Motor City Murders
Stone gets on the phone with Pooch, casually throws out some names like Chicklet and Lil'D as references, one resonates and they make a meeting plan. Sanchez looks positively smitten. At the meeting spot, they stake out the criminal, but a local cruiser makes the criminals run. Chasing on foot ensues. Just like an episode of COPS. Washington takes down Pooch, or at least a young man who has that tattooed on his neck. But just as he's about to take him back to the car, his "Baby Love" ring goes off. Instead of ignoring the call like a sane person, he takes the criminal and handcuffs him to a kiddie playground. He starts talking to his wife about false contractions, totally takes his eyes off of Pooch, and nearly misses the guy taking off with a slide attached to his wrist.
Back in holding, Pooch sits, while Fitch informs Washington that the driver was a minor and it is totally Washington's job to get the pertinent information about the perp. Stone doesn't think this is a good idea, Mason just stares at Fitch skeptically and Washington walks in all confident and doing his best bad cop impression. Pooch refuses to talk, but then starts swearing and making comments about fucking Washington's wife... as you do when you are a dirtbag drug dealer being charged for a homicide. Washington starts swearing back at him. Pooch says that Washington is "green as a martian", the two fight back and forth until Pooch says he wants a lawyer. Clearly, he's familiar with the ways of the legal system.
Mason shakes her head and wants to know that Fitch has a plan. He does. It's to make Pooch think he's smarter than them. Stone thinks Pooch is smart because now they can't question him. Oh, Fitch has a plan for that too. He heads into the room and tags Washington out. Then he just sits across from Pooch and stares not uttering a single word. His unnerving stare makes Pooch talk a lot, then stare, then eventually freak out. It's perfectly acted and really well shot. Imperioli's eyes speak volumes. Pooch tells his life story and the rest of the crew starts getting antsy as it has been hours of Fitch's quiet staring. Eventually Pooch confesses, and Fitch walks out. He took the Oxy, but didn't kill the guys. The priest at the basketball court can (and does) corroborate his story.
