English to Spanish translations [Non-PRO] / Film: Bullit
English term or phrase:nail, write off
Mr. Chalmers asked Lt. Bullit to look after his witness, Johnny Ross. He failed, and Ross was shot, and finally died in the hospital. Bullit has taken the corpse away, because he doesn't want Chambers to close the case yet: he wants to find out who killed Ross.
Chambers goes to the hospital together with another cop, Captain Baker, and nobody can tell him where Ross is, so he calls Bullit and asks him, but he doesn't tell him, so he says to Bullit on the phone:
-Captain Baker would like to have a word with you.
