Friedman, who's been watching from a distance, runs up to Luke: "Did you eject, dude?" Luke, without looking at his friend: "What?" Friedman: "The preemptive dump, protect your own skin because you knew it was only a matter of time " Luke bursts out, "It was just too much coming at me, all the time." Friedman: "Don't worry. I'll give her the shoulder she needs." I'll bet. He runs down the hall after Glynis. What a pal.
Roy and Will are being interviewed (by a television reporter) at the police station about the bust of the underage prostitution ring. They're doing this interview in the usual blue-grey light that dominates the police scenes. Why they don't seem to have the kind of lights on them that would usually be necessary for a videotaped interview, I can't tell you. I think it would have made this look more realistic. Anyway. The girls were being brought from Eastern Europe and held captive for six months. Will comments that nobody wants to believe anything that ugly is going on in their backyard, so they just ignored the odd behaviour related to the house. The reporter praises Will for having recognized something was wrong; Will's all, aw, shucks, just doing my job. The reporter suddenly asks Will about the fact that he was on psych leave after the kidnapping. Will doesn't care to talk about that. The reporter: "I'm just saying, that must make this so much sweeter, that you've had such an impressive comeback." Roy intervenes: "Detective Girardi never left us. He was on a temporary reassignment. We were never without him." Will says that's correct: "It actually was just a bureaucratic thing. You know what the guys upstairs are like. Obviously I'm pretty capable of being a police officer." Roy gives Will a look. The reporter agrees with Will, saying they're probably kicking themselves for ever taking Will off the street. Will, smugly: "I hope so!" They conclude the interview, and as their mikes are removed, Will asks Roy, "So, is it true? Camera adds twenty pounds?" Roy: "Yeah. To your head." He walks out.
