I can hear your heart beating.

Sounds like a little animal

in your chest trying to get out.

Sounds like blood.

Sounds like flesh.


Most of all, it sounds like love.

- What's this?

- Well...

What is this?

- It's my gun.

- Your gun?

Don't hurt me.

Give me your hand, Culter.

- Get on your knees. Get up, Culter.

- I'm trying to.

- Jess, I'm here.

- I've got Culter.

Wilson, I need backup.

23 Ralston, the old Battery.

10-4. Backup units rolling.

I got your back, Jess.

- Get on your knees.

- I'm on my f***ing knees.

- Get up.

- I'm up. I'm up.

- Hold him there, Jessica.

- Come on.

Come on.

Oh, yeah. One more thing.

- Hey, Shepard.

- What?

Do that thing again.

Do it! Do it! Do it! Do it! Do it!

Do it! Do it! Do it...

Inspector Shepard, Homicide.


Who wants a beer?

- I do.

- I second that.

- Another round, Peter.

- You got it.

- All right, big guys.

- Pass them down, boys.

Thanks for being

on the phone, Wilson.

You and me?

You and me are like this.

You're drunk.

No, seriously, serious,

serious, serious.

Look, just because you're

moving up to Homicide,

don't take me off

your speed dial, OK?

No, no, no. I mean,

any time you press that button,

any time you push that button,

I'll be there to pick up.


- I'm gonna miss you.

- Here's to you.

OK. Don't forget about me.

Give me some.

I'll miss you too, Wilson.

Look, I'm telling you,

these Homicide guys, they're mental.

And they get turned on

by f***ing corpses, remember that.

Now, that's interesting.

What the f*** is this,

the peanut gallery?

Shot of rye, please.

I was just wondering, do you mean

they're turned on by f***ing corpses,

- or by f***ing corpses?

- God.

- Mind your business.

- A lot of beers here.

Let's spread them around.

Another shot of Jack, please, Pete.


Oh, nothing.

Oh, I was just thinking

how awkward you look...

...even though you are a cop.

What precinct?

Have it your way, stranger.

- Congratulations, inspector.

- Hey.

Hey, sexy. Come on, let's dance.

- You wanna dance?

- You gonna be cool, Jimmy?

What do you mean,

am I gonna be cool?

Like I'm here to fight with you

or something?

Hey, he made it!

- Hello, commissioner.

- Hi.

- How you doing?

- Hey, how you doing?

Back up, boys,

you're breathing my air.

- Hey, look who showed up.

- Good to see you.

- What's up, commissioner?

- Hey.

Leo, how you doing?

If my mentor were

police commissioner,

I think I'd be getting a promotion too.

You know what I mean?

- Yeah, is that right?

- Yeah.

I got ears like a cat, son.

So let's see what we can do

about getting you that promotion.

Test. There's a man sitting

at the end of the bar,

looks like he's been sitting there

for a while.

I want you to describe him.

And I want details.

Well, you know what? I'm just here

to have a good time, man. That's it.

Oh, so talking to me is not

your idea of a good time?

Or is it that you just can't do it?

- I could do it.

- OK, so go ahead,

get yourself a promotion.

Look at me.

He's a white guy.


He's got, I don't know,

a dark sports jacket. I don't know.

- You know what? I'm off duty, man.

- Yeah, I know.



White male, late 40s, 6 foot, 200

pounds, thinning gray hair, glasses.

He's wearing two gold chains

with some sort of medallion.

He's drinking shots and paying cash.

And that's why she's an inspector,

and you're not.

The good inspector's never off duty.

My office.

Inspector Shepard.

Making an old man proud.


- You pass the written?

- Yeah, of course. How could I not?

- Trained by the master.
