Quotes

Monroe: You start messing with the status quo, there are some people who might not be exactly sanguine about that. And what I am doing with you is definitely messing with the status quo.
Nick Burkhardt: I'm not going to ask for any more of your help.
Monroe: Screw that. I'm not running. You ask me for all the help you need. I've never been much of a status quo kind of guy. And next time, we'll be ready for them.

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")
