Maggie prepares dinner and the phone rings. Cousin Kimble answers it and tells Maggie that it's from an I.M. Superior. ["Hee. I know it's dumb, but those make me laugh. If my brother went on the lam, he'd totally call me up and identify himself as I.P. Freeley or something." -- Sars] Maggie rushes over and takes the phone, but doesn't leave the room like any person with half a brain and a fugitive brother would. She tells the caller she is U.R. Superior, much to the mystification of Unc and Cuz Kimble. Kimble asks to speak to his father, and Maggie tells him she doesn't know if Pa Kimble will want to speak to him. Kimble insists. Maggie takes the phone to her father and says, "It's Richard." Pa Kimble waves the phone away until Maggie pleads with him. Pa Kimble takes the phone, and it's obvious from their conversation that Pa Kimble thinks his son is guilty. Pa Kimble hands the phone back to his daughter. Kimble tells her he's coming to Philly to visit his dad. Maggie tries to convince him otherwise. "When is garbage pick-up?" Kimble asks his sister. "Day after tomorrow, why?" Maggie says. "Leave the door unlocked," Kimble tells her. What, his next disguise is going to be an eggshell or an old potato peel?
And ten minutes into the show, we have opening credits.
Lt. Bubba enters his C.O.'s office and starts to tell him something about being online, but Capt. Pushover ignores him and asks if he and Joss-Sara have ever taken ballroom dance lessons. Again, Lt. Bubba tries to say something, but Capt. Pushover says, "You know, start off with a little swing, a little salsa --" I think Capt. Pushover knows he's not ever going to be a main character, so instead he's trying to be the quirky character that everyone likes and looks forward to seeing if he's on the show. Sorry, buddy, but you are no Javier. Linda, the woman who acts as Lt. Bubba's erstwhile and sassy assistant, comes in and hands Capt. Pushover a paper. The marked passage has a picture of Capt. Pushover next to the headline, "McLaren in running for top cop post." Linda tells Lt. Bubba that he'd better be nice to the new chief of detectives, and Capt. Pushover says it's a long shot at this point but admits that it's already gone to his head. More banter with Lt. Bubba about ballroom dance and the fact that Sara's still mad at him. Lt. Bubba persists with his reason for coming into Capt. Pushover's office. He starts to say that it's about Kimble, but Capt. Pushover says, "You know, I thought we could start with the one introductory lesson and then --" Lt. Bubba interrupts him to say that Pa Kimble's father is dying, and Lt. Bubba is convinced Kimble will try and see him in Philly. They trot out the same tired argument that Lt. Bubba needs to do the right thing and walk away from this case, because he's got responsibilities to his work and family. Lt. Bubba walks out of the office, and we know he's not going listen to Spike Lee.
