Ricky and Sip let Phillip out of the pokey and Sip calls out, "Don't expect Blake home anytime soon." Phillip makes a crack about fascist police in South America and Sip says he thought all the gauchos were in South America, and I thought gauchos were a kind of pant? Like a clamdigger but with a wider leg? Anyway, John comes out of the observation room to hear Phillip call Sip a "vulgar pig," and Sip responds that he wants to "oink," and then Phillip tells them to tell Blake he's going to "widen the loop," and Sip gets a good one in ("widen the loop? And then what are you gonna do, stick your weenie in it?") before he stalks off. Then, Sip ASKS JOHN what he thinks! John says he thinks Phillip killed that man. Sip says he does too, but that he needs help figuring out his mental state. John says, "I'm new at this; give me a chance." Ricky says, "Take your time," and John strides off purposefully. Sip looks after him like, that gay guy is gonna save us all!
The funky funky keyboard leads us all around NYC and ends up at the station house. Sip and Ricky are in Fancy's office explaining about their case, with Sip saying "gay" this and "fruit" that and Ricky ahem-ing at every opportunity until Fancy says, "Andy, we've got it. We know everyone involved is gay." Anyways!
Sip and Ricky lead Fancy out to get John's perspective. John looks terrified, and begins slowly: "I don't think Phillip killed him for money...I think he killed him because he needed to be the only thing in that boy's head...Phillip is so afraid....let me collect myself." Sip jumps in but Fancy says, "How about you let John talk." Yeah, Let JOHN talk! "Phillip can't stand being compared with anyone. Blake wouldn't hate Walter. Phillip is going to bring back a lawyer for Phillip; that's what widening the loop meant." Sip says, "Protecting his own sick ass is less important to him than getting Blake back on his team." Hee hee, Sip said "ass." John continues, "If Blake doesn't want a lawyer, he sends the lawyer away. He needs to be the only thing in that boy's head." Fancy nods. Sip gives John the thumbs-up. Go John! Win that respect!
