Episode Summary

EDIT
The tension that has been building between Andy and Connie almost comes to a head after the babysitter has to cancel and Andy can't stay behind to watch the baby until the replace arrives. They exchange a few words with ends with Andy saying he is leaving. Theo, who must have overheard some of their discussion, asks his father if he will be coming back, after all he said he was leaving. Andy tells him he will never leave him as Connie watches the pair leave their home together. Sipowicz arrives late to the crime scene where Clark Jr., Medavoy and Jones are beginning to investigate the death of an 18-year-old Pakistani woman. McDowell arrives to the squad late, citing babysitter problems, which she assures Sipowicz are taken care of. A man, Gordon Dillit, and his wife come in to report that he was mugged and his wife's antique watch was stolen. As he is still in a good mood from the morning's events, Sipowicz says the man is a "hen pecked slob." Jones and Medavoy interview the man who might be the father of their victim and he confirms for them that it is his daughter. Medavoy notes that the man doesn't seem to be affected in anyway by his daughter's death. Ortiz and McDowell are on the scene of the death of a "tranny pros" named "Lana" where Sipowicz and Clark Jr. join them. Sipowicz and Clark Jr. talk to the hotel manager and he gives them a license plate number to check; but Sipowicz's conduct at the scene, that is in the questioning of the manager and his interaction with his fellow detectives this morning, especially McDowell, leave much too be desired. Jones and Medavoy are off to visit the boyfriend of their victim, as the other detectives return to the squad. They report to Rodriguez that they got a hit off the license plate, it belonged Dillit, the man they saw earlier that morning. Sipowicz and Clark Jr. have a conversation with Dillit. They inform his that the prostitute was a transvestite. Dillit tells them that not long after he and the prostitute had set a price, another man entered the room and held him at knife point, planning to keep him until midnight, when he could get Dillit to use his ATM card again. He tells them that he got out of the room, when the prostitute and the man with the knife got into a fight. When he came in to report the missing watch, he didn't want his wife to know about the prostitute. Jones and Medavoy talk with their victim's boyfriend who tells them he doesn't know where she is. When they inform her that she is dead, his reaction isn't such that makes them suspicious of him, but they ask him to stick around until they check out his story. The detectives are bringing Rodriguez up to speed on their case when a woman comes into the squad asking to speak to someone about the Yusuf murder case. Jones and Medavoy talk with the woman who says she is the victim's cousin and she tells them that the she overheard her uncle tell her father that he killed his daughter as an "honor killing." They ask for her further cooperation, but promise to keep her out of it, if at all possible. John Irvin passes a message on to Sipowicz from Clark Jr. about their case. Sipowicz asks him how he likes living in his new apartment, telling him that he's heard rumors they are cracking down on cohabitating detectives. John Irvin tells Sipowicz that he doesn't want to tell him how to live his life, but he think about giving his current situation some time to work itself out. Sipowicz and Clark Jr. talk to Randy, the man that "Lana" had made several phone calls to the night before. This man picks up the fact the "Lana" is dead and tells them Gordon Dillit did it. He denies running a "Murphy Game" on Dillit and claims that when he came in, Dillit ran out covered in blood. Jones and Medavoy talk with their victim's father again, only this time as a suspect. The father denies killing his daughter, but he does admit to telling people that he killed his daughter, in order to get respect back in his community. Sipowicz and Clark Jr. run their case by Haywood, but they are still waiting for McDowell and Ortiz to bring in the woman that Dillet claimed he ran by when exiting the building. McDowell and Ortiz bring in and talk with "Monika" who tells them she saw a man leave the place with blood on his pants; she also says she saw the man who looked out for "Lana." Jones and Medavoy canvas the area where a knife was found that may have been used in their victim's murder. They encounter a crazy homeless man, who tells them about someone named "Derrick," but they also find their victim's wallet amongst the homeless man's possessions. Back at the squad, Sipowicz and Clark Jr. go to have another conversation with Dillit; they tell him that they know he is homophobe. They tell him about the "Monika" backing up Randy's story; they suggest that if he wants to get out from under this, he'd better give them permission to search his clothes. Jones and Medavoy tell Rodriguez about the outcome of their case, the boyfriend and the father are both going to be let go and the homeless man charged. The detectives find more evidence that points toward Randy as "Lana"'s killer, he had a past history with "Monika" and also was seen pawning the watch earlier this morning. With this new evidence in hand, Sipowicz and Clark Jr. go back at Randy. With evidence mounting against him, Randy confesses the truth. As the boyfriend and father are leaving the precinct, the father realizes that his daughter's death was his fault, as he wasn't strong enough to make her behave like a "proper woman." Back upstairs, McDowell gets ready to leave, but Sipowicz tells her he will be another hour, maybe more. After she leaves, Clark Jr. tells him the 5s can wait, but the problem he is avoiding isn't going to go away, he inevitably has to face it. Dillit comes upstairs and is able to retrieve his wife's watch, he comments to Sipowicz that sitting in the cell today made him realize how precious his relationship with his wife is. And finally John Irvin passes onto to Sipowicz the name of great florist who does wonderful things with "Gerber Daisies." At the Sipowicz/McDowell household, with daisies in hand, Andy returns home, where Connie has made them a nice dinner. They decide that they have been fighting about nothing that really matters. They agree to start over again.moreless
