For Lourdes

Scene shifts to 129th Police Precinct.

JARED Hey. Where have you been? You haven’t returned any of my phone calls.

MICHAELA: Yeah, I, um I needed a couple days to clear my head.

JARED: Mick, you just disappeared.

MICHAELA: I know. I I was hoping that I could get some clarity on what happened.

JARED: Did you?

MICHAELA: I can’t get over what we did. It’s not right.

JARED: We’re supposed to be together, Mick.

MICHAELA: Supposed to be or not, we’re we’re not together. You’re with Lourdes. I’m not gonna take you away from her. I won’t do that.

JARED: You’re not taking me. I—

For a Getaway Vehicle

RIOJAS: Welcome back. I need one of you down on the waterfront. Recovery of the getaway vehicle from that armored-car heist that went into the East River.

MICHAELA: That’s still happening?

RIOJAS: Yeah. It’s going on four days now. At first, divers couldn’t go into the water because of the electrical storm. Now they can’t even find the thing.

MICHAELA: How do you lose a utility vehicle in the river?

RIOJAS: You got me.

JARED: Isn’t babysitting a little below our pay grade?

RIOJAS: Well, this baby went for a swim with $75 million stashed inside. Now, last night, a couple of geniuses with scuba tanks tried to find it themselves. So, the chief of detectives wants a gold shield on-site, ’round the clock, till the thing comes up.

RIOJAS: How about Vasquez takes the day shift so that he can be at home with his wife, um, and I’ll do nights?

JARED: It works for me.

RIOJAS: Great. Get a move on.

One thought on “On the Look Out (114.8)

  1. Looking forward to S2. But a few of the “over the top” exaggerations from S1 will forever be imprinted in my long-term memory. For example:

    Capt Riojas said this about the duffel bags of cash stashed in the van James Griffin drove into the East River, “Well, this baby went for a swim with $75 million stashed inside.” When the money was stolen by Griffin, it was in the process of being placed in an armored car.

    This is what a melmagazine.com article said about money transported in armored cars:

    “Banks rarely work in denominations higher than $100 bills, Ash says. And a “strap” of 100s — one of the banded stacks of $100 bills you see in films — is worth $10,000 (or a hundred $100 bills). A “bundle” is 10 straps, worth $100,000. A “rack” is 10 bundles, or $1 million. A pallet can hold 100 racks, or $100 million. And your standard-issue armored truck can transport between four and six pallets, or up to $600 million.”

    In Griffin’s situation, if his van held $75 million (all $100 bills), he would have had to either stuff 7500 “straps” or 750 bundles or 75 “racks” (3/4 of a pallet) into it … not a couple of duffel bags. I’m not complaining or hate-watching, simply paying attention. Just like I plan to do in S2.
