Fighting crime.

I'll try not to

get offended.

You broke the 200 bucks an hour


That's why I'm not seeing you.

It's a reason.

But not the reason.

You lit a cigarette,

and you're not smoking it.

I'm trying to quit.

So it's kind of a crutch.

I'm an addict, okay?

It's a crutch.

Kind of like having two drinks a night.

I'm not an addict.

Sure you are.

Let's review.

Why didn't you review

before I got here?

I did, but now I'm gonna review

With you.

Why is this so hard?

Are you still having two drinks

a night?

- Yes.

- Ever break your rule?

Couple of times.

Couple of times in two years?

- More or less.

- More?

Or less.

Last time we talked,

You said that, uh,

were seeing someone.

- I was.

- You said you liked her.

I still do.

So, you're still

seeing her?

I am not.

Have you talked to your wife?


I'm sure that's in there,

And no, I have not talked

to Jenn.

But you wanted to. Old habit.

I used to talk to her every day.

So, why'd you stop?

I ripped the phone

out of the wall.

Why'd you rip the phone

out of the wall?

Because it was pathetic.

So, since you stopped

talking to her,

- You've gotten drunk a couple of times.

- No.

I got drunk a couple of times

since I stopped seeing you.

And why are you seeing me now?

Because I got drunk

a couple of times

Since I stopped seeing you.


You are a subversive

son of a bitch.

Nothing happens here.

You did too good

A job cleaning up dodge.

I lost my conscience.

That's definitely not in here.

You lost your conscience.

Is that kind of

a feeling you got?

- Yes.

- And you're frightened.

I've been afraid

of half the things I ever did.

But you're frightened now?



Because I lost my conscience.


(inhales sharply)


(classical music playing)


(waves crashing)

Fate wouldn't do this to me.


Took so long

to acknowledge a connection,

Admit there was a bond.

Life plays tricks on you.

(birds singing)

oh, oh, oh


ooh-ooh, ooh, ooh...

ooh, ooh, ooh


ooh, ooh-ooh, ooh

ooh, ooh, ooh


ooh, ooh, ooh...

(birds singing)

ooh, ooh, ooh


ooh, ooh, ooh


ooh-ooh, ooh, ooh...

(indistinct chatter,

phone ringing)

(footsteps approaching)

It's done.

Healy signed off?

He did. I don't know why

you need paper.

I only work from paper.

How's the weather in florida?

He described it as predictable.

Did he seem upset

that I interrupted his vacation?

I interrupted his vacation,

and he seemed grateful.

Must be staying

with his in-laws.

Last time got complicated--

healy's words.

Lieutenant greenstreet,

Under these rather

unique circumstances,

How do I address you?

As sydney.

As sydney, jesse.


This is complicated.

My words.

I'm undermanned.

That's sad.

Anyway, the price was right.

Why would you work

for expenses, jesse?

I still get my pension

from L.A. Homicide.

I don't need the money.

I need the work.

This is a small sampling

of open cases.

Some cold, some recent

but cold. Take your pick.

Thank you.

Raise your right hand.

You're kidding.

Well, last time, you ran away

with the consultant thing.

Let's make it official.


I... State your name.

I, jesse stone.

Do solemnly swear

I will well and truly serve...


Do solemnly swear that

I will well and truly serve

The united states of america

And the state

of massachusetts...

(distant horns honking)

(guitar playing slow jazz)

(crowd chatter)

- Scotch neat.

- Sure.



help me, please

have mercy on a fool like me

so unwise
