At the nursing home, Sully is sitting bedside. He gets very emotional and cries because he doesn't know how to take care of his mother, who is afflicted with Alzheimer's. The sad piano plays. The nursing home woman says it would be too difficult for Sully to take Irene home. She seems impressed that he's even there. Oh, poor Sully. Don't you just want to put Sully in your oversized pocket, take him home and give him a big fluffy hug? I want a Sully plush doll. Sully kisses his mom's hand and his mom's cheek. I go grab a phone to call my mom.
The mean doctor from before is acting nicer because he's examining the kid that Kim and Bobby brought in. He says the kid hasn't suffered from abuse, just neglect and a few rat bites. He's like a mini Richard Hatch. Bobby is holding the boy in his arms, and it's like one of those black-and-white prints of a buff male model holding a baby that they sell at college dorm-art sales. They talk about how it sucks to abandon a child, who would do such a thing, on and on. The kid is sleepy, but only because of the dialogue. Bobby talks about how he got separated from his dad after a baseball game once and how he felt so lost. A bit of a stretch there on relating it to your life, Bobby. Kim goes to get coffee while Bobby holds the kid.
Doc, in street clothes, approaches the animal control center. The scary guy is inside. Doc gets his attention and asks about the cockatoo. "It's too late," the animal control guy growls. Doc looks sad. "Your friend already took him," Scary Man says, "the Spanish dude!" Oh, I forgot, New York has a bustling Spaniard population of which Carlos is a part.
Carlos is, of course, at home feeding his new cockatoo and teaching it to talk. It can almost say "hello." It needs to learn to say "this bites."
Back at the locker room, Ty asks Sully about his mom. He commiserates. They all hear that the bad guy in the hospital woke up and revealed where the buried man is. They all scramble to get there.
Okay, now it's nighttime and here's the suspenseful music I was looking for earlier. Lots of digging. Everybody is in street clothes, which look donated by Sears. The same FBI guy who looks like Skinner from The X-Files gets down there and pulls up a piece of wood to reveal a tiny, shaking old man. It's like a Cracker Jack prize. The man is alive. Sully looks shaken, but not particularly stirred. The guy has dirt and drool and snot hanging all over. But I guess that's better than having a bad case of The Deads. Ty talks to Sully about how bad it would to be buried alive. He's way ahead of you, Ty. They stand over the empty grave. Ty invites Sully out for a bite. Sully just looks stunned. "What, no hot date?" Sully asks. Ty says he'll cancel it. The love, people. Here's the love. Sully changes his mind and says he doesn't know if he'll be good company. Ty says it ain't no thing. Ty suggests Thai food (ha, get it?). They walk off into the lack of a sunset. An artsy shot pans into the grave, and we have the end of the episode.
