  • Detective S. Murphy
  • Raquel Santos

Detective Armstrong: All right. As you might recall, I'm Detective Armstrong. There's Detective Murphy.

Detective Murphy: Welcome back, Ms. Santos.

Raquel Santos: Don't you guys have anything better to do than to drag me in here after tossing my place? What's the big idea, having me picked up like that?

Detective Armstrong: Maybe we have a sneaking suspicion you've got something to tell us.

Raquel Santos: Like what?

Detective Armstrong: Ms. Santos, we're getting a little tired of your games.

Detective Murphy: You know, your friend Benito is in a heap of trouble, and we need to know where he was the night Mr. Fontaine was murdered. You can either help us and save yourself, or fight against us and go down with him.

Raquel Santos: I told you already. I don't know where the hell he went.

Detective Armstrong: I don't need to remind you, but if you don't help us now, we won't help you later. Like when we pass this on to the D.A. for charges.

Raquel Santos: Don't bully me. I'm telling the truth.

Detective Armstrong: Let's try taking this step by step. The day Mr. Fontaine died, you left work early?

Raquel Santos: The missus chewed me out, and I didn't want to take it. I gave rich bitch Ashley a piece of my mind and walked out. She yells at me all the time. It was nothing new.

Detective Murphy: Well, it must have been pretty upsetting for you to walk out without getting paid.

Raquel Santos: Yeah? So what? I just wanted to get out of there. I was going to pick up the check Monday. I neredondanfu toZode-e night t> Detective Murptrong: Let'Twoks. <' gogn ththing new.onenaof y the witn$15,000ito is ibrt&helep
