Episode Summary

EDIT
Tommy Richardson's wife, Laurie, stops by to pick up his time records as Tommy has transferred to another precinct. Laurie expresses some concerns about his behavior, especially after she catches him in a phone conversation with another woman; she also shows Bobby and Diane signs of physical abuse. Bobby and Diane contact the woman that Laurie caught Tommy having a phone conversation and interview her, but it leads to nothing but more trouble for Tommy's wife. Meanwhile, Greg and Jill look into death of a man who was shot and found in the bathtub of his former girlfriend. The ex-girlfriend's father is also on the scene and suffering from the electric shock he received while trying to use an electric chain saw in the bathtub. Sylvia accompanies Andy to the hospital where he is scheduled for his CAT scan. Unfortunately, the test starts to go bad when Andy begins to experience chest pains. Tommy comes to the squad and lets Bobby know that no matter what they do, they haven't got any physical evidence. Tommy is unaware that his wife was listening and she agrees to wear the wire that will be used to help put him away when he incriminates himself. Sylvia and Andy decide to ignore Dr. Talbot's advice and go with the opinion of Dr. Mondzac, a doctor that Andy is more comfortable with.moreless

  • Andy Sipowicz, not a fan of doctors

    9.0
    Watching Andy break down in this episode is pretty sad. Knowing that he has a substance abuse problem and not wanting any valium before going in the CAT scan machine, he is a tough cookie. His wife Sylvia shows great support and heart arguing with Dr. Talbot and defending Andy, eventually agreeing to a new doctor to do Andy's surgery. If Dr Mondzac hadn't come to talk to Andy, this may not have happened. Andy has a very good rapport with Dr Mondzac andobviously respects him alot. Meanwhile, Diane and Bobby bust Tommy Richardson with the help of his wife, who he called a mutt. Tommy makes smart aleck references to Diane and Bobby's relationship and Diane lets him have it right back in classic Diane fashion.moreless
