Jamie: "You say you're entirely insensate from the waist down?"
Darren: "Utterly. Why?"
Jamie: "No reason."
The way Darren's mind works, though, is that this is two things happening at once: Number one, the hits and shame just keep coming. But number two, tiny sweet Jamie would happily carry him physically through the rest of his life, and it would crush him just as easily as Darren's dead weight is even now crushing down on Jamie's internal organs. Not to mention his plausibly deniable erection.
Holder: "Giffs. Alexi Gifford, twenty years of age, five foster homes in the ten years he was in the system. Guess he's a runner."
Linden: "If you catch a bad one, two years can be a lifetime."
Holder: "Um, whoa."
Linden: "Where can we find him."
Holder: "Uh... Oh, hey! He lives three blocks from the Larsens' house. How convenient for his job."
Linden: "And his second job, the stalking. And his third job, the Killing."
Stan walks through an interminably long, unbearably shadowy corridor, and when he reaches the Morgue the guy says Belko's body -- and funeral -- have already been taken care of.
Janek's alone at the church -- A big picture of Belko up front, lonely funeral in progress -- when Stan arrives. Man, I still miss that kid so much. Rosie seems pretty sucky but I guess in a show entirely about grief there would eventually be one death that affected me in some way.
Janek: "I wish Belko had been more like you. With that promise you showed early on, before you got yourself jumped out and turned your back on our immigrant culture."
Stan: "It ended up okay. Or at least better than it did for him."
Janek: "How's that clean American living going for you? Lost your secret house, lost your wife, one kid dead and the other two already following in their crazy mother's footsteps..."
Stan: "Yeah, because it would be better for me to die like Belko, settling scores in the way you prefer. And the way I prefer to let him -- and you -- do for me, to keep my crumbling self-image intact."
Janek: "At least he went out like a man and not an ungrateful whiner like you. Oh, and PS, our thugs noticed Tommy getting beat up and teased about his dumb dead sister. Later!"
Linden: "I am actually a little pleased to report that I am with Holder, and will tell him that you said hello. Good day, Progeny."
