Mike goes to check on Ellie. She's freaked out and says she's never told anyone about the night her boyfriend died. "You watched him die?" said Mike. "I'm fine," says Ellie, "And this isn't the time to play 'open up Ellie.'" Mike insists that he's not prying, and offers to take her home. She says yes. Mike's thinking, "Cool! I'm scoring with her!"
Diner. Mitzi and Hazel, Round Two. "Okay, I've rehearsed this whole thing, and I've got to say it," says Mitzi. Hazel's like, "Whatever." Mitzi says that she knows Hazel's sorry about the affair and that she herself should be moving on. "But I loved my husband," says Mitzi. "And he loved you, too," says Hazel. "I know that," says Mitzi. "See, what I can't quite wrap my head around is that maybe, quite possibly" -- she starts crying -- "he might have loved you, too...and if I accept your apology, that means I'll have to accept that, and I may never be ready to do that...do you understand? Does that make any sense?" Dude, yeah, except this whole scene kicks way too much ass for this show. Go, Mitzi. Mitzi and Hazel come to some kind of agreement. Sam and Zane are sitting nearby, and they've seen the whole thing, and they're like, "Yay! Our moms aren't spitting at each other anymore!"
Police station. The deputy guy is playing with the cool hydraulic pump thingy and watching the chair jump around. You could really watch that chair all day. I think the producers need to consider that the next time they retool the show. At the very least, they need a spin-off: Dorothy Man and Jumpy Chair. It would be a buddy-cop show, and Jumpy Chair would get all the chicks. Anyway, while the deputy is mesmerized by Jumpy Chair, Ma McNeil comes up and bashes him over the head with a bottle. He falls over, and she takes his gun. Soon Mike, Ellie, and Rudy come out, and she's waving the gun at them. Ma McNeil's like, "Nobody believed me before when I confessed, boo hoo," and in her own mousy way, she threatens to kill them all. Robbie comes out and yells at his mom to stop. "I was faking it! It was an act! It was all an act!" he yells. Mike -- who knows from last week's episode that gun-wielding killer soccer moms are easily distracted -- picks up the remote cable that operates Jumpy Chair. Jumpy Chair jumps, and Ma McNeil completely freaks and shoots the hell out of it. Oh man, it hurts to see Jumpy Chair take the fall. Mike tackles Ma McNeil quite spectacularly, takes her down, and subdues her. And now, the moment you've been waiting for: tonight, the lucky recipient of the randomly-fired- bullet-that- punctuates-the- show's-climax is...Robbie's hand! Cingular Wireless congratulates Robbie's hand as the winner of this week's Reckless Ballistics Challenge!
