At the school, Keith is interrogating Gabe about the foot. Gabe has backed off his story and now says the whole thing was just a joke. Keith, who keeps referring to Claire as "crazy funeral-home girl," doesn't buy that for a second. Gabe, on the other hand, keeps digging his own grave (pun not intended, but kinda funny anyway) by calling Claire a loser. Keith then decides to switch tactics, and slings an almost Sipowicz-like line of bullshit about chemicals that can tell if Gabe has touched human remains or not. Just as the dumb kid is about to confess, he looks over and sees David hanging out the window of Keith's cop car. David looks shell-shocked, almost as if he's been on a bender for the last few days. Gabe asks who David is, and Keith gives him the old "that's my psycho partner" routine. In fact, he describes David as being "into some crazy-ass shit," and also as "a crazy-ass guy." Wow. Thanks for making that crazy-ass clear. David waves and sticks his head back into the car, and we cut away before finding out if Gabe confesses.
Oy. Mom and Friend at the track again. They're getting drunk and gambling, and Mom has just won $4,000 on a horse. High on champagne and success, Ruth confesses her affair, and Amelia is shocked.
Cut to the weirdest flashback yet, as a young Brenda plays tea party in a little fort made of blankets. A phone rings, and the little girl answers it in adult Brenda's voice before we cut back to the present day to see Nate sleeping on the natty sofa. Brenda goes to the other room to take the call, and we can hear an angry man's voice demanding her attention on the other end. Brenda tells the guy to stay put and she'll call him in half-an-hour, and then Nate wakes up and asks whom she's talking to. She doesn't tell him, but immediately bolts, asking him to "back off" because she can't deal with things right now. Finally, she leaves, and Nate and the four viewers left watching scratch their heads and go "huh?" in unison. I've got some guesses as to what that was all about, but since none of them are things I'd actually enjoy watching, I won't be sharing those guesses.
Cut to Keith's cop car. He and David are cruising the streets in search of the wayward limb, and David is dismayed to learn that Gabe apparently got scared and tossed the foot out of his car window. Insert your own Lorena Bobbit joke here. Or don't, as I'll be making one for you in just a few minutes. David has to get home, but Keith volunteers to continue the search, saying, "How could I sleep at night, knowing there's a foot on the loose?" I'm sure his dedication will make the city proud.
