Deb gets off the elevator and witnesses the current scene. As Quinn tells the guys to let him go, Deb runs over asking what the problem is. They let him go and Anton says, "This shit ain't over, man." Then, he walks out as Deb stands stunned. She asks Quinn if he's OK (he is) and she follows Anton outside. She catches him in the parking lot. He says that Quinn's punk ass deserved what he got and Deb says that he can't just walk into a police station and punch a cop. Seriously, truer words are rarely said. Anton is pissed because he thinks Deb is standing up for Quinn and she says that she is not the enemy. He reminds her that she lied to him and she confesses, but says that telling him what happened wasn't going to change anything. She also says that, sure, Quinn almost got him killed, but they wouldn't have found Anton without Quinn's help. He's lucky if Quinn doesn't press charges, she says. Oh yeah? That's pretty stupid, Deb. He replies that he could sue the whole department. She tries to calm him down by telling him she'll talk to Quinn. About what? Um, hi, Quinn. So, Anton's real mad. Promise not to illegally force him to work for you as an informant and endanger his life, not to mention give him poor self-esteem for making him believe that he has taken the absolute wrong path through life and he should have taken that gig as a drummer for that touring modern dance troupe and he'd be married to a German visual artist right now instead of staying in Miami to play with his band that's still gigging in coffee shops that convert to bars at night? Thanks. I'll let him know. He might still want to punch you one more time. He asks, rhetorically-ish, if she's not afraid of Quinn finding out and telling everyone that they're sleeping together. She says that he knows and he hasn't told anyone. And why is he bringing this up, she asks. He knows that Dexter didn't know about him. Also, she was pretty rude when she kicked him out of her apartment. She reminds him that she is thisclose to getting her shield and she's putting it all on the line to be with him. "Then why are you?" I don't like where this is going. He asks if she feels responsible for what happened to him and she doesn't answer. Of course she does, Anton! Because she cares about you!! There's a spot of blood on the back of Anton's shirt -- wait, did he get hurt recently? She tells him that he's going to need new stitches. No, what he needs, he says, is for her to think seriously about their relationship. Then, he walks away.
