Gary gave me your number.

Thought you might be

the right guy to talk to.

I got the red vinyl

of "bird blows the blues."

You got "bird blows the blues"?

Yeah, Charlie Parker.

I know, Charlie Parker.

You got the red one?


What kind of shape's it in?

It looks perfect to me.

No scratches.

But there's no...

There's no cover.

Yeah, it was made before

they started to make the covers.

I don't know anything

about records, but...

It's in the white record sleeve.


I'm gonna want

to buy that from you.

Let me call you right back.

- $5.

- Hello?

- Hey, it's Benny.

That kid call you?

Yeah, he says he has

"bird blows the blues."

That's why

I had him call you.

Where do you know this guy from?

He comes in the shop

and he buys stuff.

He's a nice kid.

You think he's legit?

I only know him from here,

but yeah.

I mean, he wouldn't try

to pull a fast one?

I mean, it could be

a fake or something.

He's not that kind

of kid,

not from any of

my business with him.

So why don't you buy it off him?

My customers don't buy

that high-end stuff over here.

Um, he said he'd give me a slice

if I helped him find someone.

Okay, thanks, Gary.

I'll talk to you later.

I would highly appreciate it

if you would let me go back

to sleep for like,

- five minutes.

Is that possible right now?

By highly appreciate it,

I mean, like,

it'll make me really,

really happy.

Did you eat?

I'm having juice.

Juice isn't food.

Well, I'm not hungry.

"Russia's most recent move

intensifies the already

heated confrontation,

causing unpredictable gyrations

of the Moscow

stock exchange."

We can't keep skipping.

They called my mom.

Your mom's the most timid

little freak I've ever met.

What did she do, like

tell you not to do it again?

She told me she'd

take my phone away.

Yeah, for like ten minutes.

And she said that I was

disappointing her.

You could walk into a mall

and shoot like 100 people

and she'd never be

disappointed in you.

Come on, please?

Don't make that face.

You're trying

to make me feel guilty!

I'm hurting inside!

That's what you're seeing.


You know,

I've gained some weight

and I'm not saying I'm fat,

I'm just not like ultra-skinny.

You shouldn't be


I'm not saying it's a bad thing

that I gained five pounds.

It sounds like that's exactly

- what you're saying.

- No, I'm stating a fact,

I have gained weight.

And you're terrified

of gaining weight.

No, I'm terrified of being fat.

If the scale said you've

gained five pounds, okay,

but I don't see

those extra five pounds

on your body.

New runner's here.

- Hi.

- Claire?

- Yeah. Hey.

- Phil. Hi.

- Nice to meet you.

- You, too.

- Come on back.

- Okay.

- Thanks for being on time.

- Yeah.

Today we're working on a story

that's either a suicide

or a murder.


A few days ago,

a man was found by his

wife in their bedroom.

He was shot in the head.

So we'll go down

to the apartment building,

maybe talk to some neighbors,

but our main goal...

Your main goal

is to talk to the wife.

Well, I... I didn't realize

that we were gonna be

jumping into something so big,

you know, right away.

It's big and it's not big,

depending on how you see it.

Terrible things happen

every day in this city.

After a while, you start

to see all of it

as a consistent, dependable,

and unavoidable pattern.

- Whoops!

I like to bang my head

a little in the morning

before coming into work.

Helps me get pumped for the day.

What kind of music do you like?
