hope I don't
get emotional during my speech.

FRANK: You won't.
- Are you okay?

Oh, I'll be fine.

- Hi, J.T.
HOGAN: Miss Boyle.

How about I go inside?

Save me a dance.

- What do we got?
- Apparent drug overdose.

Four St. Angelus students at a party.

Three boys, age 1 7,
and a 1 6-year-old girl.

The, uh, boys were DOA
at the scene.

Girl was resuscitated
and transported to Columbia Pres.

What kind of poison
are we talking about?

We don't know, sir.
It's a new one to us.

Some kind of designer drug
called M-Cat.

Do we know the source?

Well, we're chasing it down now,

Setting up operations
in suspected buy areas.

Conducting full enforcement

Debriefing partygoers
and the survivor.

- How's she doing?
- Stabilized.

She has a Reagan to thank.

Jamison, the first on scene,
saved her life.

- What else?
- That's it.

There's something else.

No, it's just that you're with your family.
I mean, you're entitled to a life.

You did right, J.T.
The press will be all over this.

- Keep me updated.
HOGAN: You got it, boss.

- Hey, Alyson, how are you feeling?
- Who are you?

I'm Jamie, the police officer
who brought you here.

Police officer?

Yeah, I just wanted to see
how you were.

- Well, my head's fuzzy.
- Side effect of Narcan, I think. Uh...

That's what they gave you
to counteract the drugs in your system.

- Drugs?
- You don't remember?

Where's Billy?

Did Billy get sick too?

- Maybe I better get a doctor.
- Where is he? Is he okay?

Why won't you tell me where he is?

I'm sorry.

Oh, my God.



What's going on?

She was asking
what happened to her boyfriend.

- So you told her?
- I didn't know what to say.

Wait outside.

Alyson, hi.

I'm Detective Curatola,
this is Detective Reagan.

Honey, I know you're really upset,

but I need to ask you
a few questions, though.

This isn't real.

Look, Alyson, we'll need to ask you
some questions about the party.

We gotta figure out
how this happened.

Do you recognize this?


Billy said it was a new kind of drug.

It was supposed to make you
feel good.

Do you know
where Billy got the stuff from?

I don't know anything
about any of this.

I don't do drugs.
It was just this once.

You're a lucky young lady.

What happened to the other guys
that Billy gave it to?

- They didn't make it.
- Oh, no.

Alyson, listen, it is very important
that we figure out

where this stuff came from so we can
stop other people from dying.

Do you understand?

Hey, look, can you tell us anything?

Did you hear any names?
Did anyone say anything to you?

Nobody said anything to me.
They don't talk to me.

Caitlin and the others...

Billy's friends, not mine.

Look, your mom's on her way.
You're gonna be all right.

Nice work, kid. Our only witness,
you gotta turn on the waterworks?

I'm sorry, Danny.


It's fine. She would have found out
eventually anyway.

Sometimes, you're damned if you do,
you're damned if you don't.

I heard about what you did.
You saved her life.

- Good job, kid.
- What happened, they just OD'd?

We don't know yet.
We have to wait on the tox screens

back from the deceased
and the residue on the baggies, so...

Frigging designer drugs
on the streets nowadays.

It's a wonder these kids know
what they're putting up their noses.

We have to lean hard on every kid
at the party to find the dealer.

I'll start with the one
who threw the party.


In the city alone.

Mom, we're not alone,
there's six of us.

I told you, Congee Village for Chinese
and then the movie.

What, you can't see this movie
in Park Slope?

It's at the Film Forum. It's a classic.

We'll take the F train straight home.

I bet Dad would let me.

Okay, this is me loosening my reins.

You can go,
but you better come back in one piece

or I swear I will kill you myself.

Also, the dad bit,
that will never help your cause.

- Do you understand?
- Fine.

And I promise I'll text you
every step of the way.



Oh, my God.

What is it?

Three seniors from St. Angelus
OD'd on drugs last night.

I know kids that go there.

My daughter does not do drugs.

Well, we know she didn't take
those drugs because she's not dead.

Now, Caitlin, can you tell us who
Billy Romero bought the drugs from?

- No, she can't.
- How about you let her answer, sir?

No, I can't.

How do you think
this makes me feel?

Three people died in my apartment.

- I have to live with that.
- You're upsetting her. It's not her fault.

Look, if you wanna play the
blame game, I'd hold you responsible.

I trust Caitlin.

This started out
as an innocent get-together.

- Those kids took advantage of her.
- Kids, okay?

That's the operative word
in the sentence, "kids."

There's a reason
that the legal age of majority is 1 8.

Now, you're an adult, act like it.
Let her help us with the investigation.

I've done nothing illegal.

A 16-year-old can be left alone
in a secure building.

- Are we done here?
JACKlE: No, we're not done here.

Caitlin, I'm going to ask you
one more time.

- Where did Billy get that drug?
- I said I don't know.

Caitlin, when your dad said
that you're 16

and you could be home alone now
because you're a big girl,

well, that also means
that we can charge you as an adult.

- And we can arrest you right now.
- What?

- Are you trying to scare her?
- No, nothing like that.

But when we cuff her and bring her
down to Central Booking...

- Oh, this is outrageous.
DANNY: No, it's the law, sir, okay?

Everybody at that party
could be charged

for possession
of an illegal substance.

So just be glad you were away
on business or I'd arrest you.

Now, sit your ass down.

Caitlin, you still say
you don't know anything?

Who sold Billy that drug?

- Someone at school.
- Who? I need a name.

I don't know who.
I think they buy it at school.

But I'm telling you the truth,
I don't do drugs.

That's good for now.

Oh, boy,
I'm having flashbacks already.

Surprised I didn't lose nerve endings,
the amount of times

Father Peter whacked me
across the knuckles with a ruler.

Hmm, well, you're looking
at the recipient

of the Christian Leadership Award,
four years running.

Yeah? Wow.

I would have pegged you
for a goody two-shoes.

Well, until I discovered boys, that is.

Then I was hiking up
my uniform skirt.

And Sister Beatrice
caught me one day

and she said the shorter the skirt,
the longer the confession.

Wait, now I get to imagine
that plaid uniform all day.

Oh, don't listen to him, ladies.

I know what you people face out there
in the city, but this is St. Angelus.

All right? None of our students
are dealing hard drugs.

- Do you any idea who this person is?
- That's what we're here to find out.

That's not to say
that some incidents of marijuana

- and alcohol use don't occur.
- Okay.

But Vice Principal Hoffman here
is trained and she knows the signs.

I test if I see fit
and get those few proper help.

Great, we're still gonna need

to see your surveillance videos,

Well, we don't have any.
It's not in our budget.

And the Lord handles surveillance here
at St. Angelus.

Well, you got me on that one,

Father Leo, look,
we'd love to talk to the students,

but we can't do it
without the parents' permission

and you have 450 students here,
so we simply don't have the time.

But the school lockers here
are on school property.

So we'd like to take a look at them,
with your permission, of course.

You wanna search
everyone's locker?

- Pretty much.
- That's such an invasion of privacy.

Well, three kids are dead, Father.

I mean,
if you wanna cause an epidemic--

Of course not.

But I don't have the authority
to sanction the opening of lockers.

- Father--
LEO: There's rules here.

And I need to go
through proper channels.

- Talk to my superior.
- Okay.

Well, you talk to your higher power
and I'll talk to mine.

It's a long way from St. Brendan's.

For both of us.

Well, this isn't a social visit,
is it, Francis?

The police need access

to St. Angelus High School,
Your Excellency.

Please understand, commissioner,

giving permission to open
those lockers has ramifications.

They more important
than seeing that more kids don't die?

Our parents are protective
of their children.

If we open the lockers
and treat everyone as a suspect,

there will be outrage, and rightly so.

You are criminal by association
by the mere fact

that you attended school
at St. Angelus.

We need to find out
who is manufacturing this drug

and seize it.

We need to find out who else has it.

If we open the lockers,

how many parents
will pull their kids from St. Angelus?

Then there will be
one less Catholic high school.

I don't wanna have to get
a court order.

It will get out and once again,

the Church will appear
to be uncooperative.

With respect,
you can't afford to be seen

to be sweeping another problem
under the rug.

I'll call Father Leo.

Thank you, Father.

God bless you, Francis.

Thank you.

I need all the help I can get.


Locker 300,
another 20 sack of weed.

That would be Tom Ryder.

He's in English class, Room 5C.


Looks like we found something.
Okay, okay.

Let's see what you got in here.

What do we got in here?
What do we got?

Yeah? In here?

Good boy. Good boy.

All right, all right, all right.

All right, what do we got here?


False bottom.


Good boy.

What do you think, Father, nice?

Locker 291, who's that?

Wayne Foster, Algebra, Room 7A.

We're looking for Wayne Foster.

Whoa, whoa, whoa.

Stop, hey.

Didn't anyone ever teach you
flight's an admission of guilt?

- Aah!
- Be glad you can still feel something.

Three other people are dead.

Yeah, okay. Make that five.

We got two more ODs.
DOA at Astoria General.

Imagine that.

Wayne, you're looking at three counts
of criminally negligent homicide,

not to mention
the countless drug charges.

You understand
what that means, kid?

Yeah, a lot of prison time for you.

Now, the only way I can help you

is if you help me
get this poison off the streets.

I need the name of your supplier

and the names of any kids
you sold the M-Cat to.

Wayne, give me a name.

I didn't sell it to Billy.
Not this time at least.

- Okay, who did?
- I don't know.


Okay, then who sold it to you?

I don't know his name.

- I never met him.
- Wayne, where did you get the stuff?

Through Turbo-List. Anyone can.

You bought it on the lnternet?

Okay. Come show me how.

"Adventures of Radar Mouse,

Number 7, Timely Comics,
1 949, best offer."

- What does that mean?
- Well, it's bogus.

Timely Comics only published
through number four,

and that was in 1946.

Who knew?

- The numbers are the code.
DANNY: Uh-huh.

Forty-nine minus 46.

So 300 divided by four,
which means he has 75 bags available

- at 1 7 a pop.
DANNY: Okay, okay, okay.

Listen, the math, you're killing me, kid.
Let's make an order, all right?

How about $500?

And how long does something like this
usually take till he gets back to you?


- Oh, okay, that answers that question.

"Sending parcel post to Chelsea.
c.o.d., $4."

Parcel post means
the mail slot in Chelsea.

Four dollars means
it'll be waiting for me by 4 p.m.

Yeah, except he'll be waiting for us.
Good work, kid.

Did you get high
in your crazy high school days?

- What kind of question is that?
- An honest one.

Yeah, in college. I dated this bassist.

He was in a grunge band, he was hot,
and he liked to smoke pot, so...

So he's hot so you just did it too,

Yeah, we always pushed boundaries
back then.

Like the kids today? Oof.

The boundaries they're pushing,
though, so much more dangerous.


Wayne Foster, what a coincidence,
he's a friend of ours.

I'm just messenger.

What's in the envelope?

- I just messenger, senorita.
- Yeah, just messenger, yeah.

We get it.
Don't kill the messenger, right?

Okay, tell you what.

Tell us where this came from,
we won't kill you.


OSCAR: Bike shop.
DANNY: The bike store, huh?


Hey, stop!


David Carvell, you're under arrest.
Come here and cuff this mutt.

What for? I import quality bicycles.

Yeah, well, you should have used one,
you might have got away.

Are you all right?


Reagan, check this out.

This guy Carvell
has got a major drug lab in the back.

Lot of high-end bicycles.
Hey, keep him down there.

Back here.

Oh, look what we have here.


Look at that.

- I guess the cat's out of the bag, huh?
- Mm-hm.

- Gonna bag that?
- Gonna put the cat back in the bag.

- All right.
- Okay.

Five dead kids. You know, scumbags
like you, you really make my blood boil.

What'd you lace them with?
Arsenic, strychnine?

You have your facts wrong, detective.
My brand is pure.

Mm. Looks like pure poison to me.

I'm a businessman.
Consistency brings repeat customers.

My brand is popular
because it's reliable.

- Okay.
- Test it, you'll see.

Oh, we're gonna test it, believe me.
Now get him out of my face.

Looking at a spike in gadget thefts

on the subway since that new PDA
came out, but we're on it, boss.

Tomorrow's press conference
has been pushed to 1 300 hours,

and then
there's the renaming dedication

of the Police Athletic League
boxing gym.

You mentioned wanting to wear
the, uh, uniform for that.

What about M-Cat?

We're waiting for lab results
to come back.

Well, they have.

- Hey.
DANNY: Hey, there he is.

- Ronnie, two pints.
RONNlE: You got it, Danny.

Sydney's got dinner waiting,
so l, uh--

Hey, just one beer
with your brother, all right?

The old man always said
to celebrate your victories.

You saved a girl's life.
Feel good about it.

We got a major drug dealer
off the street.

- To the good guys.
JACKlE: Hey.

- Hey, Jackie.
JACKlE: Hello, hello.

- Remember Jamie?
- Yes, of course.

- Hey.
- Hey.

Okay, so I have bad news
and worse news.

Give me the less bad news.

All right, the ODs in Queens,
meth heads. There's no connection.

- What a world when that's a relief.
- Exactly.

Uh, and the tox screen came back
on our dead boys.

It was a lethal dose
of potassium chloride.

I'm not really a science geek.

It's a common chemical
used in fertilizers and water softeners.

It's not used in recreational drugs.

And they also use
on death row inmates

for lethal injections.

My three months
on the lnnocence Project.


Well, the ME said
that a high enough concentration

of potassium chloride mixed
with the sedative effect of heroin

can stop a heart like that:

Carvell's a real son of a bitch, huh?

Yeah, and that's the worse news.
It's not Carvell.

The lab tested the M-Cat
that came from Carvell's shop

and tested the M-Cat
from Wayne Foster's sample,

it was heroin,
methedrone and baby laxative.

Neither one had potassium chloride.

Great, Carvell told the truth.

All right, so we got one packet
of M-Cat with potassium chloride.

If Carvell didn't put it in there,
who did?

The only thing I'm thinking is maybe
Billy wanted a bigger high and put it in.

Maybe somebody else there
looking to kill.

If that's true,
we've been coming at this all wrong.



If they did, then who was the target?
Was it Billy Romano, Alyson?

You know, one of the friends,
all four of them?

The only person we can ask
at this point is Alyson Duvitz.

We're gonna go ask Alyson now
because she just got run down

on Riverside Drive, going for a jog.

Ronnie, put it on my tab.

- You buy next time, kid.
- Yeah.



DANNY: How's she doing?
OFFlCER: She's one lucky girl.

She turned and saw it just in time.
Car clipped her and took off.

Alyson, Detective Reagan,
my partner, Detective Curatola.

- Met you at the hospital, remember?
- Mm.

Can you tell me what happened?

I don't know.

I was running, trying to clear my head,
get everything out of my system.

Something made me turn back,
there was a car coming at me.

Did you see the driver?

The headlights were in my eyes.

And how about the car?
Can you make out the model or make?

It was medium-sized,
uh, dark color.

- It wasn't an SUV or anything.
- New York license plate?

It all happened so fast.

I think I did see a bumper sticker
from my school, though.

- I don't know, I could be imagining it.
DANNY: Okay.

Look, Alyson, we think that somebody
may have deliberately poisoned Billy

and his friends and you too.

From what you're telling us now,
they tried to hurt you again.

Oh, my God,
this can't be happening.

Look, is there anyone
you can think of who may have wanted

to do something like this
to Billy, to you?

- Caitlin hates me, I know that.
- Because of Billy?

She said that she broke up with him

and he said
it was the other way around.

- And you said she hates you.
- Yeah, well, I'm all over her hate book.

Hate book?
Is that what it sounds like?

Some of the girls have them.

They're, like, journals
of everyone they hate.

I saw it once in Chem class.

There was some really mean stuff
about Billy too.

And Caitlin took Chemistry as well.

Her, me and Billy
were in the same class.

It's hard to believe that Caitlin Breyer
is capable of murder.

She can be difficult, moody, but--

Look at this.

- Look at this.
- What's that?

Just found, uh, some mysterious
white powder in Caitlin's lab station.

Not in anyone else's.

- You know what it is?
- No.

You know they can do that
at the lab.

Yeah, I know. I couldn't help myself.

JACKlE: Ooh.

JACKlE: Potassium chloride.
- How do you know that?

Potassium turns violet
when over heat.

DANNY: Somebody's
Catholic school education paid off.

- By the way, hate book.
- Mm.

I found it in Caitlin's locker.

Wait till you get a load of this.

"l wish that bitch was dead,
her and Billy both.

I'd like to set them both on fire.

- Watch them burn and beg for water."
- Lovely.

Teenage girls love to vent.

It's second nature to them,
like breathing.

That doesn't mean
she'd actually kill someone.

Right. So she didn't mean
any of this stuff in this book, huh?

Read this yet, Dad? Good stuff.

Well, I loved Billy.
I would never really kill him.

Okay, what about with Alyson?
She had Billy and you wanted him.

No, I didn't want Billy anymore.
I dumped him, okay?

That's not what we heard.

All Billy ever wanted to do
was have sex and get high.

- And it got worse.
- You two had sex?


Well, he kept wanting me
to do this drug with him.

He said it would bring us closer.

I mean, I'm sorry,
but if you're dating me,

you don't need chemicals.

- Mm.
DANNY: Of course not.


And then I found out
that he was sneaking behind my back.

- With Alyson.
- No, this is before Alyson.

He even admitted to it,
but he wouldn't tell me who it was.

And I didn't care anymore,
anyway, but--

So he had a secret lover.

Okay, let's talk a little bit more
about Alyson's accident, okay?

Okay. You already asked me.
I said I didn't do it.

All right, so where were you
between 6 and 7 last night?

- Caitlin has Pilates on Friday night.
- Dad, Dad.

With the questions,
let the girl answer.

Well, actually, I didn't go.

I went shopping in SoHo.

You lied about that too.

Can you verify that?
Can anyone verify that?

Do you have any receipts
from your shopping trip?

No, but I tweeted the whole time.

You can ask Sara and Rachel.
They'll tell you everywhere I went.

But if you have an account, you could
go back and follow me yourself.

You can follow her on Twitter.
She told you to follow her on Twitter.

- We got the hate book, we got motive.
- Yeah. Yeah.

- Alibi from last night is very thin.
- We'll check out her alibi.

We'll squeeze her friends, if her story
doesn't pan out, then we nail her.

That's why I don't have kids.

LlNDA: It's a nice piece?
FRANK: No, it's good.

You know they say you can get hooked
on heroin after one try.

- How do you protect kids from that?
- Shackles.

LlNDA: Hmm.
- You think she's kidding.

- We learned about drugs in school.
- Good.

- Tell him what your grandpa did.
- Oh, you knew about that, huh?

- I'm your father.
- Yeah.

I did my own version
of Scared Straight!

with your Dad and your Uncle Joe.

I took them down to The Tombs
and locked them in.

What's The Tombs?

- Jail.
DANNY: It's a jail.

And it was full drunk guys
who were passed out

and puking all over the place,

and me and Joe--
What was Joe, about 8 back then?

FRANK: Yeah.
- Scared out of our minds.

I told them that's where people go
when they do drugs.

- And you guys had all the fun.
DANNY: What?

Dad did the same thing to me
when I turned 1 1.

- He did?
- And how old are you, Jack?


Ooh. Ha-ha-ha.

He's not going in The Tombs.

You know, a lot of people think
drugs should be made legal.

- Yeah, a lot of crazy people.
- What?

It is in California, medical marijuana.

Ah, well, that's California,
what do you expect?

- Well, it's not legal here.
- And for good reason.

Drugs make your teeth fall out.

I'm just saying
there's no scientific proof

that some drugs
are more harmful than say, alcohol.

There's an argument
to be made for legalization.

Well, there's a stupid argument
for legalization.

We just watched three kids die.

And you,
you know kids who knew these kids.

If drugs were regulated like alcohol,
standards for quality control,

deciding who can sell it
and to whom.

- And to whom?
- Shut up, Danny.

You think there's gonna be
less junkies on the street

if heroin suddenly becomes legal.

Where do you get these theories?
Sit around your dorm smoking pot.

And you just come up
with this crap?

At least users
would know what they're getting.

Pushers and dealers would be out.
Maybe these kids would be alive.

- See?
- I doubt it.

My Uncle Emmett went blind

drinking a bad batch of bathtub gin
in Prohibition.

- What?
- Excuse me.

- True story.
JAMlE: Right.

Prohibition gave rise
to bootleggers like Al Capone.

We should be able to do
what we want. It's a free country.

- That's a little simplistic, honey.
- No, it's not.

I'm just saying
it's a complicated issue.

You think I don't know that?

- You never take me seriously.
- Honey--

No, I just won't have an opinion
from now on, okay?

Excuse me.

Oh, dear.

- And that is why I'm glad I have boys.
DANNY: Amen.

I got this one.

Can I have her chicken?

I'm sorry, Grandpa.

Hey, you made some good points.

She treats me like a child.

Oh, you're not mad at her
because she changed her mind

about letting you go into town.

Nobody else could go either
after what happened at that party.


She never talks to me.

I mean, really talks.

Your Grandpa Henry
ever tell you this theory

about the Reilly side of the family
being emotionally constipated?

You know, the other night,
when you were going to the gala,

she was crying
the whole way over to your house

and she wouldn't tell me why.

Well, maybe she's trying
to be strong for you right now,

knowing how upset you were
about the divorce.


It sucks.

You know what your mom
was doing that night?


It was her first night as the president
of the Children's Fund.


Did you know that your grandma,
her mom,

was president of the same charity
before she died?

Maybe your mom
was thinking about her, missing her.

You were thinking about her too?

I was.

But I was trying to be strong
for your mom.

Just like you need your mom,
your mom needs you.

To look out for her,
to understand her, and love her.

Life isn't fair.


But you can be.

- Good morning.
- Oh, come here, check this out.

This Twitter thing, it not only records
the times of your tweets,

but it tracks your location
with a GPS.

Look at this. I had our tech guys
put her coordinates

into our mapping system.

"6:07 p.m.,

OMG, skirt at H&M to die 4."

JACKlE: Mm-hm.
DANNY: Okay.

"6:10 p.m.

- Saw girl in fringed top, so last year.

This girl tweets every five seconds.

- I know.
- "6:12 p.m., Fro-yo for dinner." Okay.

Okay, so her last tweet
was at Prince and Broadway

and it's at the exact same time
that Alyson Duvitz

was hit with the car, miles away.

Assuming it was Caitlin
that was sending the tweets,

who ran down Alyson?

What about that secret lover
Caitlin was talking about?

If she even exists.

Is it worth going back to school
one more time and taking a look?

Well, whoever it was,
they tried to kill Alyson Duvitz twice.

So, what do they say,
third time's a charm?

Let's hope not.

Janitor said both sides of the street

are reserved
for St. Angelus personnel only.

JACKlE: It's worth a shot.
DANNY: Well, maybe it is.

Parents are calling,
asking what you're doing.

Well, you can tell
the concerned parents

we're investigating a triple homicide
at their children's school.

And also a hit-and-run
on Alyson Duvitz.

By examining cars?

Yeah, in fact,
we're looking for a dark sedan.

Would you happen to know
who may have

a St. Angelus bumper sticker
on their car?

Well, anyone. You can get them
for a dollar in the supply room.

But the way things are going, l, ahem,
won't be able to give them away.

Yeah, it's tough stuff, Father.

- Thank you.
- You have work to do.

And I've got a school to run.

Hey, Jackie, look at this.

A dark sedan.

- No bumper sticker, though.
- Well, that's just it.

Looks like somebody removed a sticker
here and ran this car through a wash.

Yeah, like a hit-and-run
trying to cover his tracks.

- Yeah, call it in.
- Yeah, Curatola.

Yeah, um, check a New York plate
for me, ABZ-1873.

Oh, looks like somebody
scrubbed this fender here

trying to get rid of
some light green paint.

The car is registered
to Vice Principal Carol Hoffman.

Father, Father.
Can we ask you a question?

What could you tell us
about Vice Principal Hoffman?

The students love her.
I get no complaints.

Despite the fact that as vice principal,
she's often called upon

to mete out discipline
and resolve disputes.

Did she ever have any
disciplinary issues with Billy Romero?

- Not that I'm aware of.
- lnteractions we should know about?

Well, he can thank her
for not flunking out sophomore year.

- How so?
- He was failing Science.

- She tutored him.
- Tutored him in Science?

She was a chemistry teacher
before I promoted her.


Thanks for, uh, letting us take another
look, Miss Hoffman. We appreciate it.

I could be more help if I knew
what you were looking for.

Well, actually, uh,
we're not looking for anything.

We just wanted to ask you
a few questions.

Why don't you have a seat?

I really should be getting back
to my office.

Oh, it won't take long.

So Father Leo says
that, uh, you taught Chemistry here.

Before I became vice principal.

Oh. And Billy Romero
was one of your students.

Good student?

- Average.
- Average.

Do you always give A's out
to your average students?

He did some extra credit.

Extra credit? Oh, boy,
I've never heard it called that before.

Miss Hoffman,
you're an intelligent woman.

I think you know what we're getting at
with these questions.

I'm going to go get Father Leo.

No, no, no. Sit down, please, really.

You see, it was you who tried
to run down Alyson Duvitz with a car,

and it was you who planted
the potassium chloride

in Caitlin's lab station,
thinking it would throw us off.

- That's a lie.
- What was it? Hmm?

You couldn't find somebody
your own age to have sex with

- so you picked a 1 7 year old?
- Shut your mouth.

I know, I know.
You're needy, right?

Is that your problem? You're clingy?

He was so disgusted with himself
that he had to take drugs

just to have sex with you, is that it?

He loved me, and I loved him.

He didn't love you, okay?

The fact is that he couldn't stand
the sight of you

and he wanted to get as far away
from you as possible.

I begged him.
I begged him not to leave me.

I told him
he was making a big mistake.

So if you couldn't have him,
then no one could?

He wouldn't even look at me.

He wouldn't talk to me.

So you decided to give him and his
girlfriend a going-away present, hmm?

What, did you just get lucky
and get the other two kids by chance?

I didn't think he'd share it.


You don't know what it's like
to have somebody

just to be with somebody.

I didn't need to see him all the time,
just once in a while.


Carol Hoffman, you're under arrest

for the murder of Billy Romero,
Mekhi Allen, Justin Kaiser,

and the attempted murder
of Alyson Duvitz.

Have things gotten worse,

or am I just nostalgic
for a time that never existed?

A little bit of both, I think.


Occurs to me
we both deal with good and evil.

And human frailty.

They've got Miss Hoffman
on suicide watch at Bellevue.

Poor creature.

I feel responsible we let
an unbalanced woman into our school.

Heal the wounded,
bind up those who are bruised

and reclaim the sinners.

The Franciscan motto
above my door at St. Brendan's.

- Easy to say, harder to live by.
- Yeah.

I talked to the cardinal.

He's agreed
to let me hold a press conference.

No more sweeping things
under the rug.

You may need divine intervention.

The press will be more interested
in creating heat than shedding light.

If you'll have me,
I would like to stand with you, Father,

just as you've always been there
for the Reagans.

Thank you, Francis.

Thank you.

Hi. It's me.

We're in the kitchen.

Rossellini dumped an identity theft
on my lap

as I was trying to make my escape.

I'm sorry that I missed dinner.

You didn't miss dinner.

What is all this?

Pops and Grandpa and l
made dinner.

Eggplant Parmesan,
yams, arugula salad.

- And for dessert, red velvet cupcakes.
- Ooh.

Although, full disclosure,
we bought those.

All of my favorites.

It was Nicky's idea.

Thank you, sweetie.

Come on, before it gets cold.

Well, this all looks delicious.

The eggplant Parmesan?

Way harder
than I thought it was gonna be.

Yeah, dipping the slices in the egg
and getting all the flour to stick,

it can be tricky.


To Grandma.

- To Grandma.
- To Mom.

To Mary.


Thank you, Lord, for these blessings
which we are about to receive

through your bountiful hands, amen.
