Wait, man.

Hey, hey,

hey, hey, hey!

Put the clipboard

down, Serpico.

He's just getting

ready to move that, man.

Oh. Okay, great.

If you could just move it,

that'd be great.

Cool, man, no problem.

Damn, came out

of nowhere.

City make you

wear them shorts?

Yeah, these are regulation-

we have to wear 'em

till December 1.

Between those shorts and

that little-ass truck,

the shit's humiliating, man.

It's a living, right?

Man, I'm glad

I seen you when I did.

I can't afford

another ticket.

Ooh, actually, you know,

it's already been processed.

Whatcha talking about?

Well, this clipboard's

a computer.

You see, once I push "send,"

it goes straight to Albany.

It's in the system.

Well, un-send

it, then.

You can't un-send it;

it's too late.

You're not listening.

Now, I'm telling you,

take my shit

out the system,

meter maid.

Uh, guys, please...

- I have to get going...

- Get going?!

Where the hell

you think you're going?

You slam the door on me?

Hey, boy, get your ass

out of that box!

I'll start kicking

your ass, boy. What...

Hey, where you going?

Get away.

Turtle One to base,

Turtle One to base, come in.

Hello?

Hey, hey, hey! Hey!

Look at him.

- Don't make me use it, man.

- Use it.

Don't hesitate!

Shoot his ass!

Yo, man!

Man, what the

hell happened?

Shit, Lloyd, you hit him.

No, I don't think so.

It must have been

a ricochet.

Hello!

Hello!

Were you hit by a ricochet?

Little ticket man!

Blink twice

if you can hear me!

Man, he ain't hit nowhere.

He's faking, man.

He just fainted.

Aw, man, you okay?

Yes.

I'm sorry, I just...

I get these panic attacks

sometimes, that's all.

Damn!

You can't do this

to me, man. Huh?

I get nervous, you had

my heart going all fast.

- I-I'm sorry, really.

- Yeah.

You know, just... here, let me

pay for your ticket, okay?

Yeah, that's more like it.

Here you go, that's $80-

that should cover it.

I- I mean,

$80 is nice, dude,

it's sweet, but what about

all the mental distress

I just went through?

You got something for that?

Yeah.

What else you got?

Could someone explain to me

how one

of my parking enforcement agents

manages to lose his badge,

his uniform

and his standard-issue

New Balance sneakers.

What could I do, Sarge?

They took everything.

I'm sorry.

I... I was reading through

my employee benefits,

and it says

I'm entitled to meet

with a government counselor.

I'd like to meet

with a counselor.

You're looking at him.

What do you mean?

I'm the assigned counselor

for District 240.

I figure, hey, why not take

the bump on the paycheck.

Besides, I'm redoing

my kitchen.

Oh, um...

Don't worry.

I took the quiz.

I'm certified.

Well...

I feel very, um,

- Uh-huh.

And sometimes I get

these panic attacks where I...
