Sip and Ricky come into Fancy's office and offer the gruesome knowledge that Avery Birch is laid up in the hospital with hepatitis-C, awaiting a liver transplant. So, he might not be in the proper abducting spirit. John pokes his head in and says there's a guy on the phone (waving his hands behind him at his phone) with some info and do they want the call in here (waving his hands to illustrate "here")? Sip snaps into Giant Mean Het mode and yells, "What are you flailing your arms around for?" John recoils and asks if they want the call in here. Sip says, "Tell him to mind his own business," and Ricky goes, are you crazy? How else do we get cases solved around here if not by people walking in off the street and telling us what's up? We should BEG people to call us. John goes off to transfer the call, and he is SO sick of Sip's shit. Oh wait, that was me. Ricky takes it. Fancy asks Sip what the "bee in his bonnet" is. Hee hee, I'm picturing Sip in a bonnet. Sip mimics John saying 'do we want the call,' and Ricky is like, that's not what he said, you big fat bully. Then Sip says the bee in his bonnet is the security guy hired off the job. Apparently, when your boss is a real "Eve Arden type...you have your thumb up your butt" and are too intimidated to do a good job. Okay, was Eve Arden in Bewitched? Sip, please join us in a more current decade. But that's what RHB will now be called: Eve. Ricky gets off the phone with some lame info about the break-in, with the anonymous caller saying "three or four black or Hispanic guys did it." Fancy wonders if that's one of the perps calling "to see where we're at." At this point, I don't know who abducted Eve's old man and I DON'T CARE. Where's Baldwin or Theo when you need them? John buzzes on the intercom and Sip, center of the universe, says "That's to rebuke me for speaking harshly." Sip loves to feel bad so much, I'm giving him a hair shirt for the holidays. But, John's a bigger person than that and has just relayed the info that uniforms have found a Cutlass. The car, not pirate gear. Sip and Ricky exit, with Sip repeating the thing about working for Eve Arden causing thumb-up-the-butt-itis. Thumbs up!
Ricky and Sip roll up on the uniforms guarding the Cutlass (Supreme!) and oh no! Security guy is there. How'd he know? Police scanner, yo. They pop the trunk on the Cutlass and see blood and a pair of eyeglasses. The security guy confirms the glasses are the old man's. Sip theorizes that the old man must be dead. Uh-oh, here comes Eve! Does she have a police scanner too? Sip holds her back from the Cutlass and she yells at him to let her go. Sip is -- intimidated? And lets her approach the Cutlass. She gets a little misty mixed in with her usual bossiness when she sees the blood and the eyeglasses. Then she rushes to blame Avery Birch and they tell her about his sickly status. Sniffling, she goes to get her own mom from the hospital and the cops and the security guy breathe a sigh of relief. Whew, the bossy Lady Eve is gone.
