Reluctantly, she pulls out a hand-written report, neatly drawn up on yellow legal paper, then drops it with the map onto her lap. Napolitano turns west onto Sunset.

NAPOLITANO
Iíd like to do this without Larry.
CELESTE
Then youíre in luck, because God knows where he is. Iíve been calling him all night.

A passing streetlight briefly illuminates her face, revealing a look of vulnerability and desire.

CELESTE
Please come home with me, Russ. That house is so big without him.

She puts a hand on his knee. Napolitano keeps driving.
