Episode Summary

EDIT
Baby Love
AIRED:
Valerie stops by Baldwin's apartment for some spontaneity. Sipowicz gets a page from Gibson's niece Cynthia, and agrees to have lunch with her. A baby is taken from hospital and all of the detectives move on the case, until Jones and Medavoy are diverted to an arson investigation. One of the Arab owners of the firebombed shop keeps pointing towards a man who has been hassling them a lot. Jones and Medavoy interview this man who's been holding a grudge since 11 Sep 2001. McDowell interviews a woman who recently had a stillborn and becomes angry when she realizes that she's a suspect. Cynthia tells Andy about her uncle's colon cancer and the fact that his family wants him at home, getting treatment. He promises her that he will do something, but his focus at the moment is on the missing baby case. Racial tensions erupt at the hospital when one of the store owner's accuses the police of doing nothing. Back at the squad a woman comes forward with info on the firebombing; she overheard her neighbor bragging about the crime. A woman is brought in for questioning, which gives the detectives information on a woman who was supposed to be having a baby at the hospital. They go to her apartment and she confesses to leaving the crying baby in a nearby building. They also realize that the name the woman called when they arrived is the same as the father of the missing baby. Jones and Medavoy interview their informant's neighbor. They get him to cop to the crime, but keep the "hate" part out of it, at least for now. They come back later informing the suspect that the owner's ID'd him as someone they'd had problems with in the past. Now he needs to amend his statement and now the hate is included with the crime. Sipowicz and Clark Jr. interview the baby kidnapper and she confesses that she and the baby's father were in a conspiracy to kidnap the baby. They go to hospital and arrest the baby's father, who isn't very cooperative. Sipowicz tries having a talk with Gibson, but Gibson doesn't give anything up. Meanwhile Rodriguez asks the detectives if they think Gibson brings anything to the table. Sipowicz offers to be his partner. Given the events of the day, Sipowicz offers McDowell another chance to talk, but she declines citing having a blind date to go on. Instead of a date, Connie has her daughter, Jennifer, under surveillance.moreless
