Carcetti watches as a couple of Eastern detectives railroad a kid for three pills, telling him it's now felony weight. They keep leaning on him to reveal where the stash is, but the kid insists that he's not selling with three pills, for God's sake, and that the pills are his: "Look at me, I'm high right now!" So the cops arrest him, the lieutenant smugly telling Carcetti, "That's two." Carcetti's like, "Two what?!"
After school, Randy, Namond, and Michael (with Bug) compare notes on their days. Learning that Prez has started teaching fractions, Namond brags that in his new class, they talked about slinging: "My new class is the shit!" And without dice, even. Michael asks whether Namond will be at the gym later, but Namond says he has to "vial up" the rest of his package. Michael and Bug go one way, Namond and Randy another. And Randy had better not have any cute ideas about what he's doing that night or Miss Anna will have to break his ass in half for him.
Prez's classroom. Dukie's stayed after school and is messing around on the computer when Prez comes around, sadly telling him he has to leave soon. He looks at the game Dukie's playing and asks what level he's on. Dukie tells him he's on Level 12, and Prez sighs that he never got past 10. Dukie asks if Prez wants to see him get to Level 40, and activates a code that jumps him straight there. "That's cheating," says Prez wanly. "Want me to show you how?" asks Dukie. Prez nods. Heh. Going along with it silently makes it okay, I guess. Dukie grins, happy to have something he can give Prez for a change.
Pay phone. Prop Joe calls the police department, putting on a cracker accent as he asks for Herc. He gets put through to another number, trying a different fake name and accent, and finally gets through to Major Crimes. His face falls a little as he learns that Marlo is considered a Major Criminal, but when he asks for Herc, he's told he's on the street and hangs up thoughtfully.
At night, Partlow sits in his truck with Snoop, handing her a gun as they review the plan; he suggests that they ask their quarry something only someone from Baltimore would know -- about Partlow's favorite radio station, for instance. Snoop isn't familiar with "that 92Q shit," but gamely asks the guy standing on the corner who is his favorite guy on The Big Phat Morning Show. The guy tells her he likes Sanjay, which somehow convinces Snoop that he's from New York. She pulls a gun on him with a quickness, but Partlow pulls her off, telling her that Sanjay's on the show too. Well, maybe he sucks! As they walk briskly back to their truck, Partlow suggests that maybe he should ask the questions from now on. At least that. Maybe Snoop should also wait in the truck.
