The Oldski Files: Tightening the Screws




Savalaga: [noticing Cappy walk over to his diner booth with a measured subtlety] Franco!

Cappy: [palms raised] Keep it down, will ya?

Savalaga: Sure, Franco, sure. [pointing to the bench opposite to him] Come on, sit down for a minute. . . . Good. What can I get for you? Ginger ale? Root beer? How 'bout a root beer? Oh, and Maxine makes the best lemon pud---

Cappy: Enough. You didn't pull me out to this dive in the middle of the night to try some broad's lem'n puddin'.

Savalaga: [coy expression]

Cappy: Give me all you got.

Savalaga: [serious, but with a hint of reporter's satisfaction] I got a lot, Franco.

Cappy: [slight smile, playing clueless] Like what?

Savalaga: Like extreme incompetence on the street beat.

Cappy: You've got nothing.

Savalaga: [leaning closer] How's Oldski these days, Franco?

Cappy: [silence]

Savalaga: You know what I have. Department statistics. Personal observations. Tales of futility that would make your grandma cross herself five minutes just to feel clean again.

Cappy: Who's the canary?

Savalaga: Does it matter? It's as plain as day. [points, tries to get the waitress's attention; unsuccessful, he leans back in the booth] Journalists don't reveal their sources anyway. [broad grin]

Cappy: So what's the score?

Savalaga: Tomorrow's headline is going to read "INCOMPETENCE, INACTION AT NAT CITY PD." How would you like that headline to change between now and tomorrow?

Cappy: I've got a lot of pull downtown with the boys, Savalaga. I've been around, and I've got a big name.

Savalaga: I know you do, Franco. And I like you, I really do. [picks at a fingernail for a moment] I can hold off the heat for awhile, but you've gotta take him out.

Cappy: And?

Savalaga: [attention back to the fingernail] And . . . I scratch your back, maybe someday you scratch mine.

Cappy: [ponders] Alright. Oldski won't like it---

Savalaga: They never do . . .

Cappy: ---but if that's what needs to be done. But I need to be careful here.

Savalaga: Mix things up, Franco. Make it part of a larger lineup shuffle. Tell him it's just temporary and he can sub in a pinch when you need him.

Cappy: I've been a captain since you were in diapers, Savalaga. I know how it's done.

Savalaga: I'm sure you do, Franco. I'm sure you do. [upfolding himself from the booth] Now, if you'll excuse me, I've got reporter things to do.

Cappy: I'm sure you do.

Comments:
Hmm, I'm intrigued now how Oldski is going to make his way back onto the force, assuming the Capitan can't get over his loyalty to veterans of the force and puts him back on. Seems like the newspaper would have a field day with that. Especially if the PD makes some real strides during that time.

There's more there there---insidious masterminds up the hierarchy who confound others' reasoning but are eventually exposed by "following the money."

But the network only started this show on a three-episode run, so this is what we have for now. But if a plot twist develops, the network is malleable. It's got little better to run; hey, it's FOX! ;-)
