I don't have a family now.

What I do have is a dead cop

and I need that package.

You don't understand.

I am leaving now to do my shopping.

I am going. I told the wife

two minutes ago, "I am leaving."

I understand. I'll tell you what.

Do your shopping and I'll see you

tomorrow morning. How's that?

Tomorrow morning

is Christmas morning.

Sorry, Webly,

but you can't have it both ways.

How's your office around 8:00 sound?

F*ck you.

Have it your way. 8:30.

And f*ck you.

- Here you go.

- Oh, thank you.

- I'm Ed Gates.

- Nice to meet you.

Excuse me a second. Thanks.

First Christmas away from home?

That obvious, huh?

Lucky guess. I'm Linda.

Jerry Beck.

I've heard your name.

I know, you're the one working

on the murder...

...of the sergeant that was killed.

How's it coming?

- It's coming.

- You don't sound convinced.

Well, right now I'm not convinced

of a lot of things.

- 'Tis the season to be jolly.

- That least of all.

Oh, I'm sorry.

I didn't mean to sound glib.

Well, it was nice meeting you.

Merry Christmas.


Don't go.

Carol. Carol, come here.

- Good morning.

- I have to go.

Well, you're certainly dressed for it.

I was gonna fix some breakfast.

- You want a cup of coffee? It's hot.

- No, thanks.

Here. I'll get you an Alka-Seltzer.

- What?

- What?


Oh, Alka-Seltzer.

Here, it'll fix you right up.

- No, thank you.

- Here you go.

What was that?

That is the Burbank Airport.

The world's quietest airport.

At least that's what they say

if you complain.

What's your hurry?


you said you had an 8:30 appointment.


...thank you for a lovely evening,


What happened?

Nothing. It's nothing to do with you.

I'm the only one here.

What I mean is, it's not you, it's...

It's me.
