|“||Hunting down a killer bride so Buzz won't get the worst possible rating on his first tour of duty and we can all still go to the Dodger game.||”|

Closing the CaseEdit
- This episode is the tenth annual "Flynn and Provenza" episode, written as always by Adam Belanoff. Like the first, To Protect & to Serve, this episode centers around Flynn and Provenza's efforts to get to a Los Angeles Dodgers game when a murder takes place. It also contains elements of other previous episodes, notably a wedding gone wrong, seen previously in Saving Face, and a variation on the traditional line, "With me, with me!.
The Search for Alice HerreraEdit
- With the help of a mysterious friend, later revealed to be TJ Shaw, Rusty locates Alice's cell phone number in hopes of remotely accessing her voicemail as Slider had destroyed her phone. Sharon suggests to him that if the phone is pre-paid, Alice's account may still be active and thus he can access her voicemail if he can break her password. With some advice from Buzz, Tao and Flynn, Rusty tries to no avail. TJ is able to find out that Alice's security question is "Sister's Name" and her answer is "Paloma." After learning from Buzz that Paloma is Spanish for dove and remembering that the birds Alice drew everywhere reminded her of her sister, Rusty tries "dove" as Alice's password. It is proven to be correct and an ecstatic Rusty is able to access Alice's voicemail.
- Rusty interviews Dr. Morales, who describes the role of the Medical Examiner in finding missing people. We also learn Dr. Morales' first name.
