04x15 - Open Secrets

It's supposed to be a good school.

Yeah, parents pumped a lot of money into it.

You know the place?

Caught a case here a while back.

What do we got?

Ten-year-old female, Jenna Wallace.

Never made it home from school.

Parents over there reported her missing an hour ago.

Any witnesses?

Crossing guard saw the girl leave the building.

Ma'am, can you tell us what you saw?

Uh, Jenna had just crossed the street, um, a white car pulled up, a two-door compact sedan, um, she got in, they took off.

Did you get a look at the driver?

No. I didn't catch the license plate either.

Does Jenna usually get picked up from school?

No, tha-tha-that's the thing... she walks home every day with her friend Stacy.

Really nice kids.

No signs of struggle, huh?

No. The way she got in the car, it seemed like she knew the driver.

I keep thinking I should've done something.

You've been very helpful, thank you.

I got a bad feeling about this one.

At least we got the make and model of the car.


Excuse us. Detective Reagan.

This is Detective Baez.

You need to find Jenna.

You need to bring her back to us.

We're gonna do everything we can.

We'd like for you two to come down to the squad room so we can ask you some questions.

The more information we get, the better chances are we can get your daughter back.

(crying): Please, you need to find my baby.

We'll do all we can, all right?

Get them down to squad, all right?

Yes, sir.


Start plastering this neighborhood with

"information wanted" posters.

I'll let Gormley know we need the whole squad on this.

We got about 72 hours to find this girl or chances are we never will.

Ms. Del Rio ran down the superintendent in the parking garage of her building.

I understand the allegations against Ms. Del Rio.

We have an eyewitness.

Elderly lady and the lighting was not great, I know that.

I'm so sorry I hurt Mr. Romanelli. I--

I'm sorry.

You put Mr. Romanelli in the morgue, ma'am.

That said, in the absence of concrete proof that you intended to kill the victim, I am prepared to offer a plea of manslaughter.

That's generous... in the normal course of events.

But not in this case, no, thank you.

I think you should confer with your client first.

The evidence is overwhelming.

Ms. Del Rio suffers from, uh, severe bipolar illness.

And she was in a manic state at the time of the accident...

You're pleading not guilty by reason of mental disease or defect.

That is very difficult to prove.

Exactly... but that's why they pay me the big bucks.

FRANK: I understand.

Thanks for the call.

That was Scotland Yard.

Please don't tell me we're going on another goodwill trip to London.

That rain's murder on my sciatica.

There is not a lot of goodwill flowing at the moment.

They've detained one of our intelligence officers, Detective Paul Hailey.

On what charge?

There was a terrorist bombing at a West End tube station.

I know that.

Hailey is being accused of entering the scene and handling evidence without authorization. He's doing his job.

Yeah! He found the cause of the blast and reported his findings.

What'd he find?


That's all I can tell you.

That's all you can tell me or all you will tell me?


I can't handle this if I don't know what's going on!

There's nothing to handle.

You know there will be.

Garrett, you are my deputy commissioner of public information.

This is private information.

So, what do we got on your end?

We're canvassing the neighborhood, checking all the surveillance cameras near the school, running all vehicles matching the description registered in the area. Good.

I'll get TARU to download their content from the past few days... Sounds like a plan.

I'm running all recent parolees. Here you go, Reagan.

Thank you.

Checking the s*x offender registry... see if there's any twists living in the neighborhood.

Hey, Detective.

Mr. Scott... um... my new partner, Maria Baez.

Joseph. Good to meet you.

So, you heard, it's happened again.

Yeah, I heard.

Uh... we caught the case in fact.

That's great. It's the same school.

It's the same time of day.

Am I missing something?

Joseph's daughter Allie was abducted from the same school seven years ago.

Seven years, two months, 14 days.

Danny worked 'round the clock to find Allie.

He puts up with me... coming by, chewing his ear, giving him updates.

Yeah, unfortunately, I wasn't able to bring Allie back to you.

But this is a big break, right?

I mean, whoever took this girl, maybe they know something about my Allie.

(Danny sighs)

You know, we kind of went over this before.

The odds of finding somebody after all this time...

I know the statistics.

I also know in my heart that Allie's out there somewhere.

She has to be.

Don't give up on her, Danny.

(siren chirps)

DANNY: This a recent picture of Jenna?

It's her school photo.

They took it last month.

Do you know if she's had any, uh, incidents lately, fights, arguments with anyone?


She's a sweet girl.

The crossing guard said it looked like Jenna might have known the driver who picked her up.

That's not possible.

All right.

We need you to write down any adults your daughter might have come in contact with, okay?

Coaches, crossing guards, teachers, counselors, whatever you can think of, okay?

(scoffs) Nobody we know would do something like that.

With all due respect, you don't know that.

There's a lot of bad people out there.


(door opens)

Hey, you should go easy with these people.

I told them the truth.

They are scared enough without hearing about what people are capable of, Danny.

I'm not gonna lie to them.

There's a good chance this is gonna go bad, okay?

So they should be prepared for that.

And if that happens we'll deal with it, but for now, hope is all these people have.

Right, like Joseph Scott?

That case was seven years ago and you did everything that you could.

I told that guy to have hope. Now look at him.

He can't move on with his life.

It's like he walks around with that look on his face like he's in a bad movie.

I'm not gonna do that to these people.

ERIN: So, in addition to your private practice, you lecture at Columbia?

I'm a professor of law and psychiatry.

Well, Amanda Harris speaks very highly of you.

I've testified for her many times over the years.

Never lost a case.

Obviously the case against Ms. Del Rio hinges on her mental state at the time of the incident.

Bipolar illness is a serious disorder, but in my experience defense attorneys tend to exaggerate the severity of their clients' symptoms to keep them out of jail.

Well, in this case, defense counsel is particularly aggressive and he does his homework.

I'm confident I can handle anything the defense throws my way.

Great. I'll have the file sent over to your office and arrange for you to interview the defendant.

Don't worry, Ms. Reagan.

I've never let this office down.

I don't intend to start now.

I think it's all just a misunderstanding, Mr. Mayor.

Nothing for you to worry about.

Nothing I can't handle.

No, sir.

Yes, sir.

I'm sorry, I have to go.

I have a meeting.

No, sir, it's not about this.

It's just a ceremonial nuisance.

You'll be the first to know.

FBI Assistant Director Tomasetti's here.


Let's have him.


We got a hell of a situation here, Frank.

Oh, I don't know why.

There's no evidence my officer did anything wrong.

The Brits are threatening to kick all U.S. intelligence personnel out of the country.

Well, we both know that's not gonna happen, Jason.

They're just pissed off.

I can't say I blame them.

We had agents on scene.

You have officers on the Joint Terrorist Task Force.

You would've been briefed on any relevant terrorist threat.

I'm responsible for protecting the number one terrorist target in the world.

So you'll understand if I choose to decide what is and isn't a relevant threat.

No other U.S. city maintains its own independent intelligence force.

No other city lost

3,000 people to terrorism.

Homeland Security has their hands full.

A vast number of security priorities.

I have one...

...keeping my city safe.

End of discussion.

You can expect a call from the director.

Happy to take it.

(door opens)

(door closes)


ERIN: Nicky?

I'm home.

I got souvlaki from Grammatico's.

I thought you were stopping by Grandpa's tonight.

That's tomorrow.

Is everything okay?

Yeah, I was just studying.

Hey, I'm Ben.

Hi, I'm Nicky's mom.

Ben's in my physics class.

We've got a unit exam tomorrow, so...

You usually study at the dining room table.

I should go.


Stay for dinner.

It's okay. Right, Mom?



Let's eat.

(phone rings)

Here you go.

Is Jenna gonna be okay?

Uh, we're trying really hard to find her, Stacy.

So you two walk home together every day?

We live in the same building.

What happened today?

Why didn't you walk home today?

We left school like we usually do, but she left her art project in school.

I couldn't wait 'cause I had a violin lesson.


I should have waited.

No. It's not your fault.

I mean...

I told her to just bring the art project home tomorrow, but she said her stepfather would be mad.

Her st...

Mr. Wallace is her stepfather?

Yeah. But they don't really get along.

He has a really bad temper and he's always yelling at Jenna and punishing her for no reason.

Okay. Okay.

Well, thank you for bringing her in.

If we need anything else, we'll be in touch, okay?

And thank you for your help.

I'll run a triple-I on Mark Wallace.

Check for any domestic incidents or complaints from their address, all right?

Like I said, there are a lot of bad people out there.

Turns out Mark Wallace was married once before.

Got arrested five years ago on a domestic for pushing around his first wife.

He's got a history of violence? I spoke to the ex.

She said, when he was slapping her around, they were fighting about kids.

How many kids they have?

None. Wallace never wanted to have any.

Thought that they would get in the way or ruin their relationship.

If he didn't want kids, why'd he go marry somebody else who had a kid?

Probably thought he could deal with it.

Guess he thought wrong.

Dr. Raskin, in your expert opinion, was the defendant responsible for her actions on the day of the incident?

After studying Ms. Del Rio's medical history and examining her directly, it's my opinion that the effects of her bipolar illness were insufficient to cause such a violent outburst.

Thank you, Doctor.

May it please the court.

Dr. Raskin, my client's medical history comprises more than 3,000

pages right here.

And you've had it for less than 48 hours.

How much of it did you actually read?

Enough to draw a reasoned opinion.

So you read the section about her time at the Rowe Psychiatric Hospital?


That's over half the file, Doctor.

And was the 12-minute session that you had with my client enough for you to draw a reasoned conclusion?

That's not a lot of time, Dr. Raskin, 12 minutes?

I've been in clinical practice for 26 years.

I've treated scores of bipolar patients.

Then you must know that no two cases of bipolar illness are the same.

Yes. I also know that your client's statement to police exhibited little sign of delusional thinking, which one would expect had she been delusional during the incident.

Do you think mental illness can ever cause someone to commit a crime?

Yes, just not in this case.

And that's based on your so-called thorough examination of my client and your partial perusal of her medical history, right, sir?

No further questions, Your Honor.

Inspector General Peterson, the commissioner is expecting you.

Thank you.


Angela Merkel's cell phone.


The NSA tapped the German chancellor's private cell phone.

I'm sure they had their good reasons for it, but I'm also sure you can't find anyone outside the NSA who thinks it's a good policy.

This is not that.

Then tell me what this is.

A detective from our International Liaison Program was accused of tampering with a crime scene, but he was not in fact tampering.

He was just doing his very important job.

Says you.

That's right.

We need to know what's out there before it comes here.

And who besides you knows the full inner workings of the program?

I consult with the mayor and my deputy commissioners when it is appropriate.

Which, I'm guessing, is never.

It is not on our published schedules, but it is not never.

Even the FBI and the CIA are subject to congressional oversight.

That's their problem.

Frank, it's my job to make sure the public understands what the NYPD is doing in its name.

Not in this instance.

You're gonna have to do better than that.

The ILP works because the information is tightly controlled.

There are no leaks. And it's gonna stay that way.

But I can assure you we do not have a wire up on the German chancellor.

You think that I kidnapped Jenna?

That's not what I said.

I'm just covering all my bases here.

Want you to tell me about you and Jenna's relationship, okay?

I'm sure it's got to be hard being a stepparent and all.

Tell me about it.

I mean, you have no real power over them, and believe me, they know it. Right.

So you two probably got into it. Sure.

But it was nothing out of the ordinary.

Look, I would never hurt Jenna, okay? Never.

Or course not.

Though you did have an incident with your ex-wife a few years ago.

All right, that was a misunderstanding.

Okay. Incident report says you shoved her against a wall causing bodily harm.

She says it's 'cause you didn't want kids.

It was a little more complicated than that, all right?

Look, Ellen had a drinking problem, okay?

I was halfway out the door when it happened.

It's okay.

You're a drug rep, it says here.

That's what you do for work?

Yes. I was, uh, picking up some samples in Connecticut.

I was on my way home when I heard about Jenna.

Right, the warehouse said you signed for a package at 12:40 p.m.

And you headed straight back to the city?

No, no. I did some errands.

Didn't get back till after 4:00.

Got it.

We ran a check on your company rental car.

A white sedan.

Just like the one that picked up Jenna from school.

You never said anything to me about a white sedan, Mark.

I didn't do anything!

Okay, for Jenna's sake, I think we're gonna have to go over this one more time from the top just to be safe.

I told you there's nothing to worry about.

Defense did score points when they showed that you had not read the entire psychiatric history.

I've testified dozens of times.

Jurors don't expect you to memorize a 3,000-page document.

They may expect you to spend more than 12 minutes with the defendant in order to render a credible opinion about her condition.

I can assure you my clinical assessment is perfectly valid.

I did read Ms. Del Rio's file.

She has been in and out of psychiatric hospitals for years.

She assaulted a nurse two years ago.

You know what? I'm sorry.

Are you a prosecutor or a psychiatrist?

I'm just saying, isn't it...?

No, whatever you're saying, Ms. Reagan, has zero scientific value.

I wrote the book on these disorders, literally.

You hired me to render my professional opinion.

If you wish to undermine my conclusions and your case... go with God.

I checked Wallace's EZ Pass.


He went through the Whitestone Bridge toll plaza at 1537 hours, 20 minutes after Jenna was abducted.

Great, so unless he's driving a rocket ship, he's not our guy.

I'm gonna go grab us some coffee.

Ay, ay, ay.

What's this? My file on Allie.

All my notes, personal investigator reports.

I thought it might help.

I guess, at this point, it can't hurt.

I gather the investigation isn't going well?

We're looking into every angle.

We're just coming up empty so far.

On the day Allie was taken, you told me, "The best weapon in a case like this is never lose hope."

I said that, didn't I?

You did your best for me.

And for Allie.

And now these parents need you to do the same for them.

How do you do it, Joseph?

You never lose hope.

No matter how many years pass, you keep hoping everything's gonna be okay.

How do you do it?

Because I don't have a choice.

The alternative is accepting that my life is over.

That I've lost the one thing I love most in this world.

There's noise out there the inspector general may call for hearings on the Liaison Program.

I know that.

I'd love to help you out, but I've got one hand tied behind my back.

One will have to be sufficient.

She's got to be bluffing.

Don't bet on it.

She can't dictate department policy to the PC.

That's the beauty of it.

She's not dictating policy, she's simply calling for transparency in an existing program.


One that has to be as transparent as a rock to work.

So let's counter.

Let's not.

You don't want to make your case?

To make a case you have to offer details, strategies, viability.

Not gonna.

Well, you're not gonna pretend it doesn't exist either.

That ship sailed.

I will not discuss the program, Garrett!

Not in a press release and not before a committee.

So how exactly do you expect me to handle the press?

With a polite but firm "No comment."

And what, wait for it to go away?

That's the plan?

The inspector general can investigate anything she wants.

Doesn't mean I have to start singing.

What if she subpoenas you?

I won't testify.

There's a problem.

You refuse a subpoena, she can drag you into court.

And if you still don't cooperate, into a jail cell.

I know that, too.

DANNY: Last time we were here, you told us this is where Jenna came to pick up her art.

WOMAN: That's right. Jenna spent a lot of time here.

And you said there was no one working in the room the day Jenna disappeared?

The art teacher left early.

The room was open so the kids could stop in.

Mrs. Galecki locked up.

Who's Mrs. Galecki?

One of our custodians.

That's her over there.


Ms. Galecki?

Can I help you folks?

Yeah. Police.

Uh, we're here investigating the disappearance of Jenna Wallace.

Oh, that poor girl.

BAEZ: Yes, ma'am.

Did you see her when she came in here that afternoon?


She was always down here.

She made this beautiful mural... little trees and a pond made out of shiny blue paper.

First place in the art fair.


Do you know if she was with anyone?

No. She just grabbed her project and headed out.

Those are beautiful.


I make these myself.

I sell 'em at, uh, flea markets and craft fairs.

Every little bit helps.

You keep this.

It's on the house.

Thanks for your time.

Arugula salad from the salad guy?


Caesar's from Carl's Cafe.

It's nirvana.

I got a call from Malcolm Raskin's office.

Let me guess.

He didn't nominate me as prosecutor of the year.

That's an understatement.

He said you questioned his professional judgment.

That's not true.

I questioned his work ethic, and then I questioned his professional judgment.

Raskin's one of the top guys in his field.


He made that abundantly clear.

Okay, so Malcolm has an ego.

But he's a great doctor and he's a great witness.

I've read the transcript.

His testimony can help you win the case.

Yeah, that's what I'm afraid of.

Raskin skimmed the defendant's medical history, and then he did a flyby on the psych exam.

You know as well as I do that defendants have been crying crazy since the advent of jurisprudence.

That's true.

But every once in a while, one of them is telling the truth.

I reviewed her history.

Del Rio might be that defendant.

Did you check the pork chops?

Yeah, they need a few more minutes.

Ben seems like a nice guy.

He is.

You want me to finish up that salad?

Yeah, that would be great.

How'd you do on the test?

Pretty well, I think.

Studying with Ben really helped.

We make a really great team.

Well, that's... great.

Have you known him a while?

We have a bunch of friends in common.

This is the first class we've actually had together.

I guess I was a little surprised the other night because... well, you know, you've never really mentioned him before.

I'm sure you've got a lot of friends you've never mentioned to me, right?

Well, yeah...

Oh, mashed potatoes are ready.

So, then... you're saying Ben is just a friend?

Actually, I never said "just."

So, Sean, you get to spend an overnight in Philadelphia?

Yeah. Jimmy's dad's bringing me, Terrence and Andrew to see the Knicks play the Sixers.

I hate the damn Sixers.

His company has an apartment down there.

Wow. SEAN: I know, right?

I never got to do anything like that when I was his age.

Oh, Jack...

Bitter, party of one...

(Henry chuckling)

DANNY: Actually, Sean, I don't think it's gonna work out for you.

Why not? 'Cause I haven't met Jimmy's dad.

We talked about this when we said he could go, Danny.

I know we talked about it and I gave it some more thought and I think I should take him to the Garden myself.

You can bring your friends.

But that's not fair. HENRY: Yeah.

I mean, you said he could go.



Your dad's just trying to take care of you, Sean.

That's a parent's job.

But at some point, people have the right to have their own life.

Is this because of the case you're working on?

The girl who disappeared? Sean...

No. It's 'cause I'm your father.

Can you pass the applesauce?

Protecting people can be complicated, Sean.

Sometimes people don't appreciate the way you try to keep them safe.

Until something goes wrong.


But shouldn't people have control over the way they live their lives?

JAMIE: We got a lot of freedom in this country, but there's got to be some rules, laws to protect us.

Sometimes from ourselves.

NICKY: Maybe sometimes you should let people take care of themselves.

DANNY: Yeah, well, not everyone can do that, Nicky.

There's a lot of bad people out there.

And they can do a lot of damage.

JAMIE: Still, I see what Nicky's saying.

I mean, there's a fine line between protecting people and going too far... trampling on their rights.

I'm definitely feeling trampled.


The people with the responsibility need to use it as wisely as they can.

And the people being protected need to realize that being safe can cost you something.

But it beats the hell out of the alternative.

PETERSON: I assume we're not here to take in a matinee.

FRANK: This is for your ears only.

Five months ago an Islamist terror cell--

same one responsible for the bombing in London the other day--

had plans to do some damage here.

What happened?

On a tip, we located the bomb components in a locker at Penn Station.

That tip was provided by one of my officers in the International Liaison Program.

FBI didn't have the intel, or Interpol, or the CIA.

Only we did.

Listen, I'm just trying to...

I know what you're trying to do.

But in this instance, it's a dead wrong reading of the public's right to know.

Well, you're out of bounds with that.

You're not the judge here.

No, I'm not.

And neither are you.

The judgment comes if there's something we miss and innocent people die.

I wish it were that simple.

It is. It is not.

Kelly, this can't be effectively run with backseat drivers and armchair quarterbacks.

It just can't.

That's not what I'm after.

Walks like it, talks like it.

After the incident in London, all eyes are on your ILP.

This is the Snowden era.

Hell, even the NSA let 60 Minutes in their front door.

Maybe, but they didn't let 'em in the kitchen where the sausage is made.

You've got a job to do.

You do it well and I respect that.

But I've got a job, too.

I'm charged with monitoring the NYPD and making sure they're operating in the public interest.

The public interest would not be served by killing the ILP.

And open hearings would do just that.

You can push this only so far until anyone in their right mind is gonna think, "What the hell are they hiding?"

Joseph Scott's file?


Figured maybe I could find something that we could use.

We've checked out everyone who works at that school.

They're all clean.

Yeah. We're missing something.

You're just torturing yourself

'cause you couldn't find Allie Scott and now you think it's happening again.

I'm doing my job, okay?


My son was in the hospital before.

We didn't know if he was gonna make it.

Something like that happens... there's nothing else in the world that feels that way.

It's like your heart is being ripped out of your chest.

Nothing makes sense.

That's what Joseph Scott feels like every day.

And you don't want the Wallaces to end up the same.

No, I don't.

(sighs) Well, did you find anything in the file?

The girls have a couple things in common.

They both sang in the school choir, they both... won prizes in the art fair.

Look at that.

The flower.

Just like the one the custodian gave you.


It looks the same.

That custodian, Ms. Galecki... she was the last one that saw Allie at the school seven years ago.

Custodian's office is right across from the art class where Jenna went back in before she was abducted.

So Galecki saw Jenna every day, too.

It's still kind of a leap.

What else do we got?

Let's take a ride.

Come on.

Thank you for coming, Doctor.

I hope this won't take long.

I have patients this afternoon.

I spoke with Amanda Harris.

I understand you're quite upset with me.

Let's just say I accept your apology and move on.

This is not an apology.

It's quite the contrary.

I asked two psychiatrists, who have testified for this office in the past, to review Ms. Del Rio's file and to meet with her.

Both concluded that her bipolar illness was responsible for the incident, directly contradicting your testimony.

This is outrageous. I agree.

An expert witness more interested in satisfying his ego than telling the truth is outrageous.

I don't have to take this.

I kept asking myself, "I wonder why is he doing this?"

I mean, you clearly do not need the money.

And then it occurred to me.

It's a game for you.

You like to walk in and have everyone see how smart you are.

To have the jury hang on every word.

My credentials speak for themselves.

If you don't appreciate my expertise, there are scores of your colleagues who will.

Oh, I wouldn't be so sure.

I intend to get justice in this case.

The fact that I had to go around my own expert witness to do so will be known by every prosecutor in this building.

I would not wait by the phone.


Ms. Galecki, it's Detective Reagan.

Can you open the door, please?

(lock clicking)

Hello, Detectives. Ma'am.

Is everything all right?

We need to ask you some questions.

Can we step inside, please?

Well, I'm sorry. Is it okay if we talk out here?

My husband isn't well.

With all due respect, we're dealing with a missing child, ma'am.

We'll get a warrant to search the place if we need to.

No need to do that.

Come in.

How can I help you?

Where's your husband, ma'am?

He's sleeping upstairs.

Upstairs, huh?


You working on your flowers today, ma'am?

But, Detective, where are you going?

Just looking around, ma'am.

That the basement?

Yes. What's down there?

Just storage and supplies.

My husband has a key.

Step aside, ma'am.

Thank you.


Police. Anyone down there?


(handle rattling)

GIRL: Help me, please!

Grab her.

Ma'am, I need you to stay right here.

Don't move.




Get your damn hands off her right now.

She's okay. Let her go.

Everything is okay. Shut your mouth and let her go now.

Stay right here.

I'm Detective Reagan; I'm gonna get you home safe now.

I got her!

Put your hands behind your back, please.

On the ground, you. Hey, take it easy.

Shut your mouth and get on the ground.

We never hurt her. Now!

Detective Reagan?

It's okay, sweetie. I'll get you out of here in a second.

Detective Reagan?

Not guilty by reason of insanity.

Are you sure?

Del Rio will be committed to a secure psychiatric facility where she can get the help that she needs.

It hasn't helped so far.

If you let this go to jury on the murder charge with Malcolm's testimony, you would probably win.

It depends on your definition of winning.

It's where she belongs, Amanda.

(pen scratching)

Thank you.

I'm hearing we can expect a subpoena by the end of the week.

I guess I could always leave town.

I'd buy you a fake mustache and glasses, but you've got that covered.

Remind me again why I keep you around.

Force of habit?

(door opens)

BAKER: The inspector general is here.

Let's have her.

You have to admire a woman who serves her own subpoenas.

What was that look?

I didn't give you a look.

Yeah, you did.

It's like the look the first wife gives the second wife at the kid's graduation ceremony.



I've got work to do.

(door opens)

(door closes)

You're going to refuse to testify.


Do you really believe that I want to endanger this city?


I never said that.

But there is an immutable truth about intelligence.

It's a lot less valuable if your enemies know you have it.

Kelly, I won't discuss the program publicly.


Well, maybe you won't have to.

I'd like to propose monthly briefings with the city councilman who oversees the NYPD.

That's not gonna happen.

There has to be an individual outside the department with access to this program.


That would be you.


I can't very well go back to them and just nominate myself.

It is the only offer on the table.

I can't promise anything.

Didn't ask you to.

I've got a question.

Would you really put me in jail?


But with a heavy heart.

Good night, Ms. Reagan.

Bye, Ben.

So, I'll see you tomorrow.

See you.

(door closes)


Just ask me, Mom.


Ask me if I'm having s*x with Ben.

Are you?


But we have talked about it.


Come on, Mom, you can't really be surprised.

Most of my friends have already done it.

That is not a good enough reason to have s*x for the first time.

Do you love him?

I don't know.

I mean, he's a really great guy, and I really care about him.

And I feel like I'm ready.

Go ahead, let me have it.



Well, I am sorry to disappoint you, but I am not going to yell and scream.

Do I wish that you would wait until you were sure if you were in love?


But we both know that's not up to me.

You are a beautiful, smart young woman with good judgment.

When the time is right, you will... make the right decision.

And if you need to talk about anything, I am here.

Thank you.

Now, having said that, this is still my house, which means there are boundaries.

I do not want you two in that bedroom, and let's keep the PDA down to a minimum.




Did you and Grandma ever have this conversation?


The day before I was going to marry your father, and...

I didn't have the heart to tell her that she was a little late.




Hey, Joseph, thanks for coming down.

I heard you found Jenna Wallace.

Uh, yeah, thanks to you.

I'm happy for them.

They're grateful to you for all you did.

There's someone else who wants to thank you, too, right over there.






Did they...?


She said they never touched her.
