Episode Summary

EDIT
Vehicles in the precinct's parking lot are broken into, including Clark Jr.'s, and since he was just thrown out of his father's home, it contained all his possessions, including his detective shield. McDowell and Gibson work a homicide case, meanwhile the other detectives scramble to help cover Clark Jr.'s ass. If the problem doesn't get resolved by the end of the day, Rodriguez wants to know the whole story, until then he'll ask no more questions. A robbery victim reports that a cop ripped him off and Sipowicz and Clark Jr. follow a few leads. McDowell's interview of their homicide victim's pregnant girlfriend goes bad when the girl flips out after Gibson tells her that her boyfriend didn't make it. Sipowicz and Clark Jr. go to a pawn shop where someone flashing a shield was pawning items taken from the lot. They find out that Anti-crime is on the case, when they all hear that a shield bearing perp was captured by some uniforms. McDowell and Gibson interview their victim's boss and find out about the robbery their victim was in on that put the boss out of business. McDowell goes back to the girlfriend and gets the story and the name of their victim's accomplice, RJ. The shield bearing perp doesn't pan out but Medavoy and Jones find someone better for Sipowicz to question. He points them to another suspect that gets stripped of his dignity and Clark Jr.'s clothes. He names a dealer whose grace he got back into by giving him the shield. Gibson shows McDowell a trick which gets RJ to confess to a murder. Sipowicz asks McDowell if she can dress like a prostitute (which she seems a little reluctant to do) so that they can get to the dealer that has Clark Jr.'s shield. The operation is successful and the shield is recovered. Valerie and Baldwin meet in the hallway and discuss the fact they haven't been able to spend anytime together. He suggests to her that spontaneity might be needed. McDowell confronts the girl's parents and afterwards needs someone to talk with; Andy offers her conversation after they have a fish stick dinner with Theo. Connie tells Andy what she had previously told Diane, about the child she gave up for adoption when she was fifteen. The day's events got to her and she asks Andy what he thinks about her going to look her daughter up; Andy suggests that she doesn't, as just dropping in on her daughter would just unnecessarily disrupt her life. He suggests that she just wait until her daughter is ready to find her.moreless
