Dexter's reaction is...well, it's certainly not as enthusiastic as mine. "Whoa." "Trick or treat!" "You look great. Who are you?" Dude! I guess you've been too busy murdering to pay attention to anything ever, because...really? Really? "Lara Croft?" she says. "Tomb Raider!" "Ah," says Dex, still not getting it. "You raid tombs dressed like that?" Heh -- okay, fair enough. It seems that Rita is "sick of Snow White." I see. And I like-y! After a little banter about her "errand" earlier that afternoon, she plants a big old kiss on our leading man. "It felt so good rescuing that dog." "You upset your neighbor." "Fuck her." Hell yeah! Fuck her right in the ear! Way to go, Rita! Anyway, she says she imagines he deals with people like her neighbor all the time, and he responds, "Worse." "Is that why you haven't been yourself lately?" He tells her that he's got a case he can't get out of his mind, and she offers to help...with a raging blowjob! Woo hoo! As she heads south of the border towards Dexter's, uh, downtown bonanza, he asks, "What are you doing?" "Whatever I want," she answers, and smiles, and is the cutest thing ever. I could eat her for breakfast. You'd think now would be a good time for Dexter to shut the fuck up and enjoy the moment, but no. He just has to voice-over. "I've come to enjoy the comfortable moments with Rita. The easy, quiet moments. This? Might be better." Right. "Might be." Trust me, Dex. It's better. Jeez.
Over at the station, Deb is still watching the surveillance tapes as Angel comes in, dressed to the nines and wearing a zoot suit that actually looks pretty sharp. "Where's your brother?" he asks Deb, to which she replies, "I'm not his keeper." Heh. He pulls out yet another piece of jewelry and asks her opinion. It's a diamond-encrusted key necklace. "It's a key to my heart. You see, it's a key, that's also shaped like a heart. I'm not gonna take it back." "It's perfect, Angel. She'll love it," says Deb. The relief on his face is instant. "Really?" "I would." Aw, Deb. He asks her how he looks, and she responds with a couple of "Woo"s and "Mmm"s, and the whole scene is pretty damn cute. Angel's awesome, and I guess Deb can be, too, sometimes. It was nice of her to see what he was fishin' for and just give it to him.
