It's a form! What could be simpler?! | All you must do is fill in the blanks!

What do I have to do, | hire a nursemaid to hold your hand?

Put ribbons in your hair?!

How many times must I tell you?!

If you want him down, | this is no huge problem.

You should be able | to fill out a form correctly!

And if you can't do that...

...then I'll just have to get | somebody who can.

I ain't going to ask you again!

Get back to your desk!

I was a good boy!

What's happening?

Well, well! | Why are you here?

Smelled business.

Third bureaucrat this month.

Enough of this shit. Tell Carl to | shoot him. He's f*cking up traffic.

His name?

Jeffrey Brose, Interstate | Commerce Commission...

...whatever that is.

The Interstate Commerce Commission?

- He didn't say that. | - Yes, he did.

Hold this.

Tell them, "Don't shoot. "

- Get back here! | - Hang on a second.

Strap in. This'll get weird.

I got to talk to him.

Go away!

Any improper behavior on the part | of any employee must be reported!

Just be easy, man. Look, I just want | to talk. I got no gun.

- I got no gun. | - I'll kill myself!

I believe you, I just got a question.

You work for the Commerce Commission?

No! They let me go! Threw me out!

You too? | They evicted me too.

They bought my apartment building so | they could turn it into a garage for-

They're so unfair!

I agree! The Durable Goods Division.

What the hell is that?

Don't work there anymore, | and they're on the second floor!

Do you know who I could talk to because | I phone, write and nobody calls me.

It's driving me crazy.

No! I'm crazy!

They were going to shoot you.

Christ, Regis, what are you, insane?

The gun's on safety.

All right, boys, | I'm thinking this looks...

...handled.

Let's get out of here.

Go, go!

Sector 6 secure.

Sector 1 secure.

Cory Luchessi.

I work here.

Sector 5 secure.

There's a gun on you. Get up, slowly.

Sorry, sir.

Sector 2 secure.

Sector 3 secure.

All sectors secure.

America held hostage, day 182. | A special report.

CNN has just received | this smuggled footage...

...showing American soldiers | in captivity and under extreme duress.

You see this?

The Government expressed outrage | upon viewing the tapes.

Sources say the U. S. Seventh Fleet | remains on full alert...

...in the Sea of Japan at this hour.

Air Force officials have reiterated | their initial statement...

...describing the mission as routine.

Can you believe this? | What is this President waiting for?

Is leaseholder one word or two?

One.

Damn!

In the face of growing support | for military intervention...

...the President urged patience, | stating negotiations-

Oh, I see.

So you negotiate for 13. | How many do you go to war for? 14?

Everything's about numbers.

Two drinks a day. Healthy. Three...

...you're an alcoholic.

- That's your third. | - Get me again, man.

It's Farr.

I'm not here.

Captain?

Yeah, I got a coat...

...and a tie.

1600 what?

Harlan Regis, homicide.

Detective Regis, come right on through.

Your weapon.

You'll get it back when you leave.

This way, please.

Gentlemen...

Straight ahead.

Look at that.

Straight down this hall to the left.

Multiple puncture wounds | to the upper torso and base of neck.

Wound would be 5 to 8 | centimeters across.

Rigor is progressive.

Get in here and take a look at this.

24, 25 years old, tops. She's a baby.

What is the world coming to?

- When was she found? | - About 11.

- Name? | - Carla Town.

My best guess is | she's dead maybe 3 hours.

- Where's the First Family? | - Camp David.

Left yesterday afternoon.

What's the murder weapon?
