Coffee and Ice-TSTABLER and BENSON enter the station with big smiles on their faces. MUNCH looks up from his desk as they walk past him, and then he looks back down again with indifference.MUNCH: Where have you two been?STABLER: Oh you know, here and there.MUNCH: You're late.STABLER and BENSON ignore MUNCH.

How about that French toast?MUNCH: (Interested) French toast?BENSON: (To STABLER) I swear I've never had anything like it.STABLER: (Nodding his head in agreement.)

What Gave You That Idea?I got out of the shower the other day, dripping wet with soap stinging my eyes. Not soap really, shampoo. That always happens to me, I can't seem to learn how to wash my hair without getting shampoo in my eyes......Anyway, I got out of the shower (wincing and dabbing my eyes with my towel). Then I heard something come from behind the bathroom door. It sounded like somebody else was inside my apartment. My heart beat faster, and I wrung the towel in my hands nervously. I slipped on my silk robe and opened the bathroom door. A tall man with tan skin and dark hair jumped at the sight of me. I screamed.

HumphI forced my lips into a smile,And tried to make my eyes do the same.But failed, leaving them dark inside.You saw the truth hiding behind the lies,And asked me one more time."Are you sure you're OK?Is there nothing I can do?"I tried again to reignite the spark,But the flame wouldn't catch.The smile left my lips.So I simply replied'I told you, I'm fine,I just need some space'Hoping that you would get the hintWhich I placed within my words.Unfortunately you missed the signs completely,Attempting to interfere again"I just think you need some help,There could be a way to stop it..."Oh how I wish there wasBut there isnt.'Really, I'm Fine, just leave me alone,I'll work it out myself OK?'She'd never buy that,Especially with the desperation in my voice.But anything's worth a try."No not OK! It's what you always say!It's never true, I'm not sure it ever will be!"'This time it is, I promise, I'll be OK!'I noticed your eyes as you glanced at your watch,"Look, I have t
