In El Paso, Texas today...

The historical presidential...

motorcade marks the first time

within a generation a president

has set out across the country--

Copy. HP, go to Channel Three.

Hey, this is Nico.

The street's secure and chief in sight.


Plaza secure.

Can you hear me?

Can you hear me?

Hear me. Try to open your eyes.

Can you hear me?

Can you hear me?

You're gonna be just fine.

You're gonna be just fine.

So, Doc.

What's the word on our John Doe?

Trauma to the right parieto-occipital

sulcus and parietal lobe.

In English, por favor.

The bullet ricocheted off the skull

and missed his brain. He's in a coma.

So he's out, but physically he's okay?

We, he's not gonna play eighteen

holes of golf, Jack.

He's in a coma. He may never come to.

Well, what are his chances?

Give me a number.

Well, fifty percent total recovery.

Thirty-five percent partial.

Fifteen percent you can plant him

in the ground and watch him grow.

But we may have to move him to


Now, hold a minute.

I don't want this guy playing

zombie up at Albuquerque

while we got a murderer

running around here.

Now, you do whatever it takes

to snap his ass back to reality.

Pronto. You call me the minute he breaks.

Jack. All I got out here is this damn hat.

Don't let anyone touch that hat, Shirl.

I need to get prints.

Expand the perimeter another

hundred yards.

Sift through every little grain of sand.

You know, evidence has a way of

disappearing right quick out there.

And I know how you like forensic.

I know how you good you are with it

and I know you know

it's the coming thing.

We'll check this thing from ass to appetite.

Okay, the doc's here. I gotta go.

Mind if I smoke?

You know what I'm gonna do one day?

I'm gonna go traveling.

You ever been in New Guinea?

How about Africa?


That'd be nice.

Have a real good day.

Maybe if you get better I'll take

you to one of those bullfights.

Oh. Rio. That's where we're going.

Sir? Sir....

excuse me, you need to-

I've got no comment. Christ.

That's all we need is a bunch of

Albuquerque reporters stirring sh*t up.

I don't want the town to get excited

about this guy.

Don't worry about it. I'll brief 'em.

Yeah. But you guys have to promise

me no more than five minutes.



This is Sheriff--

Sheriff Kolb. You can call me Jack.

It's a small town. This is my deputy.

Shirl Cash. Have you got a name, son?

Say, you wouldn't happen to know...

who might have done this to you,

do you?

Is he hearing me?

He was responding.

I can hear. I can hear you fine.

I just wondered if I knew you.

If you knew me, no.

We, I mean, we stopped by

the room here when you admitted,

but you were unconscious at the time.

You're the sheriff of, she said,

it was, b-, it was bI-. Black Hole.

Black Point.

Black Hole's close enough.

And, uh...Sheriff,

Sheriff Jack, could you tell me-.

Do you know who I am?

Do I know who you are? Well, no.

I was hoping you'd be able to tell me that.

See, we didn't, didn't find any I.D.

You wallet was probably lifted.

In fact, all we found was this.


Does that mean anything to you?

Tried calling it, but it was a pager

of some sort. No?

Well, what about this?

This, you recognize that?

It's a hat.

It is. Old Man Grant down at the

convenience store said a stranger

bought one just like it and used

his ATM machine.

Does any of that ring a bell with you?

Just old hat.

Well, it looks like we just gotta

get stuck into it

and watch us a lotta ATM

footage see if something shows up.


Now, if, uh,
