O' Halloran and the robo female cop cruise the streets of PsychoTown in his pink caddy.
"I'm glad that we've become a team, Detective. I honestly never believed that you could learn to accept a female - let alone a robotic one - into your life".
O' Halloran takes a turn off and drives down a quiet side street.
He stops the car and grabs the robo female cop by the throat.
"Listen here, you robotic monster. Cut the crap. I know your involved in this Alien plot to take over the world"
Robo female cop struggles to breath through her electronic windpipe and manages to break free.
"Have you gone fucking crazy, Detective?!!!!", she gasps for air, !"What the hell are you talking about?"
O' Halloran sees that she's genuinely frightened of him.
"I'm sorry. I didn't mean to….It's just that the seven-foot woman told me to look closer to home, and what with the helicopters and drama last night…I thought that you were involved in all this alien/murder stuff"
"I was built to serve and protect, Detective. I would never harm another human being. Never. How could you think such a thing?"
He looks into her robotic telescopic eyes and sees she's telling the truth.
"Damn….this is kinda….awkward…", he says as his cheeks go bright red in embarrassment, "this is almost as bad as the time I jumped naked out of Uncle Bert's birthday cake…"
A slight smile breaks across Robo female cop's lips. She starts to laugh.
"You jumped naked out of your uncle's cake?", she jibes.
O' Halloran nods. He doesn't mind being the butt of this joke if it means she'll forget about him choking her and ensures she doesn't remember to press charges down at the station later.
She fixes her hair and takes out a notepad and starts talking.
"Closer to home, huh? She meant somebody down at the station, right? So who else knows the details of the case?"
O' Halloran is taken by her sudden change. She really wants to help.
"Well, there's me, you, the lieutenant.."
"You don't think she meant the Lieutenant?", she asks.
"No. That would be too obvious even for a shitty story like this one"
"Who else then?"
"Well, there was the two uni's at the scene but they were just token characters created purely to set to the mood and tone and give me somebody to communicate with…"
O' Halloran breaks off, deep in thought.
"What is it, Detective?"
"Doc! The mortician. He knows all about the cases and he's the one who put me on to Jimmy Saville"
"But he appeared way back in chapter two. The readers probably can't even remember him. Besides that, what would he have to do with all the killing and other bullshit that's happening?"
"There's only one way to find out", O' Halloran arches his eyebrow, slams his foot on the accelerator and the car engine roars as they speed out of that alley - hitting a bunch of abandoned cardboard boxes neatly piled up along the way.
