  • Raimy goes to meet a cop from another department, missing how he smirks at her entrance. She's professional as he finally remarks on "you never called me back." Raimy is then hit with flashes of how the two had a very steamy hook-up after a night of drinking and has to deal with a one-night stand she never met before.
    • She relates it to Gordo who starts reciting "shame" at her and when Raimy stands up to go, he yells "wait, I still have 87 shames left!"
  • Raimy is talking to Frank about a case and Gordo stumbles in, drunk, makes fun of Raimy for being a loser, and suggesting that she needs to get laid. All while Frank is listening over the radio. After Raimy sends Gordo on his way and an awkward silence, Frank says "So Gordo still lives next door huh?"
