Di and Kirky stride into a hospital and find a doctor to lead them to Shanice, who says she was raped. The doctor is all stern and concerned as she tells the very battered-looking Shanice, "You ready to talk to them?" Shanice is all fired up as she holds out her arm and says, "I wrote his name on my arm in case he killed me: Paul!" Di turns to the doctor and says, "You know that if you stay here you could be called as a witness." The doctor looks even more stern then before as she says, "I just want to make sure Shanice isn't shamed or intimidated." Shanice says, "I want it to be known. He raped me. He beat me. He chained me to a radiator all night." Di asks, "Did you know Paul?" The doctor leaps in: "What does her having a prior relationship with the perpetrator have to do with her being raped now?" Di, losing patience, says, "Nothing, Doc! Just like your prior relationship with cops doesn't excuse you from interfering with our work now." Kirky gets Paul's number from Shanice and says, "We're gonna check him out." Shanice, practically freaking, asks, "Does that mean you're going to wait on talking to Paul?" Di shoots her a look like, I've had enough of people telling me what to do, and says no. Shanice says, all wrathful, "And if he resists arrest and you have to bust his nose, that's okay too." Di and Kirky do a slight double take, say okay and leave. One nose-busting, coming right up.
Back at the stationhouse, Di and Kirky walk into Fancy's office with the info on their rape case. Kirky says, "She could have been raped. Her kit was positive and she had a hell of a shiner." Di, still fussy, says, "It was hard to get a read on it with her doctor running interference." Then they say that they think Greg and Baldwin should interview Paul the Rapist as well. Okay!
In front of John's desk, the reticent bartender is cooling his heels. Fancy tells Greg and Baldwin about their upcoming rape interview, and Sip asks how the bartender's doing. Greg calls him "sulky." Sip goes, "Sulky, huh?" Ricky, ever sarcastic (and we love him for it), goes, "Don't most people come in here doing cartwheels and carrying on?" Hee! Then Fancy corrals Baldwin and drags him off to speak to him privately. Ooh!
Fancy, super-serious, says, "I want you to call Joe Abner. He said he's going to take a vacation." Baldwin says, "The last time he was in here it seemed like he could use one." Fancy couldn't look more concerned as he continues with, "He said 'bye,'" and Baldwin says, "Say 'bye' back." Don't you get it, Baldwin? Things are bad! Fancy says patiently, "Call him. Keep him talking. See how he seems." Baldwin just stands there like a huge, attractive man until Fancy says, "Do it now," and Baldwin hops to it.
