This is how you make your lezzie fanbase happy. I'll give you five LLBFF scenes for more of this awesome.
*Jane and Maura are watching the highlights from the previous night's baseball game (gay!)
And, of course, Maura can't help herself... "He is quite the male specimen." "I'd love to 'mega' him." (Well, I can't blame her. It is baseball.)
But apparently Mama Rizzoli and Maura are always up at night painting each other's toenails and gushing about boys. Well, maybe 'gushing' isn't the word I want to use...
Angela: He's a hunk!
(Side Note: Really, Rizzoli & Isles? Baseball. Ownership issues. Divorce. Kick me in the face, why don'tcha... Still a touchy subject for the Dodger fans)
But look who is out of prison these days!
And Tommy has been doing some plumbing work for Maura.
I know it's your first instinct these days, Maura, but please don't repay him with sexual favors.
But apparently there has already been some type of quid pro quo going on...
Jane: All you're doing for him?
And after all the talk of letter writing to Tommy and whatnot, Jane finally calls Tommy a "screw-up" and a "felon," her voice dripping with disapproval. At least the R&I writers have an occasional brush-by with continuity (immediately followed by a "Do I know you?"...)
Maura: He's made some bad choices, but that doesn't make him a bad person.
Jane: Oh yeah, right. He did fix your flush valve.
Maura gets a call that some dude has been found dead in the locker rooms at the baseball stadium. To Jane, this sounds like a great and cheap date idea.
And then Jane slaps Maura's ass.
And finally it's Jane who is following Maura to places that aren't in her job description.
Chief: Go enjoy the game and I'll have Maura out by the bottom of the first.
Yeah, as if Jane would leave Maura alone with all those baseball players...
Baseball Boy can't help but go chat up the hot detective.
Baseball Boy When He Finds Out Jane Actually Knows Who He Is: Impressive. Most women only know the superstar.
Baseball Boy: Call me. Wouldn’t mind being interrogated by you.
Thank Baby Jesus he didn’t hit on Maura. She would have replied with, “I wouldn’t mind polishing your bat.”
Jane joins Maura in the showers (not like that) who is with the dead guy (probably to tell her about the loser that just gave her his number).
Maura finds the death to be suspicious, but Chief thinks nothing's wrong. And he yells at her that "It's just a slip-and-fall."
Korsak: Rumor is Phil's trying to sell the team to Salt Lake City.
(And of course they'd change their names to the Utah Pioneers... With fireworks on the 24th of July. Yeah, I'm a little too excited about the fake sale.)
Maura: The murder weapon is a cylindrical, heavy, hard object.
Team Homicide is getting jock blocked around every corner in the investigation.
Jane: Baseball Boy gave me his number. Maybe it's time I give him a call.
Frost: Yeah... a booty call.
Maura is also intrigued by this date and thinks it's booty call too.
Maura does the logical thing in this situation... She starts to undress.
Maura: Unzip me.
Maura: Because you can’t go like that! We’ll trade clothes. (You know, since they are obviously the same size...)
Maura: You look sexy.
Yeah, she looks slammin'!
Jane and Maura have to stop by the vet's because Tommy took Jo Friday in and stirred up some brouhaha.
Vet: I called the police.
Jane: I am the police.
And Jane gets all angryface at Maura for taking the vet's side that Jo Friday could be depressed.
Jane has her awkward date with Baseball Boy (who looks tiny in comparison to her... he needs to work on his posture)
Maura: Your suit is a real booty call magnet. I got hit on twice. By women.
Jane and Frankie go confront Tommy to rough him up.
Jane wants a print from the inside of a latex glove that Frankie found in the trash at the stadium.
(Yeah, because CSI: Boston would probably be more realistic when it comes to the crime stuff...)
Maura pulls her version of withholding sex so that Jane will go apologize to Tommy when they find out it wasn't him who jacked her things.
And Jane, I thought I told you this before. Do not go on dates with men because they are always murderers.
-Insert Adorable Banter Here About Maura and The Vet Being Wrong About Jo Friday-
Maura: Check be okay, or would you feel safer with cash?
(Also, this is my 100th Sasha Alexander post! I was going to post my Last Lullaby screencaps for the 100th, buuuut... that clearly didn't happen)
