Frank and Denice work at the same police precinct. They are divorced, and Denice has remarried Frank’s partner, Gruber. Frank drinks too much and lately has been going through a bad time; he’s been calling Denice at home at all hours, drunk. Denice has moved on, but Frank is stuck in his lonely life. Here Denice confronts him the day after a three-a.m. call. All day, Frank has been interviewing suspects and acquaintances of victims, trying to get a lead on a particularly elusive serial killer. This scene did not appear in the final film.
