- She's just playing it cool.

- Look into her eyes.

They're pools of pure tranquility.

You think you can read a perp

better than me?

You've lost it. You know that, right?

Happens to the best of us.

You used to investigate real crime.

Now you're chasing around

cheating husbands,

hanging outside of crappy motels

in Venice.

You know what makes this country great?

It's not that everybody's

cheating on their spouses,

because they're not.

It's that everyone unconsciously

feels cheated.

That's right. By the government,

by their bosses, by Whole Foods.

And then they transfer that suspicion

onto their loved one.

And it's that very feeling

that keeps me in such great business.

I'm thinking of buying a Ferrari.

Well, I just put 50 bucks

into my IRA account.

And in lieu of getting a Tesla,

I'm gonna retire soon-ish.

- That job really wears on a person.

- It does. It really does.

- Hey, uh, you got new neighbors.

- On the other side? When?

Are you not paying attention?

A couple of weeks ago.


Looks like a single mom and her kid.

- Maybe the kid took the dump.

- I just saw nervous fidgeting.

That was nervous fidgeting.

That's definitely nervous fidgeting.

Of course Candy's fidgeting.

You know where I found her?

I found her abandoned

in a foreclosed house in Burbank.

Buona sera, Handsome.

Ah... Buona sera, Esta.

Hmm. Why are we wishing each other

good evening?

It is just... an okay sera. Just okay.

Well, it just started.

It could get a lot better.

Mmm. I don't think so.

I still don't know what she sees in you.

I'm guessing she likes to be depressed.

I could say the same thing about your dog.

Yeah. We're gonna go back on our walk.

I get it.

Your dog has had a tragic history.

But don't let her shit on my lawn.
