MAIN TITLES PLAY OVER THIS SEQUENCE which culminates in a SHOT OF... CUT TO: PHILADELPHIA'S GLORIOUSLY ORNATE CITY HALL (EXT./DAY) ... A moment before it sinks in, then: Andrew clenches his fist in a victory salute. SEIDMAN You'll have to get right on it, Andy, we're up against the statute of limitations.
