"Listen up you guys, something hinky is going on. We
all drink out of the same bottle, but I think there's a pigeon in the group. It puts us all behind the eight-ball. If we don't find the rat we'll all end up in bracelets with a free ride to the Hoosegow.  The smart thing is for everyone to fade and keep their yaps shut until the gum-shoe loses interest. So pin your diapers on, lay low and don't get made."
