|Season 1, Episode 3|
|First Aired||June 17, 2001|
When a bakery owner is killed, it's up to Federico to put the pieces back together.
At Haussman's All-Natural bread company, a man named Thomas Romano is cleaning the inside of a dough mixer when it is suddenly activated, resulting in him being chopped into several pieces. Unfortunately, the last thing he heard before his death was his teenage employee asking if anyone had ever had sex inside the mixer.
After Nate and Brenda have sex, he says that he wants to go back to Seattle and even though he has known her for only two weeks he asks her to come with him. Meanwhile, Ruth is getting tired of David complaining about the business and is even more disappointed about him not soaking his oatmeal. Nate has decided that he wants Ruth and David to sell the business to Kroehner but then changes his mind since he realizes that it may be his calling.
Claire and Gabe share another romantic evening of sucking toes only to later come out to her car and see that it has been vandalized with phrases like "little piggy lover" and "toe slut". Luckily enough, she finds the severed foot belonging to Thomas Romano at home and puts it in Gabe's locker as payback.
