Dave finds a man is standing at his office window ledge. After casually greeting the man, Dave, after some trouble getting a phone, calls 911. Bill sees a major opportunity and decides to go out for an exclusive interview with the man. Joe helps him with his home-made climbing equipment and Bill goes out on the ledge. While Dave is the only one thinking about the safety of the two men, it turns out the man on the ledge wants to read a statement on the air. Otherwise, he'll jump. Written by Marco van Hoof <>
