Lydecker: Have detectives who buy portraits of murder victims a claim to privacy?...McPherson, did it ever strike you that you're acting very strangely?

Have you ever dreamed of Laura as your wife, by your side at the Policeman's Ball or in the bleachers?

McPherson: Why don't you go home? I'm busy.
