Cutty's gym. Michael's taped up his hands, and Cutty tells him to go at a heavy bag, which one of Cutty's associates holds for him. As Michael is whaling on it, another neighbourhood lady shows up with a peach cobbler in an aluminum tray, introducing herself as Gail. Cutty, barely looking away from Michael, says he's forgotten whose mother Gail is, and she says she doesn't have any boys; she's just grateful to Cutty for his efforts on behalf of the neighbourhood. She adds that she has three girls, but notes that he doesn't teach girls, which she approves of: "Men should be men, and women should be women." She preens a little off this not-especially-subtle invitation, but Cutty only has eyes for Michael -- in a totally innocent way, sickos.
Norris's crime scene. It's a large black guy, face-down on the pavement, who Holley learns was actually alive when the beat cop arrived on the scene. Norris asks the beat cop whether the guy says who shot him, and the cop replies, "He said it was a guy with a gun." Holley cracks up. So much for Norris's lucky streak!
Detail office. Lester, Kima, and Massey are in the wire room, listening to the conversation Monk had on his cell phone in the woods. They clean it up enough to hear Old Face Andre identified, and when they snap it off, Lester comments that the second voice that came on after Monk's sounded like it outranked everybody there. Kima surmises that it must be Marlo, whom they're hearing on the phone for the first time. Kima comments that he sounds arrogant, like he's the "l'il king of everything." "Ah, youth," murmurs Lester. Oh, to be carefree and sociopathic again.
Squat. Bubbs is about to shoot up when Sherrod, on cushions on the floor, says his name. Bubbs quickly hides the needle as he says he thought Sherrod was asleep; he isn't, quite, and says that if Bubbs would like him to, Sherrod could "go to school some," though he says it's been so long since he went that he's not sure if he still can. Bubbs smiles and nods, and when Sherrod turns back over, Bubbs does his business and starts to nod out, dreaming of all the Bubbles Depo outlets he'll run someday.
Burrell's office. He's called Rawls in to meet with him, and is telling him how pissed Royce was. He doesn't expect that there'll be any way they can quash the subpoenas entirely, but says they'll have to make sure there aren't any more surprises for Royce out of the Major Crimes unit. Burrell suspects McNulty, but Rawls says that he hasn't been in Major Crimes for a year; Rawls figures the culprit is Lester, the sober black McNulty of yesterday. Burrell says that they need to sit on Lester, then, and Rawls intones that all the unit needs is "proper supervision." Oh, Christ, whose finger's going to be up the unit's ass now?
