somewhere around here.

Is it OK if I look for it?

- Remember where you had it last?

- Yeah, it was over here somewhere.

What's the matter, bud?

Come on! Get out of here, will you?

Pick up Smiley Freeman

and everybody connected with him.

Put him in a line-up.

See if Johnson can identify anybody.

I want everybody. No excuses, no lawyers.

- I want everybody.

- Will do.

See if you can pick up anything on

that car. Somebody may have seen it.

Mrs. Johnson, that's not your husband.

The man was killed. He saw it happen.

He... he's right over here.

Sorry I had to get you out of bed,

Mrs. Johnson.

But, after all, we had to

make sure that he had a wife.

- Where is he?

- He took a powder.

Sergeant, pick up Johnson.

Idiot will get himself killed.

Get down there and cover the park!

Just like him, always running away.

What do you mean, "always running away"?

- Running away from what?

- From everything.

Broadcast a description.

White male American.

Wears a trench coat, soft brown hat.

A very ordinary-looking feller,

I'm afraid.

Yeah. Well, how would you describe

your husband, Mrs. Johnson?

I couldn't. I haven't been

able to for a long time.

May I go now? Come on, you mutt.

- Nice dish, huh?

- Nice-looking dish.

I want everything shut off.

Bridge controls, roadblocks, everything.

- I'll stick with her.

- Right.

Did you hear the shots fired?

How could I? I was in bed, sound asleep.

Find any pictures of him?

No, but plenty of her.

Just some tired snaps of him.

Hm, they won't do anybody any good.

But keep 'em.

Reads books on psychology.

I wonder why. Has he got a problem?

I wouldn't know.

Maybe he's confused. Aren't we all?

Pipe smoker? Hm.

- What does that mean?

- Nothing.

Oh, he's got two suits,

one of which he's wearing.
