Ruin my Saturday afternoon

in front of the TV.

Guy's in trouble, in a motel

room with half a million...

...scared, writing on everything,

making desperation calls.

He covers his trail: Burns his

clothes, swallows that paper.

That happens in the morning,

and he's dead by noon.

Maybe that piece of paper

wasn't digested.

Intestinal gases. The ever-loving

death fart of a warthog.

All we got are two names:


...and a date written on

a fast food wrapper...

...kind of looks

like an appointment:

"Noreen. "

Who the hell is Noreen?

Ease off. You're as persistent

as a dog with two dicks.

You'll owe me for this one.

Promise you that.

Looks like a radish.

They in season?

Oh, cut it out, Bert.

And here's a carrot.

Garbanzo beans.

This may be putrefied lettuce.

Must've been a salad bar.

There's a sorrowful last act

for a desperate man.

Hey, maybe Noreen was with him.

Maybe she had

a big burger with fries.

Maybe Mr. Goodman had apple pie.

Yeah, it's all starting

to make sense now.

We'll call it

"The Big Lunch. "

Wait, what is...?

Goddamn. This looks like paper.

It's that kind of waxy paper

they wrap hamburgers in.

It's got about a 200-year half-life.

Something's written on it.

- What's it say?

- It's smeared.


- Numbers.

- Son of a bitch.

Seven digits doesn't mean

it's a phone number.

We're sorry. The number you've

reached is not in serv...

Maybe it's in Utah.

Motel didn't have a

long-distance record.

He used a credit card

or billed another number.

We're sorry...

- What's the area code in Texas?

- They have five.

You are one tenacious S.O.B.

You calling all 50 states?

Maybe that's not a six,

but a zero.

Holy unrelenting bastard.

- Hello?

- Hi. Who's this?

This is 803-1424.

And who is this?

Mr. Spenser.
