Episode Summary

EDIT
Sipowicz and Clark are at the scene of a hit and run, where the driver of an SUV has struck down a guy on a bike and killed the young daughter of a known mobster. They move over to the scene, where the suspect's SUV has been found, but the young black men at the scene, who impeded a group of Italian boys who were looking to hold the driver and the vehicle for the police claim to not know the whereabouts or the identity of the driver. Back at the squad they find out the SUV was reported stolen and the others find out about Jones plans to become qualified as a foster parent for Michael Woodruff. Ortiz and Medavoy go to the hospital to interview a woman who was raped in her own apartment. Jones reports back from the canvas that a plate number was obtained from a vehicle leaving the scene, which gives them a lead to start with. Meanwhile an anonymous caller on the hit and run gives the detectives the name Calvin George. They get George's address and go to the home, only to find a car full of Italian gentlemen waiting across the street. Sipowicz warns the Italians to go about their business. He and Clark find Clavin George's mother, who they inform about Calvin's pending predicament. Jones and Medavoy talk with Norman Reese, the guy whose vehicle was seen fleeing the scene, he tells him that their victim wanted to be raped and he has all of their chat-room conversations saved and offers it to the detectives as proof. In the meantime, Calvin George's mother calls, she reports that shots have been fired into her apartment. Sipowicz and Clark try to emphasize to Calvin's mother the need for her son to turn himself in and get some protection. Jones goes to the interview with CFS and relates to the interviewer his own story about growing up and his own need for a father figure, which he feels add to his qualifications for looking out for Michael. The rape victim comes into the squad for an interview with Medavoy and Ortiz. She tells them she knows about chat-rooms, but doesn't know anything the kind of chat-rooms that they are asking her about. Medavoy and Ortiz both feel that she is telling the truth. Rodriguez announces his plans for retirement to the squad. He'll let them know when he knows when he is going to have his official last day, which doesn't sit well with Sipowicz. The ISP finally reveals the name for the screen name ‘NastyGirl' actually belongs to a woman named Courtney Bates. Ortiz and Medavoy plan to bring her in for questioning, but first Medavoy does what he always does, he asks Rodriguez the reason for his sudden departure. Clark and Sipowicz go to see Tony Grimaldi to ask some questions and to warn him to call off his dogs, which Grimaldi agrees to do, as long as the man responsible pays an adequate price for the loss of his daughter. Courtney Bates is brought in, but denies having used the screen name and mentions the ‘space cadet' from down the hall that she occasionally lets use her old second hand machine. Clark and Sipowicz finally get to talk with Calvin George, who tells them a tale that they find hard to believe. Sipowicz reports to Rodriguez about George and then he starts asking questions about the reasons for Rodriguez's retirement. The other hit and run victim has regained consciousness and Clark and Sipowicz show him a photo of Calvin George and others. He tells them that the driver of the SUV was a white guy. Michelle Foster's husband is brought in and asked about his relationship with Courtney Bates, a woman whose phone records indicate he's had several conversations with her. Now they need to prove that Courtney setup the rape of the Michelle Foster. Clark and Sipowicz talk with a woman who witnessed the SUV being dropped off by a white guy and picked up by the black guy. She gives them the name Danny Puglisi. Courtney Bates is brought back in for further questioning and she calls the rape a prank that got out of control. Sipowicz and Clark go to Danny Puglisi's apartment and find his father there. Danny's father was one of the Italians who were looking for Calvin George earlier in the day. They get the truth out of Danny and his father goes to make it right with Tony Grimaldi, but as Sipowicz and Clark with later see, it's Danny's father who will pay the price for his son's actions that morning. Later that night, Baldwin, Valerie and Michael have dinner and discuss the next steps with the CFS process. Meantime, Tony and Rita are having dinner at hotel restaurant and eventually they find themselves checking in.moreless
