Chief James E. Davis:
Captain, your handling of the Christine Collins case has exposed this department to public ridicule. There is even the possibility of civil and criminal liability.
Capt. J.J. Jones:
Sir, nobody could've known what was happening up at that ranch. Not us, the sheriff's department, or the marshal's office, and as for the Collins woman, I'm still not convinced that her boy is among the victims up in Wineville.
Chief James E. Davis:
No?
Capt. J.J. Jones:
No. There were four other photos of missing boys that looked a lot like him. The Clark kid could've been mistaken.
Chief James E. Davis:
Maybe he was, which begs the obvious question: Who cares?
Capt. J.J. Jones:
Sir?
Chief James E. Davis:
The mayor wants this to go away. I want this to go away! The way you do that is stop insisting that Walter Collins is not among those boys killed up at that goddamn ranch! Because if the boy you brought back is not Walter Collins and he's not dead up at that ranch, then where the hell is he? People are going to want to know why we haven't found him, why we're not doing our job! But if, on the other hand, he is, or could be, among those poor boys killed up in Wineville, then the inquiries stop.
[pause]

Chief James E. Davis:
It's a momentary embarrassment you're just going to have to live with. Better a short inconvenience than a lingering problem, wouldn't you say, Captain?
Capt. J.J. Jones:
Yes, sir.
Chief James E. Davis:
The boy's been gone nearly a year. If he was going to be found, it would have happened by now. Whether he was up at that ranch or not, the truth is he probably is dead somewhere. Better his mother accept that now than later, don't you think?
Capt. J.J. Jones:
Yes, sir.
Chief James E. Davis:
Good. That'll be all, Captain.

Captain, your handling of the Christine Collins case, has exposed this department to public ridicule. There is even the possibility of civil and criminal liability. Sir, nobody could've known what was happening up at that ranch. Not us, the sheriff's department, or the marshal's office. And as for the Collins woman, I'm still not convinced that her boy is among the victims up in Wineville. No? No. There were four other photos of missing boys that looked a lot like him. The Clark kid could've been mistaken. Maybe he was. Which begs the obvious question. Who cares? Sir? The mayor wants this to go away. I want this to go away. The way you do that is to stop insisting that Walter Collins is not among those boys killed up at that goddamn ranch. Because if the boy you brought back is not Walter Collins, and he's not dead up at that ranch, then where the hell is he? People are gonna want to know why we haven't found him. Why we're not doing our job. But if, on the other hand, he is or could be among those poor boys killed up in Wineville, then the inquiries stop. It's a momentary embarrassment you're just gonna have to live with. Better a short inconvenience than a lingering problem, wouldn't you say, Captain? Yes, sir. The boy's been gone nearly a year. If he was going to be found, it would've happened by now. Whether he was up at that ranch or not, the truth is he probably is dead somewhere. Better his mother accept that now than later, don't you think? Good. That'll be all, Captain. That's how you want it, then I guess we're done here. Tell county jail we're remanding him for trial. I didn't do anything. I wasn't even here when it happened. By pretending to be Walter Collins, you're interfering in a police investigation of a kidnapping and murder. We can try you as accomplice to that murder after the fact. That's too bad. County jail is a lot worse than a juvenile hall or a foster home. It's a lot worse. You can't do that. I'm just a kid. Sanford Clark's a kid, too. Fifteen. He's going to jail. All murderers and their accomplices go to jail. Everybody knows that. Get him out of here. It's out of my hands now. Wait. I don't want to go to jail. Prove it. I... I knew Los Angeles is where they make the Tom Mix movies. I figured if I could meet Tom Mix maybe he would let me ride on his horse. His horse is named Tony. Did you know that? How are you feeling? Alright. The police still have a car outside. I guess, they're waiting to see what your next move is going to be. I'm going home. And then? Then, I've been giving it a lot of thought. And... what they did to those women, and what they did about Walter. I used to always tell him, You never start a fight, but you always finish it. And I didn't start this fight but... I'm gonna finish it. Mrs. Collins, right now you're a sufficiently high profile that I think even the police would hesitate to go after you out in the open, but I have to warn you that could change very quickly if they feel their position threatened. Very quickly indeed. What are they gonna do to me now? They got nothing. I'm going home. Hi, sis. Gordon. I didn't know you were back in town. Yeah, I got in a couple of days ago, figured I'd... surprise you. Is that ok? Yes. Yes, of course. Of course, come on in. Where. Where's that little niece of mine? She went into town. Should be back this evening. Bob's here. Good. I was gonna ask if I could stay on a couple days.
