The episode begins with Epstein taking out a car for a test drive. Andy and Sam meanwhile are driving around; suddenly Andy sees something and tells Sam to stop the car. Turns out it’s an ice-cream truck, and she stopped so she could cool herself down with some ice cream, justifying it by saying “its summer”. Meanwhile Nick asks Gail about the kiss they shared the earlier night. She tells him that she did a stupid thing as she was drunk. Shaw meanwhile briefs the guys, about a street ball tournament that is going to be held in their area, and if the local team loses there could be trouble, hence they need to be on the lookout. Frank also informs everyone that, there will be a rotation, in who works with the detectives. Peck reveals that she wants to apply for the rotation, although Traci was already thinking of applying. ..Read the full recap
Traci: You're not seriously thinking about applying, are you? You're not qualified.
Gail: And you are?
Traci: Yeah because I've been busting my ass for months. I've been taking all the courses.
Gail: Well then I'm sure you will get it.
Sam: That's what I love about you, McNally.
Andy: What? My naive belief in humanity?
Sam: Your relentless optimism in the face of experience, research and reality. That takes stones, big people-loving stones.
Andy: Oh, well. Somebody's gotta love 'em.
Jerry: Don't expect me to go easy on you. You're first day I'm going to open a big old can of whoop-ass. Alright, let's celebrate. I'm thinking something bubbly.
Traci: You know, it's been a long day and I kind of want to go home to Leo.
Jerry: Yeah, I'm good with that. You're happy though, right? About the rotation?
Traci: Yeah, are you?
Jeryy: Yeah! No, it's going to be great.
Andy: I guess you were right.
Sam: About what?
Andy: Reality. Dov slammed right into it today. You know, you're right. You expect the worst and you'll never be disappointed.
Sam: Are you kidding me? You believed in him. If Dov's clear it's because of you guys.
Sam: You coming over?
Andy: That's optimism.
Sam: Nah, that's experience.
