Check out part 2 of this L.A. Noire walkthrough and beat "Slip of the Tongue" with this online demo.


Captain Gordon Leary: Phelps, Bekowsky..beat cop says he located a green Kaiser Frazer from the hot sheet. Address is 6 West Second Street. Get over there and see what you can find out. Go on! Sorry to inconvenience you.

Phelps: We're on it captain.

I swear the more bent cars we bring in, the longer the hot sheet gets.

Bekowsky: It pays the rent though. Keeps Mrs. Phelps int the manner to which she's accustomed.

Phelps: I'm not sure she'd agree with you.

Bekowsky: Passionate, romantic type like you, Cole? I don't believe a word of it.

Man 1: That's the guy. I hear he's an honest cop. That's an oxymoron for ya.

Phelps: You drive. I need to go over the case notes.

Bekowsky: They're calling her the Dahlia now. Wonder what Veronica Lake makes of that one.

Phelps: What a case. You hear whether they're making any progress?

Bekowsky: Captain Donnelly seems to think they have it all wrapped up. Brown and Green are sweating this Manley character. I heard it will be in front of a grand jury by next week.

Phelps: Poor thing. Terrible enough being murdered like that without having your death strewn all over the front pages.

Bekowsky: That's the car, Cole, just pulling out of the drive. Get him! Remember, we need him healthy enough to answer questions.

Phelps: 12 47, Detective Phelps, requesting immediate backup. In pursuit of a stolen green Kaiser Frazer from 6 West Second Street.

Lay into his wheel arches, come on!

Suspect: All right! All right! Maybe I was a couple miles over the speed limit!

Phelps: Show me your hands! Out of the car now!

Bekowsky: Get bracelets on him Phelps. I'll call it in.

Phelps: Why did you run from us?!

Suspect: I saw a big car in my rear view mirror with two tough guys bearing down on me. What would you do?

Phelps: What's your name?

Suspect: Cliff Harrison.

Phelps: You're under arrest.

Cliff Harrison: For what? What are you talking about?

Phelps: Nice try. I'm talking about the car being stolen.

Cliff Harrison: You're outta your mind. I bought the car and I've got the paperwork to prove it.

Phelps: Looks like we'll have some questions for the people at Coombs Automotive.

You purchased this car from Coombs Automotive Company?

Cliff Harrison: Yeah. That's right.

Phelps: And the ownership papers?

Cliff Harrison: Are from the same place.

Phelps: If this is a forgery, it's top notch. This'll need to be traced.

You have a criminal record Mr. Harrison?

Cliff Harrison: No! Nothing like that.

Phelps: You better give us something Cliff, or we're gonna make this hard on you.

Cliff Harrison: I didn't steal the car... I ran because..because I've got some wacky backy in the glove compartment.

Phelps: How much Cliff?

Cliff Harrison: One reefer.

Phelps: We'll let it slide. You're in enough trouble. Who did you deal with at Coombs Automotive?

Cliff Harrison: The owner. Richard Coombs.

Phelps: And he made out the bill of sale personally?

Cliff Harrison: Of course he did! He kept a facsimile for his records. Check with him.

Phelps: We're going to get to the bottom of this, Harrison. Until we do, you're going Downtown.

Cliff Harrison: You got to be kidding me! I'm getting arrested for buying a goddamn car!

Bekowsky: If everything is legit, Harrison, you'll be out soon. Until then if I were you I'd keep my mouth shut.

Phelps: Bag his possessions as evidence and have him arraigned for grand theft auto.

Cop 1: Right detective.

Cliff Harrison: Do you know who my father is?

Phelps: We need to get to Coombs Auto and check out Harrison's story. Can you drive to this one?

Bekowsky: Fine. Where are we headed?

Phelps: You know what? I think he's telling the truth.

Bekowsky: Some of the most convincing people you will ever listen to are born liars. Usually they're called politicians.
