When Officer John Marboro of the Cleveland police department came out of the bathroom, forgetting to zip up, at Kerry's Bar on Oakwood Drive, Kerry told him that "Officer Marboro, Mr. Johnson is hanging out."
"What? There's a missing Johnson out? Let me get my notebook."
"No, officer, he's not missing. He's..ooh, you know?"
"Oh, he's an older man? Probably from one of the nursing homes. I see. How long?"
"I said, how long is he out there?'
"No more than 5, maybe 5 and a half, I'd say...."
"It's cold out there tonight. We better find him fast. That's pretty long for an old dude. I'll put out a "Missing Persons". Is he white?"
"I'd say so. But you see, Officer Marboro...."
"I see Miss Ingraham's working tonight. Ms. Ingraham..a word with you. Now, have you seen this Johnson?'
"I sure do."
"How long has he been out?"
"I don't know but he seems to be growing?"
"Growing? What's his first name, this Johnson?"
"Probably Peter, wouldn't you say so, Kerry?"
"If I ever got a word in.."
"Never mind people. Time is of the essence.! I better run."
"You'd better zip up Officer Marboro."
"That's a 10-4", zipping his jacket. "It's cold out there and Johnson't gonna freeze his nuggets off!"
"Oh, he'll do that all right..."
