Mike and Nikki, who in fact dumped Arthur for him, keep their brand-new hot affair secret. That requires hotel 'nooners'. When colleagues turn up just when a police detective suspects Nikki of 'solliciting', Mike dares not openly contradict him, so she spends a few hours in jail. Paul regularly calls a 'clairvoyant', but on the wrong number, so Stacey can impersonate her to play nasty pranks. The mayor takes Carter, James and Stuart along to experience a new NYPD surveillance vehicle, but spectacularly messes up. Written by KGF Vissers

Mike Flaherty: By 8:00, I was excited. By 8:30, I was even more excited. By 9:00, I could say with out exaggeration that I could not get more excited. By 10:00, that excitement changed into something else. Let's call it tension. And you know me... I'm a problem solver.
Nikki Faber: Oh, Mike.
Mike Flaherty: What can I say? I had some wine, I was thinking of you, and the next thing I know, I'm all over myself.

A well written and enjoyable show.
12 January 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is one of those episode that was very well written and performed perfectly by the actors. The main story involves Mike and Nikki finally getting together. But for some reason Mike wants to keep the relationship a secret. Mike even turns into a 'Judas' when he has to deny Nikki in a public sitting. This story had all the elements that make for an entertaining watch. There is even a nice little scene where Mike is a 'problem solver' that has to be watched since it contains an absolutely funny concept.

Another story involves the Mayor, Stuart, James and Carter being involved with a new police vehicle that is suppose to help with crime. The high tech truck is a monitoring device for the police to better protect the citizens. But when the gang of four are placed in charge of the truck for the evening, things do not go well.

Was very impressed with the writing of this episode. Other than a small skit about Paul calling Stacey's number thinking it's a psychic, the material was top-notched. There a lot of one liners in this show so the viewer has to be on their toes. One of the better episode from season three.
