After their code 7, Malloy and Reed find a police dog in their patrol car. Reed admits it is his fault as he didn't close the window before their break. They find that the dog getting into the car was probably easier than them being able to get the aggressive dog out. Next, they attend to a baby kidnapping case. The frantic mother of the child reports that the kidnapper is her long since separated husband, who had threatened to do something drastic unless they reconciled. By the end of their shift, Malloy and Reed, who first and foremost want to see the safe recovery of the infant, will see that there are two sides to this story. Their next call takes them to a restaurant, where a customer, who has just finished his meal, is trying to pay his bill with a less than standard method. While on patrol, Malloy and Reed spot a public transit bus stopped at the side of the road, with the driver and most of the passengers off the bus. The driver reports that a man asleep at the back of the bus... Written by Huggo
