Babe Lazich:
[as they enter, the moving camera is from Babe's POV] It was a big day for me. They'd seen me in the neighborhood, and now they were sending for me, but I wondered why Duke was taking me to Olga's. I was sure excited because I was finally getting in with the real boys.



James Malloy:
[to someone behind the door] It's me - Duke.



Babe Lazich:
Back room was just like what you'd expect at the back of a store.


[the camera pans from face to face]

Capt. Frank Nelson:
What's wrong with the law that we can't touch him


[Mendoza, boss of murder ring]



Capt. Frank Nelson:
? Oh, I know, our kind of laws are designed to protect the innocent. It's not enough we know a man is guilty - we have to prove it.



D.A. Martin Ferguson:
Ever have a tune running through your head and you can't remember the words?



Capt. Frank Nelson:
What are you getting at?



D.A. Martin Ferguson:
How many people did we speak to on this case?



Capt. Frank Nelson:
Oh, I'd hate to remember.



D.A. Martin Ferguson:
How many pages of testimony do you suppose we took?



Capt. Frank Nelson:
Enough to fill a nice-sized room!



D.A. Martin Ferguson:
Heh, somewhere's in that testimony somebody said something that stuck in my brain. It got lost in the shuffle, because we didn't need it - we got Rico! But now...


[pause]



D.A. Martin Ferguson:
If I could only remember...


[Another pause]



D.A. Martin Ferguson:
Well, we got nothing else to do tonight - let's try and dig it out.



Capt. Frank Nelson:
[Nelson & Ferguson enter Ferguson's office] Well, we can start from right to left or from left to right.



D.A. Martin Ferguson:
No, let's take it just as it came to us, right from that first crazy day.


[They pull out 1st folder: "State vs. Albert Mendoza." Dissolve to Bell St. Station and beginning of long flashback]
