After some street scenes accompanied by that funky keyboard, we see Fancy heading into Baldwin's old boss's office. Fancy and this guy HATE each other -- I can tell. Fancy, baring his teeth, asks why he didn't get the courtesy of a phone call about Baldwin's transfer, and the old boss, bristling, says Baldwin wasn't a "good fit." Then he asks about that "racist prick" Sipowicz, adding that "he has you to thank...we all have [Fancy] to thank" for Sip's staying on the job. Then the old boss says he's very busy and Fancy grabs his coat and leaves. What's the back story THERE? I honestly don't know.
Now we get a lovely montage sequence of the Blue cops sweeping the streets (get it? SWEEPS!) looking for the person responsible for the dead cop. Look, there's Kirky and Di harassing hookers! And the new guy, Baldwin, breaking a thug's knife and kicking him in the butt while Greg takes his name! Work it guys! Earn your money!
Back in the office bathroom, Sip and Ricky are giving a still-peeved Fancy NO privacy as they tell him how it went with the lady partner. Fancy suggests they look at her boyfriend for a jealousy motive. Then he adds, "Duh." John comes in and says the wife of the DOA cop is here, and Sip starts yelling at John because everything is John's fault, not. John has the wherewithal to come in and shut the door so Mrs. DOA Cop doesn't overhear and Sip just lets John have it. As he leaves, Sip says, "He looks like he's on one of those carnival torture wheels where guys throw daggers at you." And that would make you a dagger-thrower, Sip! Fancy snaps at Sip, and Ricky reminds Sip to "breathe." Sip looks at Ricky darkly and says, "I don't do that stuff." Well, START.
Mrs. DOA Cop is nice enough, if depressed, which is normal. After she hears "sorry for your loss" twice, she says, "I know you have to." Then she says that, even though she knew about the affair, and her husband's "loss of control," the partner "was not selfish -- she was sorry." So, that's two people that think the affair had nothing to do with the murder. After she leaves, Sip, glowering says, "The day female cops got assigned to ride in squad cars, wives demonstrated." Ricky adds, "I doubt it was the day men invented cheating." GO RICKY!
