YEAH. YEAH, RIGHT.

YEAH, THANKS.

THANKS A LOT.

YES!

HEY, DOC?

I'M DETECTIVE RUSSELL.
THIS IS DETECTIVE McDOWELL.

HAROLD ZAKIAN, NEUROLOGIST.

WELL, DEEP ARTERY'S
COMPLETELY SEVERED,

OTHERWISE HE'S STABLE.

JUST OUT OF CURIOSITY,

HOW MUCH OF THE THING
DID HE LOSE?

OH, I'D SAY ABOUT HALF.

ANY NEWS
ON THE MISSING PART?

QUICKER WE FIND IT,
THE BETTER THE CHANCE

OF MAKING THIS GUY
WHOLE AGAIN.

KEEP YOUR FINGERS CROSSED.

WHO ARE YOU?

I'M DETECTIVE RUSSELL.

THIS IS DETECTIVE McDOWELL
FROM THE 15th SQUAD.

THEY SENT
FEMALE DETECTIVES?

GOT A PROBLEM
WITH THAT, VINCENT?

WHY DON'T YOU JUST
TELL US WHAT HAPPENED?

I MET HIM IN THE SUBWAY
WHEN I GOT OFF THE "D" TRAIN.

HE'S ONE
OF THOSE STREET TYPES

WHO HANGS OUT
ON THE PLATFORM.

YOU MEAN A HUSTLER.
YOU GET HIS NAME?

NO.

WHAT DID THIS GUY
LOOK LIKE?

BLACK, ABOUT 5'4",
KINKY HAIR.

HE WINKED AT ME.

SO, UH, AFTER HE LET YOU KNOW
HE WAS AVAILABLE...

HE TOOK ME UP
TO THE MEN'S ROOM.

DO YOU REMEMBER WHICH ONE?

NOT REALLY.

FAR INTO THE STATION,
I THINK.

YOU KNOW THE REST.

YOU TELL US.

MIGHT HELP US
FIND THE GUY.

WELL, WE'RE IN THE STALL,

AND HE'S DOING
WHAT HE DOES,

AND SUDDENLY I FEEL
A SHARP PAIN,

AND I SEE
HE'S HOLDING A KNIFE,

AND NOW THERE'S BLOOD
EVERYWHERE

AND HALF MY THING IS GONE.

ANY IDEA WHY HE'D
DO THAT TO YOU?

ABSOLUTELY NONE.

WHAT HAPPENED TO THE PART
HE CUT OFF?

UNIFORM OFFICERS
DIDN'T FIND IT.

I LOOKED AROUND THE FLOOR.
I DIDN'T SEE IT.

MAYBE HE TOOK IT WITH HIM.

OKAY. WE'RE GOING TO TRY
TO FIND WHO DID THIS.

MAYBE HE CAN TELL US
WHERE IT IS.

FINE.

I MADE CAPTAIN.

THAT'S GREAT NEWS.

THANKS, GREG.

HEY, CONGRATULATIONS.
THANKS, BALDWIN.

WE'RE GOING TO MISS YOU
AROUND HERE.

YEAH, ME, TOO.

CONGRATS.

HEY, BOSS...

NO ONE DESERVES THIS
MORE THAN YOU.

THANK YOU, DANNY.

AHEM.

DITTO FOR ME.

WHEN ARE YOU GETTING MADE?

NEXT TUESDAY.

WHOA, THAT'S QUICK.

ANYWAYS,
AT THAT SOCIAL CLUB,

D.O.A. IN THE TRUNK,

WE FIGURE SOME RIVAL FAMILY
DUMPED THE CAR OUTSIDE.

SO WHOEVER DID IT
WAS SENDING A MESSAGE?

ONE OF THEM WISE GUYS
STOPPED SCRATCHING HIS BALLS

LONG ENOUGH TO GIVE US

A TENTATIVE I. D.
ON THE VICTIM ‐‐

EDDIE TESTA.

WE'LL CHECK HIM AT OCCB

AND HAVE AUTO SQUAD DO
A LAWMAN SEARCH ON THE CAR.

GOOD.

LOOK, I DON'T MEAN
TO SOUND LIKE A KILLJOY,

BUT WHY ARE YOU
DOING THIS, HUH?

YOU MADE LIEUTENANT
IN THE DETECTIVES' BUREAU.

YOU'RE ALREADY MAKING
CAPTAIN'S PAY.

FOR ALL YOU KNOW,

THEY'LL PUT YOU BACK
IN THE BACK.

THEY TOLD ME THEY'RE
GOING TO DO WHAT THEY CAN

TO RETAIN ME IN THE BUREAU.

WELL, WHEN YOU'RE OUT
IN FAR ROCKAWAY

WORKING SOME
SERIAL PURSE‐SNATCHER,

DON'T SAY NOBODY WARNED YOU.

THANKS FOR YOUR CONCERN,
ANDY.

ANY IDEA
WHO'S REPLACING YOU?

NOPE.

NO NAMES MENTIONED,
NOTHING LIKE THAT?

I HEAR ANYTHING,
YOU'LL BE THE FIRST TO KNOW.

NINE YEARS
BREAKING THIS GUY IN,

HE JUST UPS AND LEAVES.

COME ON, ANDY.

YOU DON'T EXPECT SOMEONE
TO TURN DOWN A PROMOTION.

DETECTIVE, I BELIEVE
I HEARD SOMETHING THIS MORNING

ABOUT A ‐‐
A MISSING MALE MEMBER.

YEAH.

THIS CALL JUST CAME IN.

A THUMB'S BEEN LOCATED
AT THE ATM MACHINE

AT THE CITIZENS' BANK
AT 3rd AND 12th.

A THUMB?

THAT'S WHAT THEY SAID,
A THUMB.

THAT'S A COUPLE OF BLOCKS
FROM THE SUBWAY STATION.

COME ON. WHAT KIND OF JERK

IS GOING TO CONFUSE
SOMETHING THE SIZE OF A THUMB

WITH WHAT
YOU'RE LOOKING FOR?

TRUST ME, DETECTIVE,

THERE'S A LOT OF THEM
OUT THERE

THAT COULD BE CONFUSED
WITH A THUMB.

COME CHECK IT OUT?

PSST.

FANCY KNOWS
WHO'S REPLACING HIM.

WHO?

HE SAYS THAT HE DON'T.

SO YOU THINK
HE'S HOLDING OUT ON US?

I KNOW
HE'S HOLDING OUT ON US.

WHAT I DON'T KNOW IS WHY.

HEY, KASUKAS,
ANDY SIPOWICZ.

I GOT A FAVOR TO ASK.

SO WHERE IS IT?

RIGHT THERE ON THE ATM.

I CALLED EMS.

I'LL TELL YOU ONE THING,
THAT AIN'T NO THUMB.

IF IT IS,
IT'S MISSING A NAIL.

AND THAT'S HALF.

NO WONDER MY WIFE
THREW ME OUT.

LADY OVER THERE'S
THE ONE WHO FOUND IT.

NAME'S ALLISON HOPKINS.

HAVE EMS GET THAT
TO BELLEVUE.

THERE'S A GUY THERE
LOOKING FORWARD

TO A FAMILY REUNION.

I'M DETECTIVE RUSSELL.
THIS IS DETECTIVE McDOWELL.

COULD YOU TELL US
WHAT HAPPENED?

I WAS SHORT ON CASH,
SO I WENT TO USE THE ATM.

AS I STUCK IN MY CARD,
I NOTICED THIS THUMB

LYING THERE NEXT
TO THE DEPOSIT SLIPS.

I FOUND A SECURITY GUARD,

AND I GUESS
HE CALLED THE POLICE.

YOU DIDN'T SEE
WHO LEFT IT THERE?

NO.

WHOEVER IT WAS
MUST BE CRAZY,

CUT OFF SOMEONE'S THUMB

AND LEAVE IT LYING THERE
LIKE THAT.

IT ISN'T ACTUALLY A THUMB.

NO? THEN WHAT IS IT?

A PENIS.

ACTUALLY, HALF A PENIS.

THAT'S SICK AND DISGUSTING,

EVEN FOR NEW YORK.

FOOD NO GOOD?

NAH. IT'S EARLY IN THE DAY
FOR ME HAVING LUNCH.

UNCLE EDDIE MENTIONED

YOU SEEMED
A LITTLE UPSET WITH HIM

TELLING ME
ABOUT THAT SHOOTING.

SEEMS LIKE YOU TWO GOT
SOME KIND OF DIRECT PIPELINE.

I GUESS HE FIGURED
IF YOU WERE IN TROUBLE,

I'D WANT TO KNOW.

LOOK, UH,

IT'S JUST THAT I PREFER
PASSING ON MY OWN NEWS

IN MY OWN TIME.

INSTEAD, HE TELLS,
YOU CALL ME...

I'M SORRY.

HEY, IT'S NOT WORTH GETTING
INTO A HASSLE OVER.

I DON'T WANT YOU TO THINK

I'M TRYING TO PUT PRESSURE
ON YOU, ANDY.

IT'S JUST YOU'RE THE FIRST
MAN I'VE MET

IN A LONG TIME
THAT I CARE ABOUT.

I CARE ABOUT YOU, TOO,
CYNTHIA.

I HEAR A "BUT" IN THERE.

THING IS, I DON'T KNOW
IF I CAN GIVE YOU

WHAT YOU'RE LOOKING FOR.

IS THAT THE QUESTION,

OR IS IT THAT YOU DON'T KNOW
IF I CAN GIVE YOU

WHAT YOU'RE LOOKING FOR?

YEAH, UH, I DON'T KNOW.

MAYBE.

WE'RE NOT KIDS, ANDY,

EITHER OF US.

AT 42, MY SECOND‐FAVORITE
WORD IS "NO."

WHY DOES IT HAVE TO BE
YES OR NO?

WHAT ABOUT, UH,
I GOT A HIGH‐STRESS JOB

AND A 5‐YEAR‐OLD KID
TO RAISE,

AND LET'S JUST SEE
HOW IT GOES?

OKAY. LET'S DO THAT,

SEE HOW IT GOES.

PHOTOS OFF THE ATM

MATCH THE DESCRIPTION
THE VICTIM GAVE US.

YOU GOT AN IDEA
WHERE TO LOOK FOR THIS GUY?

TRANSIT COPS
SAID THERE'S HOMELESS GUYS

THAT GIVE HUMMERS
IN THE MEN'S ROOMS.

SOME OF THEM SLEEP

IN THESE OLD
DESERTED SUBWAY TUNNELS.

[ Sighs ] YEAH.

THANKS FOR GETTING BACK
TO ME.

DALTO.

SUSAN DALTO?

[ Sighs ] SPELL THAT.

D‐A‐L‐T‐O.

OKAY, THANKS.

THIS WOMAN
LIEUTENANT DALTO,

THAT'S WHO'S
REPLACING FANCY.

SHE'S COMING OVER
FROM THE RAT SQUAD.

OH, JEEZ.

THIS IS A DISASTER.

WELL, IN THE MEANTIME,
THE BALLISTICS CAME BACK.

THE SLUGS WERE FIRED OUT
OF A .22 PISTOL.

ODD WEAPON OF CHOICE.

YEAH, THE D. O. A.,

HE WAS A LOW‐LEVEL
BUTTON MAN FOR SCARPELLI.

OCCB HEARD THAT MAYBE
HE WAS BANGING SOME BROAD

HE SHOULDN'T HAVE.

THINKING WITH HIS DICK?

STEP UP
FOR MOST OF THESE GUYS.

THAT LAWMAN SEARCH
MAY BE THE JACKPOT.

THAT CAR TESTA GOT DUMPED IN
WAS STOLEN LAST WEEK.

THERE'S A SHOCK.

YEAH, BUT FOUR DAYS AGO
THERE WAS A TRAFFIC SUMMONS

ISSUED IN BROOKLYN
OFF THE AUTOMATIC CAMERA.

DRIVER RAN A LIGHT.

THIS THE DRIVER?

YEAH, I GOT THAT
FROM AUTO CRIMES.

I KNOW THIS GUY.
I'VE SEEN HIM LOTS OF TIMES.

WHO IS HE?

I DON'T KNOW.

THIS SOME GUY YOU COLLARED?

NO, NO, NOT LIKE THAT.

IT'S SOME GUY
THAT YOU SEE AROUND.

BALDWIN.

YEAH?

DO YOU KNOW THIS GUY?

NO, NO.

YOU KNOW THIS GUY, GREG?

LAWMAN'S SEARCH
KICKS OUT A PHOTO

OFF A TRAFFIC SUMMONS.

ANDY AND GREG
RECOGNIZE THE GUY,

OWNS A LOCAL PIZZA JOINT.

SO CHECK WITH OCCB
THEN GO GRAB HIM UP.

YEAH, THAT'S WHAT
WE WERE THINKING.

SOMETHING ELSE?

HOW COME YOU DON'T TELL US

THE REPLACEMENT FOR YOU
HAS ALREADY BEEN PICKED?

WHAT ARE YOU TALKING ABOUT?

SOURCE AT ONE P. P.'s
NEVER STEERED ME WRONG,

SAYS IT'S A WOMAN OUT
OF THE RAT SQUAD

NAMED SUSAN DALTO.

ANDY, AS FAR AS I KNOW,
NOTHING'S BEEN DECIDED.

TRY NOT TO GET YOURSELF
ALL WORKED UP.

YEAH, RIGHT.

LOOK, IF IT MAKES YOU
FEEL ANY BETTER,

I'LL PUT A CALL
INTO PERSONNEL MYSELF.

I THINK THAT'S ANDY'S WAY
OF SAYING

HE'S GOING TO MISS YOU
LIKE HELL.

NO SURPRISE, I GUESS,

OCCB SHOWS
THAT THIS GUY'S GOT TIES

TO THE MARINO FAMILY.

YEAH, THEM GUYS
IN THE MARINO FAMILY ‐‐

IT WAS ONE OF THEM

ALMOST KILLED ME
EIGHT YEARS AGO.

YEAH, I REMEMBER HEARING
SOMETHING ABOUT IT.

I TOOK FIVE SLUGS.

IT PUT ME IN A COMA.

TOOK A COUPLE
RIGHT IN MY ASS.

COULDN'T SIT DOWN
FOR MONTHS

WITHOUT ONE
OF THEM PILLOWS.

OUCH.

WELL, I'M GLAD YOU MADE IT.

IT WAS
AFTER COMING THROUGH THAT

I QUIT DRINKING.

LOOKS LIKE OUR GUY.

LET HIM GET IN HIS CAR.

GET OUT OF THE CAR.

WHY?

GET OUT.

GET OUT OF THE CAR.

HANDS UP.

GET YOUR HANDS UP.
YOU PACKING, CHARLIE?

WHAT'S THIS?

YOU NEED IT TO STIR

I'M SURE HE'S GOT A PERMIT
FOR THAT, ANDY.

ALL RIGHT,
LET'S HAVE UNIFORM RESPOND

AND HAVE THE CAR BROUGHT IN.

HEY, VINNIE, CALL MY LAWYER.

OKAY.

HANK, STICK THIS GUY
IN THE POKEY.

OKAY, YOU'RE WELCOME.

DETECTIVE?

WHAT IS IT, JOHN?

FORGIVE ME, BUT THAT NAME
YOU MENTIONED EARLIER,

SUSAN DALTO,
IS SHE BEING CONSIDERED

AS A REPLACEMENT
FOR LIEUTENANT FANCY?

YEAH, WHY?
I HATE TO SAY THIS

BECAUSE I LIKE IT HERE
VERY MUCH,

BUT IF THAT WOMAN
IS GOING TO BE

REPLACING LIEUTENANT FANCY,

I'D HAVE TO THINK
ABOUT TRANSFERRING OUT.

YOU'RE SAYING YOU KNOW HER?

I'M AFRAID SO.
SHE'S A MEMBER

OF THE GAY OFFICERS'
ACTION LEAGUE.

G.O.A.L.?
SHE'S A MEMBER OF G. O. A. L.?

ACTUALLY, SHE'S QUITE ACTIVE
IN THE ORGANIZATION.

IF YOU DON'T MIND MY SAYING,

SHE'S A REAL BALL‐BUSTER.

AHEM.

GERALD HOLTZMAN
REPRESENTING CHARLES KARAMAZA.

UH, YES, MR. HOLTZMAN.

JERRY HOLTZMAN ‐‐
ANOTHER MOB LAWYER

COME TO PROTECT THE RIGHTS
OF ANOTHER SCUMBAG.

DETECTIVE SIPOWICZ.

HOW'D YOU GET HERE
SO QUICK?

I WAS ON MY WAY TO COURT
AND I GOT A CALL.

SO, WAS MY INFORMATION
CORRECT?

DO YOU HAVE
MR. KARAMAZA IN CUSTODY?

YEAH.

I'D LIKE TO SEE HIM.

OF COURSE YOU WOULD, COUNSELOR.

DOES HE HAVE YOUR NUMBER?

SO FAR THE ONLY THING
WE'VE SEEN ARE RATS.

YEAH, THESE HOMELESS TYPES

ARE PRETTY RESOURCEFUL,
DIANE.

IF THEY'RE DOWN HERE,

THEY'LL HAVE CATS
TO TAKE CARE OF THE RATS.

WHAT GOOD
IS THAT GOING TO DO?

SOME OF THESE RATS
ARE BIGGER THAN CATS.

Baldwin: HEY, YOU, COME HERE.

YOU RECOGNIZE THIS GUY?

NAH.

[ BOTTLE RATTLES ]

POLICE. DON'T MOVE.

DON'T SHOOT.
WE AIN'T DONE NOTHING.

WHAT'S YOUR NAME?

TERRY LOMAX.

HOW LONG YOU LIVED
DOWN HERE, TERRY?

ME? MUST BE
ABOUT TWO YEARS NOW.

HOW DO YOU STAND IT?

COMPARED TO WHAT?

BEING OUT ON THE STREET
COMBING GARBAGE CANS,

GETTING YOUR ASS WHOOPED
BY SOME FRUIT LOOP

FOR SOME SHILL?

YOU RECOGNIZE THIS GUY?

SURE. THAT'S SHORTY BOONE.

THAT'S HIS NAME,
SHORTY BOONE?

UH‐HUH. CRAZY LITTLE DUDE,
HUSTLES TRICKS.

YOU KNOW WHERE
WE COULD FIND HIM?

HE DONE SOMETHING?

WHAT ARE YOU, HIS LAWYER?
ANSWER THE QUESTION.

SHORTY WAS HERE LAST NIGHT.

HE LEFT A COUPLE OF HOURS AGO
TO GO DO HIS THING.

AND YOU HAVEN'T
SEEN HIM SINCE?

YOU WANT TO KEEP
YOUR SPOT DOWN HERE,

TELL US WHAT YOU KNOW.

MIGHT FIND HIM
ON THE UPTOWN

LEXINGTON AVENUE LINE
AT 14th STREET

IN THE MEN'S ROOM ‐‐

ONE OF HIS FAVORITE SPOTS.

ALL RIGHT, THANKS.

HOW LONG HAS THAT SHYSTER
WEASEL HOLTZMAN BEEN IN THERE?

UH, GOING ON AN HOUR.

GREASEBALL CLIENT OF HIS

MUST BE HAVING TROUBLE
GETTING HIS LIES STRAIGHT.

LET THIS KARAMAZA
LIE ALL HE WANTS.

WE'VE GOT HIS PICTURE
IN THE CAR

AND THE WEAPON
MATCHED UP TO BALLISTICS.

DETECTIVES, AS A PREREQUISITE
TO FURTHER DISCUSSION,

MY CLIENT WOULD LIKE
TO HAVE PRESENT REPRESENTATIVES

OF BOTH THE DISTRICT ATTORNEY
AND U. S. ATTORNEY'S OFFICE.

FOR WHAT, SO WE CAN MAKE
SOME HALF‐ASSED DEAL?

MR. KARAMAZA IS PREPARED,
UNDER THE RIGHT CIRCUMSTANCE,

TO PROVIDE
CONSIDERABLE INFORMATION

ON SEVERAL DOZEN
UNSOLVED HOMICIDES,

BUT UNTIL THE D. A.
AND U. S. ATTORNEY ARE PRESENT,

HE SHALL REMAIN MUTE.

YOUR CLIENT'S CONSCIENCE
IS BOTHERING HIM,

HE CAN UNBURDEN HIMSELF

WHEN THEY'RE STRAPPING HIM
DOWN TO GIVE HIM THE NEEDLE.

I'M OFFERING YOU
AN OPPORTUNITY, DETECTIVES.

WE CAN DO THIS HERE
AND YOU CAN CLEAR CASES,

OR YOU CAN HAVE
MY CLIENT ARRAIGNED,

AND I WILL HAVE HIM OUT
OF YOUR HANDS

MAKING THE CALLS MYSELF.

IT'S UP TO YOU.

WE MAKE THOSE CALLS,
HE BETTER HAVE SOMETHING.

WHAT MY CLIENT IS LOOKING FOR
IS A DEAL

WHERE HE NEVER
SPENDS A DAY IN JAIL.

IF HE'S LOOKING FOR US
NOT TO CHARGE HIM

WITH THE MURDER
OF EDDIE TESTA,

HE'D BETTER HAVE
SOMETHING SOLID.

IN 30 YEARS
AS A MADE MEMBER

OF THE MARINO CRIME FAMILY,

MR. KARAMAZA HAS COMMITTED
27 MURDERS.

IN ADDITION,
HE HAS KNOWLEDGE

ON DOZENS COMMITTED
BY OTHERS,

SOME RIGHT HERE
IN THIS PRECINCT.

FULL WRITTEN DISCLOSURE
AND TRIAL TESTIMONY.

ON ALL HOMICIDES.

MISS HAYWOOD?

LET'S SEE
WHAT HE'S GOT TO SAY.

I'M ASSUMING THIS MEANS
WE'VE GOT A DEAL.

SO, IN OTHER WORDS,

FOR THIS GUY KILLING
27 PEOPLE,

HE FIGURES HIS PUNISHMENT
SHOULD BE A NEW CONDO

WITH A LAP POOL IN PHOENIX

NEXT DOOR
TO SAMMY THE BULL?

OR PERHAPS HE'D SETTLE
FOR A JACUZZI.

SO, WHO DO YOU WANT
TO KNOW ABOUT?

CHICKY NADUCCI?
TWO IN THE BACK OF THE HEAD.

GAUGED HIS EYES OUT IN '85.

JIMMY ACHES ‐‐
ICE PICK IN THE EAR IN '91.

CHARLIE, HERE'S A LIST
OF UNCLEARED HOMICIDES

FROM THIS PRECINCT.

YOUR LAWYER SAID
YOU HAD INFORMATION.

OH, YEAH.

UH, RENE MINICUZZI...

STEVIE LOPEZ...

LUCA BAZOLLI ‐‐

YEAH, THESE THREE ARE MINE.

RICKY RIVERA,
THAT WASN'T ME,

BUT I KNOW WHO DID IT,
NOT THAT I MINDED

THIS LITTLE PRICK
GETTING WHACKED.

RICKY RIVERA WAS
THAT COLOMBIAN DEALER.

YEAH, HE GOT WHACKED ‐‐
HE GOT WHACKED IN '91.

HE WAS PAYING TRIBUTE TO US
ON HIS COKE DEALS.

WE LOST A NICE LITTLE
INCOME STREAM ON THAT ONE,

AND THEY GAVE ME THE CONTRACT
ON THE GUY WHO DID IT.

HOW ABOUT YOU GIVE US
THAT NAME?

KENNY SOTO‐MAYOR.

IS THAT A PART
OF SOME DRUG WAR,

THIS KENNY WHACKING RIVERA?

NAH.
THIS IS STRICTLY FREELANCE.

KENNY WAS A COLLEGE KID ‐‐

HUNTER OR FORDHAM,
ONE OF THEM PLACES.

I COMBED THE FIVE BOROUGHS
LOOKING FOR HIM.

AND WHAT HAPPENED
WHEN YOU FOUND HIM?

NEVER DID.
LOOKED FOR HIM FOR SIX MONTHS.

JUST WENT POOF.

HOW ABOUT HIM?

YEAH, BOGEY SCALFO,
THAT FAT, NO‐GOOD MOPE ‐‐

UH, '88, '89.

TRIED TO SINK HIS HOOKS
INTO THE ROOFERS' UNION.

THAT'S MARINOS',

SO I PACK A BOMB FULL OF THEM
BIG ROOFER'S NAILS,

I STUCK IT UNDER HIS PORCH,

BYE‐BYE PAULIE.

DID YOU REALLY THINK
THE STENCH OF PISS

WAS GOING TO BE
ANY LESS IN HERE

THAN WHAT
WE JUST CAME FROM?

POLICE!
OPEN UP AND ZIP THEM UP!

OH, MY GOD!

PUT YOUR HANDS UP!

OH, MY GOD!

OKAY, NOW OPEN THE DOOR.

COME OUT NICE AND SLOW.

BOTH OF YOU.

NOW, I CAN EXPLAIN, MAN.

SHORTY'S GOING TO EXPLAIN
WHAT HE WAS DOING

STANDING WITH HIS FEET
IN THE BAG

WHILE THIS GUY WAS
SITTING DOWN ON THE CAN.

WHAT'S YOUR NAME?

IS THIS REALLY NECESSARY?

YES.

WILLIAM KAUFMAN.

WHERE DO YOU WORK, WILLIAM?

OH, GOD. ON WALL STREET.

FOR WHO ON WALL STREET?
PARSONS AND COMPANY.

YEAH?
WHAT BRINGS YOU UPTOWN?

SHORTY ONE OF YOUR EXPERTS
IN EMERGING MARKETS?

I'M SURE YOU'RE AWARE
SOLICITING SEX IS A CRIME.

OFFICERS, PLEASE,
I HAVE A WIFE.

I HAVE TWO DAUGHTERS.

ARE WE EVER GOING TO
FIND YOU HERE AGAIN?

NO, ABSOLUTELY NOT.

TAKE YOUR BAG
AND GET OUT OF HERE.

YOU HAVE NO IDEA
HOW LUCKY YOU ARE.

YEAH, OKAY.

I DON'T GET IT.

VINCENT, THIS GUY?

THIS SHORTY'S A REAL SKANK.

MUST BE PART OF THE CHARM.

CAN'T A BROTHER
MAKE A BUCK?

SO THIS KENNY SOTO‐MAYOR
THAT KARAMAZA GAVE US,

LOOKS LIKE HE'S
A CUSTOMS OFFICER AT JFK.

CUSTOMS OFFICER.

I'M CALLING LOCAL COLLEGES
TO FIND THE KENNY SOTO‐MAYOR

THAT DROPPED OUT OF FORDHAM
IN '91.

THEY GAVE ME
HIS SOCIAL SECURITY NUMBER,

AND BCI RUNS IT THROUGH
THE FEDERAL DATABASE.

UP COMES
KENNETH SOTO‐MAYOR.

WENT IN THE ARMY
FOR FOUR YEARS,

JOINED CUSTOMS IN '95.

A LOT OF GUYS JOIN UP
TO STAY OUT OF JAIL.

THIS GUY JOINS THE ARMY
TO STAY ALIVE.

WELL, GOING OVERSEAS

EXPLAINS WHY KARAMAZA
NEVER FOUND HIM.

JOSH, STICK THIS GUY
IN INTERVIEW THREE.

WE'LL BE RIGHT IN.

RIGHT.

GOT ANY TOOTHPASTE?

YEAH, IN MY LOCKER.

YEAH, MAKE SURE HE USES
THE WHOLE TUBE OF IT

BEFORE WE TALK TO HIM.

REMEMBER THAT DEALER
RICKY RIVERA,

GOT WHACKED IN HIS CAR?

'90, '91.

THIS KARAMAZA GIVES US A NAME ‐‐
KENNY SOTO‐MAYOR.

RAN HIM THROUGH THE FEDS.

HE'S WORKING U. S. CUSTOMS
AT JFK.

MAYBE THAT'S A COVER
FOR HIM DEALING.

YOU'RE SAYING THERE'S FEDS COULD
BE INVOLVED IN DRUG DEALING?

WE'LL PUT IN A CALL
TO HIS SUPERVISOR.

LISTEN, I JUST SPOKE
WITH PERSONNEL.

LOOKS LIKE YOU WERE RIGHT.

THE NEW SQUAD COMMANDER IS
A LIEUTENANT SUSAN DALTO...

FROM I. A. B.

WE'RE REALLY GETTING SOMEONE
FROM THE RAT SQUAD?

THAT'S HOW IT LOOKS.

WELL,
THANKS FOR THE HEADS UP.

YEAH, THANKS.

WHAT'S GOING ON?

FANCY'S REPLACEMENT
IS COMING OVER

FROM THE RAT SQUAD.

THE RAT SQUAD?

LIEUTENANT DALTO
TO SEE LIEUTENANT FANCY.

DON'T I KNOW YOU?

JOHN IRVIN FROM G. O. A. L.

I'M THE P. A. A. HERE.

SWEET.

LIEUTENANT FANCY'S OFFICE
IS RIGHT BACK THERE.

WHO'S THAT?

THAT'S LIEUTENANT DALTO
FROM THE RAT SQUAD.

SHE'S REPLACING FANCY.

OH, BOY.

I KNEW I SHOULD HAVE DITCHED
THE HIPPO BEFORE SHE CAME.

AND THAT'S COMING
FROM THE SAME TRIBE.

JOHN HERE SAYS
HE'S CONSIDERING A TRANSFER.

YOU KNOW LIEUTENANT DALTO,
JOHN?

BEHIND HER BACK AT G. O. A. L.,

SOME REFER TO HER
AS THE WINE MAKER.

WHAT DOES THAT MEAN?

SOMETHING ABOUT CRUSHING GRAPES,
ONLY I THINK IT'S A METAPHOR,

IF YOU TAKE MY MEANING.

ANYWAY,
I JUST WANTED TO STOP BY

AND OFFER MY CONGRATULATIONS.

WELL, I APPRECIATE THAT.

WHILE I WAS HERE, I WAS
THINKING MAYBE I COULD LOOK

AT SOME FILES,
PERSONNEL FOLDERS, LIKE THAT.

WELL, I DON'T SEE WHY NOT.

I KNOW I DON'T GET STARTED
TILL NEXT WEEK.

I JUST WANTED
TO GET A JUMP ON THINGS.

I'VE BEEN LOOKING FORWARD
TO A COMMAND ASSIGNMENT

FOR SOME TIME.

I CAN'T WAIT TO DIVE IN
AND GET MY HANDS DIRTY.

WELL, WE'LL SET YOU UP
RIGHT IN HERE.

10‐CARDS, PERSONNEL FILES.

WHAT YOU SAW UP THERE
IN THAT BATHROOM,

OH, WE'RE SURE YOU CAN.
I CAN EXPLAIN THAT.

THAT WAS HIS IDEA ‐‐
THE MAN IN THE SUIT.

HE CAME ON TO ME.

AND THE SHOPPING BAG
ONE GUY STANDS IN

SO COPS ONLY SEE ONE PAIR
OF FEET ‐‐ THAT HIS IDEA, TOO?

SEE, SHORTY, THIS SHOPPING BAG,
THAT'S SOMETHING A PRO WOULD DO.

WE KNOW THAT BATHROOM
IS ONE OF THE SPOTS

YOU BRING YOUR TRICKS.

SO YOU GOT TO
BUST DOWN THE DOOR

JUST TO CATCH A GUY
MAKING A BUCK?

IF HE WAS PAYING YOU,

HOW COME IT WAS YOU IN THE BAG
AND HIM DOWN THERE DOING YOU?

THAT'S HOW HE WANTED IT.

YOU HAVE ANY OTHER TRICKS
THIS MORNING

BEFORE MR. ROCKEFELLER?

UNH‐UNH.
THAT WAS MY FIRST.

SEE, THAT'S A LIE, SHORTY.

NO, NO, NO. SEE, FIRST,
I PICKED UP SOME CANS.

HAD ME A DOUGHNUT.

NEXT THING, Y'ALL BROKE IN
ON ME IN THAT STALL.

YOU DIDN'T STOP BY THE BANK
ON 3rd AVENUE?

WHAT, GIVE ME A LOAN?
WHY WOULD I GO IN A BANK?

MAYBE IT'S WARM.

YOU PICKED THERE TO, UH,
LEAVE A LITTLE DEPOSIT.

IT'S NOT ME.

MAYBE YOU GOT A PROBLEM
WITH SHORT‐TERM MEMORY,

'CAUSE THAT'S YOU

DROPPING OFF WHAT'S LEFT
OF A GUY'S PENIS

YOU HACKED OFF THIS MORNING.

DON'T MAKE US BRING
THAT POOR GUY HERE

FROM BELLEVUE TO MAKE AN I. D.,

'CAUSE EITHER WAY
YOU'RE GOING DOWN FOR THIS.

NO PUN INTENDED.

YOU WANT THIS TO BE YOU'RE
JUST SOME PSYCHO, SHORTY?

YOU BROUGHT HIM UP THERE
TO CUT OFF HIS JIMMY,

AND THAT'S INTENT.

I DON'T BELIEVE YOU
BROUGHT HIM THERE TO DO THAT.

SOMETHING MUST HAVE HAPPENED.

MY USUAL IS 15 BUCKS,
SO WE GET UP THERE.

THIS GUY WANTED
TO GIVE ME $10.

THIS IS THE GUY YOU CUT?

MM‐HMM. I'M HUNGRY,
SO I GO FOR IT.

TIMES IS TOUGH,
SO HE GIVES ME THE $10.

GETS IN THE BAG.
I STARTED DOING MY THING.

NOW HE'S
GIVING ME INSTRUCTIONS,

TELLING ME
HOW HE WANTS IT.

NOW I'M GETTING IRRITATED.

I COULD SEE WHY, AFTER HIM
ASKING FOR A DISCOUNT.

EXACTLY. NOW I CAN'T
STOP THINKING

ABOUT THE 5 BUCKS
HE TOOK OFF OF ME,

SO I TAKE
5 BUCKS WORTH OFF HIM.

DOLLAR AN INCH, HUH, SHORTY?

MM‐HMM.

DOC,
HOW DID IT GO WITH VINCENT?

ALL SEWN BACK TOGETHER AGAIN?

HE TURNED IT DOWN.

SAY THAT AGAIN.

VINCENT REFUSED
THE REATTACHMENT.

WE BROUGHT IN
A PSYCH CONSULT,

BUT HE'S ADAMANT.

HEY, VINCENT,
HOW ARE YOU FEELING?

THEY GOT ME ON A LOT
OF MEDICATION.

YOU FEEL UP TO MAKING
A CONFIRMING I. D.

ON THE GUY WHO CUT YOU?
WE BROUGHT SOME PICTURES.

THAT'S HIM.

YOU'RE SURE?

SOMETHING LIKE THIS HAPPENS,

YOU DON'T FORGET THE FACE
OF WHO DID IT.

DID YOU FIND THAT BASTARD?

WE FOUND HIM
IN A SUBWAY MEN'S ROOM

HUSTLING SOMEONE ELSE.

OH, GOD. DID HE CUT
THAT MAN'S THING OFF, TOO?

VINCENT, I KNOW IT'S NOT ANY
OF OUR BUSINESS,

BUT THE DOCTOR SAID YOU
TURNED DOWN THE OPPORTUNITY

FOR THEM TO SEW YOU BACK UP.

'CAUSE YOU WERE AFRAID
OF THE PAIN?

NO. COULDN'T HURT ANY WORSE
THAN IT ALREADY DID.

DIDN'T THEY SAY YOU'D BE
BETTER OFF WITH IT REATTACHED?

LOOK, DETECTIVE,
I HAVE BEEN ROBBED,

I HAVE BEEN BEATEN
COUNTLESS TIMES,

I'VE BEEN HUMILIATED,

AND STILL
I CAN'T STOP MYSELF ‐‐

I CAN'T STOP MYSELF
FROM PICKING UP STRANGE MEN.

THE FACT THAT I'M HERE,

THAT SAYS IT ALL,
DOESN'T IT?

VINCENT,
ARE YOU SURE ABOUT THIS?

I KNOW IT SEEMS EXTREME,
BUT THIS IS HOW I WANT IT.

WHAT'S GOING ON?

THE NEW SQUAD COMMANDER
IS IN WITH FANCY.

SUSAN DALTO COMING OVER
FROM THE RAT SQUAD.

OUCH.

HER AND FANCY, THEY'VE BEEN
LOCKED IN THERE, LIKE, AN HOUR.

PROBABLY RUNNING DOWN

EVERY LAST WRONG THING
WE EVER DONE.

MAYBE SHE'S, UH,
GOT QUESTIONS ON PROCEDURE

COMING OVER FROM I.A.B.
TO A DETECTIVE SQUAD.

YEAH, WELL, FANCY HAS SPENT
MORE TIME TALKING TO HER

THAN HE DID ALL OF US
THE WHOLE TIME HE WAS HERE.

EXCUSE ME. BRADLEY ODUM ‐‐

SUPERVISOR, U. S. CUSTOMS.

Andy:
YEAH, HELLO. ANDY SIPOWICZ.

THIS IS MY PARTNER
DANNY SORENSON.

THANKS FOR COMING OVER
SO QUICK.

SURE.

THAT MESSAGE YOU LEFT
WAS PRETTY CRYPTIC.

WE DIDN'T THINK
IT WAS APPROPRIATE

TO TALK ABOUT
OVER THE PHONE.

WELL, NOW I'M HERE.

HOW LONG YOU KNOWN, UH,
KENNY SOTO‐MAYOR?

KENNY? FIVE YEARS,

EVER SINCE HE'S BEEN
A CUSTOMS AGENT.

HOW COME?

WE GOT REASON TO BELIEVE
HE'S INVOLVED IN A HOMICIDE

THAT TOOK PLACE
FOUR YEARS PRIOR TO THAT.

NO, THAT CAN'T BE RIGHT.

THE INFORMATION IS SOLID
OR ELSE YOU WOULDN'T BE HERE.

KENNY SOTO‐MAYOR IS THE FINEST
OFFICER I'VE EVER WORKED WITH.

HE'S TOUGH, HE'S HONEST,
AND HE WORKS HIS TAIL OFF

NO MATTER
HOW CRAPPY THE DETAIL.

I KNOW THIS MAYBE COMES
AS A SHOCK.

THAT'S WHY WE CAME
TO YOU FIRST.

WHO IS HE SUPPOSED
TO HAVE KILLED ANYWAY?

IT WAS DRUG RELATED.

DRUG RELATED? DO YOU REMEMBER
THAT BUST AT JFK A MONTH AGO?

40 KIs OF SMACK
COMES IN FROM PERU.

KENNY SOTO‐MAYOR IS THE ONE

WHO SNIFFED
THOSE GUYS OUT FIRST.

DOES THAT SOUND TO YOU

LIKE SOMEONE THAT GOES OUT
AND DOES MURDER OVER DRUGS?

THIS WAS A LONG TIME AGO.

WE WERE HOPING YOU WOULD
CALL HIM AND TELL HIM

WE WANTED TO TALK TO HIM
ABOUT A COLLAR WE JUST MADE.

YOU WANT ME TO LIE TO HIM
SO HE COMES IN ON HIS OWN.

OR WE CAN SEND SOMEONE
TO PICK HIM UP

IN FRONT
OF HIS FELLOW OFFICERS.

UNDERSTAND SOMETHING HERE.
KENNY IS LIKE A SON TO ME.

THAT'S HOW STRONG
I FEEL ABOUT HIM.

I KNOW HE DIDN'T DO THIS.

THIS IS SUPERVISOR ODUM.

I'M OVER
AT THE 15th PRECINCT.

CAN YOU GET
KENNY SOTO‐MAYOR OVER HERE?

LIEUTENANT, I DON'T WANT
TO TELL YOU HOW TO DO YOUR JOB,

BUT LOOKING OVER THESE FILES ‐‐

THIS IS A DETECTIVE SQUAD.

THIS ISN'T ABOUT NUMBERS
OR LOOKING GOOD AT COMSTAT.

LET'S TAKE SIPOWICZ ‐‐
HIS PAST DRINKING PROBLEM.

AND I THINK
YOU'LL FIND HIS RECORD

THE PAST COUPLE OF YEARS
IS PRETTY EXEMPLARY.

HIS LAST THREE PARTNERS HAVE
ALL HAD RUN‐INS WITH I. A. B.

SORENSON HAS HAD A SERIES
OF THEM.

YOU'RE COMING FROM I. A. B.
ANY DETECTIVE DOING HIS JOB

IS GOING TO HAVE
SOME BEEFS ON HIM.

MY COMING FROM I. A. B., I KNOW
WHAT A MESS THIS SQUAD IS.

THESE ARE GOOD DETECTIVES.

INSTEAD OF JUMPING DOWN
THEIR THROATS,

WHY DON'T YOU
GIVE THEM A CHANCE?

EASE INTO IT,
YOU'RE SAYING?

GET THEM WORKING WITH YOU.

THAT'S HELPFUL ADVICE.
THANKS FOR THE INPUT.

LET'S GET YOU INTRODUCED.

THIS IS LIEUTENANT DALTO.

SHE'S TAKING OVER
AS SQUAD COMMANDER.

SHE'D LIKE TO HAVE
A FEW WORDS.

I'M SUSAN DALTO.
I'VE BEEN ON THE JOB 18 YEARS.

THIS IS MY FIRST ASSIGNMENT
IN THE DETECTIVE BUREAU,

BUT I HAVE TAKEN THE CRIMINAL
INVESTIGATORS COURSE,

SO I THINK I'VE GOT
A PRETTY GOOD HANDLE

ON THE BASICS OF RUNNING
A DETECTIVE SQUAD.

YOU'RE DETECTIVE MEDAVOY?

UH, CALL ME GREG.

UH, MY, UH,
PARTNER BALDWIN JONES.

RIGHT. AS FAR
AS MOVING TEAMS AROUND,

MATCHING UP STRENGTHS
WITH WEAKNESSES,

LET'S JUST RELAX A COUPLE WEEKS
TILL I GET TO KNOW YOU.

CONNIE McDOWELL,
DIANE RUSSELL,

ANDY SIPOWICZ,
DANNY SORENSON.

NO OFFENSE
TO LIEUTENANT FANCY,

BUT I LIKE TO DO THINGS
BY THE NUMBERS.

I BELIEVE IN FOLLOWING RULES,
LIKE FILING DD‐5's

WITHIN THREE BUSINESS DAYS
OF CATCHING A CASE

AND MAKING ALL YOUR REQUESTS
FOR TIME OFF

FIVE DAYS IN ADVANCE.

NO CALLING IN THAT MORNING

SAYING THAT YOU DON'T FEEL
LIKE WORKING THAT DAY,

AND PERSONAL DISCIPLINE.

THAT MEANS A SHAVE FOR YOU,
GENTLEMEN,

AND PROPER FOOTWEAR
FOR THE FEMALES.

YOU NEVER KNOW
WHEN YOU MIGHT HAVE TO ACT

LIKE A POLICE OFFICER,

BUT WE'VE GOT TIME
FOR ALL THIS.

AS FAR AS I'M CONCERNED,
WE START OUT FRESH.

YOU DO A GOOD JOB FOR ME,
AND I'LL TREAT YOU WITH RESPECT.

ANYONE DISRESPECTS ME,

YOU'LL BE LOOKING
FOR ANOTHER ASSIGNMENT.

SIMPLE AS THAT.

ANYONE GOT ANY QUESTIONS?

WHEN DO YOU START?

IT'S EFFECTIVE NEXT WEEK.

LIEUTENANT FANCY WILL BE HERE
TO EASE THE TRANSITION.

I JUST WANTED TO SAY

I'M LOOKING FORWARD
TO WORKING WITH YOU, DETECTIVE.

IT'S OBVIOUS FROM YOUR FOLDER

YOU CAN BE A DAMN GOOD COP
WHEN YOU FEEL LIKE IT.

IS THAT SUPPOSED
TO BE A COMPLIMENT?

JUST CALL IT AN OBSERVATION.

KENNY SOTO‐MAYOR.

I HAD A CALL FROM MY BOSS
SOME DETECTIVES WANT TO SEE ME.

Andy: I'M DETECTIVE SIPOWICZ.

THIS IS MY PARTNER
DETECTIVE SORENSON.

KENNY SOTO‐MAYOR,
U. S. CUSTOMS.

THE BOSS SAID YOU WANTED
TO ASK ME SOME QUESTIONS

ABOUT THAT KENNEDY BUST,
HUH?

YEAH, KENNY.
WE HEARD YOU DID GOOD WORK.

LUCKY IS ALL.

WHY DON'T YOU FOLLOW US?

HEY, CAP.

THIS IS LIEUTENANT FANCY.

HE SAID IT'S OKAY
FOR ME TO BE HERE

AS LONG
AS IT'S OKAY WITH YOU.

WHY WOULDN'T IT BE OKAY
WITH ME?

WHAT'S THIS ABOUT?

KENNY, WE'RE NOT HERE TO TALK
TO YOU ABOUT THE BUST.

WHAT THEN?

RICKY RIVERA.

[ SIGHS ]

EVER SINCE IT WENT DOWN,
EVERY BREATHING MINUTE,

I'VE BEEN WAITING
FOR A KNOCK AT MY DOOR.

YOU KNOW WHAT THAT'S LIKE?

I GUESS I DON'T HAVE THE RIGHT
TO WEAR THIS ANYMORE.

PROBABLY NEVER DID.

TELL US ABOUT IT.

I WAS IN COLLEGE.

ME AND SOME GUYS
FROM THE NEIGHBORHOOD,

WE LIKED TO GET HIGH.

PRETTY SOON
WE WERE STRUNG OUT.

MY BUDDY HOOKED US UP WITH
SOME COLOMBIANS WHO RAN COKE.

I STARTED DOING DELIVERIES,

AND ONE DAY I FIGURED
I'D CUT OUT THE MIDDLE MAN,

SO I GAVE RIVERA HIS STASH,
HE GAVE ME MY CUT,

THEN I SHOT HIM
IN THE BACK OF THE HEAD.

JUST LIKE THAT?

I KNEW I SCREWED UP, YOU KNOW?
WHAT WAS I THINKING?

PLUS, THIS GUY WAS CONNECTED,

SO I JOINED THE ARMY,
GOT SENT TO GERMANY.

FIGURED YOU'D
WAIT IT OUT OVERSEAS?

YEAH, I DID IT TO GET AWAY,

BUT I LIKED THE MILITARY.
I LIKED SERVING MY COUNTRY,

AND WHEN MY HITCH ENDED
AND THE DUST SETTLED,

I DECIDED TO GO
INTO LAW ENFORCEMENT.

AND YOU'VE BEEN
A DAMN FINE OFFICER.

I WANTED
TO GIVE SOMETHING BACK,

BE SOMEONE GOOD, YOU KNOW?

LIVE MY LIFE OVER
FOR THAT HORRIBLE MISTAKE.

I ALSO KNEW THAT SOMEDAY THERE
WOULD BE A KNOCK AT MY DOOR,

AND I PROMISED MYSELF
THAT WHEN IT DID COME,

I WOULDN'T DUCK.

I GOT A FAVOR,
IF IT'S NOT TOO MUCH.

WHAT'S THAT?

WHEN YOU TAKE ME OUT,
DO I HAVE TO WEAR THE UNIFORM

SO THOSE COPS DOWNSTAIRS
CAN SEE?

WE'LL GET YOU
A CHANGE OF CLOTHES,

CUFF YOU IN THE FRONT,
LAY A COAT OVER.

THANKS.

I, FOR ONE, AM LOOKING
FORWARD TO GETTING HOME,

SPENDING MY NIGHT ZONKED OUT
IN FRONT OF THE TUBE.

I'M GOING TO TAKE KENNY DOWN
TO CENTRAL BOOKING.

MAYBE I'LL
CALL IN SICK TOMORROW.

OH, YOU GOT TO DO THAT
FIVE DAYS IN ADVANCE.

THE MARSHALS AND ME,
WE'VE COME TO COLLECT MY CLIENT,

MAKE SURE HE GETS
A GOOD NIGHT'S SLEEP AT A HOTEL

BEFORE HIS BUSY DAY TOMORROW
WITH THE U. S. ATTORNEY.

YOU JUST TELL HIM KEEP AWAY
FROM THAT ROOM SERVICE LASAGNA.

YOU NEVER KNOW WHAT'S IN IT.

WELL, I DON'T THINK
YOU NEED TO WORRY, DETECTIVE.

I'M SURE MR. KARAMAZA
WILL HAVE FOOD DELIVERED

FROM HIS OWN RESTAURANT.

HE'S REALLY GOT TO WORRY.
YOU EVER EATEN THERE?

FOR THE KIND OF MONEY
HE PAYS ME,

I WILL EAT
ANYWHERE HE WANTS.

CHARLIE,
THEY TREAT YOU WELL?

NO COMPLAINTS.

GOOD.

THANKS AGAIN FOR LETTING ME
WALK OUT LIKE THIS.

YEAH.
I'LL SEE YOU DOWNSTAIRS.

SO, I GOT A NICE ROOM
BOOKED FOR YOU AT A HOTEL.

YOU READY
TO GET SOME SLEEP?

YEAH. ALL THAT TALKING
HAS GOT ME BUSHED.

MAKES YOU SICK.

THE GUY KILLS 27 PEOPLE,
HE'S GOING TO A HOTEL.

THIS GUY WHACKS ONE NO‐GOOD,
LOUSY DOPE SLINGER,

TURNS HIS WHOLE LIFE AROUND,

HE'S GOING TO DO
25 TO LIFE.

YEAH, SOME COUNTRY.

GOOD NIGHT, GUYS.

YEAH, NIGHT, BOSS.
CONGRATULATIONS AGAIN.

HEY, THANKS, DANNY.

YEAH, GOOD NIGHT.

I DON'T WANT YOU THINKING
I'M NOT HAPPY FOR YOU,

IF THAT'S HOW IT SEEMS.

WELL, THANKS, ANDY.

YOU KNOW ME.

IT TAKES ME A LONG TIME
TO GET USED TO SOMEONE,

PLUS I MAY NOT BE
THE EASIEST GUY

TO GET ALONG WITH MYSELF.

ALL THINGS CONSIDERED,

I THINK
WE'VE DONE ALL RIGHT.

I THINK
THE LAST COUPLE OF YEARS

WE GOT AN UNDERSTANDING.

MAYBE I'VE BEEN
ON THIS JOB TOO LONG.

TOOK NINE YEARS
BREAKING YOU IN.

NOW LOOK WHAT I GOT.

OH, THINGS HAVE GOT A WAY
OF WORKING OUT.

SHE CAME ON TOO STRONG.
SHE'LL LEARN BETTER.

ANYWAYS, THAT'S NOT YOUR
PROBLEM NO MORE, IS IT?

NINE YEARS WITH THIS SQUAD,
AND YOU THINK I DON'T CARE?

IF I AM RETAINED
AT THE BUREAU,

YOU COME TO ME.

YEAH, MAYBE WE CAN
TALK IT OVER

BACK AT THAT RIB JOINT.

HOW ABOUT THIS TIME
WE HAVE ITALIAN?

YOU'RE A DAMN GOOD COP,
ANDY.

YOU TAKE CARE OF YOURSELF.

YEAH.

ANYWAYS, I GOT TO GET DOWN
TO THE CENTRAL BOOKING.

CONGRATULATIONS...

CAPTAIN.
