Lundy walks into the BHB room, and Deb asks him how his "social appointment" went. "Oh, you know." Actually, I don't think she does, that's why she's asking. Not caring, Deb says, "I took your advice." "My advice?" "To get out and have some fun? Got laid, big time." Ha! Okay, that's fucking funny. That's the Deb I've been missing: the same one who totally dorked out in front of the mirror last season while listening to Eric Carmen. Lundy probably doesn't love that Deb, because he just says, "Oh. Well." Embarrassed, Deb is all, "I mean, I don't usually just go to the gym and pick up strangers." "The gym!" says Lundy, and they both share a laugh. "Really, you have to save me, here, or I'm going to go outside and shoot myself." "Well, the way you're going, you'd probably miss. My date? Was horrible. I picked her up, and I don't know Miami, so I got us completely lost, and she was chattering away the whole time about some yogi master I just have to meet, so by the time we even got to the restaurant, I was tearing my hair out." So on, so forth. Lundy says the whole thing reminded him that he shouldn't be dating. "Of course you should be," says Deb, confused. "No, it comes down to simple mathematics. A really beautiful relationship is a once-in-a-lifetime thing, and I've already had mine." Oh, I see. So now we have to care about your life, too? Jeez.
In the lab, Dexter grabs Masuka: "Hey, I heard you found some algae that might help crack the big case?" "You heard right!" says Vince, excited to geek out. "What kind of algae?" "Diatoms. Eukaryotic algae." "Okay, this is the first time I regret not being a bigger nerd," Dexter VOs, and...heh. "Eukaryotic?" Masuka tells Dex the marine biologist, Manny, can explain it when he comes down. "He's picking up the evidence tomorrow so he can study it in his own lab. You know marine biologists: real prima donnas." Yeah, those wacky marine biologists and their desire to...do things correctly? Pascal, looking distraught, calls Masuka: "Up front!" "Oh, no, it's that crazy witch," Vince utters under his breath, and goes over to her. "What is this shit?" she asks him as everyone looks on. "I told you to find a smell. It smells like another woman. I can smell it, why can't you!" She throws a file at him, and he just stands there. "This man is ruining my life, and you all go on like nothing is happening!" Everyone's afraid to make eye-contact with her, but LaGuerta goes up and comforts her, then escorts her to her office. "This is the kind of thing that makes me glad I have no feelings," VOs Dex. Amen, brother. "Like I always say, never take your dirty laundry to work."
