- Detective T. Armstrong
- Tony Magro
Tony Magro: Tony Magro.
Detective Armstrong: Mr. Magro, this is Detective Armstrong with the Yoknapatawpha County Sheriff's Department in Mississippi. How are you today?
Tony Magro: Okay.
Detective Armstrong: I need to ask you some questions about a project you may be working on. Do you have a few minutes for me right now?
Tony Magro: Go ahead.
Detective Armstrong: Thanks. Are you acquainted with a man named Peter Pane?
Tony Magro: Maybe.
Detective Armstrong: Have you done any work for him in the last six months?
Tony Magro: Why do you want to know?
Detective Armstrong: If you could just answer the question, Mr. Magro?
Tony Magro: Look, I have no way of knowing that you are who you say you are, so I'm not going to be just answering your questions.
Detective Armstrong: If it would make you feel better, you can call me back here at the Yoknapatawpha County Sheriff's Department.
Tony Magro: You could just give me a fake number.
Detective Armstrong: I won't even give you a number. You can look it up online. Find it, call it, and ask for Detective Armstrong. That's me.
Tony Magro: I don't know. Maybe I'll just call Pete and check this out first.
Detective Armstrong: I can't stop you from doing that, sir, but I wouldn't recommend it.
Tony Magro: Oh, yeah? Why not?
Detective Armstrong: It could make you a suspect in an ongoing investigation. Or it could alert other suspects we're interested in talking to you about this investigation, and they might not take too kindly to that.
Tony Magro: Are you threatening me?
Detective Armstrong: Not at all, sir. I'm just telling you what's what.
Tony Magro: Yeah, right. I don't know what kind of game you're playing, but I want no part of it.
Detective Armstrong: This isn't a game, sir.
Tony Magro: I don't believe you because there's no way legit cops would have any interest in Peter Pane. He's not a criminal.
Detective Armstrong: How do you know?
Tony Magro: Because I know the guy. Look, I'm done. I'm hanging up now.
Detective Armstrong: That's your choice, sir. You can expect a visit from Shelby County sheriff's detectives in the next 24 hours.
Tony Magro: Yeah, I'm shaking in my boots. Get a life, jackass.
