Script for unmade Officers 2: The Sequel

There was much disagreement on how the sequel to Officers should play out.  Due to the differences there was a halt during the preproduction phase.  For all you Officers fans out there I figured I would post the script that was written for the planned sequel in hopes to generate some hype and interest in making an Officers 2.  Some words have been censored.

Officers 2: The Sequel
Written by
Joseph Ammendolea 
& Dave Rerecich

Scene 1
INT. FRANK’S HOUSE. DAY.
CHRISTINE is cleaning her house when she hears a noise coming from the bedroom.  She walks into the room. She screams.

EXT. HOUSE. DAY.

Scene 2
INT. STATION
DETECTIVE BELLEROSE and CAPTAIN FLORAL PARK are sitting literally doing nothing.  There are two phones.  They both ring simultaneously. 

SOUND. PHONE RING

DETECTIVE BELLEROSE and CAPTAIN FLORAL PARK answer simultaneously.

                                                            DETECTIVE BELLEROSE
                                                            CAPTAIN FLORAL PARK
                                                (Simultaneously)
Yes....  Sure, hold on.

They hand their respective receivers to each other.

DETECTIVE BELLEROSE
                                                            CAPTAIN FLORAL PARK
(Simultaneously)
We're on our way.

They put their handed off receivers into the potted plant and resume staring into space for like ten seconds.  Actually, on second thought, don't do any of the above.  It's too silly.  The pair exit.

OPENING CREDITS ROLL.

Scene 3
INT. FRANK’S HOUSE. DAY.
DETECTIVE BELLEROSE and CAPTAIN FLORAL PARK are in the living room talking with CHRISTINE. 

                                                            CHRISTINE
                                    I walked into the room and found him lying there dead.

                                                            DETECTIVE BELLEROSE
                                    How can you be so sure he's dead?

                                                            CHRISTINE
                                    I asked him if he was alive and he said “no”. 

                                                            CAPTAIN FLORAL PARK
                                    Oooh you've been here before haven't you?                             

                                                            DETECTIVE BELLEROSE
                                    What troubles me is, not only is there no body, but there's 
                                     also no mention of any tea....

DETECTIVE BELLEROSE & CAPTAIN FLORAL PARK look at Christine for a few seconds....

                                                            CHRISTINE
                                    Oh... did you want some tea detectives?

                                                            CAPTAIN
                                                (Correcting, and pointing)
Captain, Detective

                                                            CHRISTINE
                                                (Quizzical)
Sorry... Captain.... Detective...

                                                            DETECTIVE BELLEROSE
                                    Just go get the damn tea, Sweet Tart.

CHRISTINE leaves to go get the tea

                                                            CAPTAIN FLORAL PARK
That was some real initiative you showed there Bellerose.  I'm promoting you to Admiral after this case is done.

                                                            DETECTIVE BELLEROSE
                                    Looking forward to it Captain.  Now what to make of this 
                                    case.  I think....

                                                            CAPTAIN FLORAL PARK
                                                (Interrupting)
Sush!  Baby's sleeping.

CHRISTINE walks back in with the tea.

CAPTAIN FLORAL PARK                           
(Loudly)
Mrs. A where is the baby!?      

DETECTIVE BELLEROSE
                                    ...they don't have a baby!                     

CAPTAIN FLORAL PARK                           
Where is the body?      

                                                            CHRISTINE
                                    I thought you guys cleaned it up....
                                                           
CAPTAIN FLORAL PARK strokes his chin all detective-like to indicate that he is thinking, but he also has an itchy chin.

Scene 4
EXT. FRANK’S HOUSE. DAY.
DETECTIVE BELLEROSE & CAPTAIN FLORAL PARK exit the house.

                                                            DETECTIVE BELLEROSE
                                    Captain Floral Park how are we going to solve this case when all the                                         evidence is gone?

                                                            CAPTAIN FLORAL PARK
                                    The old fashion way Detective Bellerose.
                                                (Pause).
                                    Out sourcing.

Scene 5
EXT. PRIVATE INVESTIGATOR GLEN OAK’S HOUSE. DAY.
CAPTAIN FLORAL PARK & DETECTIVE BELLEROSE walk up to the house and ring the bell. 

                                                            DETECTIVE BELLEROSE
                                    Isn’t this Sheworthy’s house?

                                                            CAPTAIN FLORAL PARK
                                    No I think it was Jeffina’s house.

                                                            DETECTIVE BELLEROSE
No, it turned out that wasn’t Jeffina.  It was Sheworthy pretending to be Jeffina in order to throw us off the trail of Christopher Elworthy. 

                                                            CAPTAIN FLORAL PARK
                                    Then who as the girl we spoke to behind the Disney Store. 

                                                            DETECTIVE BELLEROSE
                                    My future Ex-Wife.

                                                            CAPTAIN FLORAL PARK
                                    Oh look the door is open.

CAPTAIN FLORAL PARK & DETECTIVE BELLEROSE open the door and enter.

Scene 6

PRIVATE INVESTIGATOR GLEN OAKS is sitting down reading the newspaper when CAPTAIN FLORAL PARK & DETECTIVE BELLEROSE walk in the room.  CAPTAIN FLORAL PARK walks up to the private eye are glares at him. 

                                                            GLEN OAKS
                                    Can I help you?

CAPTAIN FLORAL PARK exits the room.

                                                            DETECTIVE BELLEROSE.
                                    We’ll be right back?

DETECTIVE BELLEROSE exits the room.

Scene 7
INT. HALLWAY. DAY. 
DETECTIVE BELLEROSE walks up to CAPTAIN FLORAL PARK. 

                                                            DETECTIVE BELLEROSE
                                    Flopa what’s wrong?

                                                            CAPTAIN FLORAL PARK
                                    Where did you find this guy?

                                                            DETECTIVE BELLEROSE
                                    He has an ad on craigslist. He seemed okay enough, 
                                    after all he is named after a local town just like us. 

                                                            CAPTAIN FLORAL PARK
                                    Just like us? Are you serious? He is nothing like us.   
                                    We are part of two counties one town, a Queens 
                                     Nassau hybrid.  He is 100% Queens.

                                                            DETECTIVE BELLEROSE
                                    He didn’t come off that way, but even if, there’s 
                                    nothing wrong with that.  I’m surprised at you.   
                                    Don’t you remember the lessons of
CENSORED?

                                                            CAPTAIN FLORAL PARK
                                    I’m not talking about that.

                                                            DETECTIVE BELLEROSE
                                    Then what are you talking about?

                                                            CAPTAIN FLORAL PARK
                                    We have a history, me and Private-Eye Glen Oaks.

CLOSE-UP. CAPTAIN FLORAL PARK.

                                                            CAPTAIN FLORAL PARK
                                    Oh excuse me.

                                                            GLEN OAKS
                                    That’s quite all right.

PI GLEN OAKS walks around CAPTAIN FLORAL PARK.  FLORAL PARK stands there angry.

                                                            CAPTAIN FLORAL PARK

                                                            GLEN OAKS
                                    Hello again.

                                                            DETECTIVE BELLEROSE
                                    Glen Oaks Private Eye, I’m Detective Bellerose 
                                    and this is my partner slash boss Captain Floral Park 
                                    of the FPBPD.

                                                            GLEN OAKS
                                    Nice to meet you both.  How can I help you today?

                                                            CAPTAIN FLORAL PARK
                                    Don’t play coy with me. 

                                                            GLEN OAKS
                                    Excuse me?

                                                            CAPTAIN FLORAL PARK
                                    Don’t act like we haven’t met before.

                                                            GLEN OAKS
                                    Do I know you?

                                                            CAPTAIN FLORAL PARK
                                    You smug son of a...

                                                            DETECTIVE BELLEROSE
                                    Flopa calm down, I’ll handles this. Sorry Mr. Oaks my 
                                    partner is under a bit of stress as of late. 

                                                            GLEN OAKS
                                    Please call me Glen.  Perhaps you should get him a 
                                    Zanex and some Coca Cola.

                                                            CAPTAIN FLORAL PARK
                                    Do I look like an agitated chimp to you?

                                                            GLEN OAKS
                                    You look like a hairy Cuban who shaves his ass.

CAPTAIN FLORAL PARK reaches for his gun, DETECTIVE BELLEROSE reaches his arm out and restrains him.

                                                            DETECTIVE BELLEROSE
                                    We’re here because we need your help on a case 
                                    we’re working on.  Frank Aaaaaaaaaa has been 
                                    murdered. 

                                                            GLEN OAKS
                                    Who’s Frank Aaaaaaaaaa.

                                                            CAPTAIN FLORAL PARK
                                    A young republican.

                                                            GLEN OAKS
                                    So you think it was politically motivated?

                                                            DETECTIVE BELLEROSE
                                    What? No, that’s just who he is.

                                                            GLEN OAKS
                                    How old was he?

                                                            DETECTIVE BELLEROSE
                                    34.

                                                            GLEN OAKS
                                    That’s not young

                                                            DETECTIVE BELLEROSE
                                    Well it sure isn’t old.

                                                            CAPTAIN FLORAL PARK
                                    And it ain’t middle aged.

                                                            GLEN OAKS
                                    What do you need me for?

                                                            CAPTAIN FLORAL PARK
                                    Truth be told, or perhaps false be lied.  The evidence 
                                    was destroyed, even the body is missing.  In fact we 
                                    have no proof a crime was even committed.  For all 
                                    we know it’s the ramblings of a crazy woman on the                                      
                                    rag and Frank was just sleeping and woke up an left 
                                    for work. 

                                                            DETECTIVE BELLEROSE
                                    We need you to help us reconstruct the crime scene. 

                                                            GLEN OAKS
                                    Where do I even start with something like that?

                                                            CAPTAIN FLORAL PARK
                                    Lay down and take a nap and then we’ll murder 
                                    you in different ways and see which one is the most 
                                    plausible. 

                                                            GLEN OAKS
                                    That sounds like a terrible idea and I want nothing to do with it.

                                                            DETECTIVE BELLEROSE
                                    What do you propose we do then?

                                                            GLEN OAKS
                                    Well you said he was a young republican, perhaps 
                                     he had some political connections.  Maybe you two 
                                     should try talking to the mayor.  While you
                                     guys are doing that I’ll stay here try to work 
                                     out some type of crime scenario.  Do you have 
                                     the case file?

                                                            DETECTIVE BELLEROSE
                                    A case file? That’s a great idea.

                                                            CAPTAIN FLORAL PARK
                                    Yeah, we should open files on the cases we work.

                                                            GLEN OAKS
                                    Right, I’m going to need cash up front.

                                                            CAPTAIN FLORAL PARK
                                    You will receive nothing and like it.

                                                            GLEN OAKS
                                    No I am going to need to be paid for this. 

                                                            CAPTAIN FLORAL PARK
                                    I will pay you with love.

                                                            GLEN OAKS
While love is nice, I really need money to pay the rent, eat and clothe myself.

                                                            CAPTAIN FLORAL PARK
                                    Very well, Bellerose pay the man from the petty cash.

                                                            DETECTIVE BELLEROSE
                                    Aww but Flopa we were going to go and spend it at the 
                                    track later.

                                                            CAPTAIN FLORAL PARK
                                                (Mockingly)
                                    Not anymore.  Private-Eye Glen Oaks needs to make a living.

Scene 11
INT. POLICE PRECINCT. DAY.
(Note: This scene can be filmed in several locations, either outdoors, indoors, anywhere available).
CAPTAIN FLORAL PARK & DETECTIVE BELLEROSE are lounging in the precinct.  MAYOR FRANKLIN SQUARE enters.

                                                            CAPTAIN FLORAL PARK
                                                (Salutes)
                                    Thank you for coming Mayor Franklin Square.

                                                            MAYOR FRANKLIN SQUARE
                                    Thank you for having me Captain. 

                                                            DETECTIVE BELLEROSE
                                                (High Five's)
                                    Mr. Mayor

                                                            MAYOR FRANKLIN SQUARE
                                    Detective, how are things with you?

                                                            DETECTIVE BELLEROSE
                                    Just fine sir. Today is no is yes day.

                                                            MAYOR FRANKLIN SQUARE
                                    So why did you guys call me down here?

                                                            DETECTIVE BELLEROSE
                                    Frank Aaaaaaaaaa has been murdered

                                                            MAYOR FRANKLIN SQUARE
                                    My word!

                                                            DETECTIVE BELLEROSE
                                    We were wondering if you could shed some light on the subject.

                                                            MAYOR FRANKLIN SQUARE
                                    I don’t seem to have anything on me.  I might have a flashlight
                                    in the car though.  Do you have a knife I could borrow? A 
                                    nail file would be ideal.

                                                            DETECTIVE BELLEROSE
                                    Did Frank have any enemies?

                                                            MAYOR FRANKLIN SQUARE
                                    Any enemies? He was a lawyer and a politician.

                                                            CAPTAIN FLORAL PARK
                                    So that’s a no?

                                                            MAYOR FRANKLIN SQUARE
                                    No, that’s a yes?

                                                            DETECTIVE BELLEROSE
                                    So that’s a no because no is yes. 

                                                            MAYOR FRANKLIN SQUARE
                                    No

                                                            CAPTAIN FLORAL PARK
                                    So he had no enemies

                                                            MAYOR FRANKLIN SQUARE
                                    Yes.

                                                            DETECTIVE BELLEROSE
                                    Yes he did or no he didn’t? I don’t know isn’t no yes?

                                                            MAYOR FRANKLIN SQUARE
                                    No, no is no

                                                            CAPTAIN FLORAL PARK
                                    If yes is no then no is no then what is yes?

                                                            MAYOR FRANKLIN SQUARE
                                     Listen let’s not make is a freaking Abbot and Costello bit. Frank 
                                     had a lot of enemies.

                                                            DETECTIVE BELLEROSE
                                    Why kind of enemies?

                                                            CAPTAIN FLORAL PARK
                                    The kind that would want to kill him?

                                                            MAYOR FRANKLIN SQUARE
                                    Maybe.  Frank was an odd duck.  I met him when 
                                    he was 14 he was walking down the street listening 
                                    to an AM radio station on his Walkman.

                                                            DETECTIVE BELLEROSE
                                    What’s so strange about that?

                                                            MAYOR FRANKLIN SQUARE
                                    It was Bob Grant.  What 14 year old boy listens to conservative 
                                    talk radio?

                                                            CAPTAIN FLORAL PARK
                                    The dead kind.

                                                            MAYOR FRANKLIN SQUARE
                                    Well I got to talking to Frank about this and that, 
                                    mostly this and only some of that.  He told me he wanted 
                                    to go to hell when he died.  I assured him the best way to 
                                    do that is to become a lawyer and a politician.  He agreed.

                                                            CAPTAIN FLORAL PARK
                                    Well he’s certainly rotting in hell now, the evil hell where you 
                                    are in a theater with a bunch of 16 year old girls who are texting 
                                    and talking on their cell phones while watching the twilight 
                                    movies and screaming loudly every time a pretty pretty man 
                                    shows his hot, sweaty, sexy, sultry, luscious body on the 
                                    screen. Ohh so sexy and so dirty.
                                                (Pause)

                                                            MAYOR FRANKLIN SQUARE
Anyway as Frank grew up he became more fanatic about his 
political beliefs.  But he appeared to be in constant conflict with 
himself.  His own brother had called the police on him on three 
separate occasions for disturbing that peace.  He was watching 
C-Span late at night screaming in anger like it was a sporting 
event or something.  
While there was that deep rooted conservatism in him, there 
was also a wild streak in him.  A party animal.  In 
fact on one occasion Frank proceeded to drink to his hearts 
content, then, while passing a local diner he pulled down 
his pants and mooned a couple of old ladies who were 
enjoying their tea 
and crumpets. 

                                                            DETECTIVE BELLEROSE
                                    That’s crazy! Who eats tea and crumpets in this day and age?

                                                            CAPTAIN FLORAL PARK
                                    So who killed Frank?

                                                            MAYOR FRANKLIN SQUARE
It could be anyone.  He had at least 4 enemies the three old 
ladies in the diner and the homeless person who Frank declined 
a proposition for CENSORED from this was after he showed 
his ass to the ladies. 


                                                            DETECTIVE BELLEROSE
                                    What about political enemies? 

                                                            MAYOR FRANKLIN SQUARE
                                    No, he had them all killed a few months back. 

                                                            CAPTAIN FLORAL PARK
                                    That sounds like a serious crime.

                                                            DETECTIVE BELLEROSE
                                    I guess it would fall under indecent exposure.  But the statute of                                     limitations has run out on it. 

                                                            CAPTAIN FLORAL PARK
                                    I could really go for some tea and crumpets actually.

                                                            DETECTIVE BELLEROSE
                                    Relic!

                                                            MAYOR FRANKLIN SQUARE
                                    Well I must get going.  If you need anymore help please don’t 
                                    call me because you’re both incompetent assholes and if I had 
                                    my way I’d have you both fired.

                                                            DETECTIVE BELLEROSE
                                    Well it’s a good thing it’s not up to you Mayor Franklin Square.   
                                     It’s up to the voters.

                                                            CAPTAIN FLORAL PARK
                                    And a grant from the Helena Rubenstein foundation.

                                                            DETECTIVE BELLEROSE
                                                (Breaks Fourth Wall)
                                    And viewers like you.

                                                            MAYOR FRANKLIN SQUARE
                                    What are you pointing at?

                                                            DETECTIVE BELLEROSE
                                    Nothing, just get out of here.

                                                            CAPTAIN FLORAL PARK
                                    And we’ll call you if and when we feel like it.

Scene 12
INT. GLEN OAKS’ OFFICE. NIGHT.
PI GLEN OAKS is constructing a Lego model of a bedroom and house when CAPTAIN FLORAL PARK and DETECTIVE BELLEROSE enter.

                                                            GLEN OAKS
                                    Oh great, you are back. 

                                                            CAPTAIN FLORAL PARK
                                    What have you got for us?

                                                            DETECTIVE BELLEROSE
                                    Besides a migraine I have reconstructed the crime 
                                    scene.  Using these Legos.

                                                            CAPTAIN FLORAL PARK
                                    Lego my ego!

CAPTAIN FLORAL PARK and DETECTIVE BELLEROSE begin to laugh hysterically PI GLEN OAKS stares at them with a blank face.  CAPTAIN FLORAL PARK and DETECTIVE BELLEROSE slowly stop laughing.  There is an uncomfortable silence.

                                                            DETECTIVE BELLEROSE
                                    What have you found out?

                                                            GLEN OAKS
                                    Based on the information presented to me from 
                                    your notes and my own investigative work from 
                                    speaking to the alleged victim’s spouse, I traced 
back Frank’s timeline from the evening before 
until the morning when he turned up missing. 

Scene 13
INSERT. LEGO ROOM.
                                                            NARRATION. GLEN OAKS
I determined Frank Aaaaaaaaaa was sleeping between the hours of 1 AM and 10 AM

                                                            DETECTIVE BELLEROSE
                                    A full eight hours.

                                                            NARRATION. GLEN OAKS
At about 10:24 am the wife heard a noise and went 
into the room.  It turns out the noise she heard was 
an alarm clock blaring.  She immediately turned it off.   
To her horror she discovered an unmade bed at that 
moment neighbors reported hearing a loud scream.   
The FPBPD wasn’t called in until noon, an hour and a 
half after the scream.  By the time you arrived the “crime 
scene” was cleaned up.  But there wasn’t actually anything 
to clean up.  The wife just made the bed and turned the 
alarm off.  By all accounts Frank woke up probably hit 
the snooze, within that time got ready and left for work, 
completely forgetting the alarm was going to ring again.   
The wife heard the alarm walked into the room saw the 
unmade bed and pajamas strewn across the floor had a 
scream attack.  She cleaned the room and passed out 
and woke up moments later thinking her husband was 
dead, when she really was just hoping.  That’s when you 
guys received the call.

BACK TO SCENE
Scene 14
INT. GLEN OAKS’ OFFICE. NIGHT.
PI GLEN OAKS, CAPTAIN FLORAL PARK and DETECTIVE BELLEROSE are in the office.


                                                            DETECTIVE BELLEROSE
                                    So you saying the wife did it.

                                                            GLEN OAKS
                                    No, you idiot! 

                                                            CAPTAIN FLORAL PARK
                                    The Mayor?

                                                            GLEN OAKS
                                    No!

                                                            DETECTIVE BELLEROSE
                                    Well if it’s not the wife and not the mayor who could it be? 
                                    We’ve only dealt with three people regarding this case.

                                                            CAPTAIN FLORAL PARK
                                    I got it, I have figured it out.

                                                            DETECTIVE BELLEROSE
                                    You have? You solved the case? Who did it?

                                                            CAPTAIN FLORAL PARK
                                    Private-Eye Glen Oaks.

                                                            GLEN OAKS
                                                (Exhausted)
                                    It wasn’t me.

                                                            CAPTAIN FLORAL PARK
                                    Detective Bellerose?

                                                            DETECTIVE BELLEROSE
                                    Captain Floral Park?

                                                            GLEN OAKS
                                    You’re both morons.  He isn’t dead.  He was just at work.

                                                            CAPTAIN FLORAL PARK
                                    Can you prove any of this?

                                                            GLEN OAKS
                                    Yes.  If we go to his house right now we’ll get there just in 
                                     time to meet him as he gets home from work.

Scene 15
INT. FRANK’S HOUSE. NIGHT.
CAPTAIN FLORAL PARK, DETECTIVE BELLEROSE, and PI GLEN OAKS are talking with CHRISTINE.

                                                            CAPTAIN FLORAL PARK
                                    We have solved the murder. 

                                                            DETECTIVE BELLEROSE
                                    After diligent investigative work on our part we 
                                    determined that the murderer was....

                                                            CAPTAIN FLORAL PARK
                                    Chris Elworthy. 

                                                            DETECTIVE BELLEROSE
                                    Woah,wait I thought it was a suicide.

                                                            CHRISTINE
                                    Chris Elworthy killed himself?

                                                            GLEN OAKS
                                    I am trapped in a world of idiots. 

                                                            CHRISTINE
                                    I am no idiot.  I’m a woman.

                                                            GLEN OAKS
                                    I’m sorry, I stand corrected I am stuck with two idiots 
                                    and a bad driver. Frank isn’t dead, he just went to work. 
                                    He should be home any minute.

FRANK AAAAAAAAAA walks in the door that that moment. 

                                                            FRANK
                                    Honey I’m home.  Did you miss me?

CHRISTINE runs over to him and hugs him.

                                                            CHRISTINE
                                    Oh honey you’re alive.  I’m so glad.

FRANK look around the room and sees CAPTAIN FLORAL PARK, DETECTIVE BELLEROSE, and PI GLEN OAKS.

                                                            FRANK
Hi Captain Floral Park, Detective Bellerose, and random 
agitated guy who.  What are you doing here?

                                                            DETECTIVE BELLEROSE
                                    Investigating your murder. 

                                                            FRANK
                                    Oh, how's that going?

                                                            DETECTIVE BELLEROSE
                                    Pretty well, in fact the case has just been closed.  We 
                                    determined you died of SIDS. 

                                                            FRANK
                                   How could I have died from sudden infant death syndrome 
                                   when I am 34 and still alive?

                                                            DETECTIVE BELLEROSE
                                    I’m a detective not a doctor

                                                            CAPTAIN FLORAL PARK
                                    I’m a captain not a coroner.

                                                            GLEN OAKS
                                    I knew you were fine.

                                                            CAPTAIN FLORAL PARK
I have determined no crime has been committed, since the 
case is solved it’s time to get going. 

                                                            FRANK
                                    Thanks for coming by guys.

                                                            CHRISTINE
                                    Yes, thanks for all your help.

                                                            FRANK
It was especially great seeing you again Detective Bellerose.   
The last time we spoke I had shot and killed that weird dude.

                                                            CAPTAIN FLORAL PARK
                                    Then I had CENSORED with his corpse when it was in 
                                    the morgue.

                                                            DETECTIVE BELLEROSE
                                    Ahh fun times they were, fun times.

Scene 16
INT. POLICE PRECINCT. NIGHT.
CAPTAIN FLORAL PARK, DETECTIVE BELLEROSE, and PI GLEN OAKS are talking.

                                                            DETECTIVE BELLEROSE
                                    Well that was a doozy of a case. 

                                                            CAPTAIN FLORAL PARK
                                    It sure was.
                                    And now it’s time to pay Private-Eye Glen Oaks.

CAPTAIN FLORAL PARK pulls out a wad of money and begins count it out.

                                                            DETECTIVE BELLEROSE
                                    Wow that’s a lot of money, it pays to be crooked.

                                                            CAPTAIN FLORAL PARK
                                    You know something Glen, I was wrong about you. The 
                                    force can use a man of your intellect.  We might need to call 
                                    on you again for those tougher cases. 

                                                            DETECTIVE BELLEROSE
                                    Yes, there have been reports of teenage battles breaking out 
                                    throughout the town.  We sure could use your help stopping it.

                                                            GLEN OAKS
                                    I tell you what.  How about we wave the fee and in return 
                                    you never call me again for any help whatsoever.   
                                    We have a deal?

                                                            CAPTAIN FLORAL PARK
                                    That sounds fair to me.

                                                            GLEN OAKS
Great!  It was terrible working with you and I hope I never 
see either of you again.

                                                            DETECTIVE BELLEROSE
                                    Ditto.

GLEN OAKS exits.

                                                            CAPTAIN FLORAL PARK
                                                (Whispers)
                                    You’re excused Glen, you’re excused.

                                                            DETECTIVE BELLEROSE
                                    I miss that whiny bastard already.

                                                            CAPTAIN FLORAL PARK
                                    Me too, let’s stop by and visit him tomorrow.

                                                            DETECTIVE BELLEROSE
                                    I thought we could never call him again.

                                                            CAPTAIN FLORAL PARK
                                    Yes he said never call and call we won’t, but he never said 
                                    anything about stopping by in person.

                                                            DETECTIVE BELLEROSE
                                    Oh zing, touch√©, and quid pro quo!
