start looking for that nun.

Somebody's got to find her.

Boy I'll bet that guy doesn't

even like his own mother.

I'm not sure he had one.

You've been chasing hoodlums

for so long, you don't know

how to treat ordinary people.

Warm up will you?

Sure, I'll fall in

love for you.

I don't think you could because

you don't know what a

love affair is.

It's what goes on between

a man and a 45

pistol that won't change.

Let me tell you about you Al.

That badge an a few law books

have turned you into a nut.

You don't like anybody.

You don't believe anybody.

You don't trust anybody.

You think everybody has a pitch.

Everybody has.

You and I and a guy back there.

A better job, a

little more dough, a

round of applause.

One way or another, everybody

you meet is a pitch artist.

Keep me posted.

And remember one thing Al.

The biggest thing on

your aside isn't a

pair of brass knuckles.

It's time and men and patience.


Now do you mind if I find out

who killed Harry Gruber?


No, I'm sure you will Al because

you're a good cop.

That's about all you are.

Yup, this is where it happened.

The nun went west

on 34th street.

First block up.

Are you from out of town?


I'm a stranger here.

Let's go west on 34th.

Dead end as far west as you go.

Well this doesn't send

me any message.

Let's go.

What's that over there?

The river?

Railroad yard.

Some kind of a switching point.

Mind if I take a look.

I wouldn't want you

to get lost Mr.

Good evening.


How long do the trains

stop here?

Just long enough to switch

over, five minutes.

Any of them stop any longer

for any reason?




You talking about that

train last night?

What about it?

Passenger train at fort Wayne.

Got hung up here for about
