The White Cover

Corinne clashes with Fogarty when she lets go a paraplegic who was caught soliciting during a sting operation. Fogarty, Schuler and Biondi pose as salesmen in a hotel room in the hope of exposing escort girls as prostitutes. The operation is ruined, however, when one of the girls inadvertently mentions a codeword ('Mary Chapin Carpenter'), which causes the other morals officers to rush in before an offence has been committed. Then the paraplegic turns up at the hotel room, saying that he's heard about some action, and exposes himself to Val. Back in the squad room, Schuler wonders if Val is a lesbian. Then a woman enters and Val rushes over to kiss her. The 'woman' turns out to be new squad member Mickey Crawford, fresh from TV (transvestite) patrol, who used to be Val's boyfriend.
