Episode Summary

"Gone" / Season 2, Episode 9
Broadcast: December 6, 2005
Rebroadcast: April 4, 2006

A story of paint ball, Mannix, a cat, giving the finger and 37 mil living below the poverty line.

While Denise Bauer shops with her housekeeper and the woman's four-year-old son, the unthinkable happens when the boy is kidnapped by a known pedophile. An FBI special agent tells them that technicalities prevent the Bureau from getting involved, but he strongly suggests that, as private citizens, Denise and Brad Chase conduct their own investigation. Their frantic search eventually takes them to Father Ryan (Richard Fancy), a priest who refuses to help since he can't break his confessional seal. Meanwhile, a homeless man throws a rock at Denny Crane for not acknowledging his request for money and Denny shoots him - with a paintball gun. When the man shows up at Crane, Poole & Schmidt for compensation, Denny adamantly refuses to consider his request, but Alan Shore takes the man's case, pitting the friends against each other.
* New Orleans storyline apparently edited out.

Episode Dialogue

One of Brad's friends: You're not gonna go all Mannix on us, are you?
Brad: I never did that. I'll meet you downstairs.
Denise: What did he mean, 'go all Mannix'?
Brad: When I was a kid, my role model was sort of...Mannix. The famous private detective?
Denise: The television character?
__

Brad: Bad answer! You're going to help me get this child back or arms are gonna get broken, ligaments severed. Electrical devices might even get attached to testicles, and I don't mean mine.
__

Denny: Jane Fonda and I used to... you know. Then she turned on me. They caught her in one of those communist bitch hunts.
__

Denise and Brad walk into the church and Denise warns: "Remember. All bark. No biting." * Brad crosses himself*
__

Denise: Give me the finger!
__

Lewiston, watching Denny on Larry King: Our Father, who art in Heaven...

Bad answer! You're going to help me get this child back or arms are gonna get broken, ligaments severed. Electrical devices might even get attached to testicles, and I don't mean mine.

Lullaby and good night
Alan Shore: Get up, Denny. Weíre going to the bathroom.
Alan Shore: Get up! Itíll take two seconds. *He tugs on the rope*

Alan Shore: Get up, Denny. Weíre going to the bathroom.
Denny Crane: Untie the knot. *He turns over*
Alan Shore: It takes too long. Just get up!
Denny Crane: Iím notÖ
Alan Shore: Get up! Itíll take two seconds. *He tugs on the rope*

Denny Crane: Iím notÖ
This isnít working for me

Alan tugs violently at the rope. Denny is pulled out of bed on to the floor.
Alan Shore: Happy?
Denny tugs on the rope, causing Alan to fall on top of him. They are face to face.
Denny Crane: This isnít working for me.


Did You Know... ?

Kirk
Yes, another Star Trek reference: The name of the homeless gentleman was Randall KIRK. For more parallels between "Gone" and Star Trek, including the haves v. the have nots, visit our Trek in the Courtroom page.

Disappearing Storyline #18:
Early show summaries referenced the following s/l with regard to Randall Kirk, the homeless guy:
"Instead of suing, he wants them to represent him in suing the government
for letting his wife die after the hurricane in New Orleans."
Whether they cut it for more Brad Time or there was a network note saying the JUST finished recovering from the "Witches of Mass Destruction" onslaught about the US prescense in Iraq, the very real, very emotional indictment about the handling of Hurricane Katrina was, shall we say, axed.

Cat + Fingers / other shows = guaranteed laughs
There's a great scene in Keen Eddie [Keeping Up Appearances] that I have a feeling influenced the fingers/cat scene, where Mark Valley's [Brad] character Eddie Arlette sets a friends tooth on the kitchen counter. His roommate Fiona accidentally manages to knock it to the floor whereby her cat scampers after it and swallows it. The room quickly clears as Fiona freaks out.  Someone also noted that this same animal/appendage theft took place in "Kiss, Kiss, Bang, Bang".
