  • Episode Description
  • While John and Mickey are ordering lunch in Mario's deli, an elderly armed man enters and tries to rob Mario. Mickey is too busy deciding what to drink to notice the situation but John manages to talk to the man and disarm him. Back in the squad room, despite Mickey's protestations that John was the hero of the hour, everyone else believes that Mickey must have disarmed the robber and is just being generous. John later receives a special commendation from the mayor's office and becomes a local celebrity after Mario reports his brave act to the papers. This newfound celebrity goes to John's head and he alienates the rest of the squad, especially Mickey who now feels that his tough reputation among his colleagues has been undermined. With Fogarty now officially in charge, he wants his detectives to look smarter and persuades slovenly Schuler to see John's personal shopper, Darren. Ruggs and Biondi, meanwhile, are divided over whether a nude act at the Hornet's Nest club is obscene or legitimate performance art about the oppression of women. John is brought back down to earth when, due to illness at the mayor's office, his commendation ceremony is conducted by a disinterested young intern, Drew, in a dingy little office where the rest of the squad have grudgingly turned up. Fortunately, a speech by Mickey about John's genuine heroism at the deli smoothes the way for a reconciliatory apology by John.moreless
