At the station, Deb is in Dexter's office and telling him, with intensity, that Quinn just proposed to her. She says to Dexter that she never said to Quinn that she wanted to spend the rest of her life with him. Geez, she's hardcore. Dexter says that he takes Deb's response as a "no." He also VO's that Quinn will be uncle to his son over his dead body. Deb says her answer is a maybe and that he makes her happy. That last part is said more as a question. Dexter points out that the vein in her forehead contradicts the "happy" part. She says that she and Quinn get along well and there's no drama, which, after the last few years, is great for her. But...she's not sure that drama-free is at the top of her must-have list. She asks why things can't just stay the same and Dexter looks at a picture of a tiny Harrison and says, "Tell me about it."
Deb and Dex are on their way to a briefing and we see Masuka showing a video of Deb's restaurant heroics to other cops from his phone. He tells them that the video already has half a million hits. Deb is the new Ryan Gosling! Deb walks up and the guys start applauding her. She's all "Yeah, yeah" and Masuka says that she's an Internet sensation. Quinn tells him to give it a rest and Masuka asks if she has read the comments about her online. She has and believes that Masuka was responsible for a poem about her ass. He denies involvement but points out that it was a limerick. This just feels tired. I feel as if I've written about this scene like seven times before. So, to make things feel a little fresh and to offset the existential crisis that is likely to occur from being bored stiff while writing about a serial killer (I mean, seriously, if that doesn't keep you at least engaged, what else is there? Mole people? OK, maybe mole people), I'm going to take this time to describe, with excruciating detail, the stuff in this scene that we're really not being asked to pay attention to. Like Quinn's tan. Now, Desmond Harrington is an attractive guy. In fact, in other settings, say Gossip Girl, he's downright pretty. So, it's sad, but entirely appropriate that they make him look like sort of a schmuck on this show. The ill-fitting clothes, the gold chain, the tan. THE TAN. This is why we stay out of the sun, folks. I'm looking at Michael C. Hall and Harrington in freeze frame standing next to each other and Harrington looks like he has a good 6 to 9 years on Hall, when, in fact, my trusty resource IMDB.com tells me that Hall is nearly 6 years older than Harrington. A difference of 12 to 15 years! Officially! It's like he's Lindsay Lohan. Anyway, props to the team that made these choices. They really work for the character, in my opinion. Deb's shirt is gingham. I have the same material in a shirt of mine, though it's not quite as fitted. I wonder what Deb's tailoring bills are. Girl likes herself a fitted shirt. Masuka is wearing a red and white patterned shirt that would make a lovely couch. In fact, I tried to buy that couch a few years ago but was vetoed. Only one of the extra cop guys is wearing a tie. He's the only one wearing a tie in the room and he's wearing it as if he wears one every day. I wonder what could be different about his job that requires him to wear a tie when no one else does. Or maybe he just has this ethic thing about wearing one and wears it even though it makes him stand out. I wonder if it makes the other cops suspicious of him or if it makes him a joke. I wonder if he eats lunch alone. I wonder if he carried a briefcase in high school.
