and founded Wilby.

Yes, Stan, we know.

What about the investigation?

All we can officially say

is that certain individuals

became aware of the goings-on,

ergo we received

the information,

ergo the current official police

investigation is currently under way.

- Can we get a shot?

- Of what? Me?

Okay, kind of like what?

Kind of like

Let's try one not smiling.

Oh, okay.

Mr. Jarvis, hi.

got two showings this afternoon.

Get back to me and let me

know you got this message.

What are you doing with that?

- It was my mom's.

- For god's sake, buddy,

it's a piece of junk.

Leave it for the cleaners,

they'll be happy to have it.

I'll call you later.

Deena Yeah, yeah fine.

Don't worry about it,

you're in now.

Did Mayor Fisher call yet?

- Morning, duck.

- Morning, Sandra.

- You're looking fit.

- Yeah.

I've been working on my abs.

Give that a feel.

- Uh, my hands are all

- Maybe later.

- What is it?

- That business at the watch. Poor bastards.

Will you come by for

coffee later or something?

Okay. And then tonight, right?

- Excellent.


Do you think Stuart's gay?

Something's coming

I just know,

I can feel it

and it's

something good

and I'm just

getting near it

I like to walk barefoot

on the ground

and all around

a thousand birds

make the sweetest sound

something's coming

I just know,

I can hear it

oh so pure

and clear

and I'm just

getting near it

I like to run barefoot

in the wind

Where were you?

- I thought you were going to open up?
