Hey, what can I get you?


And for you?

I'll have a steak.


And how do you want that done?

Well done.

Well done.

And what two sides?

Coming right up, guys.



You come in here a lot,

don't you?


My name is Kathy, by the way.


My name is Kathy.

Oh, that's a very nice name.

I like my sister's name better.


It just sort of flows.

There's this poem I remember

from high school about this guy.

He would dream

about his long-lost Eleanor.

Do you like movies?

Uh, I do.

I thought I'd go and see the

new Jack Nicholson film.

You know, the one

that's up for all the Oscars.

And, um, it's playing at the Rivoli,

and I just thought...

If you're not doing anything

Saturday night...

Um, maybe you could,

you know...

This Saturday?


Oh, uh...

Jeez, I wish I could.

Um... I just can't.

Um, I have something panned.

Sure you do.

Wait, maybe some other time.

Just forget about it, okay?

Forget about it!

Don't take this

the wrong way. I'm...

I'm sorry?

No. No!

It's lost Lenore

from The Raven.

Edgar Allan Poe's lost Lenore.

Not Eleanor.

Stupid b*tch!

What are you doing here?

- Get away from me!

- Stop it! Stop!

Stop! Please! Stop!

Stop! Stop!

Somebody help!

Stop it! Stop it!

Get off me! Stop it!

Please let me go.


Not so smart now, are you...


But you are... beautiful.

Hi, Mom.

Hello, sweetie.

I'm just calling to see how

you are getting along.

Mom, I can't really talk...

...right now.

I gotta get up for work.

Well, don't forget to ask

for that raise.

I will.

I promise I'll ask

about it today.

Because I can't keep

supplementing your income.

I'll talk to you later, okay?

Make sure you do.

Okay, bye.

Bye, sweetie.


Oh! Hey, Wendy.

How's it going?

Good. Off somewhere nice?

Ah, Vancouver,

but it's probably raining up there.

Oh, at least you get to travel.

All I see is my computer screen.

Oh, I get to go to Florida next

week with a two-day layover.

Nice. I hope you

come back with a tan.

Oh, there's our ride.

See ya! Bye.

Jason, here you go.

Hi, uh, Mr. Cashman.

Here's that report that you asked for.

Thank you, Wendy.

Looks like a fine job.


Um, I was wondering if, um...

Well, I would

like to know, um...

You know you're busy...

Okay, whenever you wish, Wendy.

Communications department.

Communicate with me.

Hey, Jeffrey.

Hello, dollface.

Please don't call me that.

You know you like it.

Come on.

You're doing anything

tomorrow night?


Good. How about dinner then?

00 at the Embassy?

Oh, that's that, uh,

jazz place, right?

Hey, I gotta go.

I'll see you there then?

Okay, I'll see you there.


Lucille Carlton goes jogging every

morning with Elizabeth Osborne.

Today at 5:

she came by.

The door was open, light on.

She took a peek and ran

home and called 911.

She believes the deceased is

Elizabeth Osborne.

None of these can be linked to our killer.

But the MOs are similar.

All were sexually abused

after they were murdered.

But our tech guys did find some gray

hairs and semen in the genitalia,

establishing our killer's

blood type as AB positive.

This just came in for you, sir.

You better hear it.

I hope you enjoy

the performance, Lieutenant Delgado.

I found it exquisite.


Don't hurt me.

Take anything you want.

We've got a lot

of nice things here.

Watch... Jewelry...

Please don't hurt me

and my baby.

I know you're much more powerful than me.

You frighten me.

And I have another baby coming.

You wouldn't want

to hurt a baby, would you?
