Sip and Ricky are at their desks when the security guy comes in. He's meeting the Bossy Eve here. Oh, and can you guys tell her about her dad being killed? Thanks: "She gets disagreeable." Sip comes over, shoos John away from his desk and asks the security guy, "You were a cop -- how many time you notify the next of kin?" But this lady is different, he says: "This woman intimidated the hell out of me. I'm frightened from the moment I get up until I'm home again at night." I've had bosses like that. Sip, all putting the hammer down, says, "You're telling her and your making the ID on the body." Here she comes! The security guy takes her into the hall and tells her. She cries, he comforts her. Sip says, "Sorry for your loss," and the Lady Eve, softened, says, "Thank you." Aww, she's nice now! And it only took the death of her father to do it. Yikes.
Ricky goes into the holding cell where they've got JB. JB's mad: "Let me live my life like a free-choosing adult! [Getting high] is my free-choosing choice!" Hee. Ricky yells, JB, you're dying, and JB yells, then let me die! And Ricky goes, I'm not gonna let you die! And makes JB come home with him that night.
In Ricky's apartment, Mary is barefoot and chained to the hot stove, where she's been slaving away all day, frying the bacon up in the pan, and later she's never gonna let Ricky forget he's a man! But who's that? JB? A stinky junkie? Mary folds her arms (!) and asks to talk to Ricky for a sec. What is he doing here? JB says, "I hope you're not bickering about me." Ricky explains that JB has "done him some solids" and that JB is staying the night. He makes JB get into the shower and says to Mary, "Look, if you wanna go, I understand." I think he's already mentally broken up with her (crossing my fingers as I type that). Mary's like, "Do you want me to leave?" and Ricky says, "Hell no. Unless you wanna." JB comes out of the shower and we get to see his lovely ass. Mary gets the full-frontal view. I'm jealous. Mary retreats to the bedroom and says of JB, "He sings doo-wop like Dion." Mary says, "I love you." Ricky says, "Thank you." and goes to check on JB. Mary cries and looks at Ricky's little-kid art on the wall. Mary, RUN NOW. Ricky has hard-core issues.
