Taking Your Toys Away

Our antagonists have come to their senses and offer up two reasonable cocktails this week. Boring? Maybe, but a least they're quaffable. They also ponder Peralta-Tauchman trade, analyze the physical comedy stylings of Alex Wood, celebrate a great first month. But things really get cooking when Ben asks Matthew what's been bugging him all week. The rage is palpable.
