This is Patrol GXP 1198

calling Alpha Tango Delta.

Come in.

- Over.

- Do you hear that?

Charlie, it's Jeff.

I'm on Route 22.

Come on, lover, pick it up.

- Cut the horseshit, Jeff.

- Ooh, sorry, Harv.

- I didn't know you were in.

- What do you need?

Just signing off

Okay, 1948.

A Missouri housewife is kidnapped

by six little men with orange heads

on her way to the laundromat.

All right!


What the hell

was that?

Did you see that?

That was the best one we ever did!

Yeah, that was...

that was real good.


Best in the state.
