Some smarmy-looking yuppie comes in, on his cell phone. He snaps at John, "I'm Danny Good. My uncle's missing." John says, "The investigating detectives are just on their way back," then makes a gesture like, 'please have a seat right there.' Donny makes a face, imitates John's gesture and sits down, rolling his eyes as he does. Hey Donny, check this gesture out! Not so polite, is it? John gets as icy as I've ever seen him as Donny gives him the once-over. Then Donny says, "Ever run into a guy named Blake from Louisville?" John asks what the hell it is he's talking about, but more politely. Donny says, "He probably killed my uncle. I thought your flight paths might have crossed." I hate Donny. Ricky and Sip come in and Donny leaps up, "Is one of you Sorenson?" Yes, and this is Sipowicz. Donny says, "Hello, Sipowicz." Wow, he's scoring off Sip now! Anyway, there's nothing NEW about his uncle being missing and a bloody hunk of his head on the asphalt, so why'd you call Donny? John helpfully says Donny thinks Blake from Louisville killed his uncle. Ricky and Sip lead Donny over to their desks, asking who Blake is. Donny, champion of snot, says, "That guy's gay, right? Blake's another fag." What a humanitarian! Even Sip is disgusted, and says, "I'm trying to remember the last time I took a shine to someone right off the bat like I have with you, Donny." Donny, new to sarcasm, says, "I grow on people." Yeah, yeah, fungus. Ricky and Sip casually comment that Uncle Walter had a nice place and a "nice taupe Mercedes," and Donny busts out, "Guys, I have my own investing firm and fifty thousand shares of stock and I don't need to kill anyone." Ricky asks if he "knows how to reach out to this Blake," and Donny THROWS his address book at him. Sip says, "Don't throw stuff at us, Donny, or we'll throw things at you." Like 'the book,' maybe? Anyway, Ricky calls Blake's MOM and fakes her out with a concert-ticket-story to get Blake's new number. Donny says, "You guys are dogs," and Sip shushes him. Ricky hands back the address book and says, "See how nice I handed this back to you?" Sip goes, "How can we get in touch with you, through your broker?" Donny goes, "After I leave, explain the concept of the Internet to him?" Don't forget to mention Mightybigtv.com! Then Donny lays his version of a zinger on John, "See ya, gorgeous." John doesn't even look up as he says, "Keep thinking you're straight." GO JOHN! Donny does a double take and runs out. Sip asks John, "That crack you made...were you inferring that Donny --" and pumps his fist sideways. John says, "Please," and pumps his fist out straight. Sip chuckles.
