Shirley busts all up in Ed's office and tells Ed and Doogie that Mr. Hector is here to see Ed. Ed tells Shirley to send him in, whereupon Shirley asks Ed in front of the Doogmeister why Ed never calls her "Shirl." Shirley points out that Laverne always called Shirley "Shirl," so why doesn't Ed call her "Shirl"? Ed is at a loss for words, but still manages to blurt, "Send him in, Shirl." Shirley gets a teeny weeny look of happiness on her face, and then ushers the guy in. Doogie loves the interaction between Ed and Shirley, calling Shirley "quirky as all get-out." It's been a while since I read the dictionary, but when did they change the meaning of "quirky" to "borderline psychotic"? Mr. Hector is shown into the office, and greetings are exchanged. Hector says that his neighbor has a big tree in his yard. A bunch of leaves from that tree have fallen into Hector's yard; he cleaned them up and now he wants $112 to pay for it. Ed rests a baseball bat on his shoulder as he listens intently. Doogie takes notes. This should come into play later. Could be a red herring, but I don't think so; baseball bats on shoulders -- that's some pretty serious stuff. Doogie blurts that this is home-spun justice at its finest. He apologizes immediately for being so damned chipper and cheerful. Ed tells Hector that he's got himself a lawyer, and Doogie turns to Hector and says, "Isn't he great?" As God as my witness, if they don't hurry up and give me a scene with Warren, I'm going to kick in my television set.
