Margo Green:
What's that?



Lt. Vincent D'Agosta:
Good-luck bullet.



Margo Green:
I forgot, you're superstitious. So, does your bullet have a story?



Lt. Vincent D'Agosta:
I was on the beat my rookie year. One night I see this guy who's locked his keys in his car with his motor running. He's bent over the car, trying to unlock the door with a coat hanger. So I go over, try to help him out, and what I didn't know was that he'd just robbed the liquor store ten blocks down. And he doesn't notice me until I'm right on top of him. He turns around...


[makes a gun with his finger and "pops" with his mouth]



Lt. Vincent D'Agosta:
Point-blank range. Doesn't pop, though. Doesn't go off. This bullet.



Margo Green:
So what did you do?



Lt. Vincent D'Agosta:
Took the gun away from him and beat the shit out of him. Later, the forensics people tell me, uh, bullet's perfect. Should have fired. I should be dead.



Margo Green:
So, a miracle of physics?



Lt. Vincent D'Agosta:
Maybe just plain, old-fashioned good luck.
