Phil basks in having the upper hand and doesn't he make no attempt to hide it. This evening, he gets a call from an employer looking for a reference for Ricky. When the Butcher asks his boss if he'll give the reference he tells him he needs to think about it. Phil has more fish to fry though as Shirley thinks he was playing away as he never came home last night. We know where he was but he doesn't want anyone knowing.
