The standoff at the police station continues. Walter's mother arrives; it's HITG! Debra Mooney. Sars mentions that it's Edna from Everwood, which I wouldn't have known since I don't watch it. But I recognize her from many appearances on other shows. Toni tells Will she's Ruth Washington. Dude: the guy's name is Walter Washington? No wonder he's on edge. Mrs. Washington says, "He's a good boy. It's that Denise who's trouble." Will says they have to make sure Walter doesn't fire the gun or he'll end up in prison for the rest of his life: "Not to mention losing a woman and her baby." Mrs. Washington: "Baby?" She insists nobody believes what Denise says. Will tell Ruth he's not sure she's helping as much as she might be. Walter catches sight of her and calls out, "Mama?" He's moved a little farther away from his wife at that point, and at least a couple of cops must have had a clear shot at him, but they don't fire. He yells, "Mama, I need you!" She says she's here, and asks him to put the gun down before someone shoots him. Shouldn't she have been put in a bulletproof vest by now? Walter: "Tell them how it is, Mama! How she is! They don't understand!" Denise keeps struggling to get out of his grasp. She's rather stupid. All her struggling only makes it harder for a cop to pick him off without accidentally shooting her. Denise, who's not the greatest actor they've ever had on the show, hollers, "Look, I am carrying his baby!" Ruth: "Well, you might be carrying somebody's. Put it down, Walter, I am not gonna come visit you in no prison." Walter: "But you gotta make 'em listen, Mama!"
