At Homicide, Holley is telling Kima, Norris, and another detective I don't recognize that he and two other detectives have been "sitting here like the fucking Maytag repairman, growing piles." As the owner of two Maytag appliances that have needed repairs within the last few years, I would like to do all that I can to expose as a lie this idea that the Maytag repairman just sits around with nothing but time on his or her hands -- 'round these parts, the Maytag repairman is a busy and well-compensated service professional, and, in my darker moments, I dream of crushing him under his own washer-dryer. But perhaps I've said too much. Before I can further expose any homicidal impulses, Landsman waddles into the room to inform everybody that their efforts to track the serial killer's phone have proven fruitless; Sydnor will be relieved to hear that. Also, Landsman lets us know that McNulty is over at the newspaper, preparing to take statements from Templeton and the other know-nothings. "Let's hear that mother-fucker again," Landsman tells Holley, who obligingly plays the tape. "Sounds like some gearhead from Dundalk," Landsman snorts. Or a detective in your own squadron -- either answer would prove accurate.
