Tony and A.J. are rough-housing by the pool. Oh, I hate it when I write like my mother talking to my Aunt Kathy. Tony's more playing, and A.J.'s telling Tony to quit it. Tony tells A.J. to turn the heat up in the pool. A.J. walks over to the control box and recoils in terror. "Oh, fuck! Fuck!" he shouts, as he jumps back seven feet. Tony asks what's wrong. "Spider," A.J. shudders. Tony looks inside the box. "So, kill it," he says. A.J. tells Tony to kill the spider. Tony tells A.J. to get over there and kill the spider. Tony puts his hands inside the box and scoops something into his cupped hands. He walks towards A.J. "Come here," he says. "No way," A.J. says as he backs up. Tony takes another step forward, and A.J. awkwardly scuttles into the pool to avoid having to look at the spider. He's all flailing arms and flailing legs and I hear my roommate Ray mutter, "I hear you, A.J." I can't even tell you how many times I've found Ray standing on a chair, screeching like Smurfette to get me to kill some spider. "It was a freakin' leaf, you idiot!" Tony yells after A.J., laughing at the fear in his kid's eyes. There's another boy that hangs out in my apartment that would also jump into a pool of water to avoid arachnids, but he'd be very upset if I said his name here. Wait a minute. He hasn't read a recap of mine in months. His name begins with an "S" and ends with "tee-rrified of spiders and creepy-crawlies."
Liliana walks out the back door and yells to Tony that the police are there. Tony asks if she let them in. She says she did. "Warrant!" Tony yells at her. He asks how you say that word in Polish. Liliana is unfazed.
Tony walks in to find Agent Harris and another man inside. The other guy introduces himself as Detective Giardana of the Essex County police force. Tony says he's pleased to meet him, but if he doesn't have a warrant, he should get the fuck out of Tony's house because he's busy. Giardana says, "I can see that." Tony says that Giardana is a comedian, and asks if that's how he broke his nose. Giardana is unamused. Agent Harris says that they could have called, but they wanted to be courteous. He tells Tony that he needs to come down to the station and answer some questions about Matthew Bevelaqua. Tony is fazed for a second, but A.J. walks up behind him and calls his name. Tony tells A.J. to do something out at the cabana and that he'll join him in a couple of minutes. A.J. leaves, and Harris says that Tony can come in at his earliest convenience. Tony asks Harris if they can roll the garbage cans down on their way out, since it's pick-up tomorrow. Harris and Giardana leave.
