HILL STREET BLUES "Buddy, Can You Spare a Heart?" (TV episode)
Washington and a sleazy accomplice set up a drug buy that goes wrong, leaving the cop facing a shotgun; Furillo and his new wife Joyce try to work out problems they're having with his son. (JBs plot continued from previous episode.)
T.J. (one persona) is a murderer.
The JB plot continues from the previous episode.
This is highly recommended-- wonderful acting, in a very intense role. The death scene is heart-wrenching.
Street person grunge, ripped shirt, black high-tops and stubble.
Carl suffers from multiple personality disorder, and the role contains many different characters. His face goes blank between personalities, and he does some touch, usually to head or face, as new persona arrives. T.J. goes berserk, breaks glass, growling, screaming, as he holds a roomful of cops at bay. Jimmy has lots of attitude, gestures. Carl (the basic personality) is relieved and grateful when others 'killed' before his death. We see Reggie, Franklin Butterbaugh, Jimmy, T.J., Pete, a kid, and Carl; others mentioned, not shown.
Joyce Davenport is his lawyer.
Carl jumps from a window. (Note: suicide is very common in cases of severe multiple personality disorder.) He doesnt die instantly, and has a chance to be grateful the other personalities are gone before he dies.
"Come and get him. He should be dead. I want you to kill him." (Other persona about T.J.)
"If you won't kill him, I will, I'll push him out."
"Is T.J. dead?"
"It's so quiet. They're all gone."
2 minutes, 30 seconds. in 3 scenes (first 2 are phone calls); 3rd is 45 minutes in.
