Cop shop. The elevator doors open and McNulty glides out, passing Rawls on his way in to Homicide. "Colonel," greets McNulty cordially. It apparently takes a second for Rawls to notice who's just passed him; he stops dead, turns around, and watches McNulty's purposeful stride in complete shock -- like he thought damning McNulty straight to hell would have literally come to pass by now.
Anyway, McNulty comes into the office, greets Winona, and heads for Bunk's cube. Jay, hanging over a partition, giggles and calls McNulty "Gilligan," at which Bunk rolls his eyes, like, YES, he's on the boat. It's Episode 4; we're over it. "Don't you have a job?" asks Jay ingenuously. "Ooh, ouch!" hisses McNulty sarcastically. Hee. Bunk, and then Jay, regard the board, with its fourteen red Jane Does; Jay throws a pen at McNulty and takes off, leaving McNulty to tell Bunk, "I smell fresh police work." Bunk and Lester give him dirty looks. "Okay, be like that," says McNulty. Turning to Beadie, he asks about the paper she recovered from the container: "A letter, couple of envelopes, some scraps of stuff?" Beadie -- looking much more polished and less careworn than we've seen her up to now -- nods, telling McNulty that it's all in Evidence Control. McNulty moves on to Lester to get the submission slips, but Lester ignores him; he's sanding what looks like a dollhouse window frame. McNulty's like, "Um, hi," and Lester hands him a sheaf of paper, pouting, "You want all of it?" Bunk stops McNulty before he can take the slips and run: "Before you start dancing with your Jane Doe, I'm gonna need a little something from you on the Gant case. I got a full set of Ilene Nathan's teeth marks on my hind parts." McNulty smirks that he's got Bunk covered. "You found Omar?" asks Bunk. McNulty: "I never lost him, my friend." Lester and Bunk both stare at McNulty in bitter shock as he turns on his heel and takes off again. Lester: "He's got Omar?" "Bullshit," drawls Bunk. Beadie stands in for the new viewers, asking who Omar is, but the show has no patience for bandwagon-jumpers; I half-expect Bunk to tell her to go rent Season 1.
