Detective Phelps: Hello. Detective Phelps. Here to interview a Jessica Hamilton.
Nurse: Jessica Hamilton. Oh yes, she's in the room right behind you, Detective.
Woman 1: You can't hold me here! No! I don't need to be manhandled by a doctor. I need my lawyer!
Detective Phelps: Feeling better since this morning, Jessica?
Woman 1: Hey! Where is the telephone?
Jessica: A little. My head still feels swimmy.
Woman 1: Do you know who I am?
Detective Phelps: Hello, Jessica. My name is Cole Phelps. I'm a policeman. I'd like to talk to you about your accident, if that's okay?
Detective Phelps: Can you tell me what you remember about the crash?
Jessica: It's all kind of fuzzy. I remember waking up here. Nothing happened yesterday.
Man 1: Are you feeling better?
Detective Phelps: Tell the truth, Jessica. Why the big cover-up?
Jessica: I'm not lying to you.
Woman 2: Do you think you can manage a little [inaudible 00:01:50]?
Detective Phelps: We found your underwear in your handbag, Jessica. You need to tell us what happened.
Jessica: The doctor told me what happened. I didn't want that. I just wanted to be a star, to be in movies. I told Junie what happened, and she told me toughen up. That that was the price of stardom.
Detective Bekowsky: Did she now? That cold-hearted bitch...
Jessica: It's Junie's fault. It's not my first time. I had a boyfriend back home. But my father found out about him.
Detective Phelps: Even if you consented, Jessica, you're still underage.
We need to get in touch with your parents, Jessica. To tell them what has happened.
Jessica: Oh, you don't need to worry them. They sent me along to stay with Aunt June. They trust her to take care of me.
Detective Phelps: You're lying, Jessica. How are we going to make this right if you lie to us?
Jessica: Please, Detective. Why would I lie to you?
Detective Phelps: Because you're a runaway, Jessica, and you don't have your parents' permission to be here. Now, do you want to tell me what really happened?
Jessica: I went with Junie to this strange place . . . It's difficult to remember. Someone gave me a drink to calm my nerves, and then I felt faint. I think I must have passed out.
Detective Phelps: How did you meet Mr. Bishop?
Jessica: Well, Junie is a big movie star. You probably know that. She's doing a new movie.
Detective Phelps: What's the story with Bishop and Mrs. McAfee? Why does he want the two of you dead?
Jessica: That can't be true. Mr. Bishop seemed very happy today . . . I mean, yesterday.
Detective Phelps: And that's why he wedged a shrunken head against the accelerator pedal and punted the two of you over an escarpment?
Jessica: I overheard Junie speaking to him on the phone a couple of times. Screaming, really. She can be very hard sometimes, Junie. But they seemed okay yesterday . . . like they worked it out.
Detective Phelps: I know what happened to you, Jessica. Where exactly did it take place?
Jessica: Please, it's scary. It's really difficult to think of anything.
Detective Phelps: Jessica, I really need you to help me here.
Jessica: I remember the mermaid.
Detective Phelps: Was the mermaid in the movie too?
Jessica: No, it was on the front of a building. We pulled up in front of the mermaid.
Detective Phelps: Thank you, Jessica. You've been a big help. Here is my card. If you think of anything or need some help, just get in touch, okay?
Detective Phelps: I think it might be a good idea if you went back home till you felt better, Jessica.
Jessica: I couldn't do that, Officer. What if I got the part and I wasn't there?
Woman 3: Do you think you could manage a little [inaudible 00:05:10]?
Detective Bekowsky: It's the tale of this town, Cole. Lambs that go willingly to slaughter. Who the hell is that?
Detective Phelps: Must be her lawyer. He certainly expedited her release.
Detective Bekowsky: I don't like it, Cole. Why's she in such a hurry? We should follow her.
There she goes. Come on.
