All right. I'll make it simple. 258 00:19:37,524 --> 00:19:41,903 Okay. The suspect was seen standing over the victim holding the gun. 259 00:19:41,972 --> 00:19:47,822 The only fingerprints on the gun was his, and it was common knowledge he'd been arguing with Drake about money. 260 00:19:47,892 --> 00:19:51,300 And, oh, yeah, the gun was stolen from a pawnshop... 261 00:19:51,370 --> 00:19:56,979 about six months ago in New York City, which is where Howard comes from, I believe. 262 00:19:57,056 --> 00:20:00,260 Now you've got the picture?

Victoria would've understood that. 285 00:21:32,000 --> 00:21:36,948 I know. That's the trouble.

He knew I was broke, so he held back on my wages. 298 00:22:20,859 --> 00:22:25,466 That still doesn't explain why you were standing over him with a murder weapon in your hand. 299 00:22:25,542 --> 00:22:30,958 Well, see, I finished my act, and I went back to his office to quit and get my money... 300 00:22:32,163 --> 00:22:35,105 Mr. Drake, I'm not listening to any more excuses. 301 00:22:35,173 --> 00:22:39,711 This is my last night, and I want what you owe me. 302 00:22:39,789 --> 00:22:44,669 Does this belong to you?

Isn't that a little precise, even for the medical examiner? 323 00:24:11,523 --> 00:24:15,491 It has nothing to do with the medical examiner, Mrs. Fletcher. 324 00:24:15,569 --> 00:24:19,913 That's when York was performing. The banging of his drums covered the sound of the shots. 325 00:24:19,983 --> 00:24:24,430 - Yeah, but... - Now, Mrs. Fletcher, if you'll excuse me now, I have the commissioner on the other line. 326 00:24:24,498 --> 00:24:29,002 Bye.

Bye. 338 00:25:07,907 --> 00:25:12,787 It's all been a terrible shock, but I know that Al would want us to carry on. 339 00:25:12,856 --> 00:25:17,327 I have to find somebody to replace Howard. Let me worry about that. 340 00:25:17,405 --> 00:25:21,441 Naturally, all contracts will be honored. 341 00:25:21,518 --> 00:25:26,364 Michelle, we have to do something about your lighting. 342 00:25:26,434 --> 00:25:29,274 You're getting some ugly shadows under your chins. 343 00:25:29,344 --> 00:25:33,380 [Mike] Well, if you wanna critique my performance, Mrs. Drake, 344 00:25:33,457 --> 00:25:36,228 I'd prefer the privacy of my dressing room. 345 00:25:36,300 --> 00:25:38,968 Don't you turn your back on me! 346 00:25:40,648 --> 00:25:44,787 Don't you ever speak to me that way in front of the staff again! 347 00:25:44,861 --> 00:25:48,829 I suppose we do have to keep up appearances, don't we, darling? 348 00:25:57,536 --> 00:26:00,603 Oh. Excuse me. Mrs. Fletcher, what'd they do? Find another body? 349 00:26:00,679 --> 00:26:03,348 I was looking for Miss Stevenson. Down the hall on the right. 350 00:26:03,422 --> 00:26:06,455 Uh-huh. You're Howard's aunt, aren't you? 351 00:26:06,533 --> 00:26:10,068 Well, very soon, we hope. That's a shame about this whole thing. 352 00:26:10,144 --> 00:26:13,143 I mean, he's a really nice kid, and he's got a lot of talent. 353 00:26:13,221 --> 00:26:15,251 And I'm not just talkin' about wearin' those dresses either. 354 00:26:15,328 --> 00:26:19,433 Yeah, well, I think you'll be pleased to know that he did not kill Mr. Drake. 355 00:26:19,508 --> 00:26:22,643 Oh, he didn't? Who did? The bird? 356 00:26:23,655 --> 00:26:26,597 You know, you have a wonderful sense of humor, Mr. York. 357 00:26:26,665 --> 00:26:30,838 It's too bad it's wasted in a dump like this, huh? I wouldn't call this a dump. 358 00:26:30,912 --> 00:26:35,325 What would you call it? You know, in Vegas... you think they'd give a star a dressing room like this? 359 00:26:35,394 --> 00:26:39,932 They got a llama in one of their shows up there. The llama's got a better dressing room than this. 360 00:26:41,113 --> 00:26:43,952 Well, at least you got a great view. I mean, look out there. You can see Alcatraz. 361 00:26:44,022 --> 00:26:48,332 That's my manager, Patterson. He couldn't negotiate me more money, so he negotiated a window. 362 00:26:51,579 --> 00:26:54,818 - [Freddy] Did you wanna see me about something? - Hmm? 363 00:26:54,891 --> 00:26:59,235 Oh, no, no. No. Forgive me for interrupting you. Uh... Uh... 364 00:26:59,305 --> 00:27:02,714 Down the hall on the right. Thank you. Thank you very much. 365 00:27:07,331 --> 00:27:10,136 [Barbara] If you'd like the figures, I could have them for you in a few minutes. 366 00:27:10,208 --> 00:27:15,784 Dear Barbara. Always so organized. You know where the bills are filed and the bodies are buried. 367 00:27:15,860 --> 00:27:21,208 Mrs. Drake, you misunderstand. I bet you even type 80 words a minute. 368 00:27:21,277 --> 00:27:25,052 Frankly, Barbara, I don't know how I could ever run this club without you, 369 00:27:25,123 --> 00:27:27,528 but I'm gonna try. 370 00:27:27,598 --> 00:27:31,372 - You're fired. - [Door Opens, Closes] 371 00:27:35,992 --> 00:27:39,960 - Could I give you a lift? - Oh, I know you. 372 00:27:40,039 --> 00:27:43,814 - Howard's aunt... almost. - Uh, right, right. 373 00:27:43,885 --> 00:27:46,792 Say, that looks heavy. Jump in. It's my treat. 374 00:27:46,861 --> 00:27:48,857 Uh, thanks. 375 00:28:01,609 --> 00:28:05,384 I really appreciate this now that I'm on a budget. I just got fired. 376 00:28:05,455 --> 00:28:08,259 Really? Uh-huh. 377 00:28:08,331 --> 00:28:11,364 It must have been so interesting working at the club. 378 00:28:11,441 --> 00:28:14,212 It was. You wouldn't believe some of the things that go on. 379 00:28:14,284 --> 00:28:18,959 But the only way to run an office is to learn to keep your mouth shut. 380 00:28:19,033 --> 00:28:24,574 I never divulge company business. Oh, I wouldn't dream of asking you anything. 381 00:28:24,652 --> 00:28:29,122 However, I, uh, did hear something. 382 00:28:29,200 --> 00:28:32,837 I wouldn't tell a soul. Well, 383 00:28:32,911 --> 00:28:37,986 Mr. Drake was already dead when Howard came in the room. 384 00:28:38,062 --> 00:28:40,832 No kidding! 385 00:28:40,905 --> 00:28:45,477 Then who killed him? Oh, I wouldn't know. I only got here yesterday. 386 00:28:46,489 --> 00:28:49,955 I wouldn't be surprised if she did it. 387 00:28:50,034 --> 00:28:52,942 Mrs. Drake? Mm. 388 00:28:53,011 --> 00:28:57,516 I suppose she would inherit the club, but she seems such a nice lady. 389 00:28:57,593 --> 00:28:59,531 Nice? [Scoffs] 390 00:28:59,599 --> 00:29:02,700 Lucretia Borgia in furs. 391 00:29:02,777 --> 00:29:06,448 Confidentially... and, I mean, this is just between you and me... 392 00:29:06,522 --> 00:29:09,794 she's having an affair with Mike. 393 00:29:09,867 --> 00:29:13,538 Mike. Michelle. The female impersonator? 394 00:29:13,612 --> 00:29:15,676 Oh. What a phony. 395 00:29:15,752 --> 00:29:19,857 And nobody's supposed to know this, but Mike was trying to buy the club from Mr. Drake. 396 00:29:19,933 --> 00:29:25,508 Can you believe that? And behind his back, he and Mrs. D. Are slipping off to Lake Tahoe. 397 00:29:25,584 --> 00:29:29,998 But I thought... Ohh. Now, don't ever say you heard this from me, 398 00:29:30,066 --> 00:29:33,601 but I wouldn't put it past Bill Patterson to kill 'im. 399 00:29:33,678 --> 00:29:37,315 Oh. Mr. York's agent. Uh-huh. 400 00:29:37,389 --> 00:29:40,229 Why would he... The contract. 401 00:29:40,299 --> 00:29:44,438 See, not many people know this, but Mr. Drake had Freddy under a seven-year contract, 402 00:29:44,513 --> 00:29:47,454 and recently, big offers were coming in for Freddy. 403 00:29:47,522 --> 00:29:53,406 I am talking about megabucks. Except that Mr. Drake wouldn't let him out of the contract. 404 00:29:53,476 --> 00:29:56,418 Stop at the top of the hill. 405 00:30:00,934 --> 00:30:05,575 Thanks for the lift. And don't worry. I won't say a word about what you've told me. 406 00:30:05,649 --> 00:30:10,062 It is so nice to talk to someone who knows how to be discreet. 407 00:30:13,274 --> 00:30:16,547 Thinking of buying it or merely jumping? 408 00:30:18,558 --> 00:30:21,398 You kept me waiting. Is this a sign of things to come? 409 00:30:21,468 --> 00:30:26,816 Mike, if we're gonna bicker like an old married couple, let's do it over something important, huh? 410 00:30:28,123 --> 00:30:31,726 [Sighs] Is it something I said? 411 00:30:31,801 --> 00:30:34,800 No. It's the way you said it. You know, I'm not used to being summoned. 412 00:30:34,878 --> 00:30:39,690 Oh, darling, don't pout. It was merely a request, pure and simple. 413 00:30:39,761 --> 00:30:43,637 I thought we should get our stories straight for that Mrs. Fletcher. 414 00:30:43,707 --> 00:30:47,948 She is determined to get Howard off the hook by putting someone else on. 415 00:30:48,021 --> 00:30:50,689 Well, surely not me? Nor me! 416 00:30:50,764 --> 00:30:55,735 I mean, no reasonable person could assume for one moment that I had anything to do with Al's death. 417 00:30:55,813 --> 00:30:59,120 No. Other than the fact that you despised the man... 418 00:30:59,191 --> 00:31:01,825 and that you were talking to a lawyer about divorce proceedings. 419 00:31:01,900 --> 00:31:06,644 And naturally, you didn't care that he reneged on his promise to sell you the club? 420 00:31:09,726 --> 00:31:13,135 So here we are. We both got rid of Al. Yep. 421 00:31:13,204 --> 00:31:16,978 You have the club and all of his money, and I have you. 422 00:31:17,050 --> 00:31:21,429 A fortuitous turn of events. Couldn't have worked out better if we'd planned it. 423 00:31:22,769 --> 00:31:24,764 Which of course we didn't... Well... 424 00:31:24,841 --> 00:31:28,114 Darling, is there something I should know just for my own peace of mind? 425 00:31:29,490 --> 00:31:33,059 Funny, Mike. I was about to ask you the same question. 426 00:31:33,135 --> 00:31:37,411 You know, if you did kill him, it wouldn't make any difference. 427 00:31:37,483 --> 00:31:40,722 I'd still feel the same way about you. 428 00:31:40,794 --> 00:31:43,428 My very thought about you, Candice. 429 00:31:43,503 --> 00:31:47,642 Oh, Mike, you don't know how much better I feel now that we've talked. 430 00:31:47,716 --> 00:31:50,156 Me too, darling. 431 00:32:07,348 --> 00:32:11,157 Mike... Michelle... was backstage getting ready to go on. 432 00:32:11,227 --> 00:32:14,636 Of course, Barbara... And I sent Felix backstage at once. 433 00:32:14,705 --> 00:32:17,909 Yeah, but you're sure about Patterson and Mrs. Drake? They were out front? 434 00:32:17,982 --> 00:32:19,921 Everybody saw them. Right. 435 00:32:19,989 --> 00:32:25,200 Lieutenant? Oh, I'm so glad I caught you. Any result on the nitric acid test? 436 00:32:25,273 --> 00:32:27,770 Uh, it was negative, Mrs. Fletcher. Oh, negative. 437 00:32:27,848 --> 00:32:31,120 That means he didn't fire the gun. Well, maybe he was wearing gloves. 438 00:32:31,193 --> 00:32:34,191 Well, if he'd worn gloves, his fingerprints wouldn't have been all over the gun. 439 00:32:34,270 --> 00:32:39,743 You can't have it both ways, Lieutenant. Incidentally, have you noticed how many people around this club are wearing gloves? 440 00:32:39,821 --> 00:32:43,196 No, but I'm sure you've got a list. Also, I'm not sure about the time of death. 441 00:32:43,265 --> 00:32:45,865 Now, that's one thing I am sure of. 442 00:32:45,941 --> 00:32:51,186 Oh, you mean your theory that the shot was masked by Freddy York's drum act? Mm. 443 00:32:51,258 --> 00:32:55,899 Well, can you prove that scientifically? How would you do that, Mrs. Fletcher? 444 00:32:55,974 --> 00:32:59,212 [Firing] [Bird Squawks] 445 00:32:59,285 --> 00:33:03,492 Did you hear that? Yes, Mrs. Fletcher, I heard it. 446 00:33:03,565 --> 00:33:07,510 Well, uh, let's try it with music. 447 00:33:07,579 --> 00:33:11,250 Now, let's just pretend one of the girls is dancing. 448 00:33:11,324 --> 00:33:13,695 ??[Radio: Disco] 449 00:33:17,209 --> 00:33:19,980 Once again, please, Charlie! 450 00:33:21,022 --> 00:33:24,261 [Gunshot] Oh, dear. I heard that. 451 00:33:24,334 --> 00:33:29,339 We all heard it, Mrs. Fletcher. With the door closed. With the door open. With music. 452 00:33:29,416 --> 00:33:33,191 Even with a Mummer's Parade going across the stage. 453 00:33:33,262 --> 00:33:35,258 Face it, Mrs. Fletcher. ?? [Radio Off] 454 00:33:35,336 --> 00:33:38,369 The shot would have been heard except during York's act, 455 00:33:38,446 --> 00:33:41,650 when York was playing the drums on the stage. 456 00:33:41,723 --> 00:33:45,189 Yes, I suppose that is the only plausible explanation. 457 00:33:45,268 --> 00:33:49,271 Oh, thank you, Mrs. Fletcher. I'm so happy to see that you're satisfied. 458 00:33:49,349 --> 00:33:52,382 - Now, if you'll excuse me... - Hey, Lieutenant. Wait a minute. 459 00:33:52,459 --> 00:33:55,560 I mean, what the hell is going on here? A detective audition? 460 00:33:55,636 --> 00:33:58,544 What's this lady trying to suggest? That one of us killed Drake? 461 00:34:03,462 --> 00:34:07,635 - Are you all right, Mrs. Fletcher? - Oh, yes. 462 00:34:07,709 --> 00:34:10,114 Ohh. 463 00:34:10,183 --> 00:34:12,749 [Groaning] 464 00:34:12,825 --> 00:34:15,699 [Bell Ringing] 465 00:34:21,186 --> 00:34:23,660 [Knocking] 466 00:34:30,985 --> 00:34:34,189 Ohh. Oh, dear. I woke you up. 467 00:34:34,262 --> 00:34:38,606 Yeah. Well, when I work all night, I sleep a little during the day, or at least I try to. 468 00:34:38,677 --> 00:34:40,775 I'd like to talk to you about Howard. 469 00:34:40,851 --> 00:34:44,021 You didn't come up here and wake me up to tell me we're holding the wrong man? 470 00:34:44,095 --> 00:34:47,002 You already know we are. [Sighs] 471 00:34:47,071 --> 00:34:51,279 Uh, I made some coffee. You want some? Oh, thank you. 472 00:34:51,352 --> 00:34:54,625 What a pretty cat. What's her name? 473 00:34:54,696 --> 00:34:58,299 - George. - [George Meows] 474 00:34:58,375 --> 00:35:01,579 Oh, she likes you. Most people, she hates. 475 00:35:01,653 --> 00:35:04,092 Oh, that's the impression I got about you. 476 00:35:04,160 --> 00:35:07,068 Aha. Well, that's my office persona. 477 00:35:07,137 --> 00:35:10,912 Well, it just goes to show you can't go by first impressions. 478 00:35:10,983 --> 00:35:15,190 [Chuckles] Uh, Mrs. Fletcher, you're a nice lady, 479 00:35:15,264 --> 00:35:17,669 but, uh, I think you're making a big mistake. 480 00:35:17,738 --> 00:35:20,771 - Howard Griffin is guilty. - Oh, for heaven's sakes. 481 00:35:20,848 --> 00:35:25,694 There were at least four people who had better motives than Howard. For instance, Mrs. Drake. 482 00:35:25,764 --> 00:35:30,337 Yes. She gets the business. I know. Freddy York and his agent, Bill Patterson, 483 00:35:30,413 --> 00:35:32,784 trying to break Freddy's long-term contract. 484 00:35:32,855 --> 00:35:34,918 I know, Mrs. Fletcher. I read the Chronicle. 485 00:35:34,995 --> 00:35:37,993 I suppose you know that Michael Dupont wanted to buy the club. 486 00:35:38,072 --> 00:35:42,610 - Yes. - And that Michael and Mrs. Drake were having an affair? 487 00:35:45,262 --> 00:35:49,071 Mrs. Fletcher, you're a bright gal. You would've been a great cop. 488 00:35:49,141 --> 00:35:53,280 But look. This is the real world, so please... just leave the police work to us. 489 00:35:53,354 --> 00:35:56,228 The last thing in the world I want to do is interfere, Lieutenant. 490 00:35:56,298 --> 00:36:01,840 But that's not what I'm worried about. Look, we took some lab tests. 491 00:36:01,916 --> 00:36:05,188 The rope that was holding the stage light was eaten through by acid. 492 00:36:05,261 --> 00:36:08,932 It was not an accident. Oh, dear. 493 00:36:09,006 --> 00:36:12,609 - Somebody wanted to kill Mr. York. - Maybe. 494 00:36:12,684 --> 00:36:16,254 Or it could've been meant to hit somebody else. 495 00:36:18,872 --> 00:36:21,813 I don't know how to thank you, Mrs. Fletcher. 496 00:36:21,881 --> 00:36:26,853 Well, just so you know, if you jump bail, the State of California has an option on my next four books. 497 00:36:26,932 --> 00:36:30,398 And the name is Jessica. And I really appreciate the suit, Jessica. 498 00:36:30,476 --> 00:36:33,418 Well, I think it made a better impression on the judge. 499 00:36:33,486 --> 00:36:36,930 Let's call Vicky and celebrate. I think that's a bit premature. 500 00:36:36,998 --> 00:36:42,574 Howard, did you see Mrs. Drake backstage during Freddy York's act? No. 501 00:36:42,650 --> 00:36:47,097 You're sure? I'm positive, but I did see her comin' in the stage door just before I went on. 502 00:36:47,164 --> 00:36:50,733 Howard, I think that you should take Vicky to lunch yourself, 503 00:36:50,809 --> 00:36:52,873 and I'll take a rain check. Wh... 504 00:36:52,950 --> 00:36:54,946 Where are you goin'? 505 00:36:57,699 --> 00:37:02,374 Oh! Good shot! Oh, my! What a nice dog! What's his name? 506 00:37:02,448 --> 00:37:04,853 Fritz, but be careful. He's had attack training. 507 00:37:04,923 --> 00:37:09,837 That's a very attractive outfit. I've never seen it done in black. 508 00:37:09,906 --> 00:37:12,403 I'm in mourning, Mrs. Fletcher. 509 00:37:12,481 --> 00:37:17,726 - You know me? - By now, everyone at the club knows you. 510 00:37:19,804 --> 00:37:24,844 Do please accept my condolences. Your husband's death must have been a terrible shock. 511 00:37:24,921 --> 00:37:27,190 Yes. We were very close. 512 00:37:27,262 --> 00:37:31,230 Then I suppose you must have talked to him shortly before the tragic event? 513 00:37:31,309 --> 00:37:35,117 No. I didn't see him. I arrived during Freddy's act. 514 00:37:35,188 --> 00:37:39,659 Strange. Someone said they saw you come in the stage door earlier. 515 00:37:39,737 --> 00:37:44,309 They were wrong. Let me set you straight, lady. I didn't kill my husband. 516 00:37:44,385 --> 00:37:46,791 Oh, I'm sorry. Did I suggest that? Look, 517 00:37:46,860 --> 00:37:52,675 if you insist on sticking your nose where it doesn't belong, then check on Freddy York and that bloodsucking agent of his. 518 00:37:52,746 --> 00:37:56,816 - Oh, yes. The contract with the club. - Not the club. With Al. 519 00:37:56,893 --> 00:38:01,637 A personal services contract, which is now null and void. That's right. 520 00:38:01,709 --> 00:38:05,917 I went to the hospital today to bring Freddy flowers, and do you know what he did? 521 00:38:05,990 --> 00:38:08,395 He gave me notice. 522 00:38:08,464 --> 00:38:13,276 Then he's well enough to receive visitors. How nice. 523 00:38:13,346 --> 00:38:16,790 Las Vegas. Atlantic City! 524 00:38:16,858 --> 00:38:19,527 Hollywood! Wait, wait, wait, wait, wait. 525 00:38:19,601 --> 00:38:22,839 First and foremost, to Al Drake. 526 00:38:22,911 --> 00:38:27,586 I never thought I'd see the day when I'd be drinking to Al Drake. [Door Opens] 527 00:38:27,660 --> 00:38:30,066 Oh, am I interrupting? 528 00:38:30,135 --> 00:38:33,601 Not at all. Mrs. Fletcher, come on in. Come on in. How about a bit of the bubbly? 529 00:38:33,680 --> 00:38:36,986 Oh, no, no. Thank you. Oh, you're looking so much better, Mr. York. 530 00:38:37,058 --> 00:38:39,794 Well, thank you. I've been thinking Lourdes. [Chuckles] 531 00:38:39,867 --> 00:38:43,002 You met my manager, Bill Patterson. Oh, yes. 532 00:38:43,077 --> 00:38:46,646 The lady seems to know just about everybody. Well, what is it this time, Mrs. Fletcher? 533 00:38:46,723 --> 00:38:51,899 Oh, just wanted to wish Mr. York a speedy recovery and, uh... [Bill] "And"? And what? 534 00:38:51,974 --> 00:38:57,116 Just ask a few more questions, like did I murder Al Drake? The answer is no. 535 00:38:57,190 --> 00:39:00,725 Did Freddy murder Al Drake? The answer is no. Bill, Bill, take it easy. 536 00:39:00,803 --> 00:39:05,375 It's okay. I know you're a mystery writer, but I'll tell ya: You're making a fool of yourself. 537 00:39:05,451 --> 00:39:08,518 Why don't you get back to Nantucket? Maine. 538 00:39:08,594 --> 00:39:12,631 Whatever. My client was onstage when Drake was killed. 539 00:39:12,708 --> 00:39:16,152 As a matter of fact, somebody tried to kill him with a stage light. 540 00:39:16,220 --> 00:39:21,727 Isn't that curious? Michelle Dupont is sure that someone wanted to drop it on him, 541 00:39:21,805 --> 00:39:24,473 and Lieutenant Novak thinks they were trying to kill me, 542 00:39:24,547 --> 00:39:27,113 and now you think it was meant for Mr. York. 543 00:39:27,189 --> 00:39:30,963 It is a bit of a puzzler, isn't it? 544 00:39:37,957 --> 00:39:40,956 I'm sorry, Vicky. I think we oughta postpone the wedding. 545 00:39:41,034 --> 00:39:44,341 I thought marriage was supposed to be for better or worse. That's afterwards. 546 00:39:44,412 --> 00:39:48,448 Darling, I just can't ask you to tie yourself to me with all this hanging over my head. 547 00:39:48,525 --> 00:39:51,125 But you're innocent. I don't have a job! 548 00:39:51,201 --> 00:39:53,903 I don't care. Aunt Jessica, tell her. 549 00:39:53,977 --> 00:39:58,219 What do you think, Aunt Jessica? I think Noah is building his ark in there. 550 00:39:58,291 --> 00:40:02,065 [Hammering] Darlings, I am going to fall on my face unless I go to sleep. 551 00:40:02,136 --> 00:40:05,375 Won't that noise disturb you? Right now, I could sleep through Armageddon. 552 00:40:05,447 --> 00:40:11,262 Now, listen to me, children. We are going to get to the bottom of this. I promise you. 553 00:40:11,333 --> 00:40:15,142 There's something I am overlooking. I just know there is. 554 00:40:15,212 --> 00:40:18,120 But I think it'll come to me if I have a good sleep. 555 00:40:18,189 --> 00:40:20,185 Okay. 556 00:40:20,263 --> 00:40:22,235 We'll talk later. 557 00:40:23,908 --> 00:40:26,748 [Sawing, Hammering] 558 00:40:48,321 --> 00:40:53,794 [Circular Saw Whirs, Hammering Continues] [Groans] 559 00:40:58,655 --> 00:41:00,821 Of course! 560 00:41:01,966 --> 00:41:05,911 It suddenly came to me: The feather. 561 00:41:05,979 --> 00:41:08,681 Wait a minute. Wait a minute. 562 00:41:08,754 --> 00:41:11,993 - What came to you? - Drake wasn't shot during Freddy York's act. 563 00:41:12,066 --> 00:41:15,703 - Oh, Mrs. Fletcher, as I recall, we scientific... - The killer used a silencer. 564 00:41:15,777 --> 00:41:18,343 They don't make silencers for that gun. 565 00:41:18,419 --> 00:41:21,954 Remember the feather we found on Mr. Drake's jacket? Yes. It came from the bird. 566 00:41:22,032 --> 00:41:26,672 No. Whoever killed Drake used a pillow to muffle the sound of the shot. 567 00:41:26,747 --> 00:41:29,187 - That's why nobody heard it. - Wait a minute. Wait a minute. 568 00:41:29,255 --> 00:41:32,596 If what you say is true, he could've been shot before Freddy went on the stage. 569 00:41:32,667 --> 00:41:34,502 Exactly. 570 00:41:37,348 --> 00:41:43,062 There's no bullet hole in this pillow. But this pillow was not in this room when we discovered the body. 571 00:41:43,134 --> 00:41:47,136 Mrs. Fletcher, please. Wait, wait, wait. Don't take my word for it. 572 00:41:50,859 --> 00:41:52,957 Look. No pillow. 573 00:41:53,033 --> 00:41:57,139 These are police photographs. Where did you get them? Your partner, Charlie. 574 00:41:57,214 --> 00:41:59,619 You know, he's really a very nice man. 575 00:41:59,688 --> 00:42:02,493 Then someone put this pillow in here after the investigation. 576 00:42:02,564 --> 00:42:05,939 Because Drake's pillow was damaged by the shot. 577 00:42:06,009 --> 00:42:09,475 [Novak] So the murderer had to get rid of it. 578 00:42:09,554 --> 00:42:14,229 But the murderer was afraid that someone would notice that Drake's pillow was gone, 579 00:42:14,303 --> 00:42:17,872 so he put this one there to cover his tracks. 580 00:42:17,948 --> 00:42:22,190 I don't know if you've noticed, but the settees in all the dressing rooms match. 581 00:42:22,262 --> 00:42:24,234 Probably a bulk purchase. 582 00:42:24,303 --> 00:42:27,677 Lieutenant, would you help me to demonstrate something? 583 00:42:29,452 --> 00:42:33,626 Please stand right there. Would you mind telling me what this is all about? 584 00:42:33,700 --> 00:42:36,938 It's very important that you don't move. [Sighs] 585 00:42:44,033 --> 00:42:47,477 You haven't moved, have you? I haven't moved. 586 00:42:47,545 --> 00:42:50,248 [Whooshing] 587 00:42:51,525 --> 00:42:54,261 What were you trying to do? Kill me? Aha! You moved. 588 00:42:54,334 --> 00:42:57,333 - Of course I did! - You heard it descending. 589 00:42:57,411 --> 00:43:00,353 I'm not deaf. Well, neither was Freddy York. 590 00:43:00,421 --> 00:43:02,656 [Applause] 591 00:43:02,728 --> 00:43:06,970 That was great. That was... I really enjoyed that, you know? You're quite a performer. 592 00:43:07,042 --> 00:43:10,885 You should get yourself a Guild card. I didn't expect to find you here, Mr. York. 593 00:43:10,955 --> 00:43:13,394 Well, I heal fast. You see, I got good genes. 594 00:43:13,464 --> 00:43:17,340 That was very theatrical, diving off the stage when you didn't have to. 595 00:43:17,410 --> 00:43:21,378 Well, it seems to me all you proved is that I could've staged the falling lights. 596 00:43:21,456 --> 00:43:24,626 That doesn't mean I had anything to do with what happened to Al Drake. 597 00:43:24,700 --> 00:43:27,835 You know what? I'd like to stay around and talk, but I gotta fly to Vegas. 598 00:43:27,910 --> 00:43:30,316 I hope my arms don't get tired. 599 00:43:30,385 --> 00:43:33,452 You're beautiful. I'll see ya. 600 00:43:36,405 --> 00:43:39,780 Will you lighten up? I mean, you both know I was onstage when Drake got hit. 601 00:43:39,850 --> 00:43:42,951 Yeah, but the lady here thinks you shot him before you went on stage. 602 00:43:43,027 --> 00:43:45,627 I think you used Mr. Drake's pillow to muffle the shot. 603 00:43:45,702 --> 00:43:48,803 Then you removed your fingerprints from the gun, got rid of the pillow... 604 00:43:48,879 --> 00:43:50,977 and went on stage. 605 00:43:51,053 --> 00:43:56,663 Who writes your material? I mean, who writes this stuff? Your punch lines just don't work. 606 00:43:56,738 --> 00:44:01,082 I think you made one very serious mistake. I don't have time for this. I have a plane to catch. 607 00:44:01,153 --> 00:44:05,189 You were afraid that someone would notice that the pillow was gone from Mr. Drake's room... 608 00:44:05,267 --> 00:44:07,399 and that they would figure out what had happened. 609 00:44:07,474 --> 00:44:10,176 So you brought in the pillow from your room. 610 00:44:10,249 --> 00:44:14,194 Everybody... Everybody in this place has got a pillow just like that. No. 611 00:44:14,262 --> 00:44:19,210 This is your pillow. It's the only one that is sun-faded, like the settee, 612 00:44:19,279 --> 00:44:24,489 because yours is the only one that is sitting right next to the window. 613 00:44:31,218 --> 00:44:35,129 It's my luck. It's my dumb luck. 614 00:44:35,198 --> 00:44:39,804 Half the people in this club wanted Drake dead, and your niece's boyfriend's gotta get tagged for it. 615 00:44:39,880 --> 00:44:42,217 I knew you were trouble as soon as I saw you. 616 00:44:42,288 --> 00:44:46,598 What was I gonna do? Spend the rest of my life workin' in this rinky-dink club? 617 00:44:46,669 --> 00:44:49,006 You ever try to tell jokes when someone's got their hands on your throat? 618 00:44:49,077 --> 00:44:51,516 Surely murder isn't the answer. 619 00:44:52,956 --> 00:44:56,594 Yeah, well, you call it murder. I call it a career move. 620 00:44:56,668 --> 00:45:01,172 Look at me. What do you see? I'm not just another comedian. 621 00:45:01,250 --> 00:45:05,321 I'm Freddy York. I'm the first guy that did his own rim shots. 622 00:45:05,397 --> 00:45:09,536 I'm like the Edison of comedy. I'm Robert Fulton on the drums. 623 00:45:09,610 --> 00:45:13,578 So Al Drake sees me one night. He says, " Kid, you're good. Here's a long-term contract. 624 00:45:13,658 --> 00:45:16,725 It's your shot, your big break." 625 00:45:16,801 --> 00:45:19,435 He broke my spirit. That man broke my heart. 626 00:45:19,510 --> 00:45:23,421 I couldn't let him do that. I'm a creative genius. 627 00:45:23,489 --> 00:45:25,894 Fair is fair. 628 00:45:25,965 --> 00:45:28,096 He gave me a shot. 629 00:45:29,241 --> 00:45:31,476 I gave him a shot. 630 00:45:32,954 --> 00:45:35,553 Ba-dum-bum. 631 00:45:35,629 --> 00:45:37,966 Should've shoved you under that stage light. 632 00:45:39,274 --> 00:45:42,078 - Why did you rig that? - Why don't you ask her? 633 00:45:43,221 --> 00:45:47,725 I think Mr. York was afraid the charges against Howard would be dropped. 634 00:45:47,802 --> 00:45:51,611 They weren't strong enough, so he thought perhaps another murder attempt, 635 00:45:51,681 --> 00:45:55,751 particularly against himself, would point to someone else. 636 00:45:55,829 --> 00:46:00,469 Boy, you are good. I mean, you are really, really good. 637 00:46:01,481 --> 00:46:04,787 You ever think of taking your act on the road? You should play Vegas. 638 00:46:06,096 --> 00:46:09,095 That reminds me. I better cancel my tickets. 639 00:46:09,172 --> 00:46:12,080 Doesn't look like I'm gonna be goin'. 640 00:46:13,219 --> 00:46:16,857 It's too bad. I could've knocked 'em dead. 641 00:46:18,737 --> 00:46:21,405 I'm sure you would have. 642 00:46:23,419 --> 00:46:28,333 ??[Organ: Ceremonial] [Man] By the power vested in me by the State of California, 643 00:46:28,402 --> 00:46:31,070 I now pronounce you man and wife. 644 00:46:47,497 --> 00:46:49,697 Oh, congratulations.
