I was a little amused that this episode's called "Living Proof" like the movie Angie Harmon was in with Harry Connick Jr. and Bernadette Peters. Did I watch Living Proof just for Angie and her incredible hotness? Well, actually no. I also watched it because I'm a little bit in love with HCJ (he married Grace Adler!) and I'm a lot in love with Bernadette Peters (she's Karen Walker's sister!). But mostly it was for Angie.
*Anywho, the episode opens with some pregnant broad running through the woods before getting stabbed. And then saved by Mutton Chops Man.
*Someone's creepin' on Jane and Maura through the trees!
The girls are having a romantic day at the spa... Couples' massage (which they engage in outside of the spa too...). Naked sauna time. Naked clay baths.
Jane: Spending 80 bucks to be submerged in Utah dirt is still a waste of money.
Maura: It's my gift to you.
Well, the traditional one year anniversary gift is paper...
Jane: I'm hungry.
Unfortunately, Mutton Chop Man has to ruin their date with his screaming and his dead woman carrying...
The duo is able to get robed remarkably fast and Maura realizes that she can deliver the dead chick's baby.
Maura: I need your hand.
Yeah, it is best to look away, Jane, because...
So, why was the pregnant chick just moseying about in the woods?
Jane: Maybe she was "out trolling for pickles."
(Am I missing something? Doesn't that leave a whole 60% of pregnant women...?)
Jane: We'll find the baby daddy!
*Meanwhile, back at the ranch...
Awww, Frankie wants to make sure his sister had a good time on her date. Precious.
And apparently Angela is all up on Jane's business and bringing her lunch and whatnot...
Jane: She's scrubbin' the grout with a toothbrush.
Ummm, how else are you supposed to clean the grout?
But painting Jane's place is a bit much...
Jane: This reminds me of the time that I asked for a bunk bed and you surprised me with a pink canopy.
*Jane threatens to punch Maura because Maura finds Angela endearing.
Maura distracts Jane with derricious stomach contents from the pregnant chick's autopsy.
(That is actually my favorite game to play at Costco or the grocery store. The "Judge People Based On What's In Their Cart" game.)
Jane talks about visiting Baby JD and Maura confesses that she already visited him that morning.
Me: Praise Jesus! No more "pickles" for either of you, okay?
Frost pops in to take Jane to the dead chick's motel room.
As Jane leaves, Maura gives her the "I Crave Your Tuna" look:
Maura: She had quite robust reproductive organs.
Frost: First thing I look for. (Who doesn't love birthing hips and shiny uteri?)
(I was actually surprised that Maura didn't interject here with talk of men being predisposed, due to natural selection, to being attracted to women with certain physical characteristics that tend to indicate "robust reproductive organs.")
Anywho, they find out that Baby JD has parents.
(Being adopted, this made me really happy, which is why I'm including the quote in this recap.)
*In other news, Frankie has been shadowing Korsak because he wants to be a detective like his big sis.
Jane: You two dating?
*Cut to Angela's yard sale at Jane's place.
Maura finds it simply adorable that Jane is "not very good at sales."
Jane: How do we know that?
(My guess is that she grew up thinking her biological father is Bob Barker and she watched a lot of The Price is Right in an attempt to try and connect with him on some level.)
Jane: Well, stop. You don't have a baby.
Jane: Babies aren't accessories.
(Oh no, I can't bear to have another one of my favorite couples break up because of the baby disagreement...)
Maura pretends to love a painting because Angela painted it...
Maura shows Jane how you sell something at a yard sale.
Maura: It's more valuable the less it's played with...
(You really shouldn't judge people based on how many other people have played with them, Maura...)
(Maura does actually wink at Jane, but winks do not screencap well and I refuse to get involved with gifs)
*Jane Rizzoli says no to Crocs.
*The team had ruled out Pregnant Chick's fisherman husband because he was off filming Deadliest Catch and couldn't have done it. But in classic Rizzoli & Isles writing, of course he took a little lifeboat to shore to trek down from Canada, killing his alibi (see "Money For Nothing" for comparison...)
*What a disappointing use of hand sanitizer:
*And after a hard day's work on a case, the first thing to do is to get naked with your girlfriend:
