Hello.

Tackleberry.

We're gonna miss you around here.

The police academy's getting themselves

a real fine recruit.

May I go now?

Affirmative, sir.

Yes, of course, 10-4.

You guys.

Surprise.

The lot's full, mister!

Look, don't give me that crap.

- You've got a space.

- The lot's full, sir, really.

Find a spot, dickhead.

- Dickhead?

- That's right. Where is the manager?

Dickhead?

Park the car, butt breath!

Butt breath?

Wait a minute. Hold everything.

That's a wig, isn't it?

- Park the car.

- Yeah, that's a wig!

Wig!

Park the car, asshole! Shut up!

Girls! It's a rug! It's a...

Mahoney? What the hell's going on here?

Hi, Lou.

This rude little punk won't park my car.

- Mahoney, park this car.

- Take a look. If you can find a spot...

Do it now or you're fired.

You understand? Fired.

That's not fair.

The guy has a bad attitude.

Do it.

I want you to apologize to this man,

then park his car.

Yes, sir.

- I'm sorry.

- Get out of here.

And clean the ashtray while you're at it.

I'm sorry, Lou.

You just can't get good help these days.

...respect for anything.

They don't respect customers or property.

They don't respect respect.

Holy shit! Jesus!

It fits! Damn thing fits.

I thought there were no more spaces.

Am I an idiot or what?

Hi, fellows.

Guys, I don't think I'm supposed to

get the photos wet.

You're gonna pay for this.

Mark my words!

And you wanna know why?

I'll let you know why. It's no secret.

Everybody knows.

I'm joining the police force!

What do you think of that?

Now who's in charge?

Hey, Sarge, it's him again.

I'll call Capt. Reed.

Sit over there, Mahoney.

Sit. And stay there.

What are you in for?

I'll show you.

God damn it, stop that!

No, sir. Not you.

That's terrific. Really.

- What's your name?

- Jones. Larvell Jones.

Monsignor Larvell Jones.

- M.D.

- Let's go, Mahoney.

- See you around, Monsignor.

- Doctor Monsignor.

Why can't you stay out of trouble?

What's wrong with you?

Last week, disturbing the peace.

Week before that,

destroying private property.

And I'm getting tired of saving your butt.

I only do it because of your father.

- He was a good friend.

- Yeah, I know.

Mahoney, I've made a decision.

I ain't gonna help you this time.

You're going to the county lockup.

Lockup?

Why? I didn't do anything really major.

- Then I'll make a deal.

- Anything.

I want you to go to the police academy.

The police academy?

Even if you never graduate,

the training will be good for you.

Wait a minute, Reed.

Listen, you've seen

the commercials on TV?

The academy's taking all kinds these days.

Anybody can get in.

Even you.

No deal. That's nuts.

It's either that or the lockup.

- Police academy or jail.

- Will I get my own squad car?

You'll get 14 weeks

of academy training and discipline...

starting Monday morning.

Fourteen weeks.

They can throw you out.

But you can't quit.

If you quit, you're back in jail.

And that's the deal.

- Can I bring a friend?

- Who?

Monsignor Larvell Jones.

He's my personal physician.

You decide.

Honey, please don't go. I love you.

I don't want to see you get hurt.

I worry about you.

You're so accident-prone.

And the police academy

is such a dangerous place.

Honey, don't worry. I'll be okay.

Everything will be okay.

You start that car

and you're a dead man, buster.

Honey, I'm late.

You pull out of that driveway

and I'll have your head on a pole!

You move this car an inch

and you're finished, mister! You hear me?

Of all the things that you could be

in this world, why a policeman?

A policewoman, Mother.
