  • Fay's house is burgled, and some unspecifiedly private movies involving her and Frank, along with usual items of value, are also, suspiciously, pinched. Dominique Dunne guests as a teenager abused by her mother. Scummy narcotics cop Stan Mizelll's autopsy shows he died full of illegal drugs, and his safe deposit box turns out to have a couple of ounces of coke, $40,000 in mint 100s, and a pair of fur-lined handcuffs. At the funeral, Councilmember Detweiler tells Furillo, who he'd previously demanded choose sides, that he's going to bury him and Chief Daniels with the Mizell revelations, but Furillo argues for Fuchs anyway, even after dressing him privately down about Mizell's lack of supervision. Detweiler's further drunk driving problem resolves the issue in Daniels', and thus Furillo and Fuchs' (and the city's) favor. Joe and Bates get a baby abandoned in their back seat. Mick's decision to pay for home nursing his abusive father instead of getting him in a nursing home proves problematic. Mick, J.D. (whose lawyer is involved in the insurance scams) and Washington raid the insurance doc's office at the moment he's quite coincidentally about to lance Bobby's boil. Later, Bobby flirts with the new cop raiding the doctor who sneaks a photo of his naked boiled butt. Renko wins a Thanksgiving turkey in a precinct raffle, but it turns out he has to bring it home live and slaughter it. Howard has religious differences with his nurse girlfriend. Furillo's home movies are mysteriously sent back to him through PD services, and what he and Joyce later view of them is tame indeed (Travanti's actual graduation, the second verit√© moment, after Dunne's bruises); perhaps that plot line ended up mostly on the cutting-room floor.
