"There are no mountains in Baltimore."

This is a top episode not only for the central dramatic storyline but also for a very memorable scene in a convenience store involving Kyle Secor's character Tim Bayliss.

After an inexplicable tragedy occurs to an old friend of Lt. Al Giardello, we are given deeper insight into his character through this episode. He spends the majority of the episode in a state of shock and frustration. One of the great things about this show is that all of the terrific principal actors get a chance to shine and this was one of Yaphet Kotto's. It's most evident in two quietly affecting scenes, one being an inquisitive conversation with a suspect and the other between him and journalist Sam Thorne's daughter Monica, late in the episode.

Munch has a few funny moments; there's also a continuing subplot involving Det. Beau Felton (Daniel Baldwin). The rest of the ensemble offer quality support to the main action. Guest starring as Sam Thorne, Joe Morton (also seen in the previous episode) is his usual first-rate self and Maggie Rush, as his daughter, is effective in a smaller role.

"Happy to Be Here" is overall an excellent episode with memorable dialogue.
