Reilly and Flanagan, the two Irish cops, walk in, hands on the pistol in their holsters. The heads in The Lucky Canary all swivel toward the door.

“Where is he?” says Flanagan.

Tony says, “Where’s who, Reilly?”

“The guy with the orange jump suit,” says Reilly. Reilly nods to Flanagan, “Check the restrooms.”

“Do I have to? I got allergies to unflushed urinals,” says Flanagan.

“We always flush,” says Nick.

“Yah, Nick always flushes except when he is home,” says Tina.

Nick says, “Maybe I forget to flush if I’m checking Facebook while I pee, but I put the seat up all the time.”

Tina says, “I wish you’d remember to put it down.”

Legos says, “I got a cleaning crew comes in and cleans and disinfects the bathrooms every day. Go ahead and check.”

“Looks like orange suits not in the bathroom, Reilly. Let’s go. I’m jonesing a cheap beer and I’m on duty.”

“Bogey wants to know what makes you think there’s an orange jump suit in here, Reilly. Bogey also wants to know where the orange jump suit, got his orange jump suit. Bogey thinks it’s a fashion statement.”

Reilly turns toward the corner table. He says, “Tell Bogey, the orange suit heisted the Bridgewater minimum security prison warden’s car an hour ago. Reilly don’t know if he is dangerous. If he’s at Bridgewater, he’s not supposed to be dangerous, but you never can tell. What makes Bogey think the orange jump suit is a fashion statement?”

Flanagan taps Reilly’s shoulder, “Who’s Bogey? Who is this guy sucking down cheap beers and handfuls of nuts?”

Reilly says, “That’s Bogey.”

Flanagan says, “That can’t be Bogey because he’s speaking for Bogey. If he was Bogey he’d speak in first person.”

“How many times you been in The Lucky Canary?”

Flanagan puts a finger on his chin, pauses a moment, “It’s my second time.”

“You got a lot to learn, Flanagan,” says Reilly.

Flanagan taps Reilly’s shoulder, “Why are you talking to Bogey in third person?”

“It’s the only way Bogey understands what I’m saying,” says Reilly.

“Why didn’t they teach us how to talk in third person in the academy?” asks Flanagan.

Roxie taps Legos’ forearm, “These are the guys protecting us?”

Legos shrugs and rolls his eyes.

“Is Bogey dangerous? Should Flanagan and Reilly take Bogey in for thirty days eval? You know to protect Bogey from Bogey,” says Flanagan trying to sound like he’s mastered the third person thing.

Before Reilly can answer, Bogey says, “Bogey wants to know if there is a reward. Bogey only works on a cash basis.”

Flanagan says, “That can’t be Bogey because he’s speaking for Bogey. If he was Bogey he’d speak in first person.”

“How many time you been in The Lucky Canary?”

Flanagan puts a finger on his chin, pauses a moment, “It’s my second time.”

“You got a lot to learn, Flanagan,” says Reilly.

Legos calls over, “Reilly, Flanagan. Two cheap beers for later, catch.” Legos tosses a cheap beer to Reilly and one to Flanagan.

Reilly says, “We got to go. If you see orange suit, call the station.”

Tony says, “You talking Channel 4 with the hot broad Marcy Stankowski?”

Flanagan taps Reilly’s shoulder, “What’s he talking about?”

Reilly says, “I don’t know if you are cut out for this neighborhood, Flanagan. Let’s get over to the Donut King, my blood sugar is low.”

Reilly and Flanagan leave The Lucky Canary. Five minutes later the door opens and walks . . .
