    Hooker and Romano get a call of a screamer early in the morning. They find a dead girl who supposedly jumped off a roof. She was pumped full of drugs. Hooker believes maybe she was pushed off because there was not alot of blood(meaning she was already dead and her blood wasn't pumping at a regular rate). Later on at the station Hooker argues with Captain Sheridan. Sheridan wants Hooker to not cause him trouble. He wants him to do what he says so he can restore the image at that precint. Hooker tells him he will do what he has to do. We cut to a scene with the drug dealers and the doctor who supplies them the drugs. They want to keep pushing and going ahead and the doctor is a little reluctant. Hooker interrogates another young kid who was busted for drugs. He tries to get his contacts. He tells him a man named Falco is a pusher but he does not know the suppliers name. Hooker goes to visit his ex Fran and his daughter Kathy. Kathy knew the dead girl named Jenny. She saw her being hasseled at school by two guys. Kathy agrees to help him. Hooker also finds a witness who was married and fooling around, so he did not want to get involved. They take him to the school and he identifies the pushers. They run as Hooker comes for them. They grab his daughter and run. They dump his daughter and make for a car. Hooker jumps on the car and Romano chases them. They finally stop them and Hooker tells the guy to "resist arrest, please! The guy does nothing. Then they find the doctor involved and they arrest him also. Another great epsidode here. This is the onlt episode where I remember Hooker having a teenage daughter.moreless

  • QUOTES (4)

    • (after apprehending the bad guys)
      Hooker: Resist arrest, resist arrest! Please!

    • Hooker: Most officers carry a .38, mister. I prefer this: double-action .357 Magnum loaded with hollow points. It'll tear a six-inch hole in you going in, and the Holland Tunnel coming out. You wanna try me?

    • Sheridan: You step out of line, just once, and I'll make sure that you're nailed with a lot more than just a suspension.
      Hooker: Dennis! I'll do my best not to rain on your P.R. parade.

    • Hooker: You know the definition of a conservative? A liberal who got mugged.

  • NOTES (1)
