While meeting up in Mabel's apartment, Charles, Oliver, and Mabel start to hear Bunny's voice coming through the vent that leads to her apartment. But she's dead. Right? Well, kind of; her spirit—and voice—lives on through someone else.
Wanting to figure out what's causing all the ruckus, the trio decides to tunnel through the air vents and into Bunny's apartment, where they find her foul-mouthed parrot, Mrs. Gambolini, to be the one speaking like her owner. While in her apartment, they decide to snoop around and remove all evidence that could implicate them, which includes a slew of rude messages that Oliver sent to her. However, while inside, residents Uma Heller (Jackie Hoffman) and Howard Morris (Michael Cyril Creighton) open her door and walk in, as Uma is hoping to take with her a noteworthy (and semi-pornographic) painting of Bunny's.
They run into Bunny's bedroom and hide in the closet, though the footsteps get closer and closer as the painting is hanging up in the bedroom. But when Uma and Howard walk in, there's an empty space where the painting should be. The two leave shortly after, though while hiding in the closet, Mabel makes a discovery: there's an elevator hidden behind Bunny's wide array of fur coats that leads down to the back of the Arconia by the dumpsters.
After this discovery, Charles heads back up to his apartment and discovers that the painting is now hanging up in his apartment. Who is toting around this massive painting from room to room constantly? After telling Oliver and Mabel about this, they decide to pull off a little switcheroo. Here's the plan: Oliver and Mabel will bring the painting to Charles, who will be waiting for them outside of the elevator that leads to Bunny's closet. He'll sneak the painting back into the apartment and onto Bunny's wall while everyone's gathered for her memorial.
Oh, yeah. There's a memorial for Bunny. With her gone, it only seemed right for the residents of the Arconia to throw a small memorial to remember their often-times divisive and rude board president. But at the gathering, a new figure comes front-and-center, ready to sniff out who murdered her daughter, Bunny. And that, my friends, is a face that we haven't seen in quite a while on the big screen: Shirley MacLaine. She's playing Leonora Folger, Bunny's mother, who has a long past with the Arconia and knows quite a bit about the history of the building and its residents.
Through her, we're able to learn a few things about the painting. It turns out that it's actually depicting Charles' father with a semi-nude woman, and the painting was done by Rose Cooper, whom his father was having an affair with. Cooper also lived across the street from the Arconia years ago. But okay, back to the story.
When it comes time for the scheme to go down, Charles gets locked outside of the door to the elevator by the apartment building's dumpsters, leaving him, Oliver, and Mabel out in the open with the stolen painting. As other people start to head over to the dumpsters, they have to hide the painting between those very dumpsters, hoping to retrieve it later. However, upon returning, the painting is (of course) gone.
While visiting Schumer's penthouse apartment to talk about the proposed series, Oliver notices—while Schumer poorly plays away on the bassoon—that the painting is hanging up in her apartment, as she apparently found it in the dumpster. However, later on when Oliver, Charles, Mabel, and Leonora head up to Schumer's apartment, Leonora proclaims that the painting in her apartment is not the original—it's a dupe.
Now that we know the painting that's being moved from room to room is a fake, Charles, Oliver, and Mabel are left with quite a bit up in the air with regard to their investigation. However, we're given five final words to end off the second episode, and they happen to come straight from the beak of Bunny's parrot (which has now taken up residence in Oliver's apartment).
"I know who did it."
