24x15 - King of the Moon

Post by bunniefuu »

In the criminal justice system,

sexually based offenses

are considered especially heinous.

In New York City,
the dedicated detectives

who investigate these vicious felonies

are members of an elite squad

known as the Special Victims Unit.

These are their stories.

I'm sorry.
That's incorrect.

- Winnie?
- Perendinate.


I'm sorry, Winnie.
That is incorrect.

Pence, the word is perendinate.


P... p... perendinate.


P... p... perendinate.

Can I have a definition, please?

To put off until the day after tomorrow,

that, which can be done today.


N... D...



P... perendinate.

Very good, and congratulations.

You are the new spelling bee champion.

He drives a motorcycle.

He grew up in Juarez.

He alluded to some misspent youth.

Nice to meet you.

You look familiar.

Well, I've actually
read some of your work.

You wanted a half hour

so you have it.

He's prepared to recant
his confession if we do?

Well, he has dementia.

So recant or not,
he's not likely to do time.

- Self-checkout.

We loved each other.
We wanted to be together.

We wanted to leave together,

My crime is worse than m*rder.

What Mr. Humphreys means

is that he k*lled her,

and then didn't follow
through with taking his own life.

Back pedaled.


And how were you planning
on k*lling yourself?

An expeditious taste of
g*n-flavored mouthwash,

What's with the chipmunk?

Well, he seems to believe
this m*rder-su1c1de story.

Did you?

For a minute, yeah.

I mean, the guy is sharp
until he's not.

Underneath his illness,
he is a man of science.

So if we're going to try to

convince him of his own innocence,

then it wouldn't hurt
to confront him with some evidence.

We'd better find something

I can't imagine these homicide cops

spending that much time
gathering clues.

- Close your case?
- The kid confessed.

Carisi is going for
r*pe and m*rder one.

- What about the husband?
- Pence?

He is in an empty apartment,


For the rest of his life.

- Where's Velasco?
- Sent him home to take a shower.

- He tell you the truth?
- Yeah, he told me the truth.

He's ready to tell you.

And I think everyone
deserves a second chance.

I'll consider it.

I was impressed with Churlish.

Really, Fin?
Another stray?

Have her come see me tomorrow.

So Sarge catch you up?

He did.

You should know that
your drug test came back.

- And?
- It was positive.

Positive for what?

Powdered sugar.

You know, Captain, if my
loyalty was ever questioned,

- I think that...
- I feel bad for you, Velasco.


Bad how?

Because you're pounds of water,

in the shape of a man,

and you take on the shape of anything

that you're poured into.

Duarte asked you to flip a banger,

and you end up playing
just as dirty as the guy

that we're hunting.

I mean, up until now, Velasco,

you've been living a performance,

not a life.

That changes now.


What do you want me to do?

You owe a debt,

to the two people that were k*lled,

even though they were drug dealers.

It doesn't have to happen today,

and it doesn't have to happen tomorrow.

But you will find that friend,

and you will bring him to justice.

Captain, wait.
People change, you know?


being a cop isn't some sort of penance.

Putting your friend away for m*rder is.

So that's what it takes for
me and you to be all right?

That's what it takes,

for me and you to be all right.
