Detective Parker: Hello, Kyle. Threatened any more murder victims lately?
Kyle Colby: Same smart mouth you had the last time I was here. What could you possibly want now? Pawing through my underwear drawer wasn't enough for you?
Detective Parker: Just doing our jobs.
Kyle Colby: Why don't you get a real job? I could sue you for false accusation.
Detective Parker: You're welcome to try. Let's hear your name and address so we can get to it. Do you remember them?
Kyle Colby: You know my name and my address, but you just had to ask, didn't you? I'm still Kyle Colby, and I still live at 1006 Jackson Avenue, right here in good old Oxford. Got it?
Detective Parker: Got it. We'd like to know a little more about your relationship with Victor Jennings.
Kyle Colby: What relationship? I didn't even know him.
Detective Murphy: Yet, you went to his home.
Kyle Colby: That was a long time before the guy was clipped.
Detective Parker: But you came back later and "clipped" him, didn't you?
Kyle Colby: I've never iced anyone! Why are you trying to lay this on me? Having a hard time working it all out?
Detective Parker: We're closing in, Kyle. That's why you're here.
Kyle Colby: I keep telling you, I don't know anything. You're looking for something that ain't there.
Detective Murphy: Tell us again about your encounter with Carl Asher.
Kyle Colby: Oh, that guy was hardcore. I've met some tough guys, but Asher wasn't one to mess around. He told me his boss wasn't there and I better leave the premises before he had to do something drastic.
Detective Murphy: Something drastic?
Kyle Colby: He casually moved his jacket, and I saw a gun in his shoulder holster. His eyes were cold and hard like he was looking at nothing.
Detective Murphy: So, it scared you? You act like a tough guy, Kyle. Surely, just seeing a gun in a holster wouldn't be enough to cause you to run with your tail between your legs like a scared puppy?
Kyle Colby: Listen, lady, I've met tough dudes before, but Asher is the real thing. He could've killed me without blinking an eye. I'm tough, but I'm not an idiot. I got out of there.
Detective Murphy: But you didn't tell this to Kristin, right?
Kyle Colby: No way! I gotta keep up my front, you know? I'm her hero.
Detective Parker: That's too bad because if she ever really needs you, you won't be there. Cowards never are.
Kyle Colby: You got no idea what you're talking about. You'd mess your pants if Asher looked at you the way he looked at me. I bet he's killed before. You need to do your job and stop picking on innocent people like me. I'm done. I'm outta here.
Detective Murphy: I have a feeling we'll need to talk to you again.
Kyle Colby: You better come with a warrant 'cause I ain't coming back here without one.
Detective Parker: Have a nice day.
