As the city's temperature rises, Gunter is at his apartment making sausages. Two of Racken's men come in with guns. After a brief fight, they finally subdue Gunter and take him away. They take him to Racken, who tells Gunter that he was lying about the traitor in his organization. He's sure that his men would never fink and has them demonstrate their obedience. After Racken shoots the one who won't humiliate himself, he tells Gunter that Tannhauser has more cops on his payroll so he wants to pay Gunter to find Tannhauser, who is agoraphobic and never leaves his hideout. However, first he wants to be sure that Gunter is loyal to him...

Episode Quotes
Racken's Thug: I don't want any trouble.
Gunter: Then you shouldn't order it for breakfast.

Racken: Tannhauser's whereabouts are "unknown." And I hear wherever his whereabouts are, he never leaves them.
Gunter: He's agoraphobic.
Racken: I could give a shit he's afraid of agora. He should be afraid of me. Man, when I find him, I'm going to chop him up in little pieces, sprinkle him on a pizza. Not even fresh-made. The frozen kind kids pop in the microwave when their mothers are hung over.

Karl: Damn you, Gunter! Guns are not meant to be used during conversations.
Gunter: Silence. I once shot a man during a spelling bee. Right in the middle of "fowl." He was going to win, too. You should have seen his face. Good times.

Miss Leibwächter: I'll have you know a man tried to rape me once. I broke his spinal cord using my buttocks, hmm.

Miss Leibwächter: I'm under orders for you not to leave my sight, even for the toilet. You can watch me urinate first if you like. I'm an exhibitionist and proud of my new artificial vagina.

Gunter: Sorry. The reason I'm late is that I could give a shit about being on time.

Racken: I have a joke. What do you call a vegetarian with diarrhea? A salad shooter.

Braden: You're a heartless fiend. Lt. Viratacus leaves small mouths behind to feed.
Gunter: Are you saying he had goldfish?

Braden: Oh please. I'm not intimidated by cheap scare tactics. My ex-husband used to send me soiled condoms to make me jealous. But they were so small. Epic fail there.

Johann Tannhauser: Did you see her naked?
Miss Leibwächter: She seems ashamed of her body. Would you like me to disrobe for you? I no longer have a penis and experienced my first camel-toe.
Johann Tannhauser: Uhh.... it's not really working for me.

Cultural References
Racken: I saw her in a play. A musical. La Miserable.

Les Misérables is a musical, starting in 1985, which is based on the 1862 novel by Victor Hugo.
