Bennett, meanwhile, is even gruffer than usual. He's approaching Wilford Brimley levels of gruff. "What the hell happened to Grady? The suit he's got on cost more than he has in his campaign fund," he says, asking O'Connell how Grady could be affording this. She's curious too, and even more curious to find out about Laura, which she does when they show up. As for Savino, he's acknowledging the work she's done in polishing this turd of a candidate, and she warns him that the televised debate is going to be tough.
Ralph and Dixon show up at the only medical supply shop closer than Carson City where dental cement can be bought -- Dixon sarcastically devouring the fresh air that he doesn't get to experience from being cooped up in the office all day. Ralph warns him not to get used to it. Their easy joshing vanishes when they find the night watchman dead, however.
Naturally, the only thing stolen is a drum of dental cement. Whoever did it couldn't get it by legal means, then. "Now we've narrowed it down to someone who isn't a dentist," moans Dixon, which was pretty funny, and then Jack selflessly volunteers to go work with Mia to look through records of who was on duty when fake chips were found.
The next day, Savino's men hijack a truck carrying a load of televisions; they've got a list of businesses where they're going to drop them off. "Some days it's a pleasure coming to work," says one of them, in direct contrast to Jack, who in the previous scene had been moaning about how much he misses the ranch.
Over at the beauty parlor, ADA O'Connell makes chitchat with Laura, sitting under the hair dryer while she reads a Time magazine with Kennedy on the cover and then makes joke about Kennedy's influential friends in Illinois. Borelli strolls in to drop off a television compliments of Grady, so everyone can watch him mop up Bennett in the debates. Laura looks awkward while O'Connell looks like she's piecing things together.
Mia and Jack working in the files. "We could be here all night." "Worse things have happened." She looks at him but doesn't respond, so he starts nosily poking his nose in the business of her interest in D.A. Reynolds, which she politely but firmly reminds him is none of his beeswax. Plus, Reynolds brother DIDN'T beat up her dad. Damn, for how long is she going to bring that up?
