[ Typewriter clacking ]

[ The zombies'

"time of the season" playing ]

It's the time of the season

when love runs high

and this time,

give it to me easy

and let me try

with pleasured hands

to take you in the sun to

promised lands

to show you every one

it's the time of the season

for loving

right over here.

[ Indistinct conversations ]

I just need to

swing by my office for a minute,

and then I'll, uh, I'll meet you

at the property.

[ Engine starts ]

[ The turtles' "she'd rather

be with me" playing ]

Some girls

love to run around

love to handle everything

they see

but my girl

has more fun around

and you know

she'd rather be with me

Uh, yeah, I've seen

the before and after.

Lucky guy is what I am

Well, for that location,

this is the best price

on the market.

She don't fly

Now I'm telling you,

the seller is very motivated.

Bring me an offer.

Some girls

love to run around

they don't think about

the things they do

uh-huh. Uh-huh.

What? What?

Oh, sorry. Something's going on

here that doesn't look right.

And you know

he'd rather be with you

Look, I've gotta go.

I'll call you later.

[ Receiver clatters ]

Lucky guy is what I am

[ Engine starts ]

But my girl

has more fun around

and you know

she'd rather be with

yeah, she'd rather be with

you know she'd rather be

with me

[ Both speaking indistinctly ]

ba-ba-ba-ba, ba-ba, ba

ah, you know

she'd rather be with me

ba-ba-ba-ba, ba-ba, ba

ah, you know

she'd rather be with me

ba-ba-ba-ba, ba-ba, ba

you know she'd rather --

[ Siren wailing in distance ]

[ Dog barking in distance ]

Hey! stop! Stop! Officer!

You trying to

get yourself killed?

Maybe I'm losing it,

but I think I just saw

some man lure a little girl

into his car.

They -- they drove into this

building right here.

[ Static crackles ]

i need backup at 6638 densmore,

suspected child abduction.

[ Static crackles ]

Show me.

He took her up there.

First door, first door.

Police officer. Open the door.

I need to talk to you.

okay. Okay.

Look, give me a minute,

all right?

[ Pounds on door ]

i need to talk to you now!

I just got out of the shower.

I need to get dressed.

Take off the chain

and open the door first.

Open the door

or I kick it in!

when I saw that

little girl lying there,

something changed inside of me.

Two tours in the marines,

four years as a police officer,

I'd thought I'd seen


But nothing prepared me

for the brutality

I saw that day.

8-year-old Rosie Hoffman

had been viciously raped

and beaten unconscious

and had stopped breathing.

With 8-year-old Rosie Hoffman,

I felt like god was

giving me another chance.

[ Inhales sharply ]

Come on. Breathe.

[ Shallow breathes ]

Rodney alcala, the deviant who

attacked her, got away.

Because of repeated failures

in the justice system,

he would keep getting away.

[ Siren wailing ]

Three months later,

i made detective

instead of looking for him.

I had no idea that alcala

could turn out to be

one of the most prolific

serial killers in history.

At the time,

i just wanted to kill him

for what he did

to that little girl.

Years later,

I would get that chance.

[ "The dating game" theme

playing ]

here's your host --

Jim lange!

thank you!

Thank you!

And welcome to the show

that makes a game of dating.

I bet you're used

to the game already.

Let's get started and meet

our first three

eligible bachelors

for game number one!

And here they are!

Rodney! Rodney!

Let's meet our lucky lady

who gets to choose between...
