For some reason, none of the Neutrogena commercials feature Jennifer Love Hewitt. Is it because they are for adult breakouts and she is still seen as a teenager? Or is it because her show is going off the air? Hmm, let's ponder that one.
Platypus packs up Mollie's stuff as Sarah watches a news report on Mollie's murder. Platypus says, "God, turn it off!" Sarah muses that Mollie's murder is all over every news report on the television and radio, and that it's probably on the front page of every paper. Platypus tells Sarah not to bring the papers back to the apartment, saying, "I don't want to see them." She goes on to say that she has to pick up Mollie's dad at the airport and walk him past all the newsstands, with Mollie's face on every paper. Sarah tells her that they'll probably be on the subway too, and suggests that Platypus take a cab to pick up Mollie's father. "I'll share one with you," Sarah offers. Platypus asks where Sarah is going, and Sarah tells her that she's going to bring Mollie's class roster down to the police station to Detective Douglas. Platypus asks anxiously if Sarah is coming back to the apartment afterwards. Sarah says she thought she would go into work, and then quickly asks if it's bad to pretend it's a day like any other day, "Because I don't know." Platypus shrugs and Sarah asks, "What are you supposed to do?"
At the police station, Sarah asks Douglas if he thinks it was someone Mollie knew. Douglas shakes his head and says he's just following up some leads. "You have to tell me what mistakes you think she made," Sarah tells him. Douglas pauses in his writing and looks up, "I'm sorry, what mistakes?" "Like, did people -- did witnesses say that they heard her screaming? I mean, did they say that they could hear her try to resist this guy?" Douglas says they don't have any witnesses that heard her screaming. "Right. See I'm just -- I feel safe here. In general, you know, pretty safe." Douglas stops his writing and settles down to listen to Sarah talk about herself rather than helping him with information about Mollie's murder. Sarah continues, "And I know some things to do. You know, I don't walk down an empty street alone. I cover my purse. I carry mugger money, you know, so you have something to give up. I mean, that's smart right?" Sarah looks to Douglas for affirmation. "Yeah," he says. Sarah continues, "Well, I'm just trying to figure out how she was careless. What she did wrong." Douglas just looks at Sarah's dinners.
Platypus meets Mollie's stunned father at the airport. He doesn't see her until she calls out his name several times. "Romy," he says and Romy whispers, "I'm sorry," and hugs him. At the bar Scraggle asks Sarah, "What did he say? Do they have anything?" "Nope," Sarah tells him, "No leads. Nothing." Joss looks at a newspaper as Boss Man says, "That's what they were saying on this radio report I heard." "Man, it's everywhere, isn't it? Every front page, every morning show..." Joss trails off. "Yeah, no kidding," Sarah says. "I just wonder how much press it would have gotten if it had been a black kid from the projects," Joss muses. Scraggle stares at her, "What's that supposed to mean?" he asks. "Nothing," Joss says, backing off. "Look, I shouldn't have said anything, it's horrible." Of course, Joss is right in what she said, but still, it's not quite on to make the friends of a murdered person feel guilty that their dead friend is getting more press coverage than a minority kid would. Scraggle tells everyone that he kept dreaming the night before that he gets to Mollie one minute too late and he grabs the guy, "and [he] start[s] wailing on him and [he] just kill[s] him." Scraggle continues, "I would've, if I had been there." Macho, Macho, Maguire. Some stranger at the bar says, "So you guys actually knew her?" Scraggle and Sarah nod and say, "We were her friends." "For a long time?" the stranger asks. "No," Sarah says sadly, "Not very long at all."
