David's Role:

David's part is very small in this one. He's in three scenes. He plays Ferret, a locksmith (or lockpicker, depending upon if you're a cop or a crook). He is called by Angel to help someone who locked his keys in the house. Later that house is robbed and Angel goes after him, but he insists he didn't do it and tells the cop to talk to someone else. The next night, Ferret shows up at the police station and tells Angel not to go after the robbers or else they'll kill him. Ferret is genuinely concerned.
