At the station, Little Tony leeringly tells Kate that if he'd known how bad she wanted him, he'd have let her catch him sooner. Kate responds, "If I'd known how badly you needed the exercise, I might have let you run a little longer." Ho hum, blipvert. Little Tony contacts the Evil Lawyers of Doom at Wolfram & Hart. The rather young-looking lawyer pulls out a fax with information about Kate on it and says he'll take care of the problem. Moments later, lawyer-boy submits a petition to have Little Tony moved to a different precinct "for his own safety." The lawyer mentions the "unknown assailant" they believe was working with Kate. Kate tells her lieutenant she doesn't know who the other person was. Little Tony says he saw Kate talking to him. Kate cleverly tries to change the subject, asking "Was that before or after you murdered Supervisor Caffrey, you fat piece of --" before the lawyer cuts her off. The lawyer threatens them some more, saying that the public will be given a view of "the brutality and callousness of this police force that will make Mark Fuhrman look like Gentle Ben." That's O.J. reference number four, if you're keeping score. Also: "Gentle Ben"? Memo to WB: Keep the pop culture references to shows that aired within your target audience's lifetime.
Cordy babbles about how nice it was to have "a simple crime-lord case," while Angel pours himself a cup of coffee to brood over. "Wait. You've got pensive-face," she says, getting up from behind the desk. Angel says that he always has pensive-face, so Cordy amends her statement to "pensiver-face." Angel says that he's still worried about Little Tony, and that he has a bad feeling about the situation, while Cordy slides her feet around on the floor. Cordy finally says, "I just find it endlessly fascinating how your instincts are so highly attuned when it comes to boring old evil, but you have yet to make any mention of these new shoes." Angel stammers, "Look, Cordelia, women's shoes...men..." Just then Doyle enters and immediately remarks, "Great shoes! New?" Cordy whaps Angel on the shoulder. Doyle, desperate to prove that he does serve some purpose on this show, tells them that, according to one of his sources, Little Tony is planning something. Angel asks for more information, but that's all Doyle knows. "I thought he might be planning something," nods Angel. "See? You were right," says Doyle.
