Hacienda Del Whack Job. Jo-Jo The Sack-Faced Boy and Speedle wander in to find Spineless, Smirky, and a couple of other students lounging around in the professor's dining room. To Jo-Jo The Sack-Faced Boy's immense irritation, Professor Whack Job had an open-door policy, and all of his students have keys to his home. They'd type up his research for him or handle his dry-cleaning. That sort of thing. Smirky claims some sort of teacher-student privilege regarding their dealings with Professor Whack Job, eliciting a delightfully contemptuous sneer from Speedle. Smirky also scores a bit of a coup by snatching the scene's final line away from Jo-Jo The Sack-Faced Boy. "We were all really close," Smirky claims. I bet she's doing Caruso.
In the professor's study, Jo-Jo The Sack-Faced Boy and Speedle dither with a trash can full of shredded paper before stumbling across Professor Whack Job's torture cabinet. I spy a chastity belt and an iron face mask, along with several pointy things. Oh, leave me alone. Like I know from medieval torture tools. You should be happy I recognized the chastity belt from my costuming classes at college. Oh, yes -- we did cover chastity belts in costuming class at Northwestern, and anyone who tells you otherwise is lying. Horatio -- wait for it -- gets the last line. "Nice," he sneers. "Very nice." I bet Smirky's in for a surprise when she hits Caruso's condo tonight.
Morgue. "Jade," an autopsy underling ["and a possible shout-out to the assy Caruso vehicle of the same name" -- Sars], slides the rancid, bloated car corpse into an MRI-type machine so Alexx can determine the gentleman's cause of death. Whoever filmed this bit has a thing for Khandi Alexander's lips, by the way. Especially when they're pressed close to something phallic like a microphone. Alexx instructs Jade on proper corpse positioning through said microphone from a nearby room. The TMICam takes us through layers of scalp to reveal, as Alexx puts it, a "circular fracture of the cranial vault." In other words, Rancid Man got bonked on the head. Token finds this intriguing.
