They drive around San Diego and Britt tries to console his buddy (while petting their cute canine charge) by saying that Gretchen looks good and that divorce becomes her. Hank says that later they can talk about something really painful that happened to him and that still hurts to think about. See, told you that Hank was in denial about the divorce. At the police station, Britt wants to know how Hank knows Mickey... they trained for triathlons together. He's quick with the comebacks, that Hank. I like his deflection tactics, but Britt puts together that Hank got clean and Mickey didn't. He also surmises that Hank was probably more fun as a drunk and wishes that he knew him back them. Me too! Britt, we're going to get along famously.
Mickey stumbles out in a Hawaiian shirt and immediately makes the boys hit the liquor store before explaining how he ended up in the slammer. Apparently, Mick's daughter Eleanor called him the day prior out of the blue and said that she was in trouble (but not the pregnant kind) and needed money. She also wanted the .38 he had. He was on his way to help her when he got picked up by the cops. He begs Hank to find his little girl (according to Mickey, that's what Hank does) and to give her the money and to explain that he tried. Mickey breaks down crying and hopes his girl is safe.
As they approach her apartment, Britt wants to know if Hank remembers the girl, and there is a discussion about maybe once while there was a drunken encounter. Before Britt can knock, Hank stops him to hum "Close to You" again. "Waaaaahhhhhh, close to you." They knock and a young girl in short-shorts and a very revealing top answers the door. She's not Eleanor (it's never that easy on these types of shows) but she's her roommate. She hasn't showed up in a few weeks and the roomie is pissed that she got stuck paying the rent. She'll tell them where she thinks Ellie might be, if they do her a favor. It involves them moving her stove up against the back door because the lock was broken by a burglar and her landlord wants to charge a fortune to fix it. Oh, and she doesn't know where Ellie is, she just wanted the free manual labor. She does say that they met on Craig's List. Fortunately by picking through her room, Hank finds a clue that might lead to her whereabouts. It's a parking ticket from a very high-end part of town, one where all the houses have gates.
