Sam has apparently settled on the "help someone else" part of Windy's solution, because we cut to him surreptitiously tailing Rose. And a dubious Skelton is along for the ride. "So are we going to follow her around all day?" Skelton wonders from the safety of Sam's orange muscle car. "Because the lieut would be pretty upset if he found out." Sam begs for Skelton's forbearance; after all, how many crimes are probably being committed in New York City at this moment? 5? 10? 20? Eleventy Hundred? Skelton pouts that this all could have been avoided if Sam hadn't thrown the money back in Casso's face. Sam reminds him that it was a bribe, but Skelton has moved on to more pressing matters. "She's kind of foxy," Skelton remarks of Rose. "Take it back, take it back! My mother is a saint!" Sam screams. Well, no. He just gets out of the car to avoid any more awkwardness involving his mom as the subject of the Hot Or Not game.
After popping out of the car, Sam flags down Rose, who is understandably concerned that this pop-eyed weirdo seems to be following her. Rose has other reasons to be suspicious -- a call to the 125th precinct revealed that there is no Detective Skywalker employed there. Sam suggests that perhaps his employment record has not yet been transferred from the ice planet of Hoth. Anyhow, we have more pressing concerns than Sam's true identity -- Profaci, who was going to give Rose three weeks to settle her accounts, is now giving her three days. "How am I going to come up with $1,000 in three days?" she demands. Well, are you handy with a deck of cards? No? Then, I have some bad news about how you're going to be spending the next three days. Sam assures her that everything's going to be all right. Rose responds by repeating that all she wanted to do was to give her son a normal life, with a dad who's home all the time. Sam notes that his mother raised him all by herself after his dad split, and the fact that he turned out OK is a tribute to his mother and all the sacrifices he made. Is it just me, or is it getting a little dusty in here? Anyhow, Sam reassures Rose that he's going to take care of this. When she turns to take her leave, we notice that her dry cleaning includes a red dress -- not unlike the red dress that we keep seeing in Sam's flashbacks, I would like to remind you.
