I came down here to find a needle and thread, but I got waylaid.
There's a hole in my bag.
I thought I might try and repair it, but I couldn't find the sewing box.
Now... Do we have anything that can be used as a patch?
Do you have any idea what you're doing?
(chuckles) I hate it when you're angry with me.
Oh, I'm not angry with you.
Well, maybe just a little bit.
I've been getting myself into such a state.
I've been avoiding Barnabus not because I don't like him.
Just the opposite.
He's a kind, sweet man, and I've grown very fond of him.
So what's the problem?
I'm worried about where it might lead.
If we become man and wife.
I love living in this house.
Seeing you every day.
You're like a daughter to me, Lizzie.
I don't want that to change.
(sobs, exhales) Nothing will ever change that.
The truth is, I'm not sure I even want to wed. (exhales) As a girl, all I was ever told was, you would grow up, find a husband, have kids, and that would be your lot.
But seeing what you've done... Is this your way of telling me you want to become a private detective?
(laughs) You must do what is best for you.
Whatever that is, I will support you.
(sniffles) But only if you fix my bag for me.
(both laugh) I'll see what I can do.
Is there any more of that whiskey?
I'm afraid I've drunk most of it.
Something on your mind?
(sighs) I'm trying to decide between two courses of action, neither of which is desirable.
When you were a little girl... Oh, here we go.
When you were a little girl, if I gave you a choice of two things you didn't want to do, you always found a third.
♪ ♪ ♪ ♪ ELIZA: I found a bullet fired by Logan Cooper and compared it to one used in an armed robbery.
FITZROY: Is it the same gun?
I believe so.
Do you know where Phelps will be today?
He's got a case in court this morning, I imagine he'll be there.
Let me know if that changes.
Where are you going?
To see Nikos Galanis.
Make sure you meet him somewhere public.
Somewhere he can't harm you.
Don't worry, I have just the place.
And you're coming with me.
♪ ♪ (drivers urging horses, people talking in background) I have a proposal for you.
Where is my nephew?
Your message said he was to be released.
And he will be, if you accept my proposal.
I do not play games.
Michael is innocent, and I can prove it.
The robbery of the clock shop was carried out by an associate of yours, Tasos Demetrious.
How do you know that?
That's my business.
All you need to know is that I can get the charges against your nephew dropped.
And what do you want from me?
What makes you think I have him?
Well, if you don't now, you will do soon.
So do you want to hear my proposal or not?
(snorts softly) Logan Cooper was a suspect in the robbery at the Winchester Bank earlier this year, but the case against him collapsed.
But I now have concrete proof it was him.
Ballistics evidence showing that a gun Cooper owns matches with the gun discharged at the robbery.
If you turn him over to me, I'll have him delivered here to Scotland Yard.
And in return secure Michael's release.
I want Cooper to suffer for what he did.
Oh, he will suffer.
At least 15 years hard labor.
Hasn't there been enough death already?
♪ ♪ What do you want?
Michael Galanis is innocent.
You were paid to arrest him by his grandfather.
You work for me, son.
If you're thinking of trying to pull rank, I should probably tell you we know who your cousin is.
Failure to declare a connection to a wanted man is a dismissible offense.
However, I would like to propose a mutually beneficial arrangement.
We'll keep quiet about your cousin, and in return, you drop the charges on Michael Galanis.
I ain't no bent copper.
That's not what it looks like from here.
This is the first time I've ever taken money, and I've had offers, believe me.
But I've turned 'em all down.
You think we'll believe that?
I didn't grow up like you, posh boy.
I grew up with all sorts of toe rags-- Logan included.
They chose their path and I chose mine.
But I know right from wrong, despite what you might think.
Michael needed to be put away for his own good.
I'd have done it for free.
But you didn't.
I've put the money to good use.
This place will be a gymnasium.
A place where kids can come to get off the street.
A place where they can learn a bit of self-respect and discipline.
Kids like I was.
Needed a bit of guidance.

Well, he got what he wanted, in a manner of speaking.

Why else would I have chosen this career?
(chuckles softly) And you?
You're going to stick with it?

I wouldn't make a very good priest.

Congratulations to you both.
Well, that's very gracious of you.
Particularly given how I behaved last time we spoke.
Water under the bridge, Mr. Potts-- I am quite sure you didn't mean it.
I meant some of it.
Uh, but the manner in which it came across was a tad forceful.
Do you have a date for the wedding?
Not yet, no, there's plenty of time for that.
Well, not too much time.

Uh, we'll get that nearer the time.

Well, thank you.
