You folks can't be out here.

We're just making our way back to our car now.

Double time it. The park closes at sunset.

It's too dangerous. Girls have been disappearing out here. You know?

Hey! Stop!

Oh Shit!

This is Officer Canon. Attention all units in the vicinity of Heritage Park!

We have a strangling victim with

the suspect fleeing the site.

White male, possibly the Brentwood Strangler. Requesting immediate assistance!

Brentwood Strangler

# It's the most wonderful time of the year

# With the kids jingle belling

And everyone telling

# You'll be of good cheer

# It's the most wonderful time of the year

# It's the hap-happiest season of all

# With those holiday greetings

and gay happy meetings

# When friends come to call

# It's the hap-happiest season of all

# It's the most wonderful time

# Yes, the most wonderful time

# Oh the most wonderful time

# Of the year

(breaking glass)

You got a car?


(knock at the door)

Who's that at the door?


Blind date...


Hi... Richard?

Do I look like Richard?

I don't know.

I mean, it's supposed to be a blind date.

Damn it. I'll admit it,

I cheated a little...

I always cheat

You're not Richard, are you?


X- Pro II

Very clever, but you don't need it.

You're better in person

Well, come on. I'll drive.

Do you usually drive on first dates?

Yeah is that a big deal?


What's wrong?

It's just weird

I don't think it's weird to drive


But, did you want to drive?

- No

- Then, why is it weird?

- I find it... usually controlling.

It has nothing to do with control... it doesn't!


- You look at pictures. - So? - And now,

you're driving. Don't see the connection?

Look, I am not getting into a stranger's car

that I've never met before

There you go.

- That's not controlling; that is smart.

- If you say so.

What difference does it make who gets into

whose car? Would you pick up a hitchhiker?

No, but it's completely different.

- Is it?

- Yes, that is a stranger.

- So I am

- No, you're not

- am too

- No, you are not

I read your profile and as you so graciously

continue to point out, saw you pictures.

Well, you obviously didn't

look very hard at the pictures.

- You grew a beard and did some filter thingy.

- X-Pro II

Big deal whatever...

I have your e-mails.

- We connected.

- I didn't write them.

- Yes you did! - No I didn't.

- Oh well then who wrote them? - Someone else.

- And, why would someone do that?

- Have you seen "Cyrano de Bergerac"?

I only read it in high school...

college... someplace

If you're saying, you had someone

else write those emails for you...

...because you lack social skills;

then, bravo for your amazing sense of self

You don't like me then

are we not getting along?

- I like you, Richard. - Good, then I can safely tell you that my name is not Richard.

Oh, I'm sorry,

I guess you prefer "dick".

Do you... prefer "dick"?

It depends...

- Hi... Two, please.

- Would you prefer, inside or outside?

- Inside...

- Very good, right this way.

Actually you go on ahead, sweetie.

I think I'll use the restroom real fast.

Relax, just have fun.

Oh my God! Steve, a Strangler

victim was just found and she's alive.

- Seriously? - Yeah. It's breaking news

right now. She was found in the park...

...unconscious and barely breathing.

- Sorry about that.

- Oh that's alright.

They just found another Strangler victim.

- Alive...

- What?

Look, it's on the news.

While details are still coming in...
