(glasses clink) what's he got in his hand? is that macram\? who you going to see? pony fues. you escorting him to san quentin for the execution? no. ausa brickle. pony finally decide to rat? it's funny how death will make a man want to clear his conscience. doesn't sound like pony. pony fues has never cooperated until now. yeah, well, how do you know he is cooperating? how do you know he's not? this guy was a hit man for all the mobs,
10:02 pm
he's got hard-core information on all of them. yeah, or he's just playing us. i mean, the guy's got six days to live, right? exactly. nothing to lose. he might as well come clean. yeah, well, that's what we might do, but i'm saying a guy like this wants something, and i'm not cutting some hired gun any slack. this way. where's he at? shu prisoners are not allowed human contact. you'll interview him like this. brkle: can he hear us? yeah, i can hear you. what, but he can't see us? no. hardly seems fair, right? yeah, go figure. mr. fues, i'm ausa brickle withthe department of justice. with me is special agent don eppes of the fbi. i understand you're interested in cooperating with us on several unsolved murders. check it out, man, i ain't no rat. is that right? first of all, let's get that straight. uh, i'm only going to talk to you all about what i myself have done. okay. how many? well, i'll give you all five bodies so those families can get some peace. so they can bury their dead properly. yeah, how do we know you're not just taking credit
10:03 pm

10:04 pm
what if he has to give us a body to prove good faith. you think he'd go for that? so, what y're saying just to clear one case? yeah, take it one step at a time, (phone rings) see where it goes. i don't know. all right, let me take a shot at this. all right. hey, what's up, man? it's me. epps? so, larry's back, we saw him land this morning. ah, cool. yeah, i haven't gotten him excellent. on the phone yet, but i'm thinking of throwing him a welcome home dinner when he shows, you want to come by? uh, i don't know, buddy, i got a problem here. what's the problem? well, we just got this death row guy who's trying to talk me into getting him off site, but i don't know. i think we're being set up. well, to do that... wouldn't he have to colle with someone on the outside? yeah, well, i mean these guys are faster than the post office getting info in and out. yeah but, you know, the prison is designed with obstacles to his communication. look, i can perform a vulnerability analysis on the prison system... wait, i gotta call you back. (dial tone) he's giving us benny wong. the chinese gang leader.
10:05 pm
bullet hole in the cranium. don, we found the body right where fues said. one shot to the skull. look at that. looks like wong's jacket. bullet hole right here in the chest. i tapped benny once in the head, once in the chest. he had on a... black and red leather coat. tough guy, benny, very, very bad taste in clothing, though. uh... i got four more for you all, but i got one that i know you're really gonnlike. 'cause it's a big one. what's the big one, mr. fues? you remember that congressman's kid that went missing? randal amato's son? yeah. i know where that boy is. brickle: are you, are you telling me he's alive? i'm telling you...
10:06 pm
you do all this research on the perfect car. gas mileage, horse power, torque ratios... three spreadshts later, you finally bring home the one... then smash it into a tree. your insurance company is all too happy to raise your rates... maybe you should've done a little more research on them. for drivers with accident forgiveness, liberty mutual won't raise your rates due to your first accident. see car insurance in a whole new light. liberty mutual insurance. pure is big, bold and just better. pure is mccormick. the smallest pinch of pure mccormick can make meals legenda.
10:07 pm
the rich taste that pure can bring. because pure tastes better. i don't know why they make these barrettes so complicated for guys. my dad's giving me a dad-do. deangelo williams laughs. a dad-do comes from the heart. there's probably not a whole lot of style. who knows, i mean maybe there's a post-career here. grace watson giggles what you giggling about? i love you, dad. benjamin watson and grace watson laugh. you look in the mirror, who do you see? me. that's strong is beautiful. not having a good breakfast can make you feel like your day never started. get going with carnation breakfast essentials. with protein plus 21 vitamins and minerals, including calcium and vitamin d, to help your family be their best.
10:08 pm
good nutrition from the start. try our high protein drink with 50% more protein. feel a spark of emotion light up every inch of you. feel warm inside. feel our big beautiful candle. feel glade. sc johnson. mmmm mmmm....mmmm mmm
10:09 pm
mmmm mmmm, yoplait it was ten years ago, mafia, they tried to buy off freshman congressman randal amato-- he refused, they attempted to persuade him by taking his five-year-old son. yeah, yeah, i remember that. they could never prove murder, could never find the boy's body. now, i, i would love to hang this on phil berelli where it belongs. the guy's a shot caller. why, how's he get his hands dirty with this? ten ars ago he was an up and comer, and he bragged on a wiretap about teaching amato a lesson. yeah, and how does pony factor in? that's what i need to find out. i don't know, i got to tell you, i got a bad feeling about this guy. larry (on answering machine): greetings, gravity-bound homo sapiens. i am orbiting your lovely blue planet until the middle of earth year 2007. you may leave a message here or simply call out to the heavens. i will be listening. (beep) hey, larry, uh, so it's me again. i saw you set foot on terra firma, buddy.
10:10 pm
i'll come break you out-- whatever you need. just call me, okay? call me, all right? hey. hey. i want you to meet al brickle. he's ausa. this is my brother, charlie. oh, yeah and it's, it's alvin. good to meet you, your reputation proceeds you. oh, well... so... so, i, i, uh... i analyzed the secure housing unit at the prison. it's a hyper-secure system, but... prisoners have nothing to do except sit around and think about how to break it, right? right. nice suit there, ickle. nice face. it's like two opposing armies. where one army tries to get a spy past enemy lines. now, calculating the ratio of points of vulnerability versus resources required to defend those points determines probabilities of penetration. now, my model indicates that in this shu there are fewer than two percent of prisoners that can sustain illicit communications. now, that's three times less than at your average high-security prison. 98%, that's pretty good. maybe pony's on the up and up.
10:11 pm
that doesn't fit into my model. guards. and lawyers. that's the human factor. guards are squeaky clean, though. prison oversight on shu guards is much harsher than normal. what's the deal with pony's lawyer? no, he's been representing himself for the last two years. which is why he's riding the express train to execution. well, that means with over 90% assurance that he is not communicating with the outside world. colby: so we transport him here to meet his daughter... or not? i don't care what he did; he's my only father. you'd better care what he did. let's just take it easy. they're gonna kill him! do you know how many people he killed? lucy! damn it. (door slamming) i understand you don't want youraughter to see him. it's all she thinks about. the execution's on the news every day-- lethal injection or not, doctors present or not, will the governor stop it or not? he's requested a firing squad like gary gilmore. we don't do that in california, ma'am.
10:12 pm
i'm sorry, i don't mean that, i'm not like that. it's just watching my daughter go through this... i can't even imagine, mrs. fues. moreno. i went back to my maiden name when i divorced him. ms. moreno, has he been in touch with you or lucy, at all? through the mail... uh, telephone, maybe some old friends? no. he doesn't know where we are. can you give this to him? no, lucy, please. can you? i really think that's up to your mom. give him the photo, but i won't allow her to be in the same room with him. david: understood. (handcuffs jangling) you won't regret this. yeah.
10:13 pm
prisoner: good luck, pony. nice knowing ya. all right. prisoner 2: you getting the firing squad? hellnah, the needle. hey, shut up, all right? prisoner 3: why you leaving with the feds, fues? decided to rat, you wimp? no, i ain't no rat, pinhead bastard. he told you to shut up, man. i ain't no rat. oh, man. years. it's been years in that hole, man. pony, shut your mouth
10:14 pm
okay, okay, all right, boys. this is a nice day. where's my son? david: this is congressman randal amato. all right, i understand. i want to know where my son is! don: sir, just as soon as i know something, you'll be the first person i tell, all right? director's office okayed it. fues's ex-wife won't let the kid see him. well, this just keeps getting better and better, isn't it? the kid gave this for her dad, though. all right, well, just make sure he's all right.
10:15 pm
i am orbiting your lovely blue planet until the middle of earth year 2007. you may leave a message here or... hey. hey. hold him. so, what's up? , i may not be able to read this guy's mind, but i can offer you the best strategy in a confrontation like this. all right, what is it? tit for tat. say what? tit for tat-- it's the most winning strategy in game theory for the prisoner's dilemma. it dominates in every tournament against far more complex methods. let's say, you're in a race climbing a mountain against another climber. you can't scale the rock face alone, but you do want to be the first person to get to the top. your first move should be cooperative, then you mimic all your opponent actions. so, if he aggresses, you aggress; if he cooperates, so do you. so, if he attacks, and, and then cooperates, you're still supposed to cooperate? yeah, it's, totally counterintuitive, but forgiveness is necessary for the optimal result. what do you mean forgiveness? i mean people don't often forgive betrayal,
10:16 pm
so do you. that way, he learns that he gets more if he works with you. yeah, but, charlie, the guy's a sociopath; i can't trust him. well, that's, that's the beauty of it. you don't have to trust this guy. just mirror his actions. he gave me a body, i brought him here. so based on what you're saying, it's his turn? that's right, so let's see if he aggresses or if he cooperates. all right, i'll see what happens. how're you doing? everything all right? don: where's the congressman's son? i gave you benny wong on good faith. yeah, i took you out of the shu, so it's your turn. so i lay you out another body, do i get to see my kid? it depends how good your information is. i can give you jimmy morales. no, i want the kid. i don't trust you, man. the bottom line, i don't trust you 'cause you ain't gave me nothing. give me your word. all right, look, pony, here's the way it is.
10:17 pm
i promise you, i will cooperate with you. okay. you got to know i ain't want to do that to that kid. you know, belli just didn't have the nerves to do it. he was scaring the kid. i could just see it was going to be a mess. yeah, so? pony: i walked the kid down the hillside. i was talking to him about the man in the moon and when he looked up, i snapped his neck. yeah... he never felt a thing. where's this hillside? my wife and i have imagined the worst for ten years. nothing is wor than not knowing. hey, guys. this is not a child's body.
10:18 pm
(politely) wait, wait, wait! you can't put it in like that... have to rinse it first. that's baked-on alfredo. baked-on? it's never gonna work. dish issues? trust your dishwasher with cascade platinum. it powers... through... your toughest stuck-on food. better than finish. cascade. guys, amazing party. hey, thank you. is that the famous food critic milevon gaston? perfectly thin and crispy. freshly roasted chipotle peppers. um. delicious mild smokey taste. he knows this isn't a restaurant right? four stars for the chips the seice... not so much. new tostitos cantina chipotle thins deliciously authentic. tostitos. bring the party. i have asthma... of many pieces in my life. so when my asthma symptoms kept coming back on my long-term control medicine, i talked to my doctor and found a missing piece in my asthma treatment.
10:19 pm
breo is for adults with asthma not well controlled on a long-term asthma control medicine, like an inhaled corticosteroid. breo won't replace a rescue inhaler for sudden breathing problems. breo opens up airways to help improve breathing for a full 24 hours. breo contains a type of medicine that increases the risk of death from asthma problems and may increase the risk of hospitalization in children and adolescents. breo is not for people whose asthma is well controlled on a long-term asthma control medicine, like an inhaled corticosteroid. once your asthma is well controlled, your doctor will decide if you can stop breo and prescribe a different asthma control medicine, like an inhaled corticosteroid. do not take breo more than prescribed. see your doctor if your asthma does not improve or ge worse. ask your doctor if 24-hour breo could be a missing piece for you. see if you're eligible for
10:20 pm
look close, werther's is making sugar free caramels, classic hard and deliciously chewy. that are so smooth, rich andreamy you won't believe they're sugar free. discover werther's original sugar free. [ salesman ] congrats on the new car. [ woman ] thanks. the dealership reviews on made it easy, but... [ man ] we thought it might be a little more tense. you miss the drama? yeah. [ technician ] ask him whatever you want. okay. do you think my sister's prettier than me? elps you
10:21 pm
(sizzling, coughing) oh! charlie! oh, shoot! i'm sorry, are they ruined? i don't know. the smoke got in my eyes. are you all right? maybe we can save them. (both groaning) no. it looks like the petrified forest, huh? yeah. i put them on and then i got preoccupied with a problem in the garage. where is larry? so much for the celebration.
10:22 pm
i guess he's still being debriefed by nasa. i don't know why he can't call. don: hey. alan: hi. whoa, what's up? charlie was trying to barbecue, so, uh... we're going to have to order in now. thai food? i'll get the menus. charlie: don't even bother. grab the gas. thanks. barbecue ribs. not anymore. hey, are you sure about all this tit for tat stuff? teams have spent years trying to defeat it. even by cheating, yet it still remains the best way to achieve optimal results for both parties. you know, some theorists believe it gives insight to how groups of animals, how groups of humans, have come to live in largely cooperative societies. how about this: the gulied to us about where the kid was. right, so we find another body in its place. now how do you factor that in, aggression or cooperation? well, if he lied, that's aggression, you need to aggress on him. yeah, all right, well, that i can do. is that all you came by for? no, where's larry? he's not here yet. all right, well, i'm going to have to come back or i'll call you later, okay? okay. so we got the chi..
10:23 pm
oh! you lied! i'm sending you straight to san quentin and they're going to fill your veins with potassium chloride. you hear me?i did not lie... forget seeing your daughter! i did not lie! i don't know what happened. maybe somebody moved the body. who? berelli. he's the only one who knew where the kid was. we found a guy with gold teeth, not a five-year-old. well, you've got to dig deeper, man. give me your wrists. you've got to-- look, man. berelli could've stacked the body on top of the kid. uh-huh. ow! it's a good dumping ground. dig deeper. you make yourself comfortable. (growling) (angry grunt) sinclair. could you id him? yeah, we have a dna match. yeah, who? take a look. that's, that's lorenzo marcellus. yeah, marcellus, he was the west coast boss before berelli, right?
10:24 pm
by killing marcellus and taking his territory. how is pony connected? po would do a hit for the girl scouts as long as they had enough cookie money to pay him. berelli probably hired pony to grab the amato kid. all right, but what about marcellus? berelli did that one himself; at least that's what he said on tape. i've got a wall of rico files just on hi i cannot believe... i'm going to finally get this guy. this is huge. yeah? huge. morning. hey, anything? nope. here, i got you. all right, thanks. we dug all night. didn't find any other bodies. no evidence of reburying. i just don't think the amato kid was ever the. well, you know the guy you found was lorenzo marcellus. hmm. i just don't get why he lies about the kid, though. is it possible that he's still alive? maybe he was hired to kill him and couldn't go through with it? sent him away?
10:25 pm
i don't know, fues was a contract man, strictly professional, hired to hit the bad guys. maybe he just couldn't do the kid. yeah, i don't know. i have a court order for fues to take a polygraph. psst. charles. hey! larry! hey! hey! careful, listen, i've lost considerable bone density in space, so be careful. hey, why didn't you call? amita and i were going to come get you. no, no, i had a most pleasant bus ride from edwards. you took the bus? yeah, well, one can be silent aboard the bus. one can order food, get directions, make friends... i'll tell you, you know, language is in many ways superfluous. so how was it? how are you? and how was your lisa work? were you able to collect new data on gravitational pulls? i can understand if you can't tell me, i won't press. but larry, man, you were in outer space! looking out the porthole, seeing...
10:26 pm
looks like from out there? is it bigger? can you see the burn from the back? what is the difference in perspective on heavenly bodies and phenomena? is it negligible or is there that sense of, uh... of awe. "of awe," right, yeah. what is this? oh, this is an aztec quipu. "quipu"? quu, that's correct. okay. see, back in the glory days of tenochtitlan, these knots represted a code for commerce, and the buying and selling of jaguars and parrots and yuca. yuca. yes, ultimately it served a higher purpose in concealing secrets from the colonizing spaniards. but each braid, each knot-- each one of these tells a story. well, where'd you get it? nasa's so nosy. this was all in the pursuit of privacy. you made that? wow! what does it signify? ah, now charles, would you read my diary? oh, i'm sorry. i'm sorry. well, look, amita is dying to see you. millie wants to throw, like, a school-wide party for you. and i shld tell you that megan... no, no, no, no, no, no, no.

10:28 pm

(short siren blast) (tires screech) fbi, gentlemen. philip berelli, you're under arrest for the murder of lorenzo marcellus. again? don't pull that chain unless you want the whole dog. berelli: i'll be out in three hours. brickle: not this time, berelli. i have lorenzo, gold-capped teeth and all. what do you have to do with the amato child's disappearance? we have a lot to talk about, phil. relli: rat bastard fues. couldn't keep his mouth shut for four more days. guess he figured you can't hurt him if he's going to be dead by the middle of next week.
10:29 pm
what about this guy? this guy's... been through a lot. dogs bring out the good in us. pedigree brings out the good in them. feed the goo pepper discovers jimmy dean delights, made with real egg whites, lean cut meats, and whole grains. an excellent source of protein, it fuels her up with energy to help power through her morning. with jimmy dean delights, good mornings lead to great days. one crest 3d white smile... all it takes... turn the tables. crest 3d white toothpaste... ...removes 5 times more stains... ...than the red box. for a smile like that, crest 3d white... is the way to whiten. i would kill for something sweet. i know... we could have one of those.

10:32 pm
good morning. have you been out here all night? the sun rose every 90 minutes on the space station, charles. i find night to be exquisitely consoling back here on earth. you were going to wake me before you were ready to go, right? i'm just... i'm not ready for this, charles.. i'm not. not for any of it. larry... larry, this is crazy. this is nuts. you're staying at our house. look, after months of living in a metal capsule, the thought of confined spaces is simply intolerable to me. god, i don't know what's going on. i feel like i'm in some dream with the ghost larry, and i just want to wake up and talk to the real guy. well, perceptive, as always, charles. well, what... what's the matter, man? you can talk to me. come on. well, i suppose it's all there in the quipu,
10:33 pm

10:34 pm
(cell phone ringing) they need me at the fbi. come on. hey, spaceman, welcome back to earth. look at you, buddy. come here, give us some love. he just wants to keep a low profile. he was with me when you called, so..sounded urgent. i'm sorry. absolutely. yeah. come on. i got don following an equivalent retaliation protocol. oh, yeah, tit for tat, h? yeah. its inventor anatol rappaport just passed away. i read his obit online in space. that's the guy. and he passed his poly. polygraph is a blunt instrument. right. exactly. so... hey. how are you? can i see you for one second? don: yeah, i'll be right there. what's up? fues is agitated. he wants to see his daughter. nuh-uh, not until he gives us that boy, no way. right, right. listen, i was thinking maybe i could take another run at the ex-wife. yeah? if we have the girl, we have more leverage.
10:35 pm
he's been there before. all right, all right. don: i thought you wanted to see your kid? you're damn right. i gave you everything you asked for. no, you faked out a polygraph test, that's all you did. you gave me your word. now, what more do you want from me? don: i want the truth. pony: i told you the truth! yeah, well, the body wasn't there! you lied to me! i'm tired of this! (knocking) guy's a liar. he should have his head cracked! you're awfully emotional. yeah, you bet. look, you're in a death spiral, all right? it's what we call a grim trigger strategy. mm-hmm. all right, he lied, you're never gonna forgive him, that's it, that's game over. yeah, fine, good, game over. can i tell you the best way to get out of a negative spiral? tifor two tats. are you kidding me? no. you cooperate twice in a row, despite his defection, you give him something he wants. you're at a dead end, man.
10:36 pm
yeah, all right. turn it over. thank you. where's that boy, pony? i told you all i know. david: brickle, this woman doesot want her daughter in the same room with fues, okay? she's made that abundantly clear. if it means he confesses more murder, she may be persuaded. i just want to talk to her. what name's she using now? rene moreno. what are you looking at? got a red suv, it's been following us for a few miles now.
10:37 pm
no. you're not kidding. it could be berelli's men, hoping we'll lead them to the ex-wife's house. we have agents guarding them. yeah, i'll call up ahead. hey, it's david sinclair... (crash) (tires screeching) are you serious? go, go, go, go! no, no, no, nono. hey! hey! hold on!
10:38 pm
frustrated with your overactive bladder medicine not wking? can't handle the side effects? botox treats symptoms of leaking, going too often, and the strong sudden need to go. ask your urologist if botox can help calm your bladder and reduce your daily leakage episodes. the effects of botox may spread hours to weeks after injection, causing serious symptoms. alert your doctor right away as difficulty swallowing, speaking, breathing, eye problems, loss of bladder control or muscle weakness can be a sign of a life-threatening condition. don't take botox if you can't empty your bladder on your own
10:39 pm
side effects may include allergic reactions, injection site pain, fatigue, uti, painful urination and difficulty emptying your bladr. tell your doctor your medical history. muscle or nerve conditions, medications including botulinum toxins, antiplatelets and blood thinners, may increase the risk of serious side effects. ask a urology specialist what super poligrip does for me is it keeps the food out. before those little pieces would get in between my dentures and my gum and it was uncomfortable. just a few dabs is clinically proven to seal out more food particles. super poligrip is part of my life now.
10:40 pm

(exhalesoudly) alan: so, why did fues confess to killing the boy when he didn't do it? he couldn't tolerate the thought of what really happened, so he created a false memory. but wasn't that false memory worse? larry: well, but not for the boy. you know, pony comforted himself with the delusion that he was providing the child a better death. now, granted that... that his death took place all in his own mind, but... alan: hey, larry, it's good to see you back. oh, thank you.
10:57 pm
truly i am, more than i can say, and i thank you for indulging my apprehension of walls and ceilings by dining al fresco like this. well, you're going to have to get over that, larry. you have to find a place to sleep, don't you? well, you know, i was rather hoping for a spot over near the koi pond tonight. (laughs) i think i have a better idea. oh, charles, i'm moved. yeah, you know, get you a reading light. maybe a little computer table. how about that? well, you know, i should mention, starting tomorrow, i do have a place to stay. really? where? well, i have secured a small but rather spiritually spacious cell at a monastery in altadena. you're becoming a monk? no, no, nothing so dramatic as that. no. the monastery allows the public to go on retreats there, and i just thought i needed some time to... transition for reentry. that's it. well, you know something, charles?
10:58 pm
and that outward focus-- it's given me quite a ride, but i just... now, i-i feel the need to explore the universe of a single mind. my o. well, altadena's only, what, a... a ten-minute drive from cal sci. well, or a 20-minute walk. of course, no cars. no 1931 ford roadster, but i would like to know what it's like to live without obsessions. white food? oh, that would be difficult. but, yes.
