- Kyle "Big Man" Ferguson
Detective Armstrong: Well, look what the cat drug in.
Kyle Ferguson: "Big Man" here. Reportin' for duty. What's my job today, Barney? Or do you go by, "Fife?"
Detective Armstrong: Name and address, punk.
Kyle Ferguson: Kyle "Big Man" Ferguson. Still live in Oxford, and I'm sure you know that. 394 Garner Street.
Detective Armstrong: Got your new meth lab set up there?
Kyle Ferguson: I told you before I don't do that stuff no more. Why don't you give it a rest?
Detective Armstrong: We'll find your lab, you know? What about methadone? You dealing in that now? Crack?
Kyle Ferguson: I get it. You're tryin' to stir me up. Ha. Cain't fool me, Barney.
Detective Murphy: You told us that you weren't at Wall Doxey on the day the D.A. was murdered. You still make that claim?
Kyle Ferguson: Look. I never even been to Wall Doxey Park. I lied. My dad hated me and I hated him, so he never took me to no park or nothin'. My buddies parents took them to the park and so I lied about my dad takin' me to park to all of 'em. So, I figured I might as well carry on with it.
Detective Armstrong: You expect us to believe that, don't you?
Kyle Ferguson: Don't matter to me if you do or not.
Detective Armstrong: When was the last time you saw D.A. Brooks?
Kyle Ferguson: Are you guys deaf or just getting old? I must remind you I guess. I haven't seen our pal Brooks since that day in court when he lied about me. I didn't kill the dude, but I'm glad I don't have to see his ugly face ever again. I am enjoyin' the picture in my mind of him burnin' in hell. Very enjoyable.
Detective Armstrong: What kind of gun do you have now, punk?
Kyle Ferguson: Ain't got no d*** gun! What kind of memory drugs you takin'? Ain't workin' too good, are they? I bet you use Viagra, too. Is it workin' as well as the memory stuff? Sad.
Detective Armstrong: You know we're gonna be watching, right?
Kyle Ferguson: Look. I'm tired of this cat and mouse crap, so I'm gonna give you a little help. Instead of being so intent on lockin' me up for something I ain't doin', maybe you better check out a guy by the name of Roy Cook?
Detective Armstrong: Roy Cook? You mean Park Ranger, Roy Cook?
Kyle Ferguson: That's right. You know exactly who I mean don't cha?
Detective Armstrong: Why? What do you want us to check him out for?
Kyle Ferguson: I ain't sayin' no more. But you're lookin' to pin something on me and you're barkin' up the wrong tree. I got no more to say.
Detective Armstrong: If you're sending us on a wild goose chase, we'll be coming back after you, you know?
Kyle Ferguson: I gotta go. Got a job interview.
Detective Armstrong: Go ahead. I have no doubt we'll be seeing you again real soon.
Interview ended: 9:05 a.m.
