So tell your friend.

Mm-mm. She don't like cops.

What kind of person

We're brave, honest, I got a great body.

Oh, God.

Well, I like cops. I'll date you.

She knows what I'm talking about.

Okay, while y'all talk about that,

I'm gonna take a break.

- Break time.

- Yes.

One of these times

I'm gonna get it.

You live 10 minutes away?

Ten minutes away?

We can make it there in five.

Ha-ha-ha. You are a

bad, bad, bad cop.

Yeah, you bring

the worst out in me.

What time does your shift

start tomorrow?

Six a.m. Why?

You wanna ride in together?

Is that an invitation?

I accept the invitation

only if I get to make the coffee this time.

Okay. But I don't like

my coffee too strong.

I don't like mine see-through,


So do we got a problem?

Call 911, we got a problem.

Then I want you to take the child

in your arms

Hey, hey, hey, when this thing

I'm devastated.

You missed your chance, Marco.

Oh, wait. I had a chance? Wait.

- Focus, my sweet, focus.

- I am.

911, where's your emergency?

A man is trying to

break into my house. I'm all alone.

Okay, sweetheart, calm down.

My parents are out.

They're at a movie.

I can't reach them.

I understand that, sweetheart.

Can you get out of the house?

No, he... He's out there.

It's okay, I've got your information.

Just hold on, sweetheart.
