- 1. Oh, God. Oh.
- 2. How are you doing, Nick?
- 3. Morning, detective.
- 4. You got to get back, folks.
- 5. Howdy.
- 6. Up there.
- 7. How's it going, guys?
- 8. Who was this fuckin' guy?
- 9. Rock and roll, Gus. Johnny Boz.
- 10. - I never heard of him.
- Before your time, cowboy.
- 11. - Hey, Ronnie. Where are they hiding?
- Upstairs, to the right.
- 12. Mid-sixties. He had five or six hits.
He's got a club down in the Fillmore now.
- 13. Not now he don't.
- 14. Do we have a time of death.
- 15. - You guys know Captain Talcott?
- 16. - What's the Chief's office doin' here.
- 17. What's it say, doc?
- 18. Ninety-two degrees.
It's about six hours.
- 19. Put's time of death around,
uh, 2 am plus or minus.
- 20. Can somebody close the drapes over there?
- 21. - Geez, what a mess.
- Maid came in about an hour ago.
- 22. Found the body. She's not a live-in.
- 23. Maybe the maid did it.
- 24. She's 54 years old
and weighs 240 pounds.
- 25. No bruises on the body.
- 26. - It ain't the maid.
- Never know.
- 27. Sorry.
- 28. He left the club
with his girlfriend about midnight.
- 29. That's the last time anybody saw him.
- 30. - What was it?
- Ice pick.
- 31. Left it on the coffee table
in the living room.
- 32. There's come stains
all over the sheets.
- 33. Very impressive.
- 34. He got off before he got offed.
- 35. Gentlemen, this is sensitive.
- 36. Mr. Boz was a major contributor
to the mayor's campaign.
- 37. He was Chairman of the Board
of the Palace of Fine Arts—
- 38. I thought you said
he was a rock and roll star.
- 39. He was a retired rock and roll star.
- 40. A civic-minded,
very respectable rock and roll star.
- 41. What's that over there?
- 42. It looks like some civic-minded,
very respectable cocaine.
- 43. Listen to me, Curran.
I'm gonna get a lot of heat on this.
- 44. I don't want any mistakes.
- 45. What's Boz's girlfriend's name?
- 46. Catherine Tramell, 162 Divisadero.
- 47. Always a pleasure, Captain.
- 48. He's up bright and early.
- 49. He doesn't usually punch in
till after his 18 holes.
- 50. Johnny and the mayor
must have been very tight.
- 51. - Hey.
- 52. Keep your three o'clock.
- 53. Do you want me to work the case, Phil—
- 54. I said keep it.
- 55. I'll keep it.
- 56. Morning. I'm Detective Curran,
this is Detective Moran.
- 57. San Francisco Police Department.
- 58. We'd like to speak to
a Ms. Catherine Tramell, please.
- 59. Come in.
- 60. Sit, please. Just a moment.
- 61. Ain't that cute?
They got his and hers Picasso's.
- 62. Gus, I didn't even know
you knew who Picasso was.
- 63. Sure I do. It says right here.
- 64. Hers is bigger.
- 65. Sorry to bother you.
- 66. Just got a couple of questions to ask.
- 67. Are you vice?
No, we're homicide.
- 68. What do you want?
- 69. When was the last time you saw John Boz?
- 70. Is he dead?
- 71. Why do you think he's dead?
- 72. Well, you wouldn't be here
otherwise, would you?
- 73. Were you with him last night?
- 74. You're looking for Catherine, not me.
- 75. Who are you?
- 76. I'm Roxy.
- 77. I'm her friend.
- 78. Well, Roxy, do you know
where your friend is?
- 79. She's out at the beach house at Stinson.
- 80. Thanks.
- 81. You're wasting your time.
- 82. Catherine didn't kill him.
- 83. Gus...
- 84. Ms. Tramell?
- 85. Good afternoon. I'm Detective Curran,
this is Detective Moran.
- 86. We're with the San Francisco Police—
I know who you are.
- 87. So how did he die?
- 88. He was murdered.
- 89. Obviously.
- 90. - How was he murdered?
- With an ice pick.
- 91. How long were you dating him?
- 92. I wasn't dating him. I was fucking him.
- 93. What are you? A pro?
- 94. No. I'm an amateur.
- 95. How long were you having sex with him?
- 96. About a year and a half.
- 97. - Were you with him last night?
- 98. Did you leave the club with him?
- 99. - Yes.
- Did you go home with him?
- 100. No. We had a drink at the club.
We left together.
- 101. He went home and I came out here.
- 102. Was there anyone with you last night?
- 103. No. I wasn't in the mood last night.
- 104. Let me ask you something, Ms. Tramell?
- 105. Are you sorry he's dead?
- 106. Yeah. I liked fucking him.
- 107. Look, I don't really feel
like talking anymore.
- 108. Listen, lady, we can do this downtown
if you want.
- 109. So read me my rights and arrest me,
and then I'll go downtown.
- 110. Otherwise, get the fuck out of here.
- 111. Please?
- 112. Nice girl.
- 113. I'm sorry, Beth. I got hung up in Stinson.
- 114. How are you, Nick?
- 115. I'm fine.
- 116. Oh, come on, Beth. You know I'm fine.
- 117. How long we gotta keep doing this?
- 118. As long as Internal Affairs wants you to,
I suppose. Have a seat.
- 119. It's bullshit, okay. You know it is.
- 120. I know it is, but sit down anyway
so we can get it over with, okay?
- 121. So, how are things?
- 122. Things are fine. I told you, all right.
Things are fine.
- 123. How is your personal life?
- 124. My sex life is fine.
- 125. My sex life is actually pretty shitty
since I stopped seeing you.
- 126. Started developing calluses.
- 127. Sorry.
- 128. How's the booze?
- 129. Haven't had a drink in three months.
- 130. - What about the coke?
- 131. No?
- 132. No. No, I'm working my ass off,
I'm off the sauce.
- 133. I even stopped smoking.
- 134. How's not smoking?
- 135. It sucks.
- 136. Now, will you tell IA I'm just your
average healthy, totally fucked up cop,
- 137. and let me outta here?
- 138. Please?
- 139. Yes.
- 140. Thank you.
- 141. I still miss you, Nick.
- 142. - Hey, how you doing, Nick?
- 143. Talcott's in there. They're waiting.
How'd it go?
- 144. She misses me.
- 145. Boy, when that girl mates, it's for life.
- 146. All right. Let's start. Harrigan.
- 147. Well, we got
31 stab wounds, neck and the chest.
- 148. No usable prints, no forcible entry,
- 149. No prints on the ice pick either.
You can pick it up at any K-mart.
- 150. The scarf was Hermes.
- 151. They sell about 20,000 a year, worldwide.
- 152. The powder was cocaine,
high- quality, high-content.
- 153. He inhaled it; there were
minute quantities on his lips and penis.
- 154. Mr. Boz leaves five million dollars,
no direct survivors,
- 155. no criminal record.
- 156. Liked his drugs, he liked his girls,
- 157. - he liked his rock and roll.
- He liked the mayor, too, right?
- 158. What about his girlfriend?
- 159. Is she relevant here?
Is she a suspect?
- 160. - She's a suspect.
- On what basis?
- 161. Catherine Tramell. Age 30.
No priors, no convictions.
- 162. Magnum cum laude at Berkeley, 1983.
- 163. Double major. Literature and Psychology.
- 164. Daughter, sole survivor,
Marvin and Elaine Tramell,
- 165. killed in a boating accident, 1978,
Catherine Tramell sole heir.
- 166. Estimated assets $110 million.
- 167. You're shitting me.
- 168. Formerly engaged
to Manual Vasquez, deceased—
- 169. Whoa, whoa, whoa. Manny Vasquez?
- 170. Manny Vasquez,
former middleweight contender,
- 171. killed in the ring Atlantic City, 1984.
- 172. I love it.
She's got a hundred million bucks.
- 173. She fucks fighters
and rock and roll stars.
- 174. And she's got a degree
in screwing with peoples' heads.
- 175. You forgot about her degree in literature.
She's a writer.
- 176. She published a novel last year
under a pen name.
- 177. Wanna know what it's about?
- 178. It's about a retired rock and roll star
who gets murdered by his girlfriend.
- 179. Page 67, cowboy.
- 180. You know how she does the boyfriend?
- 181. With an icepick...
- 182. in bed...
- 183. his hands tied with a white silk scarf.
- 184. Dr. Garner?
- 185. I've asked Dr. Lamott to consult with us.
This isn't really my turf.
- 186. Dr. Lamott teaches the pathology
of psychopathic behavior at Stanford
- 187. and is also a member
- 188. of the Justice Department's
Psychological Profile team.
- 189. Dr. Lamott?
- 190. I see two possibilities.
- 191. One. The person who wrote this book
is your murderer
- 192. and acted out the killing described
in ritualistic, literal detail.
- 193. Two. Someone who wants to harm the writer
- 194. read the book and enacted the killing
described to incriminate her.
- 195. What if the writer did it?
Then what are we dealing with?
- 196. You're dealing with a devious,
- 197. You see, this book had to have
been written at least six months,
- 198. maybe even years, before it was published.
- 199. Which means that the writer
had to have at least planned the crime,
- 200. in the subconscious, back then.
- 201. Now, the fact that she carried it out
- 202. indicates psychopathic obsessive behavior
in terms not only of the killing itself,
- 203. but also in terms of the applied
advance defense mechanism.
- 204. You know,
sometimes I can't tell shit from shinola,
- 205. Doc.
- 206. What was all that you just said?
- 207. - She intended the book to be her alibi.
- 208. She's gonna say, "Do you think
I'd be dumb enough to kill anyone
- 209. in the exact way I described in my book?
- 210. I wouldn't do that,
because then I know I'd be the suspect."
- 211. So what if it's not the writer?
What if it's, uh...
- 212. someone who read the book?
- 213. You're dealing then
with someone so obsessed
- 214. that he, or she, is willing to kill
an irrelevant and innocent victim
- 215. in order to place the blame
on the person who wrote that book.
- 216. I'm talking about a deep-seeded,
- 217. and an utter lack of respect
for human life.
- 218. So we got a once-in-a-lifetime,
- 219. loony-tune either way you cut it.
That's what you're saying, right, Doc?
- 220. You're dealing with someone
- 221. and very ill.
- 222. Come on, you know
there's no case here.
- 223. You've got no physical evidence.
- 224. She hasn't got an alibi.
- 225. Okay, she hasn't got an alibi,
she hasn't got a motive either.
- 226. Believe me. Her defense would just beat us
to death with this copycat thing.
- 227. Anybody who read the book
could have done it.
- 228. So what do you wanna do now? Nothing?
- 229. We call her in for questioning.
- 230. She's got enough money to burn
this whole department down.
- 231. She was the last person
seen with the guy, Captain Talcott.
- 232. I'll take the responsibility.
- 233. It's yours.
- 234. It won't do any good. She'll just waltz in
with some superstar lawyer
- 235. who'll get us all canned
for wasting the taxpayer's money.
- 236. - That's exactly what she'll do.
- No she won't.
- 237. I don't think she'll hide behind anybody.
- 238. I don't think she's gonna hide at all.
- 239. Then she's as crazy as you are, Curran.
- 240. You know what they say:
It takes one to know one.
- 241. Ms. Tramell, we like you to come downtown
to answer a few questions for us.
- 242. Are you arresting me?
- 243. If that's the way you want to play it.
- 244. Could I change
into something more appropriate?
- 245. It'll only take a minute. Come on in.
- 246. Make yourselves comfortable.
I'll be right back.
- 247. Hey, Gus.
- 248. So how long
is this gonna take?
- 249. I don't know.
- 250. Do you always keep old newspapers around?
- 251. Only when they make interesting reading.
- 252. - I'm ready.
- You have the right to an attorney.
- 253. Why would I need an attorney?
- 254. Do you have a cigarette?
- 255. I don't smoke.
- 256. Yes, you do.
- 257. - I quit.
- 258. Thought you didn't have any cigarettes.
- 259. Oh, I found some in my pocket.
Would you like one?
- 260. I told you, I quit.
- 261. It won't last.
- 262. You working on another book?
- 263. Yes I am.
- 264. It must really be something,
making stuff up all the time.
- 265. Yeah, it teaches you to lie.
- 266. How's that?
- 267. You make stuff up,
it has to be believable.
- 268. It's called suspension of disbelief.
- 269. I like that. "Suspension of disbelief."
- 270. What's your new book about?
- 271. A detective. He falls for the wrong woman.
- 272. What happens?
- 273. She kills him.
- 274. I'm John Correli, Ms. Tramell.
Assistant district attorney.
- 275. I have to inform you
this session's beings taped.
- 276. This is Captain Talcott.
- 277. - My pleasure.
- And Lieutenant Walker.
- 278. - Hi.
- Can we get you anything? A cup of coffee?
- 279. No thank you.
- 280. Are your attorneys gonna join us?
- 281. Ms. Tramell has waived her rights
to an attorney.
- 282. Did I miss something?
- 283. I told them that you wouldn't want
an attorney present.
- 284. - Oh.
- Why have you waived your right
- 285. to an attorney, Ms. Tramell?
- 286. Why did you think I wouldn't want one?
- 287. I told them you wouldn't want to hide.
- 288. I have nothing to hide.
- 289. There is, uh, no smoking
in this building, Ms. Tramell.
- 290. What are you going to do?
Charge me with smoking?
- 291. Would you tell us the nature
of your relationship with Mr. Boz?
- 292. I had sex with him for about
a year and a half.
- 293. I liked having sex with him.
- 294. He wasn't afraid of experimenting.
- 295. I like men like that.
- 296. Men who give me pleasure.
- 297. He gave me a lot of pleasure.
- 298. You ever, uh...
- 299. engage in any sado-masochistic activity?
- 300. Exactly what did you have in mind,
- 301. - Did you ever tie him up?
- 302. You never tied him up.
- 303. No.
- 304. Johnny liked to use his hands too much.
- 305. I like hands and fingers.
- 306. You describe a, uh,
white silk scarf in your book.
- 307. I've always had a fondness
for white silk scarves.
- 308. They're good for all occasions.
- 309. But you said you liked men
to use their hands.
- 310. - Didn't you?
- 311. I said I liked Johnny to use his hands
- 312. I don't make any rules, Nick.
I go with the flow.
- 313. Did you kill Mr. Boz, Ms. Tramell?
- 314. I'd have to be pretty stupid
to write a book about a killing
- 315. and then kill somebody the way
I described it in my book.
- 316. I'd be announcing myself as the killer.
- 317. I'm not stupid.
- 318. We know you're not stupid, Ms. Tramell.
- 319. Maybe that's what you're counting on
to get you off the hook.
- 320. Writing the book gives you an alibi.
- 321. Yes it does, doesn't it?
- 322. The answer is no. I didn't kill him.
- 323. Do you use drugs, Ms. Tramell?
- 324. - Sometimes.
- Did you ever do drugs with Mr. Boz?
- 325. - Sure.
- What kind of drugs?
- 326. Cocaine.
- 327. Have you ever fucked on cocaine, Nick?
- 328. It's nice.
- 329. You like playing games, don't you?
- 330. I have a degree in psychology.
It goes with the turf. Games are fun.
- 331. How about boxing? That's a game.
Was that fun too?
- 332. I don't think that's relevant
to this inquiry.
- 333. Boxing was fun till Manny died.
- 334. How did you feel when he died?
- 335. I loved him. It hurt.
- 336. How did you feel when I told you
Johnny Boz had died?
- 337. I felt like someone who read my book,
and was playing a game.
- 338. - But it didn't hurt?
- 339. Because you didn't love him...
- 340. even though you were fucking him.
- 341. You still get the pleasure.
- 342. Didn't you ever fuck anybody else
when you were married, Nick?
- 343. How did you know he was married?
- 344. Maybe I was just guessing.
- 345. What difference does it make?
- 346. Would you like a cigarette, Nick?
- 347. - You two know each other?
- 348. No.
- 349. How did you meet Mr. Boz?
- 350. I wanted to write a book about the murder
of a retired rock and roll star.
- 351. I went down to his club, I picked him up.
Then I had sex with him.
- 352. You didn't feel anything for him.
You just had sex with him for your book.
- 353. In the beginning.
Then I got to like what he did for me.
- 354. That's pretty cold, ain't it, lady?
- 355. I'm a writer, I use people
for what I write.
- 356. Let the world beware.
- 357. You want me to take a lie detector test?
- 358. Wait here, please.
- 359. No blips, no blood pressure variations,
no pulse variance.
- 360. Either she's telling the truth
or I've never seen anyone like her.
- 361. I guess that settles it.
- 362. - She's lying.
- Forget it. You can fool me.
- 363. - You cannot fool the machine.
- Trust me. It can be done.
- 364. And what makes you such an expert?
- 365. Cause I know people that have done it.
- 366. Thank you.
- 367. Yes. Thanks for coming in, Ms. Tramell.
Sorry to inconvenience you.
- 368. Could someone give me a ride home?
- 369. Sure.
- 370. Thank you.
- 371. Wanna get a drink?
- 372. Rough day?
- 373. Not really.
- 374. Beating that machine can't be easy.
- 375. If I was guilty,
and I wanted to beat that machine,
- 376. it wouldn't be hard.
- 377. Wouldn't be hard at all.
- 378. You took a lie detector test after you
shot those two people, didn't you?
- 379. I passed.
- 380. You see? We're both innocent, Nick.
- 381. You seem to know an awful lot about me.
- 382. You know an awful lot about me.
- 383. I don't know anything
that's not police business.
- 384. You know I don't wear any underwear.
- 385. Don't you, Nick?
- 386. Thanks for the ride.
- 387. Get you another glass of wine?
- 388. - Hi, Nick.
- 389. So what is all this "Nick" stuff?
- 390. Nick, do you wanna cigarette?
Nick, can I have a ride?
- 391. She didn't ask me to give her a ride.
She asked anybody.
- 392. - And you volunteered.
- Hey, Nick. Evian?
- 393. Uh, no Chuck. You get me a double
Black Jack on the rocks, please.
- 394. What you doing, hos?
- 395. I haven't had a drink in three months.
- 396. That all right with you, cowboy?
- 397. - She doesn't know me, okay.
- Here you go, Nick.
- 398. I never seen her
before, uh, Gus and I talked to her.
- 399. Thanks, Chuck.
- 400. - You're sure?
- Yes, I'm sure.
- 401. Cheers.
- 402. Now what?
- 403. What now what? Now nothing.
She passed the polygraph. That's it.
- 404. She knew how to beat it.
That's why she asked to take it.
- 405. Now how in the fuck do you know?
What is it with you and this broad anyway?
- 406. Oh, come on, Phil.
Do not let this one slide.
- 407. What about her parents?
What about what else she published?
- 408. Maybe all her books
got a funny way of coming true.
- 409. Her parents died in an accident. I don't
give a shit what else she published.
- 410. What are you all of a sudden?
A book critic?
- 411. How did they die? Huh?
Was there an investigation?
- 412. Now you're saying she killed her parents?
Did she kill Manny Vasquez, too?
- 413. Not unless she climbed into the ring
and turned into one mean son of a bitch.
- 414. Maybe she did, Gus. Maybe she grew herself
an Afro, developed a hell of a left hook,
- 415. and put shoe polish all over her face.
- 416. - Let's polygraph her again and ask her.
- Fuck you, Phil.
- 417. Fuck you, too Nick.
- 418. Don't worry, Phil.
Nick will fuck himself.
- 419. Yeah, right.
You guys are very funny.
- 420. Hey, Chucky,
get me another double, will you?
- 421. Coming right up.
- 422. Are you back on the Black Jack, Shooter?
- 423. - We're discussing a case here, Marty.
- I know that. I have no doubts.
- 424. Here you go, Nick.
- 425. Oh!
- 426. A double, huh, Shooter? Hmm?
- 427. I'm off-duty, Nilsen.
- 428. You hear me?
I'm off-duty discussing a case.
- 429. Now, IA shouldn't have
a problem with that.
- 430. Maybe I should put in
for some overtime, huh?
- 431. Don't work too hard, Shooter.
- 432. Might drive you to drink.
- 433. Stop riding me, man.
- 434. - I'll kick your fucking teeth in.
- 435. What's the problem?
- 436. No problem, Doctor.
Here comes the shrink...
- 437. Oh, come on.
huh, just in time
- 438. to save her favorite patient.
- 439. Just fuck off, Marty.
- 440. You kids have a good time tonight, huh?
- 441. - He's asking for it.
- That's right. So don't take the bait.
- 442. You wanna go?
- 443. - Yes.
- Let's go.
- 444. Sometimes I think he started banging her
- 445. just to get off the hook
with Internal Affairs.
- 446. He ain't that way. He's got a heart.
- 447. Nick!
- 448. - Stop! No!
- That's right. Come on.
- 449. No.
- 450. You like it this way. Keep it down.
- 451. Oh.
- 452. What was she like?
- 453. - Who?
- Catherine Tramell.
- 454. You had her pegged.
She used her book as an alibi.
- 455. I met her at Berkeley.
- 456. We were in some of the same classes.
- 457. Why didn't you tell me?
- 458. I'm telling you.
- 459. You've never been like that before.
- 460. - Why?
- You tell me. You're the shrink.
- 461. - You weren't making love to me.
- Who was I making love to?
- 462. You weren't making love.
- 463. I need a cigarette.
- 464. I thought you said you quit.
- 465. It's the top drawer in the foyer.
- 466. Get it on your way out.
- 467. Okay.
- 468. Scotty.
- 469. You look like dogshit.
- 470. - Nah, he looks a little shrunk, is all.
- Not just in the head.
- 471. All right. I made a couple of calls to
Berkeley. There was a murder in '80.
- 472. A professor. In his bed.
Multiple stab wounds. With an icepick.
- 473. Tramell was there then, wasn't she?
- 474. University records say she was.
- 475. Okay, let's move on this.
Gus, get out to Berkeley.
- 476. Harrigan, find out
what else she's published.
- 477. Andrews, you get me
that file on her parents' accident.
- 478. Copy Beth on everything.
I want psychological input on this.
- 479. What about me?
- 480. You're already
getting psychological input, hos.
- 481. You go soak your head
in a tub of ice water.
- 482. Nick...
- 483. You see where she leads.
- 484. Thank you.
- 485. No!
- 486. Uh-huh.
- 487. Ain't you got nothing better to do
than come in here
- 488. - and jack off the damn machine?
- What are you doing here, cowboy?
- 489. I came in here
to jack off the damn machine.
- 490. One dead psychology professor.
Noah Goldstein. Dr. Noah Goldstein.
- 491. And guess what?
- 492. He was her counselor.
- 493. Was she a suspect?
- 494. No, sir. They never even got
a statement from her.
- 495. Hazel Dobkins?
- 496. You know her?
- 497. Couldn't get it
out of my head for years.
- 498. Nice little housewife, three little kids,
- 499. nice husband, wasn't porkin' around,
no financial problems.
- 500. One day outta the clear blue sky,
she does 'em. All of 'em.
- 501. Used a knife
- 502. she got for a wedding present.
- 503. Didn't even deny it. Sweet as honey.
- 504. Said she didn't know why she done it.
- 505. - Hi.
- Am I disturbing you?
- 506. No. Come on in
- 507. Let's go upstairs.
- 508. I'm using you
for my detective in my book.
- 509. You don't mind, do you?
- 510. I was just gonna make
myself a drink. Do you want one?
- 511. No, thanks.
- 512. Oh, that's right. You're off
the Jack Daniels too, aren't you?
- 513. Got a, uh, few more questions to ask you.
- 514. I have some for you too.
- 515. For my book.
- 516. You have something against ice cubes?
- 517. I like rough edges.
- 518. So what do you wanna ask me?
- 519. How does it feel to kill someone?
- 520. You tell me.
- 521. I don't know. But you do.
- 522. It was an accident. They...
- 523. They got in the line of fire.
- 524. Four shootings in five years.
- 525. They were drug buys.
I was working undercover.
- 526. You wanna tell me about
- 527. Well, there's a name from the past.
- 528. You want a name from the present?
What about Hazel Dobkins?
- 529. Noah Goldstein was my counselor
in my freshman year.
- 530. That's probably where I got the idea
for the icepick. For my book.
- 531. Funny how the subconscious works.
- 532. Hilarious.
- 533. Hazel is my friend.
- 534. Well, your friend
took out her whole family.
- 535. Yes. She's helped me understand
- 536. Thought you would learn that at school.
- 537. Only in theory. But you know
all about homicidal impulse...
- 538. don't you, Shooter?
- 539. Not in theory, in practice.
- 540. What happened? Did you get sucked into it?
- 541. Did you like it too much?
- 542. I don't know what you're talking about.
- 543. Tell me about the coke, Nick.
- 544. The day you shot those two tourists...
- 545. how much coke did you do?
- 546. Come on. You can tell me.
- 547. - I didn't.
- Yes, you did.
- 548. They never tested you, did they?
- 549. Internal Affairs knew.
- 550. Your wife knew too, didn't she?
- 551. She knew what was going on.
- 552. Nicky got too close to the flame.
- 553. Nicky liked it.
- 554. That's why she killed herself.
- 555. Hiya, hon.
- 556. You two have met, haven't you?
- 557. You're gonna make
a terrific character, Nick.
- 558. She's on the phone.
She'll be right with you, detective—
- 559. Oh. I'm gonna
have to give you a call back.
- 560. - Detective. Detective, you can't go in—
- Let me call you back.
- 561. Who's got access to my file?
- 562. - What are you talking about, Nick?
- Who has access to my goddamn file?
- 563. Nobody. It's a confidential
psychiatric record, it would be illegal.
- 564. Don't do it. Don't you fucking lie to me.
- 565. - It's Internal Affairs. Was it?
- 566. - No, Nick. Please.
- 567. It's, uh.. Nilsen.
- 568. What do you want, Curran?
- 569. You sold her my file, didn't you?
- 570. What are you talking about?
- 571. Catherine Tramell.
- 572. How much did she pay you?
- 573. Hey. Come on!
- 574. - Let him go!
- Stop it!
- 575. How much?
- 576. Come on.
- 577. Hey, back off. Just back off, Curran.
- 578. Nice and easy now. Nice and easy.
- 579. You fucked yourself, Shooter. You hear me?
- 580. - You are out!
- Take it easy.
- 581. - Cool it. Take it easy.
- You are out! You're out.
- 582. - Okay, okay.
- Save it. Save it.
- 583. Nick!
- 584. - What's going down, hos?
- Nothing, all right. I'll be okay.
- 585. No, sir. You won't.
They're gonna want your badge.
- 586. I'm tired of being played with.
- 587. You got a real conclusive way
of demonstrating that.
- 588. She knows where I live and breathe.
- 589. She's coming after me, Gus.
- 590. What is it you got between you?
- 591. I don't know.
- 592. It's something though.
- 593. Something.
- 594. Yeah.
- 595. George Jefferson is unfair.
He's short with no hair.
- 596. Nick?
- 597. Nick, are you there?
- 598. Go away, Beth. I don't wanna see you.
- 599. I still have my key.
- 600. Put 'em on the table and leave.
- 601. Put 'em on the goddamn table
- 602. Damnit. Don't shut me out.
You owe me more than that.
- 603. I don't owe you anything.
- 604. You don't owe me anything.
- 605. We went to bed, what, ten, 15 times?
- 606. Maybe it wasn't memorable enough
to, to carry an obligation.
- 607. - Sometimes I really hate you.
- Oh! Why don't you get yourself
- 608. some friendly little therapist
and work out some of that hostility?
- 609. And maybe you can get off once in a while.
- 610. Are you nuts?
- 611. I'm sorry...
- 612. I don't usually act like that.
- 613. How could you give him my file?
- 614. I had to.
- 615. He was going to recommend
your discharge from the force.
- 616. He didn't buy my evaluation.
He said I wasn't objective.
- 617. So I made a deal with him to review
the session notes himself.
- 618. I didn't think he'd show them to anybody.
- 619. You did it for me?
- 620. Yes. I care about you.
I did it for you.
- 621. Go away, Beth. Please, just go away.
- 622. Yo.
- 623. I'm on my way.
- 624. One shot. Close range.
Probably a.38 caliber revolver.
- 625. Give me your gun, Nick.
- 626. You think that—
- 627. I don't, hos,
but I got the minority opinion.
- 628. Okay. I went after him.
- 629. I lost my temper.
- 630. You have any evidence that he showed
your psychiatric file to anyone?
- 631. No.
- 632. We'll speak with you afterwards,
- 633. I'd like to sit in. If you don't mind.
- 634. - I'd really rather wait until after—
- I don't see anything wrong
- 635. with Dr. Garner sitting in
if Detective Curran doesn't object.
- 636. Where were you last night?
- 637. Home. Watching TV.
- 638. All night?
- 639. Yes. All night.
- 640. Were you drinking?
- 641. Yeah, I was drinking.
- 642. When did you start drinking again?
- 643. Couple of days ago.
- 644. I saw Detective Curran at his apartment
about ten o'clock last night.
- 645. He was sober and lucid.
- 646. I asked him in my capacity
as his departmental therapist
- 647. about his altercation with Lt. Nilsen.
- 648. He expressed regret
and displayed no hostility.
- 649. How long were you at his apartment?
- 650. About 15 minutes.
- 651. I saw there was no reason
for my concern and left.
- 652. There's no smoking in this building,
- 653. What are you gonna do?
Charge me with smoking?
- 654. Oh, for Christ—
- 655. All right, Nick, I'm gonna ask you
this just once: for the record,
- 656. did you kill Marty Nilsen?
- 657. No.
- 658. Come on. I'm gonna storm
into his office in front of everybody
- 659. in the middle of the day
and kill him that night?
- 660. I'm not that dumb.
- 661. Going after him before
gets you off the hook for killing him.
- 662. That's your alibi.
- 663. Like writing a book about killing a guy
gets you off the hook for killing him.
- 664. Good point.
- 665. I don't understand.
What are you talking about? What book?
- 666. Private joke, asshole.
- 667. I don't think it's funny.
- 668. You're going on leave, Curran...
- 669. pending the outcome
of a psychiatric evaluation.
- 670. Beth! I'll get my stuff in a minute.
- 671. Beth!
- 672. Thank you.
- 673. It's the least I could do.
- 674. Considering, I got you into this mess
with those reports.
- 675. No. I mean it, thank you.
- 676. How do you know Catherine Tramell
saw your file?
- 677. She know things about me
that I only told you.
- 678. She must really be something...
- 679. from a clinical point of view.
- 680. What was she like in school?
- 681. I hardly knew her.
She gave me the creeps, though.
- 682. I don't know why.
- 683. Get some rest. Promise?
- 684. Beth. I didn't mean what I said
- 685. Yes you did.
- 686. I'm a big girl. I can handle it.
- 687. - Hey, you take care of yourself.
- What did you find out about the parents?
- 688. You're on leave, man.
- 689. You're on psycho leave. I mean,
I'm talking to a possible whacko here.
- 690. Well, you know I'm whacko, Sam.
What did you find out?
- 691. The boat blew.
- 692. There was a leak in the fuel line.
There have been two previous repairs.
- 693. They had a five mil policy on both of 'em.
- 694. A real heavy investigation,
but they got zilch.
- 695. Big goose-egg. It was an accident.
- 696. IA's gonna talk to you
more about Nilsen.
- 697. They're handling the investigation,
- 698. You stay in touch with Dr. Garner,
it'll help on the evaluation.
- 699. She killed him, Phil.
- 700. - Beth? Now you've got Beth killing people?
- No, Catherine Tramell.
- 701. It's part of her game.
- 702. First you've got her stealing your file.
Now you've got her killing Nilsen.
- 703. Forget about her for Christ sake?
Go somewhere. Sit in the sun.
- 704. - Ger her the hell out of your system.
- You don't buy it, do you?
- 705. She knew nobody would buy it.
- 706. She knew I'd say she did it.
And she knew that nobody would buy it.
- 707. She is screwing with your head, Nick.
- 708. Stay away from her.
- 709. I heard about what happened.
- 710. What good's a shooter without his gun?
- 711. How exactly did you find out?
- 712. I have attorneys. They have friends.
I have friends.
- 713. Money buys a lot of attorneys and friends.
- 714. Well, I wouldn't know about that.
I don't have any money.
- 715. I don't have any attorneys,
and Gus is my only real friend.
- 716. I wasn't talking about real friends.
- 717. Why doesn't Gus like me?
- 718. I like you.
- 719. - You do?
- 720. You wanna go upstairs and have a drink?
- 721. I didn't think you'd ask me.
- 722. Then I guess you don't know
your character that well.
- 723. Maybe, but we're learning.
- 724. Pretty soon I'll know you better
than you know yourself.
- 725. - Don't be too sure.
- Why not?
- 726. - I'm very unpredictable.
- 727. You ought to put some warmth
into the place.
- 728. You don't want it to reflect
on your personality.
- 729. I'm not trying to fool anybody.
- 730. Jack Daniel's all right?
It's gonna have to be.
- 731. - Ice?
- Yeah, great.
- 732. I was expecting you.
- 733. K-mart. A buck sixty-five.
- 734. Why don't you let me do this for you?
- 735. You like watching me do it, don't you?
- 736. Could I have a cigarette too, please?
See, I told you you'd start smoking again.
- 737. Would you light it for me?
- 738. Thanks.
- 739. So how much
did you pay Nilsen for my file?
- 740. Isn't he the policeman
that you shot, Shooter?
- 741. What if I asked you
not to call me Shooter?
- 742. Okay. How about if I call you Nicky?
- 743. My wife used to call me Nicky.
- 744. Yeah, I know. I like it.
- 745. Cheers. My friends call me Catherine.
- 746. What Manny Vasquez used to call you?
- 747. Bitch, mostly,
- 748. but he meant it affectionately.
- 749. Do you have any coke?
- 750. I just love coke with Jack Daniels.
- 751. Got a Pepsi in the fridge.
- 752. Well, it's not really the same thing,
now is it?
- 753. No, it's not.
- 754. So where is this going?
- 755. Hmm?
- 756. What do you want from me?
- 757. Say, "What do you want from me,
- 758. What the fuck
do you want from me, Catherine?
- 759. I brought you something.
- 760. Aren't you gonna say thank you?
- 761. What's it about?
- 762. It's about a boy who kills his parents.
- 763. They have a plane.
He makes it look like an accident.
- 764. Why'd he do that?
- 765. To see if he could get away with it.
- 766. When'd you write this?
- 767. You mean, did I write it
before my parents died?
- 768. Yeah.
- 769. No.
- 770. I wrote it years afterwards.
- 771. You're not gonna stop
following me around now, are you?
- 772. Just because you're on leave.
- 773. Absolutely not.
- 774. Good. I'd miss you.
- 775. You could get in trouble, though.
You're not really a cop anymore.
- 776. I'll risk it.
- 777. - Why take the risk?
- To see if I can get away with it.
- 778. How's your new book?
- 779. It's practically
- 780. Oh, I'll be leaving about midnight.
In case you are gonna follow me.
- 781. I'll be at Johnny Boz's club.
- 782. I'll meet you there.
- 783. Hi, Gus.
- 784. Forgive me for asking, hos,
and I don't mean to belabor the obvious,
- 785. but why is it you've got your head
so far up your own ass?
- 786. She wanna play. Fine, I can play.
- 787. Everybody she plays with dies.
- 788. I know what that's like.
- 789. Hi.
- 790. Looks good.
- 791. Hey. Shh.
- 792. Shh.
- 793. If you don't leave her alone,
I'll kill you.
- 794. Let me ask you something, Rocky.
- 795. Man to man.
- 796. I think she's the fuck of the century.
- 797. What do you think?
- 798. How long you been here?
- 799. You like watching,
- 800. don't you?
- 801. She likes me to watch.
- 802. Nicky...
- 803. Fuck.
- 804. The beach, C.
- 805. Hi.
- 806. Good morning.
- 807. Guess, uh, Roxy's not taking this
too well, huh?
- 808. She's seen me fuck plenty of guys.
- 809. Maybe she saw something
she's never seen before.
- 810. She's seen everything before.
- 811. Honey, I thought
I'd seen everything before.
- 812. Did you really think it was so special?
- 813. I told her I thought
it was the fuck of the century.
- 814. Well, what do you think?
- 815. I thought it was a pretty good beginning.
- 816. What about Roxy?
- 817. Is she more fun?
- 818. Do you like her
to join us sometime?
- 819. Did she join you and Johnny?
- 820. No, Johnny felt intimidated.
- 821. Look what happened to him.
- 822. Tell me, Nicky,
were you frightened last night?
- 823. That's the point, wasn't it?
That's what made it so good.
- 824. - You shouldn't play this game.
- Why not? I like it.
- 825. You're in over your head.
- 826. Maybe.
But this is how I'll catch my killer.
- 827. I'm not gonna confess all my secrets,
Nick, just because I have an orgasm.
- 828. You won't learn anything
I don't want you to know.
- 829. Yes, I will.
- 830. And I'll nail you.
- 831. You'll just fall in love with me.
- 832. I'm in love with you already.
- 833. But I'll nail you anyway.
- 834. You can put that in your book.
- 835. Thought I'd find you here.
- 836. Where the fuck you been?
I've been over to your place.
- 837. Easy, cowboy, easy. I wasn't there.
- 838. I went over last night, too.
- 839. Well, I wasn't there either.
- 840. You fucked her.
- 841. Goddamn dumb son of a bitch.
You fucked her.
- 842. Goddamn, you are one dumb
son of a bitch.
- 843. Next time I'll use a rubber.
- 844. I don't give a flying chili-bean fart
about a rubber.
- 845. Gus, Gus, Gus,
you're forgetting something.
- 846. - I got it, Harry. How much?
- 847. Got it.
- 848. I'm worried about him.
He's worried about rubbers.
- 849. You gotta protect yourself, Gus.
You really do.
- 850. What in the hell for?
- 851. You think I'm getting any?
- 852. I mean, sure, I can get laid
by goddamn blue-haired women.
- 853. I don't like 'em.
- 854. Don't knock it
till you've tried it.
- 855. Feeling better?
- 856. I feel fine.
- 857. How could you fuck her?
- 858. Gus, come on.
- 859. You wanna die, hos?
- 860. What is it? Those goddamn tourists?
- 861. You still feel so bad about that
you're wigglin' your way into an icepick?
- 862. Got too many goddamn tourists
coming here anyway.
- 863. Plenty more goddamn tourists
where they goddamn came from.
- 864. I'm not afraid of her.
- 865. Why the hell not?
- 866. I don't know. I'm just not.
- 867. That's her pussy talking,
- 868. it ain't your brain.
- 869. Gus, come on. Gus...
- 870. Disgusting.
- 871. IA done did a track
on It. Martin D for Dickhead Nilsen.
- 872. They found a safety deposit box
- 873. with 50,000 dollars in I,
taken out three months ago,
- 874. and not used since.
- 875. It doesn't make sense.
She didn't know me three months ago.
- 876. Maybe it wasn't her that paid him.
- 877. Maybe the money was for something else.
How the fuck do I know?
- 878. I'm just an old city cowboy
trying not to fall outta his saddle.
- 879. - You all right, cowboy?
- 880. Yeah?
- 881. Come on, I'll drive you home.
- 882. In that little pissant car of yours?
- 883. I ain't getting
no back pain disability retirement.
- 884. I am gonna get me a full pension
and a real gold-plate Seiko watch.
- 885. - Right. Move over. I'm driving you—
- You think I'd let you drive
- 886. my Cadillac car?
- 887. I ain't gonna let no head-up-his-ass
person drive my Cadillac car.
- 888. Grow up!
- 889. You wanna play, huh? Come on!
- 890. Come on!
- 891. Come on.
- 892. Roxy...
- 893. - MEDIC #1: All right. Ready?
- MEDIC #2: Okay.
- 894. Lieutenant!
I got the information.
- 895. Well, get it down here.
- 896. This is your statement? You signed
your name to this crock of shit?
- 897. Why not? It was an accident.
- 898. You're driving around North Beach,
for no particular reason,
- 899. and this car won't get out of the way.
- 900. I don't think she meant
to go off the edge, do you?
- 901. - Could we have him for a minute here?
- No, you cannot.
- 902. Don't fuck with me on this, Nick.
- 903. I don't need a reason
to put your ass in a sling.
- 904. Full name is Roxanne Hardy.
- 905. Last known address,
- 906. No priors, no convictions. The car
is registered to Catherine Tramell.
- 907. - You knew her, didn't you?
- Gus and I met her at Tramell's house.
- 908. All we did was write her name down.
- 909. You wrote her name down, and then,
big surprise, she rolls her car
- 910. down the hill in front of you and dies.
Is that what you're telling me?
- 911. That's all I know.
- 912. Well, you know what then? Fuck you, Nick.
- 913. Fuck you!
- 914. I want you in Dr. Garner's office
- 915. I told you to stay away from Tramell.
- 916. You didn't tell me
to stay away from the car!
- 917. I said I want you at Dr. Garner's office
at nine o'clock.
- 918. Who are you guys gonna sell
my file to now, huh?
- 919. You are out of control, Curran.
You hear me?
- 920. You see—
- 921. Hello, Nick. This is Dr. Myron
and Dr. McElwaine.
- 922. Nick.
- 923. They've been asked to consult with me
on this psychiatric evaluation.
- 924. Sit down, Nick.
- 925. Nick, we understand
you've been having some difficulty
- 926. controlling your temper lately.
- 927. Only in regard to one person.
- 928. Do you think Lieutenant Nilsen
deserved to die?
- 929. I didn't know him well enough.
I won't miss him.
- 930. Nick, when you recollect your childhood,
are your recollections pleasing to you?
- 931. Number one. I don't remember
how often I used to jerk off,
- 932. but it was a lot.
- 933. Number two. I wasn't pissed off
at my dad, even when I was old enough
- 934. to know what he and mom were doing
in the bedroom. Number three.
- 935. I don't look in the toilet
before I flush it. Number four.
- 936. I haven't wet my bed for a long time.
- 937. Why don't the two of you
go fuck yourselves?
- 938. I'm outta here.
- 939. What is your problem?
I'm trying to help you.
- 940. - Why won't you let me help you?
- I don't want your help. All right?
- 941. - I don't need your help.
- Yes, you do.
- 942. Something's going on.
You're sleeping with her, aren't you?
- 943. - What is this interest you've got in her?
- My interest is in you, not her.
- 944. She seduces people,
she manipulates people.
- 945. - She'll do anything she can—
- I thought you hardly knew her.
- 946. I know the type. I'm a psychologist.
- 947. That means
you manipulate people too, Beth?
- 948. You're a practicing psychologist.
You're better at it than she is.
- 949. I feel sorry for you, Nick.
- 950. Catherine!
- 951. Catherine!
- 952. I should have known. I...
- 953. I came into the house...
when you were down on the beach.
- 954. She looked at me so strangely.
- 955. She left right after you.
- 956. I...
- 957. I shouldn't have let her watch us.
- 958. She wanted to watch me all the time.
- 959. She tried to kill you, didn't she?
- 960. Did you like her to watch you?
- 961. Do you think I told her to kill you?
- 962. No.
- 963. Everybody that I care about dies.
- 964. It's okay. It's okay.
- 965. It's okay.
- 966. Make love to me.
- 967. Do you think she killed Johnny Boz?
- 968. For what? To set me up?
- 969. She loved me. She wouldn't frame me.
- 970. Maybe she got jealous of Johnny too.
- 971. No, she didn't.
- 972. She never got jealous before.
- 973. She got excited.
- 974. I don't have luck with women.
- 975. There was this girl...
- 976. I met while I was in college.
- 977. I slept with her once.
- 978. She started following me around,
taking my picture.
- 979. She dyed her hair, copied my clothes.
- 980. Lisa...
- 981. something Oberman.
- 982. It was awful.
- 983. I thought you didn't make confessions.
- 984. I never did before.
- 985. Another nice girl.
- 986. How old was she when it happened?
- 987. Sixteen.
- 988. We seal juvenile records
until they're deceased.
- 989. That's why you couldn't find it
in your computer.
- 990. What was the motive?
- 991. She said she didn't know herself.
Just sort of did it on impulse.
- 992. The razor just happened to be there.
- 993. It's what she said.
- 994. If you want, help yourself to some coffee.
- 995. Thanks.
- 996. I don't understand
what the hell's going on here, Gus.
- 997. Ain't that hard, hos.
- 998. This young farm girl got tired
of all that attention
- 999. going to her little brothers,
so she fixed them.
- 1000. Just like ole Hazel Dobkins
fixed her whole family.
- 1001. Except young Roxy here
didn't use a wedding present.
- 1002. She used daddy's razor.
- 1003. It sure makes you wonder what they talked
about when they set themselves down
- 1004. in front of the campfire at night.
- 1005. You ever met a friend of hers
who hasn't killed somebody?
- 1006. It must have beat your ordinary,
everyday girl talk.
- 1007. I'm not sure anymore if she did it.
- 1008. Which one are we talking about now, hos?
- 1009. We know ole Hazel did it.
We know young Roxy did it.
- 1010. And the other one...
- 1011. Well, she got that magna cum laude pussy
on her that done fried up your brain.
- 1012. Oberman, Mark W ., Donald M.
- 1013. Sorry. No Lisa.
- 1014. You sure about the year?
- 1015. Catherine Tramell graduated in '83. Yeah.
- 1016. She said Lisa Oberman
was here at the same time.
- 1017. Yeah, we have Tramell.
- 1018. But no Lisa Oberman.
- 1019. Are you sure about that?
There can't be a mistake?
- 1020. Only if you're making it, Detective.
- 1021. Hi.
- 1022. Hazel, this is Nick.
I told you all about him.
- 1023. Nick, this is Hazel Dobkins.
- 1024. You're the shooter, aren't you?
Well, how are you?
- 1025. Fine. Thank you.
Can I speak to you for a minute, please?
- 1026. Honey, would you wait for me in the car?
I'll be right there.
- 1027. Goodbye, Shooter.
- 1028. You like to hang out
with murderers or what?
- 1029. - You know that Roxy was—
- Yes, of course I knew.
- 1030. Look, I write about unusual people,
and sometimes when I do my research,
- 1031. I get involved with them.
- 1032. It happened with you.
- 1033. Killing isn't like smoking.
- 1034. You can quit.
- 1035. I've got to go.
- 1036. I promised I'd get her home
by six o'clock.
- 1037. She just loves America's Most Wanted.
- 1038. There was no Lisa Oberman
when you were at Berkeley.
- 1039. What are you doing? Checking up on me?
- 1040. For what?
- 1041. I said Hoberman.
- 1042. Hoberman. Lisa Hoberman. With an H.
- 1043. You do?
- 1044. All right. Thank you very much.
- 1045. You know
I can get my butt kicked for this.
- 1046. You're not even supposed to be in here.
- 1047. Come on, Sam.
It's only gonna take a minute.
- 1048. Yeah.
- 1049. Bring it up.
- 1050. It's Dr. Garner, isn't it?
- 1051. Bring up '83.
- 1052. You shouldn't leave your door open.
- 1053. I didn't There's something wrong
with my lock.
- 1054. What do you want, Nick?
- 1055. Tell me about Catherine.
- 1056. She told you, didn't she?
- 1057. What did she tell me, Beth?
- 1058. I slept with her once in school.
- 1059. I was just a kid. I was experimenting.
- 1060. It was just that one time.
- 1061. She developed a fixation on me.
- 1062. She styled her hair like mine.
She wore the same kind of clothes I did.
- 1063. It scared me.
- 1064. Isn't that what she told you?
- 1065. She said it was you.
- 1066. You dressed like her,
you dyed your hair blond.
- 1067. I did dye my hair.
It had nothing to do with her.
- 1068. - I was a redhead for a while too.
- Did you know Noah Goldstein?
- 1069. I had him for two classes.
- 1070. You saw all the reports, Beth.
Phil copied you. You never said anything.
- 1071. Well, what am I supposed to say?
- 1072. Hey, guys, I'm not gay,
but I did fuck your suspect.
- 1073. I was embarrassed. It was the only time
I've been with a woman.
- 1074. She's really sick, you know.
- 1075. Do you know what she's doing?
- 1076. She knows I went to Berkeley.
She knows I knew Noah.
- 1077. She makes up this story about me.
- 1078. She's handing you somebody
who's obsessed with her.
- 1079. She didn't hand you to me.
She doesn't even know who you are.
- 1080. She told me about a, uh, Lisa Hoberman.
- 1081. She knows you'd find out
who Lisa Hoberman is. You're a good cop.
- 1082. Did she tell you casually?
- 1083. Make it seem irrelevant?
- 1084. I mean, did she tell you in bed, Nick?
- 1085. That's what I'd do.
- 1086. Why did you change your name?
- 1087. I got married. He called me Beth.
- 1088. He was on staff at the clinic
down in Salinas.
- 1089. Didn't last long.
- 1090. Nick! God, do you really think
that I could kill someone?
- 1091. I mean, I never even met Johnny Boz.
- 1092. And what about Nilsen?
- 1093. What possible motive
would I have to kill Nilsen?
- 1094. You should get that lock fixed.
- 1095. God!
- 1096. She is evil. She is brilliant.
- 1097. Did I scare you?
- 1098. I wanted to surprise you.
- 1099. What's wrong?
- 1100. I found Lisa Hoberman.
- 1101. Oh, you did? What is she doing?
- 1102. Are you not gonna tell me
what she's doing?
- 1103. - I thought we were done playing games.
- I did too.
- 1104. She said you got it backwards.
- 1105. She said you even styled your hair
like she did.
- 1106. And you believed her?
- 1107. I had to go down to the campus police
and file a report about her.
- 1108. I suppose you still think
I kill people too, right?
- 1109. No.
- 1110. Liar.
- 1111. - So who'd you say you're with?
- Homicide. San Francisco.
- 1112. Here we go.
- 1113. Kind of.
- 1114. There was a report about a Lisa Hoberman,
January 1980, but it's outta here.
- 1115. Who's got it?
- 1116. One of your guys, Nilsen. You know him?
- 1117. Yeah. Thanks a lot.
- 1118. Yeah. Tell him to bring it back, will you?
He's had it a whole year.
- 1119. So Nilsen had a report on Beth. So what?
You don't know what the hell was in it?
- 1120. Catherine told me what was in it.
- 1121. - If she's telling you the truth.
- Oh, Gus, don't you get it?
- 1122. If Beth killed Johnny Boz
to frame Catherine,
- 1123. she wouldn't want anybody
to know what happened in Berkeley.
- 1124. But Nilsen found out about it.
And that gives her the motive to kill him.
- 1125. Well, how did she know Nilsen found out,
if it happened?
- 1126. He was IA. He-he probably asked her.
- 1127. She'd have to be nuttier
than a 20 pound Christmas fruitcake.
- 1128. She's not the one who hangs out
with multiple murderers,
- 1129. - your girlfriend is.
- She's a writer, all right.
- 1130. - That's her job.
- I don't buy it.
- 1131. There's gotta be somebody at Berkeley
who knows what the hell happened.
- 1132. I know what happened, all right.
Catherine told me.
- 1133. - And everything she says has checked out.
- You got goddamn tweety-birds
- 1134. - Fuck you, man.
- fluttering around in your head.
- 1135. - That's what you got.
- Fuck it!
- 1136. You think you can fuck like minks,
raise rugrats and live happily ever after?
- 1137. Oh man!
- 1138. How'd you get in here?
- 1139. What's, uh, what's this?
- 1140. I decided to give you a second chance.
- 1141. I missed you.
- 1142. I wasn't gone long enough
for you to miss me.
- 1143. Did you miss me?
- 1144. No.
- 1145. Now?
- 1146. No.
- 1147. Why don't you come over here
and tell me no?
- 1148. I've seen 'em before.
- 1149. Yeah? Well, you might not see 'em again.
- 1150. My book's nearly finished.
- 1151. And my detective's almost dead.
- 1152. - So I got time for a last cigarette?
- 1153. I've got to do some research
- 1154. I'm good at research. I'll help you.
- 1155. No thanks.
- 1156. What are you researching?
- 1157. Oh. A new ending to your book.
- 1158. Oh really? What's the twist?
- 1159. - The detective falls for the wrong girl...
- 1160. but he doesn't die.
- 1161. So what happens to them?
- 1162. They fuck like minks, raise rugrats,
and live happily ever after.
- 1163. It won't sell.
- 1164. Why not?
- 1165. Somebody has to die.
- 1166. Why?
- 1167. Somebody always does.
- 1168. Good morning.
I'm looking for a Dr. Garner.
- 1169. Oh, she doesn't work here anymore.
- 1170. I think she's up in San Francisco
with the police.
- 1171. Actually, I'm looking for her husband.
He works here too, doesn't he?
- 1172. - Dr. Joseph Garner?
- 1173. - Was she married?
- You know him?
- 1174. He died about five or six years ago.
- 1175. - How did he die?
- He was shot.
- 1176. Thank you.
- 1177. He was walking home from work.
- 1178. They only lived a couple of blocks
away from the clinic.
- 1179. - Somebody just drove by and shot him.
- What was the murder weapon?
- 1180. Revolver,38. Unrecovered.
- 1181. Were there any suspects?
- 1182. No suspects, no motive. Unsolved.
- 1183. Was his wife ever a suspect?
- 1184. You know, one of your guys was down here
from 'Frisco, about a year ago.
- 1185. He was asking the same exact thing.
- 1186. Do you mind telling me
what the hell is going on?
- 1187. - Routine.
- 1188. Yeah. That's exactly what he said.
- 1189. Now I got two of you guys come down here
and telling me it's "routine".
- 1190. Do you remember
what the other guy's name was?
- 1191. No. Can't really say that I do.
- 1192. Nilsen?
- 1193. Nilsen. Yeah, that was it.
- 1194. - So was she ever a suspect?
- 1195. There was some talk,
but it never panned out.
- 1196. What kind of talk?
- 1197. Girlfriend.
- 1198. What? He had a girlfriend?
- 1199. No.
- 1200. She did.
- 1201. Like I said,
- 1202. it never panned out.
- 1203. - Thank you.
- Yeah. Hope I helped you out.
- 1204. Yes, you did. You sure did.
- 1205. Catherine!
- 1206. Hi. I missed you.
- 1207. I finished my research.
- 1208. - I finished my book.
- 1209. So how does it end?
- 1210. I told you. She kills him.
- 1211. Goodbye, Nick.
- 1212. Goodbye?
- 1213. Yeah. I finished my book.
- 1214. Didn't you hear me? Your character's dead.
- 1215. Goodbye.
- 1216. What do you want? Flowers?
I'll send you an autographed copy.
- 1217. What is this? Some kind of joke?
- 1218. You playing a game here?
- 1219. Games are over.
- 1220. You were right.
It was the fuck of the century, Shooter.
- 1221. Catherine?
- 1222. I'll be right there.
- 1223. Catherine Tramell's roommate,
freshman year. I just got a call from her.
- 1224. She's over in Oakland. Come on.
- 1225. I've been phoning people
from her dorm all day.
- 1226. She must have heard
I was trying to reach her.
- 1227. She says she knows all about Catherine
and Lisa Hoberman.
- 1228. You feeling okay?
- 1229. Yeah.
- 1230. Here's something else.
- 1231. Johnny Boz's psychiatrist
has an office on Van Ness.
- 1232. Guess who he shares office space with?
Doctor Elizabeth Garner.
- 1233. What in hell's the matter with you?
- 1234. Hmm?
- 1235. I'll be in Suite 405.
- 1236. - Where the hell are you going?
- Going with you.
- 1237. You're on leave, hos.
It ain't gonna take long.
- 1238. Gus!
- 1239. Gus!
- 1240. Gus.
- 1241. Freeze!
- 1242. What are you doing here?
- 1243. Put your hands up.
Put your fucking hands up.
- 1244. I got a message on my machine
to meet Gus here. Where is he?
- 1245. Don't move. Don't you move.
- 1246. I know about your husband.
You still like girls, Beth?
- 1247. What?
- 1248. Take your hands out of your pockets.
- 1249. - Take 'em out!
- What's wrong with you?
- 1250. Take 'em out.
- 1251. I loved you.
- 1252. Oh, God!
- 1253. What makes you think she had a gun?
- 1254. What the hell was she doing here?
What was Gus doing here?
- 1255. Nick?
- 1256. Lieutenant.
- 1257. One of ours.
- 1258. Jesus.
- 1259. We'll have to check Beth's apartment.
- 1260. Thirty-eight caliber revolver.
- 1261. In the bookcase behind some books.
- 1262. Have ballistics check it for Nilsen.
- 1263. Lieutenant,
you'd better come in here.
- 1264. I guess that's it.
- 1265. We checked. It's her size.
- 1266. She must've heard you on the stairway
and dumped the stuff.
- 1267. There's no suite 405
in that building.
- 1268. Catherine Tramell's roommate
in her freshman year is dead.
- 1269. She died of leukemia two years ago.
- 1270. - Here's a fax of her death certificate.
- Okay, but what about Salinas?
- 1271. Yeah?
- 1272. Hold on. Jack?
- 1273. Jack! Did you check Nilsen's office
for any files on Beth Garner?
- 1274. - No police report from Berkeley.
- 1275. - Nothing at all about Salinas.
- 1276. I'm back. Yeah.
- 1277. Great.
- 1278. Ballistics says the.38 we found
in her apartment was used on Nilsen.
- 1279. No registration.
They're checking with Salinas.
- 1280. The icepick was the same brand
and model as the Boz weapon.
- 1281. We checked the tape machines
at Dr. Garner's apartment and her office,
- 1282. both here and the one on Van Ness.
There's no message from Gus on any of 'em.
- 1283. The tape in her apartment was unused.
- 1284. And Johnny Boz's psychiatrist says
he thinks he remembers Dr. Garner and Boz
- 1285. meeting at a Christmas party
at his house a year ago.
- 1286. You just can't tell about people, can you.
- 1287. Even the ones
you think you know inside and out.
- 1288. Congratulations, Curran.
- 1289. Hi.
- 1290. I heard about what happened...
- 1291. on TV.
- 1292. I...
- 1293. I can't allow myself to care about you.
- 1294. I can't allow myself...
- 1295. to care...
- 1296. I don't wanna do this.
Please, I don't wanna do this. I...
- 1297. I lose everybody.
- 1298. I don't wanna lose you.
- 1299. I don't wanna lose you.
- 1300. What do we do now, Nick?
- 1301. Fuck like minks...
- 1302. raise rugrats and live happily ever after.
- 1303. I hate rugrats.
- 1304. Fuck like minks, forget the rugrats,
and live happily ever after.
