Blue Bloods (2010–…): Season 4, Episode 3 - To Protect and Serve - full transcript

When a man is killed in front of his son, Danny investigates. The boy gives him information that helps him identify the man. He learns the man has a record and was convicted of murder a few years but is not in prison and can't be found anywhere. Frank is later approached by Homeland Security who tells him the man Danny is looking for works for them and asks him to drop the investigation. He goes to Danny and tells him about Homeland Security but he doesn't formally tell him to drop it. Danny tries to find a person who knows the man he's looking for but can't find him because Homeland Security made him unaccessible. Danny goes to Erin to ask what he can do and she tells him there's nothing stopping him from following the agent who is handling the man. He does and finds him. Erin's arraigning the man and discovers that her ex, Jack is representing the man. After the man is arraigned he grabs the bailiff's gun and holds everyone hostage. Jaime comes across an accident wherein a boy and his mother are pinned he helps them. The boy asks for Jaime not to leave him but a lieutenant orders him to stay which he disobeys. Jaime is facing disciplinary action for what he did and Frank chooses not to intervene.

First murder of the week
and in broad daylight.

I love this city.


What are we looking at here?

John Hudson,
39 years old.

Took one in to the head,
one in the chest.

Looks like a .45 casing,

Any surveillance cameras?

This ain't Times Square.

What's with the jacket?

Kid over there covered him.
Michael Hudson.

He's the only witness.

It's the victim's son.

Hang tight.


My name's Detective Reagan.

This is my partner,
Detective Baez.

We're here to help you.

You gonna help get my dad back?

Well, if you can
help us out here

and tell us
what you saw,

I give you my word
we'll do everything we can

to find out who did this.

Will you talk to us?

We were walking home...

through the park.

And I saw this guy
walking towards us.

And I saw he had a gun.

And I guess my dad,

he must have
seen it, too,

because he pushed me
to the ground,

and then I heard bam, bam, bam.

What did he look like?

Um, Spanish...

in his 20s,


Was he someone you recognized?

No, but he had, like, a big
tattoo right here, of a gun.

Michael, can you think
of anybody

who would want to hurt your dad?

Do you have
any other relatives?

Yeah, my mom,

but I don't want
to go home just yet.

I just want to stay with him.


Notify me after
the testimony, okay?

Good luck.

How'd your case go?

Saw your name
on the calendar.

Erin Reagan.

You finally got rid
of "Boyle."

Apparently not.

Got a conviction.


You on your way
to court?

Uh, yeah, I'm due
at a deposition,

but I wanted to let you know
that I got Nicky tickets

to that concert at the
Garden on Sunday night.

Did you already tell her?

She's thrilled.

And she wants to bring Melissa,
and she wants

to have a sleepover afterwards
at her house.

I figured that's
not a problem, right?

Was I wrong?

I just wish you would
check in with me

about these things, Jack, okay?

'Cause I already got her

and it was supposed
to be a surprise.


So she can bring
some more friends.


Forget it.

You know what, actually?

Do me a favor.

Make me a list. I'll put it
on my refrigerator door.

Things Jack Could Do Right.

Yep, sounds good.

Thank you.

Okay, so why don't you
just give me a call later

and, uh, we'll
pick a place?

A hot date?

Nope, just a guy
from my Academy class.

Oh, not a date?

I don't know.
What makes it a date?


The suspect was wearing
cool shoes

and his best cologne?


Call it in!

12 David to Central.

We have a 53
at DeKalb and Court.

Request a bus

Mommy! Mommy, are you okay?

- Ma'am, ma'am, can you hear me?
- Help my mom!

My son, my son is in the back!

Is she okay?
Okay. What's his name?


Okay, stay calm.
Is my mom okay?

Try not to move.

Try not to move, okay?
Look at me. Look at me!

It's okay.
We're gonna help your boy,

we're gonna help you.

Mommy! Mom!
I can't get it!

What's going on?!
Hey, Ryan. Hey.

I'm Officer Reagan. I'm gonna
get you out of there, okay?

How's my mom?
She's gonna be okay.

Listen, Ryan, I'm gonna
break the glass.

I want you to cover your face, okay?
Oh, no.

Cover your face!

Hey, Ryan, I'm gonna
get you out of here, okay?

It's okay.

Is my mommy okay?

We'll check on your
mom right now.

All right, just lay down
right here, okay? Don't move.

We're gonna have the paramedics
take a look at you, okay?

Hey, you put that
description out?

Nothing yet.

What about the gun tattoo?

I searched BADS. Nothing popped.

All right. Riker's has their own
Gang Intel database.

Tap that and see what comes up.

Here we go. Gun tattoo
on the right side of his neck.

Raul Delgado.
Six feet, 170 pounds.

Okay, so far, so good.

In 2009, he was arrested
for assault.

Got convicted, served two years.

2011, he was collared for murder.
Was he acquitted?

He was found guilty,
sentenced 15 to 25.

That means he couldn't
be our guy.

He's in prison.

Supposed to be.

But according to these records,
he's not.

Was it retrial,
out on bail, what?

None of the above.

He literally just disappeared
from the system.

You're gonna go
in the ambulance

with your mom,
okay, Ryan?

All right.

Ryan's right behind you,
all right?

He's coming up right behind you.
You're okay.

Officer Reagan.

How many hurt?

Two. We have
a 35-year-old female

and her son,
eight years old.

The driver of the truck
is about 50. He's fine.

Either driver make any statements?

Officer Reagan, you coming?

I'm coming with you, Ryan.

The kid's really upset,
his mother's in shock.

I'm gonna go with him
to the hospital.

No, you have to prepare
the accident report.

I can prepare the report, boss.

You will stay out of this,
Officer Janko.

You're the senior officer.

Boss, there's other members
who can...

Well, you were first
on the scene.

You're coming with me, right?!
What's going on?

This is all on me.

Where are you going?

You know where I'm going.

I'll check in
with you later.

I don't give a damn
what your nameplate says.

I'm giving you a direct order.

You leave here, you
disobey a lawful order.

I'll have your shield.

You know where to find me.

You're gonna sit there
and tell me

that the Surveillance Program

doesn't violate civil liberties?

Seriously! It's helped stop
14 terrorist plots

against this city since 9/11.

You can't just stand
behind 9/11!

You don't tell me
where to stand!

2,000 security cameras around
New York City, license plate...

In service of the public safety.

- Vigilant.
- Time out.

Uh, "Don't tell me
where to stand"

sounds like, uh, "You
can't handle the truth."

We don't want to sound

Well, she started it!

And so will Reverend Potter on
the broadcast.

Don't take the bait.

Over a million ears will be
listening in.

Let's secure the high road.

This is stupid.

Thank you, Baker.

Excellent work.
Same time tomorrow?

Think you can you handle
another round?

Better eat your spinach.

And you don't know
what this is about, do you?

It's Homeland Security, Frank.

They're not real big on sharing
the particulars.

But I do know it involves that
murder in Washington Heights,

the guy in front of his kid?




Please, sit down.

I'm Deputy Director Tom Mason,

this is Agent Richard Keller,

Homeland Security

We're here about
the John Hudson murder.

Why is Homeland Security

in a hit in Washington Heights?

We have information

that Raul Delgado is a suspect
in the case.

We own him.

Well, we always try to cooperate
with your agency

as much as we possibly can.

I know.

That's why I'm here, to ask you

to order your detectives
to back off.

== sync, corrected by elderman ==


Thanks for coming.

Well, you said
you were buying.

Ginger ale, wedge of lime.

Yes, sir.

What's that all about?

You might want
to go back to work.

I just came off a 12-hour tour
chasing my tail.

On what?

The hit in Washington Heights.

I got a suspect
whose last known address

is five years old,
no cell phone, no family.

Named Raul Delgado.

Yeah. How'd you know?

Let me rephrase.

He's a confidential informant

for Homeland Security.

That would explains how
he disappeared from the system.

How's this guy get
a pass on murder?

He's been feeding 'em
intel on a drug organization

they think funnels money
to an overseas terror cell.

They "think"?
It's Homeland Security.

They're not real big on sharing
the particulars.

Okay, so am I supposed
to back off this thing?

You like Delgado for this?


His last known associate's
a guy named Juan Lopez,

doing time in Otisville
for armed robbery.

Okay. Thanks.

Figure out how
you found that out.

Copy that.

Great. Thanks for your

You ready to go,

We're not going.

What do you mean,
we're not going?

I just got off the phone
with the warden.

He transferred Lopez
about an hour ago.

The guy agreed
to talk to us.

Why the hell
would they move him?

It's a federal prison.

Apparently, the Feds can
move him around every day

of the week if they want,
without any reason.

All right, fine, fine.
Where'd they move him to?

South Dakota.

The show's host, Sean Martin,
will act as moderator.

And how moderate is he?

It's public radio.

So not very. So it's him

and Reverend Potter, two on one.

You'll have a height
and reach advantage.

Your Chief of Department wants
another word.


I can make this go away.

Why don't you give me
the headline first, Dino?

Officer Reagan is facing
departmental charges

and possible suspension for
disobeying a direct order

from a superior officer

at the scene of the accident.
I know.

I could speak
with the lieutenant...


You could certainly
make the case

that it was in
the child's best interest

for Officer Reagan
to accompany him

to the hospital.

But he did, in fact,
disobey a direct order.

From a lieutenant
who was newly promoted,

and he was feeling his oats.

That fact sounds a lot
like opinion, Dino.

it was an ego trip.

I spoke to everyone,
including the lieutenant.

I know Jamie.

So do I.

What are you gonna do?

It's insubordination.

Do you really
want to read

"Reagan to Son:
You're Grounded"?

Better it's "Reagan to Son:
The Rules Don't Apply"?

It's gonna leave a permanent
mark on his record, Frank.


I got 35,000 cops.

Would you be saying this
if his name wasn't Reagan?

So remind me:
What's the advantage

to having your dad be the PC?

I build character.

Are we done here?

Homeland Security
left three messages.

Frank, are you disregarding
their request

to back off the investigation
into Raul Delgado?

I can neither
confirm nor deny

that information.

Well, what do you
want me to tell them?

To leave a message
at the beep.

I'm Agent Keller.

What can I do for you?

Raul Delgado.
He works for you?

You're his handler.
Come on, we know.

I'm sorry, I'm not at liberty
to discuss him with you.

Well, he's wanted
for murder.

Are you at liberty
to discuss that?

And you made sure
his last known associate

was transferred out
of Otisville prison

before we could
speak to him.

What are you implying?

That you're protecting
a stone-cold killer.

Now, what kind of cop
does that make you, huh?

I'm the kind that
looks at the big picture.

We're about to take down

a large-scale network
of terrorists.

Without Delgado,
that will not happen.

Look, Delgado
killed Hudson

in front of his
13-year-old son.

Nobody gets a pass
for that in this city.

I don't need a pass from you.

Call Washington
if you don't believe me.

And stop interfering
in my operation.

Chocolate dip, please.
Coming up.


I'm buying.

In exchange for what?

In exchange for you getting
me around Homeland Security.

- Thank you.
- Seriously?

Here you go, ma'am.

Well, you need to start
with a shadier lawyer, then.

Thank you.
Um, they got a CI,

this Delgado guy.

I like him for murder

and they won't
let me get near him.

You've collared
plenty of criminals

without the help of
Homeland Security.

Not ones with
their active protection.

And you can't find Delgado
without them?


He's off the grid, they wiped
him out of every database.

His handler, this guy Keller,

he doesn't want
to play ball, so...

There's got to be something
you can do to help.

I can't compel them
to cooperate.

This guy is
withholding information

in a murder investigation.

Okay. What's his name again?


Agent Keller
of Homeland Security

has firewalls and
perimeters around him

I can't see or touch.

Great. Thank you.

Enjoy your ice cream.


he's also a U.S. citizen

currently in your jurisdiction,

and you believe he has
knowledge on the whereabouts

of a prime suspect
in a murder case

that you've been assigned to.


And, in all likelihood,

he will cross paths
with that suspect

while he's in my jurisdiction.


Maybe I don't need
a shadier lawyer.

You'll do just fine.

Apartment 1F.
Let's move.

Last door on the right.

Let's go.

Step aside, ma'am.

He might be armed.

Raul Delgado!

Police! Open up!

Go, go, go!

Hold it!

Move, move, move!

He's headed for
the back alley!

Officer in pursuit!

Hold up!

Come here!

Settle down.
Get off me, man!

All right...

All right.

You tailed me?

It's not against
the law.

I'm a federal agent.


I thought we'd gotten past

all the introductions.

What do you think
you're doing?

Arresting Raul Delgado
for the murder of John Hudson.

You can't do that.

Sure I can, it's in
our jurisdiction.

So you, my friend,
can kiss my New York ass.

"Reagan to Son:
You're Grounded!"

You ought to get
royalties or something.

I still don't see
the point of

suspending him for a week
for being the kind of cop

you'd put on your
recruiting poster.

Are you ready for
Deputy Director Mason?

No, but let's
have him anyway.

Do you have any control

over your men?
Excuse me.

You can't just come in here...
I told you Delgado

was working for us.

I told you we needed him
for our operation.

Murder is a deal breaker.

If Delgado's taken
off the streets,

we lose our ability to track
what these guys are doing.

And if we end up with
a compromised operation,

the blood will be
on your hands.

And whose hands
is Mr. Hudson's blood on?

Collateral damage.

Don't give me that.

That's just spin
for bad planning.

You don't send my detectives

chasing their tail

in order to hide
a murderer in my city.

You know where the door is.

Were any guns recovered?


So we still don't have
a murder weapon.

Yeah, but we got
an eyewitness.



Jack Boyle.

What are you doing here?

Here to see my client.

Who's that?

Raul Delgado.
You're joking, right?

You're representing Raul Delgado?

Are you kidding?
Excuse me.

Let's go, okay?

My firm has a deal
with the Feds.

It's an assigned case.

Bringing in six men
for you to take a look at, Michael.

See if you can
recognize one of them.

But I got to be
honest with you,

I'm having a pretty hard
time figuring out

why anybody would want
to kill your dad.

My dad didn't do anything.

I didn't say he did
do anything wrong.

Did I?

You understand that I'm
trying to help you here?


I can't do that
unless you help me, too.

My dad was a dockworker,

in Red Hook.

And last week,

when I was there...

...his boss got really
pissed at him.


I said, "Why?"

One of the containers
got damaged,

so he opened it
to try to fix it.

And he found drugs inside.

What kind of drugs?

He said it was cocaine.

Why didn't you
tell me this sooner?

My dad told me not to tell
anyone what we saw.

He said it could get us killed.

All right, Michael, need you
to stand right there.

Take a good look
at each suspect.

Take your time.

Let me know if you
recognize anyone.

Number three.

Number three?

Where do you recognize
number three from?

That's the guy
who shot my father.

How old is
your witness?

My witness is old
enough to recognize

the scumbag that
killed his father.

See you in court.

Your witness
is a kid.

He's 13 years old, Jack.

Nonetheless, I am going to
request a Wade hearing.

You're challenging
that lineup?

Based on what?

Your only witness,

the person you're
hanging this case on,

is a minor,

and an emotionally
charged one, at that.

So what?

That's not going to get
the I.D. thrown out.

I think the judge
decides that.

Why don't you think about
what you're really angry about?

What is that
supposed to mean?

First you were mad at me
for not being there for Nicky,

and now that I am,
you're mad about that.

Make up your mind.

Glass of stout,

Do you want to know
how you know

your second date's
not a date?

How's that?

When after
your first date,

which was a date,

he texts you and says
he's not gonna be able to make it,

but you could
stop by his place

after midnight.

A booty call?


You can feel free
to move on.

I'm not really in
much of a mood.

If it's any consolation,
I think you look nice.

By comparison?
I should hope so.

There isn't a woman alive

whose ass looks good
in that uniform.

Well, I owe you
an apology.

I left you
holding the bag.

I handled it.

And I made sure
the lieutenant knew

that you didn't
have any part

in me disobeying orders.

Why did you
disobey orders?

Because the Patrol Guide

is called a guide
for a reason.

I made the decision
that that kid's welfare,

and how he views cops
for the rest of his life,

was more important
than protocol.

Besides, there was
a dozen other uniforms

that could've made the
report, including you.

You don't think your last name
had anything to do with that?

Sometimes it helps,

sometimes it puts
a target on your back.

I can't believe
you're suspended.

Seven days.

Why don't you just ask your dad
to help you out?

Because he's not that guy.

You don't think
he'd support you?

Support me, yes.

Get me out of trouble
I got myself into?

Not in this lifetime.

Here you go.

One more for my partner?
Sure thing.

Detective, didn't you promise
Michael Hudson

that you would find
his father's killer?

Yes, I did, and that's
why Raul Delgado's

sitting right next to you.

Objection, Your Honor.


A 13 year-old is susceptible

to suggestion, Your Honor,

especially when we
have a detective

making promises
that he can't keep.

Their entire case hinges

on identification
made by a minor.

Your Honor, we have proven
the non-suggestive nature

of this lineup, and age alone
cannot predetermine

the validity
of this identification.


No further questions
for the detective.

I'm sorry, Mr. Boyle,
but I must side

with the prosecution on this.

The child's age,
though a mitigating factor,

is not enough
to discredit the I.D.

At this time, I'd like
to inform the court

that we will be
filing a request

for a known DNA sample

from Mr. Delgado.


The defendant will continue

to be remanded
without bail pending trial.

Can't do this to me.

I work for the Feds.
Right, I understand that,

but this is no longer
their jurisdiction, I'm sorry.

No, I'm protected, man.

Mr. Delgado...

They said nothing would happen.

You and I can meet later

to discuss strategy,
but for now,

you have to comply.

Don't move!

Don't anybody move!


Let's go!

Get back and get in that corner.

You think I'm playing
with you, huh?

Get back!

Very slowly,
come down off of there.

You! Move.

Calm down, please.

Yo, shut up!

Stop what you're doing.

Use your head, Raul.

I got this punk kid I.D.'ing me.

Now I got to give DNA?

It's not looking
too good for me.


Yo, what are you doing?!


Relax, please!

Please, relax!
Yo, shut up!

No! No...


I believe the current number
is a little over

2,000 security cameras
in New York City.

Big Brother is indeed watching.

Plus officers going
undercover in mosques.

Plus innocent citizens
getting stopped and frisked

on the street every day, almost
100% of them black or Latino.

Which, as the Reverend Potter
well knows,

is the same
racial representation

of assailants and victims.

But, Commissioner,
isn't that kind of pigeonholing

part of the problem,

but not the solution?

It's not either.
It's just a cold fact.

I'll tell you what I know.
And, Sean...

...if the Reverend is correct,

and the NYPD is
violating civil rights,

why don't we see
evidence from some

of the eight million
or so cell phone cameras

that regularly record
police activity

in this city?

What I know

is that our civil liberties
are being stripped away

by the police under the guise
of keeping us safe.

Do you know, Sean,
that there are

license readers recording
every car entering and exiting

the Lincoln Tunnel and
the Brooklyn Bridge?

And now the Police Commissioner
is proposing video drones

to fly over our heads,
to record everything

that his pole cameras
have missed.

When will it end?


It'll end...

when New Yorkers feel
they can go

to the Thanksgiving Day Parade

and New York City Marathon

or Times Square
on New Year's Eve

without fear that they are
a terrorist target.

There's a report
of shots fired from inside.

Do we know who fired?

No, nor if anyone was hit.

Your car's ready
to go down there.

We're going to One PP.

It's your daughter, Frank.

The commissioner
does not belong there.

He'll mess things up.

It's not what I want to do.

It's what I should do.

One PP.

I'm told he is the best
negotiator we've got.

TARU is setting up a feed
from the site in your office.

Where are we with the hostage team?

We're in an unusual situation.

Delgado said that he'd
only speak with your son.

Seems he has a score
to settle with Danny.

We got a live feed
from the courtroom?

Yes, sir.


Delgado's waiting
for your call.

You got him?

You know the drill.

Keep him on as
long as possible.

Nothing that's
gonna rile him.


You just hang on.

We're gonna get out of this.

Just do me a favor.

Don't be heroic, okay?


Raul, this is Detective Reagan.

Who's in charge now, Detective?

You are.

We know you got a gun
and you let off a round.

Is anybody hurt?

I'm hurt, Reagan.

That you think I'm stupid.

That you think you're
gonna be able to talk me

out of what I have to do.

What do you want, Raul?

200,000 wired
to my off-shore account.

It's under my name
at World Dominican.

Number seven, four, six,
nine, two, eight, two.

And I want a flight
to the Dominican Republic.

I can make that happen, but you
need to release the hostages.

I don't think so.

Raul, I need a show
of good faith.

Give me a sign of good faith,

and I'll get started
on what you want.


I'll send out one.

You send out one, I'll start
making the arrangements.

But it's gonna take some time.

That's one thing you don't have.

You get it here by 3:00.

Raul, that's two hours.

It's not possible.


Or I shoot hostages.

Starting with your sister.

Let me speak to her.

Let me...


You're facing more charges
now, you know that, right?

And every minute
you keep this up

makes it worse.

Chances are you're not gonna
make it out of here alive.

I will.

If I bring her with me.

Inside the courtroom.

We got the pinhole
camera working.

He's releasing
a female hostage.

It looks like
the stenographer.



The money's being transferred.
There's a car standing by.

It'll take you to the airport
where there's a plane waiting

to take you to the DR.

I'm taking a hostage with me.

To make sure
there isn't any mistakes.

No attempt to stop me
at any point.


You need to release

the injured hostage.

Your sister?

She's the most valuable hostage

I have, Reagan.

She needs medical attention,
do you understand me?

Please, you got to release her.

I'll release her when I get
to the Dominican Republic.

Let me speak to her, Raul.


If I do not speak to her

and make sure that she's okay,

then all bets are off!

Do you understand me?

Come here.

Right now.

Get up.

Stay back, big guy.

One false move...

You try to tell him anything,

I'll kill him.


Are you hurt bad?

Tell Dad I'm okay.

If I walk out, I see a window
open, a sniper on the roof,

anything off, I'm putting
a bullet in her head.

Let's go.

Ra-Raul, she's
wounded, all right?

So she needs a doctor,
so you take me instead.

You move out of the way.

No, I'm gonna go with you.

Yo, am I speaking English?


Let's go now!



You sure you want
to keep watching this?

I don't have a choice.

I got no weapons.

Prove it.


I'm gonna step out to the front
of the vehicle, all right?

Take it easy.

Taking my jacket off.

Nothing in my holster.

All right?

Open your shirt.

Open your shirt!

Come on, I got
nothing, all right?

The money's transferred, Raul.

Yeah, I know;
I confirmed.


Get in the car
with me, all right?

Drive you to the airport.

Jet's fueled up and
ready to go at Kennedy.

Just release her first,
all right?

No way, man.

I can't release her.

She's my insurance
I won't be killed.

That you won't pull anything.

I'm giving you my word.

Your word is crap, man.

I'll release her

when I get to the
Dominican Republic.

I'm promising you safe passage
to the DR, okay?


But you can't take her with you.

Just leave her here.

Come on, you and me.

No way, man.

Raul, come on.

I've given you everything
you asked for.

Everything you asked for,
I got it for you.

I'm only asking you
one thing in return.

Please, please, one thing.

One thing, come on.

Look at me, hey, hey.

Look at me.


Please don't hurt my family.

Please don't hurt my family.

Grab the piece.

Are you okay?


How's the wing?

Same as it was
the last time you asked,

ten minutes ago.

Aunt Erin, do you need help
with anything?

No, that's okay.

Thanks, Jack.

We got Erin
dodging bullets,

and Jamie telling
off his bosses.

It's been a banner week
for the family business.

I didn't tell anyone off.

Oh, and here you thought
I was the troublemaker, Dad.

Who'd you tell off?
No one.

God, there is no privacy
in this family.

Personally, I say you're
not doing your job

if you're not getting
complaints or being suspended.

So you got to break the rules
in order to be a good cop?

No, I'm just saying,
if you're an active cop

and you're passionate
about what you do,

you're bound
to piss somebody off.

And nobody knows that
better than you.

Well, the apples don't
fall far from the tree.

Hmm? Really? You?

Two weeks without pay

for telling a chief to stick it

where the sun don't shine.

Two days suspension for kicking
a rapist in the nuts.

Been suspended 20 days

for calling out a corrupt
judge in open court.

So does that mean if I get
suspended from school...


Nah, that's not
what we're saying, sweetie.

We're not saying
that getting suspended

is a badge of honor.

But sometimes you have
to follow your heart

even if you do break the rules.

I think we should make
a new rule

that we don't keep secrets

about family members being
in danger

and make them wait
until the next morning

to hear about it.

We didn't want you
to worry, Nicky.

But I am grateful to you,
Uncle Danny,

for saving my mom.

Actually, we have
your grandfather to thank, too.

I mean, Uncle Danny

for being there,

but your grandfather

for preparing us
when we were little.

That's right.

If I say, "Please
don't hurt my family,"

- what are you guys gonna do?
- Hit the ground.


Because that means
Dad's gonna shoot the bad guy.

There you go.

Is that how you saved Aunt Erin?


Who invented that?

Your grandfather.

I mean, you used to

drill that into us

every time we went
into the city.

Or every time we got
on the subway.

Actually, Pop invented it.

He used to do
the same thing to me.

But we actually never had
to use it.

And please God,
we never will again.


Hey, what are you doing here?

Well, I was gonna
come see you

at the hospital, but I knew
you had your family there,

and they always carry
loaded weapons.

So, uh...


Well, I do love roses.

Thank you.
Yeah, I know.

How's the shoulder?

Oh, I guess I was lucky.

It's just a little
muscle damage.

How's the head?

Thick as ever.

Anyway, I just wanted
to make sure

that you're all right.

I am. I'm all right.


I, um...

I could've...

I could've lost you,

but you know what
it made me think?


there is nothing
that I regret more

than letting you go.

And I have never
told you that,

but there it is.

Thank you for that.

And I was really happy

that you were there with me.

Thank you.

Thank you.

What are we doing?

That I don't know.

It needed a new starter.

I already ordered one
over the Internet

to put it in, in the
next couple days.


No problem.

We square?

Well, it was 40 bucks,

plus tax and shipping.

I'm talking
about the suspension.

Are we square?

We're square.

If I had it to do over again,
I'd do the exact same thing.

Balls is knowing the cost
and going ahead anyway.

I'm going
to the new Tom Hanks movie.

You want to come?

I'd love to,

but some of us have to go
to work in the morning.
