Does anyone still watch Third Watch? ["Did anyone ever watch Third Watch?" -- Wing Chun]
As Benton frantically makes more calls, Roger complains that there are too many names on the list at Reese's school -- ten, to be precise, which he feels is impossible for the personnel to track. Roger fears any stranger could walk up and claim he's an uncle. "Haven't had problems before," Benton says shortly. "Are you sure you got there on time?" Roger bellows, "Yes!" Spying something through the window glass, Benton sprints through the swinging doors and comes upon Reese and Jackie. "What are you doing here?" Benton barks. "Where were you?" He scoops up Reese and hugs him tightly. Jackie doesn't understand the commotion. She picked up Reese because he acted out at school, biting a little girl; Peter was in surgery, so they called Jackie and she left a message with Benton's voicemail. Then why didn't the folks at Reese's school relay this information? If Reese left for disciplinary reasons, an authority figure would've had to have pulled him aside and made the decision to release him and phone Peter. Whatever, ER. Roger informs Jackie that it was his day to pick up Reese, not Peter's. Jackie regards Roger blankly, wondering disdainfully why Roger is still pitching in with Reese. "We have dinner every Tuesday and Thursday," he tells her. Jackie softly tells Peter that Reese had three fights at recess this week. He tries to ask Reese about it, and of course Reese signs something that looks like a denial. Jackie also relays that the teacher wondered about problems at home. Again, wouldn't she know about Carla? Are we supposed to think Reese's school is so unforgivably ignorant? Roger bristles when Jackie repeats the teacher's suggestion that Reese needs more stability. So really, it's all Carla's fault for dying, which means it's Lisa Nicole Carson's fault for going insane. Great, okay. That's easy. "He wasn't getting in fights while he was living with us," Roger says defensively. Jackie sighs and says she was just repeating what the teacher told her. Benton muses that perhaps Reese should stick to a single home for a while. Roger freaks, citing their agreement and his love for his stepson. "Yeah, but we need to think about what's best for Reese," Jackie says coolly. She's all made up and sharp-looking, so I wonder if we're supposed to think she's regaining normalcy by treating Reese as her own. I hope this isn't heading down a Jackie-is-crazy path. Roger quite logically wonders whether Reese is acting out because he lost his mother, which seems pretty savvy to me, but Benton heads off any further discussion by remembering he needs to call the cops and call off the dogs. Jackie and Roger stare each other down for a second before we cut away.
