Hamilton: Perry, I...
Perry: Yes, Hamilton?
Hamilton: Well, what I was going to say, Perry... Della and Paul, too. My thought was... you tell 'em, would you, Lieutenant?
Della: What was that all about?
Drumm: The District Attorney wanted me to tell you that he made a reservation at Clay's Grill and would like very much to have you all for dinner this evening as his guests.
Della: Why didn't he just tell us?
Drumm: You know Hamilton Burger. This is about as close as he'll ever get to an apology.
Perry: It seems to me the place to start is at the beginning.
