Medavoy at the IAB. He uses a lot of fifty-cent words, but can't spell "Canandaigua" better than "C-A-N-degeua." Hee. Medavoy makes a right pretty speech about good cops getting "jammed up," or something, but honestly, he didn't cover anything up. The IAB guy says Baldwin is up next. Medavoy makes a face.
The gritty, gritty street where the station house is looks pretty in the afternoon light. Medavoy comes in and gets mad that everyone else is out doing police work, especially Baldwin who's out with Fancy. John says the boss was "eager and invigorated" to be out on the job. Medavoy just about pops a gasket then rushes out to "protect the boss and making sure he returns to the confines of his private office." Hee.
Sip and Ricky bust in on Junkie Guy, and tell him Tito wasn't where JG said he would be. Junkie Guy gives up Tito's pager number. Sip grumbles. Dude, blame Bochco. Ricky says it's only a 20\% chance they get a call on a traceable "land line." Junkie Guy asks when ("ahem," the closed captioning says) he may get out. Dude. Give it UP. Listen to the smooth jazz they pipe in and sit on it.
Sip makes another worried call about Theo's tests. His doctor is still in surgery. Sip understands, and sighs, and wipes his face.
Ricky and Di take a huddle -- they decide they have to talk to Denby to find out about some chick Kirky's ex-lover was banging. Di sighs that she got a letter from Denby, but didn't read it. Ricky acts a little jealous. She thinks it was an "amends letter, step nine." Ricky says, "Give me the letter, I'll go talk to him." Mmm-hmm. Di says no, she'll go do it. Mmm-HMM!
Phone. It's from a landline. Ricky goes to trace the call, and Sip, in some kind of really bad foreign accent (so bad it's "furrin'"), asks for Sammy. "Is Sammy dere! I want to talk to Sammy! Put Sammy on the ! They hung up." Hee. Sip said Sammy funny.
Baldwin, Fancy, and Derek/fast food survivor guy are sitting in a car, waiting to make a collar. Fancy asks whose idea it was to shoot Derek in the head. Derek says his. Fancy asks if they put an apple on his head first. Derek doesn't get it. Does Zips's even have apples? I doubt it. Anyway, the shooters come out, Derek points them out, and Baldwin and Fancy make the collar. This is like when Ace and Sep write "they fight" in a Buffy recap. At the last minute, Medavoy zooms up to "help." As if.
