Lieutenant Scanlon pays an unwelcome visit to the 12th precinct to investigate the origins of an anonymous letter sent by an officer who admits to being a homosexual. Barney doesn't see the issue, but homophobic Scanlon is itching to weed out the author of the letter, and decides to question each officer of the 12th precinct in hopes finding out who it is. During the investigation Barney finds out, in confidence, that it is Officer Zetelli but refuses to tell Scanlon. Meanwhile, a frustrated office worker is arrested when he destroys the MUSAK system in his office because he believes that it is delivering subliminal messages.

When this episode airs in repeats, the name of the Muzak Corporation is masked out. The actors lips move, but the sound is cut. It is still easy to tell what the line is due to context. While it has come to be a generic term for inoffensive music (as "Kleenex" has for facial tissues), the Muzak Corporation is a real corporation extant as of 2020. See more
