Look at him, trying to be humble.

He saved the mother's life.

- Oh.

- That's all he did.

Impressive.

So tell your friend.

Mm-mm. She don't like cops.

What kind of person

doesn't date a cop?

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...

So do we got a problem?

Call 911, we got a problem.

Then I want you to take the child

in your arms

and exit the building quickly.

Hey, hey, hey, when this thing

with Phillips start?

I'm devastated.

You missed your chance, Marco.

Oh, wait. I had a chance? Wait.

Hey, Jordan, what's the code

for a multiple stabbing?

- Uh... Two forty-five.

- Hey, lovebird?

- 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.

Any units clear to handle hot prowl

in progress? 23 Kinnard Street.

P. R. is alone and hiding.

7- Adam-13.
