Episode Summary

EDIT
A new case gets Jake and Mal caught in the middle of a daylight-kidnapping gang, which they quickly discover is all just a game. The game takes a sinister turn when one of the players turns up dead, and it's up to the Doyle P.I. Agency to find the killer in a very real murder. Des practises his investigative skills by tailing Tinny and finds out some very disturbing information.moreless

  • So Jake has been "off" women since the series went on hiatus last spring?

    9.5
    That does explain a lot of what was behind his personal issues at the start of this season. He did look seriously hot in his gottchies though!



    At first I found myself shaking my head at the "case" that wasn't. And just when you thought that it had come to a conclusion, they found some other little detail to keep them going on it. Even though "it" was supposed to be a game. However, I guess it would be hard to tell that to the kinky dead guy with fatal latex glove in his mouth.



    Interesting development that Leslie is boinking the mayor. Rather hypocritical of her after her comments to and about Jake last season, don't you think?



    And has Des really had cause to learn that being an investigator has it's downsides...?



    And the episode ends with Jake in the same position as he so often is in his personal life: both feet firmly inserted in his mouth. This DA promises to be an interesting wrinkle in Jake's life, both personal and professional.moreless

    • (Jake explains why he smells like booze)
      Jake: ...I had to smash a pint on a guy's head; it's a long story.
      Mal: See, ever since you started this 'love moratorium', you've been totally out of whack.
      Jake: 'Love moratorium'? What is wrong with you? I'm taking a break from women for a while, that's all. And stop talking about my sex life, you're going to make me puke.
      Mal: Fine, we'll wait in silence.

    • (Jake pulls the mask off a would-be kidnapper)
      Jake: Do I know you?
      (she kicks him between the legs and escapes)
      Jake: (groans) I'll take that as a yes.

    • Mal: [Rebecca Jones] rented the van that kidnapped her husband? She must have known we'd find that out.
      Jake: Maybe she just thinks we're terrible investigators.

    • Jake: I don't want you to die; sue me.
      Mal: You should write greeting cards, you've got a real flair for sentiment.

    • Mal: Jake, you might be the best detective I've ever known, but as a person, you're an accident waiting to happen.
      Jake: What did you just say?
      Mal: I said you're an emotional train-wreck with behavioural disorders.
      Jake: No, no, no; before that.
      Mal: I called you a moron.
      Jake: No, you said I was the best detective you've ever known.
      Mal: No, I didn't.

    • Mal: It's clear why Leslie wants nothing to do with you; you never listen to a word she says.
      Jake: I listen... I just have a problem with the obeying parts.

    • (into listening device, while watching Tinny, the "subject")
      Des: Subject is smuggling in large amounts of tubing. Best case scenario: building possible gerbil colony.

    • Jake: It's obvious to me that you're worth it; I just hope, I mean, I pray, really, that I never end up having to, you know... pay for sex.
      Woman at Bar: Pay for sex?
      Walter: Hey, there you are! Oh, good, you ran into each other, that's good, that's good, 'cause I was going to introduce you anyway. Allison Jenkins, this is Jake Doyle. Allison's the new Crown Attorney.
      Jake: Of course you are!

  • ALLUSIONS (1)

    • (Des runs out of the room)
      Tinny: Okay, what's with Forrest?
      Rose: He's a man on a mission.

      Tinny refers to Des as "Forrest" in reference to the movie character Forrest Gump, from the 1994 movie of the same name, portrayed by Tom Hanks. The character, at one point in his life, simply got up and ran; earlier on in the movie, running saved him from bullies. A catch-phrase from the movie is, "Run, Forrest, run!"
