Participants:

  • Detective Ted Armstrong
  • Detective Samantha Murphy
  • David Anderson

Detective Armstrong: Hey, Dave. How you doing?

David Anderson: Ted. It’s been a while. Sam, how’s it going?

Detective Murphy: You know how it is.

David Anderson: Yes, I do. There’s a reason I switched to the private sector. A lot less stress, and I almost never have to get up close and personal with a dead body anymore.

Detective Murphy: Almost never?

David Anderson: Well, you know, never say never. That’s just asking for trouble.

Detective Armstrong: Good point. Well, even after all these years, you probably still know the drien a7cp>sguy./e>Howneenever?
