Be at Four Winds at 6:30.

- Mr. Morrison...

- I won't spend money to lose!

It takes a long time

to get a boat right.

She kicked ass to windward.

Yeah, she did that.

She'll be awesome

when we get her tuned.

If I'm not in the poorhouse!

Hi, Jillian.

This is Tim Whalen.

Jillian Wilde.

- Hi.

- I'm out of here.

Obsession is spending

the summer in the yard.

Tim's gonna stay with her.

Anybody have a chauffeur's cottage

or garage apartment available?

I'll ask around.

Got to keep my captain happy.

This is the first summer

I've looked forward to in years.

He really trusts me.


Your husband.


Thank God.

It's not that painful, is it?

No, that's the problem.

It feels too good to stop.

We could always give it a try.

Maybe we should stop... this.

Or maybe this.

Wait, wait, wait.


You want your birthday

present, don't you?

You remembered.

That's more than my husband did.

You want me to put these on?

I can't bite them off if you don't.

Olivia Lawrence.

Marjorie Little.

Kathleen Monahan.

I love you, Dad.



How are you?

Get in.

What's this?

- I'm a cop.

- Yeah, I can see that.

I thought you were gonna study law.

I did. I worked my little buns off,

took the state police

forensics course,

and now I am the law.

- When did you get in?

- Last night.

You seen anybody?

No. I've been in the house all day.

I'm sorry about your mom.


Headquarters to 209.

That's me.

Respond to Le French Crepe,

Main and Hampton.

Theft of service. 10-4?


It's a ditch and dine.

I gotta roll.

First major crime wave

of the summer.

- Okay.

- Okay.

Lawrence dropped them off.

Two minutes later... boom!

Six people are dead.

Harbormaster said

they never knew what hit them.

Your old man's

a real barrel of laughs.

Two or three

propane explosions each year

Not much sense getting killed

because of a $5 piece of flexihose.

Why don't we

take a look right now?

Thanks, Sam.

If he needs it, use it.

I heard Obsession is gonna be in

most of the summer.

Morrison's doing about

200 thous' worth of work.


If I wasn't doing it, I'd swear his

hot-shit captain was in for a taste.

He told me to take my time,

only use the best.

Maybe he just wants a summer

in the Hamptons.

I gotta go.

Did you ever meet him

on the Southern Circuit?

- Who's that?

- Tim Whalen, Morrison's captain.

I heard of him.

I never met him.

It's funny.

I know I've seen him somewhere.

You coming to dinner this week?

- How's Wednesday?

- I'll tell your mother.

I'll see you later, Pop.

How you doing?

- Hey, Tommy.

- Captain.

I got some parts

for you to look at.

May I please see your invitation, sir?

It's all right, Mike.

He's with me.

Nice to see you, Mrs. Morrison.

I didn't see your name

on the invitation list.

I'm crashing.

- You look incredible.

- Thank you.

- Have one on me, okay?

- Okay.

I understand youre teaching

at the club.

I just started.

Well, my two little granddaughters

already have mad crushes on you.

There's someone

I want you to meet.

The Lawrence girl.
