Blow Out

Terry, do you know how many conspiracy
nuts I've already had in here today?

If I had a fuckin' dime for every one of 'em
I'd buy all of Florida and retire in peace.

It's very clear in these photos.
The flash and the smoke.

It could be a lot of things. Why the fuck
does everything have to be a conspiracy?

A man has a couple too many drinks,
he drives off the road, falls into a creek.

- Accident, plain and simple.
- It was not an accident.

I was there. That tyre was shot out.
I heard it. I recorded it.

So you're an earwitness
to an assassination. It's got a nice ring.

- Are you heading up the investigation?
- Yeah.

- Did you check McRyan's tyre?
- No. Why should I?

It has a bullet hole. He was killed.
- Says you. Everybody else says accident.
- Who?

I got a special commission formin' here
that's gonna say it was an accident.

That's gonna say it was?
They have no evidence! They don't have
the tape, the tyre, they didn't speak to me.

I know all about you and your fuckin'
tapes. You put a lotta good cops away.

That has nothin' to do with this,
and I resent it.

I think you stink.
That's what it's got to do with it.

Hey, you. Just because I don't like you
does not mean I'm not gonna do my job.

Now gimme that tape. I'll send it over
to the lab and I'll have it checked out.

I want you to look at that film I made from
those photos. I think you'll get the idea.

But if we can get Karp's original film,
this gunshot'll be a lot clearer.

Karp is makin' a bundle
sellin' his pictures to magazines.

What makes you think
he'll give 'em to us?
