“Rizzoli & Isles” Very Special Lesbian Episode Recap (1.06): “I Kissed a Girl”


Because the victim and Rizzoli look alike, the detectives concoct a plan for her to set up dates on the same sites and troll for possible suspect in lesbian bars. Wow, that’s some stellar police work there. Naturally, Isles sets up her online dating profile. You’ve got to keep track of what your woman is up to. There’s a big discussion over whether Isles is “femme,” “butch,” “lipstick,” “Chapstick” or “sporty.” Isles seems perplexed that Rizzoli could be considered “butch.” Sweetie, have you looked at your girlfriend recently?

Setting up her online profile clearly set the mood because next they’re in Rizzoli’s house drinking wine on her bed. Because all straight women drink wine together in bed when there are also couches and armchairs in the house. Leaning back, Rizzoli says, “Maybe I should be a lesbian.” To which every lesbian watching at home screams: DO IT!

Rizzoli also insists Isles go with her undercover to the lesbian bar. Seriously, this show is ridiculously gay. While checking her personal ad responses, one of the ladies profiles says she has front row tickets to the Celtics and Rizzoli acknowledges, “Well, I might flip for that.” And then this dialog happens.

Isles: I wonder what kind of women we would like if we liked women.
Rizzoli: What? Well, first of all, I would be the guy.
I: That’s a cliché. Why would you be the guy?
R: Because.
I: Because you’re bossy?
R: So are you.
I: No, I’m not.
R: Yes, you are. You’re just soft and polite when you’re bossing people around.
I: Well it’s a good thing you’re not my type.
R: What do you mean I’m not your type? That is so rude.
I: Well, you don’t know how to relax. And you wear your shoes and your clothes to bed. And you just admitted you’re bossy.
R: Yeah, I’m bossy. You put my picture and profile on a gay dating site and I’m bossy. Right. After I said no by the way — what are you doing?
I: Meditating, it’s too stressful to argue with you.

And then Isles “accidentally” spends the night. The old "guess I feel asleep while I was meditating” chestnut. They pretend to talk about Jorge again and Jane says, “If I wanted someone to talk the dog with me and talk about my feelings I’d be gay.” And, once more, all the lesbians scream at their screens: TRY IT!
