  • If it's about the case, I can't do that, and you know it.

  • Please, I just need a minute.

  • Shit. What about surveillance of the parking lot?

  • They're saying that footage is gone.

  • Then they're definitely hiding something.

  • But I can't prove it. And if I don't get something, I can't move forward with this case.

  • Listen, Oliver, like I said, I can't discuss this case. But what I can tell you is that if you can convince someone that you already have something, that's the best way to get them in the room.

  • Good not talking to you, Mike.
