It's the end of the day. Ricky comes out and gets on the phone, ordering a DA to hear David's confession. Baldwin tells Di he talked to Paul. Di is glad. Sip says he needs to get "dopey Dave" a root beer. Ricky hangs up the phone and says, "Abner's dead. He ate his gun." The office stops. The blinds are still down in Fancy's office, and Sip asks Baldwin if he wants to go give him some company. Baldwin says he thinks if the boss wanted company he wouldn't have the blinds down, and Sip says, "You never met a guy so complicated that he had the blinds down signaling he wanted company?" Baldwin hasn't, and Sip goes, "Don't take that tone like it's out of the realm of possibility."
Fancy comes out of his office and says, "I guess you've all heard Lt. Abner's passed." Yeah, they heard. Sip says he's sorry: "Not that he'd want to see my name featured in the guest book." Oh that Sip, always thinking of other people's feelings. Fancy says goodnight and leaves. Baldwin chases him down the stairs, puppy-like, until Fancy stops him and says, "I don't have any answers for you. I can't tell you why he died." Oh Fancy, I wish you had all the answers too. Fancy tries to change the subject and says, "So you gave that guy a talking-to?" Yeah, Baldwin told him a thing or two, all right. They go down the stairs together and Sip walks out and looks after them. Wistfully? Nah -- but wishing he could be like them. Maybe not black like them, but you know what I mean.
