UNDERSHERIFF DALLESANDRO
Mrs. Davis was kidnapped in Malibu -- thatís County jurisdiction.
CHIEF HOOVLER
I donít care if youíre the undersheriff of the entire Western hemisphere. Heís being held as a suspect in a North Hollywood murder -- and thatís City.
UNDERSHERIFF DALLESANDRO
Heís a material witness in my kidnapping. And even if he wasnít, heís the mayor, and thatís a conflict of interest within LAPD. County has superior jurisdiction, so we're invoking our inter-departmental agreement of 1952, Section One. We'll handle the Davis murder, and everything associated with it.

Napolitano barely disguises a satisfied smile. Off Hoovler's slow burn --

INT. UNDERSHERIFF'S CAR - DAY

Dallesandro and Napolitano share the huge back seat.

NAPOLITANO
Youíre taking me to Twin Towers?

Dallesandro pushes a button and a glass partition behind the driver goes up.

UNDERSHERIFF DALLESANDRO
Of course not.
NAPOLITANO
Then can I borrow your phone to call my office?

Dallesandro points to a phone concealed in the armrest, and Napolitano lifts the receiver.

NAPOLITANO
Where should my attorney meet me?
UNDERSHERIFF DALLESANDRO
You donít need an attorney yet. Just get ready for dinner.
NAPOLITANO
Dinner? Where?
UNDERSHERIFF DALLESANDRO
Hollywood. With Prefect Duvane.

Off Napolitano, grateful but unclear on Dallesandro's motive --
