Blue Bloods (2010–…): Season 2, Episode 3 - Critical Condition - full transcript

Jamie is pleased to be teamed up with an academy friend, whom he can teach a lot about human nature. The Reagans soon realize a bank-robber, who gets trapped unlike his accomplices and takes a hostage, knows police lingo and procedure too well not to be former colleague Bill Flood, and work out he was once on Frank's top-secret SCI crack team, but freaked over a family drama.

Better not go shooting
with your brothers anymore.

You'll show them up.

They need to be put in their place
from time to time.

- You still outshoot us all, though.
- Well, targets don't shoot back.

You miss the job, don't you?

What I probably miss is the idea,
but not the reality.

So rumor has it
you're getting out more often.

You seeing anybody?

- Who ratted me out?
- I have my sources.

- Mm-hm. Nicky?
- She doesn't want her mom

to be lonely.

The only time I felt lonely
is when I was married to her father.

And how is your ex-husband?


What's the matter? You nervous?

- I've been through worse than this.
- Yeah, right.

Nervous is fine.
Keeps you on your toes.

But if you're scared,
we have a problem.

Let's go.

All right, before we hit the streets,
let's say hi to our new cop here,

Officer Louisa Sosa,
who made 72 collars her rookie year.

I guess that could
even be a new record.

- It is.
RENZULLl: There you have it.

She joins us from the two-nine.
How about it?


Okay, be careful out there today.

OFFlCER: Let's do it.
RENZULLl: All right.

Oh, hey, Reagan.
Been a change in plans.

You ride with Sosa.

You guys
are running bingo bags today.

Reagan, nice to see you.

- How you doing?
RENZULLl: You two know each other?

- Academy.
SOSA: Academy.

Nice, a reunion.
You could work together and catch up.

I want you both in plainclothes.

And you get her up to speed,
okay, college boy?

- Okay, you got it, sarge.
RENZULLl: All right.

So how's married life
with the Harvard honey?

Oh, it didn't quite have
the fairy-tale ending.

- Count your blessings.
- Oh.

- Well, that's two surprises.
- I'm single. What else?

You're still in the bag.

I figured Daddy would have you
commanding a detective squad.

I turned it down. Hoping to work
bingo bags with you someday.

- I'm glad that worked out for you.
- Mm-hm.

- So, what's bingo bags?
- Great way to ruin somebody's day.

Come on. Let's get changed.

MORAN: People, just need a few more
minutes of your time.

Then we'll be out of your lives.

Anybody moves, it'll be the last thing
you do on this earth.

You got something you wanna say,

Do as he says.

MORAN: Hey, almost done back there?
BlLLY: I'm coming. I'm coming.


MAN 1:
Hey, let's go, let's go.

WOMAN 2: Move it.
MAN 2: Now, come on.

MAN 1:
Let's go, let's go.


Help me, somebody, please.


BAKER: You have a briefing
on the new impact zone deployment,

the Borough Presidents' meeting,
then your train leaves for Washington.

I printed out your remarks for
the Senate hearing on gun violence.

FRANK: Did the report come in
on the shooting at Rockaway?

BAKER: lt'll be here for you to review
on the train to D.C.,

and DCPl should be here.

Another smiling face.

We have a botched bank robbery

that's morphed
into a hostage situation.

Baker, cancel the Washington trip.
I can testify some other time.

It's a great country, isn't it?

A mick flatfoot from Brooklyn
gets invited to stand

before the most august body in
the land, and you weren't subpoenaed.

Thanks for the perspective.
What else?

Danny caught the case.

Garrett, it has been a decade

since I was in the business
of assigning detectives.

The tabloids will make a meal of it.

Then it's small potatoes.

I have no control
over who gets these cases.

They don't buy it.



COP 1: On for three.
COP 2: And to the left.

Left, flank left.

COP 3:
Yes, sir.

It's a real junkie-with-a-note robbery.

They compromised
the alarm system,

they knocked out the video feeds,

then they bypassed
the electronic vault lock.

- Have any idea how big the crew is?
- Three perps.

According to witnesses,
two of them bolted.

Their van is gone.
One of them was shot.

- By who?
- The customer.

The bank manager says it was
a diamond dealer, licensed to carry.

He, in turn, was shot for his effort.

Is he alive?

Based on what witnesses say,
we believe so.

JACK: Hey, captain.
- Jack Condo, one of our negotiators.

- Regular Dog Day Afternoon here?
- Oh, yeah.

Do you have any information
on the guy inside?

No, nothing, Danny.
He's not responding.

TARU's capturing the phone lines.
If he calls out, he's only gonna get us.

We've got a command center
setting up out back.

Meanwhile, we got the place
on lockdown.

We got an entry team ready to roll.

Snipers in position.
Ready to line up a shot.

Unless I can talk him out first.

- Either that or I lay him out.
- While you two figure that out,

we got two desperados
running around town with guns.

Can you keep us posted
on information you get

from the inside?
It could help us find these guys.

- Sure thing.
- Thanks, guys.

JACKlE: Hey.
- Hey.

We got a description of the van
and a partial plate.

Check this out. Came from a security
camera in a building next door.

Mask and gloves on.
It's hard to make anything out.

- Is that a tattoo?
JACKlE: I think so.

If we blow it up,
we can see what it says.

- All right, let's try and get--
WOMAN: Help! Help!

- He's got a gun! He's got a gun!
DANNY: Come on.

- Hold it! Hold it!
WOMAN: There's blood everywhere.

DANNY: What's going on?
Come here. Come here.

WOMAN: You'll see. He's in the back.
JACKlE: Okay.

Where is he?
Where is he with the gun? Gun?

Back. In the back.

Well, now we're down
to hunting one mutt.

DANNY: Yeah. He died with a gun
in his hands. His mother will be proud.

- What, you know this guy?
- Yeah, Vinny Vario.

From the West Side. Been pulling
heists since he was 10 years old.

- You know who he works with?
- I know somebody who does.

You sit tight here,
feed me anything that happens.

- I'm gonna make a date.
- Yeah.

Wonderful. This is my date.

This important?
I got tickets for the ballet.

Bumped into a friend of yours.

He looks like crap.

- Oh. He actually looks better dead.
- He had a little mishap at the bank.

Any idea what he was up to?
Who he was working with?

He came to me
maybe two weeks ago,

said he was looking
to put a crew together.

- Why'd he come to you?
- Wanted to talk me out of retirement.

Don't give me a heads up? Let me
know something might be going down?

Crime prevention is your bailiwick,
detective, not mine.

And besides,
I ain't got no crystal ball.

At least 20 jobs get planned
for every one that happens.

- Did any names come up?
- No, no names.

He did mention the guy that brought
him the job was new to the racket.

- Vario was working with an amateur?
- That's the way it sounded to me.

Looks like that came back
to bite him in the ass.

- You're welcome.
- Yeah.



You had to be a hero.

- Please, I need to go to a hospital.
- Let me see.

All right.

Aren't you gonna answer that?


Come out of there.

I'm not gonna hurt you. Come on.

Please, I don't want any trouble.

- Get over by him.
- He needs to go to a hospital.

What, are you a doctor
or a bank clerk?

- I dropped out of nursing school.
- Good, see what you can do for him.


Hey, thanks for answering.

Okay. Gotta go.

I'm Jack.
How's it going in there, huh?

- We're getting ready to play pinochle.
- Okay.

Can I get you anything?
A deck of cards?

How about $5 million in 20s
and a helicopter?

Okay, so you want money
and transportation.

So how does it go? You give me
20 bucks and a skateboard

and tell me you gave me
everything I asked?

Save it.

Look, we have a situation here.
I'm just trying to help you resolve it.

At least tell me your name.

Call me lshmael.

- All right, now what?
- It's 98 in the shade today.

Turn off the air conditioning,
decrease his comfort level.

Then I keep dialing.

Last one of these took 28 hours.

So the decoy leaves a bag
with valuables in it on a bench.

And if someone comes along
and takes it,

we collar them for petty larceny?

That's about it. Theory is,
people committing smaller crimes

also commit the big ones
or know people who do.

Yeah, broken windows,
blah, blah, blah, but I love it.

Yeah, I figured you would.

You got a problem with this,

Just that it's borderline entrapment.

You take something that doesn't
belong to you, you're a perp.

Or did you miss that class
at the Academy?

- Two step, you know what I'm saying?
- Yo.

All right.

Come on. Come on.

JAMlE: Here we go.
MAN 1: Yo, man.

There is a purse in here, man.

- Like shooting fish in a barrel.
- Yeah, hold on a beat, Dirty Harry.

First roll the scooter by,
give them a chance to turn the bag in.

No way these hippity-hop mopes
turn it in.

They think they won the lottery.

MAN 1:
Hey, yo, officer.

Yeah, I found this.

OFFlCER: Where did you find it?
- Right there on the bench.

OFFlCER: Just sitting there?
MAN 1: Sitting there. I--

- Damn.
- What do you know?

MAN 1: Take it in?
MAN 2: Yo, do we get a reward, or no?

Captain, I have a shot.

Stand by.



Why don't you just tell them
what you want?

Because what I want,
they can't give it to me.

Yeah, well, you keep this up
and we're gonna lose him.

Hey, friend.
You wanna turn the AC back on?

I'm worried about the injured hostage,

You send him out
and we'll talk about air conditioning.

Yeah, don't worry about him.
He's definitely not likely.

The round went through his shoulder.
All meat, no bones, no arteries.

You're not a doctor, lshmael.
You can't be sure.

Just turn on
the damn air conditioning.

Are you sure that's what he said?

Yeah, "not likely."
Like in not likely to die.

Ever hear anyone say that
but a cop?

Only on this job do we use a negative
to describe a positive.

All right, so he's using police jargon.

The negotiator too. He's all over him,
like he knew the script or something.

Right, like he'd been on the job.
And then there's what my C.I. told me.

- What did he say?
- He said that the dead perp, Vario,

was hooking up
with a guy new to the business.

You know, I hate to say this, but...

You can say it. Our perp is a cop.

Unit three on me.

lshmael, I just got some news.

Now I think we're kind of all
on the same side here.

- Why is that? You a bank robber too?
- No.

But you're on the job, or you were.

Isn't that right?

So we need to work together
to get you out of there in one piece.

That's what you want
and now that's what we want.

MAN: Commissioner, sir.
WOMAN: Commissioner, sir.

As you were.

- Good morning.
- Not so far, it isn't.

Lieutenant, what do we know?

- Sir, we think he may be a cop.
- Based on?

Seems to know the negotiating script
better than any civilian would. Also--

Referred to the hostage as "not likely,"
who besides a cop would do that?

Thinking we should let ESU know
it's one of our own.

We will stick
with standard procedure.

- Jack, would you excuse us a minute?
JACK: Yes, sir.

Just saying,
there's no need to let a cop--

If a priest messes with a kid,
is he any less guilty

- because of his calling?
- No, sir.

Do you respect his bishop if he uses
his position to protect the priest?

- I'm just--
- Danny, whether he is or was a cop

is irrelevant. Right now
he's a bank robber with hostages.

And Jack Condo
is my best hostage negotiator.

- This is his show. Understood?
- Yes, sir.

Excuse me.

They blew up this shot
from the security camera, the tattoo.


- What's bella horrida?
- It's a Latin phrase from Virgil,

bella horrida, horrid wars.

What is it? What?

JACKlE: Everything okay?
- Yeah, don't ask.

Eighth squad found the van.

- All right, let's go.
- Okay.

Baker, I want the rosters
and current status

of every member
of the Special lnvestigative Unit

from 1995 through '99.

- lncluding the CO?
- I was the CO.

DANNY: Okay, so now we got the van.
We just gotta find the missing perp.

Hey. What do you got for us?

OFFlCER: Beautiful day
for a crime scene, detectives.

Sunshine means
people use sun visors.

That's always one place
they never check to wipe for prints.

We pulled a gorgeous thumbprint
right there.

Beautiful. We're in a bit of a hurry.
Can you expedite that for us?

Well, if you get your partner,
bonita, here,

to give me one of those big smiles,
you got a deal.


Hey, Casanova, come on.

- You got anything else for us?
OFFlCER: Oh, yeah.

Check it out. We got this

from the parking lot
of King's General Hospital yesterday.

- Yesterday?
- Van was stolen two days ago

at a lot at Williamsburg.

What, this perp took the van
to the hospital?

Look, if you get the lab to turn
that print around in an hour,

I got two Mets tickets
behind the dugout for you.

Your partner, she come with me?

- Huh?
- You should know better than that.

- Should know better what?
- Never date a girl with a gun.

So you don't have a plan B, do you?

- Don't antagonize him.
- I'm supposed to just sit here and die?

No, it's Vario. V-A-R-l-O, Vario.

No staff by that name.

- What about patients?
- Detective, you know better than that.

Marie, there are lives
at stake here, okay?

So is my career, Danny.



You're kidding me.

All right. Yeah, yeah, great.

Yeah. They found a match
on the thumbprint in the van.

It's a Kevin Moran.
The Mets tickets worked.

Can you check Kevin Moran,


Marie, please.

Wow, do you hear
my stomach growling?

I need to go grab my yogurt.

Helps keep me regular.


JACKlE: Anything?
- No Moran.


We're missing something here,

Okay, Kevin Moran was released
from Wallkill three months ago

after a dime for armed robbery.

His last known address
was in the three-five.

Already checked him out. Negative.

Well, he also had a girlfriend,
Lacy Campisi.

She's worth checking out.

Is there any connection
between Moran and Vario?

Vario's from Manhattan.

Moran was from the ass end
of Queens.

- Vario did banks.
- Yeah, Moran did warehouses.


- Yeah, Dad.
- Do you have any intersection

- on the accomplices?
- So far, nothing.

Well, take another look at
the robbery charges on their rap sheet.

- Who were the arresting officers?
- Let's see.


Flood and...

Flood, William J.

Billy Flood.

- You think?
- I hate to say it, but, yeah.

I talked to his ex-wife.
I may even have a motive.

I'll leave it to you
to hand it over to Condo.

- All right.
- We'll stay in touch.

Who's Billy Flood?

When you were a reporter,
you did that story on my unit.

- Special lnvestigations.
- Yeah.

No one would actually confirm
that it existed.

It did exist.

And Billy Flood
was one of the best men in the unit.

Our guy in the bank
is a Frank Reagan guy?

Not is. Was.

All right, Lacy, this guy, Moran,
he smacks you around,

and yet you're still sitting here
protecting him.

- I haven't seen him for months.
- Right. Okay.

Your neighbor said
there was a lot of arguing

coming from your apartment
this morning. Who was yelling?

I was.
My kid was making a mess again.

You got a kid?

- So you probably won't mind, then.
- Mind what?

If I call my buddy, Paulie.

- Who's Paulie?
- Just Paulie.

- Terminator Paulie.
- Terminator Paulie.

You know what Terminator Paulie
does? He works for the city.

Spends all day terminating
people's parental rights.

What's that got to do with me?

Well, you're gonna be upstate
for hindering prosecution,

so Paulie's gonna get to do
what Paulie does best.

That's right.
By the time you see your kid again,

he'll be growing up
with his new mommy.

- Probably won't even recognize you.
- You can't do that.

Right, we can't do it. But Paulie can.

- Hey, Paulie.
- I don't know where Moran is.

Danny Reagan here. I need a favor.

- Yeah. Look, I got a case for you.
- Wait.

- Yeah.
- Wait, wait.

No, she's sitting right here.

You gotta promise me
he won't get out this time.

Moran is not getting out of prison
unless he leaves in a pine box.

The guy's a psycho.

If he's a psycho,
then help us find him,

and I promise you,
you will never see him again.

Okay. Hey, Paulie,
I'm gonna send her up your way.

- Yeah.
- He came by this morning.

He took all the cash I had.

It was my rent money, the bastard.

I'll get back to you.

All right. Well, do you know where
he would go if he was on the run?

Kept an old convertible
at a chop shop in Brooklyn.

Friend of his runs the place.

You know the address?

It's on Kent Street
by Broadway, I think.

It's right around
where the van was stolen.

REPORTER [ON TV]: We've just
arrived on the scene at the bank

where the hostage situation
is unfolding.

Billy Flood was one of the best.

Your father handpicked him
for his unit.

They were all young, all single,
all expert marksmen.

ERlN: Sounds more like the
Foreign Legion than a police unit.

Well, it was crack cocaine days.
We were fighting a war.

Their job was to go after
the worst of the worst.

They had no set tours,
could use any weapon they wanted.

Basically, it was shoot first
and ask questions later.

And these were the good guys?

The stress got to Flood.
He started drinking.

We sent him to the farm, twice.

Then one day,
in broad daylight, on duty,

he wraps his car
around a pole on 5th Avenue.

- He was drunk?
HENRY: Yeah.

Yeah, drinking on the job
was a huge problem back then.

I had to set an example.

So I terminated him.

I didn't think I had a choice.

But now...

I'm wondering
if I'd handled it differently,

maybe it's the nature channel
we're watching instead.

Sorry I'm late.

What happened?

Somebody die?

Kevin Moran!


This guy Moran could've been
on the move for hours by now.

There's a light on in back.
I'm gonna check it out.

There's a convertible over here.

Thing probably hasn't been on the road
since the Clinton administration.

Kevin Moran!

JACKlE: Reagan!
DANNY: Hold it.

MORAN: I got you.
- Let her go.

I'm not going back to the joint.

- So you decide.
- Decide what?

Whether or not you wanna go to your
partner's funeral three days from now.

Hey, the guy you shot
in the bank is fine.

There's no bodies on you,
so let her go.

Reagan, just shoot the son of a bitch.
Go ahead.

I'm counting to three. One.

- Two.
- All right.

All right.

All right.

- I give up.
- Too late.


JACKlE: Nice shot.
DANNY: It was very therapeutic.

- He didn't put up much of a fight.
- You should've let me hit him.

JAMlE: You might not like it,
but most people do the right thing.

He's mine.

Hey, cowboy.

Police, don't move.

You're a cop, little lady? No problem.


Get down.

I got a gun.

You got him?

Petty larceny and a gun.

Some people, partner,
definitely do the wrong thing.

Stop moving.

- Hey, anything?
- Zippo.

Tried to get him
to let the wounded hostage go.

But, you know, I knew this guy.

- Yeah, I hear he was the real police.
- Yeah, he was.

When bad guys tell ghost stories,

it's SlU they're talking about.
Why don't you let me talk to him?

Come on, Danny. You know
we discourage third-party intervention.

- Let me take care of this.
- I know the protocol.

- Let me do my job. Thank you.
- All right.

- That's his daughter, right?
JACK: Emma's her name.

- Emma, right.
JACK: Yeah, we got it off his ex-wife.

Your father tipped us.
You should probably talk to him.

Yeah, I'll do that.

Why don't you just give up?

There's no way out.

Do you really wanna die?

We're not gonna stop you.


So why did you quit
nursing school?

Because I can't stand
the sight of blood.


Oh, my God. He's going into shock.
We need to get him out of here now!


- Yeah.
- I'm ready to talk

about the injured hostage.

That's a smart move, Billy.
We're gonna send two paramedics in.

And you send in two cops
dressed as EMTs? No.

Billy, Billy, listen. It's Danny Reagan.

Listen, it's me, all right?
Let me come in.

No paramedics. Nobody. Just me.

All right,
let me get the guy out of there.

Come on, it'll make things easier
for you, all right?


I remember Billy Flood from
all the barbecues Dad used to have.

He was handsome.
All the girls used to swoon over him.

Gee, girls falling for a handsome cop.
How could that happen?

I don't think you have to worry that
Danny's gonna start robbing banks.

It's a fine line, cops and robbers.

Most people choose
what side they're on early in life.

Yeah, what I mean is,

even the good guys
have to do awful things.

I just-- I worry about Danny,
Jamie, Frank, all of you.

You spend so much time
with the ugliness of life,

all the violence.

It's gotta scar you.

I think coming from a family like this
makes it easier.

I mean, we can talk about it.
We all get it.

I just see what it does to Danny,
you know?

There are days I wish
he would've stayed in construction.

Don't tell him I said that.

I'm serious.

Let me come in, all right?

Come on, Billy.

Come on, give me a shot.


- Hurry up.
- All right. All right.

Hey, hey, you can't do this.

- He said for me to come in.
- We're gonna lose control.

- We're not gonna lose control.
- Your father said follow procedure.

If I don't go in there,
the guy is gonna die!

Let him go.

All right, captain.

Linda, Erin, get in here.

They're sending Danny in.

- Why are they sending Danny?
- I don't know.

REPORTER: -- where the hostage
situation has been unfolding.

He'd bring his gun in with him,
though, right?

I can't say for sure what's going on.

Except that this
was probably his idea.

-- keeping two hostages. We have
reason to believe one of them...

REPORTER: No one's quite sure
what's going on, folks, around here.

This could be a major turning point
in this highly tense hostage situation.

Did you know about this?

- We'll keep you informed
- No.

as more details become available.

It's all right.


Right? Okay.

No tricks. It's just me.

I'm gonna approach the victim,
all right?


DANNY: You all right?

Whoa, whoa! Hey.

It's all right. Hey, Billy.

It's all right. I'm just taking him out.

Like we agreed. All right?


It's okay.

No problem.

Come on, I got a hostage. Come on.


Now we got
the PC's son held hostage.

Yeah. I'd say that was
a pretty crappy career move, captain.

We line up this shot,
I'm taking this bastard Flood out.

Come on.

- Billy.
- You got what you wanted, Danny.

- Just go.
- I didn't come here for him, Billy.

I came for you.

Your father knows I'm in here?

The whole city knows you're in here
by now.

You got a green light.

Roger, captain.

It's too late for you to save me, Danny.
So just go.

No, it isn't. Listen, you've got me.

Why don't we let her go?
We don't need her, Billy.

Let her go. We'll figure this out
together. You and me.

The only thing I need to figure out
is do I have the balls to shoot myself,

or do I take the coward's way out
and let that sniper do it for me.

Billy. Billy!

Hey! Don't do it.

Don't do it, Billy!

Come on. Don't do it.

Billy, look at me. Billy.
All right. I'll tell you what.

You wanna do it?
You wanna kill yourself? Okay, do it.

What about her, Billy?


What about your little girl?

You do that, who's gonna take care
of your little girl, Billy?

That's right. Look at her.

Who's gonna take care of her then?

I know that's why you're here.

Come on, the whole city knows
that's why you're here.

My old man even said it.

He said,
"lf I was in Billy Flood's position,

and my kid was gonna die
if she didn't get an operation

and didn't have money or insurance,
I would do the same thing."

Reagan's blocking my shot.

Your little girl
does not want you stepping

in front of that window.

You know what is outside
that window, Billy.

She needs a heart transplant.
She's 8 years old. I can't help her.

You know what that's like, Danny?
Not being able to save your own child?

- I don't.
- I was gonna fly her out tonight.

Get the operation in lndia.

"Medical tourism," they call it.

Hundred grand is all I needed.

It's crazy, I know. But--

She's the only good thing I ever did.

The only good thing I ever had.

No, she's not, Billy.

You were a good cop.

You are a good cop.
Now do the right thing here.

It's not too late to fix it, Billy.

No, I'm nothing.

Hurry up!

OFFlCER 1: Go to the right. Go, go, go.
DANNY: Come on.

Go, go, go.

Move it in, go.

OFFlCER 2: Right, left.
- It's over, Billy.

I'm sorry. I'm sorry.

"Sources close to the mayor said
if the police commissioner thinks

sending his son
to conduct cowboy diplomacy

is the way to handle these situations,
he is sorrily out of touch."


Well, I couldn't agree more.

I got back to the house with a collar,
guys all had it on the break room TV.

Ripping into me
about Danny going into that bank.

Well, for what it's worth,
it was my bad idea to go into the bank.

Dad had nothing to do with it.

What a surprise.

HENRY: All good cops follow rules,
but the great cops,

they know when to improvise.

So you just let them run amok?

I was informed by the incident
commander that he was sent in.

Chain of command noted
and observed.

Still, when I saw you walk
into that bank like John Wayne,

I wanted to choke you.

- Who's John Wayne?
- That's sad.


He's an old movie star.

How about Billy Flood's daughter?
What's gonna happen to her?

Well, I think she's gonna be okay.

Catholic charities moved her up
to the top of their list.

Funny thing, after church today
Father McMurray mentioned

how grateful he was for a donation
to the hospital's fund.

Well, I guess there's a lot
of generous people in this city.

So it was all for nothing.
He could've just asked for help.

Instead he robbed a bank.

Sometimes we judge ourselves
by our good intentions.

But we are judged
by our last worst act.

- Are you listening, boys?
- Yep.

I'm so glad I married a hero.

Excuse me.

Hey, what's going on?

What's the problem, Lin?

I'm so glad that Billy Flood's daughter
is gonna be okay,

but what about our kids?

What about our kids? Our kids
are fine. What are you talking about?

- Really?
- What are you talking about?

What'll happen to our kids
the next time you swagger

into one of those buildings,
and you don't come out?

What about our kids, then,
huh, Danny? What about me?

You son of a bitch.

Linda, I knew the guy.

I knew what he was doing in the bank,
and I knew he wasn't gonna shoot me.

You don't know that. You don't know
any such thing. That is macho crap.

John Wayne. John Wayne never faced
a real gun in his life.

John Wayne.

I was watching it on TV, Danny.

I saw you.

It scared the crap out of me.

Hey. Hey.

Come on. Come on.

I'm sorry. I'm so sorry.

Look, I love you.

I love you and those boys
more than anything on this earth,

and I promise you,
I won't let anything happen.

You know, the first and last thing
I think about every day,

before I do anything,
is to get home safe to you.

I'm sorry.

What would you do if I needed
an operation and we had no money?

- And your life was on the line?
- Yeah.

Rob a bank.

Wow, Ma Barker.

Don't listen to your aunt, boys.

When you were 18 months old,
you spiked a fever, 105 degrees.

It's 3 in the morning.
Your mother's in a panic.

There had been an outbreak
of meningitis in the neighborhood.

Three dead toddlers.

An ambulance crew arrives.

They wanna take you to St. Victor's,
a butcher shop.

I insist on Methodist.

The guy says,
"I'm not authorized to go there."

Now, you're burning up,
convulsing in my arms.

I take out my service revolver,
and I say:

"Now you're authorized."

Check out Pops getting all gangsta.

- He pulled a gun on an EMT.
- I never heard that story.

We almost lost you that night,

Guess I owe you one, Pop.
