April 26, 2007: Happy Season 7, Episode 21

As I begin, it's now exactly 34 minutes past the end of this week's episode and I'm still laughing. What a riot this was. You know Brass always brings a little bit of humor and he dominated this episode from the start. So, let's see. Our boxer "Happy" gets injected with snake venom, then has a severe allergic reaction to shellfish, which transferred to him via some "very special first-aid." Then as his lungs are tightening and he's about to lose all his air, he gets an arrow through the throat that actually keeps him alive and then he takes a crowbar to the skull. Oh, and that didn't kill him, either. A broken pool chair did. The scenes inside the Sugar Cane Ranch were so funny. Right from the start when Brass is interviewing the owners, Binky and Doris, I was rolling with laughter. Between Binky telling Brass the last time he saw Happy was when he was being rolled away and Doris saying that she fixed his favorite meal - meat - you could just tell that stupidity was going to play a major role in this. Inside the brothel you had Brass interviewing the girls, who all loved Happy until Brass threatened them. Then the ladies start saying he didn't pay, he smelled and he broke wind a lot. You had Greg working his swabs while one of the girls told him to "come see me later, I can show you a better way to get DNA." Binky told Nick the girls don't have any weapons, and Nick goes into a room and finds pepper spray, a taser, brass knuckles and the crowbar, among other things. Then near the end when they come back to get the bartender, he falls over drunk in front of Nick. Back at the station you had Brass pinning the murder on everybody, only to have his cell phone ring and Dr. Robbins tell him he's wrong, every time. And then Catherine is down with the Doc, and she comments how Happy might have the "world's ugliest johnson." But I think the best line in the whole show was when the girl who devised the whole plan started singing to Brass and he responded with, "Do I look like Paula Abdul?" There certainly were some softer moments, too, like in the trailer with the old man. After Sara told Nick it looked like the arrow came through the window, the old man said that "even an idiot could see that." But he was mighty impressed with Sara, when she started quoting Longfellow* back to him. A little Grissom rubbing off on her there. Speaking of a little Grissom rubbing off, we've finally confirmed once and for all that Sara and Gil are gettin' it on. That was a cute scene with the two of them talking about sex. She asked him if he had ever paid for sex and then got this: Gil: Sex without love makes you sad. Sara: I guess I don't make you sad. Gil: No, you make me happy. That's certainly the most intimate detail we've gotten about GSR so far. Overall, a funny, lighthearted romp and a lot of the Captain, which is always good in my book. As usual, let me know what you thought about the episode and, of course, I'm sure there will be a ton of GSR talk, too! Until next week, friends. * Note: I'm assuming that since the old man was quoting Longfellow to Sara and Nick earlier, that she was quoting the same back. Though, just like Nick, I'm not familiar with the work of Longfellow, so that's just pure assumption on my part. And I didn't tape it, so I can't Google the lines she said. show less
