After the commercials, Fancy cruises into the office. Gay John jumps a mile. Diane stomps in and asks, "How was Comstat?" Fancy says, "Nifty." I say, "Hidely-ho there, Ned Flanders! What have you done with the Lieutenant?" "Where's Jill?" Fancy asks. "She's on lost time," snaps Diane. "Does she need lost time?" asks Fancy, with a slight expression of concern on his face. Diane snaps again, "She probably NEEDS to catch the case." And runs out, grabbing a walkie-talkie. Gay John looks upset. Fancy asks where Sip and Ricky are and Gay John makes something up. Fancy, with his goofing-off radar in full effect, heads to the interrogation room and finds them in there, kicking back with the newspaper. Whoops! They both jump up and run out, with Sip asking lamely, "How was Comstat?" The boss comes home and finds all his people falling apart...oh, poor Fancy. Things are not so nifty today.
On the gritty, gritty street, Kirky and Di have reunited to check out a crime scene. Today's special? Baby in a dumpster. We get a lovely shot of a baby's plump legs sticking out of garbage bags. I feel sick. Kirky looks and says, "No bruises. I want that baby out of there." Diane says, "I want a photo," and Kirky snaps, "Take a photo and then I want that baby out of there." They're still fighting. Some guy says, "What a mess." Yes, dumpsters filled with trash can be called a mess. A dead baby in one is a sick fucking tragedy, you goon. Kirky and Di whirl on him, asking, "Do you recognize this baby?" Yeah, he does. And he must have not liked the baby at all because his reaction seems to be more checking out the cops more than having any thought for the dead baby. Nice. So the baby's mother is Rosanna, who may or may not be down on the Bowery "lifting her skirt to get high." Wow -- I am so literal I lifted my skirt a couple of times to see that happens before I realized he meant she was a prostitute! They send Some Guy on his way and, licking his lips, he goes. Eww. Kirky says to the uniformed cops "Don't wait for the crime unit; get that baby out of there." Really, it's very disturbing.
Back at the office, Sip and Ricky have nothing better to do than talk about the fight Diane and Kirky are in. Sip goes, "They don't hold grudges like we do," and Ricky says, "They don't have the same duration." Sip goes, "So you think they'll come skipping back in here, arm-in-arm?" Yeah, women are famous for not holding grudges. Especially when you're on a dead baby case and your loser ex is a drug runner and everyone knows it. Fancy comes in and announces a DOA stabbing on 10th and Avenue C. The name is Juan Omedo. Sip does a double-take and realizes that's one of the guys against whom Romeo filed harassment charges just two hours ago. "We must have given him a very effective counseling session," Sip says. Ricky goes, "Two hours -- that must be some kind of record." Yeah, but the women are supposed to make up just like that, right?
