And Professor Gerald sloane,

notably chummy with his female students...

...of which she was one.

Weekend home, Martha's vineyard.

I'm light. I'm light, people.

I need another team on the professor.

- I need an over-watch on the boyfriend.

- Is the phone up? Get the phone up.

Got it. We're up!

- You just come from cadre?

- Yes, sir.

- How long since you've slept?

- Not significant.

I don't have the bodies.

Call them in. Call them in.

His post was Harvard Yard.

Harvard Yard, northeast corner,

Lowell House, across from her dorm.

Night watch relieved him there, midnight.

Want to help me out?

- You understand?

- Yes, sir.

- I'm making myself clear to you, right?

- Yes, sir.

Okay, then. Once again.

She had lunch with her father.

Lunch with her father.

You were seconded to that?

- No, sir, I just had her.

- You just had her?

I had her all day.

Tucked her in at 1 o. And she...

Yeah, she had a tiff with her boyfriend,

Michael Blake.

- What was it about?

- I think it was about her...

- Her haircut. So it wasn't a serious...?

- No, no. No.

- And then I held the post until relieved.

- Well, then we've got a little problem.

I was there.

2312 hours, 19 May, Harvard Yard,

northeast corner, Lowell House...

...reveals no secret service presence.

Neither his post, nor adjacent.

A second tour, 233o, reveals similarly.

- I was there, sir.

- Who's lying, you or him?

You son of a bitch, I got 15 years in.

I got two kids.

You're not gonna sit there

and lie away my pension.

- I was...

- Do not say you were there.

I was on post.

Get up, motherfucker!

Don't you say you were on post!

Get up! You son of a bitch!

- Get up! You motherfucker!

- Get the f*ck out! Get the f*ck out!

Okay, sit down.

Shall I tell you what's gonna happen

to you when we find you out?
