(sirens wailing)

(camera shutter clicking)

You see anybody running away from the vehicle when you found the body?

No. No, sir. All right.

Officer Callaghan's gonna take you down to the squad.

I'll be down there to talk to you soon.

I thought this was one of the safest big cities.

Well, it's still a big city.

Hey. What do we got?

Uh, car's registered to a Benjamin Daniels.

Put it together with the parking stickers and the stack of graded papers, he was an English professor at Hudson University.

Did you get his wallet?

Well, it's not here.

Wallet, watch... gone.

Weapon? No, no.

Canvassing the neighborhood.

MLI clocks time of death approximately 2330, so I'm guessing it was pretty deserted around here.

They get his cell phone, too?

No, that's the thing.

We have his phone?

We have both his phones.

Both his phones?

There was one in the cup holder, and a burner in the glove box.

An English teacher with two phones.

So the question becomes...

What's this English professor doing with two phones?

I'd say he's talking out of both sides of his mouth.

Mike! Yo!

Yo, Mike!

Mike! Yo!

Well, it took you long enough! Mike!

What seems to be the problem? Yo, Mike!

She's been yelling like that for the past two hours.


I don't think a Mike even lives in that building.

Well, did you tell her to stop?

Only about a dozen times.

Mike... Listen, my granddaughter is trying to sleep upstairs. Mike, yo!

Okay. Hey, miss. Yo!

I think you need to take a break.

I'm looking for Mike.

Yeah, he's clearly not looking for you.

Mike! Yo!

Miss, I need you to give it a rest.

(laughs) Says who? Says me, Officer Reagan.

Ma'am, you need to stop.

You're disturbing the whole block.

Mike, you gotta come down! Mike!

All right, ma'am, listen, I don't want to have to write you a summons, okay?

Leave me alone! Hey! Hey, all right.

All right, you're coming with us.

Ow! Hey!



Ah, she bit me! She bit you?



Listen to me.

If you ever try and bite me, that will be the last solid food you ever eat, you understand?



They're takin' me away, Mike!

(footsteps approaching)

(door opens)

ADA Reagan to see you, sir.


Let's have her.

Erin, he's all yours.

Pleasant surprise.

Well, not for long.

Want some coffee?

This meeting never happened.

Well, as far as I can tell, you're just a dutiful daughter checking in on her dear ol' dad.

Heard in the halls that you have five detectives who are having remarkable success at getting statements, tips and confessions through interrogations.

Can't argue with success.

Actually, the DA can.

He's likened these detectives to baseball players batting .700.

Not likely, unless they're juicing.

The DA is considering launching an investigation.

The NYPD has an arm for that.

So does the DA's office.

Guess who wins?

And I can't call him on it, can I?

We would both be compromised.

Because Danny's on the list.

Secret Arrangements

Original Air Date on April 11, 2014

This just doesn't feel real to me.

We have theater tickets for Tuesday.

I don't know what my life is now.

Again, we're very sorry for your loss, ma'am.

How long were you married?

Uh, w-we were coming up on 30.

We met in grad school when he was a young poet, we got tenure together here at Hudson.

It was a... it was a very, very long, loving romance.

You should see the poems he wrote me.

Your daughter?


I, uh, I have to go call her.

Mrs. Daniels, we want to respect your privacy, and we will, but we do have some important questions to ask first, if you don't mind.

Do you know what your husband was doing last night?

Uh, he... uh, told me he had to work late and not to wait up.

So you were here alone, by yourself?

Yes, I taught a class until around 8:00.

Then I came home, I... prepped for a lecture, fell asleep early.

DANNY: Do you know if your husband had any issues with gambling or drugs?

No. That's not Benjamin.

Why would you ask that?

When one person has two phones, these are things we look at.

Well, no, Benjamin only has one cell phone.

There were two phones in his car.

Excuse me.

He is a good man, a wonderful father, an excellent husband.

He is the victim here.

He is the victim here, ma'am.

And all we're trying to do is find out who's responsible.


MAN: Hello? Val?

Valerie, I'm so sorry. God, Seymour.

I just heard. President Winters contacted the trustees. Oh.

Seymour, these are Detectives Reagan and Baez.

I'm Seymour Kerwin.

I... can't believe it.

I just saw him last night.

Where was that?

We had a committee meeting at the administration building.

What time?

Meeting was at 6:00, wrapped up around 7:30.

We had a drink afterwards in his office.

I guess I left him around 9:00.

Did he have plans he talked about?

Any stops before home?

No, nothing.


I'm sorry.

I-I'm still trying to process this.

We were close.

MRS. DANIELS: Detectives, I have to go call my daughter now.

Of course.

We'll be in touch later this evening.

Yes. Uh, Seymour, would you show the detectives out, please?



BAEZ: The dump came back on Daniels' phones.

The second was a burner he only used to communicate with one other number, another burner, now out of service.

Well, everyone's entitled to a private life.

A secret life? You're on your own.

Here, let me put that...

I'll just file this.

Over here.

Anything new from the DA's office?


Did your source give you any sense of how far along the investigation has progressed?

The word "preliminary" was used.

Shift your weight.

What if Danny wasn't on this list?

I would do everything in my power to protect a detective who was under the microscope for being good at his job.

Do you think Detective Reagan steps over the line?


I think he probably steps on the line.

But more importantly, what I do know is what I don't know.

Namely, every move he makes.

And you have to wonder how the DA's office is going to define that line.

It is clearly defined as constitutional law.

I hope Danny's familiar with them.

I made sure of that.


But he takes the job personally.

Didn't you, Frank?

I did.

But Danny is quick to the temper.

He came out that way.

Colicky baby, hyperactive kid, rebellious teenager, gung ho Marine.

Great cop.

No argument here.

I don't know what to tell you.

I need a sounding board, Garrett.

I'm not looking for advice.

I'm going to give you some anyway.

All right.

It occurs to me that you should be having this off-the-record meeting with your son.


Let's get her processed and then get you checked for rabies.

Yeah. Jamie!


Is that really you?

Hey, man, what's going on?

I thought we weren't hanging out until later tonight, when I get off work.

And boy, do I think I need a picture to send the rest of the guys.

No pictures, no pictures. No pictures. All right, all right!

Mental picture's enough.

And who is this? JAMIE: Oh, my bad.

This is my partner Eddie.

Oh, so you get the prettiest partner because you're the commissioner's son?

Eddie, this is my friend Spencer Croft.

It's nice to meet you.

We lived together at Harvard.

But now he's a venture capitalist in from California to gyp some whiz kids.

Oh, impressive.

I swear it sounds fancier than it is.

I'm low on the totem pole, trust me.

They make me wash the jet before I ride in it.


You're funny.

Jamie got the smarts and the looks and I got the funny.

Not that funny.



I gotta pee!

JAMIE: All right, well, duty calls.

I guess we better go process vampire girl.

Yeah, yeah, yeah, I'm on it.

Spencer, I'll see you tonight. Sounds good.

It was nice meeting you, Officer Eddie.

It's Janko.

It sure is.

(Janko laughs)

All right, let's go, Officer Eddie.


Okay, been looking through Benjamin Daniels' computer here, subpoenaed his ISP, got a dump on his history.

Nothing unusual, except for his most trafficked site.

(baroque music plays)

BAEZ: "The Winifred O'Daire Scholarship Fund for Promising Young Women."

He teaches college. What's unusual?

Watch what happens when I click on her... lady business.

Why you clicking on her lady business?

(woman laughs flirtatiously)

BAEZ: Doubt this is a merit scholarship.

I was just about to work on cracking the login, which will take me either two days... or two minutes.

(typing rapidly)

BAEZ: These are the scholarship girls?

Where are the ugly ones?

Click on one of them.

DANNY: Rebecca... looks about 19...

She look like a physics major to you?

This is an escort service.

So Daniels was having an affair.

With a "promising young woman."

I have a feeling I know exactly what she was promising.

See if you can track down whoever it is that's running this... scholarship fund.

(computer beeps)

Whoever it is knows what they're doing.

Got the location pretty well cloaked.

You know, I may be an idiot, but don't these nonprofits have to report donations of a certain size somewhere?

Yeah, they do.

Here's a list of major donors.

Donors, huh?

You mean a list of the johns.

All right. Look who we got here.

Benjamin Daniels right next to Seymour Kerwin.

The guy we met at Daniels' apartment.

Who didn't know nothing about nothing.


The secret to keeping a secret life secret.

I think that's our guy.

Mr. Kerwin?

We need to talk to you for a second.

I-I'm sorry, I'm-I'm just, uh, going in for a meeting.

Ah, well, it's about the Winifred O'Daire Scholarship Fund.


Uh, let's have a word over here.


First of all, it's not prostitution.

Everybody's a consenting adult, and happy to be involved.

Is that a wedding band you're wearing?

My wife hasn't touched me since the Reagan Administration.

Okay, why don't you tell us about the scholarship?

How does it work?

There's this guy.

He's like a matchmaker.

He picks the right girl for you.

Then you have dinner. It's like a date.

You see if you hit it off.

If you have any common interests.

And if it's the right fit...

Right. No pun intended.

Don't make it dirty.

It's not dirty.

Come on, we know what this is all about.

It's not just about s*x.

Sometimes it's just dinner.

Some-sometimes there's nothing.

She's tired, I'm tired.

You miss that, having a girlfriend.

Someone who thinks you're smart.

Who looks up to you.

Who cares about you.

You miss that.


What's the name of the girl Benjamin was seeing?

Her name's, uh, Maggie.

I don't know her last name. I swear.

Who's behind The Winifred O'Daire Scholarship Fund?

I was introduced to the guy by Benjamin.

He runs the whole thing out of a coffee shop.

This guy have a name? I don't know his name.

But the coffee shop is called The Unlucky Penny.

It's in Greenpoint.

All right.

The heart wants what it wants.

Whatever you say.

What's that? Chicken?

You don't want to do that.

Ah, doesn't seem to bother you.

Trust me.



Take some rice.


(mumbled): Wow, that was hot.

You okay? Mm-hmm.


Detective Reagan has extraordinary success in getting results, doesn't he?

Yeah, you could say so.

Why do you think that is?

Well, he's like a good salesman.

He sees the customers, knows if they need a hard or a harder sell.

Do you think he ever goes too far to try and make a sale?

He can get pretty loud in the box, but, uh, I never saw anybody coming out looking worse than when he went in.

And he gets fewer civilian complaints filed against him than a lot of less productive guys.

Or maybe they just get lost?

No, sir.

Your neck ever get stiff from looking the other way?

No, sir.

Commissioner, um, to be honest, your son drives me nuts.


You know?

He's meticulous and sloppy all at the same time.

His paperwork is a salad.

And half the time, I don't know where he is and what he's doing.

And he puts on three times the amount of miles on the car than anybody in the squad.

But if you got any others like him at home, please send them my way.

I appreciate your candor.

Is everything okay here, boss?

I mean, anything I should know about?

Not at this time.

Could you put together his case files for pick up from my office?

Yes, sir.


Yes, sir.

Thank you.

Any ideas?

Yeah, guy with the hat in the back.

Sure looks like he's running a business. Oh, yeah, two phones.

Seems like an epidemic.

I'm guessing one of them's his hot spot.

Sure beats working out of a cubicle.

Excuse me, sir.

You mind if we step into your little office?

I'm kind of working here.

Yeah, so are we.

Detectives Reagan and Baez.

And you must be...


...Jeremiah Kade.

Why don't you tell us about the Winifred O'Daire sugar daddy service you're running.

It's a scholarship fund.

Slash prostitution ring.

I run an aboveboard nonprofit institution with a 501-C3 status.

No, you pimp college girls to old guys.

That's what you do.

All I do is match scholars with sponsors.

What they do beyond that is their own business.

Okay, whatever.

What's your end of it?

There's an administrative fee.

Ten percent.

All that is a matter of public record.

Our girls get access to an education they can't afford, and our sponsors get the hands-on experience of shaping the next generation.

Yeah, we know what the hands-on experience is all about.

Look, Mr. Kade.

We're here to investigate a murder, a murder of one of your sponsors, Benjamin Daniels.

Who was he sponsoring?

Any additional information, you'll need a warrant.

No, actually...

Mr. Kade, what do you think would happen to your little service if we were to, I don't know, release a statement to the press tying your scholarship fund to a murder, hmm?

You'll leave me and my business alone if I tell you?

We're only investigating a murder.


He was sponsoring Maggie Parker.

She's a junior at Hudson.

Where Daniels worked.

Let's go find her.

And... you'll be hearing from my buddy at the I.R.S.

But he said you'd leave me alone.

He did. I didn't.

Oh, somebody's sleepy.

Ah, I stayed up way too late last night catching up with Spencer.

I haven't seen him in a long time.

Hmm, he seems cool.

He sure thinks so.

He asked me to give him your digits.

Seriously? Yeah.

For real?

This is where you fish for compliments?

Seriously though, he's only ever seen me in my uniform.

I look like a 12-year-old boy dressing up like a cop for Halloween.

Whatever. It worked.

So, did you give him my number?

What are we, back in middle school?

I'm gonna start passing notes for you guys?

Just my number, Reagan.

You don't need to say yes because he's my friend.

I'm not.

Look, Spencer's a good friend, but when it comes to women, he's a gentleman.

Right up until he finds another girl to be gentle with.

I can handle myself.

He wants to take you out Sunday night if you're free.

Hmm, I have plans with my old friend from high school.

I'll tell him it's a no. Wait!

Wait, wait, wait. This is perfect!

We could make it a double date.

You would totally love Hayley.

No, I don't know. Trust me, trust me!

She is awesome.

I'm gonna text her right now.

Will you let Spencer know?

Sure, yeah.

Maggie Parker?

Detectives Reagan and Baez.

What's going on?

Professor Benjamin Daniels was a friend of yours, right?


Mind if we come talk inside?

Wow, pretty nice place you got here.

Thank you.

BAEZ: Better than living in a dorm.

And so close to campus.

Can't be too cheap though.

I didn't know scholarships covered private housing.

You know about the Winifred O'Daire Scholarship?

Yeah, we do.

There's no law against friends with benefits, is there?

There is against prostitution.

Yeah, this wasn't that.

How so?

He cared about what I had to say.

He was romantic.

He took me on dates. How many guys have ever written you a love poem?

Yeah, I'm sure the money didn't hurt, either, though, did it?

That was separate. Right.

When was the last time you saw Mr. Daniels?

Uh, we were together the night before last.

The night he was murdered.

Just tell us what happened that night.

He came over around 9:30.

I was cramming for a mid-term, he brought me sushi.

And left around 11:00

when my friend came by to study.

We're gonna need the name and number of your friend for starters.


We're gonna need all the text messages and e-mails between you and Mr. Daniels as well.

Those are private.

Not anymore they're not.

It's a murder investigation.

You don't want to turn them over, we'll have a subpoena down here in a few minutes.

I had nothing to do with it.

I didn't say you did.

My parents, they can't know.

Look, I'll give you all the correspondence, whatever you need.

Just, please...

You're obviously keeping something from us.

What do you mean?

You're not cooperating because you don't want us to tell your parents?

This isn't some history exam where you get a "C" and you don't want Mommy and Daddy to find out. Somebody's dead.

Somebody you supposedly cared about.

And you're standing in the way of our investigation because you don't want us to tell your parents?

(crying): All right, all right.

I broke up with my boyfriend, and he thought it was because of Ben.

Okay, this ex-boyfriend, what's his name?


Milo Finley.

He showed up last week out of nowhere.

Ben and I were in the middle of... things.

He went crazy.

I had to call security.

He called me a whore.

And he threatened Benjamin.

He must have gone through with it.


Hey. Hey. I ran Milo Finley.

Yeah? What'd you come up with?

23, college dropout. Let's see.

Jumped a turnstile, drunk and disorderly, public urination. You know, basic frat boy crap.

No history of violence?

No, but the dump on Maggie's real phone said that Milo called her 108 times after she broke up with him.

You're kidding me.

COSGROVE: Detective Reagan.

I'll catch up.

You got a visitor.

Oh, look who made bail.

I got a cousin who loves me.

Good. I hope you love him back.

What's up? I need to talk to you.

All right, come on over to my desk.

Someplace private.

Okay, we can talk over here. Come on.

What's going on?

Look, Detective, you were straight with me, so I'm gonna give you a heads up.

Okay. Two days ago I got pulled out of my cell at Rikers by two detectives, want to interview me about you.

What'd they want to know?

Mostly they wanted to know how you got a statement out of me, if you hit me or violated my rights, or whatever.

So what'd you tell 'em?

I told 'em you asked questions and I didn't confess.

And I gave you info on a guy in exchange for a break.

These guys say what unit they were with?

No. They have a pin on their lapel?

Nah, they were just suits with badges and haircuts.

Okay, all right. Thanks, for your help, Bobby.

Hey, don't forget I did this.

I don't forget anything.

Son of a bitch.


Everything okay?

No. Who's investigating me and why?

I don't know what you're talking about.

You're lying to me. What?

You got a tell, Sarge; you run your fingers down your tie whenever you fib to your wife and say you're working overtime, but you're really going out for beers.

You do it all the time. You just did it now.

I don't know what you're talking about.

Sarge, who's looking at me?!

(door opens)

(door closes)


Where's Grandpa?

He's out.


Someone's looking into me, Dad.

Who is it?

I really can't talk about that now.

So you do know about it.

Yes, I do.

You didn't think to come to me...

...tell me about it?

To what end?

To what end? To any end. I'm your son.

So what are you asking for?


I run 35,000 cops.

I don't have a VIP list, nobody gets comped.

Okay, so you're gonna fall back on that?

No, I'm gonna stand on it.

With you, with anybody.

Why are you looking into me, Dad?

Can you at least just tell me that much?

Who said it's me looking into you?

Well, let's see. It's gotta be someone with enough juice to pull one my perps out and ask him if I violated his rights.

It's also gotta be someone with enough juice to have my case files sent to One PP for review.

That tells me that it's one person-- you.

Shoddy work, Detective.

If you or one of your chiefs thinks I'm not doing the job the right way, then just come to me, the same way you would Jamie or the same way you would have Joe.

You do have the right to remain silent.

You're making jokes?

No, not in the least. And shut the hell up!

Dad, all I'm asking you is if someone's got a beef with me, point 'em out so I can defend myself!

It doesn't work that way!

Works that way where I'm from.

Look, I'm a grunt. Always was, always will be, and nobody's mistaking me for the next Reagan being groomed for an office upstairs. I get it.

You're talking crap.

I'm not talking crap, Dad, I'm talking the truth.

That's all you can come back with, I'm talking crap?

If that's all you think of yourself, you're the only one.

Oh, please, spare me the lesson for once, would ya?

Answer me this, Danny.

Do you really think I would side against you, ever?

How sad for you.

Now get out of my house.

Come back when you're ready to have a conversation for real.

What do you got against salt?

Too many cooks.

Need some help?

No, I think I've got it.

Linda's bringing her garlic bread.


You look tired, Dad.

I didn't sleep well last night.

I got a surprise visit from your brother.

He knows.

He thinks he knows.

He thinks it's coming from you.

So I heard.

Uh! This should be a fun dinner.

So, whose turn is it to say grace? Danny?

Not feeling too thankful today, Gramps.

Somebody else?

Not here.

Well, I'm just saying.

Wow, am I gonna have to wear a coat sitting between you two?

What's that supposed to mean?

Chilly. Leave it alone, Linda.

Just say grace.

Bless us, O Lord, and these Thy gifts we are about to receive through Christ Our Lord. Amen.

ALL: Amen.

If I said it that fast, I would get in trouble.

Your father doesn't worry about things like that, Jack.

Hey, let's keep it civil.


Linda, could you pass the garlic bread, please?


Thank you.

Jamie, you look nice today.

What, you got a date or something later?

My friend Spencer's in town buying a company.

We're gonna go out tonight.

Spencer Croft?


I always knew he would go places.

He did. California.

He was quite the charmer.

Yeah, get in line.

Isn't he that kid that went on the tuna trip with us one time?

Caught a 120-pounder?

That's a lot of tuna.

Need a lot of mayo.


Nice one, Sean.

(laughter continues)

Kid made a funny.

I laughed. Okay.

Let's just get through the meal, okay?



I said not here.

(fork clatters, sighs)

(phone rings)

Uncle Danny, no phones at the dinner table.

Gotta go.

My partner found our suspect.

Really? Can't it wait?

Let him go, Linda. He's not here anyway.

Corner of the bar.

DANNY: Milo Finley?

I'm not driving, bro.

It's not "bro,"

it's "detective." Her, too.

We need to talk to you about Benjamin Daniels.


Your old girlfriend's new old boyfriend.


Bitch can do what she wants.

Mr. Daniels was murdered. Do you know anything about that?


Thank you.

You just made my day.

Where were you Wednesday night?

I was right here on my stool. Right, Keira?

Totally found him asleep on the toilet around 2:00 a.m.

Posted it. Got a lot of likes.

Look, I got my heart broke.

You never been there?

No, but you're breaking mine now.

Oh, that aim, Reagan.

It was close.

You're, like, an embarrassment to the entire PD.

Oh, really? 'Cause we both know who the better shot is.

Oh, you wish.

All talk. All talk, this girl.


Beat that, Jame-o.

Okay, you know what? If I get this last shot, Jame-o is buying drinks for the rest of the night.

All right, let's see it.


Yes! Yes!

Like, so easy!

That's how you do it. You see that?

Um, so, my friend, I would like a margarita on the rocks with salt, please.

Sure ya wanna mix like that, ya lush?

Oh, I can handle my liquor, thank you very much.

And get one for Hayley, too.

Eddie, do you want to come with me to the girls' room?

I need you a sec.

Why do girls always need to pee in pairs.

We do not, okay?

Okay, try not to miss us too much.

Okay, we'll try.

(Eddie chuckles)

You realize you're kidding yourself, right?

What do you mean?

You said you were not into Eddie.

She's like my sister.

Well, I think you want to kiss your sister.

And I don't mean Erin.

I don't. Come on. Man, I...

I can't even go there. Well, I'm not going there either, 'cause if I went for it, it'd be in strict violation of bro code.

Ah, so, what, you want to leave?

Of course not. I plan to kill you in beer pong at least three more times before the night is through.

I'm gonna get those drinks.

All right.

MAN: I was on the desk from 8:00 that night.

DANNY: And you only saw Mrs. Daniels once?

That's it? You sure?

Yeah. Like I said, Mrs. Daniels comes home like, 9:00, and I didn't see her after that.

All right. This door here, it's the only other exit in the building?

Yeah. It's always armed?

Far as I know. All right.

Can we open it up?

You're the police, man.

(alarm wails)

See? It works. Yeah.

Can you turn it off?

Can anybody come down here and open this door?

(wailing stops) Anybody who knew where the key was at.

The key's hanging right there.

It protects from people coming from the outside, not from in.

Oh. So it's possible, then, that somebody could come downstairs and maybe drop off their laundry, grab the key, disarm the door, go out for a while, come back, rearm the door, grab their laundry, go upstairs like nothing ever happened?

I guess. Don't know why they'd want to.

Huh. Thank you.

Guess we should take a closer look at Mrs. Daniels.

I guess you're right.

(Janko laughs)

JAMIE: You are so wrong about the lyrics.

No, I've heard that song a bajillion times.

My mom loves that song.

It's "crystal ball."

I know what I'm talking about.

Yeah, well, my mom loved it, too.

Her and my dad used to put it on and get tipsy.

And dance.

And my sister and I would sneak down and watch.

And the lyric's...

♪ Or anyone at all.

That's... that makes sense. What?


No, it doesn't.

It's "You don't need a fortune-teller

"with a crystal ball to tell us in the autumn that the leaves are gonna fall."

♪ Or if the evening sun

♪ Will slip into the sea

♪ It's inevitable ♪
♪ Like you...


♪ And... (grunts)

♪ Me.

Oh, th-this is me.

Yeah, sure is.

You should get inside, it's late.

Oh, okay.


We've got a day tour tomorrow.


Bright and early.

Okay, I'll see you later.


Where are we with the Daniels murder?

Well, husband was having an affair with a college girl, so we like the wife, but...

But there's certainly no probable cause to make the arrest.

What do you got so far?

Well, finances indicate the husband was spending down their retirement to put the girl through school.

And then there's these gooey love poems that he was sending to the college girl.

"In the gallery between wakefulness and slumber, "hangs a radiant canvas

"rendered, "surely by a haloed master.

Mmm. "This is your forever face.

"And I am the sole docent

"in this epha... mm... eph...

"Ephemeral." "...ephemeral museum." Wow.

You had me feeling all warm and fuzzy there for a sec, Sarge.

Don't get carried away, hmm.

Let me see one of these.

All I have is lingerie receipts.

"On the N train

"coursing through the veins of Ersatz Athens

"pumped by a hungry heart, "we soon feast on Moussaka and Tsatsiki

"And I toast you Artemis with Retsina.

A trip to Olympus for the price of a subway token."

Is this a poem about them taking the N train to Astoria for Greek food?

Maybe it is.

Read that part again?

The-the end, about Olympus.

"A trip to Olympus for the price of a subway token."

Subway token.

When's the last time anybody used a subway token?

MetroCard came out in the early '90s, I think.


Maggie wasn't even born yet. Exactly.

I think this guy was recycling.


No, the, the poems.

Imagine you're the wife and you find out he's having an affair with a 20-year-old college girl.

That's bad enough.

But now add in the fact that he's sending her poems that he wrote for you when you were falling in love with him?!

(groans) That would really send me over the edge.



You look awful.

Hopefully this hangover egg and cheese sammy will do the trick.

I'm not sure how you look so together after last night.

I have the metabolism of a D-1 football-playing frat boy.

Lucky you.

Hopefully the radio'll be quiet today.

Yeah, fingers crossed.

What is taking so long with our order?

So, about last night...

I shouldn't have done that.

I have a knack for going after the wrong kind of guys.

Either they're off-limits or just plain off.

When you work together long enough, either you hate each other or...

Or make out on the sidewalk?

It was a crazy night. Hey.

It was gonna happen sooner or later.

At least now it's out of our systems.

We'll laugh about this for a long time.

How is the investigation going?

It's going well, uh, we may be onto something, Mrs. Daniels, but we could really use your help.

Please, sit down.

Mrs. Daniels, we have reason to believe that one of your husband's students may have been involved in this murder.

But his students loved him.

Yeah, well, that may actually have been the problem.

I'm sorry?

Do you recognize this girl?

Well, we work in different departments, so there's not a lot of student crossovers.

BAEZ: That's not what I asked you.

Do you recognize this girl, yes or no?


(quiet laugh)

Mrs. Daniels, I understand this is a difficult time for you.

But we strongly suspect that your husband was having an affair with this women, his student.

Uh, look, I-I... I've already told you.

That is not in his character.

Well, people can surprise you sometimes.

In fact, we were thinking maybe you should take a look at some of these poems he wrote for her.

Excuse me, what are you doing?

Here, why don't you start with this one?

Or this one.

How about that?

That one, any of these.

Tell you what, Mrs. Daniels.

How about I just read one for you?

Please, just stop this!

"Your cheek the apple shames, "And the brightest star turns

"ignominious shooter, mortified by the wink of your eye."

He wrote this for you, didn't he?

(quietly): What?

Yeah, he did.

He wrote them for you, and then he made a mockery of your marriage by stealing them from you and giving them to her, this woman.

His new girlfriend.

His new lover.

Your replacement!

I could never let that happen!



Hi, Dad.

I forgot to ask if it was dinner, but I was hungry so I brought some.


So, I wanted to tell you that I talked to Danny, and I told him that the investigation was preliminary and that it was initiated by the DA's office.



I never heard from him.

Did you call him?

(Danny clears throat)

I thought we should all have a drink.

Scotch or scotch?

Why didn't you just say?


Say that it was the DA's office.

Because I do not have license to interfere in their business.

You should've said something.

I should have, huh? Yeah.

Well, I disagree.

I don't take orders from you.


What's that?

Something I wrote.

Wh-What is it?

Just take a look.

"Addendum to the interrogation guidelines for the detective bureau."

It is a draft that recommends techniques developed and implemented by some of my most productive detectives.

Is that right?

Also flags some techniques that will no longer be acceptable.


Let me guess which section I'm in.

Actually, you'll find yourself in both sections.

Here you go, Dad.

Pizza will be warm in a minute.


What, are we gonna watch TV?


Something special coming on?

Yeah, I finally had all our home movies transferred to digital.

Welcome to the world premiere.



What year?

Judging from my bathing suit, I'd say early '80s.

♪ What a wonderful world And judging from Mom's bathing suit, I'd say early '50s.


She's my mother.

I'm allowed.

♪ I see skies of blue
♪ And clouds of white
♪ The bright blessed day
♪ And the dark sacred night
♪ And I think to myself
♪ What a wonderful world...
