Out of Time

Out of Time

Matt Lee Whitlock, respected chief of police in small Banyan Key, Florida, must solve a vicious double homicide before he himself falls under suspicion. Matt Lee has to stay a few steps ahead of his own police force and everyone he’s trusted in order to find out the truth.
LENO ON TV: In St. Petersburg,
Florida, a 52-year-old man
let these two young women
into the house.
These two blond, pretty girls
knock on the door…
(PHONE RINGING)
They get in the guy’s house,
they lift up their tops
and expose themselves
to the guy.
Chief Whitlock.
ANN: Chief Whitlock, it’s Ann.
Ann Merai Harrison.
Somebody just
broke into my house.
All right.
Be right over, ma’am.
(CHATTER OVER POLICE RADIO)
How you doing, Miss Harrison?
Chief.
You okay?
I’m fine.
Mind if I come in?
Come in.
Thank you.
Oh, boy.
Did you, uh, get a good look
at this fellow?
Yeah.
He was, um, about your height.
Your weight.
Come to think of it,
he kind of looked like you.
Looked like me?
So he was good-looking?
No.
Okay.
Sorry. Just not my type.
So this ugly man, you know
how he got in the house?
The bedroom window.
It’s all right
if I come in your bedroom?
Yeah. Come in.
Why don’t you tell me
what happened?
Okay. I was asleep.
But, um, then I woke up,
’cause I felt something.
I saw the window was open,
and, um, he was standing
right where you are.
Right here?
Mmm-hmm.
You sure? Okay.
All right, so what did he do?
He… He came toward me.
He came toward you?
Uh-huh.
Like this?
Uh-huh.
Then he grabbed me.
Where?
Right here.
Like that?
Uh-huh.
But he was much stronger
than you.
(ANN GASPS)
Like that?
Uh-huh.
He forced himself
on top of me.
Like that?
And his breath smelled like
he’d been drinking on the job,
kind of like yours.
Really? What happened next?
He kissed me.
Where?
Where, baby?
And he stripped me naked.
Sorry, I was confused.
He ripped my shirt off.
You didn’t put up
much of a fight, did you?
Oh, really?
I didn’t put up
much of a fight?
So you took control?
What did you do next?
What did you do, baby?
Watch me.
Tell me
what you did next, baby.
(MOANS)
TONY OVER RADIO: Chief?
Hey, Chief,
you’ve got to get down
to the Scuttlebutt.

We’ve got a situation here,
and it’s about to blow.
Chief?
Yeah, Tony, what’s up?
Where are you, Chief?
Can you get here?
We need you to come quick.
Chief?
Okay.
Look, Tony, I’m…
Coming now.
No.
I’ve got to go, baby.
Got to go.
I’ve got to go to work.
So, we’ll pick up
on this crime tomorrow?
Okay.
What kind of crime?
Assault with a deadly weapon.
Breaking and entering.
See you later, baby.
Okay.
(SIGHS)
How y’all doing?
Good, Chief.
WOMAN: Morning.
Mathias Lee Whitlock.
Hey, how you doing, Chris?
You having breakfast
with all your friends here?
(CHUCKLING)
I would invite you, Chris,
but I don’t want to.
You know, I’d sit down,
but I don’t want to.
ANN: Did they find
us a table?
Yeah, we’re in the back.
Matt.
How you doing, Ann?
Okay. I’m starving.
Good.
Good to see you.
Good to see you, too.
Hey, Chris, try the crab.
It’s real good.
I’m allergic.
I know.
Right.
(CHATTERING ON RADIO)
How you doing, Sharlene?
SHARLENE: Hey, Chief.
Keys. What time is it?
It’s 3:00, Chief.
3:00. Let’s go.
Hey, man,
you’re out of
paper towels again.
How you doing, Chae?
Good.
Okay.
So, thought the camera
only added ten pounds.
Looks good, doesn’t it?
Kind of, in a pudgy way.
So, I thought this might
be an opportune time
to revisit my offer to invest
in that little
business venture.
Costa Rica?
Yeah. Chartered fishing boat.
Steal the evidence money?
Oh, what’s this?
You file a report on that yet?
That it?
That’s it.
Man. 485 grand.
Can I touch it?
No, you can’t.
I just want to touch it.
Get your hands out of there.
Maybe I’ll just steal it.
Maybe I’ll just
shoot you, Chae.
Yeah, yeah, yeah.
Stop thinking like a cop
for five seconds, all right?
Just listen to my proposition.
Look, we’ll take a grand out,
all right? We’ll go
to the boat show.
We’ll just walk around with
the money in our pocket,
you know?
Get a sense
of what it feels like,
to know we could buy a boat
if we were of the mind
to buy a boat.
I’ll see you in a minute.
Okay.
What do you think?
Chae.
Stranger.
How you doing?
How you doing, Alex?
I need your keys.
I’m fine, thanks for asking.
How about you?
Listen, I need your keys.
I left a couple of things.
Oh, okay.
All right, I’ll go with you.
No. Uh-uh.
Why not?
Please.
I just want to go with you.
I don’t want to get into
anything. I got a lot of work
to do today.
I don’t want to get into
anything with you.
I understand.
I know your work
is very important to you.
Are you really gonna start
with that?
Okay, I’m gonna go
in the other room and pretend
to make a phone call.
Good to see you, Alex.
Congrats on making detective.
Thanks, Chae.
Forget it. Forget it.
Even if I left
the Hope Diamond
in there,
you know,
it’s just not worth it.
Bye, Matt.
Goodbye, Alex.
Would you just give me
the goddamn keys, Matt?
They’re on the desk
right in front of you.
I’ll drop them off.
See you, Chae.
See you, sweetie.
She looks good.
Sometimes I think
you want me
to shoot you, Chae.
(CELL PHONE RINGING)
Yeah. Wait. Hold that thought.
Medical examiner.
Yeah, yeah, yeah. All right.
What kind of prick
dies at cocktail hour
on a Friday?
The nerve of some people.
Have a good one, Chae.
Yeah, see you.
Catch anything?
Hey.
Hey.
Trying to catch
my self-respect.
Figuring out what it is
I’m doing in the middle
of this threesome.
Try foursome.
You’re forgetting your wife.
She left me.
In fact, I just told her,
told her the other day…
Well, I told her today.
To come get her stuff.
So, how’s the pro-football
quarterback?
He’s up north
hunting for the weekend.
The whole weekend.
(ANN MOANING)
I got a splinter in my butt.
You okay?
I’m okay. I’m definitely okay.
It’s all right.
You still love her,
don’t you?
Huh?
You still love her, don’t you?
Yeah, I do.
Yeah, you do.
Will you divorce her?
You still got your ring on,
don’t you?
Chris needs me.
Oh, okay.
He does.
He’s lost, been that way
since he got cut
from the team.
I guess I feel sorry for him.
You remember that next time
he goes upside
your head, okay?
(CELL PHONE RINGING)
Hello.
Uh-huh.
Okay. Sure.
All right.
I’ll be right there.
(KNOCK ON DOOR)
Ann Merai. Hi.
Dr. Frieland.
This is my brother Matt.
Nice to meet you.
Pleasure.
I’m sorry to bring you
in today. I was in surgery
all day yesterday.
Please.
You can talk in front of him.
It’s fine.
Okay.
Right. Okay. Ann, I’m afraid
there’s been
a bit of a setback.
I had your tests
back yesterday.
The cancer is not
in remission. It’s come back
very aggressively.
It’s attacked your liver
and lungs.
(GASPING)
How long?
Well, that’s difficult to say.
How long?
Five, six months.
I mean,
no one can say for sure.
But I feel fine.
Listen.
There’s a counselor here
at the hospital
I’d like you to see.
She’s very good.
She’ll help you
during this period.
Thank you for coming in
on your day off.
Ann, wait.
Excuse me. Maybe you could
speak to her
about the counseling?
Listen, isn’t… I mean,
you should be able
to do something, right?
You know, what about that
experimental stuff?
Like that…
You know, like 60 Minutes?
I don’t know.
There are
alternative approaches.
Yeah?
Sure. I mean…
Let’s see.
Autologous cancer vaccines,
hematology procedures,
leukapheresis…
Leukapheresis.
Hyperthermia treatments.
Here. Take a look at those.
They’re extremely expensive,
and I got to tell you,
there are no guarantees.
Thanks.
Okay.
You all right?
Yeah.
Why didn’t you tell me, baby?
I’m sorry. I’m sorry.
‘Cause when I was with you,
I could…
I forgot about it.
For a couple hours,
I didn’t think about dying.
I understand.
You know, they’ve got
this alternative stuff.
You know, there’s a clinic
in Switzerland,
and they say…
I know. With my blood.
I don’t put much stock
in all that stuff.
They said there’s like
a 17% chance,
like a 17% success rate.
A whole 17%?
Odds are probably better
I’d hit the lottery,
which is what I’d have to do
to afford something like that.
Listen. Where are you going?
I don’t think
we should do this anymore.
Now, Ann… Ann.
It wasn’t right for me
to drag you into this.
You didn’t drag me
into anything.
I’m a big boy.
Matt, I’m dying.
I’m dying.
Thanks for the flowers.
You’re welcome.
The girls at work
were so jealous.
Glad to hear that.
I know that’s not why
you called me.
What’s up?
What’s up?
I want to show you something.
Chris didn’t hit you again,
did he?
No.
When we were married,
we took out insurance policies
on each other,
but they were only
for $100,000.
Yeah? This says $1 million.
Did you know about this?
No. I remember signing
some things, but I didn’t know
he made any changes.
Yeah, well,
he can’t get away with this.
I mean, this is fraud.
You were sick, he can’t…
No. No, I was diagnosed
six months ago.
Chris increased the policy
almost a year ago,
right after my 32nd birthday.
My mother was 33
when she died of cancer.
(CAR APPROACHING)
Oh, no.
That Chris?
Oh, my… He’s here.
Good.
Maybe he can explain this.
No. He… No…
Why not?
No, Matt.
Why not? Now’s the time.
Cause this is not the time.
When is the time?
I don’t know.
When is the time?
I don’t know.
Please. I’m sorry, baby.
Hey.
Hey.
I’m just taking the trash out.
Thought you were working
a double tonight.
Yeah. I bet you did.
How was your appointment
on Saturday?
Appointment?
Yeah, with Dr. Frieland.
What?
I didn’t have an appointment.
No?
No.
You sure?
I’m sure.
‘Cause Jay saw you
go inside his office.
He said you were going inside
with some other guy, Ann.
No, I just stopped by.
I had to ask him
some questions.
Oh, wait a sec.
Now you were there.
Were or you weren’t,
I’m not sure.
I was there,
but I had to ask him
some questions.
God damn it.
Here we go
with the lies again, Ann,
don’t we?
I’m not lying to you.
Yes, you are lying to me!
I’m not!
Start telling me the truth!
Do you wanna make this hurt,
huh?
You’re hurting me!
Why do you make me
do this to you, Ann?
You make me do this…
I’m not making you
do anything!
CHRIS: It ain’t my
goddamn fault!
It ain’t my fault!
Hey, Chris, how you doing,
football player?
Good, Mathias. How you doing?
I’m good. I’m good.
Judy Anderson called,
said she saw a prowler
in the neighborhood.
You see anything?
Na.
No?
What about your wife?
She home?
No, she didn’t see anything.
You didn’t ask her, Chris.
She didn’t say anything
about it.
Maybe I should come in
and ask her,
not that I don’t trust your
mind-reading ability, but…
Hey, Ann, how you doing?
Hi.
I didn’t see anything.
Okay?
Okay.
I’m going to just check
the perimeter.
Go ahead.
You see somebody,
you holler, okay?
Oh, yeah.
Ann?
You have a good night.
Yeah.
ALEX: Well, we did it.
You know,
this wasn’t necessary.
No, no, my name
shouldn’t be on your house.
Anyway, I’ll buy my own
in a few years.
All right.
(CELL PHONE RINGING)
Chief Whitlock.
ANN: Hey, baby, it’s me.
Hey.
What time you get off?
I think I found a way to go to
that clinic in Switzerland.
Right.
Can you talk?
Right. Wait, hold on.
Forget it, forget it…
No. Excuse me. I’m sorry.
Oh, no, no, no. I…
You know, I’ve got to go,
so… Tell her I say hi.
Bye.
(BELL TOLLING)
Hello?
Is this a bad time?
Can we talk?
Yeah. Yeah, no, no. It’s no…
‘Cause you’ve
got to hear this.
It’s incredible.

Okay. I name you
the beneficiary
on my life insurance policy.
No, no. Not me personally.
You name The Living Gift
as your beneficiary,
after, of course, we purchase
the policy from you.
And you…
I mean, The Living Gift
collects on the policy
when I die.
As the beneficiary, yes,
we collect on the policy.
So, you make a profit
if she dies? Is that legal?
Well, we wouldn’t be here
if it wasn’t.
So, how much do I get?
I know the amount depends on
how long your medical staff
says I have to live.
How about a ballpark figure?
MATHIAS: $750,000.
ANN: I know.
Even if they have to repeat
the treatment several times,
there’d still be enough money
left over for us
to go somewhere.
Like the Conch Festival
in Key West?
No.
Clambake in Opa-Locka?
No! Europe.
Europe?
Yeah. Or Africa.
I’m going to beat this.
You watch.
(BANGING ON GLASS)
Hey. Hey!
Richard Petty,
give me a hand, man.
Hey, man, watch it.
Don’t slip. Watch that blood.
Come on, Ann, talk to me.
Their investors won’t let them
buy any new policies.
The Living Gift?
Mmm-hmm.
Well, we can
go somewhere else,
get somebody else to buy it.
I can’t. There’s only
two days left to change it.
What do you mean?
There’s some provision
that says the beneficiary
can’t be changed after a year,
and that’s in two days.
Well, maybe we call down…
It’s too late!
Hey, Ann, listen…
Don’t, don’t. Don’t.
This is not fixable.
Just go, Matt.
Just go.
CHAE: What the hell did Alex
pick up from your place
the other day?
I don’t know.
Well, over for sure now, huh?
Yeah, I mean, she left
something so she had a chance
to come back and see you.
See if she still had feelings.
Based on what I saw,
she didn’t have any feelings,
except anger.
I think you’ve had enough.
I’m trying to help you here.
I think one of your patrons
here has been over-served.
I may have to cite you
on that, Helena.
See you tomorrow, Chae.
See you tomorrow.
Man. Busting my chops,
Mr. Drinking-On-Duty.
I’ll see you later.
Good night.
HELENA: Take it easy.
Let me get you
a refill there, Chief.
No, I’m good. I’m good, Chris.
Come on. It ain’t a bribe.
Just a beer.
Could I get two of whatever
he was just drinking?
HELENA: Sure.
Thank you.
Let me ask you something.
That night
when you were out there
looking for that prowler,
did you see anybody?
No, I didn’t.
‘Cause I had this feeling
when I got home
that Ann
was with some other guy.
Really?
Yeah, and I think
he snuck out the back
when I got home.
No, I didn’t…
I didn’t see anybody.
I’ll tell you what, though.
Next time that little pussy
comes around…
Little pussy?
Sure.
The guy
scurries out the back door
the second he hears my voice.
“Scurries”? Boy.
Yeah.
You know,
I could almost respect a man
who had the balls
to confront me,
tell me,
“Yeah, I’m banging your wife.”
Maybe this guy…
Maybe there’s nothing
he would rather do than,
you know,
to tell you that you’re
a lousy husband, and that
you don’t deserve Ann.
Maybe there’s nothing
he would rather do
than to walk up
into your face,
look you right in the eye,
and say to you,
“Chris, I’m banging your wife.
Good.”
Maybe. You know, maybe…
Maybe your wife won’t let him.
I’d respect him at least.
And if he did that,
then I’d go up to him,
look him in his eye,
and I’d say,
“Just come near her again
“and I’ll kill you.”
Oh, Chris. Wow.
You’re talking to
the wrong guy, Chris,
’cause as a police officer,
I can’t let you go around
threatening people’s lives.
I mean, if you’re serious,
then I would be obligated
to do something about it.
Really?
That’s right.
Thanks for the beer
and the conversation.
Thanks for listening.
Okay.
You give Ann my best,
if you can.
ANN: You been waiting long?
Hey.
Sorry about last night.
Okay.
You must really be mad at me.
God, I used to love
coming out here with you.
I thought I was the shit,
being a freshman
making out with a senior.
You were.
Still are,
quiet as it’s kept.
I guess I was.
Yeah.
Here.
What’s this?
My going-away present.
Going away?
Insurance policy.
Making me the beneficiary?
Come on, Ann.
Yes. Yes, you can.
Ann…
Buy that fishing boat
you and Chae
have always talked about.
Right. Right.
Here.
No. No. I’m leaving tomorrow.
What?
I’m leaving town tomorrow,
and…
I got to get out of here.
I need to get away from Chris.
I need some peace.
(DOORBELL BUZZING)
Chief Whitlock.
Yeah, how can I help you?
You just did, buddy.
How you doing?
Good.
Take this.
Meet me at my house.
What is it?
It’s a gift to you.
Switzerland.
Huh?
It’s money.
What money?
That drug money?
Matt, no, no. Oh, my God.
What if they want it back?
They can’t. By law, the money
has to stay in the custody
of the arresting department
until the appeals process
is over.
The kind of money
Scarcetti has,
it could take years.
But Tony and the guys…
They think I’m putting it
in a safe deposit box.
Already thought about that.
Now, what time
does Chris get home?
11:30.
Look,
go to your house, pack a bag,
meet me at my house, 11:00.
Okay.
You okay?
Uh-huh.
See you later.
Ann?
Oh, hey.
What are you doing here?
Barbara. All pissed off
about something.
Got to wait her out.
Hey, listen, listen.
You see anybody come in here?
No.
You sure?
Okay. All right, why don’t you
head on over
to the Scuttlebutt?
‘Cause they cut me off,
no thanks to you.
Just go to the Scuttlebutt.
Just tell them Chief Whitlock
said everything’s okay.
That’s the first place
Barbara’s going to
look for me, man!
She won’t look there.
Yes, she will!
Well, can I get
my cigarettes?
See you later,
I’ll send them to you.
(PHONE RINGING)
(PHONE RINGING)
(DOG BARKING)
(SIRENS WAILING)
(MEN CHATTERING)
Tell Engine Two to lay it out
and start attacking it
from the back!
Right!
Go, go, go!
Roll it out!
Let’s get moving, boys!
WOMAN OVER RADIO:
1919 on 415 Don Juan.
That’s about four miles
outside of town.
MAN OVER RADIO: Gotcha.
Go! Let’s keep moving!
Aim the hose right there!
Mathias, you all right?
I know it’s hard to take.
I’ll grab you a cup of coffee.
MATHIAS: Was it an accident?
MAN: I don’t know. Maybe.
Thing about these
propane tanks is, they just
don’t blow for no reason.
You know?
Man, this place
was an inferno.
Those poor folks
didn’t have a chance.
Hi, Chief.
Chief.
What are you doing here?
I’m a homicide detective
and there’s two dead bodies.
So what happened?
They think
the propane tank blew.
You know who they are?
I think
it’s definitely “were.”
Right, Chae.
Hey, Mathias, check it out.
Definitely arson.
ALEX:
No, it was definitely arson.
Definitely.
Yeah, well,
that’s what I’m thinking.
The closer I stay
to the scene, the better.
Oh, yeah, it’s possibly
a double homicide,
which means we’re gonna have
to take this thing over.
Chief?
Yeah.
Hey, Chief, listen.
All right, Judy Anderson’s mom
is visiting from Orlando.
Now, last night, Judy called,
said her mom saw somebody
sneaking around this place.
I checked it out,
I didn’t see anything.
Well, we should probably tell
Alex about it,
don’t you think?
Yes. I’ll tell her.
You get on back to the office.
Oh, come on…
Back to the station,
I’ll tell her.
Hey, Chief.
Yeah. Yeah?
They want me
to run my investigation
out of your place
for the next 24.
Okay.
And I’m gonna need your help,
you know, background
on the vics, people they knew.
Need a tour guide?
Pretty much.
Are you cool with that?
Yeah, okay. No problem.
Are you sure?
No problem at all.
All right.
Why don’t we ride back
and you fill me in
on the Harrisons?
Meanwhile, my boys will
set up at your place.
Okay.
Great.
Hey, Matt, I just wanted
to say I’m really sorry
about the timing.
What do you mean?
With the papers,
and then this today.
The divorce papers?
Yeah.
I probably should have
called you before.
That would have been nice.
I know.
Well, but it has been
eight months. Don’t you think
we need some closure?
I really don’t want
to talk about it.
Thanks for opening up.
So, let’s talk about
the Harrisons then.
Either of them
screwing around on the side?
I don’t know. Is anybody
happily married these days?
These have already
been gone through.
Right. Yeah. He was supposed
to get off at 11:30.
Right. Mr. Harrison.
So, basically, you don’t know
if Mr. Harrison
even came to work or not.
Hold on one second.
Hey.
Did you know she worked
as a dental hygienist
for a Dr. Shider?
Really?
Yeah.
No.
I’m gonna pay him a visit.
You wanna come?
Okay.
Um…
Okay. Thanks.
So, she quit yesterday?
Well, kind of.
Ann Merai had terminal cancer.
Really?
Yeah, I think she was
trying to keep it quiet.
Anything else you
could tell us, Dr. Shider?
Anything?
I think
she was having an affair.
Did she actually tell you
she was having an affair?
Well, we don’t really
talk a lot, you know.
I mean, we…
Mainly just, like,
what’s happening
on our stories,
and stuff like that.
But I just got the feeling,
you know.
Like, sometimes when she’d be
on the phone,
she would talk real quiet
and stuff, and…
Whisper?
Did you ever see him,
or did she ever tell you
who he was?
No. No. But he was classy.
About a week ago, she got this
real big thing of flowers
from Rosie’s.
Really nice.
I mean, it was beautiful.
Remember, Bruce?
But I met her husband once,
and he just doesn’t seem
like the type of guy
to send flowers.
Right.
Rosie! Hey.
Yeah. Chief Whitlock.
Listen,
we’re trying to find out
if some flowers were sent
to an Ann Merai Harrison
last week, sent to her office.
Yeah, Harrison.
Yeah, check and see
if one of your guys sent them.
ALEX: Donovan? What hospital?
SHIDER: Mercy Med.
Mercy Med.
Ah!
Chris Harrison. Her husband.
Her husband.
Yeah. Okay.
Thanks a lot, Rosie.
Yeah. No, that’s all.
Okay. Thank you, Rosie.
If you’d like
to make a call…
You ready?
I guess so.
Okay. All right.
Thank you for your help.
Sure.
Thank you.
Thank you.
Dr. Shider, if you think
of anything else,
here’s my card. Thanks a lot.
Please don’t do me
like that, Matt.
You knew I wasn’t finished.
I’m sorry.
Dr. Shider gave me the name
of Ann Merai’s doctor.
I want to find out
more about her cancer.
You can drop me off
back at the station.
You really don’t like
being around me, do you?
No, no, no.
I just, you know…
Seems like there isn’t
any reason for both of us
to be wasting time
at the doctor’s office.
Why not? What’s so pressing
that you have to do?
Not so pressing, I just…
You know.
I do have a job.
I am Chief of Police.
Yeah, of a
four-person department, Matt.
You see, that’s the problem
between the two of us,
you know?
You think your job
is more important than my job.
No. Never said that.
Yeah, you did.
Yeah, I know
you never say it directly,
but in indirect ways
you say it to me.
That’s why you wanted to leave
Banyan Key to go to Miami,
so we could be
closer to your job.
The important job, right?
Really, really?
And you never said that
the commute was taking
too much time away from us?
Hey, I didn’t have
a problem with that.
Oh, you didn’t?
(PDA BEEPING)
So I’m hearing things now?
Whatever, whatever.
Oh, is that the reason
why you’re not coming with me?
Is that your date paging you?
It’s one of my four officers
who’s checked in.
It’s a tracking device.
And you can tell on that?
That’s what it tells me. GPS.
We’re all tied into it.
The mayor’s brother
sells them, so we spent
half the budget on them.
See, if we were moving,
you’d see it tracking.
Sorry.
It’s okay.
If we were moving right now,
it would show us tracking.
Great.
Well, why don’t we drive
to the doctor’s office,
and I can see how it works?
Okay.
Okay.
(ANNOUNCEMENTS OVER PA)
Listen, I’m gonna go
to the bathroom.
I’ll meet you in there.
Hi.
WOMAN: May I help you?
Yeah. Dr. Donovan’s office.
Her office
is on the third floor.
Thank you. Ramona?
Ann Harrison
didn’t have cancer.
Are you sure?
Well, not counting the time
she spent in Atlanta,
Ann Merai has been my patient
since junior high school.
If she had cancer,
I’m sure I would have
known about it.
I don’t get it.
Maybe she saw another doctor.
She was here for her yearly
when she first got
back to town two months ago,
and she was healthy
as a proverbial horse.
DONOVAN: I’m looking
it over here, and…
I don’t understand.
Who told you she had cancer?
Excuse me.
So…
Can I help you?
Yeah, I’m looking
for, uh, Dr. Frieland.
You’re looking at him.
You’re Dr. Frieland?
Yes, I am.
Look, hold on, Pop.
Some guy just…
You sure? This is your office?
Well, it has been
for ten years, yes.
Okay, okay.
Look, I’ll get back to you.
You had a patient named
Ann Merai Harrison?
Look, I’m afraid
I really can’t tell you that.
No, you can tell me.
Ann Merai Harrison.
Was she your patient or not?
No, you see, I…
Was she your patient or not?
Sir, you don’t understand…
Was she your patient or not?
No, I’ve never had
a patient by that name.
You sure?
Yeah. Yes, I’m sure,
I’m very sure.
Yeah, I would know that.
Okay, I’m sorry.
That your pen?
Pen?
Yeah, that’s my pen. Yes.
Do you use it much?
No, not very much.
You don’t mind
if I take it, do you?
No, no.
No, you can have the pen.
Sure. It’s yours.
Take it. It’s yours.
ALEX: Right.
Right.
No, I know that part.
Hang on one sec.
Did you get a checkup
or something?
No. Just bad coffee.
All right.
Hey. No, just tell them,
you know,
they’ve got to stop lagging.
We need those
phone records now.
All right. Thanks.
You all right?
Yeah.
We all good? Fantastic.
COP: Okay.
How’s this one, ma’am?
You fixed his nose already?
Just wonderful.
JUDY: Oh, hey, Chief.
Hey.
How you doing, Judy?
I’m fine, thanks,
you know, considering…
Alex, we’ve got
an eyewitness here.
Mrs. Anderson, this is
Detective Diaz-Whitlock.
Mrs. Anderson
has a composite…
Well, just…
We’re on top of it.
Hey, Chief.
Yeah?
I told them how Judy’s mom
saw somebody
sneaking around
the Harrison place last night.
Did you?
Yeah.
Got them right over there
sketching it out for us.
…the guy she saw outside
of her window
the night of the fire.
That’s her right there?
Yeah.
Okay. All right.
Good job. Good job.
Chief, Chief, Chief.
Check this out.
Sketch of a prowler out to
the Harrisons’ house
last night.
Take a look.
Yeah.
Ring any bells?
Hi, Tony.
TONY: Hey.
No. I mean, no.
He looked like him.
Like who?
Like him.
Like me?
Yeah, yeah. You.
Mom, he’s the Chief of Police.
So he was black, ma’am?
Yeah, he was black.
Wait a minute, wait a minute.
Maybe… Maybe him.
Maybe…
Mrs. Anderson, thank you.
Thank you very, very much.
You’re very, very helpful.
Anyway…
I… I’m so sorry.
I understand.
Don’t worry about it.
Mother was raised
in a different time.
Don’t worry about it.
Don’t worry about it.
We’re on top of it, okay?
Good. Need to talk to you, T.
I appreciate you coming down.
I am so embarrassed.
I don’t mean to…
Pardon me.
Please, you’ve got to stop.
All right, listen, I want you
to take this up
to Miami for me, okay?
I want you to give it
to a Detective Gissen.
Gissen?
Gissen, right.
I’m gonna give you
his phone number.
Tell him I need
prints on that ASAP.
Is it for this thing?
Yeah.
WOMAN: Excuse me, Chief.
Yeah.
An Agent Stark from the DEA
is on line one for you.
Who?
Agent Stark.
Said it’s about
the Scarcetti case.
Thank you.
Yeah.
Chief Whitlock.
STARK: Hey, Chief Whitlock.
Agent Stark, DEA.
How you doing?

Busy.
Yeah, you and me both, pal.
Listen, I understand you guys
are holding the evidence
in the Scarcetti case.

Great. That makes you
my new best friend.
Listen, I’m gonna send
a couple of agents
down there this afternoon
to pick up that cash.
We think it was used last year
in a sting operation
with Paolo Estaban.

If we can tie
the serial numbers
to the bills you guys have,
then we can tie Estaban
to Scarcetti.
This is of
top priority for us, Chief.
And with this
piece of evidence,
we’re pretty sure

we can kill two birds
with one stone,
nail Estaban and Scarcetti.

And it may lead us
to some other cases.
Well, I tell you what.
Why don’t I call you tomorrow,
and we try
to figure out a time…
Whoa, Chief,
this had to be done
the day before yesterday.

Now, we got a court date
coming up next week,
and I don’t…

The evidence has to stay
in my possession until
the appeals process is over.
Listen, Chief, I didn’t
call you to get a lecture on
the rules of evidence, okay?

Now, we, i.e.
the United States government,
need to check
the serial numbers
on that cash,
and that’s just
what we’re going to do.
Now, when I hang up on
you in ten seconds,
I want you to sit down
and type up a chain
of evidence receipt.

One of my men will be
more than happy
to sign it for you

when they get down there
this afternoon.
Oh, yeah, and, Chief…
Yeah?
It’s been ten seconds.
Chief, you okay?
Yeah. Yeah, I’m fine.
Just tell Gissen that I need
those prints really quick.
Okay? Really quick.
Well, Chief, if you need them
that quick,
I’m sure Alex can…
No, we don’t want
to give them to Alex.
Just do what I told you, okay?
Sorry, you know,
I just thought if she got…
(SHOUTING) Just do it!
All right. Okay. All right.
I’m sorry. I’m very sorry.
I’m very sorry.
Just go there, stay there,
and call me
as soon as they’re done.
Okay, T?
You got it.
ALEX: No, I’ve been on hold.
When should I call back?
Okay. Thanks.
Here you go.
Baste, my phone records.
How long can it take
to fax over
a few sheets of paper?
I don’t know.
I’ll call them again.
Hey, Alex,
I think we got something here.
ALEX: What?
Look at this entry
into the checkbook,
that last one.
Is this the only entry
you found?
Yeah, so far,
but it’s a new register.
What’s going on?
Hey.
Looks like they got
a life insurance policy,
and we got a potential motive.
Shit, the only thing is,
there’s gotta be, like,
tons of these life insurance
companies, right?
Right.
So, you got
any pull at the bank?
Sure.
Sure, you want me to
see if I can get an address?
Please.
Okay.
MAN: Hey, Sharlene, you know
that report I gave you?
No, they’re not gonna be able
to run them for at least
another half an hour.
MATHIAS: Call me
when you got something.
T.
Shit.
T.
Oh, man.
You should see the rack
on this chick
that just walked by.
Just call me, T.
Oh, my God.
(FAX MACHINE RINGING)
Those my phone records?
No, just a fax for me.
Baste, what’s up with my fax?
It’s not here.
She said she sent them.
Who’s she?
Miss White.
Who’s Miss White?
She’s a supervisor over there.
I’ve dealt with her before.
Call Miss White back,
’cause they’re not here.
Alex, I talked to her a couple
of minutes ago.
I mean, you know…
Detective.
Well, Chief,
she pressed the button,
she assured me
that she sent them.
She sent them.
Well, we need to call her back
get her on the line,
and actually have her wait
as we see the fax
coming through.
Sure, boss. I’d be happy to.
BASTE: Miss White?
Hi, this is Detective Baste
with Miami-Dade.
Yeah, I just spoke with you
about the Harrison
phone records.
I haven’t received them yet.
What do you mean
you sent them?
Well, I’m staring at the damn
fax machine,
and it’s not there.
So, I’m gonna walk over there,
I’m gonna stand
right in front of it,
and if I don’t hear
the phone ring in 30 seconds,
I’m going to your superiors.
Do I need to be
more clear than that?
Do I need to be more clear
than that? Look…
Can I use your computer
for a sec?
Couple of minutes.
They just e-mailed me a bunch
of warrants I need to look up.
60 seconds.
Chief, I…
I’m not raising my voice!
You got writer’s block.
No, just working on my report.
On what?
On somebody jaywalking?
Yeah, Alex,
someone was jaywalking,
or urinating on the sidewalk,
or throwing spitballs
at a crossing guard.
I know it’s a small office,
but it’s my office.
(FAX MACHINE RINGING)
Phone records coming in. Alex.
This it?
It says “receiving,” yeah.
Oh, shit. It’s out of paper.
You’re kidding me. Oh, God.
Could we get some paper,
Sharlene?
BASTE: Anybody got any paper?
Paper, folks!
Hey, don’t all move at once.
Anybody in Banyan Key
have any paper?
It’s about 8 1/2 by 11 inches,
a little rectangle…
Here you go.
(SIGHING)
What do you do? “Start”?
Here it comes.
You know,
we got a little problem
with this machine.
It’s fine, fine.
Great. Thank you.
Let me just get over here.
Just gotta put this in.
Here.
There we go. “Start.”
There we go.
I can’t read this.
Yeah, it’s the toner.
Have her re-fax it.
No, it’s okay.
No, have her re-fax it.
It’s just the toner.
I can’t read it.
It’s okay. I can read it.
It’s okay.
No, fax it again.
It’s okay. It’s okay.
That says “Barry Thomas.”
A friend of Chris’
from high school. I know him.
That one is Will Blount.
You guys okay?
It’s okay.
This one is Frank Rose.
Frank Rose.
No, no, no.
All the boxes go to Miami.
So, the last call they made
was to American Airlines
at 8:00 pm.
Hey. Got a surprise for you.
Both of them already dead
when somebody turned them
into s’mores.
What?
Both of them?
No sign of smoke
in their lungs.
Come on.
If they’d been alive
when that place went up,
their lungs
would look like mine.
Hey, Alex, here are
the cell phone records.
Cell phone?
Yeah.
They’re on
a different database
than the land lines.
“Town of Banyan Key.
“12:34 a.m.”
305-555-0199?
ALEX: Hey, what time
did grandma say
she saw that prowler?
COP: After Leno.
What time’s Leno over?
Like 12:00, 12:30?
Hello?
This might be our guy.
Yeah.
I mean, how many phone calls
do you get after midnight,
right?
Yeah, must be
a bad connection.
All right. 555-0199.
Hold on.
Come on, come on.
Yeah. Okay. Let me see
if I can find the number
for you.
And the winner is…
WOMAN: The Nextel subscriber
you are trying to reach
is outside the service area.
Please try
your call again later.

No, I don’t have it.
Well, all right.
Obviously, whoever it is works
for the town of Banyan Key.
How do we find out
whose phone this is?
All right, I’ll…
BASTE: Just ask.
Is there anybody
even in Banyan Key?
Yeah, I’ll talk to you later.
Hey, Alex?
I’m sorry, I was kind of
drifting off there. What’d you
say that number was?
555-0199.
0199?
You’re sure it’s not 1099?
Chae, 0199.
0199? That’s weird.
That’s… That’s my
cell phone number.
Yours?
Yeah.
ALEX: Aren’t you County?
I work part-time
as a paramedic, you know,
football games, school stuff.
And you called him last night?
I don’t know. Did I?
Oh, Jesus,
I did call him last night.
Oh, Alex, I’m sorry,
that’s right,
I called him from the bar.
I wanted to see if he wanted
to come have
a couple of drinks with me.
Oh, Jesus, I’m sorry.
You’re friends with him?
Yeah, well,
I wouldn’t say that.
He’s, like, my, you know,
bottom-of-the-list guy
when you’ve got to have
somebody to drink with.
I’m sorry, man. I mean,
I would have
mentioned it earlier.
It’s just, I totally forgot.
Well, yeah,
you should have mentioned it.
I mean, you should have
told me this at the scene,
Chae.
I’m sorry, honey.
What can I tell you?
I don’t remember too much
about last night.
I had a fight with Barbara.
I’m sorry.
I was in no-good shape, okay?
You know,
check with the bartender.
I closed the place,
staggered home,
passed out in bed
next to my wife.
Believe me, I didn’t move
until I got the call
to show up at the scene.
I need a statement.
I’ll give you a statement
right now.
Oh, what?
Chae.
What’s the matter with you?
You’re like the love child
of Barney Fife and Joe Friday.
All right, a statement.
What the hell was that about?
I was sleeping with her.
Jesus.
So you…
No, no.
But they… It was all a plan,
them coming back here.
They set me up,
they planned the whole thing.
What plan? What do you mean?
What plan?
I gave her
the Scarcetti money.
God!
Shh.
Would you have given it to me
if I slept with you?
Well, any trace of the money?
None.
Oh, man, I thought I had
trouble with women.
Well, maybe you should
just tell her.
Who, Alex?
Yeah. Tell Alex.
Are you out of your mind?
I’m not telling Alex.
I mean,
look what they’ve got on me.
Motive. Ann Merai
names me beneficiary
on her insurance policy,
and I was having an affair
with her.
Opportunity.
An eyewitness saw me
outside their house
the night it blew up.
You want to hear some more?
Alibi.
Home, by myself.
That good?
Well, at least you changed
your cell phone number.
Yeah, I’m lucky. I mean,
even if Alex
wanted to believe me,
there’s so much evidence
against me,
she’d have to turn me in.
Yeah, you’re right,
you’re right.
Anyway, that’d probably
kill any chance of getting
back together with her.
Yeah, probably. What?
She walks out here right now,
she says
“Let’s call the divorce off.
“Let’s get back together.”
Man,
what are you talking about?
I’m just saying…
I’m looking
at murder charges, and…
You know, I’m just saying,
the gal’s a peach.
I don’t know what you were
thinking in the first place.
Never mind. Forget it.
Can I do anything?
You don’t think
obstruction of justice
is enough?
(CELL PHONE RINGING)
I’m on a roll.
Chief Whitlock.
Hey, they matched the prints
on the pen.
The guy’s name is Paul Cabot.
Evidently,
he’s done some time before.
They got his prints
from a criminal database.
You got an address?
TONY: Yeah.
36 Reef Road, in Kendall.
Come on, come on.
Hurry up.
You want a beer?
Nah, I’m okay.
Ho, ho, ho.
Oh, what tangled webs
we weave.
What you got?
Looks like your doctor worked
at the hospital all right,
but seems he was
in my line of work.
Son of a gun.
All right,
let’s get out of here.
Yeah, let me get the beer.
Chae, come on, let’s go.
Oh, come on,
I’ve got to get the beer.
A beer in the hand
is worth two in the fridge,
man.
MATHIAS: What are you doing?
Bottom of the ninth.
Down by a lot of runs.
I got about ten grand
in the bank.
Get you down to Costa Rica.
You can scout out
some boats for us.
You think I’m done?
Well, I appreciate the offer,
but I’m not running.
No, no.
The idea was I drive you.
Yeah, you can drive me.
Drive me back to the station.
All right.
All right.
Hey, what’s up?
Got your insurance company
on the line.
MAN: Okay, that policy number
corresponds to
a $1 million term
life insurance policy
for an Ann Merai Harrison.
Any messages there for me?
Wow.
Who’s the beneficiary?
Just a moment here.
One moment.
Let’s see. Looks like
the beneficiary is listed as
Chris Harrison, her husband.
All right. Well, thank you.
You’ve been really helpful.
Yeah, I’m sorry
I couldn’t be more…
Wait a minute.

Wait a minute.
I got a note here.
It seems that
the policy holder
requested a form to change
the beneficiary last week.

So she changed it?
Yeah. And if she did,
it hasn’t made it
into the system yet.

Okay, so what does that mean?
Is that in the mail, or…
Could be,
or it could be downstairs
in our processing center.

Waiting to be processed,
right? Can you
connect me, please?
Actually, I think
they’re still out to lunch.
All right, so, what,
call back
in like half an hour?
Sure, why not?
Thank you.
BILL: This is Bill.
Hey, how you doing, Bill?
Good.
What have you been up to?
You got no idea.
Let me ask you a favor here.
I’ve got a Capital One
credit card statement
on a Paul Cabot.
I need you to find out
the last place
he used his card.
Hey, boss,
I got something for you.
C-A-B-O-T?
Yeah. Paul Cabot.
Can you hold?
Yeah, yeah.
I’ll hold. No problem.
BASTE: I found this
wedged underneath the seat
of one of the Harrisons’ cars.
It’s a bank card receipt
to a gas station used by
a guy named Paul Cabot.
Nice. Check the phone records.
Already on it.
Paul Cabot.
Anybody know or ever heard
of a Paul Cabot?
Come on, people, wake up.
Yes? No?
No.
No.
Paul Cabot?
All right. Frank,
call the bank,
ee what they got.
No records of any incoming
or outgoing calls
to a Paul Cabot here.
ALEX: All right,
the rest of you…
BILL: Okay, Matt?
-…check every restaurant, gas
-Matt?
Yeah, Bill.
I’ve got something.
If this guy took a piss
and paid for it,
I want to know about it.
Got it.
Carl, Theo.
He’s got a reservation
at the Costa Coral Hotel.
There’s a hold on it now?
Yeah, that’s right.
He checked in yesterday.
Costa Coral Hotel.
You know where it is?
Yeah, yeah.
On Atlantic Avenue.
Yeah.
Hey, you’re a lifesaver.
Chief Whitlock?
Yeah.
Agent White.
This is Agent Fetzer.
How you doing.
We’re here to pick up
the Scarcetti money.
Agent Stark said to send
the money to his office.
My guy just left
like five minutes ago.
No, he told you
we’d pick it up.
No, he did.
He said send it to his office.
My guy just left.
It’s Fetzer. We’re here.
I sent it to his office.
Says he sent the money.
Yeah, he’ll tell you.
I talked to him.
Let me talk to him.
He wants to talk to you.
Hello.
What the hell is your problem?
I told you
to get that money ready,
that I was sending agents…
You said…
What are you, a parrot,
telling me what I said?
I know what I said.
I’m not a parrot.
No, I’m not a parrot.
I know what you said.
Where the hell is the money?
Hey, if you shut up for
five minutes, I can tell you
where the money is.
I can tell you where it is.
I sent the money
to your office.
My guy just left.
He should be up there
in about,
I don’t know, an hour
or something like that.
If you still have a problem
with that after I hang up
in ten seconds,

call your partners at the IRS,
tell them to audit me, okay?
You little bastard!
I’ll take…
Agent Stark. Agent Stark.
Agent Stark.
What? What?
I meant five seconds.
Damn it, Chief!
Sorry, I can’t hear you.
You’re breaking up.
Can you hear me?
Can you hear me?
Sorry about your phone.
Can you hear me now?
WOMAN: Costa Coral Hotel.
Good afternoon.
Hello, I just checked in
to your hotel. I’m trying
to access my voice mail.
Oh, I see.
You’re not in your room.
Yes, I’m on my cell phone.
Okay, that’s no problem.
Can you help me?
Sure.
What’s your room number?
Actually, I don’t remember.
Like I said,
I just checked in.
All right, sir.
What’s your name?
Paul Cabot.
Okay, please hold.
You’re in room 715.
715.
Yes.
Okay, thank you.
And to access
your voice mail…
Alex, we got a Paul Cabot
at a Costa Coral Hotel
in Miami.
It’s on Atlantic.
What’s the story?
He’s supposed
to be here already.
MAN: Chill.
These people work slow.
Did you get those things?
Yeah. You got a TV?
Yeah.
Watch pay-per-view.
Forget pay-per-view, man.
You got that wife of yours
under control?

Is she cool?
She’s not gonna…
She’s not talking to nobody.
She’s not going nowhere.
She’s got too much to lose,
if you know what I mean.
All right.
Damn, man.
You take a terrible picture.
Get yourself over here.
We’ve gotta get out of town.
Right, right, right.
Excuse me. How you doing?
I left my key up in my room.
A knucklehead. 715.
It’s Cabot.
Paul Cabot, 715.
Happens all the time,
Mr. Cabot.
Thank you.
Paul?
Paul Cabot, it’s the police.
WOMAN ON TV: And I fully
support that.
You know that, right?

MAN: Absolutely.
But the thing is,
if I’m gonna be a senator
by the time I’m 30,
I need to stop dicking around.
I completely agree.
One of the reasons I wanted
to come here tonight
was to discuss our future.

And I am fully amenable
to that discussion.
…all kinds of fun lately,
but, well, Harvard
is gonna be different.

Law school is a completely
different world,
and I need to be serious.

(BOTH GROANING)
(SCREAMING)
(EXCLAIMS)
WOMAN OVER RADIO:
403, request for
driver’s license info…

There’s somebody up there!
MAN: What?
Hey!
There’s somebody up there!
Oh, my God!
Where?
(PANTING)
(TV BLARING)
See you, Mr. Cabot.
BASTE: Do you have
a Paul Cabot registered here?
MAN: Cabot? Yeah.
Someone was just pushed off
the seventh-floor balcony!
ALEX: How do you know
he was pushed?
Well, I don’t know, but a man
was seen climbing back
into his room.
All right, calm down, relax.
BASTE:
Which side of the building
was it on, ma’am?
On the side of the building
where you stood?
That’s the guy!
That’s him! That’s Cabot!
I’ll take four.
You go upstairs.
Stop!
Jesus!
Mathias?
I pulled in right after you.
Did he come down?
No, nobody came past me.
Meet you in the lobby.
Okay, in the lobby.
Get these people out of here.
I’m gonna shut down
the elevators.
It’s him. It’s him!
(ALARM BLARING)
Police officer.
Straight up there. Upstairs,
upstairs! I’ll cover the back!
CHAE: No, to hell with that.
To hell with that.
You got the money?
Yeah, I got the money.
That’s great.
Where’d you stash it?
Right behind the seat.
Flight number 601,
non-stop to San Jose.
No, I’m not taking
a direct flight to Costa Rica.
Get off the phone.
Oh, come on, man,
It’s your only shot.
I gotta go.
Look, I’ll swing by
your house, I’ll pick up
some underwear, a toothbrush,

and I’ll meet you
at the airport.
Your new girl?
No.
Weren’t we supposed
to meet in the lobby?
Yeah, yeah. I just had to
come get my cell
out of the car, make a call
back to the office, you know,
checking on a lead.
Let’s go back upstairs.
Oh, no, my boys are on it.
Okay.
Hey, why don’t we
go have a talk?
Sure.
Okay.
ALEX: You got something
you want to tell me
or need to tell me?
What do you mean?
I mean, something that I
ought to know, but that
you might not want to say.
Congratulations
on making detective.
I’m proud of you.
I know I never said it,
but I am.
I know you are.
You don’t have to say it.
Anyway, that’s not
what I’m talking about.
How’d you get to the hotel
so fast?
I heard it on the radio.
So, nothing else
you want to say?
I’m gonna sign
those divorce papers for you.
No, I’m not talking…
No, I mean, I’ll get to it.
I just haven’t…
No, it’s okay. That’s cool.
Believe me, I’ll sign them.
Mathias, it’s cool, you know.
We’re in no hurry.
Are we?
I’m not.
You know what this place
reminds me of?
When we first
started going out.
Remember when we used to talk
on the phone for hours?
And you had this thing.
You’d say, “Well,
I guess that’s everything.”
And you’d hang up on me.
And then you’d call
right back.
That’s right.
What would you say?
That I love you
very much.
I liked that.
Come here.
Come here, you have
something in your hair.
(MEN CHATTERING)
Hey, Chief. Chief.
These are from Agent Stark.
He sounded kind of pissed.
See you tomorrow, okay?
Okay.
MAN: Hey, Detective,
the hotel called.
The clerk’s on his way
from the hospital.
Detective?
Call the insurance company,
see if they found out
who the beneficiary is yet.
Okay. You got it.
WOMAN: City Hall.
Hi. Accounting, please.
Sure, let me get
that number for you.
Oh, you know what? I’m sorry,
they’ve gone home for the day.
Of course they have.
Thank you.
You’re welcome.
Alex, did Cabot make any
phone calls from his hotel?
We’re waiting on them.
Okay.
Chief, the hotel called.
They left a message.
The clerk left about
half an hour ago, so
he should be here any minute.
(PHONE RINGING)
Great.
Whitlock.
(WOMAN GASPING)
Hello?
ANN: Matt.
Oh, Matt, I’m so sorry.
Ann?
I’m so sorry. I’m so sorry.
It was never…
This is a surprise.
There’s so much
I have to tell you.
I need to…
You know, you got
a lot of people
worried about you, Ann.
I know.
And we all had the funny idea
that you were dead.
I’m sorry, Matt. I’m so sorry.
I’m so sorry.
Where’s Chris?
Oh, God,
I’ve lied to you so much.
He forced me to do this.
He and his friend Paul
found out
about the Scarcetti thing.

And they stole bodies
from the morgue.
You switched
the dental records.
I had to.
I had to. They…
They said they’d kill me.
See,
Paul was a criminal, Matt.
“Was”?
Yes.
He was killed today.
They made me do this.
And, oh, my God,
now it looks like
you and I faked my death

to collect
on the insurance policy.
So, what do you want me to do?
I don’t want
to have to face them
and have to answer questions
about this.
I gotta get out of town,
but I don’t know where to go.
And I need money.
So where’s Chris?
You’re right.
I should have
come to you earlier, but…

Well, he’s there, isn’t he?
Yes.
I would have
contacted you earlier,
but I knew you would think
it was another trick.
And I don’t blame you.
See, he beat me up and…
Matt?
Yeah.
He beat me up and…
See, Paul had the money…
I have the money.
Oh, Matt.
No, I don’t want
to involve you
in any more of this.
Where are you?
I’m here at the old boat.
Okay, stay there.
I’ll meet you there.
I’ve interviewed her
twice already,
and it does match up.
Neil, Detective Diaz-Whitlock.
Hi.
Ouch. How you feeling?
I’m okay.
You’re up for answering
a few questions?
Yeah. Yes.
Yeah? You’re good?
Yeah.
You need anything else?
No. Okay.
This way.
All right, Neil,
take a seat to your left.
Here you go.
Where’s Chief Whitlock?
I don’t know.
Bathroom, maybe.
Alex, insurance company,
line two.
Detective Diaz-Whitlock.
MAN: Detective,
I got your beneficiary.
It’s a Mathias Lee Whitlock.

Thank you.
Matt.
Matt.
Agent Stark, DEA.
I’m looking for
Chief Whitlock.
How much was it?
$485,000.
And did he arrange to have it
picked up or dropped off?
(PDA BEEPING)
He told my agents he was
sending it up to my office
this afternoon.
And nobody showed.
I’m sure it was
just a miscommunication.
(PDA BEEPING)
(GUNS FIRING)
That’s a .38, Chris.
Only six shots.
(GUN CLICKING)
Give me the gun.
Give me the gun!
(GUN FIRES)
He’s gone.
You all right?
Now, give me the gun.
Wait a minute, wait a minute,
wait a minute.
Ann.
Come on now,
you said he beat you up.
It was self-defense.
There’s not
a jury in the world
that’s gonna convict you.
Now, just put the gun down.
What, you think
Chris did this to my face?
I think you should
put your gun on the floor.
What?
Put it down, Matt.
I didn’t think
I could do this, but I will.
You set this up.
Matt, put your gun
on the floor.
Are you sure?
Mmm-hmm.
Don’t do this, Ann.
Where’s the money?
CHAE: Oh, Jesus!
(CAR STALLING)
So you…
We didn’t mean anything
to each other, huh?
It’s not important. No!
Oh, that’s not important now?
So, what,
it was just all an act?
Where’s the money?
Look me in the eye and tell me
you didn’t mean any of it.
Look me in the eye and tell me
you didn’t mean any of it!
Some of it! Some of it!
All right, then.
Don’t try to confuse me!
I don’t have any choice now.
You do have a choice.
You don’t have to do this.
You do have a choice.
Matt!
I’ve known you all your life.
I know
you’re not a criminal, Ann.
You know I know you.
Now, maybe he…
Matt, stop!
What?
Okay. All right,
high-school sweetheart.
You think I’m playing?
I’m not playing, Matt.
Damn!
I’m sorry,
I was aiming for your arm.
Well, you missed! Ann…
Where is it?
Outside the door. Just…
Show me!
All right!
All right, all right.
Just calm down.
Just calm down, Ann.
Just wait a minute.
Just wait.
Don’t shoot me, okay?
Don’t shoot me.
I’m just gonna reach for it.
Show me!
Here it is.
Put it down.
Listen. Wait, wait.
Don’t shoot me.
I’m sorry.
I’m the one
that got you the money.
Now, please, Ann,
I’m trying to save your life.
It wasn’t all an act, baby.
It wasn’t.
But I can’t live broke.
Life ain’t shit
when you’re broke.
Shit!
Wait! Wait!
Ann, God, no!
Forgive me, baby.
Wait, no!
Ann!
(GUN SHOT)
Oh, my God.
Anyone else up here?
No.
How’d you find me?
Are you hit?
No, I’m okay.
I’m all right.
Hey, it’s Alex.
Get me an ambulance
and a med examiner.
No, I’m fine. I’m at the end
of Runyon Road on the dock.
Hurry.
Did you kill Paul Cabot?
No, he…
No. It was self-defense.
He was attacking me.
And I was just trying
to get the money back.
And you were just gonna
hand the money back,
just like that?
That’s what I was
trying to do, Alex.
Then what’s that over there,
Matt?
(SIRENS WAILING)
What do you got?
ALEX: Chris and Ann Harrison’s
bodies are upstairs.
The real ones.
They were both
working for Cabot.
Chief found out they were here
and he basically took care
of business, right?
Right.
Let’s move.
BASTE: Good job.
Thank you.
Thank you very much.
Your guy never showed up,
Whitlock.
Agent Stark?
Yeah.
I don’t care
if you’re injured or not.
I want that evidence money,
or you’re gonna be looking
at a case…
Where the hell is
Southeast 63rd Street
in Miami?
53rd Street, Chae.
No.
I told you 53rd Street,
not 63rd.
No, you did not.
Yes, I did.
I said Southeast 53rd…
You did not. I can quote you.
You said, “Those assholes
from the DEA
“are at 8400
Southeast 63rd Street.”
I didn’t.
I’m very sorry, Agent Stark.
What I said was,
“Those assholes from the DEA
“are at 8400 Southeast 53rd.”
63rd.
Never mind.
Just give them the money.
Give them the money.
You don’t have to count it.
It’s all there.
Have a safe ride home.
Come on.
Assholes.
It is all there, isn’t it?
Most of it.
It’s all there.
That’s a pretty good one.
Nice touch.
A little over the top.
Which part?
Your part.
My part was over the top?
Your part…
You’re the one
that came in here screaming.
What happened to you, man?
Just never leave your wife.
That’s what happened to me.
I’d take the bullet.
Be careful there. It’s
a classic, okay? That grille
work comes from France.
How you feeling? Excuse us.
PARAMEDIC: Yes, ma’am.
Did you love her?
No.
Why would you do this, then?
Because I’m…
Because I’m stupid. Because…
I thought I was doing
the right thing, trying to
help her, but it’s no excuse.
Sometimes people,
you know, do stupid things.
Especially when
they’re still in love.
Thank you.
PARAMEDIC: Let’s go.
(DOOR OPENING)
Chae?
Hello.
How you doing?
I thought you were Chae.
He called all worked up
about something.
Okay.
You want to sit down?
Yeah.
How you doing?
Good.
I asked that already?
Yes. I said I was good.
You want something?
Want a beer?
Yes.
I don’t have any left.
You can share mine, though.
So what brings you
out this way?
I just needed to move
the rest of my stuff.
Okay.
That’s cool, I guess.
The house is a mess.
CHAE: Hey, Matt.
This came for you
at the station.
Hi, Chae.
Hey.
You opened it?
Yeah.
You opened my mail?
Yeah.
Why you always
opening my mail?
Just read it.
See, they just want you
to fill out the forms, man.
“To claim amount payable
to the beneficiary
“for the sum of $1 million.”
What?
We’re rich.
We’re rich. How about that?
$1 million.
Easy, Chae.
He can’t take that money.
I can’t take the money?
Why not?
No, you can’t.
It’s a conflict of interest.
Bullshit.
Yeah, that is a conflict…
He’s the legal beneficiary.
I am the legal beneficiary.
And he’s one of
the arresting officers.
What the hell’s that
got to do with anything?
I’m one of the
arresting officers, though.
I can’t…
Tell him how much trouble
you can get in.
A lot.
It’s a million bucks!
It’s the chance
of a lifetime! No!
No, Chae. As his wife,
I’m telling you
he’s not taking that money.
As my wife?
As your wife.
Matt, come on.
Come on, don’t fall for that.
What do you mean, as my wife?
As your wife.
You said you came
to move your stuff.
I’m moving back in.
This is great.
Congratulations.
It’s kind of fortuitous.
You serious?
Yeah.
Are you gonna behave?
I’m actually afraid
to leave you by yourself.
You won the sweepstakes, man.
You can do this later.
It’s a million bucks.
Hey, come on,
let’s not lose focus.
You know, a honeymoon fund,
a nursery wing for the…
This is the golden pot
at the end of the storm thing!
Just sign it
before you go in, huh?
I’m not gonna let you
do this to yourself.
I’m gonna be sitting
right out here
when you’re finished, okay?
I can wait you out. I can wait
three minutes.
I’m a patient man.
I am a patient man.
Come on, Matt!
