Friedman walks through the hall, massaging his wrist. Luke ambushes him, asking, "Hey! So, now that we're not in mixed company what's up with your hand?" Man, Luke is just dying to know. Me, not so much. Friedman says it's "early stages carpal tunnel." Luke: "From what?" Friedman: "Dude, let's just say, the bra strap doesn't unhook itself." Luke -- along with the rest of humankind -- is incredulous: "You got carpal tunnel from unhooking a bra?" Oy. And this girlfriend, she didn't die of complete and utter boredom while you struggled to the point of a repetitive strain injury? Luke's scientific mind naturally resists this nonsense: "You'd have to do it, like, 10,000 times!" Friedman claims it's more to do with the degree of strain than the number of repetitions. Luke: "Well, how much strain could there be?" Friedman assumes that "you mental midget" tone as he says, "We're talking about the one-handed bra strap release. The triple hook's the heavyweight division of bra straps." Luke still doesn't seem to grasp the physics Friedman's driving at, so Friedman elaborates: "Once the first two hooks are undone, the pressure exerted on the final hook could crush a bird's neck. It's physics: force, gravity mass " Frink: "Bozons " Friedman: "And it's all concentrated on the tip of the index finger. So if the price is a little carpal tunnel I say bring it." As Friedman takes off, Luke kind of lists toward the wall, thrown off-balance by this astonishing revelation.
Toni and Will are staking out the motel where the sting's going down. They're in a van outside watching everything on camera, along with a guy who I guess is the A/V technician. I think he might be a H!ITG!. Toni bets five bucks the guy will back out before sealing the deal. She clearly wants to believe that. They argue about whether this guy will go through with it. A/V Tech contributes, "Now, nailing hookers: that's fun." I presume he means "running successful sting operations on prostitutes," but I suppose you can take it any way you like. Will thinks any rational function this guy has left has been destroyed by his jealousy (the guy's wife cheated on him). A/V Tech: "Course, we always bust the hookers just when the video starts getting interesting." Who is this guy -- Friedman's uncle? Toni: "You're a pig, Jerry." Jerry couldn't care less. They watch Carlyle and the perp agree to exchange funds tomorrow. Will holds his hand out to Toni: "I'll take singles."
