Quotes

Nick Burkhardt: You ever seen one of these?
[Shows Monroe a drawing]
Monroe: A Mauzhertz. Pretty favorable likeness actually, given the subject.
Nick Burkhardt: Well, I think I saw one and he could be involved in a murder.
Monroe: There's a reason you people never wrote about them. They never do anything worth writing about. This whole cartoon thing they got going, such a racket.
Nick Burkhardt: So they're harmless?
Monroe: Yeah. I mean you say "Boo" and they scurry off to their safety zones. They're very predictable that way.
Nick Burkhardt: What about a Lausenschlange?
Monroe: ...

A man named Leonard "Lenny" Drake is found dead in a garbage truck and Nick and Hank investigate the case. They find blood in the dumpster near his building and a track of blood to the parking garage. The manager explains that the tenant was a violent man that lived in his apartment with the gorgeous Natalie Havershaw. In the previous night, they had an argument and the tenants Marty Burgess first and the lawyer Mason Snyder then had come to protect her. Marty returned to his apartment while Lenny and Mason continued to argue. Then Mason escorted her to her car and she left the building to check in a hotel.

Nick and Hank visits Marty at his junk shop and Nick sees that Marty looked like a mouse. Then they visit Mason and Nick sees that the lawyer looked like a snake. Nick visits Monroe and learns that the creatures are the harmless and coward Mauzhertz and the dangerous and lethal Lausenschlange respectively. Then Monroe receives a phone call relative to a work and Nick leaves him, but Monroe receives a message instead. When another man is found dead in the dumpster of a repair shop in the same "modus-operandis" and Nick believes the cases are connected.

"Of Mouse and Man" is a great episode of "Grimm", with a well resolved story about a harmless man victim of child abuse by his father that feels released after his death. However his trauma does not allow him to get rid of the image of his father. How the "message" received by Monroe will affect his relationship with Nick? My vote is nine.

Title (Brazil): "Sobre Ratos e Homens" ("About Mice and Men")
